One of my favorite TV series is Halt and Catch Fire. The show takes place in the early 1980‘s and is about creating personal computers and the beginning of the internet. What I enjoy about the show are the characters & their development. The computer info is interesting but not the main draw for me. It‘s the same with this story. I am not a gamer but the character development drew me in. This is just a wonderful story to spend time with. #TOB23

Hooked_on_books I really liked this one, too. ☺️ 2mo

Cinfhen Excellent review!!! Exactly how I felt!! 2mo
sarahbarnes Great review! I haven‘t read this one because the subject of gaming didn‘t sound interesting to me, but your review is making me reconsider! 2mo
Ruthiella I‘m definitely interested in this. I started another book by Zevin years ago and DNFed it, but I‘m willing to give her another try. 2mo
Readerann I saw this just won the Goodreads award for fiction! I‘m glad I had already placed my library hold (#40 of 72 now). 2mo
Megabooks I have not watched that show, but I love character-driven stories, so thank you for letting me know about that tv show. I loved this book for that reason too. (edited) 2mo
Megabooks Excellent review as well! 2mo
Suet624 @BarbaraBB I've watched the series twice and I'm ready for another viewing. :) 2mo
Suet624 @squirrelbrain @hooked_on_books I'm so glad you liked this too. 2mo
Suet624 @Cinfhen Somehow Zevin made those characters mean an awful lot to me. :) 2mo
Suet624 @sarahbarnes I put off reading this for a very long time and it's only because of the TOB that I read it. But it's really just a lovely story about three very dear individuals. 2mo
Suet624 @Ruthiella Well, I've noticed there are some folks who really didn't like it, so maybe take a peek and see what you think. 2mo
Suet624 @Readerann I saw that too! Hopefully that hold gets to you soon. 2mo
Suet624 @Megabooks As I mentioned to Barbara, I've watched this series twice already and am ready to watch it again. Each character has such an interesting character arc. I hope you can find it and I sure hope you enjoy it. :) 2mo
kspenmoll Your review is a help! Now I will put a library hold on it. 💕 2mo

Book #40 for 2022 done! I love Rom-Com's but had gotten burned out on them because they can become very predictable. This book broke that curse for me, it was adorable, funny and relatable. Highly recommend

Not sure this held up to the hype. Many different points of view that are kinda sorta connected but not really. At first, I liked the idea of the novel but it just didn‘t pan out. This book was all over the place and the ending was just strange. Book #40 in 2022

Interesting, but best to be read instead of listening, is my opinion.

Going for some quick nostalgia today. I picked up the Babysitters Club book collection tin a while ago and figured I should revisit the fun of middle school. #40-2022

Book #40
✅ Chapters Have Titles: Through My Window by Ariana Godoy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
New Author
It was good. I laughed SO HARD & LOVED the 1st half. Then, it all became too repetitive. This book is SUPER smutty, which I don't mind, BUT P. Douglas comes short. It became a little TOO MUCH. Almost every chapter had explicit content/scenes to the point you didn't care anymore. I already knew what they would do & say to each other. Good book, but unrealistic.

WJCintron Besides that, I really cared about the MC and how they were developed. Even the side characters. The story kept me reading, which is good. Hence the rating. Good book, but unrealistic. 11mo

I‘m so thankful to #ReadingAfrica22 &
#Booked2022 for giving me the extra push to finally pick up this book. In the vein of what Khaled Hosseini did for Afghan women, Abi Dare does the same for Nigerian girls in this heartbreaking yet hopeful novel. Adunni the 14yr old MC has experienced more trauma and sorrow in her young life, yet her optimism and joyful spirit is infectious. I‘m so glad I added audio narration to my Kindle purchase, 👇🏽

Cinfhen because hearing the Nigerian dialect & authentic pronunciation of the Igbo & Yoruba added so much richness to the story. So grateful for my #LoudBuddyRead friends for sharing their thoughts. 13mo
RaeLovesToRead I'm only a fifth of the way in but I also was taken back to A Thousand Splendid Suns reading this far. Both books making me so so angry and conjuring the stifling and horrific realities of forced marriage. Which prompt are you using it for in #pop22? 13mo

TrishB Don‘t be jinxing it 😉😘 13mo
Cinfhen Hahaha 🤣 next month we have this one @TrishB 13mo
Librarybelle I really need to read this one! 13mo
Cinfhen It‘s really good @Librarybelle I think you‘d like it 13mo
Deblovestoread I loved Adunni! The author used a deft hand in showing the horrors of being a poor female in Nigeria while keeping her dream of having and using her voice alive. It would be hard to stay hopeful with such daily abuse. 13mo
Cinfhen Adunni was the right blend of heart, humor & spunk. A great character @Kdgordon88 Im eager to continue #ReadingAfrica to discover experiences for others in different African countries 13mo

Book #40 of 2021

A unique story that draws you in and keeps you guessing all the way to the end. I loved that the protagonist is a strong and smart (yet flawed) young woman with an equally amazing friend. The mystery that unfolds is completely unexpected and was so refreshing.

Book #40: 🎧 Audiobook. As a lifelong soccer player and USWNT fan, this felt like essential reading. Rapinoe has certainly cemented herself as one of the USWNT greats and a vocal activist for human rights. I‘m impressed with the way that she has used her platform to speak about LGBTQ rights and BLM. She is also one half of my favorite women‘s sports power couple. Thanks to YouTube I was able to relive some of the epic game highlights mentioned.
