I‘m Michigan for the first time, relaxing on the outside patio of my hotel. FINALLY getting around to book #5 in the Codex Alera series. Maybe I can finish the whole series this year?? #fantasy #summerreads

1. I read Gone With the Wind faster than I read this one.
2. I‘m really glad I read Say Nothing before I read this one. I had a deeper understanding of the nuances of the location and the people she spoke of.
3. I was claustrophobic and anxious while reading much of the book.
4. I loved the main character.
5. I think I‘ll try listening to the audio just for the fun of it.
6. I like the book more after finishing it than while I was reading it.

Theaelizabet Great thoughts! 1w

TheEllieMo I really did not like this one when I was actually reading it, but it has stayed with me more than most novels 1w
Suet624 @TheEllieMo Yes, I imagine the same thing will happen with me. It‘s immersive and atmospheric. 1w
Suet624 @Izai.Amorim Haha. Thanks! It seemed like the only way to say all of that. 1w
Suet624 @Theaelizabet Thank you. 😀 1w
Suet624 @Niso That‘s what I keep hearing. I look forward to it. 1w
BkClubCare #1-6: me, too! Tho, #2: I read Say Nothing after reading Milkman, and #5: DO! The audiobook is terrific and went fast. (Listened after I finished Say Nothing.) 1w
Suet624 @BkClubCare what did you think of Say Nothing? 1w
Hooked_on_books Nice review. I couldn‘t get past page 20 of this one, I‘m afraid. 1w
Suet624 @Hooked_on_books I completely understand why. 1w
Readerann This was a strange one. I THINK I liked it. 🤔 1w
Suet624 @Readerann I kept thinking the same thing while I was reading it. I definitely wouldn‘t hand it out to all my friends but I enjoyed it once I was finished with it. 😁 1w
Rachel_nyc Having heard so many good things about the audiobook, I went on my library waitlist after reading the print version. I think it should be available in the next couple of weeks and I can‘t wait to re-enter that world in a different way. 1w
batsy No 6... I like that. Some books certainly are likeable more when reflected upon than during the actual reading. It's an interesting point! 1w
Suet624 @batsy 😁 that‘s why I rarely bail on books. Often I have a different reaction once I complete it. 1w
batsy Re: bailing, me too :) 1w
BkClubCare @Suet624 - I was fascinated by Say Nothing but Milkman enhances the history with emotion and depth. 1w
Suet624 @BkClubCare yes, true. 1w
Reggie I liked the fact that nobody is what they seem at first in this book. The mother and the actual milkman aka the guy who could never love another. The maybe boyfriend. I got a kick out of the wee sisters. I‘m glad you liked this, Sue. 1w
Suet624 @Reggie True, true. The maybe boyfriend was a surprise. And the idea that you couldn‘t marry the one you were in actually in love with because you might lose them ... 💕 (edited) 1w
BkClubCare She just wanted to walk and read her books!!! Leave her alone! 😊 (I keep seeing the expression “beyond the pale” and I‘m pretty sure I had never heard it before or at least had not “thought” on it. Was wondering if a Brit saying but saw it in an article in Elle mag yesterday! 1w
BkClubCare And wee sisters were absolute best. 1w
Suet624 @BkClubCare 😂😂 1w
Izai.Amorim Question: Are you on GoodReads? 2d
Suet624 @Izai.Amorim Yes, but I generally just keep track of what I read on it. Wait. I just looked for you! You‘re an author??? I just followed you. 2d
Izai.Amorim @Suet624 Great. I‘ll send you a friendship request. I don‘t use GoodReads much but they have private messages, which I miss here. There‘s a question I wish to ask you. Yes, I‘m a writer, Two published novels, the third one being edited right now. I‘m slowly learning the art... 2d
Suet624 @Izai.Amorim hopefully I‘ll figure out how to accept a friend request! 2d
Izai.Amorim You will! 1d

#LMPBC #GroupX #TeamCanada: We have three finalists. Please vote for your fav. @StayCurious @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Andrea4 @FantasyChick Also: do we want to pick a posting order? I was thinking if we add Andrea as #5 to the list Sue sent then Renee posts to me posts to Danielle posts to Vanessa posts to Andrea posts to Renee. Does that work?

StayCurious I‘m throwing my hat in for PP&OF. The order you suggested works for me 1w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I'm cool with the mailing order. 1w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego The one about the quintuplets sounds interesting, but I'd be fine with any of them. 1w

BookishTrish Looks like the Quints have it! Thanks, guys. 1w
Andrea4 @FantasyChick not sure since I moved. If you email me, I'll update you and maybe you could send me everyone else's info since I couldn't sign up so don't have that. 7d

Book #5 in Modern Mrs Darcy‘s Must Read mystery list! Another Kate Atkinson story that is set during WWII. An 18 year old girl name Juliet is searching for a job and is surprised to find herself plunged into a world of espionage. Her past seems to chase her and threaten the life she tries to make years after the war. It takes a few chapters to get oriented but after that you won‘t want to put it down! Atkinson is a fantastic writer!

Cinfhen I still haven‘t read this book yet...I‘ve seen mostly terrible reviews 😫😫 4w
Reviewsbylola Not going to lie, the urge to bail is strong. I usually like her books, but I‘m 200 pages in and so far it‘s a flop. @Cinfhen 4w
Cinfhen Maybe you should enact the return policy!!! BOTM will take back any book and issue a credit 4w
Reviewsbylola It‘s my mom‘s. She bailed. 😆 @Cinfhen 4w
Cinfhen Ha!!! That‘s actually REALLY funny 😁 4w
