#AuthorAMonth

I bought this beautiful adaptation at Target a while back and #AuthorAMonth is a perfect excuse to read it. Of course, now I‘m filled with rage. Anyhoo, I promptly passed it on to my 16-year-old graphic novel-loving daughter, who knows about this book but hasn‘t read it yet.

Reviewsbylola Oooooh I need to buy this! 2d
Soubhiville I‘ve been wondering how the graphic novel was! I‘m glad you liked it. 😊 2d

This was another stunning book by Atwood. Great historical fiction based on actual events about the trial and commitment to an asylum of a young woman accused of murder. The story is related from the perspective of her treating doctor and is beautifully crafted. An excellent read!

Soubhiville Margaret Atwood is our #AuthorAMonth for July! 😊. Glad to hear you enjoyed this. 3d
Come-read-with-me @Soubhiville Thought it was fantastic! She has such an amazing voice 😀 3d

So this is my #digitallibrary stack for @24in48

This is all from Hoopla. The app got an update and I‘m not sure I like it, since it put a “play “ button in the middle of the boom covers I have checked out.

I‘m going to get my #MargaretAtwood read for #authoramonth lead by @Soubhiville . I‘m going for GN because I‘m not sure Imhave time to finish anything else.

Bookjunkie57 I don‘t like the update either and I didn‘t notice the play button. I think I don‘t like it cause I‘m a grumpy old lady and I don‘t like change 👵🏾 😂 4d
LibrarianRyan @Bookjunkie57 I have seen a things I don‘t care for but we shall see. 4d
Soubhiville I had no idea how many graphic novels she was involved with! 4d
LibrarianRyan @Soubhiville I know. I was looking for audiobooks and found so many. This was just all the check outs I have left for the month. I‘m going to ILL all the others. 4d

My favorite Atwood so far! The manipulative Zenia wreaks havoc in the lives and relationships of three other women (they all knew each other initially in college). Zenia opens up their psychological wounds (some readers may have triggers) and adds more.

This story will stay with me for a long time.

Thanks @Soubhiville for the #authoramonth challenge which got this one out of my TBR. Now I may have a book hangover for a while!

Also #1001Books

Suet624 I've never asked about the 1001 books. Is that list from Peter Boxall's book? Can you provide me with a link? 23h
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 Yes, Peter Boxall. I have the 2015 edition, a newer one came out in 2018. The lists change slightly with each edition. I use the app (I think it's for Apple only though) to keep track. I found this list that combines all the books from all the editions : https://www.listchallenges.com/1001-books-you-must-read-2018

I know I'll never get to them all but it's fun trying 😂
9h
Suet624 Thank you! I‘ll check it out. 9h
ValerieAndBooks Also @Suet624 there seems to be several other formats of the #1001Books list online if you google -- there is one on goodreads (which I'm not a member of), for example. 9h

91° with heat index of 95°. Hot!! I‘m finishing this up under the umbrella (instead of laying in the sun) when I‘m not in the pool! So good!!

Soubhiville Nice! I also would like to come enjoy your pool! I‘m looking forward to hearing what you think of Robber Bride 😁 5d
ValerieAndBooks @MicheleinPhilly 😊 if you don‘t melt on your way over🥵! One other problem with this kind of heat is that it‘s really hard to keep the algae from taking over 🦠🦠 4d
ValerieAndBooks @Soubhiville it was so good; a glowing review!! 4d

This is an illustration of Grace Marks. In 1843, she, along with a fellow male servant, was charged with murdering her employer and his housekeeper. Grace was only 16 at the time. Margaret Atwood has done a fantastic job of bringing the time and place to life. Well researched. Exquisite writing. Was Grace guilty? You decide. @MinDea @Soubhiville #authoramonth #margaretatwood

Soubhiville I really want to read this too, but it‘s not happening this month. I haven‘t seen this drawing before, cool. 6d
Kaila-ann I‘ve read Burial Rites which I‘ve heard is (somewhat) similar. I‘ll have to bump this one up. 6d

The Circle Game | Margaret Atwood

I‘ve read a lot of Margaret Atwood‘s novels but not many of her poems, so I chose The Circle Game for #authoramonth
Favorites from this collection were The City Planners, Camera, and Spring in the Igloo.

Soubhiville I haven‘t even heard of this one! Great choice! 1w
mhillis @Soubhiville Thanks! My favorites are Hag-Seed and 4d

This book is a wild ride! A couple looses everything when the economy tanks badly, and they are living in their car. They hear about a community that is self sufficient, where residents take turns, a month at a time, living in a jail and serving the community, then enjoying a month in the community, like a suburban dream. Then things get crazy.

I loved all the bizarre twists, the mind control and manipulation. Definitely 👍👍.

I listened to this book on audio and it was extremely entertaining. This is Margret Atwood's retelling of Shakespeare's The Tempest (which I haven't read). It mostly takes place in a Shakespeare class taught inside a prison. The inmates are putting on a production of The Tempest while their teacher plots revenge.

Was up early this morning unable to go back to sleep, so I started The Robber Bride when I went downstairs. Thought the shadows from where I sat looked cool.
