Counterfeit | Kirstin Chen
post image

I had to bring it back because this is truly an epic #NewReleaseTuesday!

Counterfeit (tagged ⬆️) is a @Reviewsbylola rec and today‘s Reese pick. It is the perfect light, fast-paced fiction I needed today! Nuclear Family was from the #CampLitsy longlist. I‘ll tag it and the others ⬇️

Perrotta is right on trend the summer by releasing a sequel to a 20 year old book, but Flick is one of my favorite characters so I‘m psyched!

Info about memoirs ⬇️

Megabooks This sounds like an interesting approach to intergenerational trauma as it relates to war and immigration. 6mo
Megabooks Speaking of Reese, she was the perfect Tracy in Election the movie! 6mo
Megabooks The book Tracy Flick is a sequel to 6mo

Megabooks The next two are my library memoirs. This one is by a British TV writer whose husband went into a coma and when he awoke insisted she was an imposter. Sounds interesting and scary! 6mo
Megabooks This weaves science and a memoir. I‘m getting Hope Jarhen/Lab Girl vibes 6mo
Cinfhen #BookEnvy but I still love u 😘 6mo
squirrelbrain I‘ve read a lot in the British press about the Morgan memoir -sounds fascinating! 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen 😘😘😘 I went a little crazy! Yesterday was a hard long Covid day. 6mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain I am looking forward to it. My library gets much more interesting NF than fiction! 6mo

Of Dogs and Walls | Yuko Tsushima

This one will be read later on in the year, as it‘s book number 43 in the set of 50 Penguin Moderns.

Apparently it might not be about dogs *or* walls - ‘Two luminous tender stories showing how childhood memories, dreams and fleeting encounters shape our lives‘


Cathythoughts Great interpretation 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y
Mdargusch I have #bookenvy. I just want to read every one of those beautiful books. 4y
BarbaraBB You‘re reading them all? 4y

emilyhaldi Oh, this set us so beautiful 😍love that you are reading all!!! Do you have a favorite so far?? 4y
Reviewsbylola What a cool set! 4y
squirrelbrain @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola - they are lovely aren‘t they? @BarbaraBB - I‘m reading one a week during the year - I‘m up to number 14 so far. @emilyhaldi - I‘ve surprised myself that my favourite so far is a sci-fi one, not my usual thing! There has been one I bailed on; as they are ‘Penguin Moderns‘ some are a bit odd.... 4y
BarbaraBB What a super cool idea, reading one a week! What was that sci-fi one called? 4y
squirrelbrain @BarbaraBB - it was a The Three Electroknights by Stanislaw Lem. I felt that they were more like fables rather than sci-fi. (edited) 4y
emilyhaldi Oohhh!! Interesting! Sci-fi isn‘t my usual either. 1 per week is a great idea!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y

Thanks to @Librarybelle for alerting me to the recent Book Outlet scratch and dent sale. I couldn‘t help myself. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I got all of these for $32 so how could I not? Some of them were in poorer condition, but overall it was worth it! And now I‘m def on a book buying ban.

bookish.escape Book Outlet is my weakness, lol!! 4y
emilyhaldi I managed to resist this sale and am very proud of myself 🤗 4y

It‘s nice to see this cover featured and discussed here. Brings back good memories of our #LittleRaskols readalong 😊!

At first I thought I had a defective copy because the headlines seem slightly sliced off at the top, but evidently this was intentional 🤷🏻‍♀️.

Reviewsbylola This book looks so cool! 5y
batsy This will give me serious #bookenvy 😍 5y
LeahBergen This book looks so good. 5y

The moment when your newest hold arrives (Little Fires Everywhere), but you‘re only 7 chapters deep into your current book (Sleeping Beauties). Do I cheat on my current read? Or stay true? Are you a monogamous reader? #bookenvy #whichbooktoread

Kaye Monogamous 💯 %. I cannot read two books at once. Too nit picky. I need to complete on before beginning another. 5y
TwinnyMama122 I feel the same way @kaye - I‘m going to stick with Sleeping beauties and hoping I can finish with time to enjoy Little Fires Everywhere 5y
