#Booked2019
review
IamIamIam
The Bobby Gold Stories | Anthony Bourdain
post image
Pickpick

Bobby Gold takes the fall for a friend and ends up in jail for 8 years. This follows his life as a bouncer and strong arm for the same friend involved in dodgy business. Hardboiled gangsters, lots of restaurant scenes and some explicit sex scenes.

I loved this and still can't get over what we lost when Anthony Bourdain took his life. An unnecessary and sad ending to a life well lived. You are missed! #Booked2019 #foodoncover #Spring #1toGo

BarbaraTheBibliophage Great review, and why haven‘t I heard of this book? Look how young he is ... 😰😰👨🏻‍🍳👨🏻‍🍳 1h
IamIamIam @BarbaraTheBibliophage I wanted a pic that showed Bourdain in his natural habitat, even if he was a chameleon! There's even a bit of travel stuck in at the end!! Don't miss this one. You'll bust it out in an afternoon! 48m

So real life has gotten in the way of my reading. Ergh 😤 and I have 6 books that are within 100 pages of finishing... 😫. But I finally finished one! This was a great sequel to ThebHunger Games, and I can‘t wait to get to the final book in the trilogy to find out what Gale meant by that final statement. Great narration by Carolyn McCormick

Being me, I “need” to read in order a series. It's impossible to skip ahead hence I'm reading #16 before reading #17 for #booked2019. Good thing Worlds is on this morning. 🇺🇸 vs 🇩🇪

Depression, grief, survivor guilt. All of this are the fondation of this slice of Smith‘s memoirs. I liked the slow spiral of her life. The flashes of brillance drowned into her everyday grey, monotonous life. Grief is a hard lover. Smith is also a fan of procedural tv shows and also a fangirl. Her Doctor is Ten. Her writing flows effortlessly. Depressing not joyful, still really good. #booked2019 #spring #featuringamusician

Cinfhen Fantastic review! I read and really enjoyed 2d
BarbaraTheBibliophage I really must read this one and Just Kids. Thanks for the nudge! 41m

river woman | Katherena Vermette

In this poetry collection Vermette focuses on rivers and on being Metis. Rivers are constant yet changing, mixing and growing. The Metis belong and miss what is gone and going. These poems are spare, most lines are fewer than 4 words. But the words are powerful. I heard about this book on the @ReadingEnvy podcast. #nativecanadian #metis

Cinfhen A lot of people are reading this book by the same author and loving it 2d
Cinfhen They both work for #Booked2019 #IndigenousAuthor 2d
AudreyMorris @Cinfhen I do want to read her novel, I really am into novels more than poetry, but I was feeling motivated. And poetry is usually quicker and I already have a pile on my nightstand!! Glad to here people are liking it!! 2d

OriginalCyn620 @Cinfhen It was just okay for me. To me, it read like a stream of consciousness, which isn‘t my favorite. If it weren‘t for that, I probably would‘ve liked it more. 2d
Cinfhen I‘m not finding a book yet that is holding my attention for that prompt 😬 2d
OriginalCyn620 @Cinfhen Have you tried this one? Ive heard good things. (edited) 2d
Cinfhen Yes!! I read it in 2018 and it was really good. Thanks for the suggestion 💜 2d
