I really enjoyed this one! The writing was fantastic and I really liked the main character. This book was fast-paced and very hard to put down (definitely stayed up too late reading it 🤓). Although it had the potential to be very dark and scary, it was not overly so. I learned after reading the book that it will soon be a movie starring Amy Adams! 🤩#thewomaninthewindow #ajfinn #danielmallory #unputdownable #booktomovie

JohannaRose I loved this book and I had no idea it was going to be made into a movie! That‘s awesome! 6d
rethier1 @JohannaRose I didn‘t either! It apparently comes out in October! 😻 6d
JohannaRose @rethier1 Oh wow that soon! I‘ll be looking for it! Thanks 😊 6d
cathipink Did you read the articles about Daniel Mallory that came out a few months ago? 6d
rethier1 @cathipink Yes indeed. He seems to be quite unfamiliar with telling the truth. Sounds like an...interesting...guy. 😬 6d

The last things my grandmother and I talked about before she passed were movies and Clark Gable. She helped to instill a love of films in me that I will forever be grateful for. For #Booked2019, #booktomovie, I'll be reading this, which was one of Nan's favorites. Her last conversation about this was, "Jessica knows the movie... she's blind, and I love that actor. You know the one." ? Here's another one for you, Nana!

#Booked2019 ¤ 104F=Summer? ¤ #BooktoMovie

Stretching a wee bit, @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage & @4thhouseontheleft, and using the challenge as an excuse to finally start watching Outlander adaptation. ?

I've read the first three books and have heard glowing reviews of the adaptation being well cast. So much so that every time Jonathan Randall aka "Black Jack" comes on screen, I can hardly watch knowing what's ahead. ? #BookwormProblem ?

Cinfhen Ooohhhh, maybe I should watch adaptation since I‘m never going to read the series #PageCountPhobia 😉 2w
Karisa @Cinfhen I hear ya! Definitely why I stopped after the third book. It was such a time commitment to start each one. 😂 Adaptation seems to be capturing the first book perfectly--not for the faint of heart. The author was heavily involved. 2w
Cinfhen Now I‘m really pumped xx thanks 2w

Susannah I‘ve never seen #pagecountphobia, but I know I have it, @Cinfhen, and will be using it again. 😉 (edited) 2w
Cinfhen Ha!! @Susannah it‘s REAL!!! And I‘m a long term sufferer 😂 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m okay with the stretch and I will add #pagecountexhaustion to @Cinfhen ‘s hashtag. Last month I read a couple of super long and intense books. Now I can‘t stomach anything over 300 pages. #needabreak 🤪 (edited) 2w
Cinfhen There‘s something really appealing about a 265 page book @BarbaraTheBibliophage 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen I agree 💯— done in a day or two max! 2w

What a fascinating and unputdownable memoir! The book is definitely better than the movie!

Wow! I read this in one day because I could not put it down! I haven't seen the movie yet but I hear it follows the book so I'm going to check it out! Even though I still have one prompt left for Spring, this works for Summer's #booktomovie for #booked2019.

2 🌟 I read the original The Magicians before it was in paperback. I think about this graphic novel the same way i felt about that book: boring!!!!! Maybe I would like the TV show more? Alice is trying to get into the magical university, which she does. Then she gets to skip part of her first year. It just goes nowhere and does nothing for this reader.

Trashcanman Say what? Just watch Rambo and Rambo 2. Pfftttt the hell with that noise.ha! 4w
BillBlume The TV series, what I saw of the first season was much better than the book. 4w
LibrarianRyan @Trashcanman I wont lie, with a new Rambo coming out, I have been tempted to rewatch the entire series. I just haven't had a day where I was sick enough yet. 😁 4w

Trashcanman @LibrarianRyan if you want to get sick I can arrange that. 4w
LibrarianRyan @BillBlume I plan to try the TV show. I caught the first 20 minutes of episode one, and it starts off compleatly different from the book, and I just not really tried to watch it. And Lev is SOOOOOOOO nice. We chose his book for our very first One Summer One Book, and he made a little intro video for our website and everything. It sucks that I didn't like it. It was right up my alley. 4w
TsundokuAleax If you like the books, the TV show has such a similar vibe. They are two different beasts but the writers know these characters and respect who they are on the page. I have not watched recently due to time and not sure about how they ended the last season. That being said, what I watched was a perfect interpretation of these characters and the story to the point that I did not mind all the changes. 4w
wanderinglynn @LibrarianRyan Oh, I‘m so glad I‘m not the only one. I so badly want to like this book because it‘s my genre & I love the premise. But I would read a few sentences or a paragraph & then put it down. I‘m now trying the audiobook. The narrator is good, but I think there‘s just too much detail & not enough movement, so I find myself phasing out. 🙁 4w
LibrarianRyan @wanderinglynn EXACTLY! If it wasn't something I had to read for work, I would never have finished it. UGHHHHHHHHHH 4w

How do you review this?

I want to go straight back to the beginning and start reading it again! Even though Scarlett is a piece of work, I loved her determination, her relationships, the conversations, & experiencing the oh-so-rapidly-changing world through her eyes. And it‘s made me want to read contemporary writing from the Reconstruction era, through other eyes (suggestions pls?)

RachelO I‘d expected racism, of course - but hadn‘t realised the scale of it, or the impact of hearing it from the narrator, rather than the characters.

This was a holiday read for me, which is obviously the way to go with chunksters. It‘s made me want to dive into some mord of the books I‘ve been putting off because of their size.
Caroline2 I love this book too. 💗 1mo
RachelO @Caroline2 😊 Liked it a lot more than I expected to! 1mo

Mdargusch One of my all time favorite books! Rereading this recently the racism really made me cringe. 1mo
Cathythoughts Well done !!!! I saw the movie many many years ago... it‘s long 👍🏻 1mo
Cinfhen I liked this one (sort of) but getting through it, was a bit of a struggle and some parts really did make me squirm. The racism was very uncomfortable. I‘m not sure I could sit through the film or ever reread this. 1mo
BookwormM I hated Scarlet right up to the point where I loved her 🤣🤣 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great review. I liked this book much more than expected. Then tried to watch the movie and couldn‘t finish it. 1mo
CoverToCoverGirl Not a fan of the movie but I‘ve read the book three times. I liked Scarlet because she‘s a take no prisoners kinda gal in a time when that wasn‘t even a thing but her fixation on Ashley got on my nerves every time! 🤣😂 1mo
RachelO @Mdargusch 😊 I‘m going to have to tackle Lonesome Dove at some point now! - 1mo
RachelO @BookwormM 😂😂😂 This. Exactly! 1mo
RachelO @Cinfhen It was very uncomfortable in places - I‘m glad I‘ve finally read it. From the comments here, maybe we don‘t need to sit through the film though. 1mo
Cinfhen Yeah, I think you‘re right 😘 1mo
RachelO @Cathythoughts @BarbaraTheBibliophage @covertocover Thanks! I‘m even worse with long films than long books, so I think you‘ve all just given me permission to skip that! And CJ, yes! Every time Ashley appears, he just goes down in my estimation - what WAS she thinking?! 1mo
RachelO @Velvetfur Just remembered! This was a pre-2019 birthday present, so number 3 in my #readinggifts2019 (even if I ended up reading most of it on holiday on Kindle 🤔) 1mo
Mdargusch Yes! Glad you will try LD now! But I loved, loved, loved this movie! Try it! The costumes, the actors, and seeing it playing out is worth it. You just have to keep in mind how old it is. 1mo
Velvetfur @RachelO That's so cool! I haven't read it or seen the film but I know it's a classic; it's good to hear you loved it so much! 1mo
