What Rose Forgot | Nevada Barr
post image
Pickpick

Rose awakens in a memory care unit with an early onset dementia diagnosis and feels as though she is incarcerated. Then it becomes clear that things aren‘t what they seem. This is a good mystery with an overall serious tone but some good funny moments. I love Barr‘s Anna Pigeon series and this is just as good.

SW-T Greta looks adorable 🥰 Loved Barr‘s Anna Pigeon series. This certainly sounds intriguing and I‘m on a mystery binge these days. 2w

With our focus on our new climate change hero, this short little tale shows Greta standing up to those ruining the environment and causing climate change. I can only hope the ending comes true for all of us. #Greta #climatechange

Rachel Williams befriended a woman named Anna who presented herself as a wealthy German heiress. Not long thereafter, Rachel found herself betrayed and defrauded by her “friend.” This is a bit of a lurid melodrama in ways, but it‘s an engaging, fascinating story and I couldn‘t look away. I was definitely in the mood for this.

Cinfhen I almost “bought” this on Audible the other day ~ helpful review 😄you gonna try 1mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I‘m definitely going to try it—it‘s sitting next to me right now. The problem is, I‘m feeling pulled toward Recursion. I‘m such a mood reader. We‘ll see what happens! 1mo
Cinfhen You definitely have to be in the mood for Friday Black! If Recursion is calling I‘d listen ❣️😜 1mo

Hyperion | Dan Simmons

So, I'm seriously rethinking the two Simmons books on my TBR, the last two books in the Hyperion series, after reading his tweet completely bashing a 16 yr old girl. The thought of a 72 year old "man" cyber bullying a child just boils my blood. #Magathugs #Magabullies #jerk

Greta is a role model.

We all “know” that Jack the Ripper‘s victims were prostitutes. Only, apparently, most of them weren‘t, according to this well researched book. Alongside descriptions of life in Victorian-era London, Rubenhold humanizes these 5 women and places the focus on their lives and who they each were, rather than on their deaths and killer. A fascinating book and a mirror into how we continue to objectify women.

Anno Dracula | Kim Newman

Mehso-so

Jack the Ripper is terrorizing London, with the twist that Dracula defeated and killed Van Helsing and is now the Prince Consort of England. And vampires live side by side with the “warm.” Great premise and I enjoyed most of it, but I found it overly bloated with characters and unnecessary storylines.

After an emotionally difficult read, I was looking for something lighter, and this fit perfectly! Billed as a Canadian Muslim Pride and Prejudice, it certainly reflects that novel without feeling derivative. I definitely enjoyed this.

This Cruel Design | Emily Suvada
post image
Pickpick

Emily Suvada is the real deal. This second book in the Mortal Coil series is superb, continuing to nuance the relationships between characters and add layers of plot without bogging down the story. If you like dystopian fiction, I highly recommend this. If you shy away from YA, do NOT shy away from this book! It is so well done (but start with book one). I cannot wait for the next book!

#dogsofLitsy #Greta

BarbaraBB You‘re sure? Because I do like dystopia but not YA! 5mo
Hooked_on_books @BarbaraBB I find some YA quite superficial. This is not. It is rich and nuanced and great storytelling. Plus Suvada really knows her science. I think it‘s only YA because the main character is a teen. Give the first book a try to see if it works for you. 5mo

BarbaraBB Thanks! I will! 😘 5mo
Hooked_on_books @BarbaraBB You‘re welcome! And the author lives in Oregon, so you could use it for that state if you still need it. 🥳 5mo

Touch | Courtney Maum

Sloane is a trend forecaster working with a tech company when the unfortunate realization comes to her that the next trend is a return to human touch and away from screens. There is some frank discussion of sex, but the touch of the title is primarily the simple act of humans touching. I found it quite thought provoking.

Soubhiville Aw! Bindi has clearly out grown Greta! Such lovely girls ❤️ 6mo
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville Bindi is huge! Just turned 1 and she can already rest her head on the table. Poor Greta looks like a little pipsqueak next to her. 😆 6mo

Well, I‘m up to page 51 and not really seeing the point of continuing. I‘m not invested in the characters and really not caring, plus I‘m excited about other books. So, I‘m cutting my losses and back to the library it goes!

#dogsofLitsy #Greta

Cinfhen That‘s the beauty of the library!!!! 6mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I know! I‘m so much more reluctant to bail on a book I spent money on. Though I will do it. Too many books in the world to waste time on one that isn‘t working. 6mo
Notafraidofwords I bailed on this one too. 6mo
JoyBlue I'm with you—I just bailed around p 79. Oh, well! 3w
