French Exit: A Novel | Patrick DeWitt
post image

I feel as though the blurbs on the back of French Exit sum it up much more succinctly than I ever could.

Fantastic dialogue, witty, interesting characters. There is a part of me that‘s still unsure of what exactly I just read. A morose yet comical book.

The Silkworm | Robert Galbraith
post image

Galbraith's second Cormoran Strike novel takes place during the winter. Cormoran's investigation involves a lot of conversations in diners & pubs. A lot of beer, cigarettes & snow. Bombyx Mori, the book in the book is one of the strangest I've ever read. I found the Cinemax adaptation of Cuckoo's Calling to be well done, but I was really disappointed with their handling of Silkworm & never bothered finishing.

TrishB Good pick 👍🏻 7mo

I've read this a while ago and enjoyed so when i saw it in a charity shop recently felt I'd get it to reread.
I love the cover which definitely has a hint of winter in the image.

Less Than Zero | Bret Easton Ellis
post image

Not original but I love the Bangles' version of the song. Not so good book or movie. Very, very 80s in the worst way.

@Cinfhen @TrishB

Cinfhen Hahaha!!! No such thing as bad 80‘s 😜 7mo
writerlibrarian @Cinfhen humm i would agree about 85 % of it was fab... Easton Ellis, for me, is in the 15%. Still awesome music. I have playlists, plural, of 80s music. From Sting, to Bryan Adams, Corey Hart, Heart, etc. ❤️ 80s music. 7mo
CoffeeNBooks I love 80s on 8 on SiriusXM!! We had the best music back then, lol! 🤣 7mo

Cinfhen I agree 💯80s music is THE BEST in all of its various forms @writerlibrarian @CoffeeNBooks 7mo
TrishB @Cinfhen agreed 😁 but I don‘t like Easton Ellis either! 7mo
writerlibrarian @CoffeeNBooks i listen to 4 channels in my 🚘 80s on 8, Beatles channel, NHL channel (big surprise, right 🤣) and RC Premiere which is CBC One in French. @Cinfhen (edited) 7mo
CoffeeNBooks @writerlibrarian I listen to the Beatles channel, too! And First Wave (again, I love my 80s), 70s on 7, and 60s on 6. ESPN whenever my husband's in the car. 7mo
Cinfhen Hahaha you and my hubby share an affinity for NHL channel ⛸🏒 @writerlibrarian (edited) 7mo
Cinfhen And Beatles channel @CoffeeNBooks 7mo
