Guess who's the odd man out in my RL bookclub? Everybody seems to be enjoying this Wharton, sadly I have zero interest in this overly cliched story. However with this group, #BailingIsNotAnOption

LeahBergen 😂😂 The hashtag! 5y
bookishkai I don‘t get along well with the “classics” either, 5y
Foragingfantasy Can you find it on audio, might make it easier. 5y

Cinfhen I'm going to look on my OverDrive system @Foragingfantasy ....I'm glad I'm not the only one @bookishkris 😉thanks @LeahBergen but this group is harsh😂 5y
Marchpane If bailing is truly not an option I advocate "skim finishing" 5y
Sydsavvy @Marchpane I like that term "skim finishing" - definitely been employed by me! (edited) 5y
Cinfhen Love that hashtag @Marchpane @Sydsavvy I've been known to use that method as well!! 5y
Marchpane @Sydsavvy @Cinfhen No shame in it! 😁 5y
readinginthedark Sorry you don't like it! I haven't read this one, but I really liked The Age of Innocence by her. 5y
TrishB Not read any Wharton and my VC in work is one of the world experts on her and always asks if I've read any yet....just don't fancy it!! 5y
Leniverse I haven't read this one, but I think I might be the only classics lover on the planet who rolled my eyes at The Age of Innocence. I did better with Ethan Frome, but that was a novella so I didn't have time to get thoroughly fed up. 😂 5y
Cinfhen Thanks so much @Leniverse my bookclub is loving her, and while I'm in awe of her feistiness this book just reads sooooooo dated! I can't get into it @TrishB @readinginthedark #ItsDefinitelyMe 5y
Blaire Good luck, if you want to try another Wharton - I'd go with house of mirth. That's my favorite one. For book clubs I have often done a very quick skim to make it through when I'm not enjoying it. (Can't actually remember if I've read custom of the country). (edited) 5y
DivineDiana @Cinfhen Not fun ploughing through a book you have no interest in reading! 🙁There must be Cliff Notes or Spark notes available?!? 🤔 5y
Cinfhen That's my next step @DivineDiana it's better than a #shawnmooney or a #skimfinishing 😂😂 5y
Cinfhen Thanks @Blaire I've heard good things about House of Mirth but it's #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime 5y
DivineDiana @Cinfhen Agree! 😀😉 5y
emilyhaldi Oh man, sorry this book club is not as kind and accomodating as your litsy readalong group! 😂💁🏻 5y
Cinfhen 😂😂😂 TRUTH @emilyhaldi 😘😘 5y
Reviewsbylola Can you read it on serial reader? Sometimes small doses help. 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I'd bail anyway! Lol 😂 5y
Cinfhen I'm scared of this group @ForeverNerdy 🙈think I may be #SparkNoting 5y
Elisa Oh yikes. You are a stronger woman than I am! This is exactly why I not do book clubs 😬 Is the book getting any better? How far are you? 5y
Cinfhen @Elisa I'm about half way through....it's just not grabbing me. I despise the MC & I just don't give a crap about her. I realize this book was written in 1913, which is amazing but you know what??? It feels REALLY DATED!!! 😩we meet next week, so I think I'll just read the online bookclub discussion summary 😉 5y
Elisa @Cinfhen haha attagirl, don‘t torture yourself! 😉 I totally get it though — if I don‘t like the main character, very often I just want to close the book quite decisively and never open it again, which basically me saying “that‘s enough out of YOU!” 😅 5y
ValerieAndBooks Ha. Sorry you‘re not enjoying it! I do like Wharton a lot 😆. 5y
