It‘s Big Little Lies meets the #metoo movement, but without Moriarty‘s skill for character development. I loved the way the book addressed responsibility of women to stand up for each other. The stand out parts were the chorus sections. They were a collective voice talking about women‘s experience in the work place. Sexual harassment was 1 subject addressed, but there were plenty of others. The plot was a bit heavy handed overall, but still good.

Book 117 of 2019

This critique book is HILARIOUS!! I honestly did not know what this book was about, but knew a bit about the author. The chapters and how they are broken up are perfect and each topic is great. Be prepared for politics though and some #metoo stuff and feminism. Some chapters do seem to just go on and on, but overall a great book. Thank you for the opportunity to review read this hilarious book!

This book is not for everyone, it‘s explicit at times, and TW for #metoo stories,but I found it utterly compelling.
It‘s not at all a cross section of women, the 3 women all being white and 20‘s-40‘s, but I found their complete honesty and raw emotions so brave.They expose every flaw, desire, fear and moment of self-loathing. At different times I could identify with each of them, even if overall sadly it was Maggie I could identify with the most.

A dark YA of rape and revenge that puts a spin on the #metoo movement. After a popular teen is violated by high school jocks at a party, she assumes a new identity in order to infiltrate their school and carry out her murderous vengeance. Reminiscent of Shakespeare's MacBeth, Cruel Intentions and Kill Bill all rolled into one.

This rounds out my readings of all the C. Summers books. Just as the others did, this one had me stopping, crying, and feeling a lot of hurt. #MeToo shouldn't have to be a movement, but this book just exemplifies why it is and how even the ones who are supposed to protect us don't believe the stories of horrific acts of sexual violence on female bodies. How it breaks people and makes them do anything to feel normal again in their skin.

LogiKitty [Quote: “I think wildly that I could reach through and grab her wrist, like I could stop her and take her away, because no one else is doing it. Because no one else did it.

I put my hand to the screen, covering hers. We‘re wearing the same color nail polish.“]

I almost always give Reese Witherspoon‘s picks a chance and this was another good one. It wasn‘t a fun read in any way but a timely one. I thought the author did a good job capturing #MeToo and sexual harassment in all its forms. I listened to the audiobook and that made it challenging to keep up with the passage of time and the number of characters.

What made this book shine is the fleshed out female friendships and how Baker really has her finger on the pulse of the #metoo era. It wouldn't necessarily have been a pick for me without these timely, relatable insights sprinkled throughout. The plot itself was promising, but the buildup to the reveal and the overall rollout of the ending could have been smoother.

HUGE thanks again to @AmyG for mailing me her copy 🤗

AmyG Glad you enjoyed. I agee about the ending. But I still enjoyed it. 3w

I thought my August TBR was going to be a little more under control than July was. But no. Here we have two chunksters for book clubs, three leftover from #MakeMeReadIt, two books for my poetry project, and four examples of my inability to control myself at the library.

Any thoughts on the tagged book? It‘s my library‘s book club pick, and I‘m conflicted after having seen the #MeToo accusations about Alexie.

Caroline2 Ohhhhh we need to talk about Kevin is sooooo good!!! 👍🏻 3w
BarbaraJean @Caroline2 Yes, it is!!!! It‘s a re-read for me—reading it with my book club and I‘m hoping it goes over well, given how harrowing the story is! 🤞🏼 3w

RamsFan1963 I received a copy of We Need To Talk About Kevin as a birthday gag gift. They thought it was funny since that's my first name. 3w

“Reader, I murdered him.”

Jane Eyre meets #MeToo meets Dexter. A rollicking good time with a heroine who is not going to put up with men‘s bad behavior.

Loved it!

This was fun. I love an elite secret society gone wrong story. What I liked about this is that it comes mainly from an instructor POV although there are student POVs too. The plot revolves around taking down the rotten secret society and the chaos that ensues. A change of pace, slightly satirical, definitely a knowing wink, an interesting book for the #metoo era. I had some issues with believability, too many POVs, but overall pick. #netgalley
