Wrapping up the last of my #Pop23 reviews. This book brings back wonderful childhood memories. The memories are foggy but I loved the one-on-one attention my neighbor gave me after my triplet siblings were born. I believe she had a big part of my love for reading and I loved reading this one with her. It‘s always a comfort read for me. ~a book you wish you could read for the first time again.

squirrelbrain Lovely! ❤️ 5mo

I can‘t remember the last time I read a play but I love going to the theater to see plays and musicals. This book is a fantastic story of a black family in Chicago trying to make a good life for themselves and their children. The characters are complicated and made for a great story. #Pop23 ~a book you should have read in high school

With this book, #pop23 (excluding advanced prompts) is done. #withgirlinthetitle

Also #booked23 #partofatrilogy - there's probably more in the series but it's so late in the year I can't be bothered to find an actual trilogy now.

I‘ve read Olive Ketteridge and I‘ve been looking forward to meeting Lucy Barton! I enjoyed Lucy‘s life and the way Strout chose to tell her story. It‘s a sad story but I really enjoy her characters, relationship dynamics and storytelling. #Pop23 ~a book you bought from an independent bookstore #ReadHarder23 ~read one of your favorite author‘s favorite books (Taylor Jenkins Reid)

BarbaraBB I loved this one and all the ones following it! 5mo
Cortg @BarbaraBB I‘ll have to make my way through the series! Thanks! 5mo

When will I learn to read the classics rather than listen?! This was a lot more than I thought it was going to be, so maybe I‘ll pick a physical copy up at some point but I did enjoy it. It‘s more of a slow read though to take it all in. #Pop23 ~a book that takes place entirely in one day

RaeLovesToRead Maybe I don't have to read Ulysses after all... 🤔🤣 6mo
Cortg @RaeLovesToRead I‘m not gonna lie, that one kinda scares me! If ever I decide to tackle it, I will remind myself a print format is necessary 😫! 6mo

1970‘s Detroit. Reporter Elena Abbott digs into flyers being distributed during a big election with the possibility of the first black mayor to be elected. There‘s a dark force working against her. I enjoyed reading this graphic novel but I felt there‘s a whole previous story I missed and another story not written yet? Too many holes, I needed more! #ReadHarder ~any book from the Ignyte awards list #Pop23 a book set in the decade you were born

This was a gentle story that takes place in Vietnam. Maggie, born in Vietnam but raised in America, goes back to her birth country seeking information about her father. Along the way, friendships are born. And lots of Pho is eaten, leaving me wanting to stop for a bowl. #Pop23 ~a book by an author with the same initials as you

squirrelbrain Hooray - you must be nearly finished by now, as you‘ve read loads recently?! 7mo
Cortg @squirrelbrain I still have 4 on the top and 3 on the bottom! I started another audio yesterday but reading a work bookclub book that doesn‘t fit a category 😫 I‘m a bit behind but chugging along, we‘ll see if it gets completed. Time will tell. 7mo

Librarybelle I‘ve heard good things about the series, but I‘m on the fence as to reading them. 7mo

jenniferw88 @Librarybelle, you definitely need to read in chronological order of events, not publication date. I've read it out of order, and it can be confusing! 7mo
Susanita I‘ve been listening to a podcast about Napoleon, and they interviewed Bernard Cornwell! 7mo
Bluebird Someday I‘ll get to this series. It‘s been on my list for awhile, but trying not to start new ones until I finish some of the many I‘m already reading 7mo
