Marilyn | Norman Mailer

Good. Hard to get into at first as it's a biography done in the style of a novel i.e fiction so somethings are emphasised for dramatic purposes. This book is good for a foundation to build your reading of Marilyn's life on but if like me you have read and studied her extensively then you can spot how the author has used myths associated with her to drive the story along. Recommend.

Productive December so far, AND, I completed my Goodreads goal of 60 New books for the year. This didn‘t include re-reads.

Quichotte | Salman Rushdie

Omg, this book 😳😮😍💗💓💕💞. I'm not sure I can say enough to give this book its due. This is Rushdie at his best. Magical realism at its finest. Storytelling at its peak. This. THIS is the type of literary fiction that I adore. A modern retelling of Don Quixote told by a master.

Highly HIGHLY recommended. Possibly my favorite read of the year.

Thank you to #randomhouse for the #arc.

Bookish.SAM Wow. That‘s some high praise 😊 2mo
gossamerchild @Bookish.SAM 😂 Rushie IS one of my favorite contemporary writers, so I'm probably a little biased :-) 2mo

A powerful debut novel. Beautiful writing and brilliant storytelling. Captured love, racism and slavery with heart and brutal honesty. If you enjoy historical fiction and magical realism, you might enjoy this too. Full review on hookedonbookz.com

Definitely gonna be one of my top reads of the year! I loved everything about it! It had got very strong character portrayals (even the minor roles!), and plot and pacing were on point! Felt like it was for YA but not targeted/marketed as so. Still, it was a very good read! Strong pick!

This one was a wonderful surprise! Evvie Drake‘s emotionally abusive husband dies on the day she plans to leave him, and the rest of the book deals with how she comes to terms with guilt, abandonment issues (mom) and trying to be a “fixer”. Wonderful characters (especially loved her bff relationship), a slow, get-to-know, burn of a love interest and ultimately a path towards self-healing for Evvie. Fast read, loved it! 💙💚💙💚 5/5⭐️ Out 6/25 ⬇️

robinb Big thanks to #NetGalley, #RandomHouse and #BallantineBooks for providing me the ARC! The opinions are strictly my own. 8mo
