Ugh, that‘s it I‘m calling it. I just don‘t care. I don‘t care if she sells a house. I don‘t care if she finds a boyfriend. I don‘t care who is kidnapping kids. I don‘t care that women in the town are prettier than her and in better shape. I just don‘t care! 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
Which is too bad, because I was listening for #SouthDakota for #ReadingUSA2019 - now to try and find another book for this state.
It was not easy to keep focussing on the beautiful sentences among the stream of conscience memoirs of Elizabeth Hardwick. I was not really in the mood for such a read unfortunately. #NYRBBookClub
The memories of her youth took place in #Kentucky so I can use the book for #ReadingUSA2019.
(Pic: This summer I stayed in a hotel in Brooklyn with the best pillows ever. I have searched everywhere and was able to buy them online!)
Man it was hard not to throw this book in a corner. I kept wondering what was the point. People in a room, killing eachother, lots of gory details and unfinished sentences. The chapters kept repeating themselves, so did the conversations. I ended up bored and frustrated. It‘s probably me but what a waste of time. (Sorry @rajithr and @vivastory ...)
This was so good! I read it in a sitting. Maddie leaves her husband and aspires to be a reporter, but the story she follows and the actions she takes have terrible consequences. #ReadingUSA2019 #Maryland
This is the 12th in the Murder by Month series. They‘re cozies set in small town #Minnesota, and are full of fun, quirky characters. The main character, Mira, comes to town to house and pet sit for a friend and manages to stumble across a dead body every month. #ReadingUSA2019 This puts me at 35/50 and it‘s definitely getting harder to find good books!
Later today RHCP‘s bassist Flea 🌶hosts his bookclub live on Instagram. This month‘s choice was News of the World. I liked the ‘reading the news‘ subject as well as the relation between the travelling news reader and the little girl who travels with him through 19th century #Texas to be returned to her family after being kipdnapped by Kiowa indians.
A young woman returns to #Mississippi to uncover what happened the night her father was killed. It‘s a good read - it really draws you into the heat and humidity and the racism that was the Mississippi delta. #ReadingUSA2019
How have I not read this before? Angelou infuses this book with humor, sorrow, and honesty. She‘s a bit halting as an audio reader, but I loved that she sang the hymns mentioned and that she asserts at the start: “I AM Maya Angelou.”
Thanks to @squirrelbrain for suggesting this one for #Arkansas. #ReadingUSA2019
