This book is laugh-out-funny, heartbreaking, poignant, incisive, and silly in equal measures.

One of the best graphics memoirs I have ever read, and I highly recommend it.

AutumnRLS I loved this. Borrowed from a friend, but had to pick up a copy to own after I read it. ❤ 5d

Well, you all weren‘t kidding when you said this was seriously steamy!

I don‘t usually read romance unless it‘s queer, but I was interested in the autistic main character. I thought Hoang handled it really well. I enjoyed the progression of the relationship, but I certainly blushed a good deal while reading, even though I was alone in my car. Lol.

If you‘re into unconventional romance, I‘d highly recommend this.

RaimeyGallant Soooo steamy! :) 5d
BookFreakOut The audio for The Bride Test was very good if you plan to continue in the world! Different main characters, but another great unconventional romance. 5d

Another lovely Slow Burn Romance by Mariana Zapata. This features a MMA gym manager and a rugby player. This has quite possibly the sweetest male protagonist of any romance I‘ve ever read. Gentle Giant is definitely apropos. I highly recommend! #romantsy #recommendsday

Exploded View | Carrie Tiffany

Our new episode of Books On The Go is up! @mr_annie & I discuss ‘Exploded View‘ by Carrie Tiffany. 🎧📖
.
Set in 1970s Perth, it tells the story of a girl who takes a road trip with her family and reads a Holden car manual at night - but all is not well. 💔 It‘s a short, spare novel, utterly compelling from the first page.
.
We recommend this - a masterful work of Australian fiction. 🇦🇺

What‘s your top read this week? #recommendsday

Freespirit This book sounds like a must read. I have just begun the tagged book 4w
Abailliekaras @Freespirit ooh that sounds interesting - what‘s it like? 4w
Freespirit David Leser the author is an Oz journalist. He wrote an article after the #metoo movement started and was encouraged by thousands of emails to write the book. So far it‘s really good...looks at attitudes of men, religions etc to women...the reasons why men feel they might “own” a women. Lots of historical references and discussion of past rapes/ murders of women. I think an important book especially as it‘s written by a man😬 4w

The Great Believers | Rebecca Makkai

A slightly premature #recommendsday suggestion, this was the most recent read for my book club and one of my favorites of the year so far. It‘s kind of odd: I found the book to have a lot of flaws (mostly stemming from the fact that I think Makkai diluted the Eighties story by including the 2015 thread and that the two threads resulted in weaker character development), but I was totally engaged while I was reading it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-1/2

This #AudibleOriginal is powerful, I cried. A moving, poignant, at times ugly and terrifying narrative that reveals the true cost of war. The untold suffering that the Greatest Generation faced during World War II and for decades after returning home and how it effected and shaped future generations.

Began this last night before bed, and I have to say, I was sold by the end of the 1st page. I'm really enjoying this look at a dystopian US that is possible in many ways. I have so many questions! Hopefully they are addressed by the end!

This little book packs a serious punch! A collection of short stories like none I‘ve read before, every one gave me things to think about.

The title story is about the monsters we become on Black Friday, barely able to communicate and so focused on deals that we don‘t mind sacrificing weaker folks to get what we want.

It‘s less than 200 pages. Check this one out! #recommendsday
