3.5-4⭐️ I enjoyed this one. I like Janetti‘s writing and humor. This is different than his IG account. It‘s more introspective and ruefully reminiscing as he reveals snapshots of his life. Janetti almost takes on a Walter Mitty approach to life in his imaginings of various scenarios in his head which show us, he‘s a dreamer at heart. He admits to being petty. He is. Yet, this book reveals he‘s human. It‘s a combo of humor and partial memoir.

Really topical book. It's accessibly and entertainingly written. The prose is very list-like though, and that's where it loses something in my eyes. If you can handle the science though, this would be an excellent choice. #symphonyinc #roberthazen #review

Rating: 1/5 :(
It is with a very heavy heart that I have DNFed The Toll. I loved that this book was coming out and was sooo excited. However, with the 100 pages I read, I felt like it was a lot of info dumping and boring. I was struggling with wanting to read it, so with such debate I dnfed it.

Rachel.Rencher 😮 oh I'm so shocked! I'm 200 pages in and loving it. 2w
The_Heeler_Booklife @Rachel.Rencher it can be me or maybe I didn‘t give it enough of a chance. Idk. Maybe down the road I‘ll try again. 2w
Lovesbooks87 So glad someone else is feeling the same way. I am almost 200 pages in and I am struggling! I am not liking it at all! 2w

Cailey_Mac Yikes!! I‘ve been wanting to read this next, as I loved the first two books 2w
The_Heeler_Booklife @Lovesbooks87 okay, I‘m glad I‘m not crazy about it. The first two had dull moments, but never like The Toll and I don‘t know it just feels different from the previous books with writing and the tone. 2w
The_Heeler_Booklife @Cailey_Mac you may still enjoy it. :) 2w
Lovesbooks87 @The_Heeler_Booklife I do feel like it is different than the other ones. I am still reading it and it is getting a little better but I don‘t see what can happen in the next 300 pages! 2w
Cailey_Mac @The_Heeler_Booklife definitely! I like to keep an open mind 😌 2w

Really, really enjoyed this. An excellent overview of Justice Ginsburg‘s life up until about 2015. I can‘t wait until the 800 page biography that should come out on her at some point after death (don‘t want that at this point)

This was such an enjoyable read, surprisingly cute and heartfelt but with typically eerie Junji Ito drawings. The bonus manga at the end broke my heart though 💔 #junjiito #justfinished #manga #cats #catsoflitsy #review

I feel like this book fell a bit short, around 70% I was starting to get bored but the ending was very emotional (I cried). Not as good as A Man Called Ove though!

Although the ginge looks bored, I can assure you, I'm really intrigued by this novel so far. The opening chapters have been cloaked in mystery, and I'm not sure who to trust (unreliable narrator? unreliable everybody??) Excited to find out whether Junior will leave or not... #cats #catsoflitsy #foe #novel #currentlyreading #review #fiction

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really liked the darkness of this book and this terrible sense that something bad is going to happen (which it obviously did). It‘s certainly a weird book but finally in a weird way I like. Now I just need someone to explain if it all means what I think it means??

And wow, that ending.

pigeonsandcrows I, too, was strangely drawn to this book whilst everyone else in my book club strongly disliked it. It looks quite striking in the flowers! 2mo
thewallflower0707 @pigeonsandcrows the cover is so gorgeous!! And I totally understand why some people dislike the book, it‘s certainly not for everyone. 2mo
thewallflower0707 @pigeonsandcrows i was wondering what you think about the ending- does the narrator have some sort of awakening, is she free from the drugs, what will happen now that her friend is dead? 2mo

pigeonsandcrows It's definitely not a book for everyone. I enjoy unlikable narrators, but still cringed at her sometimes. But I thought it was such an interesting book. 2mo
pigeonsandcrows I'm not sure what will happen to her. I felt like the author wasn't really interested in exploring her eventual fate as she was in discussing the process she went through to get there. 2mo
pigeonsandcrows My impression was that she gets off the drugs and "wakes up", maybe not in an entirely pleasant way. I thought the last chapter tied her "awakening " to the kind of new awareness people in the US had after 9/11. 2mo
pigeonsandcrows @thewallflower0707 I just realized I didn't tag and reply to you so I'm not sure you ever saw I responded. Sorry, I'm still quite new to this! 2mo

Finished with a whooping ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
I have loved the series for YEARS (Netflix has removed it- disgraceful- and I am seriously contemplating of just buying all the 7 seasons DVDs to catch up) and I really enjoyed this book. Worth is a wonderful narrator and each chapter is a glimpse into her world. Fascinating insight into the East End & the development of society and medicine.
