Life of Pi | Yann Martel

#abbainaugust #SOS

If anyone needed to send an #SOS it was Pi.

I loved this book. I think it helped that I had heard nothing about it before I read it, so I went in clear of any expectations and was completely mesmerised. I love books that twist things (relationships, events etc) and make you look at them askew - if it had been told literally, I don‘t think I would have enjoyed it half as much.

Cinfhen Same!!! I LOVED this book and didn‘t know what was coming😜much prefer book to film 1y
Centique @Cinfhen me too, book wins for sure! And I totally didn‘t predict it! 😘😘 1y
Cathythoughts Never read... but loved the movie ❤️ 1y

emilyhaldi I hasn't seen the film OR read the book. Is it worth all the hype?! 1y
JillR This has been lurking on my tbr for a loooooong time 😳 - thank you for reminding me about it! I might bump it up the list... 1y
Centique What do you think @Cinfhen ? Would @emilyhaldi like it? 1y
Aseleener Saw the movie a long time ago not realizing it was a book. Then really wished I had read the book first. 🙁 I've been debating reading the book. Not sure it will be as good since I know the twist now. 1y
Reviewsbylola Good one! 🐅 1y
Mdargusch I have never read this either. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1y
Cinfhen Hmmmmm, Jo🤔🤔I think @emilyhaldi would like this one!!! 1y
Centique @JillR yay! Stay clear of spoilers if you can! 1y
Centique @Aseleener I think you‘re right unfortunately 😬 Still good, but the not knowing made it great. 1y
Meredith3 I‘ve never read this myself but I‘ve heard great things! 👍🏻 1y

And the Sea Will Tell | Vincent Bugliosi
post image

I started this book probably 10 years ago and never finished it, but I have a feeling I should give it another go. Two couples stranded on an island and one couple ends up dead. Very mysterious! And Vince B is a bad ass MOFO.
So yeah #SOS #ABBAinAugust

Reviewsbylola Our boy Vinny was such a trail blazer! I‘m actually reading a book about the Manson fam right now. I didn‘t realize VB was only 35 when he was assigned to the Tate/LaBianca murders. 1y
Reviewsbylola And definitely give this one another shot. It‘s phenomenal imo. 1y

The Titanic is the most memorable of #SOS stories ⚓️ and this book @Mdargusch found at a recent antique sale recounts the "thrilling" stories of the survivors.

Inside I found this newspaper article that appears to be from 1985 when the ship was finally discovered on the ocean floor. How prudent that Bertha Wren (written in the inside page) chose to keep the news clipping inside this book ?


Meredith3 Yessss Jack Dawson 💘 1y
CoverToCoverGirl That‘s a fantastic find.. soo jealous ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1y

This was the book that started off my minor Titanic obsession (many years ago 😄).

Reviewsbylola I have an obsession with the Titanic too. This looks like an amazing edition. 1y
emilyhaldi So cool. I bet you have a whole shelf of Titanic books in that library!! 😍 1y
Mdargusch Such a good one! 1y
Cinfhen It‘s a topic worthy of obsessing over 💙💚 1y
Itchyfeetreader Yes mine too. I had a revised version full of great photos that I leant to someone and never got back. I can see it now - a pale blue hardback. What do you know? I am still quite angry about it! 1y
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I just ordered a copy from ABE. 😊 #blameitonlitsy 1y
LeahBergen @Quirkybookworm Thank you! 🙂 1y
LeahBergen @ferskner 👏🏻👏🏻 1y

LeahBergen @Mdargusch Yes! 👍🏻 1y
LeahBergen @Cinfhen I think so, too! 1y
LeahBergen @Itchyfeetreader Isn‘t that always the way? 😂 I‘m still miffed over a book I leant about 30 years ago and never got back. 1y
shawnmooney Do you know my family connection to the Titanic? 1y
LeahBergen @shawnmooney NO! Do tell! 1y

#AbbaInAugust Every since @emilyhaldi posted this book I‘ve been meaning to read it🤓As the Titanic struck an iceberg they sent out 8 emergency flairs hoping another ship would respond #SOS The SS California recognized the signs but did not comply. This is a historical imagining of what occurred.

emilyhaldi Gosh! And I still haven't read it!! 😆 but thanks for reminding me... It does sound good 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 1y
TrishB Sounds interesting 👍🏻 1y
Literary_Siren I enjoyed this book. Though it pissed me off. Such wonton disregard for life. 😡 1y

arubabookwoman The California ended its life by sinking off the coast of Aruba. That end of the island now has a lighthouse called the California lighthouse. This was something I always heard while growing up. Not sure if it‘s true. 1y
CouronneDhiver I loved this book! 😊😊😊 1y
Cinfhen So glad you guys recommend this book @Reviewsbylola @CouronneDhiver @Literary_Siren I‘m gonna look for it next time I place a #BookOutlet order 😍 and what an interesting fact @arubabookwoman I‘m sure there‘s some karma in there??!?!!! 1y

The women and girls of the Red Abbey believe they have found a safe place in a world which doesn‘t allow women to feel safe and to be educated. This feeling of safety is destroyed when men arrive at the Abbey to hunt down a girl they don‘t want to let go.

emilyhaldi This sounds like a fun one until I saw the blurb includes the descriptors YA, magic, & fantasy. 😂 unfortunately that‘s a threefold no from me 😉🙅🏻‍♀️ 1y
Reviewsbylola This sounds cool but I‘m with @emilyhaldi 😂😂 1y
BarbaraBB This sounds like your current read, doesn‘t it? 1y
Cinfhen Yeah, it‘s a pass for me too 😝 1y
Mdargusch Unfortunately not my style either but great for the prompt! 👍🏼 1y
Kalalalatja @WanderingBookaneer thank you! ☺️ it was a recommendation from @Moray_Reads and I just couldn‘t pass it by @JoRead 👏 @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola @Cinfhen @Mdargusch yeah, I‘m pretty sure you all would bail on this 😄😄 @BarbaraBB this is more YA and fantasy, and not dystopian, but they do have some similarities 1y

I love reading about the Victorians, but if I lived back then I‘d be sending out an #SOS.

This book had me laughing out loud. The douching, The contraceptives, and just the general misinformation was almost unbelievable.


Melissa_J LOL Me too!! 1y
MicheleinPhilly “semen deprivation” 🤣🤣🤣 1y
AmyG Face douche. I need to find a way to use that in a sentence today. 😳 1y
