#ToB

The woman in the yellow cardigan is watching the woman in the purple skirt…why?

This started off quirky-weird (like Convenience Store Woman) and I wanted to know more. The last third was just weird-weird and I‘m not sure what the aim of the book was. I think it‘s about obsession but it left me rather unsatisfied and it wouldn‘t make my shortlist.

Still a pick - just. I‘d give it a go though @Jee_HookedOnBookz - you might love it!

squirrelbrain I also tried this one today but it‘s about a degenerative nerve disease which hits a bit too close to home for me. I knew before I started and thought I‘d be Ok but bailed after 30 minutes of audio. I think others will like it though. 11h
Ruthiella Weird like humor can be tricky, right? But still a pick so I‘ll check it out. Maybe it‘ll turn out to be my kind of weird!🤪 11h
squirrelbrain It‘s really short too @Ruthiella so worth a go, I think! 11h

I‘ve been enjoying all the #NewYearWhoDis lists so I‘m definitely getting loads of suggestions for January but the next few weeks are gonna be tough.
Here‘s what I got…. both are audios. Famous People was suggested by @Megabooks and Wild Thing was recommended by #Scribd 😉
My 3 in progress should keep me busy. I‘m LOVING Will, Crossroads is good (a little puffed-up) and #DrZ is dragging but I‘m not ready to call it quits.

rockpools I‘m so impressed you‘re still going with DrZ! 1w
wanderinglynn I too have gotten lots of great suggestions from all the #newyearwhodis lists too. 1w

Cinfhen Don‘t be too impressed @rockpools @TrishB it‘s not gonna last much longer 😘 1w
Cinfhen I know, I‘m SO IMPRESSED with all the lists @wanderinglynn 1w
BarbaraBB You started Crossroads. Looking forward to your thoughts. I am saving it for some winter nights in December! 1w
monalyisha I'm intrigued by the fact that the Will Smith book seems to be getting such good ratings! It wasn't on my radar but now my interest is piqued! My husband, his Dad, & his younger brother (almost 30) know ALL of the lyrics to ALL of the songs on Big Willie Style. It's truly something to behold. 😅 (edited) 1w
Megabooks I‘m so interested to see what you think of Famous People after reading so many real musician memoirs! Crossroads very nearly made my #nywd22 list. I thought it was great! 1w
Cinfhen That‘s hilarious @monalyisha if you do try this book go audio!! Will sings, raps and does numerous impressions plus he riffs on #BigWillie 😉 1w
Cinfhen Ill keep you posted @Megabooks @BarbaraBB I‘m about 200 pages in on Crossroads and I‘m really intrigued with the whole concept of church youth movement. (edited) 1w
monalyisha @Cinfhen “Will“ do! I'd love to save it for a car trip with my husband! We're going to NH in a few weeks to visit my Dad, which is about 3 hours from where we live. Perhaps that will be the time! 1w
Megabooks Youth groups were HUGE when I was a kid in the 80s!! Every church had them. 1w

Cinfhen The list is great @Librarybelle definitely take a screenshot 😌 1w

Megabooks @Cinfhen I did like it very much, and I‘m up for a Passing #buddyread! 1w

Cinfhen Thanks @britt_brooke I‘m not such a fan of SSJ but I own it, it‘s on the list, I know you liked it and it‘ll work for #Booked2022 1w

Loved this! Anderson Cooper looks back a family he once didn‘t claim in this fascinating historical account. He and Howe take snapshots in the lives of some family members such as one who sank in the Lusitania and another who threw a $64 million party. He reserves three chapters for his mother, including her fraught childhood and adult life in high society NYC. He includes a bit how her lavish spending made him frugal. Go #audiobook!

Megabooks I think you‘d enjoy this @Cinfhen 👍🏻 2w
Crinoline_Laphroaig I've been wanting to read this. 2w

Cinfhen I saw it on #Scribd!!! But I can‘t borrow until December 4, so im gonna wait a few more days!!! It looks great 😊 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen totally worth a scribd borrow! Cooper‘s narration is awesome! 2w
marleed I loved this and it makes me smile to think of his son having his dad‘s perspective of this heritage preserved for him in print and audio. Fascinating history - all those massively expensive homes built that were too pricey to maintain let alone preserve. 2w
marleed Oh and this book put The Age of Innocence atop my tbr! 2w

#CurrentListen #Scribd #BONKERS But in a really engaging way…Milk Fed meets My Year of Rest & Relaxation with a dash of Eleanor Oliphant. Thanks for the recommendation @Megabooks

Megabooks I think I‘m going to give it a relisten after I finish 2w
Cinfhen Vanderbilt is on my #wishlist @Megabooks I‘ll be watching for your review and now this book is turning darker & deeper…it‘s a little sad and giving me some Tampa vibes, I can see why you listed it as a missed rooster 🐔 2w

Hey! The 2022 Long List for the 2022 Tournament of Books has been announced! I‘m so excited! 😝 I‘ve read 10 of the 68 books. Will any of you be following along in March 2022? #ToB #ToB2022

rsteve388 Thank you I have been googling this for like the last month. So thank you! 2w
Ruthiella @rsteve388 Excellent! My work is done! 😅 2w
Megabooks I just skimmed them, but I‘m going to go back for a closer look later! Thanks for the heads up!! 2w

squirrelbrain I‘ve read 15 on the list - better than I thought. I only took part in CampTOB last year (for the first time) so I‘m intrigued to see how this works. I‘m trying to have a no-pressure year with challenges in 2022 but I‘m sure I‘ll get involved somehow. 2w
Cathythoughts Thankyou for posting ! Can‘t wait to have a look … and add to my TBR 😂❤️❤️❤️💫 2w
Ruthiella @Megabooks It‘s a lot of books to take in at once. Especially since they include plenty of outliers! 2w
Ruthiella @squirrelbrain 15 books is great! Also, you can totally observe the tournament from sidelines and still enjoy it, I think. Take 2022 to observe and see how you like it. 2w
Ruthiella @Cathythoughts It‘s always fun to read about the books that are completely new to me on the long list! 2w
4thhouseontheleft @squirrelbrain I‘ve only observed #tob from the sidelines but considering getting involved in 2022! (Although not sure how it all works) 2w
KarenUK 13 for me…. Thank for sharing! Got a lot of reading to do! 😉 2w
vivastory Thanks for the tag! I'll have a look later 2w
squirrelbrain We can be newbies together! @4thhouseontheleft 2w
MicheleinPhilly I only did a quick skim but I think I‘ve only read 1. 😬 I do own another 10 or so. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Looking forward to exploring all of the totally new to me titles. 2w
kwmg40 I've only read 1 from the list so far. Looking forward to another ToB! 2w
4thhouseontheleft I've read 4 on the list, lots more reading to do! 2w
Ruthiella @KarenUK I usually try to get to two or three longlisters before the shortlist is announced. 2w
Ruthiella @4thhouseontheleft I try to be fairly relaxed about the longlist...68 books is a lot! 2w
Ruthiella @MicheleinPhilly It‘ll be a good excuse to get to some of your physical TBR sooner rather than later! 2w
Ruthiella @kwmg40 It‘s my favorite reading event of the year! 😅 2w
Ruthiella @vivastory You‘re welcome 😊 2w
Chelsea.Poole Ooohh thanks for the tag!! I have read 13 but have several others on hold at the library/Libby. Several I‘ve been thinking of adding tbr, and this list might be the nudge I needed to pull the trigger! 🐓 📚 (edited) 2w
4thhouseontheleft @Ruthiella it is! I I‘ll be waiting until the shortlist comes out, but I actually have 2 on the list checked out from the library right now! (edited) 2w
AnneCecilie Maybe. I‘ve read 9 and own 1. There‘s also a couple of others I want to read. Then I hope my library will have some once the list is narrowed down. 2w
BarbaraBB Thanks for the tag! I‘ve been sooo looking forward to this! I‘ve read only 10! And I am having a few on my shelves. But I‘m off now to devise which ones I‘m going to need a copy of! 2w
BarbaraBB @Chelsea.Poole @KarenUK @squirrelbrain Impressive you‘ve read so many already. I‘ve read 10 but want to read a few more before the shortlist is announced. I am excited to see a new Everett! (edited) 2w
BarbaraBB @Megabooks You‘ve read sooo many of these!!!! 2w
Ruthiella @Chelsea.Poole Totally! I try to read only those I‘m interested in anyway from the longlist and use it as a way of prioritizing. 2w
Ruthiella @4thhouseontheleft I have one checked out now too which made me happy 2w
Ruthiella @BarbaraBB You are welcome! The first thing I do when I get the longlist is see which are available at the library. I wonder what the chances are for Percival Everett making the shortlist a second year in a row.🤔 2w
Ruthiella @AnneCecilie I only get serious about the shortlist because there is no way I could read all 68 by March 2022. 2w
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I have! 😁 but I read a lot of books this year period. 😉 I am very excited to see which make the shortlist. I plan to read the whole shortlist, but I‘ll pick and choose on the long one. 2w
Megabooks I‘ve read 18 and bailed on 3 and have 3 on my shelves unread and am currently on the waitlist for 1 at the library. Not bad! @BarbaraBB (edited) 2w
Suet624 Thank you so much for tagging me. I hadn‘t realized the list was out. I‘ve read eight and I have three more sitting on my table that I got from the library. They all look so intriguing. I love this tournament. 2w
Ruthiella @Suet624 It was only released today. I love this tournament too. Unlike many other book prizes, it introduces me to many books I normally would not be aware of. (edited) 2w
Suet624 You‘re exactly right. 2w
BkClubCare I‘ve only read the #TOBSummerCamp ones. Which is typical. I will spend some time checking the library availability. And guessing!! Which will be on that darn shortlist. 2w
Ruthiella @BkClubCare The Booker winner is pretty much a sure bet to make the shortlist. 2w
Cinfhen Thanks so much for sharing!!! I‘ve actually read 18 & own another 2 which I‘m planning on reading for other challenges in 2022. I never attempt the long list…it‘s LONG 😉😆but I‘m curious about the shortlist!!! I‘ve enjoyed participating in @BarbaraBB version of #ToB challenge 🥰Now off to check out the other 40 books I‘m not familiar with 😁 2w
Ruthiella @Cinfhen 18 read! WOW! Right up there with @Megabooks. 😲 Impressive. 2w
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen So impressive, 18 books! I need recommendations as I‘m definitely not going to read all 68 of them 😂 (edited) 2w
Cinfhen I actually have @Megabooks to thank for some of my books!! It was her reviews which inspired me to pick up the book 😍😘so I‘ll continue following Meg for inspiration 🥰 2w
Cinfhen I‘ll have to go back and let you know which of those 18 I enjoyed @BarbaraBB xx 2w
Simona I have read 11 books so far and I‘m planning to read some more from the list, but not the whole longlist. Longlist like that scares me 😳 Thank you for tagging me😘 2w
Ruthiella @Simona You are welcome! I only try to read the complete shortlist. Like you, 68 books is waaay too long for me! 2w
batsy Fun! Thank you for sharing. I am going to *try so hard* to read along this time. Think I've only read about 7 😅 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB @Ruthiella this has been a big reading year for me period! I really want to get to 500 books!! I am 35 away as of today. There are three I‘ll tag here that I‘m surprised didn‘t make it. 2w
Megabooks And this one…should‘ve gotten it for your birthday, Barbara…perhaps Christmas 😉 @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Ruthiella 2w
Megabooks And this one, which I‘m rereading now. I know you weren‘t a fan, Barbara, but it seems very ToB. @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Ruthiella 2w
Cinfhen Thanks for sharing those 3 @Megabooks I‘m really interested in this one 👉🏽 I don‘t recall your initial review 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen just retagged you in my review! 👍🏻😁 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen check out @EvieBee ‘s review of that one too!! 2w
Cinfhen I‘m definitely going to use a credit if I can‘t find it on #Scribd…thanks @Megabooks 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen you‘re welcome!! 😘😘 2w
Ruthiella @batsy Trying to read the shortlist is a challenge, no doubt. Especially some since there are ALWAYS a few that aren‘t to my taste and are a bit of a trial to finish. 😅 2w
Ruthiella @Megabooks @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB I agree, the three books Meg noted are real omissions. I also expected and miss Mrs. March and (edited) 2w
Lindy Thanks for posting! I will be following, though I don‘t plan to read everything. I‘ve already read 16 on the list, bailed on 3, and have 3 others lined up for reading in the next month. Best part of this list: the new-to-me titles like the one set in Ancient Sumeria— 2w
Ruthiella @Lindy I also love the discovery aspect of the Tournament! 2w
BarbaraBB @Megabooks @Cinfhen I haven‘t read Nobody Somebody Anybody but had it stacked after your review. Both others I read and are real #ToB books indeed. I haven‘t read your two suggestions either @Ruthiella and will check them out. Personally I really think at least one Charlotte McConaghy should have made it to the longlist. And I expected this one, that‘s on my shelves but I haven‘t read yet: 2w
Flaneurette Woohoo! Thanks for the tag, I do plan on following along, love the TOB. I‘ve only read 8 and am currently reading 2 more. I have more on hand that I hope to get to soon! 2w
Ruthiella @Flaneurette You are welcome! 8 with 4 more coming is an excellent start! I love following the tournament and reading the judgments and commentary. 2w
Well-ReadNeck Welp, there goes my TBR!!! Several that were not on my radar. I‘ve read 33 of 68, so not too shabby. 2w
Ruthiella @Well-ReadNeck 33! Amazing 😲. You might have already read the shortlist! 😜 2w
Cinfhen I liked this one too @Ruthiella @BarbaraBB @Megabooks but I can‘t figure out what makes the list 🤷🏼‍♀️👇🏽 2w
Cinfhen I thought this one would make it 2w
Cinfhen OMG @Well-ReadNeck 🙌🏻 which are your favs???? 2w
Cinfhen @BarbaraBB I think you might like Infinite Country or 2w
BarbaraBB Thanks @Cinfhen I will take note 📝 2w
BarbaraBB @Well-ReadNeck I‘m in awe too and curious what are your favorites?? 2w
Well-ReadNeck @Cinfhen my faves: Nightbitch; We Run the Tides; Whereabouts; A Spindle Splintered; The Other Black Girl; Fight Night and Detransition, Baby (edited) 2w
Cinfhen Thanks for sharing @Well-ReadNeck haven‘t heard about this one - curious 2w
Cinfhen And I‘m definitely going to pick up 2w
Ruthiella @Well-ReadNeck @cinfhen I just put a hold on it at my library. It‘s under 150 pages! 2w
sarahbarnes Yes! A lot of books on here I‘m interested in checking out! 2w
Ruthiella @sarahbarnes It‘s always an interesting mix of known and unknown titles for me! 2w
Readerann @Ruthiella I will definitely be following the action! I have only read 1 and own 1 other (but my bday and Christmas are coming up 😀). There are several I want to read and I‘ve added more from the comments here. I‘m trying to remember - does the short list come out in January? Thx for the tag. 🤗 2w
Ruthiella @Readerann The shortlist usually comes out in December, which is good for me because I have to take time off work then anyway. 😀 2w
teresareads I mostly use the long list as motivation to put a few books on hold so I'm at the front of the line for ones I'm interested in if they make the shortlist. I already read 4, had 3 on hold already, and added five more. I don't intend to read the shortlist this year, but I've said that the last couple of years and end up changing my mind every time. 😏 2w
Ruthiella @teresareads I try not to put too much pressure on myself to be a shortlist completist. But I do find I appreciate the judgement and commentary more when I‘ve read the book. But there are books that do defeat me. I‘m glad Peaces didn‘t make it. I‘d have real trouble finishing it. 2w
azulaco I will follow along, although I have found some of the past #ToB picks unremarkable. I‘ve only read one of the books on the long list. Several are on my reminder list. (edited) 2w
Ruthiella @azulaco There are always at least a couple that make the shortlist that I don‘t get on with! (edited) 2w

This book is fucking hilarious!!! I‘m dying!! Wanda Sykes is reading this one essay that has me doubled over. Part love letter to NYC, part love letter to the 80‘s and a whole lot of Beastie Boys humor. LOVING this audio!!!

I‘m VERY IFFY on this #WeeklyForecast 😜

Truly nothing on my shelves, across all mediums (digital, audio, print) is calling to me and #DrZ is like an albatross around my neck…WTF were we thinking?!?

Going into this week with some hesitation 😅

I did enjoy House of Gucci, but it was unnecessarily long! Super detailed throughly researched but began to drag. Still excited to see the film 🤩

LOVED this month on #botm!! I‘m very hopeful 😉 about these choices. Somehow I worked my way up to four accounts, so after these arrive I‘m canceling these two. Skipped on the other two. Excited to see what everyone else did!

Cinfhen Oh wow!!! 4 accounts 😂😂😂do you need 4 different emails??? I tried to rejoin but it keeps taking me to my current account. 1mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen yes! Four different emails! 😂😂 1mo
Reviewsbylola I could have probably been persuaded by either of your main picks but I don‘t like the covers enough. 😂 The NF I may listen to on audio depending on reviews. And your fourth choice is def one of the adds on I was interested in! 1mo

Cinfhen I need to cutback on BOTM simply because of delivery to Israel. I‘m waiting for my “ free” book of the year book and then I‘m pulling the plug. Almost ALL of these books end up on #Scribd or #Audible so I‘m happy putting my $ towards that. But I do love the monthly excitement of a little blue box 😍 1mo

ValerieAndBooks What @MicheleinPhilly said!! I quit at that same time too, and now somehow you have 4 accounts 😂 !! There are times I miss that blue box coming, and other times when I don‘t. 1mo
britt_brooke FOUR? 😂😅💸 Too funny. 1mo
Megabooks @MicheleinPhilly @ValerieAndBooks @britt_brooke I rejoined on my main account a few months later for what was supposed to be one month that has turned into three. The other ones I joined using the blue box #botmhacks to get cheap add ons that I wanted. Last month I got four add ons over two accounts. Just reminded me that it sucks when they‘re the best books. I enjoyed two, bailed on one, and am enjoying the third, so at least I‘m reading them! 1mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen yeah, I can imagine that would be hard. Probably better to buy local or BD. Plus, like me, you seem to be reading more audiobooks than print. Plus you‘ve got netgalley! #NeverTooManyBooks 😉 1mo
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola yeah the add ons seem pretty solid. I almost decided I didn‘t need the essays in print, but I wanted to read more print NF. Or at least have one around. 😁 1mo
