I totally forgot that a friend of mine loaned me this book and already started another! Should I put my (900+) page book on hold for this one? Anyone else read it? The excerpts she shared with me do look pretty funny! 📚🤓

Madame Bovary | Gustave Flaubert
post image

Emma Bovary had a great desire for a more sophisticated and passionate life, often falling into boredom. She was unsatisfied with her dull marriage and life in the country. She was just waiting and hoping something exciting to happen to her and save her from her mundane life.

Cinfhen I should probably read this #MaybeOneDay #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime 2w
rohit-sawant Nice pick! Echoing @Cinfhen 2w

The Language of Flowers: A Novel | Vanessa Diffenbaugh

#maymoviemagic #gimmeshelter

There‘s a point in this novel early on when a character is homeless and living in a local park - I wanted to swoop in and #givehershelter I read this last year but it‘s really stayed with me - it‘s a much grittier read than the cover represents!

Cinfhen I‘m “glad” to hear this book has grit. It‘s on my TBR #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime 3w
rohit-sawant @Cinfhen Same! I'd stacked this one earlier. 3w
Kdgordon88 I love this book! 3w

The Driver's Seat | Muriel Spark
post image

#BehindtheWheel #MayMovieMagic
I had The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie in my hand at the bookstore last weekend, but I put it back, thinking that there was another Muriel Spark novel I wanted to read first. Had I checked my TBR, I would have realized it was this one. Intriguing plot involving a woman trying to escape both her life and general persona, leading to a drama while sitting between two men on an airplane (so, I guess title is a metaphor? 🤔)

Cinfhen I read this one last year. Very impressive and quite enjoyable. Thinking you‘d really like it, Vinnie 3w
BarbaraBB Great choice. I loved this book - and any by her! 3w

batsy I can't wait to read this! 3w
Billypar @Cinfhen I do really want to read it too- I should have still gotten it while I was at the shop- I was feeling frustratingly disciplined 😋 3w
Billypar @BarbaraBB I've only read her short stories, which she's not even know for as much, but they still made me want to read everything she's ever written. 3w
Billypar @batsy I would say 'me too', but apparently I've waited two years already 😳 #somanybookssolittletime 3w
Aimeesue Spark! ❤️❤️❤️ She's one of my favorites. I love Memento Mori - the audiobook is excellent. 3w

How I'm keeping track of books I want to investigate. I keep it with me constantly and I'm forever noting another book 😊

TNbookworm I do the same thing! 3w
Addison_Reads I do this too. I started it a few years ago. I'm always worried if I don't write the book title down I'll forget and miss out on something amazing.😁 3w
Crazeedi @TNbookworm I have to or I would never remember, then when I have time I look to see what I might want to get or borrow! 3w

Crazeedi @Addison_Reads that's exactly why too!! 3w
TNbookworm @Crazeedi me too😀 3w
jb72 I have a shelf on GR books to read in 2019. I‘ve been taking pictures of books for years. When I would go to the used bookstore I always had my list written down of books I wanted to find. 3w
Crazeedi @jb72 a shelf on goodreads marked tbr is a great idea! Yes I am carrying my little book with me everywhere! 3w
Freespirit I put them into Goodreads on my phone whenever I get a recommendation. 😊 3w
Crazeedi @Freespirit yes great idea!!! 3w

The Road | Cormac McCarthy
post image

Less #highwaytohell and more destroyed highway IN hell. Not my usual cuppa, but I was entranced by this sparse dystopian tale of a man and boy trying to get . . . somewhere.

merelybookish @Itchyfeetreader Mine too! I was surprised no one did it before me! 4w
merelybookish @Cinfhen Always! Although I would have thought you'd have read this one. Just because it was so popular for a stretch! 4w
merelybookish @rohit-sawant I think you'd like it! It's really well done! 4w
gradcat I feel so bad...and here it comes—my guilty admission—I don‘t like Cormac McCarthy‘s books. Don‘t kill me! I don‘t know why, but I just can‘t get into him. 😨 3w
merelybookish @gradcat No need to feel bad on my account! This is the only one of his I have read. I liked it but have no desire to read more. His aesthetic seems decidedly Western white male, which doesn't speak to me at all. 3w
gradcat Thanks for that...that kind of sums it up. It seems like there‘s always one very famous writer in a generation that I don‘t really like, but everyone else seems to love. My other guilty admission? I‘m not really into John Steinbeck, either...but I did not hate 3w
merelybookish @gradcat Yeah I have a whole group of male writers I have no intention of ever reading. Perhaps to my own loss but 🤷 Roth, Wolfe, Delillo, etc. Zero interest!! 3w
