Reviewing this Netgalley ARC. Last book, I think, for #SummerEndReadathon. It is the story of Fiona who‘s searching for her younger sister, Rona, for 7 years. Fiona learns that Rona was a sex worker leading Fiona to see sex workers as human beings with their own voices and choices. She meets Anya/Sonja & others while still searching for Rona & raising her daughter as a single mother. Anya‘s blog entries are powerful. Not my usual but excellent

Working on finishing this book today. Sluggish read imho. #SummerEndReadathon

IndyHannaJones Uhhhh I loved the Tiger's Wife. 4w
MellieAntoinette Agreed! It‘s intriguing, but I feel like the camel dragging along with the gang! 😜 4w
Samplergal @MellieAntoinette I enjoy the Nora parts but I‘m like you. I feel like I‘m Burke. 😂 4w

Just ten minutes of reading so far today for the #24b4Monday and #SummerEndReadathon readathons, but I am already so happy to be reunited with the Swallows!! Busy morning working on our remodeling project this morning, but anticipating some solid reading time this afternoon.

PS Can you believe I snagged this gorgeous copy on eBay for less than $10?!

Clwojick ♥️♥️♥️ 1mo
Andrew65 Sounds great, love those books. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Andrew65 - I just found there was a whole series after I reread the first book as an adult a month or so ago. I'm intrigued to find out where the stories wander!! :-) 1mo

Clwojick I love this layout! Is it an app, or did you calculate the time? ♥️🙌🏻 1mo

jb72 That‘s a great start! 🎉 1mo
PageTurner789 @Clwojick It's an app called Bookly I haven't used it much so I'm not really the one to ask how it works but you can enter the book info into the app and it will calculate your reading speed, and other stats. Its kinda cool but confusing at the same time there is a free option (which I use) or a $19 fee for more that the app has to offer! 1mo
PageTurner789 Thank you every one I'm hoping to read a lot more this weekend! 1mo

Overall excellent pacing here, but the ending felt a bit odd.

I'm a little over 2 hours into this weekend's readathons. Tomorrow morning will be busy, but I am hoping to get some time made up in the afternoon whilst the husband is off on his own adventure.

Here are my first three reads for #24b4Monday and #SummerEndReadathon - I found three somewhat related to the ocean! The top one is Wodehouse's The Girl on the Boat, plus the next Swallows & Amazons book, and Dani Pettrey's latest (I've heard mixed reviews so we will see). First, I need to finish the tagged book! Not sure how much time I will have to read, so I am mostly just tracking time and seeing what happens! Hopefully 10hrs for the weekend.

TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick @Andrew65 @jb72 @TheReadingMermaid - thanks for hosting the readathons!!! 1mo
Andrew65 Good luck with the Readathon, some great choices of books linked to the sea! 🙌👏😊👍 1mo
Andrew65 @TheAromaofBooks I‘m sure I speak for the others when I say we love hosting the readathons. (edited) 1mo
