Thank you so much, @Cathythoughts , for these fabulous-sounding Irish novels!

I so enjoyed reading your note about your surprise family connection to the cover illustrator of The Fly on the Wheel. And isn‘t it gorgeous?? I‘ve been so looking forward to this one and The Colony sounds wonderful, too.

You‘re such a dear friend. 😘😘😘

A frozen woman | Annie Ernaux

This book is extraordinary. Ernaux talks through a life (I assume it‘s hers) from childhood into adulthood, slowly revealing the ludicrous and painful reality of being a woman, the expectations piled on women, and the lack of interest society seems to have for what we actually want. It doesn‘t seem like much at first, but as the book goes on, the weight becomes more and more apparent. This is searing.

TrishB Great review 👍🏻 1mo

Not a quick and easy read, but thought provoking and contemplative. Liked the concept of a black immortal trying to trace her own history.

I'll give this a soft pick. I rather enjoyed it, despite non-fiction not being my forte, probably because it's so novelized that it reads like four short stories. I'm left with doubts of how much guessing and how much facts are in this book, but happy to have learned of other female authors and welcoming any debunking of the myth that women can't be friends because we are always bitching (maybe Woolf's doesn't count as example) #Pemberlittens

I enjoyed reading this along with #pemberlittens but I dragged a bit in the last chapter. Finally I am glad to finish. Good thing about this book is it added many other books to my never ending TBR. I am particularly intrigued by the second part ( about Brontë sisters) and the last one was least favourite. I couldn‘t understand what was the agenda of the authors. 3⭐️ I could finish dis cos of #buddyread thank u ? @BarkingMadRun @sprainedbrain

BarkingMadRead I added a few to me tbr as well! (edited) 2mo
kspenmoll Agree with your assessment - also added books for me to look into! 2mo
Blackink_WhitePaper @BarkingMadRun @kspenmoll yeah hopefully we can read few books together in coming days 💐 2mo

This is my second book by this author, after reading The Place. I wasn't totally convinced by it so I decided to give it a second chance. I guess there must be something that gets lost in the translation from French because I seem to be inmune to Ernaux"s writing. Her writing seems devoid of feeling, just a succession of events or thoughts. This book in particular seemed to be a list of complaints about motherhood.

I didn‘t enjoy this as much as I‘ve hoped. It has an intriguing premise & what I‘ve read so far was interesting, as I‘ve not read any of the featured authors‘ individual biographies, but I didn‘t like the many aspects of conjecture. Especially in the first section, Austen, which has left a sour taste in my mouth. Also I didn‘t like the tone of the writing. And after the section of Bronte & Mary Taylor, I wasn‘t motivated to pick it up again.

erzascarletbookgasm Thanks for leading the read @BarkingMadRun #PemberLittens 2mo
BarkingMadRead I don‘t blame you, I feel like it didn‘t deliver what it promised 2mo
batsy It's a bit of a letdown, isn't it? I found the first chapter on Austen pretty grating, as well. 2mo
