#WondrousWednesday @Eggs

I love these questions. Here goes:

🌹Authors: Lauren Groff, Curtis Sittenfeld, Angela Davis; Titles: The Color Purple, O Caledonia, Mrs. Caliban, Infinite Jest, Don Quixote
🌼 Stoner
🌺 The Great Gatsby, but not in a good way. I think it's the perfect book to read during middle age, not as a teen 🙃

kspenmoll Stoner- that‘s a “should” not a want to read for me! 19h
Eggs Well, this is the first I‘m hearing about Stoner… Agree with #3 18h
Billypar @kspenmoll @Eggs It's almost definitely the most popular book that I didn't like very much (and I still gave it 3/5 stars, I think). I don't have too many unpopular opinions! 18h

*I def have a list of authors I would like to try: Robert R. McCammon, Michael McDowell, George Eliot, Stendhal, Jennifer Egan, Zora Neale Hurston, Barbara Pym, Peter Straub.
*Bird Box (although I do want to say I LOVE Malerman's other books), The Silent Patient
*The Basketball Diaries by Jim Carroll had a massive impact on me. It was my gateway to exploring poetry.
#wondrouswednesday @eggs

Eggs Thanks for playing! I had read House at the Bottom of a Lake (meh) so I read Bird Box but was disappointed; I didn‘t watch the film. Did you? 20h
vivastory @Eggs Yeah, it was not memorable at all. Last month I listened to the following & loved it (if you want to give him another chance it is pretty short) 20h

🌼 A Lesson in Chemistry

🌺 A Catcher in the Rye for sure!

I‘ll tag: @RosePressedPages & @gabgab

Texreader I‘ve really liked the one Schwab I‘ve read. Not so much the one Hoover Ive read. 21h

Books - anything on my #shelfofshame

Susanita I bailed on the Book Thief after multiple attempts 🤷🏻‍♀️ 22h
RaeLovesToRead @Susanita There wasn't a single moment in that book that I wasn't aware I was reading a book. It all felt like writing. Felt really inauthentic from start to finish. 22h
Eggs Love S A Cosby and Schwab!! (edited) 20h

🌹I know this is hard to believe but Stephen King the only one that came close was Thinner I think it was maybe another author and him🤷🏼‍♀️

Thanks for the tag @SpellboundReader

1 Iris Murdoch, I honestly don‘t know where to start with her novels. I also have some Dickens I still need to get to.
2. The twilight series.
3. Emma by Jane Austen started a love affair with all things Jane. I have reread her books many times.

@Itchyfeetreader @Lizpixie @Karisimo @IndoorDame @julieclair care to play?

Texreader I ❤️ Dickens. Start with the Christmas Carol, which has such hilarious descriptions. 21h
Cuilin @Texreader I love Dickens too. I read Carol nearly every December. I‘ve read some others but not all. I should probably read a new one a year at least. Bleak House is probably my favorite. Do you have a favorite? 20h
Eggs Agree on #2. Thx for joining in 🩵 20h

Texreader @Cuilin I‘ve only read many of his short stories and The Christmas Carol is still the best. I‘ve read A Tale of Two Cities but don‘t remember it. And I‘ve listened to half of David Copperfield. I want to get back to his books but one really must plan ahead to read those chunksters 17h
Cuilin @Texreader I haven‘t read David Copperfield. Are you interested in a buddy read for fall/winter? 7h
Texreader @Cuilin Absolutely!! 7h
Cuilin @Texreader Yay!!! I can see if others would like to join us. I‘ll post a survey to gauge interest and we can come up with a plan. September-December? 5h
Texreader Sounds great! 2h

1- so many! I have over 400 on my list and two shelves full!
2- Can‘t think of particular titles but I‘m really picky about romance
3- Sneaking my parent‘s books taught me why reading could be fun. Stephen King and Flowers in the Attic were the most memorable.

1. Susan Mallery, Robyn Carr, John Marrs, Tessa Bailey, Chevy Stevens, James Patterson, Erik Larson, Sarah J. Maas, Leigh Bardugo, Brandon Sanderson, Robin Hobb and many more.
2. The Night Circus but I‘m willing to give the author another chance.
3. The Bible. I read it before bed every night. I gathered up a lot of Bible reading plans online and did a few of them and then I decided to just read the Bible like a regular book.

Texreader I ❤️ Larsen. His books are so good 21h
