“That's one of the first things that comes out of young people's mouths when they're in love. FOREVER. And that's cool, it's all good - until you get old enough to realize what forever is.”

#YouNeverCanTell if you believe what they say...when the narrator can‘t be trusted (whether due to self-delusion or downright insane), and makes you question what is being told.


Cinfhen Love your interpretation🙌🏻u feeling any better??? I think I might have strep throat...I‘m feeling pretty crappy😔 5mo

#maymoviemagic #younevercantell

#younevercantell what‘s at the heart of a novel when your protagonist narrator is naive of the truth himself! John Dowell‘s recollections of his role in the unravelling of a relationship may also be unreliable.

I loved this when I read it many years ago. But you know me, mad for a slow atmospheric classic with some awe inspiring sentences. 😋 I also loved The Fifth Queen. Any other fans out there?

LeahBergen I have this waiting on my shelf. 👍🏻 5mo
Centique @LeahBergen I almost tagged you to say that probably nobody else would like this except me and @leahbergen 😂 😂 So i hope you do like it! 5mo
LeahBergen 😂😂 I always thought it sounded like a book I‘d love! 5mo

emtobiasz I read this one for a British Lit class in college! I remember liking it, but not a whole lot else about it. I‘ll have to revisit sometime! 5mo
batsy Long been on my TBR. I think it's because Francine Prose recommended it in one of her nonfiction books for its beautiful sentences 🙂 5mo
batsy This Prose book, which I think might be up your alley as well :) 5mo
Centique @batsy oh wow! This looks so good. I honestly think this could be the book I never knew I was looking for. In my enthusiasm for reading I usually miss noticing the craft of writing - and I need to pay more attention so I can learn for my own writing. Thank you! 5mo
Centique @emtobiasz yay! I‘m glad I‘m not the only fan 😊👌 5mo
Cinfhen Nice choice, Jo 5mo
Liz_M I remember enjoying this when I read it a couple of years ago. Apparently it was during one of my many reviewing slumps, so I didn't ate or review it. 😕 5mo
Centique @Cinfhen at your service m‘lady 😝 5mo
Centique @Liz_M I know the feeling! I only started rating books 3 years ago so there‘s So Many I‘ve read and can‘t remember 😬 5mo
batsy My pleasure, P! I know that feeling all too well and I appreciated how Prose made me stop and see the structure and construction of these beautiful words/works. 5mo
rohit-sawant Interesting! And I'm all for slow atmospheric reads interspersed with brilliant sentences 🙌🏼 5mo

#YouNeverCanTell how many books I‘ll end up buying when attending library events.

Last Friday I went to a talk about the German TV series Babylon Berlin. Off course I bought the first to books in the series and the last book in Cusk‘s trilogy.

Today, I went To hear about a new photography book. I didn‘t buy that, but the top to books.


Severnmeadows Love the Summer Book! 5mo
Cinfhen Book hauls make me happy!!! Nice 😁 5mo

When my reading buddies are fed and tired, #YouNeverCanTell how annoyingly loud they can be.

#MayMovieMagic @Cinfhen @rohit-sawant

The #catsoflitsy are too cute right now. I'd like to get up and get some tea, but I don't want to disturb Ghost on my legs.

Reading an #ARC provided by the author.

wanderinglynn Aw, how sweet! Love cuddle buddies. ❤️🐱 5mo
rretzler 😻 5mo
squirrelbrain Ah, I remember that when my cats were still here - having to make sure you had everything you needed before settling down, just so you didn‘t disturb the little menaces! 😻😻 5mo

julesG @squirrelbrain And they always ignore you for ages when you have everything next to you. But just before you need to get up and moving they snuggle up and fall asleep. 5mo
squirrelbrain And then the protesting they do when you have to move... weeeeeaaaawwww! 5mo
julesG @squirrelbrain And hogging your perfect reading spot when you return from the loo. 😁 5mo
Leftcoastzen So adorable! 5mo
Cinfhen Sweet😻 5mo
GingerAntics We used to have one that purred like a freakin motor boat. You could hear it across the room. 5mo

Ann Rule and Ted Bundy were friends and coworkers at a Crisis hotline. At the same time, he was committing the murders that she was writing about. It‘s terrifying that someone so smart and educated about crime can still be unaware that a serial killer is working side by side with her and walking her to her car after work to ensure she is safe (because there‘s a killer on the loose ya know) 🥶 #younevercantell #maymoviemagic @Cinfhen @rohit-sawant

Cinfhen So true!!! #YouNeverCanTell !!!! This book was so good! 5mo
AmyG It‘s wild. Ted Bundy has lived in so many places that my family has lived....VT, MI, CO. Such a good book. 5mo

#YouNeverCanTell when it is the right time to start a book. I started this 4 months ago, read 20 pages, was bored to tears and sure I would hate it. So I put it down, and haven‘t been motivated to pick it up again. That is‘ until yesterday, where I read 120 pages in the blink of an eye, and enjoyed every second of it! Perfect example that every book has its time to be read 👌


Kate.Braithwaite So very true!! 5mo
TrishB Agreed 👍🏻 5mo
RealLifeReading Definitely! Also cute cover! 5mo

rohit-sawant So true! 5mo
LeahBergen It‘s so true, isn‘t it?? 5mo
Amandajoy I need to remember this and not be afraid to put down a book. 5mo
Centique I have to remind myself of that and give books a second try. I'm in love with this cover though! 5mo
