This is the perfect example of don‘t judge a book by it‘s cover. This book is way meatier than expected and quite literary as well. The unnamed narrator is a 58 year old professor at a small liberal arts college where her husband has been accused of numerous cases of sexual assault. What she‘s unaware of is how the allegations will affect her. A true page turner with some unexpected surprises. #Booked2022 #DarkAcademia

TrishB I looked at this and thought I could not read this on the bus! Definitely judging by the cover 😁 2y
Cinfhen Maybe on your kindle ☺️but I‘d wait for a #DailyDeal @TrishB xx 2y
Bklover From various reviews this sounds good, but good grief the cover is awful! 😆 2y
Cinfhen The cover is really deceiving @Bklover - I get why the author/ publisher wanted to take this approach but it takes away from the book‘s literary qualities 2y

I read a fair number of business books, and this one didn‘t do it for me. I much preferred Billion Dollar Loser (tagged below), which is more a profile of CEO Adam Neumann. His eccentricities are the star of this story, not the figures from funding rounds. I just found myself tuning out. This is heresy for me because I still love her, but Therese Plummer was not a good narrator match for the #audiobook.

Cinfhen Appreciate your review!! I bought Billion Dollar Loser on a #DailyDeal a few months ago!! Must get to it 3y
Megabooks @Cinfhen 👍🏻👍🏻 3y

In 1934, at the height of eugenics, heiress Ann Cooper Hewitt‘s mother had her sterilized claiming that she was an oversexed imbecile when she was neither. Mom just wanted her inheritance. This book cover‘s Ann‘s life, the trial of the doctors who sterilized her, and also the broader issues of forced and coerced sterilization in the US up through today. The lack of control women still have over whether or when they have children so angers me!

Megabooks @Riveted_Reader_Melissa and @BarbaraTheBibliophage I think you‘d both find this book interesting! 3y
MallenNC I just heard about this case on the podcast Criminal. 3y
Megabooks @MallenNC what were their thoughts on it? 3y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Megabooks I do! stacking!!!! 3y
Cinfhen I think I bought this recently on a #DailyDeal - makes me think of poor Britney #FreeBritney 3y
Megabooks @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 3y
Megabooks @Cinfhen yes!! I thought of that as well, in regards to it also being a high profile case. But I also thought about the whistleblower (that they discuss in this book too) that exposed all the Fallopian tube removals happening at some detention centers. I am just completely sick of any men thinking they know what‘s best for women/ppl with uteruses (individually or us as a group) when it comes to reproductive choices/health. 😡 3y
Jennifer3 Definitely, #FreeBritney! 3y
Megabooks @Jennifer3 💯💯💯 3y
BkClubCare Omg this sounds horrific 3y
Megabooks @BkClubCare it totally is. 3y
MallenNC @Megabooks I looked back and the author of this book was on the podcast. The show told Anne‘s story and how her mother did this to her without her knowing and against her will. I‘m going to look for this book. 3y
Megabooks @MallenNC I hope you enjoy it. The story is fascinating! Thanks for telling me about the podcast. 3y

Mexican Gothic | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

#Kobo daily deal is Mexican Gothic for $2.99! And because it‘s Kobo, if you purchase through your local indie they should get some money. I just used the buy link@at BankSquareBooks.com and got it for 2.99. Reminder, you can still side load Kobo books onto your #Nook with Adobe although it is a bit annoying. #ebook #dailydeal #spookyseason

Disappearing Earth | Julia Phillips
post image

#BookReport 48/19

I read three books this week. It started out good with the fantastic Disappearing Earth. I had high hopes for Missoula too because I love Krakauer‘s style but this one was too much of a report for me. Then a book set in space which didn‘t disappoint but didn‘t blow me away either. And on we go!

Theaelizabet I‘m on the list at my library for Disappearing Earth. I may break down and buy it! 5y
Cinfhen Lots of mixed reviews on Disappearing Earth. I picked it up from library over the summer but I had to return it before I could really get into it. I‘m waiting for a #DailyDeal before I try it again. 5y
BarbaraBB @Theaelizabet I think it‘ll be worth it... 😀 5y
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I hope you will. I really think you‘ll enjoy it too. 5y
Suet624 I‘m so glad you liked it. 5y
