I started this over a week ago, put it down to read the #earlyreviewer book I received, then got distracted by the release of the new Lady Darby book. Time to return to Flavia and her exploits.

I have been very lucky with LibraryThing #earlyreviewer books. Another arrived today, and this looks interesting. It‘s translated from Lithuanian, and apparently was the book of the year in Lithuania when it was published in 2011. Looking forward to this.

Crazeedi You are lucky! I keep entering haven't won! I'm still trying!! 2mo
Lynnsoprano @crazeedi I‘m not sure why I‘ve been so lucky. This was the only book I requested last month, so I really didn‘t expect to get it. This month has so many in the list that I‘m interested in, but I bet I don‘t win any😄 2mo
Tamra There is no blurb, so I‘m anxious for your review! 2mo
Crazeedi @Lynnsoprano that's pretty cool that you chose 1 book and got it! I just requested for this month, I do it every month too. Good luck!! 2mo

Somewhat entertaining and a very fast paced plot. This satire of Harvard life definitely hits some blows, but, overall, still seems to be impressed and in awe of the University as an institution and, in spite of featuring diverse characters, still the underdog heroes had more than a whiff of elitism and deference. #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer

This book, which I received as an #EarlyReviewer from #LibraryThing arrived today. It is compelling reading which I should finish later this evening.

SqueakyChu This was an extraordinarily emotionally moving book which I read through in one sitting. The nonagenarian author shares painful memories as well as thoughts about aging, religion, and what the future might hold. Very highly recommended. (edited) 3mo

There is a fast paced family drama at the heart of this book which had me reading past my bedtime. But, there were several extra subplots and ideas which distracted from the story (not sure why this needs to be set in 2079 and address climate change, for example). And, ultimately, the ending wasn‘t really satisfying for me, keeping this from being a pick. #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer

emilyhaldi Agreed!!! Ugh, that climate change subplot had me madder than I had any reason to be!! 😆 what did that add?! 4mo

A fictionalized biography of one of the “dollar brides,” Consuelo Vanderbilt. A very interesting character who led a full life, this is well written, and the author‘s comments at the end really are a nice addition. It took longer to read than I expected, because I ended up googling so many names and historical events. I‘ll put a full review up on LibraryThing in a day or two, as this was an #earlyreviewer book.

Crazeedi Looks like an interesting one! 4mo
