I tried really hard to do one of those fun face photos with my book... #epicfail

post image

#MOvember #TrueBlue For as long as Blue can remember, she‘s been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore. I actually tried to read this book....#EpicFail wayyyyyy to YA for me but it has a 95% rating (I probably ruined its perfect score 😉)

Girl, Woman, Other | Bernardine Evaristo

This year there‘s two winners for the Booker Prize.

I read and loved “Girl, Woman, Other”, so I‘m happy about this winning.
“The Testaments” is still on my tbr, but I‘ve seen a lot of mixed reviews.

Have there ever been two winners before? Does anyone know?
What do you think of the winners?

TheEllieMo This is the third time; the previous occasions have been in 1974 and 1992. The rules were changed after the 1992 decision, stating that “the prize may not be divided or withheld”, so the judges have broken the award‘s own rules 🤷‍♀️. I haven‘t read Girl, Woman, Other yet but if it‘s worthy of being a winner, it should be THE winner. There‘ll be a bit of controversy around this, methinks 5mo
Reviewsbylola @TheEllieMo that‘s interesting! I find it difficult to believe they couldn‘t narrow it down to one. 5mo
Kalalalatja I‘m with you @Reviewsbylola - one might even get the thought that they just *needed* to give the prize to Atwood, in spite of it not being the better book, so they had to break their own rules 5mo

BarbaraBB I have very mixed feelings about this. Atwood wrote a sequel to a book that didn‘t win the Prize but has become a commercial hit since the series. To me that sounds cheap for a Booker Prize especially since the buzz around it created by the Booker itself. So I agree with @TheEllieMo @Reviewsbylola @Kalalalatja . Evaristo should have won. (edited) 5mo
AnneCecilie I had no idea that there was a rule against joint winners. That makes the decision even more controversial, I would think. Apparently the judges discussed for 4 hrs and decided on two winners, then they discussed for another 30 min to see if they could choose one. I still agree with you all, it‘s strange that they couldn‘t decide on one. @TheEllieMo @Reviewsbylola @Kalalalatja @BarbaraBB (edited) 4mo
Cinfhen I‘ve read both and it‘s RECOGNIZABLY clear that Evaristo wrote the better book. She deserved to be the ONLY WINNER. That said, I think awarding the prize to Atwood will have a negative backlash for The Testaments. The whole thing stinks/ it diminishes the #BookerPrize and their judging committee #EpicFail 4mo

By far one of the worst books I have read/listened to. I‘m not even 100% sure what made me keep going when all I wanted was to be done with it. I read the reviews which seemed mixed but I just kept hoping it would get better. All I could think (during the whole book) was that Caroline was completely nuts, and I was right. She was completely coo coo for Cocoa Puffs. #epicfail #audiobook #shecray

jpmcwisemorgan I downloaded it to my phone. 12mo
mcipher @jmtrivera Awesome! Glad to have you join us! 12mo
mcipher @Carolyn11215 How many are in the series? Are they all good (that you read?) (edited) 12mo
Carolyn11215 @mcipher there are 5 books in the series. I‘ve read 4 of them. Loved them all. Going to be sad when I‘m finished with the series! 12mo
mcipher @Carolyn11215 That is always tough with a series you love. I‘m excited that if I like it there‘s more to look forward to, though! 12mo

I was unexpectedly blessed with 2 (🤩) #myfavoritebookswap matches and they both went to the post today!!! Both should be about 5 business days. Hope you enjoy! @TheKidUpstairs @RavenLovelyReads

RavenLovelyReads Can‘t wait-it‘s my first swap ever 😀 2y
FantasyChick Yay!!!! @RavenLovelyReads Just so you know, not everything is wrapped! I tried to fit as much in that box as I could so I left some without the wrapping lol 2y
RavenLovelyReads Oooh! None of yours are wrapped....so sorry! It was my first swap 😞#epicfail 2y
FantasyChick @RavenLovelyReads No worries!!! I haven't opened the box, I just hid it so I wouldnt be tempted lol. It's not required to wrap anyway but I usually do to extend the suspense 😏 2y
TheKidUpstairs Woo Hoo! So exciting! I wasn't able to get to the post office yesterday, due to epic rain. I'm heading there today and will let you knows the ETA for your package! 2y

Really, Amazon??? This is how you package two books?? That‘s not very sustainable. 😡 #epicfail #somebodyfuckedup #youhadonejob

TiredLibrarian My fiance got a similar box last week containing... 1 CD! 🙄😕🤪 2y
kathedron Whaaat?! 😫 2y
Soubhiville Yep. I‘ve gotten similar packages. Ridiculous. 2y
Chocamanda You'd think the company that sells everything would have packaging envelopes 🙄 2y
MommyOfTwo Wow! 😮 2y
MommyOfTwo @Chocamanda the do have envelopes, not sure why this was even an option! They have smaller boxes than that too!!!!! 2y
Sophoclessweetheart OMG.... 🤭 2y
Chocamanda @MommyOfTwo This kind of packaging waste is so frustrating. That box looks giant. I wish they had a packaging preference option. 2y
Suzze When I worked at Barnes & Noble we actually got a large box with only one bookmark in it! 2y
batsy What on earth... 2y
scripturient @Lizpixie @Sarah83 @erzascarletbookgasm @TiredLibrarian @River_Voice @Soubhiville @Chocamanda @MommyOfTwo @Sorceryandswords @Suzze @batsy It‘s so frustrating. When the DHL guy arrived I wondered for a sec if maybe I had placed a larger order than I wanted to. You know how it goes with books. 😂 But don‘t worry, I‘ll reuse both the box and the air packs. I am looking forward to getting their stupid ‘rate our packaging‘ email though. 👿😈 2y
2BR02B Modcloth does the same thing. Like a 2'x2' box filled with airpacks and one scarf. Aside from practicality, you'd think it would be more cost effective for them to just ship it in a padded envelope? 2y
Skyrimir I order a small bottle of vitamins for my cat every few months and they send it in a HUGE box too. Like, the bottle fits in my hand, but the box is big enough for 50 bottles. 2y
Billypar But to play devil's advocate, how many times have you opened your book mail only to find large cracks and spider web fractures obscuring every page 😝 2y
Yanes Nooooooo they did not... 2y
BibliOphelia They do this ALL THE TIME. To be fair, I have a personal rule that I don‘t buy books from them - but when I get other things... I am trying to break my Prime habit! 2y
bookaholic1 Burst out laughing...sorry!! 2y
MiyakoBunny Holy sh*t 🤦🏻‍♀️📦💩💩💩 2y
Karkar They did this to me too last week! I had one small box of dog food and The new SK book and it was in this huge box with no padding or protection. 2y
zembla I read somewhere that they do a weird thing where they calculate efficiency by the truckload, so the box may be too big for your shipment, but it was probably the perfect size to fit in the truck, make the most of that load, and prevent breakage. 2y

Redy2trvl Yay!!!! So glad it arrived!!! I totally forgot my box stickers! #epicfail 2y
Chrissyreadit @Redy2trvl it was exciting- - he thought it was Books I ordered for him. We had to discuss that my name on the box means do not open!!! 2y
Gissy So excited! A couple of more days! 2y

Thank you so much @DGRachel !! I think my whole family will be fighting over the Wonder Woman mug and Leia cozy!! So cute!

Unfortunately, I can‘t drink the cocoa because it contains coconut oil, which I am allergic too, but my daughter will be more than happy to take them from me! 😂😂😂 Thank you for a fantastic #muglove box!

Cheshirecat913 Love the bug. 2y
DGRachel I‘m so sorry about the coconut oil! I didn‘t even think to check for that. 😔 #epicfail 2y
4thhouseontheleft @DGRachel That‘s ok!! Don‘t worry about it! There are definitely other people in the house who will be happy to have it (and those people will not be touching my new mug 😂😂😂). Coconut is so tricky, it sneaks into a lot of things you normally wouldn‘t think of - it‘s not in a lot of hot cocoas, but in some. It‘s also in all movie theater 🍿! 2y
