My July TBR. Most of this will likely not be finished but it‘s good to have goals. The tagged book for #SundayBuddyRead & 3 for #PemberLittens + Bourdain for my virtual foodie book club (a reread) & 2 for book tour reviews should all get read. I‘ll finish my in-process books & the rest will depend on my moody reader feelings. I only have Crying in H Mart this week as a “jump-the-line” library e-book hold so it‘s iffy that I‘ll get it done.📚🤔

Graciouswarriorprincess I love Ellie‘s books! 1d

#BookReport 26/22

I read three very different books again. I adored Oh William, enjoyed Devil House and was a bit disappointed by Red Island House

All in all, a good week!

squirrelbrain Glad you loved Oh William! ❤️ 2d
BarbaraBB @squirrelbrain Yes, very much! And I heard there‘s a sequel coming out in September! 2d
squirrelbrain I just applied for it this week on #netgalley…I don‘t hold out much hope though! 2d

The Promise | Damon Galgut

Wow, this is masterful storytelling. Galgut follows a family on their South African farm, through several decades. Each decade is told from a different family members pov. The characters are so lifelike you can almost hear them breathing. Alongside the immediate family are a collection of friends, extended family, all adding to the story in their unique ways.

so many major differences between novel and film, but i loved nonetheless. the role of jesse in the book is more appreciated and adding julia as guardian ad litem is smart. i still don‘t believe the ending actually happened though; so jail in my opinion but also it was well executed and written. the whole story is very smartly written. i also love the pov switches and ending with kate‘s. i‘ll always love this story!!

This one hit too close to home for comfort, and I'm sure I'll have to process for this a while; it will probably be the most impactful, bringing up nostalgia and heart heaviness for a while, until another one with its themes articulated in a similar way comes along. It was sad to watch these reactions and interactions, and a sad mirror of our society and sexist relationship assumptions we have to work on. Recommended for men to read for reflection

Four books I had 50 pages or less to complete that I finished in June (this week). One I already gave away to a little free street library (Ed McBain's 1957 standalone, Vanishing Girls). 2 books at 4.5 stars for impact and accomplishment in depicting life; 1 at 2.5 stars; 1 not sure how to rate. 2 contemporary, 2 mid-century noir.Getting back into the library system didn't help to focus me in the end. Not very impressive but there it is.

A perfectly easy summer read. I love novels and their ability to suck you in. This one did just that!

Gissy @BeaG Yes, this is an author I will like to try. She has another book but I wanted to try this one first. I‘m trying to read books by authors from countries not so familiar to me. Thank you for choosing this one🥰 2d
