For Real | Alison Cherry
post image

I read a lot of non-fiction (for me) this Spring for a book prize committee that I was part of. Today, I was listening to the most recent All the Books and Liberty‘s co-host this week is a host for Book Riot‘s non-fiction podcast, For Real. This week‘s episode is a recap of the best non-fiction of 2019 so far and Liberty Hardy was a guest host in a quid pro quo. I am excited to find some other titles to add to my nonfiction TBR! #bookriot #forreal

LauraJ Thanks for sharing! 2mo

This novel is an exquisite meditation on grief and mental illness. It is dark and sometimes difficult to read as a result, but so beautifully written. I highly recommend it, but don‘t read it if you‘re pregnant—wait until later. Her publishers need to get her some foreign distribution rights post-haste!

Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen It‘s good! Heavy indeed, but beautifully written. I hope you can track it down! 2y
Cinfhen Thanks so much for letting me know...I‘m checking BookDepository right now, even though I‘m on a #bookbuyingban #forreal 2y
Cinfhen It comes up as unavailable on BookDepository ~ I‘ll check back in a few weeks & on Amazon too😀 2y
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen You‘re welcome! And good luck with that ban—I can never make them stick. 😬 2y
TheSloanRanger So glad you liked it (if like is even the right word IDK it's so tortuously beautiful!) She's just released a new one called The Gulf. Highly recommended 👌 (and picked up this copy from Booktopia, though they might be Aussie only @Cinfhen!) 2y

Ok, don't hate me, but these movies were horrible. The books are so specific and beautiful, and the characters are so memorable. The movies didn't do the complexity of the books justice. In the Heart of the Sea was such an amazing piece of non-fiction. The movie was lacking so much. Ugh. ☹️️📚#octphotochallenge #ruinedbythemovie

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I didn't like Alice much either (haven't seen the other one) 3y
Leelee08 @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I'm glad I'm not alone! 3y

Shortstack In the Heart of the sea was the worst movie! My boyfriend and I loved the book so much so were doubly disappointed! 3y
Leelee08 @Shortstack I agree 100%!! 3y
KarenUK 👍 3y
mcctrish It's sad but sometimes I think while reading a book "OMG I can just see this as a movie" and then they make the movie and I think " OMG I can't go and see that movie it will be wrecked" 3y
Leelee08 @mcctrish I'm the same way! It's like I want to see it as a movie, but I really don't want them to screw up something that I love sooooo much.... 3y
LibrarianRyan I agree on Alice. Not seen heart of the sea yet. 3y
Zelma Agreed! I liked certain aspects of the Alice movie, but it was not my thing at all. Too many changes, too much focus on the wrong characters. It was visually gorgeous but was pretty terrible. 3y
Leelee08 @Zelma Definitely! 3y
ValerieAndBooks This may seem like a dumb question but what about the Disney Alice? Believe it or not I have never read Alice or seen any of the movie adaptations. But I did recently buy the book so I can remedy that! 3y
Faibka Looooved In the Heart of the Sea, so well researched. Didn't see the movie, how disappointing that it wasn't good :( 3y
