“Tempers flare. Maybe there‘s some cussing. Maybe even a fight. But tempers fade eventually. Doubt lingers. Burrows through your heart, steals away your happiness. Slowly consumes you from within.” (p. 165)

Finally, finally finished this one... overall, it‘s not the worst book I‘ve ever read, but IMHO, it is very boring with a weak plot. The character are mostly uninteresting, and at times the time skips feel like a crutch. However, the last 60 pages actually make the book worth reading and has some really beautiful lines and imagery. I give it 🌟🌟.. the ending is its saving grace... #pbc #genrebending @Wife

rjsthumbelina I was honestly having trouble with it in the print, but I started listening to it on audio while reading, and it totally changed my experience! It brought the characters to life for me. I didn't think the plot was super strong either - the only storyline I liked was the one about being in the movies 1y

#GenreSwapPBC #genrebending Group A
I finished last month, but mailing today. So, Becky, you will have it soon. I don‘t want to give any spoilers, but just say I‘m happy to have read it. Only a so-so because it had a couple slow spots. 3/5 ⭐️s
I‘m nervous about a couple of my reads coming from the group, but I‘m brave and determined. 😬
Background is the puzzle my grandson and I worked on last night.

TheRomantiCate I know the thought.. 😝 1y
collegecatlady I hope you enjoy some of the other picks from your group! It‘s quite an adventure to read other people‘s picks in many different genres. I look forward to seeing everyone‘s journey! 1y

Now I want like ten more dystopian cozy mysteries. Immediately.

Genre mash-ups are high risk, high reward - and this one is a joy. It's like watching Midsommer Murders after the apocalypse.

Ok so this is the book I choose for #genreswapPBC and I‘m feeling a tad overwhelmed... see, confession time: I don‘t keep a book journal while I read so I‘m not sure what I need to be noting... I feel like I should be filling a notebook with my thoughts on every paragraph, but that feels exhausting... and it‘s affecting my reading because I‘m too focused on what I should be noting... any tips for this novice noted?? #genrebending

Burghbookaddict I wrote directly in my book whenever I had a random thought, but I felt like I didnt really write enough either! I dont think theres any right or wrong way to do it, tho, so I would just do whatever you feel like 😊 1y
TheRomantiCate @laurenashley I see... perhaps that would be best...? 1y
Burghbookaddict Yeah I couldnt think of a good way to do it with a journal so thats the route I went 1y

TheRomantiCate @laurenashley I thought that I could keep it like a stream of thought deal, but that would take forever, and I‘ve fallen behind enough as it is... 1y
ElishaLovesBooks I would just annotate big ideas, things that seem shocking/ surprising, and any questions. Maybe also your opinions. (Can you tell I teach reading to middle schoolers?😉) I think more than that and it will take the fun out of reading! Good luck! 1y
TheRomantiCate @ElishaLovesBooks ok that makes sense ☺️☺️ 1y
SledgeReader @TheRomantiCate @laurenashley @ElishaLovesBooks Glad to read this thread. I‘ve been struggling with the same issue. Sort of found my way in the same direction. 😊 1y
TheRomantiCate @SledgeReader well as I‘ve been reading I‘ve been marking in the book, underlining things I want to remember, writing little thoughts in the margins... I don‘t know how it works for others, but I‘m doing my best hehe 😄 1y

Case Histories: A Novel | Kate Atkinson
post image
Pickpick

At first the format distracted me, but when I finally made some connections, I was hooked. Atkinson's ability to move among the voices of each of her characters and bring each to its own unique fruition is masterful. Combined with unexpected plot twists and bizarre crimes, this hard-to-classify novel will keep you thinking long after you're done. Definitely recommend. 👍 #sortofacrimenovel #sortofliteraryfiction #genrebending
