#WeeklyForecast 38/22

I just started Seven Moons for the #Bookerprize2022. It looks challenging. If there‘s time I want to start the tagged book for #ReadingAfrica2022.

Cinfhen I have Seven Moons too but im just not inspired to read it!!! Curious to see how you get on with it!! Your NF looks good 😊 2w
Megabooks Great picks for the week! 2w
BookwormM I really enjoyed 7 moons hope you do 🤞 2w

BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @BookwormM I bailed after only 20 pages… I just couldn‘t do it. So many pov‘s, names, I had no clue what it was about and am not in the mood to find out 🤷🏻‍♀️ #hibernation 2w
Vansa I'm not surprised 😂I find Karunatilaka quite unreadable, honestly, and some of his metaphors are so idiotic, I'm baffled an editor let them through.A lot of modern novels could do with extensive editing,in my opinion,and authors should be told not to be so self indulgent! 2w
Cinfhen I fear I‘m gonna be in the same headspace as you, Barbara!!! And I agree @Vansa some editors are really preening to their authors 2w
BookwormM Oh no that is a shame maybe when the headspace is right … 2w

It‘s so sad to see these empty bookcases! 😢 Especially since I won‘t see my books (except the few I will carry with me) until the end of October.

I didn‘t think I read as much as I did…. There‘s something to be said for shorter length books & audios 😁🙌🏻❣️I bailed on The Idiot and placed Sweetgrass in #hibernation ☹️will start #TrueBiz later today & hopefully get back to the new Zevin. I really enjoyed Lioness & End of Her. The others were all good to very good.

Mccall0113 I also had to pause on the sweet grass 4mo
TrishB A great week 👍🏻 4mo
Bookzombie Great week! 🙂 4mo

Cinfhen Thanks @TrishB @Bookzombie my kids are arriving this week for the next month…so I‘m not sure I‘ll be doing as much reading 🙈 4mo
Cinfhen I feel bad hibernating Sweetgrass but….. it‘s sooooooo slow @Mccall0113 4mo
TrishB Ahh- but it will be family time ♥️ 4mo
thereadingpal How do you read so much jfkfkdkd I'm so jealous 4mo
Cinfhen Low page count, short audios, and a pretty carefree schedule makes my reading easy 😉 @thereadingpal 4mo

I didn‘t expect to finish #TheGoldfinch today already, but then my train got delayed for 90 minutes, so I suddenly had a lot more times. I also made waffles 🧇 today ☺️.
The first 100 pages and the last 20 were one of the most beautiful pages ever written. The rest is very long, often still good, but it‘s also very long.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5


SRWCF I loved the movie 🎬 so much! 8mo
thewallflower0707 @SRWCF It‘s on my Netflix watchlist. Although, apart from your comment, I‘ve only heard bad things about it. 8mo
Cathythoughts My copy is in #hibernation but I haven‘t forgotten it and hope I‘ll get beck to it soon ...or someday , I agree about the beautiful writing 8mo
Cathythoughts Oh it‘s a movie .... I must try and find it 8mo

I‘m surprised by how much I read this week. One book went into #hibernation but the rest were all enjoyable. I really enjoyed my YA #SFF and my IRL bookclub book (The Lost Shtetl). The Mercies was a well written HF and I look forward to discussing with the #LiteraryCrew
Next week I hope to focus on #ReadingAfrica22 - I‘ve started the memoir by #Ethiopian born chef, Marcus Samuelsson and it‘s quite good. I think my weakest read was the romance😒

squirrelbrain A fab week! 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks @squirrelbrain it didn‘t feel like I was making so much progress/ surprised myself 😁 8mo
TrishB Great week 👍🏻 8mo
Megabooks Great job! 8mo
Bookzombie Great week! 💗 8mo
