When Breath Becomes Air | Paul Kalanithi

Pickpick

Read this for a upcoming book club but admittedly it had been on my shelf for quite awhile and I had always been hesitant to read since I knew the gist of it. I did cry a couple times. I figured I would. I‘m really excited to see what the other members will think of it.
Also the widow looks to be dating another memoirist widow now?

When Breath Becomes Air | Paul Kalanithi
post image

Getting ready to read this for a book club & I made corn bread muffins which are amazing. Oh and my new cute pillow. Is this going to make me cry?

Also I know I‘ve been mia lately and it makes me sad. But I‘ve been in such a stressed out slump. I hope I can come back to reading a lot more. I have so many books to read.

Probably the last book I read of 2020 for a book club. I actually already owned it cause it was one of my dollar tree finds. Wasn‘t as good as I‘d hoped. Most of the people didn‘t enjoy it that much. The ending was just so abrupt - we knew the ending from the start but I wanted more details about why things happened.

Taking a break from The Selection series (even though I don't want to) to read my #librarybookclub pick. I hope it's good!

Less: A Novel | Andrew Sean Greer

This was a book club pick. And it was good. Had some note worthy lines which I‘ll try to remember to share shortly. I wasn‘t blown away by it like some of them were but I also think I‘m in a terrible head space and life space to pay a lot of attention in my reading which is awful.

Here‘s my TBR for June, including my #bookspin (Into the Wild) and #doublespin (The Bookshop on the Corner). I‘ve already started the tagged.

MaleficentBookDragon The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is my #Doublespin pick and my #librarybookclub selection this month. Let me know what you think of it. 2y
AmyK1 @MaleficentBookDragon will do 👍🏼 I‘ve heard good things about it. 2y
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! You have some fun ones!! I'm really looking forward to Windy Poplars, although I have to read Anne of the Island first as it didn't quite happen in May!!! 2y

Read this one for my queer book club for tomorrow. Can‘t say I enjoyed it. Kind of not even looking forward to the meeting tomorrow. Well and I have to go to the dentist tomorrow which I‘m dreading.

Didn‘t care for this one. It was a book club pick. The best thing about this book was the cover.

lynneamch Yup. Just finished and have to pan it too. Some social commentary about gender roles and societal expectations but others do it better. At least it was a quick read. May have been better as a short story 3y
allureofbeauty @lynneamch yea I‘m also glad it was at least quick. I admittedly didn‘t read the last like 20%. I just didn‘t care and it was the middle of my moms death and the pandemic and I didn‘t think we would have the meeting. A short story probably would have been a lot better for it. 3y
lynneamch Oh I'm so sorry about your mom. I hope you are doing ok and finding some comfort in spite of these already difficult times. 3y

Was one of my picks for our book club. I enjoyed it though but I did have some issues retaining information at first with everything going on.
