Book 18
I listened to this book, which may have contributed to my inability to connect to it. (I wasn't a fan of the voice acting; her pronunciation of "rifling" was irksome.) To attempt to sum up the story would be to develop the plot further than it was developed and to add intrigue where there was none. The characters were not likable, all were stagnant, and their decisions were absent any redeeming qualities. I cannot understand the hype.

A beautiful (but predictable) book about a young poet who falls in love with the stereotypical rich East coast trust fund girl. I want to spend the weekend in Vermont and sit on a porch in a thunderstorm.

Books like this one are why I love reading challenges. I only picked it up because it is set in #Lithuania and I needed that one for #ReadingEurope2020, but I ended up really liking it. It explores heavy topics like accepting a diagnosis of mental illness and how heavy family history can weigh, but is told with great heart and humor.

Many thanks to @Megabooks for putting this one on my radar!

I love books set in South Asia. The things I loved the most about this novel were the descriptions of the Kashmiri landscape and the variety of character personalities. Religion, wealth, love, loss, and injustice are all important themes.

This book interests me for the armchair travel to Vilnius, Lithuania & also because it shows the perils of traveling with mental illness.

Lucas & his daughter Vera travel to Vilnius after Vera has a tough school year due to a bipolar diagnosis. Lucas also wants to find family left after the Holocaust.

The book is told between Vera‘s increasingly unstable emails to her boyfriend Fang, & Lucas‘s first person narration as part of the travel group.

Librarybelle Good choice! I‘ve seen this around but had not heard too many reviews about it. Stacking it! 1mo
