Thought this was great. Listened to it on audio, and I just flew through it. Really enjoyable.

If you like your summer beach reading to have some bite to it, may I recommend this one? Absolutely unputdownable, full of honesty and nostalgia (not sentimental), memories, wry commentary, history, and truthiness. I loved every minute of it.

marleed I‘m reading right now and loving it! 14h
JSW @marleed so good! 14h
Owlizabeth 🙌🏼 12h
BarbaraTheBibliophage I need to start my copy. You‘ve convinced me! Everyone else I‘m reading is so **heavy**. 11h
JSW @BarbaraTheBibliophage yes, this is excellent fluff with heart and soul. Much needed! 11h

So, wow, this book! If you saw my previous post, you know it kept me up way past my bedtime. I loved Vivian and the tone of the novel. I loved the setting of 1940‘s NYC and the theater and all of the characters. It was funny and poignant and tackled serious subjects lightly but sharply, if that makes any sense. I‘m going to be recommending this one to everyone. I absolutely adored it. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

AmyG Yes! I am only halfway through and just loving this book. The characters are so colorful, the writing is so witty. It‘s going to be hard for me- to get anything done around here! I just want to read. 2d
Freespirit @Owlizabeth and @AmyG you are inspiring me to read this. I loved her previous books💕 2d
AmyG @Freespirit I loved her previous books, too. This one may just be her best so far. 2d

At that point of no return, I‘m either closing this book now and attempting sleep, or I‘m plowing straight through to the end, 6 am alarm be damned.

Who am I kidding, I‘m not getting any sleep tonight!

I love this feeling - being consumed by a story. And I know y‘all love it too. #litsyfamily #mypeople

This reminded me a lot of Donna Tartt‘s The Secret History writing-wise. I didn‘t really like any of the characters, but I was compelled to know what happened. Price does an excellent job of examining the aftermath of sexual assault from so many different angles, not only from the victim‘s POV but how it affects others in her life. Really impressive debut novel and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Spontaneous-ish trip to NYC. I drove down to spend a night with my friend and meet her newborn. We have a lot of catching up to do, so I‘m not actually reading much, but I had to bring it with me because I know how much Gilbert loves NYC.

marleed I can‘t wait to read this one and have fun in NYC! 3d

So, I‘ve had a few beers tonight. More than usual since I had knee surgery last month. Also earlier, I picked this book up at the library today, brought it home, and now I‘m reading this. Kinda fun and strange, and really enjoying!
