Last stack of library holds for the year before I switch over to reading my own books for the rest of the year. What a stack to go out on—I‘m looking forward to every single one of these!

Mehso-so

Just meh. A good and well-paced plot but an unsatisfying ending/wrap-up

This book looks at the way we see ourselves and the way others see us. Also how our interpretations of events can differ from others, and how memories can change over time. Deborah Levy's writting is exquisite. The story unfolds in 2 parts about the narrator but nothing is as it seems. If you like books with clear beginnings and endings then this is NOT the book for you. It's a puzzle with no clear answers but one that is a joy to be a part of.

JulietBooks Looking at pictures of myself feels weird, because I look totally different than how I feel about myself. You can take the picture, but that person in the picture ain't me. #ItIsHalloweenMonth #spooky 👻😱 6d

I‘m probably jumping the gun, but here are some book suggestions for #literaryfiction #GroupL #lmpbc #round7. I went with backlist titles from female writers.

Let me know what you think, ladies. 💙

sprainedbrain I love that you‘ve done this already! I‘ve read The Accidental fairly recently, but I would be happy with any of the other 3. If I had to choose one, I think 1w
Chili I haven‘t read any of them. The Visit from the Goon Squad has been on my TBR list forever. Any of them would be an excellent choice. 1w
suvata I‘m interested in reading some Sally Rooney. 7d

A remarkable piece of writing as the author imagines the effect of chemical castration upon the genius mind of alec Pryor (Alan turing). Using his theory of AI, dreams, mirrors and memory the prose is poetic, challenging, + letters to ex fiance, it is rewarding & heartbreaking that the state chose to destroy a man whose contribution to the war effort and science cannot be quantified. I will reread this bk as i feel i will benefit rdg again.

Wonderful book! The story of the residents of 10 Dulcimer Street, London leading up to WW11. Ordinary lives, trials and tribulations, relationships told in wonderful detail. My only complaint is when I got to the last page... it was missing!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don‘t remember who recommended this book to me for #SouthDakota in the #ReadingUSA2019 challenge but I really loved it. All different worlds come together (the wild west, an Indian reservation and Nazi Germany) in this western about friendship and horses. Very atmospheric, very little is said but with so much meaning.
The book gets hardly any attention here on Litsy but it‘a absolutely worth reading.

squirrelbrain Sounds like a good one! Stacked anyway, even though I don‘t need South Dakota! 1w
BarbaraBB @squirrelbrain I thought you might but then I scrolles your timeline and found your read! 1w
