Based on the Litsy reviews it sounds like Janet has a #sweetdisposition - though not because she's nice to everyone. When I hear that a character loves animals, rightfully distrusts many people, and has a unique sense of humor, this sounds like someone I'd like to meet.

LeahBergen Oh, man!!! I ADORED this book!! 6mo
saresmoore Oh, you made me think of this book and I was instantly transported to it‘s sticky weirdness! So. Good. 6mo
Billypar @LeahBergen @saresmoore I'm excited to try it! I've pushed it to the front of my brain for the next book store trip. 6mo

This is what #modernlove means to me; it‘s about the chaos and recriminations that ensue when someone posts a compromising photo on social media.

I‘m just glad I did my growing up before the internet!

I think the Stones song was written about Vietnam and violence in general during that era, but the lyrics could apply to school shootings. HTBS occurs in the aftermath of a school shooting: I haven't read any other novels or nonfiction on the subject, so I'm curious to try one. Tough to even consider in a time like this when we've just had another one in the U.S., but maybe that means I should read it sooner.

Cinfhen I‘ve previously stacked this book, but don‘t remember hearing much about it. Thanks for the reminder 6mo

#HowFarIllGo #MayMovieMadness
When the weekend ends, sometimes I have the odd fantasy of wanting to escape to some vague, lonely city by the sea, and just read for several days without interruption. I might be able to make some progress on my TBR then 🤔
Just placed a hold on the Olivia Laing, which sounds like an interesting reflection on her move to NYC and the loneliness she experienced there, along with an analysis of the same feelings in art.

readordierachel That sounds pretty perfect actually. Curious about the book! I'm reading Crudo right now and really enjoying it. 6mo
rohit-sawant Ha, sign me up for reading by vague, lonely city! 6mo
Billypar @readordierachel Good to know about Crudo- Laing wasn't on my radar before, but I'm always happy to discover new authors. 6mo
