On the Come Up | Angie Thomas

Gift. One word, one syllable. I don‘t know if it rhymes with anything because it‘s a word I never thought could be used when it comes to me.

I‘m lost. I‘m so lost that I‘m exhausted from trying to find my way.

In #russia in 2012 five members of Pussy Riot went into a church & sang a punk song in protest of the church telling its members to vote for Putin. Three members were arrested & charged with “felony hooliganism motivated by religious hatred,” and this book was written/compiled while they were in prison. Very scary.

I am personally a sucker for a WWII story and this one definitely hit a sweet spot for me. One of my favorite books of all time is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and this felt like home for me. This had elements of time travel and magical realism, and she did really write this seamlessly.

During this trip I realize how big and empty (#wherehaveallthecowboysgone?) the US are. My own country is so small and packed with people and places. So I am used to having 4G internet everywhere. I hadn‘t realized that of course that wouldn‘t be the case in gorgeous empty Oregon 💜But today we‘re staying on a small camping in an even smaller town and there is WiFi! So I can catch up on Litsy and am planning to read all afternoon! #LilithJuly

Velvetfur What, they don't have random WiFi everywhere in the street in America?!?! 😂 It must be nice to have a break from it, lol 👍 Lovely picture too 😊 10h
BarbaraBB @Velvetfur Yes really, it is relaxing to take a break from it - now I notice how addicted I am 🙈 9h

I can see why this is so well loved, but it just didn‘t do it for me. The jumping around from character to character took way too long for me to get used to, and I was bored through the first half of the book. However, it does have some beautiful passages and some great characters, and the ending was gasp-worthy. So, sorry book, it is not ypu, it‘s me 🤷‍♀️

TrishB Lovely pic 👍🏻 I bailed on this one - Loved all her others but this just didn‘t hold my attention. 12h
Jess861 I thought the same thing after finishing this book - just wasn't for me. I felt like it didn't really go anywhere - it was just a very long description of the characters. 12h
Sherri I read this years ago and remember hating it, then realizing so many people loved it. Oh well. I'm happy for those readers and equally happy to have moved on to other books. 11h
MeghanReads I remember feeling the same way years ago. Everyone loved it and I was like maybe I read the wrong book. I needed something more even though I agree that parts of the book were lovely and the writing was great. It just didn‘t make me say let me stay up and read another chapter. 9h
Kalalalatja @TrishB @Jess861 @Sherri @MeghanReads I‘m really glad I‘m not alone in not loving it! 🙌 2h

This book made me feel sad. As I have just moved to a big city and miss the people back where I came from. But I know that I am not going back.

Almost filled my new #TBRcart already, but I still have some room if I reorganise the lower shelves a bit. Lots of choice of genres for this weekends #24in48 #Readathon ranging from true crime to SciFi and everything in between (except soppy romances🙅🏻‍♀️) Can you see anything you‘re either dying to read or have read & would highly recommend? Who‘s joining me this weekend? 🙌
