The Secret History | Donna Tartt
post image

“I do not now nor did I ever have anything in common with any of them, nothing except a knowledge of Greek and the year of my life I spent in their company. And if love is a thing held in common, I suppose we had that in common, too, though I realize that might sound odd in light of the story I am about to tell.” #nothingincommon #septemberdanes

I didn't stage this. I found this arrangement on a shelf at a Mexican restaurant. 😂 #nothingincommon although admittedly there is some pretty unsavory stuff in the Old Testament. 😂 #Septemberdanes @Cinfhen @Kalalalatja

Celine: A novel | Peter Heller
post image

Heller‘s prose had serious potential but the never ending storylines and rambling tangents all seem to have #nothingincommon with one another or the major plot line. Add in a disastrously constructed mystery, a female MC very poorly written by a man, and some far-fetched situations (an old lady with emphysema scaring off a drunk, rowdy biker gang 🙄), and you have yourself this failure of a novel.

Leftcoastzen Sounds like a train wreck. 4y
mrsh62010 Haha 4y
JamieArc I‘ve seen other reviews similar to yours. So disappointing (that it‘s bad). This book really piqued my interest but after seeing so many negative reviews, no time to give it a shot. 4y

Billypar But on the plus side....such an entertaining Litsy review 😃 4y
BarbaraBB Great review. Clearly I won‘t read it 😉 4y
Cinfhen This book sounds terrible, I think Steph liked it?!?!! I know your mom gave it a Pan too!!! 4y
Kalalalatja Yeah, I‘m taking a hard pass on this! 4y
Susannah I'm sorry it was so disappointing. I read his book, The Painter, a couple of years ago in which every woman was ga-ga about the male MC. I cannot imagine what Heller would do with a female MC. Just ... no. 😖 (edited) 4y
Mdargusch I definitely panned it @Cinfhen since I skimmed 1/3 of it. Perfect for this prompt! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 4y
Reviewsbylola I definitely didn‘t hate it (I think I gave it three stars) but now I‘m starting to think maybe I went too easy on it. 😂 @Cinfhen 4y
Cinfhen It's ok @Reviewsbylola YOU are just an extremely GENEROUS person 😘but honestly this book sounds TERRIBLE @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi 4y
Mdargusch I kind of wish you would read it @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Kalalalatja so you can join us on the #hatetrain 4y
BarbaraBB @Mdargusch Haha, I know that feeling but I still think I‘ll pass 😉😘 4y
Cinfhen I'm already #OnBoard the #HateTrain @Mdargusch I'm trusting you & @emilyhaldi 4y

Human Acts | Han Kang
post image

Me and the characters in this book have #nothingincommon but I felt connected to them on such a deep level. Han Kang is a master in exposing the common humanity that binds us all ❤️ 100% recommended. It's a tough read but very interesting, both in content and form!

#SeptemberDanes @Kalalalatja @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Love your thoughts and interpretation for this prompt 😊🤓 4y
Kalalalatja Yes, wonderful take on the prompt! And I agree, the book is so good 👌 4y

#SeptemberDanes I‘m playing catch-up 😉Tagged book is a real heartbreaker ~ Lynnie a young white girl, living in a home for the “feebleminded” falls in love with Homan , an African American man, who “works” at the Institution.
Homan is deaf and also considered “dim witted” and the authorities believe these two have #NothingInCommon & should be separated 😪When Lynnie discovers she‘s #pregnant they run away, hoping to raise their child together.

CoffeeAndABook Wow! That does sound like a 💔er. But interesting. So - the holiday with all it‘s undoubtedly glorious cooking & duties is over & you‘re free to read & roam Littenland again??? 4y
Reagan That book was so sweet! 4y
Centique How was All The Food?!!!! 😁👍😂 #livingvicariouslythroughCindy 4y

BarbaraBB There you are! I hope the results of your cooking were sayisfying and that you had a wonderful time eating and drinking and being together 💜 4y
Cinfhen Yes @CoffeeAndABook holiday is over BUT I‘m still feeling overwhelmed 😝now it‘s the NEVER ENDING laundry that begins😫😫😫plus my phone is finished....it fell in a pot of sudsy water on Sunday & after 3 days of sitting in rice it‘s still dead 😥 BUT the flip side is, I spent 3 uninterrupted glorious days with my kids and my other guests and we definitely laughed, dined, drank and created new memories @BarbaraBB @Centique so it‘s all good 😘😘😘 4y
Centique @Cinfhen fabulous about the great family times 😊 not so fab about the laundry and the phone 😢😢 4y
Kalalalatja Yay, you are back, we missed you! Although, it sounds like you have had a wonderful time with family and friends ❤️❤️ sucks about the laundry and your phone, though 👎 4y
Kalalalatja Also, that book sounds 💔💔💔 4y

Some of these books have #NothingInCommon other than being crammed onto my shelves. There's a vegan cook book, a book about the phases of the moon, fantasy next to a bloody thriller, a romance in German, a notebook full of scenes for a novel I've wanted to write, books on linguistics and English Grammar, ...

@Cinfhen @Kalalalatja

Cinfhen Well to me, it ALL looks LOVELY 😊 4y
Kalalalatja I agree with @Cinfhen 😍 4y

Almost 3,000 people lost their lives on this day in 2001. They had #nothingincommon except that they are remembered as victims of one of the greatest tragedies we have ever known. This is the story of one of them.

Welles Crowther was only 24 years old when he lost his life on 9/11/01. TRB tells the story of his life and how it led him to the sacrifices he made that day as he put aside his own safety to save the lives of others. #septemberdanes

Kalalalatja 💔💔💔 4y

Cinfhen 💔💔thanks for this post 🙌🏼 4y

#SeptemberDanes #day11 #NothingInCommon There‘s no odder pair than Jenks, the technician on the Wayfarer & Lovelace, the ships AI. But fall in love they did and with a plan in place to move the AI into a cyborg body, they have everything dissolve into tragedy when an attack on the ship forces a reboot of everything Lovelace is. Their love ends with “Lovey” being smuggled off the Wayfarer by Pepper & poor Jenks left behind with a broken heart💔

Kalalalatja Love this book ❤️ 4y
Cinfhen I tried this book but it wasn't jiving with me...like your take on this prompt 👽 4y
