I‘ve been doing pretty good at picking interesting audiobooks that I don‘t want to stop listening to.

I really liked the Dry and this one was a good mystery too. I typically only listen when I exercise, but found myself doing other things so I could listen!

I read this because Elizabeth Gilbert spoke at work and she was an interesting speaker, and because I've made fun of this book without reading it and that's not fair. It's better than I expected in some ways, but it deserves a lot of the criticisms. I can't shake the feeling that she uses people at whim.

JulietBooks Don't watch the movie... 3d
KathyWheeler I haven‘t yet read this book because I hated the movie so much. The character, as portrayed in the movie, was a self-indulgent twit. 3d
JulietBooks @KathyWheeler The movie was just awful. 🥵 3d
ferskner @JulietBooks @KathyWheeler I love to watch the movie of a book when I finish so I'll Portobello stick check this out, but I LOATHE Julia Roberts so I'm sure I'll have a great hate-watch. :) 2d

I..... don't get what the fuss is over this novel. Sure, the descriptions of the natural world are gorgeous, but the characters are all stereotypes and the dialog is awful and this story has been told before. I rarely felt any emotional resonance. But I'm also not drawn to this kind of story, so it probably wasn't meant for me anyway.

Hmm. I don‘t know if I would have liked this book more if it hadn‘t been so hyped. There was a lot going on here. A lot of characters and everyone is lying about something or other. It did keep me guessing, but I found the ending really unsatisfying.

MelissaSue81 I did realize when filling out my tracking log that this book counts for #ReadingWomenChallenge #MysteryOrThrillerByWOC
So yay for that! Only 3 more books to complete the #ReadingWomenChallenge!

This was my book about a religion other than my own (I‘m an atheist) for the #ReadingWomenChallenge. I was very interested at first in the early history of the religion, how it started and all of the schisms, and the story of the author‘s family and their history with the church, but I eventually just got bogged down in it all, so it just kind of fizzled for me.

I thought this book was an excellent, concise answer to many of the more controversial points about Appalachia from Hillbilly Elegy. If you‘ve read that one, I highly recommend this one as a follow up! This was also my book about Appalachia for #ReadingWomenChallenge

I‘m not a big play reader. I read this for the #readingwomenchallenge - Read a play prompt

This was an interesting read. It was written in the 80s and it all takes place within the sister‘s kitchen. One sister is accused of shooting her husband, they are trying to discover why their mother committed suicide and how to deal with their relationships.

This short novel was gorgeous. It was only 3.5 hours on audio and left me wanting more of this beautiful, spoken lyrical writing told from the perspective of 15 year old Xiomara writing in her journal about her experiences growing up in conservative household with immigrant parents and stretching her wings to fly. Highly recommend.

Bookzombie @Cinfhen It was kind of a surprise. I like Grann quite a bit and had already read The Lost City of Z and a collection of his articles, but I cried at the end of this one. Also, it‘s a short read. *Disclaimer: I cry easier than most. 2mo
Cinfhen I heard it‘s VERY SHORT but I LOVE his writing!!!! And I‘m a HUGE crier 🙄 2mo

This was a #netgalley arc and I‘m using it for #readingwomenchallenge Children‘s book. I had intended to read at least Raymie Nightingale first, but I hadn‘t gotten around to it. It was still a lovely story. I was surprised at how honest and mature it was. Nothing inappropriate but it didn‘t pander to children at all. And can we talk about this gorgeous cover?

tpixie She is a good author!!! 2mo
