A slightly premature #recommendsday suggestion, this was the most recent read for my book club and one of my favorites of the year so far. It‘s kind of odd: I found the book to have a lot of flaws (mostly stemming from the fact that I think Makkai diluted the Eighties story by including the 2015 thread and that the two threads resulted in weaker character development), but I was totally engaged while I was reading it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-1/2

This #AudibleOriginal is powerful, I cried. A moving, poignant, at times ugly and terrifying narrative that reveals the true cost of war. The untold suffering that the Greatest Generation faced during World War II and for decades after returning home and how it effected and shaped future generations.

Began this last night before bed, and I have to say, I was sold by the end of the 1st page. I'm really enjoying this look at a dystopian US that is possible in many ways. I have so many questions! Hopefully they are addressed by the end!

This little book packs a serious punch! A collection of short stories like none I‘ve read before, every one gave me things to think about.

The title story is about the monsters we become on Black Friday, barely able to communicate and so focused on deals that we don‘t mind sacrificing weaker folks to get what we want.

It‘s less than 200 pages. Check this one out! #recommendsday

Listening to If We Were Villains because I was hoping the narrator would do justice to this wonderful campus/theater novel (which I read in print form last year). The narrator isn't as versatile as I hoped, but if you like books set in academia starring a group of theater majors in Shakespeare's thrall, I really recommend it.

*whisper* I liked it more than The Secret History. *whisper* 😲

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐-1/2

This #7dayloan from my local library is going to be a bit longer. I didn‘t factor in my #vacay when I took it out & now I‘m hooked. This is a book EVERYONE should read. #recommendsday #parkland #everylittenstbr
