Blurb: “A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a #Serial—like #podcast following the clues she's left behind... When Mattie is found dead, Sadie's entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister's killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him...”
Sadie is here! Can't wait to check this new #YA #thriller out. You guys, Stephanie Perkins is blurbing it as "an electrifying, high-stakes road trip--@ gripping thriller with a true-crime podcast edge". I don't know about you but I LOVE #serial so here's hoping this scratches that itch!
Thanks @WednesdayBooksYA @bookbrag for the #arc copy!
This was 20 issues on #serial, which is a great length imo. A charming story, it‘s about Vivian Lane, a young woman who decides to start a new life with some other women running a boardinghouse out west. It‘s early 1900s, so Vivian‘s decision is not taken lightly, as her parents believe a woman should not be highly educated, and that a good marriage is the ultimate goal. I really enjoyed the characters in this one and watching Vivian grow.
713 pages into Middlemarch, whew! I certainly like it more than I initially did, but I can‘t say that I love it. Maybe a study of provincial life just isn‘t my cup of tea 🍵, but the beautiful characterizations and thoughtful dialog are going a long way towards my understanding of why this book is so well-loved. #litsyclassics #serial #serialreader
Finished this on the #Serial app. I started it because it was the campus-wide reading selection where I work and because I wanted to read it alongside Ahmed Saadawi‘s Frankenstein in Baghdad. Glad I read them close together, but don‘t read Saadawi expecting his to be a retelling. It‘s simply not. Someone snuck that into the marketing for Saadawi‘s book and it has unfortunately stuck. Anyway, glad to have finally read this as well!
I love #Serial! It is helping me to finally read classics that I have been meaning to read forever. I liked more than loved this story of a bright, beautiful woman with a mysterious past. It sagged a bit, especially in the middle, but I cared enough about the characters to stick with it and I‘m glad that I did.
