Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I enjoyed this one 💜🖤 2w
BkClubCare @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks - thank you. I am not a good reader of thriller setups like these. I have time to read this weekend and I hope to make a big dent. Wish me luck 🍀 2w
BkClubCare @dabbe - he‘s becoming such a lovebug! 2w

BkClubCare It is possible, very possible, that ToB discussions will show me how stupid and impatient I am when it comes to great literature 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 2mo
SamAnne 😂😂😂. More geese! More geese! I will be skipping this read. Thank you for the review. 2mo

BkClubCare @SamAnne - eeek! I always get nervous when people say they‘ll skip a book — But what if it would be perfect FOR YOU?! 🤣 I am at that point in the TOB list that I have too many books to read. #sigh And no motivation to give them “proper due” (proper DO?!) 2mo
Larkken #thoughtitwouldhavemoregeese sums up my general ambivalence about this year‘s list, tbh. @BkClubCare I‘ve been much more impatient with the books on this years list than previous years, and it‘s surprising me! 2mo
SamAnne @BkClubCare hah! My TBR is plenty big as it is. 2mo
Chelsea.Poole lol!! Where‘s the goose emoji?? 🦆 close enough 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo
BkClubCare @Chelsea.Poole LOL - I almost emoji-ed the 🦆 but thought I might be ridiculed 🤣 2mo

Singout Wow. Thanks for sharing this. 3mo
dabbe The words you provided were more than enough. #sigh 3mo
CarolynM Yep, and the worst part is it continues to make it near impossible for drug use to be treated as a health issue instead of a criminal issue to this day. 3mo

Demon Copperhead: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver
post image

Still sharing my week with Demon. I‘ve been reading this book a little slowly as I want to savor the words & fully immerse myself in Demon‘s world. I felt similarly when I read The PoisonWood Bible. I‘ve also been experimenting with brewing my own tea from ingredients in my fridge & cupboard. 😁This pot was clementines, lemon, Cranberries, mint, cinnamon sticks and apple.

AllDebooks I've been doing the same, completely absorbed in Demon's world. Your tea sounds delicious 😊 3mo
AvidReader25 I can‘t wait to read this one! 3mo
Chelsea.Poole Yes to the savoring with this one! Also your tea sounds great 😊 3mo

Cinfhen My tea is really delightful and this book is just enveloping me @AllDebooks @AvidReader25 @Chelsea.Poole 3mo
LeeRHarry Tea sounds delicious! Have a feeling I‘ll be buying the book at the airport and reading it on the plane home 😊 seeing as it‘s around a 30hr flight incl. stopovers I should get a bit read 😄 3mo
Cinfhen Safe travels @LeeRHarry iDemon should make a great flight companion - it‘s just a bit heavy 😉 3mo
sarahbarnes Love that tea strategy - and the teacup! 3mo
TrishB That tea sounds like it will go wonderfully 😁 3mo
AvidReader25 @BkClubCare what if we did this one for our second buddy read this year? I‘ve heard nothing but great things! Sounds like one that would be great to be able to discuss together. 3mo
squirrelbrain It‘s so good isn‘t it?! And you‘re right…it‘s not a book to rush. 3mo
Deblovestoread I‘ve been seeing all the love so decided I‘d jump onboard. Can‘t find a copy locally in either of our two Indy bookstores or Target. Husband is checking Costco this am. Amazon can‘t deliver until late next week. I think the word is out how good this book is… 3mo
Megabooks Perfect for a winter day! 💕💕 3mo
BarbaraBB Looking so peaceful ❤️❤️ 3mo
Cinfhen Thanks @sarahbarnes @TrishB @Megabooks @BarbaraBB Mug was from the original #MugLove swap from the lovely @Kalalalatja (who I miss terribly) but I think of her often 💖 I spent most of today with this book - really wonderful @Deblovestoread I‘d send you my copy but it could take weeks!!! 3mo
Cinfhen 💯 buddy-read @AvidReader25 and @BkClubCare I think you‘d find LOTS to discuss and share💕 3mo
Cinfhen I‘m happy I focused on print @squirrelbrain it worked better for me that way but I did find two typos!!! 🙃 3mo
BkClubCare @Cinfhen @AvidReader25 - yes, yes…. And yet, this book intimidates me like none other. I do not want to commit to this in the near further and do not want to hold you back Melissa - from reading it now if you want to. #sigh 3mo
AvidReader25 @BkClubCare Ha, I totally get that! Let‘s stick with Once and Future King. Maybe we think about the new King: Fairy Tale? 3mo
BkClubCare @AvidReader25 - I am always up for a King-along 😆 3mo

As he did in Delicious Foods, which I loved, Hannaham takes a very dark situation, a trans woman wrongly convicted and held in a men‘s prison for 21 years, and gives it humanity and even humor. #toblonglist FTW again!

Carlotta has just been released on parole, and we follow her first days in the free world as she suddenly navigates a world of new technologies and tries to fulfill her parole conditions while dealing with the trauma of her stay.

Cinfhen Excellent review!!! I think this might be my favorite from the list ❣️ 4mo
Suet624 Can‘t wait to find this one!! 4mo

Linear That title tho 🤣 4mo
BarbaraBB Five stars for you too? 4mo
sarahbarnes So glad you liked it!! I also really liked Delicious Foods. (edited) 4mo
RebelReader My library has it! Hold placed! 4mo
squirrelbrain I‘ve asked hubby to buy me this for Christmas! 4mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain oh I hope he does! 4mo
Megabooks @RebelReader yay! Enjoy! 4mo
Megabooks @sarahbarnes such a fantastic book. I liked DF more, but both are excellent! 4mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB DF blew my mind and was 5⭐️. This is a solid 4.25⭐️. Still a high rating from me and a great book! 4mo
Megabooks @Linear it‘s fantastic! She has such a distinctive voice as a character. 4mo
Megabooks @Suet624 I‘m excited for you to read it! 4mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen it‘s an outstanding book and audiobook! 4mo
Megabooks Sorry I missed tagging you on this @Hooked_on_books 4mo
Megabooks Missed you too @Ruthiella I was just out of it this morning. I only got 2.5 hours sleep so maybe that‘s it. 🥱 4mo
Ruthiella No problem! 😉 I definitely want to give this one a go. 4mo
Hooked_on_books I‘m very excited for this one. I just have to figure out what format to read it in. 4mo
BkClubCare @Hooked_on_books - yes! That is often my struggle, but usually I select “first available” (and then get bummed when I find out the audio is amazing. #sigh) SO hard to track but I hope to when the short list is announced. 4mo
Megabooks @Ruthiella for sure! I‘d say this one is a must-read! 4mo
Megabooks @Hooked_on_books I will say the audiobook is awesome if you can get ahold of it! 4mo
Megabooks @BkClubCare like I said to Holly, if you want to read this, it would be good in either format, but I just loved the narration. And yes, I‘ve had that problem of choosing the less good format too. I got this from the longlist on audio and it didn‘t work for me. 4mo
BkClubCare @Megabooks - Noted. And, thank you 📚 4mo
Hooked_on_books Good to know—I think I‘ll do just that! 🎧 4mo

The Bone Shard Emperor | Andrea Stewart
post image

December is always a busy month for me at work, so I‘m pleased I managed to read this much. Especially considering two of these were over 600 page chunksters.

Best of the month was The Bone Shard Emperor. I also loved Making Money and Bewilderment.

BkClubCare Interesting mix! I have read Washington Black and tried to rec Dictionary of Lost Words to my bookclub. 1y
Soubhiville @BkClubCare I read Lost Words for bookclub. Interestingly, I really liked it but I was the only one of 6 or 7 of us to give it a high review. 1y
BkClubCare @Soubhiville - LOL! Funnily enough, I expect the same response with my club. They do not get my reading tastes. #sigh 1y
Andrew65 A great month of reading 👏👏👏 1y

I admit that the novel grew on me the longer I stuck with it, but personally I felt it was a lot of effort for the payoff.

Ella (“She” in Spanish) has a complicated relationship with her family back in the unnamed (but probably Chile) country of her past while in her current country of residence (we only know it is “north”) she procrastinates in writing her doctoral thesis and wonders about her boyfriend El (“He” in Spanish). #ToB #Tob2022

squirrelbrain I had to bail on this one, due to the subject matter, so I‘m rather pleased you didn‘t love it! 😬 1y
Cinfhen Like the mug ♥️Haven‘t gotten to this one yet 1y
BkClubCare I have been stuck on page 25 and everyday, I calculate how many pages I need to read each day to finish this month. #sigh (edited) 1y

Cinfhen That‘s not a good sign @BkClubCare 1y
thebluestocking Hmm…I don‘t think I‘ll make this one a priority. 1y
Ruthiella @squirrelbrain You made a wise decision. It doesn‘t get any cheerier later in the book. 1y
Ruthiella @Cinfhen Thanks! It‘s my reading mug. 😂 1y
Ruthiella @BkClubCare Yeah, I hear you. I had to power through. 1y
Ruthiella @thebluestocking I think my biggest problem with it was the way it was told in snippets, like a Jenny Offhill book. I need more narrative to hold onto. 1y
