In that first floor bay, of this charming little bookshop (and home of Propolis imprint) - legend has it Margaret Atwood sat and finished the tagged book. It‘s now the fiction section of the shop - so I went in and soaked up the vibes!

MrBook Very cool! I enjoyed that book. 6h
Soubhiville What a cute shop. 5h

Cinfhen I love this cover and I‘m always curious about this book. I‘m just not a fan of short story collections 🤨 2d
Emilymdxn I adore this book! The story Red Dirt Witch is potentially one of my all time fave short stories! 2d

2/5⭐

This book started out so good, but then it only went downhill. There was no plot and the changing POVs didn't make it any easier. This book had such a promising premise, only the execution really lacked in my opinion. It left me disappointed and unsatisfied

This was a very different dystopian world than Atwood created with The Handmaid‘s Tale, but still so good. I can‘t wait to read the rest of the trilogy - this got me through a full day of #audiocleaning yesterday as well as some #audiocrochet

Mitch Ive read the first one too - and loved it, must get back to that world soon. PS - love the crochet... that's a skill that has sadly passed me by! 2d
SamAnne I love this trilogy! Perhaps my favorite is the 2nd in the series, After the Flood. All three gave me very disturbing dreams though. There has been a rumored HBO series based on the trilogy. 2d
sprainedbrain I adore this trilogy! Just finished it this summer. ❤️ 2d
rwmg @SamAnne Yes, the middle one was my favourite too. 2d
SamAnne And there would be the mornings listening to NPR: “Scientists have perfected growing human livers in pigs.“ NOOOOOOOO! Or, “Scientists have made strides in growing chicken meat in the lab.“ Noooooo! I loved the trilogy because Atwood does her research and she incorporated so much “on-the-cusp“ technology in the novels, we could hear about it on NPR while reading the book.

Only 100 pages left to go and I'm still no clearer on where this story is going, but I'm enjoying the trip. Meanwhile the Ginge isn't too impressed 😾 #catsoflitsy #currentlyreading

GingerPicks @cherinium Thank you! She's a huge bookworm 😻 3d

Exhilarating and deeply unsettling; this book blew my mind for a multitude of reasons. I wish I could have read this in college, I actually would have enjoyed discussing it. Not without flaws, but I found it remarkable and will be thinking about it for a while. A 5-star read⚡️

Librariana Agreed, agreed! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👍🏼 I was one of two people in my book club who really enjoyed it. It definitely would've been a powerful one to read in college. I'm sure it would've made quite an impression. 3d
