I liked this one! It‘s a genre-busting, #actionpacked combo of dystopian and Western. I liked the MC, Pity, a lot and the pacing was good.

#popsugar2020 - a Western

runswithscissors007 Since finishing Deadwood I have been looking for a alternate Western! This looks perfect! 1h
OriginalCyn620 @runswithscissors007 I‘ve seen mixed reviews but I liked it! Hope you do too! 50m

I loved the movie and I hope (and know it's likely) that the book is even better.

Graywacke I haven‘t seen the movie, but the book has hung around since I read it. 14h

@TheAromaofBooks Here‘s my list for the #bookspin.

TheAromaofBooks Ooo you have some good ones! I'll be excited to see which one gets drawn. I'll tag you next Sunday with the number!! 😊 19h
TheLudicReader It was hard to choose 20, @TheAromaofBooks ! 18h
TheAromaofBooks Right?? I have piles of books everywhere, plus more that I don't own on various lists to someday check out from the library! 😆 I think for #BookSpin I am going to focus on my pile of most recent arrivals. 18h

I had to renew the tagged book yet again. If I don't finish it this time I think I'm doomed. And I don't get why I can't seem to sit down and finish. I like the book. I just don't seem to be making time for it.

4thhouseontheleft That happens to me sometimes with books I like but have a hard time making time for. 2d
ljuliel I hope you can finish it. I really liked that book a lot. It‘s very good. 2d
Sace @4thhouseontheleft I feel so brain dead after work and I've got a class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I know I'm just making excuses.... 2d

Sace @ljuliel it really is! That's why I'm so frustrated with myself! 2d
ljuliel How long do you get your books for at your library ? Some of ours are a week, some 2 , and some 3. 2d
Sace @ljuliel about 3 weeks. Really what I need to do is not read so many books at once. At least not while school is in session. 2d
ljuliel That might help , I guess. If you have limited time to read for enjoyment , then maybe one at a time would work out better for now. It‘s just so easy to pick out huge piles from the library ! I‘m always choosing way more than I‘ll have time to finish. We get 5 renewals, I think, before time is up. I‘ve never kept a book long enough to find out. 2d
Sace @ljuliel this is the first time in a while I've had to use the renewal option. My mind is just on other things I guess. 2d

True Grit | Charles Portis

I don‘t know if I would call this a good book. It‘s certainly dated, but Mattie‘s voice is distinctive, if not likeable. I probably won‘t ever pick it up again, and you could probably get away with watching the John Wayne movie and having more fun. I do, however, recommend Donna Tartt‘s afterward, which helped me see why some people do really love this book. ⭐️⭐️

paulfrankspencer John Wayne? No no. Better to watch the Coen Brother's movie for the most fun. 5d
Hestapleton @paulfrankspencer I haven‘t seen the Coen brothers one! My dad loves John Wayne so that‘s what I grew up watching. I may have to talk the hubs into a checking out the new one this weekend! 4d
paulfrankspencer @Hestapleton I haven't seen the Wayne version, so I can't say how they compare, but the Coen brothers excell with character and dialogue. Characteristic of their other work. 4d

Hestapleton @paulfrankspencer I really enjoyed NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, so imagine that vibe/work translates well for TRUE GRIT. 4d
paulfrankspencer @Hestapleton yes, in that case you'll love it. Have you read No Country? 4d
Hestapleton @paulfrankspencer It‘s on my list for this year! I adore Cormac McCarthy, so I‘m really really excited for it. 4d
paulfrankspencer @Hestapleton It's excellent. The movie is one of the best film adaptations I've ever seen. Very faithful to the novel. 4d
Hestapleton @paulfrankspencer That‘s amazing to hear! I‘ve got high hopes for it, though I‘m curious to see if I‘ll like it more than Blood Meridian. 4d

I may be a two-time grad school quitter but I am not going to be a #WeeklyForecast quitter. Nor am I going to quit these two books. I've been reading them forever and I need to finish them. Whiskey is due back to the library is three days! 😱

Just finished. The cliffhanger was so strong in #13 that I had to continue reading #14. A LOT of story going on in Depth of Winter and some 'oh, how convenient' moments.

Whiskey When We're Dry | John Larison

A boring #WeeklyForecast without a picture (I'm lazy.) I'm trying to settle into a work and taking-two-classes schedule so I haven't been reading much. I feel like once I have a routine/better idea of how I'll manage time I'll be able to plan my reading more. For now I'm just going to try to finish the tagged book.
