Affinity | Sarah Waters
post image

Another extraordinary novel from Sarah Waters. I can't believe I'm only just now discovering these books. I'm amazed by her range and her ability to conjure another era in such an all-absorbing, spellbinding way. This one is an absolutely perfect Gothic mystery/tragedy/ghost story, set in a Victorian-era women's prison. If you read Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca and felt like you'd never read anything as good again--THIS!!!!

JamieArc I‘m nearing the end of Fingersmith, also my first Sarah Waters, and am reading wide-eyed with the unraveling of the story - it‘s so good! 1mo

The Paying Guests | Sarah Waters

$1.99 ebook today!
Hey, if you love the idea of deeply convincing historical fiction about the lives of ordinary British women just after WWI, which veers slowly into a gorgeous lesbian romance, and (I haven‘t reached this part yet, but according to the reviews) then transforms into a murder mystery—well, you will adore this magnificent novel as much as I do. I‘m only halfway through, so don‘t tell me how it ends!

Carolyn11215 I love Sarah Waters‘ books! Fingersmith one of my all time faves! 2mo
scowler1 This might be my favorite. Brilliant author. 2mo

Stranger Diaries | Elly Griffiths

You know those books you love so much that throughout the day you think, "I can't wait to crawl back in bed and read that book some more"--well, this is one of those books. It's a creepy British murder mystery with Victorian gothic literature as its reference point, a spooky attic and even spookier abandoned factory--really, it's just exactly the book you want to be reading in front of the fire on a dark and stormy night. Go do that right now!

I adored this book! I generally don‘t like novels that weave between a historical story and a modern day researcher/historian trying to figure her own life out as informed by this other past life (how is this a genre, much less one I know well enough to have an opinion about) but actually this is a memoir and a lovely depiction of a real person grappling with a subject she‘s trying to write about and understand—and I do relate to that! Lovely book

I have only just discovered Nina Stibbe and I am tearing through all her books as fast as I can. Tthis is the first, and it's fantastic. If you don't think you'd like to read a collection of letters from a young London nanny to her sister--well, read it anyway. It's sharp, funny, brilliant, British, and did I mention that she's the nanny of the editor of the London Review of Books and Alan Bennett lives across the street?

How is it possible that I missed this book when it came out? This is an absolutely gorgeous, sensual, beautifully written novel about MFK Fisher's affair with her husband's best friend. Food, sex, glamorous travel, and the real-life story of a woman writer I knew little about...what's not to like?

Did I mention that the writing is GORGEOUS? I read that the author spent ten years researching and writing it, and I believe it.

Tonton Oh wow! I love MFK Fisher, she is such a brilliant stylist. Looking forward to reading this now😎 6mo

Hi, would you like to read a laugh-out-loud funny, lighthearted, smart, sassy, somewhat dark and weird and fantastical novel that will take you completely away from current events and make you feel like you‘re eating birthday cake all day, only now somehow birthday cake is good for you?

That‘s this novel. Also, I would like somebody to write an essay about how THE SISTERS BROTHERS is a Coen brothers movie and this one is a Wes Anderson movie.

Do you want to read a novel about two sisters living in a mouldering English castle under difficult circumstances, one of whom is a writer?

Mr Bridge | Evan S. Connell
Pickpick

Following Mrs. Bridge...the sequel (told from the husband‘s POV) is considerably darker and weirder. He‘s just as cloistered in white suburbia as his wife, just as emotionally stifled, but considerably more prejudiced. When I think about the time period when this was written, I can see what a pointed critique of the country club set it really was. Well worth reading—quick and engrossing—read with a friend, because you will want to talk about it!

Boxtersushi I enjoyed them both - I think it was in the wake of the movie featuring Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward as the Bridges. 14mo

I can't say that I loved this book, but I do think it was masterful. There were moments in it that were heartbreaking and tender and sad and so spot-on. But it was also disjointed and very deliberately NOT so many things: not particularly descriptive, not complete (meaning, lots of questions left unanswered, lots of holes in the narrative)--nonetheless, all of this was very expertly done and I know I‘ll keep thinking about it…

Lola I do think this one (although I haven‘t read it yet...) fills in at least some of those holes 1y

Ever pick up a book and absolutely love it and then you go look at what the critics had to say and find out that nobody really liked it but you? Seriously, this book is amazing. It‘s short and funny and weird and told almost entirely in absolutely spectacular dialogue. I didn‘t even know McMurtry got bad reviews, but this one really did not get a lot of love. I‘m mystified.

I went to see Gary speak at @Powells and he was wonderful—imagine the Anne Lamott of woodworkers, and that‘s him. I couldn‘t get my hands on the book because it sold out so quickly, but dig this quote: “Something happens when you work with your hands: YOU GET A GRIP.” Yes! (Apparently he‘s Nick Offerman‘s favorite woodworker.) Oh, and I got in some drawing practice.

minkyb What a wonderful description - the Anne Lamott of woodworking - a perfect gift for my husband. Thank you! (edited) 1y

Just joined a book club for the first time in my life and this is our first book. The author‘s coming to @Powells on Monday night, so I have an extra incentive to dig in!

hgrimes I just checked this out of the library! It‘s next up on my TBR list. 1y
[DELETED] 3803335244 One of my favorite books! It‘s wonderful 1y
CatGV I liked going at a book club! However, their reading tastes were so different from mine... I read YA, Fantasy, and LGBTQ mostly. They read adult books in totally different genres (especially contemporary) in French. While I adore my first language, I read a lot more in English. Nevertheless, I wish you the best of times because it IS fun! :D 1y

LOOK at this novel I found at Third Place Books! A Scandinavian novel about a woman in a nursing home who goes on a crime spree. If it's half as good as the cover, I'm in for a treat. And there are two more!

Texreader Looking forward to this review!! 2y

AmyStewart @Gissy You know...my interest faded. Great premise but didn‘t quite hold me. Might be the translation 1y
