I have always considered this to be one of my favorite books and would spend hours reading it up at the lake every summer. I am so concerned with reading new books (and trying to come within a fraction of my families insane book consumption) but maybe I should revisit an old faithful and remind myself why I loved it in the first place. #rip2myyouth #aprella

This is my #firsttime posting about a read along but most certainly not @emilyhaldi s first selfie. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤳🏻#aprella. This fabulous photo was taken in bath the one time home of jane. I like to think of myself as lizzy. Is Emily more of a Lydia or kitty?! @Cinfhen @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi

This book was such a wonderful look into the past 70 years of Irish history. The main character can‘t seem to stop fucking up but you can‘t seem to stop rooting for him. The authors note are the end was also a heartbreak that we can all relate to. Thank you John Boyne for making my london commute a bit more bearable.

Mdargusch Glad you loved it. Can‘t wait to get on that London public transportation in 3 weeks! 2y

I have recently started taking the bus to work and it has been amazing because I get to read everyday! Struggling a bit on this Friday morning with the main protagonist, Elena. I get this is a journey of self discovery but I wish she would stop being so meek. Anyone else agree?

Mdargusch Nice photo! Unfortunately I haven‘t read this yet. Is this your book club pick? 2y
Reviewsbylola I think @emilyhaldi read one of her books before. I‘ve heard this series is a bit slow. 2y

AnnieD @reviewsbylola I have read and the second book in the series. They are a bit slow but once you get into its very good. It‘s just a slow journey of a very interesting friendship 2y
emilyhaldi I am going to start this series someday! I already have a couple of the books 👍🏻 2y
Lesliereads I, too, get frustrated with Elena‘s inability to fully own her talents...but maybe that‘s a result of her/their early life? 2y

Fellow littens - do you struggle with your book clubs? Part of the group is full of great conversation and even better recommendations- like the above, such a good read. I don't think I would have stuck with it if it wasn't for the high praise from my friend and I am so glad I did. But my club has so many rules and the self elected leader is not inclusive of new people. I love having a book club but I don't think I can stick it out.

emilyhaldi Your book club leader sounds terrible 😜 2y
MidnightBookGirl I run 2 book clubs and only the one for the bookstore has any rules (the bookstore one requires purchase of the book from us, but that's the only rule). Maybe check out Meetup.com for a local book club or see if your local library has one. Life is too short for bad book clubs! 2y
DivineDiana I agree with @MidnightBookGirl ! I belong to one at a local library and it is so rewarding! 2y

Natasha.C.Barnes Yeah that sounds rough--get out of there! I can't even imagine what all these rules could possibly be! Just put your feelers out there, maybe you can find another or start one! 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Start a rival book club with the nicest people from current book club ✨✨✨ 2y
CouronneDhiver Litsy has a few postal book clubs around... I'm sure we can do better than that! 🤓 2y
moranadatter That's rough. I used to struggle with mine, but the people who hated everything and the ones who never read the books dropped out when we reorganized earlier this year. 2y
AnnieD Thanks guys! Great suggestions! I think a rival book club might be in order! 😊 2y
Reviewsbylola Holy shit, two Litsy posts in one day?!? There is an actual rule that no new people are allowed? It sounds ridiculous. 2y
MrBook @BookBabe and I run a few, 2 of which are in NYC. Ours are on Meetup. No rules really, just RSVP or un-RSVP if you can't make it. 2y
BookBabe Gosh! What rules? Is one of them "No fun allowed"? I agree with @MidnightBookGirl — book clubs should be fun and something to look forward to! ?? 2y
Mdargusch Sorry I️ missed your posts. Book club with rules? 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼now post some more. How about a Shelfie? 2y

Mehso-so

It was an interesting subject but I felt like the author gave way too many details that were redundant or confusing. Also I get it - the amazon is terrifying! Was an almost DNF for me. Did anyone else struggle?!

Mdargusch Yes, I struggled with the abundant information, however, I thought the story was interesting. 2y
Reviewsbylola So glad you finally finished this. I'm skipping it. You convinced me. Mom had a similar suggestion that she said was better 2y

Lesson learned - don't pick up books next to the B&N checkout counter. I love historical fiction and am fascinated with Empress Sisi but I can honestly say that I enjoyed reading her Wikipedia page more than this book. I had to check that it wasn't YA because the way it is written assumes the reader can't be older than 13. Next time I am taking @Reviewsbylola advice on a book pick!

Reviewsbylola Always listen to your older sister. 👊🏻 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag I'm fascinated by Sissi too! I was late night channel surfing once and found the movie (much romantised but lovely) based on her courtship/marriage (I went on to watch the sequels and then base a library school project on her) have you seen it? 3y
tracyrowanreads I still haven't found anything fictional about her that's as good as historical accounts. A shame really. 3y
