I‘m 100pp in and I cannot recommend this book enough. Especially if you grew up in The Church in the 90s/early aughts.

I‘m a huge fan of Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Pessl‘s first book, and I was surprised to find I loved this one (her third) almost as much.

We do not speak of her second book.

ablachly No one speaks of that second book. 2y

I checked this out from the library a couple years ago but only got halfway through before it was due. Finally bought my own copy.

Three Women | Lisa Taddeo

Pickpick

This book, y‘all. Three days later and I‘m still thinking on it. It made me equal parts sad, enraged, and uncomfortable. A great look into desire and the ways in which women contort and betray themselves to get what they need from men.

Mitch Those three words describe my reaction to the book too! 4 months later and I‘m still mulling it over! 3y
Bibliotekate @Mitch I‘m glad to hear I‘m not the only one! 3y

Picked this up to read a chapter before bed and got halfway through before noticing it was way past bedtime. So far, real good.

After discussing with friends it turns out I'm not the only one who read Eleanor as autistic. Great read.

I greedily devoured this book, which although is about quitting the drink is about so much more (being a woman and being ambitious and searching for meaning and recovering from childhood.) It‘s a revelation and I could not recommend it more.

Social Creature: A Novel | Tara Isabella Burton

I read approximately 50pp of this before quitting it. Maybe I'm aging out of this genre? I have no problem with unlikable characters, but I wasn't even interested in these people or their problems. Anyone read this and like it?

I don‘t think I‘ve ever laughed AND cried so much reading a single book. I‘ve stretched this read out as long as possible, savoring every last essay.
