Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover

I have looked at this cover probably 100 times, but it wasn't until today that I really looked at it. I am so embarrassed that I have NEVER noticed the details before! I just thought it was a pencil ✏️😶🤷‍♀️

TheBookAddict Oh my goodness, I also thought it was just a pencil! I‘ll have to go look at my copy. 5h

To be honest, this is probably not a book I would typically pickup. I wasn't excited when my book club assigned it, but, as it so often happens, I found it to be a compelling story that made me truly think about the world around us.

If you ever wonder why some libraries are becoming stricter about their donation policies, feast your eyes on this recent donation. This was found in our drop with about 15 other books in equally bad (or worse) shape. This board book was completely soaked through with whatever that is & something green had grown on Elmo's back 😖 Unfortunately, for every 1 great book we get, we get about 10 that are simply garbage 😒 such a shame!

The Tenth Girl | Sara Faring

Panpan

I selected the ARC from Netgalley bc the description was simply fascinating! Girls at an isolated school where all is not as it seems + creepy folklore should've been a win, but it just failed for me. This is the kind of story where the plot is turned on its head after you've read 80% of the novel &, sadly, the big surprise is just a confusing dud. Pass. Pass. Pass.

I adore both Megan Mullally & Nick Offerman, but after a while, I lost interest in this audiobook. I honestly think it was more of a me problem, just not the right time to really it enjoy it, so I'm having a hard time rating it.

From the author of Bird Box comes Inspection ☠️
A group of 24 boys are raised in a secluded area under the watchful eye of D.A.D.,who works hard to ensure his boys grow up to be the greatest thinkers & creators. How will this be accomplished? Primarily by establishing a world built on lies & removing the greatest distraction from their lives: the opposite sex. Fascinating & creepy!

Scott McClanahan and his works are like the guy in high school your dad demanded you stay away from, but you just can't. He's hilarious, deep, heartbreaking. You cringe, yet you can't turn away because he is everything.

The Mansion: A Novel | Ezekiel Boone
post image
Panpan

Yet another book I had high hopes for, but Boone could NOT deliver & I cannot help wishing I could get the hours I wasted reading this back. I'm not sure I've ever read a novel with so much unnecessary repetition & lack of plot advancement. Roughly 300 pages in things finally started happening, but those events were poorly developed so it was impossible to become emotionally involved or simply entertained. Big fail!

ShyBookOwl Sounds brutal! 3mo

Truth be told, lit fam, I'm just not sure about this one. I enjoyed the thrill ride, but there were some pretty gaping plot holes I couldn't step over and one of the characters, Jay, just wasn't believable to me. *SPOILER ALERT* I mean, a 9 year old girl who's been kidnapped & abused shouldn't be chill & happy-go-lucky. So... I don't know, y'all.

Melmoth | Sarah Perry
post image
Mehso-so

I'm still really processing my reaction to this novel, but what I do know for sure is that I didn't love it and I didn't hate. The language is absolutely beautiful, the concept dark and fascinating, but the creepy and the dramatic do not blend seamlessly in Melmoth, which is disappointing. It was interesting to learn that Perry wrote this while taking opiods to manage pain 🤔 I wonder if that's why it feels a little disjointed at times.

Cool concept, but the book is extremely confusing and there are no answers. So either you dig that kind of thing or you're like me and you really need at least a little clarification. Don't believe me? Checkout positive reviews on Goodreads. Lots of people love it, yet they can't tell you anything beyond the basic plot and classroom terminology of style. 😒🤔

Based on the reviews, you either hate this book or you love it. I. Loved. It! Feeney's novel is full of twists and turns that can be confusing at times, but this girl argues it adds to the thrill of ride.
