Lost and Wanted: A Novel | Nell Freudenberger

About halfway through and don‘t know how I feel about it. It seems a bit pointless... though I am enjoying the flashbacks about Harvard College in the late 1980s (when I studied there too).

hermyknee Oh, this was my #botm pick this month (if I ever have time to get to it!) I read that it was kind of slow and strange and nonlinear, I believe? 1d

The 13th book in the #MrsMurphy mystery series is a dud. So do yourself a favor, skip number 3 (Murder in Monticello) and also this one. Too much about wine in Virginia, too little mystery, and even the talking animals can‘t save it. Plus it takes forever for the mystery actually to start. Ugh. Hope the next one picks up again.

KathyWheeler I hated this one so much! Everything you said is absolutely right plus the solution to the mystery was so obvious that it made Harry look stupid not to see it right away. (edited) 3d

I highly recommend the audiobook, as the two narrators bring to life the satirical dialogue between the oh-so-helpful “author” and the frazzled modern mom who just can‘t wrap her head around the childrearing tips of Victorian-era “experts.” I actually found this more entertaining than Unmentionable.

Swe_Eva I just gave a copy of this book to a coworker who‘s going on maternity leave in two weeks. It was a big hit! 5d

I would have bet this quirky story about a time-traveling librarian would be right up my alley, but it‘s just silly. Maybe it‘s a couple of revisions away from comic perfection, but as it stands, it‘s just too farcical for my taste. I made it halfway through, but I just do not care about Shona‘s mission at all. Disappointed. Moving on.

I devoured this psychological thriller about a husband accused of raping one of his colleagues, and a wife with secrets of her own. My one criticism: this book either had a chapter too many or one chapter too few... the ending was way too abrupt. Still, well worth a read. #MiaCat #CatsofLitsy

Murder at Monticello | Rita Mae Brown
post image
Bailedbailed

Made it until chapter 31 and couldn‘t handle it any more. It‘s too little mystery, too little talking cats, and too much cringe-worthy speculation about Sally Hemings, slavery at Monticello, and race relations (or lack thereof). No thank you. Moving on to number 4 in the series and hoping the #MrsMurphy series gets back on track.

RadicalReader what‘s been your all time favorite read? (edited) 2w
BookishMarginalia @radicalreader In general? My most beloved reads are probably the Harry Potter series, Pride and Prejudice, and Anne of Green Gables. I can reread them still and enjoy them thoroughly. 2w

Very interesting book about book collectors, sellers, and collections, mostly centered around surviving Gutenberg Bible number 45 (the so-called “lost” Gutenberg, which was actually never lost, so the title 👎🏼). Despite the misleading title, bibliophiles will love this book. Recommended! (I listened to the audiobook).

LeahBergen I recently bought this, too. 👍🏻 2w

This was a quick, thoughtful (though slightly repetitive) read about how the author learned to move on after her sister‘s death by reading a book a day and writing a daily review for an entire year. Part family memoir, meditation on grief, blog on books, and exhortation to be kind and to read, it‘s worth reading.

Another fun read. Although I found the pace slower —and the characters less quirky— than the Punjabi Widows, I enjoyed following the three Shergill sisters in their quest to fulfill their mom‘s last request: a pilgrimage to India.
