Listen to the author-narrated audiobook if you can! Schofield is a gifted reader and really does her own highly quotable prose justice. Highly recommended.

Sorry I‘ve been MIA lately! I haven‘t really been reading much at all and reading slumps are rare for me. This audiobook might be just the thing to hoist me out of it #sunset #audiowalk

I‘m not really into this on at 150 pages in. The MC is vapid and some of the dialogue seems forced. I‘m hoping it picks up. Does it? #LMPBC #GroupX #TeamCanada

My #bookmarkswap was waiting for me when I got home. It maybe been a tiny bit opened by my monster squad so I don‘t know who to thank for the lovely bookmarks. Middle monster claimed the Reading glasses bookmark (not pictured) for her own - she loves it so much. Much love to ??? (They think it started with a K) for bringing so much joy to the family of readers we‘re raising xo

I read a fictitious account of Stalin‘s daughter - liked it - and yet feel disappointed it wasn‘t truer to the original story. #conflicted FAR preferred Rosemary Sullivan‘s non-fictional Stalin‘s Daughter #applestooranges Photo from https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3496532/Tank-Girl-Josef-Stalin-s-tattoo...

This book is batshit insane and I was there for all of it. I would so reread this tale of an MFA creative writing class gone off the rails. Imagine The Secret History rewritten by Margaret Atwood on some serious hallucinogens. Will reread.

Normal People | Sally Rooney
post image
Pickpick

Wow! This one kept getting darker and darker. I really liked Rooney‘s writing and it worked really well as an #audiobook (I listened to half before the loan expired). I loved the main characters and their heartbreaking miscommunications. My one beef would be that the secondary characters weren‘t as well drawn.

Lanny: A Novel | Max Porter

I love Max Porter‘s writing. He does an excellent job evoking childhood and mixing it up with the archetypal. It was a bit too banana pants for me toward the end and I‘d still highly recommend it.

I‘m new to Lisa Lutz and I liked how the story unfolded from multiple POVs. It was like Heathers for the #metro era and ended strong.

AlaMich Her Spellman File books are a lot of fun, too, and very enjoyable on audio. I haven‘t read her other work, though. 3mo

BookishTrish @LiteraryinLititz My husband found it like that - he bailed about 30 pages in. I scooped it up last night and will finish it by lunchtime. The writing is incredibly strong. 3mo
