Bailedbailed

This might be an #unpopularopinion but I DNF‘d The Priory of the Orange Tree. I got 40% of the way through the 900+ page book and still had no idea what the titular organization even was. Plus I really didn‘t have much connection to the main characters. Life is too short to stick with a book I don‘t enjoy, so I bailed.

Bookwormjillk I‘m about to bail on this too 2d
BridgetteM Glad I‘m not the only one who struggled with this one, @Bookwormjillk. I really wanted to like it, too. 2d
Maude I bailed too, I was having a hard time making myself even pick it up and read it, I don't know exactly why 🤔 2d
BridgetteM @Maude Me too! I knew it was time to qui when I found myself making excuses not to read it. 2d

After the Flood | Kassandra Montag
post image
Pickpick

I was immersed in the flooded post-apocalyptic world of After the Flood. Although it deals with such weighty themes as grief and motherhood set against the backdrop of the fall of civilization, it still manages to be hopeful. It‘s a real page-turner. 5 ⭐️‘s from me. Thank you for the ARC, @WilliamMorrowBooks

AmyG I loved this book....and was surprised that I did. I don‘t read many post-apocalyptic books. 2w
BridgetteM @AmyG Glad you enjoyed it, too! It definitely stands out among its peers. 2w

11.22.63 | Stephen King

I am a few hours into my first Stephen King novel, 11.22.63. Thank you to @Samplergal and @Readage for the recommendation. I‘m loving it so far! It seems to be just what I needed to get through the drudgery at work right now.

Samplergal I loved it. I used to love Stephen King way back and then he got waaaaay off track with It. Imho. This was the first one since It I read. ❤️ glad you are liking it. 3w
BridgetteM @Samplergal The audiobook narrator is fantastic. His Maine accent is spot on! 3w

Whisper Network: A Novel | Chandler Baker

I think this might be a love it or hate it book. Gotta say I was not liking it until the end. The chapters were choppy and seemed more like snippets. However, the end was pretty good, so it gets a pick from me.

I have a confession: I‘ve never read a Stephen King novel. Never. It‘s time that I remedy that, but I don‘t know where to start. Comment with which book you think I should read first, and the Stephen King novel with the most votes will be the next book I start. 😀

TrishB I‘d have to know what you liked first, horror, fantasy, thriller , time travel? 4w
madamereadsalot1 Misery!!!! Followed by Desperation. 4w
BridgetteM @TrishB All of the above! Time travel and fantasy definitely high on the list, but I‘m looking to get out of my comfort zone. (edited) 4w

Things You Save in a Fire | Katherine Center
post image

I got to see Katherine Center tonight at my local indie bookstore, Midtown Reader. It was so much fun to listen to her speak. She is a NY Times bestselling author with a movie adaptation starring Josh Duhamel in the works, but she was so kind and relatable. Her new book, Things You Save in a Fire, came out last week. I highly recommend it. Giveaway coming up soon, so stay tuned!

Saga, Vol. 1 | Brian K. Vaughan

I admit I was not looking forward to the #comicorgraphicnovel prompt for #booked2019. Saga blew me away! It‘s so good that I stayed up way past my bedtime so that I could finish the first four volumes in one day. I might be hooked on graphic novels now.

Cinfhen So glad u enjoyed this prompt!! I‘ve tried so many times to read comics/ GN but I just can‘t get into them 😩 1mo
BridgetteM @cinfhen I hear you! I have avoided graphic novels like the plague. This was my first foray. 1mo
Cinfhen Yay!!! I haven‘t tried Saga #MaybeOneDay 1mo

Exbrarian Saga and Paper Girls are solid choices for book readers who are reluctant to try Graphic Novels. 1mo
KathyWheeler I avoided graphic novels figuring I was far too old from them. Then, when I was 50, my much younger brother introduced me to Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman, which I loved. I found Saga and Joe Hill‘s Locke & Key, both of which are fantastic, by myself. Saga blows me away. In every issue. 1mo
KathyWheeler @Exbrarian Yes! I forgot about Paper Girls; it‘s great too. 1mo
BridgetteM @Exbrarian Thanks for the recommendation! Paper girls looks awesome. 1mo

Three Women | Lisa Taddeo

Pickpick

Quite simply, this book is incredible. It‘s certain to be one of my favorites of the year. The author explores female desire by telling the stories of three women: Maggie, Lina, and Sloane. These stories could have come from your friends, neighbors, coworkers. They are heartbreaking and captivating all at once. Suffused with pathos, this is not one to miss!

Got this a while back in the Prime Book Box for my two year old. It‘s a hit! He asks me to read it to him at least 3 times a day. It‘s a cute little board book about the day-to-day tasks of a dump truck and its driver, Hard Hat Pete. It‘s great for toddlers who are into trucks and construction.

Wicked Fox took me on YA Fantasy ride through Seoul. It follows Gu Miyoung, a gumiho (nine-tailed Fox), and Jihoon, a teenage boy. Gumiho must kill men by stealing their energy to survive. Fate throws Miyoung and Jihoon together when Miyoung saves Jihoon from a goblin attack. In the process Miyoung loses her bead, her gumiho soul. She and Jihoon must work together to get it back to Miyoung. Excuse me while I go plan my trip to Seoul!

I‘m not very familiar with Loretta Lynn‘s music, but I really needed a book that #featuresamusician for #booked2019 and #writtenbyamusician for #pop19. This one looked most promising. The audio is read by Sissy Spacek and is excellent. Some of the stuff was hard to believe, like Loretta getting married at 13 and being a grandma at 29, but overall it was an enjoyable book. Now I‘m off to listen to some Loretta Lynn!

IamIamIam We used to watch this movie endlessly. My grandfather had a thing for Sissy Spacek! 🤣 Hope it's great! 3mo

Dry | Neal Shusterman

This is my #CliFi pick for #Booked2019 and I loved it! I wasn‘t expecting to, honestly. Neal Shusterman is an amazing author. Dry is about a group of teens searching for water after upstream states cut off California‘s access to the Colorado River during a terrible drought. It‘s a slow build to realistic seeming disaster.

Cape May: A Novel | Chip Cheek
post image
Pickpick

Cape May gave me serious Great Gatsby vibes! Effie & Henry are on their honeymoon in 1950‘s Cape May. It‘s the off season, so they are bored and lonely until they fall in with a glamorous, free spirited crowd. Cape May is an exploration of love, adultery, and their consequences.

Warning: sexism.

As you can see from the graphic (credit: Celadon Books), Effie & Henry have a booze soaked honeymoon!

Larose | Louise Erdrich

I wanted to like this novel. I expected it to be heart-wrenching given the subject matter. It was not heart-wrenching. It was dull.

In LaRose, a hunter accidentally shoots and kills his neighbor‘s son. The hunter & his wife give the grieving family their son, LaRose, to raise.

I don‘t really have anything to say about LaRose other than it was boring. I own one other Louise Erdrich book, which I am now hesitant to read.

Wow! What a great book with shocking twist at the end. The main character, Theo, is a therapist who changes jobs to treat famous murderer Alicia Berenson. Alicia murdered her husband and then never uttered another word. Supposedly. As Theo became more and more obsessed with Alicia‘s story, I got more engrossed in the novel.

Read this book!

Thank you to Celadon Books for sending me a free copy.
