One of the best books I've read so far this year. Paper Ghosts kept me riveted and on the edge of my seat. I couldn‘t wait to finish it but at the sane time, didn't want it to end! A definite five ⭐️ read.

Okay so I started to read this book on my Kindle (bottom pic) then decided to switch over to the book form (top pic) and noticed This! Why do they do this?? Why aren‘t both versions the same? 🥺

I liked the writing, I liked the style but I‘d say, for me, this book feel midway between a so-so and a pick. A solid 3.5 ⭐️

he: A Novel | John Connolly
post image

What was Babe before him? What was he before Babe? It is as though, shortly after their first meeting, they became conjoined, so that all other possible existences ceased at that moment. Is this of consequence? Of course it is.
And of course it is not.
Half of these existences—Babe‘s more than his, because Babe was captured by the light long before he—are anyway unreal. Like the flesh, film is a temporary medium.
It rots, it burns.

Can I really be the very first “Litster” to be reading this book❓

blurb

“This was the amicably banal sort of dialogue, he thought, in which he and Janet would have indulged if they had stayed married. Over dinner, they would have discussed hemorrhoids and cataracts and the replacing of knees. “Just tell me they didn‘t put quotation marks around ‘special‘ pasta,” he said. “You know I can‘t eat things that are badly punctuated or misspelled.”

Fitger, unsurprisingly, was ten minutes late to his own meeting. He found the faculty seated scattershot in the classroom‘s desk-and-chair contraptions, some facing east, some north or west—like frustrated drivers in a series of stalled bumper cars.

Florence Gordon | Brian Morton

“Yetta‘s bullshit detector was intact; her sense of humor was intact; her pride was intact. But gone was the faculty that makes you want to take care of yourself, and gone was the faculty that enables you to distinguish between what is real and what is not. It reminded Florence of the dreaming mind, which retains all the qualities that make you you, except for the capacity to know when you‘re awake and when you‘re dreaming.”

25% in and I just had to bail. I just couldn‘t. I found Wavy creepy as hell (to say the least!) and the writing was just strange. There was no connection for me and even though I paid for this one I just waste any more of my precious reading time on this one that I barely liked. 🤦🏽‍♀️

When you‘re halfway through and it‘s only been ONE day you know you got a good one. So loving this book right now! 🤩

RadicalReader @Briget66 you‘re going to absolutely devour this book I have already got on hold several other gem sounded quality novels from this amazing author 12mo
Briget66 @RadicalReader OMG, I thought this was his first novel (how the heck did I think that??!!) so when I saw your message Of course I had to go look. Imagine my surprise when I realized I‘d read one other of his books already! (Yup, I read too much) 😛 But now, thanks to you, I have another book to add to my TBR list 🤗 12mo
RadicalReader @Briget66 hooked doesn‘t even begin to explain how intrigued and on the edge of my seat I was when reading this I had to get a hold of more of his incredible content. Knowing The One was such a slam dunk I know I am going to be in for a treat with his others. The next one I am going to read is 12mo
Nute This sounds intriguing. I‘ve never heard of this author before. Can‘t wait to read this. Thanks for the enthusiastic comments. 12mo

“Cooking was a talent of her mother‘s that Amina often thought of as evolutionary, a way for Kamala to survive herself with friendships intact. Like plumage that expanded to rainbow an otherwise unremarkable bird, Kamala‘s ability to transform raw ingredients into sumptuous meals brought her the kind of love her personality on its own might have repelled.” 😏

I had such high hopes for this book but about 2/3 of the way though, I just had to bail. I stopped caring about what happened to the characters and didn‘t want to force myself to finish it just to finish it. So, another book I couldn‘t finish. 😔

akckitty @Briget66 It‘s unfortunate when that happens. I hope the next book you read is a good one! ❤️ 13mo

The Great Believers | Rebecca Makkai

While I was reading this book I actually fell asleep thinking of these characters. I‘d take them into my sleep with me. It‘s rare that a book will do that but Yale and his friends captured my heart. Then left me heartbroken. What a devastating depiction of the early years of AIDS. This book will linger.

TheNerdyProfessor This has been on my wish list for months. I can't wait to read this one. 14mo

This debut novel by Tommy Orange (what a cool name!) hooked me early and kept me hooked. With a cast full of characters that you can‘t help but love, this book weaves seamlessly between them, bringing them all together for a heartbreaking end.

Wow! I‘m pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this book. Most of the thrillers I‘ve read recently had me skipping pages just to get to the end. But this book was different. I actually found myself SLOWING down as I neared the last 20 or so pages. And even though I ‘kinda‘ figured this book out, I found the ending to be original and quite the surprise. I didn‘t see that coming! If you like your thrillers smart you‘ll ❤️ this 📖!

I was so excited to read another Julian Barnes book but I just couldn‘t make it through this one. About 1/4 of the way in, I thought of putting it aside but made myself read on. Then halfway through gave up again. Sadly I just couldn‘t get into it.

CarolynM Maybe try again later? I find I have to be in the right mood for Julian Barnes. When I am I love him. 1y

Mehso-so

I really wanted to love this book (look at that cover!). But about half way through I realized I hadn‘t bonded with any of the 4 main characters. It was like they were never fully fleshed out for me and even though I didn‘t dislike any of them (except for Daniel in the middle there), I didn‘t much LIKE any of them either. And towards the end I just found myself wishing the book would just End. So, sadly, this was only a so-so pick for me. 😕

mrozzz Hmmm 🤔 May put this off for a bit then. 1y
KateFulfordAuthor If you need another recommendation, may I point you to my People‘s Book Prize nominated debut? Sassy female narrative, laugh out dialogue and a pacy plot. Check the link in the bio for 2 free chapters, reviews and more. 1y

They volleyed back and forth a few times, their barbs getting hollower as they got meaner. This kind of meanness was meant for people having sex, people who could later expunge the meanness in the half-tender, half-violent act of merging.

quote
Briget66

Another way to say it was: the practice had marched right up to the edge of being inappropriate, and enough was enough. They‘d never had sex, not even close. There‘d been nothing sexually charged about their relationship. Nothing really romantic either, unless you counted that feeling of mutual recognition when someone wraps her body around yours and you both go unconscious.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ This is one of those books that I didn‘t want to ever end and that I really wish I owned (it was a library loan). I liked all four siblings..LOVED Simon 😍, was awed by Klara 😮, disappointed in Daniel 😢 and sympathized with Varya. 🤔. One of the best books I‘ve read in a long long time! Loved it!!

The Immortalists | Chloe Benjamin

Perhaps the point is not to resist death. Perhaps the point is that there‘s no such thing. If Simon and Saul are contacting Klara, then consciousness survives the death of the body. If consciousness survives the death of the body, then everything she‘s been told about death isn‘t true. And if everything she‘s been told about death isn‘t true, maybe death isn‘t death at all.

Most adults claim not to believe in magic, but Klara knows better. Why else would anyone play at permanence—fall in love, have children, buy a house— in the face of all evidence there‘s no such thing?
