Friends who‘ve joined the #obamabuddyread, take note! This is LOW pressure, hence the one part a month. I don‘t need added stress in my life and neither does anyone else 😂 So, we start tomorrow (officially) but there aren‘t rules about pages per day, etc. Start at your leisure, or read it all in one sitting! Take notes if you‘d like as I hope to have discussions at the end of each month/part. Enjoy and have fun!

TheBookHippie 😂🎉👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 4d
AmyG I just started it! And yay!!! For some reason I thought it was 2 parts a month. 😝 Thanksgiving has left me with a few screws loose. (edited) 3d
CBee @AmyG I think life leaves me with a few permanent screws loose 😂😂😂 3d
Sleepswithbooks I just started too. It‘s going to be my lunch break read when I need to get outside the psych hospital for a mental cleanse 📖 3d
CBee @Sleepswithbooks I think this book will be perfect for that 😊 3d

CBee @peanutnine no pressure! If it doesn‘t come available by the 1st, no worries at all. You‘ve got the whole month for the first part 😊 5d
CBee @AmyG same, but I got it for Christmas! I remember you posting about your hubby getting it for you (same here ha) 😊 5d
AmyG Ha!!! He kept asking me for months if I‘d read it. He finally stopped asking. 😂 5d
CBee @AmyG mine knows not to ask 😂😂 I mean it‘s a chunky book and that takes commitment 😂 Hence, our buddy read! I‘m excited to finally read it and really digest everything. Btw I‘ve started Cloud Cuckoo Land, the length is daunting but I like it so far! 5d
AmyG It‘s so good. Takes a little to get the hang of all the characters. 5d

Okay, my #obamabuddyread friends, the book is broken up into parts rather than chapters. What if we did one part per month? Thoughts?

Hi Litsy friends! Would anyone be interested in a #chapteraday challenge? I want to read this, but I struggle with nonfiction 🤷‍♀️ I think if I broke it down into chapters, it would be much easier for me! Tagging a few peeps I think might be interested but please spread the word! Thanks!
(Will tag more later, gotta take the kiddo to school 😂)

Bookwormjillk I've been listening to the audio for this. It makes it much more do-able if you like audio. Well worth reading!

This is a story of two sisters. It‘s also a story set in the parts of Philadelphia that probably get overlooked, underfunded, generally ignored. It‘s a story of addiction, sacrifice, police misconduct, and abuse.
It‘s a story about losing family, finding family in the most unlikely of places, then finding lost family again.
It was EXCELLENT. I won‘t soon forget it.

AmyG I loved this, too. ❤️ 1mo

Amelia ♥️ I related to her so much. It touches on so many different emotions, but mainly grief and how it changes us, how paths can converge but also change (and how that‘s okay, because life is so fluid anyway). Just a great read that will break your heart but fill you with so much hope too. Loved it! I read this because @robinb loved it so much ♥️♥️

robinb Oh Cydney, I‘m so glad you loved it too!! 😊😘 Such a great story with characters that stay with you long after you‘ve finished the book. Definitely one that will stay on my re-read list. Thanks for the reminder of how/why I loved it so much. 1mo

Flew through this one! Decided October was the perfect time for some ghosty stories, and this one fit the bill for sure! A fabulously independent and intelligent heroine, a swoony police inspector, a resident ghost, family secrets, a coastal English town, and murder mysteries to boot! Loved it!

@AmyG finished this maybe a half hour ago. Cried, gasped, felt like my heart might burst. Learned so much and felt sad about how maybe I don‘t do enough for the world. It was just like reading Migrations but also different and possibly more painful in a way? But I loved it and she‘s officially a favorite author ♥️♥️

AmyG Agree with it all. I could barely finish because I couldn‘t see the words through my tears. I knew you‘d love this, too. Definitely-a favorite author! Or, as they say on Litsy….her books are an “auto buy”. (edited) 2mo

I doubt that anything I say can or will do this incredible book justice.

I am so glad I finally read this! I‘m equal parts wrecked and joyful. Ursa will be in my heart forever ♥️
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks have you read this? You‘d love it!

magyklyXdelish Ughhhhhh one of my FAVES. This book is so special and I needed lots of Kleenex by the end lol 5mo

I‘m not sure how Clark does it, but he packs a big punch into a smaller amount of pages! What an incredible world he‘s created. Can‘t wait to read more! Ring Shout will always be my fave though 👏🏻👏🏻

I can‘t believe this series is over! The final book was perfection and wrapped everything up nicely. I‘ll miss this world and these characters! Maybe a series reread is in order one day ♥️

I could spend all my time in this world - now on to the next, I can‘t take that cliffhanger! 🦅 🐦 🦢

Lisa Jewell is so good at multi-layered, keep you guessing stories. I flew through this one and I *think* there might be a sequel? Because the ending was a bit of a cliffhanger…. So, here‘s hoping for book 2! 😁🤷‍♀️

Holy SHIT (sorry) this was a-friggin-mazing 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I need more of this world, these characters. I suck at reviews and don‘t even know what else to say. ALL the stars.

AmyG Wow 6mo
Annie1215 The review was effective though! 6mo
CBee @AmyG READ THIS. It‘s got some gory parts and that didn‘t even bother me. It is POWERFUL. 6mo

KathyWheeler I love this author so much! 6mo
CBee @KathyWheeler this is my first by him! What else of his have you read? I think I have 6mo
KathyWheeler @CBee I loved A Dead Djinn in Cairo. It was the first book I read of his. The Haunting of Tram Car 015 is set in the same world as Djinn; I liked it. The Black God‘s Drums is set in an alternative New Orleans and is good. His new novel is A Master of Djinn; I haven‘t read it yet. 6mo
CBee @KathyWheeler all added to the never ending TBR 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 6mo
AmyG I will! When the baby leaves. I have read 1 chapter in 4 days. 🙌🏻 6mo
CBee @AmyG oh my gosh Jeremy is there!! Hooray! Is it wonderful?? 🥰🥰🥰 6mo
KathyWheeler @CBee They are all pretty short except for the new novel. I really hope you enjoy them. (edited) 6mo
CBee @KathyWheeler I would love if he‘d write another novella or novel about Maryse and the other Ring Shout characters ♥️ 6mo
KathyWheeler @CBee I hope he does. 6mo

Started quite slow and meandered around a bit, but I was absolutely invested in this story! And the ending was incredible 💫
