I have a copy of The Iliad and a set of Dickens‘ works that were both published in 1870. I also have a set of Thackeray published in 1890. I started collecting antique books a couple of years ago!

1. Of course, the quintessential example of movie trumping book—The Princess Bride!
2. Jaws
3. The Shawshank Redemption

There are other examples of great movies coming from great books, like Jurassic Park, No Country for Old Men, and Doctor Sleep, but to me, they are more equal, while the ones I chose for my list evinced a greater disparity in quality. Just my opinion! 😁

It | Stephen King

Three of my favorite bildingsromans are:
1. It by Stephen King—there‘s nothing like a killer paranormal clown to help you transition to adulthood! 🤡
2. The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton—I fell in love with this as a teenager and still love it today. This tiny book packs a real emotional wallop! ❤️
3. Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward—a lyrical tale of magical realism.

The Power | Naomi Alderman
post image
Pickpick

I didn‘t love this but it‘s definitely thought-provoking. Women are suddenly imbued with the power to kill men at will, and chaos results. Men are understandably less than thrilled at suddenly becoming the weaker sex. I felt sympathy for the men being victimized by the women, but then my mind would go to the centuries of women enduring the same treatment. It proves my theory that everything comes back to Animal Farm—humans are corrupted by power!

TheIntrovertedDodoBird The TV adaptation of this is absolutely incredible! I really must read the book. Excellent, thought-provoking review! 1mo

I‘m not a big nonfiction reader, but here goes:
1. I‘m a big SK fan, so his life story woven around tips from his writing experience is a win for me.
2. Hyperbole and a Half is one of the funniest memoirs ever!
3. The Glass Castle left me flabbergasted—I couldn‘t believe those events actually happened.

monalyisha Gosh, reading Allie Brosh‘s blog was so formative for me.

1. My daughter discovered that she could still control our upstairs stereo with an app on her phone after she moved to CA (we‘re in TX). While my husband and I were downstairs, she turned on the stereo upstairs and cranked the volume up and down while it played “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” by Tiny Tim (Insidious)! My husband‘s face!!

I went into this blind and so was even more blown away by this quirky, drily humorous and simultaneously gory haunted house tale! Haunted houses are my favorite, but this was like no other haunted house I‘ve ever heard of. The bleeding walls, the shrieking ghosts, the biting ghosts, and a host of other paranormal oddities are dealt with in a matter-of-fact tone that only makes them more surreal. Absolutely LOVED it!!

I really enjoyed this! I feel like it‘s not easy to come up with unique horror tales, and this one was, imo, very different from anything else I‘ve read. The ending was a little weak, and I wanted to kill the male MC a couple of times (can you say toxic masculinity? 🙄) but it was very gripping! Highly recommended for horror fans!

Ugh!! It‘s been a long time since I‘ve disliked a book like this. I still can‘t believe that Canas used the lure of vampires to trick us into reading this sappy Romeo & Juliet love story. The vampires ended up being more of a minor plot point. When they finally show up, the MC, Nena, just tells them to go away and they do. Then she makes friends with them and saves them from the evil white men. WTH?? 🤦‍♀️ Just, no.

I love Wharton‘s writing and this was another great one. Undine Spragg is a memorable character, indeed! She is like a chameleon, adapting herself to every new environment to ensure that she achieves her goals. The changes are surface-level only—inside, her character stays the same: selfish, self-centered, greedy, and ambitious. She hasn‘t a thought to spare for anyone but herself. She actually makes Scarlett O‘Hara look sympathetic! 🤔

This was . . . different! It was quite a page-turner, though. I couldn‘t put it down. There‘s a high creep factor throughout the mildly bizarre events of the narrator meeting her boyfriend‘s parents. The mildly bizarre ratchets up to really bizarre and the action kicks in. Still not sure I completely understand the ending! 🤔 Great read!

Vansa The wasp factory is by a different author though? 3mo

I had heard repeatedly that this was a genuinely creepy book, and they were right! I had trouble putting this down. I got annoyed with some of the foolish choices of the characters, but who in the hell could be expected to fully understand what they were up against? Very gripping horror story!

Reggie I still think about the character who wants to be a doctor and comes to the face the fact that he can‘t save people no matter how much he wants to. 3mo

The Circle | Dave Eggers

I absolutely loved this! It might have upped the plot complexity to have made Mae more conflicted about what was happening, but I feel like her “sheeple”-like quality represents society as a whole. The book is so spot-on with the approach to social media. Especially terrifying is the thought process behind their ever-more controlling surveillance tactics. I can see people today agreeing with them. Highly recommended for dystopian fans!

KathyWheeler Did you see the movie? 3mo
Reggie I laughed when she gets in trouble because the guy was like we‘ve both been to Portugal and you ignored me. lol something like that. It got crazy. 3mo
CindyMyLifeIsLit @KathyWheeler No, and now I‘m reluctant to. I enjoyed the book so much and they usually ruin it with the movie! Did you like the movie? 3mo
CindyMyLifeIsLit @Reggie Yes, their sensitivity was off the charts! What a great life—spending every minute trying to acknowledge every stranger on the internet who shows you the slightest bit of attention. I thought the book was an amazing commentary on our society! 3mo
KathyWheeler @CindyMyLifeIsLit I didn‘t particularly care for the movie; to me it was completely forgettable. Which was a shame because I really liked the book. 3mo

I do love a good haunted house tale! This sounds most promising! “The house would not let them live there without them doing what they were paid to do. The question was whether the money would be enough of a compensation for what the house might do to them. Eunice‘s previous tenants in the Masson House—Jane and Max Renner—could attest to that, presuming Max cared to ever resurface and Jane regained the ability to speak” (38). No spoilers, please!
