I thought it was a nice little mystery to listen to throughout the day but idk some of the interactions didn‘t flow quite right, it just wasn‘t my favorite book. But another cozy mystery down for #teamslaughter @Clwojick

It was alright but there were some big plot points that were just left and forgotten. Like the author added it as an after thought and forgot to incorporate it into the ending, or maybe decided to take it out but forgot to go back and remove the content. Idk it was enough to turn what could have been a good book bad. Either way, more points for #TeamSlaughter @Clwojick

SPOILERS FOR DISCUSSION! Just finished Picture of Dorian Grey for the first time and I‘m intrigued by the ending. Generally online I found the idea that when Dorian Grey stabs the portrait he absorbs all the fates of the image including the knife to the heart leaving the picture in tact.

I‘m wondering how many of you have other interpretations or thoughts?

My thoughts in comments. #booktalk

Also counting this for #teamslaughter @Clwojick

ConfessionofaBookaholic Personally I‘m wondering about the idea that they switched places and Dorian Grey is left trapped inside the painting… (edited) 4mo

I don‘t read a lot of sports novels but #playingforpizza is hands down my favorite. I‘ll admit, it‘s probably a bit more about the food than the football but I love the story!

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller
post image
Mehso-so

Not that this book is bad cause it‘s not. I actually really enjoyed it. But I feel all the hype I got about it was over exaggerated. I was told it was 100x better than Circe and it would make me cry my eyes out. I didn‘t get that:..but then, I already knew the story of Achilles so maybe that‘s the difference 🤷‍♀️ It‘s definitely a good read, if I had to compare I‘d say I prefer Circe but that may be an unpopular opinion. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

ImperfectCJ I read Song of Achilles first and liked it pretty well, but I agree, I prefer Circe by a lot. I don't know how I would have felt if I'd read them in the opposite order. 5mo

Last night of #cyoreadathon and I pulled together a solid 5 hours of reading (not so bad for me right now) and I‘m very happy with it. Since yesterday along with some more of conjuring of light I finished The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar and started A Discovery of Witches to mix things up. Had a great time this weekend and I‘ll keep adding books to #screamathon and #scarathon for #teamharkness.

If you struggle with #insomnia like I do here is an amazing #podcast series designed for literary insomniacs like ourselves called “Sleepy Time Tales”. Tales perfectly chosen to be just interesting enough to hold your attention but not interesting enough to keep you up all night. HIGHLY RECOMMEND ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!
