The Nest: A Novel | Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney

Mehso-so

Too many unnecessary POVs that didn't help the plot move along. The main characters were all unlikable and entitled 😕 My main interest in this book was that it was set in nyc.

Jeffrey Cranor (co author of Welcome to Night Vale) gave me his copy of this book at World Book Night. His review about this book was great and I wish I took notes 😅 I'm only a couple of pages in but it's a series of short stories about loss.

Matilda Love the cover. 4y

bookish.hummingbird ? Me too! I'm doing QA automation (with Ruby) for the first time with no coding knowledge. It's one of those "getting thrown in the deep end" situations. It's a great way to learn though. ? 4y

Binge watching Master of None #netflixandchillaloneonthanksgiving and starting Aziz's book too. I highly recommend both 🙂🙃

PennyNotSoDreadful ❤️modern romance & master of none!!! 4y
todd Obsessed with Aziz at the moment. Curious to know how you like the book. 4y
Connie @Todd so far, it wasn't what I expected (not in a bad way!) He and a researcher/sociologist team up so it's very data/research driven. It's an informative book with some humor but I initially thought it was a humorous books with some information 😅 4y
QuirkBooks That episode with the dads? Loooove 4y
Connie @QuirkBooks yesss! Aziz's dad is the star of the show 🌞✨ 4y
