I am at home for the next few days with a chest infection on some areas of my lung have collapsed with that. Hoping to do a lot of reading and avoid the America V Australia 'we don't want these refugees. Well we don't want them either so you take them' sadness. Starting my reading with this. 50 pages in and a lot of rape.... Side Note I would yell at Turnbull also but about my lack of NBN... and so much more. 🇦🇺

Sigh. I wanted to love this. I really enjoy stories of gods walking earth but this just seemed so cliche . I feel like so many other stories did this better such as Neil Gaiman. I won't continue with it. I am glad people like it though.

Ahhh!! I understand that the writing is amazing and the story is very well thought out but I don't think I can do classics like this at the moment. I know that books like this are products of their time etc etc but I just can't deal the gender and race issues. Maybe it won't infuriate me so much in a year or so. ^this is how I fee after reading that and also the Australian heat is killing me and him!

Dedebimp @melbeautyandbooks have you watched it yet? I really liked the ending and how it wrapped up. I hated how long it was. It felt like it only needed to be a fraction of the amount of time. 3y
melbeautyandbooks @Dedebimp- Yes I watched the whole thing. There were some amazing moments- Emily at the DAR meeting was hysterical. Overall I liked it. I see the show as a dramedy. The new episodes were more drama than comedy. I think part of that was because of Richard's death. I didn't like those last 4 words. 3y
Dedebimp @melbeautyandbooks I like the closure bits with Dean and Logan and Emily was great. What was with all the musical montages? I really liked the end. I like how she was always expecting to be this great journalist and she ends up just following in her mothers footsteps. I thought it was really good. I like how Jess was left open. I still fee it could have been done in a two hour special not six. 3y

I enjoyed this book soo much. I have been in a reading slump since before Trump and then the whole Trump thing just made it worse. This book though just grabbed me from the start and I just flew through it. Really a great take on zombies and a really thorough plot.

Laura317 I know! The ending was not at all what I expected, either. 3y
Dedebimp @Laura317 I am often disappointed with endings because I hate overly happy endings in most scenarios. This ending was great. I didn't see it coming and it was really fitting. 3y

Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront

What does everyone who has read Withering Heights classify it as? I have trouble with calling it a love story. I think of it as a story of obsession and what that can make people do to each other. *side note it was our first 38d day since last summer and this guy could not deal😂

obviateit Definitely not a love story. 3y

This is the third book in the Penguin Monarch series that I have read. I also read Henry VIII and Edward VI. These are really good starting points for anyone interested in the monarchy. They are well researched and very short therefore they remain interesting and don't get dry. Will be reading the rest of the Windsor's next.

This happened in Bentleigh, down the road from me in the last couple of years! Absolutely disgusting. This is only the second page. I think it is going to be an infuriating and important read. When my family came to this country we were told the same thing. Sent back because our language skills would be tested in Dutch instead of English. That was 100-50 years ago. We don't experience this anymore but others still do!There is a problem!

This smallish bookshelf holds all my TBR. Well almost. Sometimes when I look for a new book I get sort of anxious and can't settle on one. I came across this jar option on a Bullet Journal site. Just pop your TBR in the jar and choose one. Works if like me, you find choice a little daunting.

BookishFeminist I love this idea! Might give this a try. 3y
alisonrose I give myself a little more leniency - I choose three slips from my jar and then pick one of the three. That way, I'm not overwhelmed but I still get a choice 😁 Also I use different colored paper so it looks purty 3y
Dedebimp @alisonrose I think three options would still panic me. 🙂I was excepting the jar to be full because there are so many books on that shelf. But I write Sumer small with a really fine pen so I was disappointed by the result of a scattering of papers lol 3y

I really liked this book until the end. I was not a fan of that style ending but it was still worth the read. Very enjoyable

Not sure if I should hold off on this until next year when I read all the major works of feminist writings that I haven't gotten around to yet. Or if I should just dive right in?

Sue I say go nuts :) Clementine seems a great place to start. 3y
mischa Dive right in! 3y
