Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane
post image

In the past week or so I blazed through Lock Every Door, Saga vol 7, Gideon Falls 2, Black Hammer 1, and American Predator. Maybe I‘m having a book hangover but I can‘t seem to get into this one right now. Maybe I will set it aside for now. Veronica Mars has been released on Hulu (one week early!!) so I will concentrate that for now. 🙂

TheLudicReader I picked this book club for my September book club. I hope it‘s not a dud. (I haven‘t read it yet.) On the other hand....Veronica Mars. I am totally obsessed. I am limiting myself to one episode at a time so I don‘t blow through the season 4 too quickly. 1d
DeeLew @TheLudicReader I was going to try that too but I‘m already on episode 4. 🤣 I LOVE Veronica Mars and I am so glad she‘s back. ❤️❤️ 1d
TheLudicReader @DeeLew I just finished episode 4 last night. Love, love, love. Have no idea why I didn‘t watch this back in the day. 1d

I found a comic book store that I didn‘t know existed not too far from my house. I have to go back when I have more $$. I grabbed this one as it been on my TBR for a while. Looking forward to it.

DeeLew @Eyelit The guy at the comic book store told me it was heavy reading for a graphic novel. That sold me even more. 🖤 3w

I was thinking about a lot of the books I have read in the last few years and it occurred to me that there seems to be a new trend in storytelling. Is it just me or does it seem that a lot of writers create characters that are unlikeable? I have always loved the feeling of falling in love with characters or identifying with them and caring about what happens to them. Closing the book and being sad because I will miss them. Continued in comments..

Megabooks Yes, it does seem like there are more unlikable characters. 1mo
DeeLew But lately I have read several books where I either really disliked the characters or I was indifferent to what happened to them (as is the case in the tagged book). Is this a thing? Creating unlikeable characters with no few, if any redeeming qualities? Or have I become jaded? 🤔 1mo
DeeLew @Megabooks I thought it was just me. Lol 1mo

Yesterday I posted a photo of my latest copy of The Outsiders. I felt like it was strictly for adding to my collection. But after I snapped the photo and posted here, I opened up the book to read my favorite opening line of all time and I kept reading until I finished the book. 🤣 Stay Gold! 🌅 Image from Google.

I‘ve lost track of how many copies I have of this book. I will never forget the first time I read it. I was home sick and this was the assigned reading for my Novels class. I read it in one sitting and started all over and read it again. By the time I got back to school I practically had the entire novel memorized. Even though there have been many books I have loved, this one will always hold a special place in my heart. I have multiple editions.

This book is just okay so far. It is definitely a page turner but the characters are mostly unlikeable. I‘m hoping it gets better. It gets mixed reviews so we will see. In the meantime I am enjoying a beautiful first day of my staycation reading outside. ☀️🌸🍹🌳🌸📚

I have a bit of a book hangover after finishing A Boy‘s Life so I‘ve been pulling different books off my shelf that have been sitting for a long time. I used to think I wanted to be an anthropologist or paleontologist. Unfortunately, I am a little too wimpy to spend years toiling in the desert to try and find human fossils. 🤣 I just read about other‘s research instead.

I am ashamed to be from Missouri right now. Besides a strict abortion ban, our lawmakers think most rape is consensual. 🤬 I know this is a touchy subject and I try to be fairly quiet about it but I feel that we are living in a dangerous time. Will post a link in the comments.

Weaponxgirl It‘s horrific! I‘m sorry you lost friends but its important to talk about things that matter to us and be one of the brave ones to dissent to show that not everyone agrees with these things.
