I do not think I was smart enough for this book. Was just confusing.

Redwritinghood I don‘t think it was you. I think the book just didn‘t make sense. I didn‘t like it either. (edited) 5d

She‘s so real and open. So much of this book is not safe for work. Here I am, listening at work. I keep making sure my headphones are all the way plugged in!! Alternating between laughing and gasping in horror. What a life.

Sabriel was great! It‘s there in the middle of my fall stack. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Initially did not even want to read, but glad I did!!

chaoticgoodhufflepuff I adore this series! If you like audiobooks, you should give them a try. Tim Curry reads the first three and he is utter perfection as Mogget. 4w

The whole trip felt like a series of short films, screened only once, and afterward he had a sense of what they were about but no exact memories of the plot.

There was nothing scary about this book for me. I picked it as my book of the month because it had a high creep factor. I really enjoyed the people drama, so it‘s still a pick, just didn‘t give me my hopes for nightmares.

Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams
post image
Pickpick

I have seen so many reviews where readers said they liked the book despite hating Queenie‘s attitude and wanting to throw the book and shout at her for her behavior. That‘s why I loved it though. It was a realistic look at anxiety and the spiraling effect it can have. The worst case attitude, the negativity, the self-destruction. I loved Queenie. ✨💥

Why do people go to these places, these places that are not for them? It must be that they believe in their night vision. They believe themselves able to draw images up out of the dark. But black wells only yield black water.

Started this lovely little book this week! I‘ve never read it, nor seen the movie! 🥳
Also, the last book I read, The Chemist, I‘ve posted about already - but here‘s my blog about it. I have a book club section on the blog where I detail questions we talk about during meeting — https://greenlightphilosophy.blog/2019/07/09/blockbuster-books-the-chemist/

That-Bookish-Hiker Love this book! And the movie is just as good since the author had a very big roll in making it. 3mo
DimeryRene @That-Bookish-Hiker Good to know. I watched the preview this morning and I‘m excited to finish the book and then get to the movie. 🥳 3mo

Mehso-so

Between a pick and a so so. Read it for a book club and enjoyed it enough to finish in a weekend. Had a very hard time thinking of questions to ask at book club. I don‘t think there‘s much to discuss here. Lots of action, lots of guns, big summer block buster of a book. My sticky notes are things I want to discuss, but all very surface level. 🙄

This book made me think of one word: yearn. Evie, our main character, wants so badly to grow up and be loved and to be beautiful. She wants to be an adult and understand the aftermath of WWII and her parents and the hushed conversations all the adults in her life seem to have. She yearns for so many things and grasps a few in the end. A few others, though, fall right through her fingers.

People flee to America from war-torn countries every day. Some are Arabs. Some are Muslims. Some are both, like us. But we could live here for the rest of our lives and never be Americans. You think you‘re doing the right thing by wearing this hijab, but that‘s not what Americans will see when they look at you. They won‘t see your modesty or your goodness. All they‘ll see is an outcast, someone who doesn‘t belong.

My favorite part of reading was hearing Sadie describe how other people talk. I wonder what each of us pick up on because we perceive it as our faults and look upon others as having better ‘x‘ than us.
