Omg I just finished this book and I want to add my love to the cacophony of love for this book. I had medium high expectations and it was so much better. It had more depth than I was expecting, the right amount of warmth and romance — all together the perfect summer book. So if anyone is waffling I strongly recommend it! ♥️❤️

KarenUK Loved it too... 💕 1mo

I grabbed a couple books from my@library sale@room and the tagged book reeks so strongly of cigarette smoke I have to return it. I‘ve never had this happen before but used books have adventurous pasta right? Hopefully someone else will be able to get past it 😬

Anyone else have any fun/weird used book encounters?

Park Avenue Summer | Renée Rosen

For a book that was based on the life of a interesting woman this book fell flat - the characters lacked depth & the ending was cliche.
The constant comments about Alice‘s Ohio naïveté really started to grate and it‘s poor/lack of handling of women‘s rights was irritating. I understand that the book is placed in the 60s and feminism has changed a lot but I think there is a missed opportunity to really dig into the complexities and changes.

RaimeyGallant Such a shame. 1mo

Just finished this audiobook — a memoir about Molly Bloom who ends up in the ever odd world of the moneyed powerful elite to run poker games.

It was interesting but there is little in Bloom‘s life that I found relatable so it won‘t be add to my Favorites list any time soon. HOWEVER the one thing I want to share with everyone because I‘m annoyed this isn‘t more well know is the TOBY MCGUIRE is The Worst. Seriously. maybe even nearly sociopathy.

Schlinkles He is the worst! Have you seen the movie? It was pretty good and Michael Cera was a pretty good sleazy imitation of Toby Maguire. 2mo
DogEaredBooks @Schlinkles I haven‘t seen it yet (and this is the first time the movie cover pulled me in). I do want to see it though - I love Jessica Chastin— so I‘m glad to hear good reviews! But seriously Toby is the worst! I‘m surprised he wasn‘t more upset about the book/movie (edited) 2mo

New library haul. I have no regrets (other than I wish my arms were longer so I could hold more books). Some I had heard of and others were brand new to me. Anyone read any of these?

Copwithabook Early Riser was a fun but strange read (that I kind of hope gets made into a movie with Kate mcKennon playing one of the characters). 2mo

This is one of my all time favorite books and I think can be included in #ownvoices. so thank you @silentrequiem for getting me to go through all my books for your giveaway #ownvoicesgiveaway and remember this great book and examine my books for this entry!

Runners up were: Vivian Chen‘s mystery series and Crazy Rich Asians. (Also this has kickstarted me to add more #ownvoices to my selves and tbr)

My library has started offering ARCs with receipt of checking out 3 books from the library! I almost cried when I saw the Ruth Reichl book. I have been wanting to buy it but it wasn‘t in the budget (and still 4 weeks out on Library holds). The other one looks amazing and doesn‘t come out until May!

MallenNC That's a great idea by the library! I wish mine would do that. I read The Report by Jessica Francis Kane, so I am glad to see she has a new book. 3mo

So a friend recently had a baby shower and of course I had to get her books so I‘ve been going down memory lane. I have been trying to remember (and google) the name of these books for a solid two days. Does anyone else remember reading these?

See if you would have figured it out: my google searches were for- lost brothers in jungle or snow storm. Grandparents telling tall tales.

I was plagued trying to remember a specific book from my childhood so after fruitless online searching I pulled out a box of my childhood books and found these little literary trips down memory lane. (More pics to follow!)

What are your favorite childhood books? What is your go to baby shower book gift?

I love this book so much. Sy Montgomery is always a great writer and this is one of those books that from the first page I knew I would love it. One of those sweet tender books that leave a little mark on you. If you need a pick me up in this crazy winter try this one!

Texreader Ok I‘m struggling the last two days with this one. It was on my tbr list. Saw it at bookstores yesterday and today and just randomly turned to a page and it wasn‘t what I expected and took it off my tbr list. And now your review!! Do I put it back on my list? 6mo
DogEaredBooks @Texreader It is a more personal memoir than her usual writings but I really did enjoy it. If you‘re not sure I would say read one of the chapters (they are mostly stand alone essays) and go from there. 6mo

So I went to read a summary of the above book for a exhibit on museums and children books and a review said “this book would have been better if it included a boy so it would be broadly accepted”

This book! Chills and goosebumps and heartache. I‘m not even halfway and I recommend it to everyone.

It‘s about the murders specifically in South LA and the detectives who work a specific case within the larger picture. It‘s giving a lot to think about and unfortunately I picked up this book just as life got super super busy.

This cozy mystery series is a quick read and it takes place in Cleveland! Perfect for fall. I can‘t wait for the third one that comes out this spring.

The series is about Lana Lee who is working at her parents Chinese restaurant and murders keep happening around her. It‘s nothing too horrific or complex, but they are well written and enjoyable!

This book was perfect for ushering in fall and I enjoyed it throughly! I‘ve had in on my shelves for a while but picked it up after reading (and loving his other book- Meddling Kids). It has a slow start but the twist makes it worth it! It‘s a crazy, quirky book full of twists and turns with a little of everything: horror, humor, Secret societies, ciphers, ghosts— Perfect Halloween/fall vibes.

This book was a surprise but in the best way. It was a quick read and perfect for summer and the beach but also tackled some real issues (rape culture, feminism, homophobia, and religion).
