Pickpick

I read all three of the graphic novels in this series in the span of a week or so, I just couldn‘t put them down! They are definitely some of the most gripping and moving things I‘ve read recently, and I couldn‘t recommend them highly enough if you haven‘t read them yet.

Why Read Moby-Dick? | Nathaniel Philbrick
post image

Starting off my year getting my bullet journal set up and preparing for Moby Dick! I‘ve read Moby Dick before, but I still like going through this little book before I reread it. It‘s a great companion read, Philbrick brings great insight and context to the novel and to Melville.

Americanah | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Started reading this one a week ago and so far it's living up to all the praise it has received. I find myself reading it in little chunks to savor the story. Lately I've been reading much more slowly than usual, anyone else get this way? I like the books I'm reading, I just seem to be going at a snail's pace with all my books!

Notafraidofwords That happens to me frequently. 2y

Gift from the Sea | Anne Morrow Lindbergh
post image
Pickpick

After finishing The Aviator's Wife I wanted to read some of Anne Morrow Lindbergh's work, so I picked this one up. I really enjoyed this short and calming read about the importance of slowing down and finding some solitude and time for yourself.

LauraBrook My grandma loved this book and I have her copy - methinks I should read it some time soon, feels like I need it in my life. 2y
Joyfulmimi I highly recommend "Against Wind and Tide" 2y
Kimzey I loved this book in my teens. I bet I'd receive even more wisdom from it now. I need to hunt down my copy and reread! 🌊 2y

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline
post image
Pickpick

I was on the library waiting list for MONTHS to get this one! There was so much hype around this last year, and I was very curious how much like the Manson story it would be, so couldn't wait to start on it. It was a very engrossing read and I finished it in a couple of days, but there was something missing for me...and I can't quite put my finger on it. Can't say I loved it but it was a fascinating & quick read.

KilgoreTrout I felt the same way! 2y
Mamashep I didn't love it either but it was certainly well worth the reading. 2y

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara
post image
Pickpick

Had such a difficult time getting into this one but I'm glad I stuck with it. It was probably the most emotionally draining book I've ever read, but the writing was so amazing, it was just an engrossing read. This book was quite an experience, but I understand that it might not be for everyone.

HeatherBookNerd Oh my heart. Completely devastating, but one of the best books I've ever read. I have never read such an accurate depiction of loving someone with mental illness. 3y

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara
post image

So I've been wanting to read this for ages and finally started recently....and I'm struggling to get into this. I'm about 70 pages in and I just can't get into it. I've heard so many wonderful things so I'm going to stick with it, but did anyone else have this issue??

TrishB Didn't kick in for me until about 100 pages - which was all I was going to give it! 3y
HardcoverHearts This is one that I love dearly and it changed me as a reader, but I also recognize that it is most assuredly not a novel for everyone. It's a journey. One thing to keep in mind is that there is a massive pivot about 1/4 of the way through the book where the ensemble view narrows to one character. Maybe hang in until it starts to change and see if that helps you connect more? But ultimately - no shame if you dump it. 3y
ElizaTodd I've been having an insanely hard time getting into this one! I've heard such good things so I want to push forward, just gotta get into the mindset to do it! 3y

Eastbriar @TrishB glad to know it's not just me. I'll stick with it! 3y
Eastbriar @HardcoverHearts good to know! I think it narrowing down to one character's view might help me. I've heard so many people say this book really affected them, so I really want to try and stick with it. 3y

Starting January 1st with a new book and some "titanium tea" a mix of black tea, green tea, and turmeric and ginger. With a bit of coconut oil added for creaminess. This is supposed to help with focus and metabolism ?Not sure how I feel about it just yet, but the book is good at least!

PatienceFortitude Does it wind up tasting like green tea at all? I like all the other stuff, not the taste of green tea though 3y
Lindy I'm intrigued by your tea. You've got a fabulous book to start off the year. 😀 3y
Eastbriar @PatienceFortitude I don't taste green tea at all, to me it tastes almost like an oatmeal cookie that isn't sweet. Sounds weird, but it was actually pretty good! 3y

Baba Dunja's Last Love | Alina Bronsky
post image

Some of my favorites from this year. I absolutely adored Baba Dunja's Last Love and Milk and Honey, but the Neapolitan series was my favorite thing I read this year. It was hard to get into at first, but once I did I fell in love with it...and I was quite sad when it was all over! So glad I finally jumped on the Ferrante train, it was worth the hype.

Such a great graphic novel. This was recommended to me ages ago but I just finally got around to it. It wasn't the easiest to read, took me a few days, but so glad I took my time with it. I loved the illustrations and format of this one. A heartbreaking read but I loved it.

Was it as good as the books? No. Was some of the dialogue a bit stilted? Yeah. Do I see what people mean when they said it reads a bit like fan fiction? Kinda. All in all though...I enjoyed it! I loved being back with those characters and back in that world, if only for a little bit. Also, loved Scorpius!! I hope I get the chance to see the play one day.

These books...I had such a rough start with the first one but now I don't want them to end. This novel follows Elena and Lila into their 20s and 30s amid their changing personal lives and the volatile political situation of that time. At the center though is their intense friendship.I felt like I was holding my breath the last 50 pages waiting to see where it would go. I feel so invested in these characters now, I'll be sad to have it end!

HardcoverHearts I agree that it took me a while to get into the series and I ended up breathing it all in like air. I couldn't get enough! 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I gave up after the first one. The following books are better? 3y

I'm so glad I discovered Sarah Vowel. I had never read any of her work before this and now I think I'm hooked. Sometimes reading history can be dry but this is nothing like that, she has a way of making history really engaging. It's history with wit and snark mixed in...can't wait to read more!

I love reading Alison Weir, I'm a huge fan of her non-fiction, but this kind of fell flat for me. The dialogue was a bit cringe-inducing at times. I feel like her non-fiction work is stronger, but I'm obsessed with Tudor history and I'd try the other books in the series when they come out.

I struggled with the first half of this novel and I'm not exactly sure why. The writing is lovely, don't get me wrong...I just had a hard time getting into this one. I loved the second half though and it's the reason why I recommend it. Mathilde was such a fascinating and dynamic character.

Megabooks I felt exactly the opposite. 🙃 3y
