#twofortuesday @TheSpineView

These are such interesting questions! I‘d say a reader. I see a bibliophile as liking beautiful books, owns multiple editions, loves to collect and arrange books, and a reader as someone who‘s just after the words inside. I like nice covers but I don‘t really ‘prize‘ my physical collection. I dog ear and crease books and give them away, so I don‘t think I count as a bibliophile or collector.

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 🤩📚📖 3d

I‘ve been meaning to read this for literal years then I saw there was a Netflix show and decided to finally read it. A very sweet, quick read. I read it in one sitting on a cold Sunday evening and it suited the mood perfectly. I‘m excited to read more for sure

Afghanistan | Ruth Bjorklund
post image

Pleased to announce I‘ve finally eaten some Afghan food for #foodandlit this month! My boyfriend saw this food truck on the way to work and we had to walk to the site three different times after failing to find its opening hours online. It was worth it though - I had a chapti kebab wrap which was something I‘ve never tried before, really really nice.

This was a very silly romp and I really enjoyed it. I liked that the setting and characters of this Bridgerton prequel felt fresh and different. By the end of the main Bridgerton series I felt like Julia Quinn was maybe running out of ideas, but the American setting and elaborate very melodramatic amnesia concept were great fun.

I was so excited to read this after finishing Ariadne earlier this year. I did like it, but probably less than Ariadne. I think because I knew the myths better this time around and I felt like humanising Elektra and Clytemnestra to make them into sympathetic characters made them lose a lot of what made them interesting - I liked them more twisted and monstrous personally.

An excellent recommendation from @indiaro and my first georgette heyer! One of my biggest pet peeves is when romances have really rubbish one dimensional side characters and this one had such well developed, fun and interesting side characters. I loved the yearning and the gentle humour. I‘ll definitely be reading more by the author!

TheAromaofBooks I love Georgette Heyer so much and Frederica is one of my favorites. I just really love how her characters bring the sass! 😂 1w

This ended up medium for me. All the characters annoyed me and the side characters all felt SO one dimensional, but I liked the writing style and the pacing overall. I think I‘d definitely read another book by the same author and I felt quite swept up in the ending. I just wish there‘d been a bit more depth to the characters and that the main pair had been, well, desirable or interesting.

I‘m around halfway through this one and struggling a bit. I keep feeling like I‘m nearly enjoying it but the characters are just annoying me. It seems to be so popular though, I‘m wondering if anyone else had that problem?

Nute This has happened to me before. I was enjoying a book very much so, but could never form a fondness for the characters. It‘s okay if the characters are not suppose to be like-able, but what about when the characters are supposedly good people?🤷🏽‍♀️ 2w
KristiAhlers Yeah I bought this one too. Started it and put it back on the bookshelf because it just wasn‘t working for me. Which surprises me as I‘ve loved her other series. I was hoping it was just I wasn‘t in the mood for that book at the time. 2w

A Secret Garden | Katie Fforde

This was really cute and I loved the setting and the general vibe and atmosphere. I didn‘t love the attitudes to relationships 100% of the time - it seemed like people got very possessive on very early dates in a way I wouldn‘t appreciate personally? But it didn‘t ruin the book and I‘d read more by the author.

I really enjoyed the murder plot, I liked the twists and the pacing and the Antarctic setting was really atmospheric and creepy. Having said that, I really didn‘t need the focus on the MC and her substance abuse issues and unresolved feelings about her ex boyfriend. Those things weren‘t really gone into on much detail so it didn‘t really feel deep, just a distraction from the murder. I felt like that could so easily have just not been there

I didn‘t manage to find any Cuban food this month unfortunately, but I am using my last day in the Lake District with my boyfriends family to read this book set in Cuba in the 90s after the fall of the societ Union. I don‘t know that I love the book for the plot and writing but I am enjoying learning more about cuba, I think this is my first ever Cuban novel

I don‘t really feel I can hold it against this book that I didn‘t like it because it did exactly what it said on the tin. I suppose I was hoping for a post-Bridgerton read to fill the void but this crossed from silly and escapist to just quite wooden and bad. I‘m pretty permissive about historical accuracy and I don‘t get furious about people lacing dresses up wrong etc but this was Too Much For Me

Flawless in so many ways - the writing, the concepts, the structure. It was a masterclass in so many things that a lot of dystopian fiction gets wrong. Yet at the same time the bleakness really got to me and it was quite hard to make myself read because I found myself dreading turning the pages. The amount of absurdity and how futile so many things here were, and how the moments of tenderness got swallowed up by the bizarre world was hard to read.

A Farewell to Arms | Ernest Hemingway
post image
Pickpick

I haven‘t always seen eye to eye with Hemingway but I really loved this one. I don‘t know if that‘s this book being better than others or my mindset changing, but I liked the simplicity and the way the emotions kind of rose to the surface through the clipped, pared back sentences. The ending felt almost like a classical tragedy, knowing what was coming and not wanting to look.

The Queen's Gambit | Walter Tevis
post image
Pickpick

I never quite got round to watching the Netflix show, but I started the book on impulse and I loved it SO much. I haven‘t found a literary novel this compelling for a long time. I found the writing beautiful but never taxing to get through, and despite knowing next to nothing about chess I found the writing about chess so gorgeous. Beth was a phenomenal protagonist. Even when she did very frustrating things I always felt I understood her

mobill76 I just so-so'd the same book. I liked Beth a lot. I wish she wasn't fictional. I hope someone reads this book to a little girl who is gifted and inspired to compete at that level. I probably don't play any better than the author and I find master level chess completely baffling. I find women baffling, too. This felt too easy. I could've/should've learned more from this book. Viva la femme chess revolucion, though. 1mo

Ishiguro is often quite hit and miss for me, but I really liked this one! I didn‘t realise it was his first novel til I was a fair way through and I was impressed. I loved the subtlety and how poignant the unspoken emotions were. I can see how this aspect of his writing developed into the remains of the day, and I also liked how slippery the time periods were.

I normally prefer poirot to marple, and I still do tbh, but I really enjoyed this one! I liked the pace and the ending, which I won‘t spoil, but it was the ending I wanted that I thought agatha christie wouldn‘t have done. So that was a pleasant surprise and the creepy overgrown garden and tumble down greenhouse were so evocative

The reviews said this would make me cry and it did. It was definitely a hard read so soon after losing my grandfather.

Michelle‘s writing style is so special, confessional and honest without being maudlin or melodramatic. I loved the way she wrote about food and Korean culture as a Korean American and I felt so immersed in all of it

Reminders of Him | Colleen Hoover

I really wanted to like this but I just couldn‘t 😕 it felt a bit like a book length version of a PSHE lesson and the characters felt quite cardboard-y to me, more like they were going through the motions to illustrate a point than acting as characters. I found the writing style uninteresting and while I got into the story a bit towards the end, it was just a bit, and just at the end.

#twofortuesday @TheSpineView

1. I do! I read other things as well but classics are probably the things I‘ve read the most of in my life if I have to estimate.

2. I think I‘ve read a lot of the biggest classics but I‘ve never been able to face down moby dick yet. Maybe one day.

KathyWheeler Moby Dick was a problem for me as well. I spent 40 years avoiding it! A few years ago, someone on Litsy did a buddy read for it, and I finally read it! I actually enjoyed it. It was surprisingly funny in places and the relationship with Queequeg and Ishmael was great. It was boring in places — too much about the process of whaling and about ships — but it was good.

After a very busy workweek I‘m finally under a heap of covers in my huge pyjamas with the next Bridgerton novel. This is the only one not available through my library and I‘m being very strict on my book buying ban so I made myself wait for my birthday celebration ‘exception day‘ to get it. So now I‘m proud of myself for waiting AND in desperate need of relaxing in bed with some glorious escapism.

Quick book journal update on my attempt to scale #mountbr in 2022! I‘m on a quite strict book buying ban for another 45 days and trying to reduce my owned tbr mountain by 100 books in 2022. Here‘s where we are so far!

Reading through books I‘ve bought but failed to read helps me feel like I‘m earning back wasted money which is a nice feeling.

Hooked_on_books Good luck with your book reduction! It‘s a path I‘ve been trying to travel for years, and I finally found a method that works for me about 3 years ago. My goal was to reduce by 100 or more each year, but I haven‘t managed to get there. I have managed to reduce by over 50 for the past two years, so I call that a win! 3mo

It took me a while to understand what this book was getting at but once I did, I enjoyed it! I loved the cynicism and quiet wit.

Having worked in university administration, this was definitely relatable for me…

Yes this was very long. Very long. But I loved the slow immersive development of the story and the three central characters were all people whose brains I loved to be inside. For a Victorian novel I thought it was surprisingly not anti Semitic! It wasn‘t 100% not-anti-semitic but it pleasantly surprised me with its human, thoughtful, heroic Jewish characters.
