My #bookedintime for the Russian revolution tells us little of the revolution but a good deal on the minutiae of the last days & weeks of the Romanov‘s. Clearly a passion project of research this is only a soft pick for me. the research sang louder than plot or character - this may be because the set up of the novel is a man in his 90s recording his memories of something that happened in his teens but the story loosing something in his voice

This was at time difficult but very powerful story of a teenage girl coming to grips with the loss of her favourite uncle to AIDS and her general feelings of loneliness and lack of connection from her family. There‘s too much in here for the length of the novel - a storyline with her sister that is rushingly resolved, a parental backstory or two and the main storyline where she befriends her uncles boyfriend but for all that a good read

Jari-chan I really loved that one ♥️ 3d
marleed One of my all time favorite books! 3d

One to sit with for a while. The museum setting was fabulous and the tension and angst running through the hot summer added to the gothic feel. The storyline, tarot cards, divination and more could have been great but for the characters. Ann, the main protagonist is beyond bland and all the relationships and interactions felt forced and 2 dimensional. I ended up not caring as much as I could for either the mystery or the people

Caroline2 Yeah, this one just missed the mark for me too. 1w

This is a thoughtful and compelling story about 2 friends (neither of whom are easy to like) torn apart by the tragic consequences of differing views on vaccines. The author does well to make both sympathetic if not at times infuriating in their positions. The varied anonymous voices in the short italicised chapters also add more voice and colour.

Read as a book in translation for my own little challenge of the year. The language in this is at times distractingly over the top - sentences and sentences where a word@or two might have worked but because of dispute this I found this mystery about an aristocratic family dark and compelling. Galicia is at times a character with its unpredictable weather and folklore. Lots of trigger warning lots of deaths!

I wanted to love this. WW2, strong female protagonist, books … sounds 100pc up my street and yet unfortunate it was a very soft like for me. I was left with an overwhelming sense that thjs was a book I had already read and books that tackled the difficult topics better. There was almost too much happening here and that might reflect reality of scary, chaotic lives at war there was not enough depth to convince me. Would have preferred a narrower ⬇️

Itchyfeetreader Story. Either a deeper look at the girls friendships or Zofia and her mum would have been more compelling I think. Also … and this is a common complaint of mine on historical fiction - I don‘t think the epilogue added anything :-( 2w
CaramelLunacy Pity this didn't work well for you. I enjoyed two of the author's other WWII novels, so will probably keep an eye out for this at the library 2w

This is exceptionally researched and exceptionally well written and all sorts of horrifying. The story of the KKK startling and speedy growth in 1920s heartlands, esp Indiana. At the centre a deeply dislikeable man whose violence and hypocrisy eventually brought him down after a savage (TW described in detail) attack on a young woman. So much to reflect on, and perhaps learn.

Sneaked in another of @DebinHawaii recommendations for #auldlangspine2024 and I loved it. Heartbreaking story of friendship and family over the course of one summer in a neighbourhood grappling with poverty, gangs and it‘s actual eradication and the buildings are demolished. Powerful and both sad and yet optimistic. Beware numerous trigger warnings

DebinHawaii Glad you enjoyed this one! It is very powerful & moving. I am still working my way through The Huntress on audiobook (loving it!) & I will start My Monticello soon. Plus have a few others from the list awaiting holds! 3w

This was a hard read. Hard,dark, upsetting content that I would have given up on but for the fact the plot and storytelling was so compelling. I wanted to know what happened very badly but also feel like I need to steam clean my brain. Read for my own challenge this year as a Nordic noir it was defiantly noir !

Booked was my favourite reading challenge for how random but achievable it was for me. When I realised it wasn‘t running this year I co-opted my husband to help me recreate the same sense of challenge. He picked 18 ‘days of the year‘ and we then found someone who shared the same day as a birthday for 12 of them creating a 24 book challenge. No. 1 - a non fiction on a subject I know nothing about for world education day is proving to be dark.

Jari-chan That's a cool challenge idea! 1mo

Bought this in an airport last year but didn‘t get to it until my #auldlangspine recs from @DebinHawaii I LOVED it. June, the narrator tries to justify stealing her dead friends manuscript & passing it off as her own. We see her narcissism, her ‘i‘m not racist but in first person which makes her awfulness also kind of captivating. A satire of sorts about publishing, social media & cancel culture. Compelling

DebinHawaii I read this for #CampLitsy over the summer & really enjoyed it for the reasons you mentioned. Compelling is a great word to describe it! 1mo

My second of @DebinHawaii recs for #auldlangsspine2024 and it‘s another pick from me too! This is a really lovely, and occasionally laugh out loud romantic comedy following an author turned ghost writer who can see ghosts. I always think the best romance stories are really rich in secondary characters & scene setting and have something else to say; this has that in droves. wonderful underlying tale of familial love, great small town and more

DebinHawaii I really enjoyed this one so I am glad you did! 🤗🎉 I started listening to The Huntress on audio—I forgot I bought it a while ago. It‘s good! 1mo

So first up this has been on my kindle for eons and I don‘t know why I ever bought it. Secondly I had hoped it would be my Jan #bookedintime but it‘s 200 years too late and thirdly it‘s one of the most grown up children‘s books I have ever read!! With all that out of the way I absolutely loved this story about a young girl with no family and limited prospects who as second chamber maid joins her widowed lady on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem ⬇️

Itchyfeetreader As ever on a pilgrimage the journey is at least as important as what she find when she makes it. This is full of vibrant descriptions of fabulous places. amazing characters and a quite preen sensibility that doesn‘t feel out of place. I rated it 4 stars on Goodreads but may go back and update as one that I think will really stay with me 2mo

This is the first of the books off my #Auldlangspine pairing @DebinHawaii and I loved it. A period piece set post WW1 featuring a spunky female lead fighting for her place in a university staff who decides to investigate a poisoning. All the feel of a country house comedy with stoic policemen and an attractive but damaged male love interest this was fun in an enolaholmes sort of a way. I really enjoyed thank you !

DebinHawaii I am so glad you enjoyed it! (The 2nd book was excellent too!) I think this is a great example of why I love @AuldLangSpine so much because it was on the list from my partner last year @Laughterhp & that‘s how I first discovered it. Yay to @monalyisha ‘s bookish matchmaking skills! 🎉📚🎉 2mo

Reluctantly picked this for love triangle for my ongoing effort to stick with booked23 even though it‘s finished and I don‘t like love triangles. And yet here I am, crying a tad at what is really 2 love stories - one of 2 people finding their way to each other and their forever but also a great exploration of a female friendship - highs and lows and all. Or it‘s the 2 glasses of wine I had, because it‘s been one heck of a week !

Theee is no real plot just wonderfully drawn people and places until the town is the lead. Which is just as well as The main character is not introduced until a fir way in and then we lose her for 20 years of her life and what we see of her is not all that pleasant!

Exactly my kind of historical fiction. Rich plot, well drawn characters and things I didn‘t know. In this case both how tough it was to track down many who committed war crimes and also more about the fascinating women only pilot squadrons in Russia. You always know where this is going to end but the journey to get there has me begging for five more minutes reading last night like I was 7 again.

My husband and I have been listening to this book on audio for what feels like forever but have really finished the bulk of it on our roadtrip. It‘s little like 2 books - the first two thirds a historical and sometimes philosophical ref election on the development of liberalism - this part I would give 5 out of 5 to. The latter third is a reflection on the threads to liberalism with a real focus on growing nationalism. This section is also ⬇️

Itchyfeetreader Very good but Dunt‘s politics and personal voice shine through - if you agree with him it‘s sharp and powerful if you don‘t it risks being dismissed and that‘s a shame because he lends some great insights. 4mo
