Quichotte | Salman Rushdie

Not the most readable book. I‘m tempted to bail because I have The Testaments waiting for me at the library. But the current cultural references abound and are fun, and was surprised to find this philosophical musing coming from The Bachelor/ette 😂

The Wall | John Lanchester

I don‘t usually love man booker nominees, and expected this to be slow and dry, but found it quite the opposite. Dropped in a world ravaged by climate change, I was completely engrossed in the story and all the questions I had - who are The Others? Where is the setting? What happened? - drove me to read ahead. Even though many questions went unanswered, I found this a very satisfying and enjoyable read. #manbooker

This is probably one of the busiest weeks of the year for me since I work at a university and classes start next week, but it‘s all the more reason to spend my time reading in non-work hours! There are a few books I really wanted to get to this summer and this seems the perfect chance! #SummersEndReadathon

Among the slew of domestic thrillers I‘ve been reading, this one stands out. With complex characters, it makes you think about how perception is everything. The way this story unfolded was really interesting, and I found the ending pretty satisfying.

Help! I was trying to clean my TBR here on Litsy to take out books that I already own, and I didn‘t see a way on the app nor the website to just remove books, so I just changed them to read (which makes me anxious because I haven‘t actually read some of them!). Does anyone know if there‘s a way to remove books that we‘ve tagged as Reading, Want to Read, or Have Read???

In Paris with You | Clmentine Beauvais
post image
Pickpick

I feel very lucky to have been able to read most of this while in Paris. This is my second Beauvais book, and I want to read all of her work now. The format was different with this book - lyrical, but it didn‘t detract at all from the story. It was written from a unique perspective, and while part of me wants to be cynical and pragmatic about this love story, I was in Paris, so I let myself just give in and be swept away by it, and it was lovely.

Current reading location (Marseille, France). You‘ll notice lots of hills! My stair flight count has been pretty great. For #BFC this week, doing so much walking still has me hitting my fitness goals. I look forward to incorporating biking and swimming when I get home next week. I‘ve also finished two books. I‘ve got some catching up to do there! #BookFitnessChallenge

JanuarieTimewalker13 That‘s so cool. My health data app says under 5000 steps is “sedentary”. I‘m a firm believer it‘s gravity that really helps us be fit. Getting up and down and not sitting for long periods...spurts of activity is key. I never read whole book, it was due back at library, but what I read was excellent (edited) 5mo

Vacationing in Paris has had my #BFC fitness goals met easily with all the walking and flights of stairs through the metro. Reading time, however, has been sorely lacking, so I have some catching up to do there. Today‘s bucket list item: seeing Monet‘s Water Lillies exhibit. #BookFitnessChallenge

When you find yourself thinking, “I can‘t wait to finish this so I can move on to something else,” it‘s time to bail. Amber Tamblyn is a badass. No question about that. But this felt like a celebrity memoir regurgitating the events of the #metoo movement. What I wanted was a collection of insightful essays. Not to relive all the gross moments of the last few years, from a lens that was full of name dropping and unrelatable. #itsnotyouitsme

Between a pick and a so-so. Perhaps not the best in audio format, as the timeline skips around so much. This got me thinking about so many interesting ideas. And the end was probably one of the most interesting I‘ve read/heard. I didn‘t expect that at all.

The Stranger Diaries | Elly Griffiths

Books, mystery, creepy gothic atmosphere... I really liked this one. It would make for a perfect fall read. It also references The Woman in White and Wilkie Collins a lot, which I happened to be finishing, so that was fun. A little underwhelmed by the ending, but a fun read that I would recommend nonetheless.

After 4-5 months, I have finally finished this!!! It‘s strange to me that it was both a good read AND a slog to get through at times (I think mostly because of Collins‘ need for every detail to be given). The other book I‘m reading right now, The Stranger Diaries, is referencing this book and Wilkie Collins a lot, so that‘s fun.

I picked this book up at the library on a whim because I‘m headed to France in a few months and want to be transported there now. It‘s not a smartly written YA book, but it is a lot of fun. It definitely gets better at the halfway mark, when the mystery part overpowers the annoying mean girls part. And it did take me to Paris. History, mystery, and Paris = ❤️. “Let them eat cake...and die” goes the blurb on the back of the book 😂😂😂

Panpan

I thought this would be one of my favorite suspense books this year. Instead, it receives a rare pan. The characters were okay, the premise was interesting and promising. But it was like being stuck in a room listening to the same conversation for 8.5 hours. Maybe that was supposed to be the hell of it. The story just didn‘t go anywhere for me, and it wasn‘t suspenseful or scary or even creepy. I kept waiting for the big moment. It didn‘t come.

I received this a year ago from the generous @MinDea but have been putting it off because I know it‘s a heart breaker and I don‘t step into that willingly. But between the #monthofBoyne and thinking it could be a cathartic read, I finally decided to jump in. The epigraph and first paragraph had me laughing and hooked me right away, so I‘m not as scared and am looking forward to the ride! Boyne‘s writing has captured me already at just 24 pages.

Mehso-so

I‘m not sure whether to give this a pan or a so-so. I found the characters incredibly irritating but reviews assured me the end was worth it. The last half hour listening did have me gripped and I didn‘t quite see it coming, but I‘m not sure 8.5 hours of maddening characters were worth it, so... 🤷🏻‍♀️

rjsthumbelina I gave up on this one...and I just realized, I don't think I added it to my goodreads total last year! I did make it about halfway, then skipped to see what the big reveal was. And then I was glad I hadn't wasted my time, bc I didn't like the ending, either! I read it for one of the postal book clubs, and the rest of my group enjoyed it! I didn't understand... 10mo
JamieArc @rjsthumbelina That‘s what I should have done. Apparently a lot of people really liked the twist enough to recommend it, but it definitely felt like wasted time spent, and I hardly ever feel like that. 10mo
