Between the pundits this week and my complicated relationship with Mother‘s Day, I have been mostly self-isolating and spending time with my dog 🐶♥️ and this book was a help in both regards! I was pleasantly surprised at how psychological this was - it isn‘t the murder(s) but instead the mental decline of the characters that provides suspense and I was enthralled! Fun #aam choice 👍🏻 #authoramonth2022

The Sentence | Louise Erdrich

My favorite read for the first quarter of 2022 is Erdrich‘s The Sentence! This process is inspiring some angst, however 😅 so many good books, and it‘s so hard to choose between books of different genres and styles!
Thanks to @chasjjlee for the idea and template!

The Cruel Prince | Holly Black

Pickpick

April was a good reading month (1 bingo! Yay!), and I seem to have kept up pretty well on #aam, #roll100, and #bookspin/#doublespin! Favorite challenge read was, surprisingly enough, the tagged YA politics and fantasy set in a faerie realm. I didn‘t love the formulaic YA-ness of it all, but the resolutions and reveals in the last half were slightly unexpected and therefore interesting. I would read the next in the series, and I didn‘t expect that!

#audiowalked this #aam book, and have to say it wasn‘t a total success for me, although it did make me think more about issues of plot ownership and how much the talent of the writer stands on its own when asserting ownership of a story than did the fairly similar The Plot.

I don‘t know what to think about King‘s latest novel, a one-last-job homage, war story, and straight-up thriller. I can‘t tell if it was any good, or if King‘s writing is good enough to keep me reading no matter the subject matter. What do you all think? Was it good?
I did enjoy all The Shining references, I guess…

I made March tough on myself by starting a number of books without paying attention to their due dates. So many disappeared from Libby when I was partway through, it was embarrassing!😅
so a lot of these are back on my April list… but I did finish #aam, one #roll100, & #doublespin 🤷🏻‍♀️
Tagged is my favorite read from this month - a great short Poe retelling with passing nods at Mexican Gothic and Star Trek. Love it. Bring on more horror!

Everything about the February part of this bracket was hard! I am not good at determining between fiction and nonfiction on my own arbitrary “what is better” scale. In the end, Overground Railroad won out bc it was such an impressive mix of heartfelt anecdote, detailed historical research, travel and Americana, and footwork. It builds an incontrovertible case for the surprisingly detrimental effects of desegregation and the war on drugs. Read it!

ReadingOver50 Where did you get your bracket template? I love it. 2mo

Slow reading month in February, comparatively. Which might make joining NetGalley a bit of a misstep 😂. The tagged was one of the arcs I got and enjoyed: it‘s an anthology with lots of submissions of varying mood that all use classic monster characters or themes as jumping off points. Lots of great stories! Except for Manzetti‘s, so I‘ll be avoiding him in the future.
Finished #bookspin, doublespin, and one bingo! 🎉

This fictionalized witch hunt based on a historical witch trial gave me anxiety 😰
I can see where there is satire, and the narrative is extremely clever, but the pure accumulation of spite against an old woman wore on me anyway. So, #unpopularopinion here, I think. Anyone feel like trying to win me over?

Ruthiella Often I feel that way about books too when the plot or characters make me too anxious. But I liked this book on the whole. I may have checked on Wikipedia first to make sure Katerina wasn‘t burned at the stake. 😬 4mo
Larkken @Ruthiella ooh I definitely do this too. Even if the outcome is sad or what I didn‘t want to happen, waiting to find out about it can be way worse. And this is why I mainly watch cooking shows on tv… 😅 4mo

I am nope-ing so hard on this. It some how reads like a man from the 1970s ghost-wrote this as Allende. What the heck is going on? Is it just that this serial killer thriller is way outside Allende‘s usual genre? I chose it for #authoramonth because I thought I‘d try something different from her as she‘s not my favorite. Hah. I guess it was an easy one to check off my list, at any rate! And 15 pts for #wintergames2021!

The unremitting romantic melodrama of this book! I liked parts of it very much, but some was a bit much and I found it predictable. Also, the treatment of women was def ick. You know how when you spend a long time in another culture and the way others act around you, while culturally appropriate for them, just makes you miss home? Yeah, this book evoked that pretty strongly for me.

Favorite book from this week is the tagged true crime that focuses on the Indigenous woman who searches for the missing and helped uncover corruption on her reservation. Lots of great detail on the reservation history and the oil boom on reservation land that led to this corruption, and the author‘s voice is lovely and meditative.
