I‘m excited to start reading from the #NewYearWhoDis list from my match @Cinfhen (though I‘m not in a hurry for January bc I need my holiday break!). The ones on the top are my priority, especially the first two bc I own them already. The rest on the collage I‘ll read once they are available at my library, and I‘m sure I‘ll read others from this list in 2022.

I‘ve read Z already and liked it a lot. Thanks for this match @monalyisha

Megabooks We did read a lot of the same books this year @Cinfhen ! Great list! 💜👍🏻 I‘d say you two were well matched @MallenNC 😁 5d
MallenNC @Megabooks We‘re definitely a good match! I‘m looking forward to reading from this list. 5d
Cinfhen I‘m glad you already own some books and im happy you found others that peaked your interest. I definitely recommend going audio for the Grohl, Bourdain and Lawson!!! Happy reading 😘 5d

Cinfhen I can only think of two or three from this list you may not have read @Megabooks but I‘m pretty sure you‘d like them!! 5d
BennettBookworm @Cinfhen Guncle was also on my list!! 5d
Cinfhen Definitely the MOST heartwarming book I read all year @BennettBookworm 5d
TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen great list! One Armed Sister was on my list too, so emotionally powerful. I can't wait to read The Storyteller, but I've got like a 6+ month wait for the audio. And I went and put it on my Christmas list so I have to stop myself from buying it every time I'm at the store! 5d
Cinfhen Im not even a fan of the Foo Fighters or Nirvana but I‘m TOTALLY fanning on David Grohl @TheKidUpstairs he came across as SUCH a GENUINE GREAT guy!! And he‘s really an awesome storyteller ❤️‍🔥 5d
TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen I'm only a casual fan, but I always love seeing him interviewed and I watched What Drives Us on Prime and just fell in love with him. Like you said, just seems like an awesome guy! 5d
wanderinglynn I‘m reading Broken right now. 👍🏻 3d

I was drawn to this cover and started without reading the description or even the subtitle, so I didn‘t know what it was about. It follows Suleika through her cancer diagnosis and treatment and then her road trip after. She‘s a good writer who has a compelling story that she tell in an honest way. Its interesting without trying to be inspirational. I hope she writes more.

1. I‘m in the middle of several books but I started the tagged one yesterday and can‘t put it down.
2. This is silly, but today a friend send me a TikTok of someone putting a tiara on their cat and the cat‘s face made me LOL. It looked like, of course, I am a queen.
3. My biggest pet peeve is when a book says something like “she let out a breath she didn‘t know she was holding” or “someone was screaming, turns out it was me.”

This is a favorite cozy mystery series. Lana Lee is a great main character, and the author makes the most the setting, an Asian shopping center in Cleveland. Her descriptions make me want to visit those shops, even though the center has had more than its share of murders! I‘m glad I still have a few left to finish before I‘m caught up to the series.

SamanthaMarie I love this series too! I think I'm on book 4? I need to get caught up as well. 3w
MallenNC @SamanthaMarie It‘s fun! This is book six. I just checked and there‘s only one more out. But book 8 is due in January! 3w
SamanthaMarie Oh boy, I'm definitely behind then. I will blame our move to a new state and having a baby on that haha. I've fallen behind in almost all the cozy mystery series I follow. But this holiday season is the perfect time to catch up 🥰🍂🌲 2w
MallenNC @SamanthaMarie Either one of those alone is a good reason! I read the first couple of these and then left of the rest for no real reason until recently. I‘m trying to catch up on series, but then of course I hate to have to wait on the next one! 2w

Apples Never Fall | Liane Moriarty

Pickpick

First of all, yes this book is too long. But after I got over that I did enjoy it. I was uncertain about how it would be resolved, which kept me turning the pages. It probably also helped that I like tennis so those details were good to me. The resolution of the mystery required some suspension of disbelief but I did like how she tied it all together and the ending was satisfyingly creepy.

This is such a fun series. Veronica and her grumpy companion Stoker are a very will they or won‘t they couple up to this point. The mystery in this one wasn‘t as interesting to me, or maybe I just missed some of it as I was listening, but by the end I was excited to see what happens in the next book. Luckily it was on the shelf at my library when I picked up other holds! I‘m hoping to make time for it this weekend.

1. The Ramona books! I loved them, and they were still good when I read them as an adult.
2. Cold rainy days when I have an excuse to just stay in and read without guilt, but really I read in all weather.
3. That I got to see the Atlanta Braves win the World Series! They were my daddy‘s team and I grew up watching them with him. He passed away when I was in college, and watching the series brought back good memories.

My last read of October, which I finished late last night. I love Wiley Cash and this one didn‘t disappoint. I especially appreciate all the details of its setting in Oak Island, North Carolina, a place I know well. The ending really got to me. No spoilers, but I saw where it was going in the final chapter and I think my heart rate went up.

I don‘t know why I love Sally Rooney but I do. Somehow she makes me care about her (often pretentious and always angsty) characters and their problems. It took getting through a couple of the email chapters to get into this one, but then I really liked that device. I liked digging through Alice and Eileen‘s thoughts on the Bronze Age and recycling to pull out threads on what was happening in the storyline.

I liked this because I like Duran Duran but something about how it was written made it a little flat. I‘m just slightly younger than the original Duran Duran teenage fan base so some of this, especially the very early years, was new to me. I prefer John Taylor‘s autobiography to this one, but it was still fun to read, and then to go back and listen to the songs along the way.

Though I had read Kindred, this was my first time reading Parable of the Sower. It is disconcerting to read a dystopian novel that is is set in our (now very near) future, and it isn‘t far from a believable possibility. Butler was very prescient in talking about what extreme environmental issues could lead to. The main character, Lauren, is a compelling character. The religious elements were less interesting to me, but they did make a good frame.

Harlem Shuffle: A Novel | Colson Whitehead
post image
Pickpick

This was a great change of pace that was not as heavy as Whitehead‘s last two books. I absolutely loved The Nickel Boys but it was a hard read. In this one, the Harlem setting comes alive, and the main character, Carney, is so great. It‘s been described as a heist novel, which I think oversells the action. Carney sells furniture when not involved with less legal activity, and he mentions the furniture everywhere, which is fun once you notice it.

This was perfect for the Halloween season. It is a mystery as well as a ghost story. I thought the setting was used really well, and I liked how she built up the characters in both timelines. I listened to the audiobook and some of it was legitimately scary to me. I‘m probably never going to go to the ice/vending area of a motel alone without worrying about some ghosts.

I love watching Vera and Shetland, the TV series based on on Ann Cleeves‘ other books, so I was excited to get to start a new detective series from her. This second book is just as good as the first. I love the setting in Devon, the main character, his husband, and his unusual upbringing. I think these elements are going to make for a great series so I‘m looking forward to the next one. And this is also being made into a TV show for ITV/BritBox!

I really enjoy Catherine Steadman‘s thrillers. They‘re easy reads, and good on audio. It‘s especially fun bc she‘s an actress who reads them herself. I think this one was the most fun yet, even though I wanted to shake the main character several times! I‘d be a terrible character in a thriller because I would have left the missing person‘s stuff with someone else at the first opportunity.

Catching up my September reviews! I wasn‘t into this book at first because I don‘t really like fictionalized oral history but I ended up really enjoying it. I think this was better than Daisy Jones & the Six, which it is of course compared to, because the story was deeper. I want to know who inspired these characters. I wish Opal were real.

I‘m so glad I read this book slowly as a buddy read so I could take it in. I can imagine going back to it and reading parts again, almost like an encyclopedia. Because I know there is more I can learn on subsequent readings. It‘s so interesting to see the people and parts of history that were chosen to represent each timeframe. So much of what this book covers echoes in issues the US is still struggling with today. #400Souls

My first completed book of October isn‘t even on my #BookSpin list. (Yay for free spaces). I read this series out of order which made me know more about the storyline about why Cormac doesn‘t fit in with his new police colleagues than I should have if I‘d read this first book first. I did still like the main mystery, and agree that this is a good series for people who enjoy Tana French. The audiobook narrator is great.

This book, the first in a series that I wasn‘t familiar with, reminds me a bit of Sujata Massey‘s Perveen Mistry series. Like that series, it features a smart young woman who wants a life that is outside the usual of her time and culture. The mystery itself took a while to get to its conclusion so the real appeal is the setting and the MC. I would like to read another in the series to see how it unfolds.

Like anyone old enough, I have strong memories from 9/11/01, where I was, how scared I felt. One of my best friends was living in NYC and I was frantic to know she was safe. (Thankfully she was, and every 9/11 since she takes cookies to her local fire house).

That day and the days after showed us the worst and very best of humanity. Sending love to everyone on this day that‘s still so hard even 20 years later.

If you‘ve ever watched an Ancestry.com ad and wondered what your test might find, this book makes you ask if you really want to know. The main narrative thread is about Alice, who finds something surprising in her results. Along with stories of other surprises, the book also has chapters are about the history of DNA tests, the ethical issues surrounding these tests, what ethnicity really is, and more. I‘ll be thinking about this for a while.

The Road Trip | Beth O'Leary
post image
Pickpick

I‘m giving this a “pick” but not as strongly as for the author‘s previous two which I loved. The idea of two exes on a road trip with three other people is a good one, and there were funny moments. But Marcus, the friend, is just awful and the fact that he‘s Dylan‘s closest friend was not in Dylan‘s favor! My main issue is a spoiler I‘ll put in comments.

This is my #DoubleSpin for September @TheAromaofBooks

MallenNC The reason for the couple‘s breakup is that Addie gets sexually assaulted but before she can tell Dylan, he believes the worst about Addie until her sister tells him the truth. I really hated that and honestly didn‘t find it forgivable so I wasn‘t rooting for Addie to take him back. They needed to find closure and move on! 3mo
TheAromaofBooks I started to read this one a couple of months ago but just couldn't get into it - a disappointment, because I really enjoyed O'Leary's first two books. It was due back at the library so I sent it back unread. It's still on my TBR for someday, but it didn't capture me like her other books did. 3mo
MallenNC @TheAromaofBooks I think if it had been by a different author I might have been more forgiving. 3mo
