Ehhhh....I liked most of it, but I thought it slowed down at the end and it was only 100 pages.

Was this book well-written and grammatically correct? Not particularly. Was it enjoyable? Kind of. Was it what I needed right now? Absolutely! I didn‘t have to think much about it, and although there are holes and inconsistencies in the plot, I still found myself wanting to know what happens. I have the next two books, so we‘ll see where the story goes from here.

Whoa! Talk about triggers! This book deals with a school shooting from the perspective of 17 different people. It was really good, but sad at the same time. #LMPBC

Reading this one for LMPBC and it‘s making me sad. Doesn‘t help that it‘s a gloomy day! Also in the middle of The Goldfinch for a neighborhood book club. Another uplifting read!

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane

Week 5: 30/120 minutes of exercise; 8/10 books

Sorry guys! I have fallen off the face of the Earth. School started here and it‘s been crazy. The past couple weeks just didn‘t happen. I am back on track for this week, though!

Week 2: Only 35 minutes/120 of exercise; 3/6 books

Week 3: 60/120 minutes of exercise; 6/6 books

Upping book goal to 10.

I am a little late here and I don‘t know how to make one of those cool collages, but here are my goals for #BFCRound3.

1) Exercise at least 120 minutes per week
2) Read 6 books during the 6 weeks - I am getting ready to go back to school, so thought this would be realistic

This is a pick for me, but I can see how it wouldn‘t be for some. This is supposed to be a treatise on female desire, but for me it was more about women being taken advantage of by men. Sad, and at times depressing, I still feel this is an important read.

The story that made me the most angry was Maggie‘s. Maggie was taken advantage of by her teacher. Not only did he ruin her life, he also ruined the lives of her entire family.

TheBookHippie I agree with you. All the same thoughts! 3mo
Meghan1 @TheBookHippie I am a teacher, so that story just killed me!! I had a college professor like that. Looking back on it, he was trying to groom me, but I was clueless. 3mo
TheBookHippie @Meghan1 we had this happen at our High school. Teacher got 30 days in jail and he admitted it... ugh. The girl will never be the same. I had an art teacher like this I was clueless as well .. 3mo

Meghan1 @TheBookHippie, we just had a 5th grade teacher from my school arrested for viewing and sharing child porn on his home computer. We were all in shock. It makes me sad that, despite all the fighting we have done for equal rights, women, in many cases still don‘t have a voice. 3mo

I just finished this one while running. I enjoyed it, especially Libra Bray‘s essay and the one about the girl who brought the preserved cow eye to school. When I was in 7th grade, I found a dead mouse on our front walk. My dad (a dentist) helped me preserve it in a jar and I took it in to my science teacher! 😂😂😂😂

I LOVED this book! I especially loved that it features an autistic woman. My son has high functioning autism and I feel like I have tendencies, but have not been diagnosed. It‘s nice to see a representation like this, that is quite positive.

Reviewsbylola I really wanted to love this, because my daughter also has ASD and I love the representation in popular fiction as well. I really hated the over abundance of sex though—it felt superfluous to me and took away from the story. 4mo
