I had a busy day today, so I hit my indie bookstore yesterday. The sad part is the two shops I enjoy shopping at got all sorts of exclusive goodies, but for today only. Stupid work. Here was my haul from yesterday.

Kent Dobson isn‘t a household name, but his predecessor Rob Bell is. Dobson followed after Bell as the lead pastor of Mars Hill until one day he realized he was just pretending. He no longer believed and wanted to exit. This is a good introduction to historical criticism in regards to the Bible. Mainline churches have done it for year, but for evangelicals who proclaim an inerrant Bible, this is career ending. Nothing new for me though.

This is a true story about a tennis instructor who was obsessed, stalked, and attempted to kidnap one of his students. Told in a back and forth type style, jumping in time, and narrators. The difficulty is it is a short story, but fluffed out to fill more pages, so lots of telling and retelling of candy shop outings and the like. The good was it all took place around where I live and visited, so I knew the locations.

This has been the book I have referenced and recommended the most since reading it. It is not fluff as might be expected, but rather an exploration of the psychology of hate using online trolls, Neo Nazis, a former terrorist, etc. It is funny at times, but explores some deep truths about hate, such as we don‘t recognize it if we feel justified by our opinion. Well written and fascinating.

Readage Sounds interesting! Added to the TBR! 1y

There is a lot to like and a lot to dislike in this one. This is a retelling of Othello set in 1970s DC in a 6th grade classroom (like). It takes place in one day (dislike). The setting helps shape some of the strange leaps that Othello makes and makes them more palatable. The racism is ramped up, but to be honest I wonder if it would have been stronger if an author of color wrote it. I liked the school setting, but it was similar to the movie O

I may get a little hate, but I have to be truthful, I liked this, but I didn‘t love it. The reason why I didn‘t love it was there were a few too many cliches in it. I don‘t want to spoil the book, so I am going to be general- we can figure out what will happen to the college friendship as soon as that item appears, she idolizes a bit too much and we will know what happens, and we know the relationship can‘t last. It was good because of the writing

MelissaS It‘s so disappointing to dislike a book that gets so much hype! 1y
NerdyRev @MelissaS That could be the case too. I was very excited for this, so maybe expectations were too high? 1y

This is a well written book with a premise you have heard before. At heart, it is a revenge/elimination story with a father picking off gang members who placed a hit on him and his daughter. The storytelling though is told from 3 perspectives- the father, the daughter, and a police officer following the case. It is the father daughter story that drives the story. She thinks she has been kidnapped not understanding his love. Worth it.

I wanted to wait a few hours, but congratulations to Mark Sakamoto for winning this year‘s Canada Reads. I read the other 4 books and kept putting this one aside. Just goes to show you. I said on day 2, I don‘t think the US will ever have a show where people cry defending a book. One celeb donated 50 copies each of two of the other books to his local school system. Time to read this one. I had American War or Marrow Thieves as my picks.

LeahBergen I really enjoyed the panel this year and how passionately they defended each book. ❤️ 1y

Spontaneous | Aaron Starmer

File this one under a good so-so book. It is not great, it is not bad, but it is good/ok. It has a great premise-teens spontaneously combusting and it has a snarky, jaded protagonist. Somewhere though I just stopped caring what happened. Rushed romance, blurry message, and maybe too much snark lost me after a bit. I sped through the last few pages to see why these teens combust (spoiler/answer in comments). It was good for the first half.

NerdyRev It is left open ended, so no reason is given which disappointed me more. 1y

Holy crazy train, Batman! I almost gave up on this one midway, but glad I didn‘t because it goes off the rails in a delightful way. An unreliable narrator is the best narrator, IMO and this one doesn‘t fail. She will change the story slightly, so pay attention. I‘ll give a hint, if you are thinking of quitting, get out of the hospital and pick it up from there. Trigger warnings too for rape and sexual assault. Good read though and good twists.

This book just lives up to the hype- it is raw and the writing is just incredible. Definitely a top 10 contender for this year. It is a difficult story though, as many Native stories are, so don‘t look for a happy ending. Warning- Sherman Alexie not only wrote the intro, but plays a part in the narrative as well. Don‘t let that stop you though.

This is a series of essays on various psychological issues which are then connected to DT. They try not to make any direct statements, but lay out here is what narcissism is (for example), here are some signs, and here is some evidence we have around DT. Some are old essays. The scary thing is, this was published October of last year and it has gotten worse. A truly scary book.

I enjoy Marie Lu‘s writing, but I was not a fan of this one. For a start, it is not a “Batman” book, it s a Bruce Wayne book. Yes, he does detective stuff, but not as the Bat. The other is it isn‘t very exciting and it is pretty telegraphed. One point when something was introduced, I said to myself, this will be used against them later and sure enough. The rumor was she wanted to do a Nightwing/Robin book instead. So-so.

Karkar I wonder if that is why I liked I- because it was a Bruce book instead of Batman... a Robin book would have been great! 1y
NerdyRev @Karkar I think I would have preferred a Robin book as Bruce/Batman‘s lore and backstory have been pretty well told at this point between Gotham on TV and the comics/movies. 1y

A nice book with the focus being on the theme of seizing the day. An odd couple coming together in their last moments on Earth as they learn about each other and grow in their last moments. It is a bit too long at over 400+ pages as the reader gets the idea fairly early. Being a bit tighter would have elevated the story a bit. You know how it will end too, but it still worked.

What a strange little Sci Fi mystery. As I was reading it, some of my friends asked me what it was about and I couldn‘t ever quite describe it. It is a detective mystery with time travel and a race against the end of the world. Most times, it is a normal mystery, but something happens which shifts everything. I can see this not being for all, but I have not read something like it and enjoyed it. Such a dull cover for a creative book.

I have read memoirs of funeral directors and they tend to be incredibly interesting. I have never read a faith memoir from the funeral director perspective though and I found it uplifting. This does use Christian language, but I believe it might connect with those struggling with faith as he fights against some of that hard line Christian language quite well. It is a book on death and the death process too, so expect some tough scenes.

Kaye I like reading about this subject myself. Some memoirs I‘ve read that follow this same subject are Good Mourning , and The Undertaker‘s Daughter , if you have yet to read them , both are quite interesting . 🙂 1y

I have a feeling this is one of those books which I did not enjoy, but will be recommended all over the place. I could not get into this one though. The pacing was incredibly slow and not much happens. While the book opens with a suicide, it takes more than half the book to come to the meaning of the act.

Red Clocks: A Novel | Leni Zumas

I am going to start here- this is not the sequel to Handmaids as promoted. It is a very good book on motherhood, abortion, and a “what if” universe. Told from 4 perspectives- a pregnant teen, a natural abortionist, a teacher looking to get pregnant, and a wife who‘s kids are insufferable, the four will interact with one another in this world where abortion is banned. It is great feminist lit and worth your time. It can be slow at times.

Cinfhen Just started this! I'm completely drawn to all four stories...and I'm finding the writing really smart...I've snorted and chuckled several times 1y

UrsulaMonarch @Cinfhen good question! 1y
NerdyRev @Cinfhen I figured it had to connect with the Buddhist tradition spoken about in the book. Each woman has lost babies, so to speak, yet all the women are without names. The book speaks to naming the lost whales‘ children. Just my thought. 1y

This was one of my most anticipated books for this year and it was not a letdown at all. The writing is so well done and the story is compelling. I tore through this one. Told through various perspectives and even switches prose style at one point. Such a great story on the complexities of love, marriage, and family. The main 3 characters are deeply flawed characters just trying to make it in life.

My pick for Canada Reads did not make the shortlist, so I scurried to read the 5 remaining. I have 2 more to go, but of the 3, The Boat People has the best chance against American War. This deals with the complexities of the Canadian immigration system as 300 refugees arrive seeking shelter. Told from various perspectives, this does not paint the system in a positive light, but also points out difficulties. Tough going against American War though

NerdyRev Having to pick between AW and TBP, this one is more Canadian centric, so this is my new pick. 1y

Wow, this is a very strange, but so worth it book. It is difficult to describe as it is part robopocclypse, part goddesses, part magic powers, and some drug use type book.

There is a lot to draw from in this book. This is primarily a biography, but delves into a long history of police aggression against African Americans within her story. How one is shaped into being an advocate and one to start the BLM movement is incredible. The big problem of this book is the writing. If you are a grammar person, the book will challenge you. There are also style choices that just don‘t fit such as use of strange periods. Worth it

The great news is the hype around this book is real. The better news is the 2nd Falk adventure is out next week. This is a slow moving mystery which is more small town character study than anything. One could feel the town in Australia, but it could be any small struggling town, except for the heavy use of the word “mate.” Good look at town secrets and rushes to judgment.

The problem when your in your 5th book with a character that barely survived being great for 3 Books is the character‘s flaws really show. Black becomes almost a middle schooler with the insults and the premise gets a little silly. The same thing happened to the Dexter Books. I thought this was better than the last one, but is far from the Black I enjoyed in the 1st book. One more book after this, according to Wendig

This was one of my most anticipated books for January due to the premise. After the initial chapter with the premise- kids learn their death dates, the book breaks down into almost separate short stories. They are loosely connected as characters float in and out of each other‘s stories, but the section focuses on that person. The great tiny joy is most stories, especially the third take place in my backyard as the author went to Vassar.

This was a great look at creativity and the distractions we use to hamper that creativity. The book focuses mostly on screen distractions- apps, selfies, games, etc. I have been trying some of the activities in he book and some are difficult, but freeing in it does show addiction. I removed the FB and Twitter app from all my devices, for example, and even though a browser can be used, I got to those sites less often. Good read.

The premise- original sin did not exist for 400 years in Christianity and the words never appear, so why do so many churches focus on sin?

I needed a palate cleanser after reading two books on Trump and this whole week. I got this one for review and it was a delight, if not a bit of propaganda. It is Biden‘s biography “lite” with some slogans of his thrown in. As much as I love VP Biden, some of his more controversial aspects as Senator are completely ignored. Even though it is for adults, it is for about a 4-6th grade level. Definitely for fans of Joe.

This is a short book, but a great look at loss and death and the wide range of feelings and actions around them. It is told from a light skinned African woman who does not fit in anywhere really. It is about relationship, death, and mourning, but it is almost poetic and just flows. Chapters range from a sentence to a few pages. There is a surprising amount of sex in the book about death, which was one of the releases for the character. Well done.

I love a fun, quick thriller and this fits the bill. A murder happens to a young girl and years later memories flood back as to what may have happened that night.

This is tough, as a book, this is too short. I read it all in less than an hour. As a short story, it is good.

This is a Canadian centric book, but the lessons within are universal. Another #canadareads long list book, this explores the death of 7 Native youth who died under mysterious circumstances and were written off by police. Deep seated racism, a long history of abusing Natives, and a high suicide rate within the Native community lies at the heart of the story. Very good, but tough to get through. It shows racism in Canada.

I will start by stating teen romance is not my genre, so I am acknowledging I can‘t really compare this to anything, but lit. fic. rom. What I enjoyed was the peek into a Muslim teen‘s life-What was important, rules, and even a romance that cannot be. What was tough was her love of foreheads, the high drama (which does happen to teens, I know), and the big scene that one was waiting for during the whole book just fell flat for me. #canadareads

Notafraidofwords Love of foreheads? Lol 2y
NerdyRev @Notafraidofwords Yes. It actually plays out in a few scenes. When she likes a boy, she judges by their forehead size. 2y
