Prairiegirl_reading @readinginthedark how old is your baby? I never had kids and this puppy is our first. I‘m 45 and I‘m so tired! I don‘t know how people handle having kids. Or kids and dogs! Lol! I hope you are doing well! 😄 19h

Rage Becomes Her | Soraya Chemaly
post image
Pickpick

I loved this!! This book is so relevant and timely. Very well written, interesting and thoughtful. Lots of statistics but easily accessible.
I got this from the Libby app but I will need to own a paper copy for reference. I know I will go back to this one. I find this happens when I listen to really good non-fiction. Does anyone else do this? #nonfictionnovember

Megabooks I‘ll own a book on Audible and then check out the ebook from Overdrive. So sort of 😊 6mo

Bad Feminist | Roxane Gay
post image

At 13% on the audio and I feel like I‘m not connecting with this one. Why is she talking about SCRABBLE?? Am I missing something? Is this called bad feminist because feminism is not really what this book is about? Am I being too quick to judge?

RaimeyGallant I liked this book, but I LOVED her book Hunger. 8mo
Prairiegirl_reading @RaimeyGallant I did read Hunger and thought it was good. I bailed on this one though. I think it just wasn‘t the book I wanted it to be. I was ready for rage and this was so clearly written pre-45 that it seemed almost out of date. To be fair I did bail early so I may totally wrong. I‘m going to try eloquent rage instead. Seems more of what I‘m looking for at the moment. 8mo

I Let You Go | Clare Mackintosh
post image
Mehso-so

Part one of this book was fast paced and compelling. Part two was....... repulsive. I hated it and couldn‘t wait for it to be over but I was so far in that I felt I had to find out what happens. Clare Mackintosh writes unlikeable characters very well so I‘m giving it a so-so but honestly if I had known where this was going I wouldn‘t have picked it up in the first place. Another #unpopularopinion. I think that‘s the theme to my reading year!

RaimeyGallant I had to let this one go. ;) 9mo

Audible daily deal. Worth it? I‘ve read reviews saying creepy and good and some saying not. I was creeped out by The Bear and a little bit by The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore so I‘m thinking I might be overly creeped out.

I am giving this a “pick” because it was very compelling but it could have been a lot better. I know some people don‘t like the non-linear structure but I liked that. I just think the author could have delved deeper into each character and the ending was very abrupt. It felt unfinished to me. I still enjoyed it more than a so-so. #summerreading

The Fireman | Joe Hill
post image
Mehso-so

Don‘t get me wrong, Joe Hill is an exceptional writer. This book however, is waaaay too long and far more graphic than it needed to be. I liked a lot about it but those two major issues mean that I‘ll have to give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Kate Mulgrew‘s narration of the audiobook is fantastic, just like Nos4a2.

Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo | Taylor Jenkins Reid

I actually listened to all of The Seven Wives of Evelyn Hugo (I usually abandon stuff I don‘t like) and I rolled my eyes so hard and so often I thought they were going to stay that way! I also really didn‘t like Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah but it gets great reviews. One more: I can‘t understand why I don‘t love The Night Circus but I just can‘t finish it. #unpopularopinions @Libby1

MoBee Hated Night Circus, In the Dark, Dark Wood, The Shack. 11mo
Prairiegirl_reading @MoBee I kinda want to hug you right now! Soooo many people LOVE the night circus and I just think it‘s boring! Have you tried any other Ruth Ware books? I haven‘t tried in a dark, dark wood but I have a couple others on mount tbr. 11mo

Someone recently posted a question about a character you‘ve wanted to slap and at the time I couldn‘t think of anyone.

Sooo good!!! I had been putting this one off because I thought it would too sad. It is absolutely heartbreaking but I can‘t stop and I‘m glad I started it. I love books about families throughout generations and this is very ambitious to tell the stories of two half sisters in Ghana and the generations that come after them. I can‘t believe this is Yaa Gyasi‘s first novel.

Wow! This is such a short book that packs a powerful punch. The audio is great. I unintentionally listened to most of it at 1.5 speed and I should have slowed it down sooner because the pace of the verse is perfect at regular speed. Sometimes authors shouldn‘t read their own work but this is not one of those times. Jason Reynolds is great!

I‘m just happy to be finished this! I bought it on sale on Audible even though my first instinct was that I probably wouldn‘t like it but I‘d heard and seen lots of positive reviews so I went for it. A lot of my dislike for this book could be the narrator who just did not resonate with me but also I can‘t stand a break and get back together then break up again tale! I wonder if it‘d be different on the page. #unpopularopinion #audiblesalefail

BookishMarginalia Sorry to hear that! I really enjoyed this one. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 14mo
Prairiegirl_reading @BookishMarginalia did you do the audio or physical book? I‘m just wondering if it might have been audio. 14mo
BookishMarginalia The audio, which I loved. But although I was annoyed at the characters breaking up, I‘m not particularly annoyed at that trope. That might be a difference. 14mo

I can‘t remember the last time I read YA non-fiction. Not sure I ever have. 🤔 Anyway this is super interesting. The writing is very straightforward. It‘s almost like reporting. The chapters are very short. However, there are so many interesting issues to be discussed. Also I think that I am very opened minded and accepting and I found the “they” pronoun difficult to get used to. That surprised me. Overall though an excellent book.

I devoured this. I can't say what I was expecting but it wasn't this. It is outstanding. I'll be returning to this I'm sure and I am not usually a rereader. Donna Tartt's narration is fabulous also.

tricours I didn't know Tartt did narration! 2y
Prairiegirl_reading I didn't either. I had to check it was 'that Donna Tartt'! She's fantastic and there is an essay by her at the end. 2y
KVanRead Just started this and loving it. She also did a fantastic narration of her book 2y
Prairiegirl_reading I believe it. I should check that one out on audio. 😄 @KVanRead (edited) 2y
