#bookspin #doublebookspin I really haven‘t found my reading groove so far this year. I‘m hoping the key is in here somewhere. I can‘t believe I have three celebrity book club picks on my list this month! I guess we‘ll see if I should get over my aversion. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Prairiegirl_reading @thewallflower0707 yes the winners is the third book. It‘s very very long (somewhere around 700 pages) so if you didn‘t like the second book then maybe this one isn‘t for you. 6mo

If I‘m honest I have to say that I struggled with this book. It took me an entire month to finish. I couldn‘t stay focused on it and wasn‘t always compelled to pick it up when I had time to read. HOWEVER, part six (the last 27 pages) wrecked me. It is absolutely beautiful and made the pace of the rest make sense and totally worth while. I DNF a lot but I‘m glad I wouldn‘t let myself give up on this one. Thanks “Past Angie”.

So far, I‘ve had a pretty decent summer for reading but it has also been full of disappointments. This was definitely one of them. To me, this felt like an outline to a really great novel, not a great read. It‘s short, choppy, and I didn‘t like the third person point of view. There were some very poignant sentences, a few laughs, and some gut punches. I can‘t “pan” it but I didn‘t love it as I was expecting. #unpopularopinions

My favourite book of the year so far! I first heard about this one in the Modern Mrs Darcy summer reading guide. I almost skipped over it but then I read what it was about and figured I better try it. It‘s not easy, breezy summer reading but it‘s EXCELLENT!!
The narrator‘s southern drawl is perfection. I had a hard time putting it down.

jlhammar Hoping to get to this one soon. Now I'm even more excited for it! 11mo

This book is far more sad than it is funny. I don‘t find mental illness “riotously funny”. Had this been marketed differently I may have enjoyed it more. It wasn‘t what I was looking for right now. I am still curious to see what Byron Lane writes next as this was well written.
#doublebookspin

Twainy I think he was Carrie Fischer‘s personal assistant for awhile & that weird dark humor is how she herself handled her illness. I bought this fictionalized book as a companion to Wishful Drinking which is a great audiobook but maybe not if you didn‘t like this book. 12mo
Prairiegirl_reading @Twainy I have read a couple of her books and enjoyed them. They were pretty much what I was expecting. This one wasn‘t. I was looking for something a bit lighter and I found this to be much more sad than advertised. I liked it to a point but I had to force myself to to pick it up. I found their relationship to be so unhealthy and sad. 12mo
TheAromaofBooks I get frustrated sometimes when a book's blurb/cover indicates that it's fluffier than it actually is - I've read several books that weren't bad books and that I would actually have enjoyed if I had been in the mood for them - dealing with more difficult/serious subjects - instead of in the mood for the happy story indicated by the advertising! 12mo

#bookspin One thing you have to know is that I hate it when my husband asks me what‘s for dinner. I almost drove off the road this morning as I listened:
“When he was young my father would, as all children do, ask the question, “Mom, what‘s for dinner?” His very sweet mother …. would respond with “Cazzi e patate” this translates directly as ⤵️

Prairiegirl_reading Dicks and potatoes. In other words leave me alone or bugger off as the Brits would say.” I‘m still laughing. Couldn‘t wait to get home to tell my husband who now swears he‘ll never ask me again!! 🤣🤣🤣 13mo
Prairiegirl_reading I‘m quite glad #bookspin pushed this to the top of my list. Thanks again @TheAromaofBooks for hosting. 13mo
SRWCF ??? I speak Italian and "patate" is also the word they use to refer to the vagina! 13mo

SRWCF That is definitely a funny phrase and I plan on using it the next time my Italian (born and raised) husband asks what's for dinner! 13mo
SRWCF @Prairiegirl_reading right?!? La patata is what they use for little girls and il pisello (pea) for little boys! Cazzi is pretty vulgar, tho! 😅 13mo

May #bookspin #doublebookspin
The weather has been so bad here in Manitoba. We are currently experiencing our third Colorado Low in three weeks, in a year where already more snow than normal. At least it‘s not more snow this weekend.We really do not need any more moisture but it‘s coming anyway. 😬😞
I‘m really hoping May brings outdoor reading weather! ☀️🌱🌷💐

Prairiegirl_reading @TheLudicReader I live in a small town right by the Red River so our ring dike is being closed off but we can still drive in and out so we are just a little inconvenienced.

Freedom: A Novel | Jonathan Franzen

I am currently culling my shelves. I‘ve already donated a ton. I‘m pretty proud of myself actually! I have had this one since it came out in 2010. It looks to me like a chunkster about people I imagine I‘ll have a hard time liking and I‘m guessing it‘s fairly bleak, none of which I‘m very interested and in right now.
Might future me like it? Or at least finish it?
You decide! Keep or donate?

EvieBee I donated my unread copy, too. 1y
vlwelser I learned a lot about birds and how bad humans are for the environment but hated this overall. Donate. 😂 1y
Ruthiella I thought it was pretty good. It‘s the only Franzen I‘ve read. All the main characters are pretty insufferable, however. 1y
See All 6 Comments
RaeLovesToRead Keep!!!! Franzen does social commentary so so well. The characters aren't likeable but they are exquisitely well drawn. I would describe the tone as sardonic. 1y
RaeLovesToRead Although if you're after an uplifting read, I agree, this isn't it. 1y
Chelsea.Poole Loved this book. Made me a Franzen fan. But I listened to the audiobook which was excellent. 1y

Not loving this at around 20%. I‘m definitely considering bailing. I got it from a list of books that are like Eleanor Oliphant. The rec said quirky characters which this definitely has but I thought Eleanor was a loveable character and not finding that here.
I don‘t usually track my DNFs but I think I might this year. Do you track your bails? Do they count for your challenges?

IndoorDame I do track my bails on Litsy and Goodreads/StoryGraph, but the only challenge I count them towards is #bookspin and #bookspinbingo Do you have a link to the list you were talking about, or any recs from it? I loved Eleanor! 1y
Prairiegirl_reading @IndoorDame I also loved Eleanor! 💜 1y

IndoorDame @Prairiegirl_reading thank you! I added some of these to my TBR! 1y
Prairiegirl_reading @IndoorDame I had read and enjoyed a few other titles on this list too so I‘m pretty disappointed with Ellie and the harp maker. 😕 1y
IndoorDame @Prairiegirl_reading I‘ll definitely skip that one then. Too bad, the synopsis is promising. Though the litsy rating isn‘t. 1y
ravenlee I track my DNFs in my journal so I have a record of books/authors that didn‘t work, or if it‘s something I might come back to at another time. I give myself credit for the pages read if it‘s around 50+, and I count it for #bookspin or any other TBR-tackle-challenge, because it gets the book off my list. 1y
Prairiegirl_reading @ravenlee I really need to start a journal. I always waiver on how to set it up and then I never do anything. I just track my finished books on goodreads and now StoryGraph also. I would really like a paper copy but I want it to be pretty! Lol!! 1y
Prairiegirl_reading @IndoorDame I first heard about it on the currently reading podcast and then it came up on audible‘s daily deal so I grabbed because it does sound charming but 😬😬. I didn‘t check Litsy or anything until today when I was considering bailing. Should have checked before buying!! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1y

Over the last while I have been binging Rupaul‘s Drag Race. Basically, if it doesn‘t involve drag queens my brain can‘t handle it. So when this was an audible deal I thought “Graham Norton, the drag race judge?” (I know he does lots of other things but…) Low and behold, it‘s that Graham Norton. I had no idea he writes fiction! I was very impressed and I will read more. This is the first book in a very long time that I couldn‘t put down.

1. I have been in a book club with my mom for almost 20 years.
2. We choose books by suggesting books we want to read, not ones we have already read and recommend. I like this because then no one gets their feelings hurt by bringing something they love that others end up hating. One I really loved was Water for Elephants. Also Ragged Company.
3. The conversation is most often more interesting when we don‘t all love something IMO.

tokorowilliamwallace A few years ago, one of the Catholic young adult professionals parish-specific groups I was in was kind of like a book club, and then when I moved to Baltimore, I scattered myself around a bunch of groups again and so had a couple or a few more Catholic groups reading a succession of books a followed along with the South Baltimore book club which had four separate meeting groups which met at different times for wider participation. Now, 0. 1y

Prairiegirl_reading @Tera66 thanks!! I was on track for my best reading year ever (in terms of numbers) and then my reading brain just shut down. Over the last two months I think I‘ve finished 4 or 5 books. I‘ve been watching rupaul‘s drag race instead of reading but I‘ve been thinking about what to read next to get out of this slump. I think I have to stop over thinking and just pick something up, so instead of over thinking the list I just picked randomly. 🤞🏻🤞🏻 2y

I loved this!! Richard Wagamese is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. This starts out with a very graphic bull riding accident and then a rape and I almost DNF‘d it. I decided to try again and then I got sucked in right away. I would recommend the print version as opposed to the audio though because it changes perspective without any heads up and was a little hard to follow at first.

I listen to the get booked podcast weekly so when Amanda went on about The Switch I thought it sounded like something that I wouldn‘t normally read but my pandemic brain said YES! And I loved that one. When she recommended this as a read alike I thought PERFECT! I guess September pandemic brain and April pandemic brain are different because I hated this one. I have nothing good to say about it.

Ruthiella Why do you think that the podcast recommended it as a read alike? 🤔 2y

I‘m giving this a pick but I didn‘t love it. It is problematic AF but it also has great character development and strong sense of place. And then it‘s insanely long which it didn‘t need to be IMO. I laughed in a lot of places but I hated the ending!!! However I‘m sure it will be one of those books I‘ll remember for a long time. Struggling to put a star rating on this one.

marleed Oh gosh that happens to me - when I‘m so proud of finishing a classic chunkster that I didn‘t love but really wanted to read. 2y
Prairiegirl_reading @marleed yeah exactly! I‘m pretty sure it‘s the longest book I‘ve ever read and I am glad I read it so that makes it head and shoulders above the last chunkster I read (the goldfinch). And also it‘s only April and I can check off my chunkster goal for the year! 2y

Prairiegirl_reading @Tera66 I had been prepared for a lot of death and I was driving when the worst thing happened so I didn‘t cry but I said no no no a lot while I drove!! Lol 2y

Coffee is life. I am one of those people, I can‘t go without it. Always dark roast and black, hardcore!
Then when it‘s wine time it‘s red wine 95% of the time. The occasional craft beer, never hard stuff.
Trying to drink water in between.
Consider yourself tagged if you‘ve gotten this far 😄

1. I‘m going to have to say Dumbledore. I really thought she was going to bring him like a Phoenix from the ashes, oh well. 😢
2. I have a bad habit of not remembering the endings of books or movies. 🤦🏻‍♀️
3. I am surprised how much I am enjoying Lonesome Dove! I always put off the chunksters but this was my choice for this year.
Thanks again for the tag @mandarchy

Prairiegirl_reading @marleed the only reason I didn‘t cry was I was convinced she‘d bring him back!! Lol 2y
Hooked_on_books When I saw a few of these posts earlier, my very first thought was Dumbledore. 2y

1. When they call you a terrorist just really stuck with me. Also I have to add that Mariah Carey‘s bio was so fun on audio.
2. I haven‘t read enough of James Baldwin but I think I would call him a master.
3. I don‘t think I have one. I‘m not sure I‘ve read more than one book by a non-fiction author. 🤷🏻‍♀️It‘s more about the topic for me when I read nonfiction.
Thanks for the tag @mandarchy
