Mehso-so

This was a strange book that although it had a lot of potential, somehow fell short of what it was trying to achieve. Equal parts sad and humorous, this story was like a sci fi version of Office Space. What if you had the chance to live your perfect life all while living in the mundane? With many great one liners and insights sprinkled throughout, I held out hoping the story would pan out, but instead it fell flat for me.

Things You Save in a Fire | Katherine Center
Pickpick

This is the third book I‘ve read by Center and while I can say I enjoyed it, none of them have held a candle to How to Walk Away. This one, set in a fire station, had a fairly predictable premise once you got past the initial setup. Although I sometimes crave a good predictable rom com, I do like a little more build up- when writers make readers work for it, so to speak. Everything here came a little too easily, given what they could have done.

This is the second book in what I suppose you could now call the “Class Mom” series. Now I hope there‘s a third because I really enjoy Gelman‘s writing style and can relate to her sense of humor. With a somewhat self explanatory premise, this is a nice, light read-perfect to offset so many heavier reads out there. In fact, with such a relatable premise, I‘m surprised it hasn‘t been explored more often.

Good news pen pal friends! I think I‘m all caught up with my letter writing! A few pens lost their lives in the process and I‘m sure I‘ve given my carpal tunnel a run for its money, but did I mention I‘m finally all caught up? Look for letters headed your way. If I didn‘t get back to you and you think you wrote me a letter, let me know. Some may have gotten most in the move, but I tried hard to keep track!

Mrs. Everything | Jennifer Weiner
Mehso-so

This had the ingredients for the perfect family saga, spanning generations, but something didn‘t gel right with me. I felt like there were too many details and not enough, all at the same time. It‘s not a super long book, but it felt like it in parts that grew redundant. Alternating back and forth between two sisters viewpoints, you got to know both of them pretty well. I particularly had a hard time sympathizing with one daughter, Lila, however.

LiteraryinLititz This is a really helpful review. Thanks! 3w
Purrfectpages @LiteraryinLititz you‘re welcome. I‘m curious to see what the rest of my book club has to say about it. 3w

Where I End and You Begin | Preston Norton
Mehso-so

With being distracted by this summer‘s move, one thing that‘s taken a hit is my reading. That being said, I only thought this book was ok, but it could also be because I was distracted and couldn‘t really lose myself in the story. I just found it confusing, although it was a somewhat original take on a familiar trope. It was one of those odd cases though where I could see myself enjoying a big sceeen adaptation more.

The Unhoneymooners | Christina Lauren
Pickpick

Another hit from the Christina Lauren team! They are slowly becoming my go to in terms of light and fun beachy reads, even when you‘re not at the beach. Although they‘ve been around awhile, they‘ve really seemed to hit their stride in the romantic comedy niche. Nothing ground breaking or new here, just good old fashioned escapism.

Kimberlone I just finished this last night and also really liked it! 2mo

I‘d like to think so! What are your thoughts?

Mindyrecycles 1,000 percent. Arguments to the contrary annoy me. 😂 Print-onliers looking down on e-reader fans seems to be a real thing. 2mo
Kappadeemom I use both according to where I am reading. I don‘t understand why folks get so upset over it 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Meghan1 @Kappadeemom me too. I enjoy reading print and on all my devices. My e-reader fits in my purse and can go to the gym with me to use on the treadmill. 2mo

Lcsmcat I‘ve read the same book alternately on paper or a screen depending on how hard the wind was blowing. 😀 2mo
Soubhiville I mostly read print, but use kindle while traveling and for really big chunksters just for ease. 2mo
Dragonfairykats I read both because of the books I get from the library 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I very rarely use my kindle 🤷🏼‍♀️ just biased to the real thing! 📚 2mo
justanothermusing Anymore I use my Kindle more and more. My eyes just are not what they use to be and Large Print books are to expensive and my Library does not carry that many. The only thing I really miss is signed additions. " Hey do you mind signing my kindle just does not sound right. 2mo
TCLinrow @Soubhiville same! I like the convenience of ebooks for travel (and the knowledge that I wont tun out!) but you just cant beat an actual book 2mo
Purrfectpages @Mindyrecycles @Kappadeemom @Meghan1 @Soubhiville I agree. Can‘t we all just get along? 2mo
Purrfectpages @Dragonfairykats @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I must admit, as a converted ereader I do miss my physical trips to the library! 2mo
Dragonfairykats @Purrfectpages Using Kindle Unlimited I don't always get to buy the books I want, so off to the library I go. I've been reluctant to buy from a used bookstore since I only have my bedroom for any storage 2mo
Dragonfairykats Yikes! Hit send by accident. I finally found a library wagon that looks like I can put books in, and that I can sell/give books to the used bookstore as long as she doesn't have it on her shelves 2mo
kathedron Paperbacks are still my favourite but I do have a soft spot for my ancient kindle (and have recently splurged on some new books for it). 2mo
Wonderwoman89 I love both. It is easier to take a kindle to work but I love to read actual books at home laying in bed 2mo

Anyone else struggle to get through season two? I was underwhelmed by the first season, but the second season just feels so drawn out and unnecessary based on what I‘ve seen so far. 🤷‍♀️

Megabooks I watched and liked season 1 but not as much as the book. Not sure if I‘ll watch season 2. 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I enjoyed both seasons. But it's definitely different from the book. 2mo
Birdsong28 I have just finished season 2 and can totally agree with you and when you get to the end it just seemed rushed and I was like oh right it's the end as it just didn't seem to feel like an ending although it did leave it on an interesting note. 2mo
Purrfectpages @Birdsong28 so should I even bother finishing it? I‘m hearing there won‘t be a season three... 2mo
EKonrad Agreed! I was totally let down by season two. 😢 2mo

review

Mehso-so

This was a surprisingly brief book that read like a play. It examines the difficulties in a modern marriage with lots of self deprecating humor, as Hornby is known for. What held me back from loving it was how neurotic the characters were and how little we actually got to dive into their marriage, due to the book‘s short length. It felt like a missed opportunity for Hornby to tackle a common tale with more attention and depth.

No power here in New Jersey since about 6pm last night due to an unexpectedly powerful storm. I wish I could say it will be up and running soon, but there‘s no guarantee of that. Luckily the temperatures have gotten cooler and the Kindle is charged for a bit. Hoping that will hold me over some.
