Little over halfway through, enjoying it so far.❤️ Growing up in fundie "courtship" culture, romances by authors from more conservative backgrounds is much more relatable to me and I get rather emotional cheering for them to break free while empathizing with the fear of losing family and community that you love very much.

You know how people joke that 50 Shades would be creepy and gross if the dude was some ugly hick instead of a suit wearing businessman?

This is that story, and I'll never unsee it. It gets points for gorgeous packaging though.

My March reading summary! I read 13 books and can't begin to pick a favorite. (Illuminae, On the Come Up, Cruel Prince, Woman at Point Zero- how can I choose?!) The one I enjoyed least was Conspiracy of Fools but the author is a great person with a spicy twitter.

BethM @TsundokuAleax that makes sense I guess. I‘d rather think of it as it‘s own story. Makes more sense to me. 2mo
Purrsistently @BethM I didn't know it was supposed to be one either till recently! There's been a couple of new b&b retellings released lately and that made me want to go read all the ones I could find. 😻 2mo
TsundokuAleax @BethM I get it. They author is kinda smart in the way she turns the whole thing on its head. I love how you settle into this world and realize how skewed the view was. Also the parallels between the guys and who the represent is more visible when you go back and reread it. It doesn't really play out the same way as b&b but you can see it better. 2mo

Ooh look, the part where my family got hit. (My dad worked for Arthur Andersen, I was in second grade when this down and remember being hauled out for a demonstration of all the kids who would be thrown under the bus if the company couldn't be saved. Welp.

Purrsistently I'm not sure why I thought it would be fun to read about twerp enron accountants who all get $250,000 *bonuses* in 1980s money for sowing the seeds of the destruction of my family having any modest financial security. 3mo
Purrsistently Or the CFO who was a disaster but they KEPT ON PAYROLL even after replacing him with another CFO who also gets an astronomical salary because you wouldn't want your worthless friends to have to actually work for their millions. This book may turn me into a communist. 😹 (edited) 3mo
Purrsistently My God. Pretty sure these twerps could feed and house all our homeless veterans with just the money they throw about to placate their most useless employees who were actually harming the company. 3mo

cariashley @Purrsistently thank you. We were very lucky - it was early in his career, I had a steady job and we didn‘t have a family to support. I shudder to think of all the people who weren‘t so lucky. 3mo
Purrsistently @Chrissyreadit yeah❤️ this story is so gross. I'm not sure I can take 700 pages of it😬 3mo
Purrsistently @cariashley ❤️❤️❤️we were lucky in that my dad was just a programmer who worked on their techy stuff and his whole dept was purchased by another company so at least he had *A* job afterward but nowhere he's worked since ever treated its lower level employees as kindly as AA did and certainly didn't respect work/life balance on the same plane at all. 3mo
Purrsistently AA told him he'd be fired if he didn't stay home with his post partum wife when she had each of us no matter what the company had going on that week. They treated people like human beings. 3mo
Quippe Sorry to hear this. I knew a number of people who worked for AA and they spoke highly of it as an organisation. A lot of advisory firms got sucked into the Enron b-s at that time (I was working at a firm that desperately wanted to work for it but luckily never made the cut). 3mo

Puredragonstar I have a question? Does this end on a cliffhanger for the next in the series? Or does it give you a solid ending so we can wait for the next one? Hope your feeling better! 3mo
Purrsistently @Puredragonstar it didn't feel cliffhangery to *me* but that could be a bit subjective. I do want to know what happens next and am concerned about various characters but you're not left wondering if someone died or anything like that. 3mo

Twelve Angry Librarians | Miranda James
Panpan

I had a hard time believing this was written by woman, googled the author and found that "Miranda" is a pseudonym and these are in fact written by an old white guy from Mississippi. The protagonist's pay and cost of living made no sense and did not enjoy the serial sexual assaulter who is caught in the act and "encouraged to move on" rather than you know, arrested- tho at least that is realistic.

Purrsistently The MC works a part time job and somehow pays not only a mortgage but HOUSEHOLD SERVANTS that serve him breakfast in the morning and yet he can't buy a tie because he's too poor? You can get a tie at Ross for $4. What the heck are you paying your HOUSEKEEPER IF YOU CAN'T BUY A TIE. 3mo
Purrsistently What part time librarian has household servants?! 3mo

BibliOphelia Ugh. Male writer of cozies writing under a female pen bane is so cynical. If you write good stories/characters, no one cares what your gender is. 3mo
Purrsistently @BibliOphelia yeah, it left a bad taste in my mouth. I get when someone creates a character that is part of the experience, like Lemony Snicket, and I get needing to mask your identify as an oppressed group, but pretending to be another demographic presumably to make those people feel safe with you feels gross.

A couple of my favorite snippets of descriptive writing " I could see to the red river where it burned between the foothills. Bloated clouds rolled in overhead, snarling like shadow wolves. The wind whistled, tasting of moisture and foreign lands and the distant brush of midnight." "Liquid landscapes, rippling like pale honey below azure skies. Milk white plains beneath cobalt mountains. Thrones of amber, drenched in blood."
