Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt
review
Readergrrl
James: A Novel | Percival Everett
post image
Pickpick

I thoroughly enjoyed James from the beginning to end. James‘ voice and characterization were riveting and I grew deeply attached to his story. The characters he meets on his way to find his wife and child were simultaneously cartoonish and nightmarish! The Twain-like language of the first part of the novel quickly evolved into something surreal and deeply thought provoking. I highly recommend this novel! I see awards in its future! 5/5⭐️

Readergrrl I took this image from a Slate review of this novel: 4w
Sace I‘ve had my eye in this one. It‘s getting good buzz, but I take #Litten reviews more seriously. Hopefully my library will get it. 4w

Prodigal Summer | Barbara Kingsolver
post image
Pickpick

I just finished PS while vacationing in FLA. I enjoyed this read so much and remain in awe of Kingsolver‘s writing acumen! 3 interwoven stories taking place in a mountainous valley of Appalachia. I found myself tearing up and laughing out loud. Kingsolver‘s ability to put me in the setting is perfection itself! I felt like I was in this lush green world! A little late but I‘m mailing it on to the next person in #Round20 #LMPBC #GroupC 4.5/5⭐️

Readergrrl And I have Broken Monsters from Jenny on my nightstand to begin tonight. (edited) 1mo

Finally! I narrowed down my choices! Here‘s to a great final round of what I think is the best part of Litsy! #LMPBC #GroupC I‘m happy with any of these choices, so I‘ll go with the majority in this. If none of them peak your collective interest, I have many more to offer!

5feet.of.fury I tried reading Lauren Groff for author a month & couldn‘t get into 2 different of hers, but any of the others I am open to! 3mo

OMG! What a beautiful package to get in the mail during a long and dreary week!! I was so surprised! Thank you, Chrissy! You are so very thoughtful! I opened this a few days ago, but I‘ve been so busy that I‘m just now posting about it. The smells were scrumptious when I tore open that envelope! Is that bird seed to attract some feathered friends? I put the sachet right in my bedside table so I can smell it as I read in bed. Thank you!!!! 🌱🍊🌻🌿

Readergrrl And @Chrissyreadit I haven‘t forgotten that I will be posting pictures of my foraged treasures this summer to send you! 🍂🍄🌻🌼🌳 3mo

It finally arrived! Just in time for Christmas, so lots of quiet time by the fireplace for reading! Perfect! @BookishBelle I think I know what caused its delay. I can see it was meant to arrive weeks ago, but unfortunately, it looks like the package received some damage in transit: crushed cardboard and retaped shut, but just marginal water stains on the book. This little novel has had quite the journey! Time to give it some love! #LMPBC #Round19

In the Valley of the Sun | Andy Davidson
post image
Pickpick

If Cormac McCarthy met Anne Rice at a West Texas honky-tonk, danced a slow two-step while polishing off a bottle of tequila, they might dream up this novel. I felt like I was reading No Country for Old Men but with the tortured vampire souls born of Rice‘s imagination. While the plot might be seen as slow at times, I was fully invested in exploring the backstories and growth of each of the characters. I just love a morally grey villain! 4/5⭐️

Ruthiella Great review! 👍 5mo
Bookzombie I agree! Great review! 5mo
Readergrrl It‘s so funny, I avoid book reviews until after I read a book by an author I like (sometimes reviewers of multivolumeauthors aren‘t so kind). I read the book blurb on this after I posted here and my feelings on McCarthy and Rice were echoed there too! It makes me wonder if the author was heavily influenced by M and R and actually had them in mind as writing. The comparisons were very strong, evidently since many people clearly felt the same as me! (edited) 5mo
Readergrrl I also felt like The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt was an influence too; very similar introspection. 5mo
Reggie I loved this book a lot. Great review! 5mo

I felt like I was floating through Where the Crawdads Sing but with Victor LaValle as my swamp guide. Creepy, yet beautiful, I loved the tension, action, & thoughtful characterization in Davidson‘s writing. A deftly woven tale of horror, myth, murder, and gritty Americana, TBD is a book I‘d highly recommend for late night reading on a bayou. Was that a catamount or a woman screaming? Think I‘ll lock the doors and turn out the lights! 4/5⭐️

I‘m finally getting last round of #LMPBC book back to its owner! Sorry it took so long, but I added a treat to help sweeten its delay! I enjoyed this fast paced read and would love to see the Tundar landscape! I did get annoyed with Sena‘s actions but I‘ve come to believe that this is because I‘m old as dirt and have to really think outside myself to get some adolescent characters. I‘ll give this 3.5/5⭐️Thanks for sharing!

LibrarianRyan I agree. And I still have your book in entered hiding season and have so much mandatory reading I am not very far. I can send it back now if you want me to. 6mo
Readergrrl @LibrarianRyan Keep it until you can read it! It was a great book and I think you‘d like it! I‘m a firm believer in No-Pressure-November (and every other month too) and it would be fairly hypocritical of me to be mad over a late book. 🤣🤣🤣 6mo

I read this novel in just a couple of sittings and enjoyed it thoroughly! Not a cozy witch book, but also not too scary. I loved Corrag more, but Weyward was well worth the read!

Imaginary Friend | Steven Chbosky

I enjoyed listening to the audio book of this novel. The allegorical aspects of the main conflict were well conceived and I didn‘t find their use heavy handed. Chbosky kept me engaged with the plot and the suspense was strong to keep me listening without diving into horror overkill. I did find myself spacing out occasionally and I‘m not sure why. Overall though, I really did enjoy the story and would recommend it to others. A solid 4/5⭐️

Just got this in the mail today! I had so much fun reading this book! Chambers does such a great job of writing her characters with humor, sensitivity, and insight! Some might say that SciFi is too “out there,” but she proved that aliens, rocketships, and space travel are just as engaging, exciting, and humanly relevant as any Earthly novel. I loved each character and the adventure was fun & exciting! Eager to read the next in the series! 4.5/5⭐️

Readergrrl I should add that I received a package from @LibrarianRyan but I have yet to open it. I‘m up in Canada for the summer and my husband will be bringing it from CT here to me in Canada next week. I‘m looking forward to reading it!! 10mo

Corrag | Susan Fletcher
post image
Pickpick

I adored this novel. Semi-epistolary, this book tells the story of Corrag, an accused witch living in Glencoe, who warned the MacDonalds of the impending massacre by the Campbells and William of Orange. Based upon real events and people, this story was so beautifully written and both achingly bittersweet and philosophically pertinent to me that I‘m already planning a reread. The image reminds me of a trip I took to Scotland a few years ago. 5/5⭐️

Readergrrl @TheBookHippie Please, don‘t worry one little bit! It‘s always best to take care of yourself and family. I firmly believe that the beauty of #LMPBC is its flexibility and openness to trying new things. I‘ll be happy to read whenever it arrives! 11mo
Readergrrl @TheBookHippie I‘m not sure, but I think I received a package from you a couple of days ago. I‘m away right now, but I‘ll be able to get it after the 10th. 11mo
TheBookHippie @Readergrrl should be it! ♥️ 11mo

I simply adore my #Naturalitsyswap gifts! Those socks are the best! I will think of you, @TheBookHippie every time I wear them. Even my daughter said that they looked just like me! I can‘t wait to get outside and paint, but first I will be exploring the other books you sent too. Perfection!! #SummerSolsticeSwap #Naturalitsy #MidSummerSwap
