Fascism: A Warning | Madeleine Albright
post image
Pickpick

This was very interesting to me as I learned very little history in high school or college. She starts with Mussolini and describes how Fascism has grown and evolved through world leaders throughout history. Very readable and it points out how the average person may not notice the changes along the way to the destruction of democracy without blaming.

This was an awesome start to this series. I‘ve already put the next installment, The Sea Queen, on hold at the library. It‘s a Viking saga set in Norway. This is not my usual genre, but I loved the characters even the evil ones! It made me remember how much I loved Ken Follett‘s Kingbridge series and it‘s been compared to Outlander which is still on my TBR shelves! Loved, loved, loved this fun read! ❤️❤️❤️👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 5⭐️‘s for me!

This way just okay for me. I didn‘t hate it, but I didn‘t love it either. It‘s my first book by this author so I may try her again. I liked the feminist themes, but I‘m not sure I liked Greer or Faith all that much. I think Zee was my favorite character. Of the five that I read for the #makemereadit challenge this was my least favorite. However, all five were picks for me so it was a good reading month for me! 😃

parasolofdoom Oh man, I COMPLETELY forgot that challenge until just now 😂. Oops 10mo

Starting #5 in the #makemereadit challenge. I think I can finish it before Friday. I will have read 5 out of the 8 I put up for voting. Still no dent in my TBR because of course I bought and was gifted books this month. #bookitforward #jb #24B4Monday

I say I don‘t read horror, but I do love Edgar Allen Poe and now Shirley Jackson. I read The Lottery in high school and liked it so not sure why I never read more of her. Probably wasn‘t pushed as much as Poe. I don‘t want to say too much about this one as I was glad I didn‘t know too much beforehand. Loved it and read it in one sitting! 4⭐️s

TheReadingMermaid I love books like that where you can just sit and read it in one sitting. 10mo
Joyfulmimi Agreed! What a great book! I was letdown by her other book though. 10mo
Nute I like that you never really ruled out the genre in completion. Some books can be more eerie and haunting with a slight horror flavoring. You found your level of acceptability. (edited) 10mo

Tamra You make a good point about her not being emphasized. I have enjoyed what I‘ve read and the Lottery is unforgettable. 10mo
RebelReader @Joyfulmimi Oh that‘s disappointing to hear. I‘ll give it a go though at some point. 10mo
RebelReader @Nute I think you may be right. I actually think it‘s fantasy I don‘t like. Vampires and animals who appear as human etc..😬 10mo
RebelReader @Tamra I think I thought at that time The Lottery was all she‘d written and I was probably taken by the latest Danielle Steele or bodice ripper my mother had laying about the house! 🤣 10mo
RebelReader @TheReadingMermaid isn‘t that the truth. The last book I remember doing that with was The Kite Runner. 😄 10mo
Joy0201 This is my fave of hers. 10mo

A Ladder to the Sky | John Boyne

Pickpick

A day and a half into #24b4Monday and once again my reading totals are sadly low. 😩
Only finished this one so far and also trying to finish up Trever Noah‘s Born A Crime in audio.
The Boyne was a bit predictable, but I just couldn‘t stop reading it. He develops his characters so well and tells an entertaining story to boot. He‘s becoming one of my favorite authors after only 3 books. Yay! 😄

erzascarletbookgasm That‘s great! About the tagged book, I mean, and this cover is much better than the other one I‘ve seen. 10mo
RebelReader @ezrascarletbookgasm That‘s a pic off the internet, the ARC copy is plain black and white. This cover is much more appropriate to the story. 10mo
RebelReader I also want to point out that this book does raise questions about artistic ownership and intellectual property. 10mo

I always think I can do it, but then I read less than normal as soon as I join! Once again, I will try and break my streak of readathon crash and burn! 😜👍🏻

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

I love it when I need a jacket in the morning and evening, but warm and sunny all day. I‘m so enjoying this book! I always thought Kristen Hannah was a romance writer until I read The Nightingale and now this one. I think I had her categorized incorrectly. Another author who has a long backlist...Oh darn! 😝
