The Feed: A Novel | Nick Clark Windo

Geeeeeezus! Idk what it is about this book. It is boring my eyebrows off. 😬 @TrishB How are you doing with this one?

TrishB I gave it a so-so- but I nearly bailed in the middle as it got very boring! It‘s not the best dystopian novel I‘ve read!! 7mo

Tuesday‘s Book because it‘s taking me forever to progress through Six Four. I‘ve listened to three hours in 3 weeks.

Theme: I‘m tired and my kids don‘t let me read all the books.
What are you all picking up today?

TobeyTheScavengerMonk My kids are also continually preventing me from reading all the books. What‘s their deal anyway? (edited) 1y

Reese_Pearly.Pages @CaliforniaCay @Redwritinghood So I‘m definitely not as far as I want to be. Had my baby last week and that threw everything off. Got the audio too, so maybe I can finish it soon-ish. 1y

Goldfinch | Donna Tartt
Mehso-so

Litsy!! I‘ve been away for so long. Life has been happening 😥 I wanted to like this MORE, but the way she wrote Boris was awful! The broken English approach was executed poorly in my opinion. The audiobook narrator had a terrible fake accent. It was god awful. The overall style and cast of unlikable characters was classic Tartt. 3.5 stars! Would reread, but not anytime soon. (Paperback/audio)

Hooked_on_books I would give this a so-so, too. I feel like the whole Vegas section could go and it would make for a stronger book. 2y
Reese_Pearly.Pages @Hooked_on_books I think Vegas definitely could have been shorter. The whole Amsterdam (or wherever they found the painting) section can go. Theo being there was a little pointless. It was a drag and a little... stupid. 2y
sprainedbrain This was a so-so for me, too. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y

The last few months have been terrible reading months. I don‘t think I‘ve finished more than one book in two months. I haven‘t started any either.

At least I‘ve finally made some real progress on The Goldfinch. 56% complete.

This wasn't a 5 star read as I'd hoped. Leonie was the most interesting part of the novel for me. I don't know what it's like to have a drug addicted family member. Her character was well-developed. We understood her pain and her past. Jesmyn made her MORE than just a "junkie" or a "terrible mother" and I appreciated that. People judge addicts harshly in our society. It's important not to dehumanize them. Overall 4 ⭐️stars!

I'm halfway through this novel and I like it so far. Anyone else reading it? How do you feel about it?

Redwritinghood Not yet. Still don't have it yet, but looking forward to it. 2y
Reese_Pearly.Pages @Redwritinghood Leonie frustrates me and breaks my heart at the same time. Her chapters are the.. emotional ones? Not sure I'm describing it right. It's a good read so far. 2y
readordierachel I read this not too long ago and really loved it. Definitely heartbreaking. It gave it so much depth to see things from both JoJo and Leonie's perspectives I thought. 2y
LauraBeth Just finished it! I know exactly what you mean about Leonie. I‘d get so mad and frustrated at her and then I‘d get to her POV chapter and almost want to cry for her. 2y

Should I come back for book 2? "Nah." Would I say this a must-read? "Nah." It's no secret I generally don't like books with multiple POVs. This just wasn't a great book. Too many people and not a fan of the type of "romance" the Fuller's pursued. ?? ??⭐️⭐️

TheLibrarian Thanks for sharing your review. I had high hopes for this book ☹️ 2y
Reese_Pearly.Pages @TheLibrarian I really did too!! There was too much melodrama for me. Too many people- if you like multiple POVs this may not bother you. Parts of the story didn't really connect because of the various social classes she tried to include. She had POC, but their voices came across "white". Overall it was meh. 2y
Merethebookgal Yeah, I feel ya. I read this for a book club, but it's just not my style. I don't feel compelled to pick up the 2nd book because I just don't really care about any of the characters lol. 2y
