Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront

I'm so glad I chose to revisit this book and re read it. I enjoyed it when I read it for school but I loved it this time around. I think being older allowed for me to truly appreciate the authors skill in conveying the devestation and raw emotions of the characters. It is a credit to an author who can make you feel so invested in a story even though you don't really like most of the characters.

The first half of this book was ok and then it became dull and unbelievable. I liked the stories from the past better than the main plot.

The Book of Etta | Meg Elison

Mehso-so

These are the 2nd and 3rd books in 'The road to nowhere' series. I liked them but not as much as the 1st book, 'The book of the unnamed midwife'.
They brought up a lot of different ideas about gender in a world surviving and evolving after being wiped out by a deadly plague. The story and characters needed work they felt under developed.

This book was devastating and it made me have an ugly cry more than once! It is the story of friendship and heartache of two strong women who live in Afganistan. I was surprised that it was written by a man.
This is a book that will stay with me and is one of my favourites for this year.
Thanks @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for the recommendation.

This book is described as a feminist dystopian novel.
I loved it!
Some kind of illness wipes out society, of the survivors there is 1 woman to every 10 men. Because of this it becomes a very dangerous place for women and they are often taken as sex slaves. This book covers very dark themes.
It is the first book of three and I will definitely read the next one.

Well now I know why this book has so much love on Litsy. I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. I had forgotten how much I enjoy historical fiction.
It was very interesting to hear how women helped shape world war II, we tend to forget the important role they played and how brave they were.

This book was a pick but I only liked it, I didn't love it. Although a lot of the writing is beautiful.
Yes it's a story of a dysfunctional family but I felt like the author had a check list of every possible bad thing that could happen and checked them off one by one. Because of this it didnt ring true.

Ok I really liked the story in general but I hated the writing style. I felt like Bradbury just threw a whole lot of book quotes in there to be clever, which I found just confused me. This book only took him 9 days to write and I feel like that shows, it feels under developed. I actually enjoyed the authors foreword and afterword more than the book itself.

Well Georgia Blain has struck again. An absorbing story with rich characters and beautifully written.
I picked this book up at a secondhand bookshop for @MrsMalaprop and I thought I should read it before I passed it on. Well I'm so glad I did! I read this book in 2 sittings.
The theme of this book is that well meaning parents can neglect their children in many ways and sometimes the effects can be devastating.

Wow, I loved this book. It is narrated by a galah named Lucky who lives in a country town in WA leading up to the moon landing in the 60‘s. I loved the Aussie slang and references including Emu bitter, Jatz crackers, lamingtons, EH holdens and wooden salad bowls with matching servers. Everything about this story and it‘s characters were just so Australian - quirky, flawed but loveable. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

‘Upstairs, gaining strength by the second, lay Quinn‘s inheritance, left to the father from the son: an old woman suddenly missing home.‘
This is the story of a boy, a son and his relationship with his father and his friendship with an elderly lady of 104.
This book made my heart sing! The ending was just perfect! The characters felt so real and they made me cry, smile and cry some more.

Mahatma Gandhi once said that the weak could never forgive. That forgiveness was an attribute of the strong. (pg 301)

‘What have you brought me, Hester? What have you brought me from the shop?‘
‘I‘ve brought Katherine, Father,‘ Miss Harper said. ‘I‘ve brought Katherine, but she‘s for me.‘
This book is a creepy physiological drama. It‘s about an obsessive unconventional relationship between 2 women. The story is quite ambiguous in parts and requires you to decide what‘s real and what‘s insanity.

A travelling memoir.
What a fantastic philosophy ‘Turn a mishap into an adventure!‘ This was the kind of book that you can read a bit here and read a bit there. Each chapter starts with a postcard that the author has written and mailed to herself describing events or emotions of her travels in Europe. How I wish I could just take a year off and travel like she does.

#LitzyAtoZ letter ‘V‘
Nope, this book just didn‘t do it for me. What a let down. I did like some characters and their stories but not others. This is the second Pulitzer Prize book I‘ve read this year and they have both left me scratching my head. What am I missing?
I have 2 more on my tbr shelf but I am a bit reluctant to pick them up. It‘s strange as I find I generally love the books that win the Man Booker prize.

Lindy I love this book so much that I have read it twice and will surely read it again. It hits lots of notes for me: MPV; memorable characters; novel told via interconnected stories; time & music are themes; stylistic elegance. 5mo

This book was mad but so refreshing and wonderful. Once I accepted the magic realism, I was hooked! It‘s beautifully written and has made me yearn to revisit Tasmania. It explores family, grief, nature and spirituality. Each chapter is from the perspective of a different character, which works. Some parts of the book are extremely difficult to stomach (animals deaths) but others made me laugh.

AntoinetteBuchanan I hope to start it tomorrow. I‘m very much looking forward to it 5mo

Well I must have liked this book because I felt for the main character and cared about what she was doing to herself. I found myself yelling at her ‘Nooooooo! Stop!‘ quiet often. This book was a trip and so funny in places, especially the ‘so called‘ psychiatrist who was bat shit crazy! 🤣
It references Whoopi Goldberg a lot and I kept wondering if she has read it.
As my Mum always says “Money doesn‘t make you happy.” I‘m glad it ended with hope.

Hmmmm, I am a bit miffed about how this book won the Pulitzer Prize last year. I really struggled with the first half and I think I would have bailed except it is my book club book pick. I warmed slightly to the story in the second half especially some of the observations about growing old.
I did like some of the writing though:
‘Bougainvillea bloomed on their porch like a discarded prom dress.‘

It‘s been awhile since a book has made me cry, and I am an ugly crier! Such a powerful book that stays with you. This book rips your heart out of your chest. ❤️
My 15yr old son is reading it for school so I thought I would read it again so he has someone to talk to about it. I can‘t wait to see what he thinks of it.

Erofan So beautiful cat 😻! 6mo
