Wow, just wow. To say I was ignorant on so many topics is an understatement. This book brought up emotions, questions, understandings, and taught me so much about the educational system. A system I loved/respected and never ever questioned. Not only an excellent and powerful read but also a book that I learned from. I highly recommend!

I couldn‘t be more excited to dive into this book. My partner pushes me to learn more about subjects I wouldn‘t get into. I value his opinion and interests because he is self-educated on the topics that speak to him. He has wanted me to read this book for a long time, bought it for me (which he always buys me books when we see each other 🤗) and I can‘t wait to have an open discussion about it. ❤️

This book was very interesting. He is writing to you like you‘re an author and damn do I not feel like one now! I never ever thought about writing my own book until I read this one. The biggest advice I got from it is to write what you know and to be honest. No matter what others tell you. I also love his book list at the end. ❤️❤️
I always get to finish books while on vacation with my man, he sleeps in so late! 😉

The Nix | Nathan Hill

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Written about the protest in the late sixties. You see the sides of the police, politics and “hippies.” The main character dives into his mom‘s past who abandoned her family when he was young. The twist and turns are so entertaining. The length intimidated me because I tend to get bored with long books, but it was such a fast read!

Cat's Cradle | Kurt Jr. Vonnegut

This is not one of my favorites by Vonnegut. Maybe I am not in the right frame of mind to read it...? The purpose of some of the characters was lost to me. I will always love his style of writing, it‘s fast and comical. The ending was good and brought the book together nicely. I will probably read it again to try to get a better understanding of the characters.

Kindred | Octavia E. Butler

I loved loved loved this book. I finished it in a few days which is fast for me. The story grips you right away and I found myself excited to wake up early and read more. Butler makes you dissect the dynamic relationship between a slave and master. You will definitely keep this book on your mind for awhile.

Blaire My favorite Octavia Butler! 3mo

My boyfriend and I are both readers, he likes more non-fiction and I read fiction. We decided to read a book together (don‘t know why it took us two years to finally do this!) and this one is great for both of us. I started it last night and can not put it down! Right away you get sucked into the story and want to know what happens next!

SW-T Awesome choice. Loved this one. Belated welcome to Litsy 😊 3mo

Snuff | Chuck Palahniuk

I hate to say that a Palahniuk book isn‘t a “pick” but I wasn‘t the biggest fan. I did like it and finished it but I‘ve read others that I have liked way more. There were a lot of characters and not enough depth to them so I would often get confused about who was who. It was based in one location and that got kind of boring. I‘m glad I read it but not one of my favorites.

It was a good book. The writing wasn‘t the best and I found some grammatical errors (one of my biggest pet peeves)! The ending had a lot of turns and unpredictable outcomes which kept me on my toes. Overall, I liked the book but wouldn‘t read it again.

I randomly found this book at a used bookstore. It‘s an easy and fast read. The writing isn‘t the best but the story is exciting enough!

Good read! A story following a girl through her whole life...ups and downs. I wouldn‘t read it again but enjoyed the writing and journey!

My mom recommended this book to me after her book club read it one month. Found it in a thrift store and thought, why not? My mom and don‘t really have the same taste in books so she hardly recommends any to me, but I can see why people like this already. I am more into Stephen King, Chuck Palahniuk and Mario Puzo so this style of writing is different for me. So far, a beautifully written story. 🤗

TrishB A wonderful read. 5mo

Definitely in my top ten favorite books. The writing was so beautiful. You understood the emotions of each character which made you love and hate their characteristics. The whole book was a huge adventure, literally and emotionally. I couldn‘t express how much I fell in love with this story. I will have to read this again in the future. ❤️

BarbaraBB I hope to finish this one today too! 6mo

Some of the stories were ok but towards the end they got really bizarre. Maybe it‘s just not for me but there was a lot of uncomfortable sex fantasies.

Very well written and exciting to read. Twist on many controversial issues in America. Some parts made you uncomfortable, in a great way. Only problem is that I wanted most of the short stories to develop into novels.
