I understand that Didion is like a huge deal. This is my first read by her and I just want to know why I‘m disliking her so much. I‘m only 70 pages in but it‘s truly screaming rich white lady to me 😩 I‘m sorry I had to say it. Maybe my mind will change.

Bunny: A Novel | Mona Awad

‘And then there was his voice,‘ I say. ‘He had one of those deep, serene, all-knowing voices like a documentary narrator. Like any moment he could tell you a fact about a penguin or the war and you‘d believe him. It was soothing. But sexy too. Like a tongue was being dragged up your inner thigh every time he said hi.‘

An absolute mind fuck. It left me confused but I still really enjoyed the read and the writing was truly fantastic. Read if you want to feel a sense of stunned that you didn‘t even know existed.

Just bizarre.

CarolynM Pretty much my reaction too. I‘m looking forward to reading he new one 2mo

I found this read to be incredibly, incredibly sweet and touching which I wasn‘t expecting at all. I love a light read that isn‘t completely cliche + this was so well written. Go ahead and read it 💝

On to the next read. Very excited to start something with less chaotic energy + more lighthearted content 😊✨ Has anyone read?

Natalieeliz Enjoy!! It isn‘t what I expected, if anything it‘s more complex than the blurb would seem. Beautiful story, pulls at the heartstrings. 4mo

Such a fun book to read. However, I will admit that I was over it by the last few chapters. Which I think I was almost supposed to feel considering the pranksters were also very much overdone by the end? Great read nonetheless. ✨

This read is average at best. I managed to get through it, but I wouldn‘t recommend it to my friends. It really lacked connection with the characters. Like is it just me or did Nora have zero personality whatsoever?

Started this one yesterday. I‘m about 80 pages in and so far I‘m hating the characters as they are all incredibly dull and cliche imo. But still excited to see where the story goes. Would love to hear everyone else‘s thoughts on this?

I skipped over the majority of this book, and thought it was less than average. Don‘t waste your time!

A great lil story. Read a lot of reviews stating this as a story of good people who made a mistake. Which is true, but the main element I took from this book was forgiveness. Of people, their mistakes, and their own mistakes. And how necessary it is in order to move foreword. Precious! 💝

Nute My irl Bookclub still talks about this book though we read it several years ago. 4mo

Bought this one at Powell‘s a few months ago when I was in Portland. It was one of those things where you‘re like “I‘m in an amazing bookstore so I should buy something I typically wouldn‘t just because I won‘t be back for a while plus it could end up being an amazing book...” Well I‘m halfway through and I‘m kind of mad I spent real money on it. The things our bookish hearts tell us while beaming in a bookstore... Beautiful cover though, right?!

Happy 2020 everyone! I haven‘t used this app in months and I only read a total of 6 books in 2019. This year I want to get back into my never ending tbr pile because I deeply miss my books beyond belief. So here is my first read accompanied by my kitty that I got last year. Her name is Scout (yes, named after Scout Finch of course.) Happy reading my friends!

Julsmarshall Welcome back! Lovely kitty 😻 3y

The Bell Jar | Sylvia Plath

This book weighed heavy on my heart. But brilliant prose and passages. Sylvia Plath is a beautiful writer. I especially liked the idea of being trapped in a bell jar- we have all been there, I know I have. Initially I found it hard to see why it‘s a classic, but I fully get it now. 💘

Anybody else get stressed and overwhelmed because you want to do so many things but don‘t have the time and because of that you feel like you‘re missing out on everything? I‘m struggling these days. Anyways, I‘m getting acquainted with Sylvia Plath.

Sorry, but I‘m bailing on this one. When I read I like to actually enjoy it. When I get upset over what I read I like it to be fiction, not real life. This book is a bummer and I‘m not in the mood for it. Maybe when he‘s not our president anymore.

Chose To Kill A Mockingbird for my next read. This is my copy from the tenth grade so excuse the panda sticker. I don‘t remember liking this book a whole lot when I read it back then, but of course who likes to read when you‘re being forced to? I certainly didn‘t, but I was also an angsty teen soooo. 🤷🏽‍♀️

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline

‘Asshole,‘ she muttered, but she wasn‘t really mad. That was part of being a girl- you were resigned to whatever feedback you‘d get. If you got mad, you were crazy, and if you didn‘t react, you were a bitch. The only thing you could do was smile from the corner they‘d backed you into. Implicate yourself in the joke even if the joke was always on you.

I can‘t believe how many bad reviews I‘ve read for this book because I thought it was beautiful. How much I related to the passages is very telling to me of what kind of person I am and I never really felt that from a book before. Truly and deeply touched. Definitely being added to my list of favorite books. Damn. My heart is physically aching!!!! 😭

Where to even begin? I highly recommend this trilogy. Dystopian novels typically freak me out, which this one definitely did but this one seems like it could happen any day. Loved the environmental themes. Loved the characters. Zeb especially. Margaret Atwood is a genius. 🙌🏽
