Very clever story. Too many twists for my taste; it always feels like the author is trying too hard when there‘s that many. However, still a page turner.

Finally finished this tripe. The book struggled to have lyrical prose but felt pretentious instead. It always felt like there was something great around the corner while reading but never arrived.

Shemac77 @Cathythoughts I thought so too! But maybe I wasn‘t in the mood for it. It was quite dark as well which I normally don‘t mind but this time it just felt a little too dark. 2mo

Cathythoughts Hi Sheila , I‘ve just seen a post you liked with my name on it , with my Litsy picture ( & Facebook logo ) & name & this really worries me as I‘m not on FB for years now & so could not have posted this on Facebook ? It was also @JoeStalksBeck .... not sure what‘s going on ? No ill will intended at all , just don‘t understand (edited) 2mo
Shemac77 What?! I have no idea. It was on FB? I‘m rarely on FB. And haven‘t looked anyone up from Litsy on FB. I‘m really curious as well. It makes no sense 2mo
See All 8 Comments
Shemac77 @Cathythoughts Unless you‘ve read these books? The only thing I can think of is that I went back to who tagged the books and liked their reviews. Within litsy though. 2mo
Cathythoughts @Shemac77 Sorry for all the confusion ... I really don‘t know what happened.. it‘s worrying , but I‘m just going to let it go ... and again , no ill will intended. Take care friend & chat soon X 2mo
Shemac77 No worries! I‘d have concerns too. @Cathythoughts If you‘re more comfortable unfriending me on here; I totally understand. 2mo
Cathythoughts @Shemac77 oh no ! I definitely don‘t want to unfriend you. I really like being friends with you on Litsy... it‘s all good ... I probably over- reacted ( it‘s been known to happen) ... I‘m sure whatever glitch it was won‘t happen again...I think your right I must have liked the same book as you & then some wires got crossed.. I hope I havnt upset you. My Litsy app went down last night but it‘s up & running again 👍🏻♥️ 2mo
Shemac77 @Cathythoughts I‘m not upset at all! I‘m super creeped out about it. Social media is getting freakier and freakier. Someone said that FB “listens” to conversations then tailors their ads to what you‘ve said or written. I find that bone chilling. 2mo

Cathythoughts @Shemac77 no worries, that original comment I sent you was edited some how ... I had sent you a longer more explanatory text .... getting too weird. Anyway no worries at all ... social media is freaking me out too. Take care XX 2mo

Genius. I want to read everything this woman has written.

MyBookSwapClub Give me an overview please...I tried to read one of her other book - didn't get into it (think it was something about on the road) 2mo
Shemac77 The first in the series is How to Build a Girl. Both center around Dolly (pseudonym) who is a brilliant girl from a poor town in Wales. She manages to pull herself out of said town by writing geniusly for a rock magazine. That‘s the very basic premise. However. The book is more than that. It‘s an anthem for young girls finding their way. It‘s shocking and balls out funny and heartbreaking. 2mo
MyBookSwapClub @Shemac77 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 2mo
Buechersuechtling I enjoy seeing people enthusiastic about Caitlin Moran‘s books. Some years ago, I read the first one because it was recommended on TV by someone who often hits my taste. But this one was so much not my cup of tea that my brain refuses to forget the book. 😂 Enjoy your reads and have a relaxing Sunday. @MyBookSwapClub @Shemac77 ‼️ 2mo

Beautiful! I went to the same high school as the author. Amy nails Cape Breton as only a Caper can. I was transported back to home by her writing. She made me homesick and immensely proud to be from that magnificent island.
