This was really thought-provoking. I didn‘t love the tone in the introduction or first chapter - too self-help-y - but I kept reading and I‘m very, very glad I did. And now I will go to bed feeling very pleased with myself that I was able to return it EARLY. 🥳

1. The tagged book and 5 others I‘ve started and not managed to finish yet. I blame work stress 😖 2. Pumpkin! 3. “His experiences with Damkroger, Crabbe, and Hughes had shaken his confidence, and as he‘d gotten on the Matsonian, Sakamoto imagined that a trip with so many haoles would be bleak and humiliating and that he would continually be aware of his role as a second-class citizen with a first-class ticket.” #weekendreads @rachelsbrittain

Sbk89 1. Letters to Sam/ The Meccan revelation/ The woman who went to bed for a year. 2. Both. 3. “Your differentness will make people want to help you, too; and helping you will help them feel good.” 4w
Smrloomis @Sbk89 👍🏽 Is the Meccan Revelations readable? And are there really something like 40 volumes??? 🙈 4w
Sbk89 It‘s readable 😂 but be prepared to read a paragraph several times in order to grasp it. It‘s definitely not an easy read. I‘m not really sure how many volumes, but this one does refer to other volumes a great deal. 4w

The Book of Flora | Meg Elison
post image
Panpan

Hmm, I finished this but just barely. I usually don‘t finish books when I dislike them this much but I wanted to give Elison a fair shake. This was an extremely uninteresting and unmoving end to the trilogy. Don‘t want to spoil it but the characters are wooden and there is a love triangle that is simply boring. This read like a developmental draft, not a finished product. Still I would read more from Elison since the first two books 👇🏽

Smrloomis were really interesting. But this one was just so disappointing! 👎🏽 2mo
Smrloomis @kyraleseberg you were right 😭 2mo
kyraleseberg @Smrloomis I loved the first two so much, I was in shock over this one. I completely agree this felt like an early draft. I have no idea if the author was rushed to finish or just ready to be done but either way it felt like they didn't have time to flesh out the story at all. 2mo

This was a very detailed look at Elizabeth Holmes‘s wild foray into health care and investor fraud. It reminded me of Going Clear, another book I didn‘t know I needed to read until I started it and couldn‘t put it down. Highly recommended. I might need to watch the documentary that‘s out on it and I‘m not usually a documentary fan. If you‘re curious, pick it up.

This was a pick for me. This may be for you too if you don‘t expect it to be what it is clearly not. This is not Nickel and Dimed or Evicted. This is not a meditation on how race or class intersects with poverty. This is one woman‘s memoir about being a single mom without anyone else to rely on. And for that, I found it moving.

Ashley_Nicoletto I love single mom books. I had a single mom and I honestly couldn‘t have asked for a better parent/friend. I can‘t wait to read this. 5mo
