What Comes After: A Novel | JoAnne Tompkins

Pickpick

What an excellent debut! This novel explores what comes after grief and loss. The story is propulsive but also character-driven. I loved learning more about the Quaker way of life. May #doublespin #botm

JamieArc I‘m a Quaker, which is hardly ever portrayed in fiction, so I‘m curious to read this one! 8mo
Thousand-Lives @JamieArc I would love to hear your thoughts if you end up reading this one. 8mo
TheAromaofBooks I never hear about Quakers in modern fiction - only in historical fiction. Interesting!! 8mo

I wish I‘d listened to the negative reviews, but I love books about therapy so much I decided to dig in anyway. This felt more like Christie Tate detailing her sex life than actual growth through therapy. I have been in therapy for 6 years and thank God my therapist isn‘t anything like Tate‘s beloved Dr. Rosen. And how are we supposed to believe Tate remembered such detailed sessions/conversations from over 15 years ago? 🙄

Adunni is a fourteen year old Nigerian girl who wants an education and a “louding” voice. Her (often heartbreaking) story is told through broken English, but yet articulated so clearly. Adunni is a lovely character I won‘t soon forget. #botm

This book has such a clever premise - What if a serial killer isn‘t on trial, but he‘s on the jury? It‘s a page turner! It‘s book four in a series, but you don‘t need to read the others for this book to make sense. Far fetched at times, but a fun read for sure.

This slim memoir is powerful and heartbreaking. Trethewey writes of the grief she experienced following her mother‘s murder at the hands of her step-father. Trethewey also recounts her experience of growing up in the south during the 1960s/1970s with a black mother and white father. The author is a poet and that shines through in her writing. Trigger warnings for domestic violence.

Migrations: A Novel | Charlotte McConaghy

Set in the near future when almost all wild animals are extinct, Franny Stone sets out on a journey to follow the migration of the last Arctic terns. Franny is a wanderer and very troubled individual. It took me a while to settle into this story, which unfolds in a non-linear manner. I finally warmed to Franny as her life story slowly came into focus. This story is thought-provoking and beautifully told.

Thousand-Lives @Tamra It‘s well written, but a little too overdone or poetic for my taste. It‘s also just so bleak. I do think it might be better in print because of the jumps in time - worth a shot! 12mo

My January #doublespin was a comfort listen. I have fond memories of my dad reading this series to me as a young girl. There are certainly some similarities between the Covid pandemic and the many months of blizzards the Ingalls survived, but this story made me very thankful for our modern conveniences. A lovely, cozy read.

Excellent! Gildiner, a therapist, shares accounts of five patients she treated. This is not an easy read - the patients have all truly suffered in their lives; however, with Gildiner as their guide, they put in the hard work necessary to heal and grow. Such an inspirational read.
