I‘m about half through listening to this and I am HOOKED. It is horrifying and heartbreaking, and I cannot wait to learn what happens next.

I wanted to love this book. The story is something I would ordinarily get into and the prose is beautiful. However, I struggled with this one. The story is just too slow and it takes too long for everything to “click”. When the click finally happened, I just didn‘t really care anymore.

This book was so beautiful and heartbreaking. What a wonderful exploration of family through the generations, with all of the flaws of those people and the heartache that can plague a family during that time. Power and colonialism are huge themes, and I think they are dealt with well. It can be hard to read sometimes because a lot of what happens is horrible, but it‘s worth it in the end. When I finished I was actually shaking. Highly recommend.

I‘m about 75% through this book, which has been pushed hard at Indigo, and honestly I have mixed feelings. The writing is lovely and whimsical, which I appreciate, and the narrator of the audiobook is good, but the story really hasn‘t grabbed me. Hopefully it picks up for the last leg, because at this point I don‘t really care much about what happens.

This book should honestly be required reading for everyone. Empowering and heartbreaking, it‘s a selection of stories from Syrians and their experiences. Incredible.

Generally I‘m of the view that it shouldn‘t take 4 volumes to be able to determine what‘s going on, but the art and goof idea kept me coming back, and I‘m glad it did. I‘m finally getting the story!

I decided to read this before watching the movie and it did not disappoint. Great psychological thriller, had me counting down the minutes til I could listen again 👍🏻

I‘ve only ever read The Yellow Wallpaper in high school, but never any others by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Excited to pick away at these stories for the next little bit!

American War | Omar El Akkad

This book hooked me. I have to say that the first 1/4 of it was my favourite and wholly engaging. After that it dropped slightly for me, but I still found it very interesting, and one of the most unique explorations of what a war can do to a person, and what a person may choose to do in light of her circumstances, that I‘ve read. Not perfect, but I very much enjoyed it.

I read this with a book club and was really excited about it. In the end, I thought the ideas and concepts were really beautiful, but I couldn‘t connect with the style. It was lovely, but just missed the mark a little for me.

Find You in the Dark | Nathan Ripley

I read this on a recommendation from a friend. I like thrillers. I‘m into crime. What isn‘t there to like? A lot. I would have bailed on this early if I wasn‘t reading this for a friend. A book that should have been right up my alley, but ended up being such a disappointment.

Fifteen Dogs | Andre Alexis

I was lukewarm on this book until about 4/5 of the way in, when I got so touching I actually cried, which doesn‘t happen often for me! It was a slow-burn, but also a fairly short read. It was also quite different from anything I‘ve read before.

The Wife Between Us | Sarah Pekkanen, Greer Hendricks

I read this for a book club, otherwise I would have put it down halfway through. It was slow and really not effective at making the reader feel what it obviously wants the reader to feel. It has good ideas, but I really didn‘t think it pulled it off. Unless you want a really passive, predictable read, I would say pass on this.

This book, like another of Hannah‘s books, The Nightingale, instantly gripped me. The story feels real. It‘s heartbreaking and uplifting. A truly wonderful experience.

This was my Christmas read this year. I‘ve always been a fan of Shirley Jackson but for some reason had never read this book. The Netflix series inspired me to do so, and I devoured it. So 👻

This was a fun read between two more serious books. I‘ve only ever been into Greek and Roman mythology before, and really enjoyed delving into mythology I‘m not familiar with. Short stories, an easy read, and scandal! What‘s not to like?

My first time venturing into Hemingway. I love a good cover.

TheNextBook I‘ve tried two by him and am not a big fan. Haven‘t read this one so I‘m interested to see what you think. 1y
Vulpixen @TheNextBook I liked it, but didn‘t love it. I found it to be a relatively easy and very quick read, and by the end it made me feel what I think it intended readers to feel. I would recommend it if you have an hour or two to kill, but maybe don‘t go out of your way to read it. 1y
