The Bride Test | Helen Hoang
post image
Pickpick

Another fun romance from Helen Hoang. This one felt a bit rushed to me, there were certain plot points teased repeatedly but never really addressed (like the state of Khai's house vs how much $$ his family references him having) so I wondered if she was struggling to meet her deadline lol. Likewise the characters we a bit flat in the first half of the book but by the end they had filled out and become more nuanced.

The Troop | Nick Cutter

Body horror to the extreme! A small troop of scouts is camping on an uninhabited island when a very hungry stranger arrives. Many bad decisions are made. Loved the format with the interspersed interviews and newspaper clippings to tease out info. This hit a couple of my personal gross out buttons, definitely a great survival horror story!

TheLudicReader Some serious gross out moments, but compelling nonetheless. 1w

The Last Conversation | Paul Tremblay

At first listening to this I was just comparing it slightly unfavorably to the phenomenal first season of "Within the Wires" but the ending really blew me away. You are recovering alone in a dark room. You have no memory of your life but the doctor speaking to you from somewhere else is trying to help... A haunting little dystopian tale for spooky season!

Fantastic! Dickey explores why we come up with the ghost stories that permeate American society (though many of our most famous yarns are full of fabrications or made up whole cloth) and what these stories tell us about our country and culture. Well researched, nuanced, and highly readable.

This went in a direction I wasn't expecting. The first few chapters were the strongest for me but it was a compelling story. Middle schooler Tommy disappears one night while hanging out in a state park with two friends; their straight forward account soon becomes more complicated. Tremblay jumps between characters to tell this story and I'm not sure I really felt like I had a handle on any of them by the end.

September was a slow reading month for me (only 9 books) and I started October off with company in the house so it has been wonderful today to settle down and get some serious reading done. Finished the majority of The Haunting of Hill House, a short story (An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge) and now some spooky #nonfiction with my almost black cat Polly. #catsoflitsy

Fever Dream | Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child

Decided to get back into this series; this is the last one I remember reading so since it's the beginning of the Helen trilogy I figured I ought to reread it before going forward. The opening is dynamite but it did get slow to me for a bit before racheting up in the last third. I'm not sure everything came together (esp. the meaning behind the painting) but it reminded me what I loved about these characters so I'm excited to keep going!

I'm not crying, you're crying.

This was incredible, especially with the full cast audio. I wasn't really interested when I heard about it but after Evelyn Hugo I decided TJR was worth the hype and this seemed a great use of a Libro credit. So many nuanced, difficult, heartbreaking characters. It did not go where you'd assume and I did not side with who I expected to. Graham and Karen Karen were my faves, and everyone felt so real. 💯

This was just what I needed to stave off a slump! Mei is a great heroine, and I appreciated that the romance portion didn't just fall into the standard "bad communication/stubborn anger" tropes that I find really common. Mei's difficult relationship with her family and their traditional expectations was fleshed out and the book had an arc without having to tie things up in an unrealistic bow.

Quite a few updates to catch up on! This was great on audio as read by Fey; funny of course and upfront about being a female comedian and juggling personal and professional goals. Though Fey doesn't necessarily delve into deep, dark secrets she's candid and honest about things she feels like she may not have handled well in certain parts of her life.

I thought this was everywhere b/c it's Really Good Poetry, then I heard on a podcast it's really that she had a huge Instagram following so I finally read it and... Yep. A few nice poems and I agree with much of the sentiment but mostly it reads like an early aughts Melo-journal (anyone else remember those?) Glad when I decided to read more poetry I started with Sabrina Benhaim and Olivia Gatwood instead.

#bookhaul from my last trip to #hpb. I sold 3 bags of books as well! Really excited to start reading the Pendergast series again!

But I heard these mentioned on Reading Glasses recently and decided it was worth going back to.

Hard to rate - I expected to love this but it's a bit more complicated. It is really sticking in my head and I just want to discuss/hear what other people thought so that's probably a win. I think the story that really worked for me is most reader's least favorite so that's an interesting #unpopularopinion.

j9brown Which one is that? I wouldn't call any of them a "favorite" myself, but I think the one where the women were fading into invisibility, and the eating disorder one worked the most for me. And the one with the apocalypse quietly happening in the background was the only one that actually felt like a whole story. I feel like something might have gone over my head with some of the others! ? 1mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @j9brown I liked the fading women one, but I really got into the Law and Order one. It was weird and yes, overlong, but I thought that worked for the theme and I was really into the eldritch horror thing. 1mo
j9brown @WhatWouldJaneDo Oh yeah! Too long for sure, but there were some really cool and creepy and even funny bits in there! 1mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @j9brown I hi-lited so much of it! But then I listened to the Literary Disco ep about it and they seemed to think it should have been cut from the book lol. I skimmed some reviews and it seems like if it gets mentioned it's as a least favorite. 1mo
j9brown @WhatWouldJaneDo It's an odd fit I guess but I thought it broke up the book in an interesting way, like a weird interlude. 🤷‍♀️ I can see why some people weren't into it, though, it was an unexpectedly strange sort of format for a short story! 1mo

A post WWII quest to find an escaped Nazi known as The Huntress interspersed with the history of one of the hunters: a former Soviet "Night Witch" pilot. I love reading about the lesser known women's history so the Night Witches were fascinating, and Quinn writes interesting characters but this dragged a little for me. Since the Huntress is only shown after the war, her crimes mentioned in passing, she never builds into a really black villian.

This was an awesome read! I flew through it; lots of tension and like the characters I was desperate to find out the cave's secrets. Gyre is a lone caver sealed in a robotics suit, Em is her reticent handler, only connection to the surface and semi-controller. Both characters have some ulterior motives, and their backstories weren't always fleshed out enough for these to totally land, but as a sci-fi creep fest this totally worked.

The Wedding Party | Jasmine Guillory

Jasmine Guillory is a delightful author. As usual, this was fun and sexy with interesting characters. I felt like some of Theo and Maddie's conflict was a little repetitive after The Proposal and their life/work subplots weren't as detailed as in the other books, which I missed, but Guillory is still a must read for me after 3 books. Can't wait for the next one (and hopefully she'll do one about Carlo's sister in the future).

This one had serious Daphne DuMaurier/Shirley Jackson vibes. Much like The Haunting's Nell, MC Frances responds to an unusual job opportunity at a remote country house soon after her mother dies.

Several reviews to catch up on for the books I finished during vacay last week... First up, The Bees: this is an interesting dystopia/cli-fi mashup. Think The Handmaid's Tale but in a beehive and all the characters are bees. Paull obviously knows about bee behavior and seeing that as a series of rituals was fascinating, but I didn't think she sold the possible conspiracy in the hive enough.

I wish I'd read this sooner! I absolutely loved it, and I will never look at celebrity marriages the same way again. Evelyn's story of fighting again and again for her goals and dreams was riviting. The modern portion of the frame story wasn't as strong for me, although it allowed Evelyn to really put a point on her story (which could be a touch didactic at times) but overall this was fantastic.

I adored this "cover version" of "The Winter's Tale!" Winterson is such a gorgeous writer and she captures both the brutality and the hopefulness inherent in the play. I'm glad I read this one after seeing a Public Works production last year that moved me to tears, it def made her approach resonate more than my college memories of the play would've. I loved the way she focused on the concept of time to bring out her themes through the entire book.

This isn't a bad book, but at halfway I just couldn't get into it. It may be a mood thing, I picked it up because I was desperate for something to fill #goodreadssummerreading cat "a genre you've never read before," which was nearly impossible for me but I don't think I've read a "wine" book. But this is also very much a book about rich people problems in an industry built on racism/slavery (which the author recognizes) so I don't really care...

WhatWouldJaneDo @Leftcoastzen I'm still considering gifting it to the wine people in my life, but I just didn't get into the topic! Some bits interested me more than others but at 50% I just didn't want to pick it up anymore and I'm trying to be better about DNFing stuff if it's not for me. Too many other books to read! 2mo

Really struggled to rate this. I can see why so many people like it but it made me sad af. I felt like this "heartwarming" and "funny" book needs a massive trigger warning. More in comments under a spoiler tag (although it becomes pretty obvious within the first few chapters so not a big spoiler).

Did manage to get some concentrated #reversereadaton hours in this afternoon and finished the second half of this! I enjoyed it, although sometimes it was spread a little thin amongst so many characters. I had also expected this to be a locked room mystery for some reason and that's really not it at all. Typical LM, the only mystery aspect is what really drove these characters to the Tranquillum House spa in the first place.

Beautifully written and narrated - it was powerful to hear the emotion in Obama's voice as she described pivotal moments in her life. She is open and candid about everything from her personal goals to her relationship with her husband and her insecurities in the public spotlight.

Call me old fashioned but I think a critical essay should have a thesis. Bolin had some interesting ideas, especially in the opening essays that did focus on the Dead Girls trope but she's quite meandering. Then the piece where she jumps back and forth between Dead Girls in Nordic Noir and... her father's autism? (He claims not to remember being diagnosed and does not identify as autistic). Tried to keep going but I'm doing too much skimming.

On a business trip; no direct flights so I spent about 8 hours at the airport/on planes yesterday, had my meeting today, and now am back at the airport. Figured I'd start a doorstop of a book; this one is about 1,000 pages and I'm about a third through. Hoping to hit the halfway point by the time I get home tonight but I don't think the rest of the trip will be as peaceful as the Rochester airport currently is.
