Just finished this and it's a dang gem, taking shots at the mysoginistic superhero genre.

The Power | Naomi Alderman
post image

I wish I was more into this. Anyone else feel like reading this is/was a slog or am I the odd one out? (Pibb thought I was reading about peanut butter, which he refers to as "The Power", that's why he looks so focused)

Reviewsbylola I bailed. You‘re definitely not alone. 2y
ReadingEnvy I liked the ideas but I think this is one instance where alternating narratives were a disservice to the story. 2y
WoodyWoodson @Reviewsbylola thank goodness. Everyone raved about this so much I thought what am I missing?!?!?! 2y

Reviewsbylola My sister bailed too I think. @emilyhaldi Or she panned it. So at least there are three of us. 😂 2y
WoodyWoodson @ReadingEnvy I'm with you there. Sometimes that works but in this book, it just seems too lopsided. 2y
Bambolina_81 I bailed. I really couldn't care about the characters at all, and I thought I was the only one because of the hype! 2y
WoodyWoodson @Bambolina_81 so much hype!!! 2y

This book is up your alley if you enjoy learning about Early surgical practices and are not squeamish. Lindsey Fitzharris doesn't hold back the gore and gruesome spectacle seen in Victorian era operating theaters. This is a well reseaeched, well written, fascinating read!

Read from this at our public library's annual Read-a- Thon last weekend, and figured it was time to reread it. It's still so creepy! #classicscares

Pibb is sooooo tired of me reading about teenage dragons, and would rather I read a nice book about dogs. Or snacks. Or both. Just no more dragons. #dogsoflitsy

WoodyWoodson He wanted me to clarify: "no books about dogs as snacks". 2y

What a fun and silly read! What a zany cast of characters. So much is going on on every page, kids and adults will be entertained. This one is a keeper.

WoodyWoodson Its very intense, but the more traumatic the subject matter gets, the faster i find myself flipping pages. Which sounds crazy as i read this back. Its her writing, it just sucks me in. 2y

I'm a sucker for a book about family secrets, and this one filled with 'em. It spans 60 years in the lives of two sisters who came to Boston from Ireland, started their lives and families, tormented by secrets they keep from each other. So many secrets!!! It's the beautiful way these secrets come to light that makes this book such a great read.

Reviewsbylola I enjoyed her other books so looking forward to this one! 3y

Had to finally give up on this one. I can see why people are comparing it to Devil in the White City, but there's just too much going on. Might give it a go another time, but for now, its getting the pug frown.

This one got me right in the feels. Sweet, sweet sweatband wearing, mischievous pug and the little boy he loves (and loves him right back). Chloe Inkpen's illustations are so great, they really convey the oft worried look of a pug. #puglife

Jeez, I've been in a reading slump like never before, dear Littens! I haven't been able to focus on anything since the election, and have barely been checking to see what y'all are reading 😔!!! However, I picked this up today and am hoping It will pull me out of the non-reading quicksand.

BookishFeminist Hang in there!! I'm just starting to get out of my post-election reading slump. 3y

Gayan Reading has been like walking through quicksand since the election. I just cracked open Good as Gone a few days ago and finally, I was beginning to think I would never get over it. 3y
