3.5/5 stars. I had such high expectations for this book and they weren‘t totally meet. I loved Shrill (both the book and the tv show), so maybe my expectations were a bit too high. Even though everything in this book is so on point, I really feel like it‘s just preaching to the choir. Nothing Lindy says is really adding something new to the discourse that is already out there. That said, I still 100% recommend this book!
Spent my morning reading in front of a roaring fire, cuddling with my cat, and enjoying Christmas decor 🎄😺📚
If I hadn‘t been reading it for a book club, there is no way I would have finished it. I found none of the characters likable, which isn‘t necessarily bad. What is bad is that I disliked them because they were all cliches. It‘s been a while since I read a book that cause me to eye roll so hard that I gave myself a headache.
After spending the whole day moving and unpacking, I‘m so grateful I can dip my feet in my pool(!) and enjoy a drink and take a reading break.
I‘m moving in 2 days and this is the lone book I haven‘t packed. I still have to read something during my lunch break at work tomorrow!
Has anyone had any shipping issues with orders from Tin House? I placed an order back in April and the status of my order still says “processing.” I‘ve sent to emails to the order support address listed on their website and haven‘t gotten a response. I decided to send them an Instagram (since I don‘t have Twitter) message to see if they would respond. I‘m a big fan of Tin House‘s publications, but not a huge fan of their customer service 🙄
Is anyone else already kind of over this game? I was so exited for it, but so far I feel like I only get like 5 minutes of play time, then I have to wait for ever for my energy to build back up. It‘s definitely not what I thought it was going to be...
This is honestly unbelievable! I thought for sure the killer would go the way of Jack the Ripper or the Zodiac Killer. If on Michell McNamara was alive to see this! She played such a large part in finding the killer.
Not the greatest graphic memoir I‘ve ever read, but enjoyable nonetheless. It follows the lives of the author, her mother, and her grandmother. Most of the book is about the grandmother surviving the holocaust, which I thought were the best parts. I also really like the illustration style. 3/5 ⭐️
