The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Pickpick

While this was still a page turner like the first, I almost felt like Atwood was playing into the TV show, giving us familiar names. I‘m not sure if she wrote it to give the show more ideas or just to say “hey, here the names you are familiar with. Do with this as you please.” And hints that Offred of the first book is actually June in the show. Even though she has said that Offred isn‘t. But absolutely loved what she did with Aunt Lydia.

Can‘t believe I‘m going to say this but the movie was better. It was slow and dragged in some places. And I don‘t care about the designers and what they were wearing.

I‘ve read a lot of books set in Great Britain lately. Is this a sign? 🤔 Anyway, this was a good one. I saw most the twists coming but found Eleanor is be a fascinating character. I had a few problems with some of the things Eleanor did at the end that didn‘t seem to fit her. I didn‘t want her to change in those ways.

This was a fun one! While the pacing was off at the end and didn‘t think we needed Eddie‘s pov, I very much enjoyed this. I love me an unreliable narrator.

I was really hoping this would be better but it was just okay. There were a few twists that I didn‘t see coming but overall, I‘m just glad I could count it as Popsugar Prompt 2.

WJCintron There's a movie if you want to watch it. The protagonist is Laura Prepon
who played Alex Vause in Orange is the new black. 😃 👍

audreydmcgee @WJCintron Yeah I‘m check it out to see if it‘s a little better 3mo
WJCintron @audreydmcgee Let me know if you liked it. It's not the best movie ever made, but at least they tried, lol. 3mo

The Handmaid's Tale | MARGARET. ATWOOD
post image
Pickpick

I couldn‘t put this book down. It‘s been on my TBR since the show came out. I‘ve struggled with the show these last few seasons. Mainly cause I think June is one of the most frustrating female characters on TV right now. I do not like and I think she‘s terrible. But Offred is nothing like her. The book is similar yet so different. I wanted more but also thought it ended like it should. Atwood does it again.

I enjoyed most of the book but there were some really slow parts that I struggled to get through. Once something happened, I was all in. Definitely an unpopular opinion but didn‘t love this book like others.

I wasn‘t sure about this at first but the last 100 pages really sucked me in. The connection at the end was amazing and I didn‘t see it coming. I usually don‘t though.

I didn‘t want this book to end. I came to the last page and flipped back thinking I skipped pages. I wanted more from Jude and Kennedy. I needed something else from Stella and Desiree. But Brit Bennett did a brilliant job having an open ending. It makes you hope that the characters‘ stories aren‘t over.

Starting off 2022 with a BEAST. While I liked All The Light We Cannot See more, Anthony Doerr again knocks it out of the park with jumping POVs.

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

I read this book in a day. I could not put it down. I had seen the show before I read it and I really wish I hadn‘t because the book provided so much more. Almost all of the characters were female and they were all so flawed, so beautiful, so amazing.

I found this book digging through 2nd and Charles. It‘s been on my list since I saw Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. I‘m so impressed that Cheryl hiked the PCT at 26, alone. Very inspiring journey.

This month‘s book club pick was a popular book and I expected more. It was an easy read but not a lot of depth with the characters. We didn‘t get enough for their motives and the choices they made. Maybe tomorrow‘s discussion will help but for now this is just a nice pool/beach book.

Okay, this was hard. I love to bake with apples but I love craving pumpkins. And I couldn‘t keep October because I love sitting by a bonfire. #thoughtfulthursday
