Come for the history of investigative journalism and the progressive movement, stay for the heart wrenching stories about presidential friendship! This was a fascinating story about a period of dynamic change in American history made all the more compelling by the remarkable relationships between Taft and Roosevelt. Any book which leaves me tearing up at a bus stop as I listen to the last chapter is worth the investment!

The Lost Daughter | Elena Ferrante
post image
Pickpick

Man, I just love Elena Ferrante. This short novel focuses on the summer vacation of a middle aged woman, but quickly morphs to a powerful exploration of motherhood. Fans of the Neapolitan Novels will recognize the similar themes and equally fantastic writing. I had to keep reminding myself though not to try and make comparisons between those novels, this story, and what I can imagine her real life to be!

Going Solo | Roald Dahl
post image
Pickpick

How could I have forgotten how much I absolutely love Roald Dahl?? I don't know how I missed this follow-up to Boy, but I'm so glad to have read it. This book follows Dahl in his adventures after school, working in Africa for the Shell Company and serving as an RAF pilot in WWII. His witty account is of course funny, but interspersed with thrilling tales of military exploits and heartbreaking remembrances of the war.

I finished this book ages ago but only just got around to putting it on Instagram (with that cover how can you not?) so I figured I'd share it on litsy S Well! This was a lovely book that made me want to be a fancy Victorian collector (clearly)! Perry describes the nature and changing seasons with beautiful precision and develops the characters beyond period stereotypes. I'll admit I wasn't quite as absorbed as I had hoped, but it was enchanting.

I was interested to learn more about LBJ and make my way through Doris Kearns Goodwin's books and this one (her first) was a good intro but not the most captivating read. She includes a lot of psychoanalytical and Freudian commentary which seems kind of overreaching for a biography
Honestly the most interesting part was the forward, which she wrote almost 40 years later, so if you're interested maybe just read that part.

mdbstar12 To be fair I might have enjoyed it more if i had read it instead of listening to it as the narrator had an annoyingly nostalgic tone that drove me nuts 2y

Eh. Not as entertaining as The Girl on the Train and not really terribly suspenseful/surprising either. The book picks up a bit by the second half, but really just enough to keep you entertained for the time being, not enough to really recommend to someone else.

Celine: A novel | Peter Heller
post image
Panpan

I had high hopes in this book, which is I think what frustrated me so much. Each deviation from the plot and overwritten addition disappointed me more than your average "bad book." If this didn't present itself as a PI-investigatory-suspense novel there would still be too much exposition, but at least it wouldn't be so uneven. Unfortunately it was and the plot payoff wasn't worth the suffering.

mdbstar12 To be honest this is probably so-so but I was just so irritated and life's too short to read bad books. 2y

Celine: A novel | Peter Heller

I want to like this book because the plot seems interesting but OMG this writing is getting to me! Clunky, uneven and with so much exposition that I had to double check it wasn't trying to catch me up on a missed prequel. Not a sentence goes by without a long winded explanation for why someone acts the way they do. I'm 1/3 of the way through, so I don't want to bail, but can anyone who's read this convince me it's worth the struggle?

What a beautiful story! A man leaves home one day to post a letter to a friend and keeps walking past the postbox. The premise is simple but the story is endearing. A bittersweet journey across the UK which tugs at your heartstrings and gives you the urge to hit the road yourself.

I was skeptical about how interesting someone's diaries could be but I was really enchanted by this book! It was fascinating to discover how Sedaris' style develops and deftly captures the world around him. You get a sense of how he engages in his surroundings and it makes you want to look at your own life more cleverly. Some of the entries are so unique it demonstrates that the truth really is stranger than fiction!

I was pleasantly surprised with this touching novel about a daughter returning home to care for her father after his Alzheimers diagnosis. Poignant and bittersweet with a touch of wry humor.

I was expecting this to be a quick thriller pick, but it was so much more! The book expands beyond the basic suspenseful premise to encompass a whole town, becoming a portrait of a community in transition. Tragic and hauntingly beautiful with a set up that reminded me a bit of Broadchurch's first season.

I picked this up at the library yesterday and tore through it! At first I was afraid it'd be one of those actor-not-writer written books, but was pleasantly surprised. Not a highbrow, thought-provoking memoir by any means, but if you like Gilmore Girls and Lauren Graham this is a fun, fast, enjoyable read.

With an Oral History I think the editor/author/compiler's role becomes a little more apparent than usual, so there were some inserts/asides that irked me. If you're a fan of The Daily Show though these little issues are forgettable and you'll get great insight into the 16 years of this fantastic show.

Just a nice book. If you're in need of a happy little diversion look no further--this book is I think the definition of "feel good," without sacrificing plot or emotion. Ideal for fans of classic BBC/British tv, too (it reminded me a lot of a perfect episode of Midsomer Murders, just without the murder)!

I picked up this book because I read some article where Emma Watson mentioned being a big fan, and I definitely see it, but I'm not quite buy-the-movie-rights obsessed with it like she seemed to be. It was a very fast read, entertaining, and I'm keen to read the next 2 in the series but the general premise annoyed me. Without spoilers, the "realm" or "universe" of the book bothered me more than it should. But generally I'd recommend it!

heikemarie I thought the world building was weak Book 1, I do think it gets better. I hated the ending of the trilogy. Like regret reading it kind of hate. 2y

I don't know why I'm always so hesitant to read older books because I really enjoyed this one! Very readable with a good dash of humor thrown in amidst an expected amount of tragedy. My one complaint against this book wasn't against Thomas Hardy but Barnes & Noble Classics--if there's a plot point that doesn't happen until the last 30 pages, don't put it in the blurb on the back! Just because it's a "classic" doesn't mean I know how it ends!

Smrloomis Yup, completely agree with you on the plot spoiler! 2y
mdbstar12 @Smrloomis Thank you! I didn't even look at the back until I was over halfway through but apparently I should have waited until I'd finished it altogether! 2y

It had taken me a LONG time to finish this book, but that's honestly due to how remarkable it was. The premise in a nutshell is an African American farmer in LA reintroduces segregation. Pretty daring, to say the least, and the writing more than stands up to the challenge! The satire was so incredibly thick, and each word was so precisely chosen that you can't skim a single sentence. Every page has a remarkably clever phrase--worth the struggle!

A remarkable, thought provoking book of letters from a father to his son regarding what it means to be a Muslim in the modern world. Rather than dictating lessons, he encourages his son to consider the questions which he's posed himself. Some sentiments are applicable to any religious/spiritual person navigating the 21st century, but more are specific to the Muslim experience. A very powerful read for people of any/no faith at all!

I've wanted to read this ever since watching the miniseries in high school, so I may have been predisposed to like this book, but I loved it! This gave me the same sort of, anglophile warmth as I Capture the Castle, but with an added dose of Wharton tragedy. It's a shame Wharton died before the novel could be completed but even the sort of 2/3 she finished stand on their own.

I read this fairly quickly and I guess I was pretty entertained, but the engaging intro fades into a fairly forgettable middle and rather disappointing ending.
