This galley is making the rounds in my department. It's clearly been well-loved already (and I'm loving it, too!).

I'm only 60 pages in and am contemplating my own mortality and that of everyone around me. So powerful and necessary.

missfarin @BethFishReads @LitHousewife It was so much fun to read! All I could think of was "I can't believe this is cannon." And I need to see it live, I can't imagine the stagecraft. 3y

Who blew through this in about four hours and immediately went on to reserve the rest of the series from the library? This gal.

BethFishReads Ooookaaaaay I guess I need to explore 3y
missfarin @BethFishReads I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I can't wait to get the next one. 3y
BethFishReads I put it on my list 3y
8leagueboot I bought a hardcover of her Six of Crows before I even returned the copy to the library. I finished this one at maybe one o'clock this morning! 👌 3y

Very few people write nonfiction like Kate Summerscale. Completely hooked.

missfarin @BethFishReads I feel like it came in way under the radar. So far, it's just as good as Mr. Wicher. 3y
missfarin @kaysreadinglife This is the perfect kind of nonfiction for a fiction reader. It feels exactly like a regular mystery/thriller. 3y
BethFishReads I've got it on hold at the library. Only one person ahead of me 3y
MrBook I listened to the author get interviewed on a history podcast. Great author! 3y

This series started super strong, faltered a bit on book 3 (there was a lot of character introspection that felt contrived to me), and is mostly back on track with book 4. The mystery was as intriguing as ever, but there were some plot points that oddly led nowhere. Still very excited for book 5!

The Prince of Tides | Pat Conroy
Pickpick

I'm ashamed to say I'd never read Pat Conroy before, but his death gave me the push to pick this up. Oh my GOD, so intense, but in the best possible way. An epic tale of family and the South. And now I need to catch up on the rest of Conroy's backlist.

SuziQoregon Beach Music is wonderful. I want to reread that one. 3y
TouchstoneBooks Absolutely one of my favorite books of all time, by one of my favorite authors of all time. I was completely devastated by his passing. Definitely read the whole backlist, starting with... 3y
Avidreader25 I'm reading Beach Music right now! It's my first Conway and everyone recommended it when he passed away. @SuziQoregon 3y

The Lake House | Kate Morton
post image
Mehso-so

I love Kate Morton's books, and this one made me want to pack up and head to Cornwall. That said, I found the story to be a little predictable, and some of the plot hints were so heavy-handed that I rolled my eyes. Not an awful read, but not great.

BethFishReads I DNF'd it. I so wanted to love it, but it never clicked for me 3y
thebookwheel It's my least favorite Morton. I was disappointed in the rushed ending and disappearing storylines. 3y
missfarin @thebookwheel YES! I thought the ending was so sloppy. 3y

LitHousewife Boo! I read The Secret Keeper for book club and that felt like it would never end. I was hoping this one was better. It makes me regret buying it. Oh well. How many books have I read and never picked back up off the shelf? 3y
missfarin @LitHousewife I really disliked The Secret Keeper, too. I think this one was similarly structured. I keep hoping she'll write another like The Forgotten Garden, which was my favorite of hers. 3y
LitHousewife I have read The Forgotten Garden. I have read The House at Riverton. It was okay. With how popular she's become, I had assumed she'd gotten better. Maybe I'll give The Lake House to my mom. She might like it. Boo I say again. 3y
missfarin @LitHousewife Right?! Sigh. 3y
Landagail I too have loved her on the past but have found she has fallen into the formula writing of Jodi picoilt 3y

Why isn't this series on everyone's radar?! Graham's books offer a fascinating glimpse into life in Cornwall in the late 18th century, with fantastically drawn characters (Ross and Demelza are my favorite new OTP). Highly recommend.

Irisheyz77 I've been thinking of starting the show 3y
acg I've actually got a copy and am planning on starting it soon! 3y
GuninActOne Have you watched the show too? I'm kicking myself for missing it. The first episode was excellent 3y
missfarin I haven't! But I'm going to try and see if it's still available on the PBS website, because I'm dying to watch. 3y

When your current self is really grateful to your past self for taking out the first two books in a series so you won't have to leave the universe if you end up loving book 1. Which I did. Like, a lot.

No surprise, this book is just as engaging as the show. A fascinating glimpse into midwifery and health care in 1950s Britain, with plenty of memorable characters along the way.
