Kitty helping me read. Something good, something bad, or nothing going on? Take a drink 🍻
This book is okay. A little *too* much j/k #hashtagthisisalonghashtag lolyoudumfuk.com stream of consciousness blathering but I love her honesty (especially about money, I realized while reading this that everyone is very tight lipped about money but will overshare their sexcapades at the drop of a hat).
I got The Library Book from, where else, but the library. Have heard terrible things about the narration (read by the author, ouch). But I‘m about one cd in and it‘s totally fine! Which I‘m grateful for bc my CD player doesn‘t have a 1.25x speed like the audible app does.
I really am enjoying this book! Working on the movie casting in my head. I keep thinking Hailee Steinfeld for Daisy. Jake Gyllenhaal or, I can‘t stand him, James Franco looking dude for Billy. Simone would have to be Zoe Kravitz obv and ugh Reese needs to make this into a miniseries ASAP (HBO plz, not Netflix).
Huge fan of Camila (Billy‘s wife). Huge fan of Daisy (Billy‘s bandmate). I feel like they‘re going to come to a crossroads soon though 🥺 Also don‘t read this right after you watch A Star is Born unless you wanna be humming Shallows while they‘re talking about Honeycomb 🍯
Beyoncé in the background and ravens in the front? Excited to finally start this one. Nonfiction. This guy does something with ravens at the Tower of London.

#libraryhaul what should I read first
Cool, more books for my TBR pile 🥴 This book wasn‘t AMAZING or anything, but it did inspire me to buy a domain name so it was definitely an influential read 4 me! Get this if you‘re a blogger or Tweeter.
A lot of graphic novels in today‘s #libraryhaul. But I‘m gonna stop my current audiobook for my commute and switch with Harper‘s Force of Nature. Coworkers, retreat in the woods, someone doesn‘t come back .... my body is ready.
The book started off promising, but I found the main conflict to be something hard to care about bc it‘s just a high schooler kind of overreacting about something. But it‘s not bad! You got a plus-size lesbian main character so that‘s fun.
The library was out of all the overdrive and hardback versions of Sharp Objects. But I have a CD player and snagged the audio discs 😅 The tv show was SO dark. I hardly ever read books after I see the tv show, but I love Gillian Flynn and so time to try new things and read AFTER the tv show.
I finally finished this 33 hour listen #whew. I wouldn‘t recommend this book to anyone and I‘m not quite sure if it‘s the “great American gay novel.” I was tired of Jude always apologizing. But it‘s well written, and the story is affecting, and the characters are fleshed out (although their circumstances are unrealistic). 4/5 would not read again
I thought this book would not measure up to the buzz. But so far it‘s reading well! The “obsessive search” in the title put me off for some reason, but the obsessive search is actually well researched and reads like a fiction book. I forgot McNamara was Patton Oswalt‘s late wife!
