Making progress! @trishb @squirrelbrain @rockpools

PS I hope no one is offended by the naked book. I had to undress it.

DrexEdit I always undress my hardcovers to preserve the jacket while I read the book! 💜👍 1d
kathedron I didn't realise it was such a chunkster! 1d
Mccall0113 The description has blown my mind! 1d

squirrelbrain So do I @DrexEdit ! How are you finding it @Oryx? 1d
Soubhiville I don‘t take the jacket off on smaller books, but I did on this chunkster too. I‘m just starting book 2! 1d
rockpools Book? What book? All I can see are badgers 🦡! (It‘s like Eighth Life all over again - if I never actually see it in the wild, the chunksterness doesn‘t exist 😜). Also, though, hmm. I wonder if I‘d be more likely to read my hardcovers if they took their coats off 🤔. 1d
Oryx @squirrelbrain I really like it. It's very immersive - I think that I'll read 20 minutes in bed before going to sleep and I look up and 40 minutes have passed. I'm interested to see how (if) it all ties together. Did you finish yet? 1d
Oryx @rockpools just badgers here, continue about your business and enjoy the novella To Paradise. 1d
Oryx @Soubhiville same - the bigger the book, the more likely it is to get damaged somehow. How are you liking To Paradise so far? 1d
TrishB Cool 👍🏻 glad you‘re enjoying. 1d
Soubhiville It‘s very good- very emotional. You‘re right I get lost in it every time I pick it up. 1d

The Turnout | Megan Abbott
post image
Mehso-so

Megan Abbott is usually an automatic pick for me, but this one was just ok. It's beautifully written and so atmospheric, but also a bit... icky? She does capture a certain griminess and darkness very well though.

But, I received some iced biscuits from work, and they were perfectly themed for this book, which features The Nutcracker. So it gave me an excuse to eat The Nutcracker himself. He was delicious.

squirrelbrain Shame about the book, but cute biscuit! 1mo
Oryx @squirrelbrain it was very 'readable' and I flew through it, but just not very appealing in the end. 1mo

Always nice when you pick a book without knowing anything about it or the author, and it turns out to be a good one. It's set in 1960s Iceland, and it's about a young woman who wants to become a writer. The writing is beautiful. I loved it's exploration of what it was like to be a woman at that time in Iceland. And what daily life in Iceland was like. Definitely will seek out more by this author. And also makes me want to go back to Iceland
