Mccall0113 Do you have any recommendations that are similar to Circe. I‘m also thinking down Roth song of Achilles. Loved them both 3d

I got this for free years back at my library. This book took me completely by surprise. It went much, much deeper and darker than I would have imagined. There's a lot to unpack in this one. A very interesting read for sure.

I haven't read any WWII historical fiction in ages. I guess I've been burned out on it. My other book was a DNF.
I got this last Christmas from my bestie and am just now getting around to giving it a go.

Wow, what a wild ride this book is, all the way through. I'm honestly not even sure I can really fully comprehend what I've just finished. This book is like no other. I don't even know whether to give it 4 or 5 stars. I will be chewing this one a while.

Cloud Cuckoo Land | Anthony Doerr

But as he reconstructs Zeno's translation, he realizes that the truth is infinitely more complicated, that we are all beautiful even as we are all part of the problem, and that to be a part of the problem is to be human.

I've been up for several hours and decided I might as well read if I can't sleep. This is probably going to be my last book for 2021..
Glad I picked a good one to end the year with.
222/622 so far.

Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams

I mean, so-so. A woman goes through a breakup, has a breakdown and starts sleeping around, including an incident with a colleague that comes to bite her in the ass with getting fired. Her besties are there for her thru it all as she picks the pieces of her life and attempts to put them back together. Not an earth shattering book, but it was ok.

Even at over 500 pages, I managed to devour this in 2 days. I found it really enjoyable, right up to the end. The end is what took it from a five to a four star book for me. But still very enjoyable.

Reincarnation Blues | Michael Poore

I was reading Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese but it's a library book and it's due back before I can finish. I also just realized I bought it, like, last month 😳 so I'll take it back to the library and reread it sometime at my leisure.
I've had Reincarnation Blues for a long while now. I'd saved it for a potential buddy read but realized that's not gonna happen because the tbr pile is just too big.
The cover is beautiful hope I like it

Ugh I'm so ready to be done with this book 😑
I'm not entertained

marleed I recently finished this. I actually liked the book - until I heard the author‘s ‘stand by your man‘ defense of the father at the expense of a daughter. I was actually offended while listening to her take. I think about it every time I walk by my book on my shelves. I think I need to donate my copy of the book! 2mo
perfectsinner Ugh. I kinda knew what was gonna happen before I read it thanks to reviews but man this book has a lot of problems for me and partly maybe I just don't like how it's told. My mom read it before I did and she really liked it. I realized within 50 pages it was going to be donated. The good news is my hold of Malibu Rising finally came in after a 26 week wait! 2mo

Hanging out with my best friend. We visited a used book store . I got 14 books for under $60. Lonesome Dove is for my mom for Christmas. Memoirs is a better edition than my mass market paperback copy. The Winter People is autographed.

11/22/63: A Novel | Stephen King

Pickpick

was a bit dubious at first..I mean... traveling back in time to save JFK?! 🤔 Definitely not my usual kind of book, for sure. But this book slowly grew on me and sucked me in. I became invested in Jake/George and the other characters in this novel. At times King definitely took his sweet time getting to the actual events of the title of the book, 11/22/63, because we don't actually get to the day in question until part 5.

BoleyBooks This is one of my favs! 😊 3mo

Stopped by the library because my internet is having issues
Scored these 4 books for $1
(There's also a used library sale starting Wed I plan on visiting)
Hidden Valley Road, Robert Kolker
The 100-Year-Old Man..., Jonas Jonasson
We Were The Lucky Ones, Georgia Hunter
Calypso, David Sedaris

All were on my want to reads list except The 100 year old man.... not sure if I'll like that one, but for a quarter, I'll give it a shot

perfectsinner @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 yes I saw this a few hours ago on Buzzfeed. I was glad to know it wasn't just me or my internet. Facebook is my only social... just use it for crystal and book groups, mostly. Facebook is back now but still temperamental... can't comment on posts or react, it seems, and not 100% if my chats are going through. 3mo

I won this through Goodreads in exchange for an honest review. Am interesting memoir about all the adventures of her life, thru the strained relationships with her parents and her many countless relationships with partners, usually to thr consternation and disapproval of her parents. Decent read and a pretty short book. 3 star.

Off until the 11th
I'm not a King fan. I've heard high praise about this so here's hoping... Green Mile and Rita Hayworth are on my want to reads list as well, but a dear book friend was kind enough to send me this copy. I've just been waiting to start it so I could actually read more than a few pages/chapter at a time. Work is at it's busiest right now, so I literally get home and only have time to eat before it's basically bedtime.

TiredLibrarian I'm not a big King reader either, but I enjoyed this one. It's a bit slow in the beginning, but picks up as it goes along, and it's very imaginative. I also enjoyed this one. 4mo
perfectsinner I've heard really good things about this one so I'm hopeful. Seen a lot of praise for his new one, too. 4mo

what a crazy ride that was! This book has so much depth and emotion. I was highlighting phrases and quotes at only 20 pages in. This book has depth and soul. It's very violent, yes. But it also tugs at your heartstrings because it's a story about loss, regrets, redemption, vengeance... this book has everything! Easily five stars and one of the best books I've read this year. Do yourself a favour and read it.

I have a king size bag of Reese's pieces, a bag of lifesaver gummies, a 44 Oz Mountain Dew, and I've been in bed reading Razorblade Tears by S.A. Cosby since 7 am 🙂 I am 43% through, and this book is so damn good! I feel I'm gonna have a book hangover after this one.

quote

"Life sends us down some strange roads on our way to our destiny.”
― S.A. Cosby, Razorblade Tears

quote
perfectsinner

"Tears ran from his eyes and stung his cheeks. Tears for his son. Tears for his wife. Tears for the little girl they had to raise. Tears for who they were and what they all had lost. Each drop felt like it was slicing his face open like a razorblade.”
― S.A. Cosby, Razorblade Tears

quote
perfectsinner

"But time was a river made of quicksilver. It slipped through his grasp even as it enveloped him. Twenty became forty. Winter became spring, and before he knew it he was an old man burying his son and wondering where in the hell that river had taken him.”
