So hard to review. A pick because I couldn‘t put down. As a debut novel it certainly gave me enough to want to read more by the author.
Funny, bonkers, critical of the world.
Sometimes too many things going on.
Some beautiful writing that I read over quite a few times.
Definitely worth a read for something different, but occasionally trying to hard to be so.
Ok I can‘t make my friggin mind up 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

squirrelbrain I reserved this at the library and it was going to be Sept, but has moved nearer by a few weeks… definitely intrigued now! 1w

I loved this, but don‘t read for anything related to the version of Joan we have all heard over the years! It‘s quite slow at the beginning -think Matrix/ Hamnet, but warms up.

About 20% through Poverty Safari which is very real life depressing and only to be read in small doses.
Truly, Darkly, Deeply- good serial killer book with a good twist.
Tomorrow- really enjoyed ❤️

This wasn‘t even on my radar this morning. I was reading some articles about the Harrogate Crime Festival and this one got a few shout outs- so obviously I had to go and get and read immediately.

Mehso-so

I love a good detective/serial killer story- and the police side of catching the killer was great.
I don‘t know if I‘ve just become a grumpy old cow- but the misogyny and casual relationship/sex and constant descriptions of women‘s boobs and thighs just spoiled the story for me. Not sure if I‘ll give anymore a go.

MicheleinPhilly EW. Hard pass. 3w

Caroline2 Oh that sort of thing gets right up my goat too. 🐐 😠 3w
Ruthiella I suspect they get more enlightened as the series continues and the author becomes more aware. I‘ve noted in reading the Amelia Peabody series that the author became much more sensitive to colonialism and racism in the books published later in the series. 3w

Our Fathers was quite sad and melancholy and I loved it.
This Time Tomorrow was lovely.
Started new series with Rules of Prey, thinking I probably started this too late as the 1980s vibe is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. Does every woman need to be described by their boob size 🤷‍♀️

Hooked_on_books I think if all women are described by their boob size, then all men should be described by how large their bulge is. 3w

Much more than only a love story, an insight into day to day living during The Troubles in Belfast. There is very little ‘romance‘ in this love story, more a lesson in how bigotry kills people and communities.

I have to admit for ages I was put off by the cover even though I have really liked the authors other books. It just didn‘t look like something I‘d be interested in.

Well, two pages from the end and I still hadn‘t guessed the killer. Usual intricate plot and twists from Cleeves.

Been a bit distracted by the news and living in hope for a bit!
Managed 20%, but struggling.

Bookwormjillk Do you do audiobooks? I made it halfway pretty painlessly today. But then again we‘re having a slow news day here today. 1mo

Meredith, Alone | Claire Alexander

Pickpick

Meredith is a great character, coping with a huge life changing, shitty thing that happens to her. And a crap mother.
You want to be her friend and hug her and have a little cry.

squirrelbrain Oh good, you liked it! I *may* get to it soon…or not! 1mo
TrishB @squirrelbrain I think you‘ll like it when you get to it! 1mo
