Wow 😮 there‘s a bit of everything in this one!! I think this is my favourite so far. The plot is great, so much going on and the personal stories take a huge leap.
Loved it 👍🏻♥️

Andrew65 Must get back to this series, only read the first one. 9h
JennyM Just finished the first one this weekend...absolutely loved it. 9h

Nearly half way through and bailed. The first story is really hard hitting and I think it set up expectations. Some I didn‘t understand at all and none I was very impressed with after the first. Didn‘t want to pick up again this morning!!
Buddy read failure strikes again!

Angitron Totally agree with you! The first story is so sharp, but the rest are a disappointment. 6d
Lindy I felt intellectually engaged with this collection and appreciated that aspect very much. I‘m not always in that frame of mind and, if I hadn‘t been, I probably would have bailed also. 6d
TrishB @Angitron that‘s definitely how I felt! 5d
TrishB @Lindy I think when I‘m mad busy in work that I shouldn‘t attempt the intellectual as my brain just wants entertainment!! 5d

Started for our buddy read @Cinfhen @Hooked_on_books hadn‘t realised it was short stories! Read the first one as watching the footie on the telly.....as the racist abuse unfolds on a black player ☹️

Balibee146 Shocking abuse... 😡😡 6d
Cinfhen I‘ll start tomorrow ~ 6d
TrishB @Balibee146 it‘s absolutely disgusting. I don‘t think I‘d be able to carry on playing. Why should they? Would anyone else be expected to sit in work whilst people shout racist abuse at them? 6d

TrishB @Cinfhen I‘m scratching my head a bit!! 6d
Cinfhen Uh oh!! That doesn‘t bode well for me 😳I‘m generally NOT a fan of short story collections 6d
TrishB @Cinfhen me neither! The first one is shocking and makes you want to read on. I haven‘t understood a couple at all and now I‘m at 50% and thinking if I want another 50%! Not sure what I‘m missing..... 6d
Billypar I liked the messages behind the stories, but not the stories themselves. The only one I enjoyed was 'The Hospital Where' - not sure if you got to that one yet. I thought it was strange in a good way, unfolding like a dream. 6d
Cinfhen I‘ve seen lots of mixed reviews, including the PAN from @Billypar ( that makes me nervous because Vinny generally likes short stories or eclectic endeavors 😜) Feel free to bail, Trish!! I‘m gonna start this morning ( my parents are going to visit relatives for the next 2 days so I‘m good to go👍🏽) 6d
TrishB @Billypar @Cinfhen I liked the messages and the first story is impressive. But it‘s gone downhill since! 6d

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane

Very torn between a pick and a so-so. Gone for a pick because I read in one afternoon and really wanted to know what happened. My biggest gripe is that sometimes I thought it was written in the 1950s!! More below.

TrishB The treatment of mental health issues just didn‘t sit right for the time period!! That‘s why I kept having to check the timings. It felt old and not addressed at all - very obvious issues and not dealt with at all. 2w
TrishB Thanks Cathy- definitely an interesting read. @Cathythoughts 2w

Thank you Misty ❤️ they both arrived on the same day! I didn‘t realise one was a birthday card, so will now save and put up on my birthday.
I posted a card to you a couple of weeks ago- hoping it arrives soon 😁

The writing takes a bit to get into, felt very ‘choppy‘ , lots of POVs and timelines. But worth it for the story which was good and sad 😢
Last book of September, squeezed in.

MicheleinPhilly I bought this ages ago because of the cover. I really should make it a priority. 3w
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly I think you‘ll like it 🤞🏻 3w
MicheleinPhilly Have pulled it from shelf. Need to finish one of the three books I have ongoing. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3w

TrishB @Bookwomble @arlenefinnigan reading some interesting stuff about her today. She was nearly actually interned during the war as she was married to an Italian!! She went to America and had to come back without him to carry on her career. 3w

2nd one in the series and a good read 👍🏻 I‘m trying not to start any new series for a few months, so I‘ve downloaded the other two available in this series!

Cathythoughts Oh great. Must be good so 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3w
MicheleinPhilly No new series for a few months??? 😮 I am curious to see how this plays out. 😉 3w
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly why does no 1 in a series seem so much more alluring 🤷‍♀️ 3w
MicheleinPhilly Great question that I do not have the answer to. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3w

Some hairdresser reading 😁 not had a minute to read properly the last few days so looking forward to getting into this one.

squirrelbrain Are you having a change of hair colour today? ❤️💜 or maybe even 💙?! 3w
TrishB @squirrelbrain the red is just about a colour I like now, not changing yet. I‘ve had blue before but too many comments about Everton so never again! 3w
Cathythoughts Oh interesting, this is the second in this series?! Loved the first one. ( for #booked2019 ) 3w

Apparently the inspiration for the band name. If we had a contender for best Scouse band the other day, we have a contender for worse now!!
Although, begrudgingly, I love this song - especially the 12 inch version (remember those!?) the intro is brilliant.

Ruthiella Hated that book but I do love the song as well as their other hits from the 80s. 😍 3w
CarolynM I hated the song back in the day too, but now I just sing along😂 3w
arlenefinnigan I kind of like them 😉 3w

erzascarletbookgasm Ha, clever! 3w
TrishB @Ruthiella I haven‘t read the book! 3w
TrishB @CarolynM I definitely sing a long! 3w
TrishB @arlenefinnigan in that cheesy 80s way. 3w
arlenefinnigan Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You) is a better song, but I thought I Ran would be a better prompt. 3w
TrishB @arlenefinnigan now that one is in my head!! 3w
