#HeartstoneBuddyRead

Chapter 22 the Great Lindworm has awoken and is leaving death and destruction in its path. The Rangers and Riders are amassing to do battle.

Alastair and Akarra take Aliza home to aid her grieving family as Ledya has run off with Wydrick to find her adventure.

What do you think of Alastair‘s transformation so far? Has he redeemed himself?

BarkingMadRead He seems to be really trying to be a better person. I have high hopes for him! 2d
Ruthiella He‘s definitely improving, or rather showing his true self! 2d
CrowCAH @BarkingMadRead @Ruthiella I agree he is improving upon acquaintance. 2d

julieclair I am liking him more and more. 2d
i.besteph I‘m still catching up! 😅 @CrowCAH will you be hosting a buddy read for the 2nd book? 23h
ElizaMarie I don‘t think he is necessarily “redeeming” himself. I feel like his true character is really coming out. He has many layers. But I‘m really liking his personality. 5h

Using my break to finish up this #furrowedmiddlebrowclub title, which I appreciated more than liked. I found the writing a bit plodding and I didn't really connect with any of the characters. I did like the focus on the demobbed dealing with life on Civvy Street, the contrast between those who served and those on the homefront and that Beauchamp didn't shy away from class issues. I just wish it were a little more heart and a little less head.

catebutler I'm finishing up today, and my thoughts and opinions reflect yours. 3d
Ruthiella I agree that none of the characters were particularly sympathetic. Not even Helen. But I did like it for its real time glimpse of the immediate aftermath of WWII for some Britons. 2d

quietjenn @Ruthiella yes, I thought it really worked as a snapshot of this time. 2d
CarolynM Yes, the characters were there as representatives of particular experiences more than fully fleshed out people. Still an enjoyable read for me. 2d
batsy I too found the writing a bit plodding. It did feel like a life-like snapshot into a particular time and place, especially since the characters were not wholly likeable and we could see them from the start with their warts and all 🙂 2d
jlhammar Great to get your thoughts! I hear what you‘re saying about heart vs head and the writing. It really was different (interesting is the word that kept coming to mind), but I quite enjoyed it for what it was. 2d
LeahBergen I found the writing made it initially a bit hard for me to get into to the story but I ended up enjoying it. 2d
Cathythoughts I really enjoyed this book. I felt there was a depth to it. I didn‘t notice the plodding writing 🙈. I enjoyed it for what it was too @jlhammar👍🏻♥️ 2d
Jess_Read_This As a late to reading it group member, I‘ve been loving reading all the different experiences everyone has had reading this book! Great review! 2d

Thanks for the tag, @TheSpineView

My favorite restaurant is our neighborhood Italian restaurant, Agliolio‘s in Wellington, Florida. Delicious homemade pasta, world‘s best garlic bread, fantastic everything. Having lunch there on Thursday with a friend.

I love books that involve food, especially when there are recipes included.

@dabbe @Texreader @tpixie , want to play?

jamield1993 Oooh, I could just eat some garlic bread 🤤🤤🤤 4d
Lynnsoprano @jamield1993 I know what you mean! Theirs comes dripping olive oil, and I‘d be perfectly happy with a couple plates of that and nothing else 😂😋 4d
jamield1993 @Lynnsoprano Sold 🤣 throw in a bowl of olives and a nice chilled white wine and that's the dream! 4d

tpixie @Lynnsoprano thanks for the tag! Yum! I love dipping bread and olive oil and pepper!! I‘ll play a little later today when I get a chance! 4d
CatMS Recently moved to Kalamazoo Mi and still trying to find good restaurants. Would love to find great Italian, and Mexican restaurants. The books including food that I like are usually written by chefs. 4d
TheSpineView ❤️ ❤️❤️❤️❤️ pasta. Now I am craving Italian! No really good Italian near me. 😕 Thanks for playing 3d

Anyone else doing #TransRightsReadathon? Anyone know Sim_Bookstagrams_Badly or know if they‘re over here under another name?
This one features at least a trans main character, there may be others I don‘t recall from my first time through several years ago.

TheBookHippie There are about 10 of us doing this here. When I informed them of us here on Litsy, they had never heard of us. 💕🏳️‍⚧️🙃 but they know now and they listed us on the graph! 3d
kgriffith @TheBookHippie awesome, glad to see a few others! 🫶🏼 3d
