Soul Tourists | Bernardine Evaristo
post image

Stanley has recently lost his father. Jessie works in a bar. One day these to meet. Before they know it they are traveling across Europe together in Jessie‘s old car.

I love Evaristo‘s writing and how she mixes prose and poetry. I loved Sanley‘s connection to the past and how that made it possible for us to learn more about the places they visit.

A friend came to the Library Book Sale to find this book. Alas,no copy to be had. I said,”I have a copy that I can lend you”. Since it was #TBR on my shelves, I decided to read it first. I am glad that I did. The writing pulled me in, and did not let go. My plan had been to read a book by her to honor her recent death. My friend‘s request made it happen. #weremember #2005 #192025

This is the second book in Stross's Merchant Princes series, which was nominated for a 2022 Hugo Best Series award. It's a low pick for me. There are weaknesses but I enjoyed it more than the first book and like it enough to continue the series.

This is my #BookSpin choice for July. #BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

It also fills my #2005 slot for the #192025 challenge. @Librarybelle

Librarybelle Hooray! 7mo

The Aosawa Murders | Riku Onda
post image

A slowly unraveling story about a murder that took place years ago and was never resolved. Different people remember the tragedy and share their point of view. The plot and the twist aren‘t that mindblowing but I can read such Japanese books anytime, just for their setting.

Deep sadness and grief are familiar to everyone, the feelings that everyone has experienced, but yet these are the same emotions that isolate us from others. Sad, intimate story about loss and isolation …

Simona @Ruthiella My first book by her, but definitely not the last. 13mo
Librarybelle Such a great choice! 13mo
Simona @Librarybelle Thank you, I‘m pleased with my choice too 😘 13mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage This book addresses such a difficult topic and Didion does a beautiful job. I pick a copy up to share every time I see one in a used book shop. Sadly, there are always people who can relate. 13mo
Simona @BarbaraTheBibliophage Sadly, yes … and I can see how comforting this book could be. 13mo

Cedricsmom Ohhhh this one. The movie absolutely destroys me every time I watch it. Definitely better than the book. 4y
TheBee @Cedricsmom I haven‘t seen it. Wanted to give it some time after finishing the book. But will definitely watch it some day! 😉 4y

Misfortune | Wesley Stace
post image

A 500-page romp in early 19th century England, featuring a boy foundling raised as a girl heir. Wordplay, goofiness, rich snobs, books, and intrigue all come together--and it wraps up neatly at the end. I kind of feel like I need to read it again to catch the details in the appendix! #192019 #2005

Zelma That has been on my TBR for possibly a decade. I really need to get to it. 5y
