First weekend off in a LONG time, so first #bookreport also in a long time!

It looks like I‘ve read loads, but a lot of them are really short.

Sigh, Gone is one of my faves of the year so far, and I was surprised to enjoy Babel.

The bottom 3 are ongoing; will probably finish Elena today. One True Loves is on audio for #aam, and just started Really Good, Actually, which seems sharply funny so far.

Cinfhen Yay for weekend off!!!! Enjoy 🥳 2d
Deblovestoread Great week! Enjoy your weekend 2d
TrishB Enjoy your weekend and your reading ❤️ 2d

Megabooks Interested to read what you think about 2d
Megabooks I liked it at first but she wore on me as a character. 2d
squirrelbrain I‘ll let you know @Megabooks - she‘s not annoying me yet, but I was starting to think I‘m not the ‘target market‘ for this book, not being a millennial! 2d
Megabooks Yeah, it definitely made me feel old! 2d
Megabooks Also I‘m really glad you FINALLY got a weekend off!! 💜 2d

Evidence of the Affair | Taylor Jenkins Reid
post image

Thanks to @KarenUK for putting this on my #readersradar last night. (And for the #pop23 prompt! 😁) Set in the 1970s, a doctor‘s wife discovers her husband‘s affair and starts writing to the other woman‘s husband, and we also see letters between the doctor and his paramour.

It‘s only a short story / novella but still packs a punch and there‘s room for a bit of a twist too.

KarenUK Glad you enjoyed it…. And after reading this, I just found out from one of my booksellers that all her books are set in the same ‘universe‘! Apparently there‘s an overlap of a character in every book…. (In this one she mentions a Daisy Jones LP) 2d
CBee Yay for 70s babies 🙌🏻🙌🏻 2d

squirrelbrain @KarenUK - I noticed the Daisy reference. Mick Riva was also mentioned, who was in both of the other 2 TJR books that I‘ve read.(Evelyn Hugo and Malibu Rising). 2d
OriginalCyn620 On my tbr! 2d
Ruthiella I‘ve only read Daisy Jones by TJR and I didn‘t really like it. I need to give another book from her a chance. Maybe Evelyn Hugo? 🤔 (edited) 2d
squirrelbrain Yes, I would say Evelyn Hugo is the best one I‘ve read of hers @Ruthiella 2d
Cortg @Ruthiella I loved Evelyn Hugo! My favorite by her as well. 2d
Cortg I wasn‘t aware of this title, I‘ll have to check it out! 2d

One True Loves | Taylor Jenkins Reid
post image

Contemporary romance is definitely not my genre, but I enjoyed this #LoveTriangle #AuthorAMonth. Why I do challenges!

Emma married her high school sweetheart Jesse. Together they traveled the world, but when Jesse takes a solo helicopter trip, he is lost at sea. Emma heads back home deep in grief. After a time, she reconnects with Sam and takes over her parents‘ bookstore. Miraculously Jesse survived at sea. Can one woman have two true loves?

Cinfhen Ohhhhh…. I‘m planning on this one for #AAM 😍glad to know it works for #lovetriangle 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 2d
Soubhiville Actually that may change my game plan, if it‘s good for #lovetriangle. It‘s one of the ones I haven‘t read yet 🙂📚. 2d

marleed I‘ve been looking forward to the adaptation of this ever since I saw Phillipa Soo (from Hamilton) was cast in the role of Emma. 2d

Evidence of the Affair | Taylor Jenkins Reid
post image

An epistolary novella, set in the seventies….. A wife of a doctor discovers the evidence of the title. As she connects with the wronged husband on the other end of the affair, a friendship forms. Told through letters between both couples, it‘s a fairly straightforward story, but the ending has a satisfying conclusion.

All finished books were picks. I bailed on Future Home, but I will finish The Birchbark House for #aam in January.
Instead of starting something new, I‘m going to return to Swan Song as I have been neglecting it since December. Totally not the books fault as I was loving it. Not sure what audio I will start next.

5feet.of.fury Did you like Lavender House? 1w
Bookzombie @5feet.of.fury Yes! I loved it! Thanks for picking it. 🙂 1w
Cinfhen I had trouble with my Erdrich books this month too. Not sure why exactly but I‘m ready to move on… 1w

Bookzombie @Cinfhen I think it may have been what I chose. 🙂 I hope your trip is going well and you are having a great time! 7d
Reggie I hope Swan Song gets its clutches into you and doesn‘t let go. 4d
Bookzombie @Reggie It has! Even though I haven‘t had as much reading time this week, I‘m thinking about it when I‘m not reading it. 2d

The Night Watchman | Louise Erdrich

I‘ve been seeing this one get such amazing reviews and my hold of it finally came in so I thought I‘d try to sneak 1 more in for #AAM, but the first 100 pages aren‘t holding my interest so I‘m bailing for now, maybe I‘ll try again sometime when I‘m in a different frame of mind. @Soubhiville

tpixie I finished it because it was for a bookclub, but I didn‘t enjoy 1w
IndoorDame @tpixie that one I really liked, but it seemed to be one of those love it or hate it books 1w
LitStephanie I loved this book, but you totally should bail if something doesn't hold your interest. Just because other people think it is great doesn't mean everyone will. 1w
tpixie @IndoorDame I‘ve only seen people loving it, but it didn‘t win awards with our @litsybookclub. We loved the characters, but thought too many stories joined in the mix. Oh well! Onto the next book!! 1w
