For the last two hours, I've been asleep, sitting on a fashionable novel. It's the only part of the body you can read it with.

Human Matter: A Fiction | Rodrigo Rey Rosa
post image

A novel based on real events, written in a non-fictional manner. It begins as a journalist‘s research notes from a visit to a newly surfaced archive of secret police records. But as the narrator digs deeper into the files, his access is denied and it becomes a journal of his continued investigations, leading to the discovery related to a traumatic event suffered by his mother. I didn‘t get the revelation, because I didn‘t pay attention the names.

You Exist Too Much | Zaina Arafat
post image

A typical coming-of-age story with an atypical narrator. A bisexual Palestinian-American, she is unable to please her mother. An outsider both in America and during summers spent in the Middle East, she sabotages mundane relationships by pursuing idealistic, impossible ones. A breakup sends her into treatment, which doesn‘t solve her “love-addition” but interrupts her behavior enough to (eventually) make choices rather than following compulsions.

Liz_M The novel reminds me a lot of the tagged – it‘s a counterpoint to that novel‘s coming-of-age daughter-of-Turkish-immigrants protagonist that was too much in her head, overthinking and philosophizing and not making emotional/physical connections. 5mo
Liz_M 3⭐ #TBRtarot : Book that starts with “You.“

I did not get much reading done in September, but this probably would have been the best book of the month regardless. All the feels.

#12booksof2023 May saw the reunion of the #BandofTrollopes with a loose buddy read of the third book in the Barchester series. The language takes a minute to get used to, but then it is a joy to sink into these gentle comedies.

Another book chosen for its location, but this was also brought to my attention from the many Litsy reviews. Loved the unusual protagonist and the portrayal of how her illness dictated her days.

Tamra I have thought about this one since I read it earlier this year. (edited) 6mo

BEFORE the reader is introduced to the modest country medical practitioner who is to be the chief personage of the following tale, it will be well that he should be made acquainted with some particulars as to the locality in which, and the neighbours among whom, our doctor followed his profession.


And I'm off, on an early start #Trollopeing through Barsetshire.

Billypar Gotta love an opening line that includes both "in which" and "among whom" ? 14mo
Liz_M @Billypar It takes a minute to adjust to the language! I might have fallen asleep in the first chapter. 🤣 14mo

This chunkier doesn't have an electronic version, so starting a new morning routine to read a dozen pages each day.
