Whoo! What a wild ride! Delicate, intentional, strange and disturbing , I understand the hype now. It‘s definitely a pick, I‘ll be thinking about this one for a long time. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #readharderchallenge #bookintranslation

How do you read short stories? I prefer to tab the start of each one and write my rating for each story on the tabs once finished. I use my #bookdarts to still mark favourite quotes.
Pedro is just about the same size of the book and you can make out Bindi as the black shape in the left hand corner

I didn't love the MC, but boy did I love the cold chill of the setting! A snowed-in claustrophobic small town in northern Iceland is the best setting for secrets and murder.

I‘m staying in a hostel in Moab. You know it‘s a blue town in a red state when the coffee table books are “The Vagina Monologues” and a surreal, alt reality #BookInTranslation by a #WOC. I would seriously consider moving here if it weren‘t so blasted hot. I want to meet the people who run this place! I think we could be friends! I‘m sad I won‘t have the time to read their coffee table books. Maybe they‘ll let me do an exchange?😂

Reading 1Q84 for @shipslogclub book club on my new bed, hoping the extra time will help break it in. I‘m a third of the way through this book and honestly can‘t decide if I like it or not. #specfic #bookintranslation #thelongread

Natasha.C.Barnes If you wanted to join in on the loose #yearofthechunkster challenge, this would certainly qualify!! 2y
AshHisson @Natasha.C.Barnes I‘m intrigued, what‘s the #yearofthechunkster challenge? 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @AshHisson So @Ashley_Nicoletto is running it and (in my understanding) it's basically just the idea of committing to reading more "chunksters" this year (some debate on what page number range constitutes a chunkster). Less of a challenge, more of a cheer squad with a shared goal, perhaps? Right now many of us are doing a buddy read of The Luminaries, maybe more buddy reads will arise. 2y

Ashley_Nicoletto @Natasha.C.Barnes You nailed it. A giant cheer squad is a great way of looking at it. I think we could definitely put together more buddy reads if others wanted them. 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @Ashley_Nicoletto Yeah, we should just compare notes after luminaries, see if we have any shared TBR chunksters! 2y
Ashley_Nicoletto And I think what constitutes a chunkster could be up to you. I chose books over 500 pages, but some of people have looked at this as more large books with difficult content. 2y
AshHisson @Ashley_Nicoletto @Natasha.C.Barnes Okay, that sounds great. I definitely have more than a few chunksters in my TBR. And buddy reads are great. 2y
