#Chunkster

Holy 1k + #chunkster. And half of it not needed. Y'all this was a slog and half. I normally like to read a book before watching the show based off the book. This was nearly a DNF. Just pure stubborn determination had me finishing this. Not worth it to be honest. And what's the deal with that ending? Yikes. This did NOT make the keepershelf.

Enchanted_Bibliophile Read the other 2 books and then this one will make sense, even the parts you now think are unnecessary. They are much shorter than this one. 😉 5d
KristiAhlers @Enchanted_Bibliophile oh OK. Thanks for the heads up. I'll do that. 4d

I'm about 1/4 into this #chunkster. There is a meme/saying going around: "Make Orwell fiction again." I think the same can be said of Rand. Everything I'm seeing in this book has its reality in our current world to some degree. Scary.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ To pay off student debt, Beaton headed west to the Alberta oil sands for a quick buck. This encapsulated society exposed her to gendered violence and the detrimental effects on local First Nations peoples. The blatant misogyny in these camps was sickening, but felt unavoidable and impossible to report. Weighed down by her debt, she stayed, then created a beautiful art piece about it. A beautiful #chunkster of a graphic memoir!

Book 1 for #Sharreadathon to honor @sharread
Book 6 in the KOTLC series that I‘m reading with my daughter. Messenger does a great job weaving storylines and creating characters you get invested in.

Interweaving narratives centering around a boarding house in south London.1938 -1940. The characters simultaneously avoid each other yet get caught up in each others lives. Themes of city life, class consciousness, war, murder, fear and survival. Loved it.

dabbe You should get credit for reading a #chunkster as well! 😊 1w
Cuilin @dabbe yes at over 700 pages but it didn‘t feel like a chunkster when I was reading it. Now that‘s great writing. 1w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ the next book in the series (which will be book 2) comes out at the end of the month! This was such a good story and the cliffhanger will leave you needing to know what will happen next. This #chunkster has made it onto my keeper shelf for sure!

I love that we‘re reading the #Clarissa letters the same day each was written! Such a special way to enjoy this!

This is the 3rd #chunkster #buddyread I‘ve joined, so I had to go with an ebook for this one to minimize the chaos. But I detest the cover of my e-copy! Since we‘ll be spending time with this one all year, I‘ve decided I need to change the image. I found dozens of different editions online. Which would you pick?

Lcsmcat I know it‘s not period-appropriate, but I have to like center bottom row. 😀 2w
tpixie Hard pick. Least favorite is top middle. @Lcsmcat the wavy hair IS mesmerizing 😵‍💫 2w
IndoorDame @Lcsmcat I love that one too! It‘s from a release that has the B&W portrait of a different gorgeous woman on the cover of each of the volumes. @tpixie Mesmerizing is the perfect word for her hair! It‘s what makes this one my favorite of all the portraits. (edited) 2w

Liz_M What? with so many choices where the woman's face isn't visible? 🙄 2w
IndoorDame @Liz_M covers with paintings of women in variations of that pose was BY FAR the most common style I found. Not sure if it says something about the character herself or just the art style of the period 2w
BarbaraJean I‘d probably go for the Everyman‘s Library edition, but the drama of the covers in the lower two corners amuses me! 2w
IndoorDame @BarbaraJean when I thought about buying a physical copy that was totally the one I wanted! For digital I‘m torn. That orange dress is epic though!!! 2w

This is a free read with the KU program. This is a #chunkster and part of my #aliceinwonderlandretelling challenge. It‘s romance and high sea adventure and tarot. Literally something for everyone. #LittensLoveRomance
