Tagged was best of the week.

I read six books, three of my May #ReadYourKindle numbers, one of my #SeriesLove24 authors and May‘s #BookedinTime #BiblicalFiction choice. A good reading week for me.

CBee I started Prophet Song a couple of weeks ago but it didn‘t grab me. I should try again as I don‘t know if it was the right time to start it 🤷‍♀️ 1d

Deblovestoread @cbee. It took a bit for me to get into, partly because I didn‘t read the blurb so spent some time trying to figure out what year it was all taking place. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1d
CBee @Deblovestoread I read the description and it looks right up my alley so, maybe I‘ll try again at some point 🤷‍♀️ 1d

I‘ve been listening to this on Audible, I‘m completely invested in it. Julia was a great character already of course, but she‘s become so spellbinding in this. Just as Margaret Atwood has showed: us the life of women in totalitarian regimes is precarious at best. The imagination and detail is exemplary, highly recommended.

This book has shown me I like my dystopian fiction to have an element of the impossible to it. Prophet Song is dystopian fiction that feels just a few votes away from possible. Riveting and harrowing. 4.5 🌟

Grateful for the beautiful day to offset the despair created by the book.

sarahbarnes Agreed. 5d

This is the story of my life today. And at the moment, I am out of any to give.

TrishB Having one of those weeks too 😢 sorry for you! 6d
GingerAntics @TrishB actually, this is tying wonderfully with therapy. lol Today was definitely one of those days, though. 6d
vlwelser Why is this quote not on all of the things? Swearing is ok if it's Atwood, right? 6d
GingerAntics @vlwelser I 100% agree with that. I just wasn‘t sure Litsy would agree with that. 4d
vlwelser Atwood is one of my favorite people. She for sure gives zero fucks. 4d

Finished this one up on the way to visit my ma today and this series just keeps going downhill for me. I'm going to try the prequel novels but this one just didn't do it for me much.

Started Prophet Song this morning. Will finish Buried in a Bog tomorrow on my drive to Portland and back. I‘m 40% into Thorns and will likely bail and move onto Swans.

This book is powerful, scary, devastating but also compassionate and tender. So deserving of its Booker Prize winning status. The reviews were right, I doubt I will ever not be able to recall the details of this book no matter how long has passed.
Comparisons to handmaids tale and 1984 cannot be denied but this book is a masterpiece in its own right and deserves its own status as a literary classic.

Where to start ! - this book is grotesque, brutal , hideous but utterly compelling - I could not put it down ! A virus wipes out the animal population leading to an industry of cannibalism - and just when you think there is a flicker of goodness emerging ….
It‘s an Argentinian translation - short and very disturbing - not for the faint hearted - I think it will stay with me for a long time .

Cathythoughts Great review. I still remember it and that ending. Great book. As you say , not for the faint hearted 👍🏻❤️ 1w
emmasm08 @Cathythoughts so glad you‘ve read it Cathy if I need some post read counselling I‘ll come to you 😂- the end 🙈I don‘t think I‘ll ever forget it ! Xxx 1w

Okay, I'm not going to say that reading in this hammock swing is the MOST comfortable thing but I also won't say that it's not either. Been dealing with a lot and it's nice to have this comfy spot to tuck up and read

RedxoHearts I love reading in my hammock. I recently had to get a new one and went with a hammock chair instead. It's even more comfortable I think 2w
AmyG If I read in a hammock I‘d be asleep before I finished page 1. Hope life gets a bit easier for you. (edited) 2w
jessinikkip @AmyG I did pretty good at staying awake until I got the pillow behind my head. Then I was sound asleep for a bit 😂 2w
jessinikkip @RedxoHearts oooh that sounds comfy! 2w
