I truly had the best time recording this week‘s episode of my book podcast: a conversation with author Iman Hariri-Kia (A HUNDRED OTHER GIRLS), in which she makes her case for The Clique as empowering social commentary. Technically, we‘re covering book three, but our chat extends to the whole series and touches on matters of pop culture, insecurity, mean girls, class, and more. 💋 link to listen in my bio!

Okay this is really light but I enjoyed it so much and flew through it.. exactly what I needed. Would love to read something in the same vein; if you‘ve read this and have any comparison recommendations, send them my way!

Very entertaining. Shallow, but fun, and not poorly written.

3 ⭐️ - Light pick. This was a short, fast read and, overall fun, so I‘m more willing to look past some of its faults.

I don‘t really follow celebrity gossip (I still see it, but don‘t seek it out on purpose), but I was curious about this debut book by the anonymous Instagram figure deuxmoi.

I wasn‘t expecting some impressive biting satire, but I was a bit underwhelmed by a fairly straightforward workplace novel with minor romance elements.

Kimberlone I think I probably would have appreciated a tell all (even if still anonymous) memoir from deuxmoi rather than this pretty average novel. 2mo

Chapter 10: today we start the chapters about Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield, who had a crazy #lovehate relationship. Lots of jealousy and backstabbing, while simultaneously working together! #chasteandunchaste #gossip #stolenideas #backstabbing #notstraighteningeachotherscrown #skipthepassive #totallyaggressive #pemberlittens

Daisey I caught up this morning and found the chapters about George Eliot & Harriet Beecher Stowe incredibly interesting. 5mo

AllDebooks All caught up, this does seem to be quite an unstable, toxic relationship. Such rivalry 5mo
BarkingMadRead @TheBookHippie yesssss @Daisey me too, it was my first time reading about either of tnem! @AllDebooks so so toxic!! 5mo
suvata Virginia Woolf kind of scares me. I‘m not sure I would want to be her friend. But I would read her books. 5mo
batsy @TheBookHippie Yes, that's what I thought! This chapter feels counter to "secret sisterhood" lol. 5mo
TheBookHippie @batsy Welllll, usually as women we have ONE friendship like that but usually in middle school. OY VEY. 5mo
batsy @TheBookHippie Haha! No doubt literary friendships were rife with frenemies; fellow writers as sources of support but also as competition. Spicy! 5mo
kspenmoll @batsy Perfect statement for this section: their relationship as counter to sisterhood. 5mo

The Rumor: A Novel | Lesley Kara

The MC overhears some gossip at her son‘s school and repeats it, setting in motion a sequence of events. TBH I thought the plot was preposterous. For one, without giving anything away, the MC moves back to the town where she lived as a teenager and seems to know no one who lives there. Also, not to be indelicate, but too many mentions of excrement that seemed gratuitous. Again, you can find tons of books that are better

#Gossip is one of the most popular #hobbies in Jane Austen‘s books, sometimes engaged in over #embroidery. Whether it‘s who has moved from #city to #country, the cost of #conveyances and #houses, or whose #children are #dancing with whom at #balls, many a #friendship includes making sport of one‘s neighbours.

When Thomas Moore stayed in London for the first time in April 1799, he wrote to his mother: ‘… if I had indulged in going out often… there is scarce a night that I should not be at some female #gossip party, to drink tea, play a little crambo [a rhyming game], and eat a sandwich.‘
