I‘ve only read 6, although I‘ve got 4 or 5 on my TBR. I‘m not that bothered about it though…is that a bad thing? Meh.

3.5/4⭐️

Beautiful writing. Heartbreaking ending. Unnecessary epilogue.

Amor4Libros I‘ve always been curious about this one! Glad to see your review. 1mo
Sace @Amor4Libros I would recommend it. It‘s slow but in a good, reflective way. Very much a character driven book. 1mo
Amor4Libros @Sace Adding it to TBR 🤗 1mo
Ruthiella So many readers dislike the epilogue! 😅 1mo
Sace @Ruthiella it was so unnecessary and didn‘t seem to fit with the rest of the book. 1mo

I am enjoying the tagged book but I have been distracted lately 😂. I think I will have to read this one again when it doesn‘t feel like required reading. #catsoflitsy

BkClubCare I want to reread this someday - it‘s been a decade (or two?!) since I read it. 1mo
Sace @BkClubCare I feel bad for not giving it the attention it deserves because it‘s really lovely. Or as lovely as a book can be about hostages. (edited) 1mo

Sace @TheLudicReader I am enjoying it yet at the same time I don‘t think I‘m giving it the attention it requires/deserves. 1mo

I‘m hoping to make some progress on this one today.

(Should I be embarrassed that I haven‘t read this author yet?)

Libby1 No! Don‘t be embarrassed! I haven‘t read her yet, either. 😃 1mo
Sace @Libby1 I‘m liking her so far! 1mo
AvidReader25 Love this author, and this one is one of my favorites. She doesn‘t write fast, moving novels, but fascinating character studies. Enjoy! 1mo

‘Bel Canto‘ is loosely based on a true story when, in 1996, a group of young terrorists took over the Japanese embassy in Peru. I loved the way Patchett wrote these characters with complexity and nuance — hostages and terrorists alike. There is a surprising amount of tenderness, beauty and love within the tension and tragedy. However, this was a light pick for me because I found much of it too slow.

A House in the Sky: A Memoir | Amanda Lindhout, Sara Corbett

4.5/5 ⭐️ As disturbing this book was, I really enjoyed it. I think why I liked it is the brutal honesty that Amanda described her captivity.

One thing I would have liked to have a bit more information on is about her life post captivity, but that was really the only downside to the book. #2024 #bookreview #nonfiction #canadian #bookclub #truestory
