The Lumberjack's Dove: A Poem | GennaRose Nethercott

This is easily one of the most unique books I have ever read….and unique in a good way! I think one way you could describe it would be that it is a bit of a mashup of narrative poetry, folklore, philosophical psychology, and “choose your own adventure book.” It left me reflecting on life, loss, change, and how we have come to be who we currently are. Would highly recommend!
Thanks @DinoMom for this #JolabokaflodSwap

DinoMom It intrigued me when I saw it on your TBR but now I think I need to read it. Glad you enjoyed it. (edited) 8mo
ReadingRachael @DinoMom I would definitely recommend it if it sounds like something you might like. It prompts personal reflection in such an unusual way. I don‘t do a lot of rereading, but this is one I know I‘ll come back and dip into again 8mo

Just over 200 pages in, and I am LOVING this book!! The #ToBshortlist is 🔥🔥 for me this year.

So far it isn‘t super magical realism-y @Cinfhen but I will reserve judgment until the end.

Cinfhen Oh good to know!! I was very anxious about this one because of the length & the magical realism aspect 9mo
ReadingEnvy I'm just hitting part 2! 9mo
squirrelbrain Glad you‘re enjoying it Meg! 9mo

jlhammar Yay! Great to hear. Just got this book. Loved A Tale for the Time Being so have high hopes! 9mo
Ruthiella Wonderful to hear that! I am hoping to go into this one not expecting to “get” everything but to just enjoy the ride! 9mo
Megabooks @Amiable great gift! I hope you enjoy it! 9mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ll keep you in the loop of course. It‘s much more reality grounded than say oyoyemi‘s or Kelly link‘s stuff. 👍🏻 9mo
Megabooks @ReadingEnvy 👍🏻👍🏻 9mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain same! You‘re right that it has a lot of parts, but I feel like I‘m listening to a pleasantly funky symphony. 9mo
Megabooks @AmyG I‘m definitely enjoying it! 9mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB probably tomorrow! I‘ll tag you. 👍🏻 9mo
Megabooks @Suet624 it was a pleasant surprise! 9mo
Megabooks @jlhammar I want to go back and read that now. 👍🏻👍🏻 9mo
Megabooks @Ruthiella kind of like I said to Helen, it‘s a funky symphony of a book. A lot of layers but definitely understandable. Just enjoying the ride is a great idea!! 9mo
Ruthiella @Megabooks Funky symphony sounds great! 👍 9mo

Another confession I have for you all is when I opened everything I was a bit drunk and can't remember who sent me what! I'll tag who I can remember (don't be made at me if I have missed anyone please let me know. I hope you all had a great Christmas.

12/28/86 - a day chosen at random and a book written about the events that happened on this ordinary day. My one addendum is it was selection of events that happened on this day, not a comprehensive view of the day. It was a mix of great writing, observation, and a little philosophy at the end. Turns out no day is ordinary. The stories will appeal most to fans of true crime. I couldn‘t put it down and it made me think a lot. #jolabokaflodswap

Thanks @MaleficentBookDragon for hosting a fun swap!!
