We‘re two weeks away from this month‘s #LiteraryCrew #BuddyRead discussion! I know some of us have found this to be not to be an easy read, and that‘s okay! Even if you‘re not quite into the book or had to put it down, feel free to join the discussion on the 30th.

Any thoughts to share so far?

mcctrish I‘m 65 pages in and after The Brothers Karamazov this is light 😆 but I am going slowly 6d
Librarybelle @mcctrish 😂 I love that comparison! 6d

BarbaraJean I‘ve found it slow going after the opening section—I just finished part 3 and feel like I‘m still waiting for the book to get going! I thought the back and forth of the timeline in part 2 was an interesting choice—it was a bit confusing. But I‘m finding Thomas a fascinating character! 5d
Librarybelle @BarbaraJean Thomas is a fascinating character - agreed! 5d
Mollyanna It took me a minute to get used to the writing style, but now that I am, I‘m enjoying it. 5d
PurpleyPumpkin I feel like reading the audiobook is helping. I‘m enjoying the writing but find this a bit of a heavy read. It‘s holding my interest though! 5d
Librarybelle @PurpleyPumpkin Yes - heavy reading indeed! Glad the audiobook is helping! 5d
Cuilin I think it has one of the best opening chapters ever. Brutal, but you can‘t stop reading. 5d
Jerdencon I‘m sort of trudging along with this one. About 1/2 way done and hoping to finish most of it before I go on vacation next week and the library takes my e book back! 5d
Librarybelle @Jerdencon Have fun on your vacation! 5d

Attempted to listen while cleaning my house and after a couple of chapters…do not remember a thing about what happened. Don‘t think this one is for me. Enjoy #literarycrew

AmyG Hahahaha. Same. I spaced out through the beginning and then bailed. 1w
Bookwormjillk I keep wanting to like this but I‘ve had the same experience. Like water through a sieve. 1w
Librarybelle Thanks for trying! 1w
CarolynM It‘s a great book, but it needs your full attention. 1w

Ended up really enjoying this one. It was a little slow to start, but the second half flew by. I also loved the ending. Read for #literarycrew. Will answer follow up questions a bit later

Librarybelle Hooray!! 3w
AmyG His daughter read this. One of my favorites of his. 3w
Sargar114 @AmyG oh I didn‘t know that. She did a great job! 2w

Librarybelle @IndoorDame Okay!! 😁 2w

This is a somewhat typical tale of an innocent puritan woman being accused of witchcaft while trying to get away from her husband but the ending really makes the book and Mary was a fantastic character 🤎
#LiteraryCrew @Librarybelle

Librarybelle So glad you liked it! 3w
Sargar114 I agree, the ending was great and didn‘t really see it coming. 3w

It‘s time for this month‘s discussion #LiteraryCrew ! I‘ve posted 7 questions as spoilers that can be found on my feed, the book‘s feed, or searching the hashtag. Answer whenever you would like!

I‘ve not quite finished this month‘s book, but I have to say I am greatly enjoying so far!

Crazeedi Jess I didn't even get to this one, 😮‍💨 I'll definitely be in for April since I read it before. And I received you lovely note yesterday!! I have many to write and I promise to get one sent soon!! I love Gregory too btw, haven't read her newest 3w
Librarybelle @Crazeedi Yay!! 😁❤️ 3w
BookwormAHN This was one of the few books I got to this month and I loved the ending 🤎 3w
PurpleyPumpkin I‘m still reading!😅 Really enjoying it, just haven‘t been able to get to it frequently. I‘ll be sure to check out your posts once I‘ve finished. 😉 3w

7. In what ways does Mary‘s story resonate today? ~adapted from Reading Guide #LiteraryCrew #BuddyRead

BookwormAHN So maybe women are being condemned as witches presently but stuck with abusive husbands, that is definitely still happening. 3w
Sargar114 Oh you mean the prevalent gaslighting and marginalization of women…the more things change the more they stay the same 3w

6. Was justice served at the end of the book? Did the characters get what they deserved? ~from Reading Guide #LiteraryCrew #BuddyRead

BookwormAHN I loved the ending. But Court wise no. 3w
Sargar114 Karmic justice for sure! 3w

5. As you were reading, who did you think buried the objects in the ground outside Mary‘s door? Were you surprised by the answer? ~from Reading Guide #LiteraryCrew #BuddyRead

BookwormAHN I wasn't sure. At first I thought it could have even been her husband. I thought he might have been trying to blackmail her with a witchcraft accusation. 3w
Sargar114 Yeah I was more and more thinking that it was Thomas and this was his get outta jail free plan if/when she tried to run out or accuse him of anything. 3w
