The Magician | Colm Toibin

This book has made me want to read every Mann book that has been translated to English.

Beyond knowing that Mann was a German writer with a selection of books on the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die list I knew nothing about him, this book has changed that.

Full review here https://thereadersroom.org/2021/12/08/the-magician-by-colm-toibin/

AmyG I am halfway through this book and YES....I want to read his books now, too. I won this on Instagram amd I also knew nothing of his work...just k ew of him. So far this is a wonderful book. 21h
Simona I really, really liked this book❣️ 20h
Liz_M I read the tagged book during pre-vaccine pandemic and was enthralled. And also desperate to experience a quarantine/convalescence that included gorgeous scenery, socializing, lavish and frequent meals, and advanced lounge chairs. 😂 😂 😂 16h

This is beautiful and short and all kinds of lovely. So this author's writing style is very unique. I loved The Buddha in the Attic. This is about a mother who is experiencing dementia and her daughter is one of the narrators.

4/5

This book was fascinating. It chronicles the journey from the time when women were warned not exercise at all lest their uterus fall out to the boutique fitness classes of today. The book primarily focuses on American women. It was very interesting to see how the culture of a specific tied in with exercise culture.

Expected publication day for this supposed mystery/thriller is December 7. I didn‘t find it mysterious or thrilling. I‘ll give it creepy (in an icky—not scary—way). Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#the-hawthorne-school

So excited I was approved for this ARC by #netgalley!

I‘ve loved every book I‘ve read by this author, and so far this one is just as good.

(These are just some pretty flowers I found in the cemetery, this is not my family plot.)

Mickey7: A Novel | Edward Ashton

Mickey is an expendable. Meaning, he's kind of immortal. Also, he's the one who has to do the dangerous jobs in the beachhead colony.

When the 7th instalment doesn't die, but an 8th version has already been generated; colonists die; the local fauna starts being really aggressive;...

Half way through the #ARC and really enjoying it.

This was a really interesting though at times hard read. It deals with a very sensitive subject and is one sided account but it reads very honestly. It was hard at times not to wonder how did no one step in or how could so many believe the lies but of course this happens more than we realise. Its a fairly dark story though at times it lacks a little depth. #Netgalley 4* 16pts for #WinterGames2021 #MistletoeManiacs @Clwojick
