KadaGul @Read4life I have a copy of Dry. Im looking 👀 forward to reading it. February's Lauren Groff was not a genre I would read but i gave a chance now

#AuthorAMonth @Soubhiville

Such varying views on this one. It's the story of a striving-to-be utopian commune in western NY in the 60s, where our protagonist, Bit, takes us through his childhood to adulthood-- to a futuristic, dystopian pandemic in the city. My first book by Groff, the writing is lush and poetic, sometimes overwhelmingly so. However, that didn't stop me from caring about Bit and his journey towards peace. I'll read Groff again.

Another good month for my challenges and buddy reads. I didn‘t finish two of my rolled #Roll100 books but The Goldfinch is one of my March #ReadOrDonate books. At 800+ pages I‘ve started it now.

I liked it. Reminded me a little of Jack London. Beautiful nature writing and does not shy away from the brutality of the world. Read for #authoramonth and #naturalitsy

My 2nd Groff for #authoramonth #aam This was an interesting read, all from the perspective of an escaped servant from colonial times as she is fleeing abuse and disease and struggles to survive the wilderness, injury, and being hunted. This is an adventure story that reads like a fable, a mystery and a tragedy all in one. It‘s hard to read, this is dark and depressing but the prose is quite lovely so that made it a pick for me. @Soubhiville

Soubhiville I loved this one, even though it is sad. 22h
KadaGul @Julsmarshall I had a hard time reading this, so it ended up being DNF. It was along the lines of Fable w/ primitive undertone. What bothered me was when the author ✍️ states choking on a whore or person, not sure exactly. I moved past that but couldn't shake off the imagery or feeling, so I gave up. I am grateful to @Soubhiville for introducing Lauren Groff and organizing #AuthorAMonth 21h

It helped to read no more than one story a day and while the writing was good I‘m sitting here wondering what was the point. #AuthorAMonth #52Bookclub24 #personalphobia #snakes

Librarybelle I‘ve seen mixed reviews for this one. I have a copy but have yet to read it. 2d
BarbaraBB I recognize that feeling! 2d

Overall, it's a good read, though there's no strong plot. You follow Marie as she morphs from unwanted orphan to powerful abbess. I wish we had more of her life as a crusader.

I‘ve given Lauren Groff a the old college try. In the past I‘ve tried three times to read Fates and Furies and bailed every time. I thought I‘d try her again for #authoramonth. I tried both of these, but neither grabbed me. She is just not my cup of tea. Too many books to read to struggle through on those that aren‘t enjoyable. #Hailthebail

Tamra I don‘t think she‘s for me either. 2d
RebelReader @Tamra I‘m glad I‘m not alone. I wanted to like her, but we just don‘t have chemistry. 😂 2d
TheBookHippie @Tamra I bailed on everything I tried. @RebelReader 🤷🏻‍♀️ she‘s not for me. 2d
Soubhiville Totally understandable. Hope the next author is better for you! 2d
RebelReader @Soubhiville March will be better. I love Jane Harper! 2d
