What an excellent read! The reader follows the Ganguli family from their roots in India to the United States. As the couple tries to form a new log for themselves and they begin a family, the narrative shifts to their son, Gogol. Full of everyday life, forming a portrait of what it is like to be an immigrant and first generation American. Gogol struggles with his identity and his ties to his heritage. Slow moving, but powerful. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

I have finished a book!! Though it did take me twice as long as normal🫤 Bk1 of #MarvellousMay #readathon is done. The authors latest novel, it was a standalone & set in the US instead of Ireland. Very diabolical, an unreliable MC & it turns out, unreliable characters everywhere. It‘s very twisty with grey motives abounding all over the place. A very nice read. And my #Bookspin for May #Booked2022 #MakeYourOwnPrompt #BookspinBingo #Pop22

Cinfhen Yay!!!! Glad you‘re getting your #ReadingMoJo back ❤️❤️ 18h

A book with two covers that balances out a human‘s needs for both relaxation and stimulation. A fun read!

This one was just ok. Good character development, great narrator, but middle of the road storyline. Nothing particularly new or different from other similar small town/village, retired cop helping an underdog solve a possible crime stories. Not bad just didn‘t really care about what happened. But it was my May #bookspin for #bookspinbingo so yay! 🌟🌟🌟

⭐️ ◼️ I couldn‘t find the actual book on here….This is only the third book in my entire life that I DNF‘d (Did Not Finish). I feel guilty and like a total failure. I tried to push through it and got about 70 percent done but I couldn‘t do it. It was total Deja vue (not spelled right) I felt like I read it already….or maybe I have just read to many Beauty and the Beast retellings. It‘s also my #March #bookspin #LitsyLove

TheAromaofBooks There is no shame in bailing on a book that isn't working for you!!! As @Cinfhen likes to say #AllHailtheBail 😂 There are SO many amazing books out there that you are going to love - sometimes you just have to let one of the not-amazing ones go!! 11h

So creepy. She was such a good writer. But her characters make my skin crawl a bit.

I know this might seem arbitrary and even silly to some, but I‘ve been intentionally chipping away at my TBR this year and, when I saw that my want to read books and read books are now even, I couldn‘t help but be proud of myself. I‘ve been much better about removing books, bailing on books, and reading from my TBR because life is too short to read bad books and to not get around to reading what you‘ve wanted to (in some cases, for decades)! 🥳

sarahbellum #roll100 and #bookspin were immensely helpful getting to this milestone. Thank you, @PuddleJumper and @TheAromaofBooks! 🤗 (edited) 1d
