I‘m a day late, but:
1. Paris by the Book- audio
2. Vintage 1954- ebook
3. 3 out of five, maybe 4 for Paris ( so far) ; just started Vintage
4. I like to highlight, underline, & write in the margins

Thank you for the tag @ Ddzmini

I loved this one. A lovely, witty book about books and ghosts and redemption lures you in, then shakes you up when the narrative gets knocked sideways by Covid and the murder of George Floyd. In the hands of another writer it would have felt unfocused, but Erdrich felt handles the disorienting feelings we all experienced in 2020 and brings those initial themes of books, ghosts, and redemption to a larger field.

Tamra It has such a distinctive tone! 👏🏾 4h

I enjoyed the originality of the plot and the gripping story about literature and family secrets buried in the past. Although not always happy with the main character, I really did enjoy the story that gives the reader some pleasant, entertaining reading hours.

In the hands of a less accomplished writer, I might have thought that the author tried to do too much but every bit of this worked for me. I too will haunt bookshops when I die but I will be nice about it. ☺️ Those who prefer not to confront present day realities in their reading may want to steer clear as Covid and George Floyd‘s murder figure prominently. I will be referring to the book lists frequently. 👍🏼

kbuggle I absolutely loved that this book also provided a whole other list of books to read.. 17h

Not terrible, but not a total winner for me. As much as I loved the Goodnight Moon connections, I could never suspend my disbelief enough to allow fictional Aunt Ruby to have created portions of the story instead of MWB herself. But June was a compelling character, and I was invested enough to finish! #womensfiction

jen_the_scribe I read his book “On Writing” and he talks about her quite a bit and how her support is everything. So sweet. 3d
MatchlessMarie @jen_the_scribe I loved that one. Was hysterical to listen to on audio too 😅 3d

This book continues the story of Evie from “The Jane Austen Book Club“ as she, newly armed with her degree from Cambridge, encounters the inevitable sexism in the workplace in 1950 London. I loved the bookstore setting and the imaginary glimpse into the lives of some of the famous people of the time (Beckett, Du Maurier, George Orwell's widow, etc.). This book felt like 'cozy' historical fiction and I enjoyed it. 3.75/5

This was…not good. Sooooo much “but he‘s innocent, I know he is” and not much else. A lot of the townspeople were unlikeable which would be fine if the rest of the book was good. As it was…ugh. #marvellousmay #readathon 3/8 done
