Gaudy Night | Dorothy L. Sayers
post image

Lukewarm pick. Interesting plot but far too much banter, bickering, ruminating, etc. Anyway, it knocks off prompts for a couple reading challenges.

#Booked2019 #nightoriented not just because of the title but also because much of the mischief occurs at night.

#MMD for a book published before I was born. It was probably quite modern at the time...

Cinfhen I love a #DoubleDip 🍦🍦 2mo
shanaqui I think Gaudy Night might work significantly better if you've actually read the series leading up to it, or at least Strong Poison and Have His Carcase. It's really not typical of the series in many ways, but relies heavily on the investment in the characters for the emotional part of the plot. 2mo
Susanita @shanaqui I was thinking that too as I got further into the book. 2mo
shanaqui @Susanita For fans of the series it's the most awesome payoff, but why should you care if you don't know the background, after all! 2mo

What to say about Evvie Drake? I kept thinking while reading this how human Evvie is - she‘s flawed and complicated, and there were times I could totally relate to her. The middle of this book is the slowest part. I liked this one. My #Newin2019 for #Booked2019 and my #Newin20192020 for #GrowUp #BBRC .

Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders
post image

This was a really weird yet engrossing book. Part is historical accounts of Lincoln and the other is a historical fiction ghost story.
I don't think this could be more #genrebusting

I‘m not the intended audience for this one but it managed to fulfill both the #DiverseMiddleGrade prompt for #Booked2019 AND #Malawi for the #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge- plus it was available through #KindleUnlimited! I liked the details of daily life in Malawi, there wasn‘t enough there to overcome the more problematic parts of the plot. I expected the heavy-handed Sunday school lessons, but everything with the father made me uncomfortable

Cinfhen Sorry it wasn‘t a total pick but at least you got a #doubledip 2mo
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen indeed!! 😁 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job, even if was just so-so. ♥️📚👊🏻 2mo

The Greatest Gift: A Christmas Tale | Philip Van Doren Stern
post image

The tagged book is a short story published in 1943 that was the basis of the film It‘s A #WonderfulLife. George Pratt is dissatisfied with life, to the point where he feels it would have been better if he had never been born. He has a few #Surprises when he is shown what would have happened if that had been the case

A #twofer post to get me caught up.
There is a #BizarreLoveTriangle in this book when widowed mommy blogger Stephanie makes a new friend Emily & then falls for Emily‘s husband Sean after she goes missing. (There‘s also another crazy ick-ish triangle from Stephanie‘s past too.) All three characters do things in this book that are more than #GroundsForDivorce 🖤 I liked the movie much more than the book due to the casting/acting.

arlenefinnigan Loving the double link. Excellent work. 3mo
Cinfhen 🍦🍦that‘s what I call the #DoubleDip 😊well played 3mo

Ah some of these women were so unlikeable! It made me not want to pick up the book sometimes. I liked the second half of the book better than the first. I found Young Ursele and Irene so awful. Veronica was my favorite. I also didn‘t expect the final years to be set during WWII. That was interesting.

#Booked2019 - gifted to you (got in #witchplease Swap last year)
#readingwomenchallenge - multigenerational story

Cinfhen Two prompts one book that‘s good #DoubleDip 🍦🍦 3mo
