The Nest: A Novel | Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
post image

This one is well written & so clever & it‘s making me smile away to myself ... afternoon off & with this one it‘s perfect.... loving it 👍🏻❤️ I started it briefly a while back ( it was put into #hibernation ) ... more proof that the timing has to be right ! Someone could do their thesis on this “ timing “ concept

Ruthiella Totally agree! For some books one has to read them at the right moment.😀 now
Cathythoughts @Ruthiella Yes! The right place , the right time ..... 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ now

What a lovely evening, celebrating Kiley Reid‘s Such A Fun Age. She was an engaging author with a lot of sharp insights on the themes and characters of the book. As I said in my last week‘s wrap up, it‘s going to be a smash hit.

Cathythoughts I just finished it this week .... a smash hit for sure 👍🏻❤️ I absolutely loved it 8h

The first half of this book really gripped my attention but it felt less composed and plausible in the second half. At times it felt like every character was vying to be the most "well-intentioned but still racist" and many characters were portrayed stereotypically. I certainly think there is a lot to unpack in the story but found there to be a lot of convenient coincidences that weakened the plot. Overall, this was ⭐⭐⭐ 1/2 out of 5, for me.

Cathythoughts I thought the first half was different & this turned out to be a completely different book than the one I started..... but I loved it all 8h

woah!! this book surprised me in so many ways! the plot shocked me with many plot twists and moments that made the story super interesting and enjoyable. the characters were very detailed and made A Snicker of Magic even better. i‘m not usually a fantasy book person but this was the perfect mix. a must read!!

My husband is secret reader at my sons school tomorrow and this is one of the books he picked to read... I had never read it before but literally laughed out loud reading it. It was so funny!!

TheBookAddict That‘s cool, sounds like a fun story. So do they have parents volunteer to read to the kids? 16h
Jerdencon @TheBookAddict yes... parents volunteer to read to the class. 16h

It seems I‘m in the minority, but I just didn‘t care for this book. I thought it was an interesting premise but it lacked substance. Some of the side story lines seemed unnecessary and petty.

One of those books that you can't put down. Time just flew by while I was reading it. Being a nanny myself for a number of years, I was able to relate very well to their relationship. While the book was fun, there's also some important conversation on race relations here that are extremely relevant to our current times. I see why Reese Witherspoon picked this for her Hello Sunshine book club. I recommend it to everyone, but women in particular.
