Caraval | Stephanie Garber

I caved....I bought Caraval, hoping it's as good as the hype says!

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image

I confess that I cannot understand the #hype. Yes, her story is harsh & her progess admirable, but the way she told it was just too shallow for me. She keeps forgetting her siblings, the families miraculous luck with terrible injuries confuse me, as does her keeping focus on her academic career and completely skipping over other aspects of life... I'm sure writing this book must have been therapeutic, but ripe for publication it seems not 🤷🏻‍♀️

Tamra You hit the nail on the head and is part of the reason I‘m not typically a memoir reader - this read like therapy. Like many, an essay/article would have sufficed. 9mo
Heideschrampf @Tamra i'm glad i'm not the only one - Though I usually enjoy female emancipation autobiographies. But that also means that I know there's far better ones out there 😕 9mo

Ondaatje's Warlight is everywhere these days! #hype #manbooker2018 #mbp2018 #finestfiction #indiebuddyreads

Redheadrambles That‘s a nice photo of him - for a moment I thought he was in the shop there larger than life signing books 1y
MeikeReads @Redheadrambles Oh, that would have been fun!! :-) And I agree, I also think that's a very nice book poster! 1y

It was okay. Great premise, and themes connecting to race in the US. I don't want to get spoilery, but I had some frustrations with a couple characters / plot points and it could've been shorter. The movie will probably be pretty good though.

IheartYA It was too long! 2y
ReviewsMayVary I‘m looking forward to it. But honesty, and this is admittedly petty, I‘m tired of magical eye colors! Like, brown eyes matter!! 2y

ItsAngel @Cinfhen I am with you on Maas...never even picked one up because I don‘t even know why? 😆 2y

Bookworm-Bobbie I've read all of these and enjoyed them (apart from twilight which is so badly written) but I get it, sometimes the more people go on about something, the less likely I am to read it. And then when I do, I really enjoy them #bookwormlogic 2y
merelybookish Haven't read any of these either. 🤷 2y
haileybean I‘ve never read outlander either 🙊 I have it, and I‘ve started it but I‘ve never gotten further then maybe 50-60 pages 2y
sherryvdh Same here (aside from Twilight because my sister wanted me to read them with her). 2y
MarriedtoMrT Ha! #pagecountphobia I have that, too! 2y
Mdargusch Same here! 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage We would never kick you off Litsy! 😘 2y
Reviewsbylola Skip Twilight for sure. I read the first two Outlanders and I can see the appeal but I had no desire to continue. 2y
JaclynW I've read the first Outlander and Harry Potter, but none the others. I tried a few pages of Twilight but couldn't do it. 2y

One of Us Is Lying | Karen M. Mcmanus
post image

I'm a little behind in my own challenge! This is my pick for #AwesomeAutumnBooks - #Liars & #TroubledRelationship - #OneofUsIsLying by #KarenMcManus. It has been described as #PrettyLittleLiars meets #TheBreakfastClub 😍It is on my #TBR and I'm hoping it will live up to all of the #hype. Has anyone read this yet? If so, what did you think about it? #YA #YoungAdult #Mystery #fiction #ToBeReadNext

britt_brooke In my TBR, too! It was a recommendation from @Cinfhen. 👍🏻 2y
MinDea I just bought this a couple weeks ago. I hope it is good! 2y
Cinfhen Oh no...#pressure @britt_brooke @Jess7 😱as a member of #NoYA OOUIL was a really fun, campy throwback to my HS days kind of read! It just worked...good mixture of mystery & snark 💕hope you all enjoy it @MinDea 2y

Lizpixie I loved this book! I was gifted it in the #summersolstice exchange and I read it in a day. Totally get the breakfast club/pretty little liars reference. 2y
blondie It's my favorite book I've read this month and possibly even this year :) 2y
