West: A Novel | Carys Davies
post image

A low pick for me, maybe too high expectations - I expected to love it; it was just good 🤷🏻‍♀️

Widower Cy Bellman heads into the American West, searching for living dinosaurs. His lonely young daughter is left behind in the care of her aunt. Despite the wide open spaces and big themes, this is a subtle novella, albeit with a surprising end. It would make for a great book club discussion.

Did I love it? No. It might just stay with me though.

rockpools I‘m going to use this for #booked2022 #involvesanexploration, although you do feel that Bess could learn more exploring the world from home (given the chance) than Cy did on his journeys. @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @alisiakae 11h
Cinfhen Cool choice!! I read this one and I thought it was really thought provoking!! And I appreciated how the author conveyed so much in under 150 pages!!! 10h
rockpools @Cinfhen It is extremely well-done! It just didn‘t connect with me quite as much as I‘d hoped it would, for some reason. 10h

The Devil Makes Three | Tori Bovalino
post image

I loved Bovalino‘s take on the “demon in the book” trope, and the freshness she brought to it! The relationship between Tess and Truth is a bit like the diet version of Addie LaRue‘s affair with her demon, and could have been explored better. That said, though, this book treats the themes of need and longing intelligently and is probably more about those than just the plot itself.

I received the most wonderful gift today… a friend of the family made me this quilt, with fabric from my mom‘s clothes and other sewing projects my mom had made over the years. There are so many sweet memories of my mom in these fabrics. 💜💔

And I had no idea she would make it in a bookshelf pattern!! I love it so much.

My Own Lightning | Lauren Wolk

While the first week back at school was only four days, it was still exhausting. Can I spend my weekend reading? #currentlyreading I loved Wolf Hollow so to be back with Annabelle is a treat. Plant is a gift from grateful students. They‘re quite lovely to be aware of the work we do for them.

Read for book club and discussed yesterday. I was wishy washy on this, though it‘s incredibly readable and charming at times. After the book club discussion I came away with a deeper appreciation of this title and what the author attempted to do through this adult fairy tale. Humans assign meaning to the world which is mostly just out there doing it‘s own thing. Love and grief change how we humans see our world.

marleed Oh this is one of 28 nominations for 2023 reading with my IRL bookclub. We find out the 11 winners next month. 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @marleed I would have never enjoyed this on my own, but reading it and discussing it with others really enhanced my experience. It brought out many good topics for our group, maybe it will for yours too if it‘s chosen! 2mo
