I love Stacey Abrams (her politics, her in general), I do not love political thrillers, but this was really a rollercoaster of a read with a plucky MC, relatable supporting cast & villains that have dimension (mostly). The clues weren‘t set up in a way that someone who doesn‘t know about chess or DC geography could figure out, &in the middle there started to me a plethora of new faces &info that got unwieldy. But all in all it was very good

Is there a Library Service division of the Deep State? I don't know how else to account for this being their book of the month.
I gave it the 50-pages test. Can't. Won't. Nope!
I wasn't thrilled: I was bored.
Maybe pick this up if you fancy an easy game of bad-writing bingo.

quietlycuriouskate @dabbe I find it SO hard to bail on a book: not this time, though! 4mo

I really didn't want to go to book group today (feel more like hiding in my room and not talking to anyone for the rest of the year). But... my books were due back and library fines make me feel like a criminal. 🤣 So, off I went, like a dutiful citizen.
Tagged is next month's book. The Raynor Winn just leapt into my arms.

Bookwomble I hope book club was bearable in the end, Kate 💖 4mo
quietlycuriouskate @Bookwomble Actually I'm glad I went. They are pleasant people and none of us much liked the book so we did some good old-fashioned British bonding over our disgruntlement. 🤣 4mo
Reggie Yay, I‘m glad you showed up and it worked out. 4mo
TrishB Glad it was better than anticipated! 4mo

There‘s something about fictional political/legal thrillers by authors whose day jobs deal in political/legal reality that I just can‘t quit. Some are written like a car chase and others a chess match. This was the latter, and even though a few of the moves (genetic bioengineering) were complicated, I liked Stacy‘s players and the game. …And just before this post I realized book 2 in the series is available.

BookmarkTavern Great review! And great photo! 💙 4mo

State of Terror: A Novel | Louise Penny, Hillary Rodham Clinton, To Be To Be Confirmed Simon & Schuster

Now for something completely different. I won‘t lie, I love the occasional cheesy political thriller. I once watched a whole season of 24 in a weekend, and I want that vibe in my thriller reading please. This mostly didn‘t disappoint; a page-turningly tense story with current terrorist and world issues themes and the like. I‘ve never read Louise Penny and can‘t say I loved the writing enough to read more, but overall all this was good fun (👇)

JillR In saying it was good fun, I took it as such but fully accept some very real life issues are being played out here. 11mo

Rogue Justice: A Novel | Stacey Abrams

Reading second of Stacy Abrams books staring Supreme Court clerk Avery Keene, and enjoying it. Loved "When Justice Sleeps" so jumped right in on this one, also our bookclub choice for August selected by our friend and bookclub member Vicki.

Another exciting Avery Keene thriller. Keep them coming Stacey!!
