Does anyone else switch between books in the same reading session?

Blueberry Not in the same session but I do switch between audio and printed page in same session sometimes. (Haha, alliteration). 3d
Redwritinghood All the time. 3d
Panic70 All the time. And sometimes I accidentally end up reading one book while listening to another at the same time. 😂 3d
KathyWheeler Yes, especially if I‘m reading a book on a heavy topic and I find I need something lighter. 3d

I have a confession to make and I feel awful about it. I had to put The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah on the ‘I‘ll come back to you one day‘ pile. I got 8 chapters in & was really struggling to find any love or urge to keep reading. Anyone else felt like this reading this book?

KristenDuck This was a tough one for me. Had to really push myself to finish. 4d
TrishB Couldn‘t finish it! I bailed. 4d

It took me awhile to get into it, but now I don‘t want to put it down.

Buechersuechtling I know what you mean, I loved it soon after I began reading it. 4d

Leni is a teen when her family moves to a remote cabin in Alaska in the ‘70s. The descriptions of the wild state are incredible. You can feel the weight of the dark nights & long winters. The sense of hopelessness often feels overwhelming. The cycle of abuse that Leni & her mom are trapped in is exhausting. Elements of last 1/3 of the book felt a bit forced and unrealistic, but overall the story drew me in and it will stay with me for a long time.

This is more than just a story; it's a saga seeped with heartbreak, truths, adventure, love, hate, friendship, strength, and heroism. Hannah crafts a masterful narrative with characters that come alive off the page, most notably Alaska itself. We experience the beauty, the poignancy, and the brutality that comes with the changing of the seasons. We see how this land unites its residents as one, but also tears them apart.

Kaylamburson Without giving too much away, I appreciate how Hannah was able to bring us a happy ending, but not in the way anyone would imagine. It is still surrounded by grief, regret, and uncertainty, but there's still so much happiness found in the simplicities of life in the Bush. 2w
