I read this book very quickly! It‘s a quick read but it‘s not fluffy at all. The best part is all the characters. They are all flawed but all understandable in their own ways. I feel like so many other authors wouldn‘t be able to write seven main characters and give them all depth, but Emma Straub did an amazing job with that. I‘d recommend!

Never knew how tense I was until I hit the beach last week and how long that I had been feeling like that. While I will miss the beach and the sun and the warmth and the breezes, I‘m starting to want to get back home. Now back to my book and my drink (Long Island Iced Tea) #beachlife #vacation

Loving the sunshine ☀️ and the warm weather and the breezes off the water. Sad to think that my parents and I will be leaving in a few days… #beachresort #vacation

I wouldn‘t say that these solutions are accessible to most of us, but I enjoyed the design eye-candy. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#vacation-at-home-design-ideas-for-cr...

JoyBlue @Susanita 😎 I don't watch, so I was unfamiliar with him. But, I saw this book in a new-to-me indie bookstore over the July 4 holiday weekend, and it reached out and tweaked my nose! 2mo

Typical Ferante style, but not as good as her Neapolitan Quartet.

Tender Is the Flesh | Agustina Bazterrica

For some reason I thought that Tender is the Flesh would be the perfect read for our boat tour along the Western Coast of Corfú. This book is horrifying and disturbing, and yet it felt so real. Considering the events of the last two years, the plot doesn‘t seem crazy at all, but rather very realistic…

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

JillR I just finished this book and totally agree. Whilst it‘s portrayed as a dystopian future, this really didn‘t feel beyond the realms of possibility to me at all. Disturbing but v clever… 1mo
thewallflower0707 @JillR yup, I can totally imagine that around 50% of our world population would rather eat humans than give up on meat… 1mo

If you love character driven novels, you will like this one. I love books with lots of characters and perspectives, it draws me into the story and I don‘t get bored. But not for you if lots of characters in a scene is confusing or uninteresting for you.
