When you're avoiding political social media but your book goes there too. 🙄

#bookishresolutions I've decided today to do away w all TBR lists. Books come to me when I need a new one to read. I never return to these lists and they're just there getting longer. In fact, this book is on my TBR list. My former TBR list. :)

Amazing read. Like a 007 movie with a kick-ass woman in the title role and without all the boring parts! Will be ordering Vols. 2 and 3 from the library. And re-reading this tomorrow!

BookBabe I can just imagine how the conversation would go: "So what are you working on these days?" "Well, in my new role, I'm a tape dispenser." ??? 3y

I don't know. I read the whole thing so there's that. And I liked all the people in the story. It's a nice story. I wouldn't read it again. Also all the characters have really plain names and I felt that that made it difficult to tell them apart until I got well into the story. Did anyone else experience that?

On the Move: A Life | Oliver Sacks

Listened to this on audiobook. Didn't care for it but listened to the whole thing. I wonder if it had to do w the narrator. It's a pretty dry recounting of his life but sticks more to the medical parts. When he would discuss his life and relationships it was much better. That's probably me. I'm not a math/science head at all so prefer the touchy feelyness.

Really enjoyed this. Clear that politics haven't changed much since I was a kid. Sad and comforting somehow.

Golly this was unexpected and good. Picked up at Wild Rumpus on a whim and well-rewarded. Great female characters. Weird in a good way. Magical realism all over the place.

MrBook I like the title and cover. 3y
monalyisha I really appreciated the inclusion of Ava & Cardigan‘s friendship! 💞 2y

I'm a native Minnesotan, where most of this book is set, and felt like I knew many of the characters. The story jumps around quite a bit to introduce new characters but when it ends, it does so in an astonishing, heartfelt and wonderful way. READ THIS BOOK!

Super predictable but I kept reading for some reason. Must be something there. Also provoked a great book group discussion about assisted suicide.
