Read this if you LOVE puns, wordplay, translations, and precocious children! I think I am going to be thinking about this one for a long time. Chockfull of creative inventiveness and will appeal to a particular reader. I thought this impressively clever. If I was the judge for this round, Rooney would get my admiration but not advancement. #tob2022
(So tempted to write a review as if a judgement to advance this over BWWAY)

No book buying ban in my house! Bought these beauties today. Only In Concrete by Anne Garreta and the Baldwin were planned; for #Tob2022 and #BookSpinBingo respectively. Excited for Disreputable History for #ReadICT (been on my tbr forever!) the Pachett and the Quindlen because of auhor. The Rachel Long for my #PoetryEveryDay project. 😁💖📚💪🌻

Yeah, I liked it.❤️ But yea, there is something about Rooney‘s writing that is uncomfortable, or inspires cynical annoyance? Not really, but I tried to read this for why she seems to really provoke strong (negative) reactions. 😂 #tob2022 #IrishLit #relationships (also, VERY interesting to read this at the same time as The Mermaid Chair due to thoughts on Catholic religion.) And?! “She looked around at him.” Huh?

Ruthiella Soon after she looked at her phone and then locked it. Why all the PHONE LOCKING? And my phone locks itself after 30 seconds of non-usage. 1w

In my quest to read everything by Sue Monk Kidd, because I really enjoyed her thoughts about how she came to write The Book of Longings. I set this as #FirstBook2022. Mostly because I had just lifted it off the shelf to fit #WiaN for Mythical Being category. And #ReadICT! But this had problems. I enjoyed reading with a more critical eye rather than a hope-to-love it expectation. #DogsofLitsy #EstherAssisting #Griff #WHPG

Thank you to our host for the fun activity and my friend @La_Cori for inspiring the alteration of the image! I hope to listen to Matrix (for #TOB2022) and read print of the Baldwin (for #CC50). #BookSpinBingoJan2022

Does anyone have an opinion if Matrix could be considered “genre-blending”? I need to fit that category for the #ReadICT Challenge.

Hooked_on_books I‘d say Matrix blends historical fiction and feminist lit, so yes! 2w
BkClubCare @Hooked_on_books - OOooooo 😊 thank you 2w
Ruthiella I agree. For me it was a blend of historical fiction and fantasy...(the labyrinth, the female environment devoid even of male priests, her visions, etc.). 2w

A case of not the right book for my mood and time-sense. I think I would have loved it if not stressed/anxious. So, what I ended up doing is jumping over the middle and reading the last 40 or so pages. I don‘t feel like I missed anything. Is there a term for this? A bridge skip, perhaps? I am giving it a pick because it did make me think, I was intrigued by the italic word drop sequences, and I could relate to her relationship with her father.

Ruthiella The words in italics were interesting, I give you that. They added a certain flavor to the sentence. 2w

It‘s a tough book to review; probably because it is an Ozeki! I want to challenge myself to write a post as if I was the judge writing to defend why this book over another in TOB style; and that other book is one not in the upcoming tourney but was on the long list: Cloud Cuckoo Land. A few similar themes but wildly not, as well. First, tho, gotta pie 😉

Ann Patchett is such a favorite of mine! If she says, read this! ➡️ I am adding to my tbr. She is also inspiring me to read Eudora Welty.

Nutmegnc To my horror, I‘ve found I‘ve read nothing by this author. (Please don‘t take this as a personal failing 😱). I love her personal story and obviously the Pulitzer Prize committee (as well as millions of people everywhere) agrees with you about her talent. Which book should I start with? And when are we going on a field trip to Parnassus books?? 1mo

A lot to admire and appreciate — depth sadness and humor. A pick for sure and yet, conflicting. I think it is part of the point. Not meant to be academic or “impressive” but a recognition of how hard it is to human, flawed.

#BookerPrize For such a short book, this is dense and slow-going. The narrator was effective but also disorienting because Involved = All-knowing, and the reader is spoken to. We don‘t get enough of the hero, in my opinion and it is heart-breaking to pick favorite characters. The title promise is a diversion from the point of humans frittering away their potential. And I hate that phrase: “not living up to your potential” but there it is.
