Day 9. Books that take place on an island.
#bookreadhappyhour

☀️i still think about this debut novel from last summer...despite it being in one of my favorite locations, JA 🇯🇲, a sunny locale does not make for a bright setting. 💔Anyone else enjoy this as much as I did? I CAN NOT WAIT until the release of her next novel.

Smrloomis Be interested to hear what you think about Sag Harbor. I read it years ago. 1y
BookswithB @Smrloomis I have yet to finish it 🙈. Hopefully next month, fingers crossed. 1y
Smrloomis @BookswithB I read it first but I liked Zone One and The Underground Railroad both much more. 1y

BookswithB @Smrloomis I hadn‘t heard if Zone One, but did read The Underground Railroad and was odd man out on that one. I didn‘t care for it. (edited) 1y
Smrloomis @BookswithB hmmm, Zone one is a zombie novel so that might put some people off it. 1y
BookswithB @Smrloomis oooh, I‘m onto zombies, if the story is don well. 1y
Smrloomis @BookswithB I LOVED it but I don‘t usually like zombie stuff so who knows 🤷🏻‍♀️ maybe you‘ll like it, maybe you won‘t! 1y

Can‘t believe I‘ve just gotten ‘round to this, been wanting to read it forever. It was a fun one!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Loving it so far as well. 👍 2y
BookswithB @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego it was so good! I still need to see the movie. What are your final thoughts? 2y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @BookswithB I quite enjoyed the book actually. The movie was obviously not as Good, but still entertaining. 2y
BookswithB Ok, I‘ll still keep the movie on my list 😉 2y

First Toni Morrison I‘ve read that I didn‘t care for.
oh well.

Zelma I bailed on this one years ago and never made my way back to it. I just couldn‘t connect to it and I‘m glad my instinct was right. 2y
Chelleo I‘m not a huge fan but did enjoy The Bluest Eye and Song of Solomon. #blacklitsy 2y
BookswithB @Zelma good on you for not wasting your time with a book that wasn‘t doing it for you!!! I need to get onboard with dnf‘ing! 🤦🏾‍♀️ 2y

BookswithB @Chelleo Girl! The Bluest Eye! I also enjoyed Beloved very much, but this one here...nope. 2y
Zelma @BookswithB thanks! I loved Beloved so it wasn‘t a matter of not giving the author enough of a chance. 2y

Day 30. #wrapup

Three months into the new year...Wasn‘t my best reading month, but definitely my most productive. On point with refreshing my French, bullet journaling, my skin care routine, upped my gym game (until I got sick), started blogging again, been getting my gallon of water in almost daily, and started catching up on book reviews...now to step it up and keep going. 🤞🏾✨

Still struggling with this one 🤦🏾‍♀️
#nationalfragranceday

Notafraidofwords I struggle through this one too and I usually love Toni Morrison but this one felt like the plot was somehow missing for me. I‘m glad I read it though because they‘re really insightful parts in it but it‘s not my favorite of hers. 2y
BookswithB @Notafraidofwords ok, that‘s comforting, because I usually enjoy her work as well and I‘ve been trying to read this since last month. I thought I was in a slump until I flew through and arc I just received. I‘m still planning on finishing, but your comment helps me not too feel so bad about myself. Thanks! 2y
Notafraidofwords @BookswithB oh no. Don‘t feel bad. What I ended up doing was reading about 20 pages a day until I finished. I divided it with post it‘s. 2y
BookswithB @Notafraidofwords sorry for the slow reply. That‘s pretty much what I did, just with more daily pages because I wanted to hurry and finish it. 🙈 2y

FINALLY finished my ARC last month. Painful. Can‘t believe the same guy that wrote one of my favorite books also wrote this. 🤦🏾‍♀️ I still need to write a review.

Reviewsbylola It definitely wasn‘t well written. It kept my attention though. 2y
Katehubb Totally agree. I was disappointed. The Martian was so amazing. And I loved Mark Watney. While the m.c and the plot didn‘t grab me, I did think the setting was pretty cool. 2y
BookswithB @Reviewsbylola Right. I wish I could say it kept mine, totally out me in a reading slump. 😢 2y
See All 6 Comments
BookswithB @Katehubb yes! The setting was cool for sure. 2y
Vinjii Yup, didn‘t like this one at all :( Basically a female teenage Mark Watney and the science was boring because it wasn‘t essential to the plot like in The Martian. Those were my main complaints. 2y
BookswithB @Vinjii totally! A young angst-y M. Watney (but not as thorough, lame force female voice). The science was boring. I agree with you. 2y

Reviewsbylola I‘ve always been curious about this one. 2y
BookswithB @Reviewsbylola it‘s good, I was pleasantly surprised. Have you seen the movie? The book is just as good. 2y
Reviewsbylola I think I saw the movie years and years ago. 2y
BookswithB @Reviewsbylola it‘s so good!! I haven‘t seen it in forever, will prob watch soon, as we‘re going river camping later this month and are knocking out all the old fave (we‘re corny like that, lol). We watched A River Runs Through It last weekend, still so good. 2y
