Why am I tearing up a bit at the end of a book people said was about gaming?
Because at the heart this book is about friendship and loss, grief and love. It is incredibly well written, and the characters are drawn believable and flawed, but likable.
4 stars because I felt it dragged just a bit about 3/4 in. Which was a fine creative choice given the storyline but did slow me down.

This volume is much more serious than earlier volumes, focused on Charlie's mental health. It is well thought out and tackles anorexia and depression well.
I still love seeing Charlie and Nick together and evolving.

Big stretch #weeklyforecast hoping to keep up my COVID reading momentum even though I am feeling better and testing negative, have to go back to work but want to finish the month strong! The Sparrow has taken me so long I had to return the library copy and buy my own. It is good, just slow going, balancing with a quick Heartstopper read and the engrossing Tomorrow (etc.) Grabbing Evicted on audio to speed things along.

Bookwormjillk I have been reading The Sparrow off and on for years. I like it. It‘s just slow. 2d
ChaoticMissAdventures @Bookwormjillk it is interesting, I enjoy it when I pick it up, but I never seem to get very far, and keep getting distracted by other things. 40m

A small but impactful book about one American family's forced internment in a Japanese camp during WWII and the after effects. Otsuka's choice to not give the characters names makes the work feel both more intimate and like these people could have been anyone - even you. Masterfully told and an important American tale to know.

Well, that was quick, normally I would not post about a book I find horrifyingly written, but a reminder for me when I fill out my #bookspinbingo card not that I need a reminder of this bad 1920's slap stick imitation writing. And with a lot of racial plot points that I am truly uncomfortable reading knowing a white woman wrote it.
COVID reading moving forward!

This was a ride! A woman experiences trauma, wins the lottery and builds and lives in a replica Three's Company town.
Never did I know where this was going, and after finishing I still have questions on what was 'real' throughout. This was quick reading but something so deep in plot and meaning I will be thinking about it for a long time to come.

Day 4 of COVID and starting to finish some books.

This was gorgeous. I loved the setting of Cyprus and the history woven through, the chapters told by the tree gave the book a magical realism quality that fit perfectly into the weaving of the multigenerational story. Normally I am not a fan of back and forth timelines but Shafak does this seamlessly and I was so engrossed in the story I finished in a day.

I had such high hopes for this but in the end it fell flat.
The book was much too long, there were giant holes in the plot, the characters were flat and boring. There is so much drama for a story that just doesn't fit with a dramatic storyline.

🎧I flew through this!
The first chapters I had a bit of a time suspending belief (ladies companions with dukes and a bit of insta love feel)but once the story started rolling I was sucked in and was trying to find things to do while listening so I knew what happened next! 450 at first felt bit much, but the length was perfect. I ❤️ getting to know Viola, and so appreciated that Gracewood had flaws but none were treating others poorly

I am concerned about ableism in this book. I cannot put my finger on why, possibly because I do not know enough about the neurodivergent community, but there were things Molly the Maid (I actually liked the name and find it very cheery) did and didn't understand that was confusing.
I wish the last 2 chapters had been cut. It didn't do anything for the story and made things more muddled. Why is her defense lawyer suddenly a DA??

This is such an interesting premise. And the book itself is mostly about loss and grief. As always I love Hamid's writing, it is space but impactful.

I think he may have missed the mark a bit on the race issue in this, it didn't feel fully flushed out and I thought he could have gone deeper, but overall a truly gorgeous book.

I am not surprised but saddened at the amount of racist people on GR giving this 1 ⭐ childish and disgusting.

This, I have to say was a bit of a disappointment. I normally love O'Farrell's work and breeze through it with her excellent writing. I struggled to get through the first 100pages. I didn't enjoy the back and forth timeline. I do not understand why she randomly renamed Alfonso 's sisters and I spent the entirety of the book confused by who they were (she notes at the end she changed the names to avoid confusion - what?)
👇👇

ChaoticMissAdventures I absolutely hated the ending. What are we supposed to feel with her taking liberty with a historical event and putting a brutally murdered maid in the place of the dutchess who skips off in the middle of the night with an artist?? Are we supposed to be happy that the rich cultured girl got away while the girl who had nothing and spent her life caring for the Dutchess dies? There are no theories of this happening & it seemed groutesque. 2w

Plenty of twists and turns. This was fun but not too deep.

I didn't like the short changing of POV that happens almost 3/4 of the way in. It felt odd, would have been better to space that out throughout the book.

The audio is excellent with a cast of narrators.

A rare 5⭐read

Me: a vegetarian who hates the kitchen

This book: a masterpiece.

I loved the interjections and excessive use of exclamation points!! Julia Child sounded like a riot of fun and love. The story was adventurous and entertaining, it is her memoir so it is a one sided story. I am curious now about Simca's version of how the books came together.
A well written & whitty feminist book about a woman finding her passion. Loved it.

I really enjoyed this, I do not have the historical or mythological knowledge to compare this story to the original, but I loved the feminist bend, and the pacing, I also loved to see a polyamory family that is represented so healthy and loving.
I do think Kaikeyi's character was a bit flat, she seemed to be always right and a bit too perfect. But overall an engaging and adventurous read.

I really enjoyed this even though there was no time travel (IYKYK).
I thought the characters could be a bit deeper, but it was interesting to follow Lily on her journey to find her sexuality while also being concerned about Communism.
Mostly the book is about her outings to the club with Kath and her exploration of her feelings, the setting of Chinatown SF was perfect for this book and I would read Malinda Lo again.

With the help of 2,000 miles in the car last week I was able to finish Don Quixote with a mixture of listening and reading.

It wasn't my favorite classic ever and the last 200 pages were a bit of a struggle. But ✔️ made it to the end.

One week road tripping and I got through this #chunkster
It kept me entertained for the most part. But I admit I got bored towards the end. Not sure I would have finished it if I was reading it. There was a repetitiveness that makes me think 1-200 pages could have been cut.
There is a special humor throughout and it makes sense that this has continued to be a beloved classic.

#womenintranslation
Another short one in translation. I have a thing for French novels. I enjoyed this. There are so many moral topics brought up. I didn't read the intro so may have missed if the author was sending a message. The main character is likable even as she uncontrollably tries to ruin lives as she manipulates to get the life she wants. As I get older the more I cringe at predatory relationships and there is 1 here.

Librariana I knew this title looked familiar! 🧐 Ok, so if you wouldn't mind humoring me as I take you on this mental roller-coaster... I recently added a book to my never-ending TBR list (which I'll tag below) and added only after reading about its author on a Publishers Weekly article. She found inspiration for it from reading criticism on midcentury novels by French children... and Bonjour Tristesse was one of the titles mentioned! 1mo

This has been the most disappointing of my #womenintranslation reads this month.
The characters were such a drag I didn't want to pick the book up. A book that should have taken me an afternoon to read stretched to over a week. The book revolves around the main character and her ill and rude cousin. I was annoyed by the amount of times the cousin called people stupid, idiot, ugly, dumb, and more. It was painful.
