The It Girl | Ruth Ware

I was going to wait and read this for April‘s #AuthorAMonth but I waited almost 5 months for this audio hold from the library so here goes.

Made a quick run to B&N for Jane Harper‘s newest. And walked out with two more. It‘s a requirement, right?

I think reading the book instead of listening to the audio would have made all the difference. I did not enjoy the narration and felt lost the entire story. I‘m not even sure what happened in any comprehensive way. Was humanity saved or destroyed? I‘m not really sure.

Of Mice and Men | Steinbeck
post image

Short book with a big punch. There are a lot of themes to consider in this novella. It‘s depressing and bleak and tragic. Definitely not for everyone, but I like Steinbeck a lot because his writing gives me perspective.

Just finished a reread of Malibu Rising for #AuthorAMonth. Still working on the print version of Carrie Soto Is Back but it‘s slower going.

Stella Maris | Cormac McCarthy

There is a lot to process in this short follow-up to The Passenger. It‘s dense yet it didn‘t feel altogether complete to me. Still, a pick.

The narration was so good and I think I enjoyed the book more because of it.

The plot twist seemed really predictable but there I was with a *gasp* anyway. The ending faltered but overall I really liked this.

KathyWheeler I was debating what format to read this in. I see Kobna Holdbrook-Smith is one of the narrators. I love him, so I‘ll probably go with audio. 2mo

I got a little lost in The Passengers and I think it was because I was so intrigued with Western but faltered with Alicia.

I had a really hard time following this. The premise seems interesting but I just couldn‘t connect the story.

@Soubhiville

Tamra I bailed on the audio as it wasn‘t keeping my interest. But I may try it in print, just for the premise. 3mo
IndoorDame @Tamra I‘m about halfway through the print version and really enjoying it. It does skip around a lot, and it‘s not plot driven the way I expected so I can see how it would be both difficult on audio, and just not a lot of people‘s cup of tea, but I‘m okay with quiet and experimental, so I‘m super curious to see where this ends up. 3mo
Tamra @IndoorDame I enjoy that kind of writing too, so I‘m hoping print works! 3mo

BuzzFeed says this is one of the 16 books everyone should read by the time they‘re 30. Since I‘m well overdue, here‘s me playing catch up. 😂😂

(Also, anyone else really dislike book covers based on the movie/tv adaptation?)

JenReadsAlot Still on my list too! Lol 4mo
inthegreensandblues Agree, yuck to tv/movie book covers. Seeing this is read by Edward Herrmann moves it up a little on my own list. 4mo
DHill @inthegreensandblues if you like Edward Hermann give The Boys in the Boat a try. His narration was fantastic. 4mo

A little audio to get me through working on a Sunday. I‘m having a hard time getting into this one, though. The audio is a little flat for me. The story feels like it‘s just on the edge of something but the audio isn‘t quite getting it there.
