Seriously, can The Weather Channel not afford editors? Do people not read anymore? Is this “obsolete form of choke” the best they can do? I clicked on it to make sure it wasn‘t some other website‘s clickbait. Nope, just The Weather Channel hurting my English teacher heart. 😩😭

I loved this book so much! It‘s an epic story of family and belonging, but I what I adore most is the author‘s masterful use of characterization and dialogue. Even secondary characters have such specialized personalities and mannerisms that really add to the reading experience. Boyne is quickly becoming a must buy for me.

Ok, so are there people who actually read their #BOTM pick in the same year it was received? Asking for a friend 🤔😏😅

8little_paws I actually do! I generally read them the month I get them. I think I might have one or two I'm behind on but for the most part, I knock them out fast. It's a “deal“ I made with myself if I want to keep the subscription up 😂 4w

Loved it! Interesting POV, interesting look at women‘s roles and parenting, and interesting take on people‘s ability to assume and misunderstand rather than communicate. A winner for me 🏆

Anyone part of The First Look Book Club? Each morning this week, I got to read a part of The Water Dancer, and now I‘m super excited to get my #BOTM box this month 💃🏽 Every week is a new release. It‘s a great way to preview a book before buying or wasting a checkout at the library.

Pretty excited about these two—First Look Book Club is offering a daily excerpt from The Water Dancer this week. I wasn‘t really interested in the book, but after reading the first bit, I‘m down for it. And then some kids catching on fire. My two kids have thrown some fits that seemed to come close to combustion, so I feel pretty comfortable reading about that 😏🤷‍♀️ #botm

Ehh, I may be giving up on this one. My book club picked it. I gave it about 50 pages, but if we‘re being honest, I‘m kind of over the unreliable narrator who‘s been accused of a crime that we don‘t know if she committed or not because we only get her account of the story. I have so many other books waiting for me. #movingon 🤷‍♀️

cathysaid Yes!!! That sort of narration has bothered me for a while. It‘s been done. And done. And done again. Enough! 2mo
lele1432 I hate the unreliable narrator trope. I really liked this one but I think the audio version really enhanced it. Not sure it would have hit the same in print. 🤔 2mo
Erinreadsthebooks @lele1432 I think you‘re right. My coworker really loved the audio version, too. 2mo
Erinreadsthebooks @cathysaid Yes, preach!!! 🙌 And they‘ll keep publishing and marketing these books, and BOTM will keep choosing them as options...It‘s a vicious, never ending cycle. 2mo

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 A super important novel that reiterated the importance of the Me Too movement. I loved the characters and setting the author created. I loved the badassery shown by the young female characters. My English teacher heart loved the prep school setting and English teacher main character. I wish the ending had been handled differently, but that‘s my only complaint...and it‘s a tiny complaint 🤷‍♀️ A total pick in my book 👍🙌✔️🔥

I‘m in more of a reading valley than a slump. The reading struggle has been so real for months now 😫 Eileen was a DNF although I liked it well enough, I‘m currently reading/listening to The Goldfinch, picking up some Anne Lamott wisdom here and there, but nothing is making me crave time with a book. I‘m going to throw in another one and just see what happens! Wish me luck 😁🤞
