Creepy as hell, and I‘m here for it 👍
It‘s a hard pass for me on this month‘s #BOTM
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 🤔😏😅
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 🤷♀️
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 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 👍🙌✔️🔥
The wait is over 💃🏽💪👊🥳🤩🙌👏
Umm...🤔 I am reading The Goldfinch and, therefore, should read a YA novel with this ridiculous blurb?! Goodreads has lost its mind. #thatsastretch
I had a meeting at my son‘s school, and they‘re having a book fair (be still, my heart 😍🤗🎉). The minute I spied this gem, alllllll the memories of reading this series came rushing back. I LOVED these books as a kid!
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 😁🤞
Here I go, @irre Starting this one today and I‘ll get it to you ASAP!
Alas, here I am in the conundrum of finishing a book during vacation and not knowing which of the 3️⃣ books to start now...
