I laughed so hard. I really recommend the audiobook partly because hearing their commentary together is great, but also because you get some bonus content. It was interesting reading a memoir almost entirely about life as a couple - they pulled off that format well. Only complaint: They did a full section on fighting & how they weren't #CouplesGoals but were a bit vague about wading around in the same shit as everyone else.

Nicole Chung's written a VERY specific personal story about the way adoption has impacted her own life and choices but then infuses it with more arching statements like, "adopted children feel.." No. SOME adopted children feel. Nothing like the experience of me or my sister. I couldn't keep reading it, and if you're not an adopted person who has had a very similar emotional experience to the author you're probably going to feel annoyed

A picture in the park from months ago of a book I'd had a bit more hope for. It gets so many Handsmaid's comparisons, but never really packed that suspenseful punch for me and left too much unanswered. Still, I would like to thank #NetGalley for the free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Here's one of my biggest questions: why didn't Faber & Faber have a fucking fact checker on Moby's book? Beyond calling Natalie Portman, there are basic dates of events that you can verify with JUST GOOGLE, but no one bothered to 🤦🏻‍♀️

Kathrin I understand and support freedom of speech, but I think it‘s incredibly that obvious lies can be published. And this is entertainment related... not much harm done... when you think about political or scientific publication, there is real harm. 7mo
FreeReadAndWrite @Kathrin all due respect, publishers hire fact checkers on memoirs for a reason - it absolutely does have an effect. The average memoir is going to reach and impact popular culture and beliefs more than anything scientifically published. There's a reason they call academia a bubble (I say as someone who came from academia). 7mo
FreeReadAndWrite @Kathrin and all you have to do is look at the conversation on consent and dating as a result of this book to know that. Free speech? Sure. But this literally ignored publishing 101. 7mo
Kathrin @FreeReadAndWrite I see what you say. There is still harm in this case too. My point was more, that while they might hire fact checkers, there is way too much unproven out there... on both sides of the political spectrum. 7mo

Ryle teaches the social construction of gender through a choose your own adventure style. I wasn't just learning about gender, but SPECIFICALLY about being a bisexual white married woman who identifies as "she" living in a disabled body in the United States. I can see it inspiring empathy for others after learning the surprising ways their experiences may be both similar & different. And this is definitely a time we need a little more empathy.

readordierachel Yes to all of this! 8mo
LaLecture Wow, that sounds like an interesting concept! 8mo
FreeReadAndWrite @readordierachel it's so fucking cool. I can't stop thinking of ways this can be used to teach non-academics in such unique ways 8mo
FreeReadAndWrite @LaLecture it was so neat! I did other paths after my own, & I can't believe how well she designed the routes. So impressive 8mo

I really wanted to like this more, but it needed a MUCH better editor. So much of it was details that were extraneous & didn't propel anything forward (plot, an understanding of the characters, etc). I even loved the narrator but still found it dragging. And it ended up centering around social justice issue which it then barely commented on - why introduce it at all? That being said, it might be the most original murder mystery I've ever read.

WhatWouldJaneDo Agreed, especially about the ending. I felt like the author wanted to be so mysterious about who Aiden and Anna really were but then use them to make this big point and it just didn't balance out. I thought their relationship was way too thin, I didn't get why he cared about her so much other than her name being the only thing he remembered when he first woke up. 9mo
FreeReadAndWrite @WhatWouldJaneDo SAME! So much of this story that would have been interesting was bogged down in details that didn't make sense or didn't matter 9mo
FreeReadAndWrite @WhatWouldJaneDo which is maybe extra disappointing bc in concept it was so cool 9mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @FreeReadAndWrite right?! It's such a cool set up and I love puzzly stuff so I was really underwhelmed. 9mo
Rachel_nyc I agree. I made the decision early on while reading to try my best not to get bogged down with plot holes or extraneous details so I enjoyed it a bit more than it seems you did but it was hardly perfect. Definitely deserves points for originality though! 9mo

Happy belated #InternationalWomensDay! I'm sharing some of my favorite bad-ass female authors, including Lindy West, who (very comically) reminded us all that abortion is normal, it's ok to be fat, & women don't have to be nice to you. ❤️ It should probably be required reading in sociology of gender courses

This book is phenomenal and one of the most insane true stories I've read. Dude straight up conned people for a decade simply by using the name "Rockefeller." Ok, so I know he's a murderer and all, but sometimes I really wish I was cool enough to be a con man. Anyway, happy #SockSunday!

FreeReadAndWrite @NeesyBeth ooooh in what way did it freak you out? 9mo
SleepyDragon @FreeReadAndWrite It freaked me out because it seems like an incredibly plausible near future and I was familiar enough the Southern California setting for it to hit very close to home. It was so realistic and plausible that I felt it could be our reality in 10-15 years. I don't want to say more because of spoilers, but this book is so amazing that I don't think I could ever reread it. It will stay with me forever. 9mo

Pros: Spoken word game is on point in the audio. Thomas effortlessly weaves in so much of the everyday experience of Black ppl in the U.S. into all of her stories. And I am so impressed with the way that she can get inside the mind of a teenager.
Cons: This one is far more predictable than THUG. I also didn't connect as well to material in a world which I really know nothing about. And in this one the teenage romance DOES get heavy handed.

It‘s come to my attention that people don‘t know there is such a comprehensive book about The Wire. The interviews, which build upon one another just as the seasons did, are so insightful that they actually brought me around on season 2. I listened to audio with very talented voice actors who sounded exactly like their real life counterparts, and it was so great I bought a hard copy just to have. Let it enhance your rewatch like it has for me! ❤️

For anyone who‘s been following this case as closely as I have - new doc premiering on HBO!

WhatThePuck This story is crazy. I'm still on season 1 of Undisclosed, but I did finish Serial. I was recently watching a true crime documentary that was talking about cell towers and I rolled my eyes after the in-depth interview about cell towers not being a reliable source like GPS. 10mo
FreeReadAndWrite @WhatThePuck oh man yeah I really recommend Undisclosed. Serial got a lot wrong that they correct. Also, they‘re just a bomb team of attorneys. They‘re the ones who found the evidence that actually got Adnan a new trial, & I think I‘ve only listened to one season where they didn‘t uncover new evidence for someone to use. Their listeners even got an execution stayed the day of. Changing peoples‘ lives for real. 10mo
WhatThePuck @FreeReadAndWrite I'm trying. I used to have a lot of alone time at work. Now I share my office. Lol. Plus I'm behind on my audio books. Hopefully when it starts to warm up again I can get some more listening in. I'm pretty sure the last episode I listened to was the cell tower info. That the fax cover sheet even said the information was not to be used for location services. 10mo

#BooksTBT- “What happened to me could happen to anybody.” I used to say I don‘t like character studies, but now I think I think I‘ve just been reading the wrong kind. The prose here flowed without feeling too poetic. While there are 3 primary human characters in the book, there is also a character study spotlight on our broken criminal justice system. As much a comment on our current paradigm as on this particular, average family.
