A very persistent wannabe… 🤨

LiteraryinLawrence I just read that part yesterday! 6d
JohnLAndBenji This is so racist. 6d
Hazel2019 @JohnLAndBenji it certainly is! That‘s the point the author is trying to make. This book is on the shortlist for women‘s prize for fiction right now and it definitively puts a lot of things in your face while attempting some mild dark humor. It gives you lots to think about. 5d
Hazel2019 @LiteraryinLawrence what do you think about the book so far? Definitely not what I was expecting but that‘s a good thing. 5d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was perfect. At first I felt some some parts were too dense and skipped over too quickly, not exploring the complex issues sufficiently. But in the end, it just felt right. It taught me a lot about Cyprus and some of its tragedies that happened in not too distant past and the pain that lives on in peoples hearts.

Addison_Reads Great review. I just finished this one too and loved it. 1w

⭐️⭐️⭐️ a mystery with several things going on, that all come together in the end. A fast read, with chapters that you‘ll fly through & some unexpected twists. Basically if you‘re in a reading slump, this might be the book for you!
A few couples deal with lost opportunities and want a second chance, & there is a not so sweet old lady who has lost her husband and her eyesight at the center of it all. Not a bad story but not memorable IMO.

When Women Kill | Alia Trabucco Zern
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ WOW! A great narrative, a beautiful translation and an impactful and thought-provoking read. Describes four murders committed by women in Chile in the 20th century. The crimes themselves are horrific but Alia Trabucco Zerán will also guide you through the narrative that accompanied them due to the gender of the perpetrators. Highly recommended!

Snakes and Earrings | Hitomi Kanehara, David James Karashima

I‘m kind of conflicted about this one but I‘ll give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There is a sadist, a masochist, a good amount of depression and a ‘love triangle‘ …if you can call it that. It‘ll give you quite a bit to think about and it is a really quick read. It was going to read it in March but read it in a couple hours today

⭐️⭐️⭐️

3 stars for the book but 5 ⭐️s for the cover! I really do love it 😁

A woman suffers from a curious condition where she slips into a coma at times and appears to be dead. And she‘s married to a man that‘s interested in her $$$ a lot more than he is in her. You can imagine what could happen when you combine these two ideas. Not a bad read at all but not a favorite either.

Minor Detail | Adania Shibli

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Will be a solid contender for my favorite of 2022.

Part 1 takes place during the Palestine / Israel conflict..the Israeli soldiers capture a teenage girl, rape, kill and bury her.

Part 2 takes place close to current day where a woman tries to uncover the details of the crime.

The book is beautifully written but clearly deals I with a very raw and horrific topic. It‘ll stay with me for a while.

CaroPi I read this book a couple of years ago and really like it. The narrative is heartbreaking 3mo

3.5 ⭐️s

A VERY quick read, all written in the form of slack chats. One of the office workers gets stuck in slack and all sort of weirdness ensues. It is quirky, funny but don‘t expect any deep life lessons out of this one 😁 if you have a few free hours, give it a try.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tana French does such a great job using the concept of family - blood relatives or chosen. I‘ve seen this in a number of her books and it always leaves me longing for that close connection. But unfortunately, it doesn‘t take long for cracks to start showing.

I truly loved this one and left me broken hearted.

Highly recommended although it is long and a slow burn. Be ready.

So my challenge this year is to read all the books I have on my shelves that I haven‘t read yet. 💕💕💕

I did pre-order a couple more books so they‘ll come in when they get released. Other than that, no buying new books all year!! Hmm… 🤔 wonder if that‘s doable 😁

Any books that I don‘t like will get I hauled 😃

Good luck to me I guess LOL 🙃

Yuki_Onna I love this! 🤘
I'd like to adopt this goal for me as well. - as I have about 1000 unread books on my shelves, however, (and read 15 books this year...) for me that goal is a tad unlikely... 😅 Good luck to you!!! 💛

The Searcher | Tana French
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When starting this one, I was worried I wouldn‘t like it. I heard it was very different than Tana French‘s last novel (the witch elm) and that didn‘t seem like a selling point.

If you‘re having the same reservations, worry not. It‘s still got Tana French all over it.

It‘s a missing persons mystery, with the question of - how do we define what is good and what is not - at the core of it. Not as easy as one might think.

Loved it.

LKK526 I read this earlier this year, also going into it warily. I too loved it The main characters were irresistible (edited) 5mo

I actually ended up DNFing this one. I do love the author‘s writing style, it‘s beautiful and impactful, but the ideas in the book were so thoroughly described in Dear Senthuran (the author‘s recent memoir)I just couldn‘t get into Freshwater. I might come back to it, it just didn‘t feel like the right read for me right now.

#LMPBC @magyklyXdelish @collegecatlady @shadowspeak17

Yes, this book needs some uninterrupted time. You have to let yourself get into it without disruption…and when you do, it is such a great read! It‘s fascinating and funny, really well researched, and gave me so much more perspective on what really took place back in those days. I was worried this would be dry and was somewhat intimidated by this book. It wasn‘t and I loved it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5⭐️ A beautiful & impactful tale. A story about Wallace who‘s lived his life putting his work as a lawyer above all else - including family & friends. So when his life ends suddenly, and the one thing that gave him meaning is taken away, he must learn how to appreciate the things he didn‘t notice before. But there‘s so much more to it and so many more great characters that you‘ll truly feel very close to by the time this journey ends. 💕

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
To me this did not feel sad, but it did have a numbing effect at times, the way grief does. It also seemed to move beyond grief and slip briefly into madness, again and again. It is a story of a woman that is losing her husband to cancer, her experience during his final weeks of life, and her life shortly after his death as she‘s figuring out her own identity.
A great interview with JCO here https://youtu.be/NElkoUXn2Nc

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ it was hard to get into this at first, the style, names, the small snippets of the story left me confused but in the end this was a winner! It‘s a story of a family running a hair business - buying from poor women in poor countries and selling to those that can afford and want to look fabulous! But that only turns out to only be a small part of the story. A good thriller with some magical realism thrown in.

An expedition of humans and androids lands on a new planet with the intention of determining whether it could be inhabited by humans. However, things start getting really strange as soon as they arrive as some crew members catch a mysterious illness and the androids seem off as well.

Wow…what to say about this one. It‘s a good horror, creepy, weird, gross, gory…maybe too much so for my taste but overall the book is great. I did have to skip a few pages here and there where it just got to be too much but if that stuff doesn‘t bother you, definitely pick it up. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - would have been higher if it wasn‘t for all the stomach-turning scenes. #LMPBC #Round12 #GroupS @suvata @shadowspeak17 @collegecatlady @magyklyXdelish

magyklyXdelish Can NOT wait ♥️ I read little heaven by him in another LMPBC group and that one was gross and gory and fun. Lol 9mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It was a new experience for me…I feel like I should read it again to tie it all together. It starts with a former actress working at an audio theater, which will soon be shutting down permanently. But perhaps that‘s all unimportant. What follows is a (as the translator calls it) ‘repetition, mirroring, echoing, and overlapping‘ of events, characters and details. Hard to describe. Definitely worth a read. Or two. Or three.

Dilara Sound fantastic ! I loved A Greater Music by the same author. 9mo
