Super predictable with shallow characters and an odd style but an easy read set in a truly beautiful part of the world! Read over dinner in honour of @MrBook #tatertots #litsypartyofone

MrBook Aww, well not every one can be a winner 😕. 1d

What should have been a nice romance whilst tackling the painful topic of infertility was spoiled by tone deaf handling of Kirsten‘s medical condition and a frankly baffling second half of the book. Plus side found a beautiful spot to finish this on a bright bitterly cold Maine day

FlowerFairy What a lovely reading spot! 2d

Fleishman Is in Trouble: A Novel | Taffy Brodesser-Akner
post image
Pickpick

How do I feel about this? It‘s undoubtedly well written and the storyline is compelling. Yet I am conflicted. As a satire of marriage and upper middle class middle age woes it‘s en point and unflinchingly honest. However much of the story is written in ‘might as well be first person‘ which I found really difficult especially as we hit the last fifth of the books which felt a little rushed. #litsypartyofone #mrbook1inamillion

This was a total #blameitonlitsy. I enjoyed that this was a set of personal experiences vs a self help recipe. As@someone who juggles a lot I really liked the different approaches to figuring out where and how to prioritise. Will be trying some in Ernest ! Also lots of fun art work like this throughout making fro a quick and yet interesting read (not my usual genres at all!)

Libby1 Yikes! I might buy this. I‘ve been floundering for awhile. ❤️ 2w

Fascinating historical fiction bit with slightly patchy writing. First part was fascinating then fell into epistolary style which fell a little flat. Glad I read and interesting in knowing more about this couple (wish I had read earlier in the holiday and we might have side tracked to see more of the places mentioned ##

This book is so many things I don‘t like - poetic language and a story of the terrible things people do to children. However I loved it - Ari is a fabulous, sadly old before her time protagonist and I found the language beautiful and hopeful. I think this is one that will stick.

This is so far from my usual reading it‘s practically a different hobby. Picked it up in a random queue a few weeks ago and have devoured it on my ferry crossing to Spain.

Hi lovely Litsy people my husband has me on a search for a reading for a remembrance day service in work (yes I know November is months away) but does not want a traditional first world war commonwealth poem. Do any of you poetry lovers out there have any ideas? ThAnks

CarolynM Alan Seeger maybe? Still WWI but he was American. I think I have a WWII anthology in the library. I'll have a look and get back to you. 2mo
CarolynM Sorry, the book I thought was WWII was actually more WWI (I'm a bit obsessed). Poetryfoundation.org lists some poetry about the Vietnam War which may be of interest. Good luck. 2mo

I really enjoyed this multi dimensional story my first by this author. I loved the main character and the elements do her graphic novel in the book but also the relationship between her and her grandmother (I‘m a sucker for cross generational friendships). Some of the themes were a little too obvious but it was still a really enjoyable read. D I shall look for more by this author !

lynneamch This was SO good. Also, themes of overt and covert racism handled well. Would be good for @Eggs #SoulSeptember #Sisters challenge. I've appreciated Joshilyn Jackson since I first listened to 2mo

This was exceptionally well written but so hard to read. I have come to American Civil Rights history later in life and the more I learn the harder it is to understand do and the sadder I find it. This book also warns loud warning signals that the search for equality is a too slow and ongoing ongoing journey. So many references in the notes I want to follow up on later.

Why did I do this to myself? For me this was an absolute pan. The characters had none of the lightness or charm of the original and the relationships between the girls was almost none existent. As a stand alone contemporary It was poor, having been a military wife the opportunity to explore that impact on family life was missed or made trite. Genuinely can‘t believe I finished it

This was hard going. It‘s very well written and some of the turns of phrase and period details are great. However the positives stop there I found the protagonist difficult to engage with and the plotting gappy. Not for me really

Hooked_on_books So many people love this book and I hated it. I was much harder on it than you. 😂 3mo
Itchyfeetreader @Hooked_on_books I appreciated the quality of the words and writing itself even whilst disclaiming almost everything about the actual story! That said I must have picked it up and put it down SO many times it just didn‘t captivate me like it seems to have done for some people 3mo
rretzler It was just so-so for me as well. I found the writing a little simplistic and I really couldn‘t fathom Julia‘s motivation for anything. I did like the WWII aspect. If I had paid more attention to the Amazon reviews, I probably would not have read it! 3mo

Well that‘s the longest it‘s ever taken me to read a thin book! This tale of a pregnant lady finding her husband has cheated was written in a overly chatty, long sentence, stream of consciousness form that did little for me. There are some great, honest and heartwarming quotes but overall I did not care for the protagonist and it all felt a bit cutesy yet aged!

TheEllieMo I had such high hopes for this book - I mean, Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally, what could there be not to like. But it just didn‘t deliver 4mo

So objectively this was not a good book. In fact it was prett bad - as a thriller the attempts to create intrigue were transparent and as a police procedural it really needed police who followed some sort of procedure. And yet.... I stayed up late to finish it and really liked the characters. I‘d probably give another of the series a go if only to check in and see how they get on !

Well then. So many thoughts! (Skipping right past the weird lack of punctuation) I think she nailed the almost desperation and pedestal placing we can do with our first loves. However ultimately I found this unsatisfying - relationships and characters cycle vs grow and the flat storytelling loses its interest after the first half. Moving, I felt for the characters but was not invested in their story

Take 2 at reviewing this fab little collection of lectures. Mary Beard is succinct yet knowledgable. Loved the first chapter which touched on some sociolinguistics as well as drawing on feminist thinking, classical history and modern politics. Thanks for sending this one @jenniferw88

Itchyfeetreader There was a moment in time where I nearly studied socio linguistics. My A level project was transcribing and reviewing the way a group of 10 year old boys and girls spoke when working on a school art project together. It was fascinating to see how hey were starting to develop gendered language structure, styles etc. This talked a bit to that for me!! The path not taken! 5mo

That‘s all six down then. Ages since I have forged on a series. This felt weaker than earlier outings and the protagonist is harder to like than some of the others but altogether well written.
