Meh. So, I loved the PBS show and wanted to find out what happens next. Didn‘t realize this library copy was pretty much just a novelization of the show‘s script. 🤦🏻‍♀️ No new info here. Skip it and watch the show (or get a different novel version). 😂

Set in a village in a forest in Japan, this book is another cozy, fast read. It‘s a classic “fish out of water” type story (city kid in nature). I liked touches of magical realism based on the village‘s Shinto beliefs, and the descriptions of the setting are beautiful.

#WorldBookDay

Fast, fun, free—hurray! This romcom is set in and written by an author from Mumbai. Though the background may be serious (homosexuality was illegal in India until fairly recently) the plot line is and characters are lovably sweet. Plus, the food descriptions made me hungry!

Free until 4/27 at https://www.amazon.com/article/read-the-world-2022

Graywacke Oh good. I picked up a free copy yesterday. 4w

Music Is History | Questlove
post image
Pickpick

Questlove = one of the coolest people on the planet and a living music encyclopedia.

This book is a fun, fast read through a personal history of music through the eyes of Questlove. It covers music (mostly Black American music) from 1971-2020. I enjoyed the more recent couple of decades better (probably just because I could get more of the references). Lots of searching on Google and Spotify to listen as you read Quest‘s insights. #BigLibraryRead

Hotel Du Lac | Anita Brookner

Melancholy and atmospheric. Brookner‘s characters are so sad and lonely even when with each other (maybe especially when together).

tokorowilliamwallace I had considered making an exclusively Anita Brookner order from Thriftbooks. I'm still hoping I can find her work thrifting soon. 1mo
Karisa @tokorowilliamwallace This is the first book I‘d read of hers. I‘m sure to be on the lookout for her on future book buys too. This one will keep me thinking about the characters for a while. 1mo

So my first send off for round 14 is living up to my book choice‘s name (Awkward). 🤦🏻‍♀️ It‘s packaged up along with Stargazing and ready to put in the post tomorrow to @IndoorDame (Sorry to double book you!) 😬 Great books so far! I‘m betting many middleschool students at my school would love both of them too. Hope you all are doing well!

What‘s it like to live a sister/nun‘s life in the modern world? This was an interesting look from behind the habit. Melancholy but filled with sweet, multilayered characters. It was hard to leave Agatha at the end. I‘ll be wondering how she is doing for awhile (even while realizing she‘s fictional 😅).

Another book that I would never have even heard of without #NewYearWhoDis! Thanks again, @monalyisha and @erinreads 😊

monalyisha I so loved this one, too! That roller skating scene really did me in. 💓 2mo
AmyG I love reading about nuns. 2mo
Karisa @monalyisha Oh! The Gary Tim and Agatha scenes were so good! 😢 @AmyG I haven‘t read many books with nuns before as the main character especially. I could never make that kind of commitment to religion so I think I couldn‘t see the real person inside the habit as Agatha put it. It was fascinating to see it through Agatha‘s eyes and empathize with her. 2mo
AmyG I am fascinated by someone who chooses that life. Ha, I‘m Jewish. 2mo

Ok, what do you think, #LMPBC Group M? I‘m back from the bookstore with these 3 and another copy of Amulet 1 because my copies at school keep disappearing. . . I think the kids are eating that book! 😂

Anyhoo, my options:
📚Awkward by Svetlana Chmakova (because my Ss love Raina T types)
📚Manu by Kelly Fernandez (Fantasy, magic school prank goes wrong)
📚The Ghoul Next Door by Cullen Bunn & Cat Farris

LibrarianRyan Nice selection. I have not read awkward but I read book 3 in that series and loved it (didn‘t know it was a series at the time). But all these have been on my TBR. 3mo
IndoorDame These all look fun! I‘ve heard good things about Awkward, but I‘m happy with whatever you pick! 3mo

I‘ve done on lmpbc on black/white manga and it worked fine. Have you all tried the markups with graphic novels before? What works for you? 3mo
LibrarianRyan @Karisa I usually to post it tabs or transparent post it in full color graphic novels. Mainly because I can‘t bring my self to cover someone else‘s art. 3mo
IndoorDame @Karisa I‘d be happy with that. I tend to prefer not writing in GNs. How do other people feel? 3mo
Allylu Seems like a crime to cover someone‘s artwork. I have lots of post-its. 3mo
Allylu So we have Awkward, Stargazing, Snapdragon, and Rutabaga? Is that right? 3mo
Karisa @LibrarianRyan @IndoorDame @Allylu Post-its or tabs work for me too. It‘ll be easier to separate artwork from annotations. Sounds like a wonderful lineup. I‘m excited for Round 14! 3mo

Perfect #BlackHistoryMonth (or anytime) read! The ending packs a punch! It‘s a collection of stories/novella about “grief and loss, and about women unwilling to diminish their desires to live full and complex lives.” (Author‘s words) It‘s fantastic and tough to put down!

Thanks @erinreads for the #NewYearWhoDis recommendation! I have a few more library requests out for some of the others. @monalyisha matched us so well! 💗

Wow! From that powerful first line to the end, this book is a force of nature. It showcases McConaghy‘s deep knowledge of ecology (both through the dynamics of wolf packs and human communities). It kept me wondering throughout about mysteries in the plot as well as being amazed by the author‘s immense talent. She‘s able to say so much in just a few words. Loved it!

Eccentric rich guy dies and turns finding his fortune into a citywide game. What a fun, smart, wild ride with little bits of poignant darkness for balance.

I can see why this one made your best of 2021 list, @erinreads (and your best of 2020, @monalyisha ). It has great pacing from start to finish and a “finding your people” theme that always pulls me in. The characters are quirky and cool. I‘ll be recommending this to others too! #NYWD22

Plucky kids creating their own communities, parents giving away their kids, ghosts with pets, and Chicago in the 1940s… I loved this historical fiction fantasy book! I loved it even more after reading the author‘s endnote about how Frankie‘s story was largely inspired by her grandmother‘s life.

I really enjoyed this thinker of a book! So many puzzle pieces to put together and characters to love (and hate). The theme of in-between, liminal spaces repeats and makes it hard to tell sometimes what is real. Great pick for #lmpbc, @Littlewolf1 and should be on its way to @Readergrrl right after New Years.

tokorowilliamwallace In 2020 I attended two discussions for this book from two of the groups of the city book club, and they were fun! I loved the characterizations of the atmosphere and characters by the participants, though most of them weren't much a fan of it. 1mo

I need to add to some of these to my repertoire! Anyone have any polished signature lines to keep a convo going?

The example from the book is “I‘m glad you‘re here.” and one of my favorites is “What‘s new? What‘s exciting?” I usually get some fun responses. 😊

This slim 200 page novel packs in so much folklore, history, and action! It was recommended to me by one of my middle schoolers (she‘s normally more of a reluctant reader). Yemaya—a powerful mermaid orisha,Harriet Tubman, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Frederick Douglas, indigenous Americans, enslaved people, and Quakers all have a moment to shine here. Celebrating heroes, compassion, and never giving up seem to be the themes. I loved it all!

Mehso-so

I will remember the unique premise of this book for a long time and the interspersement of article clippings was clever. I feel like maybe if I was the type to love horror movies a bit more I would have appreciated this book a little better (like I was missing some inside jokes). The humor made me just sad for the characters. Is it unfair for me to be irked when a male writer writes a book with almost entirely abused/tortured female characters?

AFrostCauseReads I definitely get what you mean about the male author writing about abused women. But I have come to trust this author based off three other books I‘ve read of his that all feature female POV. He writes women as characters, with strengths and weaknesses and desires. And for this book he took his time discussing sexist issues in the genera, and I think he did it well. And it‘s pretty tough to write about final girls without featuring abused women (edited) 6mo
