This book was described as "part feminist tale," indeed it is. This quote resonates with my soul !

I received my #WinterSwap package a few days ago! @CaliforniaCay ! There isn't a picture because it was hidden away because sometimes I'm naughty ! Yours will go out tomorrow , it's all wrapped and ready to go! #LitsyLove

CaliforniaCay I wasn't sure when you posted this if I was also your match or not, but I just got your package and what are the odds we got each other?! I can't wait to open it, I already know you sent me more than I sent you cuz it feels so heavy 😱 4d
Kayla.Adriena @CaliforniaCay I'm glad it made it to you! I was worried because I forgot to put your Apt # on it 3d
CaliforniaCay @Kayla.Adriena no worries at all! The address you sent it to was actually my landlords office, so no apartment number needed. That's the address I give people for packages because if mail doesn't fit in my little mailbox it will sometimes just get tossed over the fence 😱 1d

I loathe the time change! But I love this book so far! This is how I got through it! I want extra daylight at the end of the day not the beginning, so I don't understand how it's daylight savings." Seems like we should get to vote on it honestly. P. S. Clearly Canadian was my obsession in the 90s and I just had to have at every sleepover/Bday party ?

madamereadsalot1 One of my favorites read this year. 2w

#SelfieSunday! I was in a wedding over the weekend and forced to take this at the end of the night! Actually any and all pictures taken of me were forced ha! Not book related other than the fact that the whole night all I was thinking was how much I wanted to be home in the solace of books! Somehow at age 30 I have definitely developed social anxiety. In a hall full of people I felt so lonely 😣. Neway now y'all know what I look like 😉

I FINALLY finished a book ? Lots of stuff went over my head and I wished the characters had more interaction or "time" with each other

Texreader The book sounds good, but also sounds like it could be a slow tedious read—which I cannot do. Is it? 2mo
Kayla.Adriena @Texreader yes I would agree with that assessment. Overall I liked it but it has a lot of philosophy and "musings" by the different characters, it's also translated from French I believe 2mo
Texreader @Kayla.Adriena Thanks. I think I‘ll have to pass. Appreciate your honesty! 2mo
Crazeedi I have this in my tbr pile, thank for review 2mo
writerlibrarian The original French novel is divise. You either like it or hate it. I loved the whole class portrait of the rich French upper class. 2mo

SOLD to the same company that owns Waterstones! Let's hope for positive change! May I suggest starting with removal of the toy section and the freaken rows of DVDs?!

KatieDid927 I agree about the DVDs, less so about the toys. I like them and they do help them boost sales. 3mo
Birdsong28 Waterstones is a really good company, I like their stores and online presence. Customer service is wonderful. And they don't sell dvds!!! Lol📚📖 3mo

Loved It! Lots of parts made me tear up! Especially when Karen talks about her mom having dementia and when Georgia talks about her struggles with anxiety. They also give so much respect to Michelle McNamara and the book makes me feel like less of a freak about a lot of things honestly. Highly recommend!

Kayla.Adriena @madamereadsalot1 it's a group of 4 members and each person picks a book and marks notes in it then sends it to the next person and so on so on. Eventually you end up with your original book all marked up with everyone's notes! 4mo
