Three Women | Lisa Taddeo
Pickpick

Exciting page-turner. Non fiction but gripping story. Made me sad and uncomfortable but also validated that other women feel like I feel sometimes. Did not make me like myself or other women or humanity all the time - but I guess we are all in it, searching for connection

Love most of it! Great insights into 60-80s psychology. A bit disappointed by the ending. But overall great family dynamics

Fantastic! Highly recommend. Very sad, made me angry at humanity (and our lack there of) but beautifully written, fast paced

I enjoyed it, especially the ending (the universe is vast, it all comes down to love) but it needed to be more heavily edited

Supper Club | Lara Williams

Strange book. Liked the depiction of women having really appetite and desire, but the protagonist seemed weak and easily manipulated and like she didn‘t know herself - even at the end

Strange family drama set in 1994. Deals with mental illness, depression, suicide and love.

Green Road | Anne Enright

Loved/hated all the characters at any one time. Mark of a good story? A tale of the relationships between children and their mother, between siblings

Took a bit to get in to, but interesting perspective on the slave/servant experience in the early 1800s in England

The Melting Queen | Bruce Cinnamon

Cool to read a local book. Touch of magical realism, but mostly just an interesting portrait of real people

It‘s for kids? But even then thought the story was disjointed. Don‘t care enough to read more

Great writing. Meandering story, but good insight into 1960s-70s Ireland

City of Girls | Elizabeth Gilbert

Wanted to like it, but had such a rushed ending. The fact that she‘s writing a letter to the daughter of someone close to her, who we never meet. Seemed contrived?

Enjoyed the perspective of U-boat captain, the story about the young steward was a bit hollow
