Bridge of Clay | Markus Zusak

Lastly (I ran out of characters 😂) was Bridge of Clay by Marcus Zusak which I honestly think was my least favorite novel written by him. Highly recommend his other reads!!

Speak | Laurie Halse Anderson
post image

I call this a “bottom shelf semester” all of my YA or Elementary level books live on my bottom shelf and because I was in a YA Lit class we read a lot!
First was Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson which I LOVED
2nd- Monster by Walter Dean Myers (7/10 very happy ending)
3rd- The Hunger Games (10/10 wouldn‘t teach)
4th- The Lovely War by Julie Barry (4/10)
5th- Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (10/10)
6th- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, 7

LibrarianRyan Out of curiosity, why wouldn‘t you teach Hunger games? 1mo
Lindsay.Butier @LibrarianRyan I would have it on my shelf for suggestion but I feel there‘s other dystopian/sci-fi that I could connect easier to real-life scenarios and lead to more open discussions.. idk just my opinion!! 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Lindsay.Butier your opinion is valid. I just like to ask. I personally wouldn't teach the chronicles of Narnia and I know that's a “controversial“ opinion. 1mo

The First Rule of Swimming: A Novel | Courtney Angela Brkic
Mehso-so

As a Croatian I thought there was a lot of history in here that I was unaware of (confirmed with my aunt) but it was so so slow in the beginning. The middle and end definitely pick up speed and pull you in quickly!!

sprainedbrain This book has a lovely cover! 2mo

Started this book at 2 o‘clock yesterday and just finished it. All I can say is wow. No matter your political stance, no matter your religion, open your mind and heart and read this

Definitely an anti war story and I definitely spent some time on spark-notes trying to understand different points.. overall loved Vonnegut‘s writing and how he draws you in to the point where you feel a little crazy too!

Wow. This took me a day to finish (wish everyone could see my eyes burning rn from trying to stay up) and it was the most intense book with many layers and I‘m so haunted by this story and lessons I need her other book in my hands rn please.

I get why everyone raves about this book... this gorgeous portrayal of a Russian count and life before and after war. I agree with most... the first hundred or so pages had me yawning but towards the end I understood why they were so essential. If you have time for a 500 page novel you must read this!!

I tried for about 156 pages to get into this. Tried really hard I was expecting a fantastic novel that pulled my heart strings and instead it was this patchwork quilt of stories that was confusing and hard to follow.... super bummed. Maybe I‘ll try the movie??

Aims42 Ooo, good to know! I've got this on my TBR list, will keep my expectations in check 👍 7mo

All I can say is WOW. I personally don‘t believe Ware introduced this book properly as the beginning was horribly confusing. However after about 100 pages or so I was HOOKED. Wares plot reminded me of Agatha Christie‘s and I truly never saw the ending coming

I found this extremely intriguing... it had some hints of a thriller but still managed to be a “light read” which was an interesting choice for the author. Loved it overall!!

This was the most disappointing book I have read in a long time. Easily Egan could have stopped after 100 pages and wrapped it up. Easily forgettable don‘t recommend wasting your time.

From page one the story is predictable. She‘s going to leave Mike but the accident halts that plan and then meets Kilty or whatever and from that moment they were bound to fall I love. Gave up after 100 pages and then read the last ten to see if I was right (I was)

I feel like yes this book was good and kudos to Rachel for addressing some really hard stuff. But I feel like this book better suits woman that just got married or are trying to have kids. Just me? As a woman in my 20s I definitely got some great nuggets of wisdom out of the pages but I feel like it wasn‘t 100% geared towards me

Ok I‘m dumb for finishing this and even dumber for paying for this garbage. This was the most poorly developed novel ever. Like the incest relationship? Why. EW. Emily‘s twin? Her mother didn‘t have dementia she just was old. God STEPHANIE. YOU REALLY BELIEVED EMILY. SHE JUST TORMENTED YOU FOR MONTHSSSSSS. also. anyone else believe Sean and Stephanie could have made it if you know Emily lived? Just me?

I think the ending was phenomenal. Last hundred or so pages was the best I have seen in a long time. However gave it so so because I simply think some parts got boring. Just me?

This book was incredible and had you thinking how the main character was connected to Evelyn Hugo. THEN THE CONNECTION WAS BAT S***. Still thinking about it a day later

I normally am not into Crime Thrillers and have not gone outside my comfortable reading genre for a long time. Let me tell you though this book was incredible and constantly kept you second guessing "who dun it" with this amazing plot twist at the end I am going to recommend to all my friends

The Middlesteins: A Novel | Jami Attenberg
Mehso-so

I have wanted to read this for SO LONG and it was so hyped up. After finishing I felt like my life was disorganized and I had an intense desire to fix things (like my eating because the book focused so heavily on it). Robin was definitely the best character in the novel and I wish a little more of the spotlight was on her.
