Betty: A novel | Tiffany McDaniel

Pickpick

This is so very sad, tragic and maddening, I wept and felt all the feels on almost every page. A stunning novel that is at once poetic and grounded, beautiful and harrowing. Betty‘s Dads stories and ways of explaining the world are profoundly moving and all this set against the most vivid of landscapes. It was a true MasterClass in storytelling !
Note: trigger warnings for lots of things!

Mitch This was so fabulous. It broke my heart but I‘m so glad I read it! Thank you @Chelsea.Poole for directing me to this discovery. It will be on my top reads of the year list for 2022 I‘m sure. #newyearwhodis Another win for @monalyisha ! 2d

Mitch @TheBookHippie me too. I just had to step away so many times and take some air. I‘m not sure a book has reached me do deeply for a while 2d
Mitch @Chelsea.Poole absolutely- thank you SO much for getting this book into my hands. It‘s amazing 2d
TheBookHippie @Mitch Agreed. I read the ARC fyi and I remember telling the bookstore I read them for to buy several copies. 2d
ncsufoxes Definitely one of my favorites. Even though there was a lot of tough subject matter the writing was so beautiful. It‘s a story that stays with you long after you‘ve finished it. 2d
Karons1 I bought this book 📖 yesterday from Waterstones in market Harborough uk 🇬🇧 it was one of their picks of the month and on offer , Iv just joined a new village bookclub do you think 🤔 it would make a good group read for discussion ? 😀 2d
Mitch @Karons1 it is an amazing book - with lots to talk about. But I‘d be mindful of trigger warnings for sexual abuse. 2d

When I grow up I want to be an Elephant Librarian - book butler sounds fab too - but maybe I‘m not suited to The Savoy!

julesG Book butler at The Savoy 😍 I'd like that, but I'm not posh enough. 2d

IndoorDame Amazing! I totally want to be an elephant librarian but I‘m guessing I don‘t have the language skills I need. Maybe I could be a book butler someday 2d

Leannmarie Sounds like I would enjoy this if and only if was real books. I‘m really missing the feel of the cover and the smell of real ink. Well being a graphic designer I love feeling the ink flow through the pen rather that the hard to grab the energy from electronic instruments. 1d

Mitch @vivastory her writing is beautiful she clearly deeply loves the land and I can picture every scene so vividly. Which then makes it hard when it takes dark and harrowing turns ☹️ 6d

CuriousG A bunch of these are fun, but the ones I'm actually likely to do are the first one (cookbook) and the movie/TV series. I just read The Ghost Bride and am curious how the Netflix adaptation is. I love the idea of driving to a bookstore I've always wanted to visit, but they are all across the border and way more than 8 hours away, so I'll have to wait and see how border crossing rules change over the next bunch of months. 6d

Am I having my emotions manipulated, am I enjoying some 'love bombing' , am I using / hearing those thought terminating cliches that Montell describes as being the ultimate conversation closer?! Montell is a fabulously accessible writer - she describes things with wit, humanity and care. She's thoughtful and thought provoking and does to stay focused on the language and not sensational aspects of cultish behaviours. #newyearwhodis

Its amazing! Intricately plotted, a hugely immersive world and a cast of characters - both fringe and central - that just leap off the page. Intersecting time lines, arduous journeys, fantastical quests, special powers, epic battles and a host of intelligent cats - it has it all. With so so many fab books in the world - im not sure I'll read the next 13 in the series - each at 800+ pages.....but I might!

Thanks for the tag @Crazeedi

1- Holding our nerve and selling our home in the city we‘ve always lived in to relocate to the country! This years challenge has been living with a degree of anxiety about the fragility of everything that I‘m not used to.
2- Tagged - fab fab fab !
3- For our family to be healthy and happy and stress levels to spike less often than they have in recent years!

RaeLovesToRead Added the tagged to my shopping basket! Looks great. 3w
