The Sentence | Louise Erdrich

I picked up a copy of the tagged book at the library, but I am so invested after 100 pages my husband is buying me a copy.

Karisa Oh my gosh! I loved that book so much too! Tookie is awesome and the ghost and the way Erdrich captures the pandemic and makes her real self a character… 😍😍😍 20h

I finished this yesterday and holy shit. I had heard of this case on a podcast, possibly Least of These, but I was not prepared. What a horrific case. What a horrific woman.

Loved the writing, hated the subject. I actually steer away from serial killers despite loving true crime, but Israel Keyes is interesting.

What I expected, the story of a girl leaving a cult.

What I got, a story of a girl leaving her family.

I‘m almost certain that this was my favorite read this year. It's a memoir with a mystery tied in which completely engrossed me. I took my time reading this and I am glad I did.

Bitter is the New Black is one of my favorite memoirs, which is funny as Jen of the Bitter days was insufferable…yet hilarious and vulnerable. I actually reread it last year and found that it has held up. Unfortunately the humor from the first book is waning and while Jen is a lot more likable, The Tao of Martha is just a bit off. Oh, and TW: dog death.

Aims42 I loved “Bitter is the New Black”! I read one of her other books and it was just a “meh” for me and I didn‘t have much interest in reading her others. I‘m glad ‘Bitter‘ held up for you, especially after so many years!! 3mo

I was really struggling with reading this, so I switched over to the audio and it is such a better experience. I am definitely going to need something cheerful and fun after though.

An audio listen. It felt too rushed, almost like it was an outline rather then a full novel which is a shame because it could have been so much more.

I listened to the audio but I will probably go back and reread in print as I feel like I missed a bit. Really enjoyed it though.

This was a surprise for me. I think I accidentally stumbled on this awhile ago when looking for freebies on Amazon but didn‘t think much about it. However, I feel like I tore through this excited to hear of the adventures.

Blueberry This book sounds so much like the book Canoeing with the Cree that I wonder if it may have been an inspiration to the boys. My kind of read. 3mo
Prairiegirl_reading This reminds me of Paddle to the Amazon which I loved and loaned to someone who never returned it. 3mo

She‘s doing better now and is currently napping. I have been up all night between my daughter and not being able to get comfortable. I‘m going to try to nap though.

My tv attempted to kill me today. Fortunately it‘s just a nasty bump and abrasion that seemed a lot worse then it was.

Trying to read the tagged book but it‘s not holding my attention. I just want to watch some mindless tv but, the tv made out worse then I did.

One Day in December | Josie Silver

Listening to the audiobook and I gotta say, the woman who narrates Laurie‘s sections is getting me in all the feels.

The pacing however is excruciating. If I was reading it rather than listening I‘d have jumped ahead to get a peek…but I will try to resist.

sprainedbrain I felt the same way! I did this on audio, loved that narrator, and had to bump the speed up a bit. 😜 4mo

I don‘t think I have ever read a book with a more descriptive title. If you don‘t ugly cry at least once reading this…you are a monster. I think my favorite part is this takes place in Orange County, NY where I lived for a short time.

The Sanatorium | Sarah Pearse
Mehso-so

I picked this up thinking it was a non fiction book about one of the TB hospitals…and well, it was certainly not that! I enjoyed this despite the initial surprise,but it was just a bit too drawn out. It felt like it took forever to build up. Good writing but not anxious to read anything else by the author.

lynneamch I had to give it a so-so just because of the ending. Was really enjoying it until then. 5mo
Nikki_E Yeah the ending was not the best. 5mo
AvidReader25 I felt the same about this one. I think I would‘ve liked it more if it was nonfiction about the history of sanatoriums. 😆 5mo
