This was a good book to listen during my commute and when doing chores. Some language is out dated but it does keep with the times of the book.

I read this book and I did not realize it was by the author of Freshwater. I read Freshwater when it was first released and I wish I had read Pet first. While the books are not about the same characters it helped me understand Freshwater a bit better.

Meh. I was expecting more of this book to be about the author and her hawk. Not T. H.White.

I started this book yesterday at 9:00pm and finished it this morning at 4:00am. I have not read a book overnight in a long time. This one was amazing.

LiteraryinLawrence I rarely do it but it‘s such a great feeling when you just can‘t put a book down and have to finish it! 2w

Whoever wrote the blurb on the back of this book did not read the book. This was amazing. Parts of it (the bit with the wig) made me laugh out loud. Parts of it made my heart bleed tears.

This was listed as a YA, but for me it read more as a middle grade book. Not bad not good, but if this becomes a series I won‘t be reading the next one. The characters did not stick with me.

iread2much I plan on taking mine to mail boxes close to where I live. With the new rules about getting rid of blue boxes that don‘t get a certain amount of mail, I figure I can spread out the mail love and try to keep more of the blue boxes alive 😊 good luck! It will be a fun challenge 2mo

This was for my IRL book club. It was an ok book a bit more academic than usual. That is not whet got it the so-so rating. Part of the title is From Pavlov to Social Media. Social media only had half a page in the book.

Hi all! This took a while to come up with but here are my top choices. #LMPBC #GroupD @BeckyWithTheGoodBooks @carlthecattt @AmandaBorchers

BeckyWithTheGoodBooks None of these are in a genre I typically read, so I am intrigued! I am most drawn to The Bone Mother. 😀 3mo
AmandaBorchers I‘m intrigued by Lagoon!! I‘m excited to break out of my comfort zone with one of these! 3mo
carlthecattt This isn‘t something I usually read, I think The Bone Mother is the most intriguing ☺️ 3mo

Pogue This is why I thought about favorite authors. Find someone new to read or something different. Let me see if my local bookstore can get Bone Mother if not we will have to go for another book. 3mo
