Spent a bit of my Canada Day finishing this one. Another great, (albeit convoluted) Agatha Christie novel. Don‘t worry, the only nod to golf in this book is where the body was discovered.

It‘s rare that I enjoy contemporary thrillers. However, this was a 5/5 star pick for me! Fast paced and just the right amount of creep factor for a horror fan like myself.

Bonus: This was also my BOTM club pick for June!

When it first came out, I just wasn‘t ready for this book. Now that a number of years have gone by, the time felt right. This is an amazing read filled with anecdotes from the people who knew him and constructed by Laurie Woolever into a narrative that was much better than I even hoped.

Not sure if posting bookish memes is a faux pas on Litsy, but this was too good not to share

Ruthiella Litsy is all about bookish memes. But I don‘t get it? And I have read Dune. Please to explain… 3mo
Pruzy @Ruthiella There‘s a recent meme trend about girl and boy math, which tends to satirize what each tends to either spend their money or what statistics they tend to fudge (e.g. height). The joke here is that this fudged/subjectively justified “math” will if taken to its extreme lead to plans of galactic domination like the Bene Gesserits‘ plans 3mo
Ruthiella Got it! 😂 Thanks! I'll bet the Bene Gesserits started as a book club, completely harmless… 3mo

#Bookhaul for April 9th, 2024

Just one book today, The Familiar by Leigh Bardugo. I‘m a huge fan of her Alex Stern series (Ninth House, Hell Bent) so of course I will buy any other novel aimed towards adults she writes!

Has anyone else picked this one up today?

TrishB Yes 😁 Waterstones special edition. 3mo
Pruzy @TrishB Ooh what does it have that makes it a special edition? 3mo
EKonrad I just finished an arc. It was SO good!!! 3mo

Book haul for April 8, 2024!

Went in for Recursion by Blake Crouch for my friends‘ bookclub. Came out with a few other titles from the remaindered tables 😆.

I‘ve heard great things about everything George Saunders has written, so Liberation Day seems as good a place as any to start.

I‘m a Ian McEwan fan, but wasn‘t sure if Lessons warranted a day one purchase so I‘m getting to it now.

And I need to read more King classics so Carrie it is!

Hello to all of Litsy and my first post of 2024! I‘ve been on an Agatha Christie kick this year. What really amazes me is how well the books read to this day. They don‘t feel dated at all!

Of the Hercule Poirot books I have read, this one was one of the better ones! Maybe it‘s because it has people lounging on the beach, but the mystery is not bad either!

I aim to post more often this year!

Let‘s hear your favourite Hercule Poirot novels!

The_Book_Ninja Never read one. Maybe one day…. 3mo
Pruzy @The_Book_Ninja I was super hesitant, but was very pleasantly surprised once I started. No regrets! 3mo

Ruthiella Welcome back! I‘m a huge Christie fan. Evil Under the Sun is definitely a favorite. Also check out the adaptations starring David Suchet. They somewhat modify the plot from time to time but are otherwise quite faithful. 3mo
Addison_Reads I just really started reading Christie last year. I'm reading through the Miss Marple series right now. I'm currently on book 5. 3mo
Pruzy @Ruthiella I also really liked The Mystery of the Blue Train. The opening sequence was action packed! 3mo

Pruzy @kezzlou85 I‘ve always wanted to try the method of wrapping a book cover in brown packing paper to hide what I‘m reading 😆 3mo
kezzlou85 @Pruzy ooh that sounds fun. I saw someone who'd done that on the bus once. It gets you really intrigued as to what they might be reading. 3mo

kezzlou85 @Pruzy I know I was the same. I never did find out sadly 😥 3mo
Pruzy @kezzlou85 What are the rules about asking people what they are reading in public places 🤔 3mo
kezzlou85 @Pruzy I'm not sure. I've chatted to people before but that was when they'd put the book down. I think maybe rude to interrupt their reading I guess. 3mo

I admit it, I‘m a huge Grady Hendrix fan and this book is on par or better than the other books by him that I‘ve read.

I think this book perfectly encapsulates everything that is exciting about the slasher horror genre while mayyyybe looking at it with a slightly critical eye.

If you enjoy horror, you won‘t be disappointed!

The Daughter of Doctor Moreau | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I first read The Island of Doctor Moreau by HG Wells as an undergrad student. I really enjoyed the sci-fi classic and so was very intrigued by the premise of this book. What if Doctor Moreau had a daughter? What would her life be like? How would she perceive her father‘s experiments making human-like animals?

Silvia Moreno-Garcia does a good job exploring these questions while keeping the elements of fantasy that made Mexican Gothic great!

Elements of the supernatural combine with the liberal arts novel as the story follows Samantha, an MFA student whose nemeses are a clique of fellow MFA students dubbed the Bunnies for their childish ways.

However she can‘t say no when she gets invited to what she thinks will be a casual night of reading saucy poetry. That may sounds tame, but the novel gets weirder and more supernatural from there, and discovering that is part of the fun.

Sally Rooney‘s new novel lives up to the hype, an amazing, but understated (in typical Rooney fashion) story about four friends in their early 30s.

The most interesting parts were the emails written between two main characters of the novel, Alice and Eileen. It has me wishing for a non-fiction essay collection written by Rooney.

Read this if you are someone who values human connection!

An entertaining thriller about a game of wits between an old and young faculty member at a private school for boys.

What motivates the young teacher? Is it ambition, jealousy or something else?

This book had an amazing plot twist I did not see coming! I‘m excited to one day read the sequel.

Recommended for fans of campus novels and literary thrillers.

Leigh Bardugo was one of those authors I hadn‘t stopped hearing about since I joined Litsy, but I never had a chance to read.

That all changed when I heard about her campus/magic novel based on the secret societies of Yale. This book was much better than I expected, with some parallels to Harry Potter. Highly recommended!

Read this as an eBook and decided to try something different for the book pic! I hope it turned out.

I came to this first book in the Waterdeep series in the greater Forgotten Realms fantasy series based on the world of Dungeons & Dragons after a large chunk of time I spent last year playing a board game called The Lords of Waterdeep with a group of friends.

If you have read any Forgotten Realms in the past you know exactly what you get.

As you might have picked up from the discussion on other posts, Later was so so close to being a fun pulpy King novel. However, he made one big plot decision at the end which was unnecessarily heavy and didn‘t really fit with the presentation of the involved characters earlier in the novel.

Otherwise it was a fun read about a boy who can see dead people.

Let Me Tell You What I Mean was my first Joan Didion book. It was a decent starting point to understand the legend that is Didion! At the same time I left the book feeling like I need to read her more iconic works to fully get what she is all about.

One of the biggest books of the moment was only a “meh” read for me. I found the ending predictable and guessed it midway through the novel.

The idea about living other lives to see what you are missing is a resonant one, which is my guess as to why this book is doing so well on the bestsellers list. However, the story itself ends up being overly sentimental and cliche.

I‘m sure many people could have written the exact same book.

Short and to the point, this book examines the prominence of chess throughout history, especially in medieval times. Interestingly, the pieces and the moves ascribed to them have undergone a myriad of changes throughout history. I think this book will appeal to fans of 2020's breakout TV hit “The Queen's Gambit“.

Can anyone recommend any other good chess books?

The game is Civilization II, an extremely fun turn based strategy game where you control armies, develop technology and build world wonders in an attempt to win the game. I was hooked.

If you wonder what goes into designing such a game, this memoir will be a treat. It‘s a wild fast ride through game design!

As far as mystery/thriller novels go, this one was decent. It doesn‘t fall into the trap of too obviously and frustratingly withholding information (I‘m looking at you Woman In The Window). That said, the characters and settings are still relatively one dimensional.

I think if you are a fan of the genre you will probably be satisfied with this book.

I had never heard of Alice Marble, who was the best women‘s tennis player in the pre-Open era (~1930s and 1940s) until reading this excellently written biography.

The book encompasses her origins in tennis, her development and success a tennis player, and follows her through to her old age. It even touches on the many mysteries surrounding her involvement as an allied spy in WWII.

A fun tidbit was that she regularly visited Hearst Castle.

Well, I‘ve just finished Becoming Leonardo: An Exploded View of the Life of Leonardo Da Vinci by Mike Lankford. It was a great overview of Da Vinici‘s life, with some creative leaps to fill in the blanks (e.g what he could have been feeling at a certain time, etc.). It‘s an amazing book because it reads at a fast pace and dispels many of the myths we have as a society about Leonardo! Highly recommended!

This is the second novel by Wolitzer that I have read. When I purchased this book from a local used bookstore in pre-pandemic times, I had no idea that it was a young adult novel!

It is about a teenage girl who goes to a boarding school in Vermont for “fragile” youths where she takes a life changing class called “Special Topics in English” which, along with her fellow classmates, is life changing.

I will definitely be reading more Wolitzer!

Pruzy @Chab256 Yes, loosely in that the special topics in English class is studying her novel and poems, but it‘s more or less peripheral to the novel (aside from the horrid name of the novel, Belzhar, pronounced like bell jar the same way people annoyingly pronounce Target as tarjay, but I‘m willing to forgive that) 4y

I just finished the work of art that is this literary fiction novel.

It follows 41 year old Toby Fleishman who is recently separated from his wife Rachel and is learning his way around contemporary dating apps while trying to raise his two kids abandoned by Rachel at his apartment. Rachel disappears and Toby must hold his life together. Expect many pithy observations on life.

Reminiscent of Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff. Must read!
