callielafleur I used the family tree at the front of my copy a lot when I read this. Very difficult to keep track of people otherwise! 6mo
audraelizabeth This is on my tbr list because of the read harder challenge but I'm planning on listening to it. 6mo

Finally read the VERY FIRST book referenced in Gilmore Girls🤘 The writing was great, and some passages were utterly sublime! I didn‘t find the underlying serious themes to be quite convincing, but still, a fine piece of Beat lit!

I got this classic from Project Gutenberg on a whim, and it turned out to be an easy read! Really enjoyed the constant sparring between idealism and cynicism.

Qpri @britt_brooke @mcipher @GondorGirl @Paperback.Propensity I was sooo excited! My regular one is just a plain card. But I went to a neighboring town today to get another one, they offered me a choice of 8 designs by local artists :) Considering how many creative people are walking around amongst us, there‘s no reason for anything (not even a library card) to be plain and drab 😊😊😊 9mo

Oryx and Crake | Margaret Atwood
post image

The quality of writing was excellent, and it was a fun read. But for me, Oryx and Crake didn‘t quite make it into the dystopian league.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I've noticed that people often feel that this book is lacking something or feels unfinished somehow & a lot of them don't realise that it's actually part of trilogy. 10mo
Qpri Understandable. I do know it‘s a trilogy. Not sure if I would read the other 2 books right away. But this was a fun read. 10mo

I had mixed feelings about this book. I absolutely loved the way language and music were woven into the story! But I thought some parts were lower in depth of composition, and merely pandering to readers seeking quick entertainment...

As a scientist, I could relate to a lot of things the author talks about. But anyone can be a scientist if they‘re curious and willing to experiment a little. From the book: ‘All you need is a question. There, you‘re a scientist now!‘ :)

Another great dystopian novel! It was very disturbing, and I couldn‘t help but shudder to think of how quickly our rights could vanish, if we don‘t choose representatives with the right principles.

I was completely lost in the beautiful Cornish countryside descriptions in this book, except for that constant nagging feeling that something twisted was afoot. Charming but eerie, beautiful but not without a dark side...
