The Night Before | Wendy Walker
post image
Pickpick

It's told from the perspectives of Laura and her sister Rosie thru two overlapping timelines. Throughout the story you get the idea that Laura is your typical angry woman who got into some trouble as a young girl and is trying to make a change in her life after a really bad breakup.Nothing is what it seems in this story and some of the characters aren't as crazy as you think and some are at a level of crazy that you don't quite see coming.

This was such a beautifully written story with so many aspects to it.
Great book to read during my bday lunch yesterday.

I haven‘t read very many books in an epistolary format. Once I started reading, I immediately understood that it needed to be written like this. Ms. Wood weaves a fictional account that makes it hard to believe it‘s fiction based on fact. The writing style, the way the story flowed, and Emma(one of the nurses) documenting the lives of these girls and the people around them drew me in and kept me reading and wanting to know more.

This was my first book by this author and I am glad that it was his memoir. He is open and raw about his family and his experiences growing up. His style of writing is beautiful and profound even with this being a translated work. He also has a dry sense of humor that is sprinkled throughout. I recommend this book.

She was good-natured after a few drinks and, as there was always an open bottle of champagne in her fridge, she was always in a good mood. “I‘m a little bit tipsy” was her favorite catchphrase.
🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂
This is almost too relatable.

My @bookofthemonth box came today! Since I couldn‘t get into what I was reading earlier, I‘m going to take a stab at this. I‘m a sucker for a literary fiction. I feel like this one is going to pull my heartstrings and I‘m okay with that.

Well, I definitely planned to read way more than this but unfortunately I have been dealing with some unexpected health concerns. I hope to have everything figured out so that I can participate in my buddy reads next month. I miss reading but I‘m glad to have this community and all my other book loving communities. It‘s sucks not being able to read. Maybe today I will get some reading in since I‘m not in that much pain.

Nute I hope that your health recovers quickly. It is a challenge when we can‘t do the things that we enjoy. Take Care! 13mo
ReaderthenBlogger @Nute thank you so much! I am doing much better. Back to reading too. 13mo

“When someone leaves, remembering the joy is far more painful than thinking about the misery.”

This quote holds so much truth. And there were so many others throughout this story. I took my time with this novel partly by choice and partly by emotional force. I could relate to this story more than I ever expected to. Review coming soon!

I brought her home from the shelter 3 yrs ago knowing she was a senior. I knew I wouldn‘t have a lifetime with her but I didn‘t think I‘d lose her this soon. I loved her right away and so did my boys. We loved her as if we‘d had her from a puppy. We are going to miss Brownee so much.

Calypso | David Sedaris
post image
Pickpick

I‘m a bit late to the David Sedaris game. However, out of the four books I‘ve read by him, this one is my favorite. While it holds true to his non intentional comedic approach, there is a much more here especially in the stories about his family. This books shows so much depth to them as a unit and singularly at the same time. I laughed, like always, but this time I may have shed a tear or two. Looking forward to more of his writing.

Wow, what a story. You just never know what your child is going thru. Sometimes what you feel is best isn‘t always best. You most definitely have to be in the right mind frame to read and digest this one. I‘m glad I read it though. Can‘t wait to read this author‘s second novel.

ReaderthenBlogger @Samplergal what did you pick? I can‘t decide, lol. 1y
Samplergal I picked The Air you Breathe. I didn‘t get accepted for the ARC and it is supposed to be rather “epic”. The others don‘t pique my interest except for The Dinner List which I feel I will be able to get at the library easily. 1y
See All 6 Comments
ReaderthenBlogger @Samplergal I‘m thinking that one and Good bye Paris. I don‘t really want another thriller right now. And I agree on the library thing about The Dinner List. 1y
Jess7 Yep! I struggled too, but I posted my choices earlier. I picked Sweet Little Lies bc it was a thriller, and added The Dinner List bc it‘s supposed to be character driven and then Goodbye Paris bc (1) it references a Eleanor Oliphant which I loved and (2) Paris is my favorite city! I almost picked up the other mystery but decided to wait and see 1y
ReaderthenBlogger @Jess7 I finally picked Goodbye Paris and The Air You Breathe. Now I have to fight the anticipation of waiting for my box, lol. 1y

The Favorite Sister | Jessica Knoll

We have 5 women all successful in their own ways. As w/ anything, you get enough estrogen in the room, add different personalities, attitudes and beliefs. Drama will follow. Each woman will do what it takes to protect her secrets, assets, and her spot on the show. This novel shows the level of viciousness and pettiness that women will go to including destroying whoever their enemy is at the time of taping.
