Native Son | Richard A Wright

This book made a lot of really good points regarding race and class and for that it will always be an important novel in the canon, but in my opinion it drips with misogyny and I am not a fan of misogynist literature.

American Pastoral | Philip Roth

Mehso-so

The audio quality of this audiobook was incredibly inconsistent. All in all, this book was ok. I really like the way Roth writes, and I appreciate that it's not a story of "oh this man was so upset because his life was perfect" like so many other books I've read that were written by men of the same Era.

This book is a misogyny hell scape.

It's a very strange book but I really liked it so it's the high end of so so, it's mostly just not my usual vibe.

The Book of M: A Novel | Peng Shepherd

This book was absolutely amazing. I tag it for the #readingwomenchallenge and it was amazing. Shepherd is a brilliant and compelling writer and I can't recommend this book enough. A solid mystery, love story, fantastic tale.

This book was ok. It wasn't nearly half so good as the Secret History, but it's not a bad story. It just feels too slow and purposeless for the first 3/4 of the book for me to really love it.

Emma | Jane Austin
post image

I didn't want to read this book, but I needed to get it off my TBR pile because it's part of the #1001bookstoreadbeforeyoudie list. It's my last favorite Austen, and I honestly feel like Clueless did it better. Emma is a snob. Actually everyone in this book is kind of a snob. 2 stars.

I felt like this book was pretty repetitive. It was really great and interesting, but after chapter 10 it was just very much "OK, I get it now, do you have anything else to say?"

As a huge fan of Song of Achilles, I knew I had to read this book. It was wonderful, and definitely a great read, but if you're expecting something as good as Song of Achilles you will be sorely disappointed. The story isn't as compelling and the language is nowhere near as beautiful, but it's still well worth your time to read.

Retta is a queen. This book was hilarious, she's a fabulous reader, and frankly, if she writes more books, I will get them all.

The book is genuinely lit. Such a good read, the audiobook version is just wonderful.

Mansfield Park | Jane Austen

It's no Northanger Abbey, and I feel like the end feels a bit hand wavey. Like SUDDENLY! HE LOVES HER! But it's a good story.

I love this book so, so much. I read most of it in undergrad, but I restated it and was so quickly reminded of how absolutely gorgeous this book is. I am in love with it.

Wind/Pinball: Two novels | Haruki Murakami

Murakami's first book was a great read. It was a little different from his later work, but it was so great.the magical realism is especially good in Pinball, and the whole meandering story is worth it for the one scene.

A little predictable, but a pretty decent time if you can get into westerns. Giod but not great. The story is interesting but the wiring does not wow. Not great for quotes.

I enjoyed this book, but it was not the greatest I've ever read. I guess I'm still a little upset about the dog scene.

It took me many years to come back and finish this novel, but it is Gothic in the extreme, and such a good, good read. Love it!

I listened to the audiobook for this novel and I have to admit that I was not at all impressed. Some of the language was nice, but for the most part I felt like I read a book that didn't really deliver the promise I had come to expect.

I loved this book so much, but it's definitely a book you will need to sit down and think about for a little while before you can move on to another one. Lol.
