The Nickel Boys: A Novel | Colson Whitehead
post image

My son bought me this mug!!!
I just finished The Nickel Boys for b&n book club this week. I did not see the twist in the last part coming at all! It was so well done. I‘m glad I read it. It covers so many themes in its little 210 pages and I am excited to hear what people thought and the things they picked up on that I, super oblivious as ever, completely missed. Anyone else read it yet?

SW-T Nice mug! Haven‘t read the book yet, but it‘s on my TBR. 4mo
Yeah_I_Read @SW-T it was good! 4mo
readordierachel I just finished it. He's a fantastic writer. A story that will stay with me. 4mo

This was good. A bit of an Sarah J Maas knockoff but it‘s enough of its own story to make that not extra annoying.
Now I don‘t know what to read 😫
Any recommendations?? Looking for anything smart fun different cool not ridiculous space-opera or fantasy 🤞🏽

This was a good story even though the beginning was super ya fantasy trope-y and the romance was a bit sappy.

A Memory Called Empire | Arkady Martine

THIS IS NO BEACH READ! It absolutely requires your full attention, but the payoff is worth the effort. An awesome political space opera with more opera than space and vaguely reminiscent of ancient Asian Empire epics. If you have the time, energy, and patience to commit to this book I highly recommend it.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Yeah_I_Read I know, you‘d think no matter their party it‘d be Russia Commissions, Election Protection Policies across the board. But nope, one whole group is just acting like it‘s still didn‘t happen or wasn‘t important because it benefited them...and how shortsighted is that, because it won‘t always benefit you or the best of your party. The hypocrisy is surreal. 7mo
Yeah_I_Read @Riveted_Reader_Melissa yes! Exactly. All I can think of is how powerful the Clinton campaign must have been, as in I‘m sure they had top of the line people, equipment, security etc. so if it can happen to them, and other prestigious democratic institutions, how can people think it couldn‘t happen to anyone or any campaign. Also the fact that the Russians played on already divisive issues in our culture and promoted hate and intolerance should be (edited) 7mo

I really loved this series. Record of a Space Born Few was my least favorite of the three but still very good. It makes me wonder about where we will end up in ten generations. Hopefully something that resembles the Exodan Fleet. I‘m officially a fan of this author and will read everything she writes. ❤️

I really enjoyed this! If you liked Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell, or if you like the idea of JS&MrN but found the footnotes tedious, pick this up!!! Very Jane Austen-ish, a bit slow to start, and I still haven‘t decided if I truly like Prunella, but overall a good read! 4 🌟‘s

Yeah_I_Read @MartinaLove I read flamecaster first not realizing the series were connected.
