The boundary between the real world and the imaginary one has grown obscure. -Haruki Murakami

Mehso-so

Here is the thing about this book. It sells itself as being hilariously funny- and it just isn't, at least not to me, and man would a little humor have helped out a lot. Much more often, the author was bored and distanced from what she was experiencing on her exploration, which is a weird thing to write a memoir about. I never really understood what she was looking for. It was solidly meh beginning to end.

#BFCR3 week 2 check-in: Not a great week for me, but that's ok. My time outdoors was drastically decreased due to a high number of working lunches, so I'm going to block off 1 day a week to have lunch outside, by myself. And I will try not to procrastinate my yoga until the end of the week. I'm still currently reading the tagged book, and it's fine. I'm taking on a new task at work that will lend itself to audiobooks, so I'm queuing a bunch up.

nelehelen Oooh the drink limit is a good one! 3mo
sudi I'm sorry the week wasn't too good for you. But the drink limit is a good idea. And besides we always have next week to try. And i'm going to try the Adrienne video you suggested yesterday. 😊 3mo

#BFCR3 week 1 update: This was one of the toughest weeks of my adult life, not going to lie. I'm pretty ok with the fact that I went 1 beer over my goal for the week- it could have been so much worse. I'm really happy with the yoga though! Sadly I didn't get much reading in. Next week can only get better.

This book was so good. Even if you're not a baseball fan, I think this story about college age kids (and a college president) might still appeal to you. I can see why it was so lauded when it came out, and I can't believe it took me so long to get to it. As it's been on my shelf for at least 5 years, this definitely counts towards my #MountTBR2019 challenge (15/36 for Mt Vancouver)!

Bright Lines: A Novel | Tanwi Nandini Islam

I loved this story about a family from Bangladesh who lives in Brooklyn. It had everything- love, loss, happy times, bad times. The descriptions of Brooklyn and Bangladesh are artful, and the characters are wonderful. The culture was previously not well known to me, and I felt like I got a truthful look into the complexities of that experience. Anwar, Charu, El, Maya and all of the other characters will stay with me for a long time.

Not as funny as I was expecting, and not as loathsome as I was fearing. I actually really enjoyed this, though my one complaint is the way that it ended, which utilized one of my biggest pet peeves in modern lit. Though, to be fair, it was handled better than other books have done.

Magic for Beginners | Kelly Link

Pickpick

Kelly Link is not only a gifted short story writer, she is great at putting together collections. There was only one story I didn't really enjoy, and that's probably because it was the closest to fairy tales (not my favorite genre). The rest of the stories were fab, with relatable characters who experienced crazy things (zombies and aliens and all sorts of other sci-fi craziness abounds, but in a very easy-to-swallow way).

Magic for Beginners | Kelly Link

Jeremy prays to all the dark gods that he never receives the gift of knowing what people are thinking. Its a dark road and it ends up with you trapped on late night television in front of an invisible audience of depressed insomniacs wearing hats made out tinfoil and they all want to pay you nine-ninety-nine per minute to hear you describe in minute, terrible detail what their deceased cat is thinking about, right now. What kind of future is that?

callielafleur I know I missed the apostrophe in it's, but I was one character short of being able to include the ending question mark, which I thought was more important to include. Oh, the sacrifices we make. 4mo

Jeremy's mother is an orphan. Jeremy's father claims that she was raised by feral silent-film stars, and it's true, she looks like a heroine out of a Harold Lloyd movie. She has an appealingly disheveled look to her, as if someone has either just tied or untied her from a set of train tracks.

This novella tells the story of a girl named Creeper who wants to gain passage on an airship out of the New Orleans, and has the secret that could pay her way. But Creeper is not the only one who dictates her moves- she also has the Goddess Oya whispering in her mind, and Oya has a different plan for her.

P. Djèlí Clark's writing is wonderful, and I can't wait to read more from him.

This is horrifying. I hope nobody here will lose their ebooks as a result of this.

MoniqueReads305 This is why I refuse to purchase ebooks at full price. You don't own them, you purchase a right to use them. Basically you are renting them. 5mo
callielafleur @MoniqueReads305 I don't do many ebooks, but they're all through B&N. Now I'm curious what would happen to them if/when B&N goes under... 5mo
melissanorr I tell people the same thing all the time @MoniqueReads305 and they usually get a blank look on their face! I really want all the ebooks in Amazon, Apple, etc to have a "license" button rather than a "buy" button so it is clear to people that this could happen. 5mo
mrp27 Precisely why I'm not a huge fan of ereaders. I have a Nook and have been assured by B&N that I "own" them but I don't buy it. Nook can go out at anytime and then I loose all my books. Thankfully most are freebies or were purchased for $1.99, $2.99. I'm of the mind that if B&N were to go under, so would my books. 5mo
MoniqueReads305 @melissanorr @callielafleur Most of my ebooks are through BN because I preferred Nook or Kindle... But one of my fears with BN is it going under. I could only hope that if that happens they sell it to Kobo. 5mo

A really interesting look at lady serial killers in history. Most were pre-20th century, and some were as early as the 16th century. My only negative is that I wish more had been more recent, but according to the conclusion section, the author made that choice with lots of intention, so all the more power to her.

A melancholy little book about a man's life on the Canadian border in the early to mid 1900's. He works for a lumber company and suffers a family tragedy that changes his life. The prose in it was quite lovely. This was read on the Literary Disco podcast years and years ago, and I've had it on my TBR ever since. Glad I finally got to it. 4⭐

Caraval | Stephanie Garber

Mehso-so

This was pretty good, though it made me think of the Night Circus, which to me is more well written. I found the main character frustrating and had to keep reminding myself that she was a kid who had been raised in an abuse-filled house, largely in solitude, which is why she seemed so naive. But the environment of the book was interesting, and the game aspect was also interesting. I don't know that I feel compelled to continue the series.

mandi1082 I liked caraval but reading legendary I was so over the series. I felt like I was reading this same think over again with book 2. 5mo

If this book wasn't so short, I definitely would have DNF'd early. The first ~30 pages were so hard to get into, and I really only started liking it about ~90 pages in. Felt very Hemingway/Fitzgerald, if those dudes had been around in early 2000's Spain. But after awhile, the MC's struggles because more understandable, and his clear Imposter Syndrome was more sympathetic. This is a so-so for me, a solid 3⭐. If it were longer, it would be a Pan.

Man I loved this book. A woman in her late 20's lives in a world where she believes the war has already started, and she is surrounded by pretenders- real vegans, fake vegans, people planting bombs in locations with no message, and her parents, the super liberal, left of hippie extremists, who dream of their daughter being gay and in charge of a terrorist organization. It's such a snarky view of modern liberalism, and I found it really funny.

I really enjoyed this story about the death of Skippy (no spoilers, since it's the title of the thing), a student at a boys' boarding school in Ireland, and how it affected everyone around him. The characters were really well drawn, which is how I stayed invested in this tome (661 pages!)- while the plot did drag on at times, I cared enough about all the characters, as highly flawed as they were, to see it through to the end. 4.5⭐

I've had this on my TBR for years, thanks to Literary Disco, and it was worth the wait. A woman in her 20s reads Treasure Island and becomes obsessed, wanting to live her life by the core ideas found therein. This includes buying a very expensive parrot with whom she doesn't get along and who suffers an untimely end, so TW for that. There's friend drama, relationship drama, family drama. It's so darkly funny, I just loved it. 4.5⭐

I really enjoyed this retelling of Cinderella, and maybe even more so because I knew nothing about it before I started listening. The story is fast-paced, and the characters were interesting. It definitely felt YA, if not younger, which isn't a bad thing. I'm grateful to the #Booked2019 crew for including Fairytale Retelling as a winter category, I definitely wouldn't have read this otherwise.
