The Sentence | Louise Erdrich
post image
Mehso-so

Although I wasn‘t enjoying The Sentence I persevered with it for a long time because I like the way Erdrich writes and the themes she engages with. But the plot in this novel takes ages to get anywhere, and there is too much banter and circumstantial detail, including the contents of meals and passing exchanges with bookshop customers. Maybe it‘s intended as a character study of the narrator Tookie, and I just didn‘t find Tookie that interesting.

Read4life I just read this one, too. Your review is spot on for how I felt. 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @Read4life Thanks. I just couldn‘t get engaged it and I actually did it as an audiobook. 1mo
Daisey I‘m almost halfway through and am feeling a bit the same. I‘m just not sure where we‘re going at this point. 1mo

Graciouswarriorprincess @Daisey. Yes! @Skygoddess1 I had my speed at 1.75 and it still felt like it dragged along. 1mo
CaroPi I try to read it but around page 80 or 100 I just was not into it and DNF the book. Happy to see I am not alone 1mo

I love how descriptive the author was in setting up different scenes, you could really visually the story. A slow burn and parts were thrilling but still left unanswered questions at the end.

No annual girl‘s weekend to the Savannah Book Festival this year as the hotel rates are too high. However, I came up with a solution. A girl‘s weekend to the @obx and visiting bookstores there along with a weekend of books , bookish crafts, great food and friends! I can‘t wait to return to the beach!

JamieArc Oohhh. I love OBX. Be sure to post pictures! 1mo
TheQuietQuill There is a wonderful bookstore in Corolla OBX called “Island Bookstore.” We go every year when we vacation there, and behind the shop is the cutest smoothie shop! It‘s really close to the Currituck lighthouse too. Have fun! 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @TheQuietQuill I visit there every time I go to the OBX. It‘s on my list for that weekend. 😊 1mo

All My Rage | Sabaa Tahir
post image
Pickpick

All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir is a beautiful and meaningful story about Salahudin and Noor. They are young high school students who are facing unthinkable circumstances. Though they often make the wrong choices, they must always deal with the consequences. They are sympathetic characters who captured my heart & had me rooting for them. This is a novel that teaches empathy & understanding with being a bit difficult to read at first but well worth it.

Paris Daillencourt is About to Crumble by Alexis Hall is a Queer Contemporary that focuses on anxiety and the impact it can have on a person's relationship with themselves and those close to them. I absolutely adored the MC/Narrator , Paris Daillencourt. While this is the second book in the Winner Bakes All series it can be fully read as a stand alone. This is not a romcom so don't go in expecting a romance heavy story. Book 4/100.

Mad Honey | Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Finney Boylan
post image
Pickpick

Reading Mad Honey was a learning experience and I'm glad I went on the journey. The characters are well-developed, the dialog is good, and the plot held my interest. I've read some criticisms of the use of different speakers and the way the speakers go backwards and forwards in time. It's hard to see how anyone could read this book and not come away with more empathy for people's lives that you may not understand. Book 3/100 of the year.

My first book of 2023. This cute rom-com is a must read for fans of The Great British Baking Show. I loved the banter between the two main characters, Jack and Meg. I also enjoyed how their stories meshed well. I throughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend.
