Researching potential books for #readingeurope2020 #belarus

Daisey A few of us are reading War‘s Unwomanly Face right now. The style is interesting, in short snippets from many interviews, and it‘s heart wrenching. I think it‘s going to be a great choice for this challenge. I‘m also interested in the author‘s book about Chernobyl. 20h

The Sworn Virgin: A Novel | Kristopher Dukes
post image
Pickpick

This is a reluctant pick. Superb writing. Complex plot. Brilliant subject based on true circumstances: women left with little choice but to become men to own their own lives but under severe penalty for breaking that oath. Extremely unlikeable characters, who never fulfill expectations for a complex plot and brilliant subject matter. They just remain irritating characters without redemption. #readingeurope2020 #albania #litsyatoz #letterS

#wondrouswednesday

1) buyer, collector, hoarder (are you picking up on a theme?) 😊

2) not a favorite, but really the only time and place I am assured a time to read every day is in bed when my insomnia wakes me up

3) tagged book was the fave so far, but not a 5-star read; Pont Neuf was the “worst” but only because I think it was overrated—a 3-star read

4) @GingerAntics @mdm139 @Slajaunie @Curly_Caffeinated_Reader @Scochrane26 😘

A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
post image

A bit late for #twofortuesday:

1) the tagged book is my most recent 5-star read. The book must be well written, hard to put down, and elicits an emotional response from me (except anger for being poorly written or edited). The tagged book made me LOL, a shocking surprise and the writing was superb!

2) No because I rarely reread books and normally only do so if I loved it in the first place. But have changed ratings after thinking about a book.

The Sworn Virgin: A Novel | Kristopher Dukes

I am struggling with this book! It‘s well written but the main character is so immature and making poor decisions one after the other I just want to scream. Perhaps the author‘s making a point of the damage a parent does by spoiling a child and I‘m truly hoping it‘s a device to show how much the character grows at some point in the story. Arg! I need this book for #readingeurope2020 #albania ! And the premise of the story sounds so good.

tdrosebud I'm on the waitlist for this book, also to cover Albania for #readingeurope2020. I hope the struggles lessen for you. 1w

Texreader @GingerAntics These sorts of storms scared the $&@/! out of me when I was a kid. My grandpa was picked up and dropped a ways away when he was little by a tornado. His sheer terror of storms rubbed off on me. Fortunately I outgrew that!! But it seems to me the Dallas area always gets these things far worse than us down here! I guess being closer to tornado alley? Maybe you should consider a move... 😉 1w
GingerAntics Actually, we are. lol I‘m not sure. When we first moved, I would have said Ft. Worth got hit worse. We moved just a few weeks before the Bank One building was destroyed by a tornado in Ft. Worth. I think we‘re getting more of them than Ft. Worth now. I was terrified of storms when I was a kid, too, even when we first moved here. I don‘t know if I just ended up desensitised or what. 1w
WhatWouldJaneDo @Texreader yes, just heavy rain and a lot of thunder and lightening at my house this time. Especially after Dallas got pounded so many times last year these storms really freak me out! 1w

This is an ok somewhat short story about a journalist (who tangentially was a cohort of Martha Gellhorn) & her relationship with one of 2 Harvard friends serving in WWII. The narrator annoyed me early on; overdone. The conclusion, while emotional, wasn‘t quite the bombshell I was led to believe. #readingeurope2020 #Luxembourg. Will also work for #France and #Belgium

So sad but true. Even the 15-year-old main character in this book gets the insane way immigrants seeking asylum are treated. (Assuming they are allowed in the country at all.)

GingerAntics Totally agree with this. I still think you should be able to take the licensing exam and go to work. The untapped talent of our immigrants is just a shame. 1w
Texreader @GingerAntics couldn‘t agree more 1w

Texreader @GingerAntics Yes I read about it at dinner and thought my post was prescient. I am so disappointed. First, it‘s inhumane and second, it makes poor economic sense. I‘m really sad to hear about your students. Good to hear, though, they have a supporter in you. 1w
GingerAntics It‘s sad, because the only thing they really need to study is the language. Having them sit through English composition classes and classes they‘ve already taken is just a waste of time, but someone‘s making money off of them (which is probably why it will never change). 1w

I like thrillers because they are action-packed; I‘m not turning pages out of duty but out of excitement. This prequel to the Black Flagged books hits the mark. It is definitely propulsive (a word I‘ve been anxious to use in a review). It‘s a rough history of a black ops sniper‘s recruitment and service in Serbia. The lack of detail is bothersome because we know it will be important in upcoming books, where I hope these details will be revealed.

TheAromaofBooks Ooo propulsive, I can see why you've been wanting to use it, as that is an excellent word! 1w

This is the 1st in a series by an author who (writing from real-life experience) is a 1st-rate thriller writer. Who is good? Who is bad? The murderer(s) are bad (unless it‘s for the good of the country?) but there‘s at least one FBI agent who is despicable. A lot of ambiguity, a ton of action. A great read. Looking forward to seeing where the series goes.

Still reading and loving Dickens. I had to read this last Christmas story in his trilogy. I feel Dickens was so ahead of his time. Like this asinine quote, from a most disagreeable character, about women. I anticipate that in not too short of time, Dickens will make sure this nasty person gets his comeuppance.

Texreader @TrishB @butterfinger @rachelo @eggs @Susanita @thearomaofbooks @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @readordierachel Thank you for the Litsy love! Today I got results of first tests I‘ve been undergoing and we have a preliminary diagnosis. More tests over the next few weeks but the good news is if this diagnosis is correct and there aren‘t more serious issues (biopsy is scheduled), it can be cured! I‘m so excited! ❤️ 2w
