Loved spending some time in the Arthurian tales. Author dealt well with the legend of the shift from loyal sister to Morgan the witch. Morgan is a great character in this series. Can‘t wait to read the next one.

Life‘s too short to be voluntarily annoyed and hate read this any longer.
I loathe this MC.
There should be a sub genre of ‘menopause‘ books- insufferable privileged women spending money to find solutions to their life.
Definitely a lot to discuss here.

TrishB @Ruthiella I think it‘s because I don‘t think the boundaries are real. Woman has mid life epiphany needs a lot of sex. 🤷‍♀️ lots to discuss! 1w
TrishB @squirrelbrain I think I have a lot to say! Probably none of it relevant 😁 1w

Megabooks I‘d still love to hear your thoughts. Seriously! I love menopause reads, but I can definitely see how they‘re marmite. 1w
BarbaraBB Lots to discuss. I am not a fan of menopause books per se but I liked this one much more than Sandwich, which I know you preferred. I do think J won‘t read the new Lombardo soon, having enough of menopause books for now! 1w
Hooked_on_books I thought the menopause bit had a lot of potential and could be interesting, if the book would stop focusing on sex for two seconds and act like there‘s more to life than that. I don‘t blame you at all for bailing. I probably should have. 1w

TrishB @Megabooks I definitely have plenty of thoughts! 1w
TrishB @BarbaraBB I think I liked Sandwich as there was some humility, normality and humour! But still a bit privileged. I didn‘t find any of those in this one! Like you I may give them a miss for a bit. 1w
TrishB @Hooked_on_books agree. It seems the only ‘solution‘ to the menopause is to throw off the shackles of life and have lots of sex. Hard enough getting the menopause taken seriously as it is. 1w
TrishB @Oryx @DGRachel @TheBookHippie it definitely makes for strong opinions 😁 1w
TrishB @Susanita 👍🏻 1w
Caroline2 “Voluntarily annoyed” love that expression Trish!! Yep, life is defo too short to spend with books that wind you up!! ? for me, the real privilege came later when she‘s all blasé about her annual gynaecologist appt who then just did a hormone test and got her on hrt like it was nothing. Cor, can you imagine that in this country!???? 4d
TrishB @Caroline2 getting the app would be one battle, being taken seriously would be a step too far! Fantasy. 4d

So there‘s a dream walking/life after death thread and there‘s a how we fix the world/change democratic systems and plan for the future thread.
Both are interesting - but the alternative visions for the future and the tense general election (written before last week‘s in U.K.) narrative were great.
Digital oversight of our every move and thought is scary shit.

It‘s a pick because I finished it. I wanted to love it but didn‘t really. Felt the same about Debbie Harry‘s - too cool for school comes across. It‘s a very quick run through the band, every other famous person around at the time and drug taking.
There‘s a sad prologue- which I felt was the first time we saw Chris the man, not the rock group member.

Cathythoughts I don‘t like reading about rock bands 🤔 🤷🏼‍♀️ but Debbie Harry played here recently with Sting … and I would love to have seen her , but didn‘t make it. 1mo

This is a very dark, roller coaster of a thriller.

After a day out to Bosworth last week, just a bit of a R3 story. Enjoyable, if a bit romanticised.

LeahBergen I‘d like to go to Bosworth!! 3mo
TrishB @LeahBergen it was fab! We were the only 4 on the tour. The guide was great and we got to do all the re-enactments 😁 3mo
