Re: August: what are you reading?

Re: August: what are you reading?

I finished Close Enough to Touch. It was sweet and predictable. Then I read Flowers for Algernon, which I'd always dreaded reading because I thought it would be so sad. Well, it is. But it's fantastic. Read it if you haven't. Now I have Take Me With You by Catherine Ryan Hyde. I've never read one of...

Re: August: what are you reading?

You just pay for the days you're delayed? At my library you don't pay, but then you're "grounded". You can't borrow for a while.

Re: August: what are you reading?

Finished The Disappearance of Stephanie Mailer! :yay I liked it. It was a little tiring at first, with dozens of characters, jumps in time and points of view, but after I got used to the format I was hooked.

Re: July: what are you reading?

I'm still reading The Disappearance of Stephanie Mailer :lol It has way too many characters and way too many seemingly unrelated story lines, so it's taking forever for things to start making sense, but I'm enjoying it. But it feels more like I'm watching a TV show than reading a book. I'm at 78% no...

Re: July: what are you reading?

I read An American Marriage because it was due back at the library. The beginning is good (first 100 pages or so), then it turns melodramatic and slow. Glad I didn't pay.

Now I'm back to The Disappearance of Stephanie Mailer.

Re: July: what are you reading?

Ha! I felt exactly the opposite, Blush! Loved the post-election stuff.

Finished The Flatshare. It was cute and entertaining, but not as adorable as I was hoping for.

Started The Disappearance of Stephanie Mailer by Joel Dïcker. I'm only 8% in, but I think I'll like it.

Re: July: what are you reading?

Finished Summer of '69. Didn't like it in the end. What I loved at the beginning was the setting. The plot was super dull. I wonder if there are ghost writers involved. This woman is releasing TWO new books a year and this felt like a different writer from The Perfect Couple, which was excellent. No...

Re: June: what are you reading? And...

Almost finishing Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple. It started out ok, but went downhill in the second half, but it's short and I'd passed the point of no return. She tries so hard to be funny, but to me she ends up just weird. This is my second book by this author (I also read and hated the b...

Re: June: what are you reading? And...

Yay, glad you guys loved those books! I loved them both. Specially Furies. I loved the structure of the book, the every 7 years thing. It was really a 6-star book for me, I loved it so much. Finished Amy Byler. It was cute, but forgettable. Then I read The Red Notebook by Antoine Laurain. It was a v...

Re: June: what are you reading? And...

I loved Station Eleven! I hope you like it. I remember Rowan mentioning Kincardine to you when she read it :lol I gave up on The Lie. I couldn't care how it would end. I'm so sick of these formulaic psychological thrillers. I read The Hate U Give because of the hype. When a book has consistent 5-sta...

Re: June: what are you reading? And...

I reread The Rosie Project to refresh my memory on some points. Turns out I remembered VERY little of it. I should stop buying books and just reread everything I own. My bad memory will come in handy now that Niko's unemployed :lol Then I started The Lie by C. L. Taylor. It's one of those typical ps...

Re: June: what are you reading? And...

I read more of it last night and I'm into it now. The one thing I don't like is all the Irish lingo. I don't know what a lot of it means. I'd read about 30% when I decided to return the English version to Amazon and get the Portuguese version. I figured anything that might have been lost in the tra...

Yeah, The Rosie Result is new. Came out this year. I thought you might be thinking of the previous one (the effect). You're very generous in your ratings! :lol

I think I read the Rosie Result and thought it was...fine.
It's not on your goodreads! Maybe you mean the second one, The Rosie Effect? But you gave it 4 stars.

... where the heck is Rowan? Have we lost yet another member? :( I finished The Rosie Result. It was ok. The first half was kinda boring, which I wasn't expecting at all. The second half was better, but still too different from the first 2 books for my taste. Don is way too functional, he seems to h...

Re: May, anyone?

Couldn't get into Coming Home. It seemed up my alley, but it's 1000 pages long and half of them were descriptions. I'd probably love an abridged version!

Started Don Tillman #3 (The Rosie Result? I think that's it).
