Re: November: what are you reading?

Lol, I didn't realize Always and Forever was the third in a trilogy until I got to the end and in the endnotes the author was like "this is the last time I'll write about Lara Jean" and I was like doh!! It was still good even though I hadn't read the first two. But I wish I'd known. Now I started Th...

Re: November: what are you reading?

Finished All We Ever Wanted a few days ago. I loved it, it was super gripping.

Now I'm reading Always and Forever, Lara Jean, which I'm also loving.

Re: November: what are you reading?

I finished "All Grown Up" (Jami Attenberg) and it was just OK. Wouldn't highly recommend it. It seemed to cover the same ground repeatedly.

Now I'm reading "All We Ever Wanted" by Emily Giffin. So far I'm really into it, but I haven't gotten super far yet.

Re: November: what are you reading?

I finally finished L.M. Montgomery (would not recommend reading the complete Anne collection in one go). I liked it, but the charm started wearing off after like 3 books. I don't know why I felt compelled to keep going.

Now I'm reading "All Grown Up" by Jami Attenberg. It's OK so far.

Re: November: what are you reading?

I'm *almost* done the complete works of LM Montgomery. Well, maybe not her complete works, but all her books about Avonlea and Anne, at least. Hopefully I'll finish it in the next few days and get to start something new!

Blush, was it "Talking to Strangers"? What was the TL;DR?

Re: October: What are you reading?

I'm still slogging through all the Anne books. I'm getting towards the end now. I don't really know why I'm keeping going. At this point it's more about her kids than her, she's just kinda lurking in the background. It's just, you get invested, I guess.

Re: August: what are you reading?

I finished Anne of Avonlea and now I'm on to Anne of the Island. It's really the "will they or won't they" of Anne and Gilbert that is keeping me going. I don't remember how it turns out.

Re: July: what are you reading?

I finished the Chinese detective novel I was reading and enjoyed it. It was a very neat way to set up the novel, it was basically like 6 or 7 independent stories, but all starring the same main character, and in reverse chronological order. "The Borrowed" by Chan Ho-Kei When we were in PEI we saw th...

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

I started reading "The Borrowed" by Chan Ho-Kei. It's translated from Chinese so the writing style isn't the best, but the plot grabbed me from the get-go. It's a detective novel.

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

I finished The Heart's Invisible Furies last night. OMG, so good. I liked how most of the time it was just a normal narrative book but then there were bits that were laugh-out-loud funny from time to time. Cyril II was cracking me up! (don't call him that!)

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.

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

I just finished The Wife by Alafair Burke. I spent like 10 minutes sitting here racking my brain for the title, thinking it was a Lionel Shriver book, and randomly googling character names and plot descriptions and coming up empty. I am so lazy I didn't want to walk the 10 feet to get my Kindle and ...

I started "Unbecoming" by Rebecca Scherm. So far I'm not super into it, but I'm hoping it will pick up.

Re: May, anyone?

I finished "This Will Hurt" last night. It's a chick-lit book about working in a corporate environment. It was okay. Wouldn't highly recommend.

Re: April: What are you reading?

I forget what I was reading before, but now I started The Woman at the Window by AJ Carr (I think?). I'm into it. It has kind of a Girl on the Train vibe but it's different enough.

Re: March - what are you reading?

I finished "The Heart Goes Last". I'd recommend it. It's kinda weird, but I liked it.

Now I'm reading "How Hard Could it Be?" by Alison Pearson. It's about a mom going through perimenopause. It's British. So far I'm enjoying it.

Re: March - what are you reading?

The weird semi-apocalyptic novel I'm reading is called "The Heart Goes Last" by Margaret Atwood. That's why it's weird, hehe. I am pretty into it now that it's gotten rolling.

Re: February! What are you reading?

So far it's medium weird. I'm barely started, less than 10% into it so far. I can't really tell if it will be good or bad at this point. But it's definitely weird.
