Lincoln in the Bardo is a masterpiece and I will hear no different
I was entertained, definitely a page turner but I’m a much bigger fan of his short stories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Starting the newly released Sylvia Plath novella Mary Ventura and the Ninth Kingdom next. I also picked up Love in the Time of Cholera and Heart of Darkness at a street festival today. Never read either of them before.
10th of December is my favorite story collection I’ve ever read I think, Civilwarland was amazing too. Gotta track down the others
Just blew through The Silent Patient. Loved that book.
If you like psychological thrillers check it out
The next two blow it out of the water.
I’m not sure if my imagination has ever been fucked with so hard.
it's a great journey into space physics but the next 2 are where the tempo just ups and takes off!
just ordered it from Amazon!
Just started The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle last night
I didn’t like the three body problem enough to want to read the next two but everyone keeps talking about them
That seems like a pretty interesting book. Youll have to let me know what you think about it when youre done.
What are you currently reading?
Im back to The Girl On The Train. Im taking my time with it til The Sentence is Death comes out.
Finished the Plath novella. Super short but cool allegory.
My next book will be The Folded Leaf by William Maxwell. Never heard of this author but first few pages in and im digging the voice a lot which is the most important element for me
about halfway through Jayson Greene's Once More We Saw Stars. heart-shattering book, but really beautifully written.
I finised up The Girl on The Train. It was good, alittle slow at times. I wouldnt say it was great by any means,but it was definitely a decent read.
Anne Frank: the real story of the girl behind the diary
I’m thinking of ordering this one. It includes all three versions of the diary as well as her short stories, letters, drawings, the start of a novel and more. Not sure if I can take it though.
The Priory of the Orange Tree is $2 on Kindle and I don't know much about it but I got it
The Lightning Thief is also $2 and I got that too
I need to read the many books I already have
thanks for the heads up, been looking at the priory of the orange tree. $2 is a steal
I'd get those but I have such a large backlog that I'm getting pretty overwhelmed!
Same, and I've been reading the same book for 2 months now
Picked this one up again because something pulled me away from it the first time. It’s very good.
The Sentence is Death showed up on my IPad today! I can’t wait to get home from work and start reading it.
When it comes to fantasy books, I lately have been trying to prioritise books written by up-and-coming women, which has led me to some true gems. All of them are very different, with very different settings and magic systems, but all of them are so fresh and well written.
1. The Swords and Fire series by Melissa Caruso. The third and final instalment just came out. I'm waiting for the Audiobook though.
The Tethered Mage (Swords and Fire, #1) by Melissa Caruso
2. Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri. The next instalment in the series is coming out later this year.
