I am surprised that this didn’t show up on more lists. I enjoyed the book, but then read a few of the comments on the controversy about the book. I decided to enjoy the book for what it was, the way it was published, and not to let the critics sway my thoughts. It was an entertaining read, and that’s basically what I was looking for when I read it.
I have written about this book a few times, for various reasons. It is a wonderful book, and I agree with the PBS recommendation. A must-read!
Classics book club today was to discuss The Talented Mr. Ripley and to watch the movie. I couldn’t get the book read on time, so I messaged the group and told them I wouldn’t be coming. I got the message to come anyway, and watch the movie.
The movie was good. I’d seen it years ago, but didn’t remember much of it. Apparently it’s different from the book in several ways, but not having read it, I didn’t know.
I am currently debating reading the book or checking it off as not having to read it. I’ll decide one of these days.
I have started Tattooist of Auschwitz because I keep hearing about it. It’ll be for my group challenge on goodreads.
I still have to finish Fat Girl, but I have only an hour or so left in it.
I need to work on Winter People for sci fi bookclub in a couple of weeks.
I am always reading multiple books at a time. Here are the books I plan on finishing this week:
The Perfect Couple I plan on finishing this for both of my group challenges this week.
Educated I plan on reading this for my Vegas book club. We all hated the previous book, so we changed mid month.
Google Your Husband Back I am reading this one just for fun, but I am sure it will fit into my group challenges somewhere.
I haven’t bounced back from my Vegas trip. On Wednesday, I was supposed to go to book club to discuss America for Beginners, by Leah Franqui, but I just couldn’t get myself to go. I was also supposed to go to PE class, but had zero energy. I ended up napping for 2 hours, then getting up to eat dinner, and went right back to sleep.
I managed to get through work, but nothing else managed to happen. I have my list that I’m working my way through. Slowly.
I think I am going to try to finish some halfway finished books in the month of January 2019.
Their eyes were watching God Started but not finished for book club over the summer.
