The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
The Library at Mount Char - Scott Hawkins

I was tempted to abandon this book after the first chapter, but I didn’t want to pick another book for the square I was reading it for. A lot of animals and a lot of people die in this book, and I don’t feel that the payoff of the story is worth the suffering. There’s also rape, and insane levels of child abuse. What is almost worse is the way that the children come to devalue their own lives as a result. I was rooting against the main character for most of it. In retrospect, I’m not even sure the story makes sense when you start to think it through. I mean, I don’t actually see why all the cruelty was supposedly necessary given the ending.

 

I debated between one and two stars but I’ve rated books that I’ve enjoyed more at two stars, so…

TBR Friday Library Reads: May 29, 2020

Last Friday in May! I hope you all are safe where you are right now. I haven't wanted to talk too much about what is happening in the US right now, but I am angry and sad. I am also sadly not shocked. Books have been helping and also having this place to go to and to interact with. 


Stay well.

Reading progress update: I've read 56%.
The Library at Mount Char - Scott Hawkins

I'm really not crazy about this book but I was amused by these lines:

“Ow! I’m not a two-by-four!”

 

“Don’t be such a baby. I don’t have time to suture.”

Review: Tales of Beedle The Bard
The Tales Of Beedle The Bard (Hogwarts Library #3) - J.K. Rowling

This was a fun quick listen. I very much enjoyed the stories (fables). The narration was well done. This was a series of stories with the addition of notes from Albus Dumbledore and footnotes for non-magic readers.
