The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: What book have you resisted reading despite being told it’s brilliant/excellent/right up your alley? And if you ended up reading it, was it just as brilliant/excellent/right up your alley as everyone said?
hat tip to Hegel Exercises

One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).
