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).
