  1. I finished Save Me the Plums today and loved it. Reichl is far and away my favorite food writer and I'm now sorry I didn't read Gourmet when it was in business. I was planning on starting Cilka's Journey tonight (which would have been appropriate as it is Holocaust Remembrance Day), but then I discovered that it is a follow-up to The Tattooist of Auschwitz, which I have not read but will do soon when my book club does it. So, instead I think I'm going to start American Royals instead and revisit Cilka's Journey in a few months.
  2. My book club decided to read this this year...I had already planned to skip that meeting. Everything I've heard about this book from bloggers I respect say pretty much what you said here and that is a big NOPE for me.
  3. Finished You Were There Too and, unpopular opinion according to the reviews I've read, I found it schmaltzy and eye-rolly. I mean, it wasn't bad, it just was kind of ridiculous. Now I am finally reading Save Me the Plums by Ruth Reichl. I adore her writing!
  4. Speculation on how are two favorite octogenarians will ride off into the sunset. Keep in mind that this is for speculation, not spoilers. Talk about what you THINK will happen, not what you know will happen.
  5. Yes, several years ago she had surgery to remove nodes on her vocal chords, which resulted in damage. I'm not sure if the surgery was actually botched or if she just fell into that unfortunate group of people who get the "risks" and not the cure. I personally have not heard her sing, besides a few lines at a Tony Awards ceremony, when it was very clear that her voice was gone. I love Julie Andrews and I think that she would have been game for this, but I'm not sure I would want to hear her if her voice was shot. I'd rather remember her voice when it was amazing.
  6. I finished The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, which was good, but not perfect. The overall story was good--and I spent a fair amount of time googling the Kentucky Blue People--but some of the secondary plots either felt underdeveloped or unresolved. I'd still recommend it to people who want a historical fiction novel. I DNF'd Alexa Martin's new romance (Blitzed) and am now reading You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley. So far, it is a pleasant, but light, read...but I'm not yet convinced that the whole premise will deliver. We shall see!

  15. Now that we have a full forum for this show, we will using episode threads instead of a single thread, starting with season 2 (Season 1 discussion can remain in the season 1 thread). As Netflix doesn't release their episode titles and synopses until after they have dropped the season, I will create threads with generic titles for season 2. At some point on 1/17/2020 (the day season 2 drops), I'll go back in add in the correct titles and synopses. A few reminders: Primetimer policies apply! If you are new to the site, or just need a refresher, please take a moment to check them out. Also, discussion in the episode threads should be on the episode in questions. While you can refer back to previous episodes (as long as the bulk of your post is about the topic episode), please do not refer to things that happen in later episodes. This will be considered spoiling and your post will be removed. If you have any questions, please send me a private message. Thanks! -OtterMommy
