Yayyyy book club!
It’s time for our second weekly check-in. If you need a refresher on how this virtual book club works, see here. (And feel free to jump in and join at any time!)
The Goldfinch has twelve (verrrrrry long) chapters, so this week we’ll discuss up through the end of chapter 6.
To check in, comment below and answer the following questions!
How far have you read?
How do you feel about the changes that have occurred since last week’s check in?
Speculation about where the novel is going?
I will start, but I’m going to be totally transparent here: I’ve barely read anything this week. My little angelic bundle of cuteness has been keeping me on my toes this week (literally- he wants to be held at all times) so it’s been all I can do to get my work done most days!
How far have you read? I’m on page 185, still in Chapter 4 (Morphine Lollipop), scene xvii.
How do you feel about the changes that have occurred since last week’s check in? I love how Theo has been spending a lot of time with Hobie, and I find it really interesting that Pippa has been snatched away right after something between Theo and her begins to build.
Speculation about where the novel is going? I just reached the part where Theo’s dad should up at the Barbours’ out of nowhere with his creepy girlfriend, and the anxiety is HIGH! I expect that things are about to get unpleasant for poor Theo.
Anything else? This book is already overdue but I’m not giving it back. :O
