2.17.2017 - I was on the waitlist for #Commonwealth by #AnnPatchett foreverrrr and now that I've finished it I don't really understand why. 🤷🏻♀️ Blended family/step sibling problems, ordinary life problems of privileged white Americans, deaths (tragic & normal from old age)... What was the point of this story? Was there a story? The oldest son dying from a 🐝sting seemed to be the main tragedy but it didn't feel realistic to me (I believed it in #MyGirl & can start crying now just thinking about Thomas J. & Vada). This book made me feel and think nothing but maybe an ordinary bland type of everyday boring melancholy. 😒👌🏽👮💊🐝💀🔫🌾 #friendshippowerreading But look, my #Mikkeller beer bottles + 🐨😇 are fun!
