This series has just been phenomenal and the season concluding book 5 brought a lot of disparate threads together. I always look forward to the textual shenanigans Danielewski gets up to and this lion in text format is just awesome!
1. Mozzarella sticks
2. 3% is only 0.75 of a book for me, and I had too many good reads this year to pick just one, so I‘ll go with top 3 (excluding rereads): The Bell Jar, The Handmaid‘s Tale, Redwood (TFv5)
3. Read at least 15 books and try to read two prompts for each of the #Booked2018 seasons.
4. Find a job
Another quote that made me do a double take...

I actually read a lot of great sequels this year, but the vast majority were rereads...and were Harry Potter, which is obviously fantastic, so I‘m going to exclude rereads for today to make this decision easier. 😂 So, I‘m going to say the best sequel I read this year was The Familiar volume 5: Redwood. I was so excited to read this one, and thankfully, it did not disappoint.
Not as good as October, but I‘m glad I read more than two books this month. I‘m so close to finishing The Handmaid‘s Tale, but I‘m tired, so I don‘t think I‘ll finish it tonight. I‘ve really enjoyed it so far though, so I think it and TFv5 are probably going to be my two #fallfavorites.

I love how this entire volume takes place over the span of, most likely, 12 hours. The biggest, most anticipated meeting between Xanther and Tian Li doesn‘t take up the most pages but all of our minor characters are directly effected and end up telling the story instead. The way this story reverberates through itself is masterful. Picture from preview of Volume 6.
My reason for going to the @strandbookstore was to pick up a signed copy of the new Familiar which I missed out on getting personalized because I was double booked seeing Matthew Weiner...
Included is a shot of one of the tote tables, most of which I covet 😍
Xanther drapes over little one, snugs her arms around him, like walls, of first returning a tiny corner of cashmere dryness over the even softer ripples of white fur ... hide everything but the tip of one white ear ... left like a tiny pyramid emerging from charred sand ... wondering if maybe Egyptian pyramids are just the tops of much, much bigger pyramids buried beneath the sand. #quotsynov17 #underground
The only book currently on my TBR for the month. Now that I‘ve finished my reread of Harry Potter and the other books in The Familiar, I‘m going back to reading based on my mood. My only plan is to hopefully read more than two books this month, what books those are I‘ll figure out later.

Ahhhhhh, excitement! 😃😃😃😃😃 I will forever be nervous about my preorders though. The first time I ever preorder a book on Amazon, I was incredibly excited, but when I opened the box...they‘d sent me a package of old looking batteries by mistake. 🙃 The book sucked too, so the whole experience was one giant letdown. 😂 I‘ve got my fingers crossed that that won‘t be the case this time. 🤞🏽
