During the last few days of #JoyousJanuary, I'll be reading the picks for #Roll100. I should make good progress on Sunday when I do my official unplug (no tv, computer and phone). @Andrew65 @PuddleJumper
I originally wanted to read this book after watching the Netflix show, but quickly learned they‘re almost nothing alike. Still, it was a fascinating and often times humorous glimpse of the perceived lives of numerous peoples. Taking most of it with a large grain of salt (Polo is not the most trustworthy narrator) I was grateful for the slew of footnotes that explained/corrected his stories.
One of my #Roll100 books for January (number 24).
This was just what I needed to get my head off all the stress at the moment. This was so much fun to listen to, one of the best audio books I've heard so far. The story is great as well. One can read it as a witty fantasy story OR one can as well interpret it as an overcoming of two races that were taught to hate each other for centuries. However you like it. Don't miss out on looking at the awesome illustrations by Yelchin-you might be surprised.
4.3⭐️ this has got to be one of the most disturbing/triggering books I have ever read. It was good though, and it was terrifying, and it-made me sick. this is not one of those books and I would recommend to just anybody, especially since it deals with kids. If you plan to read it, proceed with caution. This was also one of my #roll100
My first #roll100 read complete ✅
My roll list is the first 100 books on my TBR list and I‘ve wanted to read this one since I was a teenager. I loved me some Sharon Creech! Definitely felt some wanderlust while reading the MC‘s experiences at a Swiss boarding school, but I only consider this a soft pick. Some elements of the story felt underdeveloped and left me wondering about a lot of loose ends
I'm not always a fan of Clare's work for some reason, but this one was a fun read. I haven't read all of this series, but I knew enough from reading the Mortal Instruments books to follow along. The action and characterization news fun and held my interest, and the cocky dialogue never disappointed. #Fantasy #LGBTQ
My first finish for #Roll100! I might not get to my second roll this month because I'm waiting a library hold.
