This one I got in my secret box book of the month club here in Brazil, it is a king of puzzle where Jose Saramago is a character and it is also about an author that is writing Saramago's biography. It is a crazy book but it was so good!

September Stephen King re-read.
This one was my first King novel around 30 years ago and it was really good to revisit.

I enjoyed the read, but think it is just an average King book. But I do think his average books are better than a lot of books I read, so...

That one was a disappointment.
It started ok but suddenly things changed and the ending was weak.

Another Stephen King reread, but this one was a surprise! I didn't like it the first time I read (I love the movie), but this time around I really enjoyed it! Maybe the translation wasn't good and since this time I read an copy in English it was better experience?

JanuarieTimewalker13 I have to try this one. Duma Key was really good! 4mo

I love Jemisin and I got this short story collection as a gift from a friend that I introduced to her Broken earth collection (I made my friend read it before she sent it to me and she put post it's all over the book with her insights and there is so much love in this copy!).

Man, this book!
Halfway through it I noticed that I knew that story and found out that I've watched the movie with my favorite doctor and Kate Winslet.
This beautiful edition is from a Brazilian book of the month club.

I was curious because I love Stephen King and Joe Hill, I really enjoyed Owen King's novel and I never read anything by her. It was interesting and good enough to make me want to read others, but just that...

I had so much fun reading this one, but since I finished I can only think that Data (from star Trek) is a Sexbot (according to Murderbot's definition of one) and I can't stop laughing!

I hated this book. It starts as a badly written The handmaid's tale alternate universe fan fiction and it just gets worst.
Awful ending!

I always heard awlfull things about this book and had a vague memory of the movie being so boring (but it had Daniel Day-Lewis in It) that I never found the courage to read this.
I was wrong.

I read this for a blind box book club.
I didn't like it very much, but almost everyone loved it.
It's about revolution and exile, with some chapters of non fiction (the best parts of the book and I hate non fiction).

Not a great book, kind of entertaining, a funny character that throws a lot of science at your face, just like the Martian.
Got annoyed with all the jokes about the female main character being a out her sex life.
