#BeginsWith @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

I bought this book for a dollar at a thrift store and I forgot I had it. It's time to move it up on my reading list. It sounds really good.

Leniverse I bought the whole trilogy at a garage sale because the covers and titles called out to me. My edition has a shiny blue carnival mask on it and looks very mysterious. 😄 I still haven't read them because the print is so tiny. The Spouse read them though (and he gets eyestrain headaches really easily, so I have no excuse). He says they are great and I really should read them. 16h

Rabbits | Terry Miles
post image
Pickpick

One of the best books I've ever read in this genre. So many books, games, and movies I love pop up in this story. 💚

On the surface it seems like a book about a secretive video game, but soon other dimensions are introduced, mysterious people keep popping in and out of the story, and the corruption and conspiracy grow with each new chapter. Rabbits is a definite thrill ride and I loved every second.

vivastory 🤘👏 I'm glad you liked it! 2d
Addison_Reads @vivastory It's a brilliant piece of literature. I'm surprised it hasn't received more praise. Your comparison to Blake Crouch and Ernest Cline books was very accurate and exactly how I felt while reading it. 2d
vivastory I'm really surprised it hasn't received more buzz too. It was the only book I've read since RP1 to give me similar vibes. 2d

Black Science Vol. 1 | Rick Remender

What a crazy read!

This starts right in the middle of action without really giving a backstory about what's happening. As things unfold though it starts to come together.

I really love sci-fi that focuses on man's hubris. With science just because something can be done really doesn't mean that it should and the characters in this story definitely demonstrate that.

An explosive story with great graphics and I'm excited to see what happens next.

I love the cover, but I just felt meh about the book.

It's a dark modern fairytale about three sisters who disappeared when they were young, but return a month later. Since their return something is different about them.

This had some interesting parts, but everything felt glossed over. Some of the body gore seemed used just for shock and awe.

If you enjoy YA and want a dark gothic tale this isn't bad, just don't expect too much from it.

Finding herself alone, unsure of her future, Honey, like her mother before her turns to books for answers. Familiar characters return, and we also meet new ones, some who want to help Honey on her journey and others who will do anything to keep her from succeeding.

I had to sit with this for a bit to really decide how I felt.

The main character annoyed me and I had a hard time even caring about her pain. I do appreciate the author addressing chronic pain and how doctors often dismiss a person's complaints. Also, the clever connection to Shakespeare saved a lot of this story for me.

I'm giving this a pick for its creativity, and I enjoyed most of it, but I didn't love it like I had hoped.

Bookboss I just picked this up from the library. 6d
Addison_Reads @Bookboss my only suggestion would be to not try and make sense of things as you read otherwise the surrealism might become overwhelming. The story has a certain flow of madness if you just let yourself ride the waves. 5d

Before this book I had only read one other Erdrich book. Now I want to read them all. 💚

Tookie was such a fun character. I loved her view on things, her no nonsense attitude, and her general love of literature. I feel like years from now people will read this because of its commentary on the pandemic, George Floyd's murder, and even the election, although she does avoid too much political talk.

vivastory Great review. I'm looking forward to reading this one. I think it's impossible for a MN author to write a book set in their homestate during '20 and not in some way address Floyd's murder. Minneapolis is filled with so many amazing bookstores that somehow despite living there for 4 years I never made it to Birchbark Books! 6d

I binge read the first 6 in this series again last week so I would be ready for this one when my library hold came in.

This book is a bit of a different set up than previous ones. Normally we're following the Wayward kids through a door to some magical place. In this book though we see what happens when there aren't doors to travel through.

Such a heartfelt story full of great characters. I loved it. 💚

This book destroyed me. ? But I absolutely loved it and there is hope amongst all the heartbreak.

As a story of grief, the "magical" aspects were such an intriguing way to describe a boy and his mother as they navigate life without the man they love. Sometimes our minds and our hearts create unreal scenarios in order to help us deal with pain, to give us a safe place to heal. I feel this book did a beautiful job of showing that side of grief.

It has that old school horror feel to the writing but McCammon also gives us some sci-fi here as well with the "creature" being an alien who has come to Earth to capture another alien. Set this all in Inferno, a small Texas town full of interesting characters, and you have an action packed propulsive story full of gore and jump scares.

I disliked Fates and Furies, but after seeing so many great reviews about this book I decided to try. I've discovered though that I'm just not a fan of Lauren Groff.

While the prose is beautiful, and Marie is a strong character, the lack of plot made this tedious to finish. I did like how this started and ended, but the rest of the book felt repetitive and bored me.

Luckily the narrator did a wonderful job reading it or I might have bailed.

I can understand why others loved this book and also why it has won so many awards and accolades.

The writing is exceptional and raw, the characters complex and interesting, and there's a subtle beauty to the story. I just felt disconnected.

After the impressive, but emotionally damaging nonfiction books I read I needed something in my "comfort" genre.

This creepy ghost story of a haunted town is a low pick for me. While I loved how the story was unveiled between the present-day documentary and the past journals and letters, there were some open ended aspects that left me a little unfulfilled.

The descriptions of the town were very atmospheric and scary and really make the story.

Another excellent nonfiction to end the year with. This book covered so much about the Sackler family that I never knew. I was sickened by the actions of this family and the limitless bounds of their greed. However, Patrick Radden Keefe delivers a riveting story with perfectly researched details that I simply couldn't stop reading.
