CrossTalk | Connie Willis

The 37th book I've read this year, and my absolute favorite. I couldn't love it more if I tried. And finally Connie Willis gets a decent cover!

Movie review: my sister loved it, I thought the book was better, and my dad was disappointed that there weren't more trains.

Last Days of Night | Graham Moore

Tell me a book is about 19th century patent law and watch how fast I go to sleep. Unless it's written by Graham Moore, in which case sign me up! Moore is so clearly a screenwriter (this book was optioned before its release date, even) and the story is the better for it.

Certainly for the first, and quite possibly last, time in my life, can I say that the seventh book in a series is the best one. Who does that? Jasper Fforde, that's who.

My absolute favorite book on the whole damn planet. (I own ALL THE BOOKS. If there is another one out there I'm missing please tell me!)

Doomsday Book | Connie Willis

I adore Connie Willis but honestly the woman has just the worst luck with book covers. To Say Nothing of the Dog is even worse. (Also my library copy was missing all the periods in the first five chapters? Like the entire punctuation mark was banished.)

VioletBramble @DarthBookworm Yes! The Bantam Books edition is missing all the periods. That was the first edition I read. So frustrating. I mentioned it in my book review. You're the only other person I've seen mention it. My hardcover had that horrible paper book cover. I got rid of it. The plain black is so much better. 2y
