I enjoyed this one. Put a little more detail in the #CBBC journal. I love the whole “think outside“ the box aspect of it as well.

Anyway, It will be one I would strongly consider picking up the 2nd book. I do like these characters. (especially the doggies!)

My daddy would have been 70 years old today. I have been missing him more now that I have moved up north. I wish I could pick his brain re: snow, ice, winter, um... wish we can bitch/watch the Packers together. If he were around, he would understand my frustration with the amount of bullshit I deal with daily! People can be ugh! Miss you! Forever, I am your daddy's little girl.

This was so beautifully drawn. Seriously loved it. I like mythology, so any take on that can be pretty interesting, so this did not disappoint. I had initially picked it up because the bookseller saw I was eying it and told me .. girl get it! Ha. She was right! Thank you --- whoever you were.

So I downloaded this book on Audible for my next #AudioCommute . At the time, I didn't think we would hit a bookstore in time to purchase one and didn't want to “wait,“ but then we went to a bookstore. Ha! This will be a hybrid #Audio / Print type of reading. Audible clocks it at 24 hours. But I am told you get “carried away“ in it, so ... it might be very good to use it while doing chores and stuff.

So, It is more of a between pick and so-so for me. I didn't hate it. But I did feel like it took a long time for it to get to the point that I wanted to / or cared about what was going to be the ending. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending. So, that is always a plus. (Did this as a #AudioCommute) book

This was a cute book, it wasn't the type of book I would have picked up (if not for my husband). I am not a romance book person. But I like the twist of having a murder//serial obsessed person fall in love. Because that would be me when I first met my husband. Sizing him up on scales of the ability of him being a murderer. (Talk about trust - ha)

Also, so true about the Dish Soap!

So, I enjoyed this little romp through the scary satirical life we live in. The baby-cages thing hits particularly close to home (I am from South Texas, where these “camps“ are located).

Anyway, I would say it's an exciting read (and would make an excellent little coffee table book.

ElizaMarie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So, I listened to the first three chapters. I couldn't get into it. The way they communicate (husband and wife), just seemed so unnatural. People don't talk like this. Maybe this is just not the “time“ for me to listen to this book.“ I am not DNF; I am just gonna gracefully bow out and then maybe pick it up again later. Would love to hear your thoughts, though. 1mo

I listened to this one (rather quickly) I want to say it was 5-6 hours long (and my drive to and from work is around 30ish minutes). Anyway, I had listened to the Audio (which was read by the author). It was so good! So heavy, so sad, so good, though! I am not usually a memoir type of person, but I am so glad to have picked this one up!

This one had some mixed reviews, but I found it rather entertaining. I didn't see the twists to expect. Also, having to rely mostly on #Audio lately, its been good to get lost in a book with a good narrator.

Absolutely loved this book! I have been looking at the way I communicate lately. Like what types of language I use when I speak with others and/or about myself and my surroundings. Also, looking at how words I choose provides others with all sorts of opinions about me.

Been a bit hard, though, coming from a Spanish-speaking family.

I hate to give this a “so-so“ but it really was between that and a “pick“. I love Ito. I love his artwork. I love his style. This book, though... I don't know.... it didn't have the same oomph his other works have. It is my least favorite of the stuff I've read of him. And if anyone wanted to jump into ITO, please do NOT start with this one.

I just couldn't stop listening to this (which is good for my husband because I did more #chores than normally, so I had an “excuse“). So yeah, I just love these characters.
