Ughhh. This one is so slowww. I have too many other things on my reading list to continue reading something that doesn't get me hooked. I miss the writing of The DaVinci Code.

Oh my God George Saunders is fucking HILARIOUS. Apparently nightly writing essentials once included an entire pot of coffee and a whole bottle of Boone's Farm. ?

Also, he signed my book and drew a doodle he described as "a hand holding a peace symbol or something."

BEST EVER. ?? #fangirl #fingerscrossedmanbooker

This book was amazing! Of course it is inspired by Scooby-Doo, but I also found several Easter eggs from other nerd topics including Batman and The A-Team. Reminiscent of Stranger Things. Awesome!

This book was SO good but SO sad. Honestly I wasn't surprised (I am jaded) that this happened. I love David Grann! He reminds me of Erik Larson in that he writes non-fiction that reads like a novel. Read it!

EvieBee I just started this! I'm ready to be moved. 3y
HedgeWhitney You will be! My grandfather was 1/8 Cherokee (granted, not a member of the Osage tribe), but he would have been so pissed if he had known this was happening. (edited) 3y

LOVE LOVE LOVE this one. I love the time period of 1900-1920, and the mix of historical figures and fictional characters was amazing. The descriptions of settings, objects, etc. were very vivid. Read it! E.L. Doctorow is legit.👌🏻

Celine: A novel | Peter Heller
Bailedbailed

I HATE that I bailed on this one. I loved Celine as a character; she reminds me of one of my professors (who is in her mid-60s, has a Bachelor's in History, a Master's in Anthropology, and a Law degree. She also has tattoos, cusses in class, and wears kick-ass dangly earrings).

There was just too much stuff about Celine's life. This made the book drag. I was more interested in the mystery itself. 😕

Ok guys. I need your input. These books are $1.99 each today. Worth it or not?

Carol I've actually never read that series! 🙈 However, I know the books themselves are a decent length and perennial favorites at my library so that seems like a really good price for 3 books. 3y
HedgeWhitney @Carol That is good to know! Thank you! 😊 (edited) 3y
BookishFeminist Worth it! I love these books. One of my favorites from when I was a kid. 3y
