Not as interesting as Ready Player One and certainly got bogged down in a few sections.

1. I have definitely been reading like crazy this year. I‘ve already double what I in the whole year last year! Not being in school and trying to distract myself from everything else going on has me tackling my TBR stack with abandon.
2. I hope that I will be able to continue at this pace once school starts up again.

I‘ll admit I only read this because my husband was but then I had so much fun figuring out which fairy tale each story was based on! I loved this book and can‘t wait to start the next one.

This was a reread. I have always loved this book- so much so that my daughters name comes from it. Mina. I‘ve always thought she was quite an intelligent and brave woman, ahead of her time. I had forgotten how it ended though. It‘d been years since I first read it. Still loved it all.

I really wanted to like this book. Her description are so beautiful it‘s easy to get lost in her words and phrasing but underneath there just wasn‘t anything there. There was no coherent plot. Too much back and forth between characters and stories. And in the end... meh....

readingjedi I felt that way about The Night Circus - all gorgeous style but ultimately, for me, no substance. 2y

I really wanted to like this book but the shop owner just seemed so negative and judgmental about his customers. I still enjoyed it though. It‘s nice to imagine daily life theu someone else‘s eyes.

I‘m happy to say 8 met all but my biking 2xs a week. I stayed within my limits on fast food and I‘ll be upping my book goal to 10 now. I didn‘t get to participate much in the walk-a-this today since we had my granddaughter‘s first bday party but I hope to make up some of that tomorrow.

I absolutely loved this book. This has to be my favorite Neil Gaiman book so far. It‘s the first book in a long time for me that I just couldn‘t put down. And since I don‘t have a picture to go with the book I‘ll just post two of the five best in my life :)

wanderinglynn Have you watched the adaptation from Amazon Prime? If you liked the book, I highly recommend watching the series. It‘s only 6 episodes. 3y
KathyWheeler I agree with @wanderinglynn ; you should definitely watch the show if you haven‘t already. 3y
Aims42 I agree with these ladies 1000% about watching the Amazon Prime adaptation @wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler 👍🏻👍🏻 (edited) 3y
Lova @wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler @Aims42 I just finished the series yesterday and loved it! It was so well done! Aziraphale and Crowley were dead on! I wish Neil Gaiman has done the script for American Gods like he did Good Omens. I enjoyed the book but I‘m so confused with the series. 3y
wanderinglynn Agree. I haven‘t liked the American Gods adaptation as much as I love Good Omens. 3y

There‘s a bit of chemistry in this that I just don‘t get but the failings of the Soviet Union and the hiding of essential information was dumbfounding. A very good book very well researched and written.

I enjoyed the first half of this book but but was disappointed in the monster at the end. But more than anything I was disgusted by the sex scene amongst 12 year olds near the end. What point is there in that? All the other characters have quirks that help them defeat the monster but hers is to let them all finish in her? WTF is that? They are 12!!! Sorry Steve but you lost my respect with this one.

I was completely prepared not to like this book. After all, my mom suggested it and she and I never read the same things. But I loved it. I liked the initial story, but it was the short stories after that I really loved. I wish there were more.

Woohoo! Finished this one. I love Gaiman‘s work and this was no exception. It was a little more difficult since I admit I had no knowledge of the Marvel characters other than the little bit I‘ve seen on movies. I had to keep asking my husband who people were and how they fit together. But it was an excellent story.
