What a storyteller, Rage (1977 my birth year 🎊) is classic King and I did not want to put this book down. But I had to often, because no one wants this crap in their head right before bed, especially if you‘re a vivid dreamer like me. Next up is Night Shift (1978)

So I assume this is an unpopular opinion, but I was not a fan of the tagged.

The book started off great but I felt it dragged on and then on some more.

I did finish it, but I will not continue the series.

March‘s #nywd22 is “The Only Good Indians” thanks @Readergrrl

monalyisha 😱 7mo
wordslinger42 I bailed on this one. It's definitely an unpopular opinion, but you're not alone! 7mo
Readergrrl @NikkiM5 I hope you like The Only Good Indians! It really stuck with me. Horror mixed with indigenous folklore and storytelling. I went to an author talk at the Mark Twain House here in CT and met the author, Stephen Graham Jones. His discussion of his writing inspiration and history was fascinating. Very cool! 7mo
NikkiM5 @Readergrrl I am very excited to read it. Thank you 😊 7mo

#bookspinbingo After reading a Sandman Volume, I was curious about an actual photo used in the comic. I found out from a friend it was the tagged author. I wanted to read his work after reading and hearing descriptions of the author. Chesterton is quoted often and had a dedication from Gaiman & Pratchett:

The authors would like to join the demon Crowley in dedicating this book to the memory of G.K. Chesterton, a man who knew what was going on

Readergrrl I read Sing, Unburied, Sing at the height of the protests in Minnesota after George Floyd‘s murder. The thoughts of the ghosts (theoretical or not) we encounter every day haunted me while I watched the news those weeks. Tonight I listen to the reports of the trial of the three remaining men involved and I can‘t help but think that the wheels of justice are tortuously slow. 8mo

My greatest achievement was recognizing my own potential. Greatest challenge was/is not making excuses for people and accepting them as they are.

I read some awesome books, but I have to pick Devolution.

In 2022, I want to deepen the awesome, new friendships I have made in 2021 and to grow my circle even more.

Reggie ❤️ Devolution❤️ Also, big yes to the second sentence in your first answer. I wish my family would learn from that. Not only for my benefit but for the family as a whole. Toooo deeeep lol. 9mo

Excellent book on how the mind works. If you enjoy self-help books on behavior and decision-making. Or if you‘re curious why others (and myself 😅) act ridiculous at times, I highly suggest the tagged. The Chimp Paradox is a lesson on why we act/react in certain ways, and why we don‘t have to.

“Managing your impulsive, emotional Chimp as an adult will be one of the biggest factors determining how successful you are in life.”

Nice, easy read about a time travel enabled coffee chair. I gave it a so-so but I intend to read the next book in the series. No characters to fall deep into care with, but I did like that it was a short and got to the point quickly.

This one was on the pick/so-so line. I went with pick because it was a fun read and I love IKEA, so I was yearning for an IKEA shopping spree. Though I will never look at an IKEA the same way again 😂

For some reason I was expecting zombies but it was a fun ghost story. The MC was like-able and even relatable and the character growth for Amy and Basil was fun to watch.
