The Apollo Murders | Colonel Chris Hadfield

Mehso-so

A bit on the dry side. The reason I love Andy Weir so much is that he combines science and interesting character with humor and emotions. This book was missing that character spark for me.

janeycanuck Isn‘t his signature cool, though? 4h

With the release of this sequel, it reminded me that I needed to go back and read the Circle. Well worth it and a little bit disconcerting.

Bookworm struggles: Stripping the bed after falling asleep reading and throwing your book into the washer with the sheets. Also washers do not like it when you throw books into them. They tend to get loud. Luckily it made noise right at the beginning of the cycle so all is well. #thestruggleisreal

Cortg Yikes! I've sent my phone through a wash cycle before. Ugh. Is it still readable?

After "The House in the Cerulean Sea" I didn't know how much better TJ Klune could get. And then I read this. And I knew. Have the tissues ready. If "Cerulean Sea" was a hug, then "Whispering Door" is the full relationship. This is going to be a book hangover for awhile.

If you would be so kind, please check out Brad Meltzer‘s Facebook or Instagram page. A school district in Pennsylvania has banned a slew of books about POC and LGBTQ people and he has a link on the story to donate these books to Little Free Libraries in that town. I donated 4 titles. Best $20 I have spent this week. I hosted Brad when he launched “I am Neil Armstrong” and I have recommended this series countless times.
