I absolutely loved, loved, LOVED this book! This is such a well-written and enjoyable series. All the books have been wonderful reads, but this one in particular was nearly impossible to put down. I read for hours and hours and would have been happy with the ending if this were the end of the series, but there‘s another book coming out in May! I will definitely be picking it up.

Borne: A Novel | Jeff VanderMeer

Pickpick

This is the most bizarre book I‘ve read in a long time. It has left me breathless, and anxious to read everything Jeff VanderMeer has ever written.

I picked it up on a Barnes & Noble run with my sister. I was captivated by the beautiful cover, and when I opened it and found that a three-story tall bear was a central antagonist, what can I say? Take my money, Barnes & Noble!

Such a captivating story. I recommend it to my fellow weirdos.

This one has been languishing on my tbr stack for a long time. I finally read it and just loved it! Reading about Kaala and the Swift River pack was so interesting. I will definitely be picking up the other books in the series.

From the back of the book: Fed up with early bedtimes and over-cooked veggies, a group of feisty seniors set out to regain their independence, improve their lot, and stand up for seniors everywhere. Their solution? White-collar crime.

Who among us can resist a description like that? #currentlyreading

RadicalReader @SassyGirlReading could very well be the sequel to the Little Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly 6y

Mehso-so

Eh. I read this book in one day. Not because it was so amazing that I couldn't put it down, but more because I kept waiting for something to happen. The build up is painfully slow, and while some of the writing was mesmerizing, I just can't say that it was a truly enjoyable read. Great promise, but disappointing delivery.

JDHawkins Agreed. 6y

"Poor girls. The world fattens them on the promise of love. How badly they need it, and how little most of them will ever get. The treacled pop songs, the dresses described in the catalogs with words like "sunset" and "Paris." Then the dreams are taken away with such violent force; the hand wrenching the buttons of the jeans, nobody looking at the man shouting at his girlfriend on the bus."
