Wanderers: A Novel | Chuck Wendig

Saga of the book I‘m reading. There are so many chapters that go into detail on what a pandemic is. I‘m like, come on, I know this already. It was published early 2019, it makes me wonder if the editor would have cut some chapters out because later into the covid pandemic EVERYONE knows so much now. There‘s been a lot of slow chapters, but at 70% listen through things got very interesting!

I tried posting a review after getting scammed and my review was rejected. I went back to try again and at least someone was able to post a review to prevent others from the same!

Just started this audiobook. When I first started I knew I recognize the narrator‘s voice but I couldn‘t place it. Then I realized he also narrated songbirds and snakes by Suzanne Collins. I like his narration style.

This has been both a hard listen and a hopeful one. While his personal life seems messy his life of helping people in recovery once he found sobriety isn‘t. I‘m only halfway, but I am glad I picked this one on a whim. I don‘t know a lot about the actor and his story is a captivating one.

For some reason usps has delivered my BOTM to the exact same wrong house the past two boxes. We don‘t even live on the same street! We have the big communal locked boxes, so I get that it may be easy to make the mistake, I‘m just glad they bring it to me when they receive it!

I‘ve got two and a half hours left and I don‘t know if I can handle it. The last few hours have been just everything that can go wrong for the main character going wrong. I‘m stressed out, but I also want to know if things end well.

Megabooks The very last ending is fantastic! I had to audio skim a bit around where you‘re at. It is a bit difficult to read the part leading up to the end. 3mo

Yay!!! A neighbor brought my BOTM box over after it was mistakenly delivered to them. That made my day. 🤗 Now….which to read first!?

The saddest email to get when your book isn‘t actually delivered. 😭😭😭 I‘m hoping I get it tomorrow because otherwise it was delivered to a neighbor and NO ONE brings mis-delivered packages to the right house. My mail carrier literally lost 7 packages over a month.

I started this one when it came out and didn‘t get far. Figured I‘d give the audiobook a try. I would have loved to know more about Finnick, a young Haymitch, Mags. I‘m not sure why Collins chose to write about Snow, of all people. I don‘t really care about all these capitol characters.

Not a fan. Finished it for my book club, but if I had been reading it on my own it would have been a DNF. The audiobook wasn‘t bad though.

I was so excited to see my box was delivered, but when I got home it hadn‘t been, even though it says it was put in my mailbox on the usps tracking. 😢 My carrier often misdelivers the mail, so I‘ve lost many a package. I contacted BOTM to see what they can do. I was looking forward to reading this and the pins!!!

Over a month ago my cats saw a cat through an open window and then proceeded to get in a bad fight with each other. They‘ve just started being okay being around each other again. We spent a good chunk of today hanging out. I‘m so happy! It‘s been so stressful having to keep them separated.

I saw this in the Halloween discount bin for $6 (from $30!) and had to have it for my shelves. Is it weird to have a Halloween decoration up all year? Haha

Man, this podcast is cathartic after being the only person in my book club who just really hated Ready Player Two. This podcast is like Mystery Science Theater/Rifftrax for bad books. After this one I may read along with Midnight Sun (I love Twilight but also know it‘s garbage, lol).

We start our school year earlier than most other schools and our days are a bit longer, so I‘m usually off a bit before other teachers. I have two weeks, TWO, before summer camp starts. I‘m almost through the first and while I haven‘t done a lot (and still worked a bit) I‘m making sure to take time for myself. I feel a little guilty, but after this crazy school year I know I need it at the same time!
