Was a huge fan of Ready Player One and couldn't wait to listen to this one... It did not disappoint! And the narration by Will Wheaton is a cherry on top!

I honestly haven‘t picked up a book to read in a few weeks. I have been so overwhelmed by life that come the end of the day I just want to sleep. But today, it‘s a rainy, rainy day and there are five kids that are all engrossed in drawing and coloring, so now‘s my chance to jump back in!

I climbed into bed hoping to do some reading, but the second I did I became sooo tired! #justanotherchapter

BookaholicNatty I‘m constantly awaking to a *CRASH* which is my book falling to the floor because I have fallen asleep while trying to read in bed! #bookloverproblems 7mo
BookaholicNatty I did really enjoy this book though! 7mo
Tashaxlynn @BookaholicNatty yesss, the same happens here! I‘m intrigued with the way the story is being told right now, I can‘t wait to read some more! 7mo

Okay so this book popped up in my Facebook and is being advertised as the Harry Potter series for adults. Now I‘m intrigued because of course I can‘t pass up a new series like Harry Potter, but I‘m skeptical. Can anyone confirm this for me before I become invested?!?!

PerksOfBeingABookworm My wife is reading this series right now (I haven‘t read it). She said that it‘s not a good comparison to Harry Potter (but, I mean, what would be?), but that it‘s still a good series. The plot seems to be driven by action more than dialogue. She gets sucked in every time she starts the next book. I‘m not sure if that helps or not... 7mo
Tashaxlynn @PerksOfBeingABookworm ahhh yes! That‘s suuuuuper helpful! Thank you! 7mo

I don‘t even know where to begin. I feel like this really had potential, but it fell flat... wayyy flat. I kept hoping there would be more to it. I spent most of the time listening thinking, is this really what I‘m listening to right now? I did find the relationship between the brothers intriguing. The bright side, it was free and short!

Today I was offered a really cool job opportunity for the summer. I spent the day deciding if I should accept it, because I‘m doing so I wouldn‘t be able to take summer courses. It was a super tough choice and I am pretty bummed about pushing out graduation another semester, but I‘m excited to have this experience, so I accepted! And to celebrate/console myself, I bought more books to add to my summer TBR list, now I‘ll have the time to read!

Prettytears Congratulations, and perfect gift you gave yourself there😊 7mo

I‘m so glad I finally listened to this book! I have been wanting to for a while now. Noah is such a fantastic narrator. The stories he tells of his childhood are funny, or heartbreaking or eye opening. If you have the chance to listen to them, I highly recommend it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am so incredibly conflicted by this novel! It took me a year to get through all of it, many times abandoning it. It is beautifully written and there portions of it that keep you turning the page, but then there are incredibly dense and slow moments as well. It was a long, long listen and sometimes it just felt like it was never going to end. But overall, I liked the storyline and how the story ended. I‘m just not sure I would recommend it.

LiteraryinLititz Thanks for that helpful review. Congrats on finishing it! 8mo
hilded It‘s on my list this year, hope I‘ll enjoy it. I loved ‘The Secret History‘, but I understand they are very different. 8mo

Tashaxlynn @LiteraryinLititz haha, thanks! When I heard it was going to be a movie I decided I needed to finish it so I could compare the book to how they decide to do the movie 8mo
Tashaxlynn @hilded a lot of the reviews I read on Good Reads said the same thing. She‘s a beautiful writer, I would definitely try another book of hers. 8mo
Tashaxlynn @suzie.reads exactly why it took so long to read. I kept stopping because I was bored 8mo

I love that as a “coming of age” novel, it doesn‘t follow the typical structure. I love hearing the story is told through various voices and that it begins at the end! I would recommend others to check it out if you‘re interested in something a bit different!

Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront

I struggled in deciding to pick how I wanted to rate the book. I really enjoyed parts of it, the above quote is arguably the best quote from the whole book! However, as the book progressed my sympathy for Heathcliff‘s character diminished and somewhere in the middle I could no longer stand him. In class we discussed him as a Byronic Hero and I suppose it fits with his character, but it didn‘t make me like him anymore.

So here‘s the deal, I have to read a ton for school and while the books are great, they require close and thorough reading, so it‘s not always relaxing. I have been struggling to find a good book to read (or listen too) since the tagged book! I need something to break up all the work, I‘m going crazy!

AthenaWins I like a good novella to break things up between harder reads. They're quick, easy to follow, and usually just as fun if not even more so than full length novels. I don't know what your preferred genre is, but the Murderbot Diaries were amazing, fun and exciting reads. My favorite series from last year. 9mo
Tashaxlynn Hey, thanks @AthenaWins ! I‘ve never heard of it, I‘ll check it out! 9mo
AthenaWins @Tashaxlynn the tagged book is the first one. 😊 9mo
Birdsong28 The tagged book is so good and even though the title suggests it's just for winter it takes you all through the years of the characters. It's light compared to the heavy books you would have been reading. 9mo
Tashaxlynn @Birdsong28 I think I‘ve heard of that one! I‘ll check it out, thank you!!! 9mo

Here‘s my unpopular opinion: I like the theme of Jane as a strong willed and independent woman, rather than the love story of her and Mr. Rochester!
