Picked up some graphic novels for a change of pace.
Catching up on some classics and this line made me laugh.
I don‘t know where this is going yet, but I‘m here for it. Thanks to the hosts of #booksinthefreezer podcast for the rec
I loved this cozy-ish murder mystery set in a swampy Louisiana small town. The main character is sassy, plucky, and delightful. She always manages to get herself into a mess. Trouble just follows her like the muddy stench of the bayou on a summer day. It‘s a fast read; easily consumed in an evening or two. I‘m looking forward to the rest of the series. #ReadAlike if you like the Stephanie Plum series, you‘ll love this. This is better in my opinion
Oy. I‘m not sure I would have picked this up had I realised the heavy religious tones involved. I thought I was in for mind bending horror. The skewed biblical tones in this story are so on the nose you can‘t even call it allegory. It‘s like watching a twelve hour long episode of Supernatural. (Not one of the good episodes either)
I could not put this book down! I read the first half in one sitting, and finished the rest in another. I love volcanoes so maybe this is just super in my wheelhouse. It‘s action packed, nonstop, yet tender and sweet too. It‘s everything I want in a post apocalyptic story! Highly recommend
I‘m so mad. I could see the other possibility and thought to myself, “Nah, that‘s not how this is going because that‘s too much. Too stupid.” And I‘ll be damned if the author didn‘t take the stupid trope route. I should have trusted my DNF radar and bailed on this while I had the chance. Lesson learned. Trust your instincts.
Firstly, read this in one sitting. Set aside two hours and just knock it out all at once. The claustrophobic suspense builds very well if you don‘t put this one down. The prose is staccato, helping to build that tone of unknown fear. And I never wanted to put it down! Now, I need several friends to go read this and talk about it because I‘m shooketh. I need to know what you think, maybe that will help me figure out what I think 🧐🤓 #bookhangover
I am enjoying this book immensely. It‘s about a young woman in 1930‘s Kentucky, who happens to be the last of her kind. A blue woman. I‘m fascinated by Appalachia and the blue people of Kentucky, so it‘s an interesting character study. The fact that she‘s a pack horse librarian riding her mule through the hillside to deliver reading materials and other necessities to other hill folk only makes this better. Definitely a book for Book Lovers!
Gawd this book was infuriating! Every damned character made me want to smash things. I‘m not usually bothered by unlikeable characters, but I found myself getting annoyed by them instead of engrossed in the plot. The mystery is conveyed by MC continually eluding to this big bad secret. I felt more irritated by the contrived suspense than intrigued by the story. Not a DNF but not a favourite either. Will still read this author though.
I made an exception to my self imposed rule of reading only women authors in 2019 because I love Fred Rogers so much.
Is there anything better than this audiobook narrated by Lavar Burton?! Maybe unicorns baking cupcakes. Nah, not even that.
I‘m finally reading this. Knocking dents in my TBR! I made a fast friend at a book sale when we connected over the idea of spending an entire year reading only women authors. (2019 for me)
She kept handing me great titles; some that are new to me and some I recognized as already being on my TBR. We traded recommendations and had a great time! Don‘t you just love book people?!
Here‘s the rest of my #bookhaul
Grand total for this year‘s book sale season is *drumroll* 126 books. (That is NOT counting the ones DH got) 📚😊 Funny story, I picked up The Smack, but my brain thought it was The Slap. Derp. Lol. I can re-donate it.
I‘m so happy right now.. high on that sweet, sweet smell of ink and paper.
I‘m building a book fort.
