Daisy Jones & The Six was a wonderful book. I highly, highly recommend listening to the audiobook. I‘m not sure I would have enjoyed it nearly as much if I had just read the book. All the narrators added so much more to the story!

Pretty strong start to the year. This graphic novel exploration of conspiracy theories is timely and made me feel uncomfortable (but in a good way). 4/5 🌟

If I hadn‘t been reading it for a book club, there is no way I would have finished it. I found none of the characters likable, which isn‘t necessarily bad. What is bad is that I disliked them because they were all cliches. It‘s been a while since I read a book that cause me to eye roll so hard that I gave myself a headache.

Has anyone had any shipping issues with orders from Tin House? I placed an order back in April and the status of my order still says “processing.” I‘ve sent to emails to the order support address listed on their website and haven‘t gotten a response. I decided to send them an Instagram (since I don‘t have Twitter) message to see if they would respond. I‘m a big fan of Tin House‘s publications, but not a huge fan of their customer service 🙄

Harry Potter: fun book | J.K. Rowling
post image

Is anyone else already kind of over this game? I was so exited for it, but so far I feel like I only get like 5 minutes of play time, then I have to wait for ever for my energy to build back up. It‘s definitely not what I thought it was going to be...

Traci1 I like it but don't love it. I can see already it won't be something I'm playing a month from now. I so wish they'd come out with some sort of open world sim type Harry Potter game. I want to be able to explore Diagon Alley and Hogwarts and Hogsmeade the way I want to do it. An MMORPG would be great. They would get ALL my money. 2y
DGRachel Yeah, I‘m already bored and “over it”. 😴😔 2y
Zoe_reads_books @Traci1 Exactly!! I was hoping this game would be more open world! 2y

LauraBrook Shoot, I forgot this was out! Downloading now (and keeping expectations low). 2y
jfalkens I already played some and deleted it. I didn't like the limited energy and push to pay for more energy. 2y
LibrarianRyan Yeah. I thought it would be a bit more like Pokémon Go, but it feels more like FarmVille. 2y
Zoe_reads_books @LibrarianRyan I think there is another Harry Potter game that is actually made by the people who made Pokémon Go that‘s coming out later this year! I‘m still holding out hope that it will be a good game! 2y

This is honestly unbelievable! I thought for sure the killer would go the way of Jack the Ripper or the Zodiac Killer. If on Michell McNamara was alive to see this! She played such a large part in finding the killer.

DGRachel I hope this is true and that they‘ve finally caught him. 2y

I really loved The Martian so I had high hopes for this book. After 50 pages, I still had no interest in the story, so I‘m DNFing it. I have to many other books on my TBR that I would much rather read instead.

Not the greatest graphic memoir I‘ve ever read, but enjoyable nonetheless. It follows the lives of the author, her mother, and her grandmother. Most of the book is about the grandmother surviving the holocaust, which I thought were the best parts. I also really like the illustration style. 3/5 ⭐️

The best books of short stories I‘ve read in a long time! It took me a while to read because I wanted to savor it. Yes, the stories are very bleak, but they are written absolutely beautifully! 5/5 stars

I can‘t wait to give this to my dad for Christmas. Growing up, there were always interesting rubber stamps around the house and my dad always let me so in stamping sprees with them. This art book from an artist in Paris who creates subversive rubber stamps seems right up his alley. #BOOKFRIDAY2017 @Liberty
