Thunderhead (Reprint) | Neal Shusterman
post image

I‘ve started Thunderhead while waiting to put my son‘s basketball practice clothes in the dryer. Why do they never remember until 10 pm that they need all they things washed? I am giving him grace this time but next time he is going to just have to figure it out. Also, I love the book so far ❤️

I got an Amazon gift card for speaking to a local nursing class about my Crohns disease. I, of course, spent it on a book. I have shoved another book aside and moved this one to the front!

The book I am reading for #LMPBC is one that I picked up used. It is in great condition so I didn‘t really flip through it before buying it. Turns out the previous owner wrote in it! We get to see another person‘s thoughts about the book. Anyway, I am loving the book and just had to share the treasure of someone else‘s notes 😊

TheBookKeepers Ha that‘s fun! 2w

It is my goal to read everything Henri J.M. Nouwen has ever wrote. This is #3 of many. My favorite take away is this, “Christian leaders cannot simply be persons who have well-informed opinions about the burning issues of our time. Their leadership must be rooted in the permanent, intimate relationship with the incarnate Word, Jesus, and they need to find there the source for their words, advice, and guidance.”

My husband is on night shift now so I have been listening to audiobooks as I go to sleep. I can‘t listen to new books though because I just stay awake listening. I am rereading Red Rising and I forgot how much I love it!

My 65 year old neighbor asked if we could read this together and then discuss. It has lead to some interesting discussions and we haven‘t even made it to chapter 5 yet! I am not sure that this book is for everyone but I have appreciated the talks and time spent with my neighbor/friend ❤️

Tamra This one definitely sounds like fodder for interesting conversation. 2mo

I had no idea that one of my favorite tv shows was a book series! I am pretty bummed the library only has ebooks for the first four in the series. Now I have to wait in line to read them.

My daughter had her first cross country meet today. This was the first time she has ever gone out for a sport. It was totally worth the 2.5 hour round trip to watch her run her heart out 🏃‍♀️❤️ Yay for audiobooks read by Wil Wheaton.

There was a lot in this book that resonated with me. I struggled a bit with chapter 7, A Muscular Jesus. I am not sure I can put into words yet why. I am going to sit with it a few days and read it again.

I feel so-so about this one. It was pretty funny and a sweet YA romance. The time travel got old for me by the end though.

If I hadn‘t promised my friend to read this book I would totally bail. I am 60 pages in and annoyed. First, the author seems rather arrogant. Second, he keeps attributing difficult things in his life to an evil force 🙄
