I got to work early this morning. It's been too long since I've time to hide in my quiet place around the side of the building with my coffee and my book. There was a nasty note in the kitchen from my night shift about my new day shift but I gave myself time to ignore it and read. #currentlyreading

Well I'm suddenly about 200 pages into this one already after starting it late Tuesday night. I can't put it down.
Correction, I had to put it down last night. It was making me very uneasy as I started trying to put things together. Serious "the call is coming from inside the house" vibes.

Recursion | Blake Crouch
post image

After skipping last month I went a little splurgy this month. I wanted A Nearly Normal Family too but I have a #botm backlog I need to get though. Plus you know, money.
Despite the backlog this may get put on the top of my #tbr. I'm really excited about Recursion and just love Beatriz Williams.
Sidenote, I joined Book of the Month about a year ago and my first pick was a Beatriz Williams (The Summer Wives) It's like full circle or something.

No! Guys, I ripped my book already. I'm only on page 9. It's not even a beat up old book I bought at a thift store. It's new, it's from Book of The Month and it's only ever been mine. And I betrayed it. 🙁
Well I guess it'll fit in on the shelf with all my beat up books.
I'm not a gentle reader.

That was excellent! The characters were so alive, the setting immersive. Often when a there are long descriptions of place and it's history in a story my eyes gaze over, I'm like "get back to the action". Not this time, this time I wanted to know everything, to be there, to feel it.
I might be getting better at handling gore or this book just handled it perfectly. I vote for both.
Easily very near the top of favorites for the year so far.

Mdargusch I totally agree! I loved this book! 7mo

The Boy Who Lost Fairyland | Catherynne M. Valente

I finished this yesterday. It's why I mentioned something this morning about reading two young people books in a row. I realized that I never posted about this.
It was so good. I love this series. I have the last book and I'm not ready to read it yet because I don't want the series to end.
There were a few pages toward the beginning that made me cry, literally tears it hit me so hard. Yes, these books are for kids but yes they are that beautiful

vumblereads I really like Catherynne M Valente‘s style of writing. I read Deathless, and it automatically became a favorite just with the first few chapters. 7mo

I don't usually two read children's or young adult books back to back but I let my son choose my next read for me from my TBR stack. I was overwhelmed by choice. He didn't know anything about any of the books and didn't ask. I guess this just spoke to him. I'm sticking to his pick and so far so good.

Six books in April. Four print, two audio.
It was a slow reading month but we went up to Universal for a weekend, then Easter and my dad's birthday. So we had a lot of fun days with no reading involved #worthit.

Mdargusch Did you like Less? I bailed on it. For some reason it wasn‘t funny to me. Maybe it was the wrong book at the wrong time?🤷🏼‍♀️ 7mo
kristincatastrophic @Mdargusch I did. It wasn't as great or as funny as I hoped it'd be but it had it's moments. Everyone has their own sense of humor though. I could see how some people might not like it. 7mo

Hi everybody! I haven't posted in 2 weeks. That's crazy, time flew.
Anyway, I'm lost guys. I can't decide on my #botm. None of them are really speaking to me. I don't think I want to skip though. I'm on a very serious book buying ban and this is my one shopping moment of the month.
Talk to me, what's good. What're you guys picking?
I've seen a lot of The Bride Test on here. So maybe?

TheNerdyProfessor I picked How Not to Die Alone because it was compared to Eleanor Oliphant, which I loved. Personally(and an unpopular opinion), I hate The Kiss Quotient, so I definitely passed on The Bride Test. 7mo
8little_paws I thought the nonfiction option looks fascinating! 7mo

I felt like a slacker because I hadn't finished anything this month but I buckled down and finished 3 last night. I guess that's what happens when you have 4 books going at once, you finished them at once.
So this one, I liked it. It was a little "Bell Jar" in style and it worked really well for me. I just got Rooney's next book, Normal People, from #botm and now really can't wait to read it.

10 books read if you count All My Friends Are Dead and I am. 9 physical and 1 ebook.
Daisy Jones and The Six was my favorite followed closely by The Care And Feeding Of Ravenously Hungry Girls and Early Riser.
Of the 3 thrillers I liked Behind Her Eyes best.
The Mermaid's Voice was excellent, better than her previous work, The Witch Doesn't Burn In This One, in my opinion. If my opinion means anything to you Lol

I did not pick this book for my #botm this month. I choose Lot. Then everyone around here started getting their books and I saw this book a lot and so many positive reviews. Honestly I had some serious FOMO going on. So, I went to the store and bought it. I couldn't even wait to add it on next month, I had to see what all the hype was about. I started it and I am all in baby! Loving it so far!

I honestly thought, ‘music, the 70s, drugs, not my jam‘ then I saw all the litsy love it was getting. Reading a library copy right now. I guess I‘ll wait on my botm box and see if I need to add it on so I own a copy. The struggle... 8mo

I inhaled The Witch Doesn't Burn In This One and keep going back to it. This one I've decided to read more mindfully. A little at a time so I have time to digest it.
My daughter asked me if her poetry "speaks to me" because she caught me tearing up with it in my hands the other night. Yes, yes it does.
She actually said "Mom, are you like crying? Those poems must mean something to you" Same thing.

Ugh. I really wanted to love it, I believe a lot of people did, but I just couldn't get passed the first few pages. I was so lost. It felt like there were jokes I just wasn't getting.
So I read some reviews and did some more research. From all that I decided to bail. I was so afraid it would ruin To Kill A Mockingbird for me.

I needed something fluffy, it was fluffy but I think I'm burning out on books I can't relate to. I'd probably have liked it more if I wasn't generally angry at characters who can afford to buy nice dresses, jump on planes and eat out every meal. I stress $12 Walmart sneakers and the $8 Uber to work. If I'm that broke I should cancel BoTM. I know that, quiet you!
Anyway this book made me want doughnuts more than sexy time. 😉

Today was the book fair at my son's school. He picked out two dog stories for himself, and his brother, The Awakening of Sunshine Girl for his sister and Interrupting Chicken for his teacher. Because he bought the book for his teacher he got that awesome bookmark which he is very proud of.
I don't know this for sure but my theory is he picked the book for his sister because the author shares her name.

Next Year in Havana | Chanel Cleeton

Mehso-so

The reviews I read before this book were mixed so I didn't have high hopes and it met those expectations. It was a lovely story about snd a woman attempting to learn more about her family's past and her own nationality but it was repetitive. Not only were most of Luis's explanations of Cuban policies all the same in nearly every chapter but phrases (i.e. "A curse falls from his lips") were used over and over.
I did learn more about Cuban ⬇️⬇️

kristincatastrophic history than I knew and that felt important to me because I live in an area with a very large Cuban-American population. Trying to understand the struggles of others around me is always good. However broad generalizations of a people get under my skin. Maybe "all Cubans" believe "all Cubans are stubborn" but maybe not. Rubs me the wrong way or maybe I'm too sensitive. 10mo

Oh my, this messed me up man. I didn't know what to expect going in but I heard "dark thriller" and I see lots of Litsy people reading her books, so I went for it. I liked it but need a break from dark for a few books. ?
It was like an episode of Criminal Minds. That's how I described it too my mom. It's her favorite show but it gives me the creeping horrors. It's weird I can read graphic, sexual violence but can't watch it on tv or movies.

stephothebesto I'm the same way - I read Game of Thrones (and other violent /graphic books), but cannot handle the show. I think reading gives you the power to make the editorial decisions - skim, recast, fast forward... There's something different about it. 10mo
