Excited to start this. Just abandoned Woman in the Water and I already know I love the way Lehane writes, so here we go!
May #BOTM are here! So excited to dive into both of these.
Oh my goodness, even better than the first book. How much longer do I have to wait for another?! I love Neuvel's style of telling this story through interviews, transmissions, journals, news stories. It was so good from beginning to end and I can't wait for the next!
Excited about this one!
Working though Glass Sword this weekend. I loved Red Queen so much but it's been so long since it came out that I may have been better off rereading that first. Nevertheless, I remember completely eating up that story while this is more of a slow burner for me. Hoping the second half is more of a page-turner.
Lucky You was AWFUL, and I'm incensed that I spent time reading that meaningless drivel, so let's see what The Most Dangerous Place On Earth has in store for me 😂
This book made me laugh, made me weep, and made me feel like I'm not alone, like my voice matters too. Lindy West made her points beautifully, with a good grasp of comedy and gravity and what it means to be a good human. I loved this so much I bought it for myself, and I'll likely read it again - something I don't EVER DO. Favorite book of 2017 so far 😍
Starting the week off right with some planning, and starting The Fall Guy. Hope it's as good as I've heard!
Nine pages in and my heart is already feeling that familiar, endless ache. I miss my mom so much, and we cremated her and I went through similar feelings. I still do.
Diving into this. So is the cat.
My #botm selection for this month finally arrived! There were so many awesome books to choose from but I fell back onto this one because I've been dying to read it.
"Did Joe tell his daughter she was going to have a surgery? Did she ask him questions about it, and did he answer them truthfully? Did he convince her that it was her decision but that he wanted her to do it?... Did he tell her that her behavior had disappointed him, and that her mother and sisters and brothers were concerned and frightened by her? What did she think? We can only imagine."
About to get started on this. Hunkered down in the Outer Banks vacation house while Hurricane Matthew rages outside...
This was a hilarious and refreshing change to my usual thrillers and mysteries and heavy nonfiction topics. Maarten found himself listless and unmotivated after grad school. His girlfriend Sylvia landed a job on the remote island of Tarawa, and they ended up leaving their civilized lives behind. The story was pretty funny, pretty sarcastic, and very lighthearted.
Got this from the library forever ago and I'm just now getting through it. I thought the writer wrote a bit pretentiously at first but once I adjusted to his style, I've found this book quite humorous. A witty and downright funny tale of the author and his girlfriend moving to a tiny obscure island when she lands a job there.
"He shook his head and I saw how his face moved a little with concern for me, an acknowledgment, I thought, of how brave I was. Though I should have known that when men warn you to be careful, often they are warning you of the dark movie playing across their own brains. Some violent daydream prompting their guilty exhortations to ''make it home safe.'" (p. 286)
