The Whisper Man | Alex North
Mehso-so

It‘s not an awful book, but it wasn't the best thriller I've read.

Side note: What kind of super powers does Mama Llama have that she can get her kid to calm down with just a few sentences?

It | Stephen King
post image

So I‘ve never been able to finish the book because I‘m just not a big Stephen King fan, but my husband and I enjoyed seeing _It: Chapter 2_ this weekend; the picture is of us preparing for the movie to start. Have you seen it? How does it compare to the book (besides the missing scene with all the kids having sex...thank you, filmmakers)?

Leftcoastzen Great photo! The Dunder Mifflin t-shirt is added value!😁 2mo

Me: I need to read my library books, read books for @LibrarianRyan ‘s challenge, read books for @GatheringBooks ‘ questions...

Also me: Read this new-to-you book instead.

My husband works in transportation, so I bought this for him to read to my son. #MydearWatson loves anything to do with books and especially the alphabet, so I think this will be good for them to share.

Can I just say this is the best book I've read in a long time, better even than _Convenience Store Woman_? Holy moly. Maybe it's because I loved the movie so much, but goodness.

Read this over the weekend. I read the original awhile back but had trouble with the emotionless of it (I realize now maybe it was because of the narration structure); this version helped move it along and give emotions to the characters.

I would definitely recommend this novel if you like fairy-tale re-tellings; just be careful with the TWs.

Thirteen years ago, I went to #Rwanda. It‘s such a wonderful place, and they continue to rise from their past. I knew a little bit about what went on there but not a lot. I read the first few pages of this book and got horrifying chills. I bought my own copy later...still haven‘t finished it. May God forgive us for what happened here, and may it never happen again.

The last time I was in Honduras, I would read this in hammocks on our breaks.

Also, you might not be able to tell from the picture, but this is a mini-edition, so that made it interesting 🤔.

Does it count as a #detour if it‘s magical, a shortcut, and really the only way to get there?
