Holy Crap! the World Is Ending!: How a Trip to the Bookstore Led to Sex with an Alien and the Destruction of Earth
Holy Crap! the World Is Ending!: How a Trip to the Bookstore Led to Sex with an Alien and the Destruction of Earth | Anna-Marie Abell
17 posts | 5 read | 19 to read
End Times Are Here! Now you can eat whatever you want and not care if you gain weight.The president has announced that Earth is going to collide with a rogue moon, and in the process, our entire planet is going to be smashed to bits.As one would expect, upon hearing this news, humans went ballistic. It was as if every sports team in the world lost their championship game at the same time. No car was left unrolled--but oddly enough, Taco Bell remained open and made unfathomable profits in the last days. Apparently, Doritos Locos(R) Tacos were a popular last meal.Autumn (who for the purpose of this retelling asked to be portrayed as drool-inducing hot with kick-ass ninja skills) has just been handed the task of saving all of humanity. With the help of her unbelievably sexy alien boyfriend and her kleptomaniac friend with fire-retardant hair, Autumn takes a spaceship and races to save her fellow humans by using the Ark of the Covenant. Along the way, she discovers how sheltered people are from the truth of extraterrestrials and their power to either protect us or destroy us.Stupid government.Grab a bottle of wine, a shipload of snacks, and prepare to take a ride on this humorous chick lit romantic sci-fi paranormal adventure. If you're into Ancient Aliens, conspiracy theories, UFOs, crave a little sexy time in your reading, are curious if we were genetically engineered (like the Sumerian cuneiform texts claim), and are dying to find out the meaning of life, then this book is for you.

I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end. It was hilarious. I dont even have to tell you the premise since its on the cover. The cow cartoons throughout were awesome. Ending was sad but i actually did not cry. 5 stars for this one.

rockpools Well, ok! 5y
julesG @EchoLogical It's a very funny Sci-Fi-Romance. Doesn't take itself too seriously and has the best chapter titles ever. 5y

This book was different. Romance + Humour + Sci-Fi + Ancient Cultures + Greek Gods + ...

The title is quite revealing. Girl meets gorgeous, hot guy in bookshop and they fall for each other. His people don't want them to be with each other. The world is ending and humans on Earth are going really crazy; they can be saved, if they turn to love instead of hatred.
Yes, you guessed it, the couple comes to the rescue of mankind. A quest of ⬇⬇⬇

julesG ... epic proportions starts. Lots of jokes, lots of (pop) culture references, strange families, love and death. All in this one book. There are two things I struggled with: a lot of information is dumped in long dialogue scenes, and the last part of the novel (Part 2) is written in present tense; it fits the story but needed getting used to at first. 5y

#ForReasonsUnknown I find the last third of both books hard to get through.

The Historian: it somehow turned into a boring history lecture

Holy Crap: Part 2 is written in present tense, when before it was all in past tense.

Reviewsbylola I️ can understand why you feel that way about The Historian. It‘s too long imo. I️ started to get bored. 5y
silentrequiem The title of that second book is amazing. 5y
julesG @silentrequiem The book is funny. Sometimes a bit convoluted with too much funny dialogue. Will try write a review tomorrow. 5y

Leniverse I just picked up a used copy of the Historian at a 3 for Q9 (the charity shops here are very charitable ?) At that price I guess I can afford it to be boring. But I don't think I'll move it to the top of the TBR stacks. 5y
Leniverse And I agree with @silentrequiem about the title of the second book. 😂 5y
julesG I love charity shops in Britain. @Leniverse 5y
PirateJenny @Leniverse I loved all of The Historian, so ymmv 😊 5y

#Four for #NovemberByTheNumbers @Tiffy_Reads @JoeStalksBeck

And - the heroine is certainly expecting her #WakeUpCall any moment. The stuff that's happening to her is hilarious, gross, romantic, hot, and out of this world crazy.

#TuneIntoNovember @Robothugs @Cinfhen

BibliophileMomma @julesG for the win today. What a chapter title. 🤣👍🏼🙌🏼👏🏻 5y
julesG @Tiffy_Reads Thanks! The chapter titles in this book are all like this. 😀 5y
Jgaiser145 It's funny I read it very slowly at first so I went from thinking it was a butt cheek, to a face cheek, then to having it being confirmed as a butt cheek. Love it. 5y

#litsypartyofone commences. Is it weird that I'm reading now (4 a.m.) instead of going back to sleep after my daughter woke me about 20min ago? Naaah! Normal bookworm behaviour, right?

The cat has reclaimed her favourite spot - right under my chin. #catsoflitsy

julesG @thequeerspiderwoman - Ghost, the 5 month old kitten can't say hi, she's sleeping. 😉 5y

Caterina Hey, it's nice to see someone in a similar time zone here on Litsy! I'm in Palestine, so we're only an hour off! It seems like Litsy is all going to sleep when I'm waking up. 😂 Also, I would totally stay awake to read if woken up at 4 am. It'd be so quiet and peaceful, the perfect time to read! 5y
julesG @Caterina Good late Morning to Palestine! You're right about Litsy going to bed when I get up. 5y
Cathythoughts Is It Litsypartyofone time ?! Thanks for reminding me ❤️👍👍I had forgotten 5y
Centique @Caterina I‘m only an hour different to Palestine too! So we‘re awake together as all the US Littens 😴😴😴😴 5y

My #LitsyPartyOfOne has been hijacked. My daughter doesn't want to be in the picture though. She's the lump hiding under the Paisley patterned blanket.

The cat is lying on my belly. She's just had a very bumpy ride, I had to laugh so hard, first about something in the book then about my daughter hiding.

#NetGalleyReads
4.5 stars ✨ It‘s somewhat sacrilegious, romantic, sexy, crazy hilarious, full of high octane excitement & ridiculous puns, and fun as all heck to boot. I really liked how Abell managed to pack so much in, and how she managed to incorporate so many pop culture elements into a story so full of historical lore & research. Also, the humor struck me as reminiscent of that of Douglas Adams in the Hitchhiker‘s Guide to the Galaxy. 😁

This book! 😋 One solitary chapter in and I already can‘t wait to see where this goes. Aside from the hilarious storyline already in play, the chapter titles are the bomb. And this character‘s love of food? Well, can I just say I wanna party with her so hard right now? Hahaha 😜🍽

(Urgh having trouble even typing on this first post too. See earlier comment if not sure what I mean. Pls help @Litsy ! 😩)
