Starting this one today. #2 in the #series. It has been awhile since I read the first. I think I remember enough though. My library only had the large print available without having it sent from another branch. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I already deviated from my #24B4Readathon. I‘d forgotten about hVing not yet finishing this one. Tonight I finished. It‘s an epic with lots of interesting themes. I‘ll likely not forget these characters anytime soon, but it wasn‘t a book I couldn‘t put down. Only 3:5 ⭐️. But the writing is lovely. #mayMadness

Finished #2.

TheReadingMermaid Nice!!! 👍😃👍 2d
Andrew65 Same for me, I started this a few months ago but not felt the desire to pick it up and finish it. So well done. 👏 2d

I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was heartbreaking, sweet and laugh-out-loud funny all at once. I had not seen anything about it prior to reading it but it definitely reminded me of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. When I finished it I read some reviews and see that I am totally not alone, which is reassuring 😊👍🏼

marleed I just received a library notice that my library purchased this book at my request. I‘m so excited. They don‘t receive it until May 27 but I‘m #2 on one copy. Hopefully they purchase more copies this week! 2d

The Magic Treehouse Book #2 was great. It‘s too bad Jack doesn‘t have a camera in his book bag, although he has books about the places they visit so I guess he doesn‘t need one. Book 27 of 2019

One of my 2019 reading goals is to finish books in a series that I have already started. I enjoyed the first book of this series so much!!! I‘m relistening to it on audio before I move on to book #2 because I know there is a lot that I have already forgotten. If you are into sci-fi you will love this. What series have you started that you need to finish?? I love a good series so fill me in on your favorites! #SeriesRead

Leniverse I'm currently finishing Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy. I took a long break after the second book, both because the series is really heavy on the science, and because I was terrified that it would all go wrong in the final book and I needed to pause while I still had hope for humanity. Almost done with the final book now, and I still have hope! Love this series and want to move to Mars. 😅 5d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag I‘m a series grinch these days - often I‘m interested in the premise of a book but end up striking it off my tbr when I find out it‘s part of a series 😐 that said, I‘m still keeping up with Jim Butcher‘s The Dresden Files (which has been easy as he hasn‘t released anything for 4 or so years now), Alan Bradley‘s Flavia de Luce series and most recently fell in love with Alyssa Day‘s Tiger‘s Eye Mysteries and Ilona Andrews Innkeeper Chronicles... (edited) 5d
BookishBelle I started Nevada Barr‘s Anna Pigeon series last year. I‘m reading the third one now. I‘m somewhere in the middle of Janet Evanovich‘s Stephanie Plum series. I need to get back to those. I‘d like to get back to The Dresden Files that @thegirlwiththelibrarybag mentioned. I read the first few probably ten years ago and really liked them but haven‘t gotten back to them. 5d

House of Leaves | Mark Z. Danielewski, Zampanò

I've read online a few reasons why "House" is always printed in blue. 1. It is supposed to represent a blue screen (same as green screen in movie making). 2. Since parts of this book floated around online before it was even published, the blue is supposed to indicate the text is a link to a website. #2. Makes more sense to me because the house is obviously a link to another world and I could understand the symbolism there.

Thought this was a pretty good read bring that I just discovered this author by reading another series. Elle took on the bike shop by painting the bikes in a theme which were really popular with the tourists on Mackinac Island. Really enjoyed the quaint town. As always there was a murder to solve & that most elightning. Looking forward to reading book #2 in the series soon .
