The Origin of Species | Charles Darwin

Book #63: I should preface this review with the fact that I am a paleontologist and I have been studying geology and paleontology for over 20 years. I came into reading The Origin of Species knowing full well that the text was written over 150 years ago and the science of paleontology and evolution has progressed at a lightening pace since then...

#63 of my year and it‘s getting harder and harder to pick which book I will read next. I have so many I still really can‘t wait to read but finding the order to read them all in is so hard! At least it‘ll be easy to pick what to read since half are in the mail & the other aren‘t released till later this year.

Caffeinated_Reader (P58) Oh shiiiit. This is like back in the day when I read Otherland and felt all creeped out because of the possibilities of the story. This is one of those stories that are eerie and only fictional because they‘ve not happened...yet 😰😵😳 3mo

Idk the first half was epic and eerie and great but the last half was like what it may have felt like to be in that situation lol stuck in a time loop. Pure hell. I think the story got the point across...don‘t fuck with time people!!! Crazy story. Thanks for the anxiety lol

This was a really good and SAD book but I had a hard time getting through it. I think I had a case of "It's not you it's me" with this one. I just needed to be in a different headspace I guess ?‍♀️ #63

#63 for 2018
This is my first time reading a book recommended by Oprah.... LOVED IT.
She captured the anguish and frustration of the characters so well which made it a believable narrative. I like the way it ended but I felt so sad for Andre in the end.

RaimeyGallant Nice review! 1y

Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.
#keepingitshort #63

I love this story!!!! So good. I expected the movie to be a straighter adaptation and it wasn't but damn if both aren't incredible. I might end up watching the movie tonight because it is definitely one of my favorites!

ReadingsByTheC Love! Different Seasons is one of my favorites. 2y
TheNextBook @ReadingsByTheC This story was so good. I can't wait to make my way through the rest! 2y
sprainedbrain One of my favorites! ❤️ 2y

So the entire reason why I wanted to do #keepingitshort this years was because I owned almost of all Stephen King's short story/novella collections. I'm starting this one today. And the first one up is Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption #63

GDLeon I so love that story! 2y
TheNextBook @GDLeon I've never read this collection! Complete fail on my part. I love the movie and was more than ready to read this. 2y

2017 #63 fantasy audio this book may have killed my desire to see Australia or maybe my love of dragons. It was yet again another why are we doing this and why does this even make sense but in the end the world building and the voice is what brings me back.
