I can‘t remember who posted the #AllTheBooks Banana Pants T-shirt , but I got my tank! I love it! From Tee Fury I believe, and they‘ve got it in lots of t and tank styles and colors. Yay #BananaPants 🍌👖!

(Pretty sure this was created by the All The Books podcast folks)

I just discovered this is available on Hoopla, so my second #makemereadit is about to start as I get some work done in my stained glass studio. I‘m hoping for a fun, silly, maybe kinda #bananapants read 🍌👖.

Moray_Reads It is all of those things 10mo
saresmoore Agreed with @Moray_Reads—there are a lot of wordsmith acrobatics that belie real depth, but on the surface, it‘s a lot of fun. 10mo
LectricSheep That is a perfect description! I listened to the audio of this and really enjoyed it. 10mo
Soubhiville @Moray_Reads @saresmoore @LectricSheep thanks everyone! About 2 hours in and I‘m enjoying it! 10mo
Mimi28 I just got this from the library on Saturday!! The book not the audio, I hope it‘s just as good 10mo

Mort(e) | Robert Repino
post image

Congrats on your milestone @BarbaraBB and thanks for hosting the #SpotlightGiveaway!

Mort(e) is a fun and wacky sci-fi that fans of the Annihilation trilogy and 🍌👖 books like Hitchhiker‘s Guide should love.

It‘s a story of animals, particularly pets, rising up and taking over the world. With the help of giant ants. For real. Banana-pants. Read it.

BarbaraBB That cover 😍! Thanks for participating! 10mo

While I didn‘t enjoy this quite as much as I did Mort(e), it was a fun and fast read. I liked getting to know Culdesac the bobcat, and learn his backstory. I was surprised at the end, and I‘m wondering where Repino will go with the next book, D‘Arc. I may pick it up soon.

These covers are some of my favorites! Simple but so cool!

(Thank you Holly!)

Hooked_on_books You‘re welcome! And those covers are great. 1y
ReadingRover I have Mort(e) on audiobook but haven‘t listened to it. I‘m really excited to. I also have D‘arc in print (which I think is the second book) that I got at as an ARC at BookExpo last year. Idk why I‘ve waited this long. 1y
Soubhiville @ReadingRover I hope you‘ll enjoy them! 1y

WHOA....That went in a totally different direction....This book isn‘t winning any literary awards but it was certainly entertaining. A tad trite, with some pretty common plot devices but I was still rapidly turning the pages. #BorrowNOTbuy

RadicalReader @Cinfhen they seriously should have a pph ( pages per hour) to show how good and quickly a book propelled the reader through it 1y
Cinfhen That would be interesting @RadicalReader 🤓👍🏻 1y

tpixie Ha! Fro picked which book you should read 1st!! 🐈 🐱 1y
Soubhiville @tpixie I‘m almost done with Behind Her Eyes. I was intrigued with the twisty ending I kept hearing about... I should know by this evening 🤪 1y
Foragingfantasy I've read two of my january tbr and now... I've strayed. I still think that's better than most months. A list is to be ignored. 1y

Wow, this book was fantastic! It reminded me of a Total Recall/The Matrix/Back To The Future II 'mash-up' whilst remaining very slick. It was fast paced from the start, drew me right in and had me rooting for the main character throughout. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You MUST read this, @TrishB

AmandaL The ending was total bananapants! I loved the delivery and how it bent my mind thinking about it. Great review! 2y
Ms_T @AmandaL Sci-fi isn't my usual choice of genre but I'll definitely read more like this! #BananaPants 😂😂😂 2y
TrishB You've just pushed it a bit further up the tbr! Great review 👍 2y

Richryan52 Loved the premise. Couldn't put it down, but I found the ending a bit of a disappointment 2y
Avanders I also 💙'd that one! 2y
Ms_T @Richryan52 I did wonder how it would draw to a conclusion but I thought it was a good ending 😃 2y
Ms_T @Avanders 👍🏻 2y
Richryan52 @Ms_T I suppose we will just have to agree to disagree. At least on that point. I did not hate the conclusion. But for me it just didn't work. 2y

What...the...heck...just happened?! My mind is blown. This is exactly like the description says: it's a mash-up heavy on the Scooby-doo, Lovecraft, and I would add Jasper Fforde! This book is NUTS! It's weird, funny, exciting. Must be why I loved it! #bananapants

I've been listening to this whole doing some chores and walking the dog. Somehow I never had to read it in school. James Franco isn't the best narrator, but I'm going to stick with it since it's short. I never knew how bizarre and #bananapants this book was! 🍌👖Freaking weird!

britt_brooke It's different, haha! I love it. 💚💚💚 2y
christineandbooks I just read it last month for the first time too. I'm glad I read it but it really wasn't my cup of tea. Really crazy stuff... 2y

Loved it! I've always enjoyed anthropomorphic animals of every kind, from the rats of Nimh to the rabbits of Watership Down.
It felt timely to read this in a he current political climate, too. Queen Ant smacks of Big Orange Man in ways...
I look forward to sequels!

MaleficentBookDragon This sounds so good!😻 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk So good, this book! When I was reading apparently I had a look on my face, and when my wife asked what was wrong I said "This cat HAS to find this dog or I will NOT be okay!" Left me emotionally drained, but worth it. 2y
