The Terror: A Novel | Dan Simmons

Pickpick

This is a chunkster and took me one month to finish it! But definitely worth reading! It has everything - history, drama, suspense, gore and horror. And is way better than the tv series (although I enjoyed the show). I loved it!

Rating: 5🌟

trioxin_sematary Loved this book also, it was so fast-moving and intense. I forgot there was a tv series made of it, I'll need to check it out! 👌 11mo
thereadingowlvina @trioxin_sematary I hope you enjoy the tv series! 😊👍 11mo

Got to Chapter 7 in this novel, I‘ve finally realised that reading with a magnifying glass is much worse than forking out over $700 for new glasses.🤓 This is for #MountTBR2019 #MtKilimanjaro #Bk5 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterC & #LitsyLoveBingo #LLB19 #aBOTMpick

MelissaSue81 $700 for new glasses?! Yikes. Look into zenni optical! I got mine for $7! But I have a very basic presicription. 11mo
Linsy Gorgeous cover! 11mo
JaclynW What a lovely cover! 😍 11mo

TheLibrarian I agree with @MelissaSue81 - try Zenni. My eye prescription is pretty bad and it forces me to get the highest index lenses, but they were still only $75, plus $25 for frames. Cheaper than using my insurance. 11mo
BookishMarginalia What a gorgeous edition! 11mo
rather_be_reading gorgeous! 11mo
minkyb I wear progressive lenses and they are ridiculously expensive even using online discount sites. It is quite depressing. 11mo

My next book is also doing triple duty in reading challenges. For #NonFiction2019 its #SomethingYouSawOnLitsy its #Bk3 on #MtKilimanjaro #MountTBR2019 its #ReceivedInALitsySwap in #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 John Charles Gilkey is a rare book thief, not for money, because he loves books so much he‘s willing to go to prison for them. Ken Sanders is the investigator who‘s out to catch him. This is about the cat & mouse game that follows.

I‘m so happy that Connelly has gotten over his slump of writing. Some of his last Bosch books weren‘t great at all, but this Renee Ballard book was fantastic. Though, it does at times feel like a female Bosch, the story & writing are up to his original level, which is a relief. Ballard is a great addition to Connelly‘s cast of characters. This is my #FemaleDetective for Booked2019 & #Bk2 for #MtKilimanjaro #MountTBR2019.

Cinfhen Great review!! Congrats on completing another prompt ‼️‼️‼️ 12mo

Finally on the downslope of the migraine I‘ve been nursing since yesterday & pairing my current read with a Chamomile Honey & Vanilla tea. This book is for the #FemaleDetective prompt in #Booked2019 and is #Bk2 in my #MtKilimanjaro #MountTBR2019 The first book featuring Detective Renee Ballard, a cop who‘s busted down to the night shift after filing a harassment complaint on her LT, she catches 2 unrelated cases & finds connections between them.

4thhouseontheleft I‘m glad your migraine is getting better! Your tea sounds yummy. ☕️ 12mo
Cinfhen Sorry about the migraine xx as a fellow sufferer I feel your discomfort 😘😘 12mo

What a gorgeous little book! I started taking photos of text I loved, it was so evocative. Even though the flora & fauna in the UK is so different than Australia‘s, the feeling of looking up at the stars with no city lights, & a dawn breaking with the sound of birdsong & mist is exactly the same. Definitely miss my #HappyPlace #Booked2019 #NonFiction2019 #SomethingOnYourTBRForOverAYear #MountTBR2019 #Bk1 #MtKilimanjaro

#MountTBR

If recently published books that I put on my #TBR before they got on the market count, then I've reached #MtKilimanjaro.

Not to mention I've managed to finish my Goodreads Reading Challenge. I should stop being cautious and increase the number of books I intend to read.

Graciouswarriorprincess I am half way to Mount Blanco but have read over 100 books so far this year. Need to finish my tbr for this challenge. Congratulations!! (edited) 3y
Suet624 Nice!!!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 3y
Yanes Wow... congrats 3y

julesG @Graciouswarriorprincess - I feel like Sisyphus, as soon as I've reached a plateau, the next incline/another large stack of books appears in front of me. There are more than 500 books on my kindle alone. 🙈 3y
PurpleyPumpkin Good for you! Congrats!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 3y
DGRachel That's awesome! I've blown my Goodreads challenge out of the water, but most of them have been books I bought after 1/1/17, so they don't count for Mount TBR. I've only managed 13 books for that challenge. 😳 3y
RaimeyGallant Nice! 3y
