The Thorn Birds | Colleen McCullough

I'm almost halfway through this monster of a novel. I was able to find an audio version on YouTube, luckily. Decent book full of #drama and #scandal, which fueled my run, cleaning day, and Christmas decorating yesterday. Hoping today will be the same. Definitely don't want to lose momentum and end up DNFing this one.

Zodiac Academy 6: Fated Throne | Caroline Peckham, Valenti

OMG! Thankfully, I‘ve got book 7 coming in the mail. And then I‘ll be all caught up and have to wait until December for book 8. I‘ve got to see what happens next! I love the characters and their arcs and this cliffhanger is killing me! If y‘all want a seriously good series that‘s like an adult Harry Potter you need to pick up this one! #chunksterchallenge #mustread

sprainedbrain You‘re almost there! I‘m having a little withdrawal so I‘m going to read the little novellas and such between now and December. 😂 4mo
KristiAhlers @sprainedbrain someone turned me on to the other series within this same world. I‘ve downloaded a couple for when I‘m all caught up. I went to start another book tonight and yeah…no 🤣 4mo

FINALLY finished this one after reading it for 3.5 months. It was so good and well researched, just heavy and emotionally difficult to read in some places. It is well worth any reader's time.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was honored to be able to read this. Hamby gives such value and justice to these devastating accounts of hard working miners who were affected by Black Lung Disease.

Mexican Gothic | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Just WOW! This book was both parts fascinating and terrifying. It was exactly what was looking for and I definitely need more novels like this. I can see how this book wouldn't be for everyone, but holy cow, everyone should at least give it a try. This bizarre, twisted tale of a dysfunctional family, romance, murder, and ghosts will certainly take you on a different ride than what you were expecting.

This series is fantastic. Hours pass while I'm immersed in this world losing all track of time. This author has an amazing ability to put her characters in the worst situations ever and write the most amazing, hateful villains. The portrayal of war and genocide almost takes it out of the YA genre, but so well done. #highlyrecommend #mustread

BarbaraBB I love your associations! 7mo
TrishB I loved Assembly, very moving. 7mo
Clwojick I know! I‘m definitely going to have to do this challenge again! I planned most of my reading ahead of time, and it‘s helped me prioritize my NetGalley and Chirp audiobooks. I have a bad habit of hoarding my digital collection just as much as my physical collection. 🤣 7mo
Cinfhen I‘m not feeling Assembly @TrishB so it‘s going on pause and I‘m making a new association for Eudora @BarbaraBB @Clwojick - a #NetGalley #ARC #MustRead - and both authors are named Annie 😁 7mo

Eating Animals | Jonathan Safran Foer

Pickpick

This was educational and eye opening that has lead me to look into where my animal products come from. This is an important read for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. He doesn't so much push vegetarianism as take an anti factory farm stance encouraging people to learn where their.meat comes from. This was written pre COVID and I would #highlyrecommend for the section on pandemics and WHO'S comcern for the next one. It is 100%accurate. #mustread

I have no words to describe this book. It‘s a fun and fast read and you find that the main character is quirky, naive and likable. Two thirds through the book, omg!!!! I can see why there‘s a movie already in the making. Good job Nita, good job. I applaud you 👏🏻 👏🏻👏🏻 #themaid #nitaprose #goodread #soontobemovie #mustread
