Good start to the weekend. Really liked this one - writing was lovely, poetic, and it felt like a really original story. Can't claim to understand all the details of the world they inhabit, but I kind of get the feeling that we aren't meant to understand, but just go along with the ride.

Bk8 of November & Bk1 of #20in4 #readathon is done! I actually read this before but it was more skim read at the time coz brainfog meant I didn‘t grasp the science well, and this is full of it. As well as being one of the best heist novels I‘ve read! Is #SpaceHeist a genre? It bloody should be. I loved the gang formed to pull the con off, I love the con itself & I really enjoyed the science this time around. Needs repeat reads👍 #BookspinBingo 👇

I can't believe it's only a week until the next #BookSpin draw! As always here's my list which is the same except for the two drawn each month. I still have a bit of a backlog but I am determined to catch up and beat the list by the deadline of Jan 2nd.

A fun, satirical sci-fi novel about a bot with feelings determined to write a screen play to prove that bots aren't dangerous in a world where most humans hate bots. I really enjoyed the sense of humor in this and a lot of the ideas about the future (not that I would want most if any of them to come to pass), but the book definitely ran on too long in places-- especially since the writing is so stylistic.

Cleared the #SeriesBingo for 2021 with the second volume of the Crumbley books. I managed to at continue or DNF many of my started series. Some I even got to finish! This challenge really motived me to continue reading on all my started series. Hopefully, it'll continue in 2022!

🎧 A Dispatcher is a licensed killer who steps in if you‘re about to die by accident or murder. They kill you so you can live. Tony Valdez (our Dispatcher) has another crime to solve with his female police friend.

People around Tony are starting to die, some due to suicide (something a Dispatcher can‘t bring you back from) & it‘s possible that he‘s being implicated in their untimely deaths.

Enjoyed another selection from Audible Plus!

I got a gift card to the local bookstore for a gift swap at work! I spent like 3x what the card was worth, but that's okay. 😂📚

I‘ve been so sick with bronchitis the last week+ that I haven‘t been able to read at all. I finally picked this back up for book club and I‘m so confused. It‘s like the rules for time travel change depending on what the plot needs. I have to finish it this weekend, but it‘s giving me a headache. Has anyone else read this? Does it get better/start to make sense or should I just accept that it‘s gibberish I will never comprehend?

🎧 I loved this super short story read by Zachary Quinto. It was unique. (Audible Plus Catalog) If a Dispatcher kills you, you will wake up naked at home, ALIVE. It‘s a job 😁 killing people so they will live. Takes place in Chicago.

Here we solve the mystery of what happened to a Dispatcher. He‘s disappeared after his last dispatch went awry & ended up permanently deceased.

Another dispatcher & a police woman are on the case.
