Crazy Psycho Murder Tree | Patrick E. McLean

I'm pretty sure this #DoubleSpin has been the best #BookSpin book I've read so far. It started a little rough, and I wasn't sure where the story was going, but after a couple of chapters, it started making sense. I've enjoyed everything I've read by McLean, so I'm not all that surprised.

I liked it. The world building is interesting; like, did the storm create the powers? Or was the storm a result of the powers manifesting? Why some kids and not others? Good thing the story continues online!

From Page ninety-five.

What does it say about me that I always seem to find, Bruce Wayne's logic exhilarating...😂🤔😉.

Power outage at the campground last night due to the wind and the rain. Until it warms up outside or the heat comes back on in the cabin, this is where I‘ll be starting the readathon!

Just finished the last book in this self-published Super Powereds series and it was so good! This was probably my favorite series since Happy Potter or The Hunger Games. The characters develop so much from year one to year four, and you get to root for their success every step of the way. I‘m so sad it‘s done! Each book is so long (this was 61 hours), but it read faster than some 8 hour books. Highly recommend!

Thank you @TheSpineView for creating this play~tag~share card. 👇

AnnCrystal My mom was the least favorite of her abusive, acholic mother. She married my father, who (along with his family) was verbally abusive. Her mother (often) kept her from school, and when my dad kept her from continuing an EDU, my mom taught herself how to read, a second-language, and more. My dad's an insanely good worker (workaholic), but he also enjoys gambling and (given the chance) substance abuse. My mom manages the household...👇

AnnCrystal and since my dad hates kids (she had to plead with him to come see my brother when he was born), my mom's like a single mother. When my brother became sick, she was all alone with my brother in the hell of the hospital system. My dad was supposed to watch me, but he left me to his multiple-abusive (don't ask me about this) family members and friends while he lived a bachelors life. Through all this, I...👇

AnnCrystal watched my mom become stronger with her faith while my dad went searching. Outcast by most of her family (among their reasons, she doesn't drink, and can't handle hospitals or funerals). When my tutor gave up on teaching me to read (I'm a late reader. My brother was the genius), my mom found a way to teach me using Silent Movies. 👇 (edited) 2w

AnnCrystal While I have experienced polite racism, my mom has faced truly hateful racism (some I've even witness).

I could go on. My mom is like Bruce Wayne, she won't allow evils & difficult times to taint her character.

2nd ? - (most recent) Buffy Sainte-Marie. This is cheating, because I haven't read about her, only watched a bio...she makes a good role-model. A modern day warrior-heroine.

A hero from fiction? Tagged. I know, huge surprise 😉.

I was really confused when I started this series; there is book one, then two prequels. And book one ends on a huge cliff hanger. But it seems that book 2 is in the works. I can imagine staying the series and having to wait 9 years for a proper sequel. I'm enjoying the series. The "alternative" style is really well done. I'll probably read Batman Year 100 while I wait

I've made a list of the books I'd like to reread (one day. Eventually. Maybe).

I do believe I've rediscovered the book I want to top this list with...🤔who am I trying to kid? Like Batman would ever be 2nd on a list of good things I make😂! Only if there were two Batman books 😉. 👇

AnnCrystal It has been awhile since I've watched/read this. I do believe it remains my favorite storyline...except for the Bat-mobile being transformed into a Bat-tank, although that's just my personal taste in automobiles.

This might prove the perfect, unofficial continuation, to the book I recently read about young-adult Bruce Wayne by Marie Lu (Batman: Nightwalker). 👇

AnnCrystal This is the final book from my box of gold 🌟 star books📚 from my youth😉👍. Had planned on spreading the posts about these books over the coming “weeks“😂, yeah, I paced these posts out well (posted all within a week)...I seriously have no self-restraint 😂. Aren't you all lucky that the box holding my Gold 🌟 Star Books didn't once belong to Mary Poppins 😂. 2w
TieDyeDude That's so fun that you still have all of them! I only have a handful of childhood books left. I remember, though, when movie novelizations were a big deal. I still remember sitting a a chair for 5 hours reading the novelization for Star Wars Attack of the Clones straight through. There was always a few extra nuggets of information/motivation to enhance the movie. 2w
