Such a great book. Gave some really helpful tips that make a difference. Not about dieting at all. I followed some of the tips and I feel so much better about food already.

Bk1 in my #JanuaryBookHaul I loved The Monster Of Florence & this was highly recommended. In 2012, Preston joined a group of filmmakers using lidar to map the terrain under the rainforest canopy in Honduras. In a remote valley, they found the outlines of an undiscovered city which they then journeyed into the forest to find. Battling torrential rains, quickmud & snakes, it wasn‘t until they got home they found their tragedy had just begun.

I think i read this already. Lol..This weeks audiobook while hauling the kid to swim practice. Nonfiction book about the rediscovery of an ancient civilization in the jungles of Honduras, the team that rediscovered it, what they think happened to it and how history could repeat itself. Covers everything from history to politics to archaeology and tropical disease. 👇

Jenken1998 My 16 yo son who is interested in all of the above enjoyed listening. He has an interest in biology and botany and thought a jungle expedition sounded fun. Until the author describes various tropical and parasitic diseases. He now believes he will work state side in a lab. 🤣 2w
Bookzombie Yes, books like this definitely make you think the lab would be safer bet. 😂 2w

I quite enjoyed watching this category sway back and forth for a winner. It was quite touch and go between this and The Wicked King but in the end Rainbow Rowell persisted and Wayward Son takes home this years award for YA Fantasy/Sci-Fi.

Mr. Preston was part of an expedition to find a “lost city” in Honduras in 2015. This book deals with the unbelievable and often dauting realities of modern archeology. He doesn‘t shy away from the politics and the controversies surrounding it, the impact that the expedition had on his health and other members of his team. It‘s a fascinating hystorical analysis of the area and the terrible impact of disease over entire civilisations. A great read.

Another great instalment in the series. The mystery is interesting though I found myself more curious about their own lives than the murder. I hadn't figured out the killer which is always a good thing. The story itself is steady and detailed. The ending was really good and left me wanting another story. I need to know what will happen with Ruth and Nelson, I'm still not sure how I want it to finally end. I love Cathbad. 4*

Crazeedi Love this series! I'm through it and waiting for next installment!! 4w

Mehso-so

The idea for this book sounded interesting, but it was hard to get into. The first 1/3 of the book felt like a forced introduction to the characters. Clearly there were features the author wanted us to know, but they were explained simply by repeating them.

The last maybe 50 pages made up for the slowness of the beginning. The writing paired with certain themes make it less likely I will read the next in the series.
