When I started I was very reluctant and found it not very good.
Then...it started and it seemed like a small snowball you push off a hill. It grew and grew and grew. By the end...my heart is very full and I know that I'll be counting TO 7, for the rest of my life.

It‘s been sluicing rain all day and I‘ve been feeling a bit doldrumy (although I love rain), so I picked this out of my TBR pile and started it. Why not read about mixed blessings while having mixed feelings? 😆

Strange and wonderful, with absolutely GORGEOUS illustrations and an inside look into the world of Auri. This novella might not be for everyone (as Rothfuss warns at the start of the book) but it was definitely for me!

The Bride Collector | Ted Dekker

For the first time since coming here, Brad considered the possibility that he had entered a world where the minds were not sick when compared with his, simply greater - and learning to cope. Like Paradise, they were so powerful they required special systems that lesser minds, like his, did not. #teddekker #thebridecollector #mentalillness #gifted #greatminds #misunderstood #mentallyillgenius

4.5 🌟
I am officially a Murderbot fan! This book packs so much into just a few pages.
Its a quick read that will have you glued to the pages and screaming for more. Murdotbot, just might have a heart and I want to see it develop. And see what type of trouble he can get himself into.

shanaqui I juuuust reread this today! I love Murderbot's snarky “aarrgggh people noooo“ reactions.

(Sidenote: I find it really odd when people call Murderbot “he“ -- or she! I'm fairly sure it states pronouns as “it“, and I've managed to log those even though so very few *people* use that for themselves. Gave me a jolt just now reading this review/comments. 😅)

LibrarianRyan @shanaqui your right. You are very right. It is an It. It‘s odd how we automatically gender. Especially when he talks about having no sex parts because he‘s not a f$&@ bot. 5mo
Saw629 Would you recommend this book to someone who peruses sci-fi books, but isn‘t huge into them? 5mo
LibrarianRyan @Saw629 I think I would. It takes place on a Tera firma but it‘s more an action/thriller. Murderbot is a security guard who has a job to do. Plus it‘s short. It isn‘t bogged down like many sci-fi are. Researchers are on a new world determining what it is, so the author doesn‘t have to delve too much into the world. Plus it‘s a great character study. It‘s easy to forget murderbot isn‘t a “man” because it feels like one. 5mo
Cinfhen Well done 🙌🏻 5mo

This book just nuzzles up under your skin. It is clear that Sloan has dealt with loss in her poignant explanations of the experience. She is able to intricately weave this big experience with humor, love, and a lightness that is heartwarming. I already started recommending it to all of my seventh grade students. Well done.
