Here‘s my October #Bookly Report. Exciting month of reading, but I didn‘t get as much done as I had planned. There‘s always November!

This was a unique story- there are elements of science fiction, fantasy, and action, and the heroes are septuagenarians. I thought it was well-paced, and I loved the connections to The Dark Tower and It. I stayed up past my bedtime to finish!

Along for the Ride | Sarah Dessen

As someone in her mid 20s, I have NO idea how this was my first time reading a Sarah Dessen book. I am HOOKED! This coming of age novel never had a boring moment. It was perfectly paced with just the right amount of character development.
I resonated with Dessen‘s thoughts about summer, which she noted at the end of the book (& which I attached above). The nostalgia of a high school summer is a precious feeling which Dessen captured magically. 5/5

This one pretty much explains itself

So, you have a woman who never sleeps, a woman dealing with infertility, some very unreliable narrators and a secluded carriage house on the property of a large house that has a third floor overrun with squirrels. Written in 2 time periods, I was intrigued but ultimately let down by the ending .

I found this one interesting primarily for Russell's pre-pandemic take on the public's reaction to a novel illness and the ethical issues surrounding finding a cure/treatment. There's also a bit of an exploration of where one finds a moral compass in a world (or at least a culture) with maleable morality. What are the rules if there are no rules? Kind of bleak.

Not a horror, not really, but definately an unsettling thought. Dying from being unable to sleep sounds pretty awful. Offering up my infant as a weekly sleep donor to prevent that doesn't sound too great either.

Bookworm54 Have you heard of fatal familial insomnia? We learnt about it briefly at uni when we were covering prions. A scary thought! I read this book on it later and it was really good 14mo
Andrew65 Great 👏👏👏 14mo
night_shift @Bookworm54 whoa, no! That book sounds interesting, thanks! 14mo

Appropriately named book for 5 am as hubby gets ready for work. In my sleepy state, it‘s enough to enjoy the beautiful pictures. #childrensbook
