The Poisonwood Bible | Barbara Kingsolver

Pickpick

FINAL for the #maymakeup readathon! I never thought I‘d make it past 24 hours in any readathon, so I‘m happy with this total! 🤗

Started: 2 books
Finished: 3 books
-The Poisonwood Bible
This book was amazing!! I loved the characters. It was entertaining and enlightening. The writing style was beautiful—it often felt more like poetry than prose.

FINALLY was able to finish a book during #maymakeup. I LOVE this series. Although I rarely binge read series (usually put a book or two In between), I‘m thinking of jumping right into “Two Dark Reigns”. I have a lot of feels happening right now.

Lord of the Flies | Golding William
post image

Day 2 of the #maymakeup challenge! Time at about 15 hrs 45 mins.

Finished Lord of the Flies today. I‘ve been meaning to read it for a while, and I‘m glad I‘ve finished it. Depressing, but an interesting commentary on civilization and human nature.
#bookishbingo: Set on an Island

Also listened to The Poisonwood Bible and started the Career of Evil.

So sorry that I created the #maymakeup readathon and then fell into radio silence. Yesterday was super tough, as my fiancé was fired from a job that we were both super excited about him getting, and I‘ve fallen a bit ill due to the stress and upset of it all. That said, not reading was done yesterday and for much of today, so I‘ve adjusted my goal.

Avanders Sorry it‘s been so rough 😔😔 2mo
Jess_Franzino @Avanders Thanks. We‘ll get through it. It‘s just a big blow right now because we were so excited about what a big change this job would mean financially. He can find another. But still ☹️ 2mo

The last lecture | Randy Pausch, Jeffrey Zaslow

Day 1 for the #maymakeup challenge. I was not expecting to start out this strong, but I‘ll take any head-start I can get!
I finished The Last Lecture. It was short but thought-provoking, and it had an enormous energy and drive to it that I admired. I also decided to try the #bookishbingo this month, so I‘ll be using this book for Character in Therapy (it‘s probably a stretch, but I‘m counting chemotherapy).
Other two books shown are in progress!

So I LOVE that I've only read the first two of the Bosch books because that means I have tons more to look forward to. This one was terrific.

Almost at 4 1/2 hours for #MayMakeup. Not too bad for the first day. And this book checked off 3 prompts for #MayScavengerHunt (300+ pages, someone dies, and part of a series). Now on to the newest Firefly book.
