“People are made of stories. Our memories are not the impartial accumulation of every second we‘ve lived; they‘re the narrative that we assembled out of selected moments.”

Still finding these stories so fascinating and thought-provoking!

I liked reading this. It's short length made it perfect for an afternoon of reading. Dean Koontz is a good author. I was invested in the story from the start. I like the idea of a person going from town to town and serving justice to evil doers. This is a series I plan to continue.

You can‘t see the huge snowflakes falling or hear the sleet hitting the windows. But I think this is a great day to stay inside and read!!

Much better than I expected. At least it left me wanting more. But that‘s why I couldn‘t give it 5 ⭐️s. I just needed a little bit more. Only to know what happened up until the asteroid struck Earth. Roth is good at constructing characters—this short story is no different. I instantly was enamored with the MC. A well-crafted short story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A quick short story as I continue my way through The Lunar Chronicles. Pretty entertaining read. I must admit I'm not typically one for fantasy, but I like the way this series reads. I'm going to keep moving forward. We'll see how this plays out through 2022.

I‘m giving Veronica Roth another shot. I really liked the first book in the Divergent Series. By the third book, I was pretty done with this author. But it‘s a short story, and if I like it, I‘ll give the ARC of “Carve The Mark” that someone gave me a LONG time ago.

Listened to this audiobook and finished it in one listen! Each chapter/letter is like slowly unwrapping a surprise gift.

An epistolary short story by the flawless writer of some of my recent favorites. Two married people discover their spouses are having an affair. They become close as they write letters to deal with their heart ache. It reminded me a bit of the movie Same Time, Next Year.

“It seems as if you see me exactly as I wish to be seen. There is no greater gift than that.”

Jensol77 This was really awesome! I just listened to it. 1w
