Enjoying an unexpected snow day by reading and cuddling with Chloe. #booked2019 #IrishAuthor

mcipher Wait, is your Chloe a tuxedo kitty too?!? 😆 9mo
AWahle @mcipher Not really. She's grey with white on her face and socks. She is also a bit of a pain. (edited) 9mo
mcipher All cats are! Someone at work today asked how my cats are and I told him terrible, but that‘s what you sign up for when you get cats. Disdainful glares, shredded furniture, late-night yowling... 😻😹 9mo

Sleeping Beauties | Stephen King, Owen King

Ugh. Please don't bring me a book to borrow unless I request it because then I feel obligated to finish it. I am halfway through and I just don't care, but the coworker who brought it in for me expects to talk about it. There are so many other things I'd rather be reading.

LeahBergen Exactly! Ugh. 😑 10mo
Tamra Oh, I hate that too. It‘s also part of the reason I don‘t schedule books or have goals. I‘m a mood reader. (edited) 10mo
Weaponxgirl Oh I had someone do this to me last year. It was a self published book by her father in law and a thriller of the sort I‘d never read. Read the first page “moody man, rough, rugged blah blah blah” then I randomly opened to the middle and read “she sighed as he played with her flaps” I couldn‘t stop myself from cracking up right there! 😬 (I didn‘t read the book) 10mo

AWahle @Weaponxgirl Oh my! I think I would have asked if she read it and then showed her that passage! That's the most cringeworthy sentence I've seen in a while. 10mo
AWahle @Tamra I still do challenges, but in my own time & I mostly fill them with books already on my TBR. I'm a bit of a moody reader too - that's why I can have multiple books going at a time. And don't give me a 700 page book unless I asked for it! 😶 10mo
Weaponxgirl @AWahle she hadn‘t read it as she isn‘t a reader so assumes that because I read quickly that you can throw any old book at me and I‘ll get straight to it. I read the passage out loud to them. 😂 10mo

An interesting take on the vaccine/no vaccines debate. What happens when compromised herd immunity opens the door to a new form of measles that has devastating effects on the survivors? I don‘t want to give too much away, but it is so easy to see how some of the uglier behavior in this book could happen. I love Mira Grant (Seanan McGuire) and the attention to detail she gives to the science in her horror stories A great start to 2019!

Cherie Priest is great at creepy! Denise finds a comic hidden in the attic of the house her folks are fixing up in NOLA. Pages from the comic are interspersed w/the prose. Bad things start to happen when Denise reads the comic. I love the attention to detail on the book cover and jacket. Tara O'Connor is one of my favorite comic writers/illustrators and I love Cherie Priest. Double win for me!

Hard Times | Charles Dickens
post image
Pickpick

I'm revising the view I've held on this book for 30 years. I hated it when I had to read it in college. But you have to admire a character who throws shade like Mrs. Sparsit. My new thought is that Dickens is best performed because I thoroughly enjoyed the BBC audiobook. This was my "Read a Book You Hated" for Bookriot's #ReadHarder2018 challenge.

I took the quiz twice because I couldn't decide if I wanted to Smash More Patriarchy or Take More Baths. Both results are good, but I really need to work on my TBR. Diversity in my reading is really pretty good.
https://bookriot.com/2018/12/05/reading-resolution-quiz

mcipher I totally went with baths and I do need to read more diversity. I‘m bad at that. 11mo
AWahle @mcipher Ideally I would take more baths after smashing. Of the books I've finished this year 62% were by women, but I do need to get my # by POC higher than 20%. I didn't keep track of whether an author was LGBTQ or not. 11mo
DGRachel I read over 160 books this year and this quiz had the nerve to tell me I need to read more. Not more diversely, just more. 😒 11mo
AWahle @DGRachel Huh! Are you actually sleeping and spending time with your family? ? If you answered 100+ to that question, the result "Read More" should automatically be discarded. IMHO 11mo

Started this on the drive home tonight. Very disappointed that Mr. Pollan began by incorrectly saying the bee working in his garden was a “he.” “A bumblebee would probably would probably also regard himself as a subject in the garden and the bloom he‘s plundering for its drop of nectar as an object. But we know this is just a failure of his imagination.” Sigh. My 7 year old neighbor would be happy to explain that the worker bees are all female.

This was my favorite type of book when I was a tween - a curse, a family mystery to solve and a brave, intelligent narrator. Ruth has been sent to live with her Great Aunt Doll in Newfoundland for the Summer. She meets her cousin Ruby and learns that both their mothers (twins) died on the same day. The girls learn about a family curse that always leaves the new generation of twin daughters motherless at a young age. Can they solve the mystery?

Traveling to the opposite coast for work means lots of reading. Finished this on the flight to Baltimore. I was interested enough to finish this story about the "Haves" and the issues they face in the Argentinian financial collapse of the 90's-00's but I'm not going to rush out and tell anyone else to read it. This fulfills my book in translation/translated by a woman for the Reading Woman Challenge.

While this look at life in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban was fascinating, there has been a lot of controversy about the author endangering the women she wrote about. My problem was her wanting Afghanistan to bend to her way of life. She complains that Xmas was just like any other winter day and wants her husband to be more affectionate. She became a 2nd wife, but is hurt when the 1st wife gets pregnant. Sigh. It was still interesting.

CouronneDhiver I remember enjoying this book. 😊 1y
AWahle I didn't not like it. The articles about the controversies probably color my view a bit. And her (and her husband's) unwillingness to meet each other half way was frustrating. 1y

So I'm a little older than the kids in this story - but I still like the '80's setting. I've finished volume 2 and am still deciding how much I like it. Rick Remender has a tendency to go for the easy tropes, but there are great bits like this scene.

The worst thing about this book is that it is the 1st in a trilogy and isn't even out until Oct. so I have to wait a minimum of a year to find out what happens next. Yumeko, a half Kitsune girl, narrates alternating chapters with Tatsumi, the demon slayer of the Shadow Clan. She is protecting a scroll he is seeking for his master. This book was exciting & full of surprises. That said, I would have loved a glossary. Does anyone do those anymore?

Quick! How do you say the name of this book? If you, like the narrator, say Fahrenheit 4-5-1 instead of four fifty one, we're going to have issues. But that aside, I really enjoyed this list of lists and notes to wonderful & awful books. Suggestion: do not listen to audio on CD while driving. If you use Overdrive or Libby, you can bookmark every time she mentions a book you'll want to remember. And she will. Many times.
