I had so much fun reading this one, but since I finished I can only think that Data (from star Trek) is a Sexbot (according to Murderbot's definition of one) and I can't stop laughing!

I hated this book. It starts as a badly written The handmaid's tale alternate universe fan fiction and it just gets worst.
Awful ending!

Cinfhen Ugh!!! That‘s disappointing ☹️I bought this a few months ago on a kindle deal 1mo

I liked this one, but I didn't love it.
It reads as everyday life Chronicles with a mystery to spice things up...

I always heard awlfull things about this book and had a vague memory of the movie being so boring (but it had Daniel Day-Lewis in It) that I never found the courage to read this.
I was wrong.

I read this for a blind box book club.
I didn't like it very much, but almost everyone loved it.
It's about revolution and exile, with some chapters of non fiction (the best parts of the book and I hate non fiction).

I love Hellboy but I never read all the graphic novels.
Got the first omnibus for a great price during a Amazon sale and finally read the beginning of it!
It was so much fun!

Not a great book, kind of entertaining, a funny character that throws a lot of science at your face, just like the Martian.
Got annoyed with all the jokes about the female main character being a out her sex life.

Read this one in January, but was not inspired.
Quick read, food plot, the middle was boring, great ending, but now enough to save the book.

A Crazy little book about an orphan Spanish young woman who goes to live with her crazy family so she can study.
You hate and want to kill most of them at some point, but you also recognize yourself and your family in some scale.
It's like reading an early Almodóvar movie 🤣

A Casa Dos Pesadelos | Marcos Debrito

A Brazilian horror book about monsters that are not really monsters (or monsters are real but not supernatural).
The end was obvious, but the worst part was the huge amount of adjectives, like he wrote a short story and had to put more words so it could be published as a book.
At least it was short and a quick read. The plot was interesting.

A book about a group of spoiled teenagers that decide to kill themselves in a Russian roulette game.
Nice dialogues, fast paced, several point of views.
This is not a bad book, but kind of cliche and has a huge plot hole in the ending, but it is a book by a Brazilian contemporary author, with a story that is atemporal and that can happen anywhere.

Peril at End House | Agatha Christie

A bumpy start, but I think that everything that really annoyed me in the first half makes sense after the ending.
Found out some of the plot, but not the murderer.
It was really good and the second half was fast and after the solution you see that there were clues everywhere!

Took me too long to read this one, not because it is bad, it is amazing really, but I think because I'm scared that I won't recognize the characters I love from now one. This is the last one written by Robert Jordan.
