This book is an experience and I‘m into it.
This book is an experience and I‘m into it.
I was 144 pages into this book this morning and thinking about putting it down when it became a completely insane plague novel set in space.
Which is my jam. #whydoineedtowork
I rolled my eyes SO hard when my online book club picked this for June‘s book.
BUT DEAR GOD. YOU GUYS.
This book is juicy and ridiculous and scandalous and just completely absurd and I loved it. I just couldn‘t believe the author kept fitting more ridiculous shit in. LOVED.
The BEST email to receive on a Friday at 4:45.
How @Liberty manages to crush the fantasy recommendations every single quarter with things I‘ve never heard of will always be a miracle.
This is part Milicent Patrick‘s story, part Mallory O‘Meara memoir, and part cuss words. I loved it.
Should I be studying? Yes.
Am I kinda sick and watching Greys while drinking endless amounts of coffee and reading? Also, yes.
Two hours until gym time means two hours to hang with Mallory and Milicent.
This is a fantastic novella about a crew on an oil shop who encounters something unexpected in the ocean.
Side note: there‘s only one woman in this book (she‘s pretty much a badass), but things become kind of a witch hunt against her. 🙄
BUT I loved this novella. It‘s short, scary, and to the point.
Perk - this is a kindle unlimited title.
And then there‘s this.
Who put on their @bookriot TBR form that they were really sorry, but they hadn‘t read any of last three books they suggested last quarter, so they couldn‘t review them, but they were really excited about them.
This girl. Ready for my next round of TBR even though I haven‘t read the last one.
🤫🤫 This is the best subscription I pay for friends.
Feeling pretty meh in regards to this audiobook.
This is the first in the #summerreadingguide that I‘ve been disappointed with. I don‘t necessarily believe that a book must add to a genre to be good. That‘s impossible all the time. But there‘s nothing new here.
Perks: this is currently a kindle unlimited title so I didn‘t have to pay any extra to listen to it.
Why is this book so good? I went in expecting a thriller, but what I found was a beautiful portrayal of male friendship.
This is a phenomenal historical fiction novel told by three narrators about The Huntress. The mistress of a Nazi officer who is wanted for war crimes. I adored this book. It‘s my first of Kate Quinn‘s, but please excuse me while I pick up her backlist. #summerreadingguide
Kindle daily deal alert.
Some other big ones that I passed on because I‘ve already read:
Before She Knew Him (it was great!)
The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna
The Trials of Lizzie Borden
Unmarriagable (this is on the MMD summer reading guide)
Guys, today has to be the biggest kindle daily deal day of the year. First half of what I picked up.
Wild Saturday night.
Bailey is keeping watch. ❤️
“If I‘ve told you these details about Asteroid B-612 and I‘ve given you it‘s number, it is on account of the grown-ups. Grown-ups like numbers. When you tell them about a new friend, they never ask questions about what really matters. They never ask: “What does his voice sound like?” “What games does he like best?” “Does he collect butterflies?””
Laughing about the fact that Amazon sent their Sunday Kindle deals out on Friday.
There‘s some good ones folks. Check them out.
Well this took a creepy little turn that I didn‘t expect.
Sometimes it‘s just an iPad in bed with giant font kinda morning.
I heard about this book on a podcast today and instantly wanted to read it.
Cracking up laughing over this cover though.
Took a military inspired fitness class this morning - so much running and pushups
Then I studied for 4 hours. Cleaned the house up.
Now B and I are enjoying a little sunshine and Chapter 5 of the #buddyreadWOT.
Things I absolutely don‘t have time for, but started reading today anyway.
I‘m at a loss for words over how to feel about this book.
It is horribly racist. Scarlet is a terrible character. She‘s selfish, mean, and childish.
However, this book broke my heart a little. It has a cast of characters I won‘t soon forget. It is possibly one of the most interesting epic novels I‘ve ever read. I devoured it. Despite its flaw, I‘m almost certain, when the dust in my brain settles, that this will be a favorite novel.
This is my first of Reichl‘s memoirs, but I thoroughly enjoyed learning about her time at Gourmet. I‘ll be seeking out her backlist. This also fits the #booked2019 #foodonthecover prompt. 🙌🏼
Sorry, can‘t come to work today. I finally reached Part 5 in my book and I need to stay home and finish it.
There are multiple things on Anne Bogel‘s summer reading guide that I‘ve already read and loved and others that are sitting on my shelves currently waiting to be picked up.
I‘ve decided I‘m going to make an attempt at reading everything on the list this summer. Wish me luck. 🤣
It is deeply personal to me that Helen Hoang writes love stories that involve people with autism. 🖤
I will forever love every single thing she writes.
When this book is staring at you, but you have to study for the CPA exam.
Sometimes you run and lift everyday...
And sometimes you ice and elevate because yesterday you thought that your 5 ft tall legs could sprint four 90 second runs for distance at a speed of 7.4 after a long endurance run.
Update: they can‘t.
Perks - 65% through this giant read + popcorn.
In February I bought a bunch of things that were nominated for the 2018 Nebula awards. This novelette was phenomenal.
When Iowa finally has its shit together you take advantage.
Brene Brown is my kinda church. 🖤
When I got home from the gym this morning I explained to kyle that I wanted to have a day date today.
His response - “Blow dry your hair. Let‘s go to the bookstore.” 🖤
Do you guys ever have days where you think maybe you should leave your life behind for something else? New career. New way of living. #currentfeels
I‘m needing this lesson on Grit from Angela Duckworth this week. #currentlisten
