Upgrade: A Novel | Blake Crouch
post image
Mehso-so

My physical and audio holds came in at the same time so I ended up listening to this one. It was fine but not great. I adored Dark Matter and Recursion so maybe my expectations were too high? The narrator was good and I‘ve liked him before so I don‘t think it was just the audio. The story didn‘t feel as intricate and fleshed out as other works I‘ve read by Crouch.

Thank you guys for all the bday wishes yesterday! It was a lovely low key day with my family. The hubs and I have been together 14 yrs and I can count on one hand the times he‘s gotten me books. Yesterday was one of them! He got me the whole series bc we‘re watching the show right now. He felt bad bc he could only get used ones in time- like I cared! :) he does not understand the way of the bookworm lol!

Hubby decided he wanted to give GoT a try (I‘ve never read it either) so not much night reading has happened as we‘ve been watching that. Bonus he can‘t watch ahead bc he needs me to help him keep the story lines straight 😂

He had an unexpected 18 hr shift after only 5 hrs off so tonight i‘m curling up with these goons and an arc :)

We‘re still recovering today and not back to normal for him yet. Mom‘s running on very little sleep so reading the tagged book and doing a face mask before early bed.

Bailedbailed

After some good advice about there being too many good books in the world, I‘m bailing. This is a total train wreck. I had better writing skills in the 6th grade. So many unbelievable plot points even 5 chapters in: you go to the same school and have never seen each other when you‘re in the same French club?! Astral projection is just no big deal? And a mob boyfriend at 16 in WISCONSIN?! Ummm no.

Another library book for the win. Also contemplating buying this one at some point. This was actually an accidental reserve as I was looking for Llama Llama (we love those!) books. Larry is a llama who like glam and dance. The lesson was subtle in the words less so in the pictures and made my heart smile. So so good! Perfect Pride Month read! #pridemonth #ally #teachthemyoung

Anyone like this? I‘m not for several reasons, one of which is that if the series is already 8 plus books deep I find it overwhelming and am less likely to start. I find it frustrating bc some of my favorite series have ended prematurely bc there wasn‘t enough interest at the time of publication for the series to be “lucrative” enough to continue publishing.
Do you worry about series ending early for lack of interest? Genuinely curious.

Avanders Same! I definitely don‘t need a series to be done before diving in… but yes, I also worry, esp when it‘s really good, about it not continuing!! Glad that‘s not true for Sanderson 😁😁 2mo
