Got this as my Amazon Reads book a few years ago and I‘m just now getting around to reading it. I love it! What a great story even as sad as it is.

I‘m only in chapter one right now but I‘m really enjoying this book! I bought it at the Charleston Aquarium last year on vacation.

This was excellent and a great starting point for HALO newbies. Even though it‘s an IP based book, the sci-fi is really well written. I enjoyed it!

NFL playoff football and a Dragonlance novel to end my day. Went to the local medieval Faire today and was itching to crack this book open.

This is a fun little book that showcases some of the smaller schools hoping to make it to the dance.

This is just a fun, vintage sci-fi. The anatomy doesn't work completely but it's a solid read nonetheless.

Jumping into this one this weekend! I won‘t finish it but I am hoping to get pretty far. I was hoping to have the first two books finished before the end of the month.

Lullaby | Chuck Palahniuk
Pickpick

Palahniuk has a tendency to use essentially the same characters in all of his book which can grow a bit old. Fortunately that‘s not the case here. He takes a simple premise and really makes it work. I‘d say this is one of his best novels that never really drags.

The memoir of a guy who made it big in the 1970s night-club scene and all the problems that came about. This book is quite interesting so far (on chapter 5). Wild times lie ahead!

In what has been a stellar series so far, we have reached a low point. That‘s not saying this book is bad but it does dip a bit in the quality. Still, as a whole, this series has been so enjoyable and I‘m off to the next one!

Sea Wife: A novel | Amity Gaige

This book was interesting enough for me to finish it but not interesting enough for me to highly recommend it. I liked the premise and I like the style of alternating perspectives but I didn‘t really care for the characters and the random, unnecessary political rants thrown in.

I watched this movie in grad school. I liked it so much I watched it again the next day with my wife. Months later I discovered it was based on a book so I bought it (was actually my first ever Nook book, back when I had a Nook). The book is different than the movie but still satisfying although the plot is sort of non-existent. Sharp and witty. I found this copy in a local used book site yesterday and snatched it up!

One of the best new Canon novels to come out. This made Dooku my favorite bad guy but I wouldn‘t even call him a bad guy. His struggle is one I think we‘d all have. Just an excellent story.

Interesting book especially in this Halloween season. It discusses the history of each object, how it got cursed, and how many people died because of it. Some objects kept my attention more than others but overall it was good. It definitely needs pictures of the objects instead if the minimalistic trichronatic illustrations it comes with though.

The Phlebotomist | Chris Panatier

This book is so amazingly written, so mind-blowing, so incredible thought out that it may be the best thing you read all year. In a dystopian future where blood is needed in large quantities, people are placed in social castes based upon their blood type. Please read this book! So good.

This book! What an incredible book about the town of Evansville, IN and the University of Evansville men‘s basketball team. In 1977 while on a plane ride to Nashville for a game, their plane crashed killing everyone on board. This book details the rise, fall, and rise of the town centered around supporting the college basketball team. OMG YES! Great book!

Great book! Quick read and better than the first one.

RamsFan1963 I agree. I thought the first book was kind of flat, but this one was much better. After all, elves always make things better. 2y

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
Pickpick

This book was recommended to me by three different people and I‘ve heard nothing but incredible things about it so I had high expectations. And while I liked the book a lot, and would recommend it, and gave it a 4/5, it fell a little flat for me. This is likely due to the expectations I had going in. Still, a solid book with some emotion.

Next up! I got this book from my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas and it‘s such a beautiful book. The reviews for it have been nothing short of spectacular and after reading the prologue, this is going to be a wild ride.

Learn about the rise and fall of dinosaurs and how evolution changed their species to adapt (or not) to environmental challenges - all told through an easy, conversational narrative.

Let‘s go!

Saturday morning reading. I read the first book in this series around 4 years ago and liked it. Not sure why I‘m just now jumping back in. I love the older Dragonlance / Forgotten Realms fantasy novels so much.
