“An ordinary town transformed by a mysterious illness that triggers perpetual sleep.” This book is amazing, i was instantly transported to this town. I couldn‘t put it down over the weekend. It‘s not about the how or why of the virus so that maybe aggravating to some people. It‘s more about the characters and what they are going through as the town goes under. 📚 📖

I can‘t keep up w any over the weekend reading challenges w 2 young boys. But I am always squeezing in good books. Up next...

rretzler It won‘t be long before you can. I used to have 2 small boys - now I have a 17 yo and a 14 yo. Don‘t worry about the reading, enjoy the boys while you can. 😝 We read together every night until my 17 yo started HS and I miss that a lot! 1mo

I‘ve love all of his books so far. This follow up to Beartown is no exception. His writing style follows a certain cadence that is beautifully told.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I was drawn in and then it drags. I questioned not finishing this book multiple times, until it finally picks up and you start caring about the story again. I‘ll be reading more from this author just not for a long while...500 pages is enough.

The story of a strong woman in the tech industry. But then something goes wrong with her and the product. It wanted to be women‘s fiction then sci-fi then back to women‘s...I couldn‘t keep up. Just okay.

I‘m just not that into you. I was 167 pages in when I decided to give it up. The main character Miryem‘s story is the most interesting but the book keeps flipping around to different POVs. It‘s hard to remember each thread. Sorry #BOTM you seem to be failing a lot lately.

Cinfhen 😿😾 9mo
TheBookKeepers Totally random, but would you be interested in trading books with me? I‘d love to own this one & I browsed ur TBR and saw that you have The Thirteenth Tale on there. I own that one & thought maybe you‘d be interested in swapping via the mail? 😊 8mo

A book that wants to be big little liars but just can‘t keep up. I like how it started. The middle was meh. The end was okay. Read on my new kindle oasis which I‘m so so on. Now having book ennui and don‘t know what to read next.

Victoriahoperose I just read this also and wasn‘t impressed. Same feelings that you have. I‘m reading the woman in the window right now and it‘s very good if you‘re looking for a page turner! 13mo

@mrsamandahood The little house series cemented my love of reading in grammar school. It gave me an escape when my friends weren‘t so nice or my parents were fighting. It‘s my own time and own space to get away.

mrsamandahood I‘m so sorry to hear you had to go through some tough times. I‘m glad you had a book to lean on during those times. As funny as it sounds, the Twilight Saga was that for me. Thank you for entering. ❤️ 13mo

Interesting concept. Tom and Jen are brought together by AI and hilarity ensues. Really it starts off interesting then okay then you just want it to end. Of course told in first person paragraphs.
