American Gods | Neil Gaiman
post image

Only a few pages left to read of this epic masterpiece by Sir Gaiman. Stardust was just a toe dip in the pool of his prolific prose, yet this book, my friends, feels like a full body plunge. I ❤️ it!

todd I remember you picking up Stardust...the hesitation. So happy you liked it and are reading more! Try Neverwhere. Such a good read! 3y

Mehso-so

I hate to be a negative Nancy, but I didn't love the writing or any of the characters. On a side note, I have been reading about the back lash from the disability rights community, who questioned the studios decision to cast an able bodied actor and also the message. #mebeforeeuthanasia is trending

steph_hashes_tags I was lukewarm on this one to start with because it's not my preferred style of read, but it was so wildly popular I was considering giving it a try - then I read about the backlash, and honestly, it knocked it right off my TBR. 3y
Orbeck33 It looked pretty cheesy to me before I knew the topic. I have so little intention of reading it/seeing the movie that I let myself read your spoiler. 3y
Kitta I received a review copy of this and thought it was awful, unrealistic expectations for relationships and the backlash is totally justified. Ugh. 3y

H is for Hawk | Helen Macdonald

Late to the party and just getting started. Initial reaction is that I love her writing style. Will report back in a few. Ps. It's the perfect day to read in bed: dark and rainy.

The Invaders | Karolina Waclawiak

Happened upon this book in a free pile at the office and so glad I did. I read it in one sitting and can't wait to discover more of Waclawiak's work. Any suggestions?

Stardust | Neil Gaiman
Pickpick

A fun, fast read, which was great as this was my first Gaiman. I know, I know. An unlikely love story with a healthy dose of fantasy. Made me nostalgic for the ElfQuest comics I read in middle school.

todd Nail hit on the head...Gaiman=Fun escape! Happy you liked it. 4y
jesserker Such a marvelous read! 4y

Slade House | David Mitchell

That time you are so engrossed in a book that you can't put it down and can't wait to get home to finish it, but then you do put it down and forget to put it back in your bag and go home all alone.

jeff Sounds like it's good so far? 4y
todd I'm into one of those books right now 4y
