Cryptofauna | Patrick Canning

Cryptofauna by Patrick Canning is a weird out of this world novel that has hints of David Wong & Douglas Adams.

The romance was charming though I would have liked less of the drama.

Parkland | Dave Cullen

One of the most emotionally draining books I ever read was Columbine by Dave Cullen. It was brutal, heartwrenching, and important to read. Today is the anniversary of the Parkland school shooting. Today is also the day I start his new book Parkland. It's important to never forget what happened. #ParklandStrong

Currently listening to Rock Chick. Honestly, I‘m struggling a bit. I love the story and the characters are awesome/outrageous but the writing is so repetitive.

On Dublin Street | Samantha Young

This is honestly my favorite romance that I have read. If you haven't read Samantha Young, you're truly missing out. She quickly became one of my favorite authors and has yet to disappoint me. The characters, the plot, literally everything about this book is beautiful.

This book was phenomenal. The research that Michelle & her editors put into this was simply impressive. I was constantly in awe while reading this book. This is probably one of the top true crime novel that I have read. Michelle has a way to pull you into the story and leave you wanting to continue on her hunt (which thankfully we don't have to do now that he is caught).

Well... who needs a good nights rest anyway. So far this is fascinating and completely horrifying.

Time to finally read this book. I hope it is as good as everyone says. I‘m always hesitant when it comes to mysteries. I can only hope it is a true psychological thriller!

I just finished my 39th book this year! Falling for Mr. Slater by Kendall Day (Grey) is hilarious, steamy & touching. This earn 4 1/2 Caffeinated Stars! If you like hilarious characters & an interesting plot line you should give it a read when it is released on May 25th!

I really wanted to love this book. It basically had everything that I could have possibly wanted, a hot and outrageous male lead and a sassy spitfire woman but unfortunately this book just didn't jive with me. I never felt connected to the characters and for me that is a must. It felt very over the top and not realistic or even plausible. The chemistry seemed forced and I just wasn't that impressed. I wasn't impressed but it wasn't awful

So I officially finished this book. I listened to the audiobook and I have to say, I‘m not that impressed. The book dragged on & honestly I felt like John Berendt went on random tangents throughout the book. I enjoyed the parts relating to the true crime aspect of the novel but I felt like I was reading an armchair travel novel most of the time.

I‘m not sure what I think of this. It‘s a book club book & I‘m still not sure if what the point of this book is.

I truly thought that I would be bored with this book but it is amazing to hear what Scott Kelly has gone through. It is inspirational in a “I will never be that motivated” way.

Have you ever read a book that speaks to you on so many levels you cannot help but smile and cry that it is over? I just had that experience. I am a broken ball of emotions right now simply because I am no longer in that world.

Ender's Game | Orson Scott Card

The characters though young, were interesting to read about and I think that many people will be able to relate in some sort of way with one of the Wiggins kids.

For those of you who are on the fence with this book, I will say to give it a shot. Sometimes you really can separate the art from the artist.

iread2much Did you read the original version or the one he rewrote? I loved the original, but never read the rewrite 2y
CaffeinatedFae @iread2much I think it was the rewrite. It is the anniversary copy of it. 2y
iread2much Ah. Too bad. I think he really ruined a lot of the story by trying to make it Uber Christian through his rewrite. I guess he wasn‘t pleased with the subtle messages and decided he needed to beat people over the head 😅 2y
CaffeinatedFae @iread2much ha ha ha! Now I need to look up the differences! When will authors learn than subtlety is key. Lol. 2y

I am surprised with how much I am enjoying this book. I tend to find most of the dystopian novels annoying in the fact that they borrow so many elements from other books but this is pretty good. I admit, I am struggling with how young Ender is.

As someone who used to work at Barnes & Noble, we too hate the movie tie in covers. We want you to find your next favorite book or author. We love books. Don't judge us as cookie cutter employees because we work at a bookstore chain.

I just finished the running the midnight release party. I cannot believe how many people came. I am just so excited. I think I might cry.

rogueitup It was (relatively) organized insanity at my store! We (cafe) made more that day than we ever have, even during holiday. And customers were so sweet with each other... A wonderful, wonderful night ^.^ 3y

Honestly, how do you even put into words how much a series means to you? This was the best I could do.

I am currently doing a rereading of the Harry Potter books. Honestly, I struggle with the later books. I struggle not because I hate them but because I hate all of my emotions. Damn you J.K. Rowling for making these characters so amazing & lovable. #HarryPotter #DamnTheseEmotions

TheWellReadOwl Even though you know what will happen, you relive the pain. Every. Time. 😩 3y
Peddler410 Finished reading this to my 7 year old today. Chapter 27... I teared up, she said, "I tried to make the tears come. I'm really sad but I don't know how to make them come." The reread is very different for me because .... well, Snape? 3y
CaffeinatedFae @TheWellReadOwl it is crazy how much it hurts to reread it. It is amazing/crazy how much it hurts even after 10 or so years. 3y
CaffeinatedFae @Peddler410 I am on chapter 26 and it is hard for me to pick it up again simply because I don't want to reach chapter 27. 3y

@Liberty these are some of my favorite bookmarks. I made them while I was a manager at Barnes & Noble. We played "Romance book vs. SciFi book." I still use mine when ever I read a physical book.
