Strange Weather | Joe Hill
This post contains spoilers

Pickpick

I have only read the first two novellas in the book. The first one was fantastic. The second one was.... well I have mixed emotions. It was a very emotional read and honestly I was sick and angry over the last chapter. I had trouble sleeping last night because of it. Still, I love Joe Hill and he is one of my favorite writers. I‘m moving on to something else, then I will come back to read the second half.

Soubhiville I had a really hard time with the second one too. It hit too close to home with all the shootings in America. But the other three were more what I was expecting and were great! 1w

Lazy Sunday reading. I love a good novella when I can‘t decide what to read next. If I am not interrupted (ha!) I can finish this in one sitting. 💙

New comic book. I‘m not familiar with the writer of the comic but it is illustrated by the fabulous Gabriel Rodríguez (he worked with Joe Hill on the Locke and Key series) Plus I love all of the stories of H.G. Wells. I‘m curious to see how this adaptation will go.

My bookstagram post for today. This is the last day of vacation and I‘m feeling a little under the weather. I picked this up off my shelf and I‘m almost done. I read Pet Sematary earlier this week. Who needs to wait for fall to read horror? Not me! 😁💀

Took a trip to my favorite comic book store today. I could have gotten the graphic novels cheaper on Amazon (except the Wonder Woman which was 40% off) but I had cash on hand and enjoyed shopping. I like the idea of keeping locally owned businesses in business. ❤️❤️❤️

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane

In the past week or so I blazed through Lock Every Door, Saga vol 7, Gideon Falls 2, Black Hammer 1, and American Predator. Maybe I‘m having a book hangover but I can‘t seem to get into this one right now. Maybe I will set it aside for now. Veronica Mars has been released on Hulu (one week early!!) so I will concentrate that for now. 🙂

TheLudicReader I picked this book club for my September book club. I hope it‘s not a dud. (I haven‘t read it yet.) On the other hand....Veronica Mars. I am totally obsessed. I am limiting myself to one episode at a time so I don‘t blow through the season 4 too quickly. 3mo
DeeLew @TheLudicReader I was going to try that too but I‘m already on episode 4. 🤣 I LOVE Veronica Mars and I am so glad she‘s back. ❤️❤️ 3mo
TheLudicReader @DeeLew I just finished episode 4 last night. Love, love, love. Have no idea why I didn‘t watch this back in the day. 3mo

I was thinking about a lot of the books I have read in the last few years and it occurred to me that there seems to be a new trend in storytelling. Is it just me or does it seem that a lot of writers create characters that are unlikeable? I have always loved the feeling of falling in love with characters or identifying with them and caring about what happens to them. Closing the book and being sad because I will miss them. Continued in comments..

Megabooks Yes, it does seem like there are more unlikable characters. 4mo
DeeLew But lately I have read several books where I either really disliked the characters or I was indifferent to what happened to them (as is the case in the tagged book). Is this a thing? Creating unlikeable characters with no few, if any redeeming qualities? Or have I become jaded? 🤔 4mo
DeeLew @Megabooks I thought it was just me. Lol 4mo

Yesterday I posted a photo of my latest copy of The Outsiders. I felt like it was strictly for adding to my collection.

I‘ve lost track of how many copies I have of this book. I will never forget the first time I read it. I was home sick and this was the assigned reading for my Novels class. I read it in one sitting and started all over and read it again. By the time I got back to school I practically had the entire novel memorized. Even though there have been many books I have loved, this one will always hold a special place in my heart. I have multiple editions.

This book is just okay so far. It is definitely a page turner but the characters are mostly unlikeable. I‘m hoping it gets better. It gets mixed reviews so we will see. In the meantime I am enjoying a beautiful first day of my staycation reading outside. ☀️🌸🍹🌳🌸📚
