The follow up to The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet this one focuses on two characters from the first book. These books are more character driven than action and are perfect for people who don‘t like hard sci-fi, I love this world, 4 ⭐️

Cyril, will take you on a journey about growing up living in a society that hates his sexuality, and trying to fit in with the ‘norms.‘ let me tell ya this book gave me all the feels. the way this is written you feel you are growing up with him, reading his dairy, seeing through his eyes, facing his struggles, feeling his pain.
So beautiful written I could not put this one down I laughed and I cried and I loved. #bibliophile #lgbtbook #review

Everything just fell flat the plot the characters the unnatural dialogue it had so much potential but it just doesn‘t deliver this is one example of when men badly write female characters, she is super cringe.
So many irrelevant things included throughout I could really go on. I really pushed through this one but I was left majorly disappointed. And The more I think of this book the more it irritates me.

A novel of mesmerising beauty a story of danger, love, and loss, It packs a lot into Such a small book. Obviously there are plenty of vampires thrown in for good measure.
Such a beautifully dark read that holds you to the last page! I could go on.
If you‘re a fan of the vampire genre and have not read this, then read it, it‘s perfect. 5 ⭐️

the first part was such a good read plot wise, & the build up to the crazy moth face.
The second part I feel was not as strong as the first part & I found myself still not liking or rooting for any of the main characters.
The ending was an ok ending, I will say it didn‘t feel like a regular Stephen King book. However i enjoyed this one despite its faults.

Coburn likes blood. The Zombies like brains. He‘s smart, they‘re not. But they do outnumber him by about a million to one. Now he‘s starving, nocturnal, and more pissed-off than usual. not only has he got to find human survivors, but now he has to protect them. Think the walking dead with Damon from VD and you have the Double Dead. Full of the usual Wendig laugh out loud one liners and plot twists 5 ⭐️

I read this in in two days, it is a fast addictive read. I really loved the 80s vibe and pop culture references being an 80s kid myself. I‘m not a massive fan of the exorcism genre, so if you‘re you‘ll probably like this more than me. This is more YA than a horror, so keep that in mind if you‘re not a YA fan. All the feels 4⭐️

I'm a fan of dystopian and apocalyptic reads, & here are two of my favourites. The fireman, if you find the dragon scale on you body there is a chance you will burst into flames.
THWATG is told from the eyes of a young girl who has never left the school where she lives, and it's such a brilliant read.
Any recommendations for this genre?

I started & finished this yesterday. It's a fast read. The first half is Paul writing about his time as a neurosurgeon.

Author Nnedi Okorafor creates a rich and compelling story, Who Fears Death. This is a post-apocalyptic journey, with themes of racial and gender oppression. Focuses on issues about religion, creation, abortion, & children of rape. A journey that teaches lessons on how ignorance, & prejudice can kill. But how friendship and family are key. A beautiful read 4/5 #review #booknerd #bookworm #bookgeek #biblioohile #bookreview #bookdragon #loveroread

I enjoyed it, but man he's annoying af in parts. To the point of cringe. The first 200 pgs were mainly about women & drugs. I'm aware it's suppose to be sex drugs, rock n roll, but it just felt it was only sex & drugs. if it had continued like that I would have rated this a 2. However, it thankfully got more interesting. If you're fan it's worth a read, & he's definitely lived an interesting life. 4⭐️ #memoir #bookgeek #review #bibliophile #funko

[DELETED] 3803335244 Oh I had no idea they are graphic novels! Lol 😂 ok, not that series for buddy read then.. 🤓 2y
Grim_Reader I suppose not, but your boys will like them. 😊 @ForeverNerdy I'm going have a look what books I already have and if you have it it's fate. 2y

My Friend Dahmer | Derf Backderf
post image
Mehso-so

This was just ok & I didn't love the art, or any of the characters I know your not suppose to like Dahmer, but they were all dull! I think even I would have ended up a serial killer if I was at that school with them! If you know your serial Killers you aren't going to learn anything new here. TBH I feel it's a cheap shot at 'knowing' Dahmer. I could of wrote this, anyone who has the internet could have collected this info. 2⭐️ #review #booknerd

[DELETED] 3803335244 I went through a read all about serial killers phase in high school, it was fascinating, creepy, & made me totally paranoid. 😂 This doesn't sound good. I recommend reading about The Happy Face killer if you are interested. He's very interesting only because he was a truck driver & it happened in a lot of states across America. Weird how murder can make you famous?!? 😟 Scary too 😳 2y
Grim_Reader This is ok for someone who doesn't really know anything about Dahmer. Others might like the drawing style. It was a bit dragged out. 😏Thanks for the tip, don't think I've read any on him. @ForeverNerdy 2y

Dark Matter | Blake Crouch

Buddy read with @ForeverNerdy which we both loved! My first book by Crouch, which I read in 2sittings, We could not put it down. A fast paced story that does not stop until the last page. An interesting concept that really makes you think, &Crouch really sells this idea to the point I actually believed it! I did have a few issues hence the 4⭐️but overall it's a superb read. #bookreview #bibliophile #booknerd #bookgeek #review #scifi #bookish

[DELETED] 3803335244 I totally agree with you! Plus I'm loving your Sally funko! I only have Dorbz in Nightmare Before Christmas! Can you believe it's almost Halloween! Yes!!! 2y
Grim_Reader 🎃My favourite time of year! 🙌🏻 @ForeverNerdy what's the next read? 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Mine too! Do you have The Madman's Daughter? Right after I finish The Island of Dr. Moreau, I'm reading it. Been on my TBR list for so long! Or something else? Maybe a scary Sept read? 2y

Grim_Reader I don't have that, I can see if it's something I'd like, and get it. I can do scary but I am doing a read along in September the Stand 🙈 2y
Grim_Reader @ForeverNerdy forgot tag you in that ☝️😂 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Oh poop, maybe we will just do another in October? Keep your reading block free for a week in October & we will do another then. I have lots to read with my kids in Sept for school, so that works out. 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Plus I don't want you to have to buy a book. 2y
Grim_Reader Ok October it is, @ForeverNerdy I'm sure we both have something on our shelfs. 2y

My first Oden & I enjoyed it, i liked the magic system but would of liked more. Loved the fight scenes and the characters especially Grimnir, his backstory was interesting. A story of revenge and growth, I recommend this one. However, religion is prominent in the first part, it does fade out as the story progresses, This didn't bother me but thought I'd put that out there 4⭐️ #grimdark #bookgeek #booknerd #bibliophile #bookreview #review #reader

Did you catch the first episode of Mr. Mercedes? As a fan of the book series I was relieved. It was so good and I'm loving the casting choices. 👌🏻

I picked this up as someone said it's like PLL and they weren't wrong. This was a quick read, which I read in two sittings. Mainly because I couldn't put it down. I tried to guess who had done it all the way through, but I'm clearly know detective.😂 I'm hoping this gets made into a tv series, I for one would be all over it. It's PLL meets Gossip Girl 4/5⭐️ 👌🏻#bookreview #ya bibliophile #reader #bookgeek #booknerd #review #bookish #bookworm 🖤

[DELETED] 3803335244 What is PLL? 2y
Grim_Reader Pretty little liars Kris it's a tv series. 😊This is a good ya contemporary. @ForeverNerdy 2y

This is my favourite graphic novel series, i can't really review it as I feel it would spoil it. Imo It's best going into this blind, if you haven't read this I highly recommend it. All three have been 5 ⭐️ for me. The storyline is awesome, the characters are fantastic, the art work is phenomenal. 5/5 go read it! 🙌🏻#graphicnovel #review #bookreview #epicread #faveseries #bookseries #bibliophile #booknerd #bookgeek

The Killer Inside Me | Jim Thompson
post image
Panpan

This was an ok read. But he was the most boring serial killer I've ever encountered. There wasn't much reason for his behaviour, I didn't feel that he gained anything or did it because he enjoyed it. Not much detail in the way he killed them, and he was kind of sloppy considering he thought he was so clever &had it all planned out. If you're a fan of Psycho &American Psycho I'd give this a miss. #dull 2/5 #review #bookish #bookwork #serialkiller

I enjoyed my re read of It, there was so much I had forgotten. It's a great story of friendship and overcoming fears. I could of done without some parts mainly Mikes parts in the interludes were a bit boring. & obviously the scene towards the end I could of done without. But it's a fantastic read & worth the journey. I'm excited & ready for the film! #it #stephenking #bigbooks #horror #pennywise #review #funko

Nos4R2 a supernatural thriller. staring Vic the bmx riding main protagonist & Charlie Manx the Rolls Royce child killer. Bing is Manx's side kick who imo is more terrifying than Manx. I enjoyed this one it's A creepy read that travels through parallel worlds, Told from multiple POV. Take A creepy read into Christmas land where the children never grow up. 4/5

this book lifts the lid on daily life in the mortuary with detailed insights from history, & science. Very descriptive, as a result I feel I could dissect some shit up after reading this. Not for the fainthearted. interesting, Fascinating & insightful. if you are interested in what happens when we die then pick this one up. As this reveals the truth about what happens before the lid of the coffin slams shut 4/5 #pastmortems #nonfiction #review

[DELETED] 3803335244 My husband might love this! While he was in college for forensic science, I saw way too many morbid books cross his path! Lol 😂 2y

Full of hilarious comebacks & sarcastic comments throughout. if I were to be a character in a book I'd be Miriam. I read this in two sittings these books are just so addictive! so much goes wrong for her, she's a complete mess but you can't help but love her! I loved this one as much as the first. I can't guess where it's going & it's pointless trying to guess, because #Mariamblack doesn't go by the same rules as everyone else. #chuckwendig 5/5
