This month‘s book club book is Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. It‘s really good, but so hard to read. I live in the county next to where this took place.

I enjoyed this historical ghost story set 90 minutes from my home town! It takes place in a real building I googled to find pictures. I‘m going to a convention next Saturday and the author will be there. Also, this is my first post with my iPhone 8 plus so let‘s see how the picture turns out.

If you aren't listening to Anne Bogel's podcast What Should I Read Next, what are you doing with your life. @Liberty and BookRiot in general excepted, she's my favorite podcaster. She wrote a book. So I'm reading it. Yes it's propped on my pibble's backside.

This is my new shelf of books I want to read. My old shelf got too full. I'm in grad school now, so I just come and stare at it occasionally. No time for fun reading.

I finished it. 600 pages. Almost in one sitting. The thing I appreciated the most is that it isn't dumbed down. I hate when YA books tell instead of show. This one lets you figure it out. Epic!

Oklahoma has a yearly children's book award which is voted on by readers. I just got the nominees for next year's award and I'm reading them. This was on the middle school list. I liked the main character, but the time travel element was wonky.

This book was everything I expected and a bunch that I didn't expect. I expected fluffy drama. I didn't expect to laugh out loud. I didn't expect to actually like any of the characters. I didn't expect to feel intelligent. I was pleasantly surprised.
