The Running Man | Stephen King, Richard Bachman
Mehso-so

This book was alright. The story was easy to read and follow along and I know there has been talk about how King handles LGBTQ+ issues, but I felt like the racial and homophobic slurs distracted from the story. I understand that this was written almost 40 years ago, so some of the writing is pursuant to the times, but it was still a drawback for me.

This book! It is so well written and engrossing and powerful and heartbreaking and...

I am usually leery of the use of any all encompassing words, but every child in America should be made to read this book at some point in their education!

I‘m usually not that into Christmas (mostly because everyone else is so over the top with it), but I did my first book swap last month and enjoyed it, so I figured I‘d try the whole team thing. I‘m a pretty competitive person, sports and whatnot; hopefully I can help out a little. #WinterGames @Clwojick @StayCurious

StayCurious Being on a team is definitely fun! Glad you‘re joining us ❄️ ⛄️ 1w
LibrarianRyan Yeah. And the fun thing is you don‘t have to be in to Christmas just have a TBR. 1w
Jb2003 @LibrarianRyan I have a huge TBR (not 2k, but a few hundred), so as long as I can find time to read, I should be good 1w

The Bone Houses | Emily Lloyd-Jones
Pickpick

I really enjoyed this book. Was a nice read without having to think too much or piece together the meaning of the world. I think it would be great for young readers, as well. Just enough detail to paint the scene without getting bogged down too much. Overall, a good, easy read.

I didn‘t realize this was part of an already developed world, so I‘m sure there are some details that didn‘t resonate as they should have, but I enjoyed the writing and story anyway. Looking forward to picking up more books in this series.

I‘m taking a motorcycle class. We get an hour for lunch which means 15 minutes to find something and 45 minutes to read before I have to be back. Not a bad Friday.

I really enjoyed this book. Obvious parallels with today‘s oppression, but still a good story line.

The Hate U Give | Angela Thomas
Pickpick

The truth of the book shouldn‘t be a surprise to anyone living in the US today, but told through the voice of a sixteen year old girl, it is almost unbearable. Beautifully woven, heartbreakingly real. A must read.

I like this book. I‘m just getting back into reading YA and I can‘t wait to read the next one in the series. There were a few bits of forecasting that made some things predictable, but overall a good read and interesting twist on the Victorian Era English world.

I loved this book. The author does a great job of incorporating details about her martial arts training and the culture and history of Tibet, China, Nepal, and Buddhism into the narrative of her journey. While this undertaking was years ago, it is a story that is still very relevant today.

This book is so good. I love the back and forth with the main characters. Definite book hangover, though.

This is such a good read. Interesting point of view and presentation of such an important subject. It clearly illustrates how horrible that whole situation was and the direct application of the same thing today.

A hard, but good read. It‘s a quick and easy read and the graphics are great, but a difficult subject nonetheless, more-so because it tells the story from the perspective of a child living the situation.

I enjoyed the overarching story, but the narrator is a self righteous, privileged, egocentric man who tells the story almost as a backdrop to his own superior qualities. It was easy enough to read and if you can look past the narrator, it is a good story.
