The Clockwork Dynasty | Daniel H. Wilson

Only a third of the way through...but oh what fun! Alternative History were automations walk among us along with alternating chapters set in 18 century Russia about the origin of one. Super fun idea! @24in48 #bookriotreadharderchallenge2018

Finished this late in the night that my giggling caused a lot of confused stares from my partner. A a large and loud woman I really related to many of these essays. @24in48 #bookriotreadharderchallenge

I forgot to post my first readathon book! I tackled a nonfiction biography about the scientist Alexander Von Humbolt. His theories inspired other thinkers of his time and still found to influence environmental science today. The prose is clean and clear and very engaging of a topic. @24in48 #bookriotreadharderchallenge

Been a little distracted this readathon but I was able to finish my second book! What a charming classic Newberry award winner. I would especially recommend #Islandofthebluedolphins for younger readers. @24in48 #bookriotreadharderchallenge

Carter & Lovecraft | Jonathan L. Howard

Still on a sci-fi kick but this time with a detective series with Lovecraftian crimes. I am not big on detective stories but I did like the Lovecraft descendant bookseller. #sciencefiction #atozchallene #audiobook

Dragon Teeth: A Novel | Michael Crichton

First book of year! If you are looking for a Western why not try one based on the historic feud between paleontologists Marsh and Cope during the era of the dinosaur wars. It is quick to read not Crichton‘s best, having been published posthumously,but an interesting time nonetheless. #bookriotreadharderchallenge #western #science #historicalfiction #readingchallenge #posthumously

What are you reading and drinking? I have a pumpkin spice latte and a fun title. Also started an audiobook :) @DeweysReadathon #readathon #spookyreads #pumpkinspice

toofondofbooks I just finished this on audiobook last week and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I grew up at exactly the same time as the main character in the 80s, so I enjoyed the nostalgia more than the scares 2y

Swimming Lessons | Claire Fuller

A little late in posting this. A study in the dynamics of family relationships. Namely a reflection on a marriage through letters and a child coming to terms with her parent's reality. Not a bad read but a slow build up. #RC24 #LitsyReadingChallenge #Reading Challeng #judgebycover #coverlove

Kill the Boy Band | Goldy Moldavsky
Pickpick

I'm honestly not a fan girl or into boy bands, (I am not into sugar pop music) but I really enjoyed this book. It is quick, gossipy and a little dark. The unreliable narrator mixed with different characteristics of fandom make it interesting. Kill the boy band.

Slade House | David Mitchell
post image
Pickpick

Every time I pick up a David Mitchell I feel that the works keep getting better and better. This one is a take on the horror genre and it didn't disappoint. I kept getting goosebumps at the climaxes of each of the stories. It is also very short but very quick read.

Winter | Marissa Meyer
Pickpick

Overall I really enjoyed the series. The characters were fun and original. Meyer really worked hard to create a very engaging and believable world. There are times when the prose gets a little "fluffy" but this series hits the guilty obsession sweet spot. It is a great series to check out.
