My Mom has been trying to get me to read this series for a while now. The #InDeathLongReadalong with @StayCurious gave me the perfect time to dig in.

We are almost through with the first, but my lack of impulse control made me finish the final chapters tonight. Can‘t wait for book #2

StayCurious I‘m so glad to have you with us. I really like book 2 so it‘ll be good to read with you. 1mo

I love the movie adaptations of all her novels. I did like this, but sometimes I felt it was quite the chore to get through her writing.

In a world where a virus infects and kills animals rendering the meat poisonous, humans are now being raised/farmed as the new supply. Trigger warnings for rape and animal abuse. I know I will be thinking about this one for a while.

I grew up in the 80‘s/90‘s so I had a metal phase followed by a grunge phase, but my all time favorite would have to be Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Knicks. Quite the contrast I know.

I know there has to be picture of me out there somewhere with some tight rolled jeans and some heavily hair sprayed hair.

Thanks
