Book 4. And I'm hooked. I'll be buying the rest of the collection. My cousin ran a huge comic book store in Brooklyn and I would see this series on the shelf all the time. But I was never drawn to it. 1990s me probably wouldn't have appreciated it - but 2018 me loves it!

Book 3 done. This was moving, funny, confusing, and absorbing.

I'm definitely not going to get to the full 24 hours but I think 17 or 18 might be possible.

This book changed my worldview. I obviously knew about the civil rights movement but didn't understand the sacrifices that were made by those involved. Their lives were constantly in danger but they continued to fight. It also showed me the importance of protest.

Stack for #24in48. Also hope to finish up Space Opera. I find that reading books in varying formats is fun during readathons.

I can only read about two pages of Harry Potter in Korean in one sitting. I have to look up a ton of words and seeing that much Korean on the page makes me a little cross eyed. So I'll sprinkle it in throughout the weekend.

Dan Pfeiffer is my favorite of the Pod Save America hosts so I predictably really enjoyed this book. It's a great mix of memoir, peek inside the Obama campaign and administration, and advice for how we carry on. The hopeful tone that it ends on is a little hard to really believe in after the SCOTUS news, but I'm still feeling more hopeful than I did before I read it.

Bailing on this because of the unpleasant tone of the author's writing. In the passage above he is judgmental of a party host for serving fish and soup on a hot day. He chalks it up to the host being a foreigner. WTF?! And earlier in the book, there was this gem: "If the patient is well educated, articulate, and interested in his health, that information can be complete... But usually the patient is none of the above." Gross.

Things related to my life keep popping up in this book. It takes place in New York after two world altering catastrophic floods. I'm currently focused on flood and storm surge at my job. I work in reinsurance which was just mentioned in the book. And a large part of the story takes place in the building I worked in for six years. I love things like this. Makes me feel more engaged in the story.

#unpopularopinion I found this trite, maudlin and emotionally manipulative. None of the characters or situations rang true to me. The main character fluctuated between acting like an eight year girl and a thirty year old woman. She's supposed to be fourteen. Totally unconvincing.

Sherri Hmm. Had this one on my “maybe read” list. Think I‘ll pass. 14mo
NCNY @Sherri I'm way in the minority on this so definitely don't go just by my review. I tend to feel emotionally manipulated really easily. 14mo

This book totally charmed me. It combines magic and science seamlessly and has a cast of fun, endearing characters. I found it much more subtle and realistic than The Power in imagining a world where women have powers that most men don't. It doesn't hit you over the head with its ideas but it addresses prejudice, inequality, oppression and war. Really well done and unexpectedly fun.

I ended up reading this all in one day. The structure and story really sucked me in. The alternating viewpoints were a really effective way to tell the story. I don't have children but I feel like it gave me a glimpse into what parents go through - especially when their children don't turn out exactly like they hoped or imagined.

This was a great story of adventure, history and anthropology. The conditions of the expeditions in the Amazon seem unbearable and it's mind-boggling that anyone would persevere through them. The explorers' dedication and curiosity is admirable.

The book is also kind of a mystery about the fate of one of the world's great explorers. The author wrapped the book up in a really satisfying way even without having all the answers.

This was compassionate true crime. I never felt icky or voyeuristic reading this. She wasn't overly graphic about the murders and treated the victims and investigators with respect. The way she included herself in the story didn't feel heavy handed like sometimes happens with this type of non-fiction. It felt natural and like it had to be that way. I'm glad they caught the guy but really wish she had lived to see it.

Christine Agreed re: all of this! ❤️ 1y
readordierachel Well said. I love that term "compassionate true crime" 1y
Anna40 I have a bit of a problem with true crime. There are the victims, families, friends, grief and I'm often shocked and it makes me sad how disrespectful people can be when they comment about true crime. I'm glad that this book is different and that the guy is behind bars! 1y

#freakyfriday This is the third time travel book I've read in the past year. Things I now know for sure:

1. I love time travel books.
2. If time travel ever becomes a real thing, don't do it. It never goes well.

I grew to care about the characters in this book and was super invested in how their story turned out. Really entertaining.

#freakyfriday 😍 This was scary but magical. It perfectly captured the feeling of what it's like to be a child. All the emotions were so vivid - fear, confusion, comfort, love. There was so much goodness packed into a short book. This was my first Neil Gaiman book. It definitely won't be my last.

This isn't a genre that I typically enjoy. I didn't love this one but I did learn a lot. For instance, I didn't know musicology was a thing. And I don't think I've ever read anything set in the Czech Republic so it was nice to broaden my horizons.

I got this for free at a Random House event. It was my first Jack Reacher novel and it was just what I expected. Fun and action packed. Reacher is less cool than I thought he'd be. He's a bit Cormoran Strike-y.

I've been sick all week and this was just the level of reading I could handle. Low brain strain.

I'm going to get started a bit early on #freakyfriday. All my library holds are starting to come in so I can't resist.

After the first few stories I thought this might join Ted Chiang's collection as one of my favorites. But the stories ended up feeling repetitive. The stories I enjoyed most involved language and how it can be deconstructed and manipulated. As a collection, this pales in comparison to Stories of Your Life and Others.

This book was such an unexpected delight. It's one that I won in one of Liberty's giveaways so I didn't know much about it. This is how I like my YA - full of adventure and science and low on romance. Some of the plot points were super far fetched but I was totally along for the ride because the characters were all likeable and it has so much warmth and humor. So fun!

What a story! What the author went through in just a single month is mind blowing. It shows the frailty of the human body - particularly the brain.
