Illuminae | Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff
post image

Just picked up the book Illuminae from the library book store! I had no idea what it was about but I remember seeing the cover everywhere awhile back. It's actually an ARC & I've never seen a hardcover ARC + the book flap made me laugh & got me intrigued, so I had to bring it home. I flipped though & it seems to be told in emails or something like that? A format I generally enjoy. If you've already read this let me know what you thought!

My other current read ? I'm reading this one with Andrew. It's been on my radar for awhile, but when we started reading books together I knew I had to get a copy. Then I found it at the used book store with @Blueberry ! He's really into Lovecraft/Cthulu stuff & I kept seeing this called a "Scooby Doo-Lovecraft mashup." I was also getting Stranger Things vibes. Still waiting for it to get real juicy, but excited for the adventure ahead.

Andrew & I finished Bloodsucking Fiends the other night! Took us awhile because I was sick for weeks & kept falling asleep when he'd read to me 😂 We both really enjoyed it, & will probably pick up the next two books eventually. We've already started our next book though :)

I got this from the library for 2 reasons:
1) I'm seeing Neil Gaiman in May & wanted to read more of his books by then.
2) The theme for Book Pub this month was fantasy.
My husband loves Neil Gaiman & asked if I wanted to read it together, I hate reading aloud but figured it might be fun to try. So we took turns reading to each other, aside from the last couple nights where he did all the reading, bc I got sick & didn't want to. He's a keeper 😂

JaclynW What a guy! Enjoy your visit with Neil Gaiman! He's wonderful! 4mo
Blueberry Love your husband 😀. Umm, what's this about Neil Gaiman?? 4mo
NataliePatalie @Blueberry He's pretty cool 😎 Hahah I told you Margaret got me a Neil Gaiman ticket! 4mo

I have read every single Daniel Handler book hoping I would enjoy it as much as I enjoyed A Series of Unfortunate Events or seeing him at book events. But I think it's just time to admit that that won't be happening any time soon.

You | Caroline Kepnes
post image

Was anyone watching the TV series "You," based on the book by Caroline Kepnes? I just finished the season finale. So creepy! It convinced me to finally put a lock on my phone, hahah. If you've read it, how does the book compare? If I know all the major twists, is it still worth reading? And if you watched it, what did you think about that finale???!!

Blueberry I never heard of the book or tv show. I'm curious now. 7mo
NataliePatalie @Blueberry I'm adding the book to my TBR. 7mo
Bklover I‘ve read the book, and the sequel as well and loved them both. I didn‘t think they‘d be able to cast Joe, but they did a great job! I haven‘t seen the finale yet, but the first few episodes are fairly close. Of course the book‘s always better! 7mo
NataliePatalie @Bklover That's great! I think the actor did a great job as well. I need to read the books before season 2 comes out! 7mo

3. Hoopla, Overdrive & Litsy.
