The Fireman | Joe Hill
post image

My current listen... I have eight hours to go. Liking the story, but I really do not like Harper! I hate these "perfect" characters in books that seem so superficial. This is the first book I've listened to with a female narrator, and I'm wondering if that it part of my issue... maybe I'm just not a huge fan of the narrator

Newest listen at work... finished in two days. It's a short listen (less than ten hours). I read the book years ago and liked it, and why not enjoy it again during #sharkweek

Finishing up the lost world on audiobook... the book is so much better than the movie! I guess that's not too shocking

The Dead Zone | Stephen King

I happened upon the tv series years ago, and fell in love. Probably one of my all time favorite shows! Had wanted to read the book since, but never got around to it. Decided to listen to the audiobook... the book was great! Thinking about rewatching the series and maybe finding the movie

The Dead Zone | Stephen King
post image

Listening to this while I'm at work. Wasn't too sure I'd be a huge fan of audiobooks, but I made it through the entire Harry Potter series so I figured I'd try something new. Can't say that I'm giving it my undivided attention, but really like the story. Loved the tv series based off of this book that was on years ago!

I won't say this was the best book I ever read, but it wasn't bad! It did take me forever to read it, though. I didn't find it to be a slow read, but I've been busy lately and would pick it up and read a chapter at a time. I've had this book for years and never read it for some reason

I really wanted to love this book, but it was odd. Not bad odd... just strange. Very well written, however.

This was a super quick read, and a borrowed book from work. Found it interesting but really not a lot of new information. I'd be willing to look into the actual workbook to see what benefits I could find. Plenty of good ideas here.

Thrift store haul today... already own "quiet" on my kindle but thought it was worth owning in paperback. The other looks pretty interesting as well.

MyBookSwapClub Hey where is this wonderful store --- quiet is on my TBR and I so badly want to read this book (but my new year resolution is that I'll either buy from thrift store or swap (library is an option) but haven't been able to visit one yet!!! Enjoy #BookHaul 3y

This was a very odd and creepy book. I wouldn't call it scary, really, but definitely disturbing in that I'm pretty sure I've known men like Joe. Yikes! The entire story is written in the second person. I can't say that this was my favorite book that I've ever read, but I'll probably read the sequel. I did get a kick out of the endorsement on the front by Stephen King and all the mentions of him in the story!

Mystery books revealed... Can't say that I would have picked up many of these on my own, but at five cents a book I think I got a pretty good deal. Out of these there are probably half that if at least attempt to read, and most of the others I'm sure I could find homes for (my family reads a lot)! If they still have these next time I'm at the library, I will definitely purchase another mystery bag (or two)!!

Finished this last week and was surprised at how much I liked it! I've been really into "scary" books lately, but I'm not easy to scare, so many have fallen flat. I nearly book this book down after the first part because it was so intense! I found the story to be great, and though the first part was intense, I'm glad I stuck it out and read the whole book! I did go to the store to get more of his books, but our store didn't have many... Boo!

TrishB Loved this book. Actually, have loved all his books! 3y

Finished this one a couple of weeks back as well. I was surprised with how much I enjoyed this book! I found it to be extremely well written. To me it was like a combination of "the stand" (Stephen King) and the tv series "survivor." Great first novel and an easy read, one that was hard to put down!

Read this a couple of weeks back, but haven't yet reviewed. This had been on my TBR list for a while, and I finally found it in the book bus. The writing was fine, and there was a huge twist at the end... That I really did not see coming! I think I was kind of angry at the ending of this book, because at first it did not make sense to me... Until I realized that it tied up everything. Had I read this book when I was 16 probably would have loved it

ballina The end made me soooo angry! 3y
Kleonard Oh, I agree! 3y

Tons of maps, had trouble picking just one! Maybe not as beautiful as maps in a lot of other books, but helpful to understand the places spoken about in the book! #mapsinbooks #somethingforsept #sharkbooks #septphotochallenge @RealLifeReading

ReadingOver50 OMG this book sounds so interesting. Have you read the whole series? 3y
Pamtherunner @ReadingOver50 it's one of my favorite series! The first and fourth books are my favorites. I got to meet Steve Alten a few months ago, which was awesome because I've been interested in these books basically since they came out (1997) 3y

#blameitonlitsy these are some of the books I've acquired since joining Litsy in July. I'm also not counting the library books I've checked out and the couple of ebooks I've downloaded. And I have tons more on my TBR list. I was already in #BOTM but since joining Litsy I've been getting three books a month, rather than just my monthly selection. Now to find time to read them all #somethingforsept #septphotochallenge @RealLifeReading
