This book was so much fun! I would recommend checking out the audiobook from the library if you have the physical copy and listening along. The illustrations were great and the action and comedy was strong and entertaining. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Takes the concept of ‘The Purge‘ movies mixed with the production behind ‘The Hunger Games‘ (or the classic Arnold film Running Man) Indiscriminate killings and a glimpse into a future of manufactured fear.
I don‘t know what that says about me but I loved it. ☠️

A little past the half way point. (On audio)
I was enjoying the first part and now this second part is getting pretty wacky and I‘ve disconnected with what‘s going on. I‘ll stick through it cause it has to have a good ending, right?

Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo | Taylor Jenkins Reid
Pickpick

Yes I actually read (listened to) this whole book. Definitely not my typical read but I did enjoy it. It started out like a Sex and the City episode but then went deep into controversial LGBT perceptions in Hollywood in the 50s and 60s. Then there was a hefty emotional guy punch in the final chapter. Definitely a ‘beach read‘ or a good pick for the next book club over some wine.

Diving into this audiobook. The first story was great and the narration is wonderful. The second story is that if the title and that‘s just started. Great scary read for the season.

Scott_BookInvasion @vivastory He had a tweet or something that if you provided him proof of a pre-order of the book he would provide the address and would pay the cost to mail it back. So, yeah, I mailed it but it was prompted. He‘s going on a tour soon but maybe if you contact him when it‘s over he‘ll give you the address. 8mo

Version Control: A Novel | Dexter Palmer

Mehso-so

Wow. This wasn‘t what I expected but it strung me along juuuuust enough to finish it.

It was more ‘literature‘ type reading than sci-fi where it dives deep into the relationships and cultural/societal topography of the near future.

It was interesting and quite well done but just slow and I was looking toward something a little faster and more action.

Like Daniels does such a great narration on this. I love the campy trope-ody and the silliness of it all. I‘m only about 5 chapersbin and its like Monty Python meets Princess Bride but a little sillier.

I‘ve watched a couple panels and signings with these authors together and they seem to have such a good dynamic. I‘m so glad to see their is going to be more!

Wow, what a thrill ride.
This one grabs you in with a constant fear of ‘oh no, something bad is going to happen‘ and sinks it‘s dripping jowls right through your mindscape. I always enjoy the super-nice-bad-guy play and I wanted to shout some reason into the characters. I feel like there could have been a better ‘plot revelation‘ and it didn‘t end how my twisted mind suspected it would.

The audio narration left something to be desired. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

readordierachel I kind of liked that there wasn't a reveal/twist at the end, even though it was somewhat unsatisfying. Glad you enjoyed it! 10mo

This book was just the kind of juvenile space-romp that gets me every time. The helpless hero with a shady past gets thrust into all kind of predicament with a cast of galactic villainy! Hilarity ensues! I really enjoyed it - Hitchhikers Guide its not, but it‘s up there. The author used to be a writer for Jon Stewart back on The Daily Show days - so it‘s got that going for it.

Guildedearlobe I have about 3 hours left in Kill the Farm Boy. It‘s light and fun and perfect after reading some darker novels. Plus Luke Daniels is excellent as usual. Meddling Kids is great fun too. The Cabin at the End of the World will easily be in my top 10 this year. I‘ll be interested in what you think of One of Us. It‘s in my maybe pile. Have mixed results with his books in the past. Great choices. 11mo

This is one of the first books I remember checking out from the library many many years ago and I‘ve never found it since. These illustrations I just never got out of my head. Flash forward 20yrs later and I found a digest edition hardcover at the thrift store (no dust jacket 🙁). Can‘t wait to re-read it!
