I hate when you buy a new book and it comes in super damaged. 🫤

Twilight | Stephanie Meyer

I‘ve always loved twilight. I understand it‘s not a literary masterpiece, but the books and movies are fun. They are my guilty pleasure! I found these dust covers that look like cheesy vhs movies and treated myself. Midnight Sun is my favorite cover I think!

AshleyHoss820 These are masterpieces! 😍 9mo
Bklover I enjoyed them too! 9mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Those covers are great. 9mo

The Last Word: A Novel | Taylor Adams

Panpan

I didn‘t like No Exit, but this was the only May BOTM that sounded interesting so I figured I would give the author a second chance. Big mistake. I started out liking it. I haven‘t felt this angry finishing a book in forever. I don‘t want to donate it, because someone will end up paying money for it, and if I put it in a little free library someone is still wasting their time. What to do with a book you really disliked?

LiteraryinLawrence Oh no! Can you say (behind a spoiler marker) what made you dislike it so much? 9mo
Skyrimir I actually enjoyed the first 100 pages or so, but then the multiple endings (literally was wondering how it was ending so soon so many times) and the fedora tipping, samurai sword wielding killer, plus the awful ending ruined it for me. 9mo

Okay, so I may be in my 30s, but I appreciate a fun Percy Jackson style series every now and then. This is the first book I DNF‘d this year. The lead was very much a Mary Sue, and with writing like this….

Tailchaser's Song | Tad Williams
post image

My little free library had this cat fantasy book and I can‘t wait to read it. With names like Hushpad, Eatbugs, Tailchaser and a promise for a journey “beyond his wildest catmares” I‘m not sure how it could go wrong. 🤣

But for real, it looks like a very well loved book that was read many times and even taped up. It must have something special going for it. I‘ve got a soft spot for well loved paperbacks.

Wanderers: A Novel | Chuck Wendig

Saga of the book I‘m reading. There are so many chapters that go into detail on what a pandemic is. I‘m like, come on, I know this already. It was published early 2019, it makes me wonder if the editor would have cut some chapters out because later into the covid pandemic EVERYONE knows so much now. There‘s been a lot of slow chapters, but at 70% listen through things got very interesting!

Just started this audiobook. When I first started I knew I recognize the narrator‘s voice but I couldn‘t place it. Then I realized he also narrated songbirds and snakes by Suzanne Collins. I like his narration style.

This has been both a hard listen and a hopeful one. While his personal life seems messy his life of helping people in recovery once he found sobriety isn‘t. I‘m only halfway, but I am glad I picked this one on a whim. I don‘t know a lot about the actor and his story is a captivating one.

For some reason usps has delivered my BOTM to the exact same wrong house the past two boxes. We don‘t even live on the same street! We have the big communal locked boxes, so I get that it may be easy to make the mistake, I‘m just glad they bring it to me when they receive it!

I‘ve got two and a half hours left and I don‘t know if I can handle it. The last few hours have been just everything that can go wrong for the main character going wrong. I‘m stressed out, but I also want to know if things end well.

Megabooks The very last ending is fantastic! I had to audio skim a bit around where you‘re at. It is a bit difficult to read the part leading up to the end. 2y

The saddest email to get when your book isn‘t actually delivered. 😭😭😭 I‘m hoping I get it tomorrow because otherwise it was delivered to a neighbor and NO ONE brings mis-delivered packages to the right house. My mail carrier literally lost 7 packages over a month.

I started this one when it came out and didn‘t get far. Figured I‘d give the audiobook a try. I would have loved to know more about Finnick, a young Haymitch, Mags. I‘m not sure why Collins chose to write about Snow, of all people. I don‘t really care about all these capitol characters.

I was so excited to see my box was delivered, but when I got home it hadn‘t been, even though it says it was put in my mailbox on the usps tracking. 😢 My carrier often misdelivers the mail, so I‘ve lost many a package. I contacted BOTM to see what they can do. I was looking forward to reading this and the pins!!!

Over a month ago my cats saw a cat through an open window and then proceeded to get in a bad fight with each other. They‘ve just started being okay being around each other again. We spent a good chunk of today hanging out. I‘m so happy! It‘s been so stressful having to keep them separated.
