This Monstrous Thing | Mackenzi Lee
post image
Pickpick

Ya‘ll…this book is fantastic. I went into it thinking it was a retelling of Frankenstein itself, and while it is a retelling, it‘s more of a steampunk retelling of how Mary Shelley came up with the idea for the original story. If life wouldn‘t have gotten in the way, I would‘ve finished this way sooner. It was a struggle to put it down. If you have a love of Frankenstein or steampunk, I recommend giving this a chance. #thismonstrousthing

Onward to my next read! I love Frankenstein so I‘m thrilled to get into this retelling! #frankenstein #retelling #thriftbooks #hardcover #crystals

sprainedbrain Can‘t wait to hear what you think… I love her Montague siblings books and have wondered about this one! 2w
SpookyDonut @sprainedbrain I inhaled the Montague siblings books, except the 3rd one. I haven‘t gotten my hands on that one yet. I‘m extremely picky about Frankenstein retellings because of how much love I have for the original. If you haven‘t read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White, I highly highly recommend! 2w
sprainedbrain I have read that, and I freaking loved it. So I‘m going to trust your assessment of this one. 😉 2w
SpookyDonut @sprainedbrain I got you, friend! 2w

Next one on the list! Changing it up a little bit to hopefully lighten up after the dark read that was American Predator. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve found comfort in short stories.

This pulled me out of my book slump! This was all around a wild ride. I‘m devastated at the ending of this case and the fact that this didn‘t get as much news coverage due to a lot of mishandling. If you‘re into serial killers, this is definitely one to add to the collection.

The Waste Lands didn‘t pull me in like I was hoping. American Predator pulled me in right away and I‘ve barely put it down since I started it today. I hate that I don‘t remember hearing about this case as it was happening. #americanpredator #maureencallahan #serialkiller #bookslump #kindle #ebook #library

Carrie | Stephen King

Mehso-so

Feels like it took me forever to get through Carrie even though it‘s such a short book. Honestly, I went into it without knowing anything about it (I‘ve never seen the movies) and I wasn‘t sure what to expect. This is only the 3rd King book I‘ve read so far and I‘m anxious to keep diving into his writing.

Halfway through this one. I‘m really enjoying it. I definitely think it‘s better than The Gunslinger but it has a totally different vibe to it. It‘s been a lot of fun reading and a lot of fun talking to my boss about it, since he got me started on this series. Also, here‘s my face, since the last couple weeks have been excruciating and this was the first day in awhile that I felt completely like myself.

Been busy studying and haven‘t had a chance to read for fun until tonight. Finished this book and stayed up later than I should have to do so (it‘s 4:30 am here!). I really enjoyed this book. It had a few twists that I wasn‘t expecting and I just really love Fern.

Ya‘ll, I went to the library to pick up a book I had on hold and the used bookstore next door had a sale going on. I picked up these 7 books for 70 cents! Some are out of my normal realm of genre but they all sounded interesting and it‘s always good to branch out.

Reposting the same picture since I spent my Sunday reading and finished this. I loved it! It pulled me out of my reading slump. I couldn‘t put it down. It‘s not a genre I normally read, but now I‘m wanting to expand my horizons and read more! I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to read something different and has a bunch of strong female characters. Be spooked at your own risk!

Had a struggle getting into Adjustment Day, so I‘m going to try to digest it in smaller pieces. While browsing my bookcase, I remembered I had this older edition of Gone with the Wind that I picked up a couple years ago in NC. 1954 Perma Book edition. It was obviously well-loved before ending up in my hands. #gonewiththewind #margaretmitchell #classic #booktomovie #paperback
