Finished this this morning. Pretty terrifying what Ebola can do to you. The author gives real-hand accounts of those who have contracted the virus, and those who have bravely fought to eradicate it.

Believe it not, this was a Christmas gift from my parents a few years ago. So better late then never.

I'm curious if any of you get this message while browsing through books on Libby. It's been doing this for quite awhile. I'm on Android, not sure if this is a problem on IOS. I don't get this message on OverDrive. This is really frustrating because I really like Libby. 👿

Update: I restarted my phone and now it is running smooth.

Black Mad Wheel | Josh Malerman

The synopsis had so much potential, but I feel it did not quite deliver. The beginning had me hooked. It started with Philip Tonka, a former WW2 veteran having almost every bone in his body fractured (of varying degrees) by a sound in Africa that is supposed to only make you sick.
After that though, it kind of started to fall. What had me going was seeing how Philip would progress with such a crippling injury. By the end, I had no clue...

TheRiehlDeal what was going on. Even if I re-read the last 50+ pages, I still wouldn't have been able to understand what was happening.

Unfortunately, I think this is his most underwhelming book out of Bird Box and A House at the Bottom of a Lake.

Had high hopes for this after reading Bird Box, but I will say, it was decent. The book focuses on two seventeen-year-old's who find (as the name of the book says), a house at the bottom of a lake, while canoeing.
The book is quite short, under 120 pages, so definitely a book you could read in a day. I'd say the thing that kept me reading was to find out what mysterious things would happen with the house.

The Broken Ones | Sarah A. Denzil

Pickpick

I finished this about a couple months ago, but forgot to put a review on here.

I really liked how the author made you feel the stresses of being a caretaker and the effects it can have on you mentally. As that is the case with the story's main protagonist, Sophie Howland, whom has to take care of her elderly (Mum). It is revealed early in the book that Sophie's mom has early onset Alzheimer's. Sophie also has to deal with her mom's... (cont.) 👇

TheRiehlDeal ...bitterness and angry outbursts that makes Sophie feel insecure. Coupled with the fact that Mum forgets things a lot, and a myriad of other things, the reader understands the toll it has on Sophie.

Overall, I thought this was a really good book with a little mystery added as well.

I was reading this book on and off, so I can't say I really cared for it. And the plot was a bit confusing; like, I'm not sure what the story was really about. All in all, I would just skip this book if you have not read it.

Didn't really care too much for this book. Felt like I was reading this just to finish it. The only good thing I can probably take from this book is the writing. I'll have to wait and see if Cash's other book, The Last Ballad, lives up to my expectations.
