Career of Evil | Robert Galbraith
post image

The 3rd in the series. I'm liking this one just as much as the first 2. All of Rowling books that I've read have been good. Borrowed the pic from herb.co. Reminds me of my job.

MrBook Where the heck's the toilet paper?! 😂 4y

I really liked this book. Normally, a book about a person's life bores me. Mulgrew had a way of telling a story that was her line instead of just listing dates and corresponding facts. Or it could be that she will always be Captain Janeway to me.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Captain Janeway is awesome, so there's nothing wrong with that! 😉 4y
Megabooks I agree! Great book! 🖖🏻 4y

@Liberty there is my book that I enjoyed the ending. #booktag The whole book hooked me and I will continue to read from this author and series.

Sammidnightsun Love everything about these books 4y
Tjprender @Sammidnightsun I've been looking at them for a long time and finally decided to read one. I'm hooked. 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa That's a very good series, I enjoyed all of them! 4y

The Virgin Suicides | Jeffrey Eugenides
post image

I had great hopes for this book. I completely enjoyed Middlesex by Eugenides, but this story just bored me. It was made into a movie and it wasn't much better.

Megabooks I liked it, but I watched the movie before I read the book. Actually years before, and it really stuck with me. Sofia Coppola did the movie, and it was excellent! 4y
Sue I did enjoy the book - I found the narrative voice very unusual and interesting. The movie was great though. 4y
Tjprender @Ebooksandcooks @sue I'm glad you enjoyed it. My wife liked the movie. She told me she didn't want to risk ruining it by reading the book. 4y
Sue I do understand that! 4y
MrBook I've heard similar responses to his books. I loved "Middlesex". The audiobook is ineffably amazing. 4y

Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel | Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor

Tjprender Time to clean the garage. This should make for a great chore day audiobook. 4y
TiffReadsAndRuns Loved this in audiobook form! It helps that I am a fan of the podcast 4y
Ellsbeth I love that they included some of the music! Of course, that just made me miss it more in the sections with no music. :) 4y

Tjprender @TiffanyDJ and @Ellsbeth I've never heard the podcast or that it even exists. I found the book in a local bookstore and the cover alone pulled me in. I am becoming a big fan of the quirky sense of humor. 4y
LianneB The podcast is everything!!! 4y
TiffReadsAndRuns @Tjprender if you like the book, then you'll like the podcast. You don't have to go back and listen to it from the beginning either! It's excellent 4y

I like free libraries / book swap. Found this TBR today on the shelf at our resort. I gave them a book I read on while vacationing here.

Sandwavesandbooks I keep debating on getting this one, let me know if you like it 4y

1984 | George Orwell

Time to enjoy a classic. I think most on my time spent listening to this book will be done while I run. It seems appropriate.

Sue Love this, he was such a visionary. 4y

It is taking me forever to finish this book. I hate bailing on a book. Maybe reading it upside down with beer on the beach will help?

I'm about 1/3 into this book and I'm still trying to like it. I like the writing style and the characters are pulling me in, but I've never been a teenage girl so I'm having a hard time connecting.

Megabooks I just thought it was ok, but the ending is good. 4y
Tjprender @Ebooksandcooks I'm a little over half way and it is getting better. 4y

Atlas Shrugged | Ayn Rand
post image

This is such a good book. It is very long and at times wordy, but so worth it. Rand is known as a philosopher and her insight it very thought provoking.

brittnaypozen This will always be one of my favorites! 4y
Jellybeanbon I really enjoyed The Fountainhead so will have to give this one a go. 4y
Tjprender @Jellybeanbon I keep hearing about Fountainhead. I'll have to try it. 4y

I've enjoyed this book twice. Once in audio and then written. I'm not sure which way I like it better.

One Second After | William R. Forstchen

This is one of my favorite books read this year. I like the apocalyptic stories. Especially ones that I believe could truly happen. Don't get me wrong I love a good zombie story too. This story makes the "when the shit hits the fan" idea feel realistic

My current audiobook. Since I drive a lot for work I figured this should make traffic take the form of a locomotive

This was a very good story that is told by Enzo, the dog. I'm a sucker for animal stories and this one didn't let me down. It also has the approval of Luke and Maggie.
