Really weird book and does read like a fever dream but kind of hard to understand what is going on and the point of the book.
It started out real interesting but started to get cheesy with lots of unnecessary added plot lines.
Heartbreaking story from a father of a meth addict. The son also wrote a book about his addiction. Real eye opener.
Reading this out of print Stephen King book.
Funny book from a librarian about the books she sees at her job and books that shaped her life.
#oursharedshelf read for November/December. Can‘t find the latest book at a library near me yet so I am reading all the books for the last months.
Been seeing this book on my Litsy feed for a few days now and saw it on Hoopla when looking for something Christmasy to listen to while I drive to my grandparents house so I couldn‘t pass it up. #blamelitsy
The artwork in this book is so pretty but simple 😍
Finally finished Rebecca and loved it! Took me way too long to read though.
Went to the science museum yesterday to see the death of natural causes exhibit and they had a display about radium and how it glows.
Listened to this to prep for seeing #bohemianrhapsody. This book was so good! Somebody to Love shows Freddie Mercury's rise to fame with Queen as well as the story of AIDS. The juxtaposition was just perfect because it gives background to what the 1980's gay scene was like during the epidemic and how Freddie was affected by it and in denial. This is the story that should of been made into a movie.
It‘s my birthday! I celebrated with friends and family yesterday so today is all about getting free birthday perks and relaxing! I have gotten a free pizza (Grimaldi‘s), coffee (Starbucks), little cake (Nothing Bundt Cake), cookies (Nestle Toll House), and movie tickets (Star Cinema Grill). Thankfully I don‘t have to use them all today.
A bit confusing and I even learned about the great recession and its causes when I was in business school, but from what I gather from this book, many professionals in trading and finance don't even understand the market all that well. So I feel better. Entertaining to learn about a handful of people who were being dismissed for thinking Wall Street was wrong and decided to go against what everyone else was doing.
Long book but worth the read. Orisha is ruled by a king who killed people possessing magic, including the main character's Zelie's mother. Magic has a chance to come back and Zelie has to work with an unlikely person, the king's daughter, to get to the designated location while avoiding the king's son who is hiding a secret. There are some slow parts and eye rolling YA romance, but the story and writing of the emotions more than make up for it
At the start of the book, Graham is reminiscing about his childhood and wonders at what point did his abuser decide he was going to molest him. The Boy with the Perpetual Nervousness has moments of humor which makes this book bearable to read since it is about a very dark subject. It's heartbreaking but also empowering to know he gets to tell his life's story and confront what he went through.
