Just finished this book at lunch. Yet again, loved it! Although after that ending I'm furious and have so many more questions! Hopefully they'll all be answered in #Identity2018

Wanted to read this one before the movie came out and apparently everyone else at the library had the same idea. So I went to the used book store and bought a copy instead.

Just finished this and I'm in tears. So good! Beautiful imagery, like reading poetry. And these characters that you just fall in love with... Especially the narrator!

Absolutely fascinating. Quiet science heavy in some parts (for this English major at least) but still an interesting look into the history (and future) of dementia.

It's only been 10 pages and I already despise all men. This is going to be interesting.

This book was good, not great. Hanks is a talented writer, but I just didn't relate to any of the characters. Look for my full review tomorrow on the blog! WhatStaceyReads.wordpress.com

Finished this last night. This book was so boring! It has no plot and not even any interesting scenes until after page 300. Really bummed with my first #BOTM selection.

Now starting this one thanks to @thereadingwomen podcast. It's my first Flannery, and maybe not the best place to start, but it's far less daunting than the copy of her collected works.

thereadingwomen It‘s actually not a bad place to start. 😊 Her smaller collections are also a good place to start for her nonfiction. - A 2y

Absolutely loved this! Jenny Lawson is hilarious and I saw a much funnier version of myself in her writing. Highly recommend, especially for those with depression and/or anxiety, and those that love someone with depression/anxiety.

Made it to the halfway point of this book during my lunch break and discovered this little guy on the cover under the dust jacket.

This week's read. I wasn't interested in this book when it first came out, but I've since realized that I also have anxiety in addition to ever-present depression even though I'm always smiling and laughing and making a joke, so I thought this might be an interesting read.

Finally finished and oh my gosh this is such a beautiful book! I never thought I would be that interested in it, but after I watched the movie I figured I would give it a go. I'm so glad I did! This story is written so beautifully and is so well detailed that I can easily picture it in my mind. Love this book! Stay tuned to the blog for a full review on Wednesday.

Time to start book number 41 of the year. I watched the movie a few weeks ago and it was pretty good. Figured I would give the book a go as well.

This was a very weird book, but I was still intrigued enough to keep reading. A very intricate story, told with too many big words. Keep a dictionary handy!

Picked out my second #BOTM selection this morning! I'm a little skeptical about this one but very interested.

WhatStaceyReads @Reviewsbylola I haven't read many short stories so I'm curious to read this one. 2y

I just couldn't get into this book. The writing is so difficult to understand. I managed to get through 130 of it's 183 pages and though it's tempting to just finish it because I've come so far, I just can't.
