Love this whole couple of paragraphs. Most especially: “God gives us only one life. But with good books, we can live a hundred, even a thousand lives in the time we are allotted on this earth.”

Anyone have any recommendations for a 9 year old boy who absolutely devoured Harry Potter, and has read the whole series multiple times? He‘s also enjoyed the Percy Jackson series.

Just finished the tagged book, and it‘s the fourth book I‘ve been able to read for #NewYearWhoDis. The Broken Earth trilogy is soooooooo incredibly good!!! I‘m so glad @CSeydel had these on her list, and gave me the kick in the pants to take these off my shelf and finally read them!! If you haven‘t read them yet I highly recommend that you do!! Pachinko was also so good. It was powerful and heartbreaking and beautifully written!!

Finished the audio for this one last night. This is the first time I‘ve read the book, but I did watch some of the show prior to reading this. I‘m not sure if my expectations were too high going in, but this one fell a bit flat for me. The weird Historical Facts thing at the end really pulled me out of the story. This just edges into a pick for me I think since I found a lot of the story intriguing.
3.5 ⭐️ continued in comments

ads0123 I think this one may have suffered a lot from the hype it‘s gotten recently, for me. It‘s super relevant for today, and it‘s definitely a book to make you think. I‘m also wondering if the audio might‘ve thrown me off a bit. The transitions between locations and times were confusing at times, and I wonder if the text had breaks that the narrator didn‘t really pause enough for. 5mo
Birdsong28 @ads0123 The historical facts at the end gives you context of the book as it's saying that Gilead is over and that they have found this memoir. It is weird tho 😁📚📖 5mo
Jerdencon I have to say that the tv series is actually way better than the book! 5mo
ads0123 @Jerdencon I‘ve watched several episodes from the first season, and I have to say I think I agree with you!! The tv show or movie being better rarely happens for me!! 5mo

I‘m not sure how I feel about this one. This had great potential, but I don‘t think it quite got there for me. The characters felt a bit underdeveloped. Also I think there were a few too many things going on at once, so nothing really got the time it deserved. I really enjoyed the premise, though. 3/3.5 ⭐️

This book was a very different feeling post-apocalyptic novel. The events that led to the “apocalypse” were suitably plausible and pretty terrifying because of that plausibility. I feel like the bones of this story could‘ve made for an amazing book, but it didn‘t quite reach its full potential. I still enjoyed it so it‘s a pick for me! 3.5⭐️

If this isn‘t the most 20-teens dedication, then I don‘t know what is! This was a fun, quick read that gave me all the nostalgic feels. I devoured goosebumps and fear street books as a kid. It‘s super silly, and obviously not the best in horror, but I enjoyed the cheesiness.
