Only about a third into this, and it's good, but so freaking disturbing.
Such an excellent book filled with so many great optimistic lines. This is a library book, but I'll be buying my own copy soon. This is a book I'll definitely be re-reading.
I have to share this super funny book with you all! It had me laughing out loud on every page, and pretty much every paragraph.
His dad reminded me of mine - hard working veteran with a bit of a foul mouth.
Excellent book even if it might be a bit problematic for some.
I read The Winter People a few years ago, and that book started my love for Jennifer McMahon stories.
And though I still have several of her backlog to read, this will be the next I consume.
Have you ever read a book that completely redefined your taste in different genres?
I finished my second middle grade story of the year, and I loved it! Where were these stories when I was younger?
This was dark and scary, yet still very age appropriate. The setting was so entrancing and the characters were well developed. I'm definitely interested in seeing where the sequel takes us!
Sometimes I can listen to an audiobook on its own, but I think I need to pick up a copy of this book to readalong in. I'm so lost.
Also, I'm not digging the narrator.
A little lost on what to read next:
1. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
2. Carry On
3. From Twinkle, with Love
Two worlds that I can't wait to re-enter this year, and one new release that has brought me so much joy.
What books are you looking forward to during the second half of 2018?
Sleep more - I never get enough as is
Clean - I would rather not poison myself or others
Don't force it. Take the reading break and try something new during it. Crochet, hike, yoga, volunteer, whatever.
The books will always be there waiting and willing to be read when you're ready.
I love readathons! Here's my tentative TBR for the Scallywagathon created and co-hosted by BookTubers HardbackHoarder and Read All The Books.
It's going to be so much fun!
I don't know what it is, but collections take me forever to get through. I can finish a 500 page book in a day, but it takes me weeks if it's short stories.
Anyone else deal with mental blocks like this when it comes to your reading?
I didn't like Bird Box, and I know that a lot of people really did. If you did, I'd recommend picking this one up.
If you've never read Josh Malerman and want to read a horror novel, this isn't one. It's a mix of Western, thriller, and something that attempts horror, but never quite manages it. It's a bizarre story that follows too many characters in too few pages. Another excellent concept unrealized.
This was an outstanding one-off and may have had some of my favorite gods/themes in these additions.
Kieron Gillen mixed a traditional comic set up with prose and it worked incredibly well (though the prose was a tad flowery at times for my tastes). The art was beautiful and added so much depth to this story (as per usual).
Cannot gush enough about this series!
I'm absolutely loving this so far! The writing was a bit jarring for the first 20ish pages til I got used to it.
Do you ever wish you were at the end of a book because you so desperately want to know what happens now? And just can't wait to get there? That's where I am with this book.
