Anyone else so super excited to watch this movie?! Last time I waited until after the movie to read the screenplay so I wouldn‘t spoil it for myself. However, I really wish it was a novel but hey, I‘ll take what I can get! Baby nifflers for everyone 😆 #magicmonday

Mehso-so

I wanted to read this book before watching the series on HBO. I was slightly disappointed. I was hoping the plot twist would be the Mom or Amma had nothing to do with it because I figured it was going to be them. Also I kept thinking of the movie The 6th Sense where the mom was poisoning her child until she died. It was okay. Not my favorite.

Jinjer Exact same for me.😡 1y

So one of my advisory students is reading this book for her book club and she got in trouble with her reading teacher. I took her to my room and told her if she would read the book, I would read it to so we can have our own mini book club so she could get credit for her class. It‘s pretty good so far!

So I‘m giving #librarything a chance. I just downloaded the app and started to catalogue my books. I haven‘t figured out how to import anything from my amazon account (I‘m not sure it can be done though the app.) I like the barcode scanner but it doesn‘t register what book it is all the time (might be the due to the BOTM cover 🤷🏻‍♀️)

KathyWheeler Sometimes it doesn‘t find paperback isbns either. Still the best for cataloging books. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage You can also download from Goodreads and import into LibraryThing, if you have lists there. 2y

Ironically many Christmases ago, my mom asked me if I wanted a kindle (it was new technology back then 😂) but I told her no. I thought I would hate using something electronic to read books. I loved real books. (She got it for me anyway) Fast forward to today and about 6 kindle upgrades later, I can‘t imagine going anywhere without one. #teamkindle

TommieMarie74 It‘s funny how that works. I guess sometimes moms really do know us best. 2y

I really want to read this before I see the movie but I‘m pretty sure I won‘t get my library hold for at least another month or so. Is it worth the splurge? #nospoilers

jpmcwisemorgan I‘ve not listened to the audio but I‘ve heard it was good, Whil Wheaton did it. @JoScho What do you think of the audio version? 2y
JoScho @jpmcwisemorgan I am really enjoying. Wheaton is great and I am not an audiobook girl. 2y

Elisa @jpmcwisemorgan I just finished the audiobook and if you absolutely want to read the book before you watch the movie, the audiobook is definitely the way to go IMO. Like @JoScho, I‘m not usually an audiobook girl but Wil Wheaton does a great job. I wouldn‘t have gotten through this otherwise. 2y
jpmcwisemorgan @Elisa I‘ve read it twice but haven‘t listened to it. I‘ve considered listening to it just for Whil Wheaton. (edited) 2y

I thought it was a pretty good adaptation. I like how they incorporated the texting as “actual” conversations in her architecture models. The astronaut scenes were a little meh in my opinion. Overall I liked it. Thoughts?

I couldn't sleep so I spent the night finishing this book. The ending was so abrupt and left me with more questions and just frustrations. The book has many dry parts that I skimmed past hoping for more than I actually got. Did Scott Bean have multiple personalities? Like I just really don't understand. And the "kidnapping part", that could have been developed so much better. Just too many loose strings. PASS!!

LiteraryinLititz I thought the end was pretty problematic too. A strange book. 3y
