I‘m sad I read this so slowly because of school because I love the book! I admit that most drama-type fiction I read leaves me feeling indifferent, but this stood out for me because of the quirky protagonist. The summary is far too modest, this book is a gem. It made me laugh and I nearly cried in some parts which is not something I do with this type of genre. Very beautifully put together. Up next is Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris!

“Eyelids are really just flesh curtains. Your eyes are always ‘on,‘ always looking; when you close them, you‘re watching the thin, veined skin of your inner eyelid rather than staring out at the world. It‘s not a comforting thought. In fact, if I thought about it for long enough, I‘d probably want to pluck out my own eyes, to stop looking, to stop seeing all the time. The things I‘ve seen cannot be unseen. The things I‘ve done cannot be undone.”

Thewanderer92 I love this novel 😍 2mo
theasaurus @Thewanderer92 Eleanor‘s personality really threw me in for a loop. The summary in the back of the book doesn‘t do her quirkiness justice. This novel is superb!!! 2mo
Thewanderer92 @theasaurus I‘m glad you‘re enjoying it! Made me cry a few times lol 2mo

And I thought this book was just about some woman living a pretty stagnant life, but Eleanor is something else. I can‘t wait to read more. Though I‘m pretty drowsy at the moment. The greasy food I‘ve been stuffing myself with has made me extremely lethargic. Also, I want to have a pen pal. Anyone up for it? #nowreading

It took me a while to finish reading, what with school being back and all, but I am finally done with Girl In Pieces. The story tells of a never ending internal battle and the constant tug of war between healing and not really healing. I plan to write more about my thoughts on this book, so come check out my blog!

I have stopped reading this book because recently I‘ve just been wrapping up on my summer, and my boyfriend is in town so I had to make the most out of it. I don‘t see him for months at a time because we live in two separate towns, hours and hours apart from each other.

Sunday he will be going back to his place, sadly, and the semester will begin for both of us this Monday. Tea and Macarons before sh*t hits the fan. #summer #tea

theasaurus And I‘d like to add that hopefully I can still read throughout the semester. I had written in my blog more thoughts about The Alice Network and Illuminae, so check them out. I hope to have the time to read and write on my blog throughout the semester. It‘s my last semester in college so I hope my time management works out for a change. 3mo

Now finally reading this, but through my phone. It‘s going to be a different experience because I prefer reading with a hard copy so much more! So can someone tell me if the bfc‘s are self-started or do I have to join some organized competition to get started with a bfc? A newbie asking for a friend.

I don‘t read much about outer space dilemmas. This one is my 1st of the theme, but HOLY S#*%! From the cover to the end, everything is absolutely unique. The book is narrated through documents, reports, chats, e-mails, and wonderful graphics that pull you into the story like as if you‘re witnessing and experiencing the moment as you flip through the pages. It is unconventionally intense. And now I plan to invest on the 2nd book of the series.

Waiting on my bus so I‘m reading on the side of the road! I‘m headed to a bookstore to hunt for the next book to read. So far the book is good, though I absolutely hate Ezra & his interactions with Kady. I find it annoying that their whimsy is a little out of place. They are facing life and death in a spacecraft full of infected and they still manage to send sappy messages and joke around like it‘s another day. Ezra is too flippant. Not my type!

theasaurus Although I would like to add that the fact that his personality annoys me proves that they shaped up his character pretty well. So kudos to authors! 4mo

After finishing my previous book, I wanted to move straight to the next on my shelf. I bought this book more for its messy, document-like aesthetic. Heh. and now I wonder if I‘ll like its science-fiction/romance storyline since I‘m not big into this type of young adult fiction. Will I want to read the rest of The Illuminae Files series (Gemina & Obsidio)? We‘ll find out. If you have read it, what are your thoughts about this book?

julesG Loved it! Wasn't even expecting a romance, they broke up. I was in it for the crazy "young girl needs to save the world/spaceships" storyline - and AIDAN. ? Got all three books, got the audiobooks and recently bought the first two books in German for my son. 4mo
theasaurus @julesG now I‘m excited. ❤️ right now calls for bed time for me. It‘s a little past midnight and I have to leave early for work tomorrow. But I wish I could get started already! 4mo
julesG Have a good night! I'm starting my day with a cat sitting on my headphones. (I usually listen to an audiobook until the kids get up) 4mo

LibrarianRyan AIDEN!!! To wroth it. 4mo
theasaurus Just started getting into it recently. Wasn‘t expecting the eeriness and I‘m all about it! 4mo
theasaurus @LibrarianRyan @julesG I just finished the book!!!! It was so amazing!!! I must admit though, Ezra was driving me a little crazy with his very flippant personality. 4mo
LibrarianRyan @theasaurus I agree. Book two is different people, but you get a bit of connections back to these characters. I started out not liking book 2, but that only lasted like 50-100 pages. And that has more to do with drug use than anything. It was just as good as book 1. 4mo
julesG @LibrarianRyan agree. The drugs rubbed me the wrong way, too. 4mo
theasaurus @LibrarianRyan ooh okay! Well i look forward to reading it for myself and I hope soon. My semester is about to start and I don‘t know how busy everything will be! 4mo
LibrarianRyan @theasaurus It goes just as quick as the first book. I'm just not into reading about the drug trade. It's a plot device within the book that is only majorly present at the beginning (no spoilers here) But once the action started I was hooded. I almost liked it better than book 1. 4mo

I finally finished this book! Thank you The Alice Network for being so great. It was a bittersweet ending topped with a feel of pride and honor. Such brave women to remind us that we ladies can endure hard times. Endure. ❤️

I also thank the thunderstorm for trapping me in the library so I had the chance to read. I‘m afraid of thunder and refuse to go outside in the middle of a storm! #historicalfiction

I have been wanting to go to my city‘s downtown or some cafe but both require a bus commute that makes me anxious so I‘ve always just chosen not to go. But today I mustered up the courage and went for it as soon as I woke up. It gave me a chance to read! I‘ve owned this book for almost a year. Because of my never-ending busy schedule I never really got into reading it too much until today. A much needed break.

I‘m pretty proud of myself today.

Just started this book today! I was reading the AI book but my head was in for a spin reading that one. This one is a breath of fresh air and I already love the way it is written. Meanwhile for the AI book, there was a lot of technical jargon, on top of complicated sentences. I needed a break. Definitely going to write more about it in my blog. I haven‘t written anything new, unfortunately. It was my birthday and I got distracted for a week!

I‘m about to start a blog called “Project Book Smart” which documents my progression in reading and learning whatever it is I‘m reading about. I‘ve been out of touch with reading for a long time and I feel like I‘ve been missing out on some resourceful information I could have learned had I kept the habit strong and indulged in the art of getting lost in books a long time ago. So here‘s to hopefully what will be a lifelong hobby! #blog
