25% into the book, and it's so interesting. Can't wait until it reaches a faster pace. Very suspenseful.

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline

Very good. Would've liked it better if she didn't talk about her current life.

BookFreakOut I liked those parts the least, but I thought it was interesting to see how it affected her mentally years later even though there weren't physical consequences like jail time. She both moved on and didn't. 6y

Took me an incredibly long time to read, but very interesting. Bundy had a crazy story, and it was interesting to read it from Rule's POV, as someone who knew him.

JoeStalksBeck Just read this. Didn't go into the detail I expected was still a good read 6y

Song of Susannah | Stephen King

I actually liked this book. I know it's not a lot of people's favourite in the series, but I enjoyed this more than "Wizard and Glass".

I'm more than halfway through the book and I'm still not too sure how I feel about it.

With the entire book finished, my final verdict was that it was okay. It was very interesting in and of itself, but as a Harry Potter book, it was okay. I had low expectations, and it exceeded them, but it wasn't great. Too much hype.

Josie I really need to get my butt moving on this series! I read the first one, and own the second one, just haven't picked it up yet! #augustgoals 6y
whiteflagwarrior Honestly, it's a great series. Some parts are slow, but so far (5/7 books in) it's outstanding. 6y

Act II is over, and it ended on quite a cliffhanger. I'm starting to enjoy the book, but I still don't like Harry. I just feel like the Harry in this book isn't the Harry Potter we all know and love.

blurb
whiteflagwarrior

Act I finished...just doesn't quite feel like Harry Potter to me. I love Scorpius though. Albus seems like a little shit.

Yournewfriendsams I feel exactly the same way. 6y

Wolves of the Calla | Stephen King

100 pages left, can't wait for the final confrontation. Very interesting so far. Loved to have Pere Callahan re-introduced. He has a great story.

barry This one is high on the TBR pile. I'm going to re-read Salem's Lot first and maybe a couple of the other related texts too. Did you read Wind Through the Keyhole before Wolves? 6y
whiteflagwarrior No, someone advised me not to. I'm just gonna read it last, even though it's 4.5. 6y

Jenny Lawson truly has "a life worth writing about." I love reading her stories, especially about the crazy things she puts her husband, Victor, through. "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" is a hilarious and lovely book.

blurb
whiteflagwarrior

Lawson is such a funny woman. I love reading what she writes, and her life is very interesting thus far.

This book had its good parts and it's not-so-exciting parts, but all in all, a great, and very informative, book.

On Love | Charles Bukowski
Pickpick

Bukowski never disappoints. This was a great collection of poems, and it contained my favourite, "the bluebird".

blurb
whiteflagwarrior

Very good so far, although I found the parts about aeroplane accidents and testing guns on corpses to be quite boring for some reason.

Pretty good. I enjoyed how Ronson had a lot of examples, and actually followed up and met the shamed individuals.

Carmilla | Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Almost 50% into the book and I am loving it so far. Downloaded Serial Reader to read it, and I'm actually really enjoying the whole 'one-issue-a-day' system.

Panpan

As an autistic individual, I can say that this book is very ableist. Haddon says that he's worked with autistic individuals, and in his portrayal of the main character, seems to try to fit in every stereotype. Didn't care for the book at all.

Outstanding book that kept you guessing the whole time. Couldn't stand Libby most of the time, but I loved the POV/time switches. The ending was fantastic.

I'm 78% done and I really, really don't want to know who committed the murders. This is so nerve-wracking. A great book so far.

Beautiful Music for Ugly Children | Kirstin Cronn-Mills

What a lovely book. As I got closer to the finish, I ended up crying at work. Heartbreaking for a bit, but thankfully for Gabe, got better.

Now, I know it was written to fit the time period, but I couldn't really look past all of the ableism towards Phoebe. Also, Norah was an absolutely dreadful character.

The fourth book by Tom Cox on the subject of his wonderful cats The Bear, Ralph, Shipley, and Roscoe. The book is filled with house moves, cats, love, cats, new friends, cats, stories about Tom's dad, cats, and of course, cows. A wonderful read by a wonderful author and cat owner.

Bossypants | Tina Fey

I tried to love this as much as others I know do, and I'll admit, Tina Fey is funny, but "Bossypants" just didn't do it for me. It had its times, but was mostly just okay.

blurb

Bossypants | Tina Fey

I'm 25% in, and I really, really don't like this book. If I wasn't so determined to finish it and see what all the fuss is about among my friends, I'd bail.

ReadingEnvy Try it in audio? 6y
whiteflagwarrior @ReadingEnvy good idea. I'm about halfway in now, it's getting good, thankfully :) 6y

The First Part Last | Angela Johnson

The first of my five senior year summer reading books. Interesting, but sometimes hard to follow, and pretty sad. I'm a year older than the main character, and I can't even imagine my life like his. Well done, terribly sad ending.

Honestly, there is no doubt in my mind that Jim Gaffigan is one of the funniest men ever. I'm 80% into the book and it's so outstanding. I hope he decides to write more.

The Fireman | Joe Hill

1/4 of the way through "The Fireman" and it's very good, and very detailed. Very different from Hill's other works, in a good way.

Notafraidofwords I never read any of his work. Good place to start? 6y
whiteflagwarrior I'm not sure. I've loved every book of his I've read. I started with NOS4A2 I think, and it was outstanding. Heart Shaped Box is his first novel, though 6y
ej0728 I think that NOS4A2 is a great book to start with. He was finding his voice with Heart Shaped Box and Horns so they weren't as well written. 6y

Who I Am | Pete Townshend

This took an incredibly long time for me to read. Was it worth it? Maybe not. I love The Who, though, and that's why it's a "so-so" instead of "bail".

If you love stories about cats, preferably men with too many cats, interspersed with stories of the aforementioned man's life living in the English countryside, then Tom Cox is the man for you.

As someone who went undiagnosed as autistic for a longer than normal amount of time, this book resonated with me. I highly recommend if you want to know what it's like to be autistic, seeing as the author is.

Aside from Sue Klebold's book "A Mother's Reckoning", this would be the first book I recommend to read about the Columbine School Massacre. Much better than Cullen's "Columbine", though not as updated. Brown has first-hand, personal experience, and was friends with the killers.
