Vacation Post – Woot!

Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 11.45.48 PM.png

My plans for this evening include some Japanese takeout, watching Spotlight, and of course, READING. I have the next few days off of work, so I plan on getting the review for Wool up, as well as finishing Shift.

Spoiler Alert: Wool was incredible and I can’t wait to tell you about it. It’s my favorite book so far this year. I’m about halfway through Shift and enjoying it a lot.

What are you guys reading right now?

    I’m so glad you started a blog! I have been wondering about your book recommendations for a while now, so what a treat to be able to read right from the source! Right now I am reading The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. Have you read that one? I’m only a 1/4 of the way through, but it’s pretty good so far. I will have to look into these other books you are recommending. I need a few good reads! Nothing like getting lost in a good book 🙂

      Thank you so much for reading and for being my very first commenter!! I’ve wanted to start this blog for a while but have always been a bit intimidated by the thought of others reading my writing. Then I thought, that’s silly. People will either like it and read it, or they won’t. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I also had a lot of really great support from the Lady King. I have not read The Language of Flowers yet, but I own it, and it’s on my TBR for this year! I would love to hear what you think of it. As far as recommendations go, I’m happy to make some. What types of books do you normally enjoy most?

        Lately I’ve been really into non-fiction that reads like fiction (i.e. The Glass Castle and Wild), but I’ll really read anything, as long as it’s good 🙂 I love Sci fi television, so this Silo trilogy looks really good. I downloaded Wool and started reading it at lunch and it’s really good so far 🙂 So thank you!


      • TheBookQueen says:

        I thought the Glass Castle and Wild were both excellent! If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out Amy Poehler’s Yes Please! I hope you enjoy Wool. If you dig sci-fi you should check out Ready Player One, Lexicon, The Martian, Station Eleven, and Illuminae. All excellent! And my personal favorite of all time is Ender’s Game. It’s a great stand alone novel, but there is also a whole series around it. Let me know what you think of Wool!

    J and I are working on our book challenge for 2016. It is basically a book a week but each book has to fulfill a different criteria. I am currently reading Dingley Falls which is a book published in the year I was born, so now I can mark that one off the list. 🙂
    J is reading Ready Player One to mark off a book set in the future.
    I will be using some of your books for my list.

      That sounds a bit like the challenge that the Lady King is participating in this year. I’ve never heard of Dingley Falls, what’s that about?
      Ready Player One is in my top 5 favorite sci-fi books of all time. It was so much fun to read.
      I’m glad to hear that my recommendations are helpful! I realize that so far the majority of my posts have been about dystopian sci-fi. I’m going to switch it up when I finish the Silo Series. 🙂

        Dingley Falls has been a challenge. There are seriously 62 characters in the story. There is even a character guide in the back for you to refer to. I am about halfway through the book and am still trying to keep everyone straight. Ha! I will let you know how it turned out.
