Prime Read picks

Being a member of amazon prime, I can “borrow/read/return” books through them. The limit is 10 at a time and the selection has been decent I think. I have bot heard much or nothing of the books I have picked and honest are mostly cover picks and genre picks then based on synopsis.

I also receive Amazon read firsts where I can pick 1 of 6 new releases for the month as a “pre release” bonus thing..for a lack of a better word. That will be a separate post. This one is for my Prime picks only, that I am interested in reading.

Please let me know if you have read any of them .

Happy reading

Podcast review: The Sporkful

I listened to episodes:

“This hot dog tastes like home”

From a coney dog (which sounds really good, I need to try one) in Detroit, Michigan

To a deep fried hot dog in New Jersey.

“The design genius of the club sandwich”

And “when will indian food be american food”

This is a hilarious podcast for eaters. (The intro even says, for eaters not foodies, whatever the difference lol)

It’s pretty funny and interesting.

Happy listening

(I listened to this podcast on iheartradio)

The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo *book review/spoilers/dnf’d

Trigger warning: abusive parent,

There is two characters that is followed in this book. And it follows Asian superstitions.

Ren is a young teen who has made a promise to his mentor/ father figure, whom is on his death bed, too find a missing part of a finger so he can bury it with said mentor. Within 40 something days of his death so his soul can rest.

Paths will somehow cross with Jin who is trying to pay off her mothers gambling debt with her regular job as well as a side job (which is risque).

When all of a sudden she ends up with small glass vile that contains, a finger.

They each have a path to take that has to do with the finger.

There is a believed to be a man eating tiger that has started killing people.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think this book moved too slow for me. I was interested in the characters and the story, and maybe I didn’t give it enough time, but I struggled to stay focused on reading it.

I would like to give this another go sometime, but I’m going to let this go for a little bit. I believe I dnfed it at 100 pages.

The cover is absolutely amazing though..

Happy reading

Winter by Marissa Meyer *book review

I had decided to DnF this book a little bit ago because I was struggling to get it started. I had picked it up one more time and gave it a full shove in progress and glad I did. This. Retelling is bases on Snow white, and includes the previous characters picking up where things left off from previous books. That being said I can’t go into this too much but I did like this one probably the most so far.

I find the pairing of characters well matched. And I have my hopes for a future for Ky and Cinder.

4.5/5 stars

Fear nothing by Dean Koontz *Try a chapter*

I have the physical copy of this book but I also found it on an audiobook via Youtube.

I’m going through my books on my shelves and so there might be more posts like this for a little bit.

How many chapters in: 4

Thoughts:

I think this could be interesting but it could end up not being interesting either lol. I have not yet been disappointed by what I have read by him, however, I have read some synopsis and chose not to read it because it didn’t sound like something I would like.

Its also interesting that whenever I get in a reading slump, if I pick one up by him and like the book then it pulls me out. Weird.

Keep or Donate: Going to keep it long enough to read. Then I will donate it.

I will be posting a review when I have finished, or if I don’t finish then I will talk about it too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy reading
