The writing style was just odd. It made it very difficult for me to stay immersed.

I also read The Handmaid's Tale when it first came out, and later saw the movie. I was impressed by the book. Maybe some things haven't held up as well due to the many changes since it came out, but it truly made me think and still makes me shudder after all these years. I have yet to watch the Hulu series.

Started reading The Count of Monte Cristo again. I've been through it a few times. Really enjoy the story. Have to give credit to the movie for getting me interested enough to read it the first time through. Been hooked ever since.

"Beneath a Scarlet Sky" - Mark Sullivan. Its about a 17 year old trying to do his part in WWII in helping the Allies by being a spy while being the driver for a high ranking German officer. Good read.

Is it good? I love his Iron Druid series, but so far the new release price has kept me from picking this one up.

That's commitment! I hate when you get so far into a book that you feel like you have to finish it (and secretly hope it gets better).

I started listening to it and had to stop 10 minutes in, I just couldn't connect. I'll try it again another time.

I've been struggling to finish one I started 6 weeks ago (Floating City - Eric van Lustbader), felt like I was so far in I needed to finish it. It just sits on the coffee table daring me to pick it up and keep reading. Have 5 other books behind it to read...guess I need to just toss it and move on.

The Likeness by Tana French. Quite good. Audiobook is by an Irish narrator and I love hearing her accent!
