  1. I seriously need to stop finding other books to read and reread the Handmaids Tale. It was one of my favorites the year I read it and I've been meaning to give it another read given recent events and the TV show (which looks amazing imo).

    I've been thinking about picking up Turtles All the Way Down, but I've been so horribly disappointed in the past that I'm leery.

    Giant Days! How did I miss that you'd been reading these? I wasn't particularly sold on the first volume, but depending on how much panic reading I need to do next month I may be picking up another volume or two since my library has digital copies.

    1. No, read ALL the books. I enjoyed Handmaid - it was my first time reading it this year and it scared me.

      If you've been disappointed by John Green in the past, I wouldn't jump for Turtles. I don't think it's his best work.

      I think we did actually flail about this already. We have the first three volumes in my school library (yay!).
