I’m really glad I finally read this book! You know when a cover just sticks out to you and you can’t seem to help but get drawn to a book, because of it? That was Montana 1948 for me. I saw it so many times at thrift stores and finally picked it up, because I just love that cover! I am very happy I got to it quickly after that and I enjoyed the story. I ended up giving it 3 stars.
“We don’t own truth. Truth is truth and nothing you can do about it even if you hide it, or kill it, or even tell it. It was truth before you open your mouth and say, That there is a true thing.”
I am not one to usually give trigger warnings, because honestly I just forget to and generally mention it in my review anyway, but for this book:
Trigger warnings: LITERALLY ALL OF THEM. Yes, even that one. And that one! Oh you thought that would never be allowed in a book?? Well it’s in here!
Sooo I’m gonna be honest with you guys. I really liked this book. A lot! But, I would definitely hesitate before recommending it to anyone I know in real life 😅. It is SO DARK. I am having such a hard time rating it, too. The story and the writing and the characterization – all phenomenal. But some of the subject matter is wildly violent and disturbing…..Yeahhhh, I’m still gonna go 4.5 stars, I think. It was really good, okay! Don’t @ me!
So I got wrapped up in some booktube videos the other day (it happens) and I came across this book tag on Kat’s paperbackdreams channel here. I have not heard of this one before, but it sounded fun! I am a salty human sometimes (many times), so saying NOPE to a bunch of things is right up my alley. 😅
“He stood there for a moment looking around the silent room, shaking his head slowly. All these books, he thought, the residue of a planet’s intellect, the scrapings of futile minds, the leftovers, the potpourri of artifacts that had no power to save men from perishing.”
Well friends, since I have mentioned this book so many times in my book tags over the past few weeks, I decided to finally post a review for you guys. Yay motivation!
I Am Legend is not a huge book, based on length alone, but the weight and gravitas of this story goes beyond any measure. It is a haunting story that has been one of my favorites since high school. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for something creepy or just something that doesn’t seem to be that well known, but is truly amazing. I mean, everyone knows Stephen King, but do they know that he had this to say? “I think the author that influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson. Books like I Am Legend were an inspiration to me.” And really, in King’s best novels that I have read, he emulates the subtle, creeping sense of dread that Matheson writes so well. This book is not just for fans of the horror genre, but anyone wishing to delve into the mind of the last living man on earth, as his world is slowly taken over by vampires.
Hey, ya’ll! I’m back at it again with a Book Tag Tuesday! Woo! And hopefully I can keep ’em coming this time.
So, I checked the deep recesses of the interwebs and I did not find a specific tag like this. However, if there is one that I am not aware of, please let me know and I will give credit where credit is due. And, like always, please feel free to join in!
To express my excitement over the slightest, tiniest hint of cool weather being felt here in Florida, please enjoy this Autumn Book Tag 🙂
I found this tag on A Book Lover’s Playlist.
What’s up, my bookies? 😛 I hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday! For this book tag, I created one myself!! Yay, I am so excited! I did search for a horse book tag like this and did not find any, but if anyone knows of one already out there or has created one themselves, please please let me know! I will definitely add credit for the creator.
Alright, let’s get to it! If you’re holding your horses, feel free to let them go now 😉
I am very sorry that I’ve been AWOL for so long! Things have been crazy, but they are finally settling down. Hopefully Hurricane Maria leaves us alone! For now, I’m back with a tag I read over at The Nameless Book Blog and thought would be pretty fun. So, do I dare?? (Sidenote: that’s also a literary quote tattoo I have. Can you guess from where? 😉 )
Gilmore Girls Book Tag
Gilmore Girls is a funny, fast-paced TV show about Lorelai, a young mother, and her book-aholic daughter, Rory. It explores their relationship, both as mother and daughter, and as best friends. They live in charming Stars Hollow with a whole crew of wacky townies, and of course, hilarity ensues. This has been one of my favorite shows since middle school (just don’t mention the revival), so I was very excited to do this book tag! I discovered this tag via The Bookshop Cafe.
Hello! I’m back with another Book Tag for Tuesday! For this tag I thought I might be making up my own, but then I did some research and lo and behold!!! there was a Dog Breed Book Tag already out there. The creator is Maggie @ MassachusettsNovel and it looks great!
