Goodreads Summary:

A violent storm, affectionately known as Maria, sweeps through California and changes the lives of many in its path.

My Thoughts:

I think that’s the shortest Goodreads Summary I have ever posted!

My Review:

Storm promised to be a good thrilling time, but I was bored. This was meant to be a slow build but not only was I bored, I just wasn’t feeling it. So what’s “it” about? Storms. Sorry. Couldn’t help it lol.

Storm is about a hurricane named Maria. It’s about her slow build up to a place in California that’s desperately in need of water, suffering a drought. This was set back in the early days but it kinda felt similar to today’s choppy weather. It’s good writing and interesting notes about how weather is gathered and what scientists in weather all do and how they do it. It’s about preparing for the unexpected and horrific strong hurricane’s that comes out of nowhere. It’s about survival of the fittest.

It wasn’t a bad read. I dnf’d at about 45% of the way through, however. I might return to it though I doubt it.

My Rating:

2 ⭐.

Until next time,

-Pass Me That Book

Thanksgiving Book Haul!

I bought more books and I can’t deny

I got more than I wanted to buy

There’s always a reason why

I’m not allowed to go in alone. 

It doesn’t rhyme, I know, but it’s the honest truth-I spent maybe forty-five minutes and came out with nine books, *barely* staying in budget. I don’t know if any of the rest of you have this issue about loosing track of time when in a bookstore, but it’s one of my ultimate curses! Down below are the new books that I’ve received:

And those are the books that I’ve gotten. Apparently, “She” is a classic, and I hadn’t realized it at the time when getting it. It was only two dollars at Half Priced Books (20% off allll items, which made my budget much better), and most of the books I got were under $5, the most expensive book I got being the brand new The TwistRose Key at just under $7. I would’ve gotten more books, if I’d the money. I especially wanted to buy book three and four of the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas, but it was out of budget.  Maybe next time?

If you’re interested in me writing up a review for any of these, please don’t hesitate in asking in the comments. I’m torn about which one to start, but I have to wait until I finish the few library books that I’ve gotten. I just started the City of Lies novel by Victoria Thompson, and I’m also reading The Library of Fates (by a different author) as well.

So what books did you wind up getting for Thanksgiving? Are you reading anything good? Let me know!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful bookish thanksgiving!

That’s me signing off.

Now, pass me that book!
