    Am I missing something?

    Or do you want May now?

    I forgot it was April! Someone else can take May!

    Unless we're talking about Angela Bettis in the movie of the same name!

    Waiting for the shoe to drop is why I had such a hard time putting the book down.

    From which comes my only complaint, it's a bit too long and drags in parts.

    Its a fair complaint. There were times I thought there was going to be a break in the story due to one chapter ending and another one beginning. But it kept going and going.

    I would like to take a second to praise Candace Thaxton for doing a really good job narrating. I probably would've been more annoyed with certain parts if not for her.

    If no one wants it, I say we do Monster of Florence.

    I might participate, but I don’t want to pick a title at this time.

    I'll join in. Picked it up from Audible, it weighs in at a lithe 9 hours, 50 minutes.

    @LiddyRules You want to do Monster of Florence for May? I figure I should ask since it was your suggestion and you have been wanting to read it.

    He’ll be too busy pretending he didn’t see Avengers.

    Thumbs up.

    When I see Avengers, I will let you know. I will be completely open and honest about it. As well as my thoughts, which will probably be "it was fine." But I am not going to buy advanced tickets. Fuck you. Fuck @Neon. Fuck @Jacuzzi Billy . Fuck @crippledalbino . Free ball or nothing.

    I would imagine the audiobook is WAAAAAAAAAAAY better than reading it. Not that I didn't like it, but I feel like I would have liked it even more if it were read to me.
