This book, THIS book, THIS BOOK. What do you get when you cross Star Trek with Terry Pratchett's Discworld, a splash of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and any three of your favorite #fantasyseries? You get Space Unicorn Blues. #humorous and #fun with a splash of commentary on #humannature. You will LOVE these characters and hate these characters. I cheered and sobbed (literally) while reading about the aftermath of a war between humans and magical creatures (in space!). – This is a first book for author @tjberrywrites that debuts on July 3. Let's please give this book lots of love so it becomes the series it deserves to be. – – (An advanced copy of this book was provided by the publisher. THANK YOU, @angryrobotbooks ) – – #terrypratchett #discworld #startrek #hitchhikersguidetothegalaxy #douglasadams #fantasybook #fantasyseries #spacebook #unicornbook #magicalbook #humorbook #bookofsatire #lovethisbook

I LOVE THIS BOOK! If Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams had a baby and then let Toni Morrison raise it, it would be this book. Terrible deaths, fantastic deaths, good lives, not-so-good lives, humor and heart. Fun and thought-provoking. And who doesn't love Death falling in love? – – (A review copy of this book was provided by the publisher.) – @michaelpoore007 #terrypratchett #douglasadams #tonimorrison #reincarnation #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #bibliophile #booknerd #bookreview #bookaholic #bookquote #bookphotography #readthis #readersofinstagram #read #reading #readingtime #readinglist #reader #newbook #books #readingisfun #readingjunkie

Since We FellSince We Fell by Dennis Lehane

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book I’ve read by Lehane (the other being Shutter Island a ways back). I’d forgotten what a smart, smart writer he is. Very seldom is there a book that makes me read every single word. I’m a skimmer when I can be. With Lehane you must read every word, or you will miss something. Even something big.

Since We Fell is a great read! Starts out as a book about a sort of troubled young women trying to figure out who her father is. She ends up becoming a TV news reporter until she covers Haiti after the earthquake (2010); and, her life is never the same again. Then some bad things happen, some good, some terrible, and then…I can’t tell you any more. Just when you think you know what this book is about, there’s another twist – and it’s another type of book altogether. In the end, what you think is going to be a story about a crazy girl’s search for belonging ends up being a crazy good book about betrayal, your sense of self, trust, and belief. Oh, and murder.

You should read it while I go pick out my next Dennis Lehane book!
