#endtablebookreview of #wild by @cherylstrayed  Pretty interesting story. Makes me want to hike. I will say that after doing a very easy hike in North Georgia last week I would definitely need to up my fitness and gear to be able to even remotely set out on something like Strayed went out on. Cheryl has a hell of a time on the Pacific Coast Trail and she writes it out well. For me personally some of the book drug on and felt unnecessary but I can see how this book fits more of a motivational life story than just a hiking tale. I just felt like I kept getting to the end and then it wasn't the end ha. Enjoyed the book and look forward to watching the movie rendition soon.  3.5 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿป #hiking #pct #pacificcoasttrail #mountains #beers #boots #vintage #vans #trail #camping #bookstagram #bookworm #bookreview #review #reading #amreading #deadpool #campfire #cherylstrayed #starved

#endtablebookreview of #noonecanpronouncemyname ๐Ÿ‘”by @rakeshsatyal  Page turner. I got through this book with ease. Satyal has a smooth writing style. Lots of characters introduced throughout the book. Had a hard time deciding who was the main character I was supposed to be  keeping up with. But the common factor among them was literally name pronunciations... all of the characters had surprisingly hard names for me to pronounce :) A fairly uplifting story with serious issues meshed in. I really enjoyed this book and have a new author I will enjoy following.  4 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ ๐Ÿบ #bookstagram #bookworm #beers #review #reading #amreading #picador #rakeshsatyal #bookreview #novel #literature #writing #tie

#endtablebookreview of #Bonfire by @therealkrystenritter  While I had a hard time not imagining Abby as Jessica Jones the whole time it really was ok because they seemed so similar I gave me a good ground for the main character. The build up in the book was definitely better for me than the resolution. Good book and quick read. I will be following Ritters work from now on for sure.

#endtablebookreview  of Smoke City by @rossonkeith is probably one of my favorite books of the year and maybe in a long while if we are being honest. Cool story, cool characters and a ease of reading that makes it fun but with real connection to the characters and their struggles. We definitely spoil this book on @littapes69 #drunkenbookreview !! Read this and tell Mr. Rosson about it and then go listen to our podcast and hear more of my drunken review. As always chat me up if you want to know more than I share here.  #smokecity is a damn good book. Thanks @meerkatpress for the hard copy and Keith for allowing me and my drunk friend Caleb a chance to read it a while back ago.

#endtablebookreview of #cleantime By #bengwin ๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’Š This book was pretty intense. And by intense I mean lots of content. It was like a version of The Truman Show written by Denis Johnson. The reality show theme of drug addicts competing to get clean sounds like something that definitely could be real on tv. You do become immersed in the story and the way the book is constructed makes you feel repeatedly like you are reading a non fictional account of a real person.  Can't wait to talk this over with Caleb on the #drunkenbookreview podcast.  I'll probably go more into my likes and dislikes. Also may need to read the Illead and the Odessey soon.  Be prepared to read if you pick this book up. For now this is my review.

"Always overdress." -Auntie Poldi This new #endtablebookreview of #auntiepoldiandthesicilianlions is OUT TODAY!! Go get this book and enjoy a great mystery with a funny and mostly drunk aunt!  I really loved this book. It's been awhile since I read a murder mystery/crime mystery story and this really hit the spot. I also learned some Italian along the way.

#endtablebookreview of #everythingeverything by @nicolayoon  Not a normal day for finishing a book. Woke up finished reading Everything Everything and then went down town and met Nikola Yoon and had her autograph my book :) On to the review!! Great book! Really loved the easy feel and read of the book. Been reading so many dense reads lately that it was nice to just enjoy a story. Felt very much like a John Green book. โ™จ๏ธSPOILER ALERTโ™จ๏ธ The twist in this book changes the whole read almost. And it's amazing that it doesn't really kill the story. I won't go into to much of what it is but it probably could have made this book even longer and even made it a different genre.  Pick this book up for sure tho. This is a good nice day book. Go to a park and sit for a few hours with it. You will probably finish it in one sitting. I struggle with rating it because I think I loved it more for how simply it read and the ease of which I blasted right through it... that aspect gets a 5 out of 5 but I think I will give it.... 4 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ Come at me if you don't agree :) #bookstagram #bookworm #beers #review #reading #amreading #book #ember #jaxbookfest #bookreview #booksigning #meettheauthor #jax #jacksonville #supportlocalwriters #writing #ya #literature #youngadult

How to Make Maximum Money with Your Coffee Shop! By Greg Perry #endtablebookreview  This book like so many business books was a bit generic at time but I did appreciate how Greg kept it coffee shop centered nearly all the way through. The writer def sounded more proficient in business than actual coffee and that hurt my rating of the book a bit. And the actual audio book was read by the writer Greg. While the book was about saving money and making it. I think Greg could have splurged on a seasoned voice actor/reader. That aside. Some of the techniques while seemingly outdated made me want to really put some things in action at @springparkcoffee . MAYBE I WILL!!

#endtablebookreview of Artemis by #andyweir Good book. After reading the Martian I was pumped to get another book by Weir. This one was definitely not edge of the seat suspense like Martian but had plenty of thrills. The idea of a moon civilization was a great setting. It gave Weir a place to let his scientific  work shine. This book was more mainstream than his previous story but still had some hurdles for my small mind to comprehend. Listening to Rosario Dawson read it to me was great and she embodied Jazz Bashara perfectly. 4 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #bookstagram #bookreview #review #reading #amreading #book #crown #audible #audiobook #listening #moon #artemis #phone #coffee #poloroid #literature #newbook #deadpool

#endtablebookreview of #thelargesseoftheseamaiden by #denisjohnson  Pretty interesting read. Again, I feel like I am missing something. This easily could have just been Jesus Son 2 for me and just like that book I found the material just so so.  I know I am in a minority about this.  I also don't care. I read each story hoping for the next one to be better. That's not good Right? I really enjoyed the last story about Elvis and stuff. And I even liked the title story. It's real. Some of it was good. None of it was really bad. Just okay. So with that it gets a just okay score for me. We will be really tearing into this book soon on @littapes69 So check that out as well. 3 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #bookreview #review #largesse #bookstagram #bookworm #beers #reading #amreading #randomhouse #justokay

The Absolutely True Diary of  Part-Time Indian by #shermanalexie on this edition of #endtablebookreview !! First thanks to @johavii for bringing this book back to my attention. Been meaning to read it a long time.  What a out of the ordinary book! Not often does a funny Native American story fall into my lap. And by funny I mean as humorous as tragedy can be. The book shows a struggle none of us will ever know or seldom will think about. It's a bout a young boy(Arnold Junior) struggling to find identity in a white world while living half time on his tribes Spokane Indian Reservation and half outside of it through his high school. Great illustrations and heart warming moments make the book incredibly easy to read. It bridges age barriers anyone from 10 to a 100 could read this book I really enjoyed this a lot! 5 out of 5 beers!!๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ
OUT TOMORROW! #thelostgirlsofcampforevermore by @skim.fu  Brought to book by @hmhbooks  A story that flashes back between summer camp and life in the present for 5 girls who all have their own unique story. I enjoyed reading this book but kinda got lost midway through. SPOILER POSSIBLE. I thought the stories would interconnect more in present time after the summer camp trauma but it was really just a "where are they now" thing... you really start to love the characters and definitely wish more time could have just been spent on them being lost and fighting for survival. The characterization was amazing tho... you get lost in them. Just wanted more of a connection to the main lost kids theme, ya dig? My favorite character was Andee(think I spelled that right) Going to read more of Kim's books here in the future! Pick this book up tomorrow where books are sold! 2.5 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿป #endtablebookreview
LIGHTWOOD by @stephpostauthor  First, go buy this and all of Steph's books. Get them now. They will be sought after reads as she continues to move up the ranks in literature. Lightwood reads like the best of thrillers and had the gritty feel of southern hometown drama. Living only an hour from the setting in this book it really had a powerful feel. The bad guys are bad and the good guys are sort of bad... makes for tricky scenarios and leaves you kind of guessing who will come out on top. ***** SPOILER TIME *****(SORT OF)  Judah seems to be the main protagonist but is almost over shadowed by Ramey. That may be my only critique on the book. I almost wish Ramey had more accreditation. She seemed genuinely more of a boss than Judah. Mean while... Tulah was the perfect bad lady and pretty pumped her terror seems to be alive still in the end.  Excited for more Post! 4.5 beers out of 5 ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿป
The Fourth Transformation! By @scobleizer and @shelisrael On this exciting new !! Let's hope the future is not as terrifying as I think it will be. Let's hope tech just brings people together and some level of privacy can be retrained.  Chances are this will not be the case. This book examines what our next ten years will be like with VR becoming the standard and a gradual switch to glasses instead of handheld devices. I totally agree. I couldn't really handle the narrator's voice in this audio or maybe it was just how the writers wrote the book. I want to read about tech but not feel the level of condescension that comes with that haha! If you don't know how big a deal VR is you should get this book. It will probably be old news if you are all about that virtual and Augmented reality world. I did like that they are calling this new Generation the Minecraft Generation, that's cool.  I'm giving this one ... 3.5 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿป #endtablebookreview
#endtablebookreview of Sleeping Beauties by @stephenking and his son #owenking  I really wanted to like this book. It had all the trappings of a book that would terrify and keep me in suspense but it fell kinda flat as I progressed. The terror of losing our female population to a coma inducing cocoon was such a great premise and I had all these ideas of what could happen next. But sadly what happened was not quite as impactful as I would have liked. That's just me. I see how and what they were going for but I just wanted almost something more brutal.  There were also 800 characters and I had a really hard time connecting to a single one or giving a shit if they lived or died. That's become way more important to me as I keep reading things. Still a King fan son or father King. So I will still keep picking these books up. This was just not a favorite. 3 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ
#endtablebookreview of The Chalk Man by @cj.tudor  Damn, lots of throw backs to IT with this one. Not sure if IT was intentional or not but I felt kind of at home reading it. Creepy. This book has you just a bit uncomfortable the whole time and beautifully unlike IT(sorry for so many mentions) it's not 1.3k pages long! The pacing is great and keeps you in suspense while still giving relevant story. Thanks C.J. for this book. Hope for many more! This book is still new guys!

Got this for Chirstmas and really enjoyed reading it while watching Bob Ross paint of Netflix. Thanks to my lil sister @hannahnorman61816 for the great gift. The biography alone was great.

I finished a book!  Jesus' Son by #denisjohnson  Feels like it's been a while since I posted or fully finished a book. So I started this book thinking I would crush it in like two days. Nope.  More like two weeks. Not the books fault. I just had lots of stuff going on.  Anyway... this was gritty and sad and hard edged. Kinda what I thought it would be. Short stories are stereotypically sad or cruel or filled with dissatisfaction. I mean this in the best way. But for real. There are not very many happy short story collections. Please let me know if you have one I should read. This book was hyped up a lot and with his recent death I saw it promoted quite a bit more. I felt like a lot of these characters could be easily placed in a good Chuck Palahniuk book... which is real cool. But I don't know if I personally enjoyed the book so energetically as some. Like anything or real literary merit tho this book just may need some re reading and discussion with people who know of it. Whew...this is a long review.

Turtles All The Way Down by ๐Ÿข I am always pumped for a new John Green book but this one kinda fell short for me. I think I would have liked to have seen the characters in a different setting. I had a hard time liking or gaining any real feeling toward Aza(the main character) she eventually grew on me and I understand what Green was intending with her character. It was definitely a difficult journey being in her shoes. I was just not as compelled with this book as I was with his other work. Davis and his side of the story just seemed weak to me for story functionality. Could have been same story without crazy missing billionaire dad. I still enjoy the hell out of Greens writing but just wish it was a different setting. 3.5 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #endtablebookreview
The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman! Thanks first of all to @prhaudio for letting me experience this book for review! I have never read any of Pullmans work before but now I am a fan. This book was full of great adventure and memorable characters. I like the demons attached to people. The world Pullman creates in general is so Harry Potter esque that it makes me want to rewatch them or movies like them ... kinda bummed this is only part 1 but that's also damn exciting! Listening this on CD was a bit tough but you for sure should pick this up in print or on audible status. #endtablebookreview
#endtablebookreview of #FinalGirls by @riley.sager  This is maybe the first time I read a book and felt like I was watching a horror movie. There is no way this won't be adapted to film. It's got a classic horror plot and feel and just the right amount of terror.  I found myself losing interest in some parts but it managed to grab my attention back into the story pretty quickly. This is also the First @bookofthemonth book I have actually read since getting the service and I think it was actually my first book pic as well.

#endtablebookreview of JONI The Anthology Wow! I knew little to nothing of Joni Mitchell before getting this book from the lovely people at @picador NOW...I know an insane amount about her and her music. I would see a song title and play it as I was reading. This made for DOUBLE LEARNING! I actually enjoyed the way this book was laid out. A series of interviews and reviews of Joni's work and music from the 60's to 2014... lots of repeating(kind of a drag) but that was also kinda cool(the jury is out) because now I am a Joni Mitchell specialist and know tons about her. More than possible most great musicians I am fond of. You will definitely get some knowledge from this book and I kinda hope more celebs have books like this cuz it seems like a sure fire way to really get to know them and their work. 4 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #jonimitchell #Joni #picador #anthology #music #rock #pop #jazz #folk #bigyellowtaxi #beers #bookstagram #bookreview #review #reading #books #interview #guitar #change #amreading #knowledge #literature #bookworm #barneyhoskyns #arc #new
Felt in the Jaw by Kristen N. Arnett @madamebrovary  Short stories have been way more common in my repitoire of reading and this book is a collection of shorts that you literally feel in the jaw. No punches pulled on these darkly humored and often sad stories. Life is not always sunny and happy and real life can be stark and brutal. This book gives you real life. I wish there could have been a few happier endings but like I said that's not a typical way things go. The writing itself keeps you locked into each story and almost every story I didn't want it to end. I kept saying maybe this is the last one and I get 40 more pages of this story... Kristens book is still oh so new and you should go snag a copy asap! Also looking forward to doing a drunken book review of this book soon on littapes.com 4 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #endtablebookreview #feltinthejaw #splitlippress #bookstagram #bookworm #beers #review #bookreview #story #shortstories #brasstacks #read #books #reading #amreading #literature #monday #fiction #shortfiction #writing #supportlocalwriters
Damn. I am a day late.  V for Vendetta by #alanmoore and #davidlloyd  Tried to get this read and reviewed yesterday on November 5th but just got caught up. Finished it this morning and very happy with this Graphic Novel! The movie took about 2 or 3 shots for me to really appreciate it and every year I try to watch it on the 5th. This year I wanted to throw back to where it started. So Good. If you don't read comics and just want a novel to pick up instead of singles this is a great purchase... just hit up @superhero_hive and they will get you a copy! V is such a bad ass and what I loved most about this is you only really see him being a mysterious bad ass ... he does what he sets out to do.

Oh the epic tale of #bunnicula the Vampire Bunny Rabbit! Fun. Short. Kid friendly spooky story. I know I just missed the Halloween finish date but I had a date with a lady and a movie called Hocus Pocus. To the review... cool illustrations, easy to read but kinda lacking any real defining moments. Very light hearted and I almost wish more evil was involved. All the same there are sequels and maybe that's where the evil lurks.

It is Halloween! So reading some scary books! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ”ช๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽƒ Geralds Game by @stephenking  I am a sucker for a good King book... especially when a movie or tv show is attached. Probably makes me less of a fan but I am trying. This book was an unexpected journey. Wondering how the Netflix movie will play out. This book got right to the meat and potatoes. Kind of took a weird turn but I am sure I am missing the deeper meaning behind the turn. Between this book and @gabriel_tallent 's #MyAbsoluteDarling I could probably use a book that doesn't deal with incest ha! (Part of that turn the book takes)  Anyway book was good.

#endtablebookreview of #thefirstday by @robbiesleftboot Phil Harrison. (Be careful of spoilers in following...) Ok... I liked the feel of this book for the first half. It literally read itself to me. I was kind of entranced in the story/characters/setting and then it kinda switched up on me. The back end was so much change. The sceneries the character and even the plot seemed to be whole apart from the begin.  The cover is beautiful and while diconjointed to me it was still wonderfully written. It just lost me after perspective change mid way through.  I would love to hear someone else's take on the book so hit me up and we can talk.

They say never judge a book by its cover. This is a prime example of that statement.(possible spoilers to follow)  What an incredibly dark and terrifying story. Gritty and intense. I put it down a few times incredulous to how brutal it was. Definitely a powerful read. And not at all for the faint of heart.

PRIVATE by @jamespattersonbooks and Maxine Paetro Here is the thing. I didn't read this actual book. I listened to it for free cuz @audible_com is cool and sometimes throws freebies out there. Soooo I was thinking about giving this book away! Like a #giveaway but how should I do it!?! The book was good. Definitely a typical Patterson quick read thriller. Plenty of action and light humor. I didn't really research but I think this is the first of a couple PRIVATE books. I give is 3.5 out of 5 beers๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿป Sooo back to the giveaway part.  Give me a really great reason why I should ship you this hardback book and tag a friend that really likes James Patterson or me or beer or books in general.  #endtablebookreview #bookstagram #bookworm #private #jamespatterson #freebie #review #book #bookreview #thriller #suspense #detective #reading #amreading #beers #maxinepaetro #audible #audiobook #friends #books
#endtablebookreview of  The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell When someone says hey I want an easy read... tell them to pick this up. 40 pages and to the point. Pretty terrifying also. This version is strange. Got it for super cheap off Amazon. Doesn't even have the original publishing date in the begin. It looks like a home published book. Definitely want to get a better more legit copy.  4 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #themostdangerousgame #hunting #shortstory #richardconnell #biggame #survival #deathswamp #beers #book #bookstagram #bookworm #money #playstation #hunt #review #reading #amreading #game #scary #adventure #read #books

Who watches the Watchmen? 2nd times a charm. I read this a long time ago. So long ago that #Borders was a place you could by books from. The @dccomics universe is about to cross paths with the #Watchmen universe so what better time to read up on this amazing comic. A whole different take on superheros and the psyche behind them. This book is still ground breaking 30 years later! It's crazy knowing this content was even available in the 80's well ahead of its comic time. #alanmoore is a comic genius! Dave Gibbons artwork is amazing! If you have not read the Watchmen you should do so. I am going to now watch the film. I remember it being an ok adaptation but remember being a little disappointed.  Hopefully now that I have reread and am a bit older and wiser it will be different. 5 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบโ˜บ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #endtablebookreview #comic #graphicnovel #novel #story #dc #comics #comicbook #nightowl #thecomedien #drmanhattan #rorshach #books #reading #bookstagram #bookworm #multiverse #amreading #fortune #miller #highlife #bookreview #review #art

The Hearts Invisible Furies by @johnboyne  Wow! A terrific book! I know I get plenty of grief from listening to some of my books but this book on @audible_com was amazing. Narrated by Stephen Hogan I felt such great connection to the story with his wonderful voice. The story was incredibly enjoyable. I have been reading and listening to a lot of challenging life stories lately and this one is a great view into Irish society and living life as a gay man in a world that didn't approve. I love how the book comes around on so many different things and while tragic so many times it's uplifting and lighthearted for the majority. Can't wait to read the Boy in the Striped Pajamas now. Boyne has a new fan! 5 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #endtablebookreview #bookreview #review #reading #books #theheartsinvisiblefuries #johnboyne #amreading #ireland #irish #beer #stephenhogan #audible #audiobook #phone #galaxynote8 #randomhouse #bookworm #bookstagram

OUT TODAY!! Or tomorrow!! (I'm looking into it)Happy PublishingDay!๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ“š The Book of Separation by Tova Mirvis. Damn... What an emotional book this is. This book makes me really appreciate the life I was born into. The struggle of feeling trapped has never been an issue in my life. This memoir of @tovamirvis is heartbreaking and so hard to even comprehend how difficult making her choices must have been. I loved the message this book gives. I hope that it is taken more in positive light than a negative. Like ... in a "you can change your life" sort of way. You have to live in what you believe and jeez... I can't imagine a more difficult life change then the ones gone through in this book. Really glad I got to catch this book right off the bat and glad @mspubbert threw it my way. I may have missed it otherwise!  5 out of 5 beers!!๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #endtablebookreview #review #thebookofseparation #bookstagram #bookreview #review #books #beers #bookworm #hmh #separation #reading #amreading #memoir #publishingday #new #outtoday #premier #deadpool #tovamirvis #greatbook #life #love #l9ve199lbs

Happy Publishing Day to The Asshole Survival Guide by Robert I. Sutton. Pretty good read. Feel like I need to pass this book around. Most of the content was informative. A little repetitive at times and I am not sure about some of the ideas about fighting back. Dealing with asshole people can vary so much nothing may work much less some of these tips. I give this book 4 out of 5 beers๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #endtablebookreview #bookreview #review #theassholesurvivalguide #survival #robertisutton #hmhbooks #hmh #publishingday #noassholerule #goodbossbadboss #reading #amreading #guide #beers
This book doesn't float. It's heavy. It's long.  It's going to hopefully be well represented this week for the remake. I could have did with a 500 page version of this. I won't go to crazy in depth with details about this book. It's startling(spellcheck) it's brutal. Its long winded at times. I have read King since I was 12 years old. This book pulls you in and begs you to finish it. If done well this movie coming out will make parents even more nervous about letting their kids roam the neighborhood streets.  I want more Pennywise... does any one else wish that??

Oh The Old Man and the Sea... second Hemingway book I have ever read and I really enjoyed it. Simplicity at its best. Tragic. And probably too deep for me on just one read. I am sure I missed the main point of the story somewhere. Ha! Well... reading IT has taken so long that I have started to read short books in the interim to keep up the pace for this year's reading and also to make my Instagram look cool ;) This book was a great find. It's traveled the world. Printed in London I am stoked to have something over 30 years old and not even from where I live. What a life this book has had. Such a fun short read! I give this story 5 out of 5 beers ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ #endtablebookreview #bookstagram #bookreview #review #books #beers #beers #hemingway #london #uk  #theoldmanandthesea #reading #amreading #fiction #shortstory #oldman #sea #fishing #deepseafishing #story #fishlife #whiskey #marlin #sharks #santiago #bookworm
