    My review of the Anne of Green Gables series: I read this series from book 1 - 8 straight through by "immersion read" using the audiobook accompanied by the e-book companion. I really loved it, book 8 was as good as book 1 and overall it was worth the 75 hours I put into reading this magnificent series.

    Starting Starter Villain later tonight!

    I have two going at the moment, A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (fantasy) and The Hooligans (WWII historical fiction) by P.T. Deutermann. I am about halfway through each.

    The Heart of What Was Lost (The Last King of Osten Ard #0.5) by Tad Williams. This is a prequel to the next book which starts an epic series, it is shorter and ties together the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn books with the next ones.

    I hit part 4 and realized that I don't really have much idea what is going on, I will have to jump back to the beginning of part 3. I was listening on Audiobook and was quite distracted by other things going on at the same time. (I live in Michigan and yes, Detroit going to the Championship game for the second time ever is a big deal. The first time, I know I am dating myself, I was in high school, '91.):

    Wanderers (Wanderers, #1)
    by Chuck Wendig

    Catfish_Fan Posts: 382 Member
    I finished Wanderers, it was 32 1/2 hours long on audio. I was able to listen while walking so it was a win-win there, but I read a lot every day by immersion reading too and I have to take a break tonight for my book hangover, also to get rid of this eye strain headache.

    Next up is book 2 in the series, Wayward, at 34 1/2 hours. I hope it is as good as book 1 which I rated 4 stars.

    Um, yeah, that book series was really really long, but I loved it, it was great! It was a rough subject, he started writing about a pandemic before a real pandemic started, and then was writing book two in the midst of a real life pandemic, which wasn't really prophetic (the pandemic had been predicted) but creepy nonetheless. I didn't think I could handle a dystopian pandemic book set just yet but Chuck Wendig did a great job and is now on my authors to be read list! He nailed so many topics right on the head, as a reader and an author we see eye-to-eye.

    I'm now reading one of Chuck Wendig's YA novels, Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy book 1) and it doesn't even clock in at 8 hours long. I'm interested in this author's other works.

    Blightborn (Book 2 of the Heartland Trilogy) was weaker than book 1, but book three, The Harvest, is starting out well. The good things about these YA fantasy books are that they are in Kindle Unlimited (with audiobook) and they aren't too long.

    I'm also reading The Last Ranger by Peter Heller.
