Hi, Iliana! Prepped is a fun read...and a little sad and disturbing in a parts, too, because of what Becca's parents make her do.Delete
Those doomeday preppers are something else. Some of them really go all out.ReplyDelete
They really do. And some of the preppers in this book are pretty crazy.Delete
I like the sound of Live Free. Might make me less of a worrier? Probably not...ReplyDelete
I wish there were a book that could cure someone of worry and stress. If you ever find it, let me know!Delete

As usual, some excellent haikus here! But what is a "time war"? I see that This is How... is epistolary? Don't like that format much, myself, but I have heard very good things about the book. Adding it to my TBR, thanks!ReplyDelete
Two factions are fighting to change the past and control certain timelines in order to control the future in This is How You Lose the Time War. And the two characters share letters back and forth, but the majority of the book is written in a regular narrative style.Delete
I wanted to read Time War and it slipped by me. I love the sound of the first one too- looks fun!ReplyDelete
Both books are fun reads. I'm very glad I read them. :)Delete
