Gooodreads Monday [September 23]

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid’s Tale

In this final volume of the internationally celebrated MaddAddam trilogy, the Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of the population. Toby is part of a small band of survivors, along with the Children of Crake: the gentle, bioengineered quasi-human species who will inherit this new earth.

As Toby explains their origins to the curious Crakers, her tales cohere into a luminous oral history that sets down humanity’s past—and points toward its future. Blending action, humor, romance, and an imagination at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is vintage Atwood—a moving and dramatic conclusion to her epic work of speculative fiction.

Oh, my goodness. So this has been on my TBR for ages. Oops. I’ve been into this trilogy since I read Oryx and Crake in high school. I’ve been a fan of Atwood since high school, and I bought this book like eight years ago to read it. I don’t know why I keep putting it off when I know I’m going to like it. However, it’s been so long I feel like I should reread the other two books so I’m fully cognizant of the events in prior books so I’m not confused as hell. So I need to get to this one eventually, but I have so many other books too. I really have no idea why I keep adding books to my Goodreads Tbr. If anyone has read this, I’d love to hear what you think. Atwood is such a good author, I love talking about her books.

Until I rant about books again,
