How to Live Well Without Owning a Car
How to Live Well Without Owning a Car: Save Money, Breathe Easier, and Get More Mileage Out of Life - Chris Balish

While this didn't provide a whole lot of new information, it snapped several things into focus...how much I spend on gas...how much I hate driving...how much I enjoy it when I go long periods without driving...and how unnecessary a car really is to my life. Combined with the fact that I'm already looking at where to move to be closer to work, I think I can transition out of my car lifestyle and into a car free one in the next few weeks.

I Promise Not to Suffer
I Promise Not To Suffer: A Fool for Love Hikes the Pacific Crest Trail - Gail D. Storey

Far and away the best of the thru hiking memoirs I've been reading recently (and only one of two that I actually finished). Storey manages to capture the hardship and beauty of the trail and weave it in with her marriage in a way that is realistic and lovely. The ending is surprising, but very satisfying. 

 

And I'm quitting while I'm ahead and won't be reading any more hiking memoirs.

I Promise Not To Suffer: A Fool for Love Hikes the Pacific Crest Trail - Gail D. Storey

The best hiking memoir so far...but I'm starting to wonder why I'm almost done with the book and they've only gone 400ish miles.

Hunting Ground
Hunting Ground - Patricia Briggs

I enjoyed this more than Cry Wolf, but I forgive that because Cry Wolf was necessary to set us up for Hunting Ground. 

 

Easily the best part of this is the relationship between Anna and Charles. Briggs writes such lovely chemistry and tension and you really get the feeling that they're in it for the long haul together, and I love that. 

 

The mystery/villain was a surprise to me, but I'm always surprised by who the actual villain is even in things like Castle and low key British mysteries. And being in the grip of the book right up until the last page is the BEST. 

 

Fair Game, here I come!

Frost Burned
Frost Burned - Patricia Briggs

Patricia Briggs knows how to rip my heart out. I was on the verge of tears for most of the first half of the book. It was so intense, so raw. I loved it.

 

And then the next quarter of the book was kinda disappointing. Adam and the pack are rescued with half the book left to go? Huh? I'm glad I stuck with it, because the end was awesome, and we had to understand all this stuff to get there, but the flow just felt off.

 

The Adam POV was awesome! It worked and was different, and was the perfect method to convey all the things that needed to be said.

 

And then the end was so lovely. Adam and Mercy are my OTP forever and ever. Up next, Night Broken! As soon as it comes out.
