Happy 1st day of #the100dayproject I am so excited to get to work on my #pantonechallenge during the next 100 days! I’ve played a bit with these cards already and it’s so so much fun! If you’re doing a 100 day project too, please share so I can come see yours!

Review: The Dragon Behind the Glass: A True Story of Power, Obsession, and the World’s Most Coveted Fish

The Dragon Behind the Glass: A True Story of Power, Obsession, and the World's Most Coveted Fish
The Dragon Behind the Glass: A True Story of Power, Obsession, and the World’s Most Coveted Fish by Emily Voigt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was having dinner with my workmates a week ago and as I always do, I asked folks to tell me their favorite books. I love reading other people’s favorite books. This time, there was mostly silence except for my colleague, Jeff, who told me to read this book. Narrative non-fiction is a genre I love so I was excited to read it, and then when he said his wife wrote it, I decided I had to read it.

I am so glad I did!

Before this book, the only time I had heard of Arowana was because of Animal Crossing. A fish worth a lot of bells. As it turns out, it’s worth a lot in the real world, too! In this journey that takes the author to unexpected destinations and heights of adventure, Emily Voigt explores the bizarre realm of ornamental fish hobbyists and those who journey far and wide to discover new fish species.

If you didn’t think the world of fish could be that interesting, think again. This book will have you turning the pages and shaking your head in wonder and amazement at what people will do and how far they will go. I loved every moment of following the crazy journey from the safety of my home!

Review: The Teacher

The Teacher
The Teacher by Freida McFadden
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Nope I am sorry I am going to have to stop reading McFadden. Yes her books are a fast read and yes you’re always wanting to know what happens next. But her characters are vile. The material is always triggering. And I am just done reading these.
