You wouldnt think reading a book would be that big of a deal except for how with me it is. I can't actually remember the last time I read a book, at least not a graphic novel. It's been quite a while. My attention span tends to wander and I get too distracted and then I never finish it.

I've had a change of medication recently which although it seems to be having some issues with my sleep it's doing really good on helping me concentrate.

But yes. I read a book. An actua real life book.

Meg by Steve Alten.
On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean's deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he's sure he saw but still can't prove exists - Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. The average prehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosaurus rex in seconds. Taylor spends years theorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feeds at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to get him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub. Diving deeper than he ever has before, Taylor will face terror like he's never imagined. MEG is about to surface. When she does, nothing and no one is going to be safe, and Jonas must face his greatest fear once again.
4/5 stars

I was in the library with J last month and we got talking to one of the librarians who S knows and talking about cryptozoology and monsters and dinosaurs and she recommended the book to me thinking I might want to give it a go. It took me about a month to read it but I did really enjoy it.

It wasn't hard to read. It was cheesy and fun and a little bit scary. It made me laugh out loud and gasp out loud at times too and I was really rooting for the characters. IT was like reading the book version of one of those made-for-tv sci-fi/horror movies

Croeso!

I'm Lucy, a 30-something woman who is trying to figure out this whole 'life' thing.

I'm bisexual and poly, living in North Wales with my partners J&S. I'm a home maker, love to bake and cook, and am a huge sci-fi fan. I'm also a little obsessed with journals/planners right now.

I haved lived for so long under the shadow of a number of mental health diagnoses, letting them define me rather than just be part of me. For too long I've been "Lucy the Schizo" and I want to find out who 'Lucy' is
