What I'm reading Wednesday...

The Bees: A Novel by Laline Paull

The Bees is described as "The Handmaid's Tale meets The Hunger Games."  It takes place inside a beehive, and follows the colony through dangers from outside enemies and elements, and from inside changes.  This fulfills the 'book from a nonhuman perspective' category of the 2017 reading challenge.

I'm finding it much more enjoyable than expected!  I might even say it's a triumph of anthropomorphism.  :)  

I borrowed the ebook from my library, so the demise of my Kindle put a crimp in my reading pleasure, but I'm thankful that I can use my Kindle Fire as a backup.  I should finish it tonight or tomorrow.


  1. Hmmmm... Or should that be bzzzzzz... Sounds interesting...

    1. Definitely not one I would have picked if not for the challenge prompts. Really liked it though.
