So many books. He has super #goals.
Anyway, three of these books are part of a series of the Underwater Investigation Unit in … FLORIDA. Sloan (the main character) talks all about ALLIGATORS
. She dives. Underwater. With alligators swimming around.
Maybe she’s got some really big stones. Or she’s insane. Or maybe both. Did I mention the alligators?
But, I thought since she has really big stones, I’d feature her because yesterday #InternationalWomensDay
is about an investigation in the intentional sinking of a cruise ship Sea of Dreams
.* This book is a like a living nightmare, folks. And we’re not even talking about the alligators anymore.
I’m talking about sinking cruise ships.
For their honeymoon, my husband and his ex-wife went on a cruise. When my husband proposed to me, he thought it might be fun to go on another cruise. This time, thankfully not with his ex-wife.
Our conversation went something such as this:
ME: I’m not getting on a cruise ship.
HIM: Why not? You love boats.**
ME: Haven’t you ever seen Titanic?
HIM: I think they’ve made ships safer since 1912.
ME: If the cruise ship sinks, I’m so letting go of your hand.
HIM: mumbles something under his breath about me being insane
ME: But it doesn’t matter, because I’m still not getting on a cruise ship.
FYI: The Estonia
sank in 1994, killing like 800 people. The Costa Concordia
ran into the shore in 2012, killing 32 people. And that’s not even including the Diamond Princess
stranded at sea for 5 days because of COVID.
This is proof that I’m not insane.
At least about sinking cruise ships.
* So far, I like this book.
