⭐⭐ Okay story. ...She dedicated it to Jason Bourne...that was kinda my clue that this wasn't going to be a book I'd be crazy about. 😂
Between a pick and a so so. Read it for a book club and enjoyed it enough to finish in a weekend. Had a very hard time thinking of questions to ask at book club. I don‘t think there‘s much to discuss here. Lots of action, lots of guns, big summer block buster of a book. My sticky notes are things I want to discuss, but all very surface level. 🙄
Book and bomb pop soda from yesterday. I am loving this book so far. My first Meyer ever. 🧪🧬💉🦠🔬
Why the hate for Stephenie Meyer? I don't mind her. I just want to be completely engrossed in a story and be made to feel something. If you catch my attention and make me forget the world around me for a few minutes, I call that a win. I was super busy and it took me a month to find enough time to read this in full. It was a little slow at first, but somewhere near the middle of the book it picked up the pace. A coworker loaned it to me randomly.
Trying to keep up with reviews. All I have to say is that I respect this author a lot. As a result, I wanted to read something by her which was not the saga she is so well known for, but I was afraid to be disappointed. Thankfully, it's furthest from the truth. The main character is funny, relatable, and jump-of-the-page real. The supporting characters are just as strong. And despite all of the odds... that ending. 😭😍❤️📚🎉 #nospoilers #scifi
So far I am enjoying this one. I didn‘t really enjoy the twilight books by Meyer so I took a chance and gave this one a shot. It‘s kept my interest and has me turning page after page surprisingly, main character Alex thought process seems so robotic when she thinks of Daniel it‘s entertaining. The action in this adds to its appeal for me as well.
It feels so weird to be back from vacation already. Thankfully my coworkers helped me manage my caseload, so it is not as overwhelming as I feared. And there is always reading to help me cope. This is my current book, and so far it's definitely engaging and worthwhile. #currentlyreading
My eyes may be bigger than my speed of reading. Pro of working at the library access to a lot of books I don‘t own. Plus don‘t have to make room in my already too large collection of Books. And saves me money. Con of it is that I check out all the books I want to read but I still have so many waiting to be read at home. There are not enough Hours in the day!! the top two are sequels to books I‘ve read and I‘m excited to see what happens next!
Stephanie Meyer has improved a lot over the years, this book was engaging and I loved the whole story. I recommend the audiobook as well, I‘ve really enjoyed this story and was on the edge of my seat more than once! Some people have issues with the slower pace to get the story going, but once it‘s on the move it goes fast. Like I said the audiobook helps a lot to get through the slower parts.
I have never read the Twilight series and never will. Do not read vampire books. However I lived Stephenie's The Host. Finally got to this one. Lived it too. Love how her books make me think. This one about whether or not torture is ever acceptable.
The Chemist was no comparison to Twilight— not bad, not good, but just meh. I do think it should‘ve been shorter simply bc it easily ‘could-have-been‘ & without sacrificing anything or any meat. Also, it was a book club read (and I‘m the one that submitted this book for reading) and I was very disappointed that there were no pre-written book club discussion questions by Meyers or on her website :/
Picked this one up at CVS today for $5.99 and I‘m hooked so far. I‘m also loving my new water bottle. I‘m obsessed with Moroccan/Eastern-type tiles (I spend way too long looking at that part of any museum) and so this bottle is just ❤️❤️. Plus it‘s super functional.
It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb.
Hi Littens! Wishing you all a lovely day. It is already afternoon here and is so hot that I'm reading inside on my couch. Cold drink help me to survive😆

Have you read this book yet? I am doing the audio book so no looking ahead. It is a little difficult & rough at the moment. Was looking for a little relief & happy thought!!
I really enjoyed this read. An ex-agent is on the run from her former employer. They called her The Chemist and she uses her unique set of skills trying to outsmart, out run what they have in store for her. It was super fast paced with a little romance thrown in. This book has a ton of highly skilled K-9s throughout the book. I‘m always been intrigued by well trained dogs and what they can really do. It really added to the uniqueness of this book.
Wow. This was so much better than I expected. It‘s not a book I ever intended to read, but when your grandmother shoves a book at you because she loved it so much it‘s really hard to turn it down. It was action-packed and engaging and well paced, and the main character was awesome. Full review here: http://novelnotions.net/2018/07/18/the-chemist/
So I have decided that I like audio books! I have a 30 minute commute to work each day, so I started listening to the book instead of the radio. I knew my limits at home, and would read the book instead of listening to the audio. Worked out great for me. I'm sure some of you all have been doing this for a while- I'm just a little late to the show lol! But I did enjoy this book much better than the Host. It was a surprisingly good read!
It's been a long time since I picked up the book, and this one got me hooked. The plot is interesting, characters powerful and evolving in my eyes
I stopped by CVS earlier this week to pick up a birthday card for a coworker. Stuck in the back corner where no one could see was a rack full of hardcovers on sale for $5.99. I chose this one. 🎉🎊🛍
Alex, an ex-secret agent working for a covert branch of the U.S. government, has been on the run for three years. Suddenly, she is lured out of hiding when her ex-handler asks her to interrogate a suspect involved in a biological terror plot. She captures the suspect, and begins to break him down, when she finds out how deep the rabbit hole goes. PLEASE STEPH, STOP WITH THE SUPERHERO REFERENCES.
This is the first book Iv read that had so many fight scenes/spy stuff in it. I‘m not one for mysteries, or action, But I did enjoy the small bit of romance thrown in. I‘m a huge fan of Stephanie myer, but I was definitely missing the sci-fi/fantasy vibe she usually has. Well written, the romance was a little forced, as was the character of Kevin. But I fell in love with the characters and stayed up late to keep reading several nights. 7.5/10⭐️
My sweet bed hogs fell asleep a long time ago. Did anyone else set themselves up for an exhausting day tomorrow by reading till 1am?? 😂🤦🏻♀️
I love/hate that this reading bug has been awakened in me again. I blame Litsy. And my husbands gift of 18 books for Christmas.
Omgeeee I thought for a while that I would dislike this book. But I. AM. Hooked. So much suspense and unknown and these characters 🙌🏻 #latenightreading #bedhogs #stephaniemyer
Bookhaul from my beach bookstore trip! I have not been so excited about a haul for a while 😍😱🙌🏻 I am probably goin to start with the chemist, and then that book about friendship in India (east of the sun) looks like one I won‘t be able to resist for long so that‘s next! They all look SO good through. One of the Darcy books is headed off to a new home! Have you Read any of these? #bookhaul they were BOGO!
Day 25 (5 Days left!) Fav author- Stephanie myer. ❤️ I just found a copy of the chemist in a used bookstore at the beach! I was stoked. Can‘t wait to read it! #booksandshelfiesM18
I can't take one more book that has the main characters fall in love within two seconds of meeting each other!!!!! "I don't know you at all and you've been quite awful since I met you, but I'd die for you because you're hot."
Make the effort to have the characters grow into it!!!! Ugh. So annoyed I couldn't even be bothered to get an image for this review ?
So I put this book off for years. I just couldn‘t understand how you could jump from vampires to a thriller. But now I wish I had picked it up sooner! This audiobook took forever but I loved every bit of it! The main character was paranoid as heck but she was also a badass. And I think this is going to be a movie or TV show - which I will definitely be watching. 💉
