Because Sarah Michelle Gellar is gonna be in the adaptation
Holy shit. I just don‘t even know what to say! Still tryna figure out what the hell happened ! 😱
This book is full of things I fear! Being alone. Hospitals . Coma and being close to death. Not remembering things. And a lot more fears I have that would be spoilers if I list them. “I can‘t recall where this is or how I got here, but I know who I am.

1. I have quite a few but the ones I‘m actually tackling this weekend are the tagged , Harry Potter and the sorcerers stone, and a graphic novel about introverts (I am blanking on the name and it‘s in my car at the moment. )
2. I don‘t necessarily have a favorite here . Local and small ones
3. Up next on audio is Becoming by Michelle Obama. Next up from the library is Ask again yes and The girl they left behind
Starting this one today. It‘s been sitting in my TBR pile for a while but I recently saw that Sarah Michelle Gellar is staring in a limited series adaptation of this book! I am a major Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan and I will watch anything with her in it. And of course I have to read the book before I see the show 🤓
I came very close to DNF-ing this when it was beginning to appear that the author was using the “sometimes I lie” line to give herself a get-out-of-jail-free card on a story that didn‘t make sense. But then it started to pull together and things that seemed to be obvious lies turned out not to be. In the end, it‘s just a so-so because there was still a little but too heavy of a lean on the lie theme
I enjoyed this. Lots of twists
A decent twist wasn't enough for me on this one, I'm afraid. I feel like you never truly get to the root of the characters and their motivations, it all stays very surface level and contrived. You also really need to suspend disbelief to buy that the "diary" chapters were written by an 11-yr old ?
(? another day, another book, another brunch ?)
I enjoyed this chilling tale of sister. There was one part that was a big sick but the rest was fine. The book alternates between a childhood diary, the present where Amber Taylor is in a coma, and the events leading up to the accident. This book was so twisted that I think I understand the ending but I am not positive. Really good read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I‘m giving this a “pick.”
It was unsettling, with a fair amount of twists and turns. At the end I was left scratching my head, trying to figure out what I just read. 🤷♀️. I may have to refer to the written version (vs. audio) to get a better grip on things. This is for book club, which is fortunate, because I think a discussion is definitely in order for this one!
All 3 books were part of my June TBR and I haven‘t gotten to any of them yet! 😱 It‘s partially because I started two unplanned ARCs and partially because life thwarts reading plans, you know? I am hoping to get to them at some point #thissummer and I *might* be able to start one before the month ends. If I am able to, what one do you think I should I start? #songsofsummer @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620
Finally finished this one... can‘t say I‘d recommend it.
I was put off by the narrator - I didn‘t like not knowing what to believe and what was unreal. Basically Amber is in a coma, and we, the readers, hear her thoughts as she tries to piece her life back together in her mind.
We also experience visitors who may or may not actually be there.
I found it confusing and not as entertaining as I had hoped it would be. So just a “meh” rating.
I‘m about halfway through this one and it‘s enjoyable enough. I can‘t say I‘m a huge fan of unreliable narrators but I‘m still curious with what is going to happen...
In this book, the main character, Amber Reynolds, says there are three things you have to know about her.
What three things do you think everyone should know about YOU?
End of Day 1 of the #24B4Monday #Readathon and I‘m currently at 5 hours 27 minutes, not too bad given it was a work day and In was very tired last night. Off to a christening so won‘t get much reading in until this evening.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sometimes I Lie is a page turner. There is an unsettling feeling about our unreliable narrator that ebbs and flows throughout the story. Quick read & intriguing, I flew through it. This book was pretty graphic at times & disturbing (NOT as disturbing as I Know Who You Are. I‘m still asking myself what the heck?) I‘ll def be following Feeney‘s work! I know now to expect her stories to “go there” 😂 if that makes sense #sometimesilie 💫
Absolutely brilliant! It had me gripped from the start and I finished it in less than a day.
A fantastic psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns.
#booknerdchallenge for a book with a cover you hate... I don't hate the cover think that's about strong but I don't really like it.
