I needed a break after "The Starless Sea" and though this was a good choice, it was terribly long. I don't see the point of the length, because it didn't really build up the suspense; it just dragged the story. One of those books whose ending makes up for whatever weaknesses in the story. Though it took the happy ending road, there was still a lot of introspection there.

ljuliel Not to be nosy, but were your parents of the late 70s, early 80s ? That‘s when the song first came out. 2mo
MySharonaK @ljuliel I was born late 80s but I guess the song was still on their mind 😂 2mo
ljuliel They may have been young teens when the song came out . I‘ve never heard anyone else with that name ! At least it‘s original ! 2mo

Highly entertaining, good read. Took me back to the 80s, god I love nostalgia. Quite gripping, a bit of a page turner.

This was a bit of a struggle to me, the pacing was a bit off, and the overall experience of this book kind of took away the awe at the revelation part.
I felt totally drained; and by the part that should have mattered I just didn't care anymore and just wanted everything to end already.

#Booked2019 #SocialMediaFocus ⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this on audio.... the first 3/4ths very good.
But, I found the last quarter very disappointing 🙁.... still it‘s a pick for the most part. Just wasn‘t feeling the ending at all 🤷🏻‍♀️. probably somewhere between a pick & a so-so , as it started off well

That‘s one ✅for Spring #Booked2019

Cinfhen Thanks for your review!! I think I‘m going to keep looking for a different choice. I think this one that was suggested by @saresmoore @batsy 12mo
batsy Sounds interesting...too bad the ending was a bit of a bummer. 12mo

Perks of working at a bookstore (except for the whole retail/nasty customer aspect): I recently received an advanced reader copy of the book Baby Teeth in the mail. Fast-forward to last week when I finished the book and decided to email the person in charge of it. She emailed me right back, we conversed a few times, and BOOM she says she's sending me a care package. Yesterday, I received all of these!! I am ONE. HAPPY. GIRL ❤❤❤

keys_on_fire Awesome!! 1y
LibLib That‘s awesome but can we back up? Who is being a nasty customer in a book store? That is the happiest place on earth, what is there to be grumpy about!?!? 🤨 1y
AmyG Nice! 1y
krissylovesbooks75 @LibLib the amount of nasty customers would probably surprise you. It's usually people who aren't regulars or are just stopping in to waste time. That being said, at the store I work in, we have some awesome regulars and customers that make the job fun...those are the ones that keep me going. Besides my amazing co-workers of course! 1y
LibLib @krissylovesbooks75 I guess there are just grumpy people everywhere, sorry about that! Glad you have other great customers and fantabulous co-workers! That really does make the difference. 1y

Breaking in my new #KindleOasis with Friend Request to hop off the memoir train I've been on. I've heard good and bad things about this book. I'm almost to the halfway point and it's slow at times but still keeping my attention. I imagine something big will come to a head eventually. Have you read it? Thoughts? #SummerReads #Bookworm #Bibliophile #Thrillers

What a brilliant book if you like a psychological thriller this is one for the reading shelf. Out of the blue Louise receives a friends request from a girl that went missing in her final school year. what does the request mean. All the events of 1989 come back to haunt Louise can she face the person that she was then. How has what happened in 1989 affected Life. This book explores the power of peer pressure and gives lots of food for thought

The premise of this was like a film I've seen of the same name but set in England. The book was OK, there were parts that were quite good and made you want to keep reading,then there were others that seemed quite pointless. There were no characters that you could really empahathise with or particularly like- I found them to be whiney and insipid or abrasive and inconsistent. The end was disappointing, there could've been so much more done with it.

Are you only as good as the worst thing you've done? Louise, a divorced mother of one, receives a FB friend request from a girl who was killed 25 years before, or was she? Friend Request is a mystery-thriller that focuses on bullying among teenaged girls. The narrative alternates between the POV of teen and adult Louise, which showst what kind of people become bullies, and how that can either define them, or make them into a better adult

Mrsjarv So this wasn‘t very exciting and I just found it slow and a bit dull. It was meant to be a thriller but took 200 pages to get going and then the plot was just a little too cheesy and nothing particularly thrilling about it. (edited) 2y

This book seemed to have a lot more hype around it than it deserved. While the book is well written, the story was very drawn out and didn‘t seem to go anywhere. The storyline bored me, yet I kept turning the pages. I was actually relieved to finish the book just to move onto something else.
Overall, 3⭐️ for me.

This god-awful book was chosen by my book club (at a meeting that I missed!), and put me into a serious reading slump. The premise is so ridiculous and I literally rolled my eyes so many times while reading it. It did make for a fun book discussion though, because so many of us HATED it.

I hope that thousands of years from now when aliens land on our planet and are trying to learn about human beings, they do NOT find this book and judge us by it.
