I can‘t say much about this book since I am sending it off for the new round of #LMPBC but I hope my group enjoys it a little more than I did. It wasn‘t bad it was just...there. I did like this quote though. #groupm #round007

Shakespearience @LibrarianRyan Decided to also use this for #BBRC #GrowUp “Unpopular Opinion” entry cause it had high reviews and several people said they enjoyed it...I was not one of them. 1w

OMG this book was so intense and also really good. I enjoyed it so much more than the other Joe Hill book I read (Horns). The characters were great, though the story felt a little long at times.

1st - Mark me down for 11 more points #TeamStoker #Scarathlon
2nd - This is my entry for “about a vampire” & “number in title” #ScaryScavengerHunt
3rd - Freezer Book for #BBRC #GrowUp cause this book is a terror!

Dracula | Bram Stoker
post image
Pickpick

Even though I‘m #teamslaughter, I had my heart set on reading Dracula this October so I just listened to it this weekend during our epic road trip. Not terribly scary, but a more layered and developed story than I had anticipated! Really quite a good read and Simon Vance is always an amazing narrator. 5pts (I think) #scarathlon #bbrc #growup #freezerbook #readmyowndamnbooks

What to say about Evvie Drake? I kept thinking while reading this how human Evvie is - she‘s flawed and complicated, and there were times I could totally relate to her. The middle of this book is the slowest part. I liked this one. My #Newin2019 for #Booked2019 and my #Newin20192020 for #GrowUp #BBRC .

I finished the #buddyread for #teamslaughter! Didn‘t love the narrator on the audio, had some issues with language used (especially regarding the child with special needs) and the overall female characters but I did enjoy the surprise reveals and twists to the story. Carrying the “triptych” theme with a three act story was clever too. 11pts - black cover. #scarathlon #bbrc #growup #neverendingseries

kamoorephoto I‘m having trouble with the writing style, I guess??! The character? 1mo
Sarahreadstoomuch @kamoorephoto yes, I know what you mean. Is it dated writing? Are the characters harder to like on purpose? Even Will, who I think you are supposed to be sympathetic but he still has conflicting character traits. Maybe not supposed to root for anyone? Well, John... but that‘s almost secondary. 1mo
kamoorephoto @Sarahreadstoomuch That might be what it is: conflicting character traits, not being able to like the people, and also feeling wholly uncomfortable with some of these situations and settings too. I can imagine Decatur and Atlanta and it‘s feeling too triggering. I can also I usually don‘t have too much of an issue with that putting me off reading but right now it is 😟 1mo

Wow. Wow. Wow! What a beautiful book. Lovely writing. Characters you care about. Unable to put down. Haven‘t gotten through a book that quick in a long time. So good. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is my #BBRC #GrowUp New in 2019/2020 selection and a replacement book for my original #20booksby2020 (my mood and library holds took me elsewhere).

Book 271 10/3/19

Under Currents | Nora Roberts
post image
Pickpick

I‘ve not read one of Roberts‘ stand alone novels for some time, but was so glad I picked up this one. I was hooked from the beginning with the horrors Zane and Britt face as kids. Flash forward years later to find under currents in their community. Darby, who recently has moved to the community, is also escaping a past. There was a tiny section that dragged for me, but other than that, it was a good Roberts novel and a good romantic suspense.⬇️⬇️

StayCurious Use this for BBRC - Grown Up New York Times bestseller I think is one of the categories 🙂 2mo
Librarybelle Oh - thanks @StayCurious ! I‘ll look at the hashtag and mark it here and on the form. 😁 2mo
Librarybelle This also works for #BBRC #GrowUp #NYTBestSeller . Thanks @StayCurious - I‘m glad we‘re #BBRC buddies! @LibrarianRyan 2mo

Owlizabeth Okay, my one quibble? As soon as I heard “Mr. Bingley” I knew the stalker was her ex. After the pointed Mr. Willoughby conversation, I couldn‘t believe they didn‘t figure it out sooner!! *end rant* 2mo
Librarybelle @Owlizabeth I know!! It‘s was an eye rolling moment for me! 2mo
LibrarianRyan Yeahhh 2mo
Lizpixie This was my first Nora Roberts. I‘ve always skipped over her thinking she was a romance writer but I won this book in an instagram giveaway and really enjoyed it. I now have two more of hers on audio & three on reserve at the library!👍 2mo
Librarybelle @Lizpixie Hope you enjoy the others! Her stand alone books I‘ve read I‘ve enjoyed for the most part. The exception is High Noon - I just couldn‘t get into that one, for some reason. 2mo

Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders

This was a really weird yet engrossing book. Part is historical accounts of Lincoln and the other is a historical fiction ghost story.
I don't think this could be more #genrebusting
