#movember was an #amazing reading month for me.

7 audiobooks
1 ebook
11 physical books

If I push even harder next month maybe I‘ll actually make my GR goal. Only 23 books to go!

#BookReport #Week3
Glad I waited until end of the day because I finished a 5th book!!! Plainsong was a #OneSittingRead and 5 HEARTFELT stars
Speak No Evil - contemporary fiction/ very good I already posted reviews on other 3 books, LOVED both #NF (both audio)
Three bails this week, annoyed because I wasted 2/5 loans from Hoopla. Gods is probably great but not on audio. The Holdout is an #ARC #NetGalley 👎🏼 Just started Like Dreamers, #NF 👍🏻

Panic | Lauren Oliver
post image

It‘s been ages since I‘ve read one of Oliver‘s books- but this YA thriller is an entertaining and quick read that‘s been languishing on my #MtTBR for years! It‘s sort of a re-imagining of the Hunger Games, but set in a small town in NY- and with deadly dares rather than a high tech post-apocalyptic government setting the stakes. There are some predictable parts, but some real surprises too- probably between a so-so and a pick!

Megabooks This is my favorite of hers! 6mo
TorieStorieS @Megabooks I can see why! It was practically a #OneSittingRead for me!! 😊 6mo
k.reads.5 Nice! I read that Amazon is going to make this a show! I haven't read it but I loved her book Before I Fall. 6mo
TorieStorieS @pl.2886 Really??? That‘s really neat! I can definitely see why they picked this one! I‘ll have to check out Before I Fall! Thanks!! 😊 6mo

Wherever She Goes | K.L. Armstrong
post image

I‘ve been a big fan of Armstrong‘s writing for over a decade- across multiple genres. She writes fast-paced, twisting plots with realistic and dynamic characters! I had to make up for lost reading time over the weekend, so I started- and finished- this #NetGalley #OneSittingRead this afternoon! Set in a fictional #Chicago suburb, I couldn‘t put this one down!!! And I finished my #MayTBR a few days early- despite the weekend!! 👏👏👏

When We Were Lost | Kevin Wignall
post image

This YA thriller is a survival story post plane crash in the jungle- there are plenty of natural dangers, compounded with the drama that the group of survivors are all in high school! It‘s a #OneSittingRead from James Patterson‘s publishing imprint. It‘s lacking some supporting detail that would make this more realistic but doesn‘t want for page-turning excitement! #Bookwear

k.reads.5 Great review, this looks like a fun suspense read! 7mo
TorieStorieS @pl.2886 Thanks!! 😊 It‘s a fast and fun read! 7mo

I‘ve had this on my TBR for awhile and finally ran across a copy at #Bookbug in Kalamazoo. The Michigan connection is what sparked my interest, but this memoir knocked my socks off! So good! Molly‘s upbringing with a bank robber for a father, being a child of an incarcerated parent, the love of her mentally ill mother, sisters split between parents, and more. #MittenLitten #OneSittingRead A solid 4/5💔s

Wife @Stacy_31 Hi 👋🏻! I saw that you stacked this one and remember that you have Michigan connections. I‘d be happy to send you my copy. Is your address the same as @Trashcanman? Let me know if you‘re interested. #MittenLitten 7mo
Stacy_31 Hi! That's so sweet of you. I'd love it. ❤️❤️ And yes, my address is the same as his. 😊. Thank you! 7mo
Wife You‘re welcome 🌹 7mo

Three Days Missing | Kimberly Belle

Wowza!! A #onesittingread completely!! From the very first pages, this fast-paced thriller doesn‘t let go!! I stayed up WAY too late finishing this- and I don‘t regret it at all!! My first experience with the author but certainly not my last after this!!!

SilversReviews A good read. Enjoy!! 2y
TorieStorieS @SilversReviews I very certainly did enjoy this one- it‘s out for everyone on 6/26! 2y

Some really great points, but as most speech-made-books go, a little disjointed. Reading about the silencing on women in Greek and Roman literature was super interesting (and infuriating, of course.)

A long letter to the next female to run for the presidency; it is filled with lessons learned from Hillary Clinton‘s campaign. #OneSittingRead ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bookladylinda This sounds interesting! 2y
cariashley I just met her today and she was so wonderful!! I can‘t wait to read this. 2y
