Where the Dead Go | Sarah Bailey

My latest read has a #gonegirl theme, with the disappearance of a 15 year old girl and the murder of her boyfriend. Halfway through, I‘m liking it and have no clue who‘s done what or why🕵️‍♀️ #movember

Cinfhen Hmmmmm, sounds REALLY good!!! Is it YA?? I really liked Gone Girl but I find most books didn‘t really hold up to that comparison so I‘m intrigued by this one. 1mo
JennyM @Cinfhen not YA, but no way near as good as Gone Girl, although I am enjoying it. Very police procedural and it‘s also book 3 in a series, and I think you kinda need to read the others to get the main detective character 1mo
Cinfhen That‘s good to know!! I‘ll pass ~ thanks 😊 1mo

JennyM @Cinfhen and I see I‘ve missed half the prompt off #girlsgonewild and got it completely wrong 🤪 It‘s a Monday 🙄 (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen It works for me 🙌🏻🎉😊 1mo
Centique PS the fabric you‘re wearing looks gorgeous - makes a lovely photo! 1mo
JennyM @Centique thanks my lovely. It‘s my favourite long skirt - I just about live in it all summer 💐 1mo
Centique @JennyM it‘s gone from winter to summer in about 3 days here so I‘m currently trying to find enough summer clothes - and I‘m definitely envious of your skirt! 😍 Are you in Aus? 1mo
JennyM @Centique it‘s always so sudden the change in seasons. Although I‘m in Brissie so it does tend to just be varying degrees of hot 🥵 1mo

Which book has disappointed you?

For me, #GoneGirl received rave reviews and I found myself bored. I hated the characters - I felt there was so much malice but a lack of depth making them unrelatable (Thank GAWD).

#You , however, is so captivating. I find myself wanting to know more about Beck (as I'm thinking #getsomecurtains girlfriend) and getting enveloped in Joe's twisted little mind. Can't wait to loose sleep over this read. #teamnosleep

RadicalReader @ReadingOverSleeping your username literally perfectly describes any and all wonderful beloved bookworms especially when they‘re in bed and reading before going to sleep to find out that one more chapter quickly turned into one more book 9mo

AlaSkaat This has bored me. The only part I found good was her on the train watching people and imagining things bcs that is what I do, haha. But the story overall was so disappointing 9mo

allureofbeauty I adored You. 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping Thank you everyone! ❤️ 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping @RaimeyGallant super helpful! Thank you! 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping @OleAnder Girl on the Train was so predictable! Glad I wasn't the only one! 9mo
PurpleyPumpkin Welcome to Litsy! It‘s a great community and I hope you enjoy it here. I completely agree with you about Gone Girl. Sounds like we have similar reading tastes!🙌🏽 9mo
rretzler Welcome to Litsy and thanks for the follow. I can‘t think of any specific books that have disappointed me because I tend to read only those books I‘m pretty sure I‘ll like, but I do read the series of several authors who are nearing or over 80 and sometimes find their most recent works not to be as good as they had been in their prime 9mo
AlaSkaat @ReadingOverSleeping It really was. She could have done the plot better and the book would have been so good 9mo

Rissreads Welcome to Litsy. I love 💚 your Litsy username! Eat, pray, love really disappointed me and I also didn‘t love Gone girl or The Girl on the train. 9mo
tammysue Welcome! 👋🏻 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping Thank you everyone! So happy I found Litsy. I FEEL SO WELCOME ♥️ 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping @SW-T I couldn't decide who I hated more 😂 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping @rretzler That's great you haven't had a bad read! How do you funnel them out? I have an issue that I have to finish a book after starting it even if it's terrible ... I've wasted several nights lol! 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping @PurpleyPumpkin Are you reading anything you recommend? 😁 9mo
rretzler Oh, I didn‘t say I hadn‘t had a bad read - I couldn‘t think of any books that particularly disappointed me - ones that I was expecting to like and didn‘t. I don‘t like anything I‘ve read by James Joyce, but I didn‘t expect to and I won‘t read any more by him. I also tend to finish books that I start, rarely do I not finish a book. (con‘t.) 9mo
rretzler I‘m reading a bunch of ongoing series that I enjoy and I guess over 50 years of reading I‘ve figured out specifically what I like. If it‘s an author I‘ve never heard of before, I will look at descriptions, reviews and then maybe try a sample first. I guess perhaps we are using the word disappointed differently. I think of it as I book I thought I would like and didn‘t. Sometimes I do read books that I think I may not like but still need to read. 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping @rretzler I love that: "Sometimes I do read books that I think I may not like but still need to read." I have to start doing this. I want to be more well rounded as a reader and learn about different people and places but I have a hard time putting down my thrillers. So glad you've found series you enjoy! 9mo
ReadingOverSleeping @RadicalReader I loved that! Turning one more chapter into one more book ♥️ 9mo
RadicalReader @ReadingOverSleeping happens to me every time so easy and so much fun 9mo
Kaylamburson Welcome to Litsy!!! I hope you love it here. I feel like there were a lot of books I was disappointed by when I listened to all the buzz. Hmmm there was A Gentleman in Moscow (but I knew it wasn't my type of read and forced myself to finish it anyway), Vox, From Twinkle With Love, and Hey Ladies! were some of my recent disappointments. 9mo

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

That‘s a bold statement from the author✒️ I love authors who pushes the limits on right or wrong, on morals and ethics, etc. I found this was a dark perspective on family. What did you think ? “But it‘s the only way to truly keep your child” #gillianflynn #boldauthor #boldstatement #gonegirl #sharpobjects

It is good. To say that Amy was a psycho would be an understatement. I actually wished that Amy would be punished for how easily she lied , she killed, no regret she had for it. And that line - He is learning to love me unconditionally, under all my conditions.

DNF @17%.
Couldn‘t get into the book. The book is well written, but the story didn‘t pull me in and was leaving me bored. Also, I was not connecting with the characters.

TommieMarie74 It was the same for me. 2y
hanseatic @TommieMarie74 I am so happy to hear that I am not alone with this opinion, the majority seems to have liked it. 2y
TommieMarie74 @hanseatic I know, and I just don‘t get it. I felt like the story was really bland and everyone was just so unlikeable and underdeveloped. I‘m glad I‘m no longer alone. 😊 2y

On our way to take some pictures in the 22nd district, it's a long ride, good that we have something to read with us.
