I can‘t believe how invested I was in the characters of this story! Some I loved with all my heart and some I wished 1000 deaths on 🤣🤣 just a fantastic coming into adulthood story, making mistakes, finding your path, earning your way ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Karisa @DanaManiac Me too! It was so hard to stop reading! 😂 6mo
Karisa I‘ve read them all except Broken Girls. SSJ is fast becoming one of my favorites 6mo
TheBookHippie @Karisa everytime we read one I think okay this is my favorite 😂😂😅. I think our first read together The Broken Girls -(four years ago 🤯)-is my favorite. 6mo
kspenmoll I have read them all- I think as buddy reads here. Correct me if I am wrong! I cannot chose a favorite!!! 6mo
Mollyanna So this is my first SSJ and I‘m loving it. Am definitely going to go through the backlist after I finish this one. 6mo
AmyG Thanks to you….me. She has become a favorite….for me, a comfort read. My favorite of hers? The lastone I read. 🤣 6mo
CoffeeNBooks The only one I've missed is The Other Side of Midnight, and I'm pretty sure I've read the others as buddy reads with you. Lost Among the Living and The Sun Down Motel are tied for my favorites, and all of the others are tied for my second favorite! 😆 6mo
Deblovestoread I‘ve read Lost and Midnight only. I have some catching up to do. (edited) 6mo
vlwelser I read the Broken Girls before I met all of you. Actually, The Sundown Motel was my first book with the group. 6mo
TheBookHippie @vlwelser ♥️♥️♥️ We lured you with Simone and kept you! 🤣♥️✊🏼 6mo
vlwelser Misty found out I was reading that and pulled me in. So glad it happened too. 6mo
BookwormAHN I've read all the others, mostly with y'all 😺 6mo
TheBookHippie @vlwelser ♥️♥️♥️ 6mo
TheBookHippie @BookwormAHN we‘ve had some wild discussions. 6mo
Read4life This is my first SSJ. It won‘t be my last. 6mo
DebinHawaii I‘ve read them all and all & except for The Broken Girls which I went back to read later, it‘s been with #SundayBuddyReads 🤗 I think The Sundown Motel was one of my first with the group but I‘m not sure. You definitely hooked me with St. James! 🖤 My favorites change all the time too! 6mo
Sargar114 @DebinHawaii I had the same reading pattern. I generally favor her modern ones with The Broken Girls being my favorite (Mary Hand might be the scariest ghost!!!) but so far I‘m really enjoying this one!!! 6mo
TheBookHippie @Sargar114 Mary Hand yes!!! So creepy! 6mo
mollyrotondo I‘ve read them all! My first was Lost Among the Living when it first came out. Then my second was Sundown Motel with SundayBuddyRead (my first book with the group!) and then all her others with this amazing group afterward! I read Broken Girls on my own since the group did that one before I joined. I love her so much!! 6mo
TheBookHippie @mollyrotondo I do love her so much!!! Such a huge talent! 6mo
Hooked_on_books I‘ve read 4, 3 of which were with you. I wasn‘t paying enough attention and missed the other buddy reads! 6mo
TheBookHippie @Hooked_on_books I miss stuff all the time!! I love your input when you're reading with us!! 6mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick The only one I haven't read with you all is The Broken Girls but I have it here if I need a SSJ fix after this one. 🤣 An Inquiry Into Love and Death has been my favorite, but they were all enjoyable. 6mo
Sparklemn This is my first! 5mo
TheBookHippie @Sparklemn WOWIE!! I hope you enjoy it!! 5mo

Driving to the cottage and trying to get chapters 1-6 read for Sunday #sundaybuddyreads

Hi, all. I'm looking for a way to get out of my reading slump. Too many distractions these days. I thought joining a buddy read would be fun. I know about #buddyread, #pemberlittens, #furrowedmiddlebrowclub, and #sundaybuddyreads. I plan to check these out. Any suggestions for others? I don't care for rom-coms, science fiction or short stories. Other than that, I'm pretty open.

Thank you!

CarolynM I must have missed this when you posted it, sorry. As well as #FurrowedMiddlebrowClub I‘m also in the #WhartonBuddyRead (reading Edith Wharton in chronological order - I think we‘ve done 5 or 6 so plenty more to go) and the #PersephoneClub group (reading books from the Persephone catalogue) You‘d be very welcome in any of those groups🙂 Hope you find something to get you out of the slump💕 (edited) 8mo
Sparklemn @carolynm I love Persephone books. I have about 20 of them and always happy to buy more in the catalogue. I'll check it out. Thank you!! 8mo
Sparklemn @tpixie I'll check this out. Thank you! 8mo
tpixie @Sparklemn most are short Children‘s novels, so not a big commitment! 8mo

The Broken Girls | Simone St James
post image

Every time we finished a Simone St. James book for #sundaybuddyreads this year I vowed to go back & read this one & I finally did it! I can see what all the🖤is about. Spooky, atmospheric & an interesting story & mystery with lots of twists. I‘m still torn between this & The Sun Down Motel as my favorite with Silence For the Dead right up there too. Heck, I‘ve enjoyed everything I‘ve read from this author & can‘t wait for her new book next year.

kspenmoll Me too to all that!!!💕 1y
Sargar114 Glad you loved it!!! Mary Hand is one of the scariest ghosts! (edited) 1y
DebinHawaii @Sargar114 She is quite scary! I even had to stop reading it last night when it was dark & windy outside.😱😉 1y

So. I finished the book (even before the first #SundayBuddyRead discussion). I thought I was behind then I started to listen to it and then... it just gripped me and I had to keep going. I will linger/lurk in the #SundayBuddyReads - but not participate too heavily because I don't want to spoil anything. #TBRread 10hrs



mollyrotondo 😂 I‘m glad you liked it so much! I am going to start this weekend and participate in the #sundaybuddyread. I hope I can stop after chapter 10. I really like her books. 2y
ElizaMarie @mollyrotondo I have never read any of her books before. But it was just a great combination of ghost story/mystery type of book that I just got so into it! I really enjoyed it .. 2y
mollyrotondo @ElizaMarie oh her books are very good and do a good job incorporating some sort of supernatural element. The tagged book was very good. 2y

ElizaMarie @mollyrotondo Thanks! I am going to stack that one so I can look into it. 2y
TheBookHippie We‘re doing three of her books this year!!! We have done two before this 2y
ElizaMarie @TheBookHippie I am looking forward to them! Also I have the others on the TBR for now 2y
