Mehso-so

Well, that's done. Mostly, we see how accessible we are via social media, everyone has secrets... oh and lots of sex. So uncomfortable... I don't get the whole #TeamJoe thing. Those people have a lot of issues to work out!!! This was kind of like American Psycho Lite.
Finished out my prompts for:

@Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job on making it through, despite the discomfort. 👊🏻📚♥️ 7mo
Cinfhen I thought this book was really disturbing BUT I couldn‘t put it down!!!!! I loved it although I couldn‘t get through the Netflix series 7mo

Tanisha_A I watched the series, and yes I hate that man! 7mo
Soubhiville Yep, I‘m with you and @Cinfhen ! 7mo
Cinfhen Did u watch the series @Soubhiville ?? Joe was too likable and Beck was kind of annoying me 😬so I thought I should just let it be and live with the book. Also did you read 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m really debating ... this one is on my shelf and I wonder what I‘ll think. Maybe after Mr. B comes back from his upcoming trip. Wouldn‘t want to read it alone in my house! Right? @cinfhen @soubhiville (edited) 7mo
Soubhiville @Cinfhen I tried! I think I watched 3-4 episodes before I was too creeped out to continue. And I didn‘t feel it gave quite the same impression of Joe as the book. I haven‘t read any of her other books yet. Worth it? 7mo
Soubhiville @BarbaraTheBibliophage I would not read this when home alone! 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Soubhiville 👊🏻😱 Thanks! 7mo
Cinfhen Hidden Bodies was not as good as YOU but I‘m happy I read it. I hated her newest book @Soubhiville 7mo
Cinfhen I was gonna say go for it @BarbaraTheBibliophage because you‘re my #RebelReader 😎♥️ 7mo
Soubhiville Lol @Cinfhen and @BarbaraTheBibliophage , I may be wimpier than you! If I‘d read You while home alone, I would have been incredibly paranoid that someone was following me or especially trying to watch me through my windows! 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Soubhiville @Cinfhen I dunno. This one might make me #lessofarebel. And it‘s no hardship to wait a week. 🤪 7mo
IamIamIam If you guys have anyone in mind I can pass this on to, I'm happy to snail mail it out!!! @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen @Soubhiville And I really didn't like Providence at all. It had a lot of potential and a good build up but it fizzled out quick. It was creepy but low level creepy for me. I'm more comfortable with dismemberment than dirty sex talk so I was just squirmy a lot of the time! 😂 7mo
Cinfhen You‘ll always be my #rebelreader @BarbaraTheBibliophage 🙌🏻 I‘m so glad I‘m not the only one who thought Providence was a train wreck @IamIamIam @Chrissyreadit was looking for a #socialmediafocus book... maybe she‘ll want to read your copy!?? 7mo
IamIamIam @Cinfhen Oh great!! I have a box of books to send her already so this will be my push to actually getb to the post office!! LOL, @Chrissyreadit I'll stop in on Monday and send that off. I made the kids go through their shelves last week too! 💓 7mo
Chrissyreadit @IamIamIam @Cinfhen I do not think I would like You. I think it would also stress me out a ton. Thanks for your books for my #freelibrary I can‘t tell you how much these books are supporting a community. 7mo
Cinfhen Awww, I love that @IamIamIam has gifted books to your #LittleFreeLibrary @Chrissyreadit 🧡🧡🧡 7mo
IamIamIam @Chrissyreadit No worries! I'll post the book & see if anyone bites. I'm sure it's going to be tough to pass on around here... 🤣 I love passing on our books!! We donate through the school but they get redistributed through different communities. Keeping up with Chrissy, I can see the impact we're making. 💓💓 7mo

#MarchIntoThe70s #Day15 #JealousGuy I think being a creepy stalker qualifies you as a Jealous Guy. Joe is working in a bookstore when writer Guinevere Beck comes in. She‘s gorgeous, smart & Joe is instantly obsessed. He starts tracking her online & in real life, finding out everything he can and begins manipulating her life to include him and taking out any obstacles.Including murdering people in his way.Creepy.Just creepy.And definitely jealous.

Cinfhen And so addicting!!!! Great choice 💚#TeamJoe 😛 9mo
gradcat I agree with @Cinfhen ... I almost chose that book!! 9mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen @gradcat thank you! So many people are #teamjoe but personally he creeps me out!😳 9mo

MicheleinPhilly @Lizpixie THIS. It sort of frightens me how many “love letter to Joe” type things I‘ve seen on the Internet surrounding the tv series. 9mo
Lizpixie @MicheleinPhilly I think my reaction is because I was stalked by an ex boyfriend when I was 17. He even used to get his mates to watch me at work(Kmart). It was terrifying. So I don‘t find any obsessed suitor “cute”🙅🏻‍♀️ 9mo
MicheleinPhilly 😞That‘s horrible. 9mo
gradcat @Lizpixie So sorry to hear your story—it‘s frightening! I, too, think Joe is extra creepy. To put it in terms used when I was but a young lass, he grosses me out! 🤢 9mo
britt_brooke @Lizpixie @MicheleinPhilly I really hated this book and refuse to watch the tv series. Joe is disgusting. 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @britt_brooke @Lizpixie I enjoyed the book as a thriller and only watched the first couple of episodes of the series which I thought was campy trash. I just can‘t wrap my head around the whole “Isn‘t Joe so dreamy?” phenomenon. No, no he‘s not. I know he‘s a fictional character but I find the adulation disturbing. 9mo

Omg im only on episode 3 but this is soooo good! I normally dont watch shows based on books, but the people at work wouldnt leave me alone about it so i gave in! Im so glad i did! If you like books and the show Dexter, then this one is for you!

Scurvygirl I‘ve been putting off watching this. I adore Joe... #teamjoe #psychopathsunite 11mo
bookish_wookish I definitely want to read the book now that im watching this! @Scurvygirl 11mo

DAY 6: 🤬 this #jealousguy. I hated him from the start.

#nofemmeber

📷: Lifetime

Soubhiville He‘s the creepiest of all creeps! 13mo
Cinfhen Great choice!! But I‘ll be damned if I wasn‘t still rooting for him #twisted (edited) 13mo
AsYouWish @Cinfhen I was rooting for him too! I mean I felt like he had a few redeeming qualities, but they got overshadowed by his other qualities!!😂 13mo

saresmoore I don‘t want to watch this movie because it may ruin my undying love for Dan Humphrey. 13mo
Burghbookaddict Me too! I don't understand how anyone likes him! I didn't like Beck either, though. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 13mo
britt_brooke @saresmoore 😆 I haven‘t watched the series because I hated the book, but I love your reasoning. 13mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen @AsYouWish I really hated this book, so there were no redeeming qualities for me. 😆 Not even his love for books. 13mo
britt_brooke @Soubhiville Such a creep!! 🙅🏼‍♀️ 13mo
britt_brooke @BurghBookAddict I think part of the reason some people like Joe is because Beck is so detestable, too. I hated them both ... and the book. 13mo
Cinfhen I agree Beck was super annoying but she didn‘t deserve that kind of “attention”🙄 @AsYouWish @BurghBookAddict @britt_brooke There was just something about Joe...it was my obsession with the “bad” boys all over again 😉 13mo
saresmoore Oh, I‘ve no doubt the book was awful. So was the TV series! But I can‘t be held accountable for my postpartum binge watching habits. 😬 13mo
britt_brooke @saresmoore Oops, I meant I hated the Caroline Kepnes book so I haven‘t watched the Lifetime series. I‘ve never read nor seen Gossip Girl. I had to google Dan Humphrey, haha! 13mo
AsYouWish @Cinfhen I also have an obsession for "bad" boys in literature and movies. I agree Beck was annoying, it was more so the way she didn't really know what she wanted and I felt she was messing with Joe's head a bit, then again he wouldn't have known that if he wasn't doing what he was doing! If you can't tell, this book messed with me a bit and I am loving the show because it doesn't follow the book exactly, so it keeps me guessing! 13mo
saresmoore Oh! Haha! I think it‘s safe to say you‘re not missing anything. 13mo
Burghbookaddict @AsYouWish I actually prefer the show over the book 😳 13mo
LoverofLit @Cinfhen I'm right there with you on #teamjoe 🔥 🔥😍😍 Though I'm a little embarassed and ashamed to admit it! In You I just found him funny but head over heels happened in 13mo
Bklover @Cinfhen I‘m with you on Joe! Found myself cheering him on. (And yes, he is a total creep). Loved this book- just started the series on tv. I guess I must have a dark side! 13mo
IheartYA I've watched only the first 3 or 4 episodes but I adore Penn Badgley and he's the only reason I watched. Not my usual thing. 13mo
WhatThePuck @LoverofLit #teamJoe also. I laughed out loud to some of his funnier one liners. I will still quote him to other people when they are annoying me. 😂😂 13mo
Cinfhen I haven‘t watched the series but I think I should @Bklover @LoverofLit @AsYouWish 13mo
Victoriahoperose I kinda dig this show. The book was definitely better, but there are some interesting things that they did in the show that differed and were pretty well done. I actually kinda like Joe as twisted as it is lol 13mo
britt_brooke @Victoriahoperose It‘s disturbing 😆, but it seems like more people like him than not. 13mo
Billypar Wow...I feel like I should develop some 'You' literacy just so I can get in in on the conversation, lol. I like Dan Humphrey- I could see him as a villain though. 13mo
britt_brooke @Billypar 😆 Joe is a total creeper!! 🙅🏼‍♀️ 13mo

One for the Money (Revised) | Janet Evanovich

Y'all. They're releasing a special edition 25TH ANNIVERSARY edition of One For the Money that you can preorder at B&N. What the what??? I didn't realize the series was THAT old! I know I started it as a freshman in HS but dang. I thought it was fairly new back then.

LaurenReads 25 years?!?! Can she just pick Ranger already 😂 1y
vkois88 @LaurenReads 😂😂😂😂😂 right? I feel like that's a pretty darn good amount of time to figure out who she should pick... 1y

The Weekend | Bernhard Schlink

Probably Nancy Drew as a kid & Sue Grafton as an adult

I‘d like to give up on Stephanie Plum but those books are like drugs. You know better, but you do it anyway.

I read mostly kindle library books, so there‘s not much of either going on there.

No, but I‘d like to!

Happy weekend! #weekendchat

tpixie I gave up on Stephanie Plum after 17. I know it was hard. I love the slapstick comedy and all the fun characters. But I did get tired. Of the repetition and never ending love triangle. I do miss her some days. 2y
Susanita She should just pick Ranger and move on already! 2y
Pamwurtzler @Susanita 😀 I‘m #teamjoe but totally agree that she should make some choice & get on with it! 2y
