4/5 stars! Highly recommend. I didn‘t know a lot about Ali Wong besides seeing her in Always be my Maybe, which I loved. I watched her two Netflix specials in preparation for this book, Baby Cobra and Hard Knock Wife. I laughed a lot. Some parts of sort of raunchy, but I still really enjoyed it. Even the parts that weren‘t funny were interesting. I even really liked the afterword written by her husband. Audiobook was good too! #jpbookreview

Starting my 5th book of 2020. I‘m about 1/4 of the way into this one, and I‘m already jumpy. This atmospheric thriller is perfectly creepy so far! Have you read this one? What did you think?

2020 books read:
Becoming. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
You are Not Alone ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Family Upstairs ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The First Mistake ⭐️⭐️⭐️

UnabridgedPod I really liked this one! I listened (via Scribd) and though the audio was excellent. 2w
JacqMac It‘s in my library stack. I‘m looking forward to it. 2w
Mccall0113 Meh. Lack luster 2w
MyNamesParadise I listened to the audio and I found it to be really long and drawn out. It wasn‘t suspenseful to me. 1w
Jess7 Update: overall — this book was just ok. It felt pretty drawn out, but that said, I liked the ending. 3 or 3.5 stars. 6d

Currently reading and listening. Anyone else switch back and forth between audio and ebook? This one is ok so far.. I didn‘t like how part 2 felt extremely long, boring, and disconnected from part 1. Part 3 at least connects the two previous parts, but the main character, Alice, annoys me. Has anyone read this? Did you like it? Does it get better? (I‘m at about the 75 percent mark)

Tianarose I switch between audio and physical books. I dont like e-books 2w
Marni I switch between too. And physical books. All depends what I can get my hands on! 2w
trueisa4letterword I switch between ebooks and physical books usually. Lately, I find myself trying ebooks on Libby before checking out the hardcover from the library. 2w
Mrs_B I seem to always have one of each on the go too, glad it‘s not just me. Audiobook for chores and commuting, ebook for sofa reading time! 2w

4/5 - this was a confusing read for about the first half of the book. There were a lot of characters to follow, but it all came together around the 75 percent mark. Lots of little twists and turns all the way to the final line. Definitely recommend!

2.5 stars - I wanted to like this one, I really tried, but in the end I just didn‘t. The plot was unbelievable and the main character‘s actions were even more so. Half way through the book I just wanted it to end and when it did I didn‘t feel any more satisfied. Thanks to GetRedPr #partner and the publisher for gifting me this free copy. Unfortunately this just wasn‘t my cup of tea. Full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3058155984

Bette Oh my gosh I totally agree. I wanted to like it but it just didn't deliver, it was so preposterous. This is the kind of book that makes me sad cuz I could have been reading something good. 😟 1mo
ReadingisMyPassion I didn't care for it either. 1mo

LITTLE SECRETS - 5/5 STARS!!! - I devoured this book in only two short sittings! It‘s super suspenseful and well written. It kept me hanging on to the last page. It begins with a child abduction and spins into a web of lies and so much more. If you enjoyed one of her other books that I loved, Jar or Hearts, this is the book for you! Though I will say this one is slightly less dark than Jar of Hearts, but still ohhhh soo good! Pub date: April 2020!

Hi book friends! Sorry I‘ve been a bit MIA for months—yes, I know, MONTHS! It‘s been a busy year. We bought and moved into our first house. My husband was finishing up his masters and we had a BABY BOY! I‘m planning to get back into the swing of posting updates on my reading journey these last few weeks of my maternity leave.

How has everyone been? I‘ve missed you all! Introducing my little guy: Isaac! Born 9/18/19! #thegreeneyedreader
