Just some light reading about murders in and around my home town spanning from the 19th to the 20th centuries... Reading these is slightly terrifying considering I recognize some of the locations and because its not fiction...#TeamSlaughter #scarathalon #murdercity #truecrime

I absolutely loved this book! The characters are complex and endearing and I did not expect some of the events to take place. In hindsight I could see it but it wasn‘t too obvious and the epistolary style is refreshing and makes it feel unique and genuine! I also really enjoyed all of the literary references! I highly recommend it! #bibliophile #YA #lgbtq #mustread

Hey Everyone!! I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful summer! I recently moved across the country and am feeling slightly overwhelmed and was wondering if anyone had read any uplifting or enjoyable books lately? I have a collection but they‘re rather serious and I am hoping for a lighthearted read! Thanks! I am looking forward to any suggestions!

RaimeyGallant I haven't read anything uplifting lately, but I hope others have! (edited) 4mo
Karisa I like reading Sarah Addison Allen or Rainbow Rowell books when I need something upbeat. They are like fuzzy blankets to my brain. I also love meditation apps like Insight Timer when I need to calm myself. Hope you find something to soothe. 💗 4mo

I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this book but I was also weary because I was unsure if anyone could do an adaptation of her diary justice. With that said, I have to admit that I absolutely loved the adaptation! The graphics were stunning and thoughtful and they did not take away from the importance and depth of Anne‘s diary. I definitely recommend it!. #annefrank #adaptation #memoir #graphicnovel

This book is horrifyingly beautiful. The subject matter is disturbing and difficult to stomach at times but the writing is beautiful and the protagonist is, in my opinion, a very strong and likeable young woman. If you do not have a strong stomach this is not for you. I couldn‘t put it down for long though and finished the book in two days. #thriller #horror #bibliophile #bookworm

Michollio I LOVE this book. I don't think the other ones are as good, but I enjoyed them as well. 7mo
AWildMandaPanda @Michollio I loved it as well! I heard the others aren‘t as good but I am still intrigued. Do we get to hear about Maya/Samira again? Thanks! 7mo

AWildMandaPanda @IndoorDame that‘s good to know. I just wanted to know if it was a good read I didn‘t want to read something potentially very disturbing if it wasn‘t good. I know she wrote a few others is the sequel called “roses of May” ? :) (edited) 10mo

I really enjoyed this one! At first it was a little slow and I thought I knew what to expect but I was wrong. I kind of guessed who did it but there was a twist at the end I never saw coming! I really enjoyed this one, but I think an extra bonus was I was in a small town in Germany right on the Swiss border when I read it, which gave me a feel for the atmosphere :) if you get a chance I recommend you give it a try :) #bibliophile #suspense
