Man, I loved this book. This is the second book by Taylor Jenkins Reid that has left me emotionally raw at the end of the story. I‘m not sure if I‘m happy or sad, but I‘m glad that I read it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I finally finished Doctor Sleep! I enjoyed this one way more than The Shining. I thought the plot was really interesting and I really liked Abra a lot.

I‘m about halfway through this one and really enjoying it so far! I‘m afraid to admit it, but I‘m kind of liking it more than The Shining right now. We‘ll see how the second half goes...😬

Just finished reading The Shining. I did really enjoy it; however I can‘t help but think it needed a bit more creepiness. Found this lovely photo on IG and had to share 🤣🤷‍♀️

There‘s something about #Halloween that makes me want to decorate for #Christmas 🎃 🎄 I hope the few trick or treaters I had weren‘t too confused by me blaring ‘It‘s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year‘ as I passed out candy. 🍭 😂

Time to curl up with a good book by the tree and enjoy the rest of the night! 📖 🤶

What a mess...I almost DNF‘d this one several times. The story felt all over the place and to be honest the ending was weak at best. Not a great read for me at all. #thriller #fiction #ruthware

Alfrazier21 @MrBook Yea, this one wasn‘t for me! I liked her books #InADarkDarkWood and #TheWomaninCabin10 , but the suspense was weak with this one 🤷‍♀️ 4mo

⭐️⭐️ - Not the book for me. I thought I‘d pick up a Christina Lauren book as a quick, fun, light summer read, but I was left disappointed. I thought the plot was mediocre, the romance was ‘meh‘, and the storyline felt disjointed. Another case of me finishing it just to see what happens (even though you could have easily guessed the ending).

monalyisha Bummer! Do you usually like their stuff? 4mo
Alfrazier21 @monalyisha I‘m not huge into romance, but I had heard their book The Unhoneymooners was really cute. The library didn‘t have it, but they had this one...which wasn‘t my cup of tea. I read their Beautiful Bastard series years ago and remember liking it ok! 4mo
monalyisha @Alfrazier21 I'm typically not super-into the genre, either, but I've liked their other books. They give me Rainbow Rowell vibes, which I'm all about. 4mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️

I would have never imagined a book about a woman who wants to sleep for an entire year could be so interesting. 🤷‍♀️

A privileged and very unlikable main character who decides that sleeping an entire year is the best way to reset her life. Bizarre storyline, but captivating read.

The Library | Sarah Stewart

About 3 weeks ago, I moved to be closer to family. I moved SO MANY books. Boxes, suitcases, tote bags...all full of books. Since I was downsizing, I also had to sort through & decide what books to keep & which ones I wanted to give away, sell, etc. I did this multiple times to make room for the books I love. I decided today that I‘m going to stop hoarding 📚 & start using my local public library. Unless it‘s a book I really ❤️, I‘m not buying it!

rather_be_reading awesome 👏👏 5mo
mom2bugnbee I rarely buy books, unless they're cheap at the used book store. I borrow almost exclusively from my library. Are you now in Putnam County, TN? If so, we have a Nashville Littens community that meets quarterly. I'll be happy to add you to the GroupMe if you're now in our area! 5mo

Meh 🤷‍♀️

Pros: This book got me out of a reading slump
Cons: I wasn‘t invested in any of the characters. Rachel was the most tolerable. I couldn‘t stand all of the name dropping (designers, people, places, etc.). I can‘t imagine living a life where other people‘s opinions were all that mattered to me.

This was not the book for me. I only finished it because I kind of wanted to know what happened to Astrid. I won‘t be continuing the series.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Same here. I just found the whole book kinda . . . dumb. I know a lot of people liked it, but it just wasn‘t for me. 5mo
Alfrazier21 I honestly don‘t know why I bothered finishing it. I didn‘t find it funny at all...just superficial and pretentious. But to each their own! @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled 5mo

I finally finished my Throne of Glass series reread! Actually I finished it weeks ago, BUT I moved and it wasn‘t an easy move either. So in the process of all that I forgot to post my review.

I liked Kingdom of Ash...but I didn‘t love it. I got battle weary to be honest. Overall it was a good read, but not my favorite in the series. I loved Manon‘s storyline the most. I would love to see more of her character.

I read Tower of Dawn and Empire of Storms at the same time and while it felt a bit tedious, I‘m glad I did it this way. It helped me have a better understanding when events that happen in TOD were going on during the events that happen in EOS. Overall I thought this was a solid installment in the TOG series.

A Spark of Light | Jodi Picoult
post image
Mehso-so

I don‘t read Jodi Picoult books often, but when I do, I expect an emotional roller coaster. Unfortunately, for me, that wasn‘t what I found in this book. A Spark of Light is obviously a well researched and thought provoking story; however it almost felt like facts were being thrown at me so often that I couldn‘t develop a connection with the characters. I‘m also not quite sure how I feel about timeline. Overall, this was an ok read for me.

Purrfectpages I bailed on this one for similar reasons. 9mo
KateFulfordAuthor That‘s a good review, thank you 9mo
