My favourite auntie recommended this book/series to me. She insisted I start from the beginning. I do what my sweet, lovely auntie tells me to do ❤️

HardcoverHearts My mom told me the same thing and I have not regretted it! It's a lovely series with great characters. 2y

Lauren Oliver is a clever writer. The characters in this book made me cringe, and feel genuine concern. I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.

L_auren I loved this book!!! I friend recommended her YA book Before I Fall which I also enjoyed. Reading this made me want her to publish more adult though. 2y
Angelala007 @L_auren this is the first of hers for me. I will definitely read more but I'm pretty sure I will feel the same as you! 2y

This is a fun book. Having thrown off the shackles of my firm "one book at a time" rule that I imposed on myself at the age of 12, I'm enjoying this when I need something light.

By the end of this book I disliked EVERY CHARACTER. And the ending? Don't even talk to me. ✋🏻I've already ranted to @shawnmooney so most of my vitriol has been spewed. And yet I'm giving this book a So-So rating. I'm weird like that.

shawnmooney Yeah as I said I have this book on the shelf but the more I hear about it and sample her Twitter persona I am pretty sure I won't even bother trying this one. 3y
TheLudicReader I hated this book. 2y

Just finished it. I couldn't put it down. Perhaps because it was set in the 80's and reminded me of my own awkward youth. I recommend it to anyone who is now in their 40's and didn't have a charmed childhood. ❤️

A Study in Charlotte | Brittany Cavallaro

Mehso-so

This book made me want to read more Sherlock Holmes. That's a good thing. Charlotte irritated me a bit but that's not her fault 🙄I want to say this is Flavia de Luce with drugs and a pedigree and a human sidekick instead of a bicycle, but that seems trite. I will read the second book in the series if only because I have a wee crush on Watson.

BarbaraJean This has been on my #TBR forever as well... still haven't picked it up. The thing with my copy is that it's bound wrong... the cover's upside down! I got it at a library book sale and didn't notice till I got it home. Looking forward to reading it in public... 😂 3y

Re-Reading in anticipation of the series starting April 30th. I will be watching it with a group of friends. I first read this book as a teenager, when I gobbled up everything Margaret Atwood wrote. It's a different book this time around.

I loved a few of the characters, but the book didn't grab me in the way I thought it would. I would still like to watch the series. Sometimes it's not the fault of the book. Sometimes it's my state of mind. So I'll not pan this book. I blame myself. If I read it at another time I would likely love the f&$k out of it.

Merethebookgal The first book is my least favorite of the trilogy. I watched most of the first season of the series, and it's really different from the books, but I liked it! 3y

Loving this book so far. I'm interested in watching the series. Gotta read the book first #bookwormrules

Autumnscribe Just discovered the show on Netflix last week; I really like it so far. Immediately started looking for the books upon viewing the second episode. :) I have heard that the books are very different, and slightly more misanthropic than the show, so glad to hear they are good (at least so far). 3y
Angelala007 @Autumnscribe now you are making me break my rule and take a peek at the show. Rules are made to be broken :) 3y
shawnmooney I've never read it either and didn't know there was a show. Eager to hear your thoughts once you're finished, girlfriend! BTW, Happy New Year! 💖💖 3y
Angelala007 @shawnmooney Must be the only book on the planet you haven't read! Happy New Year ! 😘😍 3y
Myhusbandhatesreading I skipped the books and started watching the show because the reviews on the books didn't look that great but I really like the show so now I have to go back and read the books. 3y
