Part 1
I can't fathom falling in love with someone in a week, not hard enough to feel the way Sarah does. Maybe scared to be alone after divorce. Also I think I know exactly what Tommy is suspicious of 🤔

Took a break from reading Bridgeton series and It was Meh! At the end of the book it asks if you think everyone was equally to blame and no I think they took advantage of Laura for being young and Naive. Although it was frustration how she caught feelings so quickly but again young naive. Dominic should have known better than to take advantage of Laura. I understand Alex 's need to protect his child from Ruth but he also went about it horribly

"She mattered. He didn't know how else to put it..
And after 10 years of her just b being... there, it was rather bizarre for her to matter quite so much. "

Ok I loved the Cinderella aspect although it was mostly just the very beginning of it. I cried from all the unfairness in Sophie's life but also admired her outlook on life and determination. As for Benedict ugh I know he came to his senses in the end especially when he went storming into prison but still I don't think he'll be my favorite brother. Oh but Violet **chef's kiss**

The prison scene where the bridgertons mother and son put Araminta in her place! And Go Posy for growing a backbone !

blurb

It had certainly been his right to ask, but it had also been her right to refuse. And once she had done so, he should have let her be.

Has Benedict come to his senses?a little late for that..

blurb
Betty_Boa

I dislike him 😒

blurb
Betty_Boa

I'm not sure I like Benedict very much 🤔
His offer to Sophie was denied and while it's nice he insists on still helping her its only to torture her into accepting

blurb

Just started 1st chapter. It's giving very much Cinderella vibes.

It was sad the way Kate thought so little of herself because of how society kept comparing her to her sister Edwina.

I really enjoyed this book. I felt so immersed in Indian culture and tradition. While I'm not Indian nor immigrant I'm a daughter of immigrants and I related so much to Preeti when she talks about not feeling like she belongs to neither, too American for India and to Indian for America. Same girl same. Leaning about India's caste system was so interesting. The food 😋 😍 I want some authentic Chai tea 🍵 now!

Had me on the edge of my seat I will definetly recommend to anyone who loves thrillers! So good and suspenseful would make a great horror/thriller movie. And yes it left me a little traumatized to use these rest areas along highways 😲🤣

shellleigh33 One of my favorite thrillers, and this book left me feeling the same way about rest areas!!! (edited) 2y

Haven't been on here for a while doesn't mean I haven't been reading 😉. I really loved this one Vivian can't help herself in listening to the towns gossip via her job. Until that is she hears some gossip that hits close to home. Also it made me think bored housewives have nothing better to do than be snobby and cruel. Not Vivian her fault was being nosey lol but I loved her character development towards end of book

I really loved this book. Loved Susan!! Susan is orphaned at 45 and is in a bit of predicament already, when her mom passes. She has to deal with why her mother would give the family home to her irresponsible brother and put up with his annoyingly tall friend Rob. I never did warm up to her Aunt Sylvia.. 😕

I really enjoyed this book! Some books have so many characters it feels overwhelming to keep up. This book on the contrary I think it was better cause of all the who could of dunnits 😊 I was suspicious of everyone!! Lol Great book. Not as great as She lies on Wait by same author.

So I've seen the Hunger Games movie and they skimmed over so much. Like certain things were if it wasn't for having read the book weren't obvious or explained. I'm thinking the after the success of hunger games maybe the next movies might include more details. Idk lol maybe I don't know what I'm talking about 🤷🏻‍♀️

The Hunger Games Trilogy | Suzanne Collins

Ok I still can't believe it took me so long to read these phenomenal books. After finishing the series I was still in panem reliving certain scenes and feelings. I loved the first book and Katniss selflessly volunteering for her Prim. And poor Rue I cried more for her when katniss and peeta visited district 11 and they all gave her the 3 finger salute I lost it 😭 Oh and Peete how I heart thee! The second book and all the new characters⬇️⬇️

Betty_Boa Is probably my favorite of the 3 books. Johanna being my favorite! The mockingjay feels like my least favorite. But regardless I loved this series and as excited as I was I no longer want to watch movies for fear of disappointment. I know books will always be better than the movie but, Do the movies give these books any justice? Asking for a friend 😋 3y
BookwormM The movies are actually really good and they bring the books to life in a way I didn‘t think was possible and Katniss‘ dresses are totally amazing 3y
Betty_Boa Omg yes I think that alone is a good reason to watch her dresses! That also reminds me Cinna 😭 3y

I saw this book being compared a lot to One day in December & while yes there was similarities. One dau in December was much better in my opinion. This book was good do read it there just wasn't enough drama in it. You take walks around London how hard was it to share your feelings. Ask Alex about the whole Emma thing? I just feel they tiptoed around each others feelings instead of confronting each other which if that was the route give me Drama😆

So it seemed like a really slow start I wanted to dnf. Glad I didn't cause it did get better. Once I was actually invested in finding out what happened to Nel Abbot.

Betty_Boa It was a like/ hate with her sister Jules like communication would have saved them both some heartbreak even with the "misunderstanding". I loved Lena and Nickie definitely my faves. Soo SPOILER the culprit is totally not who I was expecting it to be ? I Know obvious is Patrick Townsend, but I had my money on jealous vengeful Helen So totally mind blown there!! 3y

After Laurie believes she's found love, she spends a year looking for him. When she finally does find him he's a taken man by none other than her bff.. Jack also struggles with inappropriate dreams and feelings for Laurie. Laurie doesn't know how to tell her bff Sarah or whether she should even. The ending made me happy. #currentlyreading #currentlyread
