Three words. Christian murder mystery. Umm what?! This book was actually really good. I loved the storyline. The author did such an excellent job of keeping my attention while also bringing God into story without it being too cliche. I usually do not enjoy these short stories. But these 217 pages packed a big punch! 3.5 out of 5 stars for me!

I read so many great reviews on this book. I guess I‘m an odd bird. I did not enjoy this one. Personally I was not captured in the story until the last 200 pages. All in all it was not a bad story. However I was almost done with the book before I began to enjoy what I was reading. I also feel the story ended a bit abruptly. The ending felt “unfinished” and I would have liked to see a happier ending for some of the characters.

Wow! I was hooked from the first page. Just when I thought I figured it out, here comes another plot. I‘ve never read anything by this author before but she is most definitely on my radar for future reads. 10/10 recommend!

I‘m going to be honest, I have mixed feelings about this one. Yes, it was a great story. And I was so happy to see Lily get her happy ending. This could have been a great slow burn love story. However I personally feel the author rushed this one. I also wish more details were given into Atlas‘s past.

I was not prepared for the emotional roller coaster Colleen Hoover took me on with this book. I found myself getting angry when Lily was hurt. I found myself feeling happy when Lily and Ryle were doing good. I also found myself feeling proud for breaking the cycle when Lily asked Ryle for a divorce. Such a good read! 5 out of 5! #52bookclub24 (prompt 25: an author everyone has read)

Deblovestoread I still haven‘t read a Hoover. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
Kristy_K Cried when I read this one. By far her best book in my opinion. 3mo
Book_Lover95 @Deblovestoread you should give her a try! I was pleasantly surprised. 3mo

Book_Lover95 @Kristy_K I‘m not going to lie, I cried as well. I was not prepared for the emotional roller coaster I went on while reading this book. Now I HAVE to know how it ends. So naturally I‘ve started the second book in the series: It Starts With Us. 3mo
Librarybelle Funnily, I‘ve not read any by her! 3mo
Book_Lover95 @Librarybelle I recommend reading this one. I can‘t vouch for any of her other books. But this one was very good! 3mo
Librarybelle 👍❤️ 3mo
BarbaraBB I haven‘t read her either but it does sound like it packs a punch 🤜🏼 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 3mo
LaraReads I enjoyed this one! It‘s the only Hoover I have been fond of. Interested to see what you think of the sequel! I wanted Atlas‘s story so bad, but I was not a fan of the 2nd book. I disliked it so much, it made me retroactively not like this one quite as much as I had before. 🤦🏻‍♀️ (edited) 3mo

My first book of the year! This is also my first book by Colleen Hoover! I‘ve heard a lot of mixed reviews for this author. Either you love her or hate her. I‘m curious, what is your opinion of Colleen Hoover?

DanaR I read Verity first and was HOOKED. This one reads differently, but I can understand why (given the personal note at the end). I‘m about to go binge some more of her books! 3mo

I initially only read this book to break up some of the heavy thriller and dark romance books I‘ve been reading. This story is short, but I actually enjoyed it. I appreciated the time the author took to develop some background between the characters. I typically do not enjoy these short stories as they are predictable, however I enjoyed this short read.

Wow! This my first dark romance book I‘ve ever read. It definitely did not disappoint! I honestly was not expecting it to end on a cliffhanger. Usually I can predict how the end will be, but boy was I wrong! I loved every page of this book. It was both terrifying and fascinating at the same time. 100% worth the hype!

134 pages in, 317 pages left to go. I‘m hoping this book gets better as the patient continues to receive treatment. However I‘m having a hard time following the story line. I can‘t visualize the scenes unfolding in my mind as I read as I normally do. I do not feel any connection to any of the characters at this point. I‘ve only bailed on 4 books so far in my entire life. I‘m trying hard to finish this one out, but I‘m struggling.

Crossed a few things off my bucket list this weekend!

1. Met my favorite Author (Nicholas Sparks)
2. Got a signed copy of his new book (Dreamland)

* I haven‘t started this book yet. I‘m currently in the middle of 3 different books 😅

Kind-Hearted Woman | Janet Spaeth

I would rate this 3 out of 5 stars. This story takes place during the Great Depression in 1935. Collin Hammett sets off on the road to find the meaning of life. His trip is cut short when he find himself sitting on a couch with no memory of who he is or why he is there.

It was a short read with a happy ending. In my opinion the storyline is very predictable. I did not become very attached to the characters as I normally do.

I need some help from my fellow littens. There was book I read about a woman who lost her voice after an airplane accident, she then married this rich older man, and after his death she fleas to her home town but there is a killer on the loose. The killer is a female who cuts people's faces off after they are murdered. I CANT NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME REMEMBER THE AUTHOR OR THE TITLE.. Anyone read a book like this? I need some help!

Reggie Sorry, no, but sounds intriguing. 5y
Book_Lover95 It was sooo good! But I can't remember the name of it and it's about to drive me insane 5y
Book_Lover95 @Reggie found the book! After several moves and many life changing events I found it!! It‘s called The Women Who Couldn‘t Scream by Christina Dobb 😆 2y
Reggie Thank you for the reply! Lololol 2y

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I visited the site of a brothel at an ancient Roman ruin in Morroco, dating back to the 3rd century BC (or something like that). Prostitution has been around since the beginning of mankind basically. 5y

I honestly did not expect to like this book, much less this EARLY on in the read. P.S. yes I'm eating Chef Boyardee Beefaroni with cheese (I'm a weird eater)

I'm definitely not saying that I understand life and everything in a wonderful ray of sunshine and rainbows now. I will however say that I was definitely struggling with the death of someone very close to me as well. And just like Kate, I also blamed myself. I definitely feel that the reading of this book was in perfect timing to my healing and grief process... "God's timing is perfect"
