The Silence of the Lambs | Thomas Harris

It was pretty good. Read fast. But dare I say it...?..... the movie was better. At least for me. Honestly the movie had more depth of character for me. However the book was still a pick. A solid 3.5 stars.

So when I should be studying for a test and working on school stuff, I read about Mercy! I love this series! It‘s one of my favorites and of course I‘ll read this book again!

In Cold Blood | Truman Capote

A solid 3.5 stars. Not 4 because it took me over a year to read it. I would start and stop. Maybe if I had read this before some other true crime.....but that being said Capote has a way with words and now I‘ll be reading his other stuff too.....so. It‘s a win! Definitely read this if you want to see the advent of the “true crime” novel.

I‘m only a third generation American. My great grandparents came over and made new lives as Americans. There is so much that is easy to forget and to take for granted. This helps to remind me that save for Native Americans we are all the products of immigration. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My new Libby pick. It came up as a Harry Potter alternative so here‘s to escapism!

Tamra West lives in our little town! 😁 My kids have loved the first in the series and their teacher said this year the whole class just couldn‘t get enough. We‘ll be reading the second at home. 12mo
Bookishlie Wow. I‘m about halfway in and so far it‘s really good. I was looking for something a tad bit older but this is a really good opener. I will be reading the whole series! 12mo

4 stars. An awesome cozy mystery. These are my go to warm and lovely feelings. It‘s genre book that hits the tropes BUT is a lovely read anyway. Especially for those that love books. And the end had a little bit of twist so that was nice! I‘m hooked and will probably read the 2nd book coming out here shortly!

This was absorbing and easy to read for someone who doesn‘t know a lot about Marilyn Monroe. I will say the author seems to take liberties with thoughts and feelings in people presenting them as facts, but I‘m not a stickler for scholarly authenticity in my pop culture icons. It was very interesting and readable.

blurb
Bookishlie

Current read. It is so sad and fascinating. It‘s like reading a train wreck.

Bklover I‘ve often thought I‘d like to read a book about Marilyn but there are so many out there! Is this one you‘d recommend? 12mo
Bookishlie This is my first one. I‘m in the first third and so far it‘s really good. There‘s a lot of conjecture where the author speaks to what she is thinking but that doesn‘t bother me. He backs it up with comments or quotes she‘s said stated. 12mo

Wow. 3.5 the ending was a surprise which is very rare for me. It bogs down a bit in the middle but still a very solid first in a series!

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn‘t so in depth that it was drudgery but moved along fast enough that I actually finished it two days.

KTOHARA I can't wait to read it! There's a long list at the library. I'm hoping they'll buy more copies! Was it really depressing? Some of the Holocaust books are more than I can handle. 12mo
Bookishlie @KTOHARA so it does get a bit descriptive of what some of the people did but it focuses more on the search and history of the searches then atrocities. 12mo
KTOHARA Thanks so much! I'm sure I'll enjoy it! 12mo

While this was really good, it read a bit like I imagine a Jane Austen novel would read (I have yet to read one). And I‘ve attempted Austen multiple times but have yet to actually finish any of her novels. This one I did finish and will probably keep up with the series.

Bookishlie @Melissa_J It‘s a tassen mug. The characters name is “impish”. They show emotions. 1y

When life, responsibility, and adulting become too much I save my favorites for re-reading and they never disappoint:) Kate is independent, stubborn,and a loner in an Atlanta slowly crumbling from technology back into magical madness. She‘s a broke mercenary who suddenly needs to figure out who killed her Guardian. Madness, mayhem, and snarky smart-assedness ensues.

5 stars!!! I'm in hangover. I'm in shock. I want to sell my house but an RV and head out to hang out with these people! Their stories are heartrending, uplifting, scary, and everything in between. This was a well written book by an author who approached her work with respect and love. I will read this again and probably gift it and rave about it!!

Suet624 I finished this several days ago and still can‘t review it. It was stunning. 2y
Bookishlie @Suet624 I know I'm going to watch some of her cspan book interviews she did for the Wisconsin book festival. Then I'm going to have to dead it again. 2y
Suet624 I just keep talking about the book to friends. Amazon! Beet farms! Just saw LA banned people from sleeping overnight in RV‘s and cars. Social security checks of $400. This is all so messed up. 2y
Bookishlie I know! I can't believe the stuff she talks about. And I am such an Amazon junkie. Now its a catch. Stop ordering and people lose jobs or support modern day sweatshops:( 2y

Nora Roberts is my guilty pleasure. This one is really good so far. Alot darker than her usual. The sections are so pretty.

RaimeyGallant This doesn't sound like Nora Roberts at all! 2y
DiannaHardy I might use this as my introduction to Nora, since everyone is always shocked I've never read her 😜 I like the darker reads. 2y
Bookishlie Yeah. Its reading kinda like The Stand but not so crass. I like Stephen King but he can be vulgar and raunchy. 2y
ladym30 Just ordered this book. Love dark reads! 2y
