My #spookathon TBR: All Systems Red, The Devouring Gray, A House of Ghosts, and The Chestnut Man.
This was a fantastic read! I really connected with all of the characters. The plot was believable and the author has an amazing way of making you feel what the characters are feeling every step of the way.
At some points, I was upset over the decisions they made, but they were always authentic to the character's nature and made sense from their perspective. I read this book in one long binge session, and a quick final sprint.

What else is one to read during Holy Week? #Catholic
First book recommended to me in 2019!
There's an analogy in the story about truth being like buried water and no matter what you do, it will always find a way to the surface. The plot of this book is like that as well.
It was slow, but satisfying. I loved the characters. This was more a tale of resiliency and peace in the day-to-day and coming to terms with who you are in your current situation, which I found to be refreshing.
Stacks and stacks of books from around the house to organize and shelve!
I would give this book 3.5 stars.
I really do like a romance that had some sassy banter between the characters, and this had that. However, there were times that I felt that Ren came on too strongly. As a soldier type, he should have more discipline than he displays verbally. The actress‘s male voice in the audiobook really didn't have a good pitch. It just made some of the whack-ass things that Ren was saying sound that much more ridiculous.
Is anyone else doing a “read the rainbow” challenge this year?
I really enjoyed this story, possibly more than Rule/Shaw. I felt that the emotional difficulties that they had to work through in order to have a relationship read true to life. I think there was the right amount of heat and angst, of promise and roadblocks, to make keep the story interesting. It was like a good blend of reality with a hot soap opera.
So sad to only give this 2/5 stars. I was really looking forward to this story. However, the illustrations were great. Really sweet and evocative with great colors.
This book made a point to drive home a moral message. However, I soon found that the MORAL/MESSAGE of the story really was so prominent, it felt that they forgot to make a plot.

2. Mashed potatoes and gravy.
I‘m pretty basic in my likes. 😀 Unfortunately, I work and will miss Thanksgiving Dinner. Eat up for me!
This book caught my attention and I read it straight through without putting it down. It was interesting to read about a vampire struggling with her humanity vis-a-vis her thirst. There were a lot of themes of trust, loyalty, family, bravery, sacrifice, denial, faith, hope, and acceptance that made this a really worthwhile read.
It was an absorbing read and I was always eager to see what they would discover next.
We found out what people did, just not always why, but perhaps that wasn't necessary, because this was Beatrice's story. Beatrice tends to see the good in everyone, but this tendency also makes you miss the dark, complicated things that swirl in everyone's heart.
After all of the adventure, I wasn't expecting an ending so introspective and philosophical.
If a book hangover is the inability to start a new book because you‘re still living in the previous book‘s world... What‘s the name for the condition where you love being in some other world so much that you hop from book to book and ignore real life? #bookwormproblems #930pagesin36hoursandcounting #whatsnext
The sarcasm and repartee between the characters made my snarky heart warm and there were several times that I had to FULL STOP.
I was shouting directions at the characters (as if they could hear me), while in the bottom of my stomach was an icy fear of dread, because it was possible that this was all that was left of the people (characters, Jenn, they aren't real) I loved.
All of the blacked out words were like Profanity Madlibs in my head.
I‘m looking to repurpose a spare bedroom into a library and took some carpet samples home. Then, posed some books next to them (as one does). Which color do you prefer? I‘m kind of torn between B and C.
