Pickpick

Read Ruth Ware‘s debut novel & felt while it was good there was certainly room for her to grow as an author Her next two books felt as if she were just trying to meet a deadline. I had little hope for The Turn of the Key. THIS is the novel I was hoping for. An intriguing story full of twists & turns, a narrator you aren‘t certain you can trust & a bit of creepiness had me turning pages like mad. Read in one sitting. Cannot wait for her next book!

Cailey_Mac Great review! I also felt that way about her earlier books, so I‘ve been skipping over this one; maybe I will give it a try! 4w
MrBook Great review! 3w

Y‘all, this book! Drop whatever you‘re reading and pick this up right now! But don‘t read it after dark because I did. So don‘t. Just don‘t. T. Kingfisher (who also writes under the name Ursula Vernon) weaves a tale that is wonderfully spooky and mesmerizing. Mouse is the kind of protagonist you want to know in real life. So very good.

sprainedbrain Great review. I concur! 4w

Was not at all what I was expecting. Almost set this one aside as I strongly disliked Elizabeth from the start. But I soon came to understand why she was the way she was. This one will have you questioning who is the real monster(s).

Came home to find two blooms had opened on my Passion flower. I‘m more happy about that than I am about finishing this book tonight. Not bad, just not digging it as much as I did her others. Found it a bit dull. 😕

Who got a promotion at work yesterday and finished up this book today? This girl!!! 😁Jonathan Maberry is easily one of my all time fave authors. No one else comes close to doing zombie apocalypse as well as Maberry. And if YA is your thing, check out his YA post-apocalyptic zombie series Rot & Ruin.

Happy Sunday, Littens! Haven‘t been on much lately. The universe decided I needed to be thumped between the eyes & am currently major struggling in every single aspect of my life. Deal w/ anxiety on the regular but for past couple months have been having ALL the anxiety ALL the time. Starting a new job tomorrow & today trying to ease back into reading life. Even if the rest of my life is poop, there will always be books. Please send good vibes.

One of my favorite places to read. I‘ve begged for a porch swing but #manpanion says I‘d never come inside or stop reading if I had one. 🤣 Also, curled up in my favorite chair with a cat or two is wonderful. #whereiread
