Definitely not for everyone, but I loved it. Each character was fascinating in their own way, even the ones on the periphery. I will definitely be reading this one again.

Having COVID really sucks, but it's giving me time to catch up on reading! Loved this book. I like the author's style, it's very conversational, even though a lot of the topics are very heavy.

This was a great book, I only wish it wasn't so short. I felt like it was really getting going when it ended. However, the length would help in terms of recommending it to others, and I added several books to my reading list from the citations.

My problem with e-readers is that I constantly lose mine. Like, I really want to read my book right now, but I have no idea where it is 🥺

Nutmegnc That‘s why I switched to my phone. 🤣 4mo

I wanted to read this before watching the movie, but I think I'll go ahead and just watch it. It was good and still a pick, but didn't quite reach the hype for me. Maybe I'll try it again after a while, in a different mood.

This book was very eye opening about gender identity issues, which is something I don't have much experience with. I was taken aback by this panel, since it's an anxiety dream I have often too. I didn't realize it might be a common nightmare.

Bought a used copy of The Hunt for Red October, and not only is it signed, but there's an invoice from 1986 tucked inside! This is why I love buying used.

DogMomIrene Plus it‘s an invoice from the U.S. Naval Institute, which is even cooler! 9mo

Really wasn't what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it a lot. Not really scary at all, although it's one of my favorite covers for a spooky teen novel.

A fun teen thriller that delivered exactly what I expected and wanted from it. It's the type of tropey that feels comforting.

The first Agatha Christie I ever read, way back in high school! I only vaguely remembered the plot so it was a lot of fun to revisit and I really enjoyed Dan Stevens' narration.

Really hard to rate this book, it's actually two novellas and I have very different feelings about each. The first story 'When Darkness Loves Us' is very creepy and disturbing, I wish it could have been the whole book. The second, 'Beauty Is...' was difficult for me to get into, I actually had to put the book aside for a while. I guess all in all it was fine, but my rating is really just for the first story.

Michael_Gee That first story is wild! Creepy and gross and I loved it. 2y

Hard to believe that anyone could have thought this was real, but then I remember that people were once scared that dungeons and dragons was satanic too. Some of the ideas in this book could've made for a good horror novel, but there was too much holding it back.

I thought this was a pretty enjoyable book, but nothing too exciting. Killer plants aren't the kind of thing you see a lot, which was refreshing!

I kept putting this one off because I knew it was going to be rough. I completely lost it at Patton Oswalt's afterword. Such a fantastic book.

This book fell firmly in the "not for me" category. There's nothing really wrong with it, it's cute, but I just wasn't interested. I did really love the naked cover of the book though, I love taking off a dust jacket to find there's something underneath.
