If you‘re going to ruin a restaurant by eating there after you find out your dads a serial killer it may as well be Arby‘s 🤢

I loved this! I am a true crime junkie so I don‘t mind the gory details of a true story but this fictionalized story of a family torn apart by Georgia Tann was heartbreaking and beautiful, while also being vague enough about the details that someone less into that can still definitely enjoy it. I‘d compare it to Jodi Picoult style of writing. Definitely recommend.

Good rainy day reading but this book is heart wrenching. Especially knowing it‘s mostly based on true stories. And as a mother of two cute blonde kids it really strikes close to home 😢

I really enjoyed this, there were some heartbreaking moments but overall it was a good read. I think it was even different enough from other wartime novels that I wasn‘t feeling deja vu!

The horrific story is what it is, I just wish there was a bit more information. I guess I‘ll have to read the other books but not sure I want to

I‘ve been in a deep rut :( I‘m going to come nowhere near my annual reading goals and I feel sad and overwhelmed because of all the stuff I have to do always edging out the stuff I want to.
So glad to finally sit down and start this though! A quick read may help me feel better.

The Boston Girl | Anita Diamant
Pickpick

This book finally broke me out of a months long slump. Anyone who knows me knows I normally read a book a week so not being able to get into any I‘ve started since around mid June was painful. I flew through this, it was exactly the right amount of easy read and engaging story to help me flip the switch.

I‘m sorry, I rarely bail and I really wanted to love this book but I‘m soooo bored!! I find myself not reading at all to avoid reading this, which is bad because I have 3 other library books plus a stack of tbr! So I may revisit but for now it‘s a bail!

keys_on_fire So glad to find someone else who felt this way!! 2y

Omg so funny. It‘s like a cross between the Glass Castle and something funny... like a funny celebrity memoir but I can‘t think of any as funny as this one. Maybe Bossypants? Oh well, definitely read it.

I preferred the orphan train but this was a decent read. A bit slow at times. The imagery is beautiful and Kline does do a wonderful job at getting into peoples thoughts.

Amazing! It is hard to believe that this was so recently in the last century. Such a great read although very hard at times. Definitely recommend but not for the faint of heart!

KateFulfordAuthor If you need another recommendation, may I point you to my People‘s Book Prize nominated debut? Sassy female narrative, laugh out dialogue and a pacy plot. Check the link in the bio for 2 free chapters, reviews and more. 2y

1) at minimum once a week; book club plus kids programs have me there frequently
2) I don‘t even know, I‘d love to visit any huge libraries or any that have a neat theme or unique features
3) I can suspend holds so I have my next several book club books on there plus I‘m on the wait list for a couple; probably 6-8. Hidden bodies by Caroline kepnes, middlesex, turtles all the way down and ready player 1 are all there
4) 3

This was a surprise for me, I didn‘t think I‘d like it but it ended up being a really engaging story. Definitely recommend.

irre One of my favorites 😍 2y
Kodak2057 @irre it was a book club pick and the picks haven‘t been... stellar recently so I had low hopes. I knew nothing about it so I planned to read 4 chapters a day so I could get it done but after a few days I didn‘t need to plan to read it! It was great! 2y

It‘s interesting reading about Bundy‘s reaction to the riots and marches of the early 70s. I just read Tuesday‘s With Morrie (also a real person) and he was a professor at the time and fully supporting and joining in whereas Bundy doesn‘t believe that riots and anarchy are the answer. He believes in going through proper channels to produce change.
Interesting which of these men is a psychopathic Killer!
