Fragments of the Lost | Megan Miranda

This year I read ALL of Megan Miranda‘s books and I have to say that after reading this book, I think it takes spot number 1 on my list.

Just finished Soulprint so now onto my last Megan Miranda book of 2018. Two new ones headed our way in 2019. One in January and one in April or May ☺️

It was a truly great concept with the soul. I loved that. I love that Cameron wasn‘t afraid to go with her in the end. I knew Dominic was Liam from the get go, kind of obvious. But, like always, Megan Miranda did an incredible job.

Another W O W!

This book started off rather slowly compared to her other books so I got nervous it wouldn‘t be as thrilling. Boy, was I wrong! Once it picked up it escalated quickly. (Continued in comments since I wrote too much...)

MishAnn I mean yes, hanging in a car upside down over nothingness while your crush saves you is terrifying, but then more terrifying things happen. You sneak out to see your crush get his hero award. You get home and realize everything at the house is wrong. Now your crush is trapped in the house with you and then add in two more friends while you‘re trapped, getting shot at, trying to escape... 13mo
MishAnn Then you think everything is ok minus your mom missing but then you‘re trapped in that house again with your mom and three bad guys. I thought the bad would never end. 13mo
MishAnn I loved Ryan and Kelsey‘s relationship though. Hearing him say he liked her all through their summer job. When they were in his room expressing what they were actually thinking. Even when she found out he ran her off the road (accidentally but still). I just liked the way their relationship bloomed. They already went through so many hard things that everything else should be like cake!

You need to read this book!

Another gripping story. Not as much of a mystery since I kind of guessed some of the stuff but still really well done. To feel like you‘re going crazy and then to know you‘re not. I felt like I was going crazy while reading it.

Megan Miranda can WRITE! This was the fourth book of hers I read this year and like the previous three, I couldn‘t put it down. The secrets, the breakup, the curse... everything. It was brilliant. I know the mystery is solved (so to speak) but I hope there‘s another one about them. About their lives a few years later....

I have a feeling I am going to hate this book. A) it‘s slow. B) every chapter is someone else‘s point of view and I despise that.

Missing, Presumed | Susie Steiner

Well, I went to Barnes and Noble to buy more Megan Miranda YA novels but they were completely sold out and told me one wasn‘t even available ever again. So I purchased: Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner, The Good Girl by Mary Kubica, and Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco. Then I came home and ordered Vengeance and Hysteria both by Megan Miranda. Hysteria is supposedly the one no longer available. I have a book problem? #readallthebooks

Ok... now that I‘ve had a few minutes to process...
Everyone in this book is shady as shit. Everything that happens is over the top. He really believed he was the second coming of Christ? He really tried to swallow a ketchup bottle top to have the Heimlich maneuver done and then shits out the detached anal beads? Next time I read a Chuck book, I‘m dropping acid first so I get full crazy feel.

No, I‘m not really going to drop acid...

kricheal 😂😂😂 Chuck is the best! 1y
MishAnn @kricheal it was definitely entertaining. I just needed a mental break before trying another one of his 🤣 14mo
kricheal @MishAnn My favorite of his is Diary. I've read most of his stuff there is always so many moments in his books where I'm thinking "wow did I actually just read that?!" 14mo

I have to say, I liked the movie better. I wish some things from the book made it to the movie: how long they were friends, Miles father, etc. but the ending in the book version was so anti climatic. Not exciting at all...

Super pumped to start this today! Agatha Christie herself said this was her best book.

After I read this, I‘ll re-read Breaking Dawn (don‘t judge me for my comfort books) and then I‘ll get into my spooky books! Pictures to come later to have you help me decide what spooky books to read. (We just loved so everything is packed still)

My boyfriend‘s two grandmothers sent me these three books and I feel obligated to read them even though none are really my speed. What should I start with? Please actually comment and not just like this. Thank you!! #sendhelp #sos

Hooked_on_books I quite liked The Light Between Oceans, so I would start there. It‘s a good character study. I‘m not familiar with the other 2. 1y

I got through to her reading that very predictable letter and then I haven‘t picked it up in almost 3 weeks soooo bail. I don‘t have time for terrible books.

blurb
MishAnn
The Husband's Secret | Liane Moriarty

Ok so I‘m halfway through. Cecelia finally read the letter. Did anyone else read this and hate it? I‘m extremely bored. The letter was predictable and most of the stuff happening in the chapters is just filler like when a college student needs to hit a page quota. YUCK to this book.

tanya1512 All her books are like this I don‘t see the hype about any of them 1y
MishAnn @tanya1512 this is the first one I‘ve picked up. My roommates# highly recommended it. I highly recommend it goes in the trash. 1y

I‘d give this 3.5 stars really. I didn‘t want to put it down but I also felt like it dragged on forever. There were so many things I guessed at and was hoping I‘d be wrong about but I was right. I didn‘t think Ethan was Lizzie and I didn‘t think he murdered Katie but I did realize fairly early on that her family was dead.

Ok so I started this today. I‘m about 75 pages in and I have to say that so far I don‘t get what all the fuss was about. Does the book pick up soon?

Our Chemical Hearts | Krystal Sutherland

This book could ruin you. So much pain in it from basically all the important characters. It almost makes me wonder if love is even real or if we just make it up...

Our Chemical Hearts | Krystal Sutherland

Just started this book and I am in love with it.

“Don‘t you find it strange that whenever anyone asks you to describe yourself, you draw a blank? It should be the easiest thing in the world to talk about-I mean, you are you-but it isn‘t.”

Honestly, this was rough at first. Just very uncomfortable with all the sexual tension between a child and an adult. Once the murders happen though, my God my heart hurt. I‘ve been crying since she drove to Beth‘s apartment to see Kellen for the first time... painful yet powerful.

So, I mean, i just started reading it but like HOW inappropriate does it get between Kellen and Wavy?

JacintaMCarter It's an incredibly uncomfortable read, but (in my opinion) worth it. You just have to be able to cringe through a few parts. 1y

The Perfect Stranger | Megan Miranda

“I, on the other hand, felt too deeply and relied on other people too heavily. I let things get to me, let them simmer and grow until they took me over. I threw myself into a job, a story, a relationship, with no fallback, and was surprised each time I got knocked down, scrambling for anything to hold on to.” - Leah Stevens

Pretty sure Megan Miranda is one of my new favorite authors.

I‘ve been in this horrible funk since August (it‘s been really quite terrible honestly) so I am rereading the Twilight series. I know, her writing isn‘t great but these books make me feel so happy and like anything is possible so I‘m hoping I can get out of my very long funk. Wish me luck (only if you want to)

#LitsyWelcomeWagon #puppy @Kaye here you go! So this is my pup, Buddy, that we rescued. The place we rescued him from had found him in Mexico with a bunch of pit bulls. He was 45 pounds when we adopted him (march 2017) and now he‘s 75 pounds! He‘s gotten taller and filled out and his muscles are JACKED because he chases bunnies around the yard and tries to jump up the fence outside to play with lizards. He‘s the sweetest, cutest pup ever 😍

Kaye Cute ! Thank you 👍 I love the big patch of black on his face 😁 2y
MishAnn @Kaye I‘m going back to bed but when I wake back up I‘ll post one of his full face! His patterns are crazy! 2y
