This cover always scared me away for some reason. This was the right amount of off kilter and funny. I really loved it.

Looking forward to possibly lightening things up with this one.

I haven't heard too many people talking about this book. TBH I'm not sure how I first heard about it. But is really good. It's funny. I can maybe say more when it's over. I do not know where it is going.

Next up. The last book fucked me up, I was not emotionally ready for the last 200 pages.

I don't know ya'll. There was a lot of hype last year. I finally got around to it and it wasn't for me. It was too long or the plot was too slow, I'm not sure which.

Giving this one a try. I hate the cover btw. But I read the word "epic" in the description and was all in.

Loooooooved this one. I do love a traditional thriller/mystery with no psychological element. This was great. Vega did grate on me at first but I grew with her in the end.

A big MEH for me. Started out so good and then wrapped up a bit to neatly for me. The reveal was a letdown to me 🤷🏽‍♀️

The Plot | Jean Hanff Korelitz

It was fine. I saw it coming and I NEVER figure out plots before the end. There was a lot of hype for this one and I think it's bc "serious" writers like books about writers. Instead of a pic of the book (it was an e-book from the library) here is a pic of the wounded kitten we found. She is a million times better!

julesG That's a cute melon slice. Much better than the usual cone of shame. 9mo
Skeebies05 @julesG she has been through so much but the traditional cone of shame was what broke her. She went on a hunger strike 😂 9mo

Thing I hate so much in women's fiction: Best friends who talk shit about each other or act annoyed with their alleged best friend.

I love Jamie Fox, love love him, ever since his In living color days. This book is funny but I want more of his own life for his next book.

This is me "working from home". I am watching my email. We found a wounded kitten the other day and she had surgery yesterday so I'm home with her.

Louise How dear of you to help this kitten. May she heal well and gain strength every day. Happy Holidays! 9mo
squirrelbrain She looks very cosy in there, hope she recovers well. ❤️ 9mo

It started out so good but 3/4 in Anna really started to annoy me. So naive for a grown woman. And there were characters who just show up for no compelling reason (looking at you Ken).

This one has a pretty low rating on here. But I really liked it! Besides a bizarre Serena Williams sidetrack moment, I loved it.

This was my first book by this author. It was ok. It didn't have enough suspense for me. I do want to try more of her books.

I don't know what I keep reading books like this: slow, tedious, attempts to be vague and mysterious, always alluding to secrets, and then the last 1/4 is good. 🙄 but A+ for that setting!

I've had this book on my Nook since the day it came out last year. Just finished it today. I liked it quite a bit. Sort of retro redeemed himself after Survive the night. One thing that does slightly bug me is women characters. They are just a little off sometimes. Not a complete fool writing women but could use just some slight corrections

New books! My male friend (?) and I browsed the bookstore last night. We "browsed" and ended up buying four books. I got three and he got one (like an amateur?)

I just didn't like this one. I was annoyed and frustrated through the entire book. By far my least favorite of his. It all felt so tedious and moved slow.

I read this book fast. It's been a long time since I've been able to do that! I liked the characters so much that I didn't mind that the "twists" were a little predictable.
