The Lies I Tell | Julie Clark

Been MIA for awhile. I figured with school being out, I‘d be able to read more. But then work has gotten in the way. And now Covid. Truly thought I could avoid it forever, but who was I fooling? I couldn‘t read yesterday because the headache felt like death. Today isn‘t as bad so I‘m reading while I can. I‘m enjoying Meg‘s POV/chapters.

Karisa I couldn‘t read while I had it either. Brain was too tired. Ended up binge watching Downtown Abbey. 😊 Hope you‘re feeling better soon! 💗 3mo
Tera0707 @Karisa thank you. I‘ve been watching (classic) Disney movies. Downton Abbey sounds lovely though. I might have to rewatch it as well. Or maybe watch the new movie. 3mo
AmyG Oh no. Hooe you feel better soon! 3mo

This one was a bit slow at first, but no less brutal than the other books in the series. But towards the end… holy crap, I didn‘t want to put it down! Joona‘s his typical badass self, I miss Saga, and the killer is just vicious. Left with a bit of a hint for the next book. Can‘t wait!

I‘ve been a bit MIA. School work has taken over my life, but that was to be expected. This book is…okay, so far. It‘s very slow, and I‘m not turning that pages as fast as I did with the previous books. Yet I‘m curious as to what‘s going to happen. I‘ve made it this far so I‘m going to keep going. #joonaisabadass

Ummm, well… not a lot happened. The innocence of the MC was kind of annoying to me lol. This was the first audiobook I‘ve ever finished. And I can see why people like them. I popped my AirPods in and did some housework or whatever else needed done. Kept me entertained but could‘ve been better.

I didn‘t want to read this; I refused. But then my daughter‘s friend asked her if I had read it, and I said “Screw it, let‘s check it out.” And I am so glad I did! Holy cow, it was funny and romantic! I was so frustrated with Olive and Adam (in a good way, if that makes sense), and I just loved their story! Thanks to my daughter‘s friend for asking because I loved it! (I may be a little tipsy 🍷 so I‘m rambling, but ugh read it!)

I don‘t read a lot of nonfiction, and after reading two great memoirs these past couple months, that will have to change. I loved this book! I laughed, got a headache from trying not to cry, and was always hungry (how she describes the food 👌🏻). A great book to end the year, and I met my GR goal! 😄

Do you ever feel guilty for reading? I think this is why I‘ve been such a slow reader for years now. I used to devour books, but anymore, I feel guilty. I know I should be studying, or cleaning, or doing something productive, but I really want to just read this book (so good!). My husband told me to take advantage (no homework) and do some reading. Love that man 🥰 (sorry… I was just curious if anyone else ever felt that way)

Yuki_Onna Your hubby sounds great - and is absolutely right! 👍
(And yep, I also feel like you in that respect *cough* every now and then... *cough* 😄)

It‘s been five years since I‘ve been to the beach (we lived in Ventura, CA and now live in Texas. Which has beaches of course, just haven‘t been). I am loving this book. It‘s pretty windy and a bit hard to read at the moment, but I wanted to capture that I am here, with my toes in the sand. Location: Orange Beach, Alabama. And it is beautiful.

jdiehr I lived in Ventura and moved to Oregon almost 3 years ago! I miss it 10mo
Tera0707 @jdiehr yes! I definitely took living there for granted. I miss the beach being only five minutes away and just that coastal feel. 10mo
jdiehr @Tera0707 Totally. I was born in Oxnard, grew up in Thousand Oaks, and raised my kids in Ventura. In hindsight, I realize it was pretty close to paradise. I hope you're happy in Texas 10mo

Our Literacy class (EC-6 grade) has my daughter and I checking out more children‘s books, and this one was beautiful! Absolutely beautiful. My husband is half-Japanese, so our son is a quarter, and he (our son) has eyes that kiss in the corners. (My mother in law, who is Japanese, thought it was so cool that he has more of the “Japanese eyes” than my husband lol)

I bought this book yesterday. Normally I would just add it to my ever growing TBR pile, but it just called to me and I wanted to start reading it right away. One thing my Literacy class has encouraged me to do is to browse the children‘s section a bit more and I‘m glad I did. I already want to keep reading, but I have a project to work on for another class (building a 3D classroom 😬)

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 I got a little tired of hearing how Adam couldn‘t see faces, and how they all have secrets and lies. There‘s not a single character to like. But overall, it wasn‘t bad. The twist was a bit far fetched but it sure kept me reading. *picture from Pinterest. I was too lazy to take my own and this one is really pretty

Woke up to a full-blown migraine this morning. Called out of work only to be told, “Well, if you feel better please come in.” They‘ve clearly never experienced migraines before. Straight up told them not to count on it. Anyway, I want to read so bad but it hurts to do so. About to go crawl back into bed; made a quick appearance to take this pic and say hi to the fam 😆

Mehso-so

Unpopular opinion, but I found the majority of this boring. There were some good parts, but I feel like there was so much unnecessary info-dump that I ended up skimming those parts. There was one part that gave me the creeps but that was it. Giving a so-so for that creepy part, the parts about the victims (morbid?) and the chapter with the interview with the Boogeyman.
