Nine Lives | Peter Swanson

Sometimes I forget how much I love a good mystery thriller, but this one reminded me. It is super fast paced, the author certainly didn't stretch anything out for a higher page count. I almost wish it had slowed down a bit and gave us more clues and time to figure out the mystery. But is was a fun ride anyway.

I'm going to start with finishing How High We Go in the Dark and Queen of the Night. Then my Bookspin and Doublespin. Then if I get to take my Staycation at the end of the month I'm going to try to do as many of my picks on Audio while I do some projects around the house.

I love when an author brings two different worlds together and blends them into an amazing story. It would have been a compelling enough book just about a Chinese American woman trying to make it in "Old Hollywood", but throw in that magic and monsters are real and it turns things up a notch. Took me a bit to get used to the writing style, but then it was smooth sailing

#BookspinBingo #Freespace😃
I had expected this to be a thriller, but I would probably describe this more as a slowburn mystery. Its a quiet book very atmospheric and the first audio book to actually make me ugly cry. While most of the book seems calm, and characters are pretty soft, there is just an air of tension that runs through it. Everything seems alright, but something is about to go down. ⬇️

Tera66 In every little thing that happened I was seeing bloodthirsty rogue 🐻, hatchet murders, and boogeyman hiding everywhere. But I didn't expect the ending or that it would make me back my eyes out. I really like this one, four 🌟 2mo

I only finished 4 books last month, but To Paradise was so long I gave it two spots on my Bingo Board.
To Paradise I did partial physical and mostly audio.
Along Came A Spider was read on kindle, but was a library book.
A Dirty Job was a book I had purchased on my kindle along with Rubbish Pet Portraits.

Rubbish Pet Portraits | Hercule Van Wolfwinkle

Pickpick

This started out as a father encouraging his son to be creative, but soon he was drawing himself. He jokingly put his "pet portraits" on FB for sale, soon requests start pouring in for him to draw their pet and some offering to actually pay! He instead asked for donations to go to a homeless charity and raised so much money so quickly. The book is hilarious ?. The authors descriptions and then the customer reviews!???

#AlmostAChunksterChallenge @TheAromaofBooks
I don‘t enjoy short story collections because they leave me frustrated and unsatisfied, and while none of the stories in this book could be considered short they left me feeling the same way. I am so disappointed, I have not read A Little Life but have heard how emotional it is and how much the book hit people right in the feels. So I had hoped that I was about to read something similar. ⬇️

Tera66 But in the end I just felt angry!! I did start by reading the physical copy but I was struggling so I switched to audio. And while I did enjoy the audio much more, and the performances are great, I still feel let down. I did really like some parts and I think I would have liked the three parts as whole books on their own. I just don‘t know what the author was going for with this. 3mo

This is the first book in the Alex Cross series. I had read one of the later books as part of a book club and always wanted to get back and start at the beginning.
This was super fast paced, and kept me reading past my bedtime. Had plenty of twists and turns, been awhile since a thriller has had me glued to my book like that.

This is the second book I have read by this author, and just enjoy his writing so much. He cracks me up! He creates characters that are deeply flawed but still lovable. Even the "villains" have pretty great dialog. And this story is right in my wheelhouse, creepy with a side of humor. ? ⬇️

Tera66 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I've enjoyed parts of this, now more so since I switched to audio. But I'm kind of disappointed so far. I've heard how great A Little Life is, and emotional. I've only "felt" something in one small part in this one. Its a chunkster, not sure if it's worth it. But it may have an amazing ending ?‍♀️ 3mo

A Sweet Mess

And with this DNF I will no longer be following this series. I loved the first book, A Sweet Mess, but this one just didn't grab me. The "romance" was more about lust and honestly both of them kind of got on my nerves. I found myself putting off picking it up and my goal for this year was to allow myself to DNF when I'm not enjoying a book.

I was not happy with how my reading turned out last year. I hit a big slump. With my Netgalley and Literati subscription I started feeling stressed about reading. So I made two big changes.
1. I did not set a number reading goal, it makes it easier for me to DNF and focus on quality not quantity.
2. I deleted my Netgalley account. I have so many amazing books that I own that I can read.
I'm really looking forward to reading now.

SW-T Awesome! I hope you‘re able to feel less stressed and enjoy your reading more. 😁 4mo
bthegood Change #1 is one I made a while ago too - it really helps when I don't like a book and do not want to finish it - when a book becomes a “chore“ to read I DNF - glad you are less stressed and enjoying reading - (edited) 4mo
Ahw06 I totally get that! I hit a slump around November of last year and just this week started and finished my first read of 2022. Sometimes the pressure becomes too much and we need to take a step back and remember why we started reading in the first place.

#Literati #Audacious
While this is a good sci-fi story it also has much to say about corporations, directly pointing to one that rhymes with Spamazon, corporate greed and how that has consequences for other people in other countries. How these big company‘s power along with support of the government hurts small communities and other small businesses. Also how it can all damage the environment. 👇

Tera66 I found this book pretty good, I am going to give it 3 stars. I think that it needed to be shorter or longer for me. At this length, 211 pages, I was left wanting more of the story and more time for A.O. 's and DNA‘s relationship to evolve. Or it could have been short and sweet like her last novella Remote Control that I loved. 4mo
