Seems like a lot of people feel the same way about this book as I do-it was okay, but not great. The twist ending was surprising but felt forced and didn‘t make a lot of sense in context with the rest of the book. Loved The Last Mrs. Parrish though.

This book is not in the typical genre I am usually drawn to, but it left me with all the feels, though luckily the sadness is mostly negated by finding out there is a sequel coming out.

I cannot get enough of this series, it is so good! I‘m so sad I‘m on the last one. My library system didn‘t have a copy, and even the inter library loan system couldn‘t help, so I just had to go and buy it on my kindle, because I couldn‘t wait to read it!

A case of the grumpy Mondays plus a Starbucks reward equals the most expensive ridiculously indulgent drink I could find.
I‘m going to keep going with this book-I don‘t love it, but I like it, and it fits one of the categories for the Popsugar Reading Challenge.

Reviewsbylola Starbucks rewards are good for that. 10mo

Book confession time: I put this book down last time I tried it, but I want to give it one more try because I‘ve heard so much about it.

TheLudicReader I think it‘s worth the read....although I do have caveats. 😀 10mo

A hectic day yesterday (big fundraiser at school that was really fun but super high energy; having to get my blood drawn to run a lot of tests to try to figure out what‘s been going on with me medically) means I am taking today easy with a snuggly dog, an intriguing book, and a matcha latte 😊
