😑😑😑 I should‘ve bailed. This was a book that I wanted to go in completely blind and I guess that wouldn‘t have helped regardless. The multiple timelines and characters were all too much for my brain to handle. This is a book you‘ll love or you‘ll hate. For me, it was the latter.

I‘m not really understanding what is going on in this, but I‘m going to finish this because the narration is really good. I hope his previous book is easier to follow.

kelli7990 I‘m reading The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. The genre is nonfiction. I‘m enjoying it. It‘s interesting but sometimes, it‘s hard for me to understand what is being talked about in this book. It talked about synergy before and I don‘t know what that word means. I‘ve never heard it before. 4w

Near the Bone | Christina Henry

After reading other people‘s reviews of this and reflecting back on the story, I‘m now disappointed that this wasn‘t as good as it could‘ve been. In the beginning, I was totally invested in the “monster in the woods” part of the story, but as it went along, all we got were: Mattie‘s internal dialogue; an abusive father trying to make his daughter his wife; William (the father) trying to protect Mattie; Mattie coming across some strangers, who ⬇️

TheRiehlDeal then (along with Mattie) try to get revenge on William once they find what he‘s doing to her; flashbacks; and an ending that didn‘t really resolve anything.

Already an hour and a half into this, and I can tell I‘m going to need a lighter book after I‘m done with this. This is now the second book in a row that the husband is treating the wife like crap. 😩😡

So far, this is a creepy book of a couple trying to survive winter in the mountain, but something is lurking nearby.

Mehso-so

I‘m not sure what I feel about this one. There are parts I liked and parts I didn‘t like. I was rooting for Rose to get away from her abusive husband, Norman, and to get revenge for the pain he caused her. What I didn‘t care for was the supernatural aspect of the painting Rose receives. Also, there was a lot of profanity in this. Otherwise, this was an OK Stephen King book.

This was my first SK novel I read, so where does this rank?

Bailedbailed

Well… just as I said it was good, it turns out I don‘t care for this anymore. To me, the whole short string and long string spiel is kind of cheesy and cringeworthy. Plus, the writing is meh. Lastly, one thing that was bugging me, was that on almost every page, there was at least one word that was italicized and it got really annoying. If I knew I wasn‘t going to like this I wouldn‘t have paid full price for this. Definitely a #BorrownotBuy.

TheRiehlDeal 😬😬 50%?! Who knew a bail rating could be so destructive to a Pick rating. I know it‘s still early, but I hate to be the one that didn‘t like a book, while others enjoyed it. 2mo
