😖😫 I REALLY wanted to like this book, but unfortunately I just can not get into it. The Swedish names are hard to pronounce, even if I try my best to skip over the pronunciation. Maybe if I listened to this on audio, then I could get through it, but for right now, I'm going to put this book/series off for awhile.
I kind of have mixed feelings about this. Parts of the book lost my interest, while other parts kept me reading until the end. This was a depressing book to say the least. Flynn couldn't have wrote these characters any better!
Will have to give Sharp Objects a read, eventually!
Any thoughts on the ending of this book?
I enjoyed reading the little short stories of people and their habits. The book also explained why we do what we do, and the scientific evidence to back it up.
Started this a couple days ago. Pretty interesting so far.
This book kept my interest throughout, but it definitely wasn't the best book I've read. Mainly, Cass being a bit too paranoid for the average person when she is constantly thinking the murderer is making the silent calls. Plus, she seemed to be taking Jane's murder a little seriously. I'm sure I wouldn't be an emotional wreck if I met someone only once and they got murdered shortly after. All in all, this was an enjoyable read.
This book was full of emotions. Eye opening what addiction does to a family.
Currently reading. Synopsis sounds interesting.
Overall, I liked this book. I thought it was neat for the author to write in the perspective of an autistic teenager; even if the writing felt a bit childish. I didn't expect the plot twist half-way through. And I do feel the ending could of been a bit better. It kind of just happened.
My current read. I'm enjoying it so far.
I thought this book was alright. I was really invested in it the first half of the book. But, by around the end, it kind of fell through on me a little bit. I really liked the first half and parts of the second; especially when Jack was a full-time dad and he finds out that his wife, Julia, might be having an affair. Towards the end I was starting to lose interest, but I wanted to finish the book regardless. Not sure if any of you feel the same.

Finished this this morning. Pretty terrifying what Ebola can do to you. The author gives real-hand accounts of those who have contracted the virus, and those who have bravely fought to eradicate it.
Believe it not, this was a Christmas gift from my parents a few years ago. So better late then never.
1. I've discovered quite a few books at my job. I work at a non-for-profit organization that accepts donations, and people have donated books by the likes of James Patterson and Stephen King.
2. No, not yet.
4. I started IT about three years ago and still have yet to finish it.
I'm curious if any of you get this message while browsing through books on Libby. It's been doing this for quite awhile. I'm on Android, not sure if this is a problem on IOS. I don't get this message on OverDrive. This is really frustrating because I really like Libby. 👿
Update: I restarted my phone and now it is running smooth.
The synopsis had so much potential, but I feel it did not quite deliver. The beginning had me hooked. It started with Philip Tonka, a former WW2 veteran having almost every bone in his body fractured (of varying degrees) by a sound in Africa that is supposed to only make you sick.
After that though, it kind of started to fall. What had me going was seeing how Philip would progress with such a crippling injury. By the end, I had no clue...
Had high hopes for this after reading Bird Box, but I will say, it was decent. The book focuses on two seventeen-year-old's who find (as the name of the book says), a house at the bottom of a lake, while canoeing.
The book is quite short, under 120 pages, so definitely a book you could read in a day. I'd say the thing that kept me reading was to find out what mysterious things would happen with the house.
I finished this about a couple months ago, but forgot to put a review on here.
I really liked how the author made you feel the stresses of being a caretaker and the effects it can have on you mentally. As that is the case with the story's main protagonist, Sophie Howland, whom has to take care of her elderly (Mum). It is revealed early in the book that Sophie's mom has early onset Alzheimer's. Sophie also has to deal with her mom's... (cont.) 👇
Hope all of you had a fantastic day today! I just wanted to share with you what I got for Christmas. Pretty much all non-fiction books except for Bird Box (saw the movie by the way). I also got a CD for a band that I listen to and a Regal movie gift card.
My family and I had a laid back day today. Didn't do much, other than seeing my Grandma. Anyways, have a great rest of your day everyone! 😊 Merry Christmas! 🎅🎄🎁
Currently reading this. It's pretty good so far! I liked that the build-up to Eleanor getting to Hill House wasn't rushed. Can't to watch the show! 📺
Didn't really care too much for this book. Felt like I was reading this just to finish it. The only good thing I can probably take from this book is the writing. I'll have to wait and see if Cash's other book, The Last Ballad, lives up to my expectations.
1. I haven't read funny books yet, but both of Jenny Lawson's books-- Let's Pretend This Never Happened, and Furiously Happy-- seem pretty funny.
2. Anything from NeedToBreathe.
3. My bed.
4. My twin brother.
5. When someone holds a door open for me.
1. The movie was different than the book, as is the case with all book-to-screen adaptions.
3. No, but I wish. Maybe I will later this month.
4. Never. If my family and I do, then it's for a birthday.
5. Worst: Having to do my co-workers work for one of my jobs, cause some of them still can't follow directions/rules. Best: Can't think of anything.
