Enjoyable book, but not great in my opinion.
So many characters to keep up with, but I can see why this is considered a classic!
The snakes are supposed to be on top of Shadow's head, but he ended that really quick. Lol Happy Halloween!!
What the what?! This was an amazing read, for the most part! Well thought out, but needed at least one more round of editing. The "shower of strings" on the harp took me out of the story briefly. I flew through this in less than 24 hours, staying up way too late to finish it, as it's 3:30 AM...perfect thriller for spooky season if you like psychological novels!
Low pick, but because the first half was bogged down with other cases and back story. In the end, it was really interesting to see how the police were able to get their conviction.
Reading about women serial killers with Shadow keeping guard!
I don't like the writing style and I feel like there is no plot at all. I'm just over halfway through and feel like it's not going anywhere.
My daughter's dog, Shadow, moved in with us this weekend! We are reestablishing boundaries between him & my resident cat Seasons, but so far so good. You may be seeing Shadow from time to time on my posts! #DogsOfLitsy
I absolutely adored every word Nezhukumatathil wrote and want to read more of her work!
Reading a book about cats means I get to share a picture of my furry child, Seasons! #catsoflitsy
I grew up knowing very little about Mother Teresa and went into this book with a very open mind about her. After having read it, I am inspired by her faith and unfaltering loyalty to see Jesus in every person she met.
Now that they've announced publicly, I can share that I'M GONNA BE A GRANDMA! I'm so excited for them and can't wait to meet my grandchild!
Celebrating 11 years of marriage with my favorite person today! He makes life & love easy!
It wasn't until the end that I realized this was an unauthorized biography. There were so many parenthetical statements throughout the book that I found them to be annoying, but I learned a lot about Stevie Nicks and her songs! I wish she would write a memoir.
If you want a short, easy romance, this is your book. I was hoping for something a little more dramatic I think. The passage of time is hard to follow in the beginning, with weeks passing in the space between paragraphs, but it was a sweet little romance that ended all tied up with a bow.
A beautiful story of a female Jewish scribe in the 1600s who grapples with philosophical questions and stops at nothing to find answers. This is a dual timeline book, so it also follows Helen Watt and Aaron Levy, historians, as they uncover letters and documents written by the scribe.
Aubrey Gordon lays out her arguments using scientific research and anecdotal evidence to combat myths about fat people.
Another amazing collection of poems from MHN! I loved the sections on lessons from elephants 🐘 and lessons from honeybees 🐝!
Heavy subject matter; TW for sexual assault/abuse, suicide, and child abuse
Despite the heaviness of the book (both figuratively and literally), I really enjoyed it and looked forward to the way Lamb tied in each of the characters to each other. I looked forward to picking up the book again to continue reading it.
So much chanting of the Eagles fight song, and yelling. It got repetitive, especially the chapter of Pat's movie montage. It was mostly a good story and now I'm going to rewatch the movie to see how it compares to the book.
Covid finally got us. Husband still has to work, just from home. I am looking forward to some down time and reading.
