I have so many conflicting emotions about this novel. I over-hyped it in my head and it wasn't as creepy as I expected. I feel kind of bad for Hanna in a way. I also think it desperately needs an epilouge at the end, and I'm actually frustrated that there isn't one. Overall a pick for me! Also I read this all in one day. My eyes are tired.

"It's a love letter to Wayra, to the jungle, and to the place and the people that changed my life."

This is such an amazing memoir!

The 4th installment of the Anchor Island series is just as good as the first 3, if you like cozy romance novels!

Heavy subject matter, but it needs to be talked about more. This is the second book I've read about the Dozier School & I'm still mad about how these boys were treated.

I wanted to like this book, I really did. The editing was AWFUL and the plot predictable. I'm not sure if I'll continue on to book 2...

Clare-Dragonfly If you hated this one so much why even consider reading book 2?! 3w

I started following the duo on Instagram after I saw the video from the Dodo, & I loved them instantly! I loved getting to read more of Dean & Nala's story. 😻😻😻

Readergrrl Me too!! Loved the original video and started following years ago now. What an interesting duo!!! 4w
WorldsOkayestStepMom @Readergrrl for sure! I love how much Dean & Nala love each other and I hope he comes out with a second book when he finishes traveling the globe. 4w
Readergrrl I‘ve loved his posts with his family too! But, yes, it‘s wild how he meets new people and they just welcome him into their homes! What a way to travel! 4w

Still working through the tagged book, but tried to buy new Kindle content through Amazon's app and got this message. 😡

Clare-Dragonfly You can‘t buy Kindle content through the Amazon app on iOS either 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4w
WorldsOkayestStepMom @Clare-Dragonfly I wonder why though? I bought all my Kindle content through the app until today. 4w
Clare-Dragonfly I think it‘s because the platforms charge fees to sell through apps? But if you can buy regular stuff… maybe it‘s just digital content? Books specifically, since Google and Apple have their own ebook stores? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🙄 4w
WorldsOkayestStepMom @Clare-Dragonfly I can buy other items through the app, just not digital content. Idk. It's weird. I'll just buy Kindle content through my Kindle now I guess rather than my phone. 4w

From The Oklahoman, a partial list of books that are banned or could be banned in the state of OK. And also they got Harper Lee's name wrong. Sometimes, I hate it here.

ravenlee Well, that might be the first time a Twilight book, The Hiding Place, and Lord of the Flies all end up on the same list. (edited) 1mo

Took me a while to get into this book, but the second half was amazing! I flew through the last third of the book in one sitting. I liked the story and loved Eva and Shane. Audre got on my nerves a tiny bit, but pulled it out in the end. I especially love that invisible illnesses got some publicity with this novel as I live with them too.

Was at an outdoor wedding this afternoon and almost had to call an ambulance for me. 🙃 I'm better now that I've cooled off and drank lots of water. Now I'm resting in our hotel room and reading the tagged book!

I like that this book is based on real people and events, but I felt like there was not a climax to the plot. It was predictable to me. Having said that, I want to be like Libertas.

I know very little about chess, but this book was so engrossing for me! I read half of it in one sitting (staying up way too late to do so). The edition I have needs an editor, and that was a bit distracting. Overall, the book makes me want to watch the Netflix series just to keep going.
