You all told me this book was fantastic.... and good lord you were right! I LOVED this book, it was wonderfully spooky and so much better than the movie. Reminded me why I love King so much.

Lazy_Day_Reads I read a few months back and feel the same way haha book was great! 6d
bridge12 @Lazy_Day_Reads I‘m honestly so confused why it took me so long to read 5d

Shocker, I‘m on another flight. However, this one is to Portland so a significantly longer flight. I‘m hoping to make a huge dent in this, specifically because it‘s almost due back at the library! 😱

I‘ve been working and traveling a ton. So the fact I came home from Denver (at 2am 🤦🏼‍♀️) to my library hold finally coming through made me actually squeal with excitement! Looking forward to this spoooooky read! 👻

I‘ve loved this series so far but this book was not as entertaining as the other two. It really focused on the romantic relationships and that‘s not my favorite part of these books so far. Hoping the next few are better!

*Apologize for the sub par picture, was taken on the way to dropping this off before hoping on a plane*

This was a sloooow build for me, it was a quick read (thankfully) but most boring until the finale. Which was excellent, I LOVED how the book ended. Just wish more from the rest of the book. #KillingEve

So I‘ve had a supremely crappy morning.... after leaving my hotel at 4:00 am, had issues with mass transit, I got to my flight 10 minutes before it was suppose to leave and they gave my seat away. So now I‘m on standby for the next 6 hours, at least... ☹️

I plan on finishing this while I‘m here to try and make it better #KillingEve

Shadows of Self | Brandon Sanderson

I love Brandon Sanderson and the Mistborn series is every reason why. He does a wonderful job of world building and sinking the reader right in. I listened to this and the narrator is excellent!

I‘m on a roll finishing up my back log this week thanks to #24in48 last weekend.

It was either through Litsy or somewhere else that this was advertised as the Harry Potter for adults. While it‘s more YA than adult and comparing it to Harry Potter is a disservice to HP. However, I loved it and will continue reading the series, because I certainly need more series to start 🤦🏼‍♀️. The magical world that Forrest has built is fantastic and I finished this in a couple of days. Highly recommend!

Alright, I‘m fading fast. So this‘ll probably be my last post for #24in48. Was short by about 10 hours but I‘ll take it! I adored my first #readathon and it was everything I needed to recharge for work tomorrow. Thank you @24in48 for putting this on it was great!

It feels impossible for Brandon Sanderson to write a bad fantasy novel. This is another wonderful read by him. The plot, characters, and world building are spot on. It is based 300 years after the original Mistborn trilogy and it is fantastic! ❤️

Haven‘t been able to read much because of my new job but so happy I had a drive to St. Louis to fit this one in!

This was like a a nice, long, and much needed hug from a best friend. I was expecting more murder but it was a look into their lives. It was open and vulnerable and I love Karen and Georgia for their ability to wear their hearts on their sleeves. It was also hilarious, the “move away from me now, move away from me now” made me laugh so hard I had to put the book down for a bit. Highly recommend if you‘re a fan of the podcast! #SSDGM #Murderino

This is one of those rare instances where the show surpasses the book. This book was just pretty alright but it didn‘t give the characters the depth or humor that they have in the show. Quick read and I didn‘t hate it, was just wanting more! #KillingEve 🔪

This was such an excellent read. I was hooked from the very beginning and am shocked any of those children survived into adulthood. Living with a narcissist with bipolar struck a real chord with me. Wonderful first novel can‘t wait to see what else she comes out with!

Hidden Bodies | Caroline Kepnes

I really enjoyed reading You, Hidden Bodies... not so much. You was dark and twisted. Hidden Bodies felt like a ton of incomplete thoughts rolled into a book that was far too long, and rather boring. I didn‘t love the end and thought it could have ended better in so many different places. I don‘t recommend this one

I am so angry with myself that I had yet to read this book because I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! This was great and the humor was similar to The Hitchhiker‘s Guide to the Galaxy. If you haven‘t read this, I promise you won‘t be disappointed!

Rounding out #BlackHistoryMonth with Americanah and this book was lovely. It shows the trials and tribulations of the life of a Nigerian couple who separately immigrate to America and London.

I did not realize this was the first of a series until I finished it. Thank Tomi it is, because I have SO many questions and absolutely LOVED this book! The world and character building were magnificent. I cried and had the sweatiest palms at the end. Highly recommend.

Also, super happy I waited to read this now so I don‘t have to wait as long for the next book!

I overall enjoyed this book. It was funny, sweet, and incredibly well written. Specifically the author‘s descriptions of different locations, they were never stereotypical and I loved it. However, Less‘s crippling self doubt was grating and made my enjoyment of the book dwindle.
