This is actually my very FIRST #StephenKing #novel. I mean I‘ve seen the movies but never in my 30...(mumble mumble) years have I ever read/purchased one and I‘m even more surprised no one just handed me one and said “Here, just read this.” #BookVirgin #Litsy 📚📚📚

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a slow burn and then I felt it was rushed at the end. It was my first John Connolly book so maybe that‘s his writing style. This was a fascinating story line and I would #recommend it if you have the patience to follow two parallel story until they intersect. #litsy

“A hurt bird always returns to its nest, a hurting woman is no different.”

This #book is something else. #litsy #boty

“The key to staying lost was to never love anything. Time and time again, Early was amazed by what a running man came back for. Women mostly. In Jackson, he‘d caught a man wanted for attempted murder because he‘d circled back around for his wife. You could find a new woman anywhere, but then again, THE MOST VIOLENT MEN WERE ALWAYS THE MOST SENTIMENTAL. Pure emotion, anyway you look at it.”

My #BOTM box got here and I shelved The Book of Longings until I am ready to hear what it has to say. I picked one a #BOTM and #BOTY as my add on. So I‘m starting with The Vanishing Half, I‘m interested to see it‘s merits. I promise I‘ll #review these lmao 😂 #litsy #bookhaul

Sorry guys, I know I‘ve been MIA and I owe you some #reviews but life has been crazy since the holidays and I‘m getting my #books and #audiobooks in where I can. I do have quite a few to #review and still more to read. Especially since my #BOTM #bookhaul is on its way 😬😬😬 My excuse? Work, miles, and podcasts! I‘ll do better...seriously #litsy.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ It was ok. It was slow and the twist was kind of expected but still a #pageturner at the end.

⭐️ As much as it pains me to say this, and as much as I LOVE #Frida...I hated this book. It read like one long magazine article and the random quotes seemed to interrupt the flow of the book. Though it did have its informative moments it also often repeated itself and it felt like page-filler in certain areas. #notrecommended #litsy

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was quirky and seemed to follow the #romcom formula. Nonetheless, it was a good book and a lite read that I #highlyrecommend if you have a soft spot for that kind of thing. It really is worth the read and the characters are heartwarming. #litsy #romance

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For the content of this book it was beautifully written. It weaves the good, the bad, and the ugly altogether in a storybook narrative. It touches on nightmares without giving them to you. I would #highlyrecommend the book. I will say the ending seemed a bit to storybook but it was still a good read #litsy #fiction #holocaust

Wife of the Gods: A Novel | Kwei J. Quartey

⭐️⭐️⭐️ While like other reviewers mentioned it followed a pattern but it was hard not to like Darko. Some of the information I almost felt expected to know and some of the characters I felt weren‘t necessary like his wife, son, and mother-in-law. I would #recommend it if you have an open mind. Also the title is a bit misleading. #litsy #mystery

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the characters and the story was both hilarious and heartbreaking. The ending was a little funny and left open so maybe a part 2? It did seem more #scifi I will say that. #litsy #recommended #audiobook

I think I #love this book so much bc I am a #southerngirl and a Mama of five and I love to read. I‘ve never laughed so damn hard at an #audiobook in such a long time. This was a good choice for me especially since I needed a #scifi break. I think Kitty is my favorite which coincidentally she also has five kids and a husband who leaves car parts everywhere 😂😂😂😂

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can see where readers began to dislike Paul but I understood that it was the way it had to be. This book is very political and there‘s a bit of red tape to follow but I look forward to the next one. #dune #scifi #litsy #recommend

BehindthePages I always want to try Dune, then back away due to the politics. 2y
jouleian @BehindthePages it‘s more about the architecture of politics and how they fall apart rather than political views. Kind of like seeing HOW the gears and cogs work together and not so much WHY. It‘s fascinating actually. 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was beautiful. I got it as an audiobook but I do think it added to it. I have all intentions of buying a hardback Bc it‘s one of my favorites of all time. I love that it wasn‘t a romance and and overall peace among beings was the happy ever after. #scifi #highlyrecommend #litsy #audiobook ❤️❤️❤️

Bette It took a L O N G time for me to get into it, but once that happened I understood why readers (who loved it) loved it. Looking forward to the sequel. Good luck! 👍😊 2y
jouleian @Bette I have it as an audiobook will that help any? I know with some books it‘s better to hear them. 2y
Bette Don‘t know. It‘s just she kind of starts with background but the reader is unaware of what it means. I just thought it was quite a while before it clicked...but by that time all the threads just flow together and it‘s great cuz you get it. Probably not clear explaining. I just want you to hold out ... it‘s worth it. 😊👍 2y
jouleian @Bette oh no, I understand. I‘m in a couple of minutes and it makes no sense at this moment. Lol but it is good to hear that eventually it‘ll all come together 😂😂😂 2y
