Third times the charm. Finally not annoyed with the male main character. Like the direction the series is going and can‘t wait to see what‘s next!

I haven‘t picked up this book in 19 days, mostly because I‘ve been so busy and tired. Hoping I can jump back in smoothly.

I really enjoyed how Lizzie and Rake flounder their way through their relationship, pregnancy, Lizzie‘s uncontrolled ADHD and her family. I do not have ADHD, but I felt like Eddings put that imagine into my head extremely well and I could get the chaos that is Lizzie‘s life.

Right now I want to punch Dev in his face. He is so unlikeable right now I‘m not sure he can redeem himself.

Maybe ask if she‘s ready for it?

Cute, fun and the audio narrator was FANTASTIC. It‘s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. It‘s the second in a series with Disney, and I felt this one had a lot more references to the movie than If the Shoe Fits did, but I‘ve also probably seen Beauty and the Beast a lot more so perhaps I didn‘t recognize them.

Highly recommend this contemporary romance that doesn‘t have any serial killers, by references a lot of true crime.

I knew this would be a tough read, but I underestimated how tough. I am ENRAGED. Unless it is particularly gruesome I can handle the murders and killers in those true crime books. I can even handle it when the result isn‘t what i wanted. But at only 30% in I am already livid over how things have happened (and how society treats rape victims in general).

Jas16 I had the same reaction to this one. It was an infuriating read. 2mo
Kimberlone I‘ve read most of Krakauer‘s books but I‘ve been holding off on this one for those exact reasons 2mo

Idk if it‘s me or the audio narrator but this is the second book in the series and both male main characters irritated the crap out of me when they narrated. This definitely impacted my rating as I hated being in this dudes head.

Breathless was an excellent thriller that set high on a mountain. The mountain climbing stuff was really interesting, I leaned quite a bit (including that mountain climbing is not for me lol).

Overall I‘m giving it a pick, but it‘s a weak one. Pluses: plus size heroine, both main characters are average joes, no angst. Cons: the over the top ending.

Not part of my rating but I listened to the audiobook and I spent most of it confused as to why the love interest (Martin) and her ex had the same name. Wasn‘t until the end that I realized it sound a bit different and slowed it down to .75 and heard Barten (sp?). 😂😂😂

I Am Not a Wolf | Dan Sheehan

I really enjoyed this choose your own adventure! I did the audio, which was easy as you could select chapters for your choices. I don‘t think I hit all the chapters, but I did get to the end. The narration is fantastic and some of the things said about corporate America and humans were spot on.

I know I‘m a day late, but oh well.

1. LONG CHAPTERS. There is nothing more irritating to me that chapters that are 15, 20, etc pages long. I like to stop at a chapter break. Don‘t be an asshole, stick to 10ish pages please. (I once started a book that was around 300 pages and only had 3 chapters.)

2. I‘m not really a collector in that way, but it‘d be nice to finish my Trixie Beldon collection.

@TheSpineView #Two4Tuesday

5feet.of.fury Long chapters! I agree! I‘m reading an Anne Rice right now and the chapters are 30+ pages (chapter 2 was almost 50 pages of very small typing 🤣) So I‘ll be reading for a *significant* amount of time and not even get to a chapter break. My need for instant gratification is unfulfilled 2mo
MidnightBookGirl I hate long chapters too- although thankfully I read a lot of audiobooks and I personally am okay stopping wherever. I read Girl A purposely in hardback because it was my BotM, and each chapter (there were only 7 I think) got longer and longer. If the chapters are short, I'll spend more time reading. 2mo
TheSpineView Never too late. Thanks for playing! 2mo
melissajayne I don‘t like long chapters either; usually most have some sort of small break. 2mo

I'm So (Not) Over You | Kosoko Jackson

This is between a pick and so-so.

Overall it was enjoyable however I didn‘t like how the ending went down and while it‘s an adult book that features almost mid-twenties protagonists sometimes it felt very immature.

I did like both Kian and Hudson and I‘m also hear for a fake relationship.

One Who Loves You | Pippa Grant

Pickpick

This turned out to be much more serious than the cover suggests, but I was here for it. Phoebe is a rich girl who ends up in Tickled Pink because her grandma wants everyone to become “good”. She goes through so much change in the book and you can really feel her becoming a better person. Teague also has some stuff going on, but that doesn‘t really play out until later.

This one had me shedding a few tears. Loved it up until about 88%, then there was a thing that I didn‘t really need added - there was enough angst and heartbreak already with the parents of two young kids dying and Rip and Colby taking over raising them.

Bet on It is a cute romance that also deals with mental health issues, specifically anxiety and PTSD. I though the mental health parts were well done and normalized.
