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!
My second Riley Sager book. I enjoyed it even more then The Last Time I Lied.
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.
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.
This is a tough read, but worth it. I am enraged, disgusted, and heartbroken.
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).
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 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.
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.
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.
#Deweys24HourReadathon #ReverseReadathon starts in 2.5 hours and I‘m ready!
I have no plans to stay up overnight, I value sleep too much, but I do plan on spending most of tomorrow reading as it‘s supposed to be 100° outside tomorrow and I‘m not feeling that temp.
Spent the weekend beachin‘ and what a weekend it was. The weather at Wrightsville Beach did not disappoint. I did read some but mostly enjoyed the family time and the ocean. Hoping to finish up two books today as I get back into the swing of things.
