Finished finally. I am still not the biggest Stephen King fan and this had its moments that made me annoyed but it was still good. Recommend if you like horror.

Really liked this book. Was fun and funny and once again had a character i could relate too. And the love interest was even decent. Can't wait to read the sequel

Truly Devious: A Mystery | Maureen Johnson
Pickpick

I have never related to a main character so much in my life. Stevie was funny and flawed and loveable and unlikable. She was a real person and she makes this book so good. The mystery is solid and fun to guess about and I'm excited to see whats next. Only downside is the love interest and his story is eh and predictable

Mehso-so

This isnt Marie Lu's fault. Shes a good writer but lets be honest...BRUCE WAYNE IS BORING. Batman is interesting, his villains are interesting Bruce Wayne himself? Eh...So the book was alright, well-written, I just couldn't get into it because of Bruce.

One Of Us Is Lying | Karen McManus

I had 4 theories and 1 of them was right. This book was a good thriller and i read it in one day. 100% worth it, all the characters were believable and flawed in good ways. The secrets were a bit obvious but that was not a bad thing.

This was so fun. A little out there with the tech explanations (but i work in tech so I have an unfair opinion) and predictable but in a good way. It was fun and I can't wait to read the sequel!

Question time...is it bad to like everything? I was told it was not good to just enjoy art (movies, books, music, etc) and that I needed to be more critical. And im just wondering why?

ladym30 No, it is not bad. You are lucky and know what makes you happy!❤️ 5mo

Wonder Woman: Warbringer | Leigh Bardugo
Pickpick

Great story for Wonder Woman fans. The fact that there was diversity and plenty of 'girl power' it was also great at showing how not only those with super strength could be heroes and also how to harness anger for good. Loved the way the lore was built and how this was a unique take on the myth of Themyscria and the Amazons themselves.

So good and I really liked to historical facts in the back to explain fact vs fiction. Unlikable main character who turns into a likeable person.

This book was wonderful. So true to life about mental illness and how it can isolate you without you having much control but also how getting help can make you better, not heal you, but make you better. Warning though I found myself disassociating a little bit while reading due to my own mental illness so please have care if this is an issue for you

mandi1082 This was a great book! 5mo

I love the Lunar Chronicles and this is a great addition. I also love how its not completely a story that makes you see the character in a better light it only helps you understand them better

This book was so sweet and pure and charming. It was like watching Great British Bake Off but about old books. Highly recommend to anyone who loves 'letter books' and needs something charming to read. Its only 100 pages so its quick and a nice pick me up.

Hello all! I thought it would be fun to have #SundayFunday and wanted to see if anyone else wants to chat.

Question 1: Favorite genre and why?
Question 2: A character you'd love to meet?
Question 3: Favorite TV show at this moment?

My answers:

1 - YA sci-fi because I love a good 'finds their way in the world' story in space
2 - Fred Weasley or Odd Thomas
3 - Buzzfeed Unsolved and Queer Eye

Started this at 10:07PM finished at 11:02PM. This is something you have to read all the way through and it hits hard. I want to hear theories about the ending because it is a gut punch. So amazing.

Career of Evil | Robert Galbraith

I love these books I really do. I love Strike and Robin and I hate Matthew. However, still tired of a specific trauma in every f-in piece of fiction involving women. Please find something else.

led567 Oh I agree. Haven‘t read this yet but know what you mean as hinted at in previous books. 9mo

So good. I love the world building Jaster does with these books. They seem real and plausible. Wonderful and terrible. The plot is heavy on the romance which i like and the prose is magical sometimes.

Bird Box: A Novel | Josh Malerman

20 minutes into Bird Box on Netflix and my annoyance is through the roof. Normally I'm not annoyed at all by movie adaptations of but this is really grinding on me and reminds me a lot of when I watched Tim Burton's Miss Peregrines because nothing annoys me more than taking the original work and then just changing everything about it until its unrecognizable. Like be honest or at least if you're going to change it a lot make them good changes

It took awhile to finish due to the holidays but this was an amazing read and really helps you understand what some transgender people grow up dealing with and can be helpful for those trying to learn more to understand a trans friend or family member's struggle. Highly recommend.

As a good Catholic I can attest to this being 100% accurate. I also can attest that all religions are valid because if believing in one or multiple gods makes you want to be a decent loving person it is valid. Be good and do good to yourself and others and have a laugh about it every once in awhile.

The Trouble with Destiny | Lauren Morrill

This was ADORABLE! And any self-respecting band geek will relate hard to Liza and her love of band. Also the love triangle is a little trite but it didn't take away from the story. I loved this novel so much!
