Wow! So steamy! I love the Valkryie storyline! Can't wait until the next in the series gets released.

This was ok, not great. The book starts with a teen finding out her close friend had died. She does not accept the cause of death. That is then the basis of this whole novella- her solving the 'mystery' and dealing with grief.

Starting this next... Does anyone know if this is just the last currently available or is this the end of the series overall? I've read conflicting things about this series.

Meshell1313 I think I read on her website that this series is still ongoing. Some of her other series are finished but not this one. 🤞 3w
Enchanted_Bibliophile If you're done with this one move on the Cresent City series.... 3w
Enchanted_Bibliophile Apparently they merge with this series 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3w

Finished this on #audible. Idk felt kind of meh about it. The romance at the end felt rushed.

This might be my favorite #Bridgertons so far. I might say that after every book though. I think it'll stick this time, Francesca is such a mysterious sibling up until this book. Love this trope though, #ForbiddenLove. #WorkingMyWayThroughTheBridgertons #6 of #8

No where near as good as The Body Keeps The Score but still very good nonetheless. 👌 Not quite the same subject matter but close. If anyone has any recommendations for PTSD, Trauma, or mindfulness books I'm all ears. Thanks. #PTSD #Trauma #mindfulness

EKonrad I thought Oprah‘s new book What Happened to You was really accessible. And she‘s not very well-known but books by Carolyn Spring have been super helpful to me. 😊 5mo

I know this was a good book... but I'm in such a slump lately. I'm pushing through and nothing is standing out to me! I'm in need of recommendations!

Prairiegirl_reading I wish I had a good slump buster for you. 😞 The only thing that worked for me lately was to try not to think about books and watch every single episode of rupaul‘s drag race I could find. I don‘t necessarily recommend that specifically, just saying I empathize. My reading brain just needed a break. 10mo
readordierachel When I'm slumping hard, I usually reread a favorite. It can be comforting to read something I know I'm gonna enjoy 10mo

I just thought this was ok... I'm trying to clean up my "reading" list on goodreads. My library switched ebook/audio book systems a few months ago. I miss our old system. We did use Overdrive. I'm sloooooowly getting used to cloud library. Do any if you use it?

rabbitprincess My hometown library switched to CloudLibrary and I find the interface clunky and the catalogue less well stocked than the old Overdrive catalogue 😕 1y
TravelsWithBooks I use Libby. 1y
kricheal @rabbitprincess is there a way to request books on there. I haven't figured it out yet. I know on Overdrive I could request up to 99 books they didn't have in their catalog a day. 1y
See All 13 Comments
kricheal @TravelsWithBooks I used to be able to switch between Overdrive and Libby with no issue because they were both supported. They reportedly made the switch for "more content"... I'm not a fan. 1y
Myhusbandhatesreading I have both available but still use Overdrive…it‘s just what I‘m used too. I know at some point I am sure our library will switch totally over to Libby too. 😕 1y
Jennaree3 I agree. I thought this book was good, but certainly not great. People raved about it and I was waiting for some great creative work of literary prowess…which, unfortunately, never came 😆 1y
kricheal @Jennaree3 I think the hype made me rate it lower than I would have normally. I felt so let down. 1y
rabbitprincess @kricheal I haven‘t found a way, but I haven‘t looked for one. My hometown library is my « backup » library so I don‘t use it very often. 1y
kricheal @rabbitprincess what do you use if you don't mind me asking? I think I'm going to look elsewhere. 1y
rabbitprincess @kricheal My main library (Ottawa, ON) is an Overdrive/Libby library. 1y
absolutebookish My library did the same a while back & I'm still not happy about it. It glitches a lot: highlights & notes disappear, books close randomly or have trouble downloading, dictionary doesn't always work, app shuts down. 😖 What I do for requests is go to SEARCH, click the FILTERS at the top right, & switch the toggle on for SUGGESTIONS FOR LIBRARY. Then when you search titles your library doesn't have, you can click SUGGEST so your library can get it. 1y
absolutebookish @kricheal You're welcome! ^_^ 1y

This book... what an uncomfortable read! The absolute control and power an abuser can have over one they abused for so many years. What did you all think?

Tera66 I couldn't do it, I kept putting it on my TBR and then taking it off. I finally just decided not to, although people are saying its great. 2y

Thank you to my friend @Dcueto for suggesting this book! This was the first book I was able to finish since my Dad passed away in September. I've tried and picked up so many books and none could hold my interest. If anyone else who hasn't read this yet, please do!
