If this book came in 2nd in a Killercon Gross Out story competition, I don‘t even want to know what came first 😳

Giving this 5 stars because it lived up to the grossness it was advertising, but yuck 🤢

It‘s only 50 cents on Godless if you don‘t have a soft stomach 😂

This one just barely made it a pick. Seriously by like this 🤏🏼 much. I had fun reading it which is what pushed me through it. It was just nonsensical and certain parts were unnecessary. Like the weird sexual attraction to the dad?? Like why was that in there if it didn‘t even go anywhere or serve the plot in anyway.

Good until the ending. Or lack thereof, rather. It didn‘t feel like an ambiguous ending, it felt unfinished which made me regret wasting my time reading it.

While I do agree with the people who say the “twist” was unbelievable, I was able to look past it. That was minor compared to the rest of the book in my opinion. This book captured my attention from the very first page and I blew through it in one day. I adored the strong female characters. This one just blew me away and I had so much fun reading it.

Darling Rose Gold | Stephanie Wrobel

Literally everyone is this book is an unlikable asshole except for the baby and Anna. And while I understand Rose Gold‘s reasoning for wanting revenge, the way she went about it makes her no better than her own mom, if not worse. This was just not enjoyable when you don‘t like any of the people you‘re reading about.

Beautiful cover tho 🤷🏻‍♀️

JamieArc I had a problem with this book because it was way too similar to the true story. It felt like a lack of creativity by the author. 4w
magyklyXdelish @JamieArc I knew going into it that it was inspired by it but yeah it comes off as less inspired by and more like beat for beat (almost). And the parts that were different I hated anyway. I was definitely let down by this one. 4w

This was better than I was expecting. I loved how fast paced this was. At first I wasn‘t sure how I felt about Ashley but she grew on me and by the end I loved her. There were definitely some unrealistic bits that kept it from being a 5 but over all this was enjoyable.

I can appreciate what the author was trying to do. I did like the writing even if some things got a bit repetitive. It‘s just how the villains are just one note and we‘re brutal for the sake of being brutal. Idk it just didn‘t resonate with me like it was supposed to.

Getting Mr. Frank 7 years ago was one of the the best things to happen to our little family. He brought so much love and happiness to our home. This weekend we had to say goodbye and it was awful. It wasn‘t peaceful for him and it was traumatic for us. I‘m just happy they let us spend 3 hours with him after. This hurts and everything sucks 💔

I liked this one a lot, I‘m just not sure how I feel about the ending. Even though I was not rooting for Richard in anyway I don‘t know how I feel about the ending. Idk. Great read though. Also fuck Jenna for using her daughter as a weapon. I totally get her wanting revenge but not at the expense of her daughter. This did shine a light on how parents trauma can trickle down to their kids though.

So to start with, I hated the writing. The constant incomplete sentences were driving me insane! Secondly, I didn‘t like any character besides Nora. And lastly, I didn‘t buy the appeal of David. He was supposed to have these kids wrapped around his finger but I didn‘t buy the charisma.

This has been sitting on my net galley shelf so long that by the time I read it, it was in physical form 😬

To me this was perfection. It blew me away and made me cry. I love when a thriller does that.

Trash trash trash trash trash. I work night audit at a hotel so I thought this would be a fun little book to read at work. No. I hated it. Just a bunch of teens making stupid decisions. Plus usually in books if the main characters aren‘t seeking out help from the police there‘s an obvious reason. But here there literally is not. There‘s no reason for these teens doing what the crazy person was telling them to do. Sooooo STUPID.

Landing solidly in the middle on this one. The majority of the stories would have been so much better if they were shorter. This was an insanely verbose book. Plus I was definitely not a fan of the end it was just meh. My favorite story in here was the magician. Again it could have been shorter but the ending to that story actually gave me chills.

It‘s honestly offensive to me when someone touts a book as the scariest thing ever and it‘s barely even creepy. If it wasn‘t for that I might have felt differently about it but I went in expecting to be scared or at least creeped out. Instead I was bored with how predictable it was.

Yuki_Onna Exactly how I felt. It wasn't bad, just not. scary. at. all. Forgettable. 3mo
magyklyXdelish @Yuki_Onna exactly. Forgettable is a great description for this. Utterly unremarkable. 3mo

A book about monsters and how they can come in all shapes and sizes. I had a lot of fun with this one for #LMPBC - some things I kinda saw coming but I can say for sure I was not expecting that end.

I actually don‘t mind that it wasn‘t very “horror”. I was intrigued by the mystery from the start. A handful of the characters were likable and the rest were insufferable. My main issue is that the end leaves some things unresolved. Pretty big things, in my opinion. I still had fun reading this. The author‘s prose was beautiful.

This will be mailed out Monday afternoon 🤗
