So disappointed with Stephen King's copy editors...but I'm really enjoying the book!

A really quick, engrossing read. Would you protect your serial killer sister?

If someone asks you how you are, you are meant to say FINE. You are not meant to say that you cried yourself to sleep last night because you hadn't spoken to another person for two consecutive days. FINE is what you say.

cherinium I found Eleanor to be very relatable in her social awkwardness. 5mo

I have just become the person who reads (a physical book) while they're in a restaurant. And that's cool with me.

"People derive their sense of self-worth from all sorts of places -- that thing you did and that experience you had and that friend who tells you you're not terrible. What happened to me from quite a young age, and certainly as I got older is that my brain decided to use my body as the focal point from which all my value as a person had to be measured..."

I'm generally not a fan of audiobooks (too hard to stay focused), but I don't mind a good celebrity memoir read by the author...and overall, I enjoyed this one.

#maybookflowers Day 1: #maymostanticipated

I generally don't plan out my reading, but I'm determined to finally read Modern Romance! As for the other...well, reading a grief memoir seems particularly appropriate after losing my mother a few weeks ago. With her birthday and Mother's Day coming up this month, May is going to be rough.

Mehso-so

I chose this to fulfill the biography requirement for the #2016ReadHarderChallenge. I actually didn't know much about the Kennedy family, and certainly nothing about Rosemary, so I was intrigued.

Lots of interesting information in this one... unfortunately, it was very dry. Considering the subject matter, I would have thought it could have elicited a stronger emotional connection, but it fell short.
