I was sucked in to this crazy, dark read right from the start. This is a well crafted story with well developed characters and a story line that is full of secrets, lies, and a toxic family dynamic. It was captivating. While I had a sense of where things were going, I certainly didn‘t guess it. I intended to site down and read a few chapters and read more than 200 pages. That says something. I couldn‘t put it down.

September is here, you know what that means?
It's time to read creepy, mysterious and horrifying books. At least, for me. 🧡🍂🍁🧡

I felt like this book was a little long winded in the story telling and started to skim as I was getting to the end. It was just ok for me but kept me curious as to how it would end. If you like a lot of narrative and not much dialogue then maybe this is the book for you.

Finished the first book for my #BFC challenge but it also fit the #nightorientedtitle prompt for #booked2019

Was an easy read with some real intrigue/interesting thoughts. Some of the writing felt clunky - I‘d have to reread sentences before I caught what the author was saying. The truth/reveal definitely didn‘t sit well with me, but I‘m sure that was the point. Held my attention but didn‘t love it

I didn‘t love this book and I didn‘t hate it. It gripped me 80% of the way and I don‘t know if my ADD kicked in or if the storyline was losing me but either way I started rushing towards the finish line and sort or skim read. I will admit the ending had me SHOOK I didn‘t really see that coming 🤯 I think after I dwell on it and think about the whole story I will give it a better rating

Trying to read while suffering like a version of the little guy above (but no way that cute). This book is a fun page turner and I can only manage a few pages at a time. It feels like a woolly mammoth is sitting on my head 🤧 #cootiebuggotme #snotnose

I read this one so fast! I just could not wait to find out what exactly happened to Emma.

Three years ago, Cass and her older sister disappeared in the night. Now Cass is back, but where‘s Emma? And what exactly happened three years ago?

Filled with lots of dysfunctional family drama and narcissism, which I loved. Couldn‘t stop turning pages!

(Note: personal photo from a camping trip - thought this fit the book well.)

So I‘m still on my way home (Texas) from Kentucky.

I have about 8 hours to drive tomorrow so I decided to download an audio book (based on the cover alone).

The cover looks hauntingly beautiful. I‘m going in blind!

1. Teleport for sure!!!
2. My first read of the year was We Were Liars by E. Lockhart and I finished that one and am now currently reading the tagged book. Loving it so far!
3. Read more! Less social media. More walks. Cook more.
4. Just finished Tidelands and YOU and loved them both! So good!! Also, Beverly Hills 90210 on Hulu :)
5. 👍

It is so easy to think we are important and that the things that happen to us are important. But the truth is, we are so small, so insignificant in the scope of even just our solar system, which is itself meaningless in the scope of the Universe. The truth is, nothing really matters unless we decide it matters.

I pictured that witch from The Wizard of Oz when they pour water over her. That was my mother. Only it wasnt water. It was reality.

Read this on a friends‘ recommendation. I wasn‘t sure at first, especially once I realized it was about another mentally ill mother (after I had just finished Baby Teeth). But the story was excellent. You know all along that you aren‘t getting the full story, but I don‘t think I ever would have guessed the ending.

SilversReviews The ending was surprising. 12mo

MelissaSue81 @Kayla.Adriena - I hated both Baby Teeth and Sharp Objects. Sharp objects was just too sick and baby teeth was sad I thought. This one was a little of both, but the mystery was good, and a good twist. 12mo

hermyknee @TheKidUpstairs I‘m really enjoying it so far! I‘m on page 100 and it has kept me engaged, is fast-paced (which I wanted right now!), and I could easily binge read it right now (if I weren‘t so busy grading 😞). It‘s one of those books that I‘m unsure about reading before bed because I won‘t put it down! I plan to spend my Friday night with this one! 1y

It was okay... I was expecting more of a thriller/ horror novel rather than a study of humans. It took forever for the story to pick up.

Well, that was ... confusing as fuck. That‘s really the top line emotion I have. Even after finishing it, I‘m still not totally clear about everything but maybe that‘s by design! I did like the exploration of the particular psychiatric issues (tho I can‘t speak to the authenticity of the rep) and was def a good example of an unreliable narrator. But it was so heavy on telling not showing, and just soooo opaque. Not terrible but not great 3/5 ⭐️
