My second #bookhaul from this weekend

Another great read from Ms. St. James!! This author never disappoints. The multiple mysteries made the wheels in my head turning in this one. This was a fast read for me but only because the storyline was so well-written and I couldn't wait to know what happens at the end.

This book was a mixture of supernatural and mystery. I was a little concerned at first that the supernatural aspect would turn me off to the novel, but I felt it added to the mystery. This book wasn‘t what I was expecting, however it was a very good read! I found it a little slow going at first but it quickly picked up.

Spinning kicked my butt today. My legs felt like jello afterwards. Overall still felt amazing. A good workout is always a good stress reliever.

Two cold case murder mysteries in one. The 1950 story was especially well done. A chilling and hauntingly good read.

I finally tackled this one. I started it before and got a bit scared so I put it aside. I‘m so glad I picked it back up, or more like listened in the daylight on my commute. I thoroughly enjoyed it. 4 🤩🤩🤩🤩.

This was part ghost story, part mystery. I picked it up for the ghost story part of it and found myself enjoying the mystery aspect of it too. I thought it was good. Right up until the very very unrealistic ending (keep in mind, there was an actual ghost in this and yet the most unrealistic part of it was the villain). I was waiting for the villain to start twirling his mustache as he monologued. #ghost #coolcover #mystery

This thriller very successfully pulled me out of the reading rut I‘ve been in lately. It had badass women and it had ghosts, both literal and figurative. It also had coincidences that strained credulity, but that‘s what fiction is for 🙌🧳👻

1. Our townhouse unit is on the far end
2. Yes, it is a great starter home, but I hope to sell in the next few months to buy a single family home
3. Tagged!
4. The morning and evening train commute
5. There is a somewhat new restaurant down the street from our house that we tried tonight. It's an Italian steakhouse and sushi restaurant 😂🤣

It was a mix of both high (waited to borrow from library for ~9 months) and missed expectations for me. I just don‘t think that St. James pulled off the two different storylines well enough — potentially the time gap between them was just too large. I really only liked the past girls. The ending sentiments were nice but came out of no where IMO. And the ghost story on top of everything was just too much! Simplification would have helped

Yes! What a fun read! “The Broken Girls” is like a grown up version of telling a ghost story around the campfire.

A boarding school for girls that (yes, not a secret) is haunted! A journalist is determined to find out just what happened in this school back in the 1950s.

Creepy and haunting. After finishing this book, “Mary Hand...” might be stuck in your head!

Wooo!! Had such a great weekend—learned a lot from the #24in48 I did last year so I definitely had a wider variety of books to read and tried my best to save books for this weekend that I was most interested in reading. Overall finished two audio books, one novel, three graphic novels and am halfway through my last read. Also made it over my personal goal of 20 hours woo!! Hope everyone had as much fun as I did 😊

I‘m having a hard time finding the right words...I truly enjoyed seeing the stories of the past unfold and connect with that of the present. A page-turner, a solid mystery w/paranormal elements and some historical fictionalization.
For me: a win. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We had 6” of snow overnight and it‘s still coming down, so we‘re making the best of the day as we weren‘t able to go to Chicago to The Lightning Thief musical as planned. Younger one has a friend over, oldest is playing D&D with friends, and DH is going to watch football. I‘m curled up under a blanket with a good read. All things considered, not a bad day.

I love it when I lose myself so much in a book that I can both start and finish it in the same day. The Broken Girls is part murder mystery, and part ghost story with a definite Gothic feel. It‘s great! I‘ve enjoyed St. James‘ other novels, but this one is definitely my favourite ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
