Mehso-so

This was a big meh for me. Predictable and somehow slow seeming and too much going on. I almost bailed but kept thinking it would get better. It didn‘t for me.

Lizpixie I enjoyed it as a light but still on theme read for me. Maybe it‘s because I listened to the audiobook, the narrator was really good.🎧 2mo

Bk1 of my #Scareathlon is finished. I‘ve always blown off Nora Roberts thinking she was mostly a romance writer, but after receiving Under Currents in a giveaway, I was pleasantly surprised. This was another good one, a very easy listen & perfect for some #audiopuzzling It has its flaws but overall I very much enjoyed it, the characters are delightful mostly & the killer is nuts. That‘s 3points for #TeamSlaughter

I‘ve been #audiojournaling for the start of the #Scareathlon I‘m halfway through Ch19 in this thriller by Nora Roberts. 16yr old Simone & her friends & 17yr old Reed are caught up in a mass shooting at the mall in their town in Maine. Years later, with Reed now a cop & Simone working out her grief & trauma in sculpture, the sister of the lead shooter starts killing the survivors one by one. #TeamSlaughter PS..does this count as 1 point?

Added over 2 1/2hrs of audiobook to my total & was able to rest my eyes a little bit(with the help of some Visine👁👁)Switching back to a print book, it‘s a bit hard to choose though, so many of my #TBR books I‘m saving for the #Scarathlon & the rest are hefty SciFi or fantasy which I don‘t want to begin this close to the 1st! Decisions, decisions🤔 #24B4Monday #readathon

Seeing as my eyes are so red I look like I‘m possessed....or drunk, I‘m switching to an audiobook for awhile. I really enjoyed Under Currents by this author so I thought I‘d give another of her crime/romance novels a try. I didn‘t realise she is so prolific, and in so many genres as well. This one, full romance, fantasy, paranormal & dystopian, she does them all. #24B4Monday #readathon

Whew, that was much more intense than the average Nora Roberts book! The romantic plot doesn't come into play until nearly halfway through and there isn't much of a mystery because you're told exactly who the bad guy is early on - but that doesn't make it any less sinister. The mass shooting storyline is a bit too real, but I definitely recommend!

The very first Nora Roberts book I attempted to read was when I was in high school. My mom told me that I wasn't allowed to finish it and since then, I've had a weird aversion to Roberts's writing. I felt guilty for wanting to read it. I've been an adult for 10 years now and I started this book last night. I had such a strong emotional response to the content of the first few chapters and I haven't been able to put it down since except to sleep.

My GoT inspired shawl (pattern is Find Your Fade). I have made a big boo boo somewhere. Going to have to consult the yarn doctors (knitters in my group with 50+ years of knitting) to see if it can be fixed.
Colors you see from left to right: Poseidon's Wrath (ok not GoT but the sea is very important in the series), Arya, The Hound, and Tormund.

Really liked this! I got an email from a bookstore I shop at, with a chapter to read and a competition to guess the author. That chapter had me hooked and I bought the book as soon as it came out. Then I had a baby and got too tired to read at night 🤦🏻‍♀️ I put the book aside but found myself thinking of the characters and events quite often. When I got some sleep under my belt I picked the book up again and finished it. A great read!

I‘ve been reading a lot lately (can you say escapism? 😉), But haven‘t given myself time to post. Trying to catch up today.

I rarely read Nora Roberts, but did enjoy this one. Initially, I was thinking it was going to be similar to 19 Minutes, but ended up being much different. I don‘t want to give too much away, but I loved CiCi, Reed and Simone. Great characters.

A wonderful story, though also sad during current events, about a mass shooting at a mall and how it impacted the lives of certain survivors. I really loved the characters, CiCi, Reed, Simone. I loved how they shaped their lives. And I enjoyed the overall story. And it had some beautiful pages inside, like the inside cover above. Just wish I could get that Target sticker to come off the cover!

I have not been on Litsy in DAYS! I have had crazy training for this new job, and in groups, having to talk in front of groups. And it sucks for an intovert like me. So when I get home, I just want to shut myself away and not communicate at all. 😕 But I started this book this weekend and am enjoying it. Also, this pup is making a mess on my bed with a new bone I got her tonight after work.... 🙄🐶🤷‍♀️

Hope to catch up soon with everyone! 🙋‍♀️

Target haul. The Target I went to (not one I regularly go to) had a huge book section and I wanted to get so many. But this hardback NR was only $12 and this last In Death book is the latest one I haven't read yet. So these two jumped in my cart. I'll have to check out that Target's book section more often.

Nora Roberts Shelter in Place is a must read if you haven‘t already. The book is divided into three parts that deal with a touchy subject of a mass shooting in the mall. The story pulls you in right away and keeps you wanting to read. There are some drawn out parts near the end that I thought could have been left out and still made it a good book and the ending seemed to happen to quickly. Overall a good book.

Meh.. I finished it and I adored Barney the dog but the plot just was not believable also some of the dialogue was over the top. I felt the same way about Come Sundown. I just don‘t get why so many readers love her so that‘s it for me for Nora Roberts. #UnpopularOpinion. Oddly enough I love her J D Robb “In Death” series so I will continue to enjoy Roark and Eve‘s romantic but thrilling tales of murder and mayhem. 🤷‍♀️

Cold hearted or what?! This girl is full of sick twisted revenge. A straight up psychopath for sure! No spoilers here as Ms Roberts reveals who the dastardly villains and villainess are very early on 🤓 and I‘m not sure why yet as it certainly removes the mystery part of the plot super quick! 🤷‍♀️😳

Romantic suspense involving one of the grim realities of contemporary United States life—mass shootings. The main protagonists survive the trauma that takes the lives of friends as teens and when they meet as adults, they‘re in the crosshairs of the serial killer who set up the original shooting #romantsy

One page and then the next until your so engrossed, you‘re too tired to work the next morning! And this one was good. I loved the characters, particularly CiCi! If she‘s free to come be my grandmother, I would let her. But I never really connected with them on a level of hugging the book and wishing for more. There is light in tragedy, and good writing, so I‘m thankful to my local library for providing an e-copy of this light, enjoyable read!

In the years following a devastating mass shooting at a mall in Portland, Maine, the survivors funnel their trauma through different outlets: pursuing careers in law enforcement, cultivating an artistic side, generally trying to move on in some level of peace. But while the city is healing and rebuilding itself, one person believes the shooter didn't go far enough...

I had to take a break on “Spinning Silver” to read this since it finally came off hold from the library.So far this isn‘t a typical Nora Roberts mushy romance. I have a feeling there will be some romance later on but so far it‘s a bit different from what I‘m used to from her. In a good way though. The start of this book was a bit hard to get through, especially if someone gets triggered by gun violence; I made it, but it was tough! It was so sad!

Enjoyable, but not as enjoyable as many of her other romantic suspense books as I didn't feel a connection with the characters.

The book follows the events of a mass shooting (a difficult chapter to get through) and the stories of a couple of the survivors - and the mastermind behind the attack. It passes lightly over about a decade, which may be part of the problem I had connecting emotionally.

Between a pick and a so-so.

That was a first for me while reading. Maybe it‘s cause I am mother.. but continue on I will.

Meh...It was ok. I thought the killer was way over the top and too ridiculous for words. I couldn't stop rolling my eyes at whatever CiCi said but I did enjoy the romance between Reed and Simone. My favorite parts of the book were Reed's interactions with Barney. Give a book with a cute dog in it and I'm happy.
