All These Beautiful Strangers
All These Beautiful Strangers | Elizabeth Klehfoth
Charlie Calloway has a life most people would kill for - a tight-knit family, a loyal set of friends, and top grades a privileged boarding school. But Charlie's never been interested in what most people want. Like all Calloways, she's been taught that she's different, special - better. So when her school's super-exclusive secret society extends a mysterious invitation, Charlie's determination to get in is matched only by her conviction that she belongs there. But their secrets go deeper than she knows. Charlie finds herself thrust into the centre of a decades-old mystery - one that implicates her family in not one terrible crime, but two. Uncovering their past may destroy everything she knows - or give her the answer she's always craved: Who or what was behind her mother's disappearance ten years ago?

#Audiocommuting and contemplating life.

I‘m anxious for a career change that‘ll bring more balance into my world... but trying to focus on gratitude and mindfulness in the meanwhile.

Happy Monday, friends!

Out for our daily walk and this sign cracked me up Started tagged audio today #BFC #bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

JanuarieTimewalker13 Perfect and true! They don‘t want to smell it, either. Quit and save your life and others‘. Second hand smoke kills. That‘s what my sign would say. Lol can you tell I despise cigarettes? 4mo
wanderinglynn 😂 That‘s awesome! Any way to go! 🙌🏻 4mo
imabusybee @JanuarieTimewalker13 I do too! I watched my mother die of lung cancer so I always say smokers are so selfish especially to their children 4mo

Caterina Great sign! 😂 I know how addictive smoking is, so I have a lot of empathy for people who do smoke, but litterers get on my last nerve! Great job getting out there for a walk in the sunshine! 4mo
SaturnDoo 🤣 great sign. I'm currently trying to quit smoking.I'm the first to admit it's a dirty,stinky habit. I understand and respect both smokers and non-smokers. 😞🙄🤔 I'm not a drinker, live with an alcoholic and feel the same way about drinking 😝as y'all do about smoking😝. 4mo
guinsgirlreads 😂😂👏🏻 4mo
4thhouseontheleft That sign is excellent! I love that our greenways and county parks are smoke-free, I can't stand walking/exercising and coming across secondhand smoke, it usually triggers my asthma. 4mo
imabusybee @SaturnDoo that's awesome that you wanna quit I hope you great success. 4mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @SaturnDoo Exactly same sentiments as @imabusybee ! It robbed me of my aunt!! Stay strong! Do whatever you have to do! Don‘t worry about a few extra pounds. You‘ve got this, and if you slip up, try again. Never stop trying❤️ 4mo
SaturnDoo @imabusybee @JanuarieTimewalker13 Thank you🤗 I'm trying...and it's really hard. I have grandchildren now and that's my motivation. Currently using the gum which helps a lot. The extra pounds has concerned me as I am already carrying a few extra 😂 I keep telling myself one thing at a time 4mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @SaturnDoo Exactly!! The gum sounds like a great idea bc it covers the nicotine and keeping the mouth busy! Your kids must be so excited!! I‘m sending you some positive vibes 💫😘 4mo

I liked this book enough to stay up way too late last night to finish it. This reminded me of The Secret History, both in content and pace - elite prep school, secret society, not a tightly wound suspense novel but one that slowly reveals itself. Also similar - this book is full of characters that are hard to really like, but who are interesting. I actually liked this better (gasp heard from the cult of Secret History!!) #catsoflitsy #lucy #elvis

This book is not a puck but I can see how some would enjoy the story. I found the story itself long and drawn out. The revelations were not really shocking. There was no real suspense either. I was not a fan of the audio either.

Up next - I‘ve read some pretty great reviews surrounding this one.
Is a YA contemporary mystery/thriller with an elite boarding school setting, 17 year old mystery of a mother‘s disappearance. Reviewers say this is a cross between Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl and Cruel Intentions.
All sounds good to me!

4/5 ⭐ (full review on my blog)

A beautiful story about families, love, betrayal, the difference between the rich and poor, and a girl that tries to discover what happened to her missing mother, while discovering herself.

I really liked this one. An interesting structure for a YA book, the point of view shifting from the teenage girl in present time to both her mom's and dad's' povs in the years leading up to her mom's mysterious disappearance. Good main and subplot, plenty of suspense!

Really enjoyed this book! Really appreciated that there was more to this book than a secret society. There was real depth and nuance to the characters, especially Charlie and Grace. I really liked how it delved into the past and Charlie realizes her family history. Also love #playaway devices! They‘re the best!

“No one can really understand the whole of a person. In many ways, the people I was closest to, the people who meant the most to me - were strangers. Beautiful strangers.” Family mysteries, secret society, college campus- I‘m here for all of those. #LitsyAtoZ #TheLetterA

The simplistic plot line is tough, the teenage musings are tough, the twist is tough. This book is tough. When I say “tough,” I mean poorly written, predictable, and too easy. The prose wasn‘t notable, the narrative was inconsistent, and the twists were predictable and cheap. I‘ll save it for my niece though. A 9 year old might find this scandalous.

I always thought that what people saw when they looked at a photo said more about them than what was actually in the shot.

BibliophileArtichoke Hmmm, I found this to be less than profound, personally. We do taint every perception with experience. Isn‘t that what keeps us alive? If we went into every situation as a blank slate then we would be vulnerable. What we see in a photo is a balance of fact and fiction, always. (edited) 14mo

A fun and easy summer read with some twists I didn‘t expect and a bit of a YA tilt; not necessarily what I typically would go for, but the ‘boarding school in New England‘ plot line always draws me in! And A+ #coverlove

Wait. Did I just pick up a YA novel disguised as a beach-read? Granted, I picked this book randomly because I like a mindless thriller, but this has GOT to be YA. I‘m not experienced with that genre, but I think if I was 15 I‘d really like this.
