New books in the library!!! Two sequels to two books I very much enjoyed. Looking forward to a long weekend filled with lots of reading.
1) Loooong wait ✔️
2) Loooots of anticipation ✔️
3) A sequel that doesn't disappoint ✔️✔️
I was worried that this one was going to be a let down. I didn't like it as much as the first, but I found myself satisfied by the end. McManus's writing is almost hypnotic! #happysigh
maybe 3+: I rated One of Us Is Lying 4 stars. This sequel was still more entertaining than average; but, not as thrilling as the first. Too, there's so much slime. The basic premise is that there's a new round of gossip being dished, by way of a truth or dare game. The original characters still appear (to a lesser degree), with the transition to the new round of main characters being bridged by Bronwyn's little sister, Maeve.
B&N #bookhaul today thanks to a holiday gift card. Super excited for the tagged and The God Game. The Robert Jordan book was a present for the hubby.
This year I‘m really trying to curb my book buying so I was pretty impressed to walk into a bookstore unsupervised and didn‘t spend any of my actual money.
This book was amazing! I read it in less than 24 hours, and I can't wait to share it with my friends. Suspense and intrigue are expertly built. I love that Maeve was brought back and also enjoyed the new character additions. I think the idea of a Truth or Dare game gone wrong is not only intriguing, but completely believable (and a little terrifying). I loved that this book wasn't overly predictable, and I can't want to see what McManus does next.
Often my Mom-hat gets in the way of enjoying YA, but I‘m 3-for-3 thumbs up with this author. It was great to revisit Bayview with Maeve as an MC of this fun mystery. I love the sidebar thoughts of the characters as the mystery unfolds
Now excuse me while I pause and give thanks to the gods of technology that my my method of sustaining HS gossip was this super-cool circle phone.
Karen M. McManus is an auto buy author and this books didn‘t disappoint at all. I was so excited to return to Bayview. When a game of truth and dare turns deadly everyone is trying to find out who is behind the game. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and of course I didn‘t see the twist coming at the end. Can‘t wait for her next book to come out!
Trying to read this morning but someone wants to cuddle very close to my face this morning! 💜🐱📚💜🐱📚
1) Ugh. I‘ve had pneumonia, so that has sucked. But it‘s eased up, so I‘m hoping to get back to work soon even if I‘m not 100%
2) I‘ve read 6 books so far... starting the tagged next.
3) I‘m not sure who hasn‘t done it, so I tag everyone!
One Of Us Is Next 💙

First new book Tuesday of the year!!! One of Us is Next is probably the book that I am looking forward to most this year. Going to save it for this weekend so I don‘t have to put it down if I don‘t want too!
Today's release! Currently 👓
I enjoyed One of Us is Lying well enough, but didn't necessarily see the need for a sequel to it. Having read this though, I think I enjoyed it better. I found the characters to be much more sympathetic than in the first installment and the plot was much less far-fetched. The text game of Truth or Dare was more believable than Simon's set-up in the first book. Definitely didn't see the twist coming in the last couple of pages.
