My second attempt to find something I like by the author. This was a big let down. Not enough horror. The authors commentary at the end was so over-the-top ridiculous I will never read another by her.

I really enjoy Alma Katsu‘s books. She takes things that have happened that are historical mysteries and gives them supernatural reasons for why they happened in fictional fairy tales pretty much. It‘s a unique concept and I really enjoy the supernatural elements.

This book...promises so much and after 224 pages of insufferable rich people and a twist that I totally called by page 100 and has nothing to do with the Titanic (I peeked ahead), I'm just done and bailing ship (ha). I do think some people will enjoy its unique concept but good lord was it boring and unlikable for me. Although I'm a bit bummed, there's too many other books calling me name to struggle on.

Finally finished this book. Only took about 6 months 🤔

I liked the take on the Titanic tragedy but found that this really dragged on and by the time I got to the end, it was a bit underwhelming. Not bad but I had higher expectations

My finished Hot & Sour Soup from a Jamie Oliver recipe. For some reason (maybe temperature) my egg didn‘t “ribbon” & instead cooked nicely into the soup a bit like avgolemono, but the flavor was spot-on so I don‘t care too much.🤷🏻‍♀️Lots of tofu, mushrooms & bamboo shoots & just the right amount of spicy & tangy for me, it hit the spot.🥣Recipe link below.

With one of my current reads—I‘ve been trying to get to this one for a while now.

I have wanted this book for so long and was lucky enough to receive it as a Christmas gift ❤️🎅🏻

This book was full of twists and turns and was incredibly atmospheric, it was really enjoyable. I am a complete and utter history dork so the titanic segments were particularly interesting to me!

The story was dark, mesmerising and really original, I‘ll keep an eye out for Alma Katsu‘s other novels!

It's about the Titanic and the Britannic sinkings, but reimagined as ghost stories. I do wish she had focused on a couple of characters because I felt like there were too many one dimensional ones whose stories didn't contribute to the plot. And she took one scene directly from the movie. For the most part, I really enjoyed it. I'd give it a 4 out of 5.

Maybe more if I manage my time well enough. I‘m halfway through the Tagged book and hope to get it done in the next day or so. As for the others, we‘ll see! Reading these for #Scarathlon as well! #TeamSlaughter @Clwojick

It was alright. I was hoping for another horror story like the hunger. It wasn‘t really a horror story, but it did make a good ghost story. Writing was still great. 4/5.

The novel sweeps between 1912 and 1916, through the few days of the Titanic‘s voyage and the final days of the Britannic‘s life.

An excellent psychological thriller that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

I love when a solid historical fiction story twists into something with fantasy or the supernatural. This one hits that genre on the nose. Katsu combines many story threads—which makes it pleasantly difficult to sort out the solution to the mystery. She waits until nearly the end and wallops you with the details. Just the way I like my stories!

The last book I read in July ? Really enjoyed it, The Deep is a suspenseful "#ghost" (and ?) story with various characters who are on the #Titanic. Our main is Annie Hebbley, one of the few people who survived and later finds herself on the #Britannic, the sister ship, during #worldwar1. Intriguing, disturbing in the #love dpt, and just WOW. Slow paced but kept me hooked, would have finished in one sitting if not for my job ? #historicalfiction

🎧 This is a supernatural mystery that takes place mainly in 1912 & 1916 on the Titanic & Britannic. Loved the premise & had amazing potential. Are you sensing a “but”? You‘d be right if you were. I just didn‘t like the 3 main characters. I found a subplot with 2 pugilist con artists Infinitely more interesting ... 2nd BUT ... it does pick up, narrator‘s good, chapter titles were good & the last 1/3 of the story was suspenseful & telling! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

What Alma Katsu did with her fictional take on The Donner Party, she does again by doubling down on not just The Titanic, but also it's sister ship, The Britannic. A beautifully written spooky tale of tragic lost love wrapped in an inevitable shroud of doom.

This book was so, so good! Rich, atmospheric, just the right amount of spooky and a hint of Irish folklore. This would be a fantastic fall/winter read as I think cool weather would enhance all those factors! Fulfills the #ReadYourSign prompt for a book that heavily mentions my sign‘s element of water! ♋️

I really enjoyed this spooky tale of the Titanic and the Britannic. Annie Henley is a stewardess who survives the Titanic, and finds herself as a nurse on the Britannic (talk about bad luck!). When Annie sets foot on the Britannic, the memories of her previous fateful voyage come flooding back to her. There‘s an underlying menace, which frankly, would keep me off anything that floats for life! It doesn‘t end well 🤷🏼‍♀️ Recommended!

As with The Hunger, Alma Katsu takes a historic true event (here, the Titanic) and adds a paranormal-type twist, but with enough subtlety that it leaves you wondering. Overall, I found this book very engaging, but the twist really didn‘t work for me. After the twist was revealed, I felt there was too much explaining about how we got there. I think Katsu is a good writer and I‘m interested to see what she does next.

Thanks for the tag, @MoonWitch94 ❤️

- hoping to finish tagged book today and then on to my next bookspin book; also working on reread of Sense & Sensibility, one chapter per day.

- watched Emma. Again. This time purely for Johnny Flynn aesthetic purposes. 😂

Tagging a few, but all can play!

“Someone, or some thing, is haunting the Titanic.” Not usually drawn to paranormal, I was in for a #surprise! It was great-with a dual timeline, this is #aboutanurse who survived Titanic only to set sail again years later on sister ship Brittanic which is a hospital ship now during WW1.

Paranormal-ish historical fiction with a dual time line of Titanic 1912 and Brittanic (WW1 hospital ship) 1916. The MC‘s friend Violet Jessop was a real person who survived both shipwrecks and lived until 1971.

A slow burn story about a woman who survives the sinking of Titanic and eventually returns to service on Britannic. Things aren't what they seem as her sanity has been questioned, as has her obsession with a first class passenger from Titanic. Full of rich detail about the ship and its famous first class passengers. Photo taken from a separate book, noted in comments.

This went from a so-so to a pick for me because of how damn insane it made me feel. Honestly, for the last third of the book it felt like I was the one going crazy. Props to the author for getting into my head so much.

I love things about the titanic, so this book was quite high on my radar when I found out about it. Add in spooky stuff and it was an automatic buy for me.

Every character was awful which made it hard to get into but intriguing.

Now I am by no means an expert on the horror genre but I would never consider this to be a horror so I can see why the book pitched as “titanic horror story“ isn't getting rave reviews. I like all the switching back and fourth between times and boats. I was still left with questions but I got a good idea of all the characters and why they did what they did. I liked it as a paranormal leaning historical fiction.

BekahB I‘m excited to read this one! I really enjoyed her previous book, The Hunger. 3y

A well researched, paranormal take on the sinking of both the Titanic and it's sister ship, the Britannic. Told in alternating timelines from the years the ships sunk in 1912 and 1916, narrator Annie Hebbley is able to give readers a good feel for what life was like on both ships. The characters felt pretty real, and most of them actually were, which added an additional education piece to this otherwise creepy, fictional story.

Finished this book last night. Still mulling how I feel about it. I really liked reading about the Titanic and the passengers and all their drama. I liked reading about the sister ship being used as a wartime hospital during WWI. However, I don‘t know how I feel about the end, which I can say what exactly because Spoilers. 🤫

I will keep reading books by Alma Katsu. I think she‘s a good writer.

There were a few typos/misplaced the‘s in the text

abookdragonsretreat Is there any romance in this book? I've been reading reviews but cant see any answers 😂 3y
Laughterhp @AmyTheBookdragon Not really. One of the characters has a crush on one of the passengers, but that‘s all I can say. There are a lot of married couples in this book and you can see that they love each other and goes into some of their history, but that‘s about it. Sorry, I don‘t want to spoil anything for you. 3y

Happy Saturday! This morning we are practicing social distancing with each other. The hubby is still working. He‘s technically an essential employee.

He may have come into contact with someone who has it. But that was last Thursday 3/12, so just playing it safe.

Later we‘ll go outside and have a fire 🤞🏻🤞🏻So glad we live in the “country” and no longer live in a city right now.

Lcsmcat 🤞🏻 that he stays healthy. 3y
