Mehso-so

This was a disappointment. From plot holes to lack of simple research (bennies are uppers not downers, etc), it seemed she wrote this sequel to Pieces of Her in a rush. She gets a so-so instead of a pan because I like Andrea as a character, but if the next book is this weak, I won‘t continue.

Andrea is a newly minted US Marshall. She gets assigned to watch a judge receiving death threats and gets drawn into the mystery of her daughter‘s murder.

5feet.of.fury Wait this is a sequel 1d
Cinfhen I just ordered this book for N who is OBSESSED with Karin Slaughter 1d
lele1432 That is disappointing! I just got a library copy of Pieces of Her. I guess I‘ll do a library hold for this one as well. Kind of shocked an author with her catalog wouldn‘t do basic research. 1d

TrishB It‘s definitely not her best. 1d
Megabooks @5feet.of.fury yes 1d
Megabooks @Cinfhen I hope she likes it more than I did! 1d
Megabooks @lele1432 I really enjoyed PoH!! I‘d recommend the library for this. 1d
Megabooks @TrishB unfortunately… 1d
5feet.of.fury @Megabooks mine is on preorder. I feel like I should have known this! Pieces of Her is my least favorite. I‘m still going to read it, but 🫤 1d
CoverToCoverGirl I‘ll skip this one for sure now as I bailed on PoH. 😕 1d
Megabooks @5feet.of.fury yeah, I think it should‘ve been more clear. 1d
Megabooks @CoverToCoverGirl good idea. 👍🏻☹️ (edited) 1d
Cinfhen We‘ll see…and I hope so too!! 23h

The blue box express 😉 #botm arrived today! I‘m a little disappointed that the prizes for the basic reading challenge aren‘t better, but it‘s a decent notepad. Super curious about what the #ShelfSlayer prize will be!!

I think I‘ll start with the tagged book 👍🏻📖🔪

mdm139 The shelf slayer prize is a bookmark 1w
Librariana I didn't know they were giving out prizes now! I've been out of the #botm loop for a while. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on 1w
Cinfhen Funday!!! 1w

They lured me back with a $4.99 offer. 2 minutes after the mailman put this in my hands, I called and cancelled. 😈

vivastory 🤣 I get a free selection next month for my birthday, after that I'm going to cancel 2w
TrishB But you got another one 👍🏻 2w
MicheleinPhilly @vivastory @TrishB They totally hoodwinked me with the offer. They insinuated that I could get something that I ultimately couldn‘t. 😒 But I‘ll take a new Karin Slaughter for 5 bucks! The customer service rep asked me why I was cancelling. I told her if she saw my unread books list, her head would explode. 2w

Karin Slaughter did it again! This was such a great read, but be warned there are lots of content warnings and heavy material.

July #WrapUp
Technically it's 6 books, but when I realized I only had the abridged version of Jane Eyre I decided to get the audio book and listen to the full version as well.

For this month I can't pick a favourite 🤷🏼‍♀️
I loved both of Slaughter's books and I was really surprised at how much I loved Jane Eyre.

As for The Way of the Kings: I feel I can't just rate part1, I'll get back to rating it once I'm done with Part2; but so far😍

August #BOTM picks! Some really good choices imo!

Personally, I've got my eye on the Slaughter (duh) and The Devil Takes You Home. I've got a huuuuge backlog of books right now, so we'll see if I can control myself or if another ends up in the cart 😂

Megabooks Thanks for the tag! I planned to pick up the Marra so hopefully there‘s a main pick I want too! 4w
Breanne1 Thanks for the tag, I‘m always so grateful that you include me 😄 I think I‘ll have to go with Daisy Darker!! But others from this list have peaked my interest. 4w
jlhammar Thanks, Ashley! Wow, this is going to be a really hard month for me. I'm kind of interested in all of them and that rarely happens. Deciding on only 3 will be tough. Grateful for the heads-up so I can do a bit of research. For sure adding-on the Marra, but torn on the other two. 4w

Kangaj1 The Slaughter book is a book 2. Does anyone know if they must be read in order? I adored the Jamie Ford book! 4w
marleed Ohh, I was hoping you‘d have a post on this. I have a list of new books I want to read coming out in August, and 4 made it to your post. I think I‘ll go with Daisy Darker, the Karin Slaughter, and the Jamie Ford (predicted as the ReadWithJenna) pick. 4w
vivastory I love these picks!! I will definitely be picking up the Iglesias. 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage I wish they offered more nonfiction—even memoirs. 3w
TheBookStacker I think I‘ll do The Devil Takes You Home and the new Marra 3w

Bk12 of June & #BigJuneReadathon is done. And what a book! I didn‘t realise at first it was a sequel to Pieces Of Her which, though not without brilliance, was not Slaughters best book. But I think with this she has another world burning cast of characters that are just as brilliant & devious & tortured as her Grant County & Will Trent series. Am totally looking forward to the next Sarah & Will but now also holding on for the next Andrea Oliver!👇

Lizpixie Oh by the way, it‘s now 4am and I read it through without putting it down🙌 2mo
Clwojick Woohooooo! Glad to hear it! I know Pieces of her was just meh for a lot of readers. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2mo

Today I have been out for lunch with hubby, read this book and watched Glastonbury 😁 a perfect day. I‘m not a Beatles or McCartney fan (exiled from the Republic of Liverpool now!) but McCartney at 80 giving this show is pretty amazing.
The book is a good thriller, no over the top goryness so the squeamish peeps are ok! (Slightly disappointing 😁). But she always weaves a good story.

Bookwomble You're going to have to move to Runcorn! 😄 2mo

BarbaraBB I‘m not a Beatles fan either but he‘s well worth the title of Living Legend 😀 2mo
TrishB @BarbaraBB yes definitely! How he pulled that show out the bag at 80 I don‘t know. Much respect. 2mo
charl08 Is this allowed? 🤣🤯 2mo
CarolynM People look at me like I‘m insane when I say I‘m not particularly keen on the Beatles. Glad I‘m not the only one 🙂 @BarbaraBB 2mo
LeahBergen What a great day you had! ❤️ 2mo
Cinfhen Sounds like a FABULOUS day-!!! I can‘t believe PM is 80!!! He really is a living legend, just like MJ from The Rolling Stones 2mo
Cinfhen I think N is going to be disappointed that this wasn‘t too gory or violent enough 😁😉😂 2mo
TrishB @Cinfhen I would agree with her 😁 2mo
TrishB @CarolynM imagine in Liverpool 😱 2mo

I'm so excited for the new Karin Slaughter this summer! Which cover do you prefer? I actually like the UK version personally 👏🏽

5feet.of.fury I just preordered! I like the UK better too 🥲 6mo
marleed I must have a ‘grass is always greener‘ attitude when it comes to cover art because I often prefer the UK cover of a book! 6mo
