This was good for what it was. With that being said, I was just using this book as filler until my other holds came in. The detective thriller isn't really my go to genre... #52 #2019

Book #52: After reading Crime and Punishment I became a big fan of Dostoyevsky, an I found that this book read a lot like Crime and Punishment, which is the reason why I liked it so much. I probably would put this on my personal must read list but Crime and Punishment is already on the list and I thought that Crime and Punishment was a much better...

#52 of my year & I‘m finally adventuring into this world. So far this year I have checked off several series that have been on my TBR for a long time and I‘m so proud!

Caffeinated_Reader Oh that was everything it promised to be. I loved the game & got swept up with all the magic and festivities. That ending chilled me. I was so caught up with the moments of closure that I forgot there was still time for the other shoe to drop...it sure did! 8mo

#52 "It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a... kid?"
Poor Jack, he gets picked on and made to feel like a total loser all the time. But things begin to change for Jack when he finds a really cool book called Flying Lessons. It's supposedly teaches humans how to fly. And Jack is learning quickly. But maybe he's in over his head this time.

This is by far the most amazing true crime book I've ever read. I was completely immersed, the audio was 26 hours but it completely flew by. #52 #audible #truecrime

sammisho I'm debating on using an audible credit on this or not... would be a good spooky October read, but might also keep me up at night. I'm a wimp. 😬 1y
kricheal @sammisho I can't remember the narrator's name but he was on point. 👌 As horrifying as the murders are, you feel like you're right in the middle of the court room drama. It is a perfect October nonfiction read. 1y
LeslieO This is the book that got me hooked on legal dramas and police procedurals. I first read it when I was in 8th grade! And recently reread it. (edited) 1y

sammisho Scott Brick...one of my favorite narrators! 1y
kricheal @LeslieO I can see why, it's so good! 1y
kricheal @sammisho I'm still new to the "audio game" I haven't had a chance to pick favorites yet. This guy was perfect for this read though. 1y
Jee_HookedOnBookz The documentary was really good too! 1y

rwmg Who keeps pairing books I love together and books I dislike/am indifferent to together? 1y
MrBook @rwmg 😂👏🏻🙌🏻 All 100 titles were placed in a little pail and randomly drawn. Now that we're on Round 2, a little over half of these titles already won their first bracket. The others were automatically placed on a Round 2 bracket (a by, or a pass) to account for the eventual odd number of participants that would result. (I spread them out in the first rounds instead of the latter ones to avoid confusion.) The bracket chart will be shared soon. 1y
Laura317 I‘m picking Anne of Green Gables! 1y
