Wake the Bones: A Novel | Elizabeth Kilcoyne
post image

Wake the Bones by Elizabeth Kilcoyne
I absolutely loved the writing style and the creep factor. The storyline held my interest immediately although parts of it jumped around, and some actions of the characters seemed inconsistent. Overall, this story is exactly the type I love so I'm rating it 4 stars.

I refuse to be one of the authors that reviews their own books, so I‘m thankful for Litzy‘s Blurb feature!

I almost screamed when my book popped up in the search—even though the cover hasn‘t been added.

It‘s been six months since I publish this beauty and I still can‘t believe it 🥰

Bk1 of Feb is done! A #BookspinBingo #Pop21 #ByAnIndigenousAuthor #ReadHarder2021 #ByANativeAmericanAuthor #NerdReading2021 #DebutAuthor #PickYourPoison #Pageathon #CloakDaggerChal #PrettyMessChallenge #DebutAuthor #PennyPerPage #325cents #LitsyAtoZ2021 #LetterW #BookishBingo #RedCover This was a brilliant book! Set on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota, it‘s about Virgil Wounded Horse, a tribal enforcer who provides the justice cops won‘t.

jessjess Oooh that sounds interesting 2y
Lizpixie @jessjess it‘s well worth a read. I learned a lot about the plight of the Lakota, I didn‘t know how broken their legal system is from government red tape. Plus the real story of Mt Rushmore from their perspective is devestating! 2y
jessjess @Lizpixie definitely adding this to my TBR list! 2y
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2y
MyNamesParadise I checked out the audio cd of this from my library but my car CD player couldn‘t read the disc so I may have to check out the psychical book! 2y

Jennaree3 What‘s it about? 2y
Sharpeipup @Jennaree3 A murder trial where Abraham Lincoln served as the lawyer of the defendant but all told through the accused‘s younger brother. 2y
Jennaree3 Awesome. I‘m a self published author, too, and know how it takes a village to get the thing formatted, edited, cover designed, etc. I‘ll check it out! 2y
Sharpeipup @Jennaree3 It really does...This has been over 2 years in the making! (But I bet that doesn‘t surprise you) 2y

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline

I loved this book. I am endlessly fascinated by cults and I enjoyed reading this. Heavily influenced by the Manson Murders (the movie Charlie Says is good, you can see a lot of parallels) and a hint of David Koresh.

Not for everyone! Some difficult things to read about be aware of your triggers.

BarbaraBB Oooh I have a copy of this one on my shelves! 3y
Cinfhen Read it @BarbaraBB I think you‘re gonna like it! I‘m only 100 pages in but it‘s a page turner. @KarenUK said it made her sad too, @Megabooks but I‘m not at that point yet...although I can see Queenie‘s pattern of bad decisions. 3y
BarbaraBB Is it YA? 3y
Cinfhen No!!! @BarbaraBB contemporary literary fiction 💓 3y
BarbaraBB I was actually looking for YA (PoC) this time for one of the challenges 😀 3y
Megabooks @Cinfhen there was a point near the end where her self destructive decisions just really got to me. 3y
TrishB It made me sad and shout at the book a couple of times. But I enjoyed it and think it tackled a lot of issues. 3y
Cinfhen Hmmmm, I don‘t think it works for YA @BarbaraBB 🤪you could ask @Megabooks @TrishB or @erzascarletbookgasm if they think so... 3y
TrishB I definitely don‘t think so! 3y
BarbaraBB Then I will just read it because I want to instead of for one of the challenges 😃 3y
erzascarletbookgasm @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB nope, not YA. @TrishB I definitely wanted to shout and shake Queenie up! But she‘s a complex character. 3y
Megabooks @BarbaraBB good idea! It‘s a great book! @TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm totally agree about shouting and shaking Queenie!! 3y
KarenUK I just wanted to give her a big hug! @erzascarletbookgasm @megabooks @TrishB Definitely not YA... @BarbaraBB .... I read this one for that prompt, and thought it was good 3y
KarenUK And definitely #greatfirstline 😂💕 @cinfhen 3y
erzascarletbookgasm @KarenUK Queenie deserves a big hug! But at some point in the story I just wanted her wake up! 3y
BarbaraBB @KarenUK Thanks for the suggestion! 3y
Cinfhen I read the other book by the same author @BarbaraBB and it was really fun but VERY YA 3y

Bk1 of May & my #bookspin & 1st Bk of #BookSpinBonanza is done! Loved this very much, I‘m a sucker for Russian folktales. I don‘t know why it took me so long to get to, I‘m stoked to have the next 2 books in the series as well. Highly recommend🙌 #Booked2020 #EccentricMC #ReadingWomensChallenge #FrequentlyRecommendedToYou #ReadingEurope2020 #Russia #MountTBR2020 #Bk21 #BeatTheBacklist2020 #Bk24 #ReadWithMrBook #May #DebutAuthor #MayBookBingo 👇

Librarybelle Perfect choice! And, the cover is so colorful! I like the US cover, but it‘s way more subdued than this edition! 3y
TheAromaofBooks Great review!! I really need to get to this one! 3y
