#Aprella #ExCalling #CrawlOutOfLove #Famous #BodackYellow Excuse the 🎼catch-up 🤷🏼‍♀️

Pretty good & quite dark thriller. Geo has the kind of EX you don't want CALLING. Calvin, her high school boyfriend is a serial killer, FAMOUS for his brutal crimes & 14 years after the disappearance of her best friend, Geo must pay for withholding information about her murder with a jail sentence. She had to CRAWL OUT OF LOVE with Calvin & when he escapes...

DebinHawaii ...his jail cell & new murders start happening, Gia thinks he might be coming back for her. Twisted & graphic-I liked the pace & couldn't help feeling sorry for Gia-even though she's not that likable. Her time in prison & dealings there were interesting (& her edge gave me a definite BODAK YELLOW vibe). I just wish I hadn't seen the biggest twists coming in this NetGalley #ARC. It did get me to read 2 of the author's earlier books I had on Kindle. (edited) 1y
Cinfhen Well done, missed you the last few days❤️ 1y
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen Well I didn't manage to work in We Rise but I thought four was pretty good. 😆It's been a crazy couple of weeks trying to get a project done. Missed you too. I feel out of the loop. 😞 1y

Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York | James T Murray, Karla L Murray
post image

I don't think my husband realizes that one of our favourite coffee table books was a gift from an ex boyfriend (shhh....). I love this book, a look at New York City through the faces of its bodegas, delis, Mom and Pop shops, and more, that are slowly disappearing in favour of polish and poise. If you like your NYC with a bit of grit, it's a collection for you!

“You loved me - then what right had you to leave me? Because misery and degradation, and death, and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you, of your own will, did it. I have not broken your heart - you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine.” — Heathcliff

#Aprella #day22 #ExCalling Gwen Proctor has a serious problem when her ex starts calling her. Mostly due to the fact he‘s a homocidal sociopath serial killer who‘s now in prison & isn‘t supposed to know her whereabouts thanks to her constantly moving with their two kids & changing her identity. Previously known as Gina Royal, she was as shocked as everyone when a car hitting her garage revealed a dead girl hanging in there. Now she‘s on the run.

Reviewsbylola Yeah that def sounds like a problem. 😂😂 1y
emilyhaldi Ugh, damn. 😳 1y

What if your #excalling was royalty? Mathilde Kschessinska and Tsar Nicholas II were lovers before Nicholas went on to marry Empress Alexandra. Mathilde, a professional ballerina, didn‘t hear from Nicholas until he had become discouraged by all the girl babies he was siring with Alix, at which time he came crawling back. The book is written from the perspective of Mathilde at age 100, as she looks back on her life. I read this ages ago. #aprella

Cinfhen Ohhh; I like the sound of this one!!! 1y
