This library sale find had some amusing moments, but the plot is already fading from memory. 💯 #MoreMehThanYeah

Hurricane Sandy hits the NYC area, and in the Hudson Valley, a family patriarch dies. His oldest is a sex addict trying to juggle two girlfriends while pining for his ex-wife. Middle sis lives in LA, has a wild 5 year old, and works for a whiny celebrity. The youngest can‘t seem to fly the nest. Chaos erupts when they all meet.

Cinfhen It sounds like a book I would love!!! Messy families are my jam. I might need to re- stack and look to #BorrowNotBuy 🤪 1w

This book has a lot of odd light fictionalization, including this

Glaxo + Wellcome + SmithKline Beecham = GSK or GlaxoSmithKline, which is the maker of a number of anti-depressants 🤣🤣

Cinfhen I‘ve been curious about this book - I stacked it ages ago!! 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen Eh. #moremehthanyeah I‘m glad it cost a dollar! 2w
Cinfhen Im removing from my TBR list / thanks for the honest feedback xx 2w

It‘s tough being human. Read my thoughts on this collection of essays here: https://debbybrauer.org/#bad-vibes-only

Cinfhen Ha! I listened to this audio a few weeks ago & while I appreciated some essays more than others, overall I didn‘t find the collection super memorable. So #MoreMehThanYeah for me 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3w
JoyBlue @Cinfhen I love your use of hashtags! 😂 I think I agree . . . I don't know that any of the essays will stick with me. I appreciated them in the moment, though. 3w

If you‘re a fan, I‘m sure you‘ll find plenty to love - if you‘re a hater, I‘m sure you‘ll find plenty to hate…and if you are slightly curious you‘ll probably still be slightly curious. I was expecting more but this was pleasant enough. #MoreMehThanYeah #BorrowNotBuy #NonfictionNovember

I had a very busy reading week!!! 5 were #NFNovember and also my #BookSpin #DoubleSpin and while I enjoyed all 5 books, I felt a few were just too long. Same for You Love Me, book 3 in the YOU series. House of Sticks was probably my favorite of the week followed by Friday Night Lights!!! Review coming. Palace Papers was also VERY good - more info than I needed to know. Carolina Built was #MoreMehThanYeah & Notes was a pick - good on audio 🙌🏻

squirrelbrain Wow, a great week! 1mo

I absolutely bought this book for it‘s GORGEOUS cover and while I found the book a quick read, it lacked the “sparkle” that the cover projects. This is an historical reimagining of Josephine Leary, an emancipated slave who went on to become a leading real estate owner in 1800‘s North Carolina. Unfortunately the book lacked real depth or insight, which is a shame because Josephine was quite an amazing woman. #MoreMehThanYeah

Surprisingly, I finished 4 books this week - I have houseguests for the next week so we‘ll see how much reading i do. LOVED the new Thursday Murder Club the others were #MoreMehThanYeah 🙄Curious to see what others think about our #FearfulFall #HappyHorror #BuddyRead book - The Horseman.

TrishB You did well 👍🏻 2mo
BarbaraBB You‘ve already finished it! Moremehthanyeah sounds not good! 2mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen I‘m sorry you didn‘t enjoy Horseman. 😔 I found it fun, but I‘m also a big fan of the original and a sucker for retellings. 2mo
Cinfhen Im glad you enjoyed it @DGRachel - I think I was expecting spooky/ horror and this felt a bit weak 😂 2mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen I can see that. I seem to be failing at picking true horror/spooky books just for myself this October. I had to ask my indie bookstore for recommendations. 🫤 2mo

This was a #CoverCrush buy that is #MoreMehThanYeah. CW in spoiler.

This novel is an oppressively sad, atmospheric look at a day in the life of a pediatric ICU nurse. She is deeply emotionally involved in her work and is in the early stages of burnout from compassion fatigue. A short, hard read.

This is my #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks 👍🏻

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Pretty 😍 2mo
Chelsea.Poole Sounds tough and I‘m going to avoid but that cover 😍 2mo
jlhammar That is a great cover. 2mo

I picked this up during the BIG Audible sale and while I thought the audio narration was fabulous I was underwhelmed with the overall collection. This was 3 separate novellas, which felt more like bits of a larger unfinished story. Grisham writes captivating stories and characters and while I enjoyed all three novellas, I was left wanting MORE. #MoreMehThanYeah
