I couldn‘t put this book down. It was like her It Ends With Us book. It Ends With Us was a little better but not by too much. So far I like the subject matters that she writes about. This only my second book of hers that I‘ve read. I read for the ATY prompt 50-a book that includes a journey. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

I thought this was pretty good. There were some creepy parts in it and it was fun to wonder what happened to the prior teams that went into Area X. I read it for the ATY challenge prompt #1-a book that was nominated for an award of my choice. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

I loved how this book was told from the child‘s perspective. It made the horror of the Holocaust that much more horrible. #aty2019 #aroundtheyearin52books I read this for the weird or intriguing title prompt.

Crazeedi I want to read but don't know if and when my heart can take 5mo
Shakespearience I did the audio version of this and has the ending starts to unfold I remember yelling in my car. 5mo
Joanster5 I don‘t think I cried. It was more of an outraged feeling. The way the author shows the world through Bruno‘s eyes was well done. 5mo

I thought this was a fun thriller. I read it all in one day. I couldn‘t put it down. It was Hitchcock like. My gut twisted in suspense at a couple of parts. I may have jumped once while reading it. I did guess a part of it but I think you were supposed to at that point. I read for aty prompt 41 goodreads choice awards. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

This book wasn‘t as good as I thought it‘d be. I thought there were too many characters and it skipped around a lot. The main characters I liked though. I ended up rating it three stars. It was a good book and nice to read something different. It just won‘t end up being one of my favorites. Read it for prompt #30 a book featuring an elderly character. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

I read this for the ATY challenge prompt #20 - a book featuring indigenous people of a country. I picked a small book for their prompt because I didn‘t see anything that interested me. For being a short book the characters were really well developed. I was interested in it as far as to figure out what happened to him but the book was a little too dark and edgy for me. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

This was a great audiobook. I rated it 5/5 stars. It was fun learning about her and living in the White House. I slipped it into my ATY challenge for prompt #21 - a book from a poll that was either a close call or polarizing. #aty2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

The book started out as a quaint book. It was easy to read. The last quarter to a third of the book, it just got weird. I‘m also not sure what to think of the ending. I read it for the ATY prompt - a book about books prompt #12 #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

I read this on a whim. Dennis Quaid was the reader and I‘m not a fan of his voice but he actually did a really good job with it. I haven‘t read a thriller in awhile and it was a nice break from what I‘ve been reading. It was a fun book and I wanted to finish it so much that I read the last few chapters in the physical book. I read it for ATY prompt book with a mostly black cover. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

I have been taken a break from social media because we've been busy busy busy the last month, but there's always time for books.
I'm working my way through the "A song of ice and fire" series for the #ATY2019 and my own #chunkster challenge. I've read them 7 years ago, but they are definitely word a reread!

rretzler I want to reread them but I‘ve been holding off until Winds of Winter is published. I‘m beginning to wonder if that will ever happen. 😔 7mo
Marina_h @rretzler yeah, I'm wondering the same! I did consider if it would be better to wait and hope Winds of Winter came out soon, but it doesn't look likely. It's such a shame 7mo
