I got behind on book reviews from the past week, so I posted them all today. 😅

I love psychology, and I have a special place in my heart for personality. I loved connecting this book to my own life and people I know. I‘m glad I own it, because I know I will want to reference this book again when I‘m raising kids!

Man, this was a great book. I didn‘t know exactly what to expect, but the story I got was great. I was SO invested in these characters and how their stories ended, and it really made me think and struggle with the moral questions the characters were dealing with.

This was such a thought-provoking book. It was a fascinating premise, and I thought he delivered it well. The science of it wasn‘t too distracting from the storyline, even if I had no idea what was going on a few times. 😂 Overall an amazing book!

I‘ve been busy listening to a few beachy audiobooks, and absent from Litsy. Volunteering is hard work.

👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Absolutely loved this book. It was hilarious—really did make me laugh embarrassingly in public—and was the perfect book for me at this point in my life.

Book number 2 in the series, and I loved it so much more than the first! I‘m so glad I stuck it out and kept reading the series, because I really liked this book. A lot more action, exciting plot, interesting characters, and overall fun to read. I still don‘t like the audiobook narrator, and the characters are undoubtedly flawed, but I‘m really looking forward to the next books.

I spent pretty much all of my sleep time last night reading this, so I guess I do still like this series. Onwards with the reread/catch up.

Wow. This book was a bit of a whirlwind for me. It took me a while to get into it—petty parent drama, ugh—but it was so engaging. I just got sucked into it, and I couldn‘t put it down until I‘d read the whole story. The balance of petty drama and serious problems was amazing, and I loved the double mystery of an unknown killer AND victim. I was really impressed with this book!

The group ends up in yet another realm they've never been to. This one was a little tough because there were a lot of Chinese-influenced bits - names, words, customs, etc. - that I wasn't familiar with. It was definitely interesting, with some new and exciting information. Can't wait to see what happens in the next one.
