I‘ve got to #ThankLitsy (#LitsyAwards ?) for bringing this book to my attention. This is such a worthwhile listen because as crazy awful as these stories are, they are real and they are happening now. The authors have a way of telling these stories that convey their seriousness but also the humor (in a “if you can‘t laugh you‘ll cry” way) also, Amber is very funny as a rule. Loved the audio, but grabbed the print for pictures/evidence!
I put off reading this book for the longest time simply because I adored the movie. More often the book is so much better, but I didn't want anything to ruin the movie experience for me. This adaptation was pretty close, and the changes that were made, made the movie all the better.

While this wasn't my favorite by this author, it's clear she's becoming a favorite of mine. I'm really impressed by her character development. It's not like she takes an idea, a story, and then creates characters, to me, it seems she creates the characters, then tells their story. A hard thing to do.

Bk9 of January2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done too! This pretty little hardcover has been on my #MountTBRShelvesOfDoom since it was released in 2018🤭So glad I finally read it, it was a lot darker than I was expecting. A female line of witches on an island in the Salish Sea learn that the price of using dark magic is blood & pain. Pitting mother against daughter it‘s very grim but also beautifully written. #BookspinBingo #Pop22 #BeatTheBacklist2022👇
