Sorry I‘ve been so absent, Litsy! I need to get back to posting all the time. I did create a #BookTok the other weekend, and I brought back my #SundaysInBedWith meme. This morning I‘m spending time with the tagged book because it‘s this month‘s Fountain of Youth book club pick, so l‘ll be leading a discussion on it later this morning. I liked it, even more after reading the author‘s note at the end.

I haven‘t been posting reviews for them, but my #BookTok / #KU shameless behavior has continued unabated. Here‘s my cleansing post to review the last few all at once… individual books and ratings in comments, if you are so inclined.

1. Did I read a different book from everyone? 5-alarm dumpster fire

2. Ugh, so bad

3. If I‘d known about book 2, wouldn‘t have started

4. Not as bad as it looks?

5. Pure smut novella

6. Ok fine

7. Just dumb

KristiAhlers I didn‘t like Lilac at all. I liked Credence but I wouldn‘t have spent $ on it 😂. Like you I use and abuse my KU program. To be fair I have found some really good romance authors that were new to through it. Just have to poke around a bit. Anne Malcom is one of my favorites and she‘s on KU. 2w
LeahBergen I don‘t know which title is worse: Asking For It or Losing It. 🤣 I do like the sound of The Pool Boy, though. 🤣 2w
sprainedbrain @KristiAhlers Lilac sounded perfect (rock stars, RH)! But omg the main character drove me nuts, and the ceaseless, pointless fighting… Credence I actually bought on Audible last year, but Booktok made me finally read it. 😂 2w
sprainedbrain @LeahBergen I put those two next to each other on purpose. 😂 If you are interested (I recommend that you NOT be), the sequel to Asking for It is called Begging for It and I will not be putting myself through that. 2w
LeahBergen 🤣🤣 2w

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick At least The Pool Boy cover is visually pleasing. 2w
janeycanuck I can‘t lie - I‘m tempted to witness the five-alarm dumpster fire for myself… 🤣😂🤣 2w
sprainedbrain @janeycanuck please report back if you do! 😂 2w

BookBr Thank you for reading so we don‘t have to😂 2w

This book was just so beautiful. There were so many wonderfully written passages throughout the book. The characters and storyline were just perfect. It really makes us think about our lives and how the affect the world around us. Definitely check this book out.

Sour Candy: A Novella | Kealan Patrick Burke

Book 47 Popsugar RC
✅A #BookTok recommendation: Sour Candy by Kealan Patrick Burke ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

WOW! I loved this book!
It‘s a horror, but not the type of horror full of blood and monsters, but the one that makes you feel uneasy and anxious. That makes you think, doubt the MC and feel for him at the same time. Is he descending into madness? Is it real? When you finally know what‘s going on, you can‘t help but think WTH.

WJCintron LOVED the ending, so much! I was so afraid to reach the ending fearing it would ruin it for me, but it didn‘t disappoint. It made it even better. A smirk drew on my face and I was content. Perfect ending for me.
Burke managed to develop the main characters so well in such a short amount of time, it‘s crazy. I did felt for Phil since the beginning. He won me on that first scene at the candy aisle. MORE ⬇

WJCintron The descriptions were so vivid, I swear I could hear that boy screaming bloody murder. I would have been as desperate as him. I would have left the supermarket, no questions asked. BTW, no spoilers, but I loved his references to the emotions: “relief” would have meant the same to me in that situation.
The book is short, but packed with horror and you can‘t stop reading because you want to know more. MORE ⬇

WJCintron The chapters are short, which I love, plus the titles are catchy, giving you a sense of what‘s gonna happen, so you keep on reading. Each of them have a punch and something you didn‘t see coming.
The novel is easy to understand, and the characters are relatable. Only the female cop, annoyed me to the bone. Which is also good, ‘cause it means she was well crafted.

WJCintron I didn‘t hate the kid. I don‘t know if that‘s weird, but I loved the voice the author gave him. It fit perfectly with the way he described him. I loved his sweet sarcasm, and innocence/intelligence at the same time. The perfect combination to make us fear him. Not the cliched baby talk or possessed type of character.

WJCintron Overall, this is a great book every horror/thriller fan should read. Kealan Patrick Burke did an amazing job setting the atmosphere and making us feel as if we were in Phil‘s shoes. I felt uneasy, lost, depleted from my emotions to the point of not caring at all and then, he managed to strike me with all of them at the same time, which made me question so many things. What would I do in his situation?

WJCintron At a point I asked myself: Did I really have that thought in my mind just now? I mean, I‘m a mother. And crazy as it is, he manages to make me feel for the kid. What?!
That‘s what a great writer does! It makes us feel and question things, even when what‘s happening is totally bizarre.
I would love to see this turned into a movie.
Thanks, Kealan Patrick Burke, for the ride! It was a crazy one!
A PLUS is, the author is such a nice person!
