BIG plans for #SeptemberTBR 😏
But I have some prompts to help.
There There is the Tacoma Reads book, and Tommy Orange is coming to town, so ✅
Tacoma‘s Extreme Reader Challenge is running a readathon AND a silent reading party, so that will help ✅
I must read 13 TBR books to keep on track for #MountTBR - Olympus ✅
Roughneck is a graphic novel - quick read ✅
I‘m half done with the Ahlborn ✅
And I am bound & determined to finish my #botmbacklog

The_Real_Nani I want to read this book! Have you read Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich? That‘s what this title and description makes me think of. 2mo
KyrstinElizabeth Nickeled and Dimed is great! 2mo

On a happier note, this is a beautiful historical fiction novel! It spans from 1882 to 1964 across the US and in the Galápagos Islands.

What captured me the most in Frances‘s amazing journey was the different relationships she had and how they wove together to make her whole. In life, there is sorrow, joy, and compromise between the two. Amend captured that perfectly!

I guess my brief flirtation with going back to reading thriller/suspense novels is over! It‘s just not my genre. I said if I could put this down for 24 hours, I‘d bail. Now, I‘m involved in three other books I‘m enjoying more. 🤷🏻‍♀️ This #botmbacklog is headed to the library sale!

IamIamIam I love thrillers but sometimes the market gets swamped with mediocre books because a genre is popular. Sorry this didn't work out for you!! 2mo
Reviewsbylola I have read one of her books and wasn‘t impressed, which was a bummer because I met her at Ohioana and she‘s so sweet! 2mo
Reviewsbylola Actually, this is the one I read! 2mo
Megabooks @IamIamIam I will be the first to admit I‘m picky about thrillers. It‘s a genre I read rarely. I much prefer ones that veer more on the mystery side, but I think I had read too many in a row. 2mo
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola I noticed it was set in south central Ohio, and I always appreciate a book set in the flyover! So cool that you met her!! This just wasn‘t doing it for me, but it could‘ve been like bingeing on candy after Halloween. This was the one snickers too many! 😂 2mo

I will admit to being super picky about thrillers. That said, I found a lot of things in this book nonsensical and unbelievable. And can I read one thriller with a sober, mentally stable heroine??

Still it was an easy, interesting read. 3⭐️

#botmbacklog #bfcr3 #bfc #goteam @wanderinglynn @Emilymdxn (I‘m a gaining on you 😉😉) book 6/28

Bette I really wanted a stable, sober heroine too. It can be such a cop out in order to blur things. 😐 2mo
Megabooks @Bette 100% agree! 2mo
Emilymdxn I get frustrated with the exact same things about thrillers so much - it‘s such a pity when I CAN really love thrillers when they‘re well done but it hasn‘t happened to me recently. And you‘ve read so much! I better get reading in case you catch me 2mo

Megabooks @Emilymdxn I‘m a bit weird in that sometimes I enjoy these mediocre thrillers more than the ratings would make it seem. Like I think even if it‘s a big, popular book, I find it fun trash. Does that sound weird?? About to finish one! Keep reading!! (edited) 2mo
plemmdog The author has also had his share of controversy, including allegations of plagiarism 2mo
Megabooks @plemmdog Yes 😬 I read the New Yorker article. 2mo
DivineDiana I also rated it a so-so. 😉 2mo
Megabooks @DivineDiana 😉😁 2mo

Not really enough clues to be a mystery. Not really enough suspense-building/fear to be a thriller. But such a page turner! I had the same feelings about Final Girls. 3⭐️ #bfcr3 #bfc #botmbacklog
