This is not a doorstopper, it's a trousers stopper. 😂😂😂

Found this new pair of jeans at the back of my wardrobe. I bought it four years ago and it was a bit tight. Well, now I need to alter it. Just means I have to find a good audiobook to listen to while mending.

I missed posting this on Sunday! We‘re on to Week 5 of the latest #LiteraryCrew #buddyread . I‘ve enjoyed seeing everyone‘s posts and reading the reviews of those who have finished. I‘m behind in the readings, so I really hope to catch up by the weekend. Anyone care to share anything about the week 4 segment, or even a comment in general about the book?

Laughterhp I‘m so behind on reading this book! 3d
Jerdencon Wish I had seen this was the book sooner - sounds like a great book and right up my alley. Just requested it from the library! 3d
Librarybelle Not to worry, @Laughterhp ! And join in when you can, @Jerdencon ! It‘ll be great to have you reading with us again! 3d

My latest buddy read was this beauty! A great blend of sci-fi and fantasy, a slow-burn romance (always the best!), with deceptions, plots and secrets! 💛 And just look at that gorgeous Fairyloot cover! 😍

I finished the #buddyread for #teamslaughter! Didn‘t love the narrator on the audio, had some issues with language used (especially regarding the child with special needs) and the overall female characters but I did enjoy the surprise reveals and twists to the story. Carrying the “triptych” theme with a three act story was clever too. 11pts - black cover. #scarathlon #bbrc #growup #neverendingseries

kamoorephoto I‘m having trouble with the writing style, I guess??! The character? 5d
Sarahreadstoomuch @kamoorephoto yes, I know what you mean. Is it dated writing? Are the characters harder to like on purpose? Even Will, who I think you are supposed to be sympathetic but he still has conflicting character traits. Maybe not supposed to root for anyone? Well, John... but that‘s almost secondary. 4d
kamoorephoto @Sarahreadstoomuch That might be what it is: conflicting character traits, not being able to like the people, and also feeling wholly uncomfortable with some of these situations and settings too. I can imagine Decatur and Atlanta and it‘s feeling too triggering. I can also I usually don‘t have too much of an issue with that putting me off reading but right now it is 😟 3d

I really enjoyed this thriller, esp the beginning, setting up the story. It held my attention, Will and Angie were interesting characters. #teamslaughter #scarathon @Clwojick #buddyread

I ended up finishing this at the end of last month and really enjoyed it. There is so much to think about and wrap my brain around because this is the first time reading it and luckily I wasn‘t spoiled.

To get a better understand on my thoughts, here‘s my goodreads review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2635049267

The first third of the story was outstanding, the set up and tone really drew me in. From there, it floundered a bit, but I mainly knock stars from my review for the portrayal of women (the poorly narrated audiobook may have contributed to this), implicit racial bias, and constant use of the r-word when referring to a child with an intellectual disability. Published in 2006, I expect better.

4thhouseontheleft Sorry #teamslaughter, I did not do a good job of sticking to the #buddyread schedule! #scarathlon @Clwojick (edited) 1w
Sarahreadstoomuch I haven‘t quite finished yet, but I agree with the points you‘ve made. I also cannot stick to the schedule! 1w
Clwojick OH no! I am still in the first third of the book,, and still really enjoying it! No worries about not sticking to the schedule. You're not the first. 😂 +11 points! 1w

4thhouseontheleft @Clwojick It‘s definitely suspenseful, and I will probably continue in this series (after cycling back and reading the Grant County books), but probably not on audiobook. The male narrator trying to narrate the female characters was so bad! Just checking: you‘ve got all the points for my other posts, right, even if you don‘t comment? 1w
4thhouseontheleft @Sarahreadstoomuch 😄 I can‘t tell if my dislike stems mainly from how the audiobook narrator made the characters sound, so I do plan on reading the next in the series, but not on audio. Inflection and tone can really change how things come across! (edited) 7d
Clwojick Yes! I believe so. I have your total currently at 101. 7d
4thhouseontheleft @Clwojick sounds good to me! 7d
intothehallofbooks @4thhouseontheleft On circling back to Grant County—Kathleen Early is amazing at narrating those books! Just FYI in case audio really works for you. I‘m struggling sticking to the schedule too. I‘ve already read ahead but I haven‘t quite finished yet. 6d
