BarkingMadRead @TheBookHippie I tried finding a theater curtain for the end of the #rafflesshow but I didn‘t want anyone thinking the book was over 🤣🤣 3w
Bookwormjillk RIP Raffles. It‘s murder for sure. 3w
ravenlee Absolutely murder. And worse, he set up somebody else to do it unknowingly. 3w
Clare-Dragonfly I always wonder in this chapter what a doctor would prescribe for these symptoms in the modern day. 3w
Bklover Murderer! And I loved how he tried to convince himself that he was doing the right thing. 3w

Coming Clean | Kimberly Rae Miller
post image

Growing up in an obsessively clean house, it‘s hard to imagine how difficult it was for Kim being raised by hoarders in papers, sludge, bugs and with non-working toilets & showers. Shiver. Also their poor pets.

It‘s unfortunate to have a parent, really two, that severely mentally ill, and I can see why Kim has nightmares and PTSD as an adult. A brave #parentchildmemoir. She‘s one tough lady, and a good #audiobook narrator! #booked2020 4⭐️

blank Sounds interesting! Stacked! 3y
Megabooks @laurenslibrary 👍🏻👍🏻 it‘s on kindle unlimited if you have that. 3y

BarbaraTheBibliophage Great pick. I‘ve seen this many times and wondered if I could stomach it. 3y
Crazeedi Sounds like a hard one to read 3y
Megabooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi Her childhood was very difficult, but before middle school, she didn‘t really see it that way. The most difficult part to read was high school and her suicide attempt when she almost couldn‘t afford to go back to college. Her young adulthood seemed positively exhausting, going between career and helping her parents. My new notebook has a difficulty scale where 1 is extremely complex and 5 is simple. This is a 3. 3y
Cinfhen I was wondering the same thing @BarbaraTheBibliophage thanks for the longer explanation, Meg! 3y
Megabooks @Cinfhen You‘re welcome! How are you doing? I‘ve been off social media the last few days and feel out of touch! 3y
Cinfhen I was going to ask you the same thing!!!!I‘m fine / how about you??? Things calmer now? I finished Yale Needs Women/ I LOVED it!!! 3y
Megabooks @Cinfhen things are calmer. I didn‘t sleep last night, like at all - 0 hours, so I‘m trying to go to bed earlier tonight. We‘ll see... I‘m glad you like Yale Needs Women. I thought it was great. I‘m currently listening to this, which I‘m not sure you want to with an 18 year old son. (The demo in the book is 16-22.) I‘m only mildly surprised by her findings. 3y
Cinfhen I‘m not sure I‘m ready for that one yet 😬this one at home is STILL my baby 👶🏼 #IgnoranceIsBliss 🙄 3y
Megabooks @Cinfhen Attempt one at sleep failed. 👎🏻 I don‘t think I‘d want to know if I were you either. 😳 3y
Cinfhen 😱I feel so bad that you can‘t fall asleep! Insomnia is terrible 3y
Megabooks @Cinfhen Thanks!! I go through phases of it. It was much harder when I was working. At least now I can sleep during the day. I‘ve tried all kinds of meds, but none of them work for me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3y
L_auren I was a big fan of this one!! Highly recommend her second book Beautiful Bodies!!! 3y
Megabooks @L_auren I‘ll have to check it out! 3y

#IgnoranceIsBliss until it's broken. For then adulthood comes and makes the fantasy a moral dilemma. 😛 #Booktober
