Ugh... L.A. art types & art glamorizing dead women & tortured writing like “decadent as a 24 karat cast of a cat testicle”... Nope!

Megabooks What?!? That‘s ummm really weird. 2w
Sweettartlaura @Megabooks yup it is... and that‘s just the first paragraph 😳. I even gave it 4 full chapters. But nope, not falling for it. Not when I have 11 books left for my Mount TBR challenge 🙌🏻 2w
marleed Yep, I didn‘t like this one either - I should have bailed. 2w
Sweettartlaura Thanks for the validation @marleed 👍🏻 2w

Pickpick

It was pretty good! Set in LA in 2003 - before iPhones & before social media - before selfies! An artist goes missing on the day of her new gallery show called, Still Lives, where the art is all self portraits of her dressed up as famous murdered women like the black dahlia and Nicole Brown Simpson. It has a smart female protagonist and supporting characters. Would make a great book club read too!

Mehso-so

For kicks, I keep up with the Reese Witherspoon bookclub, and some early picks remain on my TBR. Although this book has less than stellar reviews, I‘m committed to my goal. ...I didn‘t not like it, but didn‘t care about the MC. Also, it‘s weird the author questions the motives of the Still Lives artist - creating art based on IRL murdered LA dead women. Because wait, isn‘t the author doing the very same thing in the writing of this book!?

Frecks-Booklover4life I like the Reese W book club also! I haven‘t read all of them but the handful that I have , I‘ve really enjoyed. This is one that I have not read. 5mo
marleed @Frecks-Booklover4life It‘s an interesting book to consider. I think I may have liked it more had all the names been fiction. I get how readers could be offended which makes me change my rating from a pick to a so-so. 5mo
BooknerdsLife I love how your book matches with the puzzle 😍💚💙 5mo
marleed @BooknerdsLife Ha - Thanks! That‘s a Charley Harper bird puzzle and I can‘t quite put it back in the box. I set the book down on it earlier this week and laughed at the camouflage! 5mo
BooknerdsLife @marleed Haha yes! Your book totally blends in with the puzzle there😂 Aww you have to get it framed! 😍 5mo
