Enjoyed this. A funny and deeper look at feminist issues (particularly body issues and sexuality) from a different angle. Probably TW: rape, even though i felt like she did a pretty good job of trying to do justice to the issue - she discusses in detail, so it might be too much for some readers. Read on my #nook account, started during #mountTBRreadathon. Have loved her on #GuiltyFeministPodcast as well.

When I first joined Litsy @DebinHawaii posted a 12 days of Christmas challenge about this book. I read the blurb and added it to my TBR.

Yesterday I finished it as part of the #mounttbrreadathon.

Cute, if somewhat unbelievable story. I'd recommend it more as a palate cleanse.

DebinHawaii Glad you enjoyed it--a quick fun palate cleanser for sure! 😀 1y

So, who did The #MountTBRreadathon hosted by @JenlovesJT47 and @Tiffy_Reads ? I tried, but I really only got about 3.5, maybe 4 hours in total. But this is more than usual, I have to say!!

Plus, I finished 2 books! So my new totals are: 11 TBRs of 14 books YTD.

What about you?

AnneCecilie I read 280 p. Finished one book and started on an other. So I'm happy, it was just to much winter sport on the TV 1y
ladyonequestion Managed to finish 3 books, thinking of doing it for a bit longer to get the currently reading pile down! 1y
CSeydel I tried! I finished one owned book, but in the end I mostly read my 2 library books. 1y

JuliaTheBookNerd I finally finished 3 books I had started but had yet to finish, read 2 books start to finish and started another book. All in all I think it was a good readathon weekend for me 😊 58/200 complete 1y
Valink I finished one audio and one physical book, but neither were in my TBR 😂😂 one was from Scribd and the other was borrowed from a friend. I did get about 50 pages into a TBR book though, so I call it a success. Now that we are about to enter April can I count books that were purchased in Jan as “TBR” books? 1y
DivaDiane @Valink Absolutely! 1y
DivaDiane @AnneCecilie Great job! Now that Formula 1 is back on, I have an excuse to read during most of the race on a Sunday! 1y
DivaDiane @ladyonequestion Sounds great! 1y
DivaDiane @CSeydel sounds like a successful readathon! Library books count especially if they have been renewed or the deadline is looming! 1y
AmyG I finished 4 books....which equals probably 1 full book. 1y
Laughterhp I tried to participate, but didn‘t get too much reading done. However, so far this year I‘ve read 5 out of 29 from my mount TBR 😬 (I keep adding books to my mount TBR list that I want to get to) 1y
mrp27 Unfortunately I was unable to participate but I wish I could have! 1y
jfalkens I only read about 100 pages. 1y
Pamwurtzler I keep telling myself to put my phone down, but not very successfully. I finished 2 books - one from the Mount TBR on my kindle and one that wasn‘t. 1y
DivaDiane @JuliaTheBookNerd Wow! Well done! 1y
DivaDiane @AmyG That‘s Great! I have a lot of unfinished books on my TBR at the moment... 1y
DivaDiane @Laughterhp Oh, it‘s so hard! I‘m a mood reader, so choosing in advance usually doesn‘t work. 1y
DivaDiane @mrp27 Ah well, maybe next time! Keep on plugging away! 1y
DivaDiane @jfalkens That‘s still pretty good! 1y
DivaDiane @Pamwurtzler That, right there is probably the single most often reason that I don‘t read as much as I‘d like. Finishing one book is still finishing one book! 1y
BibliophileMomma I think you mean me.🙋🏻‍♀️ I co hosted the swap with @JenlovesJT47 I read 3 books ( 1 graphic) and started a 4th. Thanks for joining in the fun! 1y
jfalkens @DivaDiane thanks 😊 1y
Andrew65 Just the wrong weekend for me as I was travelling and preparing for travelling for much of it.😩 (edited) 1y
DivaDiane @Tiffy_Reads Oh no!! I‘m sorry! I meant to go back and double check that because I wasn‘t convinced, but I forgot. Great reading, though! Thanks for initiating that! 1y
DivaDiane @Andrew65 Oh no! Traveling means lots of time to read for me! But I suppose you were driving yourself, huh? 1y
Andrew65 @DivaDiane Yes I was driving and using audiobooks whilst I was driving, but was not a book from my TBR. The good news is I am now up to 7 books from my #TBRChallenge and it is climbing slowly. (edited) 1y
DivaDiane @Andrew65 Well, that is a respectable number! 1y
Andrew65 @DivaDiane Getting better and got at least another couple targeted over the next week or two. (edited) 1y
SleepyDragon I only ended up reading for about 1.5 hours, but it was enough to finish my one book. But I don't think I'd call it a success. 1y

This book was amazing - I'm not even mad that its the only book I finished during the #mounttbrreadathon.

But, my husband has been telling me about the plot of the movie, and I am so ANGRY, bc they changed everything! Main plot points are almost all different, and different characters even have different powers! Why?!? 😣😲😠

I dont plan to watch the movie now, knowing they chopped up a book that would have made a fantastic movie!

I could not put this down. Tense thriller with elements of the supernatural. This is a story of friendship, the power of the natural world, and magic that has moved through generations. Not quite sure how to characterize it -- Gothic Southern fiction with a historical horror element? Whatever you want to call it, it was a very compelling read. #mounttbrreadathon

Bookishthoughts This book is a very emotional one. Its the only one I've read of his. Hush is on my TBR I'd it's half as good as The Last Child...in in for some tears 1y

Megabooks @CSeydel mine‘s a guy who ODed and got arrested 3 months later 😔 (edited) 1y
CSeydel I‘m sorry to hear that 😞 One afternoon I pulled up our street after picking the kids up at school & there‘s armed officers surrounding the house 4 doors down. Guys standing on the driveway with rifles pointed at the front door. About 11 patrol cars in the street. Nobody got shot, thankfully. 1y
Megabooks @CSeydel Yikes! I‘m glad no one was shot! That would be frightening to me. 1y
CSeydel It was extremely frightening!! 1y

This was a beautifully illustrated book and a hauntingly sad story. I didn't know much about this before jumping into it, but I couldn't put it down. The ending was not what I was expecting! Recommended for fans of graphic novels and ghost stories. 4⭐️

P.S. I'm shocked I actually got through 5 books this weekend for the #mounttbrreadathon ! 😱
