You'll Be the Death of Me | Karen M McManus

I'm a sucker for some YA mystery/suspense type of books. I have yet to read The Cousins and You'll Be the Death of Me but enjoyed reading the others. I find them so quick to get through but also keep me on the edge of my seat and trying to guess what the fuck is going to happen next 😂

This book fell into the same problem as the first book in the series: characters who should definitely know better making really stupid mistakes. And while I liked certain aspects of the mystery in this story, it bothered me that the author decided to go in the direction of letting a couple of real-life murderers slightly off the hook by including a fictional killer who "really" committed many of their crimes.

The Lovely Bones | Sebold, Alice

In this book, fourteen year old Susie Salmon is raped and murdered. She spends majority of the book ‘living‘ in heaven and she is adjusting to life up there. Meanwhile, her family and friends are dealing with loss and tragedy down on earth. Susie watches her family, friends, and even murderer, continue their lives on earth, after that terrible day, as they learn to grieve and move on.

mackenzie.palmarchuk I would recommend this book to a mature young adult audience, due to some parts being graphic and containing sexual content. Also, to anyone who enjoys story‘s that address what life may be like after death and those who don‘t mind a graphic story with come disturbing content. 10h
mackenzie.palmarchuk The point of view used in this book is first person, told through Susie Salmons(the girl who is killed) eyes. However, she is in heaven and can see and know things about all of the characters on earth, so she is an omniscient character. We read and get to hear her thoughts and feelings, as well as those of all she views down on earth. 10h

Reading with the little pup pup. The puppy stage is fun but I'm also really looking forward to when he gets older and hopefully lazy.

Simone St. James writes the best #ghost stories I have ever read, and I have read MANY. She writes the period between WWI & WWII as if she were there, in England, at the time. The atmosphere in this one is more gothic than The Haunting of Maddy Clare, and is reminiscent of Du Maurier‘s work. #paranormal #historical #mystery #murder
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

PatriciaU She has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her books never disappoint. Have you tried any of Sarah Rayne‘s books? Hers writing is similar to St. James. 13h
Arcana @PatriciaU I have not, but thank you for the recommendation! 13h

Trying to stay cool in the middle of a 40°C heatwave with some Nordic noir and a summer fruit salad... Today is day number five and I'm more than ready for this hot weather to be over! 🥵📖🍈🥝🍓🍑🫒

slategreyskies Oh, I know how you feel! Hot weather‘s always tough for me. I‘m in the US, though, and we‘re expecting a foot of snow on Sunday. Wish I could send some your way! :) 2d
BooksAndYarn I don't think I'd survive heat like that. I'll take the 40-60cm of snow we have predicted through tomorrow over those Temps lol 2d
yvo_about_books @slategreyskies I never expected to say this when I was still living in The Netherlands, but I actually miss having snow. 🙈 2d
yvo_about_books @BooksAndYarn I'm definitely not used to this kind of temperatures either! Fingers crossed it's not a sign of what's to come in future summers down here... I never thought I would say this, but I miss having snow. 🙈 2d
