The Girls Are All So Nice Here | Laurie Elizabeth Flynn

This gets mixed reviews on here, but I really liked it. Yes, the characters are all awful, but that‘s the whole point. I could quite easily see how the need to ‘fit in‘ could lead to some of the actions of these girls.

I‘m using this for #darkacademia for #booked2022.

Side-eye from Henry as it‘s raining today, so a day in the campervan reading…. He doesn‘t mind though, as he sits with his face pressed up to the heater!

I‘ve been watching a lot of Law and Order lately, so felt like reading some romantic suspense.

Anatomy: A Love Story | Dana Schwartz

Hmm, nope.
Didn't know much about this when I picked it up, I just liked the cover.
Ending was abrupt and dissatisfying.
Not gonna read the sequel (if there'd be one).

1915 Mean Girls
WWI will we or won‘t we
President Wilson tap dances around women‘s suffrage
Our intrepid girl reporter continues to navigate a career and life in tumultuous times

A little Forrest Gump-like at times (Woodrow Wilson AND Thomas Edison AND Margaret Sanger? Really?) but overall an interesting story. MC is a great character around which to build a series, but nothing new seems to be forthcoming?

Yesterday‘s library #bookhaul It was part of my first post COVID errands & required a long nap afterwards. 😵 I went to pick up my holds, The Verifiers & Fire in the Sea & then found the tagged book which I have been wanting to read, a small graphic novel & the plant-centered cookbook.
A good little haul—the 📚🐔 approves.

I bought this ebook on sale today. It‘s set in #Finland by an author from Helsinki. My dear wonderful sister-in-law is from Helsinki so I like to try to learn about where she‘s from.

I‘m not a fan of neat and tidy endings (with many Sherlock Holmes books, you‘ll get the who, what, where, when, why and how for all aspects of a case, no matter how mysterious its beginnings….it IS a detective story after all); I still like the eeriness of the unexplainable. This book definitely kept up the eeriness for its first 200 pages. What atmosphere! Murder and old folklore all blurred together upon a bleak but beautiful Devonshire moor.

Did I stay up way late to finish this one? Yes, yes I did. I‘ll pay for it tomorrow, but I had to find out what happens! Without giving away any spoilers, this #SupernaturalThriller is probably my second favorite by St James…she has this incredible way of building suspense with a multitude of clues and a creep factor that makes me keep all of the lights on as I read. Cannot wait to discuss this next Sunday! #SundayBuddyRead #BBRC #YeahBaby
