I enjoyed this - the writing flows nicely, the characters are well fleshed out and the pace is good, though i was expecting a more unexpected outcome (so in a way, it was unexpectedly expected?) Anyway, a good read!

Thanks to #NetGalley for helping me discover this #NewToMeAuthor- I loved this dual timeline thriller. The tension builds steadily, with a plot that takes some genuinely unexpected turns! I loved it! And I sure hope that this isn‘t an accurate picture of #ModernLove... #MayMadness #MayMovieMagic

Clwojick This one looks go good! I have it on NetGalley too, so I‘ll need to read it soon 😉 4mo
TorieStorieS @Clwojick I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! I think it hits the bookstore shelves next Tuesday! 😊👏😊 4mo
Cinfhen Up next for me!!! Starting tonight!!! 4mo

3⭐️. I can see why teens would enjoy it. Not for me though.

Clwojick ♥️ this one was good, but a little heartbreaking. 4mo
Cortg I loved the 80's references. My daughter read it in middle school. I told her to ask me if she had any questions, her only question was “Who is Peter Gabriel and what songs does he sing?“ I had to introduce her to Say Anything. 4mo
Samplergal @Cortg 😂😂😂. I liked the eighties references as well, although I was raising a kid and working full time then. So...some of those flew by me in my fatigue. 😂 4mo
Librarybelle I‘ve had this on my to read list for awhile...the YA librarians I know talk about it a lot! 4mo

I could wait no longer for my bookclub‘s November ‘19 pick so I read Where the Crawdads Sing. I liked it! And credit to the author for being more creative in a title than The Marsh Girl. #NewToMeAuthor #MayMadness

Clwojick Ooo. I‘m loving that Nicholas Sparks collection in the background too! 4mo
marleed @Clwojick Haha - I was trying to square off my photo but didn‘t have any North Carolina prompts. And then, oh yes I do! My Nicholas Sparks collection! 4mo

marleed @rather_be_reading The setting of this book convinced me to slow down and enjoy it. 4mo

Please read this book. Buy it tonight and start it ASAP. Each and every one of us should read this and live it. #valueable 6 ⭐️s out of five. It‘s not pleasant, but like some other things we need for our health, this too is required. #mayMadness. #NewToMeAuthor. #2

This was the best political book of the trump “ presidency”. This one focuses more on the congressional races. It really discusses the history of how we got here and the back stories to some of the politicians that will stop at nothing to continue their power in DC. #MAYMADNESS #NEWTOMEAUTHOR

Anna40 Cool! I didn't see that you had read and reviewed this book. Is it difficult to read if you don't know much about US politics? The authors were at Books in Bloom but I missed their book signing (was just a few minutes late). I saw/heard some of their panel discussion but with a 5 year old sitting next to me it was hard to focus. Next year I'll leave my son at home:). 4mo
Samplergal @Anna40 I‘m not sure how to answer your question as I‘m really quite a political junkie. I think it would be educational but if you‘re international it may be more difficult. I loved the book. I think it would be worth a try. 4mo
Anna40 Ok. If I have questions, can I post them here? 🙄 4mo
Samplergal Of course! 4mo
