Just NO! This is a definite no for me. I did not like this book. Let me say I had no issue with the taxidermy or the suicide. But the descriptions about how dirty Jessa was were too much along with Brynn. There were too many details and not enough aha moments. The characters are all confused leaving the reader confused. Jessa treats her mother as a non person. She‘s sleeping with her brother‘s wife.

kindergartenkat I was wondering about your rating of this one. It‘s been on my TBR. I wondered why you didn‘t like it. I‘m glad you shared here! 2mo
jb72 @kindergartenkat Yeah I was unsure how I was going to rate it at first (1 or 2 stars). I haven‘t really thought of my full review yet for GR. I normally don‘t like to “hate” on a book, but honestly this book is just not very good. 2mo

Been looking forward to this book but it took me less than a minute to bail. I can‘t listen to the author‘s voice. 🙉🤦🏾‍♀️ Off to reserve a print copy. #bailed #narrationmatters #nope

Megabooks Ooo! Glad I went print with this! It‘s a good book. Authors reading their books can go either way. 6mo
Kaila-ann Glad I got a print copy. I‘m about 3/4 of the way through and it‘s pretty fascinating. 6mo
Bookish.SAM Oh no!!! The narrator totally makes (or breaks!) a book for me. Especially frustrating when it‘s a book you‘re really looking forward to... I feel for ya 😕 (edited) 6mo

lele1432 Lol! A bad narrator can really ruin your reading experience! I have a physical copy but have yet to dive in. 6mo
SW-T Narrators make all the difference on audiobooks! 6mo
Chelleo Yeah, bummer but I have no patience for a bad narrator. @Megabooks @Kaila-ann @bookish.sam @lele1432 @SW-T 6mo
Susannah Same! I would have finished this book months ago if it weren‘t for the narrator‘s (author‘s! 😳) voice. I‘m super sensitive to audiobook narrators; they really can make or break a book. 4mo

I found a poem by Leav on the day of the breakup that brought me so much clarity... I've been compulsively consuming the rest of her poetry (at least what I can get my hands on) since. I'm a bit more on the "misadventure" side of things, but her writing truly strikes a chord in my broken heart.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Glad this is bringing you some comfort - a good find at the right time ❤️ (edited) 6mo

Well. This sounded weird in a good way but was actually weird in a i-value-my-time-more-than-this way. Alas! This is the first time in years I've #dnf a book (instead of shelving it for later). It was that rough. #mommyreads #nope

That Day

I remember our highs in hues,
like the color of eyes
as the sun was setting;
the pale of his hands in mine,
and the blue of his smile.

I remember our sorrows in shades,
like the gray of the shadows,
which loomed that day,
and the white in his lie
when he promised to stay.

~Lang Leav

Where the Amazon original series fails, I had hoped the book would deliver. I'm so disappointed. Life is too short to read a bad book. I love the idea--this surmises the Reich had won the war--the US is divided between Japan and Germany. The Amazon series has plot holes to drive a Mac truck through. Phillip K. Dick annoyingly verbose. #nope #canteven
