Pickpick

I picked this one up for #NoShameReadathon - Slasher horror pick

I‘m not a horror person, I‘m such a wimp and I‘m definitely not a slasher film person! So I was definitely hesitant. Definitely a bit gruesome at the end.

However, I really liked this book and couldn‘t put it down. It was also a super quick read.

This was a low pick for me. I‘m kind of over thrillers, but decided to give this one a try.

Cecily is given the opportunity of a lifetime, climb a mountain over 8,000 meters with a team. If she summits, she gets an interview that will help her journalism career. But there is a killer on the mountain. I wasn‘t expecting who the killer was and the twists were good.

Thanks for the tag @EadieB !

1. So-So. I‘m behind on my GR challenge to read 200 books. I‘m only at 95, so I‘m 6 books behind. I‘m completely slacking on #ShelfofShame, doing good at #pop22 and doing okay at #NoShameReadathon and okay at #Booked2022

2. The #ShelfofShame is to read books I already own. Supposed to read 12, haven‘t read 1 😬. But I have been reading my own books not on that list.

TheSpineView At least you are working on already owned. Better than me for sure! Thanks for playing! 1mo

I finally read Wuthering Heights and honestly I think some of the movies are better (especially the one with Timothy Dalton). The book was just so dark and Heathcliff so monstrous. I am glad I finally read it though.

wanderinglynn I‘m not a fan of the book either. 2mo
Nessavamusic I have yet to make it through this one. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks I finally made it through this one thanks to the #PemberLittens' buddy read earlier this year. I was NOT a fan! Early in the book I printed off a little cast of characters/family tree and I've never enjoyed crossing people off as they kipped over quite so much 😂 2mo

I planned TBR for June, here are fantasy/scifi books. My list to choose from :) #SciFiJune

Clwojick I love the Etiquette and Espionage series from Gail Carringer. Hoping to read Soulless for the #NoShameReadathon 2mo
PageShifter @Clwojick That series I haven't read!! But this series by her I have finished and even wanted to read this short-story. I hope you'll enjoy this series as much as I 💞💞 That readathon seems to be unfamiliar to me 🧐 2mo
Clwojick I just heard about it a few days ago, but it‘s been running since the beginning of the year. I decided I had to join in though, since the prompts are all sub genres. 💛 2mo

PageShifter @Clwojick sounds fun :) 2mo

PageShifter @truebookaddict Thank you, I am so excited. Even though I have already edited my TBR sooo many times. But. I hope I'll get some of these read as well, haha 2mo

Looks like I‘m doing pretty good with the #NoShameReadathon challenge so far this year. I‘ve finished 17/25, leaving 8 more to go! I used some sticky notes to jot down some options for the subcategories I have left, since they‘re not ones I‘m super familiar with. @Nessavamusic

Bookwormjillk Sticky notes is a good idea! 2mo
Clwojick @Bookwormjillk Yes! I couldn‘t survive without my stick notes. So handy for bullet journaling and planning layouts or upcoming reading. 🌸 2mo
Nessavamusic Love that, I wish I were better at journaling. 2mo

When Dimple Met Rishi | Sandhya Menon

So nothing really wrong with this one. It‘s just not my genre. I feel a bit uncomfortable reading about teens kissing and making out.

I only read this for #NoShameReadathon - YA romance

It was of course very predictable. I was a bit uncomfortable with her parents trying to marry her off at 18 in a contemporary novel.

I did like that she had passions in web design and really worked at her goals and didn‘t have to change herself.

Nessavamusic It is a cute one. I feel past YA contemporaries too. The older I get the less I can tolerate teen drama. 😉 3mo

When she introduces 15 characters that I‘m supposed to keep track of in the first 5 chapters, I just can‘t. If I miss who‘s POV it is, I‘m completely lost.

I totally forgot someone told me not to listen to this on audio 🤷🏻‍♀️. I needed an audiobook and it was available. Maybe I‘ll try again in print. It was supposed to be my thriller for #NoShameReadathon

Onto the next one.

Bec_lectic Oh crap I just started this one! Hope I can keep up 🤨 3mo

Velvet Was the Night | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I don‘t think I actually liked this book. I listened to it at 2x speed which is usually an indication. Maite was so obsessed with her looks and seemed very childish for her age. I always like Morena-Garcia‘s books for the setting. It was an interesting perspective Mexico in the 70s.

shanaqui Yeah, same experience, didn't love it. I do love that SMG's novels have the Mexican settings and that she has such a range of different story worlds and genres going on. 4mo
Cinfhen I‘ve seen lots of mixed reviews for this book 4mo
