Thanks, #TeamDracula, for bumping this one up my TBR! I‘ve wanted to read it for a while! And it‘s certainly fast-paced with an #Obnoxious villain who is #Missing more of a backstory to explain his brand of evil! There are a few loose ends and implausible leaps that stopped me from really loving this. #AugustABC #AyUpAugust

Eggs Nice double play🤗 6mo

#AugustABC @Eggs

A lot of people loved this book but it is on my obnoxious list. It was a DNF for me!

Kdgordon88 I hated this book with a passion so you are not alone. 6mo
CarolynM Me too. I didn't get it at all. 6mo
TheSpineView @CarolynM Glad I am not alone! 6mo

There were some obnoxious characters in this one: Starr the stripper/alcoholic shrew. Marvel, the mean foster mom. Ingrid, the hostile narcissist. And yet Astrid thrives...

At last year‘s Cheltenham Literature Festival, one of the events I attended was a discussion entitled Heathcliff vs Darcy - Who‘s the Biggest Sh*t? After the cases for both sides had been presented, an audience vote concluded that Heathcliff was by far the biggest sh*t of the two, so I reckon that makes him #Obnoxious.

And, anyway, who doesn‘t want a picture of Tom Hardy (as Heathcliff) in the morning?*


*UK time!

Centique Amen to both 1) Heathcliff being the biggest s*** 2) needing a picture of Tom Hardy at any time of day 😂😂👍 6mo

Day 15 - #Obnoxious #DeathofanObnoxiousTourist #AugustABC

This looks like an interesting murder mystery!
Dotsy Lamb and her friend Lettie are on a group tour of Italy when an obnoxious woman, travelling with her two younger sisters, is murdered in her Florence hotel room. They team up with Marco Quattrocchi, the captain in charge of the investigation, to solve the crime.

Reecaspieces Looks interesting 6mo
Carolyn11215 My honey‘s quote...if it‘s “tourist season” in Santa Fe, why can‘t we shoot them? Comes out of her mouth every time someone crosses the road in front of the car or drives the wrong way down a one way street because they are so enamored of the city‘s beauty and not watching where they are going. :) 6mo
Eggs 🤗👏🏻📚👏🏻🤗 6mo
EadieB @Carolyn11215 That‘s funny! 6mo
