The Family Upstairs | Lisa Jewell

Okay, last review for this morning. Another mixed-feelings read. I did like this one, although it's more “can't look away from the upcoming train wreck“ than it is thriller. There were a few things that just didn't jive for me. But the pacing was good - Jewell has a definite knack for making me think I should read just another chapter... or five. However, I'm not sure I'll pick up the sequel.

TheLudicReader The sequel is garbage. You won‘t be missing anything if you don‘t read it, especially since you didn‘t love this one. 2d
TheAromaofBooks @TheLudicReader - That's what I gathered from other reviews - worth reading if you thought this book was really great, maybe not so much if you felt ambivalent towards this one. And since I'm in the latter category... I just went and found some spoilers instead 😂 1d
TheAromaofBooks @Librarybelle - Do you have a copy? I'd love to send you mine if you don't!! 1d
TheLudicReader I actually loved this one @TheAromaofBooks and the sequel was a big disappointment. 1d
Librarybelle I do have a copy! I think I heard her talk about it virtually and bought it from the bookstore sponsoring the talk. Thanks for the offer! 1d
MatchlessMarie Awesome! I started this one last year I think but it‘s in what I call library purgatory now 😂 might need to return to the train wreck at some point this year lol 14h

March #ReadOrDonate picks.

The Goldfinch was a #Roll100 book for February and I‘m not going to get to it. It‘s time for me to either read it or donate it. (Or both 🤓)

Reunion Pass is another book I‘ve had for a while. It‘s part of a series I love but I‘ve stalled. This should be the motivation I need to read this one and continue the series.

julieclair Perfect reasons for choosing these two as #ReadOrDonate selections! 👍 2d

Bailedbailed

I‘ve been struggling with my #doublespin all month, and I‘m bailing halfway through. It‘s just written for a much younger audience (folks in their 20s), and I‘m in my 40s and not relating well. I think for college-age and just out of college women and NB folks, it could be a good resource on navigating love, work, and friendship while chronically ill. My life is just very different at this point. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

marleed I can often adjust my head for a fictional story written for a younger audience, but much harder to do with real nonfiction advice for a younger audience. 3d
TheAromaofBooks Sometimes a book just isn't the right match. On to the next!! 3d

Megabooks @marleed Yes, rn I'm reading fiction featuring a college student, and it's fine, but nonfiction advice directed at them just isn't as applicable! At least I supported a feminist bookstore in buying this. 3d
Megabooks @puddlejumper this is also a #roll100 choice for me. 3d
willaful Do you think it would be a good read for someone in college with mental health issues?
3d
Megabooks @willaful It tends to be more about physical illness than mental illness, so I would say no. 2d
willaful @Megabooks Thanks for answering. 1d

Wow! Definitely give this a chance. In the beginning I kept thinking this was out of character for O‘Leary. Such a likable character doing such unlikable things. But, O‘Leary weaves a wonderful (albeit sad) story and ultimately we get our HEA.
This is my one of my February #Roll100 rolled books.

Last year I bailed on this one. I gave it another shot. Not my favorite Hannah book. I‘ve loved all of the others I‘ve read but this one just never seemed to click.

5 ⭐️s
A reread for me. The last time I read it I was in middle school. I was shocked at how much of my memory of it had been hijacked by the films. I‘m curious to see how much I misremember from the following trilogy. 😅 This will always be a very nostalgic story for me. I felt a profound connection to the young woman I was when I first read it and fell in love with Tolkien‘s world. ❤️
This was part of my February #Roll100

lil1inblue I love the last sentence of your review. It really resonated! 😍 6d
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @lil1inblue Aww, I‘m glad! It‘s crazy to think of what my life would be like without LOTR. It‘s such an integral part of who I am that I really think I‘d be a vastly different person without it. 5d

Book 2 was so much better than the first. I‘m really happy I didn‘t bail on this because of my feelings towards book 1. This one had a better thought out plot and wasn‘t bogged down with all sorts of asides.
February #SeasonalCozies read complete! @julieclair

Garabrandtreviews I will admit this is my least favorite of her series. I loved the Books by the Bay series and the Secrets books and scones society 5d
