I know I initially complained about this large print edition I mistakingly bought. However, while battling a head cold, the large print is fantastic lol #SilverLining

Christmas night reading with my partner in crime. #mojiemoje My hubs got the Christmas plague and has been in bed all day so we had to postpone our celebrations.

Slajaunie So sorry! Enjoy your reading at least! 📖 7mo

Update: We‘re back at the gate in the very closed terminal, waiting for at least 2 hours until a light for the plane arrives from Orlando (we‘re at the Tampa airport). Oh joy.

cariashley Ugh hang in there! Holiday travel is the worst! 7mo
CouronneDhiver Sounds like it‘s time to hit the bar... 🥂 7mo

TrishB @Cinfhen had a really bleugh day.....but I was expecting them tbh! Still haven‘t got any appetite back....but enough whinging!! All will be well I know. 8mo
Cinfhen Sorry ☹️☹️But no appetite means your skinny jeans will fit!!!! 8mo
TrishB @Cinfhen I keep saying that to myself!! 8mo
Cinfhen #silverLining 💛😇 8mo
Billypar I almost picked this up this past Halloween, but when I looked into what it was about, thought I should probably have read more than one other King novel first to get the references. 8mo
TrishB @Billypar I think at least you should probably read The Stand and ‘Salem‘s Lot because there is a lot of cross over from these. 8mo
Billypar @TrishB Oh okay, thanks for that: if it was all of his other books, I would likely never get to it ☺️ 8mo
TrishB @Billypar most of his books have cross overs- but I don‘t think you necessarily have to know to enjoy the book. I‘ve read them all since about 1978 in publication order so I‘m just a bit of a King nerd! 8mo

Look at that happy, relaxing cover! I never expected what came next! This was an excruciating,painful read. It really should have been a DNF, but I just don‘t do that (I‘m weird like that). And I was using it for #booked2018 #beachread ! I heard that her earlier books were good! My only takeaway was due to some Gullah families living on the Island, I googled Gullahs. Now, I know more than just the old children‘s TV show, Gullah Gullah Island! 😉

mcipher She writes some heavy, sad books for sure! 12mo
DivineDiana @mcipher My post isn‘t clear. It was not sad to me at all. I did not connect with the characters and thought the story was ridiculous! 👎🏻 12mo
mcipher Oh, well, that is another reason not to like it! 😂 12mo

4thhouseontheleft Sorry this was a 👎🏽, but at least you finished a prompt! 12mo
DivineDiana @4thhouseontheleft Exactly! 😀 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good review for a ho-hum book! I started learning about Gullah culture with Zara Neale Hurston. Then we spent a week on Hilton Head and actively searched it out. I‘m glad at least that aspect intrigued you! 12mo
DivineDiana @BarbaraTheBibliophage My husband and I are planning an anniversary getaway and considering Hilton Head. Sounds interesting! (edited) 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @DivineDiana We were there last November and loved it. At that part of the year it‘s pretty chill, and there are still plenty of places open. The beaches were empty too. 12mo
DivineDiana @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thank you! Was it still warm? 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @DivineDiana It was very pleasant. A bit of a chill at night and a few showers. But mostly really lovely. 12mo
DivineDiana @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thank you! ❤️ 12mo
Cinfhen Sorry your beach read was a dud😫 12mo
DivineDiana @Cinfhen Oh well! Checked off a #booked2018 category! 😘 12mo

Hurricane season is almost upon us and—even though we‘ll spend most of it in FL— @BookishMarginalia and I are terrified of another water shortage.

Mommamanzi Blah! My least fav time of year. 1y
Sassy_Steph Good luck!! 1y
Tamra I hope you avoid the worst of it! 🤞🏾 1y

Cinfhen Sending love 💕 and a Costco run is always a good plan.....did u buy any books??? 1y
MaureenMc 🙏🤞 1y
WanderingBookaneer @Cinfhen : We are behaving because of the move to FL. No physical book buying until summer. 1y
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! That must be a real restraint for you guys 1y
WanderingBookaneer @Cinfhen : You have no idea! 😂 We are maxed out on loans and holds in the library. One perk is that I am zipping along #MountTBR 1y

I powered through. It was overly dramatic and not romantic or sexy at all. It felt both juvenile (obsessive) and too mature (creepy) at the same time. Maybe I‘m just a prude with a frozen heart. Either way, it was not for me. This is the first time I‘ve returned an #Audible book because I didn‘t like it. 🙅🏼‍♀️ #unpopularopinion

See spoiler below if you want to hear my thoughts on the infamous 🍑.

britt_brooke You guys, this was weird and gross. Did anyone really find this hot?? Jim humping the pie in American Pie was at least funny. This was so uncomfortable. Too far. 1y
Elle_Skeldon Thanks for the heads up on this! I love YA but I really feel gross reading it sometimes and it sounds like this would be one of those times (edited) 1y
KathyWheeler @britt_brooke That scene was definitely weird, uncomfortable, and gross. 1y

Reviewsbylola I could be a prude with a frozen heart too but I will probably never know because I‘m for sure skipping this. 1y
MyNamesParadise I didn‘t think the movie was so great either. I knew Elio loved Oliver but didn‘t feel Oliver loved Elio. It hit me as a summer fling more than first love. I haven‘t read the book. 1y
britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola Definitely the right decision! 😆 1y
britt_brooke @MyNamesParadise Definitely felt like one-sided infatuation and a fling. Didn‘t feel like love to me at all. I‘ll def be skipping the movie. 1y
britt_brooke @Elle_Skeldon 👍🏻👍🏻 1y
Lova Thanks for the heads up. I kept seeing it in people‘s lists and was wondering if I should add it. 1y
britt_brooke @Lova I swear, it seems like I‘m the only person who didn‘t love this. The recent hype got me. 1y
BookishMe Wow! I never thought I'd see this rating for this hyped - book... Always refreshing to read unpopular opinions ;D 1y
britt_brooke @BookishMe Have you read it? There are some amazing reviews out there. I swear, I never do well with hyped up books. You‘d think I‘d learn!! 1y
Elle_Skeldon Lol @britt_brooke that was supposed to say feel ‘gross‘ not gods. HahHa I was late coming from break and just hit send! I‘m going to fix it now. 1y
britt_brooke @Elle_Skeldon 😆👍🏻 1y
shaynarae @BookishMe Same! I loved the book (and the movie), but I appreciate differing opinions as well. 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @britt_brooke I finished Audio version this afternoon. I was just about to post a Y'all Loved It; I Didn't Review when I saw yours. So glad I waited for Library copy. It was dreadful. IMHO way to much angst and wordy descriptions of obsession. Then there was the 💩 Scene. Eew! I am a firm believer in keeping some mystery in a relationship. 1y
britt_brooke @shaynarae Thank you! 💚 This is why Litsy is the best. We can have different opinions but still be respectful that not every book is for everyone. 1y
britt_brooke @missnavigation YES. 👏🏻 You nailed it. Some things are better left unsaid. Implications can serve well, too. Not every little thing needs to be detailed. Aside from the story, I didn‘t care for the writing either. So overdone. I‘m happy to know I‘m not the only one that didn‘t love it. 1y
emilyhaldi Wow!!!! First pan I‘ve seen of this book! It has me excited tbh- now I MUST read it! 1y
britt_brooke @emilyhaldi I‘ll be waiting to see what you think! 1y
TheLibrarian So disappointing since I had high hopes for it. I give you props for plowing through it; I have yet to pick my copy back up. 1y
britt_brooke @TheLibrarian I‘m still riding on high the fact that Audible actually refunded my credit! #silverlining Maybe you‘ll like the rest of it. I just didn‘t like the story or how explicit it got at times. 1y
jillrhudy As a frozen-hearted prude from way back there was never any chance of my reading this! 1y
britt_brooke @jillrhudy 😆🙌🏻💙 1y
youneverarrived I absolutely love this book but I agree that scene was cringe 🙈 1y
britt_brooke @youneverarrived Total cringe! 🍑😵 1y
Jess7 Personally I don‘t like reading about explicit sex scenes in books, and usually skim those parts, so the way you‘re describing this definitely has me less inclined to read it. I‘m not a big romance reader anyway. I like flawed characters and books that examine them in a real way, but based on your review this probably isn‘t the book for me.. but like @emilyhaldi I almost feel like I have to try reading it just so I can know for myself 😂 1y
britt_brooke @Jess7 I‘m completely with you. I rarely read romance, and explicit sex in books is definitely not what I‘m looking for. I just don‘t need those kinds of details. The hype totally got me here. 😬 1y
