Welp, this is not shaping up to be what you‘d call a good book. I‘m 68 pages in and the sentence structure is rather annoying. There are a lot of short broken sentences. It reminds me of a Cormac McCarthy novel but without the proper cadence. We‘ll see in the end but I‘m losing hope. #readathon #spookathon

Spending my Saturday sick in bed with a good book. #spookathon

bookcollecter I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. Is the book helping your convalescence? 8mo
Cadyly It‘s a good distraction so far. 😀 8mo

Okay, so I suck at 24 hour #readthon. I finished my first book and I gotta say, I really enjoyed it. The different narratives were interesting and I liked the idea of a Groundhog Day that went crazy. This was my fourth challenge for #spookathon too. I think I might go clean the bathroom and take a bath. My back is sore from all of this lying around.

I‘m on Chapter 19 but not sure how I feel about this one. Right now, the writing style seems both too much and not enough. #spookathon

readordierachel I bailed on this one 🙊 8mo
FlowerFairy @readordierachel I‘m trying hard to stick with it, but not certain I will. Something needs to happen soon or I‘m gonna nope this one. 8mo

Mehso-so

Finally finished this book on my break today. It was definitely not a thriller like I thought it would be for #Spookathon but I loved the simple nod to how grief moves though people and a family. Yet, there was a weird part in the end I wasn‘t fond of at all and I understand how many people complained that the story moved very slowly. So I‘m on the fence about who/when I would recommend people read it. #TheLovelyBones #AliceSebold

NeedsMoreBooks I loved this book although I agree it is slow. The whole plot and the treatment of grief is poignant. 8mo
Phantasma.Maddie @NeedsMoreBooks I totally understood why it was slow and I got that part and really wasn‘t bothered about it like some people were, I just really didn‘t like the switching bodies with Ruth part. I found it distracting to the plot. Did you like it? 8mo
NeedsMoreBooks I liked the book overall but the Ruth part was a bit weird. 8mo

Phantasma.Maddie @NeedsMoreBooks I really think that part is what made it a so-so for me and made me feel weird about recommending it. Like ANYONE with grief I think would love this book, but then thinking their loved ones were inhabiting other bodies puts a weird spin on it. I thought Ruth‘s character overall was an odd one and I connected so much about some parts of her and others not at all. 8mo
Phantasma.Maddie @NeedsMoreBooks who was your favorite character? 8mo
NeedsMoreBooks @Phantasma.Maddie I liked Susie, Buckley, and Holly. Had read it when it had first released. Time for a re-read 😊 8mo

Absolutely stunning artwork in this one! I just finished the first half, and am really enjoying it so far. Unfortunately my old lady eyes are straining with the small panel writing, so I‘m taking a little break before picking up with volume 2.

I finished the challenge of reading a book with purple on the cover for #Spookathon with #Ghostopolis by #DougTenNapel and I LOVED this. It was just enough spooky but mostly very heartwarming and fun. I thought the whole thing was very well done! I think EVERYONE would love this book. 💜👻
