“Its very awkwardness and awfulness made out somehow essentially human. It was one of those rare, poignant, pure moments that encapsulate everything that was wonderful and tragic about life.”

“Having a baby had been like starting a demanding new job and beginning a passionate love affair and moving to a new country with a different language and culture all at the same time. The baby filled her mind, her heart and her senses.”

When Ali and her husband Matt decide to separate, Ali moves in with her best friend, Chrissy. Chrissy talks Ali into using a dating app where she meets Ewan. Chrissy and Ewan go on a date that ends up going badly. The next day, Ali wakes up with blood on her, shoes missing, bruises and she can't remember what happened. She also has a condition where she can no longer recognize faces, even those closest to her. A good thriller!

#GratefulReads - Books Gifted to You: I‘ve never had a reading friend in my day-to-day life space. That‘s why I belong to several book clubs and put energy into Litsy. When one of my co-workers made a bookish comment one day, my heart skipped a beat! ‘OMG, are you a reader?‘ I gushed about books for the next several days and then I bought her a book. Guess what happened next? She bought me one back (the tagged book)! Be still my heart!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Love Moriarty, haven't read this one yet though. 1mo
Megabooks @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego it‘s actually my favorite and I‘m not usually a romance person. 1mo
LiteraryinLititz Yay for a bookish friend IRL!! 1mo

OriginalCyn620 That‘s awesome! 😊📚 1mo
Bookzombie What a great story! 🙂 1mo
Billypar I think about this a lot - how much of a niche hobby it's become. Now even if two readers read wildly different stuff, I feel like they have more in common than two people who watch the same tv shows. 1mo
Reggie This was a lovely post.❤️ 1mo
Crazeedi That is a wonderful story, so glad for you 1mo
Nute @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Megabooks I like her books. This one was a pleasant surprise due to the main character‘s occupation. I thought it was really interesting to do the story with hypnotherapy being thrown in the mix and also the fact that she thought her honey had props because he was “worthy” of having a stalker!😧This girl needed a best girlfriend! 3w
Nute @Hooked_on_books @OriginalCyn620 @Bookzombie @Reggie @Crazeedi Thank you! I‘m so grateful to have my Litsy friends to help fill the void of IRL reading companions!💕 3w
Nute @LiteraryinLititz Yes! She doesn‘t read a lot or even consistently, but when she is reading I am so grateful for her presence in my life. A bookish friend for me...even in the slightest degree - an overflowing heart!💕 3w
Nute @Billypar There is a deep connection at the ‘earthiness‘ of our being related to shared stories. I think that storytelling has always accomplished that. I can‘t imagine the immediate ease of conversation that we would have at our first meeting, Vinny, just because of calling ourselves ‘readers.‘🙂 3w
Megabooks That is a very good point re:stalker! She did need some friends! 3w

This book leaves you on the edge of your seat. The language wisps you away into a world of mystery, love, murder. A story about the dark side of romance.

Eww! Gross! #imanoldprude
Gratuitous sex and violence. Just not a fan of these types of books. I'm glad it is done. #nwc I might have to watch the series on mute. It made me read outside of my comfort zone, but I would blush and hope no one was reading over my shoulder. I need to take a shower. 😳😖😜🙅 On a positive note, the narrator loved literature so many classic works were referred by him.

AkashaVampie I'm sorry I am just seeing this now sweetie. I really need to check the hashtags more often. I am still reading mine so i have that to look forward to!! haha Glad you could take a dive and read out of your comfort zone. I am doing the same. 1mo

Well saw the first episode today!!!! Its creepy! But so far its going with the book! #NWC

Darkside723 Personal opinion: such a satisfying netflix series. It‘s so fun watching how he justifies every single thing he does in the name of love. 2mo

Started on this yesterday and am already 125 pages in. Been meaning to read this for so long and am now suitably creeped out by it and guessing that feeling will last until I finish!!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks The ultimate creep you love to hate!! 😱😱 2mo
Laru79 He really is! I‘m just not sure what‘s going to happen... doesn‘t seem good though 😬 2mo

Mehso-so

I don‘t want to pan this because it‘s a decent read but I‘m a little tired of dead girls.

Soscha The gendered insults in the last bit were the deal breaker for me. I get it, writer is a woman and I‘m not trying to censor anyone‘s stories. Just, misogyny; it kills. Women are living through too much triggering BS the last few years and I‘m just not in the headspace for this stuff and may never be again. 2mo
Soscha Spoiler- Also, if you‘ve read John Fowles‘ “The Collector”, you‘ve already read this book, and how I was hoping “You” wouldn‘t just be a rehash. 2mo

This is one of the best books I‘ve read this year. I originally watched “You” on Netflix and discovered it was based on a book. In the beginning, it‘s almost word for word identical but as you get further into it, it gets darker and more intense than the show was. I cannot wait to grab Hidden Bodies and continue the story of Joe.

TheBookAddict I read it way before the show and it was truly a hypnotizing story. You want to feel repulsed by Joe and not want to be in his head, but you are in his head and you kind of like Joe. It‘s terrible and genius the way this book was written. Enthralling. I haven‘t read Hidden bodies yet, but I plan to read You again before I get to it. 🙂👍🏽 1mo
