Hi, all. I'm looking for a way to get out of my reading slump. Too many distractions these days. I thought joining a buddy read would be fun. I know about #buddyread, #pemberlittens, #furrowedmiddlebrowclub, and #sundaybuddyreads. I plan to check these out. Any suggestions for others? I don't care for rom-coms, science fiction or short stories. Other than that, I'm pretty open.

Thank you!

CarolynM I must have missed this when you posted it, sorry. As well as #FurrowedMiddlebrowClub I‘m also in the #WhartonBuddyRead (reading Edith Wharton in chronological order - I think we‘ve done 5 or 6 so plenty more to go) and the #PersephoneClub group (reading books from the Persephone catalogue) You‘d be very welcome in any of those groups🙂 Hope you find something to get you out of the slump💕 (edited) 1mo
Sparklemn @carolynm I love Persephone books. I have about 20 of them and always happy to buy more in the catalogue. I'll check it out. Thank you!! 1mo
Sparklemn @tpixie I'll check this out. Thank you! 2w
tpixie @Sparklemn most are short Children‘s novels, so not a big commitment! 2w

Every time we finished a Simone St. James book for #sundaybuddyreads this year I vowed to go back & read this one & I finally did it! I can see what all the🖤is about. Spooky, atmospheric & an interesting story & mystery with lots of twists. I‘m still torn between this & The Sun Down Motel as my favorite with Silence For the Dead right up there too. Heck, I‘ve enjoyed everything I‘ve read from this author & can‘t wait for her new book next year.

kspenmoll Me too to all that!!!💕 10mo
Sargar114 Glad you loved it!!! Mary Hand is one of the scariest ghosts! (edited) 10mo
DebinHawaii @Sargar114 She is quite scary! I even had to stop reading it last night when it was dark & windy outside.😱😉 10mo

So. I finished the book (even before the first #SundayBuddyRead discussion). I thought I was behind then I started to listen to it and then... it just gripped me and I had to keep going. I will linger/lurk in the #SundayBuddyReads - but not participate too heavily because I don't want to spoil anything. #TBRread 10hrs



mollyrotondo 😂 I‘m glad you liked it so much! I am going to start this weekend and participate in the #sundaybuddyread. I hope I can stop after chapter 10. I really like her books. 1y
ElizaMarie @mollyrotondo I have never read any of her books before. But it was just a great combination of ghost story/mystery type of book that I just got so into it! I really enjoyed it .. 1y
mollyrotondo @ElizaMarie oh her books are very good and do a good job incorporating some sort of supernatural element. The tagged book was very good. 1y
