Water Cure | Sophie Mackintosh

#AnglophileApril #TheCure 🎸🎵You know that feeling when a book blurb promises you one thing and then you read the novel and think WTF??? That is NOT what I expected. Well this book, was that situation. Three sisters live on an isolated island with their mother and father ( the ONLY man they‘ve ever known). They‘ve been taught boys/men are dangerous. Then their dad disappears and 3 men appear on their island. What‘s a girl to do?? #BoysDontCry

RadicalReader The title made me think of the movie A Cure for Wellness starring Jason Issacs who was Lucius Malfoy in the HP Series 1mo
TrishB I really didn‘t like this book. 1mo

Cinfhen It was so odd...the premise was so promising but the book really didn‘t deliver @TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm I read it as an ARC and I basically skimmed through. Maybe I missed the good stuff 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
whatsthEStorey I bailed on this one. I found it jarringly odd and could not connect to any of the characters. It reminded me a little of Gather the Daughters. I must‘ve missed the good stuff, too! 1mo
Kalalalatja This really dissappointed me. I didn‘t hate it, but like you said, not what I expected 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
Mdargusch Well after reading these comments I‘m not going to hurry to read this. I thought the blurb sounded interesting. 1mo
Cinfhen I also kept thinking about Gather the Daughters @whatsthEStorey and I didn‘t like that book at all!!! Ask @Kalalalatja she gifted it to me because I had wanted to read it so badly. I think it‘s perfectly fine to skip this one @Mdargusch and it‘s too bad because the premise sounded good. 1mo
emmaturi I also thought it was ok but nothing special! 1mo
Cinfhen For me it was disturbing and confusing @emmaturi 😳 1mo
emilyhaldi Sounds fascinating but the reviews are a resounding 👎🏻 I‘ll be skipping this one! 1mo
Rissreads Sounds like you and I are on the same wavelength for this one! 😬 1mo
Cinfhen So disappointing @emilyhaldi @Rissreads although @Lindy just reviewed this book and she enjoyed it. Look for her review 💚 1mo
Rissreads Thanks I will 👍 1mo

"Misjudged your limits
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted
Thought that you needed me more, more, more"
These lyrics reminded me of this book.

I'm going to attempt to play along this month. Robert Smith sings about how "I wish I'd stayed asleep today" which made me think of Alexander.

I caved and bought a book even though I‘m trying to cut back on that. Couldn‘t pass up a memoir about The Cure though.

Trying to wind down after a long day with some mint hot chocolate.
