mcipher How do you like it? I felt like the audio was a bit slow but I did what to find out what happened next, and it was so twisty! 2d
AJBowers @mcipher it is a bit slow, and it takes a minute to differentiate which narrator it's supposed to be. 2d
mcipher Yes! That was a tough one for me too. 2d
mc916 Ok, I had to keep going back to find out who i was reading and when. Then, i had to re-read the whole ending because i was still lost! lol! 2d

Finally finished. I don't think this book would have been a pick had I read it in book form as opposed to audio. It was quiet drawn out. Lots of indecision on the main characters part. But the reading of this audiobook was well done that it did draw me in. #24in48

Susannah Great review! I totally agree with the story being drawn out. The audiobook narrator saved it for me too. 3d

Audiobook Life #hour12 #24in48 @24in48

Listening to The Death of Mrs. Westaway. This is such a slow burn book. I honestly don't think I would enjoy it as much if I was reading it since the person reading it brings such life into the characters.

There has not been one book in this series that I haven't loved. Although the books are on the shorter side, they pack a big punch. I could just wrap myself up in the prose. Not to mention every cover of this series is amazing. I must own them all someday!! 😍

Getting through this one was like trying to gnaw on burnt gingerbread. Pass ??‍♀️.

So much of this book was nonsensical. I have a fondness for whimsy and magic, but this was so far past that.

I found myself upon finishing just left with a feeling of "FINALLY, it's over!!!". Onto the next read ??.

I find that I've been picking up more and more books that are in a book club recommendation.
Which, if any, book clubs are you drawn to?

I've been working my way through Reese Witherspoon's picks lately.

Jenny Lawson has me laughing throughout this entire book! 😂😂😂

I usually try to read at night when my kids are sleeping but this is an actual laugh out loud kind of book that must be read during the day, while not drinking any kind of beverage.
