So creepy! I did most of this on audio and I must say Michael C. Hall did a great job. I remember seeing parts of the movie when I was younger and now that I‘ve read the book, I‘m going to watch the movie in full (both versions). 🌟🌟🌟🌟

So I can't decide if I want to give this 3.5 stars orf 4 stars. I loved the beginning and the middle but the end made me sad, dammit! I laughed a lot (and cried a little) and the audio was wonderful, so I guess I have my answer, 4 stars. It was very interesting reading a whole book from animal POVs! S.T. and Dennis are going down as one of my favorite animal duos. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I‘m becoming a huge fan of Riley Sager. Once the story got rolling, I had a hard time putting it down. The story was suspenseful and I really did not expect that ending. Holy hell!

I‘m looking forward to re-reading this series. I have all of the audiobooks so a good chunk will be consumed while driving or crocheting. I want to be ready for the release of book 9, which will hopefully be next year. I‘m also going to read the novellas in between which I never bothered to do before.

Man, this one was good! The storyline was pretty terrifying but it was to be expected since it‘s a Karin Slaughter book. I really hope I don‘t have to wait another three years for the next book in the series. I love all the main characters, Will and his awkwardness, Amanda and her no-nonsense attitude, and Faith and her sarcasm.

What a week! Last Friday I woke up and could barely walk on my right leg. No idea what happened 🤷🏾‍♀️. It‘s finally doing better so I hope to increase my exercise next week. I gave up on tracking my unplugged days. I will try and re-focus on that goal next session.

Ahh so good! I read Illuminae over a year ago and loved that one and I think I might like this one even more. I hope Obsidio will bring this series to a satisfying conclusion. I ended up checking out the print copy from work because the format is so much better in print versus on my Kindle. The audio was wonderful too. I wasn't a fan of Hanna's audio voice but her character was kick ass. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I rarely read hard copy books but the format for this series is so fun, this time around I don‘t want to read it on my kindle. This is the second book of the Illuminae trilogy and the story is told through memos, video surveillance, chat logs, and more. The audiobooks has a full cast but I only listen when I‘m in the car. #bfc #bookfitnesschallenge #bfcr3

The first part of the story was a little boring, but it picked up during the second half. I really like this series and the dry humor and sarcasm always makes me laugh out loud. I've been trying to get to this book since June 2018 so I'm glad I finally found time to read it.

I enjoyed the book, I really did, but there were times I wanted to throw my kindle across the room! Queenie has to be one of the most frustrating characters I‘ve ever read about. Her life was a mess and she had no respect for her self-worth. I know that was part of what the story was about but man, she gave me anxiety. That being said, I definitely recommend reading this one, just be ready to throw something. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
