I'm struggling with this book. Maybe because I've lived this? Falling in love with my best friend while in a long term relationship with a man. I think I'm letting that affect me. Pros: fun layout, story moves quickly, each girl has a distinct voice, info gets dropped on you and you're like WHOA. Cons: not big into fanfic, the ending was a "wait what", the surface was scratched of falling in love with your bff but not deep enough. (Notmypic)

This one has been on my TBR 5ever and I'm so happy to get into it. I need something lighter feeling this month. Work is stressful and life is stressful and I find myself wanting to read or paint all the time.

Notafraidofwords This one is really good and easy to digest. 3y

After much stress and back and forth (really a book shouldn't cause this much internal conflict) I'm officially DNFing the shit out of this book. I will try again next year.

Notafraidofwords I agree. If it's too much internal conflict, bail. 3y
annahenke I couldn't get into it either 3y
Ammie @Notafraidofwords @annahenke thank you. I need more people having unpopular opinions about monster popular books. 3y

If You Could Be Mine | Sara Farizan
Pickpick

I stayed away from this book for a while because it isn't what I'm used to. I realized that's a sorry reason. I heard Sara speak at Book Riot Live and she was so thoughtful, funny, and inspiring. The book was not what I expected. Almost a coming of age because you see the lead figuring herself off in just a couple hungry pages. Really amazing. Really recommend it.

This book wasn't going to be on my TBR 2016 but after visiting Parnassus, I really needed to get my hands on this. I loved it. It rang all my bells. Family drama, coming of age moments. Failed relationships. I just really enjoyed it. 🍊 ❤️ 📚

Megabooks How was the narration? I have a hold on the audiobook at the library. 3y
Ammie @Ebooksandcooks it was great! Her voice is a little slow and gentle but she did a great job distinguishing characters- all six kids! 3y

I'm enjoying this SO much. Thanks for the recommendation on Get Booked, @Amanda and @jennirl !

Notafraidofwords I never get my question answered lol. But congrats to you! 3y
Ammie @Notafraidofwords oh me either, haha. I asked almost a year ago. This is one from a lucky listener this past week. 3y
Notafraidofwords @Ammie oh okay. Lol. 3y
Ammie @Notafraidofwords what did you ask? I asked about short stories similar to as king and Aimee Bender's "the particular sadness of lemon cake" but I feel like since Kelly Link dropped Get In Trouble, they were like "eh, she's fine". 3y
Notafraidofwords @Ammie lol that's funny. I asked about books with beautiful sentences and underline tension. 3y

I listened to this on #audible. It's an interesting family drama told from/about three generations and a stoner husband. Throw it on your Winter TBR- lots of snow!

Megabooks Yes, I though it was a bit strange they released it in the summer with all the winter weather! 3y

Books and the bath. My favorite combination.

Ammie @Vblancsbooks yes!! I got about three chapters in and realized that I think I needed a break after The Woman in Cabin Ten. I should've chosen a different genre to sandwich those two books together 3y

I was anxious to finish this book because it was just so crazy and I had to know. I gave it 4 stars on good reads because it had issues but it was so damn engaging.

Vblancsbooks I just reviewed this too! I couldn't stop turning the pages I needed to know "wth is going on?" Haha 3y
Ammie @Vblancsbooks yes!!! I'm going to start the couple next door today and am hoping it sucks me in like this one. 3y

The book club meeting is tomorrow so I spent the weekend trying to get through this one. My interest in the book has been a roller coaster. Now, 81% done, I am bored and ready for this story to end. (Unlike how I did not want my weekend at the pool to end 😥)

britt_brooke This one was definitely not my favorite. 3y
EliseWhitmore Oh no, I just started it 😕 3y
Ammie @britt_brooke the book wasn't my favorite but it made for a great book club meeting! 3y

Ammie @EliseWhitmore Try it out. Ultimately I'm glad I read it but I wasn't in love like my friends were. The meeting was great though! Lots to talk about. 3y
EliseWhitmore @Ammie Reading it as part of a book club, so that's positive 🙂 Thx! 3y
Ammie @EliseWhitmore how did it go? 3y
EliseWhitmore @Ammie Besides weeping the last 10% of the book? Thought it was good. Not great, but It did make for a good discussion 🙂 3y

If you had two moms, though, or two dads, or your parents weren't the same color, then you were born knowing there wasn't actually a default setting.

Megabooks That's kind of how I feel about having a disabled mom. People ask me if my childhood was different, and I'm like from what? It's all I've ever known. 3y
