Despite the short length, this was a very entertaining and interesting read. I especially enjoyed the point of view and humor of the fake psychic. As a fan of Gillian Flynn, I was definitely left wanting more.

UnidragonFrag I've only heard great things about this. Maybe I need to put a hold on it at the library.. 3y
LauraBeth @Baileeandme Where the heck have you been?! I hope that all is well ❤️ 2y
Baileeandme @LauraBeth - it is nice to be missed. 😀Thank you. 2017 was a terrible year due to family issues. I know it was for you as well. I am back now and excited to keep up with you and Bitsy. 2y
LauraBeth @Baileeandme I‘m sorry to hear that about your 2017. I‘m glad you‘re back with Litsy. Here‘s hoping we have a much better 2018! 2y

Sometimes a book comes along that forever leaves its mark on you. A powerful story about friendships, dreams and faith. It is compelling.

Baileeandme @Bette I know! Me too! A lot of emotions in this one. 3y

3.5⭐️ A modest psychological thriller. I was hoping for something dark and creepy, but only got mildly unsettling. It is fast paced and Ruth Ware knows how to create atmosphere and set a scene. But I did not like the characters, and the ending was predictable.

SuperPunkNinja Agreed. 3y
Bette Yep. Same here. 3y
Reviewsbylola I agree with your points. I found myself really wanting to get back to this whenever I had the chance, so it was a pick for me, but it definitely wasn't ground breaking or anything. 3y
Baileeandme I'm glad to not be alone in my disappointment. @McShelfington @Bette @Reviewsbylola 3y

"I wrote it because I believed it was the right thing to do, and because the things that make us most uncomfortable are the things that teach us what we all need to know" - quote from the author's notes.

This novel forces readers to meditate on their own beliefs and actions along with the characters. Such a thought provoking read.

I was completely lost in this disturbing love story. There are several difficult and highly controversial topics in the book. I am still feeling conflicted. It will make an impression, whether good or bad. It is definitely a great choice for an emotional read.

Bookzombie That's a pretty setting! 🙂 3y
Alfoster Just bought this on your rec. Thanks! 3y
Baileeandme Thank you @Bookzombie it was the entrance of the hotel I stayed at last weekend. 3y
Baileeandme @Alfoster I will definitely be reading future books by this author. I look forward to your review when you finish the book. 3y
Alfoster @Baileeandme Perfect! You had me at "disturbing love story@! 3y

Leaving Time | Jodi Picoult

Today is World Elephant Day. Elephants are pretty wonderful creatures, with strong everlasting bonds for those they love. Jodi Picoult's book Leaving Time is for anyone who loves animals, especially elephants. It will leave you feeling many emotions, and has made a profound impact on how I view animals in captivity.

Superbly crafted, I am unable to adequately put into words the power in which this novel has moved me. So beautiful, but heartbreaking at the same time. It's incredible.

Before the Fall | Noah Hawley

Starting out in the aftermath of a private plane crash, we get a novel that is multilayered. It is a mystery, a portrait of lives forever changed by tragedy, and a view of the nature of our modern media. All of this works effortlessly pulling the reader into each page of this terrific novel.

Heat and Light: A Novel | Jennifer Haigh

Pickpick

With natural gas fracking as the novels framework, this is a terrific and entertaining novel with detailed character study that examines the human cost of fracking. Heat and Light is very much a social novel, thought provoking and worth reading.
