So follow up to my prior post. I left a review on amazon which is shown below keep in mind this is the first negative below 5 star rating I‘ve ever given anything on there & this bullhsit happens. Pardon my language but I‘m livid & I made it clear in my reply to them that I‘ll never make any purchase from them again. No more app, account, & or anything else Amazon related ever again! All for an honest review

Quirkybookworm I don‘t deal with Amazon. They were great long ago until they started expanding more(which they don‘t need to) and gotten greedy. I realized they‘re taking over over local shops so I decided to fight back by not being their customers. I‘d rather support locally so economy can thrive in small towns and small cities. 1y
BookwormBeth @Quirkybookworm I don‘t usually order books from them but i had a gc & had some left after I ordered a toy for my dog so took a chance but see what it got me. Now i won‘t order anything from them again. They lost any business I may have given them on other items down the road. Just ridiculous & quite frankly disgusting 1y
BibliOphelia My guess is that the book error resides with the publisher/printer, but Amazon has a totally sucky attitude in general, and I won‘t buy a book from them - if we don‘t support our locals, we won‘t have any. It might cost more, but I just borrow more from the library when necessary. 1y
BookwormBeth I don‘t usually either & I suppose this is what I get for doing it this time lol. I‘d kill to have a local bookstore I live in a tiny town in Virginia the closest bookstore to me is a books-a-million that‘s about 35-40 min away so I always get my books there. I wanted to open my own once upon a time but didn‘t quite have the credit for the business loan & my podunk town prob wouldn‘t appreciate it anyway. Not many read where I live lol 1y

So this is a book from amazon which I don‘t normally do but i had a gift card & looks like my concerns are warranted. This page is suppose to start a new sentence but as you can see it is 1/2 a sentence. Anyone else have this in their hardcover copy? Praying this isn‘t a theme throughout my copy because missing sentences is a big problem! 😱😩🤬

1. Books of course, Funkos, Bookish clothing/art/knick knacks, Octopus sculptures. 2. I prefer to read my books without the dust jacket to avoid any rips or accidents. I keep my current reads in book sleeves since I always take what I‘m reading to work to read on lunch. 3. Books-A-Million it‘s the only bookstore close and it‘s about 35 minutes away. Sometimes amazon but rarely. #tripletuesday @MelAnn

MelAnn Octopus sculptures sound interesting! 🌷Thank you for playing along! 2y
BookwormBeth @MelAnn kind of an odd thing to collect but they are pretty neat & easier to find than you would think lol. You‘re very welcome 🤓🐙 2y

Final Girls | Riley Sager
Mehso-so

I wasn't crazy about this book. For me it didn't live up to all the hype. The main character was super annoying & it didn't really do anything for me until about the last 50 pages or so. Felt like it was a lot of blah,blah,blah, oh wait let me throw a shocker at the end so it won't seem like a waste. I didn't 👎it because of the ending but I had to force myself to finish which in my opinion you shouldn't have to do with a thriller

Bette When I read all the hype, I figured it was right up my alley. So disappointed. Your review says everything I felt as well. 👍😊 2y
BookwormBeth @Bette yeah I was very disappointed by it. lol thanks glad to know I'm not the only one who felt this way 2y
MimiLovesToRead Thank you!! Finally! Someone who feel the same as i do! It was actually corny to me. So disappointing. 2y

MimiLovesToRead And i did 👎it! 2y
BookwormBeth Lol @MimiLovesToRead I'm glad I'm not the only one that didn't like it. I think I tend to go against popular opinion when it comes to these big new releases. Always seems like when I take a chance on one everyone loves I never like it 2y
MimiLovesToRead @BookwormBeth Same here! Sometimes I wonder if some say they like it because so many others say they did and they want to be like everyone else!? I hope that makes sense! 😃 2y

Final Girls | Riley Sager

I feel like either I haven't hit the wow part of this book yet or I'm just not gonna be one of the masses that loves it. I'm about 3/4 of the way through & I'm just not feeling it. The main character is annoying & I feel like I'm missing something because it seems too obvious who the killer is. I'm hoping I have missed something or it's just really messing with me letting me think I know what's going on when I really don't. We shall see.

Bookzombie I'm about a third of the way through on audio. I'm struggling to want to listen but I think it's because it sort of reminds me of The Never List. A lot of the details are different but it still feels similar. I'm also wondering if I have it figured out. 2y
BookwormBeth @Bookzombie I finished last night only because I was so close to being done I didn't wanna quit. I was somewhat wrong about part of my suspicion & completely shocked by another but I still stand by my feelings on it. I really wasn't crazy about it at all. It got on my nerves I had to make myself finish. I'd finish if I were u just for the shock I received was worth it I think lol. But def wouldn't recommend it (edited) 2y
Bookzombie @BookwormBeth Thanks. I'm going to finish it. I hope it picks up though. Lol. 2y
BookwormBeth Good luck :) hope u enjoy more than I did 2y

We Were Liars | E. Lockhart
Mehso-so

I can't decide if I liked this book or not lol. I will say I've never finished a book so fast but that's because literally Nothing happens until you have practically finished it so you keep at it wondering when something is actually gonna happen. I didn't care for her "fairy tales" throughout the book found them rather annoying. Not what I wanna read when I'm trying to figure out what the heck is going on. But all in all it was ok. ?

Megabooks It's kind of a weird book. 3y
BookwormBeth @Ebooksandcooks yes it is it really has me questioning myself as to whether I liked it or not haha so odd 3y

BookwormBeth @bookandcat did you like it? 3y
bookandcat Eh. So so for me. Did not love and did not understand the hype around it. But I finished it and didn't absolutely hate it, thus it's not a total pan. 3y
BookwormBeth @bookandcat yeah when I finished I thought what in the world was all that hype about ugh I'm like you I didn't hate it but really felt kind of empty like I had been promised something that left me high & dry. Oh well can't love them all 3y
