BarbaraBB @Boooooks I‘m not too keen on him since he‘s having that moustache 🤨 1w
Boooooks @BarbaraBB 😂 me neither I liked his long hair, I‘m excited to read fleas book now! 1w
BarbaraBB Long hair and I likes him blond as well 😍. I pre-ordered Flea‘s book but I still have no confirmation that it‘s on its way! 1w
Cinfhen I really loved this book. Total miracle Anthony made it to the other side, but I agree @BarbaraBB that mustache is HORRIBLE 🤪 1w

Only at the halfway point and I‘m seriously wondering how he is still alive never mind managing to become a hugely successful musician

arlenefinnigan I've heard this is a great read, how are you finding it? 3w
Boooooks @arlenefinnigan I‘m enjoying it although it is quite repetitive with the drug binges and the same things happening again and again but it‘s interesting so far. I am hoping that he‘ll go into his relationship with Flea a bit more though because he barely talks about him in depth which seems odd considering that besides him he‘s the most present member of the band. 3w
arlenefinnigan @Boooooks yeah they always seemed really close. Interesting. 3w
BarbaraBB That was my one disappointment too, that he writes so little about their friendship. Let‘s see what Flea has to say about it in 3w
Boooooks @BarbaraBB yeah I think I‘ll give that one a try it sounds good 3w

3 stars I enjoyed this one but although I haven‘t read many thrillers every time I read them I seem to have some unreachable plot twist standards that can never be met. Is it too much to ask, all I want is the most shocking plot twist ever that I can‘t see coming but that makes complete sense at the same time 😂

JamieArc Have you read Fingersmith by Sarah Waters? Not exactly a thriller, but it has some of the best plot twists I‘ve read, and I know other Littens would vouch for it too. 3mo

Part 3 physical tbr- I‘ve been focused on library books lately because I know my own books aren‘t going anywhere which has been really good in stopping me buying books, but after doing this my goal is to find a good balance between library books and my reducing my own tbr.

Comic book prompt- this is the 3rd in the series and these are the only comic/ graphic novels I‘ve ever tried I need to explore the format more because so far I‘m thinking it may not be for me, plus with this I have a hard time separating it from the show 🤔 #booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

I still don‘t fully get the prompt for genrebusting if this counts or not but it‘s sort of a fantasy, historical fiction/ romance with lots of unanswered questions and a timeline that‘s all over the place but either way I really liked it and loved the characters. @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft #booked2019 #summer #genrebusting

Cinfhen Sounds #genrebursting to me!!! I started this book years ago but never finished it 😬I‘ve always meant too 4mo
Boooooks @Cinfhen thanks for getting back to me, i get why you put it down it‘s very slow on the plot but I loved the atmosphere 4mo

1/5⭐️ i really didn‘t like this one I hated all of the characters which I‘m sure was supposed to be the case for the most part but I genuinely still have no clue whether we were supposed to root for the main character at least but I just didn‘t care. Also I know they‘re cheerleaders and everything so their bodies would be a big part of it but it felt like I was hearing the same passage about ‘tight bodies‘ over and over again.

Karisa I bailed on this one too. Plot and characters felt so empty. 4mo

At this point I‘ve spent the same amount of time on this as I did reading clash of kings (about 5 weeks 😱) and I‘m not even half way through. I don‘t know what‘s going on it‘s not hard to read and I am actually enjoying it although I don‘t like Eleanor yet which doesn‘t really matter but for some reason I‘m only reading a few pages at a time 😅

I am loving this sooooo much so far I‘m so annoyed with myself for putting it off for so long because it‘s so big ahh. I only started it now because I wanted to start the show along with everyone else in the world it has being the cause of severe fomo. I‘m just hoping that the books and show start to go in different directions just so if I get further ahead with the show not every single part of the books are spoiled.
