Fireborne | Rosaria Munda
post image

Fireborne has been described as Game of Thrones meets Red Rising. Sounds awesome, right?! Okay, maybe it sounds awesome to you but I‘m not familiar with either of those stories! 😬 I‘m not a huge fantasy reader but I‘ve been trying to find storylines that appeal to me.

You can get this book for just $9.99 plus tax when you sign up for BOTM YA by using the code PSL5 at checkout! http://book-of-the-month.ixmz.net/GkO9E

DGRachel As a fan of both, it does sound awesome, but I‘m skeptical of the comparison. 1d
Butterflyamore @DGRachel I‘ll have nothing to go on in the end, I guess. It will be interesting to see what other people who do love both end up thinking of this. 1d

Boy, Snow, Bird: A Novel | Helen Oyeyemi

If you were ask me to list my favorite hobbies, at this point I would definitely need to add “going to library book sales.” I love them so much!

Needless to say, this is another library book sale haul! We headed out to Clifton Springs Library last night and found some goodies! I was especially excited about the Jennifer Donnelly book, although this now means I need to find the first two in the trilogy!

Have you read any of these?

jdiehr Me, too! You can't go wrong at a library sale 😄 3d
Butterflyamore @jdiehr They‘re so addicting! 3d
Butterflyamore @AmyG I‘m so glad to see someone say something positive about it. I think it sounds so intriguing! 3d

Have you read any of these and then watched the movies? How do you feel they compare? You can hear my thoughts by checking out my latest video: https://youtu.be/wOZQ_eAtmfc

Heart-Shaped Box | Joe Hill

I‘m trying to decide what I want to start next. After finishing The Doll Factory, I feel lost and confused. My life suddenly has no meaning. I have a couple other books I‘ve started already but I‘m not in the mood for any of them. So I‘m going to read a little from each of these and hopefully find one to fill the void.

Butterflyamore @Ruthiella One of these days, I do need to do that! It‘s too late for this round but maybe next time. I just read the first page for each of these, narrowed it down to two, read the full first chapter in those, and chose Here There Are Monsters. 4d

The Doll Factory: A Novel | Elizabeth Macneal
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I think that The Doll Factory will appeal more to those who like slow gothic horrors with strong development and depth. But this is more than just a horror. It‘s beautifully crafted love story, a poignant look at what the artist sees, and an exploration of human emotion and strength.

People often say “The book was better!” Do you always think that‘s true? Come find out which one I liked better for seven specific stories: https://youtu.be/wOZQ_eAtmfc

#booktube #booksvsmovies #thebookwasbetter #bookish

MidnightBookGirl I love both the book and the movie, but I am more than happy with the differences between them. 5d
EadieB @Butterflyamore I have read My Sister's Keeper, The Glass Castle, and the Phantom of the Opera but I've only seen The Phantom of the Opera movie and Broadway version. I agree with you that the Broadway version was way better than the book or movie. The atmosphere and the songs added much to the production and made that more memorable. I don't watch a lot of movie of the books I read but I just went to see The Goldfinch which I also loved the movie 5d
Butterflyamore @EadieB I haven‘t read The Goldfinch yet but I‘d definitely like to before seeing the movie. The trailer for the movie does look really good! 5d
EadieB @Butterflyamore People who have not read The Goldfinch will be a little lost as the book was so long and the movie doesn't hit all the info as well as the book. I know I had to explain a lot of things to my husband. I just watched Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil and read the book also. I actually liked the movie better as the screen does the book so much more justice. If I think of any more movies that I have seen, I will let you know. (edited) 5d

Here To Stay | Mark Edwards
post image

I am excited that my new Mark Edwards books arrived today! I am happy to have a physical copy of The Retreat since the ebook I read was a borrowed book. I decided to add Here To Stay to my already ridiculously unattainable October pile because I feel confident it will be a quick, creepy read and it has a character named Elliot in it, which is a name that will always have a special place in my heart. I sure hope Elliot‘s a good guy!

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

On Saturday that we went to two library book sales but I only posted one of my hauls. Here‘s the other one! It‘s small but definitely not lacking in quality. I was happy to find Bear Town after finding Us Against You at a sale last month. While I haven‘t read my copy of The Bear and The Nightingale yet, I‘m glad to have the next book in the trilogy now. I don‘t know much about the elephant book but it sounded interesting and I love elephants!

Making a fake sad face is very hard to do. 😂 But that doesn‘t change the fact that the books I want to talk to you about made me cry very hard! Check out my top 5 tearjerkers here: https://youtu.be/yUWs6j9McHE

#booktube #bookvlog #sadbooks #tearjerkerbooks #booksthatmademecry #needmoretissues #sadsad #sadstories

JulietBooks I think that's an excellent fake sad face. 👏👏👏👍 1w
EadieB @Butterflyamore The only tearjerker that I have read the same as you is Where The Red Fern Grows and I found it very sad too. Another sad dog book that I read was Old Yeller. Others that made me cry are: The Light Between Oceans, Dr. Zhivago, The Thornbirds, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and Me Before You. There have been others for sure but can't think of all of them right now. Sad books do help us release our pent up emotions which is good. 1w
Butterflyamore @EadieB I agree. They can be so helpful. A Monster Calls was especially timely for me. The Light Between Oceans definitely made me cry as well. Even after reading it, while watching the movie, knowing exactly what to expect, I still cried quite a bit. I haven‘t read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, as I hadn‘t realized it was a book when I watched the movie, but I can only imagine how upsetting the book was. The movie was definitely rough. 1w
Butterflyamore @JulietBooks Thank you! I tried very hard! Haha! 1w

Do you have a lot of orange books?

I thought it would be fun to create a pumpkin with my books but upon seeking out books for this, I realized that I am extremely limited in the orange book color category! I‘m consistently amazed by things like this because I own such a ridiculous amount of books! Anyway, here‘s my best attempt with what I could find. 😂

marleed I don‘t own many orange hardbacks but I do to have a tall stack of orange paperbacks. I find book spine colors entertaining. I follow books by the foot on insta because it‘s interesting to see how they price a foot of random hardbacks (black spines the cheapest since the most common) 1w

It‘s time to talk about the books we read in September! Come watch my latest video and chat with me about your reads from last month! https://youtu.be/Y_Bhj5MAaxk

#booktube #septemberwrapup #monthlywrapup #booksreadinseptember #septemberreads #bookreviews #booktalk #goodreads #bookvideo #readersunite

EadieB @Butterflyamore The only book I read from your list is Recursion. I have a few books from Jennifer Donnelly and need to read them. I have the Tea Rose collection and Northern Lights and Revolution. I have the DI Patrick Lennon books from Mark Edwards which he wrote with Louise Voss. @Andrew65 read them and loved them and we have similar tastes. I hope to read them soon. Now I‘ll tell you about what I read in September in my next post. 2w
EadieB @Butterflyamore I read 14 books and about 6 were mysteries from series I am reading. First off, my rating system is usually 3 stars is a so-so read, 4 stars is I liked it a-lot and 5 stars it was great! Anything below 3 I didn‘t like at all. 4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie was 4 stars, The Caller by Chris Carter was a 5 star read but his books are over the top gore but I read them with a group and we do enjoy them. 2w
See All 16 Comments
EadieB @Butterflyamore Farewell My Lovely by Raymond Chandler was a 5 star read. I read this one for my 100 years mystery book challenge. I love those old time classics. A Better Man by Louise Penny was a disappointing 3 stars. I have read her series for 15 books and she needs to get back to writing about Three Pines village like her earlier books. Her last two have been off track. I think her reviews will wake her up as to what she needs to do. 2w
EadieB @Butterflyamore After the Fire by Jane Casey is a 4 star read and a great series too! The Funeral Boat by Kate Ellis was 4 stars and another series read with a group. The Beekeepers Apprentice by Laurie R King was 5 stars. It is about Sherlock Holmes at the time of his retirement and Mary Russell who will be his new female partner. This was the 1st book in the series so I‘m looking forward to read more. I‘ll tell you next about the fiction books. 2w
EadieB @Butterflyamore Hammer of Eden by Ken Follett which is a 4 star read. I am reading all his standalone books with @Andrew65 and @Tove_Reads and we are really enjoying his writing. What Rose Forgot is a 4 star read from NetGalley. Ask Again Yes is a 4 star. I think you may have read this one. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was an excellent 5 star read. If you haven‘t read this yet, you should! Nights of Rain and Stars by Maeve Binchy was 4 stars 2w
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes, totally loved the DI Patrick Lennon Books, I just wish they‘d write more. Hope you enjoyed them @Butterflyamore 2w
Andrew65 The Caller by Chris Carter and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo were two of my favourite books in September along with The Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley. @eadieb @Butterflyamore 2w
EadieB @Butterflyamore I‘m reading all of Binchy‘s books with another group and we enjoy them. They are books usually about Ireland and interesting unique characters. Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl is 4 star read. This book is very different. It is a YA book with many genres; magical realism, science fiction, psychological suspense. I read her Night Film book so I decided to try this one too. The Words Between Us is a 5 star read from NetGalley. 2w
Butterflyamore @EadieB It sounds like a pretty good reading month for you! I definitely want to read more of books by Mark Edwards. I haven‘t read Ask Again, Yes yet but I do have it. I see so many positive things about Evelyn Hugo. I have to say that it has never appealed to me but I‘m hoping to do one thing outside of my comfort zone each month so I‘m sure I will read it eventually. 2w
EadieB @Butterflyamore This last book i told you about is by Erin Bartels and I really liked her writing alot and her characters too. @Andrew65 Thanks for chiming in and confirming about the books we read in September! (edited) 2w
Butterflyamore @Andrew65 The Moon Sister sounds interesting. I haven‘t read the DI Patrick Lennon books yet but I read The Retreat by Mark Edwards last month and loved it so I‘d definitely like to check out more of his work. 2w
Andrew65 @Butterflyamore The whole Seven Sisters Series by Lucinda Riley is excellent. 2w
Andrew65 @EadieB You Know me, can‘t not! James Rollins and James Oswald in October so should be another good month. 2w
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes! I'm looking forward to reading those! Thanks again for joining in! 2w

One of the most terrifying things about this story is how incredibly real it feels. Deeply disturbed children who have been traumatized exist. Loving couples who believe their hearts are big enough to heal the wounded child exist. As the story unfolds, the toxic results feel horrifyingly possible.

I enjoyed your book comparisons and look forward to reading some of them. I own The Art of Racing in the Rain and look forward to reading that soon. Little Darlings and The Stolen Child look interesting too. A Curse so Dark and Lonely I will have to check out too. 3w
Butterflyamore @EadieB My husband created the music. I don‘t think it‘s available on the one album he has available through iTunes but I‘ll double check with him. It‘s a clip from something he produced. I‘m glad some of the books sound interesting to you! 3w

The song is track 5, "Bookworm Girl." I have nothing to do with the song. He wrote it for another bookworm girl. ?

Then She Was Gone | Lisa Jewell
post image

Have you gotten any new books this week? My haul is significantly smaller than usual but that‘s okay, considering that I seem to read a lot slower than my book buying habits comprehend. I got No Second Chance from Goodwill, Then She Was Gone through a Facebook group, The Better Liar From the publisher, and the rest from The Dog Eared Book in Palmyra, NY.

Samplergal I bought The Testaments this week. 😬 I‘m supposed to not be buying ANYTHING, yet alone Books. 3w
Butterflyamore @Samplergal I admire your willpower! Only one book still takes great restraint! I hope you enjoy The Testaments! 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is my second read from Shari Lapena and I‘ve concluded that I can count on her for engaging, fast-paced thrillers.

Day 21 of the #botmbookclubseptphotochallenge: Paperback pile

Have you read any of these? They are all TBR books for me but I‘m trying to figure out what thrillers and creepy reads I want to add to my October TBR. These are some top contenders. Tell me what you would recommend, even if it isn‘t in this pile.

Laughterhp I got the same pumpkins at Target! 🤣 3w
BookDragonNotWorm I've read Final Girls, definitely good for a Halloween read! 3w
Butterflyamore @Laughterhp Haha! I bought three of them. They‘re so cute! 3w

The Better Liar | Tanen Jones
post image

Hey, thriller lovers, if you are not yet excited for The Better Liar by Tanen Jones, may I boldly declare that you should be!?!? I‘ve read the prologue and what a powerfully haunting start it was! I do suspect this is going to be a high rated one on my list. I haven‘t read such an extraordinary beginning like that in a while!

The Better Liar will be available on 1/14/20.

OriginalCyn620 I‘m convinced! Stacked! 3w

In the end, it hardly matters whether stags, beavers, seals, or elephants weep. Tears are not grief, but tokens of grief. The evidence of grief from other animals is strong... Sadness, nostalgia, and disappointment are feelings we know from direct experience; animals we know intimately hint at their parallel feelings in this dark world. ~When Elephants Weep: The Emotional Lives of Animals/Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

Stepsister | Jennifer Donnelly
post image
Pickpick

4.75 stars

I think there is so much depth that readers can take away from Stepsister, as we are reminded that we are not who the world tells us we are and we don‘t need to be who others demand we should be. It‘s a book that chases us away from the path of conformity.

Slowly but surely, I am catching up on tags and challenges. I was tagged a second time in the #alphabet book challenge on #instagram and I am all for doing this fun challenge again! I could have used my author pick pr character pick for my title pick too, since my assigned letter is A, but I was happy to put A Monster Calls and Alice in those spots.

Title: A Monster Calls
Author: Anthony Doerr
Character: Alice

I can‘t believe it‘s been 3 months since my last most anticipated thrillers releases video! I also can‘t believe it‘s been almost 6 months since I started my BookTube channel! Time sure does fly! Well, it was time for another thriller video for the final quarter of 2019 and here it is! https://youtu.be/b4D7azOa4ek

EadieB @Butterflyamore I love your thriller videos. I marked them all down. I only heard of J T Ellison as I have read No One Knows and 4 books of her Samantha Owens series. She is a great writer and I‘ve enjoyed all her books. I am reading for NetGalley which I already mentioned before: Mary Kubica‘s book The Other Mrs pub date 2/18/20 and What You Did by Claire McGowan pub date 8/1/19. Read her Paula McGuire series which is excellent. 4w
Butterflyamore @EadieB I have What You Did in my Kindle but I‘ve never read any of her other books before. 4w
