CBee @bcncookbookclub hi 👋🏻 I‘m not sure which book this is from actually. I tried to find it and it might have been from a self help type book he wrote? But, I‘m not positive. 🤷‍♀️ 8h

Pieces of Her | Karin Slaughter
post image
Pickpick

Karin Slaughter is the queen of dramatic, shocking beginnings. I LOVE IT.
This one shifts POV between the main characters, a mother and a daughter - one who is trying to hide her past, the other trying to figure out who she is. It‘s riveting, twisty, sometimes emotional, and SUCH a fantastic story. A must read!

This was GOOD. At first I thought I should put it aside, as it was bringing up some scary thoughts about the current state of our country and it‘s leadership..... but I kept reading. Totally worth it and I highly recommend! Oh, and don‘t forget: RESIST 💪🏻

arlenefinnigan @CBee hi! Was arguing with my husband last night about the essential unfairness of cricket (England currently trail Australia by 280 runs, so they're hoping it rains) - "so Australia could have scored 9 million runs but if it rains while England are batting it's a draw?" "yeah. That's life." "HOW IS THAT FAIR?!" 1w

I don‘t know what it is, but every book I‘ve read recently has gone like this:
1. Start reading, I‘m kinda bored
2. The thought of not finishing a book makes me itchy, so I keep going.
3. BOOM! Hit me with the twisty plot!
4. Okay, I‘m hooked.
🤷‍♀️😂

I found this picture on Google and it‘s PERFECTION. Perfect rendering of the relationship between the two main characters in this book. It took me a few chapters to really get into, but I‘m so glad I stuck with it! The mythology nerd in me was thrilled with the references to Baba Yaga (among others). Loved it!

Hello friends! Just curious if I‘m the only person who struggles with this: do you find it difficult to write book reviews? I find myself struggling to get beyond, “it was good” and “read this book!” 😂😂 I also give almost every book I read five stars 😂😂

QuietlyLaura I‘m the same! 👋☺️ 1mo
BarkingMadRun Me too, it has to be really bad to get less! If I‘m struggling to finish, I‘ll give it four stars, but I‘m pretty easily amused lol 1mo
CBee @BarkingMadRun me too 😂😂 even then I‘m too nice and will do three stars or something 😂 1mo

bromeliad I don't, but I've taken a TON of writing classes, where you're expected to consider underlying elements: theme, character differentiation, pacing, word choice, etc. When you're required to notice whether or not a writer is doing these things well, it teaches you to read with a more critical eye. This is both good and bad: I like being able to say WHY I do/don't like something I read, but I also now have a hard time just reading for enjoyment. 😅 1mo
CBee @QuietlyLaura the book was good. I liked it! Me every time I finish reading something 😂 1mo
CBee @bromeliad that reminds me of why I hated music theory classes. I couldn‘t stand dissecting everything, I just wanted to play the music 🤷‍♀️😁 1mo
bromeliad @CBee I can imagine! I had a friend in college who was majoring in music and he said it totally ruined concerts for him and he can't go to any anymore. 1mo
AkashaVampie I totally suck at reviewing. If i do review i try to look at others to see if i can spark something to write. 1mo
Meaw_catlady It me ! 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I find it hard on here, because of the limited word count. Also, I dont really like to rate things on 5 star system. I prefer the Litsy system, but I wish there was something between so-so & pick. Often I just post a blurb and not a rating if I dont feel strongly about a particular book... IMO, books are meant to be read and not necessarily rated. At least not by me anyhoo. Lol. 1mo
Billypar I rationalize giving too many five-star ratings by telling myself that I'm just really good at picking the best books to read 😁 1mo
julesG Some reviews are easy, but I also struggle with most. Especially since I don't want to write a recap, but just want to tell people what is good about a book. A lot of reviews are synopses, but don't give info on what's good and what not. 1mo
julesG @Billypar That's a great way of looking at it. I always think that it's MY rating, anybody else may think differently. 1mo
emz711 Agreed! I don't know how people have book blogs. I guess unless they get paid for it, then maybe I'd come up with something 1mo
CBee @bromeliad yes! That‘s exactly it!!! 1mo
CBee @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I didn‘t think of it that way! There should totally be a choice between so so and pick. Not sure what, but that‘s a good idea! 1mo
CBee @Billypar nailed it 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 1mo
CBee @emz711 oh yeah, pay me and I‘ll figure it out for sure 😂😂 1mo
CBee @julesG agreed! A lot of times too, I‘ve just finished and am still very much “in” the book. Maybe I should wait longer before trying to write any kind of “review.” 1mo

It‘s official, people. I am head over heels in love with Madeline Miller. Song of Achilles was beautiful, unconventional, romantic, bloody, heartbreaking, and full of mythical magic. Saying I loved this book doesn‘t even describe the way I feel. I mean, how do I even read again after this? 😂😂

I love, love, LOVE this series. I adore Theo, and the whole “solve crimes with science” is right up my alley. Yes, there are a lot of scientific explanations of things, and it can get a little wordy and confusing 😂 But, the concept is still genius and I love it. Can‘t wait for the next two, but might read something a little less “murder-y” now 😂
