Loving this book so far!! And the mug that was given to me by my mom (not usually religious but this mug really spoke to me lately) and my usual hot cocoa before bed.
Can‘t wait to finish this book!

Had a rough week took a break from reading. My father in law passed away couldn‘t concentrate. Going to try reading this book again, need an escape from my emotions. The title is a little disturbing at a time like this, but everyone says it‘s great. So I shall try and read the night away. Next few days will be rather hard for my family and husband.

Hated it!! My picks of 2020 are very disappointing.
A girl who strives to be in a ballet company, her best friend who was kidnapped years ago returns(this part was so annoying, the author draggged this to the end), and also deals with eating disorders and abuse.
This book sounded like it had promise but failed completely for me!!

Scouting out wedding venues. On this “beautiful day” suppose to be 70 in nyc but felt like 30 because of the wind and water. Chilled for a bit with this book I tagged. Very interesting 🤔
Doesn‘t it give you game of thrones vibes? Lol, well maybe bad picture but huge castles around here

I‘m mixed between pick and so-so... great ending and definitely didn‘t suspect it at all (to me that means the most). I didn‘t love the multiple POV of every character in the book which kind of made it boring during some pivotal parts.
I‘m a sucker for a “who dun it?” Mystery book so I‘ll say give it a chance if you have patience. If you don‘t, then maybe pass on this one. ✋🏽the ending paid off for me tho.

So... the first few chapters starts off amazing! Then forced myself to read much of the middle part of the book. Then towards the very end I became interested again. I feel they gave away who “the chain” really is a little bit too early. It was like duhhh right in your face so it didn‘t really come as a twist?
But I still give this book about 2.75/5
Great plot story, just could have been delivered more cleverly... perhaps? 🤷🏻‍♀️ @lele1432 u?

lele1432 Oh wow, I gave it the exact same 2.75 lol! Mine was a so-so because although I felt the beginning was strong, it did lose my attention as it went on. I liked the background on who the chain was run by, but agree it was probably revealed too early. And I thought it became a little too unbelievable for my taste. Thanks for the tag!! 2w
Curly_Caffeinated_Reader Yess I wanted to hear yr opinion lol. I was hoping u didn‘t love it. Good taste like always @lele1432 2w

So a lot has happened in my personal life recently, my autoimmune disease kicked my ass in December which led to me being “laid off” from my job (pretty much kicking me when I was already done)I have to find another job and defer my seat in a nursing program I was suppose to start in a 3weeks. I‘ve been reading to get my mind off it while I start interviewing.
So anyways, are there any #bookclubs preferably thriller ..?
I need to stop wallowing.

lele1432 I‘m so sorry to hear that! It can be so difficult being sick and having to deal with work situations. Sending hugs and positive energy! (edited) 2w

This was an amazing read into the “sugar baby” world. I found Nat very naive, but that‘s what made her so interesting in this book.
What happens when you fall in love with a married sugar daddy, and it‘s your first love??
Very good read with a twist as the end I wasn‘t expecting, I really thought it was someone else..
Fun fast read, highly recommend!

Crimson613 Idk why I immediately thought this sounds like the plot line of a fanfiction story xD 2w

Mehso-so

What can I say..? Uhmm so it was a good book, I can not dispute that. However I usually like court room books, but this one just had me wanting to skim through some parts (which I can‘t, I need to read everything).
It was a good book just wasn‘t for me.

lele1432 I‘ve heard such good things about this and I own it but haven‘t read it yet. Now I‘m hoping I don‘t end up disappointed lol. 3w
Curly_Caffeinated_Reader @lele1432 yea I heard a lot of great things too. You might like it tho, just for me it was too much court room drama for my taste. But Ill still rate it as a good book, but the whole law and order vibe just not my cup of tea right now. The story was very good, it left me stuck in the middle rooting for both sides. So who knows 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3w

Hmmm.. so finished this book. My last book of 2019!!
I have to say I disliked most of the characters, the guys were stereotypical “men”, and the females were either too weak or too strong to a fault. The storyline however did keep me reading, but with each page I disliked the 2 sisters, and Tate more and more. The title pretty much sums up the book 🤷🏻‍♀️

I thought i was going to DNF this at the first 20 pages, then it got better. That‘s why I never DNF a book until I‘m half way through with the book. You never know🤷🏻‍♀️
However this book maybe isn‘t my cup of tea? Or possibly it was overhyped? I have a a third of the book left, I‘ll finish in the morning, it is a quick read tho and short chapters so it goes by fast.. I‘ll leave my review tomorrow.

This book was amazing; I should have seen the ending but I completely didnt! So it was a welcoming surprise and I did like the ending, however I wish this was a series chronicling what happens after “the ending” don‘t want to post spoilers. Or made into a movie. Idk I just really loved this one. West world meets orphan black for sure!

This was a fast cute read. Characters were kind of 2 dimensional but it felt ok for what the story was about. Wish it could have been a little bit more realistic, however nice getaway from the thrillers I‘ve been reading, lighthearted and nothing too deep. For an easy read I would pick this.
