I am already enjoying this one (the green light is from my “migraine“ bulbs). The book has both L and M which is great because then I will jump onto M right away! The only bad thing is it's too cumbersome to tote around.

I thought overall it's cute. Being originally from the Lower Rio Grande Valley I grew up with countless stories about the dangers of “her“ (don't want to spoil). Also, found a quote that I am in very much agreement with! Wax figures are terrifying!

So, it kinda frustrates me that there will be no more to this story. This one was a bit more “heavy“. It wasn't as funny with the little commentary on the bottom of each page. Also raised a lot about morality, ethics, and right/wrong. Overall I enjoyed it.

AkashaVampie Totally agree. Mental abuse sucks! Sometimes I wish I was beat cuz the pain would be over quicker 7d
ElizaMarie @AkashaVampie I am so sorry that you are struggling. It's so rough. I get what you are saying about that mental vs physical illness. I know it's so much easier to get empathy and understanding from your peers when it's a physical situation rather than a mental/emotional one. Know that there are people there in your corner. 3d

So, this is a no for me. If it wasn't a #BookClub read I would have #DNF the book, so it got somewhat interesting but... if you don't plan on reading the next in the series (which I am not interested enough in that) it is really a waste of time. Also maybe because this was #Audio instead of print, but all the names of the places and people got jumbled for me, not sure if the print has some sort of map or something.

So I am about 40% in on this one. It took me a bit to get into it. I almost DNF'd it at around the 20% mark because it felt like too familiar of a story. It still feels that way but it is not peaking my interest. I have 4 loads of laundry to fold and put away today. So I will be listening along :)

I listened to this on recommendation from @ChrissyReadIt . It was so great! I have been working with my therapist on breath work to help tame down some of my anxiety, so I feel like this was right in that direction. I loved learning the science behind it.

Chrissyreadit Yay!!! I‘m so glad! I love it- but still have 3 hours left - I had to return to library and waiting for my turn again. I May just buy it so I can take notes. 1mo

Actually, this wasn't too bad. Based on the artwork on the title, I was iffy about it. I thought it would be way less developed than it turned out to be, so pleasant surprise.

Of course, this is a pic! I loved learning more about Bundy from a woman who knew him personally. Also, it very much reads like her coming to terms with finding out the young man she befriended could be such a horrible man as well. I love the duality of it all.

I enjoyed this one. Especially the little snips of information at the bottom of each page. They were silly! I can't wait to get to book 2. I kept seeing book 2 at the comic store we frequent and then found book 1 in my things! Ha So fun when you find books!

I don‘t know what to think. I liked it overall but it did take a different vibe than I thought it would that really took me out of the story a bit. Anyway, overall a “pick”

DieAReader This one is on my TBR so I can‘t wait to hear what you think! I tried the hardcover last year but the print was WAY too small so I returned it (library). I‘ll be looking for a different format next time🙂 1mo
ElizaMarie @DieAReader, I am enjoying it so far. It has a lot of information, a lot of which I didn't really know. I mean, I followed /listened to several podcasts and documentaries about this. So it's that... But I love to hear more of the “human side of it“ because she was his friend and really didn't think he was a killer for a long time! 1mo
DieAReader @ElizaMarie The human & psychological aspects are what drew me to this one. Also WOW that she knew him but didn‘t KNOW him. I‘ll be looking forward to it! Keep enjoying it hun! 1mo
