Dolores Claiborne | Stephen King

I saw this movie years ago and always liked it. Decided to finally give it a read after finishing Gerald‘s Game, as the two are loosely connected. This is now my 2nd favorite SK book behind Doctor Sleep. Dolores is a badass, and I love the way this story is told. It‘s so good that I‘m considering buying the audiobook and starting it this week! 5⭐️ Highly recommended!!

My 2nd SK book for this week is disturbing on so many levels. Such vivid imagery — I will never look at a pair of handcuffs the same way again! 😱 I‘m off to watch the movie on Netflix now. SK is definitely the master of horror. 4⭐️

I absolutely loved this book! Even better than The Shining imo. Some may not agree and that‘s ok. This is one of my favorite reads of 2019. Danny is such a great character. I‘m excited to see the movie next month but I‘m trying not to set my expectations too high. 5⭐️

I‘m doing something I normally don‘t do here and taking time out to tell you all how effing awesome this book is! I‘m only about 1/3 of the way through, but I‘m totally hooked! You know how it is, when you find a book you really love? And I‘m torn between wanting to binge read it the rest of the day or savor it slowly, because you can‘t get your first time reading something or watching something back (oh how I wish I could w/Mad Men!) Rant over 🤓

One word sums this short story up perfectly: Ew! 😱😭

I‘m giving it a pick because it definitely succeeds in being very disturbing/terrifying. But it definitely won‘t be some people‘s cup of tea.

This was a quick and disturbing read — should only take you about an hour to finish it (depending on how tired you are!😴) — and if you read it right before bed like I did, consider yourself blessed if you don‘t have dreams about bikers meeting their gruesome deaths at the hands of a crazed semi truck driver. 😱 Well worth the read! 4⭐️

After reading this book, I find myself feeling irrationally angry at Stanley Kubrick for not doing this masterpiece justice in the movie version. The book is so different from the movie. There is so much character development, and no cheesiness whatsoever. Genuinely frightening, especially the last third of the book — I was on the edge of my seat! 😱 5⭐️ Highly recommended!!

JenlovesJT47 @LeslieO @TrishB @sprainedbrain right?! I mean, don‘t get me wrong — Jack Nicholson is a phenomenal actor, but when you first see him in the movie you‘re automatically thinking he‘s a little crazy. Kind of defeats the purpose of the novel! 😵 2w

Book one down for the #screamathon — I‘ve always loved Fear Street books, and thanks to @AprilMae I finally have some of the recent reboots of Fear Street. This gets a pick for nostalgia‘s sake. It can be read pretty quickly. It was a little out there, but with lots of twists in true R.L. Stine fashion. 3.5⭐️

Got a bit behind on my reviews. Surgery is no joke!

Jess starts dating Ken Matthews and Liz is secretly fuming. She and Ken had a fling months back and nobody knew about it. Liz is such a bitch in this miniseries. She tries to sabotage Jess because she is jealous and thinks she might still be in love with Ken. 🙄

Meanwhile, Robin is moving away and new girl Heather becomes the new co-captain of the cheerleading squad. She quickly becomes ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 A huge rival of Jess and tries to take over the squad and turn them against her. She finally quits in a huff at the end of the book. I‘ve always loved this miniseries and it did not disappoint. 4⭐️ #SweetValley #SVH #twins #nostalgia 👯 3w

I just started watching Poldark last week and fell in love. I bought the first 3 books in the series a couple of years ago when they were on sale. Had to dive in shortly after starting the show. Thus far, the show is fairly true to the books. I love being swept away by the saga of the Poldark family. Would highly recommend!

Chrissyreadit I love the TV show also. 3w

This tells of the rivalry of Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli in the years leading up to WWII. A bit slow in places but definitely worth reading. It‘s told from the POV of a third party, the fictional character of Lily, recently widowed who becomes good friends with both designers. It‘s interesting learning about the different fashions of the day, and of course I‘m always interested in anything set in Paris. 3.5⭐️

Even though this story is a bit far-fetched, I found it enjoyable. Colette is on a trip to Paris with some classmates. People are being murdered, beheaded — and she sees the ghost of Marie Antoinette. The queen is taking her rage out on the descendants of those who betrayed her. Pure fluff but very entertaining. 3.5⭐️

This is somewhere between a so-so and pan for me. The writing style is odd — there is zero dialogue in this book, just long rambling paragraphs that tell instead of show what happens. Still, I was willing to give it a chance because the story had a lot of potential. Sadly, when I finished the last page, the story ended so abruptly and I was mad at myself for reading it. So many missed opportunities. 2⭐️

Gatsby's Girl | Caroline Preston

This is the historical fiction account of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s first love, Ginevra. They meet in 1916 when she is 16 and start an avid correspondence. Ginevra is an interesting character, and the book takes us through her growth as a person: spoiled, shallow rich girl, naive young wife and mother who neglects her husband and children, to divorcée who finally realizes what‘s important in life and gets a second chance at love. 4⭐️ ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 There‘s an air of sadness about this story, especially regarding Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, not to mention all of Ginevra‘s missed opportunities. But there‘s a lot of truth to it. I‘d highly recommend this to fans of the Jazz Age, historical fiction and/or the Fitzgeralds. #historicalfiction 2mo

Maybe there‘s something wrong with me but I found this story incredibly depressing and mostly pointless. I have never seen such a sad sack character as Amy, either in novel form or graphic novel.

Dear Mrs. Bird | A J Pearce

I really loved this book. Set in 1940-1941 in London during the Blitz, it tells the story of Emmy Lake. She works part-time as basically a secretary to the formidable Mrs. Bird at Woman‘s Friend magazine. It‘s her job to sort through the letters to the advice column. Mrs. Bird refuses to answer anything she deems “unacceptable”, so Emmy takes it upon herself to answer some in secret. Equal parts funny, sad & engaging, I‘d highly recommend it. 5⭐️

This story is so sad, but I couldn‘t put it down. It‘s based on the true story of Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children‘s Home Society. Tann stole children from their biological families and sold/adopted them out to rich people. It‘s despicable. The chapters about the Foss children are compelling, the present day story less so. Still, I‘m rounding it up from 4 to 5 stars because it‘s an important story people should know about.

Sigh. I‘ve just spent the last five weeks reading the entire Harry Potter series for the 3rd time. Book 7 is brilliant. I now feel like I have a book hangover and don‘t know what to do with myself. My hubby is telling me I need to finally read the Lord of the Rings. Maybe he‘s right. Anyhoo, I‘d give this book 10 stars if I could! 🤓

Whimsical.Curiosity Yassss LOTR! 2mo
GingerAntics I couldn‘t get past the second book of LotR. It‘s not really much like HP at all. Good luck with it. 2mo
Avanders So good. 🤗🤗 I agree... LOTR is not like HP at *all*.. way denser, but it‘s really really good. ♥️♥️ 2mo

I‘m gearing up for the Downton Abbey movie next month by reading this little gem. It‘s full of the show‘s best quotes, which are so relatable. Highly recommended for fans of the show. 5⭐️

I‘m a big fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and this is my first time reading a Rocket Raccoon graphic novel. I liked the first couple of issues the best, then it started to drag. But, had to give it an extra star for the artwork by Skottie Young. He‘s the best! 4⭐️

This was a great suspense story. I knew there would be some sort of twist and I was waiting for it the whole time. I was not disappointed. Overall, a fast read that will keep you guessing and will be hard to put down until the end. 4⭐️

I‘m a few weeks late posting this, but I found these beauties at the used bookstore a few weeks ago. I‘m currently learning French — nowhere close to fluent but I hope to be someday. I plan on listening to the audiobooks in English while reading along with these. I hope I stumble across the others sometime. Used bookstores are like a treasure hunt for book lovers! 🤓

Sue has been faux kidnapped by Jeremy, with Jeremy hoping he can weasel a half a million dollars out of the Wakefields. It is slowly beginning to dawn on dear, dense Sue that Jeremy only cares about her money. He‘s not going to be too happy when he finds out it‘s a briefcase full of fake money! 😱 The subplot with Todd and Lila dressing up as power workers to stop the kidnapper was hilarious. I‘m curious to see how this all ends in book 111. 3⭐️

IamIamIam Lol, I'm so impressed that you're still keeping up with these!!! 2mo
JenlovesJT47 @IamIamIam it‘s like a train wreck I can‘t stop watching! 😆 or a bad soap opera. But so entertaining when I‘m in the mood to read but not think too much! 2mo

I have now officially read all of TJR‘s books. This one was a roller coaster of emotions to get through and I might need to watch I Love Lucy to cheer myself up. 😪 Still, definitely worth reading. I started it this morning and have been useless all day until I finished it. 4⭐️

I found this super entertaining for some reason. In the last book, Jess crashed Jeremy & Sue‘s wedding by announcing her undying love for Jeremy. Her parents threaten her with boarding school, but she doesn‘t care. Jeremy then proposes to Jess but tells her to keep it secret. He “goes to Costa Rica” but something is fishy. Turns out Sue‘s mom left her a ton of money but with conditions. So what exactly is going on here? Can‘t wait to find out!

Lauranahe I LOVED these books back in the day! I felt like I was an Elizabeth, but I wanted so bad to be a Jessica. I read them ALL. And coincidentally (maybe?), my oldest daughter‘s name is Elizabeth. 2mo
JenlovesJT47 @Lauranahe lol me too! I always wanted to be more like Jessica. I‘m doing a read-through of all the SVH books in order (and trying to collect them all). It‘s so fun! All of the books in the regular series are on kindle unlimited. 🤗 2mo
Lauranahe Oh my gosh! That makes me want to reread them all. 2mo

1. Nothing really pops to mind because I eat small amounts of whatever I want to keep myself from going insane. But I do on occasion drink too much Mt Dew! 😬
2. My French copies of the last two Harry Potter books I found at the used bookstore. 🤓
3. Tagged. I‘ve gotten little else read the last few weeks as I make my way through HP for the third time. ⚡️

Volume 32 isn‘t in the system yet, but The Walking Dead comics have finally come to an end in issue #193. Overall, I‘m satisfied with the way it ended. It was time. I do think this volume was overly long and dragged at the end. Still, can‘t complain too much. It‘s been a wild ride! 4⭐️

JacqMac Waiting patiently, or not so patiently, for this one to arrive. Canadian Amazon is getting really bad with their release day deliveries. (edited) 2mo
