I Let You Go | Clare Mackintosh

Even better than I See You. I felt like part of the resolution was unnecessary, but overall it had me just as compelled as Gone Girl.

It reminds me of summer because I read it every August. I love its characters so much I miss them through the rest of the year. It's functional, not fancy. #sweetsummerstack

Wow. Just as powerful as American Psycho. Disturbing in every true sense of the word. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for the writing, but 👎 for the subject matter.

bitterbear I was just thinking that it was a mix of American Psycho and Lolita.... 3y

Do I have any friends that could get through this book? I've read it all as far as sociopaths and creepers, murderers and molesters.... But this book just makes me cringe.

So I bombed out on the #readathon and spent more time sleeping than reading and only finished one book, but I'll soldier on tomorrow.

In better news, I did get ALL OF THESE at the library sale I went to instead of reading. Including the greatest title I've ever seen. Gonna use it for my micropress read in the read harder challenge.

Kill the Next One | Frederico Axat
Mehso-so

Meh. I feel like the book could have used a better structure than simply Part I, Part II, Part III, etc. It didn't tie well enough for me.. But I expect a lot out of my bouncing narratives with unreliable narration.

Didn't like how the author voiced Caliban AT ALL. Just because he doesn't speak the language doesn't mean he's simple. Very disappointing.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ so informative, but still so human. The author interweaves historic chronicling with personal experience to great effect. A powerful history of the movement for equal rights.

Alright. I feel like I'm supposed to feel empathy for Ralph Angel in spite of his being an ENORMOUS ASS TO EVERYONE.. But I just can't do it. What. A. Douche.

Chelleo Agreed. The tv show character is a lot easier to sympathize with. 3y
Kerouacthedog @Chelleo I agree. The show makes him much more rounded and full as a character than the novel does. 3y
