One of the members of my library leadership group loves this book, so I thought I‘d give it a try.

I signed up for the 30-day Scribd trial. We shall see if I love it more than Audible for audiobooks. Any thoughts?

Bookworm83 I‘m trying it out, too and it seems to have a lot of popular audiobooks. I‘ve never had Audible because I don‘t listen to enough audiobooks to justify the cost, but I can probably spring for $9 a month 🙃 1y
Lacythebookworm @Bookworm83 Have you tried out the ebooks? Are you reading them on your phone? Tablet? Sorry, so many questions! 🤔 1y

Finished just in time for dinner. This book is quick (started it yesterday at lunch). The suspense is built from the very first sentence: “The baby is dead.” If you‘re looking for a psychological thriller with deep dives into the characters‘ psyches, I would certainly recommend it.

Thanks to @Miss__astrid for the Instant Pot Coq au Vin recipe! Delish! #feedareader

The Pisces: A Novel | Melissa Broder
post image
Pickpick

Two recent books that I‘ve read featuring mer-people 🧜‍♂️🧜‍♀️ that couldn‘t be more different. The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock is historical fiction with a merchant, courtesan, and of course, a mermaid. The writing is charming.

The Pisces on the other hand is contemporary and has a lot of sex between a woman and her merman friend. (Any questions you may have about having a sexual encounter with a merman are answered ☺️) A weird one, but a pick.

IamIamIam The cover on The Pisces!!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 1y
Lacythebookworm @IamIamIam It‘s a pretty good indicator of the contents! 🤣 1y
