Second in The Opportunists series. I've tried to read Tarryn Fisher before, and couldn't get into it, but this series grabbed me. It's bubblegum fiction, but it's good bubblegum fiction.
1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I love him and his books, it just didn't keep my interest to the end. I may finish one day though.
2. Does wine or coffee count as a snack?
3. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty
My friend won this ARC copy from Goodreads and let me borrow it. Lucky me! I adore a good murder mystery and this is likely the best I've read this year. There is so more to this story than meets the eye and I was actually left guessing til the last chapter! #murdermystery #jenniferhillier #thriller
I tried to read this last year and could not get into it. I guess it wasn't the right time, because I randomly grabbed if from my bookshelf and find myself blown away. It's time to stop doubting your greatness! Which I literally had to stop myself from doing as I wrote that sentence. Ugh!
83% through... I've been enjoying it, but it's also been slow going. Can a book be considered "good", even though it's not a real page turner?
I have cracks on my Paperwhite! 😭 I don't even know how it happened!
The first 100 pages have flown by. I can't believe I've never read anything by this author before!
I can't remember the last time a book held me in ransom until I finished it. Black Lies sure as heck did. What a great way to spend an afternoon. It wasnt just a boy meets girl and they have lots of incredible sex story, although that's certainly an element. There are secrets for him and for her. And it's not the sort of secrets anyone would suspect. Give it a read. I promise you'll enjoy it. I even had a little cry at the end.
A dear friend suggested this one, so I nominated it for my Book Club's September read!
Good insight into what it takes to be a writer while remaining aceessable and humorous. It's a great read so far!
I never knew much about Jean Harlow... A friend gave me this book and I absolutely loved it. David Stern wrote an wonderful biography and kept it very interesting and evenly paced. Nothing was sensational, and there were a staggering amount of footnotes. I was very impressed and have found a new respect for the sweet actress who died far too young.
