I rarely want to pick up the next book in a trilogy immediately. I usually like to give it a breather. Not this time! #3 in The Opportunist series. Yes, please!

Puredragonstar I love your mug!! 💜💜💜 2y

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

One thing I love about checking books out from the library is that when they are almost due, I can tell everyone to leave me alone and binge read legimately. 😁

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!

StephanieGeiser I just picked up a copy of this. I was excited to read it before but now I can‘t wait! 2y
MelAnn This is an awesome book and I also have her newer one about money. Love her writing style! 2y

1. Neil Gaiman. He's adorable, and he would tell the best stories in that fabulous voice of his.

2. Chris Isaak!

3. Coffee or wine. Hardly original.

It took me far too long to finish, but it was very good! I love this author. She's helping me enjoy the fantasy genre again. The best part? I recommended it to my adult daughter and it turns out we are reading it together. She's already on book three though!

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?

Reviewsbylola That‘s a hard argument sometimes. My current book is not a page turner either but I still enjoy picking it up. It‘s just a quieter novel. It‘s when I dread picking up a book or look for excuses to do anything other than read that I know it‘s an issue. 2y

Marilyn1970 @Bostonmomx2 It does have a lot of great reviews, but the negative ones are very very negative. This book is pretty pedestrian. I'm only 75% through, but so far there's nothing crazy. Kristian Higgins is wonderful! 2y

I enjoyed it a lot! The suspense fell flat for me though. I kept expecting more, so I read faster and faster. In the end, it was a good read, consistent, and it definitely kept my interest! I just wish there has been more suspense.

The first 100 pages have flown by. I can't believe I've never read anything by this author before!

Marilyn1970 I honestly didn't want to put this book down. I can't say that about many books these days, so when I say it, it's for the real! One if my very favorite thrillers of the year. It kept me on the edge of my seat steadily throughout, but the ending zinged me at least twice. What a story!!! 2y

Black Lies | Alessandra Torre
Pickpick

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.

I enjoyed the story, but the main character wasn't all that likeable. There was enough mystery to keep me engaged and interested though. Overall, I'm glad I read it.

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.
