The problem with reading a book in a series as part of a reading challenge is that you then want to read the rest of the series whether they fit prompts or not. #3 was another great part of this series. I love how she takes a different member of the squad with each book, so they‘re related but also can stand alone.

I tried. For months. I just couldn‘t. I made it 75% through before I allowed myself to put it down.
Also got seriously behind on the #booked2109 reading challenge...

Cinfhen Are we still ready to start this book on Sunday @vivastory @peaknit @Cathythoughts @lele1432 I‘m still waiting for library copy but I‘m happy to buy the audio if you want to start this week. 7d

lele1432 @Cinfhen either way is good for me, my audio loan is available in a few days! 😊 7d
vivastory @Cinfhen I'm fine with waiting until your audio loan is available 7d
peaknit @Cinfhen I‘m ready when you are, it was available for kindle, so locked and loaded. I‘m struggling with Monster...😳 7d
Cinfhen Sorry we hijacked your feed @Marni lf everyone is ready to go I‘ll just pick up a copy on Audible or Kindle and we can start on Sunday @Cathythoughts @lele1432 @vivastory @peaknit ( sorry, you aren‘t loving Monster) there was a chunk in the middle that was a little dry but because I was listening on audio too I was able to sort of listen with one ear but still do other things. It pays to muddle through. Or not 😘 7d

Finished!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. I am very curious to now watch the movie. So much of the book depended on seeing everything through the main character, who spent most of the book blindfolded. I can‘t imagine how that will translate on screen, but looking forward to it! #read2019

Saw this pop up a ton so I got it on audiobook from the library. It went quickly! Really enjoyed the book, not sure I‘d enjoy is the right word, but definitely powerful and eye opening.

Walking into the Apple Store when you‘re 75% down with the book is downright disturbing!!

Going to use this for the #Booked2019 #booktomovie prompt

Loved the book and the series! Meyer seamlessly weaves each character and book into the story already taking place. Loved every minute! And figured out that this final one will count for my #foodbeveragecover prompt in the #booked2019 challenge! I got sucked into this series so I‘m glad 2/4 books counted!

Do you have a book that just is like a security blanket? When things are rough and you can‘t tell up from down you just dive into it and it helps settle everything inside. This is that book for me. Just downloaded the audio version from my library. It‘ll be the 3rd time I‘ve read it. #read2019 #onwardandupward

First book I finished in February. Wolfe really captures what collegiate life is like, from class to frat houses to athletics. In many ways, this mirrored my experience of being the student so much was expected of to falling quickly into a morass of bacchanalia. He painted such an accurate picture of how slippery that slope is and how easy it is to fall. Well worth the 30 hours I spent listening.
