Inside Out | Demi Moore

I flew through Demi Moore‘s moving memoir. I really admire the strength and courage it must have taken to put this out there for the world to pick apart. I loved this so much!

Institute | Stephen King
post image

I enjoyed Stephen King‘s newest novel about an institute that experiments on children showing signs of telekinesis and telepathy. I liked this more than his earlier novel The Outsider but it‘s still lacking that old spark he used to have. It‘s worth the read though! 👍🏼

Oh dear Jason Arnopp how I love you, let me count the ways....I loved his first novel Last Days of Jack Sparks and I LOVE Ghoster too!! He‘s one of my favorites writing in the genre of horror and I can‘t wait until the next! Check out Ghoster when it releases this month on the 22nd. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 💜😱💀👻

This was ok......I really wanted to love it but the ridiculous drawn out action scenes killed it for me. It wasn‘t horrible, just not for me.

Imaginary Friend | Steven Chbosky
post image

I LOVED this book!! This is Stephen Chbosky‘s first adult debut and it‘s in the genre of horror so I couldn‘t be happier! LOTS of creep factor here, biblical references, and a strong mother/son bond. As much as I loved this book, this is not for everyone...

Spontaneously combusting children is the premise here - as crazy as that sounds it comes across completely normal. This is a hilarious and endearing novel about what it means to be family.

Ninth House | Leigh Bardugo
post image
Pickpick

I absolutely loved this book! Ninth House is Leigh Bardugo‘s Adult Fantasy debut. I found myself actually putting this down because I didn‘t want it to end 🤣. It definitely ends on a cliffhanger so there will be more! Be prepared for some major triggers, ghosts, gore, magic, and secret societies 😈.

Hannah_Haymond I'm SO excited for this one to come out next week... but this is the 3rd or 4th post I've read mentioning trigger warnings in it. Are you able to elaborate, even just high level? I don't want to be caught off guard 3w
Mirandareads @Hannah_Haymond Triggers for sexual assault! 3w
Hannah_Haymond @Mirandareads Sigh. Ok. Good to know, thank you for the info! 3w

This was very different from what I had expected. It is an excellent coming of age novel! Beautifully written 💜.

Pruzy I agree! It was well written, although I feel the advertising for this book oversold the horror elements 2mo
Mirandareads @Pruzy I completely agree!! I‘ve seen people commenting on how excited they were to read it with a #horror. I want to warn them but then again I feel they might benefit from reading it 😁. 2mo
Pruzy @Mirandareads It was still an emotionally moving story with horror adjacent elements! 2mo
Mirandareads @Pruzy It was indeed! 2mo

I sincerely hope that everyone reads this book as soon they can! It releases September 10th!! Malcolm Gladwell has done a PHENOMENAL job! This was my first of his to read and I‘m just completely blown away.

jillrhudy It came out today and I'm a couple of chapters in and really liking it. 1mo
Mirandareads @jillrhudy Yes it did!🙌🏼 I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I found it to be pretty profound. 1mo

I cannot put into words what an absolute must read this is. This is an incredible and haunting novel based on very real events and places that will and should stay with you long after finishing it.

I was able to get about three quarters through this one and then just couldn't do it any longer. There are really funny parts but the majority is so all over the place and at times overally detailed that it was very hard to stick with it.

This seems to be one that people are torn on how they feel about it. For me I came away after reading this feeling that it‘s one everyone should at least read. It is eye opening and I felt the author did a wonderful job. I was absolutely fascinated by the homes and people she met while cleaning. I‘m happy to see this book has received the attention that it has and wish her all the success.

This book was ok....I really wanted to love this but it had so many characters, points of view, and other things, that it made it difficult to keep it all straight so I could really get into it. I have to say I did enjoy the ending, and since this is the first in the series maybe it will get better??

I‘m clearly the only one so far to make a negative review about this one. I found it to be predictable and far fetched (not in a good way). The only positive I can say is that it was well written. The story just didn‘t do it for me. 🙁
