Spending this drizzly afternoon indoors. Time to curl up with this #LMPBC pick.

In 2019 "The Cure" for aging is accidentally discovered. Soon nearly everyone and their mother are taking the cure in hopes to live hundreds if not thousands of more years, creating a dystopia that will make your stomach turn. Both gruesome and fascinating. I had a hard time putting this one down. ???

I don't want to give much away but if you like the circus, mermaids andddd librarians, this book is for you! 🤣I liked this one. It flips smoothly between present day and the 1700's and would make the perfect vacation or beach read! 🧜‍♀️🧜‍♂️

Kaye Beautiful and powerful. How did he get that name ? Thanks for posting. 3w
wanderinglynn What a cutie! ❤️🐱 3w
Mynameisacolour Always happy to have a reason to share photos of the kitties! Before the neighbors moved and left him behind they called him marshmallow but when we took him in we already had two other cats named after characters from Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games trilogy so we continued with that theme. He reminded us most of The character Haymitch because he had the scruffy and down on his luck thing going for him at the time. 3w

I'm feeling good about what and how much I've been able to read so far this year. Also decided to "live my best life"and treat myself to more YA books with a goal of at least one per month.

Out of The Easy | Ruta Sepetys
post image
Pickpick

4.5 🌟 This was a fun and entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed the rich descriptions of life in the Big Easy as well as Sepety's characters. Josie is the daughter of a wretched prostitute who is always pulling the rug out from beneath her at every opportunity. Josie wants to get out of Lousiana and out from the dark cloud her mother has cast over her future and start a life for herself. Full of twists and turns this is her story.

Violet Henderson is said to be the last person to see her friend alive in the small town of Normal, Alabama. The townsfolk all blame her for the death of the girl although she was only 14 when her friend disappears & really has no motive to hurt her. Violet is put in a psychiatric hospital for the rest of her childhood. Once released she comes home and the truth of the past is uncovered. Entertaining enough. Between a so-so & pick. So, Rounding up

Based on a true crime story, this is a fictionalized account of 11 year old kidnapping victim, Sally Horner's plight told from multiple perspectives. This story follows Sally as she travels the country with her captor and child predator, Frank LaSalle. Obviously disturbing but compelling and very well written. This will break your heart and make you hold your dear ones closer.

90's music was awesome but I didn't actually own a CD player until about 1998ish and these were some of the first albums I acquired through birthdays and Christmas. Had I been older I would have bought stuff like Lenny Kravitz, The Toadies, Monster Magnet and Smashing pumpkins to name a few!

Ruth and Dolly are sisters who grow up living out of their unstable alcoholic mothers station wagon. They are subjected to extreme neglect. The only bright spot in their lives are the stories they make up to get themselves through. These poor girls lives were a total mess and the writing was pretty disjointed at times. It did have some imaginative and interesting bits that kept me reading but over all this was mehhh. #ReadingUSA2019 #California

monalyisha I read this forever ago & I remember both being like “parts of that were lovely” & “I‘m so confused about what I just read. Did it actually make any sense?” 2mo
Mynameisacolour @monalyisha Yes! It was sort of like trying to jam about four really pretty partial puzzles together to make a whole. It just didn't come together very well 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo

Reading this feels like being roped into sitting through a sales demonstration for a product that I don't have money or a use for .. Interesting summary and intriguing prologue. At 60% of the way through I am still waiting for the story to get back to the character and timeframe that lured me in. 😒
