The Maidens: A Novel | Alex Michaelides

I was impressed. So many twists! I LOVED that this book had ties to his first book The Silent Patient. Brought so much more perspective to both of them having read both.

And so, when a man comes along & talks like ones own father & acts like him, even adults.. will submit to this man, will acclaim him, allow themselves to be manipulated by him & put their trust in him, finally surrendering entirely to him without even being aware of their enslavement. One is not normally aware of something that is a continuation of ones own childhood.

I went to an ADULT book fair (who knew that was a thing!) and got 19 books for $10 😊 I‘m so excited for the books I picked! I got some great true crime, history, sci fi, and some good non fiction. My tbr just doubled 😅 and I just ordered a new 2 new book last week 😳

Wow. Just started this book not long ago and I‘m flying through it! Even at work. So far I am LOVING it! Pretty much my cup of tea since it‘s Murder and mental illness. A.M has yet to disappoint me 🥰

I haven't been active in a few months. I got a promotion at my job and it has taken up so much of my time trying to train and deal with the new hours! But, it's all worth it since it comes with more money! (who doesn't like more money? 😁)
Anyways, I hope all you lovely people are doing amazing! I finally have time now to start reading again! 😍

Oh how I love me some Kristin Hannah 💕

I did receive some news the other day. My work is going to be taken over by new owners. They officially take over on the 18th. I hope that they run the place better than the current owner did. He‘s a 76 year old man who is definitely stuck in his old perverted ways 🤢 here‘s to a new start!

Wow strong notes of underage attraction and infidelity in this one. Totally not a fan. Surprisingly though, I finished it. With a knot in my stomach the entire time.
I just don‘t get the appeal of authors writing about underage sex like it is something to be proud of.
Sooooo much drinking, that every single one of them should go to an AA meeting.. and what was with all the lattes?! 🙄

Wow. Just.. wow. This book was so heartbreaking. The struggles all of those people went through. Love was what got them through it all.
Kristen Hannah easily became one of my favorite authors because of just how passionate she is in her writing. She definitely blew me away with this one.

“They say that a persons personality is the sum of their experiences. But that isn‘t true, at least not entirely, because if our past was all that defined us, we‘d never be able to put up with ourselves. We need to be allowed to convince ourselves that we‘re more than the mistakes we made yesterday. That we are all of our next choices, too, all of our tomorrow‘s.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I felt as if the ending was left unfinished. I think the author should have had the help arrive and Kieran tell what happened. That way the truth came out and the families could all get closure on what really happened that night of the big storm and what really happened to Bronte.
Other wise, I thought that the story was a delightful and quick read. Was a perfect fit for the thunderstorms and cloudy days I have had here where I live!

Just amazing! Some parts were ehh. But overall I enjoyed it!

Eliza was probably my favorite. For such a young kid shes stronger than most people. She followed her gut, used magic to sacrifice herself for Nella (though she lived!)

Caroline, I give major props! Left a cheating husband & now she‘s finally following her dreams & is damn good at it!

Oh poor Nella, defending so many women throughout her life. I loved her. We need more women like her

So I‘m not very far in the book, but why in the WORLD would Nella sell a poison to a child?! Even if it‘s technically to someone else.
And why do men who cheat, think the female is stupid? If we are asking you a specific question; don‘t lie. We already know 😭

I was not a big fan of this book. I felt as if the author didn‘t have any idea of what she wanted the story to be and was just gradually piecing her ideas together.
There were a lot of characters that I felt were unnecessary to the entire story and I felt that it could have been better without them.
The bases of the story would have been good if the author would have spent more time on the actual details instead of creating new characters.

As someone who has endure physical and mental abuse in relationships in my past, I was 100% on Lilas side the entire time. I could NOT put this book down. This, by far, topped all the books I‘ve read so far this year.
I‘m so happy that Lila got relief(+ a boat load of money lol) and justice was served to the Payne brothers.

**Funny their last name is Payne and they caused so much for everyone in their lives.

“Three words, large enough to tip the world. I remember you.”

In the end, love always wins. Addies love for Henry, over powered all. She left her mark on the world, simply by loving Henry. After 300 years, she finally found a way for the world to hear her story, from the hands of her one true love.
It was such a powerful thing for her to let him go and be with the darkness. But, Addie is stronger than the shadow will ever be. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I absolutely hate giving up on a book so early on, especially THIS early on. Not even half way.
Right off the bat, the description the author used as “contemporary America” is kind of ridiculous to me.
I feel that in some parts she left out very necessary information, then had too much in other parts that didn‘t add up to what she was going for.
Plus, IMO, she uses an extreme amount of analogies and I find that slightly bothersome.

“One second after an EMP attack, it will be too late to ask two simply questions: what should we have done to prevent the attack and why didn‘t we do it?”

I absolutely LOVED this book and thoroughly enjoyed it I‘ve learned so much about the potential happenings of an EMP attack that for some reason, still to this day, is sought out to be not very important.

What would you do if you were brought back to the dark ages?

Today, I said my final goodbye to my grandfather. He was a Vietnam War Veteran, full blooded Indian who had the heart & soul that comes with it. He helped so many lives in his short one he got in this earth. But he looked so peaceful,& that‘s what he deserves. Cancer sucks for the person & people who have to watch it destroy them. Thank you so much though, to everyone‘s cards and kind words! Means so much to my family & I that you reached out ❤️

Well, the book was an extremely fast read, which I liked. I do wish however, that the book had more murders and more crazy twists like they did for the show. The show, in my opinion, was better and well thought out. The book was still a pretty good read and I enjoyed it.
