I am not yet sure what I think of this book. It was very well written, but some of the subject was hard to get around. #LMPBC @Hazel2019 @booksellerofyourdiscontent @Littlewolf1

This was a #bookclub pick. If not for that I don‘t think I would have finished this book. Romance is not my cup of tea, sex on the subway!?!(thank goodness for fast forwarding) Have you ever seen how dirty those are? I listened to this while I reorganized the library.

Soubhiville Um, ew. I‘m with you there- no way on the subway. I do want to read this though. 1w
TheAromaofBooks A while back I read a book and the romantic couple had to take shelter from the weather in a cottage that “hadn't been used in years“ and then shagged on the blankets - I could NOT get past how gross that sounded!! 😳 1w
tracey38 Yeah, that is really gross this is on my tbr though. 1w

@BooksNBowls @KateReadsYA @sprainedbrain these are the ones that I have. They are more adult, more spooky. #LMPBC #groupW

sprainedbrain I‘ve read the top two (both SO GOOD in different ways)… but I‘d be happy with either of the bottom two! 2w
BooksNBowls I pick The Color of Fear. Sounds really interesting 2w

I found this on @vivastory page. I hade never heard of this graphic novel, but it was an eye opener on cults. I did not know how much of some cults influences we are still dealing with. FYI. I have always hated the line “ today is the first day of the rest of your life”.

I did not realize that this was part of a series. I had never read any of the Inspector Gamache books before. That is why the so-so.

CarolynM I can see why this book might not make a lot of sense out of the context of the series. 3mo

If you like food, cooking and relationship angst this is a series for you. It is adorable in a one person is jealous of everyone, and the food looks so good.

This was an audiobook and it was ok. It just was not as interesting as some of the other true crime I had read.

Tbh I wish I had read this before reading The Five. This book was well written and well researched. Parts of it made me very angry it was not the book. It was the Attitudes of the the people. How racist, classists and just uggg.

I read this book and I did not realize it was by the author of Freshwater. I read Freshwater when it was first released and I wish I had read Pet first. While the books are not about the same characters it helped me understand Freshwater a bit better.
