Ordered this BOTM (mostly because @Liberty chose it)... but does it have any of the Lolita vibes of All the Ugly & Wonderful Things?

Only a so-so... 1. I didn‘t like how unreliable this unreliable narrator was. So. Many. Bad. Decisions. And 2. This book reminded me more of Dick Wolf‘s books than of a Girl on the Train/Gone Girl thriller, which is a little darker than I prefer.

It was funny. But I found that I didn‘t care at all what happened to the characters, so I almost struggled to stay with it. Overall, meh. 🤷🏼‍♀️

When I was *almost* done with this book, I was thinking that what made this book so interesting was the we knew the whole time the fact that you would expect to be the twist, so it wasn‘t a matter of figuring it out but rather of waiting for everyone else to figure it out.

Except that I was completely wrong and this book is excellent.

LOVED this courtroom drama. I loved how the change in perspective changed the truth of what had happened. There were “twists” everywhere as the perspectives changed, but they were subtle and intelligent. Absolutely loved it!

The other day I was telling one of my friends how incredible Ruth Ware‘s books are, and it occurred to me that there is no acceptable explanation for why this book has sat in my TBR for so long... 📚

UPDATE: the first 130 pages were pretty slow, but after that I didn‘t want to put this one down! Another great book by Ruth Ware!

Nine Perfect Strangers | Liane Moriarty
post image
Pickpick

I think this is a pick? 🤷🏼‍♀️ It took about 300 pages before anything actually happened, which is pretty disappointing. What did happen was pretty far-fetched, which is even more disappointing. But I liked all of the nine characters so much, I finished the book in about 3 sittings. I think I like it better than Truly Madly Guilty, but I found myself wondering if there‘s a comparison to be made to Frances...

We went to a hockey game the other night, for the first time since reading Beartown, and I found myself thinking about Benji and Amat and Kevin. I can‘t get these characters out of my head! I‘m very excited to start Us Against You.

Completely aside from the fact that I can‘t put this book down, YAAAAASS THIS QUOTE! Certainly there are books, story lines, characters that speak to us because of how closely they hit to home, but I‘m always taken aback when there‘s just a solitary line or sentiment that hits right on target.

“That way lies madness.” YES, that.

I think I‘m bailing on All Your Perfects... 🤷🏼‍♀️ I‘m just not attached to those characters at all. I‘m at chapter 19 and feel like nothing has really happened. At the very least, it‘s not a Sunday morning read. Starting The Last Mrs. Parrish while I finish this cup of coffee! 📚☕️

My immediate reaction is that I disliked this book. While the cover is gorgeous, I‘m left with the same feeling I had at the end of I‘m Thinking Of Ending Things - why did I read that? What did it matter? Maybe after it sinks in, my opinion will change... but at least for right now I think it‘s a dislike. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Circe | Madeline Miller
post image
Pickpick

I don‘t think I‘ll be able to say enough about how much I appreciate Circe. Usually I read for a break and a distraction (it‘s my version of not being able to sit still), which is probably why I read so many fast-paced thrillers. Circe is NOT one of those books. But I still didn‘t want to put it down, and hearing Madeline Miller talk about her process & inspiration only made me love it more. It‘s more than just a good story, it‘s brilliant.

tpixie What did Madeline have to say? And how exciting to see her! 14mo

I‘ve picked up It Ends With Us SO many times walking through a bookstore, but have always ended up setting it back down for some reason... but I feel like I keep running into Colleen Hoover books right now, and although it looks like they might not be my usual read, I‘m feeling inspired to pick up a couple. Thoughts? Suggestions? Help? 🤷🏼‍♀️📚

This book is not a quick read like the thrillers and mysteries I like so much. I‘ve found that if I try to read it that way, I miss things. So I started it over this week, and this time around I‘m thoroughly enjoying the story. (Also the furry company.) ☕️📖🏡🐕💗

Honestly I can‘t decide between this one being a pick or just so-so. I‘m pretty sure I hated Erin. I‘m glad I didn‘t bail, the ending was worth reading - and is the only reason I‘m unsure about my hatred. But I disliked her so much I almost didn‘t care what happened to her in the end.

Also, in my head, it‘s the plane from Before The Fall. 😬

A very quick read. I didn‘t dislike it at all. I didn‘t necessarily guess the twist, and knowing the twist changed what I thought the story was. (And I love when a twist makes me go back and understand the story differently.) It seemed to be hinting that it should all be read a second time, knowing the twist. But knowing, I didn‘t really care to read it again.

HELP! I need help prioritizing my TBR stack(s)! In 2 weeks we leave for 10 days in Hawaii... 1) I cant decide what to read between now and the time we leave?! (Leaning toward The Flight Attendant) AND 2) any good recommendations that are not in this stack that I can get for my kindle? Thinking about only bringing the kindle on the trip. Thanks, guys! 📚🤷🏼‍♀️

LiteraryinLititz There are lots of books in your stack that are in my TBR as well, but the ones I‘ve read are The Lying Game and Eligible. I recommend both! 1y
