It seems readers either love or hate this book. I haven‘t yet decided but it‘s worth the read. I completely want to shake the main character but that‘s probably why I keep reading. The answer is so obvious but I expect that‘s how the author intended it to be.

I was really drawn in by the main character, a new mother struggling with single parenthood and the loss of her husband. However, the range of emotions she went through were a bit much for me. I hung in there to see what happened. 😢

After going to the movies this past weekend, my fiancé and I were talking about society's fascination with the story of a virus destroying humanity. This story reiterates that theme, just a different take on it.

An unfortunate main character that seems to find herself on the wrong side of situations over and over. Lee finds herself in a twisted game and doesn't know which people are lying and which are honest. If I were her, I'd have been holed up in my closet forever. 😂

I cannot help but feel for Ginny and her forever parents. So many emotions in this story. I'm half way through and don't know where this is going. Will it break my ❤️?

LiteraryinLititz I feel the same way and I'm on page 165. Her forever parents are so patient in the face of all her challenges. I'm really not sure how things will turn out for them... 2y
LiteraryinLititz Wow, I finished it tonight. Great book! Can't wait to hear what you think! 2y
WendyL @LiteraryinLititz So did I! I'm glad it ended the way it did although it was touch and go there for a bit. It's maybe not a good read for anyone considering foster care. 2y

This one started out in a bookstore. The main character was a bookseller with a hidden past. Beyond that, the story evolves past the bookstore. There are some topics that particularly pull at my heart strings. This one was one of them all tied up in a mystery.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who rushed to read the book before starting the Hulu series. The first episode was a little slow for me, other than Atwood's cameo. Now I'm hooked. I like the modern adaptation.

GoldenGirl @WendyL I do too. So far, I'm thinking this is scarier than any paranormal horror book because it's so...true. There are ppl like this and that's what's scary! I'm really liking The Gunslinger so far. I hope the movie is great too! 3y
