Was this book weird and a bit unnerving? Yes Am I going to continue reading the rest of the series? Absolutely

Oh gosh! I was NOT prepared for the emotional roller coaster this book took me on! In short, it was simply amazing! I really loved and felt for the characters, which made it even harder to read at times! Oh, make sure to read the TW! I don't think I would be able to recommend this book enough. It left me speechless, breathless, scared, worried, happy, angry, and every other emotion under the sun. One of my top 5-star picks for the year! #5star

Nute Seems like an important story to read. Stacking! (edited) 6mo
alexus_sb @Nute In my option it really is! But I think it would be different for everyone. If you have the time I would recommend! 6mo

“Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true,
that even as we grieved, we grew,
that even as we hurt, we hoped,
that even as we tired, we tried,
that we'll forever be tied together, victorious.
Not because we will never again know defeat,
but because we will never again sow division.”

Amanda Gorman is so deserving of the praise that she's received. Each time I hear this poem, my heart stops a bit — it‘s breathtakingly beautiful.

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides
post image
Pickpick

I know I'm pretty late to the game with this book, but it's pretty rare that I find a book that I absolutely love, absorb and wish that I could give it more than 5 stars. The Silent Patient was definitely one of those books for me! I was hooked from pretty much the beginning until the very end. The characters were lovable, annoying and everything in between. It had everything: drama, intrigue and even a plot twist or two! #silentpatient #thriller

LoverOfLearning I enjoyed it as well. I liked the plot twists! 1y

I am Haunted: Living Life Through the Dead | Zak Bagans, Kelly Crigger
post image
Panpan

I'm not one really to truly truly dislike a book, but this was not my cup of tea. It seemed like Bagans was more focused on proclaiming how much more authentic he and his show were, while bashing others, that there was no substance to the book. It was overall disappointing, I hate to say. #ghostadventures

Ghost World S/C | Daniel Clowes

The parts that I could understand, were fine, at best. I don't know — I just found this graphic novel rushed, confusing and all over the place. I feel like I might have missed something, since this this graphic novel is pretty popular and comes highly recommended by friends and coworkers. It just didn't hit home, nor was it engaging. If someone has some insight on something I might hvae missed, let me know! Lol #graphicnovel #ghostworld

LibrarianRyan I so agree. 1y

Mehso-so

Honestly, I was kind of disappointed with this book. It was something that has been on my radar (and my TBR) list for quite a while, so when I finally got my hands on a copy, I was very excited to read it! Unfortunately, in my opinion, the book was just too repetitive. In terms of originality and content, this one just didn't hit home for me. On the plus side, it was a super quick read! 👍

2am Thoughts | Makenzie Campbell

Pickpick

I absolutely loved this collection of poetry! Though this is only the second published piece by Makenzie Campbell, it's clear that she's on the right path. A lot of the poems are really ageless and speak of finding and maintaining self-love and happiness (mostly after a breakup) and those thoughts of “what if“ that keeps us up during the night. It was a nice quick read, but insightful. I would recommend it to pretty much anyone! #poetry #love
