Life has been stupid, stressful and it‘s thrown me into a reading slump. I‘m 170 pages in and if my life stress ruins the experience of this book for me I may start becoming as angry as Edward is at the people who are the source if my stress 😡

My amazing husband is taking my kids camping this weekend and leaving me home alone for a much needed mental health break! In between laundry, cleaning and organizing projects, I‘ll be participating in my first #mbcreadathon !! Here‘s my stack of catch up books. I‘ll finish the top and likely start on Midnight Sun for the weekend. #mbcgiveaway1

Hestapleton I love that! So sweet of your hubby to help you carve out some peace. Hope your time is productive and restorative! 2y

Good read during the pandemic. However, the middle drug on kinda like this quarantine. Finally on the last 200 pages, hoping to finish tonight. Glad I hadn‘t read it in the past though so I could right now! Stay safe everyone!

Watched a series on Hulu about GSK, as I had no idea who that was and I‘m a crime junkie. Googled for a book and realized I‘d already bought it! That is the first crime tv show that ever actually scared me. I can‘t imagine living in this fear!

DakotaWilde Good luck, I just finished this and the first half scared me so bad!!! It's really good though! 4y

Anyone else hate the book sleeves?

Marilyncjackson Yes I wish hard covers were like library editions. No dust jackets but still beautiful art. 4y
amberdfoy I ordered a book recently that was hardback and had a dust cover but ALSO when you took off the dust cover the actual book had beautiful covers too! I was sooo excited. I hope they continue to do that...might have been amazon publishing 4y

Genesis Girl | Jennifer Bardsley

Meh. Not my favorite genre. Excellent idea and general story. Feel like the beginning was extremely rushed and more time could have been spent on explaining the program and information on the “schooling”. Also feel the struggle the main character experienced trying to figure things out could have been executed better. Whole story was rushed in general and I didn‘t like how it ended. I enjoyed reading it, just could have been more substance.

The First Book of Calamity Leek | Paula Lichtarowicz
post image

Just finished the tagged book. It was eh. Interesting, confusing, and the way it ended, it sounded like I might enjoy the NEXT book better, if there is going to be one. All the books in the middle of the shelves in the picture are ones I haven‘t read. I‘m a mood reader and I have NO IDEA what to read next!!! I‘m not feeling anything, except maybe a short one? Any suggestions? Something not too heavy.

Ddzmini 😍😍😍📖📚 4y
Naj I'd suggest the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire. They're fun, whimsical little novellas. And your shelves are to die for 😍 4y
amberdfoy Thanks!!! They‘ve been a long time coming! I had to get rid of allll my books I kept in my old basement because of mold and I had to move without them. Took advantage of that wall in a formal in a formal dining room we‘ll never use. I‘ve dreamed of a library for a long time. Building my book collection back up! 4y

Wanted to read something “different” and it appears this is it. The first chapter is very....intriguing. Trying to figure out what the heck is going on!

Trying to get one Stephen King in a month. Not sure I can pull it off all year though. What are his best books?

RvnclawWhovian I feel like a broken record lol but if you haven‘t read 11/22/63, you must ASAP. It‘s a bit of a chunker but I ended up wishing it would never end 4y
TheBookgeekFrau I agree with @RvnclawWhovian 11/22/63 was really good. I also loved Tommyknockers, The Outsider, The Dark Tower series, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams to name a few 4y
amberdfoy Ok thanks! I‘ve read The Outsider and the Bill Hodges trilogy. I recently got The Shining just because I want to read the one about the son. I haven‘t read Stephen King in 10+ years so I‘ve only read the really popular, not so long ones when I was a teenager. 4y

Believe this is a re-read for me. My mom only collected Stephen King when I was young and my Gma read a lot of Danielle Steele. So, those were the two authors I read the most as a teen. I can‘t really remember if I read this back then but it triggered my interest so I picked it up. Can‘t ever go wrong with Stephen King, that‘s for sure!

Starting this interesting story. The murder of a young woman in 1896 and the trial of the convicted killers. This lady was from my tiny little rural town, not sure if that‘s where her murder took place though. But I‘ve never even heard about it before. A friend told me about it. So excited!

Victoriahoperose Love your Siamese cat ❤️❤️❤️ 4y
amberdfoy Thank you! That‘s Meredith and God blessed our entire family when she was GIVEN to me by a friend who couldn‘t keep her. 4y
Unabashedly_Reading Your cat looks exactly like my cat Mocha does 💛 Also, seeing as you're excited to read this, have you read In Cold Blood by Truman Capote? It's a true and tragic story about a whole family's murder. It's really depressing but written so amazing. 4y
amberdfoy I haven‘t but I will add it to my list. There was another book written about a murder in a town about 30 minutes away that I want to read as well 4y

Kept me up late for two nights. Good stuff. Twists I didn‘t see coming, reasonably believable, which is tricky in psychological thrillers. I‘ll likely reread (don‘t do often) so I can catch all the tiny hints.
