Mehso-so

I really enjoyed this until the main character decided to take it all into his own hands. Then it got a little too far fetched for me.

mllemay SAME!! It‘s like “Dude, the police are there to help you! Let them do their job!!” 🙄 that trope is so annoying 1y

The Autobiography of Gucci Mane | Gucci Mane, Neil Martinez-Belkin
Mehso-so

I knew nothing about Gucci Mane going into this. I googled him after I finished and discovered he was the one with the extravagant wedding! All you can do is root for him after finishing.

How to Walk Away | Katherine Center

All of the twists in this could be seen a mile away, but how the book handled them was not as predictable. I really loved reading this. 5 stars!

Gods in Alabama | Joshilyn Jackson
Panpan

I loved The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson so I was excited to go back to one of her earlier books. The overall themes between the two stories were way too similar. I also didn‘t like any of the characters. This was a dud for me.

Not my favorite KH book but I still give it five stars because the woman can write! I thought the build up was way too long and the court moment seemed really unrealistic. But the main event and everything that came after was a “wow” for me.

I really wanted to love this book because THAT COVER and the title and the premise. I enjoyed it but it was just kind of flat. It‘s hard to connect with small pieces of many characters.

Ashley85 Ugh I hate when books do that. I need character development! 2y

An American Marriage | Tayari Jones

Pickpick

The beginning of this book was truly captivating. After the incident, I was so angry with the situation I had to take a break. The book kind of slowed down for me after that, but I enjoyed the complex characters and story.

elyseh This book was so intense I loved it though! 1y

The Wedding Date | Jasmine Guillory
Pickpick

4/5 stars. I know there has to be some sort of “problem” in the story, but the problem was the worst part of this book. I just wanted them to get past that so I could enjoy the sappy love story!

Katehubb Kind of felt the same. 2y

This is an engaging book but it felt like it was trying too hard. The first twist was great but after that it seemed like they were just trying for shock value. (And it‘s 2018, can we finally stop comparing every book to Gone Girl?)

The Life She Was Given | Ellen Marie Wiseman

There‘s just something about old time circus stories that draws me in. I really enjoyed this even though I figured out the twist pretty early on.

The Last Mrs. Parrish | Liv Constantine
Pickpick

This is between a 4 and 5. It made me SO uncomfortable the whole time I was reading it so I give the authors credit for that. And it was a page turner, especially in part two.

Ashley85 Yes part 2 was more intriguing to me. 2y

Columbine | Dave Cullen
Pickpick

I made myself wait a year to read this after Sue Klebold‘s book. This was very hard to read in the first half due to the subject matter. It‘s very heavy on details but paints a clear picture of the killers original plan and gives a lot of perspective on the media‘s coverage of the event. There is a letter included within the book that Sue Klebold wrote to a victims family. It made me tear up. She is a class act.
