Run, Rose, Run: A Novel | James Patterson, Dolly Parton
post image

It says this is a thriller. I definitely wouldnt call this a thriller.
It built up for 400 pages for the ending to be a few pages and a total let down. The build up was a lot and it really kept you in the dark. Youre not even able to guess whats happening because theres no explanation and no names to characters so youre expecting this big bombshell at the end and it just fell flat. Felt almost rushed. It got me out of my reading slump though!

jlhammar True Biz (her previous book Girl at War was so good), Lessons in Chemistry and Bomb Shelter. I would have added Bittersweet, but already have it on hold at the library. 2mo
Megabooks I put the thriller (really iffy) on hold at the library and requested they buy bomb shelter. 🤞🏻 I didn‘t feel strongly enough to purchase those. 2mo

Reckless Girls: A Novel | Rachel Hawkins

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for this one! The book has alternating chapters of Before and Now so you really get a good look into the backstory as the present events play out. It really makes you think how well do you really know someone? It explores friendship and survival and the fact that everyone has a secret, but how does all that shift when cut off from civilization? How far are you willing to go for revenge and what you feel is owed to you?

My library has this listed as a mystery. The mystery part was just meh. The main character Molly is awkward and they talk a lot about her being different but they never put a name to it. I can appreciate Molly‘s journey throughout the book but i did not appreciate the ending at all! Maybe i missed the point with the ending but i was dissapointed! I still liked the story though!

Finally making a book journal/log!

I bought this journal last year! 🙈

My handwriting is so bad that i feel like i ruin everything i write on. I also struggle with the thoughts to paper aspect so starting to design this journal was a nightmare. BUT…once i got going i felt much better! My handwriting is still shit though.

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I definitely feel you on the handwriting bit. I inherited my dad‘s chicken scratch instead of my mom‘s calligraphy-like writing. 😅 3mo
GondorGirl My handwriting isn't great either, but I've found I really enjoy keeping a book journal. I thought all the writing would improve my penmanship... nope! 😂 3mo

Stayed up past my bedtime to finish this one! I never realized how fascinating her life was and is! If you want gossip on famous people then you got it with this book! I was nervous it would be a tell all about other people but it definitely wasnt! I only knew Elvira the character and nothing about Cassandra the person so it was interesting to read how Elvira came to be and how the two coexisted in and out of Hollywood. I enjoyed this one!

Sapphire I remember Elvira! Was it KTTV LA? Sunday afternoon movies! I was a kid, I think late Friday nights was the first run. 4mo
