Book Fair Day | Lynn Plourde

Todays book sale plan: Bring one bag, go late so theres limited time to look, bring son that nags you the minute you walk in that he wants to leave. Success! With this plan i was able to buy a quarter of the books i usually walk out with, be way more selective instead of just buying everything and only spending $37.00!! I got 45 books! 😝

Crazeedi Wow!!!! 1w

Ive been feeling very nostaglic lately and have been looking to collect the books i loved growing up. This series was one of my favorites!

Im not going to look for them all, just some of my faves!

The Lying Game | Ruth Ware
post image
Mehso-so

If Pretty Little Liars and I Know What You Did Last Summer had a baby it would be this book. Im starting to realize though that Ruth Ware books are hit or miss for me. This one was a miss. There was a lot of chapters that were just taking up space. This could have been a short story and told in a 100 pages. The story was good and it kept me guessing with a twist at the end but it was so slow to get going and stayed slow.
