Eleanor and Park left me crushed. I couldn't even pick up a book for at least a month. Then my place in line for this book came up. I forced myself to listen to it, knowing that it would be a long wait until I could have the chance again. I'm so very glad that I did. This is honestly the best book I've ever read. Riley Sager's ability to twist the plot into something unrecognizable at the end is a true talent. 10/10. Everyone should read this.

WHY DIDN'T ANYONE WARN ME WHEN I POSTED THE EXCERPT YESTERDAY? I'm ugly crying over here. This was the sweetest, most heart wrenching book I've ever read.

So, so funny! This book should definitely be experienced as the audio version read by Tiffany Haddish. I laughed through the whole thing. 😂 #bookspinbingo is going really, really well this month. @TheAromaofBooks

#bookspinbingo
In this installment, we witnessed the death of two sisters, one great and another absolutely crazy. To add further insult to injury, Catelyn didn't even remain dead. She doesn't even get to rest with her husband. 😭 But THANKFULLY Joffrey, the mad and mad king, is dead. Thank the gods! Both the Old and the New.

Also, Sansa's story line continues to break my heart. She is beauty, she is grace, and she is also very, very smart.

Brilliant. A wonderful adventure story about a girl who hates her parents, a mother who loves her dearly, and a father who just wants to kill God.

Finished my #bookspin 😁 @TheAromaofBooks this one has been on my to be read list for a while. Glad the random number generator gave me this one this month. It was nice. A pleasant few hours spent contemplating what's important to you before you die. A nice reminder to slow down and enjoy your time.

Big Summer: A Novel | Jennifer Weiner

Mehso-so

I loved the beginning, with the relationships between friends and lovers and families. I didn't like the second half. The twist was shocking and totally unexpected, but then as they started to figure out who did it, the book just seemed like a landslide. Conclusions were drawn that, honestly, didn't make sense with the information given. Jennifer Weiner knew how she wanted the book to end and had trouble conveying it in an organized way.

🎧 Big Summer - 50% done. The curve right in the middle of the book was jarring. I thought this would be a nice book about friendship...

"But sometimes when you are in a moment, it‘s so close to your face, reality, it‘s pressed up so close to you, that you just flinch, you react, and then your fate is decided, and all you have done was what you couldn‘t help doing, and yet your fate is decided. You‘ve done something that can‘t be taken back." This book was incredibly sad, with characters so developed I felt like I knew them. I don't have any words to describe how I'm feeling.

This dog's face sums up my current feelings about this book. I love love love Bunny and Michael's friendship and interactions but spaced through it are Michael's obscene, vivid sex descriptions. I'm not opposed to LGBTQ+ sex. I'm opposed to how jarring it feels while listening. I've read and watched Game of Thrones and didn't feel so unsettled.

😍😍 first book of 2021! This year's goal is 16 books and I'm off to a good start. Absolutely loved this. I love the Hunger Games books and I have so so many questions about Snow's life between the ending of this and the beginning of the original trilogy.

UGHHHH. I NEED JOSIE SILVER TO WRITE MORE BOOKS RIGHT NOW. When I read this one, and One Day in December, I was so mystified by the characters. Like these are real people, and these books are biographies. I feel whole when I read this, and I feel a little empty now that it's done. ❤😭

Midnight Sun | Stephenie Meyer

This book was SO GOOD. My second favorite of the series. Edward is much more relatable than Bella, which is kind of the point right? He was a normal human before becoming a vampire, and he was a normal human after. I think the contrast between their minds really brings home the point that Bella was born to be something ~other~.

My heart breaks for Snow. Can't you just admit you're in love with a girl you're about to send to slaughter? If she dies in a few days does your pride matter?

Hey everyone. I've been MIA for a while. I'm working the 6 AM shift in the lab and I'm starting my PhD research, so life has been terribly hectic. Going to pick back up with reading with the tagged book that I got for my birthday ❤ 2 chapters in and I'm mesmerized by this world again and a relatable President Snow.

Hi friends. I am in need of more fluff books. I haven't really read romance books before but in the past year I read the tagged book, Serious Moonlight, and the Music Shop. I need more right now 😭 any recommendations like these? Or if you have read these, are there more romance books that you have really enjoyed?

This one was okay. I enjoyed the older feel to the style of writing. Not like it was set in an older time, but as if the author wrote it a long time ago. The plot was a little hard to follow, but I somehow want more of it. There's more to this story.
Also, this counts for the Leo prompt of #readyoursign 8. Read a book with your spirit color (gold) the title or on the cover.

This was... interesting...ha. It was nice. I like books that follow characters through their lives and the characters felt real. I just didn't like them much. Jules should have been happy with the good man that she married. Someone who time and time again came back to her. Her only redeeming quality is that she did not run off with Ethan in the end.
⭐⭐

8little_paws Jules is a terribly self centered person and it was hard for me to spend this many pages with her LOL

erinachu @8little_paws yes. She had a fine life. She was only dissatisfied with it because she was surrounded by people with more money than she had. So many people would kill to have a loving family and a good job 2y

I am HEARTHBROKEN. This is the best book I have read in so long. I read the reviews that said that there was too much covered in this book or that it was too long, but those are not my opinions at all. These were real lives of two sisters. Some fucked up lives, some real struggles, but authentic, real lives. I'm crying. I needed this book to be longer. I want more.

Wow. Friendly neighborhood demisexual here. I remember the first time I was attracted to my best friend (a girl). I remember feeling "unnatural". Shaming your daughter for it is not the way to handle this. I'm glad I found out my sexuality in the 2010s and not in the 1950s....
