Before going in I didn't know much about Jeanette or her work but I really wanted to see what all they hype was about. I enjoyed her narration of this on audio and admire her for her courage in sharing everything that she endured so frankly. I really hope she finds all the happiness 💛

" If you make a girl cry, you must be sorry. If a girl hands you an imaginary phone, you answer it. If a girl reaches for your hand, you take it. In womanhood, all those exchanges become contingent on her ability to pay a price." Part horror, part thriller, part mystery part suspense. So good!

This book gave me SO much anxiety and nightmares! 😬 Several times I found myself wishing I could reach through the page and just slap the crap right out of some of these characters. I was happy when it was over but I'd honestly probably read the next one in the series. Good pick, this one evoked many feelings 😅! @Maggie4483 @LoverOfLearning @rsteve388

Finished this one up for #LitsyLoveWritesNBooks Between a so-so and a pick but I always round up. It had some good witchy elements and was a fast read but I couldn't get into it like I hoped to. A few things didn't make sense to me. Probably a right book at the wrong time sort of thing. Looking forward to hearing what you all think of it.

I had to sneak off to my car on lunch break so I could finish this one up today. Going to go with a soft pick for it. There were some cute parts, just not my cup of tea. It does feel good to cross this one off the Old TBR list, thanks to #trappedonanisland challenge. Book #4 down and I can't wait to see what I "get stuck with" in September. ?

Feeling the #litsylove this month! Thank you all for the sweet cards, wishes and goodies! I had a super day with family. Hit B&N and picked up this copy of Matilda to curl up and get nostalgic with later on. Our dinner destination was also inspired by a #lmpbc book😅 @BookishBelle 's The Art of French Eating left me desperate to try Steak Frites. Sadly there were no steak frites, but we found some other delicious alternatives.

Couldn't wait to pick up book 2 so my youngest daughter and I made it a date. Outlander is mine and the bottom 2 and a couple we ordered are hers. Seeing her spend her whole weeks allowance on books brought me back to my own baby bookworm days so we implemented the Mom match (I pay half) so she could afford more books.

Read the bulk of this #staycationintime book on my actual staycation. Vacation fell through so I made the best of it and did lots of reading by the channel. I SO enjoyed this one. So many rich descriptions of beautiful plants and places ♡ It did take a little longer to get through because I was constantly googling images of all the different orchids. I love the way the author tied so many aspects of Orchid history and current culture. 🌸💕

HeathHof Thank you again for this fab pick! @amyg 8mo
SamAnne Have you watched the movie Adaptation based on the book? Loosely based on the book…. 8mo
HeathHof @SamAnne Yes I have. Before I knew there was a book that it was based on. Definitely time for a rewatch though because it's been several years. 8mo

Today I went and saw The Black Phone with my two oldest. (20 & 17) and it gave us all some scares! After we got home, I fired up the kindle so we could read the actual story from the tagged book. Both were good but for once, the movie actually really enhanced the original story. Def reccomend if you like suspense and startles.👌

BarkingMadRead Ohhhhh I haven‘t read it yet, maybe I‘ll wait to watch the movie after I read the book! 9mo
KathyWheeler I read the story years ago and liked it.I remember seeing the trailer and not being interested in the movie. But for some reason I didn‘t connect it to the Joe Hill story. Now, I may have to see the movie. 9mo
