#HelloThursday
1. I like both but do more cardio
2. Outdoors
3. Must have Music!
4. My very favorite is running (currently walking back up to it) but I also love yoga
5. I have a running playlist but it‘s on my phone so not shareable. I‘ve got everything from 70‘s music to the stuff my teenagers listen to.

wanderinglynn Thanks for playing! 🙌🏻 2w

This was not at all what I expected, not scary but it was violent and gory. The author definitely has a way with words and there were some clever descriptions. I appreciated the writing but didn‘t love the story. I‘ll stop there so I don‘t spoil anything for #teamcthulhu. I‘ll be sending this out tomorrow to @MaleficentBookDragon #HGPBC

Vacation starts tomorrow! Does anyone else overpack BOOKS?? I can only bring one of these Alice books. Which one should it be??

Zelma Do you want dark and adult or dark and YA? 😁 Alice doesn‘t have romance per se where Splintered has typical YA romance tropes. (edited) 1mo

Loved this thriller! The timeline jumps around but once I got used to it I really enjoyed it. I liked the sections about when everyone met in Eastern Europe. The twists were great especially the last one which totally surprised me!

The Hiding Place | C. J. Tudor

This was a mix of mystery, thriller and horror. Joe returns to his hometown after receiving an email about his deceased sister and “it” happening again. I had to keep reading to find out what happened to Joe‘s sister, Annie, in this creepy town. There were numerous plot lines and a little Pet Semetary going on here but I still enjoyed the supernatural element. My biggest complaint is that the ending felt rushed. Good final twist though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This psychological thriller was really good. Beautiful artist, Alicia, kills her husband and then doesn‘t speak for 6 years. Therapist, Theo, goes to work at the Groves just so he can help the infamous Alicia. I loved the two different perspectives of Alicia especially her diary entries. I kept getting close to figuring out the twist but didn‘t get there before the reveal. Great twist! Definitely recommend this one.

The beginning of this book was really creepy. I love Jesse‘s warning to the reader about reading the book. The science or lab part of the story was confusing and weird. I had no idea where the story was going. It had a dream like quality to it. Even when I was confused, I had to keep reading to find out what happened to Jesse and his family. There‘s a twist that was a surprise but I‘m not sure I understood the ending. Recommend if you like weird.

I rarely listen to audiobooks because I have trouble paying attention but a Litten recommended this audiobook. I listened to it yesterday during a long drive. It was fantastic! The writing is amazing. The poetry is beautiful. Really everything was perfect. I‘d love to see another book with X and her family. I highly recommend this one especially the audiobook.

tjwill It also just won several awards yesterday, including an Odyssey honor for the audiobook! 4mo
