The Summer Getaway was wild with drama. I have come to like Mallery‘s womens fiction books, but this one had me saying wtf quite a bit. So much immaturity, the main character had issues (expected), the daughter had problems (which took an unexpected wild turn at the very end). The ex husband is a jackass, the bff is too whiny, etc. With that said it was well written and easy to read due to the high level of drama.

Under the Whispering Door is wonderful. It didn‘t give me the same happy vibes as The House in the Cerulean Sea, but it was beautifully written and brought out lots of feels.

#JoysOfJune Readathon was a success. I had a wonderful reading week. I DNF‘d one book, but completed several. I‘m currently reading Nora Goes Off Script (loving it so far) and decided to put off The Change because I don‘t plan on bringing any physical books on my vacation.

Cute but also kind of meh. The H annoyed me on a few levels, and it was a lot for a novella imo.

Wicked Beauty | Katee Robert

This was a surprise throuple book, which isn‘t normally my thing. However, the plot of Wicked Beauty kept me all in. Helen is fighting for the position of Ares, and so are a lot of other people. Helen is so strong and determined and I loved every minute of her being a badass. The competitions were awesome too.

I was enthralled. Everything that happened is just messed up. So many people (men, ok) blinded by Elizabeth.

Eggs Wasn‘t that amazing?!? And well written 2w
Texreader This was a fantastic book and I‘m so glad with how the criminal case against her went. 2w
DisneyFan I loved this book! There were several points where I had to stop and remind myself that this is NOn-fiction. It really happened. The trial was close to where I lived . I was so tempted to drive over and see if I could watch. 2w

A completely random pick at a bookstore turned out to be a fabulous pick. I was actually drawn to the second book first (A Blizzard of Polar Bears - how can you not love the title?) and glad I picked them both up.

I‘m late, but I‘m joining the #JoyousJune Readathon. This is my best shot at reading before my big trip to Buffalo & Wisconsin so I‘d like to soak in as many books as I can before the road trip.

I previous finished Woman World, The Friendship Pact and The Merciless ones.

Currently reading: The Best Bad Things, Bad Blood and a Solitude of Wolverines.

Everything else is on tap!

Bookwormjillk Is that all one trip? 2w
kimmypete1 @Bookwormjillk yep! I‘m driving from VA to Buffalo for a wedding, from Buffalo to WI to see family and then back home to VA. 2w

I did enjoy The Merciless Ones, but as with a lot of second books in a trilogy this one was very slow to start. The ending was good and fast tempo.

I did get lost a bit, but that‘s a me not being great at fantasy thing, nothing against the book. Just a lot to keep track of and things changing quickly.

Thanks for the tag @Nessavamusic

1. To me an author has something published, doesn‘t have to be traditional or anything, just something out there in the void.

2. Nope, and zero desire to be one. I appreciate and respect everyone who puts pen to paper but it just isn‘t for me.

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 2w

I really enjoyed The Friendship Pact. It features Tae and Riggs, and also has pov from Tae‘s mom April, which really added to the story.

Some of it was funny, but it was also disjointed and hard to follow at times.

What I liked: the two girls not having names, being anonymous, the ending.

What I struggled with: it‘s told in verse (sorry 🤷🏻‍♀️), and at times I felt like it switched narrators, but that could just be me.

While the murders are upsetting, what is worse is the fact almost no one cared about these murders because they were gay men in the 90‘s. If they had been white women this case would have been solved long before.

Just as fun and enjoyable as You Had Me at Hola. Michelle and Gabe were long ago friends who are giving it a second chance to mainly work things through. This aspect of their history was very well done and really made me feel the connection. There is also some family stuff which brought in some feels. I adore the primas and can‘t wait to see who‘s next.

I'm so happy that May is over and we've moved on to June! Summer has officially started and I'm hoping to get a large amount of audiobooks in as I do things around the house and go on my big (and expensive lol) road trip!

I'm also going to a cabin in the mountains next weekend with some friends. So excited to take the time to relax and decompress.

This book is not bringing me joy.

Much more serious than I‘m looking for at the moment.

kimmypete1 @LiteraryinLawrence Yes! And the blurb said something about outrageous challenges so I thought it would be funny. It‘s not. (edited) 1mo

This is my #LMPBC read for May and I am very much behind. Sorry @persephone1408 and @Meshell1313

May is a wild month for me, but now that we‘re wrapping up the end of the school year things are settling down and I‘ll be able to get back into reading!

Highly recommend if you have any interest in learning about Scientology from the inside. It‘s wild and horrifying, and even though they would disagree it‘s most definitely a cult.
