Full review on Goodreads - 3.5/5 stars

This was a fun book full of action and intrigue! Loved Aeduan, the Bloodwitch so of course now I'm so exited to read book three!

Have you read any of the books in this series?

#truthwitch #thewitchlands

SquiBella This has been on my radar for a while. I just found it on sale at Thriftbooks, so I might have to scoop it up. I‘ve just been loving that cover! ☺️ 8mo
laundry_piles @SquiBella definitely grab it, it was really fun to read despite a couple things I didn't like about it. I have started book two and that one I've heard is even better than the first! 8mo

I am so out of touch with the Litsy crew! It's been forever since I've logged on! But I'm still over here reading my heart out!

2019 is all about mood reading, reading what I own and library hauls. The only challenge I joined was the Goodreads challenge with a goal to read 75 books.

How's everyone been? What are you reading?

C.Perone Welcome back! 9mo

The Lies We Told | Camilla Way
post image
Pickpick

⭐⭐⭐/5

I just finished up the new novel by Camilla Way which I received from @BerkleyPub via a Goodreads giveaway. (Out 10/9/18)

The plot itself was not unique or new but I rather enjoyed the fast paced thrill of it all. If you like psychological thrillers then I would say that this is definitely worth picking up!

Woo I finished my reading challenge for the year! I guess I should've gone for a higher goal. So many great books read and still so many left to read!

This is honestly the only challenge I'll finish. I've sort of gone way off track with the other challenges I was participating in which isn't surprising #moodreader #whoops #2018readingchallenge #goodreads

Mehso-so

⭐⭐⭐

There was something strangely addicting about this. The drama that unfolded between some of the characters was really fun to read but the rest, ehhhh. The descriptions of haute couture and all the designer name dropping seemed to go on forever, and the amount of money these women dropped on dresses and earrings they'd never wear... Yikes!

It's like The Housewives but with a budget that would make even their eyeballs pop!

#bookhaul from the Book outlet scratch and dent sale! Im so excited about these books! Everything is in great condition and now begins the difficult decision on what to read first!? I've actually read Hidden Bodies but wanted a copy of my own.

Has anyone read any of these?

vkois88 I'm so disappointed... my button finger wasn't fast enough and everything in my cart sold out before I could purchase it 😭 I was especially disappointed about the children's books I had put in there for my daighter. I REALLY wanted the indestructible Jingle Bells book for her. That was her favorite song last year, and I love the indestructible books anyway. She's usually pretty good with books unless she gets too excited, but still. 1y
laundry_piles @vkois88 oh wow that's such a bummer! ☹️ Hopefully you can find them again! They have a sale on children's books happening now... An extra 30% off I think it was. 1y
vkois88 I saw that! I get paid Thursday 😊 1y
RadicalReader @laundry_piles you‘ll love cozying up with The Twin by C.J. Omolou and Hidden Bodies by Karen Kepnes. I couldn‘t put down the first novel and felt strongly the same about the second. You‘ll also immensely enjoy the tv series You that‘s airing now on tv 13mo

I didn't LOVE this book. It was just kind of 'meh' for me and I hate to say that because I love Caroline Kepnes!

Full review on my blog and on Goodreads but this was to 'love story' focused for my taste!

Have you guys read this? What did you think?

laundry_piles Hopefully I did this post right but feel free to jump in! I personally loved this book more than the first one. It definitely felt more reminiscent of the original Fear Street books. 1y
BookwormAHN I thought this one was nuts, fun but nuts 😸 1y
Craftylikefox @laundry_piles @BookwormAHN I really enjoyed this one more than the first as well. Less cringe worthy slang. More monsters which makes it nuts! 😂This one was a bit closer to a goosebumps but with teenagers. So much fun! 1y

laundry_piles @Craftylikefox @BookwormAHN yeah definitely got the Goosebumps vibe too! Some of the characters really annoyed me though. Who was your favorite? Least favorite? 1y
BookwormAHN @laundry_piles @Craftylikefox definitely a Goosebumps vibe. My least favorite character was the psychiatrist. I knew she was up to something. I'm not sure who my favorite was. 1y
Craftylikefox That‘s a tough one! I like this main character better than the last story‘s. my least favorite... maybe Issac, he kept complaining about his band and I kept thinking well then practice more or do something about. 1y
laundry_piles @Craftylikefox I hated Isaac! He was very obnoxious character! 1y
laundry_piles @BookwormAHN the psychiatrist, yes! 1y
Craftylikefox @bookwormahn I thought the psychiatrist was terrible!! 1y
laundry_piles Did anyone else find it slightly annoying that Lisa was so naive about Nate and Saralynn? 1y
TheReadingMermaid @laundry_piles YES!!!!! It's like "Hello???" (Smacks her over the head with the book) 1y
TheReadingMermaid I personally thought the ending was a little more than cheesy but that's RL Stine for you lol 1y
laundry_piles @TheReadingMermaid so much cheese but that's part of the novelty 🤣 after all these years of writing, I'm convinced Stine does that on purpose now. 1y
TheReadingMermaid @laundry_piles Yes, it's now like his calling card or his trademark 1y
ads0123 I enjoyed this one a lot more than the first one! I was super suspicious of the psychiatrist from the beginning, too. Also, I don‘t think you could pay me enough money to go back to a house after 2 murders were committed basically on their front lawn. Just say no Lisa!!!! 1y
laundry_piles @ads0123 um right!?! Actually I'm not sure I would've even gone back after what happened the first night there!! 🤣 1y

American War | Omar El Akkad

Nope. This would've been a DNF had it not been for the fact that I was reading this with friends. This is supposed to be a dystopian novel of sorts, taking place in 2095 amid the next Civil War, only it felt like a re-write of the civil war in 1865 just add in some drones flying over head occasionally. And the character development was lacking and SO MANY plot gaps...ugh. I'm glad that's over.

Cinfhen Yea; this book was a big Nope for me too 1y
laundry_piles @Cinfhen it was so disappointing! The premise had so much potential but just poorly executed. Bummer 1y
Cinfhen I agree wholeheartedly @Reviewsbylola hated it too!!! She was really pissed by the promise of something startling and then the long slow fizzle 1y

Full review on my blog and on Goodreads.

This was so interesting and not your typical 'serial-killer thriller'. I enjoyed the uniqueness of the plot, even though it was more of a slow-burn. It cleaned up nicely and I felt closure after the mental game of ping pong. Worth a read, especially if you liked her book Black-Eyed Susan's.

Macbeth | Jo Nesbo

⭐⭐⭐

A modern retelling of Shakespeare's Macbeth. It was a very slow build and not overly original. Macbeth is head of SWAT. Duncan, the police chief commissioner, is his boss and Lady runs the Casino and convinces Macbeth to "kill the king". Not love for me because it was painfully SLOW.

I can't believe I waited until now to read this! Fast paced and SO well written, I devoured this book. Patrick has Asperger's and he's profoundly fascinated by death. Samuel Galen has been in a serious car accident and ends up in the neurological ward at the hospital unable to communicate. The two meet in the most unconventional way and so begins a wild thriller you won't be able to put down! #rubbernecker #belindabauer

Craftylikefox This brought me back to the classic Stine writing as well. There were some parts I cringed at. Usually when they used slang. The slang seemed more early 90s but it was supposed to be current day. This would had me on edge when I was younger. I enjoy taking that ride back. (edited) 1y
laundry_piles @Craftylikefox completely agree about the slang. I think I questioned once or twice when it was supposed to be taking place. 1y
laundry_piles I'm glad so many people still enjoyed it! 1y
JoScho Totally fun nostalgic read but I agree with @Craftylikefox about the slang and the dialogue in general was pretty rough but it was a fun read and I know ten year old me would have been on pins and needles while reading it. 1y

Current book bloggers, I need your help! I'm thinking of writing again on my book blog laundrypiles.wordpress.com so I have some questions: how often do you post content? Do you only post reviews? How do you use it to reach out to authors/publishers for ARC's?

Any tips welcome! #bookblog #wordpresshelp #questions

Samantha.1020 I preschedule my posts too because otherwise I can always find the time. I try to post at least twice a week. I mostly do reviews but also a weekly wrap up post when I have the time. Have fun and do whatever works for you!! 1y
MinDea I don't know if this is helpful, but I have a food blog...so not quite the same as a book blog but similar!. I am not active lately but when I was I would write all my posts on the weekends and try to post 2 or 3 times a week and preschedule them to post each week. I would spend a little bit of time each weekend. Probably a couple hours a weekend. Good luck getting yours back up and running! 1y

⭐⭐⭐

I really enjoyed the narration of this, it was a great car ride listen. I'm probably the last person in the world to jump into this book and I found it to be just "ok". Extremely unlikable characters so if that's your thing, you're golden. I don't really get the hype or the Gone Girl comparisons but I will say that it's fast paced and dark.

Bookishthoughts @laundry_piles Good to know! I always get distracted when a book is crawling along🙊 1y
laundry_piles @LazyDays I'm the same way! A friend of mine is reading it to and he absolutely loves it! I've never read Nesbo so if you're a fan like he is, you might like right off the bat. 1y
Bookishthoughts @laundry_piles I havent read any thing by him. I keep trying ,but my mind wonders😄😄 I am definitely going to make time for this one, it sounds so interesting😊 1y

When your family just GETS you. ?❤️?? A text from my brother this morning, he's 16 years younger than me so the "old, creeky" thing makes it even better ?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I get it @JoeStalksBeck , I totally get it.

The way that Santino Fontana read this, sort of made me wish Joe was my stalker, in a creepy but really hot kind of way. I could listen to him read me stories all night...but I digress.

This book is crazy, dirty, and terrifying. Read through the POV of Joe who becomes obsessed with Beck and wants nothing more than for Beck to just LOVE him.

JoScho I have been trying to get through some library holds since I bought the Fear Street it has been on the back burner. I need to pick it back up. You enjoyed it? 1y
laundry_piles @JoScho I really did! Brought me back to my youth that's for sure. It was a fun, quick read! 1y

I decided to take a mental health day today - no work, no kids, no husband and no housework (well except the laundry I folded while watching Santa Clarita Diet this morning). It's completely blissful.

About to finish the first book of the #fearstreetrelaunch and then I have a bunch of NetGalley reads to knock out. #thisisthelife

TricksyTails I‘m so behind in buddy reads because of this stupid reading slump. I‘m going to try to find a copy at the library and give it my best. Which means I‘ll likely fail. 😅 1y

⭐⭐

I love the 'idea' of this book but unfortunately it just fell flat for me. Quick break down: Hannah doesn't speak. Hannah hates mommy. Hannah loves daddy. Hannah wants mommy dead. Hannah is also seven.

Events were nonsensical and it felt like the author was trying to hard just to shock you. It was a bit disappointing. Full review on Goodreads

Not book related but relaxing and watching a little Santa Clarita Diet - this show is actually pretty good! 🥃 Anyone watch?

The last two weeks have sucked so it's nice to sit and relax and do absolutely nothing. Fortunately things are feeling a little less stressful so I'm getting back to regular programming; which really means more reading and scrolling Litsy. Thank God for the weekend!

rather_be_reading yes it surprisingly is ok 1y
jfalkens What is it about? 1y
Kaylamburson I loved the first season! So funny! I haven‘t started Season 2 yet, but that‘s because I know I‘ll binge and I‘ll take a hiatus from books lol. 1y

FantasyChick We watched the whole first season in a day. It was weirdly awesome and addictive 😊 1y
KrystleTheBookSlayer Yes! So good! 1y
JoScho Stephanie I am sorry the last two week have sucked 😔 I hope things get better soon. I did watch season 1 but haven‘t watched season 2. Drew Barrymore is adorable. 1y
laundry_piles @jfalkens Drew Barrymore done herself one of the undead so it's about her and her husband and their daughter trying to love a normal life with her as a "zombie". It's surprisingly good, and funny! 1y
laundry_piles @JoScho thanks girl! It's on the up :) I love Drew Barrymore! 1y
jfalkens @laundry_piles oooo I might have to check it out 1y
Skygoddess1 I love this show! I have to force myself by to stay up all night watching it. 1y
laundry_piles @Skygoddess1 I binged it! And now I'm totally sad it's over 1y
