The End of Her | Shari Lapena
post image
Pickpick

LOVED THIS!! I wish it never ended. Stephanie is a smart, smart cookie. And I loved her story. Newly married with twins, it's everything she's always wanted. But is it?

Surprise... Shari Lapena delivers a story of lies, deceit, blackmail, possible murder... I really don't want to spoil it for you. Just go and get this book! You're gonna be glad you did

What a refreshing read. I really needed something different, and this book was it.

Poor Savannah and Thomas have experienced their share of loss in their lives. Never knowing their father. Losing their mother. Its safe to say there would be questions. As curious teenagers, they come up with the idea of locating their father, and documenting their journey through a podcast. Secrets. Deception. This book covers it all.

Why is it always the girls fault? I'll never understand this. However this book captured so much more than that.

I just finished the audio for this and loved it. As the chapters alternate through the characters and a podcast. This develops the story perfectly.

While the story itself is heartbreaking, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The narrative was on point. I will recommend this to everyone!

Thank you #netgalley and #macmillanaudio for the arc

This Is How I Lied: A Novel | Heather Gudenkauf
Pickpick

I just finished this audio and loved it! The suspense throughout the book as the story unfolds. Telling the story from multiple perspectives leading up to who killed Eve! So many suspects. A ton of theories. What a story!

This is my first Heather Gudenkauf book and I'd definitely go back for more!

"Maybe a mother is always her sons girl" Oh man, do I really hope so! I just finished this and I have all the feels ? As a mom of two boys, I know the sacrifices

What a Book!

Throwback to last Summer. 2019. What were we talking about then?! Well, Billy Ray made the charts again with his feature in Old Town Road. Jeffery Epstein was found dead in his prison cell. We were not forbidden to cross the border to travel. Ahhhh... to simpler times

Took a couple days off to recharge and finally finished The Safe Place by Anna Downes. Have you read it?

Poor Emily. Nothing seems to go right for her. Loses her job. Can't make rent. Almost gets hit by a bus... Lucky for her there's a man with a master plan. A man who wants to fly her to France to keep his wife company, and pay her to do so. A dream come true. But is it?!

What a ride this was. I truly didn't know what I was in for until the last page. We take the journey with Oliva as she's about to mark the twenty year anniversary of a tragic accident that happened to her as a small child. Having done everything to escape her past, Olivia finds herself facing it all over again.

Megan, you never disappoint! ☆☆☆☆☆

Thank you #netgalley and #simonandschuster for a copy of this arc

Life moves in only one direction. Every decision that you ever make will be written in stone, permanent, never to be undone. They are all entirely irrevocable.

I just finished Seven Lies by Elizabeth Kay. What a story. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I'm still trying to process that ending though. So many questions.

A solid 3 ⭐⭐⭐ for me

Let me be the first to tell you that I loved this book. What a different read. Not normally my genre. But a great story. A fun take on the idea of aging. Facing milestones at all different ages. Could you imagine living your life out of order?! Doing things backwards. What a fun book

I'm still trying to process this one... Alice travels to visit an old friend after some personal struggles at home. But when she gets there, Joanna is missing. This was a weekend she was going to meet Mark. Joanna and Mark are planning to get married. But where's Joanna?

Somethings off. Alice's not sure what. She decides to stay to help find her friend. Was this the right thing to do? I guess you'll have to read to find out

Thanks #netgalley

Wow. Wow. Wow. Mind blown! The countdown is on for the release of What Lies Between us and I say run, don't walk to get your copy.

Relationships between mothers and daughters can be difficult. Not everyone is sunshine and roses. Take Maggie and Nina for example. As you read through this book, the way the story is told you learn about Nina's upbringing and her struggles....

lil_ms_spitfire .... You read about how Maggie did her best to overcome her daughters teen years. But what a mind **** this was. I just LOVED it. I can't say much more than this without spoiling the plot. 2y

This was my first Peter Swanson book and I really liked it. The premise of Mal, the owner of a bookstore making a list of the perfect murders, then years later people start dying in a similar fashion. This had me intrigued. How does Mal play into these murders? You must read to find out.

There are a lot of great reviews on this one. But I'd say it was 3 stars for me. I do look forward to more books by this author.

The Apartment | K. L. Slater
post image
Mehso-so

Adder House. A gorgeous apartment in an upscale part of town. Rent is based on what you can afford. Moving fees are covered. It sounds exchange good to be true. But is it? After just a few days you begin to feel like things are off. But are they?

Honestly, this book felt like a horror movie where I am screaming at the TV "Don't go in there!" But she goes anyway.

This book was well written. Had some surprises in it I wasn't expecting. Not a fan

Holy Smokes! Secrets. Lies. Deception. Betrayal. This just about covers it all. Clare and Dan needed this family vacation. Dan and his wandering eye have put a strain on their relationship. Can a family trip to Italy fix it? Dan's little brother and new wife come to put that to the test. So many questions you just can't stop reading. ... cont...

lil_ms_spitfire I was hooked the moment wee met Ella, because I instantly hated her. But were my feelings valid? Was Ella the poison? This is a must read! Make sure you've got time to do it too, as I read it in one sitting!
Thank you @netgalley for the ARC in exchange for my honest review. I give this one ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Wow! I kept putting this one off and i don't know why. But I am kicking myself for it. I just finished this book in two sittings. I am a true Hallmark movie fan and THIS was amazing. I couldn't help but root for Stevie and the success of Peggy's Tea Shop. The relationship twists were great. The characters were well written. It was a fun light read and I loved it!

Finally finished my ARC of Trace of Evil by Alice Blanchard. I really enjoyed this one. Murder. Witchcraft. A new detective must determine who killed her sister's bestfriend. With many twists and turns, you think you know... but do you? I enjoyed the characters and the writing style of this book. I hope to read more of this series ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I absolutely loved this! I finished this in one sitting, just so I could watch the movie. Libby loses her husband in an unfortunate accident. In order to find a new normal she chooses to uproot her kids and make a big change. As the pieces of this story unfold, you fall more in love with the characters. Her daughter Abby had me laughing out loud several times. I am just in awe of this book. Katherine Center, you are my new favorite author 😍

What a cute story about Lydia's journey through the unexpected loss. For many this heartache is unimaginable. Unfortunately for me, I can relate to this story as I have experienced this same loss. But I really enjoyed this story. I loved her journey and how Lydia made out in the end. It's uplifting for those who might have experienced something so tragic. To be able to live in your own world and just hang on a little more, I really liked it 😍

The Holdout: A Novel | Graham Moore
Pickpick

This was my first book by Graham Moore. I quite enjoy legal thrillers, but this one was a little far fetched for me. Written in two separate time frames, we get the story of one of the jurors in a high profile murder case. This story covers race, controversy and what unfolds in between. Did he do it? Where's her body? And what happens when the person who may have all the answers dies unexpectedly, 10 years later?

This one was 3 stars for me.

Omg. What did I just read? Low's obsession was slightly disturbing. I found myself needing to understand the relationship between Freya and her husband Max. Add to it the odd friendship she built with Jamie and her husband Brian. This book had me hooked from the start. I was engaged from the start and it was refreshing to read, something so different. Thank you #netgalley for this #arc

Loved this book! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was a good year of books for me. Lots I enjoyed, and a few I fought to get through. The last few months I haven't picked up as many books as I'd have liked to. But all in all... Seeing my Goodreads list makes me happy 😊

Now I'm really excited for full, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling bookshelf my boyfriend is making me as a Christmas present.

lil_ms_spitfire @Texreader Me too. I wish I could have seen more today. But there are so many around... You just have to find them. ButthTs part of the adventure 🤓 3y
Texreader @seglitis I have five in my neighborhood! I try to visit them regularly. Is there a place to go to learn where to find them? It‘d be a fun adventure to look beyond my neighborhood 3y
lil_ms_spitfire @Texreader You can look here https://littlefreelibrary.org/ If they registered their library, then it should come up here. However, several of the ones I stumbled upon yesterday were not on this list... AND some of the ones I was looking for were no longer there. So I am not sure how updated it is. Good Luck! I wish I had 5 in my neighborhood...
