December‘s TBR and list for #BookSpin #DoubleSpin #BookSpinBingo

Also this counts as my TBR for #WinterGames
#TeamGameSleighers

Clwojick I truly suggest you consume the audiobook of Daisy Jones and the Six instead of reading the physical book, if you can. The narration is fantastic. Theres a full cast, and music added in. I seriously fell in love with it! 1w
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 1w

This was a story that broke my heart so many times. It was unexpectedly depressing with how real and raw this felt. It‘s not a happy story, which I mean I wasn‘t exactly expecting, but it never had any moments of levity. I loved this story and appreciated it for what it was but I don‘t think I could ever bring myself to read it again. The only thing keeping it from a 5 was the abrupt ending even though it was an expected end.

Be careful what you wish for. I wanted a book I couldn‘t put down because of my slump and that‘s what I‘ve got. However the more I read the more bummed out I get. Any books that deal with toxic mother/daughter relationships or perceived mental illnesses in those relationships, always hits me harder than anything else. There‘s another aspect I wasn‘t prepared for as well. As my husband and I talk about having kids, I always find myself having ⬇️⬇️

magyklyXdelish …a lot of the same fears and worries as Blythe. I‘m terrified of anything having to do with PPD or anything that even looks like it, so this is playing on those fears of mine and I‘ve found myself teary eyed a lot reading this. 2w
magyklyXdelish I think I need to pick a happy book after this one 😩🙈 2w

I‘ve only read 2 books this month. Man this year has just been awful for reading. I ended last year with 117 read and made my goal for this year 150. Only done 80 so far this year. Feeling kinda bummed about it. However I only need 2 more books to get the socks from #BOTM so I‘m gonna start this one tonight. Hope it‘s good enough to hook me right away since I‘m in a never ending slump.

The elusive Mr Frank is my reading buddy tonight 🤗

I loved the overwhelming theme of believing women and I appreciated the realism behind the fact that not a lot of women are. There were a couple characters I couldn‘t find myself attached to and considering this is told in multiple perspectives, this is why I didn‘t rate higher. I still enjoyed this one though and hope my #LMPBC family does too.

This took a while to finish, mainly because it took ALMOST 200 PAGES to get into. The writing was soooooooooo repetitive. “It will be years before Addie knows this, it will be years before Addie realizes this” and green is my fave color but I swear I wanted to scream everytime she she discovered a new shade of it in Luc‘s eyes 🙄 what kept this from totally sucking was Luc. I enjoyed his character a lot.

Short creepy little read. Landing kind of in the middle on this one. I think my expectations were a little too high. It didn‘t really have the impact I was expecting. Perhaps because the kindle version I bought missed the final police report, I read about that on Reddit. Which is a shame, I probably would have rated it higher otherwise.

5 pts for the book + 10 pts for 1 hr read = 15 pts for #TeamSlaughter

vivastory I saw it too. Someone literally exclaimed "What the?!" during the ending. I couldn't help but make a joke about Black Philip having really grown up the past few years ? In all seriousness I enjoyed it, but didn't love it 2mo
magyklyXdelish @vivastory that‘s hilarious that that happened with you too because in our showing a guy in the back said the SAME thing after “what the fuck” lol 2mo

An edge of your seat thriller (more mystery to me honestly) that had me hooked from the beginning. The only thing keeping it from being a 5 is the ending had a few plot holes in my opinion

After reading “Little Heaven” I expected it to be gross, but I think this was more disgusting, honestly. Which I‘m okay with. I like when horror makes me scared or uncomfy. The only things I didn‘t necessarily care for were the ending and the excessive animal violence.

5 points since this is more horror but 110 for the 11 hours reading time. So 115 points for #TeamSlaughter

I‘ve been MIA on here for a while. This book has taken me so long to finish. This was so emotional and terrifying I had to keep taking breaks and it made it hard to want to keep going. I‘m not a huge fan of non fiction so I think that‘s part of what made me like this so much. It‘s written in a way that you still feel like you‘re reading a story.

This had some pacing issues and I wish there were more creepiness and I wish more time was spent in the willows but the mystery kept me locked in and I loved the humor. When it was creepy and suspenseful is when this was at its best. The parts that were creepy were really creepy. I just wanted more creepy lol this was still fun though !!

I had so much fun reading this. It was filled with so much wit, humor, heart and hella queer characters. Plus with the story within a story within a story, illustrations and FOOTNOTES I was just blissfully happy the whole time.

Until the end. The ending just wasn‘t as satisfying as the journey. It just felt kind of abrupt and left some things hanging.

This was fantastic and also scary at the same time. The way the author writes made this little book feel denser than it actually is. Also I get that the ending was supposed to be ambiguous since “Offred‘s” story is just one of many, but I hate not knowing things 😩

For the people who‘ve read this and the sequel, how did you feel about The Testaments?

Zoes_Human I enjoyed The Testaments a great deal. It‘s entirely different from Handmaid‘s—the tone, the pacing, and style. I think that was A good choice though. She‘s never have been able to replicate the original. 4mo
SamAnne I consider Handmaid‘s a classic. I had trepidation picking up the sequel but loved it. 4mo
