Super creepy and very atmospheric read. Some parts even genuinely scared me. I had a lot of fun with this one.

Wowowowow. Can‘t really say much about this without spoiling it but it‘s really tragic and really creepy. Reminds me of one of my fave movies but I can‘t say which or it gives away a major spoiler. My only complaint is how much it dragged after the climax.

Damn. This shit is so fucking sad. I‘m only halfway through so I can only imagine how much more tragic it‘s going to get. It‘s always the fucked up parent/child relationships that hit me the hardest, man.

This was such a cute story full of great character work. Especially Frances, I adore her. The mystery was riveting and overall this was just a wonderful break from the more heavy reads I tend to stick to. I liked it so much I checked out the second one from the library! Great pick, Amanda ♥️

So I finished this over a week ago but things have been crazy. My husband‘s gramma passed so we‘ve been dealing with that.

Anyways, I really enjoyed this one. I thought the whole forgiveness thing was a little too forced upon the reader but this could be because I‘m a cynical fart lol I‘m surprised by how much I loved the romance since I‘m not typically a romance person. Very cute. This one flew by and had me chuckling!

Wow it‘s been a while since I‘ve been here. The last 3 weeks I have been sick and it‘s affected everything. My depression has made me less in the mood for reading or really anything. But I‘m back now.

To my #LMPBC peeps I will mail the books Monday afternoon ♥️

To #LitsyLove I know I‘m behind I will try to catch up I promise.

This was by far one of my biggest slumps 😕 I think my yearly goal is f-ed but oh well lol

Woof. Privileged white male whines. A lot. The most interesting parts were the beginning in his fu*k boy stage but that didn‘t last long. Even when karma bit his ass in the end it was still dull. Almost bought the sequel with this and I‘m glad I put it back 🥱

#DoubleSpin

I‘m upset cuz I marked this off for #pantone2022 cuz the paper I printed of the colors matched the cover with coffee quartz but digitally it doesn‘t match at all 😥

Clwojick Some of my matches are like that too. If you think it matches, then I say it counts! 💛 2mo

What Comes After: A Novel | JoAnne Tompkins

Pickpick

TW - animal death/cruelty

If it wasn‘t for the animal stuff, more specifically an issue I have with Rufus‘ sub plot, I would have rated higher. I thought it was completely unnecessary to the story as a whole.

Otherwise I adored Evangeline and thought this story, while slow at times, was engrossing.

I‘m very curious to see what my #LMPBC group will think 🤗

#BookSpinBingo

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I also recently read a book where one subplot/scene threw off the whole book for me. Sometimes I don't think the details are necessary! 2mo
magyklyXdelish @TheAromaofBooks I agree! Especially if it doesn‘t add anything or further the plot in anyway. Especially if it‘s 400+ pages, it‘s just not necessary. 2mo

I really enjoyed the writing in this book. It‘s definitely maybe a little verbose at times but I enjoyed how the author could make certain unrelatable things feel relatable. I‘m conflicted on how I feel about the end. I feel like it didn‘t live up to the rest of the book. I just don‘t know what to make of the end and can‘t wait to see what the rest of my book club thinks.

I‘m constantly reminded when I venture outside my comfort zone that romance just isn‘t the genre for me. This was a super cute story but I just wasn‘t invested as it‘s kinda slow in parts. For anyone that loves romance especially LGBTQ+, this is definitely a book I‘d recommend. There‘s a lot of great representation here. I just don‘t get why I can‘t get into romance? I try so hard lol

What are the odds?! The main character, Janelle, is talking about how Courduroy was the first book she read.

I can‘t waste any more time on this. I‘m almost 100 pages in and I‘m bored to tears and everytime I put it down it‘s even longer before I pick it back up. Maybe I‘ll revisit it in the future but right now it‘s time to move on.

magyklyXdelish @Michael_Gee I know I‘ll come back to it at some point but I wasted a week struggling and I just couldn‘t force myself anymore. It‘s good to know though that a second reading changed your feelings. That‘s a little more motivating for me. 4mo

Oí. I‘m surprised at myself that I‘m giving as high of a score as I am. Mainly I think it‘s because the suspense at the end was pretty good. Otherwise this was insanely repetitive, filled with plot holes, the ending was lame and most importantly this was not horror. Maybe you could call it a thriller but it wasn‘t all that thrilling till the end lol my 2.5 is generous.

Definitely a unique take on possession. I liked reading about the aftermath. I also loved the unique way ghosts are portrayed in this book and how environment affects them. While this book does get gross at some points, if you‘ve ever dabbled in bizarro or read a Nick Cutter book, the gross bits are pretty tame in comparison. This book left me wanting a sequel.

Well that didn‘t last long. I managed to make it almost 50 pages. As far as I can tell the only plot is the many ways the main character can go about having sex. That mixed with the writing, this just isn‘t my bag. I‘m cool with sex, but usually there‘s an actual plot involved that can keep me interested.
