This book was amazing from start to finish! I'd even say I enjoyed this one more than her last book I listened to 'girl on a train'. I would definitely give this one a try if you enjoy psychological thrillers. 🙌📖

This book had me trying to predict every twist and turn but never quite getting close to the real picture. This thriller was absolutely amazing and the narrator Melissa Chambers was fantastic too! Not to be mistaken with Paula Hawkins, The girl on the train, but still definitely worth the listen or read! 😊

BeaG I loved it. 1mo

The Bell Jar | Sylvia Plath
post image
Pickpick

Written in the early 60's the author had used a male pseudonym. It's been said to be more of an autobiographical piece which breaks my heart. This amazingly written book follows the challenges of a young poet in the 60s aswell as her never ending battle with mental health. It's unfortunate that the author died of suicide at the age of 30. I saw she had some other publications I plan to look into.
4/5 ⭐

Jemmygem Great book and description 2mo

Im so beyond happy I finally sat down to read this book. I would highly recommend it to any Murderino, but also anyone who enjoys memoirs. I was soo excited to read this book but once I got it I was anxious it would be a let down.. Im so happy it was better than I had anticipated! 😊 Have you ever read a duel memoir? If not I suggest you start with this one! 💖📖
Ps. I washed my sheets yesterday... life of pets 😅

I watched the secret garden 1000 times growing up but had never read the book. I loved reading it and getting to experience it as an adult! I definitely had a better understanding of all the characters and how hard every situation would have been. Now I can't wait to re-watch the movie since it has probably been over 10 years! ❤

This book had me hooked from page one. I had never really thought of how scary it would be to lose power throughout an entire Nation. This book followed a few different story lines, an American journalist, an A class hacker, power plant workers, the milatary, along with others! It showed the impact on everyone within the communities throughout all of Europe. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that comes across it! 😊
4/5 ⭐🌟⭐🌟

Buechersuechtling Yepp, I agree. I remember it very well and felt the same when I read it. A book you never really forget. 7mo

I've had this book on my shelf since highschool and finally decided to read it after about 6years. I really enjoyed watching the main character grow so much within the book. It reminded me of myself at her age, trying to rediscover who I was but also fitting into societal norms. Great book, wish I would have picked it up off my shelf when I had first gotten it. ❤📚

This book was a nice short read. I didn't realize until the second chapter that it was actually translated from Danish! Not only that but it's based on the last execution in Svendborg, Denmark. I would say it's worth the read if you ever come across it!

It took me about 5 chapters to really get into it but after that I was hooked! This Canadian author tells her story in the most capturing way. It is truly remarkable and kept me at the edge of my seat almost the whole way through. I would recommend this memoir to anyone who comes across it! 📖

Waiting for summer so I can go out and read on my deck. This weather makes me want to run, hide and repeat every winter! Instead I'll sip coffee, read and stare down the snowbank that is now about my height.

I would rate this book 4/5.. I wish I could give it 5 stars because reading it gave me some good laughs and I enjoyed getting a glimpse into the life of Mindy Kaling. I really did feel like I was hanging out with her! With that being said, there were some parts I found hard to get through and I had to read it between books instead of bingeing it like I had hoped. Still a good book and happy I finished it. 😊

I just finished the book, put it down covered in goose bumps. I'm sure everyone has read this book due to the hype but let me tell you the hype does not live up to the name. Reading this book I felt every emotion Michelle was trying to portray. Even though the GSK has been caught this book gave me the creeps in every kind of way! 11/10 would recommend.
RIP Michelle, thanks to you the door has been opened, and the GSK has walked into the light.
