Edge of Nowhere | C.H. Armstrong

Mehso-so

This was loosely based on the author‘s grandmother‘s life of surviving during the hardships of 1930s Oklahoma (economy, Dust Bowl, etc.). And while I do not doubt the absolute despair of that time and place, I felt that the never ending atrocities that befell the character of Victoria were too overblown and a bit unbalanced. There‘s suicide, stillbirths, deaths by both ruptured appendix and poisonous snakes, spousal abuse, extortion for sex, ⬇️

robinb ...murder, and I‘ll stop there because I‘m exhausted. 😩 This ended up being between a so-so and a Pan for me. 3/5⭐️ #NetGalley #CentralAvenuePublishing 3d
mabell My goodness that sounds exhausting 😳 3d
Smrloomis 😳 I definitely couldn‘t keep going with all that 🙄 3d
Freespirit It does sound grim😁 3d
robinb @mabell @Smrloomis @Freespirit And I probably left some things out...it was simply too much negativity thrown at me in a 270 page book. 😩😳🤪 3d

I won‘t say much here about this one as it‘s a #whodunitthesequel pick. I don‘t want to give too much away. I had misgivings going in (based on the title) as I normally steer away from true crime/horror. This was more fantasy/horror. Yes, it was frightening and gory, but the 15 yo MC kept me mesmerized and anxious to see how it all turned out, and the ending was a bit of a surprise to me. I was riveted, saddened and appalled by this one. 4/5⭐️ 🔽

robinb Just realized this book is the first in a six-book series. Will I read more? Maybe, but not right now. I‘m afraid John Wayne Cleaver will keep breaking my heart. 💔 @Librarybelle @ScientistSam (edited) 1w

Any Robin Hobb fans out there? I think I‘d like to try a series, but where should I start? Or does it matter? Thanks for your advice! 😊

AlaMich You should start with the Assassins trilogy. The second trilogy, Liveship Traders is set in a different part of Hobb‘s world, but there is a little overlap. And then there‘s the Tawny Man trilogy (Fool‘s Errand etc.) which picks up some time after Assassin‘s Quest. 2w
robinb @AlaMich Thanks so much!!! So is the Assassins trilogy also known as the Farseer trilogy? Beginning with Assassin‘s Apprentice? 2w

Soubhiville I loved the Liveship Traders series, but you should start with Assassin‘s Apprentice. I‘ve loved every one of her books. The audiobooks are excellent too, if you‘re into that! 2w

This was a nice, fluffy read about one woman and her four best friends...who happen to be guys...one of whom she begins to have deeper feelings for.

There were definitely some parts that were a bit silly and juvenile for a group of 27-year-olds, and the heroine could be irritating at times, but overall it told a rather sweet, loyal tale of friendships and love...both platonic and romantic. 3.75/5⭐️

Thanks to #NetGalley and #EntangledPublishing.

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane

Pickpick

An intense drama, this centers around two families over decades of their lives...how they meet, mesh, clash and ultimately merge. There‘s mental illness, alcoholism, and an especially violent episode as seen through multiple characters from each family. I‘ll be honest, while I felt this was an excellent read, I sometimes felt bogged down by the moments of darkness and despair the characters had to work through to come out whole. ⬇️

robinb So while only 400 pgs., it really felt much longer to me and actually took me longer to read than I had anticipated (as I took breaks when the emotional density got to me). 4.25⭐️
Thanks to #NetGalley and #Scribner for providing me the ARC. All opinions are strictly my own. Out 5/28

The publisher sent me the first and third books in this rom-com series after I read/reviewed the second one. I‘ve decided (again) that I‘m just not a huge fan of contemporary love stories. While I liked the second one better (Smitten by the Brit...see a theme here?🤣), I‘m just not much into these shallow stories. The writing is fine. I just want to be more invested. “It‘s me, not you.” 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ 3/5⭐️ Better review on GR.

I simply savor each new book that comes out in this historical mystery series, and this latest one (14th) did not disappoint. In a bit of a twist, the initial murder victim here is also one of the vilest, most sadistic villains that this series has produced...so no tears over losing him! 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ But the victims start piling up, and the perpetrator totally surprised me! 😳 I just love the way these characters have grown and developed! ❤️

5/5💛

robinb @DGRachel Yes, I didn‘t order (I usually wait until it gets a little less expensive eventually). I got anxious for it and got it from library (was surprised they already had it).

So excited to get this latest installment of a favorite mystery series from my library. Thanks to my wonderful husband for picking it up for me since I‘m not able to currently drive. ❤️😔

Looking forward to diving back into St. Cyr‘s world! 🖤🖤🖤

Cathythoughts Sounds good. I must look up this series ♥️👍🏻 1mo
robinb @Cathythoughts I hope you do, Cathy! This is the 14th in series, and I‘m totally hooked. 😊 1mo

For a light-hearted, sexy romp this was fine...a case of best friends of best friends (maid of honor/best man) falling in love. I actually liked the male lead here more than the female, but then again I may be biased because I love all things British. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤫🤣🤣😂

As this was the second in series, I‘ll probably go back and read the first. 4/5⭐️ #romantsy
