This book gave me so many conflicting feelings and I mean that in the best way possible. I wasn't sure at times whether to love or disapprove of Wavy & Kellen's relationship. In the end, it definitely made me think hard about other people and how although their stories can be so different from mine they're still just as "real" as I am.

Took me a long while to even get into the story line. Twisty little ending was really the only good part, in my opinion.

Enjoyed the eccentric Mr. R. F. Jackaby. Can't wait to see where Book #2 takes them.

Listened to this audiobook all in one day. Quick and easy story to follow. Definitely a little too cheesy and "insta love" for my tastes. Easily predictable. But a good fluff type book to pass some time.

Airykah13 Haha, sometimes fluff is nice 😀 3y

Little slow to start, but ending up really enjoying listening to Dan's journey into the world of mindfulness.

Behind Closed Doors | B. A. Paris

Not the best psychological thriller I've read. Many times I found myself wondering what in the world she was waiting for. JUST DO SOMETHING. Of course, that's easier said than done. Did enjoy the read through. George Clooney made me laugh.

MyNamesParadise I bailed at page 100. I found the writing to be atrocious. 3y
shaelyni @MyNamesParadise - I listened to the audiobook while at work so it's usually easier to over look things like that! 3y

I love the Whole30. It's changed my life and the way I look at food. I love FFF because it adds to the Whole30 program and gives advice for going forward with life after your Whole30 reset. And of course, I always enjoy Melissa's humor and sarcasm.

As a wine lover I really enjoyed this story. Slightly predictable. Definitely had me craving a good glass of red.

Finding Jake: A Novel | Bryan Reardon

Loved this book. Such a moving take on a very tragic situation. Really puts the media and how people jump to conclusions into perspective. Not many take the time to consider the innocent families of these criminals.

First audiobook I've ever listened to with redacted material. Enjoyed the random classical music that played often in between curse words ? story was so-so. Very informative but not keep you "on the edge of your seat" type writing.

Ahh Litsy! It's been MONTHS since my last post. I have still been reading like crazy, just took a little hiatus from posting. Back with my current read, Jackaby. This ones been on my TBR list for quite awhile now. Really enjoying the set up of the story so far. Abigail and Jackaby make me think of Robin and Strike from JK Rowlings series. Just with supernatural cases added!

Still going strong with this one though 👌🏼 Today is Day 11 of my Whole30. I've made it through a night out with my girlfriends, a wedding AND the county fair without going off the plan! Majorly proud of myself for that accomplishment ☺️

😬 I've tried and failed before, but I'm giving this thing a shot again starting Oct 1 - reading and rereading this a million times for motivation!

Onceuponatime Ivedone this and I think it is pretty hard at first 3y
Onceuponatime Oops, I wasn't finished! ? Anyway, it's hard in a different way...similar to coming off of a drug or substance use. Once you're past the "withdrawal" stage it does get easier and is very enjoyable because you start to feel so good. Hang in there! ?? 3y
shaelyni @Onceuponatime - thanks! My problem is always when a friend is all "hey lets go to dinner!" I always end up blowing it. I need to have more self control ? 3y
Onceuponatime @shaelyni Yes, eating out is definitely less fun because you can't indulge like you used to. And the food that you can't have that you're craving most is sitting right in front of you on everyone else's plates. Finding that willpower to keep going is hard! So yes, you are doing a hard thing! 3y

The Game Changer | J. Sterling

Read the first book in this series AGES ago and finally decided to pick this one up as it's a quick/cheap ebook. Realizing I don't remember much from the first book at all at this point, but I'm thinking now that maybe I wasn't crazy about the first one and there's a reason I never read this one. Oh well 😬

Not the best book I've ever read, but I enjoyed it as an audiobook that's nice and easy to listen to while multitasking. Found myself laughing out loud at many different places and that isn't something I often do.

Needed a new audiobook to start listening to for my evening walk last night so I got this per recommendation of Hoopla. I previously listened to The Pact on Hoopla and enjoyed it so I'm hoping this will be a good choice. I was laughing out loud during my walk at the Prologue so I guess that's a good sign!Oh and I am totally already digging the English accent of the male narrator - I could listen to that for days😍

This book has so so many wonderful reviews... I want to try and come back to it at a later date but try as I might I just couldn't get into it. It's a pretty long one and I only made it about 20% of the way through.

anrobe This is the only Irving novel that I couldn't get into! 3y
Hazel0303 I read this book in 9th grade and loved it. Not sure if I would today. And oddly enough @anrobe this is the only Irving novel that I tried that I could get into! 3y
Alisnazzy I freaking HATED it. And I had to finish it because it was a school assignment. It ruined a good portion of my summer before senior year of high school. No lie. 3y
shaelyni @anrobe @Ambrosnazzy - glad to hear I'm not the only person in history who didn't enjoy this! 3y

Can't recommend this book enough. If you have problems saying 'no' to people, setting boundaries in your relationships or knowing what IS your responsibility and what isn't - then this book is for you! Re-reading through it for the 2nd time today as I could use a little reminder of some of these principles right now.
