I reached for this one pretty quickly after blowing through The Good Daughter, but this one didn‘t grab me as much. I didn‘t really like Claire or Lydia, and honestly had a hard time suspending my disbelief in some parts. still, Slaughter is great at her genre!

this book was many things...a page-turning mystery-within-a-mystery, a survival story, a tale of doing whatever it takes to protect family. this was my first time reading Karin Slaughter, and it definitely won‘t be the last!

finished my first book of 2019! I actually started this one in 2018, though, and set it aside a while before picking it up again. it wasn‘t the book...it was me, because I did really like it! Thorne‘s writing style elevates this beyond a basic enemies-to-lovers romcom. if you like a good slow burn, this one‘s for you! 🔥💕 #romantsy

Hate Notes | Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward

a little enemies-to-lovers romance that started off with a lot of promise, but kinda went off the rails at the end. still, it‘s loaded with cute, romantic moments between the main characters, and I enjoyed it more than a couple of other 2018 romances with way more hype. also I totally stalked the cover model on Insta. 😍 ps - this one‘s free on Kindle for Amazon Prime members. #romantsy

Dogearedcopy I read this last night and feel much the same way you do: That it started as one thing and ramped up into something else altogether. I was expecting something more rom-com and unified in tone. I liked it but I‘m struggling with how feel about it overall and how I‘m ultimately going to rate it. 8mo
shanebeth @Dogearedcopy it was a weird shift in tone. I still liked it for the most part, though! 8mo

a fun thing I got to do this week was see John Stamos with The Beach Boys! he even sang the “Forever” song from Full House. 😂 it was a great concert. The Beach Boys have so many awesome songs. ❤️🎶

robinb Cool! So does he just join them occasionally? I know I‘ve seen him in some of their videos. 8mo
shanebeth @robinb I think so, maybe when he isn‘t busy with other stuff. he was onstage with them for pretty much every song, playing drums or guitar! 8mo

This ended up being a cute, clever spin on Pretty Woman, but I wasn‘t crazy about some of the writing and actually came pretty close to abandoning it at one point. I liked the way the characters developed, especially Michael, and I adored his family. It wasn‘t quite what I was expecting, but I liked it! #botm

I found my sophomore English writing journal (circa 1993), and it had lots of commentary about the books we read in class, like this note about Watership Down. I wasn‘t as kind to others, like Silas Marner. 😂 #tbt

Bostonmomx2 I had an actual “reading” class in seventh and eighth grades. I wish I still had even just the reading list but would give anything to have the journal we kept. I know we had to read some stuff in high school but by then I hated anything I was told to do lol 13mo

This short story collection by one of my favorite authors was a quick, engrossing read. I felt some feels, laughed, and even gasped at a few unexpected twists. If you‘ve read this and want another small dose of Sittenfeld, google “Show Don‘t Tell,” a pretty good story that she didn‘t complete in time for this book.

fans of The Bachelor and its ilk probably won‘t learn anything new here, but Amy Kaufman‘s writing is really enjoyable. even though the show itself has banned her from official events (explained in the book), she fully embraces her Bach fandom, and she‘s funny! I loved the humor in the chapter about her experiences attending different Bachelor/ette alumni appearances. this was great entertainment journalism.
