I think I agree with @Patchshank and @Maggie4483 on this one. It was an engrossing book and you really become attached to the Ciaglia‘s in their journey, but so much of the book relies on the shock value of the serial killers‘ letters that I don‘t know if I could recommend this to someone without copious trigger warnings. It kind of felt like Pete Earley would have just used the letters and dumped everything else if Tony let him. #lmpbc #truecrime

Maggie4483 I love your new username!!! 💫 1mo
wisherwishinguponastar @Maggie4483 Thanks! I decided to go for a more positive vibe! There is no way I was planning a Disney World trip at the same time. 1mo

A really cute manga created after Shinibumaru‘s stories about a bookstore in the spirit realm. It reminds me of “The Ancient Magus‘s Bride.” #manga #bookjournal

Since I didn‘t finish this title during my month with it I decided to get my own copy and… it. Is. Done. Whoo! That was crazy, but if you are in to true crime and haven‘t read it already, it is consider a classic of the genre for a reason! #lmpbc #groupt #round14

Maggie4483 It is definitely dense. I spent an entire day reading it and felt like I barely made a dent. 1mo

Thanks for the tag, @EadieB !
💚 I really did not want to read “Pride and Prejudice” as a kid and then as an adult I was really hesitant to reread it. I am going to classify it as a romance for the sake of the post because that is what I thought it was before I did my reread of it in college.

Volumes 1 and 2 cover season 1 of the anime from the 90s. I remember watching that on tv while I tried to put my hair in Usagi‘s buns. The manga is a bit darker, but you don‘t get to spend as much time with the other Sailor Guardians. It is still super fun to finally be reading this! #bookjournal #manga

If you have sent me some #litsylove recently, I put a postcard with random bits of information about me on it. I was inspired by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks email. I thought it might be helpful for a reminder of just who you are sending letters to. If it is silly feel free to do what you want with it, but I hope you at least enjoy the lovely post card art!

I would like to formally apologize if you heard my disheartened cry when I found out that this is the finale for my current favorite series. The poor people at my local Barnes and Noble must have irreparable damage to their ears. (Just kidding, but I am sad that this is goodbye to these characters. I can‘t wait to see Fujita‘s next project!!!) #manga #bookjournal

I have been reading this for two months and while I enjoyed the first two in this series, l am going to tap out. I like the relationships developed in the prior novels, but everything in this one is very big and very anticlimactic. I read a summary and I guess this isn‘t my thing even though I really wanted it to be. #bookjournal (How do you guys deal with DNF shame? Because I am feeling it right now.)

Bookgoil I don‘t often dnf but I wish I did now on the last two in that series that came out. I didn‘t mind that one it gets exciting at the end like all Maas books but I‘ve fully given up on the author as each book I read gets worse to me so I think it‘s time to move on. I sometimes retry a dnf later if I think it‘s a mood thing. One I felt the exact same way and another I loved so much just depends. 2mo
wisherwishinguponastar @Bookgoil I am just glad to know that I am not the only person. I think Maas does relationships really well, but that all got put to the side for the gigantic conflict. That part of her story was just kind of dry and a little wishy washy. 2mo
Bookgoil @booksellerofyourdiscontent I think her writing is getting worse over time not better 🤣 and she‘s trying to add a lot more “smut” in these later books now. (edited) 2mo

I thought I would give this journal a shot. Everybody has stress and drama in their life, but I am realizing mine has stalled me to the point of despondency. So I am trying to “land on the other side of despair” by looking closely at myself and hopefully moving forward. I hope no one minds if I share some of the less personal pages, but I hope that posting them encourages me to keep going! #mentalhealth

TheAromaofBooks I hope you are able to find some peace and contentment!! I love journaling and also have been known to take what my husband calls “rage walks“ when the drama with some of my family gets to be too much!! I just get around the block as fast as I can!! 2mo

TheAromaofBooks @kspenmoll - I read somewhere that our stress systems are designed for fight or flight, so physically moving can help because you are focusing on the “flight“ aspect and your body feels like it can move into a recovery phase. I don't know how true that is but I do feel better if I walk as fast as I can for a few minutes!!! 😂 2mo
kspenmoll @TheAromaofBooks That makes total sense! Moving always seems to help. (edited) 2mo

A crazy crime with an equally interesting cast of characters! Puit is our unreliable narrator on the life and crimes of Brooke‘s Lee West. The unfortunate passenger next to me on the way to Denver, CO caught a glimpse of some of the crime scene photos! I don‘t think they were as interested as I was. #lmpbc #groupt I will send this book off on Tuesday! @Patchshank

The version of this graphic novel I read had volumes 1, 2, and 3 in it. If you enjoyed the tv series, then this is the one I suggest. It is beautifully done. Each personality gets its own penciller that has a very distinct style. The story includes Spector‘s origin. Some questions weren‘t answered, but still fun! #bookjournal #graphicnovel #comics

I love the tv series and decided to pick up a graphic novel for more. Bendis has always done a good job of filling you in to the Marvel world at large, so you don‘t feel confused while reading. It might not be the best place to jump in, but between Spector, Lime, and Lopez it is very fun to read. #bookjournal #graphicnovel #comics

So much of this book made me feel such strong emotions that I think the impact of reading this story will be positive in the future once I get past the anger that was built up in me from page one. Allende has a power to make the reader feel absolute joy one page and then bottomless sorrow the next. My annotations hopefully illustrate my feelings without getting too preachy! #LMPBC #groupr #magicalrealism #bookjournal
