I have this on my TBR shelf and I really want to read it. Maybe we should do a Buddy Read for it???

Well, I can't answer, because I never read the book. I just watched the first season recently. My son always watches Netflix and sometimes the 13 Reasons Why ad is on his screen, so I thought he was watching it. There was a lot of controversy about kids watching it, so I decided to watch it. Only to find out my son wasn't watching it at all. I got hooked on it, but felt it was sooooo brutally graphic. I'm curious to know is season 2 part of the book or did the series continue on it's own story?

Oh that has me wondering because the book was very graohic.....but I think it hit some very good points on always being aware of the things you do and say....when my daughter goes to high school I plan to let her read it

Anyone read Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

I see it's a series now on HBO.

You can watch the series premiere for free here:

I did see the movie The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas . I read the book right before the movie came out and it packed such a punch I loved it. The book was jammed packed and I didn't think the movie could do it justice. The movie was good, thought provoking and well acted. Also, great for discussions. It did change things up from the book to work with the movie. My only issue from book to movie is I felt even though they tried, the movie didn't quite convey all the family did. It was the family aspect that gave such a difficult story to read so much heart.
