I ended up really enjoying the book. Should have known Jackson wouldn't disappoint. But I am sad that I'm finished. I may have to read it again - that's the problem with good books, you want to stay in the story for a long time but you also want to g ...more

Mary voted for The Good Egg as Best Picture Books in the Opening Round of the 2019 Goodreads Choice Awards.
The Good Egg by Jory John
Mary is 67% done with Devious: I'm not sure if this is taking me longer because I know if I sit and read it I'm going to regret being done of if it's because I'm not fond of the characters. Jackson's writing is superb as always but I'm not loving the characters. But I'm pulled in each time with these words she writes so I don't mean the characters are poorly written, rather I've got such a good impression of them.

I loved the love of rare books and small town life that

3.5 stars.

I read too many Stephen King books as a teen. Books like Carrie, Firestarter, Salem's Lot, The Shining and Pet Cemetery. Those books were creepy (sometimes terrifying) and the stories always moved from page one to the end.
