So. Much. Fun.

This super cute Cinderella-goes-to-Geeky-Con story is probably closer to a 3.5 in terms of merit because I think it could have been even better (view spoiler)

THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR is a sleek, smart, guilty pleasure. The opening chapter begins with an unnamed girl falling to her death from a skyscraper in 22nd century New York, and the questions of "who" and "why" are ever-present as this thriller unfolds. ...more

3.5 stars Surprisingly interesting, especially towards the end. An entertaining airport-type read, with an intriguing subplot that doesn't surface until you realize what's going on.

Review to come of the audio edition. I'll have to look up the voice

3.5 stars

The good news: THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN was not a fluke.

The not-so-great news: this book's plot and characters are less compelling, and its flaws much more obvious.

Review to come of the audio edition.

2.5 stars The first third of this book was so engrossing. A woman is accused of murdering her two children--but Ruth is not your typical mother, and she will not garner the usual sympathy, because she's always perfectly made up and she drinks in exce ...more

The first 75% of the book was terrific--lots of twists and turns, well-paced, interesting character development and relationships, I was eager to return to my audiobook every time I was away from it. I also loved that contrary to most thrill

“I replay the scene again and again, the broken mashed-up face looming over me, the knowledge between the two of us that I'd done it. That act of kindness is still more unfathomable to me than any cruelty.”
Stephanie Oakes, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly

Leigh Bardugo
“I am not ruined. I am ruination.”
Leigh Bardugo, Ruin and Rising

Sarah J. Maas
“You touch him again," Manon said, "and I'll drink the marrow from your bones.”
Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire

Sarah J. Maas
“She was not afraid. She would remake the world - remake it for them, those she had loved with this glorious, burning heart; a world so brilliant and prosperous that when she saw them again in the Afterworld, she would not be ashamed. She would build it for her people, who had survived this long, and whom she would not abandon. She would make them a kingdom such as there never had been, even if it took until her last breath.”
Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire

Oh, thought Blue. So this is what I can't have.
