Moxie By Jennifer Mathieu
Rate:🌟🌟🌟🌟 /5 “It occurs to me that this is what it means to be a feminist. Not a humanist or an equalist or whatever. But a feminist. It’s not a bad word. After today it might be my favourite word. Because really all it is is girls supporting each other and wanting to be treated like human beings in a world that’s always finding ways to tell them they’re not.” ―Jennifer Matthieu ‘Moxie’ is…

Have you read this?
It was popular on bookstagram and has been on my list since it released. For some reason I just never picked it up. Finally I started reading it because my hold was ready at the library and I got tired of suspending it (this girl was at her library limit and needed to put other books on hold).
It wasn’t particularly bad but it also didn’t feel like a must read and therefore I don’t understand the hype around this book. I also felt like I kept comparing it to In Five Years. The difference is… I loved In Five Years!
I wonder if I would have enjoyed it more in the fall/winter when the weather doesn’t feel so bright and hopeful. A different season, a different mood. (I’m not the only one that feels this way about weather & books right?!)
Again, it wasn’t a bad read but I don’t think it lived up to its hype. It dragged on a bit and I often found myself asking what the point of the story was. If this is stuck on your TBR, you’re not missing out.

Day 14: A Book Turned Movie and Totally Desecrated
This is probably the easiest question I’m going to get this entire challenge

I have no words.
Because all my Percy Jackson lovers know this one explains itself.

Red Widow @AlmaKatsu
Of course I’ve read The Hunger and The Deep and I assumed that Red Widow would follow along those lines, lines which I loved for the record. I could not have been more wrong. How can an author write such completely different genres!? Aaaaah, but lest you think that I was disappointed, I was not. This is, by far, one of the best spy novels I’ve ever read and, wow, I’ve read all of the original Tom…

Happy Thursday! . ☀️Book Review ☀️ . ☀️☀️☀️☀️ The Happy Family by Jackie Kabler is a fast-paced, entertaining read perfect for your day at the beach or pool. I enjoyed the well-developed characters, particularly Beth, who is a single mom of two school-age children. She has set up a great friend/support system at work and home with friends who, though are older than her, really care about what she's going through and are there for her when she needs them. Her mom walked out of her life 30 years ago, and when she walks back into it, unexpectedly, the supportive world that Beth has carefully created for herself and her children begins unraveling at the seams. When the unraveling starts, so too does the suspense and pace of the book. I hated what Beth was going through, and boy did she frustrate me more than once, but it sure did make the pages turn fast and furious as I wanted to see how far the derailed train would go before it crashed. I couldn't wait to see what would happen and the pace adjusted appropriately as my need to know grew stronger. I enjoyed the twists at the end. Okay, I admit I did see all of them from early on, but I still enjoyed finding out if I was right or not. After all, I could have easily been wrong because there were other possibilities. Sometimes, it's not about how shocking the twists are but just that several possibilities keep the reader guessing until the end. I loved the themes of the importance of friendship and family that wind their way through the mystery plot. Beth has an extraordinary group of friends, and she has managed to keep a good relationship with her ex-husband and the woman in his life. Even though she has not had a mother since she was ten years old, she is a wonderful mom to her two children, not leaving any room for her mother's mistakes to become her own. If you are looking for a fast-paced, entertaining psychological thriller, look no further. The Happy Family is that book. . . . . #allthebooksjune21 #bookandflowers #bookreview #blogtour #bookblogger #bookbloggersofinstagram #bookblog #bookblogging #thehappyfamily #jackiekabler #netgalley #netgalleyreads #psychologicalthriller #thrillerbooksaddict (at Lake Davidson) https://www.instagram.com/p/CP8LreirEjT/?utm_medium=tumblr

My thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and the author for this copy of The Disappearing Act, out on June 8th! Check out the summary from Goodreads under my review!
My review:
I read this in a day and it had me hooked.
A lot of what you see in Hollywood will be fool's gold. What Steadman does is show that there is so much grittiness in LA, and you sometimes really need to dig below the surface to see it. There will always be an ulterior motive.
There is an unspoken expectation that in Hollywood you should look out for yourself and yourself only. If you become too involved with others, it will become very easy to see that nothing good can come of it.
This is what we see when Mia becomes involved with Emily.
The characters had interesting stories, I loved the twists, and there were some subplots that really creeped me out in the way that only a good thriller could.
🌹🌹🌹🌹/5
Goodreads summary:
A British actress discovers the dark side of Hollywood when she is the only witness to the sudden disappearance of a woman she meets at an audition in this psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of Something in the Water and Mr. Nobody.
Once a year, actors from across the globe descend on the smog and sunshine of Los Angeles for pilot season. Every cable network and studio looking to fill the rosters of their new shows enticing a fresh batch of young hopefuls, anxious, desperate and willing to do whatever it takes to make it. Careers will be made, dreams will be realized, stars will be born. And some will be snuffed out.
British star Mia Eliot has landed leading roles in costume dramas in her native country, but now it's time for Hollywood to take her to the next level. Mia flies across the Atlantic to join the hoard of talent scrambling for their big breaks. She's a fish out of water in the ruthlessly competitive and faceless world of back-to-back auditioning. Then one day she meets Emily, another actress from out of town and a kindred spirit. Emily is friendly and genuine and reassuringly doesn't seem to be taking any of it too seriously. She stands out in a conveyor-belt world of fellow auditionees. But a simple favor turns dark when Emily disappears and Mia realizes she was the last person to see her, and the woman who knocks on Mia's door the following day claiming to be her new friend isn't the woman Mia remembers at all.
All Mia has to go on is the memory of a girl she met only once . . . and the suffocating feeling that something terrible has happened. Worse still, the police don't believe her when she claims the real Emily has gone missing. So Mia is forced to risk the role of a lifetime to try to uncover the truth about Emily, a gamble that will force her to question her own sanity as the truth goes beyond anything she could ever have imagined.
Actress and author Catherine Steadman has written a gripping thriller set in a world close to home that asks the question: In a city where dreams really do come true, how far would you go to make the unreal real?
My review:

I wanted to write a review for this book but I didn't love it and wasn't really sure why. I might need a break from fantasy (esp YA and adult) but my depression has also been really strong for the past few weeks so who knows. . I've been frustrated because I want to enjoy outdoors and the summer and my time off but I don't ACTUALLY want to leave my house. . Anyway, I'm doing my best to stay active here because I do like talking about and sharing books but I'm just having a tough time these days. . Hope you guys are doing okay! . #Lore #Fantasy #Mythology #GreekMythology #BookRecommendations #BookBlogger #BookBlog #BookishCommunity #Bookstagrammer #Bookstagram #Bibliophile #BookishLoveGroup #BookishLove #ReadersOfInstagram #Reader #Books #Book #Bookworm #Bookish #BookNerd #InstaBook #BooksOfInstagram #BookPhotography #Read #BookLove #BooksBooksBooks #InstaBooks #IGReads #BookCommunity https://www.instagram.com/p/CP6eg8PLXwJ/?utm_medium=tumblr
