Show Us Your Books


Life According to Steph



I was reading a blog post and one of the comments sent me off in a search.. It about borrowing digital books right to her Kindle and how that was so much easier these days. Within minutes, I had a new elibrary card to the St Louis Library and Libby downloaded. I had waitlisted 3 books, borrowed 1 and discovered borrowing Audiobooks with Libby as well.  That was last Thursday...


Since then I have finished:

Crazy Rich Asians on Audiobook


I liked this far more than I thought I would.. I will admit I checked it out to see what the hype was over the movie. I also started watching the movie, however, I will not finish that. I know so many love the movie, but in my opionion, it's another case of the story being lost due to time constraints on film and frankly, the 20 minutes I have watched of the movie I do not like.  I have already download China Rich Girlfriend on Audiobook (and have started listing on my commute) and have a hold on the 3rd Audiobook.  I recommend the book - especially if you have only seen the move.. So much has been lost in putting this into film

What Alice Forgot:


I liked it, the start was a bit slow for me and thankfully it picked up quick, I will not finish a book that doesn't hook me within the first 4 chapters or so. I have never been able to force myself to read a book that wasn't a school assigned read. This is a good quick poolside read once you get past the first few chapters. 

Still Me: 


I loved this trilogy - puffy sticker heart loved it. I think it put a very nice bow on Louisa's life and ended well. I loved Margot - and have my eye on the collection of short stories JoJo took the character from. 

On my now reading/listening to list: 



On Audio                                                                                                    on Kindle

  2. I wanted to read Crazy Rich Asians but ended up watching the movie instead. It made me cry. I suspect they'll make a movie of the second one so perhaps I'll read that one!

  3. My library uses a different app but I really have liked borrowing books from there as well. What Alice Forgot is one that I enjoyed when I read it!

    1. I'm loving it. Honestly I love to read but got into a huge slump and didn't read much over the last two years. Which is strange for me - for then you never say me without a book. Being able to have the audiobooks is a huge game changer, I have an hour commute. Being able to have a book read to me has made it more enjoyable.

  5. I am pretty sure that I am the only person left on this planet who has not read Me Before You and I've become weirdly proud of that fact for no good reason. I have no doubt it's a great trilogy but now I'm all - let's see how long I can go before I read it. :D

  8. What Alice Forgot did have a slow start, now that I think about it. It wasn't my favorite of Moriarity's.

    I loved Still Me, but hated Me Before You lol (I don't even know why I read them all :)

    1. Me Before you was a hard read, emotion wise for me. The ending flat pissed me off which is why I read the next one I wanted to know that Lou was ok. I'm a cheeseball I know LOL
