BIC book club!

Some of us here have expressed an interest in a book club, myself, @mermadelove, @LCResz, @ZombieMetroAnt, @Mcakes. If you'd be interested in joining, reply below. My initial thought was to mail the books around but if it means that some people can't participate, then I'm all for dropping that requirement. I'd love this to be a place where we nominate our favorite book and others can read it and comment. Something fun for the new year!  ETA: the booklist:

Re: BIC book club!

hahahaha! I love reading but that's a lot of books for a series, @Samtian🤣 It is to books what Rocky is/was to movies.

Re: BIC book club!

@itsfi I lied, 19. One came out this year.

Re: BIC book club!

😂🤣😂 Ermahgerd!!! 19, @Samtian? Ohhh my! Mister Matt Damon, it seems you and your movies are little behind. 🎥 Or maybe I'm behind as it's been a loooooooong time since I've been to the movies. 😆

Re: BIC book club!

May is a slow lazy book month. I only finished 2 short ones

IMG_2627.jpegIMG_2626.jpeg
I switch up to a book by another author right now though James Patterson’s Micheal Bennet is a good series to read if you like detective stuffs

Re: BIC book club!

@blackkitty2014 @I’ve read both books a few years ago and they were great! James Patterson is one of my favourite authors ( along with the other authors he co-writes with ). Whenever I start a JP novel I just can’t put it down and have to finish it the same day, even if it’s in the wee hours of the morning HeHe !

You have great taste ❤️

Re: BIC book club!

Thx you @keana1 . James Patterson is for sure easy read. I’m still working on this series. If you have any James Patterson recommendations please do send it my way 🌹

Re: BIC book club!

I saw this and just borrowed Step on a Crack (that's #1 in series right? LOL) @blackkitty2014 

Re: BIC book club!

Yes @jaaayp Step on a Crack is the first one. I feel liked the next two are better but let me know what you think 😘

Re: BIC book club!

Lol, @blackkitty2014 !  I didn't even finish the one book I started! 😄  I have had no desire to read lately...

Re: BIC book club!

Hehehe @Titian06 . Some months it feels liked reading will need lots of effort 😂🤣 and brain power 😘

Re: BIC book club!

This @blackkitty2014!! 100%!

Re: BIC book club!

Books I've read in May

 

These are all easy reads and Idk if you guys can tell but.. there's a theme forming here LOL crime, true crime, thriller. Eeeep.

 

Some where better than others, in the order as below:

 

  • The Lost Bookshop - this is not a thriller, it's more of a fantasy/romance? It wasn't my cup of tea tbh but it was very well written and creative. Overall 🌟🌟🌟🌟
  • First Lie Wins - liked 🌟🌟🌟🌟
  • Woman in Cabin 10 - liked 🌟🌟🌟
  • Zero Days - Eh 🌟🌟
  • Suicide Med - meh 🌟

Re: BIC book club!

Oh, good to know @jaaayp. The first two were ones I had been considering, but I'm not so sure about the first one now and will pass on it. First Lie Wins, on the other hand, might be something I still pick up later in the year.

Re: BIC book club!

I can totally see that @itsfi I mean The Lost Bookshop was recommended to me from a friend and she really liked it. Have you read Midnight Library? It's not the same at all but it has that little fantasy (maybe more sci-fi?), imaginative feel to it. It wasn't bad but I usually just don't gravitate over to anything sci-fi, fantasy, etc.

Re: BIC book club!

@jaaayp, yes, I read The Midnight Library at the recommendation of one of the folks here on BIC. It was the second book I finished this year. I went into knowing the storyline / plot. Thought provoking, but sci-fi/fantasy is not my typical go-to genre for books.

Re: BIC book club!

Great selection, @jaaayp !  I think The Lost Bookshop is on my library wishlist.  I read Woman in Cabin 10 sometime back.  I'm not sure about Zero Days.  Ruth Ware is kind of hit or miss with me. 📚

 

Re: BIC book club!

Ooh @Titian06 lemme know when you finish the lost Bookshop and lemme know if you like!

 

I 10000% agree. Zero Days was like 🫠🙄

 

I did really like Woman in Cabin 10 except for the fact that she kept saying her head hurt on every single page..... 🫠🫠🫠🤣🤣🤣🤣

Re: BIC book club!

This is Sephora not the public library

Re: BIC book club!

@youareperfect87 This is the Sephora Community. In the thread Besides Beauty.  We are very welcoming here for all things beauty and besides beauty. 

Re: BIC book club!

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer.  About 60 pages in, and it isn't funny or interesting. 

Re: BIC book club!

@greeneyedgirl107, not sure if you're still working on this one, but if you are, hope it's gotten better for you.
