Ways to Hide in Winter
Ways to Hide in Winter | Sarah St. Vincent
After a freak car accident left her widowed, Kathleen has retreated to Pennsylvania's Blue Ridge Mountains, where she works in an isolated corner of the state park. There she meets a stranger who seems to be hiding from the authorities in his native Uzbekistan. As the violent secrets of their pasts unfold, the difference between good and evil proves more complicated than we might think... and a surprising final twist casts Kathleen in a new light altogether.

1. I've got a thing for Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj, even though my fave music is rock/alternative.

2. Fall, without a doubt. Cool, crisp air, pumpkin and apple everything, Halloween, football, and hoodies!

3. Psychological thrillers.

4. Not sure yet. My honey is taking me out to celebrate finishing my first week of radiation 😊.

5. On it!

Spent several hours in the car yesterday. Started this new audiobook and LOVE it. This book seemed to get less hype than others last year but it has really pulled me in. I can't wait to finish it! (I just need 5 hours and 50 minutes of nothing to do)

Tamra It‘s a good one! I sped right thru it. 8mo
TheNerdyProfessor @Tamra I'm so glad to hear it. I don't usually like audiobooks but this one is really well done. I can't wait to learn all of their secrets! 8mo
Tamra @TheNerdyProfessor I read it in print, but I can totally see how audio would be great too! 8mo
Redwritinghood I agree that this one should have gotten more attention. It‘s quite good. 8mo

It seems like the perfect time to read this considering the current weather! This short book deals with the difficult and complex task of forgiveness. People do bad things. Sometimes, they do really bad things. But life has no do-overs. Instead of focusing on how to forgive yourself, the focus here is how you see others after you know the bad things they have done. How do you forgive or ignore the past and move forward today? 4⭐️

Tamra Glad you liked it! 10mo

This slow-burn book starts in a scarcely populated mountain stopover in the off-season when a mysterious man appears. Midway details are revealed about the man and about Kathleen's history with domestic abuse (the topic the author set out to explore, so definitely avoid if triggering for you.) There are some questions raised but not answered by the author that could have disturbing conclusions (nature of evil, etc.) Setting is great, brr.

This was so good. And so underrated. It‘s very hard to put down. What makes someone a good or bad person? How much can you forgive? This one has lots of layers and it‘s very well written. It really should be more popular.

Cinfhen I‘m intrigued ~ thanks for posting and sharing 11mo
Tamra I‘m so glad you liked it too! I thought this was amazing for a debut. 11mo

I‘m “helping” the tween with his probability homework. Ugh, math. Lucky for both of us, he really knows his stuff, so I‘m reading while he works. I need to know just who this stranger is and what he is running away from. I NEED to know!

Exbrarian Probability is fun! 11mo
Tamra This is a compulsive read! Forget math ....... 11mo
JacqMac @Exbrarian Probability isn‘t too bad. But fun isn‘t a word I associate with math. Lol 11mo

I quite enjoyed this, not much happens but the characters and location are interesting and there's a little mystery or two in the background to keep you going.

Something very bad happened in her past and there‘s a feeling that something bad is about to happen. So far it‘s a slow burn that I‘m enjoying.

Don‘t you love starting the new reading year with a winner? This book was definitely a winner. Are people bad just because they have done bad things? There is a lot to ponder after finishing this book...

You guys! I think this may make my 18 favorites of 2018. A ridiculously well-written and well-plotted debut. This will be a book club pick for me, I think. So much to discuss.

Redwritinghood Just picked this up at the library yesterday. Excited to read it. 11mo

One hell of a debut novel! Damaged people with damaging stories that slowly reveal the duality of human nature. There is nothing superficial about the writing, which does justice to the issues of domestic violence and torture in detention. camps. Anxious to read more from St. Vincent in the future!

Desperately want to lay here and finish this novel, but I failed to plan well for meals and have to go to the grocery again. 😭😭😭 Xmas never fails to sneak up.

Reggie That is the worst, just needing that one ingredient you forgot. Ughh. Lol 11mo
Tamra @Reggie I wish it were only 1! 😂 I always need an extra day before holidays and vacation. Lucky for me, my husband is going to be nice and run to the store. 11mo

This is an incredibly nuanced literary thriller that relies on complex human dynamics instead of the usual gimmicks. I absolutely loved it. The characters exist in a gray area between good and bad. They do what they think is right at the time, and suffer the consequences of their misjudgments. They attempt to overcome the chasm between who they want to be and who they really are by seeking redemption and companionship in the unlikeliest places.

Well-ReadNeck Ooooh. Sold. Just put it on hold at my library. 12mo

Good morning from Maine! Yesterday was a balmy 55 degrees, now today it‘s 33 out. Ah, New England winters. And speaking of winter, this book is AMAZING and deserves a lot more attention. It‘s gorgeously written and beautifully sad, and really thought-provoking. By the time I finished, my heart looked like Pinhead‘s face. RELATED: All their books are 40% off on their today. (They didn‘t ask me to say that, I just love them.) ❤️❄️📚

TheLibrarian I‘m really looking forward to this and picked it up because you recommended it! 12mo
