Andrew65 A good choice. 11mo
Kimberlone Have you seen the movie? Better than the book in my opinion! 11mo

My favourite read for #November was the new Josie Silver book, which is published next month. Another brilliant read from this great author. #12Booksof2021 #10thBookof2021

A notable mention for A Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, a great series.

JenReadsAlot I'm looking forward to this one! 11mo
Andrew65 @JenReadsAlot I‘m sure you‘ll enjoy it. Story has stayed with me. 11mo

Barbara Pym was one of those writers I've known of forever but never got around to reading. That changed this year with some encouragement from @Centique @LeahBergen @Cathythoughts and @Ruthiella I loved this book and its sort of sequel Less Than Angels.
@Andrew65

Survivor's Guilt | Michael Wood

The second #12Booksof2021 from this great series. This time for #October. Worried how he‘d follow the events of the previous book, but he wrote it brilliantly. What an ending to the book 😱😳. Now waiting impatiently for the publication of the next book in the series (May). #10thBookof2021

Says something that this book beat Stolen Ones by Angela Marsons, Secret Prey by John Sandford, and Dead Mercy by Noelle Holten which are all great books.

For #October #12in2021 I‘m back to four - All of these were fantastic! #10thbookof2021
Boys Run the Riot is a fantastic manga starring a transgender MC
Measuring up is one of newest fave GN about cooking, culture and friendship
The Fell of Dark is likely the best vampire book I‘ve ever read and will likely revisit every year!
In Deeper Waters I had to buy a physical copy of I loved it so much - pirates, pride and magic

The Twisted Ones | T. Kingfisher
post image

Completely forgot I haven‘t finished this! My #10thBookOf2021 for #October was this twisted horror perfect for the Halloween season. Set in America‘s south, it‘s a atmospheric thriller about being alone in a hoarders house under siege by something not human. Mouse promised her Dad she‘d clear her mean deceased gran‘s house, no one told her it was full of creepy junk & not to go into the woods alone. Made me check the windows😱 #12BooksOf2021

Andrew65 🤣🤣🤣 sounds good horror. 11mo

This is one of those surprises. I discovered this novel by accident, just drawn by the title, and for me, it was darn near perfect. A second chance love affair told by Mike, in brief vignettes, about the love of his life, June. It‘s also a love letter to NYC, to music, to the weather. The dialogue is fantastic, the writing is gorgeous, music fills its pages, and friendships, and small talk and food are celebrated. I couldn‘t have loved it more.

Andrew65 I love it when this happens. 11mo
squirrelbrain You had me at NYC…. Was going to stack but noticed I already had - probably from your original post! 11mo

Loved, loved, LOVED this book!! 😍 I never thought a thriller could be described as special, but this is it. My 4th favorite book all year.
⭐⭐⭐⭐ (Would have been 5, but I always knock a star for language. Otherwise, 5 is not even enough, that's how much I loved it!)
