Banksy is always needing and looking for attention. My favorite time of the has become our bedtime when he wants to snuggle while I'm reading.

A sick little book for sure, but I have to remember not to trust the blurbs of thrillers anymore. I probably read too much and I'm just not easy to thrill anymore. ☹️

Nate walked the artwork over to a blank spot on the wall that he‘d prepared for it. As he did, he knew one thing for sure. Sam would have loved it.

I‘m surprised I‘m the first one to review this - it came out in 2019! Set in #Australia, this is a dual timeline double mystery, with similar situations and some trigger warnings (see below). Abby finds an injured teen in the bushlands, which triggers some horrific memories for her. This is the stage for the slow reveal of the past and present, involving abduction, violence, and what it means to forgive. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Librarybelle ⬆️⬆️⬆️ I listened to this and had some trouble in the beginning identifying which storyline was being discussed - I think I would have followed along a lot better with print. It‘s a slow burn novel, with also a bit of romance. I liked it and would read more by Romer. TW: child abduction, violence towards children, abuse 2mo
Librarybelle It‘s terrible to say this is my first for #ReadingOceania2024 ! @BarbaraBB 2mo
Librarybelle #BBRC #Adult #OnceBittenTwiceShy - so many of these characters are grappling with their past and are afraid of falling into the same patterns, making the same mistakes, or even reliving the same nightmares. @LibrarianRyan 2mo

BarbaraBB I only read one too so far 😱 2mo
Librarybelle @BarbaraBB I know we have a lot of great books to choose from, thanks to the participants! 2mo
LibrarianRyan Sounds interesting. I bet it had an embargo by Audible/Amazon because I have never heard of it, but it sounds interesting. 2mo
Librarybelle @LibrarianRyan That could be! 2mo

While I wished this one had a bit more thriller aspects, I did enjoy the view of a con from the con artist‘s perspective. #IgnoranceIsBliss when the female MC is on the case, hiding her true intentions from her marks. There were a couple of twists that I did suspect and others I did not. Overall, a quick, fun read. #BBRC #Adult

LibrarianRyan Nice. I know lots of people who have liked this book. 2mo
Librarybelle @LibrarianRyan It was a good distraction read. 2mo

Oomph…I can see why this book has a low rating on Litsy! I was so tempted to increase the listening speed just to get through the book at times. It has a good premise - friends quarantining together, and said friends have lots of issues. Not very likable characters, and that did not bother me. But, the last part of the book was like reading something completely different and just randomly added.

Using this for #BBRC #Adult #RainOnMyParade

BarbaraBB I had been looking forward to it but was so disappointed! 3mo
Librarybelle @BarbaraBB Yes! Good idea but so disappointing! 3mo
RaeLovesToRead I agree. Started well then I dunno, maybe Schteyngart was drunk or got the cat to finish it or something 3mo

Librarybelle @RaeLovesToRead 😂 I love the idea of the cat writing a section! 3mo
Ruthiella This book drove me crazy! 😝 3mo
LibrarianRyan I hate when that happens. I went through 3 audio books in one trip because I just could not do it anymore. 2mo
Librarybelle @LibrarianRyan It‘s definitely not fun! 2mo

“As regards the medical evidence, I think—er—that I made one or two fantastic suggestions.”
“Then,” said Poirot, “having placed my solution before you, I have the honour to retire from the case. . . .”
