omg, I love Beauvoir and Gamache! I was not expecting much from this book, a typical cozy mystery, with the added benefit of being in the much loved Eastern townships, but, wow, this book was above and beyond! It's totally a cosy mystery, but also so much more. Hard to explain, but more interesting, more "deep". I am going to enjoy reading more of this series (I hope!). #cosymystery

Husband and I always wanted to spend one Christmas with his family in Norway but it never worked out. But still I wish I could go somewhere in Norway to see the northern lights.

I read another Det. Gamache book out of order so I decided to start with book 1. It didn‘t disappoint. Here, a complex plot comes together after tiny details are peppered thruout. An artist is killed by an arrow in a small Canadian town, and guilt centers early on a local family. Meanwhile Gamache is trying to mentor an infuriating new recruit. Expect crazy surprises. #wintergames #tmskellington #tbrread

A vivid and unflinching, well written account of the battle for the ridge. It‘s difficult to understand even while reading the words, what these brave young 🇨🇦 men faced before, during and after that chilly day in April 1917 so many years ago. They fought with the hope that it would truly be the war to end all wars — I wish that had turned out to be true. This was a powerful read and I highly recommend it!

😊😂 the author wouldn't use the outhouse because of jinn. This is part of the conversation that followed with her children of about 5 to 8.

I really wanted this book to be a stellar read. And while it was good, I don‘t think it was great. Part of its problem is that Hui really doesn‘t give us much about the restaurants across Canada that she visits. Where this book is great is when Hui is telling her father‘s story. The book isn‘t bad but parts of it could use more meat as it were. Read Nov 8-9 & rated it 3.5 ⭐️

MidnightBookGirl I didn't even think about Teleportation, that would be very useful! 1w
Mollyanna @MidnightBookGirl no more wasted time getting to the destination! (edited) 1w
ImperfectCJ Teleportation would be a great one (I could visit my sister across the country any time I wanted!), so long as it included the clothes I was wearing and maybe a carry-on bag. 1w
Mollyanna @ImperfectCJ In my view anything on you or in your hand would travel along. 1w

This is about trauma and the long road of healing. It's not a fast read, despite its page count (about 220 pages). The narrative is rich, intense, and because it deals with racism and Canada's residential schools, often brutal. This is the kind of book you read slowly, sitting with what's happening and what the implications will be for the character's life. This was my first time reading Wagamese's work, and it won't be my last. #nativeauthors

Suet624 Every time I see this author‘s name come up I get mad at myself for not reading his work yet. 1w
BookNAround This was really a magnificent read, wasn‘t it? 1w
lovelybookshelf @Suet624 I definitely wish I'd read him earlier! 1w
lovelybookshelf @BookNAround It truly was. And I know nothing about hockey and am not into sports, but even though sections had me captivated. 1w

It took me a MONTH to finish this book - couldn‘t concentrate long enough to read! But it was worth reading. I enjoyed visiting my friends in Three Pines and learning a little more about a couple of residents. The story is slightly based on true events. I was fascinated.
