Tub reading season is here. 42° C with the humidex today ? we had grade 1 water play day at school and all kids had a BLAST. I dug this out from my pile of books to start, so far not a single person is happy ☹️ #europacollective is my favourite

This was a good one! Loved getting to know the residents of Dalton, Maine. Just ordinary people living ordinary lives. So glad we‘ll be getting more of them in Bowring‘s next book (out Sept 3) Where the Forest Meets the River.

I agree with the Anne Tyler, Mary Lawson and Richard Russo comparisons. I also think if you like Kent Haruf you might really enjoy this.

A quietly beautiful book, full of melancholy but tinged with hope. Not what I was expecting, but it was deeply engaging and emotional. Thanks to #EuropaCollective for putting this one on my radar.

I'm going to put content warnings in the comments under a spoiler alert.

What a great read. To me The Road to Dalton read like a soap opera, in a very good way. I felt a connection with most characters and loved to follow how they interacted. Well written too. I can‘t wait for the sequel, I want to learn more about them, especially about Greg, Nate and Alice!

#SummerSouls Day 13: Not sure if this is the sun or the moon on the cover but perhaps my lemon daiquiri (non alcoholic of course) will make up for it with the #Sunny prompt today. Loving this #EuropaCollective title for the month of June which I am reading alongside Yuzuki‘s “Butter.”

Eggs Perfect pairing 👏🏻☀️🤗 7d

Another fabulous #europacollective read - I just couldn‘t put it down. I loved meeting all of the different characters - it really felt like I knew them all intimately.

@Chelsea.Poole compared it to Anne Tyler and @Tamra felt it was like Mary Lawson and I couldn‘t agree more with both of you!

Excited to hear that there‘s a sequel.

jlhammar Wonderful! I‘ve only just started. Oh, and lovely photo. 1w

#Two4Tuesday

1) I try to prioritize challenge/buddy read books and a great review can change my course but I mostly let my mood be my guide.

2) Stormy Weather for #BookedinTime and The Road to Dalton for #EuropaCollective

@TheSpineView

TheSpineView To mood reading! Thanks for playing 1w

I am reading (combining audio with print) Butter for #CampLitsy24 and Wandering Stars for #CampToB.
The third read is the tagged one, this month‘s #EuropaCollective choice. All seem so good!!

squirrelbrain I‘m loving The Road to Dalton, and Butter seems to be getting better! I have Wandering Stars as an ARC and really ought to get to it soon. 1w
