The real tragedy of global warming: you can't just drop a body into a glacier crevasse and assume it will stay hidden anymore. What is this world coming to when a hard working murderer in Iceland can't count on ice to hide a victim? #foodandlit @Texreader @Catsandbooks

The Girl Who Died: A Novel | Ragnar Jonasson
Mehso-so

Atmospheric thriller set in a remote village of 10 in Iceland. Una moves there to teach the town's two children. It's a ghost story--or is it? Una has some mental health issues, which are worsened by the darkness and isolation. Is her host's house haunted? Are the villagers hiding some secret that involves two mysterious children's deaths decades apart? Or are the villagers just average unwelcoming hermits, and Una is unravelling? #foodandlit

I‘m away a lot this month so I had to press the easy button for #FoodAndLit. Luckily I‘ve been wanting to try Icelandic yogurt. It was good. Really thick and not too sweet.

Texreader I‘m doing the same thing! 😃 9h

I Remember You: A Ghost Story | Yrsa Sigurdardottir

3 friends are renovating a house in an isolated town. The last owner mysteriously vanished. Meanwhile a psychiatrist who lost his son is working on a suicide case with links to a school break-in.

I enjoyed the writing style and it was interesting to see the two stories weave together BUT switching between the storylines took me away a bit between the more chilling ghost story scenes, and I wasn‘t satisfied with the end!

A woman who doesn‘t want to accept what society in Iceland in the 60s wants her to be. A man who doesn‘t want to be different just because he‘s gay.

This book has heavy undertones but it still manages to have a tenderness, that‘s delightful. Read for this month‘s #foodandlit

Imagine Spain, but instead of bull-fighting, it's dragon- fighting! Loved how natural the world building felt as it picks up on so many Spanish traditions💃🏻

Only complaint: Would have been quite annoying if I didn't speak Spanish, as there are many sentences and phrases included without translation.

Cheeky contribution to #foodandlit Spain 🇪🇦🍷☀️🍊

The only book by this author in the database, but this is one of his other books

About being seven when your mother dies. About being seven when suddenly a women arrives using your father‘s bedroom door. About being seven and have to always move according to your parents (read: father‘s) whims

Showing that things may not change that much trough the generations. Both set in the present day and when we follow the grandfather and his parents
