Ending up with a good crime novel that I got for my #jolabokaflodswap and started with one I read for #newyearwhodis2021

Just over 200 pages in, and I am LOVING this book!! The #ToBshortlist is 🔥🔥 for me this year.

So far it isn‘t super magical realism-y @Cinfhen but I will reserve judgment until the end.

Cinfhen Oh good to know!! I was very anxious about this one because of the length & the magical realism aspect 3w
ReadingEnvy I'm just hitting part 2! 3w
squirrelbrain Glad you‘re enjoying it Meg! 3w

jlhammar Yay! Great to hear. Just got this book. Loved A Tale for the Time Being so have high hopes! 3w
Ruthiella Wonderful to hear that! I am hoping to go into this one not expecting to “get” everything but to just enjoy the ride! 3w
Megabooks @Amiable great gift! I hope you enjoy it! 3w
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ll keep you in the loop of course. It‘s much more reality grounded than say oyoyemi‘s or Kelly link‘s stuff. 👍🏻 3w
Megabooks @ReadingEnvy 👍🏻👍🏻 3w
Megabooks @squirrelbrain same! You‘re right that it has a lot of parts, but I feel like I‘m listening to a pleasantly funky symphony. 3w
Megabooks @AmyG I‘m definitely enjoying it! 3w
Megabooks @BarbaraBB probably tomorrow! I‘ll tag you. 👍🏻 3w
Megabooks @Suet624 it was a pleasant surprise! 3w
Megabooks @jlhammar I want to go back and read that now. 👍🏻👍🏻 3w
Megabooks @Ruthiella kind of like I said to Helen, it‘s a funky symphony of a book. A lot of layers but definitely understandable. Just enjoying the ride is a great idea!! 3w
Ruthiella @Megabooks Funky symphony sounds great! 👍 3w

Another confession I have for you all is when I opened everything I was a bit drunk and can't remember who sent me what! I'll tag who I can remember (don't be made at me if I have missed anyone please let me know. I hope you all had a great Christmas.

12/28/86 - a day chosen at random and a book written about the events that happened on this ordinary day. My one addendum is it was selection of events that happened on this day, not a comprehensive view of the day. It was a mix of great writing, observation, and a little philosophy at the end. Turns out no day is ordinary. The stories will appeal most to fans of true crime. I couldn‘t put it down and it made me think a lot. #jolabokaflodswap

Thank you so much, Christine, for my wonderful #JolabokaflodSwap gifts! I‘m sorry I fell asleep before posting last night (I‘m blaming a chocolate coma) but I‘ve already read half of this gorgeous book. Merry Christmas, my friend! 💕

Thank you @Texreader for the book!! I've seen this book before but never grabbed it, so I'm very excited to read it! I love the chocolate Santa and I'm also very excited to try the peppermint fudge! Thank you so much!
Merry Christmas and Happy #jolabokaflodswap ☃️🍫📖
