Jurek Walter is thought to be back. Saga & Joona thought that he died when Saga shot him 3 times but the most vicious killer has returned & has captured Saga‘s father and sister and buried them alive. It is the 7th installment is the series by Lars Kepler and the best so far. All these books are very dark and violent but keep you on the edge until the very end. This one has a surprise ending and a cliffhanger and is no different than the others.

Andrew65 I enjoyed this one too. 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 I guess there will be another as we need to find out about The Beaver. 2y

Andrew65 Yes but looks like one written every two years so may have to wait until 2022. 😔 (edited) 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 It will be 2022 before you know it! 2y
Andrew65 @EadieB It will and hopefully we‘ll be the other side of all this mess! 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 It better be over by then or we will all be bananas 🍌 for sure! 2y

#Lazarus #LarsKepler #7

I just received our read for July #NordicNoir this book 7 from #NetGalley. They must be looking for readers as there was no waiting for authorization. It was marked “Ready to Read.” It downloaded automatically to my kindle. It‘s not published until December 1, 2020.

Tove_Reads I saw it there too, but since I read in the original language I didn‘t download it. I think it was published in March in the UK. 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads The hardcover was published in US in March too but I think this is the paperback that's coming out in December. My library doesn't have a copy so I would have had to wait as it is so expensive now. (edited) 2y
Tove_Reads @EadieB Really good deal, since you‘ll review it anyway! I plan on reading it this coming week 2y

Andrew65 In the U.K. it was published in March with the paperback due out next year. I really need to look into Net Galley. @Tove_Reads 2y
Tove_Reads @andrew65 I just got my first three books from there! 😍 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes you should join except I find if I sign up for too many then it puts pressure on me to finish them on time especially with all the books we read together. Also what are our next group reads on LibraryThing as I am working on my schedule for July. 2y
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s what I need to ask people about as difficult for some to get hold of books due to lockdown. Just joined a two month free trial of Scribd so will look to see what I can access on this. Will post over next 24 hours. Thanks for the information on NetGalley, will do sone exploring when get to summer break. 3 weeks to go and need it as worked everyday for over 4 months now and had to hold people‘s community & everyone together. (edited) 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads What books are you reading? I'm reading Ann Cleeves The Darkest Evening, Ruth Ware One by One and Rachel Joyce Miss Benson's Beetle and now Lazarus. 2y
Tove_Reads @EadieB On NetGalley or otherwise? I finished all three on NG, and the ones I want are not taking requests, so catching up on many series atm. 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads Yes, I meant on NetGalley. You finish the 3 NetGalley books already? Wow! That was fast. 2y
Tove_Reads Yeah, they were all just so great that I read them immediately! Not allowed to review one of them yet. Still trying to figure out how it works, but getting a hang of it, I guess. I hope I could get the Follett prequel. 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 I think most libraries are open for curbside delivery in the US. Yes look into NetGalley on your well-needed holiday. Your working too hard these days! 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads I signed for Follett prequel too but haven't heard yet. We should get approved as we read most of his books. Have you reviewed them on Goodreads as they may check there to see how many you have read? I feel I get approved a lot of times if I read a lot of the author's books. 2y
Tove_Reads “The publisher May grant wishes at any time, so check your dashboard” actually mean? Have they already picked reviewers and they might choose some more, are they checking how many are interested or what‘s the deal? 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads You will get a email if you are approved. (edited) 2y
Tove_Reads But, first it says request now and then it says what I wrote above. Just wondering how it‘s working 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads Mine says “Your request is pending“ as I signed up awhile ago. 2y
Andrew65 @EadieB Most definitely, saw a recent survey saying 25% of Headteachers / Principals thinking of quitting! Ridiculous demands through this crisis. 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 That's not good! Some talk about the kids having to wear masks in the hallways and on the buses but not in classrooms but schools in other areas are saying something different. My daughter is concerned about her autistic 12 year old daughter as she will not wear a mask so I think my daughter is going to homeschool her when they move in with us sometime in July. 2y
amywithbooks Oh i am jealous! Looking forward to this one!! 2y
EadieB @avgeyer Try to join NetGalley.com 2y
Andrew65 @EadieB Masks not widely used in U.K. Needed now on transport, in hospitals and enclosed spaces where can‘t maintain social distancing. Children and staff told not needed in schools 🤷‍♂️ We have provided for staff and also got hold of visor for each member of staff. Voluntary for staff if want to wear them, and optional for children depending on parental preferences. Year 6 back last week only had 8/48 turn in Y1 next week expecting 12/50. 2y
Andrew65 @EadieB Masks and full PPE worm when treating first aid or where deliberately going within two metres. Limited it to 8 per class and desks two metres apart. Difficult for autistic children, at moment our children with autism not attending but it depends on the child. Home schooling whilst it settles down in my opinion a good idea and review the situation in 6 months. Very much depends what happens. 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 Wow! Very low percentage returning. I guess they are waiting for September. Homeschool for awhile but I think autistic children need to be social. She was going to stay with her dad in Virginia as she now has lots of friends where she is going in Virginia but as soon as my daughter saw that they were requiring masks, my daughter said that she is coming to Pennsylvania with her. Her ex-husband was not too happy with the change of plans 2y
Crazeedi @EadieB I have Mrs Bensons beetle and one by one on kindle. I'm going to download this book from net galley. @Andrew65 I have gotten some great books from Net Galley and Edelweiss 2y
Tove_Reads I‘m now 60% done with this book. Enjoying it! 2y
Tove_Reads @EadieB Check out the Finnish author Max Seeck. Has one book on NG, pub date in November 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads It does look good. I requested and I also requested Lisa Jewell's new book, 2y
Tove_Reads @EadieB Haven‘t read that one myself, need to get it from the library. Has another one of his on the nightstand. It‘s from the series that is mostly set in Croatia. 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads What series is set in Croatia? 2y
Tove_Reads @eadieb His series, but the books haven‘t been translated 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads I found it on goodreads (Daniel Kuisma #1) but l don't think they are translated yet. 2y
Tove_Reads @EadieB Nope. I think the one on NG is the first that‘s been translated. 2y
Tove_Reads @EadieB says that the book is not currently available to request for Lisa Jewell 2y
EadieB @Tove_Reads Looks like a US version. Try your library for that one as the first edition is coming out on August 6 2020. 2y
Andrew65 @Crazeedi @EadieB @Tove_Reads I‘ve now joined up. 2y
Tove_Reads @Andrew65 Awesome! I‘ve enjoyed it this far! 2y
EadieB @Andrew65 Good news! 2y
Crazeedi @Andrew65 that's terrific, let me say you are going to be overwhelmed with ARCs you want to read!! 2y

EadieB This is the 6th book in the series. Enjoyed the plot and thought the premise was clever. Length of book is not necessary as story could be told in shorter version and not dragged out so much. Strengths - interesting plots and characters. Weakness - too much explicit sex and violent, graphic killings. I don't like that Joona is in prison and then they let him out to do investigations. That doesn't work for me. Doesn't feel like a real concept. 2y

Today is such a beautiful day. Too hot for my liking but the house is fresh and its kinda perfect for reading. Days like this make it really hard to handle having to stay home. Things I never did before, suddenly I really feel like doing now. Started the sixth book in the Joona Linna series from Lars Kepler. Any fans of crime books?

Stockholm. This is the best book of series so far. Jurek Walter has been dead for over 7 years but he shows up with hypothermia. DI Joona Linda investigates and opens a kidnap cold case from years ago. Saga volunteers to go in isolation with Walter to see what she can learn. A creepy thriller with a very surprise ending. Need to read the next book soon! Highly recommend to those who love Mystery Thrillers and #NordicNoir.

Crazeedi I'm so far behind! Need to get busy 3y

Mysterious murder at wayward girls‘ home. One girl is dead, another is missing. Joona Linna must now discover who did this. The chapters are short so reading isn‘t a chore and the plot pace is steady. Needs some editing as book is too long. We learn more about Linna‘s past life with his wife and daughter. Recommend for those who like psychological thrillers Looking forward to book 4.

Tove_Reads Steadily getting better and better, which is really promising! 3y
EadieB @Tove_Reads Yes, That is a good thing! 3y
Butterfinger I hate that I will miss the discussion this week. I went to pull it out last night, but must not have ordered it with the others. 3y

Tove_Reads @Butterfinger No worries, whenever you‘re ready. Andrew is behind, so he‘ll take part later, I believe. 3y
EadieB @Butterfinger Try the library. Maybe they have a copy. 3y
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads I will, I was part way through book 2 when ebook loan ended and someone had reserved it. Grrrrr. Still got two weeks to wait. @Butterfinger @EadieB @Tove_Reads 3y
Butterfinger I have to order most of my books through the interlibrary system and I must have overlooked the title when I was ordering @EadieB . It should be here by Wednesday. 3y
EadieB @Butterfinger That's pretty quick! Can't wait to hear what you think about this book! 3y
Crazeedi Great review, looking forward to getting to this 3y
EadieB @Crazeedi Thanks! 3y
