Avanders @BookNAround @TheDaysGoBy @Ruthiella @Meshell1313 I am *mortified* that I haven‘t ordered your books yet!! So sorry - they will be coming soon!! I switched jobs and spent the past month wrapping up my old job — and then had my first week on the new job… but soon! I promise! ♥️ 1mo
Ruthiella No worries and no rush! ❤️ 1mo

The Dry | Jane Harper
post image

Really, really enjoyed this one! I don‘t read a whole lot of thrillers, but saw this one suggested in a #52bookclub23 group for #setinaustralia and it was a page-turner! Well, whatever an audiobook page-turner is. The characters are so interesting & the pacing is great. Quick without being confusing, even when the flashbacks are mixed it. And the author does a great job of making pretty much everyone seem like a suspect. I loved it!

LeeRHarry Glad you enjoyed it - Jane Harper always does an excellent job of creating a real sense of place too I feel 😊 2mo
Librarybelle Love this series! 2mo

LaraReads @LeeRHarry yes! That‘s a really great description! 2mo
LaraReads @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB @squirrelbrain this was my first Jane Harper, but I started the 2nd book this morning! 2mo
LaraReads @Cinfhen I remember that book being your #lastfirst I think! Glad to hear you liked it even better! Excited to continue the series. 2mo
LaraReads @KarenUK thanks! But now I‘m realizing maybe I should have used it for the #includesafuneral because I just started the 2nd book and could have used it for the Australia prompt 😂 (edited) 2mo
squirrelbrain Oh, I shuffle prompts about quite often, so don‘t worry about that! 2mo
Cinfhen Same @squirrelbrain !!! Go ahead and mix it around @LaraReads 🎉🎉🎉and good memory… Exiles was my #lastfirst 2mo

#lastfirst Two very different books! Finished the year with a light romance, and started with local history.

My last book of 2022 was Inheritance by Dani Shapiro. First book of 2023, The Children‘s Train by Viola Ardone. #lastfirst

BookNAround Dani Shapiro‘s books fascinate me but I still haven‘t read one. I should get on that! 3mo
megnews @BookNAround I‘d wanted to read it for a long time. A local library discussion pushed me to do it now. It was really good. 3mo
