The Tenant | Katrine Engberg
Pickpick

I was lucky enough to win this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. It‘s an advance copy that won‘t hit the shelves until 1/14/20.

What a good read! I had a hard time putting it down! It‘s very suspenseful, and keeps you guessing until the end. This book contains stories within stories.

English isn‘t the authors first language, so the book was translated. That often comes with challenges, which is why I rated this book with a 4 instead of a 5.

Comfort and Joy | Kristin Hannah
Mehso-so

I give this book a solid 3.5. It is pretty much what I expected. A nice little love story with a bit of Christmas magic mixed in.

I‘m glad I read it. We can all use a little bit of magic during the holiday season.

This book is well written. I found parts of it interesting. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because I found extremely intricate. I had to keep notes to remember characters, and had to refer to my notes often. There were many terms that were foreign to me that were eventually explained, much later in the story. I found myself having to read chapters more than once to try to understand what was going on. I finished it, but struggled to do so.

Review of The Seven Experiments

This was a good, fast read that was very hard to put down at times. Although it is fiction, it really got me thinking about “mind over matter”. There is so much in our lives that is controlled by our emotions.

This book is a story of good vs. evil. Sometimes good wins out. Does it this time? You‘ll have to read it to find out.

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
Pickpick

What an excellent book! How can a book about a grumpy old man make you happy, and laugh out loud at times? Read it, and find out.

It‘s about life, death, and everything in between. It touches on many of today‘s issues, experienced through the eyes of Ove. This is definitely one of my favorite books this year!

I‘d like to talk about this book. What did it mean to you? I have some ideas..... were there really two? Molly and Mol? Was she delusional from being exhausted? Was she psychotic? At times, I thought maybe she had been in an accident and was in a coma and was dreaming. I was disappointed with the end, because it did not answer my questions. What do you think?

Something for us all to think about and live by: “You will never be as young or beautiful as you are today. Be bold. Seize the life that was meant to be yours. Make it magnificent.“

I had to bail at chapter 16. I was starting to get angry. I am not a bad person, and I felt Stephanie was entitled to the assistance she received. But so many aren‘t..........I apologize, but i felt I had to give my perspective.

How very true!! I‘m liking this book a lot so far. I belong to “just the right book”. I wasn‘t thrilled with this pick at doesn‘t, as I do not read many fantasy novels. This one is proving me wrong.

I am loving this book! I don‘t want it to end. I‘m 3/4 of the way through, I am just realizing that I do not know the Male main characters real name. One of my favorite quotes so far is “ My poker face is terrible, and I lose every hand”. Wrong hobby to have if you don‘t have a good poker face! Maybe it will get him in the end.......

Kaylamburson It took me so long to realize I didn't know the guys name! 5mo
Cathyloves2read Why do you think that is that we never learned his real name? (edited) 5mo
