All He Has Left | Chad Zunker
post image
Pickpick

“All He Has Left” is a thrilling, quick read. I was intrigued by the premise: Jake Slater‘s wife dies in a hit-and-run accident, but a year later, another family member is murdered and another one is kidnapped, so was it really an “accident” after all? The pacing of this book is quick: it is full of action and devoid of slow parts that detract from the story. It was an easy and fun afternoon read. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC.

Time After Time: A Novel | Lisa Grunwald
post image

I was thinking tonight about how no one in the world has ever read the exact same list of books as you have. Your “read” pile is uniquely yours. It‘s the set of books that has specifically shaped you — only you. Your “read” pile is as unique as your fingerprint. It‘s a list of characters, titles, authors, and quotes that have built who you are. It‘s a beautiful thing, isn‘t it?

There is no bigger fan of the library than I, and so I really wanted to love this book. But it was just missing … something. I did want to read on to discover who the thief was, but this book was missing the magic of so many books that take place in libraries.

kspenmoll I never finished it; lost interest! 6mo

Anxious People: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

1. Clare Mackintosh! I love her books. Really, I‘d love a meeting with her, Ruth Ware, and Lisa Jewell. The big three!

2. “Anxious People” by Fredrik Backman is my most recommended book of the past year.

3. Donuts! 🍩

The Favorite Child | Cathryn Grant
post image
Pickpick

Prior to this novel, I had never read a book by Cathryn Grant before. I was intrigued by the title, cover, and premise. A little “Rosemary‘s Baby,” a little “Gaslight,” and a lot of family dysfunction are the hallmarks of this suspenseful novel. I kept guessing and second guessing myself throughout: who was telling the truth? Did we have a reliable narrator? Who is sane and who isn‘t? Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC.

The Murder Rule | Dervla McTiernan
post image
Mehso-so

You have to decide if you‘re willing to suspend some belief to just read a story or not. I think if you know anything about the law, you should skip this one. I don‘t really (unless a true crime fan counts!), but there were a lot of things regarding the law school, courtroom, and legal processes that seemed a but farfetched, even to me. …

Full review at Goodreads (Anna Kraft).

Thank you to the publisher and Goodreads for the ARC!

This is the sequel to Jewell‘s “The Family Upstairs.” I am sometimes wary of sequels, but this one definitely did not disappoint! This continues the stories of the Lamb and Thomsen children, who are still suffering the effects of their traumatic childhoods. This reveals how far they are willing to go to keep secrets buried. Make sure you read “The Family Upstairs” first!

Thank you to Goodreads and the publisher (and Lisa Jewell!) for the ARC!

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
post image

Can Fredrik Backman do no wrong?!

I ADORE his books. I‘ve read “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She‘s Sorry,” “Britt-Marie was Here,” “Beartown,” “Us Against You,” “Anxious People,” and now “A Man Called Ove.” He just writes with such a lovely, funny, gut wrenching style. If you are just looking for a *good* book, get one of these.

My favorite is “Anxious People.”

IuliaC I totally agree, great author! I loved "Anxious People" too! 9mo

I would have to say Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth from “Persuasion.” That letter he writes her — “I am half agony, half hope” — swoon!

Fun fact: at my wedding reception, instead of being numbered, my tables were labeled with the names of famous literary couples! So guests sat at the Elizabeth and Darcy table, the Scarlett and Rhett table, etc. ❤️

When I was a child, I read the Great Illustrated Classics (remember those?) version of “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” and I‘ve wanted to go to Iceland ever since!

DrexEdit My family had a ton of Classics Illustrated comics when I was young. I loved them. I just posted about them the other day, because I am pretty sure for most “classic“ literature I only have the comic version of in my head! 😄 Have I “read“ the Count of Monte Cristo? Um. . . Yes!? 😂 I have not read Journey to the Center of the Earth, comic book or otherwise, but Iceland would be a very cool place to visit! 12mo

I judge books by their covers 100000%! I don‘t know how not to. Haha. When there are a million books at the library, sometimes covers are the easiest way to get drawn in. Or if I‘m reading a recommended books list, my eyes get drawn to covers of books that look intriguing. That‘s how I found my current read!

You know those books where you finish and you‘re just sad because you want to stay with the characters, the setting, the story? This was one of those for me! I stumbled upon it in my local library while looking for books by an author with same last name, and I am so glad I did! It was just lovely.

There are a lot of great-looking books coming out this year, but a few I‘m really excited about are “The Paris Apartment” by Lucy Foley, “The Book of Cold Cases” by Simone St. James, and “The Long Weekend” by Gilly MacMillan.

Here‘s what I can tell you: even if you are not a foster parent, this book will teach you, convict you, and inspire you to better love everyone in your life, especially those who are hard to love. It‘ll make you a better human. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In the fall of 2020, I was getting things done: reading books, engaging with fellow readers on Litsy, doing lots of writing on my website. Then I got pregnant with my second child and was sick and then exhausted and then surviving. But now that my little guy is 6 months old, I finally feel just a little bit on top of things again, including my TBR pile and my writing plans. I‘m so happy to be back on Litsy! 📚❤️

HappilyEverKrafter @CBee I‘ve only done one other round, but I wrote in the books, using a pen and a highlighter.

CBee @HappilyEverKrafter okay cool! I am okay with writing in them, or I might use post its (smaller ones so as not to obscure anything). But, I‘m not sure yet! I‘ll write in green pen, most likely. @Sace feel free to take black! 2y

This is a good question for this book because it‘s three stories in one. One takes place in Brighton, England; another in Louisiana; and the third in Atlanta. I live outside Atlanta, so I‘ve been there, but I‘ve never been to Brighton or Louisiana, and I‘d love to see both!
