I liked All the Light…but didn‘t love.
This is on another level entirely for me and I absolutely loved it. (Started yesterday and just finished and I worked 7-6 today, couldn‘t put it down).
Epic, wonderful story telling.

MicheleinPhilly 7-6 is obnoxious! 6d
KarenUK I have no idea how you read this in two days!!! It‘s so good though…. But took me a week! 6d
GondorGirl I started this book and was very unimpressed... then I almost DNFed it... then I somehow couldn't put it down... and then it was a five star read. I read it months ago and still find myself thinking about the ending. 6d

Jas16 I felt the same about both All the Light and about this book. 6d
SamAnne I highly recommend his book of short stories Memory Wall. Very different stories….the title story is phenomenal with a sci fi bent. 6d
Cathythoughts Great review! I bailed on All the Light…I might try this one after your review 👍🏻♥️ 5d
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly it‘s horrendous run up to Christmas 5d
TrishB @KarenUK I wanted to finish on Sunday- got to 450 pages and has to sleep. So only has 150ish to finish last night. Yes, so good. 5d
TrishB @GondorGirl yes, I thought a very good ending! 5d
TrishB @Jas16 👍🏻 5d
TrishB @SamAnne I‘ll keep my eye out. 5d
TrishB @Cathythoughts I thought they were very different. This one had David Mitchell vibes to me- but slightly easier! 5d
Addison_Reads I loved this one too. The way all the storylines came together was pure perfection. 5d
SamAnne I started this one months ago but had too many chunksters going at once. I want to read this one without other reading distractions. I love the premise. And all of Doerr‘s writing. 5d
TrishB @Addison_Reads yes agreed 👍🏻 5d
TrishB @SamAnne hope you love when you get to it! 5d

Good introduction to a new detective series 👍🏻 liked the character build ups and the twists and turns. Will definitely try the second.

Cinfhen Really? Another series!!??! I wanted to read this but not sure I want to start a new series🤪 1w
TrishB @Cinfhen I did wonder why it was so popular all of a sudden with people that don‘t usually read series! And it is very obviously start of new series story. 1w
Oryx I'm reading this at the moment. Not too far in but I like it ok. I hadn't realized it was a series when I started it (as her other books aren't). 1w
TrishB @Oryx when I get it on kindle it had pre- order the next one underneath. Obviously as it‘s the first it doesn‘t affect the storyline anyway. 1w

Work and this never ending (non covid!) cough have totally disrupted the reading vibe!

The blurb for this says funny….it‘s not, it‘s dark and sad and brought me to tears a couple of times and definitely didn‘t make me laugh.
It was a challenging read from a feminist perspective, I challenge you to find anything positive!
Jeez, I was expecting a fun read about friendships.
Thought provoking.

DGRachel I was tricked by one of those “funny” books earlier this year. I know humor is subjective, but sometimes you just have to wonder about the person who made that claim. 2w
Cupcake12 I just brought this for my kindle. Love all her previous books. Definitely intrigued now! Xx 2w

Finished Long Walk, which was fascinating.
Loved Hidden Scars, still a brilliant series.
Loved Blackwater Lightship.
Thought Just Like Home a bit meh and predictable.
Started The Magician but have had a cough/cold this week (not covid!) and was a bit too deep for cold brain- will come back to.
Started Girl Friends this morning. Not far enough in for an opinion.

squirrelbrain Oh no, sorry to hear you‘re feeling rough. Hope you feel better soon. 2w

A fascinating, detailed book about Mandela‘s struggle for freedom- both personal and political.
I didn‘t know much of his life pre-release from jail really. This helped fill in those gaps.
A man that sacrificed everything (including any chance of a normal family life) to try and make things better for millions of others.

Amiable @smrloomis I thought maybe this meant a week where you can put on comfy pants and lounge on the couch with books! Because if that was the case then I wanted a pants reading week as well. 😀 (edited) 3w
Aimeesue @Amiable I thought the same. Those definitions could definitely overlap! 😄 3w

I really enjoyed this, deals with many difficult themes but still manages to be upbeat, make you smile and appreciate love between family and friends.

I loved this ♥️ the writing is beautiful, the descriptions of life, people etc and the MCs set against a quietly developing, dreadful story.

squirrelbrain Looking forward to this one! 1mo
TrishB @squirrelbrain I really enjoyed it 😁 1mo
Oryx I'm going to pick this up soon. Going to see her speak in a few weeks. I have accidentally bought two copies, because I forgot that I had ordered a book and ticket together 1mo

TrishB @Oryx are you going to the one in Manchester? I didn‘t get a ticket because I didn‘t want to get the train home on my own and no one else was free! I bet she‘s great 😁 1mo

The Salt Path- good read but bonkers idea!
Hidden Pictures- good thriller.
The Flowers Girls (I forgot to review- thanks @jenniferw88 ) disturbing thriller.
Reading The Marriage Portrait now and loving it.

First suggestions for winter #booked2023
Trilogy - Dispel Illusion, last one I need to get to
The Future- reproductive rights
The Quiet- quiet YA
Home Stretch- stretch
Pandemic- The Sentence- this is the only one I‘d have to buy but I have gift vouchers from my birthday 😁 I also have The Pull of the Stars as a potential
Daisy- proper noun.
Probably look nothing like this. More later today.

squirrelbrain I loved The Sentence, and it would be worth buying a hard copy as there are book lists…! 😁 1mo

In remembrance.
My friends daughter Mollie, funny, engaging, thoughtful and beautiful.
Forever in our hearts.
I don‘t like to compare loss, but watching my friend cope with this has been heart wrenching. Some days it‘s like small ripples, some days it‘s a tsunami.
Look after each other ❤️

This was like a horror story for me: outdoors, insects, camping, walking, wet clothes, dirty hair, weather, no food, no home.
I‘ll be having nightmares. I think they were bonkers and nothing would make me do this.

Should finish Hidden Pictures today, barring any other family drama!
The others are looking at me this week.
Been a mare of a weekend so far. Son turned up to move into his new house yesterday and squatters had moved in since Tuesday….it‘s been awful. I won‘t bore you all with the details as it‘s waaaay too long 😢

squirrelbrain OMG! That sounds like an absolute nightmare Trish. Hope you manage to get it all sorted soon. 😘 1mo
Cinfhen Oh Gd!!! So awful!! I know that it‘s VERY difficult to get any legal action when it comes to squatters. I hope you‘re able to get this issue resolved quickly. 1mo
