Stray Bullets | Robert Rotenberg

My first book finished for #NovelNovember! @Andrew65

I love this series, which is a mix of police procedural with courtroom drama, set on the streets of Toronto. Rotenberg captures the diversity of the city well.

I loved this 6th book of the October Daye series, which has Toby working with a full array of magical beings – a shapeshifter, a teleporter, a witch and more, all helping her find a missing teenager who could inadvertently bring about the end of the world.

Daisy is at it again, with an invitation to solve a mystery for a former school acquaintance. When Daisy is one of the party, murder usually happens. Though I pretty much figured out who the killer was, it was a fun listen. I‘m nearing the end of the series - so sad! It‘s been fun following the character development of the main characters. #192025 #2012

This was a reread for me for my Jane Austen book discussion through the library. Loved it the 2nd time around too! Smith chooses to spend a year on the road in Central and South America, reading Austen with book groups. While in each country, she gets to know the culture and the people and immerses herself in Spanish and daily life. Some touching moments, and a great vicarious travelogue. I loved the book groups‘ discussions! #19822022 #2012

Against the background of contemporary #Burundi this is the story of a young mute man who is falsely accused of trying to rape a woman. All of the community turn against him and his fate is in their hands.

It‘s an easy short book but it‘s insightful as well.

BarbaraBB @CBee @Soubhiville @Megabooks @LeahBergen @Reggie @Librarybelle @BarbaraTheBibliophage @readordierachel @Smrloomis @Ruthiella @Jas16 Thank you dear friends 🤍 So far he‘s fine and mostly bored. It‘s his second time. The rest of us tested negative but according to national rules we have to stay in for five days, then test again! 11mo
Cinfhen Oh no!! Poor T!! He looks perfectly fine - could it be a false positive?? Book sounds brutal but definitely worth reading. Sending love ❤️ 11mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I think it‘s very mild. He is fully vaccinated and had COVID last year too. He tested twice this time - both times positive. But he‘s fine indeed fortunately! 🤍 11mo
Cinfhen Hoping the rest of you stay healthy xxxx 11mo
CarolynM Hope you're all ok and stay sane in quarantine 💕 11mo
Cathythoughts Take care ❤️ 11mo
Graywacke That stinks but glad he‘s ok. (My daughter tested positive over xmas break. I finally was able to test Tuesday (ten days later) and can finally go into my office tomorrow.) Cute picture though. 11mo
BarbaraBB @Graywacke Thank you! I hope your daughter is okay now and am glad you‘re able to get back to your office too! 11mo
staci.reads I'm glad it's a mild case. My husband tested positive today, so we're back in covid mode too 😔. It's his first time, unlike the rest of the family, but he's fully vaccinated and so far it's light 🤞Hoping you and the rest of your family dodges it! 11mo
BarbaraBB @staci.reads Thanks! I hope it‘ll stay mild for your husband too 🤍 11mo

This was a much-needed dose of humor after reading Still Alice, a very sad story. I smiled, I chuckled, I laughed as he detailed his stories in a very humorous and light-hearted way. Laughter is often the best medicine.

Crazeedi Sounds really funny! Still Alice was a heartbreaker , a friend gave it to me to read when my sister had Alzheimer's . Before she passed. It was a hard book to read.... 4y
CoffeeNBooks @Crazeedi Oh goodness, I can only imagine how difficult it would have been to read then! 😢 4y
Maria514626 So glad you liked it! 👏👏 4y
