A very entertaining, dark revenge thriller. A female professor gets revenge on men that do not pay for their wrongs. This is a fun twisty story that is very satisfying. I may be a little twisted for saying that but 🤷‍♀️4⭐️

Dear Little Corpses | Nicola Upson

#DearLittleCorpses #NicolaUpson #BookSpinBingo

As the mass evacuation takes place across Britain, thousands of children leave London for the countryside. When a little girl vanishes without a trace, the reality of separation becomes more urgent and more deadly for those who love her. This is the first book of the ten books of Josephine Tey series that I have read. It can be read as a standalone so that is not a problem.

EadieB The setting, characters, and plot were intriguing enough to keep me turning the pages until the very end. If you like Golden Age mystery with a timeless fears of a child‘s abduction, then you will love this one. I would like to thank NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for a copy for an honest review. 6h
rubyslippersreads I‘m also fascinated by books about child evacuees in WWII, so this sounds right up my alley. 5h

A hard-hitting and engrossing novel about the Sri Lankan Civil War in the 80's and 90's. There is a lot of tragedy in this story, but joy too, and interesting descriptions of Sri Lankan culture and food.

This is my third book finished for the #MarvellousMay readathon, and it is also my #DoubleSpin choice for #BookSpinBingo. @Andrew65 @TheAromaofBooks

Andrew65 Sounds great, well done 👏👏👏 7h

This was fun but I may not continue with the series. I do like these kinds of gender bending alternative world type books. And the #audiobook was well done.

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

My May #BookSpin landed on “A book on my actual TBR shelves“ and I chose a book I wanted to read for a while, A Perfect Blank by Rye Duran, a SciFi dystopian YA novel in verse. I would've liked more attention paid to the trans personality of the main character but even so, I enjoyed it. A pick!

Since the above is not in the Litsy database, I tagged instead Sharp Objects: finished a few days ago it got me a #BookSpinBingo.😉

Really cute workplace romance that addresses some heavier issues - depression and single parenthood are front and center. This was my first by this author and I‘ll probably check out some of her other books!

Such a special, thoughtful and powerful book. George shares his story with unflinching grace and an open heart in a way that I hope helps people appreciate and understand the the LGBTQIA+ community. I‘m so thankful he has shared his truth with us. Highly recommend! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks 🏳️‍🌈

Obviously I needed to start another series.... But this was quite great. If you like the murder mystery/noir genre. And my book club is talking about doing an Iceland trip. So I'm back to reading books in this setting. It's trip prep, right?

kspenmoll Have you read Ragnar Jonasson‘s series set in Iceland? Definitely recommend. 1d
vlwelser @kspenmoll I think I read a couple. I need to dive deeper into those. Great recommendation! 1d
TheAromaofBooks I've always thought it would be fun to visit Iceland!! It looks so beautiful!! 19h
vlwelser @TheAromaofBooks it's awesome. And the Northern Lights are stunning. I'm going again because it's great and I'm sick of being stuck at home. 19h
