Such a wild ride! It took me a few chapters to understand that this was basically a novel of interconnected stories - where nostalgia and technology collide. Some stories worked better for me than others but honestly I couldn‘t put this book down. I‘m glad I opted to go print. Looking forward to discussing with my #IRLbookclub next week.

JackOBotts I just started this…glad to hear you enjoyed it! 1mo
Cinfhen Hope you enjoy @JackOBotts - I‘m still processing and trying to untangle all the threads of this book. 1mo

Library hold just came in- this is for #IRLbookclub meeting January 3 - curious about this one

AmyG I loved it! Enjoy. 1mo
Cinfhen The feedback I‘m getting from the book club ladies @AmyG is LOTS OF LOVE - however, I think I might need to go print ( I do own a physical copy) because they said it‘s a little confusing 1mo
AmyG Yeah, this might be best actually read. 1mo
Megabooks This is hard to follow on audio even though I enjoyed the multiple narrators. 1mo
Cinfhen I had a feeling print might be better for me @Megabooks @AmyG 1mo

This book is fantastic but my two weeks away from the book has left me forgetting a bunch of relevant information. I feel like I need a little refresher course. #IRLbookclub

I had so much fun Rereading for my #BooksandBrewsClub. I didn't have Go To Book Club at the Brewery Caftan. Mine where bit to sheer too, so I went with something Caftanesque. And yes I had my nails done to match the cover.

It's always a bit scary when a book you love is Book Club pick. But happy to report our group of 18 people of various ages/genre readers loved it. 😊 #irlbookclub

Sparklemn Your Caftanesque shirt is beautiful. Love the colors! 8mo

BarbaraBB I think my parcel couldn‘t be delivered on May 26, did you get note of that? 8mo
Cinfhen No, I didn‘t 😞 @BarbaraBB but hopefully I‘ll have a notification in the next day or two 8mo
BarbaraBB Maybe this track & trace code can be of some help: CL117067358NL-IL-4352407. (edited) 8mo

This book has left me without words. I‘m afraid even a little will give away too much so I‘ll add more in the comments👇. But know that this is way beyond just a horror story. I highly recommend going in blind.
#IRLbookclub

Christyco125 Wow! The last few chapters blew me away. At first, I was like I get what‘s going on with Lauren and then wham! That was totally wrong. In the end this is such a heartbreaking story of survival told in horror story format. But in the end that‘s what abuse really is, a horror. 9mo
TrishB I loved it too- but agree you have to know nothing when you start! 9mo
EKonrad I‘m still obsessed with this book, months after reading it! So good! ❤️ 9mo
Christyco125 @trishb @EKonrad Book club definitely picked a winner. 9mo
tpixie @EKonrad LitsyBookClub just read it. I‘m still thinking about it! 4mo

Wow. It's been a long time since a book had me reading past my bedtime. Once I got started couldn‘t put it down. Yes, you have to suspend belief in a couple places but still has you hooked.

Been on my TBR for awhile but my #irlbookclub is discussing on Saturday, wanted to wait and read just before.

That dress! 💚💚💚💚💚

mom2bugnbee Loved this one! TJR can do no wrong. 10mo

❓❓❓ for my recent #IRLBookClub Discussion.

You're traveling to Shetland: Do you take the 1Hr ✈ from Mainland to Shetland or 12 HR 30 M Overnight ⛴ ?

You are gifted Season in Shetland: Winter w/Up Helly Aa 🔥 Festival, Short Days & Northern Lights? 🌌 Or Summer Simmer Dim & when no darkness happens? 😎

You make friends, they offer to teach a new skill: Fair Isle Knitting 🧶 or Sail the Seas? ⛵

#travelbybook #dreamingofshetland #wyr

LeahBergen The flight, the summer, and the Fair Isle knitting. 😆 12mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig 🚢 I drink Whisky, fall asleep on the sea, and wake up to beautiful views of Shetland and breakfast. I've always dreamed of seeing Northern Lights. 🌌 My knitting skills are limited to one super easy scarf. Would love to learn more. 🧶 12mo

"Outside it was completely silent. There was no sound of wind. In Shetland, when there was no wind it was shocking. People strained their ears and wondered what was missing."

Perfect day for by the fire my #irlbookclub January Read for the Theme of Cold Book by a Warm Fire. I binged read this series about 4 years ago. Looking forward to reread.

Fun Fact it's warmer in Shetland 45 F/7C than Oklahoma today 28F /-2C
