The Dry | Jane Harper
post image

Really, really enjoyed this one! I don‘t read a whole lot of thrillers, but saw this one suggested in a #52bookclub23 group for #setinaustralia and it was a page-turner! Well, whatever an audiobook page-turner is. The characters are so interesting & the pacing is great. Quick without being confusing, even when the flashbacks are mixed it. And the author does a great job of making pretty much everyone seem like a suspect. I loved it!

LeeRHarry Glad you enjoyed it - Jane Harper always does an excellent job of creating a real sense of place too I feel 😊 2w

LaraReads @KarenUK thanks! But now I‘m realizing maybe I should have used it for the #includesafuneral because I just started the 2nd book and could have used it for the Australia prompt 😂 (edited) 2w

#lastfirst Two very different books! Finished the year with a light romance, and started with local history.

My last book of 2022 was Inheritance by Dani Shapiro. First book of 2023, The Children‘s Train by Viola Ardone. #lastfirst

BookNAround Dani Shapiro‘s books fascinate me but I still haven‘t read one. I should get on that! 3w
megnews @BookNAround I‘d wanted to read it for a long time. A local library discussion pushed me to do it now. It was really good. 3w

These Precious Days | Ann Patchett
post image

My last book of 2022 was We Are The Light by Matthew Quick. This started out just ok for me but ended on a high note as it unraveled. My first read of 2023 is the tagged These Precious Days by Ann Patchett from my #AuldLangSpine partner and host of #lastfirst @BookNAround - I‘ve seen it on many posts so it almost feels like a Buddy read☺️

BookNAround I hope you enjoy it! 3w
