I haven't fallen in love with a character from a book in a long while, but I have now. Miss Molly Gray is such a delight. I gave the book 4 1/2 ⭐ for the simple reason, at the end, Prose added a few pages, I wish she hadn't. The book, to me, would have been a 5⭐. Pick up this book January 4, 2022.

Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and Prose for the Kindle Version of the book.

Oh I love these books so much and this one was incredibly powerful and also quite heartbreaking. As a huge fan of Jane Eyre, I always found myself drawn to Charlottte but it was Emily who stole this one for me. Oh the journey she goes on and how you wish she didnt have to. The plot was steady but you know it was building to a cleverly constructed climax. There's a couple of brilliant twists along the way that just add to the story #Netgalley 5*

This book is ridiculously fun. A reality show heads to an island in Washington state. Think Bachelor, not Survivor. And things begin to go very wrong.

These are very good. They're new translations of older stories by this author (whom I had never actually heard of). I think they pulled me in with the cover. Well written short stories are kind of magical imo.

EvieBee These sound wonderful! I‘ve only read The Makioka Sisters and loved it. The film is also great. 3d

Mara flees her home after a devastating loss and ends up in an out-of-season seaside town. ( see spoiler and TW below)

This is a debut novel that I received on #netgalley. It‘s a soft pick for me. Clearly, with the subject matter, it was going to be a melancholy novel but there was also something missing in the writing that I just can‘t put my finger on. It‘s quite a short book and perhaps just needed a bit more space to be something more.

While I enjoyed the folklore aspect of this the police procedural side was unrealistic and let the book down. The murder, mystery, folklore aspects were great on their own there was no need for the additional layer of intrigue added to the story, at least not for this reader.

Well, this book is most definitely a thriller. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen. I make it sound like a movie. So a young woman answers an ad for an apartment sitter in a very fancy building in Manhattan. But there might be a reason this is too good to be true.

I had an #ARC from #Netgalley from 2019. Trying to sort out my pre-pandemic mess. I definitely read more now.
