“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you're not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don't have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out." ~ Deb Caletti

This one took me a while to get through. I kept putting it down between chapters and not really excited to pick it back up. Glad I finished it as it reminded me of our time in Stockholm and on the ferry between Finland and Sweden - minus the crimes. As I was reading it, we were visiting my MIL in a nursing home and wishing she had the same level of energy as Martha.

I couldn‘t finish this one. It‘s about a group of older people who try to do crime to prove they‘re smart, but they‘re just written as being so silly that I can‘t follow it. I think it‘s just not for me.

BookNAround I didn‘t like this one much either, nor did most of my book club. 6mo

#ChipmunkCat agrees: this is a fun read! So suspend disbelief about the ability of seniors to pull off improbable heists flawlessly, and just let the merriment ensue. #CatsofLitsy

MaggieCarr Literally snorted a few times enjoying this book. Of you continue on with the series, I'm curious if they are equally as good. 7mo

I have to finish my library books before starting on the new Marlon James! Finished this call to arms for independent seniors disguised as a caper comedy. A group of disgruntled but very genteel seniors at an old age home revolt against cutbacks in staff and services. Their solution: kidnapping Rembrandt and Monet paintings for ransom, bank robberies and high jinks to create a fund so that retirement homes have as high standards as Scandi prisons!

RachelO This sounds fun! 10mo

Early mornings at the airport.
I'm not sure how I feel about this one...not sure if it's the translation, but the writing isn't that great to me

After loving Ove but discovering that he was younger than I thought, I listened to this book with five friends from a nursing home who embark on a life of crime. They are all over 70- so I feel better about completing this prompt of #Booked2018 !! Unfortunately, the book wasn‘t as hilariously charming as I expected... but it was fun to #audiocolor in my Golden Girls coloring book while listening! 😊

JoScho Lol I knew instantly that this was Sophia‘s purse! 12mo
tpixie I agree I thought Ovi was so much older then when he ended up being! 12mo
TorieStorieS @JoScho 👏👏👏 Yay for my favorite Golden Girl! For St Nicholas Day, my husband got me a chia Sophia! I‘m so sorry excited to grow her hair!! 🤣🤣🤣 12mo

TorieStorieS @tpixie I know!!! I listened to the audio and I nearly stopped my car when they said he was only 59!!!!🤣🤣🤣 12mo
Cinfhen Congrats!!!i love how dedicated you are 🏆too bad about this book - sounds so cute! I‘ve just unstacked 😂 12mo
JoScho @TorieStorieS that is very cool! 12mo
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen My pleasure to help out!!! And yes, I read recently that oldest children tend to be rule followers so I had to find older MCs!! 🤣 12mo
TorieStorieS @JoScho Yes!! It was a great surprise- looking forward to starting to grow it after Christmas (we host Christmas Eve so I wanted to wait till after that to set it up in case it starts out messy!) 12mo
tpixie @TorieStorieS oh fun!!! 12mo
tpixie @TorieStorieS me too! I wonder if people act older in the country the authors from. Or just that Ovi is crotchety?!!! 12mo
TorieStorieS @tpixie Thanks! Yeah- I think Ove is just particularly crotchety!!! Even in the younger memories, that seems clear! 🤣🤣🤣 12mo
tpixie @TorieStorieS 😃😆😂 12mo
