After seeing so many five star reviews on goodreads, i was sure the book would be amazing. So this is a #unpopularopinion but i did not like this one. Although the story is very touching, i just found the format confusing. I would've bailed on this one, had it not been short.

Crazeedi I read his other books and loved them,but when I started this I put it down, just not the same 7h
sudi @Crazeedi same, i loved A Man Called Ove And his other nonfiction book. I picked this one because they were so many good reviews, not even a three star review in sight. But it was not a pick for me after all😕 7h

A heartbreaking and touching examination of the three generations of a family struggling with the realities of dementia/Alzheimer‘s disease. This one hit close to home, just having spent a week vacationing with my mother-in-law (who has Alzheimer‘s) and watching my children interact with her on a daily basis, and how this horrible disease has been changing her relationship with them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #AuthorAMonth2020

A short, poignant story of missed opportunities, life choices and redemption. The illustrations were lovely. 💕 #AuthorAMonth2020 @Soubhiville

This book feels like a really bad christmas movie. Where the main character is a jerk who finally redeems himself at the end. Honestly, I'd rather watch the movie 😕

I first read this book 4 1/2 years ago for my book club, and I remember loving it. This time I around I decided to listen to the audio and I found that I still love the book and couldn‘t but laugh out loud while listening to it. I love all the things that happen to keep Ove from being able to end his life. The cast of characters are a hilarious and unique found family that warms the heart. #authoramonth2020

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

As anyone who follows hockey knows, hockey is so much more than just a game - it‘s about community, pride, spirit, resilience, belonging. Fredrik Backman captures all that and so much more in this book. I enjoyed it (listened to it on audio) but not sure his writing style is for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2020 #MillenialAuthor #ReadingEurope2020 #Sweden #LitsyAtoZ #abecederianTBR #B #PopSugar2020 #bookwithatleastafourstarratingongoodreads #AuthorAMonth2020

Cinfhen This book is really different from all of his others so you might want to try another before you rule him out. I‘d say try 3d

This hit close to home: now that I‘m old I harbor a fear of losing memory and stream of consciousness . But this quote is true and pragmatic. I love this book

Us Against You | Fredrik Backman

“Grief is a wild animal that drags us so far out into the darkness that we can‘t imagine ever getting home again. It hurts in such a way that you can never really figure out if it actually passes or if you just get used to it.”
Just spent another day with the characters of Beartown. Smart, poignant, eloquent❤️ The hockey game metaphor was brilliant. I recommend all of Backman‘s writing!

A boy and his grandfather who has alzheimers. Some sweet moments, but not a pick for me.

AmyG @Jee_HookedOnBookz thank you, my friend. 6d
Soubhiville I hope you feel better soon! I‘m logging this for you, but be sure to post your future ones as reviews to be counted on the spreadsheet towards the prize 😊📚 5d
AmyG @Soubhiville How do I do this...post future ones as reviews? 😬 My goal is to read one book a month by the author...I won‘t win any prize. Just want to make sure I am doing this correctly. (edited) 5d
Soubhiville Ah ok. If you would like me to count your finished books on the spreadsheet, just be sure you post reviews about them. If you aren‘t trying for the prize, then you needn‘t worry about it. (I usually just read one per month for each author as well.) 🙂 5d
AmyG @Soubhiville Thank you. Then I will just post a review and not worry. 🤣 5d
