The Lost Man | Jane Harper

Pickpick

I rushed to finish this today so I can return it to a book club buddy. Jane Harper is a bit of a sensation here in Australia. She has produced 3 best sellers 3 years. I read her 1st novel The Dry and liked (but didn‘t love) it. I subsequently passed on her second, but heard this, her 3rd, was the best.

I‘m pleased to say I really liked it. A bit of a #palatecleanser whodunnit and very good descriptions of Australia‘s harsh outback.

Joanne1 Definitely my favourite of the three too. 3mo
Freespirit My favourite too. 3mo
CarolynM I did love The Dry, I wasn't so keen on the second one and I think this one is probably is probably the best. (edited) 3mo

What a delightful #palatecleanser. I purchased this #blameitonlitsy for my book club this month as my friend @Jeg prescribed us a #graphicread (of our choice). This is the first of two I intend to read. #nextup Women In Battle 👊

Liatrek Loved this book so much! 3mo
Jeg I‘ve got one of those books about being an introvert. I love it. 3mo

This is a zany, fluffy, romantic-comedy type of story with a cliché mystery plot thrown in. It has peppy dialogue and a cast of kooky unlikeables making bad decisions.

Way outside of my “usual”. I would recommend it as a fun listen for an afternoon of sunbathing, with a (strong) margarita in hand ???

Beautiful morning audiowalk! The book is enjoyable, but a little too chick lit for me. The magic bits are great, though. #audiowalk #litsywalkers

Of Mice and Men | Steinbeck

Lenny who is intellectually disabled travels with George across California working on ranches and dreaming of a place of their own. George cares for Lenny and tries to ensure their safety and ability to live and work. This packed an emotional punch I was not expecting. I‘m sitting here now feeling totally walloped. A lot of emotional impact in a very short book. Need a #palatecleanser ASAP. #booked2018 #underdoghero #classic

Tamra I love Steinbeck‘s novellas. In the right hands, short stories and novellas can really be powerful. 7mo
Cinfhen Yes!!! So many emotions in this little gem. Great choice for the prompt!!! 7mo
Blaire @Tamra @cinfhen yes. I was not familiar with the story and gosh it hit me hard. 7mo

Finally reading this after the entire world already has. I was 109th on the library hold list yet my copy looks practically new. I wonder if they traded them out through their jobber!

vivastory I haven't read this one yet. I'll be curious to see what you think. 8mo

Was in need of something light. This fits the bill and happens to be my feminist book club‘s pick for this month. #palatecleanser #fbc #currentread #bookandcoffee

I picked this book up at my local library - where I spied it on the returns shelf - because I‘d heard a bit about it: debut Irish author who recently emigrated to Western Australia (where I live).
I don‘t do a lot of crime fiction these days and I found this an enjoyable #palatecleanser. It‘s reasonably well-written and I was keen to find out #whodoneit.

cariashley Beautiful backdrop! 9mo
Avanders Hey! We're reading this for our next real life book group! 😄😄 @Chelley 9mo
