So. Many. Tears. I loved this book! And I really enjoyed Death as a narrator.

Wow! Finally a thriller again that I really, really liked, from the first to the last page. It‘s Japanese, thus unusual. And it‘s not so much (we know who did it!) about the murder but about the investigation.

Last but not least it #RemindsMeOfMyHappyPlace, which is Japan, where I had the most wonderful time some years ago and where I really want to return to some day. #Booked2019

TrishB I‘d love to go to Japan! 6mo
julesG It reminds her of her happy place, says the woman who's reading on a Caribbean island right now. 🙈🙈🙈😸😸 6mo
BarbaraBB @julesG Ooooh, I sound horrible! You‘re absolutely right!! I am so very happy right now too. I just chose this book months ago as the one for this prompt, not knowing then where I would be reading it 😯🙈🙈🙈🙈😘 6mo

BarbaraBB @erzascarletbookgasm I will 😁, I mmediately bought a used copy of (edited) 6mo
arubabookwoman That was the 1st book I read by Higashino and I liked it a lot. I've read a couple of others by him that I liked too. I envy your time in Curacao-of course I would pop over to Aruba too. 6mo
BarbaraBB @arubabookwoman I hope you‘ll get there one day again, when your husband feels better! 6mo
Cinfhen Since #booked2018 and the #JapaneseThriller prompt I‘ve become a fan of this genre. Your review of this book sounds excellent ❤️ 6mo
Cinfhen Ha, but after reading the publisher‘s blurb I realized I bailed on this book last year 😂😂😂 6mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen Really? For me it was the thriller I had been waiting for for months: one that didn‘t disappoint! #booked2018 made me a real fan too, That‘s why I used one again for #Booked2019 😉😘 6mo
cathysaid Love this author. Just discovered 2017-18. 6mo
BarbaraBB @cathysaid thanks! The Nakano Thrift Shop is on my tbr. Have you read 6mo
Cinfhen I haven‘t read either book @cathysaid but I‘ve seen good reviews for Traveling Cat. 6mo
cathysaid @BarbaraBB No! But it is now stacked...thanks! 6mo
cathysaid @Cinfhen I was concerned the book would be too “sweet” but it was actually quite clever and beautifully written! 6mo

AmyG I teally enjoyed Fruit of the Drunken Tree. 6mo
IamIamIam @AmyG It was so unexpected!!! It was terrifying that the author actually had a kidnapping experience similar to the event in the book!! I never realized just how easy I had it growing up!! 6mo
Cinfhen You‘re slaying it!!!! I can‘t wait to read 6mo

Part chronicle of a disease, part life story, part travelogue—Moloka‘i has someone for most readers. It‘s heart wrenching sometimes, but with every sadness is a victory. If you‘ve lived with chronic illness like me, this may have special meaning for you. Highly recommend!

Second book in series pub date 2/19/19—already started the ARC.

4thhouseontheleft A 2nd book is coming out soon? I didn‘t know! I love this book. Right after I read it, I picked up a NF book on the same topic that is also excellent. (edited) 6mo
Cinfhen My aunt an avid reader just told me I have to read this book and she is MOST EXCITED about the new book!!!! 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft Thanks! Pub date for book 2 is soon! Here‘s another NF book you might like. 6mo

Finished my last book for #winter #booked2019
This for #remindsmeofmyhappyplace.
Anything to do with nature, wildlife, countryside, seaside works for me. 🦉🦅🦆🌲🍁⛰🏝

RachelO 👏👏👏Congratulations. And that looks good - I hadn‘t heard of it! 6mo
Cinfhen Congrats 🎊🍾🎈 Are you going to start on #Spring19 or wait???? 6mo
Soozee @Cinfhen I only have 2 books planned for Spring so far. But I might crack on while the going is good - we have our house up for sale, if it sells spring/summer could get quite hectic. 6mo
Cinfhen Good luck with the house sale 💚I know how hectic both the selling & moving can become!!! Amazing that you were able to read all 6 books already!!! Amazing 🙌🏻 6mo

For a book called the Cookbook Collector, it took an awful long time to have any discussions of cookbooks. I appreciated how it tied in in the end, but still felt the book was lackluster over all and wanted more.

#RemindsMeOfMyHappyPlace #Booked2019 #6of65

Cinfhen Too bad it wasn‘t a total pick! Sounds like it had potential 6mo
Literaturenut @Cinfhen Yeah, I was really hoping for a Like Water For Chocolate Feel with less misogyny, but unfortunately, it was disappointing on both account. (Although less so on the second count.) 6mo

Finished book number 4 of #24in48. I was already halfway through this before this weekend but it was a great book and I‘m glad I had the dedicated time to read it. If I ever go to LA the Central Library is my first destination! This book also #remindsmeofmyhappyplace for #booked2019.

Cinfhen Waiting for my library loan to come in🤞🏼 7mo
