I would categorize “A History of Wild Places “ as more of a mystery than a suspense. Even though the pacing can be rather slow, I was still very much engaged as I read this book. Ernshaw does an excellent job at crafting a solid mystery; I sure as heck didn‘t figure out what happened to Maggie and Travis until it was revealed to me. Talk about a shocker! I‘m glad I picked this as my BOTM. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView 😺
1- The Lord of the Rings
2- The Mists of Avalon, although mainly that's due to the author.
3- magical realism in the tagged book.

Book 8

A History of Wild Places starts out as a mystery about a missing person with a little magical element. It becomes a story about a commune in the middle of the woods. Both are good set-ups but the relationship between the two isn't obvious until the end. It's well-written, and I will read more by the author. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was a gripping suspense thriller about a mysterious community with something very dark occurring. I am glad I didn‘t know much going in and I highly recommend you do the same! 4.5⭐️

The Paper Palace: A Novel | Miranda Cowley Heller

I thought The Paper Palace is about a woman in her 50s who is at a point in her life where she feels she has to choose between her husband and her childhood sweetheart/best friend/ the love of her life. Mind you, they have been friends for many years, so why now? But ok… It isn‘t. The themes are incest, sexual abuse, rape of children. I wish I had known this before I started reading the book. I‘m confused and disgusted. Not for me

Megabooks Yes! I don‘t know why this was such a poplar Reese pick! 3d
Anna40 @Megabooks I think this should either be about abuse or about a difficult decision later in life, but those two mixed together didn‘t work for me - made it a mess. 2d

Reading with the little pup pup. The puppy stage is fun but I'm also really looking forward to when he gets older and hopefully lazy.

Well, this was not a direction I was anticipating for a missing persons mystery. This was a wild story and I had a great time reading it. It make me curious about some of those quaint mountain Hallmark movie towns - perhaps not all is as it seems ;)

Kept me engaged to the end and want to read another of hers. Great book for the start of the year.

She was a shadow. She was the cruel, howling thing that could be heard during a full moon. She was the monster who crept into other children's dreams. But this is how monsters are made: from innocent things.
