Us Against You | Fredrik Backman

I know it's being released in a couple weeks in the US, but has anyone read this one? I loved Beartown, but I'm not sure it required a sequel. Like a sequel to a good movie, I'm nervous about reading this one.

tpixie I haven‘t read it. But ? Trust the author? I liked hearing more about Britt-Marie in her own book... 🍀🍀🍀🍀 2y

Great updated version of a classic. Took a few chapters to get into and sort out who all the characters were both within this book and the original, but with each chapter I became more engrossed in the story and really loved this version. It''s true to Shakespeare, while being a great Nesbo novel!

Wow! Difficult topic, no tidy ending, hard to read. Yes, it's a YA book, but this is one that needs to be read and discussed.

There seems to be a trend in formulas for psychological thrillers. This book definitely follows the formula. I think the appeal of the book depends on how many others you have read like it. I found it predictable.

Jeg Thanks for that. Will wait until I can borrow from library. 😊 2y

I learned a lot about different cultures and the struggles and prejudices faced by both custom and others. The story was really good. It was also well done in showing how one mistake can effect future outcomes. The only thing that confused me were some of the side stories. Some of them weren't tied into the main story and I wasn't sure of the purpose. Definitely worth the read though!

The Taster | V.S. Alexander

I really liked this one. I felt this book had a very interesting perspective. The narrator starts out indifferent to what is happening around her and ends up working for Hitler. She learns about herself and the realities of what is happening on Nazi Germany, while being very sheltered from reality. I read this one for my book club and am looking forward to discussing it with others as it provides lots of talking points.

The Child | Fiona Barton

This book was much better since I went into it without the expectation of it being a psychological thriller. As in The Widow, it's really about a reporter who uncovers the truth behind unsolved cases.

The Widow | Fiona Barton
Mehso-so

The Widow was a good, easy read. It kept my attention throughout. I was expecting plot twists and suspense based on it being billed as psychological thriller, but I don't think it necessarily lived up to those expectations. Still, I enjoyed it enough that I will read The Child.

"The dead are never far from us. They're in our hearts and on our minds and in the end all that separates us from them is a single breath, one final puff of air."

My book club picked this book for our next read. I was worried I wouldn't finish it in time (since I hadn't started it), so I took a break from the book I had been reading and picked this one up. I don't think it was an accident since I had just returned from my grandfather's funeral.

I'm still not sure how I feel about Ginny's forever mom. I know I should be more sympathetic towards her as life with Ginny and a newborn is incredibly difficult, but I'm still angry with her negativity... Always thinking the worst of Ginny and looking down on others (like when she talks about Goodwill). But I loved Ginny's story and watching her grow stronger and start learning how to self-advocate!

Chelleo Yes, Mara is definitely showing her privilege as well as bias towards her newborn. I get it to a degree. First time moms are extremely protective and are learning as they go. I‘m sure she would have been much different if she had kids prior to adopting Ginny. I feeling the same as Ginny when the baby didn‘t laugh for her. 2y

Still reading, but need to vent... Up to page 197 and right now Ginny's forever mom has me all worked up!!! 😡😡😡

Heartbreaking 💔 My first thought when I finished this book. Loved the characters and the honesty portrayed between them in their relationships with each other and themselves in regards to mental health. OCD is pretty prevalent in my family. The insight provided was eye opening and appreciated!

Jeg I loved the book for similar reasons , have given a copy to a friend with teenage daughter with mental health issues. Also love that Xmas decoration I can see with Horton . 😊 2y

13 Reasons Why | Jay Asher

Finally read this book after the TV show caused so much contraversy. (I didn't see the show and the book has been on my to read list for years.) I have a son going into high school, this was the right time to read it. No glamorizing suicide. If we can't talk about we can't prevent it. The events in this book are so common but need to be talked about People need to see how every action, no matter how inconsequential it may seem, does effect others

I was a little hesitant to read this one. I had read The Dinner, which I had loved and then couldn't wait to read Summer House with Swimming Pool. Unfortunately I was disappointed and did not like that one. Dear Mr. M ended up being a fantastic read and I was not at all disappointed! Would highly recommend this one.
