I‘m about half way through this ... each chapter is a different year featuring the house and those that come into contact with it ... won‘t put any spoilers here .. it‘s all a bit weird .. I want to see it through to find out what‘s going on but it‘s weird enough I also want to just give up hmmmm

Just finished this book ... wasn‘t sure I‘d like it and the start seemed a little over loaded with a lot of characters but as I got further in with it the style of writing and the more details that came through about the characters .... I really enjoyed it ... it‘s a debut novel and I‘d definitely read more of his booked based on this one 😊

The Early Birds | Laurie Graham
post image

New book group read ..... first page or so sounds interesting :)

So to follow up on this about a month later .. finished this yesterday. Great read it sort of rambled and meandered through the life stories and older years of Peggy and her friends ... it was funny, sad, moving in equal measure .... I liked the feel of it with its American roots and hints of their past lives and their older years ... worth reading I thought

Troubling Love | Elena Ferrante

About a third of the way into this novel. It has a dark brooding mood to it, well written and lyrical, the intricacies and shadows of family life ....
