The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides
post image
Pickpick

An interesting read with a great plot twist at then end. Michaelides wrote the book from two primary perspectives and shifted easily between the male and female voices. Although the end was a great surprise, the beginning of the book was slow and there were points where the dialogue didn‘t ring true. The story would probably be better executed as a movie (can‘t believe those words just came out of my mouth!)

lele1432 I also think this would make a good movie! 2d

Treat 💗 Aero ; Treat 🤢 Whoppers; Tradition ⭐️ Taking a UNICEF box trick-or-treating. This was the best part of Halloween. I keep a bowl of dollar coins by my front door now so I‘m ready for other UNICEF collectors. Costume 🙆🏻‍♀️A ballet dancer, but I had to wear my tights and tutu over my snow pants & parka - not a good look. However, as I look back it always makes me laugh!

🌴. Robinson Cruso 🧦 Socks always socks. ✈️ Highest elevation was a plane. 🤢Liver and onions. 🎃Absolutely! #friyayintro

Sace But... Liver and onions are tasty 😢 (I'm weird.) 3d
Come-read-with-me @Sace As I grew up, liver and onions were a monthly thing in our house. My Mum loved them. In fact she belonged to a club called the ‘Liver Lovers Luncheons” - they loved this stuff so much they even had a theme song “We love liver yes we do. We love liver how ‘bout you? “ It‘s much longer than this first line - I‘ve repressed it! So if you are weird you are in great company! 3d

Into The Water | Paula Hawkins

This book was a mixed bag for me. The strengths included: multiple narrators (loved reading the interpretation of events from varying perspectives); an interesting twist in family dynamics; and multigenerational murders. The challenges were: characters that were not relatable or sympathetic; meandering prose; and an unsatisfying ending. I thought her first book was much better, but, as mentioned, there were strengths in this story as well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

erzascarletbookgasm Her debut was so much better! This was a weak Pick for me. 3d
Buechersuechtling Yes, in most points I agree with you. I am remember to also have thought the ending is a bit weak but I _loved_ all the women‘s stories in there. 3d

Do you suffer from the heartbreak of tautologies? This is both a humourous look at how people misuse the English language and a tutorial on how to avoid sounding like many politicians. We all use redundancies in our language but this wonderful book offers reminders about what we should be mindful of. I laughed my way through this gem and walked away richer for the experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dead Guilty is not on the database, so I tagged one of Durant‘s others novels. Dead Guilty sounded like another Christy-esque type mystery. The story, set in Wales, follows a dogged detective trying to solve two seemingly separate cases. The plot was good, but they style of writing wasn‘t fluid and the ending was somewhat predictable. This always happens when the cover boasts “a twist you‘ll never see coming” because then you expect it! ⭐️⭐️1/2

Another trio of fun unicorn books. These tend to be very appealing to toddlers, but my 4 & 6 yo nieces loved them. These books sparked a myriad of ideas that let them explore the environment in news ways. The text was simple enough that the 6 yo could actually read some of the pages. Great little reading treasures! 🦄🦄🦄

Forgotten Saskatchewan | Chris Attrell

A little more Canadian love today. Saskatchewan isn‘t always thought of as one of the “beautiful” provinces - it is an acquired taste. But if you love untouched land, amazing skies, and topographic diversity ( read - not just flat) Saskatchewan is a marvelous gift. As a Saskatchewan native the photos in all three of these books take my breath away (not that I‘m biased or anything.) 🇨🇦

Jaimelire I love driving through Saskatchewan in the summer. So gorgeous♥️ 7d
Come-read-with-me @Jaimelire I hope you love it! Are you going through the Southern or Northern part of the province? Let me know and I‘ll give you some “sights” tips! 7d

Come-read-with-me @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Same holds for what I told @Jaimelire . I really love the province. 7d
Jaimelire We went through southern part of Saskatchewan. I live in Alberta, also gorgeous. We usually go to BC for summer holidays, but we decided to head in the opposite direction. It was awesome! Less tourist, lots to see and friendly people everywhere. We plan to visit more of Saskatchewan in the future. 7d
Come-read-with-me @Jaimelire Alberta is beautiful! I lived in both Calgary and Edmonton for a few years. So happy to know that you thought Saskatchewan was beautiful. The people are astoundingly friendly. My husband, who is from Southern California, is always astounded by Canadian people in general. 🇨🇦 7d

The first book was a quirky adventure with a highly likable and adventurous protagonist, so I was excited to read the follow-up. Sadly this story just didn‘t live up to the promise of the first. The characters were still interesting but lost some of the naive/wondrous quality that made them so appealing. The book had some truly funny and insightful moments, but overall it wasn‘t a compelling read. ⭐️⭐️1/2

This is a great Halloween read-together for preschooler/kindergarten aged children. The rhyming text and quirky pictures combine to produce a fantastic exploration of what happens when witchy Mrs. Bibblebox wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. Sadly, the book is no longer in print so if you find one buy it! This will be a Halloween must read for years to come.

Hidden Bodies | Caroline Kepnes

While the story is an interesting follow-up to ‘You,‘ Joe seemed to lose some of the intriguingly, creepy charm that propelled his character during the first book. He is still crazy and morally bankrupt in so many ways, but the story loses it‘s edge in the sunshine of Southern California. Love is a great character and she adds an interesting twist, but the book felt more like a transition between a first and third book than a stand alone story.

This beautifully illustrated book of 10 different animals is fun for children of all ages. By changing sections of the pages, you can mix-and-match the head/middle/legs of the animals to create almost 1000 new creatures. The definitions for each new creature is a blend of the definitions for the original three animals. The language used is not simplified for children and helps them learn about history & unique biology. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a character driven mystery that reminded me of classic Agatha Christie.

This story has great bones, but I found the telling somewhat convoluted and redundant. In my opinion the story was plodding and the characters less than compelling.
