At the Table was a good dysfunctional family read.
Sea of Tranquility was a pick, but only just and I didn‘t love it. Maybe the hype, maybe I peaked at Station Eleven 🤷‍♀️
Loved Cecily, good historical story telling.
Just started Eudora today.

Tamra I haven‘t read any St. John. Perhaps I‘m afraid the hype will prove a disappointment?? Dystopia isn‘t my go to genre. 1w

Her writing is, as always, beautiful. I just didn‘t find any emotional connection to the story. I loved Station Eleven, disliked The Glass Hotel and this one is somewhere in between. It‘s a pick because I really wanted to see how she brought things together and it was very cleverly done.
Hope I‘ve remembered everyone in the tags.

I‘m not familiar with this actor because I don‘t watch films/telly a lot. But this is not the Will Trent that lives in my head!!

jenniferw88 Agreed. I picture Laurence Fox, but wouldn't want him playing Will as he's a #anti-vaccer. 1mo
TrishB @jenniferw88 I think being an anti-vaccer is probably the least of his problems! He‘s not a very nice man is he. I don‘t know who I see explicitly but definitely someone a bit more nerdy if that makes sense! 1mo
jenniferw88 @TrishB no, he's not. It's a shame as I liked him in Lewis. Try to catch an episode of Hudson & Rex (it's on Alibi) - there's an actor there whose a bit 'nerdy'! 1mo

TrishB @cinfhen 👍🏻 on its way (metaphorically as PO not open today!). 1mo
jlhammar Yeah, this isn't a book of likable characters to be sure. I kind of took it more as shining a light on the stories they all told themselves to be able to witness and allow such terrible things. To show how it wasn't just a few monsters, but regular people who actually made something like the Holocaust possible. They all knew even if they didn't want to face it and told themselves stories to be able to live with it and benefit from it. 1mo
TrishB @squirrelbrain nope and I‘m happy for someone else to give it a go! 1mo
TrishB @jlhammar yes that‘s so true- I‘m guessing I was probably reacting to the excuses! 1mo
jlhammar @TrishB I bet! It was hard to take. 1mo
squirrelbrain Well said @jlhammar - the testimony of the ‘regular‘ Weimar townspeople was certainly shocking. 1mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much! And I agree @jlhammar that‘s what makes the Holocaust so horrific / ordinary people turned a blind eye, which makes my heart break now regarding Ukraine😢😢😢 1mo

TrishB @Cinfhen that‘s good to know! It‘s on my kindle and I have a long coach ride later in the week so I need to pick something to keep me occupied! 1mo
TrishB @rockpools they do look nice together don‘t they 😁 Elliott did Flamingo, which I liked so much I brought her other books! 1mo

Another tale full of twists and turns! Love the characters as much as the mysteries.

Cinfhen Agreed!!! The characters are all so fantastic 1mo
TrishB @Cinfhen they make me smile 😁 1mo
Cinfhen They each have their own strengths and weaknesses and play an important part in the series!! I love the banter with Myron 1mo

Loved The Trees.
One Day in April was heartbreaking.
Do Not Feed the Bear was on a par with Flamingo- if you like one you‘ll like the other. I really liked it ❤️
Tally Stick was a good mystery read.
And I‘m currently back with Myron in The Final Detail.

Cinfhen What a splendid amount of reading you did!! Flamingo is still expensive so maybe I‘ll try her other book 1mo
squirrelbrain A great week! I‘d better try this then, seeing as I loved Flamingo. 1mo
TrishB @Cinfhen I‘ve noticed there are some very expensive books around! 1mo

TrishB @squirrelbrain I got a really cheap hardback for Qb used- but doesn‘t look like it‘s been read! 1mo
squirrelbrain The paperback is reduced to Qd.83 on Amazon so I just ordered that! (There were used copies but for the same price when you factor in postage so may as well get brand new!) 1mo
TrishB @squirrelbrain I‘ve brought her other one too! 1mo
Suet624 The Trees. ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo

An engrossing mystery that still left quite a few questions at the end, so if you need neatly tied up endings, this isn‘t for you.

Cathythoughts Sounds good. Poor teddy 💔 (edited) 1mo

Do Not Feed the Bear | Rachel Elliott

I loved this ❤️ although there are sad underlying themes of loneliness and grief, it‘s a feel good read. I loved the characters and even a POV from the dog! Just what I needed to read.
If you enjoyed Flamingo you‘ll enjoy this one.
Another Qb ‘used‘ hardback that I don‘t think has been read.

Cathythoughts Great deal 👍❤️ 1mo

Amazing good news story, I wonder where they‘ve been. Just watched it on the news this morning and the librarian was holding back her tears 😁

Texreader Wow!!! 1mo
squirrelbrain They say they‘ve got no CCTV but there *must* be some nearby. I‘d love to know where they‘ve been…. 1mo
TrishB @Texreader I know 😁 1mo

TrishB @squirrelbrain they say they‘ve got some on the entrances, but unless they‘re actually carrying the pink gift bag how are they going to tell. I‘d love to know where they‘ve been and who just got up and said I‘m taking them back today! (edited) 1mo
squirrelbrain It would make a good book! 🤣 1mo
UwannaPublishme So cool! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
