Well, he‘s done it again. Loved this book! Backman evokes a wide range of emotions over the course of the book, as he is want to. I will have to read this one again for sure. 5/5

Anxious People: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

Started this one yesterday. Backman is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This one is witty, funny with some touching moments thrown in, just what you‘d expect of Backman

The Devil All the Time | Donald Ray Pollock

Pickpick

This book was perfection. I enjoyed Knockemstiff but this was Pollock at his finest. Dark, gritty and a host of unlikeable characters with a wonderful protagonist all combine to a great ending. Highly recommended fans of Wiley Cash and Cormac McCarthy.

I‘m soo behind on posting. I finished this like a week ago. Really enjoyed this one. It was a pretty quick read, I felt like the ending was a bit rushed and probably could have been drawn out a bit more but other than that, it was pretty solid.

Nick Cutter does not disappoint. I‘m not sure if I liked this or The Troop better but both were so good. Creepy, atmospheric, claustrophobic setting makes for quite the page turner.

Paper Towns | Green, John
post image

I know several people said they did not like the ending to this one but I did. I enjoy these types of endings in general though. Green‘s books maybe similar but he is good at what he does. Looking for Alaska is still my favorite of his but this was close behind.

The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir | Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich

Part memoir, part true crime made for a really compelling book. The writing is really good as it alternates back and forth between the two stories until they converge (somewhat).

This got a pick from me but barely. A few really good stories in this one but one was literally a recap of hundreds of SVU episodes. Her writing was certainly powerful at times, but did I mention one short story is a recap of SVU episodes?

Another one that took me far too long to get around to. Such a wonderful writer. I‘m not sure there is any book that can really make a civilian understand what it was like to fight in a war, but surely this has to be pretty close.

wildwoodreads I loved this book so much. And if you enjoyed this I would highly recommend Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes. 4y
Suet624 @megzlynn I completely agree. Matterhorn was an astonishing read. I‘m so glad I dove in. 4y

Giovanni's Room | James Baldwin
post image
Pickpick

I came to Baldwin‘s books far too late in life but he has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Giovanni‘s Room is a beautifully written, yet heartbreaking story of an expat living in France coming to terms with his sexuality but it‘s also so much more than that. I highly recommend this if you haven‘t read it yet.

5/5
