This book is amazing. I must read more.

Lola I felt the same way, so I started his Plainsong trilogy this year. Just as wonderful as OSAN. I have the last queued up and ready to read 2y
Lola Oh! And a movie of this book is coming out in September on Netflix starring Jane Fonda and Robert Redford 😍 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MjVzSnkmF2Q 2y

I finished Hunger a bit ago, and had to read her fiction. This is very hot, like fire. I love her writing. Very raw. I'm glad there's someone writing like this out there.

BookMusings You should read her novel. It's amazing! 2y

Definitely a book to read when you need a pick me up, a good cry, and a reminder that life is in the details.
I liked that she said when she first started writing that a publisher said no one wants to read memoirs of non-famous people.
I think most of us want to hear real, honest stories from people like us. It reminds us we are all together in this life and gives us comfort to know none of us are 'normal.'

Ok this book totally reminded me of Shirley Jackson. I almost wanted Marjorie to say Merricat. I totally saw the ending coming. I wasn't crazy about this book. I think it lets on to be scarier than it is. I don't know I wasn't impressed.

JoeStalksBeck I didn't care for this book either 2y

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

Interesting book

Lola Interesting blurb...#onmylist 2y
giveitupforlentmom @Lola I'm not sure if I liked it 2y
Lola @giveitupforlentmom I've read all of his others, and still not sure how I feel about this author. I really liked (but didn't love) Ove and preferred Grandmother (which I did like but less than Ove) to Britt Marie. I liked his recent novella also. I've heard that Beartown is a major departure from his others-i.e. more serious, less whimsical. 2y
giveitupforlentmom @Lola yes totally not his norm. That wasn't an issue for me, the way it ended was not ok to me. 2y
Dineanddish I've only loved Ove of his...everything else I've read has been meh. 2y

Such a great book !!!! Rating the three in order: crazy Rich Asians , rich people problems, China Rich Girlfriend. Seems the author got back to the best part of his first book in this third one.

This is such a cute series!! My daughter and I read the first one together bc she couldn't get the jokes! But this second one she read alone and totally thought it was the best. I read it just now and omg so cute! What a wonderful author and illustrator!! In this picture Super Narwhal is trying to get a starfish back up into the sky with the rest of the stars. It didn't work. 😉
