This beauty finally found its way to my home 😊 I've been looking forward to reading Beartown for a while now. It's a cold rainy day today, perfect for a cozy afternoon with a book📚 and a cuppa☕

CathyJ I really loved this one! I'm excited for the sequel coming out in the summer. 2y
suomi @CathyJ I didn't know there is a sequel coming out! Yay😊 2y
Libby1 Such a lovely cover. The UK cover and title (The Scandal) are rather boring. 2y

Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman
post image

I am really into Norse Mythology and loved this audio book! Neil Gaiman also narrated the book and it was fun listening to him tell the stories. He told the stories with a modern twist and I think he did an excellent job. I certainly was entertained! This was my first book by Gaiman. Not sure which one of his to pick up next. #norsemythology #Gaiman

Owlizabeth If you like mythology, go with American Gods! But I recommend all of his books to everyone because I think he's aces. 2y
suomi @Owlizabeth Thank you ☺ I'll read that one next! 2y
Moony Oh yesterday I saw the book at the bookshop. Perhaps I will buy it, but mythology isn't my favorite theme. 2y

I really was looking forward to reading this one. The story started out promising but halfway through the book I actually lost interest and put the book aside to pick it up a few days later. I had to force myself to finish it. Some parts of the story just didn't come together for me.

Meribeth is a busy working mom. So busy taking care of her husband and children that she ignores all the signs of a heart attack. She realized that this is a huge inconvenience for her husband. Without her running the household he is pretty much useless. She had enough and packs her bags.
I thought it was a good read. At times I could relate to Meribeth but I'm not sure if her issues were resolved at the end.

I listened to the audio book while knitting. It's a nice cozy mystery. Pepper Reece is the owner of a spice shop in Seattle and a murder happens right in front of her store. Everything is explained with so much detail, it felt like I was with her at every location. I'm definitely going to check out more books of the series!

I really wanted to like this book. After a great beginning it just became ridiculous and too far fetched for me. Poppy Day's husband Mart gets deployed to Afghanistan. She gets the disturbing news that Mart is being held captive by terrorists. Not satisfied with how things are being done to rescue Mart, she is determined to get him back home, no matter what. I was an Army wife once and relate to her frustration, the plan is just too unbelievable.
