message 10: by 4bravecats (new)

4bravecats Disappearing Earth by Julia Phillips is way more than a Mystery. I don't even read mysteries. This is an amazing novel that happens to have a mystery in it. The setting is Kamchatka in the Russian Far East, and the geography of that peninsula is a huge part of the background. In talking about the mystery, the author shows us the daily lives of different parts of the society: the urban lives of the ethnic Russians, who are in the majority, and the lives, urban and rural, of the minority native people. And the STORY! And the CHARACTERS!

True! Tho you want to see what's going to happen, I was way more excited about getting to know all the characters. I think it is such an amazing representation of women and their "tragedies". It touched so many subjects and really left me speechless on many occasions.


message 12: by Fanette (new)

Fanette Might read American Royals, what a fancy plot!


message 13: by Jia ♥ (new)

 Jia ♥ LoVEd opposite of always it made me cry it was amazing.

!kjkkk


message 19: by Mickey (new)

Mickey Almost ALL of these titles look interesting, especially thanks to COVID-19 keeping us in the house more than normal. When I told my nephew that I've been reading about a book a day these past few months, his eyes practically fell out of his head.... (funny kid) So much fun to re-read old favorites, and discover new ones.


message 20: by Heather R (new)

Heather R My TBR pile is positively groaning already so I’m not sure this helps, but can I just say what GORGEOUS covers 95% of these books have? They say not to judge books by covers but come on, you know you do! And they’re pretty digitally and on the surface of what I call Dead Tree Books. Let’s hear it for the artists who entice us to read the words! ❤️


message 21: by William (new)

William Robinson Most of these books are by women authors, which i usually skip over. I like Ben Rehder,Mark Paul,Kurt Schlichter


message 22: by Carson (new)

Carson I once counted the number of bookshelves in my house and it was staggeringly high. With these, most on my TBR list, in paperback, I'm pretty sure my house is several shelves away from exploding. Still, Holly Black and Seanan McGuire are musts.

I recently read When All Is Said and enjoyed it.


message 24: by Mary (new)

Mary T Miracle Creek, by Angie Kim, is amazing for a debut novel, a whodunit incorporating medical science with a murder trial involving parents & kids.


message 25: by Judy (new)

Judy If you grew up in the 1960’s or just want a taste of it then read Summer of ‘69. It’s a great book!
