Gisela Hafezparast | 100 comments I read The Undesired a couple of months ago and it is one of the best by Yrsa Sigurdardottir. I don't tend to like anything supernatural in books, but in this book there is some and it somehow works.

I've got that on my to-read list as well. It will be interesting to hear what you think. Other reviewers whose views I tend to agree with seem to love it. Wished I had more time to read!

Don't let me put you off. I have the same, most I follow raved about it. And most of hers. I am surprised at myself ! For me, there's too much other world. Just not my thing!

Mae (birdsinflight) | 34 comments I'm behind the group, reading the first book of Chris Ould's trilogy, Blood Strand. Like that it is not over-the-top but understated. The setting is fantastic. I'm not sure if I'd read the second in the trilogy. Maybe after a rest.

Really enjoyed that book. Loved the setting.
Just took out The Killing Bay from library. As soon as i finish Behind Her Eyes, i'm diving in. :D

Mae (birdsinflight) | 34 comments After finishing, I'd read then next. I liked the main two detectives, one from the Faroe Islands, and the other a London based detective, working together. That was a highlight, as well as the setting.
