Author Review – Ragnar Jonasson

9780718187255Bleak, cold and brooding Iceland is the setting for all of Ragnar Jonasson’s mystery and thriller novels. Currently writing two different series, his stories have quickly become global bestsellers with vivid descriptions of the dark events that can take place in the desolate North Atlantic. Gritty crimes with realistic characters make each of his novels a gripping read. Jonasson is yet another great Nordic noir author alongside the likes of Stieg Larsson, Jo Nesbo, Henning Mankell and Anne Holt.

Author Review – Debbie Macomber

11349I usually borrow Debbie Macomber books as Audiobooks. It’s like going for a drive with a gossipy friend who knows heaps of peoples and hearing stories of what they have been up to. Her books are generally set in small communities in North America and commonly have romantic elements. I find them undemanding and relatively enjoyable. I suggest you start with the “Cedar Cove” series.

Book Review – Leah on the Offbeat

51MxvSVFmzL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgHow do you write a book review on absolute perfection? I finished this book and then I wanted to read it again because of all this cuteness overload. This book made me laugh and cry with all my heart and made me so happy by the end of it. Albertalli writes with this beautiful lightness that is almost impossible not to love.
