On my nightstand

I am finished with all the inputting of the preorders of the templates and EPP papers for Little Boy Britches this morning. They will be shipping out to everyone on Friday directly from Paper Pieces, my manufacturer. Thank you all for the orders and the How-To blogs and Facebook Live Sew-A-Long will start the week of March 18th. This gives everyone time to get their templates and choose fabric.

Today I wanted to share with you the first of what I plan to be a constant part of this blog as I am relighting my blogging passion. So many tell me they love my book shares on Facebook/Instagram that I thought it would be nice to go a bit more in depth here with shares. I have been thinking about this for awhile and kept putting it off until this book hit my nightstand and even after 10 days of finishing it I feel I must share share share how much I think you should read this book.

It is haunting me. But in a good way.

Yes it hits close to home in some areas, set in the Sodermalm area of Stockholm, where my dear son is now living. A love story. A deep love story. And honesty in the story regarding family dynamics. Not harsh. Just straightforward. It had me turning pages so fast I had to go back twice and reread because I was afraid I missed something.

Doing a bit a research for this blog I found that this book is now being printed in 32 languages! That alone speaks volumes and is written by a first time author.

It has been on my reading wish list for month waiting for the English version to be published at the beginning of this year. I had forgotten the store line and was pleasantly surprised when the first few pages had me in Stockholm. Kismet I thought, as we were waiting for Paul Jr’s paperwork to be cleared for his move.

But truly the store is haunting. So moving was in tears for a few pages. But then I am a bit emotional these last few weeks.

The amazon reviews are very high at 4.5 stars. You can find them for yourself here. Check your library and if they don’t have it, request it, then more people can enjoy it.

If you have read it please comment below your thoughts on the book. I am going to be putting together a Book page on this website so this blog will be eventually linked back to the book on that page.

If you have a book recommendation for me to read please also do so with a comment. We readers love a good recommendation…that is how I found The Red Address Book by Sonia Lundberg.

Enjoy the day,

    I loved “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens and “Beartown”, “A Man Called Ove”, and “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” all by Fredrik Backman

      Excellent suggestions! I already have “Where the Crawdads Sing” on my list and have read “A Man Called Ove” but am adding the last title. Thanks!
