I Can See in the Dark

I Can See in the DarkI Can See in the Dark by Karin Fossum

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Riktor, Riktor, Riktor....is the narrator of this book. His life is depressing. He is ordinary, works in a nursing home where the patients have nothing to look forward to other than death. He is compassionate to a point....but still does not like his job. Depressing.....until he is accused of killing one of the patients. Then Riktor continues to tell his story from jail, ...where his story is Depressing.

When I completed this book I just wanted to shake Riktor....and tell him life is full of choices, stop complaining ... you are depressing me.

Memory Scents

Memory ScentsMemory Scents by Gayle Eileen Curtis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


From cover to cover this book kept me turning the pages. We never realize how what we do and say affects the people we deal with. Tim grew up in a house not wanted by his mother and therefore made the choice in his life to become a serial killer. One girl escaped only to later on be confronted by her tormentor. Lives intertwined and secrets came out. You will not want to put this thriller down.

I thought I saw....

a piece of nana in my children.  How many times have been looked at our children and/or grandchildren and see something they do or say that reminds you of an earlier generation?  Is it coincidence ? a sign? or something "higher" that is telling us we continue to live in each other.



When my children were first walking (many years ago) it surprised me that sometimes they actually stood up with their hands behind their back.....


A trait my grandmother always had.....and this freaked me out - seeing it in my children.....I still feel it was  a little bit of her handed down into their generation......and thus we continue the chain.  We continue down the line with grandchildren - who love to watch wrestling..because that is what their great grandfather used to do.

There is a little piece of all of us that gets handed down through the generations.

Big Little Lies......a review

Big Little LiesBig Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I love the way the book starts off and banters back and forth between what led up to trivia night. Because we all know someone died - got killed - on trivia night but dont know who. So each step of the way brings us closer while we get to know the characters, their lives and their secrets. Jane brings it all together when we find out the biggest secret toward the end.

Look into each family's life, their children, their school life and their hopes. A must read book for anyone who loves secrets.

Shredder.....

Well, that was exhausting.  There comes a time in our daily doings that time must be devoted to shredding.  It is not that hard nor is it something I hate (like cleaning bathrooms).  But it must be done and done it is.....for now.


So up I went to the computer room and sifted through the many papers - some dating back several years (why do we save everything?) and shredded my day away.  That was only what was visible.  Now there are also file cabinet drawers that need to be done....so I can make room for more important papers.....that will need to be shredded eventually.......
