Reading progress update: I've read 2 out of 256 pages.
The Night of the Hunter - Davis Grubb,Julia Keller

Pearl made them listen to the song about the hanging man.

Hing Hang Hung! See what the hangman done! chanted the little girl, and Willa, whirling, slammed the sloshing cup to the black stove top and struck the child so the four marks of her fingers were pink in the small flesh.

Don´t you ever sing that! Ever! Ever! Ever!

Willa´s poor, thin hands were knotted into tight blue fists. The knuckles shone white like the joints of butchered fowl. Pearl would have wept, but it seemed to her that now, at last, she might get to the heart of the matter and so withheld the tears.

Why? she whispered. Why can´t I sing that song? The kids down at Cresap´s Landing sing it. And John said ...

Never you mind what John said. God in heaven, as if my cross wasn´t hard enought to bear without my children - his own children - mocking me with it! Now hush!

Where´s Dad?

Hush! Hush!

But why won´t you tell? John knows.

Hush! Hush your mouth this minute!

 

I don´t know the movie version of this book, so I haven´t gotten a clue what is going on. But I´m hooked and I have only read two pages so far.

Night Night, Groot - Brendan Deenan,Cale Atkinson
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

An adorable picture book for superhero lovers of all ages. So cute!

With appearances from many Marvel favorites including Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers, Spiderman, and Black Panther, this is a great bedtime story for superhero fans. It has a soothing rhyme scheme, hilarious pictures, and of course, Rocket Raccoon.

Very entertaining and beautifully-illustrated. 

A great addition to any superhero picture book collection.

Review: The Night Ferry (Konrad Simonsen #5) by Lotte & Soren Hammer
The Night Ferry - Lotte Hammer

 

Sixteen children and four adults are killed in a devastating boat crash in Copenhagen. Detective Chief Superintendent Konrad Simonsen is called in, only to discover that this was no accident and that one of the passengers has a very personal connection to the homicide team.

Reeling from this revelation and not knowing who to trust, Simonsen follows a trail that eventually leads him to Bosnia and a network of criminal misconduct. All evidence points towards one shady figure: a high-ranking army specialist with a suspicious past. But the more Simonsen digs, the further the truth slips from his grasp.

 

 

*I received a free copy from the publisher and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

When I was offered this book for review I thought it sounded interesting. And I’m happy to report that it was and even more so then I thought.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and everything about it. I enjoyed the setting, Denmark, which was a nice change of pace and I enjoyed it to learn more about it, I only been there once. I loved the characters, the bad, the good and the ugly , we get a nice mix of them and of course I really enjoyed the story which kept me glued to the page and kept me up late to finish it. I couldn’t put it down and just had to know who, where and what ;)

The pacing of the book was great most of the times there were only a few times it felt a bit too slow or maybe I was just impatient. I also should mention that while I really enjoyed the setting it also took me a couple chapters to get used to it and learn about their laws as I went a long. But it was a pretty smooth getting used to as the book just sucks you further and further into the plot.

This was my first book in this series but I think I will go and read some of the other books in the series I also will keep my eye out for future books be the authors.  If you a fan of murder mystery and thrillers I think you will enjoy this book.

I rate it 4 ★

Flying at Night
Flying at Night - Rebecca L. Brown

The plot of Flying at Night, the character driven debut novel by Rebecca L. Brown is a relatable one. It is about a family redefining itself and rediscovering itself in light of a medical crisis and a medical diagnosis. The book is touching, and the ending is a surprise to me. In hindsight, I can see it, but not in first reading the book. It leaves me thinking.

 

 

Reviewed for Penguin First to Read program.
