  1. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I really disliked the book All the Light We Cannot See. That's one show I'll definitely be skipping.

    2. It was so painful that it took me over 6 months to finish it. If it wasn't for my mental problem that makes me have to see things through to the end, I would have stopped reading after the 3rd chapter.

    3. Painful as in bad book or painful subject?

    4. I am so glad I didn't read this one then. Every time I went to the library, I'd pick it up from the recommended table and contemplated checking it out, but something always made me put it back in favor of a different read.

    5. It has been a massive hit, though.

    6. Painful as dreadfully boring and fantasizing a very serious, painful subject.

  3. The Hanging Sun intrigues me. I'll have to read the book first, but I'm jotting this one down to remember to watch the film when it's available.

    1. Nesbo is probably the most popular European writer for years now. Each of his books is a massive bestseller here, haven't read him myself, though.

  4. House of Secrets sounds like it might be entertaining.
