This week’s choice is…



You Were Made for This

by Michelle Sacks (Goodreads Author)
 3.58  ·   Rating details ·  114 Ratings  ·  72 Reviews
A bold, sharp, gripping debut about a couple whose perfect life in the Swedish countryside is not what it seems…


In an idyllic house in a Swedish wood, Merry and her husband are building their new dream life with their young baby, far away from events that overshadowed their old life in New York. And they’re happy, aren’t they? Blissfully, blissfully happy.

When Merry’s childhood friend Frances comes to stay, Frances barely recognises her old friend Merry, pureeing baby food, baking, living the Swedish dream. But little by little, cracks begin to show in her carefully constructed fairy tale. And Frances starts to see things others might miss. Dark and treacherous things.

And then a terrible tragedy unfolds…

Here’s the Friday 56 sentence below:



I recently featured this as my #WaitingOnWednesday post, which you can find here. The reviews were mixed, because of the style that is is written in, I think, more than the actual content. So it’s a ‘Marmite’ book, you’ll either love it or hate it – there seems no in between. I’m a lover not a hater lol


What did you think?
Would you read further? What are you currently reading?

I can’t wait to visit your blogs to find out. Have a great weekend, may your books be with you!

  1. I love that opening! I also really like the title. This one sounds like a good one. I hope you are enjoying it.

  2. Personally, I definitely prefer the first cover option you shared, as it is a much better fit with the premise of the storyline.

    I love that very first line, so original and designed to make you keep reading, just to find out why!

    Definitely one for my list, thanks for sharing and Happy Reading 🙂


  3. Going against the majority so far, I like the second cover. I also like the premise, but I can see how the voice could take some getting used to. Hope you continue to love it.
