“The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend”, by Katarina Bivald

I really have been reading… I just have not been writing. Every time I get behind, I can’t remember anything. That was the point of starting this blog! Trying to actually remember what I read. I can read whole series and not remember characters names. It’s not that the books are not memorable, it’s me, not them. I ask my kids what kind of sandwich they want , walk in the kitchen and cannot remember. It might be a problem. What do you take for that? Omega-3 fatty acids? Ginkgo biloba? What even are those?

This book is about a late 20 something woman named Sara, from Sweden, who is visiting Broken Wheel, Iowa to visit her pen pal Amy. When she gets there nothing is as she planned. Sara is an avid reader, worked in a bookstore, and has always preferred books to people. Will this little town in the middle of nowhere break her out of her shell, and change her life forever?!

Whew! I recently drove through the entire state of Iowa , and hit horrible snow storms , there and back. So I am actually not a fan of Iowa, at least not in the winter. (In hindsight, it was a poor choice to even attempt driving across the country in the winter, so my bad Iowa). This book was ok. It was long. There were a few things that I felt dragged on. It had a happy ending, but it was not so happy throughout. It kind of felt like all the adults were struggling with an identity crisis. Drama. Overall afterthought, so much angst.
