The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald

I don't normally read translated works.  But I highly recommend this one.  If you didn't know that The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend was written by a Swedish author – you would never have guessed it.  The book is set in rural America and as far as I could tell didn't have a Swedish flavour at all.

It's a charming story about a woman who is a penpal with an old lady and is invited to visit.  She arrives only to find that her friend has just passed away.  She ends up staying and finding friendship from the small community.  I won't say anymore about the story because that would spoil it for you.

The main protagonist is a book lover too – and there's a bookstore – do I need to say more?  Give it a go


  1. Sounds like a perfect cozy read.

  2. I've read a couple Swedish authors and really enjoyed them. This one sounds reall good too.

  3. I have this from Netgalley! I will get to it at some point :) thanks for the review.

  4. I am reading this book now and really like it.

    A very cute story.

    I didn't know it was translated.

    Thanks for your post.
