I recently completed 6 of Pam Jenoff's Books, the last one being The Kommandant's Girl and am on to #7. I especially love her books because of the historical background.
I am curious to know what people are reading - (All Over the World), as I am always looking for my next 'good read', in between knitting.
I just finished all the Grantchester Mysteries by James Runcie. While the PBS television series Grantchester is based on them, these books, all of which are actually collections of short stories develop some different story lines. Sidney Chambers is still the central character and is just as endearing, but while you might find echoes of some of the television plots, these are more cozies.
the best book I have read in years is "I am Pilgrim" by Terry Hayes...............set in now time....no history.
The Girl in the Blue Beret - goes back and forth between present day and WWII France - pilot shot down inn France.
Not far into it - quite good.
Just read for one more day (sic) by Mitch Albom. Quick read, food for thought.
Would you believe?.........
The Friday night knitting club by Kate Jacobs
it is a light easy read as I started chemo this morning - I need something like this. Normally I read a mix of biographies fiction & historical base fiction.
The Oysterville Sewing Circle by Susan Wiggs. Not too far into it yet.
Where the crawdads sing, wonderful
Just finished Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver.
Now on the library’s waiting list for Testament by Margaret Atwood..... I am number 54 in line for it 😕
I just finished All the Light We Cannot See, a Pulitzer prize winner and one of the best books I have ever read. I have just start Grisham’s The Reckoning.
I like all of her books too. I just finished a series by Patricia Harmon about midwives during the Depression and WWII, very good. I read a lot of WWII books, Diney Costeloe, Maureen Lee, Jennifer Robson, Jacqueline Winspear, all great authors. You can't go wrong with Kristin Hannah's Nightingale. Happy reading.
The oysterville sewing circle by Susan Wiggs, love her books
