Someone on KP recommended Robyn Carr's The View from Alameda Island, but someone had it out of my local library. I decided to read another of Robyn Carr's books - Any Day Now. The main reason I didn't care for it was that it was written in "today's world". What I mean by that is cell phones and FaceBook were referenced, so the reader was reminded what time period the story is set in. Also, it touched on alcoholism and other dependencies. Just not my "cup of tea". I like to read books where you can't tell what era it is set in. I do have The View from Alameda Island now and only just finished Chapter 1. Not sure I'm going to like this one either since it has to do with infidelities in marriages. Maybe some people like reading about that stuff, but not me. My all time favorite book is The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.
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.
