Have you read anything great lately?

Have you read anything great lately?   So many of you are avid readers…please share your suggestions!  

My most recent fave is Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah. A sweet story of friendship and unconditional love.

Cindy LOVED The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  Amazing characters with depth and conviction in a turbulent time in the South. So well-written.

 Recently heard these are great (but haven’t read yet):

 A Pigeon and a Boy by Meir Shalev

 Between, Georgia by Joshilyn Jackson

 City of Thieves by David Benioff

Please share your recent favorites or any book you’ve loved!

    Thanks for this great opportunity! I love to give and receive book titles. I am almost through with “The Help” and I love it. Just read ,”This is Where I Leave You” by Jonathan Tropper. Well-defined characters, beautiful writing style and sooo funny. If you find family dysfunction during a 7-day shiva funny, (which I do), you will love this book. Also just read Wally Lambs, “When I first Believed”. Painful material, so well done. Don’t read it at Tiffany’s while getting a pedicure or you might make a blubbering fool of yourself as I did. But the woman working with me was really nice about it. Even game me tissues. Can’t wait to hear book titles from all of you. Enjoy your weekend! Rebecca

    Received the novel, Brooklyn by Colm Toibin as a gift. Found it to be a poignant evocative story that takes place in the early 1950’s following a young woman’s migration from Ireland. Beautifully written, compelling, and uplifting despite loss and lonliness. Loved it!
