Need a good read please
which genre ?
do you like a specific genre?
Historical fiction: contemporary fiction: Brit chick lit
Fall of Marigolds A Marriage of Opposites Both excellent historical fiction
Will download marigolds read opposites and loved it
Atonement, the Goldfinch, a very long engagement
a not so dense book called The curious incident of the dog in the nighttime – haddon its hilarious . brit but not chick
I loved that book
I’ll download a sample thanks?
@Jean I wasn’t sure until he began knocking on doors . “do you know who killed wellington?” too funny
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. You will love it!
I just downloaded these two. They’re said to be really good in the historical fiction.
Read them both they were FABULOUS
How about All the Light we cannot see by Anthony doerr? Or the Zookeeper’s Wife, or Little Bee by Chris cleave? And if you somehow missed it, Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd is amazing.
@Julia read two of them. The other two are too sad?
I’m guessing Little Bee and Zookeeper’s Wife are the sad ones? Let me think. How about Remarkable Creatures or Fallen Angels by Tracy Chevalier?
Zoo and Light
Or you might like Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Lessons, it was very good.
Bee was weird
Oh I loved Bee, though I thought the ending was terribly sad. You might like his newer book, All the Brave are Forgiven.
I am reading a few.. J.D. Robb – Echoes in Death, Sophie Mckenzie – Close My Eyes .. both good!
Will look them up
Love the JD Robb seriees!
Read Iris andLily then. SO good!
OMG that is a great suggestion. Is it out now??
I just ordered it fromAmazon and read it last month. Apparently, there are three volumes. I read volume one and absolutely loved it. I plan on reading the other volumes eventually.
The book in the middle is historical fiction. It is the best read ever. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.
Double thumbs and all the warm fuzzies up!
Loved this book!
It is hard to recommend books if you don’t know someone’s taste. I always give gift cards to my local independent bookstore to people as gifts. I love anything by Barbara Kingsolver, Celia Ahern, Amy Tan, Lisa See and Alice Hoffman. I also love Pat Conroy, Anne Rivers Siddons and the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith.
Here are some other favorites I have read: Pamela Callow – Damaged; Blake Pierce – Trace of Death; Angela Marsons – Lost Girls; Twenty-Eight and a Half Reasons – Denise Grover Swank; Angela Marsons – Evil Games; Angela Marsons – Silent Scream; Kristina McMorris – The Edge of Lost; Rochelle Weinstein- the Mourning After; Alex Lake – After Anna; George Wier – The Last Call; Mary T. Bradford – My Husbands Sin; Liane Moriarty – The Husband’s Secret… Hope that gives you a start!!! 😉
The Husbands Secret was so good.
Invention of Wings
The Traitor’s Wife
The Other Boleyn Girl
Thank you all for your kind responses. I am downloading now ??????
my favorite book is Sing Me to Sleep by angela Morrision if you want to check it out
British chick lit: Vanessa Greene, Lucy Dillon, A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff. Historical fiction: Oil and Marble (Leonardo & Michelangelo.
So many choices…what did you read last? Did you love it?
I am almost done with The Jewel in the Crown. It is a struggle, but I am determined to get through it. Not a lot of plot.
I’m finishing The Nightingale and I absolutely loved it!

The Museum of Extraordinary Things
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by John Ford Sarah’s Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
Read Sara buy not Corner. Thanks
My mom keeps telling me to read Hotel. I’ve lived less than a mile from the actual Hotel in the book for 15 years… so maybe I should.
“A man called Ove” finished it last week but still got a hangover
Reading Iris and Lily was torture. I am reading Faithful. Keep those titles coming
