The Nightingale … it got me reading all the amazing WWII historical fiction books. Now I’m obsessed.
I was at Borders Books before they went out of business and found my first book by Pam Jenoff called The Kommandant’s Girl and that got me started reading many more amazing WWII historical fiction books!
Me, too! My favorite read this year.
I started reading Dick Francis when I was 14. He combines England and horses. Win. Win.
The Great Gatsby because of Fitzgerald’s writing and the storyline itself. On the outside, it seems like a typical love story but Fitzgerald makes it so much more. Also, The Girl from Berlin series because it got my creative juices going, allow me to formulate my own series, and pushed me to finally start my writing career after years of putting it off.
Chick lit are my cuppa
Right now today The Last Time I was Me by Cathy Lamb, (who does like a book about a woman running naked by a river? To get over her anger management issues?) The Marriage Lie, by Kimberly Belle (because I love the ending), The Long Way Home, by Charles Martin(because it touched my heart and made me ugly cry) I could go on and on but these are some great and wonderful reads!
Before We Were Yours.Very sad but great story!The Life She was Given.Another great book!And of course The Nightengale.I never read books about wars.Just not my thing.But this book had me from page 1 until the last page
I like most kinds of books except romance and science fiction and I especially like variety not the same kind all of the time.
I love reading different types of mysteries especially historical, the puzzle of it, thinking figuring it out?
My latest fave The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
Every so often a love story comes along to remind us that in our darkest hour, hope shines a candle to light our way . Heather Morris does a wonderful job telling the true story of Lale Sokolov.
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman, and Dollbaby by Laura Lane McNeal. All 3 of these books are set in the south and have strong, quirky female characters. I seem to have a thing for that in my reading. All 3 are excellent 5 star books in my opinion. I highly recommend them.
I have too many favorites to list. I love to read!
@Deb what is your top 3 or 5 then
J.D. Robb-In Death series, J.A. Jance-Joanna Brady series, Heather Gudenkauf, Kristin Hannah, J.T. Ellison, P.J. Tracy, Cody McFayden, Greg Iles just to name a few.
Books by MJRose, Linwood Barclay David Rosefelt, Lisa’s Gardner, Unger and Scottoline, all fantastic authors any one of their books are great. Also Mary Kubica.
Tuesday’s with Morrie by Mitch Albom, Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walsh, The Crucible (yes, it’s a play, but still writing) by Arthur Miller, and Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. They all hold a special place in my heart, either because of the story, the subject matter, or simply the way they made me feel.
