My husband tells me, “again? really? you already know what happens”. My answer is, “exactly. but every time it is still just as satisfying”
@Stacey Its like watching a favorite movie over and over….only much better.
@Kim You get me! 😉
Stacey Joldersma Gonzales Totally! I’ve been known to read a large portion of a Jane novel, then watch the video on Amazon Prime up to the point I just read. You see the pattern don’t you? ??
@Kim OMG! I do the same thing. Well only with P&P as I have yet to read the others. I am determined this year to read them all. I have Sense and Sensibility next on my list, then Northanger Abbey. I am nervous of Emma because I didn’t really enjoy like the movie and so I will leave it for later.
L❤’VE Sense and Sensibility!. I love them all! Emma took me a while to get into but I ended up liking it a lot, though not my favorite J.A.
Mansfield Park is fantastic too…and Northanger Abbey…and …Lady Susan..and..and…

Read this book a number of years ago. I was on an angel trek. Remember it fondly.
Now for the sequel…..
Flat broke with two goats – Jennifer McGaha. A big library read selection.
Just finished reading Red Joan by Jennie Rooney. Great read if you like espionage.
@Lori I do like Espionage! I’ll check it out.
My library is doing that as the big library read too! Is it any good? I was thinking of checking it out.
The writing is ok but the content really isn’t of my interest… I’m about halfway and hoping it picks up some…
I have to say, it is kind of neat having so many people reading the same book at roughly the same time for this big library thing. Not sure how I never heard about it before … I love the idea of this so that does add some incentive to the reading the book… it’s kind of exciting in a geeky kind of way? lol
A Desdth in the Small Hours by Charles Finch.
Just got “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah.
@The by Diane Ackerman
I heard that that is a good book. I am just finishing up “The Lilac Girls” and that is good.
That’s my next book!?
Voyager, the third book in the Outlander series
Finishing “The Passage”
Every Note Played – Lisa Genova
What do you think so far? I just finished?
Alysia Brown Greene it’s very good so far. Have read a few others of Genova’s and liked them but am particularly enticed by a concert pianist as a main character. What did you think of it?
I enjoyed Still Alice and Inside the O’Briens. I had to pause and reflect on this one to really enjoy it because it’s a much different type of story arc than what I’ve been reading. No real climax, plot twists or turns, but just a beautifully told unfolding of a traumatic disease and it’s impact and progression. I gave it 5 stars.
A Gentleman in Moscow
Outlander: half way through and not sure I can keep going. The story line is possibly not for me.
I had some trouble with the first one too. By the end of it I felt it was “okay”…. but so many people I know loved the series so I decided to try and keep going. I’m half way through book 3 and LOVE it 🙂
@Marie thank you for your response. I don’t normally read romance books, but due to the great reviews I thought I’d give it a go.
I read about chapter and couldn’t get into it
@Melissa I’m page 340, I kept thinking it would pick up, but the story line seems to have stayed much the same.
If you don’t like romance the series may not grow on you. There is a lot more to it going forward (book 2 is very political – in a good way) but the romance is always there
@Kerry I can’t stand a story that drags… too impatient and add
@Marie romance tends to irritate me sometimes. Especially corniness. Lol
The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
Ken Follett’s World Without End. I read Pillars a few years ago but it didn’t matter that it had been so long, Follett sucks me right back in and I am immediately involved- love his writing!
Hum If You Don’t Know the Words by Biana Marais
A Thousand Splendid Suns
The Underground Railroad
If You Ask Me by Betty White

Not yet, looks interesting. I’m going to see how I like this book of his and then I might add to my list.
Boys in the Boat for book club.
Louise Harris so far I like the story. It’s got way more detail than I need — but I know how to skim.
In our four years of book club, this was our best discussion!
Love and Gravity by Samantha Sotto. So far so good.
The Last to Let Go by Amber Smith.
Just started The Dry today. Definitely not my usual genre but I’ve heard such good things about it figured I’d give it a try ?.
I just finished that today. Loved it!
Woman With a Secret by Sophie Hannah and Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. I’m almost finished with Magpie Murders. Both books are pretty good.
The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner. Good!

@Lynn I just started, i’m only about 30 pages in but so far so good

Finishing the last chapter of Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology and probably beginning either Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand OR The Miniaturist.
My goal is to get halfway through Wicked and then finish up Watership Down!
Reading Salt by Marcus Kurlansky and Both of Us by Ali Smith for my RL book group…
Really enjoyed Salt!
@Victoria Love when I find a read that surprises me. Now interested in his book about Cod…

$tarted Watership Down.
Ordinary grace by William Kent krueger
Because of a suggestion from this group, I’m reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato. Peel Pie Society and loving it.

I didn’t want that one to end!
Loved Guernsey L and PPPS! Looking forward to the movie, which comes out April 20, though of course it won’t be as good as the book. Even so . . . . 😀
I’m reading Tom Hanks’ new book of short stories, called “Uncommon Type.” So far, so good!
Radium Girls by Kate Moore.
I heard good things about that book! How are you liking it?
It is superb, heard the author speak and just had to read it.
@Rhonda I just added it to my want to read list on my goodreads app. Thanks?

Just started The Hate U Give—it’s a good read

The Mother of Black Hollywood, A Memoir by Jenifer Lewis
The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley (a Flavia de Luce novel).
The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
This is on my list, I’ve heard it is great
Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie
I’m wondering if I’d like Agatha Christie. Do her books read as current or seem dated?
@Alysia try And Then There Were None. One of my favorites!
@Zoe, I’ll add to my GoodReads. Thanks.
@Alysia I only started reading them 5 years ago (I’m 43) and can’t believe I waited that long. Her writing is smart and witty. Murder on the Orient Express and And Then There Were None are two of my favorites so far.
Hope you like it! ?
And they seem a little dated only in some of the language and social conventions, but her writing is timeless.
Excellent! I’m looking forward to them now.
Her books hold up splendidly, in my opinion. Look at them as historical novels, not just mysteries.
I read them all 35 years ago…over about a year. think I might try them once more. Since I am old enough to have forgotten many of them.
A trick of the light by Louise Penney. (The 7th in the Inspector Gamache series.)
Just finished Beneath A Scarlett Sky by Mark Sullivan. One of the best books I’ve read this year.

Priestdaddy by Patricia Lockwood
Saga, Volume 1. Brian K. Vaughan.
Oracle Bones by Peter Hessler
Just finished You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day. I’m not a gamer nor even a big internet type person, but I really liked this book! The audio version is read by the author which, in this case, makes it engaging and lol funny in places. I recommend it!

HOw to Behave Badly in Renaissance Britain by Ruth Goodman. Very entertaining.

Amy Snow by Tracy Rees
The Woman in The Window – A.J Finn
I’m also reading The Woman in the Window and I’m liking it more than I thought I would.

@Vicky I agree but with a modern twist.

Pride and Prejudice for a book club, and research papers on Toni Morrison.
The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron
The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai
The Chalk Man
Almost finished with The Immortal Nicholas by Glenn Beck. This is not a book I would have chosen but my sister gave it to me with a great recommendation. I will admit it is pretty good.
One Goal, by Amy Bass It is a wonderful book about a community, soccer team, racism, immigrants, and how a small Maine city (close to where I live) came together. ❤️
“Cross and Burn” by Val McDermid and “Queens of the Conquest” by Alison Weir.
Sing, Unburied, Sing Jesmyn Ward
Americanah by Adichie

Absolutely awesome book.
the silent corner by dean koontz
“The Power” by Naomi Alderman.
Just started “When Red is Black” by Qiu Xialong, the third of the Inspector Chen mysteries, set in 1990s Shanghai. Love these books. Though China has changed much since the ’90s, they provide a fascinating look into a transitional period, as well as terrific mysteries populated by really well-drawn characters!
A bit of histfic and an audiobook , back and forth
The Great alone
Envy by Sandra Brown It has good reviews, but some of the characters are really annoying…
Paris for One, Jojo Moyes.
The Vampire Lestat
For the first time or repeat?
@Patricia actually for the first time I have only ever read Queen of the Damned and Blood and Gold so I have decided to start them all in proper order ?
So, you have read Interview with the Vampire? It preceded The Vampire Lestat in publication by 10,or 11 years, and if memory serves, Lestat himself makes reference to it in the introductory section of The Vampire Lestat. But, you can read it second if you like. I was given Realms of Atlantis to read and then went back and read the rest, in chronological order based on publication. It took me about 9 months to get through all of them, but it was well worth the time spent. Anne Rice is a fabulous author.
@Patricia yeah I did just finish Interview with the Vampire before starting The Vampire Lestat.
“and the vampire stopped.”
I’m just about finished with Origin by Dan Brown which is a great read and next on my TBR is The Immortalist by Chloe Benjamin.
blood trail by tanya huff
Finishing THE END & beginning SUN FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN–I love this group! Had no idea so many people were addicted to reading like me!!!

The Book Thief
My sister Rosa
The Sunday Philosophy Club by Alexander McCall Smith
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest
Rich Dad poor Dad
Almost done with On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins. Then must peruse giant stack of library books to choose next novel. Still have 2 non fiction books to finish too: Prairie Fires (about Laura Ingalls Wilder and Rose Wilder Lane), and 12 Rules for Life.
Monica Owens I am a huge fan of the Little House books, have read almost everything else by or about Laura, and visited most of the sites where she lived. Prairie Fires has been a tough read, partly because it disturbs some of my illusions about who Laura and Rose were. It’s as much a biography of Rose Wilder Lane as it is of Laura Ingalls Wilder. It’s not sentimental or particularly flattering about Laura or her family. But it has been fascinating. There is a lot of American history (also disturbing) in it: the westward expansion, removal of Native Americans, massacres, destruction of land, the Dust Bowl, politics, and literature. Some of it makes me profoundly sad, but I am glad that I read it – I’m nearly done. Some of the most touching information is about Almanzo. It’s well worth the read.
Sula by Toni Morrison
Station Eleven, bookclub selection
Just finished Before We Were Yours.
I loved this book!
On my TBR list
I read that last week – really enjoyed it. I did not know the true story of that “orphanage” before. I read a little more about it after – many famous people adopted children from there, including Joan Crawford
Didn’t know about Joan Crawford. Interesting.
