Perfume is a great book. Too bad the movie was not that good
@Cornelia I actually love the movie 🙂 Definitely not as good as the book, but it’s where I first saw Karoline Herfurth
@Christle Really? It was one of the book adaptions that I did not like 🙁 But good that there are different opinions and tastes. 🙂 I loved “Lion – A long way home “
@Cornelia I haven’t read the book of that or seen the movie, but I need to!
@Christle I loved it, let me know how you liked it

Omy goodness. Wrinkle in Time. Harry Potter. Erma Bombeck. Earth Odyssey. Just Mercy. James Herriot Wuthering Heights. Sherlock Holmes. Rebecca. The Historian.

Anything by vc andrews or Jacki Collins. Water for elephants, divergent series, the nightingale, and FSOG series (I know a lot of people hate it but I love it).
I loved Jackie so sad that she’s gone. Gino and her both left with her last book.

1. Water For Elephants
2. The Time Traveler’s Wife
3. Fortune’s Rock’s by Anita Shreve
4. Sue Grafton’s Alphabet mystery series
4. Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
The Thornbirds. Don’t know why but I just love that book. I read it as a teenager and then also as an adult. My BFF found a secondhabd copy at a market once and gave it to me for a Christmas present. So happy.
Josie~Anything by James Patterson, Stuart Woods, Robert Parker, Danielle Steel. Although this year I’m reading nonfiction. It started out as a struggle but its reading & I don’t like quitting when it comes to reading. ?
All of Dan Brown and Sidney Sheldon. I want to find interesting romance novels too, and start digging into it.
My latest is “Beach Music” by Pat Conroy. It’s a big book but includes so many periods of time that our nation went through affecting the one family (novel, but true events).
I love reading historical fiction so this is going on my TBR list!
