What book are we reading this month
I just started In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. I’ve heard mixed reviews so I don’t really know what to expect!
I didn’t find it scary, like it claims. But I did like it.
I liked it. It was a good mystery.
Yeah…it didn’t wow me but I liked it. Was waiting for the wow factor and never happened
It was okay.
One of my friends told me it was good but I haven’t tried reading it yet
I’m reading Erotic Stories for Punjab Widows.
On my TBR list
I liked it @Laura.
I just started “the wife between us” by Greer Hendricks and Sarah pekkanen
I’ve read it and it’s really good
I liked this one.
Got an advance copy when it came out and still haven’t read it yet…it’s on my TBR pile.
The Sisters of St Croix by Diney Costeloe
Husk by J. Kent Messum. Just started it.
Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari. Funny and informative. Enjoying it!
I’m currently reading charm bracelet by Viola Shipman
I’ve been pretty tied up with it being canning season, but I’m making my way through “ My Dear Hamilton” by Stephanie Dray.
are you enjoying it?
@Patti yes….I really liked her first one as well.
Patti Taylor Is she enjoying canning or reading? I like to do both, too. 😉
@Robbie …lol! Yes I do enjoy both! I’m a weird duck….I love to can!!!!
Just started ‘Fates and Furies’ by Lauren Groff. I’m slightly confused by it though ?
I’m reading “The Prisoner in the Castle” a Maggie Hope mystery. Came out today
I’m reading A Man Called Ove and listening to Annabel on audiobook
Can you let me know how the man called Ove is
I’m looking forward to reading this one! It’s on my list next!
I’m reading There, There…by Tommy Orange
Just discovered Linwood Barkley’s Detective Duckworth. Would have been better in order. Starts with NEVER LOOK AWAY.
Started Yestetday : Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman Not bad so far
It started out making me not like Eleanor, but I’m glad I stuck with it…one of my favorites of 2017.
I finished that last week. Not one of my favorites, but I enjoyed it well enough.
Just finished Firefly lane and just started the last Mrs parrish
I just picked up The Outside by Stephen King at the library. It’s been years since I’ve read a King novel. I’m very excited.
just started this one
that’s a great read 🙂
I liked that and the one after it.
I just got the sequel from the library today
Just finished An American Marriage. Tough.
I really liked it…though the main characters, especially Celestial made it hard to root for them.
@Liz and Andre. Just a tough situation and the waning of love was so sad.
@Jonie my favorite character was Big Roy!
@Liz mine by far!
The Underground Railroad
Loved this book!
Charles Martin ” The Mountain Between Us”
I’m gonna start this series after I finish WMC
@Terri it’s a page Turner!
Most if his books are
To Die But Once (Maisie Dobbs series)
Just finished The House among the Trees, Judith Glass and starting Sometimes I Lie.
Trying (and failing mightily) to finish Speak by Louisa Hall so I can devour The Binti Trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor.
The husbands secret but I hope the plot picks up after the letter is revealed
Liane Moriarty is a genius
I had already started Where’d you go Bernadette? (Paper book) and Never let me go (audiobook)….. and Then The Alice network and I’ll be gone in the dark came in from my library holds….. so, finish those first then the other two. I want to finish them all by the end of the month, before school starts!
Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Red Notice by Bill Browder
The Other Woman (Danielle Silva)
Love in the Time of Cholera
The Idiot Brain, Go Set A Watchman, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara

That’s next on my list
Finished one my teen girl recommended – The Invention of Wings. Now completing one my YA son sent my way – Little Fires Everywhere. Both very different.
Little Fires Everywhere is great! I could not put it down!
@Yvette I couldn’t either but had to go to camp (tents, while stuff in, etc) and it’s my son’s book so I didn’t want to risk damaging the hardcover version. He’s very picky about his books! I even have to be careful about cracking the spine too much!
I’m reading Eunice: The Kennedy Who Changed the World by Eileen McNamara.
Finishing The Concrete Blonde by Michael Connelly and then starting Louise Penny’s next novel on my TBR list.
Finishing A Rule against Murder; the rest of the month will be 3 or more from the TBR pile, don’t know which.
Right now I am reading The Time Traveler’s Wife.
I loved that book!
Book club read: Lucky Boy
Homeplace by Anne Rivers Siddons.
Just finished The Power and I’m starting Erotic stories for Punjabi Widows.
Book Club read: A Town Like Alice by Nevil @Shute
I listened to that a few months ago and enjoyed it. The first part was better than the rest, in my opinion, but it was a good book
Shute has such an original style and I loved the whole book – our club is reading it because 2 of us are huge fans. I look forward to finding out if the others finish it.
The Alice network by Kate Quinn.
@Erica I’m listening to that now ?
If you can find a way to see the Masterpiece Theatre version of this with Australian actor Bryan Brown, it’s excellent.
One of my all time favorites
Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton I’m hoping to finish it this week though
Cassandra Clare books (my goal is to read them all)
My book club is reading The Tuscan Child
Just finished The Second Girl by David Somebody
Just started American Pastoral by Phillip Roth
Just now finished an advance copy of Virgil Wander by Leif Enger, and am still enjoying the afterglow. So good. I never read his first one, Peace Like a River, but I have it on my Nook now.
Peace Like a River may be my all-time favorite. I don’t recommend it often for fear people may not like it (it’s not for everyone) … but sounds like you will ?.
The Light We Can Not See!!!
I’m currently reading The Dressmaker of Khair Khana. It is beautifully written and so profound.
Reading The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware.
The Enchanted Forrest Series
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Book club-Pearl that lost its shell
I’m trying to read The Ministry of Utmost Happiness for book club. It’s work. I’m trying to get 25 pages read every day, but I am just not enjoying it.
After The God of Small Things I don’t EVER have to read anything by Roy again.
@Liz I know. I tried to read that book too. I was sad when this one was chosen.
Ashley Bell by Dean Koontz. My first fiction book in 20 years.
Homo Deus; Yuval Noah Harari
The death of Mrs. Westaway.
Behind the Gates of Gomorrah – Stephen Seager
We Were the Lucky Ones
I really like this, but I think it was because it was based on a true story (with some necessary fictionalization). That made is remarkable. I’m not sure I would have felt the same if it was pure fiction. Interested in your take!
@Lynn I just started the book. We’ll see what happens.
THE ART OF THE WASTED DAY, by Patricia Hampl
The Radium Girls
Alone in the Ocean by Slava Kurilov

How is Privo Levi’s book?
Right now, The Nightengale. Last week it was Carnegie’s Maid. Both great.
Day before yesterday The Angry Tide. Today, A Piece of the World. Also, the letters of Theodore Weld, Volume !! – picking, choosing and skimming those.
Listening to The Book Thief. Reading The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend.

Summer break gives me a lot of time to read. Just finished 2 really good books: Part of the Furniture by Mary Wesley (WWII book by an author who started writing novels in her 60
Thank you! I’m 43 and feel like I’m losing my chances to publish; I needed to hear this!
Oops: Mary Wesley started writing in her 60’s and is well know in England. I really enjoyed her writing. And Finding Mary Blaine by Jodi Thomas is a really good romantic suspense novel set in Austin TX
A Tree Grows in @Brooklyn
Vanity Fair by William Thackeray
American Pastoral by Philip Roth
Do you like it?
it was slow getting started but after about 50 pages I have really gotten into it and am liking it. I am about 1/4 of the way through. It’s my first book of his. I tried reading The Human Stain in the past but couldn’t get into it. I’m reading this one for book club so that helps in making me stick with it.
Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao
Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger
