What was the last 5 star book you read??
Woman in the window
Really, was it really that good. What about it made you feel it was a 5 star?
@Kim I’m not into this type of genre so if it keeps my interest that’s a plus in my book…. lol I liked the story line. It kept me interested. I liked the struggle she went through but still had a need to help others. “ doctors make the worse patients “ mentality….. she couldn’t see that alcohol was ruining her. I liked the thriller side to it because it made me believe that she really was hallucinating. And usually I’m able to correctly guess the ending, I guessed wrong.

So where does all the hate for this book come from, @Kim? Any theories? I haven’t read it yet, but I’m curious and baffled, and would love to hear your thoughts on it.
@Dustin, I truly don’t know. Maybe that it is a very small book for the price. I totally loved it, one of his best as of late. Merry Christmas to you and yours! 🌲
That’s possible. I know it’s less than two hundred pages; a novella. What is the publishers price? I am encouraged that you think it’s one of his best in recent years. I am so far behind in recent SK. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
We did buy one copy at HPB. Think it was 15.99. I read it on kindle. ❤
Yeah, that’s a little pricey for what you get. Kindle was probably a little more affordable.

Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes
Here Be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman
@Kim great book. Found it years ago on a remaindered table at Borders.
@Tina I so miss Borders. I remember all the MANY wonderful books I bought as they went out of business. I have used a Kindle since though really now for six years.
I picked it up a few months ago. It’s on my TBR list
It’s wonderful! I didn’t realize it was the first in a series til I finished it (all 704 pages) :).
I’ve read Elizabeth Chadwick’s wonderful books about the Marcher border lords, but this was the first book I’ve read that focused on a Welsh Prince, Llewelyn the Great, who married King John’s oldest daughter, Joanna.
I’ve already put #2 and #3 on hold at our local library and can’t wait to read them!

Also April fools day by Bryce Courtenay # for those who haven’t read it – it will feel life affirming

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. So interesting and beautifully written. My last 5 star of the year so far!!
I read this about a week ago…. I have to say the first 6 chapters I was bored but I stayed with it and really enjoyed it.
It was one of my top 2 favorite books last year. I loved it!
Certainly one of my best books of previous years. I am currently reading The Last 100 days of JFK. Not so ‘clever’ but equally fascinating.
The girl on the train
I really enjoyed that one!
