The Betrayal… I couldn’t put it down!
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon
“Storm Glass” by Jeff Wheeler (Fantasy). What was yours??
@Emmeline The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Sadie by Courtney Summers
The Silent Patient
@Kay sounds intriguing
It’s so good! The twists kept coming at the end ?
Wonder. ??? Such an emotional read. Then I watched the movie and sobbed through it.
@Gretchen who is this book by
Chronicles of the One series (both books).
The Roanoke Girls
Six of Crows.
Soulless by Gail Carriger. I had seen the book for a bit and always suspected I’d like it, and now that I finally bought it and read it, I’m glad I did. It is a fun read, with werewolves and vampires and a bit of steampunk too, mixed with light humor, so nothing takes itself too seriously. Totally enjoyed it.
I had pretty low expectations when I read “Soulless” a few years ago, but it turned out to be a fantastic read!
@Emmeline I think I did too, which is why I put it off for so long! But I’m glad I read it! Something light and fun is great every once in awhile, and I absolutely loved her eccentric cast of characters.
@Mar the characters are great. And yeah, it’s nice when no one takes themselves too seriously sometimes. 🙂
The blackbird of the gallows!
Bad Games by Jeff Menapace

I think it would be one of my favourite books of the year as well….though a long time left for that.
Birdbox. I watched the movie then found out it was a book. Of course the book was 1000x better. I enjoyed them both, however.
The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory. It was so cute and happy. Just so easy to read. But so was The Wedding Date. ❤❤❤

@Emmeline it’s so good, and the books are quite long too so you can really get lost in them ?

The Alice Network
Foundryside by Robert Jackson bennett
I have to pick 1? I’ve read 4 in January which is a lot for me but it would be a tie between the tattooist of auschwitz and a dogs purpose. Can’t decide between them.
@Savanah-Ray I’m afraid I’ll cry the whole way through A Dog’s Purpose! I have it but…. good to know it is a favorite!
Oh you will cry! I did! Several times! But it was totally worth it!
I’ve read 13 books in January and while I can’t say I was blown away by any of them (really hoping I have a knock-me-out-of-my-seat great read in Feb), I will say that Pippi Longstocking was my favorite. Can’t believe I went through an entire childhood never having read that gem of a story.
Maude by Donna Foley Maybrey
Norwegian by Night by Derek Miller.
The Binding by Bridget Collins
Beneath a Scarlet Sky
@Michele I loved that one!
Me too! I might suggest it as an option for my book club to discuss!
Flawed by Cecelia Ahern, wasn’t expecting it to be as much of a page turner as it was.
Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran. It was the last of the Egyptian royals trilogy and the best IMO.
That sounds super good too.
Educated by Tara Westover ?
@Ashley I listened to that one. I really liked it but I thought it was just a little too long but that’s just me. I always get to the point in memoirs when I’m like ENOUGH already let’s wrap this up.

@Stephanie one of my all-time favorite series ?
