BOYS LIFE Robert McCammon
The Heart’s Invisible Furies. John Boyne.

Fiction: “A Night Without Stars” by Peter F. Hamilton
Non-Fiction: “Destiny of the Republic” by Candice Millard
Kite Runner or East Of Eden.. Can’t decide between these two
The Witches of New York by Ami McKay.
Probably Bird Box for sheer entertainment and quality writing. But I was very glad to have read Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance as it was most unusual and magical.
The good daughter, The Outsiders, My sister’s keeper
Loved My sister’s Keeper.
The Outsiders is my all time favorite book
The hearts invisible furies. Not my typical read, but man did it grab ahold of me.
Illuminae or Strange the Dreamer
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
The Pretty Stolen Dolls series

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
The Amish Teacher’s Gift.. by Rachel J Good..
That is one of my all-time favorite books.
It was really good. I can’t believe I waited so long to read it.
@Kelly, did you get hooked really quickly? I think I knew right away it was kinda special.
Yes. I didn’t think I would. I love stories of human endurance. It makes me recognize that I am capable of doing more than I think.
@Kelly I love how you said that. We probably all need that reminder every so often.
Force of Nature
Strange The Dreamer. Read it
When breath becomes air
I’ve read 73 (3-4 were novellas) so it’s impossible to say. One of the books that stuck with me the most was My Father’s Paradise: A Son’s Search For Jewish Past in Kurdish Iraq. It’s not in my top 5 for the year but it’s so memorable for me and it was very educational. A fantastic memoir about Iraqi Jews native to the Middle East who were expelled from their country and exiled to Israel, a foreign land that they never wanted to live in (remember: Zionism was created in Europe to solve a European problem so most Middle Eastern Jews had no concept of it.) it’s a biography yet doesn’t read like one. Unless you now for sure that it’s a man writing about his father, you would think it’s just a historical fiction novel based on real events.
The Glass castle
I finally read that last summer. It was really good but that girl’s parents made me so angry.
The velvet years
American Gods by Neil Gaiman.
Alone in Berlin by fallada
