Full disclosure: This is more so I can find good books to read! 🙂
This could be read a book or listen to an audible book. I would ask that you give the book, author and a blurb about the book in a comment because I’m always looking for new books.
At the end of the month, there will be a blog post where you can share a link to your blog with your book review or you may leave a comment in that post with your info. Thanks.
Just finished The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. It’s a psychological thriller. Very good read.
I just finished that book too – it was great!
Dana White’s two Decluttering books are GREAT!! I got them as ebooks and read them during a plane trip. The first one, How to Manage your House without Losing your MInd, really points out the value of routine in the home. The second one, Decluttering at the Speed of LIfe, explains her methods and how to make the decluttering count the most.
Woohoo! Those are both available at my library, in different formats (media).

I read both of them a while ago….they were very related.

I’m an avid reader and here are a few I’ve read and liked this year: Educated by Tara Westover. It’s a memoir about a girl who goes from a dangerous family situation to gain a college education and freedom. Great story! The Mountain Story by Lori Lansens. Four people find themselves lost on a mountain. It’s really good! The Dead Key by D M Pulley. A mystery centered around an abandoned bank. Enjoyed this a lot! The first two were book club selections
Do we start in January? The only problem I see is that I’ll be adding to my already long ‘to read’ list. ?
Pride, Prejudice and Other Flavors
The Book Thief
The Dutch House
Late Migrations: a Natural History of Love and Loss
The Alice Network
Can’t remember the others I’ve read recently.
I loved The Book Thief!!!!

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson
I also read Educated but had way too many questions…and I did not find the story plausible….at least there seemed too many holes in the story as to how she could go from a hovel to the Ivy League.
Sherry V., I agree with you on Educated. All of my friends think it is the greatest and speaks so highly of determination and education, but I just don’t think it is plausible at all. I read it when it was first published. Later I read somewhere about someone who was from the same area as she and knew the family and said it was highly fabricated.

What kinds of books do you like to read? I don’t like science fiction and I am not too fond of the really romantic novels. I do like a good “who done it” though. I think I just like trying to solve the mysteries before they reveal them. I have come pretty close a few times and it is fun to guess who really did it and why. I also don’t like a lot of torture either. Just a good old murder mystery. I get most of my books from Kindle and I love reading them at night before I go to sleep. With my Kindle I don’t have to have the light on because I can read it from the back light of the Kindle. I think I have already read 2 books this month!
I just finished The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks: romantic, not smut, from a man’s perspective.
And now I am reading Finding Chika by Mitch Albom. It’s about a little girl from the Hatian orphanage he runs.
Sherry in NC says
I think I’ve read all of Mitch Albom’s books except that one and they all made me cry. Nicholas Sparks is good, also. Have you read The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks? It goes along with The Wedding.

Then you, Nelle, should read the Charles Todd books (mother and son co-op authors). Ian Rutledge is about to start on #22 in Feb. – post WW I – great character and wonderful mysteries. They also write the Bess Crawford WW I and after nurse mysteries – another great character and stories. If you haven’t read Anne Perry’s series, there’s Inspector Monk, set post-Crimean War, the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, set right smack in Victorian times, and newer Daniel Pitt (son of Thomas and Charlotte – and a lawyer!) and (pre-WWII Europe) Elena Standish. So if you’ve never read those two authors, you have some catching up to do! The novels are good about not being the same story told over and over.
The Mother in Law by Sally Hepworth. This is so much more than the title implies. It’s about relationships and why we do the things we do, even thought it may not outwardly appear that way. LOVED it!
Audible book, Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger. I loved the narrator in this book!
In 1961 Frank Drum, a 13 yr old with a strong, loving family is devastated when a tragedy forces him to face the unthinkable – and to take on a maturity beyond his years.
