Melissa I loved *Victoria* by Goodwin... I also read *Victoria* by Julia Baird at the same time (coincidentally) and absolutely LOVED reading both a fiction novel and biography together. It was a lot of fun and so enjoyable. The biography (Baird) was even more interesting and compelling than the fiction (Goodwin).

Stephanie Burke Being Mortal is such an important read! Loved it!


Olivia "So many books--so little time."" I found Goodwin's Victoria a five-star read because I learned a lot about the young Queen. In her youth she was not the prudish, priggish Queen she is remembered as.

Totally agree

Angrboda The book itself doens't even slightly grab my fancy, but Soul at the White Heat has a splendid cover!

Hi! The art featured on the cover is called paper quilling and the artist most probably is Yulia Brodskaya which was made famous on the web thanks to this paper craft about 6 or 7 years ago.

I highlighted and wrote notes in the margin of my copy of Being Mortal and gave it to my son who will be the one helping make a lot of those end of life decisions with/for me.


message 8: by Emely (new)

Emely "The Tunnels" by Greg Mitchell is also out in paperback since October 16th. Surprised that it's not among these 24 choices.


message 9: by Ian (new)

Ian Is this site -and indeed contemporary fiction as a whole - now the exclusive preserve of women?


message 10: by Abel (new)

Abel “s this site -and indeed contemporary fiction as a whole - now the exclusive preserve of women? ‘

Sadly, that’s what occurred to me too as I looked through the list - and if the people commenting are a reflection of the readership/membership the answer to your question is ‘yes’.


message 11: by Ian (new)

Ian Thanks Abel. Encouraging to know I'm not the only one trying to row against the tide in this insane world.
