Rose Ann | 29 comments I am currently reading Belong to Me A Novel by Marisa De Los Santos, and I'm really enjoying it! I loved Love Walked In, which is the prequel to Belong To Me.

Rose Ann | 29 comments I am going to start The Thirteenth Tale A Novel today.

message 3: by Valerie (new)

Valerie I'm reading "Pearl's Secret" by Neil Henry. It is the story of a black man searching for more information about the white ancestors in his family line. I'm reading it for a book club. It started out good but I lost momentum and now am having trouble getting back into it.

Terence Hawkins | 1 comments I'm reading American Rust, by Phillipp Meyer. I'm either the best person or the worst to review it because it's set in my home county in Western Pa----called here, and in reality, Fayette Nam. I'll let you know when I'm finished whether it lives up to the buzz. Good, for sure, though.

Jackie (thenightowl) I've been reading the Outlander Series. I'm currently on book 3: Voyager.

Rose Ann, I think you'll love The Thirteenth Tale. It's a great story for book lovers.

Hi Rose Ann...I just joined; I live in Orange. Good to see a local group. I try not to 'blog' too much as it just takes away from reading, right? I was given Life is So Good a few years ago; an appropriate gift for a tutor I guess. Haven't read it yet. Let me know how you like it. Linda/Orange

Linda | 38 comments Am looking forward to read the Henrietta Lax book. I just finished a true crime page turner called Salt of the Earth by Jack Olsen; it's an older book, well written & IMHO, measures up to any Ann Rule I have read. Linda/CT

message 27: by Linda (new)

Linda | 38 comments Wow, Megara, you've got quite an assortment. I've just finished The Widow's War by Sally Gunning for a f2f book group. I enjoyed it. It was about the many dilemmas a widow faced in the late 1700's; as a fairly recent widow, I'm so thankful I live at this time in history. I'm finishing up The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny. I so enjoy this series and read one every couple of months.
