Ok, bear with me everyone. My thoughts are scrambled. I will try to give as much detail as possible, unfortunately I might be thinking about two different books. So i will just list the things i do remember and I sure hope someone has read it and know what I am talking about. I loved this (these) story.. have not read it for a long time, but I was discussing great books with a co-worker and told her about this one but the title eluded me...
Here goes:
The time period is not present day.. much earlier.
There is a woman, sister?, the everyone in town talks about, she was disfigured. left her legs messed up but she still walks, she actually teaches ballet to the towns girls, a handful 5 or 6. She holds this class in the third story of the mansion in a dance studio, plays the victrola... they say her dancing a slightly grotesque.. there ended up being a fire...
I wish i could remember more, but basically if you read it, you would have remembered her, she sticks with you ..
I am thinking that there was talk she had a child too, a closed off nursery.. ?
I would love any help, even something remotely close would be awesome!
Thanks Everyone.
Keeping my hope up and fingers crossed.

There is a great group on here called "Whats the Name of That Book?"

They are pretty good at finding books you can't remember titles or authors.
Just make sure you put something descriptive in the Title of the thread you'll get more people looking at your thread and therefore more people helping you look for the book.
Good Luck!

Please help!! Started in a rural setting with a girl who hunts for her family who is pretty ungrateful for everything she does for them. I believe she accidentally hunted a fae/wolf and a “beast” came to her house demanding justice. So she went to go live with him and ends up falling for him and she also saves him from this evil queen.

It’s a fantasy, enemies to lovers, beauty and the beast spin off.

Please let me know if you know the name or author!!

Hello everyone! I'm not sure anyone gets on this thread, but I need some help! I read a book a long while ago, and I can't remember the title of it! It was about this girl who was an angel, and I THINK she befriended a girl who had cancer. Also, the angel kept mentioning that if an angel does something good or completes a task, they get a special charm on a bracelet.

I´m looking for a book. I can´t remember the exact plot. All I remember is there was this woman who was a high-end prostitute, and she lived in a two story house with another woman who was manlier and served as her bodyguard. There was a man that would always come see her and was her favorite client. She got paid with jewelry but she would always hide her expensive jewelry and wear cheap one. She had pale skin and wore a red kimono (I think). Her favorite client would often come see her from really far away on a (white?) horse.

I cant remember the title of a book Ive read years ago. It took place back in the western times and it was a romance novel and it was part of series. All i can really remember is that there was a young girl who ran away with the guy that she loved but he was a trouble maker. and this was a young adult novel. Please help me!!!!!!

I loved mystery books for kids -about middle school age - probably
written in the thirties or early forties, written by a British author.
I think the titles started with "the clue" - about a group of children
who solve the mysteries themselves. There was always a map.

~There is a scene they go to a spa

Hi everyone! I really need your help. I read a book about a girl who lives with her mom, but she is an alcoholic. She falls in love with her boyfriend's borther, who is an alpha male character. He has a group of friends that like to do illegal things on Halloween day and use Army of Two masks. Is an adult novel, it has sex scenes and violence. It was an interesting story if you like dark romance I recommend it. Unfortunately I don't remember the title and I would appreciate it enormously if someone knew it. Thanks in advance.

I never got to finish reading this book but I remember some bits and pieces from it. the book i’m looking for is about a girl, who in the beginning, she’s working in a cafe then she gets this weird business card from this dude, and like she accepts it. and like she gets recruited to join a team of teenagers with powers?? kinda like hers was the ability to “read” ppl and their personalities (i think) and i also remember her love interest was the guy who gave her the card in the beginning. and i remember there was a description for each of the teenagers there and one of them was an asian girl. and like during their training they went to a mall and analyzed people?? it was kind of a popular series in middle school but i can’t remember the name. that sounds like a terrible description but i’ve searched everywhere.

Help! it's a book from my childhood,late 80's, young teen book. a kid goes to a new school and there are many problems. a kid that has all the lockers and the main character can't get one. then the main character tries to become the school president and has a campaign out of his locker. it's all about his problems and trying to take the school back from the first guy. i'm pretty sure it was a scholastic book. not a lot of details but....maybe someone can help

Looking for a BDSM Club Book Series - two Doms, owners of club likes secretary but did not approach her, she then leaves then comeback to find a Dom. Thanks

So I have this scene that keeps playing over and over in my head and its driving me nuts if anybody could help me that be great.

What I can remember the book is an MC book. The main character has a really ugly past and he keeps running from it. He starts dating a girl and his past all of the sudden comes back to haunt him . so in order to protect his girlfriend he fakes his death. he has a twin siblings that nobody knew about and his twin is dying from cancer so they switch places. The girlfriend stays at his side while he is dying thinking that it's her old man. eventually the twin dies from the cancer having the people from his past think that he died. she finds out that she is pregnant while he is dying of cancer. The baby is born and the same day he dies from the cancer. Her old man comes back years later to protect her because people from his past still wants to hurt her and his kid. That's all I can remember. I know it's not much but if someone can help me that would be great!

I know this is going to seem really out there but I’ve gotta ask. Do you 90s baby’s remember a book about a girl who lives with her two aunts, she goes to a festival in town and falls in love with a handsome young man she meets there. They are quickly married and have a son. Shortly after her son is born she wakes up at her aunts house and is told that that was all just a dream by her aunts. She is treated with she is crazy. After three years She accepts that what happened was nothing more than a dream. She accepts a position as a nanny to the new kings children. She becomes close to the youngest of the kings (alleged)bastards. Although there is a rumor one of the children is legitimate the child’s identity is kept secret from everyone and the children are treated equally. (As the king is expected to marry a duchess soon and her children will be expected to sit on the throne) The future wife of the king is forced to spend time with the children but the king is not present because of matters of state and wedding prep. The future wife treats the nanny and the children poorly and when the future wife hits the youngest son of the king the nanny flat out smacks her. This causes a huge commotion that has the king entering the children’s wing. As she is explaining that the future wife hit the small child, both she and the king recognize one another. He was the man she married and had a son with four years ago. He embraces her and tells her they told him she died in child birth giving him a son. They wed after he sends the duchess packing.

Hello, I am hunting for a book about which I have very little information. It was published in the lae 70's or early 80's. It was fiction, with a red cover. The title was "Sula," or something similar - a girl's unusual 4 letter name that started with S. The title character was a young girl who lived with her father (I think her mother had passed away or was gone), and she gradually succumbed to mental healh issues. ny information you have would be welcome.

Someone was looking for the title of a book with elves and a dragonfly. The title is Heverly by Kevin Yagher. I hope this helps! I couldn’t find the post but I think it was feb 2020. My kids loved this book!!

One I am trying to remember.

It’s a best friends brother romance.

The friend is super close to the family (with the parents almost acting as surrogates). Anyway he first scene I remember is the brother and friend back on a college break and the friend consoling a crying sister after a bad prom date.

Then I just remember them having a secret relationship whilst she is in college and they would visit each other secretly. Anyway at some point they break up / take a break because the friend is unwilling to come clean out of fear of losing friend and surrogate parents.

Then I just remember the climax where the mother is rushed to hospital and whilst everyone is there the mother on deathbed tells the friend she knows about it all and gives her blessing.


Trying to remember a book which I thought was written by Joy Fielding but can't find it in her repertoire. She's written on similar lines (The Other Women) and this is about a smart lawyer who lives in Florida with a dashingly handsome psychiatrist who also happens to be controlling. He seems to sabotage her career by making her late for meetings etc. He has a daughter by his first marriage who is a little so-and-so but comes good later. She also has a sister who married a much older man who has a heart attack and dies. Parents are totally screwed up.

If someone can help I'd be very greatful.

I'm looking for a book that I've read 3-4 years ago.
That's everything I can remember:
A girl has to come back to her old hometown because her mother, who is an alcoholic, ran away, and left her siblings alone. Her boyfriend cheated on her shortly before her departure.
She doesn't want to go home because she hates this town and the trailer she was living in.
After she comes back she has to find a job. And because she can't find anything else she becomes a stripper.
She meets her neighbour, who is a mechanic.
He also comes to the club and she dances for him.
Only later we get to know that he is blind.
And he lives alone although she thinks that his mother is still alive.

Sorry for my poor English!
I hope you can help me find this book.

She meets a old woman who we find is a witch and she sends her back in time. When she wakes apparently she is in coma. Can you help I read a long time ago and I don't remember name.
