Sarah | 18188 comments Finished Skin Deep, which has a character with an interezting mental health condition, for the Patty Duke tribute.


message 8: by Casceil (new)

Casceil | 2622 comments I have finished my second book, Suspect, by Robert Crais. It is a terrific book, and I highly recommend it. It turns out to fit multiple categories. When I started reading it, I figured it fit Patty Duke, mental health issues, since it is about a man and a dog who both suffer from PTSD. At some point I realized it would also fit Rob Ford, corruption. But I think my favorite category for it would be U.S. Military. One of the two main characters is retired marine dog Maggie.

message 40: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) | 1136 comments I finished my last book for this Toppler - and just got a little worried that it wouldn't fit any task (I hadn't checked before I started reading...), but then I saw 'romance' for Glenn Frey, so that is my fit!

I read: Seizoen voor liefde by Stephanie Laurens. It was okay - I'm not really a fan of historical romances. I love historical fiction, but usually with more of a story (not just: boy meets girl, they fall in love, but before the happy-ending a lot of stuff happens...). But this one was a fast read - and so very good for a Toppler! :)


message 41: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahlou29) | 1302 comments I'm on my phone but I finished Alice Through The Looking Glass. It was a short book but it took me a little while to read I just couldn't get into it. Read it for the Harper Lee tribute for a classic.
