I finished listening to Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh, one of the strangest stories I’ve ever read. Highly recommend and here’s my review.

I’m now listening to Sulfur Springs by William Kent Krueger, Cork O’Connor #16.

KathyB  (kathybrown) | 684 comments I'm currently listening to Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins.

I think it might have a little romance, but probably would be considered Women's fiction. I'm about 10% in and enjoying it, so far so good!

She used to write straight romance and has recently shifted to Contemporary Fiction (hate the term women’s fiction) with some romantic elements. I really liked this one and hope you continue to enjoy.

Agree on term women's fiction aka chick lit. There's also men's adventure or d!@k lit.

I finished Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and enjoyed it. It was not as I had expected but it was still a good story. I wanted more and I felt as though some of the story fell a bit flat for me.

I started Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn Sharp Objects There is suppose to be a limited series coming out on HBO of this. Let's see how this plays out.

I loved Sharp Objects. I thought it was a great book with a very good narrator. It's pretty gritty though. Looks at some tough subjects.
