In honour of Father's Day coming up and Mother's Day just past. For this challenge any book will count if it has a family member in the title. This is not the name of a person but the relationship such as brother, sister, aunt, uncle etc. Here is a link to one GR list: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/2.... Or you can go to the list search and type in a specific family member such as mother. I think my first one is going to be The Brothers Karamazov - it's been sitting on my shelf for several years! Have fun!

Connie's Family Member Books:
1)Daughter Ishbel Moore01/06/18 (I don't read a lot of YA books but this one was very good. A touching story of a teenage girl coming to terms with her mother's Alzheimer's.)
2)Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks 14/06/18
3) Chicken Soup for the Mother and Son Soul: Stories to Celebrate the Lifelong Bond by Jack Canfield 29/06/18. I thought I would have more for this one but I got distracted by other books!

Sure!"


I want to double check on this, because Brother Cadfael is the series, not in the title of the books (except for #20).

I was thinking specifically of the one with his name in the title. I wasn't sure because it is his name.

As long as the word brother or father is in the actual book title it would count.

I like adding the star rating. How did you make the star?

It's an emoji. I did it from the website on my iPad. I'm sure it can be done other ways, but that's the only way I've figured out.

Jennifer J. | 49 comments If you are on a computer can also just do a copy and paste of the one Rhonda used.
