Noir

Dawna Raehpour (dawna1221) I’m not sure I can narrow it down to one book! I adored Love Does by Bob Goff, Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown, and Tell Me More by Kelly Corrigan.

Linder (lvs1) | 1 comments Ok I feel free to cheat. I too cannot pick just one favorite book.
In nonfiction I was captivated by “ Hero of the Boer War, a Daring escape, and the Making of Winston Churchill” by Candice Millard. Despite the boring title, I found this hard to put down because Churchill’s escapades seem too bizarre to be true.

I have read several Jodi Piccoult books. “ Small Great Things” is my favorite. It made me think about my own biases regarding race. Very timely.

A pure thriller was “The Woman in the Window” by A. J. Finn. Reminded me of Hitchcock’s Rear Window. Don’t expect to get anything done when reading this.

I just read the “old” “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes. It was poignant, sometimes funny and very thoughtful. It surprised me how timely this book, published in the 50 ‘s is today.
