Read North Carolina. Where the Crawdads Sing -- I loved this exploration of life in the marshland on the coast of NC. I have read Pat Conroy's book The Water is Wide a few years ago, and although that one is non-fiction I still found many similarities between those children and Kya, the protagonist of this one.

5 stars.

Reading this in August for my book club. Glad you could give it 5 stars.

Just finished Gilead, which was slow, quiet and beautifully written. I gave it 4 stars.

Anyone have a good recommendation for Hawaii?


message 12: by Rosemarie (new)

Rosemarie | 273 comments If you like long books, I recommend James Michener's novel Hawaii. It covers the whole history of the islands up to the time the book was written.

I was going to recommend the same book. I have not read it but hear amazing things.
