message 4: by Stacy (new)

Stacy Brackin (stacybrackin) I really enjoyed Finding Dorothy, by Elizabeth Letts. Very insightful on how women were treated in the last part of the 19th century, as well as how actors were treated on movie sets in 1939. We all know who Judy Garland is.. well the things she had to go through to keep her role, unbelievable. I cried in a few parts of the book. Anyway if you are looking for a good read, I re
commend Finding Dorothy.

Gretchen Frazee | 1 comments I'm currently reading Girl Woman Other by Bernardine Evisto. I highly recommend it. It portrays the experience of black British women and the author won the Booker Prize last year.

Orlaith | 1 comments I just finished Nightboat to Tangier by Kevin Barry and I loved it. It is sprightly and full of Irish quips and dark humour. A gorgeous poetic fluid narrative too.

message 9: by Deepak (new)

Stacy Brackin (stacybrackin) Anything by Kristin Hannah. She is an amazing author.


message 15: by Luise (new)

Luise (luswordjournal) If you search for a Book with a strong female character, I would recommend “The Lady’s Guide To Petticoats and Piracy” it takes place in the 18th century around the world and tells the story about Felicity Montague, whose biggest dream is becoming a doctor. (That was quite a long sentence, I am sorry)

message 26: by Karishma (new)

Karishma | 2 comments "The Water Dancer" by Ta-Nehisi Coates was a great read. I also recently finished "Where the Crawdads Sing" and I normally wouldn't have picked it up but I enjoyed it (warning, there is a lot of marsh description).


message 27: by Abhilash (new)

Abhilash | 1 comments I did read a thriller fiction book by a new Author, titled, The Curse To Ashwathama. It is good and nice read, and takes about 3-4 days if one is on it. Though author should have taken care while getting the book cover designed (gives an impression that it is a mythological book), but actually it is quite nice modern day mystery thriller that matches 1990's bollywood style movies.. Moreover, the book did remind me of the phrase "Don't judge the book by its cover" :) ...

Violet (lucyibaldwinicloudcom) | 8 comments Wow! I think those books look great! I wil be sure to check them out!


message 29: by Barbara (last edited May 17, 2020 06:42AM) (new)

Barbara (barbarainhouston) I just finished The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. It is a novel, but based on real characters, the Grimke sisters, Sarah and Angelina, who were early abolitionists and feminists. They are less well known than many others but quite amazing. Most of the book is based on their life before this activism, when they lived at home in the southern U.S. in the time of slavery, alternately told from Sarah's viewpoint and from the viewpoint one of the Grimke's slaves. I like that at the end, at least in my copy, Sue Monk Kidd clarifies what elements in the story are based on fact and what are purely fiction.

Aakash Singh (aakashdweep) | 3 comments Anyone love to read Hindi books.


message 31: by Lydia (new)

Lydia Dean | 1 comments I can recommend you read this book "One Caregiver’s Journey by Eleanor Gaccetta". This book heartfully captures the moments between caregiver and patient, between daughter and mother. It is also an insightful book that digs deeper into caregiving and provides practical suggestions that anyone can use to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their loved one.

You can check the book here: https://www.onecaregiversjourney.com/...

I can recommend you The Priest’s Graveyard by Ted Dekker. It is a very powerful and stirring story of both the devastating power of law and rules can wreak on our lives, as well as the healing and restoring power of love. It’s also one of the unique love stories that transcends all others.

I have never read the book but it never hurts for a bookworm to learn anything new, bookish or not. Would you enlighten me with what it’s about, and whether it’s got anything sexy I should be aware of? I’d recommend East by Edith Pattou to you. The main heroine’s courage that defies great difficulties will inspire you, hopefully, to face our trying time with the same manner as hers.
