The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem by Sarit Yishai-Levi
Rate this book
Clear rating
I love Jerusalem, so the title, which seems incongruous, intrigued me. The story is well written, although the protagonist—and it's a little hard to tell who that person is because of all the bouncing in the story—is an absolutely horrible, totally n ...more
The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem by Sarit Yishai-Levi
" I was disinclined to read a book about a beauty queen, but the author is Israeli so I looked beyond the title. I discovered that it's a family saga that partly deals with the period before Israel was a state. My grandmother, who was born in what..." Read more of this review »

At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon

I'm only thirteen years late reviewing this one, but I'd never picked it up until my book club chose it for our December meeting. We've been reading a lot of heavy stuff lately, and no one wanted to drag corruption and war and other chaos into our Ch ...more

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
"I seem to be finding myself in the minority a lot these days. The first half of this book was pretty close to marvelous, and then it went south on me (that is a pun). Anyway, after my attempt at weak humor, let me resume in a serious note to say I..." Read more of this review »

The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg
"The Story of Arthur Truluv is one of those novels that, in my personal lexicon, I refer to as True Life Novels. I know them by how the characters and the incidents in their lives are authentic, sympathetic, cover a wide range of topics, are almost..." Read more of this review »

Snap by Belinda Bauer
by Belinda Bauer (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Setting aside the whole Man Booker issue, Snap was only an “okay” read for me. I didn’t love it, and I didn’t loathe it. I also didn’t engage with the characters very much and found some of the plot to be contrived. There are other thriller/mystery w ...more
" I cross-country skied through stands of these today, Richard, and whatever you call them, they’re beautiful. "
Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James
" Really enjoyed this book. Hope that you do too. "
