Default The Girl on the Train

Just downloaded The Girl on the Train to my nook. Just finished some James Patterson and I'm now caught up on Vince Flynns books about Mitch Rapp. Waiting for Kyle Mills to pick up where Vince left off.

I heard that was an excellent book. You will have to let us know your thoughts.

I purchased the book Go Set A Watchman but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I have been taking college courses so it kind of absorbs all my reading time for now. I do plan to crack this book open soon though.

I'm enjoying "The Martian", wanted to read it before seeing the movie. Because of the cover I can really see why Matt Damon was selected to play the lead. Love the details and the humor.

While waiting somewhat impatiently for the next installment (The Winds of Winter) of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, I found a new book by Martin called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, which takes place about 100 years before Game of Thrones. I just started it, but I am definitely enjoying it so far.

Just finished The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain. It was a bit too formulaic for me. I wonder if anyone has read any of her other books, and if so, what are your opinions of those?

Finished City of Women by David R. Gillham. Takes place in Berlin during WWII. Really gives you a feel of what Berliners went through.

I just finished "Missing, Presumed" by Susie Steiner. It is a wonderful British mystery, like the ones written by Ruth Rendell and Elizabeth George. Great leading character, intriguing plot and a good ending. It's the author's first book, and I can't wait for more!

I finished The Book Thief several weeks ago. Really enjoyed it but it took me awhile to get into the narration by the "reaper". Last night I finished The Nazi Officer's Wife. Of all the WWII books I have read, this one might be the most descriptive of what it was like in Germany, let alone what it was like for a Jew hiding in plain sight.

You know the scary thing for me reading these books is that I see parallels between the Nazi propaganda and some things that have happened recently or are ongoing in the US. The Nazis told their lies long enough and loud enough and people believed them.

Just read Death on the Prairie by Kathleen Ernst. A Chloe Ellefson Mystery. Great for Laura Ingalls Wilder fans. Lots of fun details about her as well as history in general.

I have been in several book clubs over the years. I enjoy it tremendously.
It's great to be with other book lovers to discuss things. I like a book club that has a few rules, like no more than one book by the same author each year and no more than 500 pages . We actually meet in the cafe at the local Barnes and Noble. Food is available and no one has to clean their house!

This question makes me curious about other people's book club likes and dislikes.

I have loved books forever, however I just read my first one in years! I just can't seem to sit long enough to read, but I love Mitch Albom so I read The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto.

I'm a very fast reader and go through several books a week! Thank goodness for the library!

Right now I'm reading a British mystery series by Judith Flanders. There are three so far: A Murder of Magpies, A Bed of Scorpions, and a Cast of Vultures.


The hero is a feisty gal in her 40's, Samantha Clarke (Sam) who is an editor for a publishing house in London. She is dating a detective, and they get involved in all sorts of murders. British mysteries don't tend to have as many gory details as American fiction, which is a plus. There are a lot of interesting details about books and publishing, so I'm loving the books.

I just finished reading Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. It was an Oprah pick. It's, of course, a very dark story but the writing is excellent and it's very compelling.

I also read The Wonder by Emma Donoghue. Part mystery and part historical fiction

The story is about a young girl from the Midlands of Ireland who has not eaten in four months and yet looks to be relatively healthy. The religious are claiming she is a miracle and the skeptics that she and her family are cheats and liars. To decide the point, an English Florence Nightingale trained nurse together with an Irish Catholic Nun are tasked with observing whether she is eating or not over the course of two weeks.

I would love it if people could put at least a short plot summary of their book recommendation. It helps me decide if I want to find out more about the book.

I haven't wanted to read that. I don't want those ideas about Atticus Finch in my head. I understand a lot of black folks look at "To Kill a Mockingbird" as the typical white savior story and don't revere it as much as many white folks (like me) do. Tell us what you think.

I'm in 'cowboy' romance mode. So I'm reading a lot of Carolyn Brown books. Just finished Honky Tonk Christmas, which is part of a 4 book series. Great fun and very entertaining!

A Man Called Ove (2012), by Fredrik Backman. A man grieving for his recently deceased wife constantly is thwarted in his attempts at suicide and peeved by his HOA, his neighbors, and bureaucracy. After all that - a fun read!
