Last year I joined the 2016 Reading Challenge presented from The Modern Mrs. Darcy. I read everything on that list with the exception of War and Peace. That was my 'book that intimidates you'. The intimidation continues. I started it, but it just hasn't captured my attention yet, but I'm going to give it the old college try once again.
Today I'm sharing a few titles I really enjoyed in the past 6 months or so:
The The Lake House by Kate Morton.
Just finished this one. I listened to it on audio and LOVED it. Great story, loved the narrator's accent, the well-developed characters and probably one of my all time favorites although that list is pretty long. This isn't a classic, but a really good read.
I'm presently listening to Quail Crossings and so far, it's getting two thumbs up too.
I read Still Life, the first in a series by Louise Penny and am looking forward to reading the next installment. I like mystery and suspense, but I do not like gore and bad language, and this has neither.
I also enjoyed A Man Called Ove,
loved The Nightingale,
The Life We Bury
Whistling Past the Graveyard
Just seems like I've been picking up stories I've really enjoyed lately. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, and News of the World are up next!
