What’s on your To-read pile?

Finally getting some summer weather so time to haul out those books that you have been meaning to read all year, find a cool spot and a chilly beverage and enjoy.

I just got two that I am really eager to read.  The final book written by a very favorite author – Kent Haruf.  It is a small book so will have to be read slowly – Our Souls at Night.

A few years ago when The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was introduced, it was my very favorite book of that year – recommended and shared with everyone I met.  It was written by Annie Barrows’ aunt, Mary Ann Shaffer,  and when she couldn’t finish it, Annie Barrows stepped in.  Now she has her own book, The Truth According to Us.

So what’s on your list?

  1. I just read Our Souls at Night. I’m so sorry we have lost such a writer.
    I would recommend Girl at War by Sara Novic. This is her first book and it is quite good.

  2. Read The Truth According to Us – she used many of the techniques from the earlier book – letters, etc – and she got me enough invested in the characters that I was extremely disappointed in how she handled one of them – won’t say which one because I don’t want this to be a spoiler – but this wasn’t the love fest book for me that The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was.
