Where does the time go?

Don’t know about you but lots of mine is spent reading.


My favorite of the last few months is the sequel to Nobody’s Fool by Richard RussoEverybody’s Fool.  He is one of my favorite authors and I really enjoyed this trip back in time.

I have also become a big fan of Fredrik Backman and his latest Britt-Marie was Here was much enjoyed.  And liked Helen Simonson’s new title The Summer Before the War – she is the author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand which I loved and this one is a bit more complex but has some great characters and gives you an interesting look at a particular place in England in the summer before WWI.

Read a really interesting non-fiction book about corpse dogs – not what you think – they find them called What the Dog Knows by Cat Warren.

Enjoyed Elly Griffiths latest – The Woman in Blue and found a new mystery author – David Taylor that I really like – his first was Night Life.  I am looking forward to the next one.  Also enjoyed The Promise by Robert Crais – made me wonder why I don’t read more of his.

And finally got around to Chance Harbor by Holly Robinson and liked this one as well as her others.  Looking forward to seeing her in the fall with a new book.

SO – how about you.  What book have you found that you couldn’t put down?

  1. Just finished Brooklyn by Colm Toibin for the Clinton Sr. Center book club. Didn’t want to read it because we just finished North River, but I ended up enjoying. Also reading The Arc of the Swallow by Sissel-Jo Gazan, the author of The Dinosaur Feather which I read a few years ago. It’s 582 pages and has a lot of scientific information, all accurate, but it’s not difficult at all.

  2. I also read The Summer before the War.
