Hey, yay for the new thread for this year!
I did a lot of travel and got a lot of reading done. Recently, I have read:
Bodies Left Behind
by Jeffrey Deaver - a thriller I borrowed from my mom. Not my usual fare, but it was okay. I really liked the twisty ending.
The Day I Ate Whatever I wanted
by Elizabeth Berg. I'm a big Elizabeth Berg fan and really enjoyed this collection of short stories. Appropriate for this board, there were several stories about weight/weight loss. There were also good stories about love, aging, relationships. I really liked it!
Hour I First Believed
by Wally Lamb. Wow, this was a thick, meaty TOME of a book. It is kind of hard to describe, the author talked about Columbine, trauma recovery, prisons, slavery, addiction - it ended up spanning several hundred years (due to some recovered letters). I found it very very readable, could hardly put it down.
Book of Dahlia
. An extremely unlikeable character gets cancer and the author peels back layer after layer until I felt sympathy and like I really knew her. Also, the author could really be hilarious.
- medics in Harlem. Very gritty - like The Wire for medics.
I am currently reading Toss of a Lemon
. I liked the first half, but it's dragging a bit. Not sure how long I'm going to keep fighting through it - plenty of other stuff waiting on the shelf!
