What are you reading?

Does anyone have any good book recommendations? I'm finishing up "The Testaments" by Margaret Atwood. I highly recommend it, but now I'm looking for new suggestions.

 

Thanks!

Rachel

 

P.S. I saw this post on AARP.org recently. It has some recommendations for new books. Check it out: https://www.aarp.org/entertainment/books/info-2020/spring-books-preview.html?cmp=EMC-DSO-NLC-WBLTR--...

I write a blog giving recommendations for books about adults over 50,RipeReads.net I just finished a fun book called The Lager Queen of Minnesota by J. Ryan Stradal, and am now loving reading A Year by the Sea by Joan Anderson.

@UpperHandsPiano Fantastic blog! Great reading list.  I'm going to check out some of your recommendations soon!  Did read "The Midnight Library" and enjoyed it.  Just started "The Golden Notebook" , long, over 600 pages.  An awfully big bite to tackle.

@AARPRachelA  I just finished "Essentialism" by Greg McKeown, and it really is a wonderful book.  It talks about how we use our time, and how we might want to reevaluate that.  Highly recommend.

Well, I'm late to this party, and reading everything Diana Gabaldon has written (Outlander series and more). She has a new book coming out around thanksgiving 2021 too!

 

Also reading a few historical novels from Beverly Jenkins and a number of books on Smashwords where downloads are especially inexpensive and offer a wide variety of genres.

More in line with health, I've just read:

1. Dodging Energy Vampires by Dr. Christiane Northrup

2. The Empath's Survival Guide by Dr. Judith Orloff

 

I highly recommend them both to shed light on your business and personal relationships.

If you like Margaret Atwood I suggest Isabel Allende.

 

Daughter of Fortune followed by Portrait in Sepia.

I'm re-reading the Arab Table. It's a cookbook, but has stories related to the different recipes, and how they differ as you travel through the Middle East.


My husband is Arab, and I love the peek into his culinary culture..
