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--...

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.

I've been reading some great new novels featuring older adults. Most recently The Love Story of Missy Charmichael, and currently Mornings With Rosemary. Both are really good books, intelligent and filled with the wisdom and concerns of mature adults. Check out my book reviews for older adults on RipeReads.net!

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..
