I can barely pass one of his books in the library eventhough I force myself often. I just know that any book that he writes will be a good read for me.

Just about anything from James Patterson, new, old and/or with anyone else.  I love that guy.  Try to squeeze others in between.

I just finished "The Swan Garden" by Anne Biggs. Although a novel, it is based on her birth mother's journals of her experiences in a Mother/Baby Home, the laundries, and of her life after. It was one of those good reads ; I couldn't  put  it down until I finished.

Love Susan Branch's books. Just read "Isle of Dreams". She writes her books in her own handwriting with photos and quotes. Very witty, inspiring and fun.

Great to see you again Diane!  Of course I knew you didnt stop reading.   I try hard to not let this thread die, as it really is my favorite.  Sue (Doglover)  is a prodigious reader so she is instrumental in keeping us going.  I will endeavor to keep you and Pam around by hook or crook haha!

 

A friend gave me Love is Eternal by Irving Stone,  about Mary Todd Lincoln.  It appears Stone is out of fashion right now but his historical novels are a joy to read in my opinion.  I have ordered several books from the library and will report when I get them.

@nyadrn   I just did a little internet search to learn more about books by authors Karen Harper & Jenny Milchman.  I will be looking for some of their books at library - thanks for mentioning them.  At the moment, Jenny Milchman's "Cover of Snow" particularly appeals, as a possible good read.

 

Karen Harper does historical novels, which generally appeal to me, especially if written by a female author. I don't like that I favor female authors when reading fiction, & I do try fiction by male authors.  But I end up reading fiction almost exclusively by females.  (Think I've previously mentioned one male author that I do read, Bill Pronzini, who writes the "Nameless Detective" mystery series.)  

 

I may pursue "Justice For Bonnie".  Can only take so much of that type topic/tragedy.  I read & then step away - the actual family & friends of such victims don't have that luxury, of course.

 

Thank you for the kind remark about the summaries I do - took me by surprise!    Pam
