Read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn many years ago.  Think it is past time for a re-read.

Nice selection of books to think about, I'm such a reader ,so love the recommend ones.  I'm currently ready, The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelidles. A new category for me, I usually read historical fiction. But, my first for 2019 was When the lights go out by Karen White. I love her books, too. It seems I'm all over the place. Hope everyone has a wonderful reading week. 

Reguards,

Judy

Right now I am reading "Verses of the Dead" by Preston Douglas and Lincoln Child.  This book is part of a recurring series featuring Aloyious Pendergast, a Sherlock Holmes type FBI special agent  The series started with "The Relic" and is already around 17 books!  Doug Preston provides the action and Lincoln Child provides all the amazing details!
