books to be read

snowy day in Royston Georgia

While we are waiting on spring, we can catch up on our TBR pile of books.

Books to be read, piling up on my nightstand (well virtually in my Kindle)

Gray Mountain by John Grisham. A novel set in Virginia, small town lawyers fighting big coal companies over mountaintop mining.

Grandma Gatewood's Walk by Ben Montgomery - I can't wait to escape into this one, according to local lore, she walked right by our house, well long before there was a house here.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova- A book to movie, this blurb caught my attention: At once beautiful and terrifying, Still Alice is a moving and vivid depiction of life with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease that is as compelling as A Beautiful Mind and as unforgettable as Ordinary People.

Stitches by Alice Lamott -I have not read anything of hers yet, but the description sounds great!

Recently finished:

Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson- Every morning she wakes up not knowing who or where she is. Did you see that movie 50 First Dates where Drew Barrymore had that same affliction, that was funny, but this one is definitely not, a thriller from beginning to the end, also a movie yet to be seen.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - A wild ride with this psycho chick. Saw an interview with the author, her father-in-law read the book and called his son to tell him to sleep with one eye open.

How to Make Money Blogging by Bob Lotich - Couldn't resist this freebie!

What are You reading?

I just finished listening to Sarah's Key. It takes place in France, July 1942. French police round up Jews and sadly, the rest is history. It was a very sad book all in all. What do you recommend as cheerful?

I recently got caught up with Kathy Reichs & Nevada Barr, now I am catching up with Sue Grafton, then I will hopefully like Marjorie Eccles. I purchased her Gil Mayo series after liking the TV adaptation.
