I just finished reading "Flight Patterns" by Karen White & highly recommend it.  She is one of my favorite authors and this one did not disappoint. 

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on Friday

Finished Everything I Never Told You (Celeste Ng) and I highly recommend it!  Now trying Test of Faith by Christa Allan.

Comment by Vilma/AR on Friday

Lately, I have been listening to audiobooks, read some of Chonda Pierce, also known as the Queen of Clean.  She is a Christian stand up comic, very funny and inspirational.  She will make you laugh and cry and truly relate to our daily life.

Read Found by Karen Kingsbury and The Penny by Joyce Meyer.  Both excellent books. 

I have an audiobook of Fannie Flagg, "Standing in the Rainbow".  I am saving it for a road trip. 

I pick up audiobooks in estate sales and pass them on to a friend and let her pass in on to somebody else.

Carol, I have read everyone one of Fannie Flagg's books & highly recommend all of them.  I also loved the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes", which is based on one of her books.  Quite often I don't care for movies that follow the release of a book, but this time they did a good job.   I will have to see if my library has any books by Celeste Ng.

Has anyone read anything by Celeste Ng?  I've just started "Everything I Never Told You".  Someone recommended it to me and so far, it's really good.  Oh, I just checked and it's her debut novel; about a mixed Chinese/American couple living in suburban Ohio in the 70's.  Their middle child, Lydia goes missing and is found drowned in a nearby pond.  Really good so far.

I haven't ready many of Fanny Flagg's books but just finished "Can't Wait to Get to Heaven" and found it very enjoyable.  She does have a unique writing style.  I'll have to try the one you recommend, Janet.

I thought of you yesterday, Amanda, when I picked up two Betsy Devonshire mysteries from the library. One is new and I think the other is an older one that I missed along the way. I agree with you about novellas and short stories. They always leave me feeling unsatisfied and wanting more.

DD's boyfriend gave us a book on Ruth Bader Ginsburg for Christmas, Notorious RGB. DD read it and really liked it, so I'll have to read it, too.

I just finished reading "The Whole Town's Talking" by Fannie Flagg.  I enjoyed every minute of it & highly recommend it.  She has such a unique writing style.  The books has funny moments & sad moments, but all told it was great.

It is good to hear that your grandmother remained in contact with her siblings, and had a good life, handstitcher, I remember your crazy quilt, it is a treasure.
I don't really like the novellas, either. I have never liked short stories, I like to stay with a story for a long while. Short stories don't have enough time to have you care about the characters, or the events, usually.
I am still re reading the Fannie Flagg novels, and listening to the Betsy Devonshire needle craft mysteries on audio books. Plus, when I need a break from those I am reading bits and snatches of the next Cat Who mysteries.

Amanda, fortunately, things did turn out well in the end for my grandmother and she was always in contact with her siblings, even though they lived in different towns. There's a small black, gray and white crazy quilt on my page with photos of my grandmother and siblings as children and again as happier adults.

I read the last JA Jance book about Joana Brady last week. She'd added a novella before it that I've missed. I'm finding more authors are doing that, probably to save costs, but the novellas can be difficult to find and usually aren't in the libraries. Frustrating!
