I am reading "The Last Mile" by David Baldacci.  It is a sequel to a book called "Memory Man".  The main character suffered a catastrophic head injury while playing football & now he remembers everything.  He ends up helping the FBI solve murders.  This is one of those times when it would be important to read the books in order.

 Oh don't worry about it at all, Janet. I saw it was coming out last fall and meant to read it all along.  If I read the reviews before I had picked it up, I still think I would have read it, thinking that they were wrong and that any book by her would be great. It is funny that we had such different opinions on it!

I still haven't found a book that is really grabbing my attention right now. :0(   I am still reading at least five different ones, and I hope to go to the library tomorrow to see what is new.

What have you all been reading?

It makes me feel bad that you hated that book so much Amanda since I recommended it to you.  I loved it.  Isn't it funny how 2 people can each really love the same books some times & not other times?

Oh dear I can't believe I am saying this, but I absolutely hated The Whole Town's Talking!!! I didn't think it would be possible for me to not like a Fannie Flagg novel. I found the beginning okay and then it just went totally down hill. I wonder if it was ghost written or if there is something wrong with her. Honestly, I found it just awful. I am going to try hard and forget it, or it will ruin her other books for me. I think this is supposed to be her last novel, and that will truly be a shame, to me. It was the same feeling after I read Go Set a Watchman. I really wished I hadn't read it, but what can you do after you already have?

I just re read Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty, which was almost as enjoyable as the first time I read it, which was only in the fall. Her books are so hard to put down.

Now I am looking for something else fantastic. I am reading at least four other books right now that are okay or fine, but nothing gripping, yet.....

I was surprised by that, too, Janet!

I loved the first Mary Russell\Sherlock book, Kathy, I forget to look for the next one. 

I think that is my favorite of Fannie Flagg's books so far. I went to the library after work yesterday, and they had The Whole Town's Talking, so now I am in the first few pages of it. I love starting a new book, like the start of a new adventure.

My friend Michelle loved the Ann Perry books, but so far I have never read any of them.

I too, loved the book "All Girl's Filling Station"...I am once again working on my Laurie King books..about the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his wife..excellent writer...the new book is called "the Bones of Paris"..I can't get over how fast these writers just whip out these books plus complicated story lines!..amazing!..I am never disappointed in Miss Kings books..jammed packed with adventure...plus a fat and meaty book...I just love that period of time, when these books were written about...Ann Perry's books are the same....

I loved the All Girl's Filling Station. One of my all time favorite books. I didn't know that Jewel had written a memoir. I was very surprised when she & her husband got divorced.

Comment by Amanda Best on March 23, 2017 at 11:15am

I seem to remember looking at it, and it seemed like it was going to be really sad, so I passed it by.

I just finished The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night Time, it was really good, sad, but very readable.

I also finished The All Girls Filling Station, so I am going to pick up The Whole Town is Talking next time I can get to the library.

Also I finished Never Broken, which is the singer Jewel's memoir, it was very good.

It is a good book.  It a memoir of the author and he had a hard life.  I am pass half way of the book.  Of course,  I only listen to it when I and driving and none of my driving is more a a few minutes and that is why it is taking me a long time to finish it.  It is a big book with 12 CDs.  I think I read somewhere that it on the "100 books you have to read before you die".  Two of my friends recommended it so I am reading it.
