Good Morning Ladies..I have been reading along but not writing...taking care of dear hubby John has become almost full time now..he is still sleeping, so I have some extra time...I am reading a easy, light book by Ann Granger,called the "Companion..1850" of course it is a mystery (now, if I could just stop looking at the end of the book for the murderer!!!..there, you can see it drives me crazy, when the book gets too wordy, continue going over the clues!..I am more patient taking out unwanted stitches out if my quilts!...I am ready to start a historical novel...do you gals have any suggestions?

I have seen her books at my library, but have never read them.  Will have to give them a try Amanda.

That sounds really good, Janet! 

I found an new, (to me), author Mary Kay Andrews. Her novels are fun and light reading. I have liked the first two I have read. Ladies Night and Every Crooked Nanny.

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. 

Comment by Kathy Koehler Holm on March 24, 2017 at 7:55pm
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....
