Default Best book you've read in the past few months?

I just finished "The Harbinger" by Johnathan Cahn. My friend kept saying I had to read it. I didn't think I'd like it at all. Fascinating! I didn't want to stop reading until I finished.

Besides the Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett Which is always a stand by fluff read. I really liked The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews. It was a hoot. Good writing, and good story line. Definitely a light read. And, I really liked the books by Yasmin Galenorn, The Chintz' and China mysteries. (There are 5 of them in the set.) These are my go to books. Light enjoyable reads.

This one is a tear-jerker...."A Child Called It" by Dave Pelzer. It is supposed to be a true story, and I cried thru the whole book. There are 2 more sequel books after it.

Reading Charlaine Harris at the moment (Midnight....), fancy a light read so just grabbed it at the library. Usually I prefer something a bit 'deeper' but I am quite enjoying this. Debbie, I have read all the Dave Pelzer books....very, very sad. Regrettably, Dave is not alone, and such things still happen today. Have a yearning for Sherlock....so I'll revisit my Arthur Conan Doyle pile this week

I am in the throes of reading all of William Kent Krueger's books - actually I am an audio book "reader". I listen while I drive, I listen while I sew, inside or outside!!!! Just finished "Northwest Angle". It takes place in Minnesota where his "Cork O'Connor" books take place. The books started in 1998 and now I am listening to Trickster's Point and it is 2012. I have four more to listen to after this one. I love his books. It has Minnesota history in it and I find that very interesting and he writes a darn good book. Keeps you listening all the time. I love to listen and hand sew. Edie

Simply Alice was the best I've read lately. A good look into a highly organized person developing Alzheimer's. Did not see the movie, thinking the book is usually better.

I think you meant "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova. That's a good book. I haven't seen the movie either.

I just finished reading "Don't Give Up, Don't Give In... Lessons from an Extraordinary Life" by Louis Zamperini. This book was sent to the publisher two days before he died. He has an earlier book called "Devil at my Heels," and he is the person that the book "Unbroken" was based on. I've all read three of those books and enjoyed them.

I'm currently reading "Orphan Train" by Christina Baker Kline. It's our current book club pick, and I've enjoyed it from the first page.

"Still Life with Crumbs" by Anna Quindlin was a good read.

Some of our book club books have been on the verge on depressing so for April we are reading "My Mother was Nuts" by Penny Marshall. She takes everyday events and spins them like Erma Bombeck. In the first 50 pages I laughed with tears.

The book I was really disappointed in was "Mrs. Grant and Madame Jule" by Jennifer Chiaverini. I've always loved her writing and got this book as soon as it came out. I was at the end of the book and still waiting for something to happen.
