The Hanover Square Affair, which is an English historical mystery. Good so far.

If post-apoc is not your thing, don't let that put you off. This is an excellent read!

Sounds good to me. thanks TracySam!
Fromupthere, I'm 39 on the waiting list. I'll be lucky if I get it this year.

Wow that's a long wait. I must have gotten it before it became more popular. I was the only one who wanted to read it in December at my library

I'm reading The Mystery of the Shemitah by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. (He also wrote The Harbinger, which some of you may know.)

In terms of what to expect during the pending economic collapse and the fall of the United States as the leading world power (the shift from west to east has already occurred), this book contains information that is critical to all of us and is one of the most provocative and important books of our time IMO.

May God bless you all.

If you liked Still Alice and/or Turn of Mind there is a free giveaway for another book on Goodreads.

The Day We Met: A Novel by Rowan Coleman.
"The name of your first-born. The face of your lover. Your age. Your address…

What would happen if your memory of these began to fade?

Is it possible to rebuild your life? Raise a family? Fall in love again?

When Claire starts to write her Memory Book, she already knows that this scrapbook of mementoes will soon be all her daughters and husband have of her. In her mid-40s, Claire is scared and increasingly confused by the world around her, struggling to hold onto her identity as thoughts of her mother, her daughters, and her husband grow fuzzier every day. Fearing what will happen if those memories fade altogether, her family’s gift of a red sketchpad is her most treasured possession. As they fill it with scenes from a joyous life lived together, Claire again experiences the ecstatic highs and terrible lows of a life well lived: full of heartbreak and love, tears and laughter."

So I just started BIG LITTLE LIES yesterday, and thanks to the wonderful weather NOT of the northeast, I have not left the house today. I am almost halfway through and man oh man what a great effortless read. Thoroughly enjoying it. I think if someone is having a hard time getting back to reading, this book would be a good one to lure one back.

The Martian by Andy Weir. I can't put it down. It's about the 4th manned Mars mission, and how one of the crew is stranded there alone.
Movie starring Matt Damon, with Ridley Scott directing coming next November.

I absolutely loved Everything I Never Told You.
The Girl on the Train was also a good read.
