I've read The Prince of Tides a few years ago. It was very impressing. The choice of words, the amount of words and the flow was amazing.

Not sure about a springtime book...
That's already on my TBR list. I guess I need to order it soon

Delirium (Delirium #1) by Lauren Oliver

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See



Spring time is harder. I read Chocolat by Joanne Harris and The Secret Garden is on my list to read.
Chocolat sounds interesting! I've read Delirium quite a while ago. I didn't like it that much.

Hmmm... a book set just in springtime? I'll have to think on that one.
Thank you. This one went directly on my TBR list

Read The Dry by Jane Harper within 3 days (which is really quick for me). A very nice crime story, absolutely unpredictable. 3 out of 5 stars.

Next will be Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I'm very curious.

I said this already...but I loved Chocolat...movie was wonderful, IMO...Juliette Binoche, Johnny Depp before all those pirate movies, Alfred Molina...so funny....it's about a free spirit and her daughter in years past......a tiny bit of romance and spiritual fantasy...Lena Olin was outstanding.

Oops, this is a book thread...

I struck gold in the last two books I read.


"The To Hell And Back Club" by Jill Hannah Anderson rates 5 stars, IMO. I could not put it down.
This is the author's first book and it's a wonderful read. Her next book is due out soon. It's been a while since I enjoyed a book so much. I heartily recommend it.


"The Secret Mother" by Shalini Boland is another fine read.


It's so unusual for me to find two extraordinary books in a row. I loved them both. I'd give "The Secret Mother" 5 stars, too.


Of the two my favorite was "The To Hell And Back Club" but I did enjoy both books tremendously.

Several days ago I finished The Widow, by Fiona Barton. I truly enjoyed it and had a hard time putting it down. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to read The Child, by the same author. Wow, my mind kept wanting to put the clues together but I was shocked when I finally figured it out. I thought that the author did a super job of fleshing out the characters, and keeping the story moving along. This book is my favorite so far this year. In my opinion the story was “brilliant” and I highly recommend it.

Yay, thank you Ketabcha. After finishing The Child, I was wondering how I would find another book that I will enjoy as much as the last two Fiona Barton books. I’ll be starting The To Hell and Back Club as soon as I find and download it!

I am picking up my hold on The Dry later today.

How do you like EPL? I watched the beginning of the movie once, didn't like it and stopped

Lucky you. I haven't had such luck with books in quite some time. I've added both to my list. Did you get them as kindle freebies? If so I will keep am eye on them

Thank you. I just placed a hold for The Child.

The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra by Vaseem Khan won't change your life, but it is an easy, enjoyable read. If you liked The Number One Ladies Detective Agency series, you'll like this one. I plan to read more in the series.
