Two really good books Iíve read this year are ó-


The Ten Thousand Doors of January.....by Alix E. Harrow óbeautiful story, story structure, language, great take you away from reality book ó-
It will lead you on a journey through books within books, worlds within worlds, mysteries within mysteries, until, finally, you reach a deep breath taken after a perfectly satisfying last page. ónpr


The Testaments....By Margaret Atwood (sequel to The Handmaidís Tale)
It may not be the best book to read if you are already stressed with Covid right now as there are lots of triggers and stressful situations the characters are involved in. I enjoyed it though and read it quickly.

American Gospel by Jon Meachem. I haven't started listening to this yet.



The Jet Setters - I just started this one. I'll let you know.


Audible is offering free children's audio books and I started listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, narrated by Stephen Fry. I own the version narrated by Jim Dale. I like the Jim Dale version better.

I'm re-reading Little Women and after 55+ years I'm finding many of my memories of it are tied up in the movie versions.

Often times I find Alcott's voice is less like the third person or narrator, but written more as an observer. It's a bit off putting. I'd forgotten what a large part of the story was taken up with character building and moralizing.

It’s great to have you back, Trasie.

I finished it’s the way it always is. I recommend this book.

I had little knowledge of gender identity before reading this book about a family and how they live with the youngest sibling of 5 who is living the life of gender identity. A young boy, Claude, is living as a girl, Poppy. The story handles how this affects each member of this family.

I was also intrigued by the advancements in Thailand on this issue as I researched further.

Thank you Trasie for linking this thread in the Hooked On Books group. I love to find these informative threads all in one place. I have missed that since you have been gone.

trasie! It is so good to have you back!


I just started The King's Justice by Susan Elia Macneal. It is the 9th book in the "Maggie Hope" series. The books are historical fiction (set in WWII England) but also mysteries with some romance thrown in for good measure.


My previous read was Lost Roses by Martha Hall Kelly. It is a prequel to Lilac Girls. It is set in WWI with 3 main characters; Eliza who lives in New York, Sofya who lives in Russia and is a cousin of the Romanovs, and Varinka also Russian. I really liked this book. If you are a fan of historical fiction give this one a try!

I finished The overstory, by Richard Powers. Very good book about trees, as people a bit long though, or maybe I read slowly,

I just started American dirt, by Jeanine Cummings. Seems very good, but not a book I should read at bedtime!
