Book Recommendations

I have enjoyed so many of the books that have been recommended on PT. I find myself getting more and more lost in books to avoid the craziness of the world. I think Iíve read more this summer than ever! I wanted to share some titles. These are books I that would have never chosen, but they were free on Amazon Prime. Each one completely different and I savored every minute of reading them.

The Last of the Moon Girls
Barbara Davis
Refuge - Dot Jackson
The Bride Test - Helen Hoang
The Darkest Secret
Alex Marwood

My SIL asked me for some book selections because she was going to need a suggestion for her book club. My reading goal on Goodreads has 42 finished books. A lot of the books were more for pure enjoyment and escape. That is not to say that they wouldnít be good for discussing in these days.

I made a list of books that I feel make for good book discussions- books that have multiple facets/themes.

Here is my list of books that I value for this purpose of the books that I have read this year.

Have You Seen Luis Velez?
The Rent Collector
The Nickel Boys
Such a Fun Age
This is How it Always is
American Dirt
The Vanishing Half
The Henna Artist
The Crocus trilogy (if only one- Mustard Seeds)
As I look at my list they all reflect a theme of diversity and/or privilege.

Please feel free to post your recommended reads this year.

Note- different than monthly reads, these are the ones that stayed with you.
