In trying to determine why a young drug addict died, Inspector John Rebus continues to look for clues in the case, because he knows there has to be more to it than a drug overdose.

I picked this up at Goodwill, not really knowing what it was about, but I enjoyed it. It's an interesting book about following your dreams.

The Last Tycoon | F. Scott Fitzgerald

Mehso-so

This is Fitzgerald's last, unfinished novel. Set in Hollywood, it's the story of Monroe Stahr, a studio manager. This wasn't my favorite book by F. Scott Fitzgerald, it was just ok.

I love The Sound of Music, and enjoyed reading the true story of the Trapp Family! After coming to America from Austria, they traveled all over the country performing concerts, and bought a farm in Vermont.

ljuliel Good job. 👍🏼. I like Sound of Music too. 3y
TheAromaofBooks Haven't read this one in a long time, but I keep meaning to come back to it. She wrote a sequel as well! I couldn't believe how all the events from The Sound of Music only take the first few chapters of the book. Such an eventful life! 3y
Cinfhen Fun choice!!! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great idea! 3y
Crazeedi This is one of my special loves. I read this as a young girl, still have the little paperback, in rough shape, but it captured my heart💖 3y

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book! There was so much description about the characters and setting, you felt like you were right there in Brooklyn with Francie and her family.

Cortg One of my faves! My daughter helped me name my new aloe plant Francie. She felt it needed a literary name and asked me to name some of my favorite books. 3y
janeycanuck I loved it, too. So happy you did a buddy read for this! I think I‘ll miss the last discussion, though 🙁 3y
mrp27 I'm not quite finished but I'm pretty sure it's going to be a 5 star read and an all time favorite. 3y

A Room of One's Own | Virginia Woolf

I can't even put into words how I feel about this essay, but Virginia Woolf makes so many very valid points about the lack of representation of women in literature through the ages.

The Long Valley | John Steinbeck

Pickpick

I finished reading this one this morning. I prefer John Steinbeck's novels, but this collection of short stories and the novella The Red Pony was good. I love John Steinbeck's writing style, and this one did not disappoint. #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #1938

Howard_L I love Steinbeck‘s writing style as well. Haven‘t read this but will add it to my list. I have a tattered copy of “The Acts of King Arthur and his Noble Knights” in the TBR stack on my bed shelf. 3y
ljuliel I haven‘t heard of this before ! 3y
ONH East of Eden is on my December reading list! Will look into this one too 3y
