Another blue post - but this time, light blue, in all different shades! Of the four featured above, which author is your favorite? I know that's a pretty tough call... 😉💙📘

rretzler Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors period. I‘ve read Virginia Woolf but not the others. (edited) 4mo
RhianJMartin @rretzler I love Agatha Christie too! 💚 I haven't read anything besides PS I Love You from Ahearn, but I've read quite a bit by Woolf. Roddy Doyle is fantastic. If you've never given his work a try, you should! 😊 4mo
rretzler Thanks for the rec. I‘ll have to put Doyle on my list. 4mo

limada I've only read P.S. I Love You out of the pile, but I read it before the movie came out and absolutely loved it. Not sure I'd call Cecilia Ahern a favourite author, but she hasn't disappointed so far. 4mo
RhianJMartin @limada Yes, there was definitely more storyline in the book than what the movie portrayed (isn't that always the case? Haha!), but I like the movie, too. 🙂 Have you read anything else by Cecilia Ahern that you'd recommend? 📙 4mo
marleed Loved PS I Love You - the book then movie. I just reread the book so my memories would be with the book in anticipation of the sequel which doesn‘t get to the US until next spring :( 4mo
limada @RhianJMartin I think Flawed and Perfect are the only other two I've read, though I have a feeling there's another one; I just can't place the name - even after looking up her book titles. Her writing style just feels comfortable to me, so the stories flow easily. 4mo
RhianJMartin @marleed You know, I heard someone talking about the sequel but didn't realize it was actually happening! That's great news though. 🙂 There's always a wait, it seems... I'm a big BBC Masterpiece fan so I'm forever waiting for those shows to air in the US! ⌚ 4mo
RhianJMartin @limada Thanks for letting me know - I will put those on my TBR list! 😊📚 I'm the same way with Maeve Binchy novels... there's something that just feels like home when I read them. 💚 4mo
marleed It‘s called Postscript (get it!) and set 15 years after the book ends. The UK cover is gorgeous and they are rereleasing a ps I love you paperback to coordinate. I‘m so excited for the sequel that I started following the author on Instagram to keep up with news on it! 4mo
RhianJMartin @marleed Oh, that's great! I'll have to follow her on Instagram, too. ? Looking forward to "Postscript" - let me know your thoughts after you read it! ? 4mo

Three possible candidate for prompt#5 of the #Booked2019 challenge

#RoddyDoyle is an accomplished, award-winning Irish author. His fiction is historical and rooted in the troubling aspects of life in Modern Ireland.

#WomanWhoWalkedIntoDoors and it's sequel #PaulaSpencer tackle domestic violence in a Catholic society opposed to Divorce.

BarbaraTheBibliophage I read my first John Boyne last year, The Heart‘s Invisible Furies. He tackles the social mores of Irish Catholicism too. Not surprised to see it‘s a common theme among Irish writers. (Tagging @Cinfhen again, our third co-host.) 12mo
Cinfhen Thanks @BarbaraTheBibliophage 😘😘 12mo

Homegoing: A novel | Yaa Gyasi
post image

We are starting a book club at work and my coworker who is organizing asked me to come up with some suggestions of books to read. I don‘t want to pick books I‘ve read already since I‘m participating but now I‘m stressing out about what to pick. Any book I should add or skip? The only one I‘ve read is Homegoing. Our first pick is going to be Becoming by Michelle Obama.

bookcollecter Any genre? 12mo

irre @bookcollecter Thanks for the recommendations. 12mo
bookcollecter No worries 😁. Not sure if you have read any of these, but they are all award winners and would be excellent for discussion. 12mo
irre @bookcollecter Only read Slaughterhouse Five 12mo
bookcollecter Look at #WomanWhoWalkedIntoDoors by #RoddyDoyle a very busy powerful novel about women in Ireland in the 80s 12mo
