The Glass Castle: A Memoir | Jeannette Walls
post image
Pickpick

One piss-poor bluffer indeed. The Glass Castle is still one of the most remarkable books I've ever read. She rides in a limo through New York City only to see a woman on the street digging through the trash, and realizes it's her mother. A memoir.

Lwiesman Great book! 3y

What She Knew: A Novel | Gilly Macmillan
post image
Pickpick

What She Knew combines beautifully written prose with the cleverness of suspense, and the creative ability to weave in multiple layers of investigation and heartbreak. "Leaves gusted around me like decomposing confetti as the wind began to build, and great masses of foliage shuddered and bent as it whipped through the canopy above." - Gilly MacMillan

Struggle shows conflict, hardship, perseverance, and then growth. We can keep going, aiming for the sky. I'm also a big fan of this book. The first paragraph had me hooked from the beginning.

LauraBeth I love this book so much! And I'd hate to know the person I'd be if I never had brokenness. 3y

The Marriage Lie | Kimberly Belle

I read this book in 2 1/2 days. Great pacing and plenty of twists & turns for a clever suspense plot. Plus, this quote, sadly, rings true of what the woman goes through trying to find out what happened to her husband. Great read. Highly recommend it!

RadicalReader @GeorginaCrossAuthor this book sounds phenomenal can't get to the library soon enough to check it out or get back quick enough to read it 3y

The Hours: A Novel | Michael Cunningham

This book is hauntingly tragic, beautifully written. I love everything about The Hours. Always have. One of my all-time favorites that combines complex female characters with melancholy and a struggle to be loved.

Testimony: A Novel | Anita Shreve

I've always been a fan of Anita Shreve. Lots of female drama. Her work goes back more than twenty years with The Weight of Water one of my most dramatic favorites. Testimony is excellent too.

Sarah1960 I loved " Weight of water". Absolutely in my top 10 books ever! Glad to "meet" someone with the same feelings about a beloved book! 3y

Sense & Sensibility | Jane Austen

So true! Sometimes, I draw out the last chapter so it won't end. I make up chapters on my own. Or other times, the book ends too abruptly, as if forced or rushed by deadline, or to simply get to The End.

Elleknowles Never thought of it that way but it's so true! Well written books always end too soon... 3y
GeorginaCrossAuthor @Elleknowles Agreed. Sometimes I'm a bit sad to close the book and leave the story so soon. 3y
Elleknowles Sometimes I think about a really good book I've just finished for days! Another good one usually comes along to take its place though... @GeorginaCrossAuthor 3y

The Passenger | Lisa Lutz

My Christmas read is more on the dark side. There are multiple sentences - from the first paragraph to Chapter 3 to page 50 - that has me wondering what in the heck happened to this woman before going on the run - and who is the original passenger?? "In case you were wondering, I didn't do it. I didn't have anything to do with Frank's death. I don't have an alibi, so you'll have to take my word for it." - Lisa Lutz, The Passenger #litsyfeature

Reconstructing Amelia | Kimberly McCreight
post image
Pickpick

Have become a big fan of Kimberly McCreight this year. Her debut novel is well written, particularly from the viewpoint of the mother Kate as she tries to find out what happened to her daughter. And the author uses a clever way of inserting quick one to two pages of text messages, emails, or letters to show a flashback or some sort of dialogue. I recommend Where They Found Her also.
