The Stand | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

There are times when I feel uppity and swear Stephen King isn‘t that talented of a writer. Then I pick up a book like The Stand and am humbled by King‘s ability to tell a really great story. His characters are real. The settings are real. The emotions are real. I found myself wanting to stay up way past my bedtime to finish a few more pages. Was this the best choice to read during a pandemic? Yes. I think so. It puts it all into perspective.

JamieArc I read this in June 2020 and thought I was making a bad decision to read it during the pandemic, and a reading slump at that, but it ended up being a great choice and you‘re right - put things into perspective. Because at least our pandemic wasn‘t THAT bad! 8mo
Rebesta @JamieArc - I hear ya! The Stand makes our pandemic look like the common cold. And we didn‘t have the whole “good vs. evil” political spin… Or did we? ☺️🙃 8mo

If you have not read this, you absolutely MUST! It will offer you words of wisdom in a lighthearted way, give you a new perspective on life and regret, and offer you the hope you are looking for in these trying times. Haig is a brilliant writer who knows how to get to the heart of humans. Don‘t cheat yourself! Read this book!

Beach Music | Pat Conroy
post image
Mehso-so

Some parts of this novel I loved and others annoyed me. The banter between the brothers was annoying at times. The scene in the theater near the end was a bit hokey and unrealistic. However, the way he moved between past and present was flawless. He gave moving descriptions of The Holocaust and the effects it had on his characters. Jack‘s mother‘s story was equally moving. Conroy is gifted writer in need of an editor who can showcase his talents.

It took me awhile to appreciate Hemingway's style, especially after being submerged in Faulkner, but he's grown on me considerably through the years. A book of short stories, written in Hems tight style, is just what I needed these past few months of scattered thoughts and worry. The best short by far is The Snows if Kilimanjaro, but I think all his shorts are in this edition.

SamAnne I've been wanting to read his collected short stories for awhile. Thanks for the reminder. 14mo
Rebesta It's nice to be able to pick and choose as mood dictates without committing to a long novel. My brain is exhausted right now. I hope you enjoy when you do get around to it, @SamAnne 14mo

Blonde: A Novel | Joyce Carol Oates
post image
Mehso-so

This one was quite poetic and did a good job of illustrating what Marilyn's inner dialog and feelings might have been. I wish it were a bit more factual; however, Oats does warn the reader it won't be a piece of historical fiction. Oats does make the reader do a little sleuthing to figure out who Marilyn may have been thinking about or involved with during the story. If you're looking for a factual account of her life, this may not be for you.

Play Dirty: A Novel | Sandra Brown
post image

My MIL gave this to me, and it's not something I'd normally read, so it took me a while to get into it. It wasn't bad once I did though. It was quite entertaining. My only complaint is that Brown kept repeating major plot points which ruined the immersion a little.

The Silver Star: A Novel | Jeannette Walls

A easy, quick read that deals with some heavy topics relevant to what we hear on the news today. The difference between the news and the book is the main character‘s moral fortitude and positive attitude. I enjoyed being in her presence, and the book ended way too soon.

Had I been more familiar with the time period, I might have found this a bit better to read. It is a well-written account of Cleopatra from her perspective, which was interesting, but I found myself going on Google field trips to look up people, places, and incidents. I think that took away from the enjoyment of the book. If you‘re not compelled to Google everything then you may enjoy this book more.

An interesting book but a little repetitive and rambling. Morton does a good job of describing Diana‘s side of the story. However, I‘d like to read an objective account taking in both sides of the marriage and divorce of Charles and Diana. At times I found myself frustrated with her privileged attitude about her own suffering, but I cried at Britain‘s reaction to her death. She has definitely had an emotional impact worldwide—whether good or bad.

TrishB I don‘t think an objective account will ever exist. 2y
Rebesta @TrishB - Nor do I. Everyone has to be in either camp Charles or camp Diana with most falling into the later. 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TrishB I wondered about that... 2y

Practical Magic | Alice Hoffman

“Isolation becomes a circle: the lonelier you are, the more you pull away, until humans seem an alien race, with customs and a language you can‘t begin to understand.” - Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic

Lots of great quotes and a lighthearted read. I‘m sorry for not having read this before now. I‘ve relied on the movie version which was a bit lazy especially when the book was better—as usual.

This was good first attempt by Bryn Turnbull. She chose an interesting character with a plethora of experiences both in America and Europe. The novel describes the affair Thelma Furness had with Prince Edward (David) and her involvement with her sister‘s, Gloria Vanderbilt‘s, custody trial.

I had just finished watching the movie and thought, “The book has to be better.” I checked it out from an online library and wasn‘t disappointed. It‘s a poetic, touching read that should make you weep at least twice. No movie can do this book justice. It must be read.

I‘ve spent the past six weeks submerged in the Plantagenets‘ world. Phillippa Gregory does an excellent job of bringing the Plantagenet women alive, allowing us to step back in time and experience events from their point of view. If you haven‘t tried any of her novels, and if you‘re a fan of historical fiction, you should check her out. I‘ll leave a link to her website below.

If you find the people of Kenya‘s Happy Valley during the 20s and 30s interesting, you won‘t be disappointed with Spicers‘ portrayal of Alice de Janze. The biography is well researched, and he logically connects her to the mysterious murder of her lover Joss Hay, the 22nd Earl of Erroll. A great, quick read!

Park Avenue Summer | Rene Rosen

This fast, fun, and easy read about Helen Gurley Brown is just what the doctor ordered to take my mind off the pandemic. Rosen does a spectacular job of weaving history and fiction together as a small-town, aspiring photographer takes us to 1965 New York, showing us how Helen turns Cosmo magazine into the sexy icon we know today. It's Sex and the City meets The Devil Wears Prada.

This book would've been interesting if I hadn't read it during a pandemic. The sisters are fascinating, and the author researched the subject well, but I was looking for an escape. A 600 page biography wasn't it for right now. I'll finish it at a later date.

The Talented Mr. Ripley | Patricia Highsmith

This is one of my favorite movies though I‘d never read the book. I‘ve read a few other Highsmith novels and decided to give this one a try. It‘s a little different from the screenplay but not disappointingly so. It follows the adage “the book is always better than the movie.”

Being from Chicago, I‘d thought I‘d like this book a bit more than I did. Perhaps it‘s because I‘d read two Abbott books back-to-back that I found this one a bit dry. There are also a lot of characters to sift through and most of them could‘ve had a their own book. I‘d recommend reading it when you have time to fully research all the aspects of the Chicago crime syndicate and law enforcement.

Being from the Midwest, I‘m always intrigued with its criminal history, especially stories about prohibition and bootleggers. Abbot‘s retelling of The Bootleg King, George Remus, was a well-researched work taken directly from court and legal documents along with news stories of the time. It starts off a little slow and dry but picks up in the middle. All in all, an interesting read.

I have traveled to many places in my books through the years. I wasn‘t looking forward to going to a swamp but went as I received this book as a gift. Delia Owens expertly describes the prejudices we have towards others and just as expertly unwraps those for us to examine. Read this and you‘ll want to hug someone who is different. It‘s a beautiful book.

A great story about two notorious characters and a famous one. This novel takes you through the lives of Claude and Blanche Auzello, the manager of the Ritz Hotel in Paris and his Jewish wife, during World War II. Though little is known about their inner/emotional lives, Benjamin does a fine job of reimagining them for us. The novel is rich in history and accurate in events. An excellent and moving read!

This appeared to be all about fashion from the cover, but it‘s much more than that. It‘s a story about women‘s strength in the face of extreme adversity. It‘s about love and friendships that transcend wars and time embroidered on the tapestry of life through the generations. I enjoyed this one.

I‘m addicted to historical fiction and this one didn‘t disappoint. It‘s a fast, fun read offering a lot of insight into Alice Roosevelt Longworth‘s life as a Washington, D.C. socialite and political force. Thornton did her research and dishes up the dirt on this enigmatic woman who would have held an office of her own if times were different then. I sympathized with her heartbreaks and rejoiced in her victories. All in all—a great read!

I figured I'd read this before The Irishman comes out. I've always had a fascination with mob movies, but I've never read a mob confessional. I can't fathom, even after reading this, what kind of person could kill a dear friend in cold blood. With Sheeran's confession, Brandt has done an excellent job of illuminating the inner workings of The IBT and the mafia from the 30s to 90s. I couldn't put this one down.

This is a series I return to from time to time. It‘s based on a powerful family of female witches spanning centuries. Each generation has a matriarch who inherits a dutiful ghost to do her bidding. It has romance, the supernatural, old houses, and New Orleans. It takes the reader on a journey from the West Coast to the South and around the world. A fabulous book series if you‘re looking for something intriguing and fun.

I enjoyed learning about Stephen I‘s reign and Empress Matilda‘s quest for the crown. The book is well researched, and the characters bring this medieval period to life. There are a lot of characters which can be difficult to keep track of at times, and many of those characters have the same name, but she does try to differentiate, making it a bit easier. If you‘re interested in historical fiction about England, you‘ll enjoy this book.

TrishB OMG! That cover ❤️ what a gorgeous copy! 4y

If you like your philosophy with cotton candy, enjoy stories about immortality, and can‘t live without beets then this book is your ticket to the circus of life. It spans a 1000 years in which a condemned king meets a Greek god and travels the world with his true love. It‘s a story replete with sex, intrigue, and three perfumeries‘ attempts to find the perfect scent. It has a little something for everyone. Join King Alobar. You won‘t regret it.

From the moment I picked this up, I couldn‘t put it down. Theo Decker‘s love for his mother, challenging home life, and ability to drag himself forward in the wake of tragedy is heartbreaking. I wanted to lavish him with the love he lost. From Park Ave to Vegas and Amsterdam, Tartt‘s descriptions through eyes of a young boy are rich, leaving no sense unmentioned. It‘s like reading a series in one sitting. I was sad to leave on the last page.

Some movies are so close to the book that you almost don‘t have to read it, but you should! James M. Cain is a wonderful author who knows how to develop a character with some serious flaws. His other works include The Postman Always Rings Twice and Double Indemnity. My favorite by far is Mildred Pierce — I‘m a sucker for a story in which a downtrodden woman rises to the top. Read the book! Watch the series! You won‘t regret either!
