But now I am on a quest to get caught up with several years of reading. Here is what I have on my book shelf:
State of Wonder, Bell Canto, Run and any other book Ann Patchett has written.
Cutting for Stone, Abraham Verghese
Mistress of the Art of Death, Ariana Franklin
Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, Doris Kearns Goodwin
I suggest you look at Book People and their blog post, Ann Patchett Recommends.
That should do me for a while...any suggestions for the BEST books you have read lately?
All fantastic choices. I recommend Amor Towles' Rules of Civility and anything by British novelist Deborah McKinlay including The View from HereReplyDelete
I envy you the discovery of Ann Patchett - she is a brilliant writer and each of her books is unforgettable. State of Wonder is especially great.ReplyDelete
I just came across your blog. I am in MN, and will probably be a snow bird too after I retire. I always worry about money (not enough of it) so I will work two more years and call it done.ReplyDelete
I just discovered Nevada Barr and her wonderful Park Ranger character, Anne Pigeon. A reader suggested I check her out; I'm glad I did.ReplyDelete
