Goal - 50 books

Book #16 - "The Knitting Circle" by Ann Hood

Mary Baxter takes up knitting as a way to help with her grief after the sudden death of her 5 year old daughter. As she learns to knit, she joins a "circle" of women who knit together often to share their strength. At first, Mary believes that no one can understand her loss, but as she learns the stories of the knitting circle, she realizes that everyone has heartache, no matter how perfect their lives look on the outside.

This was a pretty good book. A little more depressing than I usually like, but the resolution at the end redeemed it. Some of the characters were really well written, and some of them were extremely one dimensional, and I can't quite tell if the author meant for it to be that way or not. Still, it was an enjoyable read, and I would recommend it.

Next up: "Life is So Good" by George Dawson and Richard Glaubman, and I continue to plug away at "Team of Rivals". Each day I'm getting at least one chapter closer to the end!

#9 - To be Sung Underwater - Thomas McNeal - LOVED this book. Girl grows up, moves, first love, then life changed her path. She looks back to see what might have been. Again, I hate to say much because sometimes I don't want too know much before I read a book. Started this yesterday and had soo much trouble putting it down. Beautifully written & stays with you after finishing. If anyone reads this, would love a message since there's one part I'm dying to discuss and have no one to share about it!

I will say that I don't have to have a happy ending to love a book but I'm ready for one now. Up next, something light because I need it!
Just noticed your goal increase! I will make note of that.

I'm going to add this book to my "to read" list. I'd love to discuss it with you when I'm done, but currently I'm reading Fall of the Giants and that most likely will take me a few weeks at least.

Turkey Day Murder by Leslie Meier

This is your typical cozy murder mystery. I like the characters of the series and enjoy "catching up" with them. This book was not as good as others I have read; sort of scattered. Quick read though.

Definitely. I'm going there now to add 3 books from here to my "want to read" list-
"The Knitting Circle"
"Turkey Day Murder"
"The Chocolate Lovers Club"
Pretty soon my "Want to read" list will be the longest.
Right now I'm reading "Moving Can Be Murder". It's not great, but fairly enjoyable.

I just finished this one (have to go check and see if I put it on my list!). It was very good! Someone here suggested this author, so I started reading his books, and found that I had actually read a couple. This one was quite enjoyable.

Goal 72

#14 What Comes Next by John Katzenbach

After reading so may YA books lately this one was really intense. A psychological thriller. Loved it.
Just after a retired professor receives news that he has a terminal disease (age related), he plans to go home and commit suicide as he has no remaining family to live for. Only, as he pulls into his driveway, he witnesses a teenage girl being abducted but the police don't believe him at first....he starts his own investigation with help from conversations with his dead loved ones.............

Have read 13 out of 80 books so far. Didn't get to finish the book "The Secret Keeper" by Kate Morton. Goes back to the library today and didn't have the time because it was a fourteen day loan. Do non-Fiction books count to read? If not then I am going tonight to get some more books out of the library. Decide not to read the non fiction book I was reading cause it too boring.

I am now reading The Enchantress by Michael Scott. It is the last book in the series The Secrets of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

Am I the only one who has real life getting in the way of their reading? Seems like all of my students' IEPs were due in January & February. We're not even finished the second month of the year yet and I'm already 3 books behind!!!!

On a positive note, I did finish "The Lincoln Conspiracy" last night. I did enjoy it immensely, but then again, historical fiction is my favorite genre.

I downloaded 3 more library books tonight. Hoping to get to them before they're due back at the library.

ETA: do books I read w/ my class count?

We're getting snowed in later today and I can't find a new book that has hooked me yet. I am looking forward to some lazing around reading! I am on the waiting list for some ebooks based on recs here but don't think they'll come in that quickly. Off to look back through the thread for more ideas.

Lots of YA books are meatier than some adult books, so why not? You are still reading!

For those of you asking about whether a certain book should count.... there are NO rules here. A book is a book is a book, lol. Doesn't matter the content or genre, the page number, or the reason why you're reading it (class, etc.).

All that matters is that we have FUN reading this year!
