Well? Got a book recommendation for us?

smiley faceSince it’s the last day to comment to enter the January gift card drawing for a $25.00 Amazon gift card, I thought we’d have a book chat. What’s the best book you’ve read recently or not so recently? I was having this discussion with my writer’s group last night. Though I am not typically one who reads books right when they come out (my TBR pile is just too gigantic to keep up with the latest) there are a few releases which have stood out in my mind.

Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, a lovely, lyrical book about a crusty English Major who falls for a Indian shopkeeper. (Here’s a link to my full review http://wp.me/ppysi-4A )

Little Bee, Chris Cleave, in which the lives of a British woman and a Nigerian girl collide in this novel of lost innocence and survival.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. In 1946, writer Juliet Ashton finds inspiration for her next book in her correspondence with a native of Guernsey, who tells her about the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a book club born as an alibi during German occupation.

 

Your turn! Tell us about a book you’ve read that really stuck with you. All posts get you entered in the drawing for an Amazon gift card. Winners announced tomorrow.

  1. I recently finished “Trinity: Military War Dog” by Ronie Kendig. It was great! In fact, I would recommend all of her books — she’s a really good author!
