The Warehouse | Rob Hart
post image

My book clubs choice this month and it was a very popular read. High scores and a lively discussion about greed, capitalism and big business. Although described as a dystopian novel we all felt this is already happening in our present. This novel will might make you think.

Cathythoughts Great review! Yes , and great Bookclub discussion 👍🏻 2mo

Fairy Tale | Stephen King
post image

I‘m a big Stephen King fan. I just started this and I‘m very excited about it. It seems to be a return to King of old; a beautifully written story about a boy, a dog and a portal. So far I‘m loving it. More as it happens……

Cathythoughts Sounds good Sinead 👍🏻 love the cover. 3mo
EverydayImReading Well this is a gem so far. I‘m about 40% through it and loving it. However it‘s giving me anxiety. More specifically about Radar. I might have to check doesthedogdie.com 😬 3mo
EverydayImReading Well constant reader I finished it. And overall I have to say I loved it. Some passages gave me anxiety and I had to race past them they were so tense. A beautiful world has been created and I would love to read a sequel. Anything is possible. Simply magic ❤️ 2mo

Revival | Stephen King

Another from one of my favourite writers Stephen King. Also not a horror but an incredible story of the Christian revival tents and a travelling preacher with a supernatural twist. #alphabetgame. Also honourable mention for the classic Rebecca by Daphne du Maurice

The Other Passenger | Louise Candlish
post image

I‘m a newcomer to Louise Candlish novels. She‘s an excellent thriller writer all based in middle class London. The other passenger is one of her best. Smart and well written. Keeps you guessing to the end which is all I need. Im back to work tomorrow so I hope I can continue to keep up and play #alphabetgame.

Cathythoughts Sounds like a good one Sinead 👍🏻 4mo

Never Let Me Go | Kazuo Ishiguro
post image

We read Klara and the sun in our book club and it inspired me to read Never let me go as well. The writing is beautiful and the storytelling as always with Kazuo Ishiguro never fails to surprise. Flies off the page.

Cathythoughts Interesting choice, I have this one on my shelf. I loved the movie of Remains. But I remember I wasn‘t a huge fan of Klara. 4mo
BarbaraBB Great choice! 4mo
BarbaraBB @Cathythoughts I wasn‘t a fan of Klara either but I LOVED this one 🥰 4mo

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd | Agatha Christie
post image

M is for Murder of course !! So many to choose from. The murder of Roger Ackroyd by the Queen of crime is a classic. Also Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. More recently I‘ve enjoyed the Moon flower murder series by Anthony Horowitz and My sister the serial killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite.

batsy Yes to this and The Moonstone! 💕 4mo

Lyra's Oxford | Philip Pullman

“Everything means something” said Lyra severely “We just have to find out how to read it”. I adored the amazing world of Philip Pullmans His dark materials and this is a sequel about the hero Lyra and Pan. ❤️❤️#alphabetgame #letterL

An excellent thriller. Smart and well written. Peter Swanson is one of the best thriller writers at the moment. Also check out his Eight rules for a perfect murder. #Alphabetgame

I‘ve seen the wonderful Hitchcock movie and I just started this book. Her writing is addictive. I devoured all the Ripley books some years back. Has anyone any other Highsmith recommendations?

Cazxxx I‘ve loved the books of hers that I have read so far. Would recommend 4mo
EverydayImReading Thank you @Cazxxx I will add that to the pile. Great to have a recommendation 4mo

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront

“There was no possibility of taking a walk that morning” From the orphanage to Thornberry hall. From the mysterious and handsome Mr Rochester to the poor first wife in the attic. It‘s got it all really. ❤️❤️

Working in tissue culture in 80s and 90s we were told the HeLa cell line was from a woman called Helen Lane. A literal white wash of the truth. This is the real life story of a Henrietta Lacks who unbeknownst to herself has contributed to many advances in science and research and she deserves a voice. There are many books and at least one film also about her life. #Alphabetgame

kspenmoll Her story is now public thanks to her family & this author. I was honored to hear her grandchildren & Rebecca Solnit speak at UConn, and have a signed book. They were incredible. Thanks for sharing your i sight from working with tissue. (edited) 4mo

Hearts In Atlantis | Stephen King
post image

I‘ve always been a huge fan of Stephen Kings writing and non horror books. Don‘t forget he wrote Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. An effort was made to make this into a movie but it barely touched one third of the book. Not even Anthony Hopkins could save it. The book is five linked stories full of stunning writing and page turning suspense. I also loved 22/11/63 and Revival the ending of which he said scared even him 😬

Cathythoughts That‘s quite a recommendation 👍🏻 stacking. 4mo

Gone with the Wind | Margareth Mitchell

#Aphabetgame I read this book when I was 18 after I had watched the movie. And while the story of the indomitable Scarlett and Rhett Butler is absorbing it is also very underrated as an anti war book. Also add to that list of underrated anti war books is Captain Correllis mandolin.

Cathythoughts Great review Sinead. I saw the movie years ago and loved it 👍🏻♥️ 4mo
EverydayImReading I must have watched that movie 5/6 times 😬The book as usual has so much more. Its almost 1000 pages! 4mo

I read this years ago and it made me laugh so much and I have read most of Brysons books now. Filled with strange and unusual stories and facts told in a loving way. All of his books are so well researched most of them like this one from his personnel adventures. #Alphabetgame

My first Shirley Jackson novel and I loved her writing. Thank you for recommending it Cathy. The story and characters were so well drawn I felt I was living in the castle. Such an unusual story too. Rare to find something that surprises.
