I just finished The Last Flight by Julie Clark. It was exciting and had an interesting twist or two. I liked it a lot!

I'm glad you liked TLF, Mak - it was a lot of fun.

Yesterday I finished Rumaan Alam's debut novel from 2016, Rich and Pretty. While it had a few pleasant passages, I really can't recommend it because the story -- what there was of it -- just wasn't compelling enough for me to encourage others to read it. I'm very much debating whether I'll read his two follow-up books (the most recent one was nominated for a National Book Award). We'll see.

I hope everyone is having a Happy New Year and that the year ahead allows all of you to read dozens and dozens (and even more dozens) of books!

Thanks to you Ric, I am starting my new year of reading with The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.

Yay!! I don’t know how Haig pulled it off, but he somehow managed to call forth those “What if I’d done this, instead of that?” emotions that all of us have experienced throughout our lives. I really hope you like it as much as I did. (Fingers crossed!)

Finished "Dead on Arrival." It was actually more like Stephen King meets Dean Koontz. Pretty good. I was expecting more from the ending.

Uncle_ricky,I just finished TH1RT3EN by Steve Cavanagh #4 in the Eddie Flynn series and I really liked it. I haven't read #3 yet and obviously a few things happened in #3 that are referenced in #4 but each book can stand on it's own. I hope #3 arrives to the library soon and then will read the latest.

Thanks so much for bringing this author and series to my attention.

Wasn’t it a riot, Sugar? It’s the book that first caught my attention to Mr. Cavanagh, but I had to read the first three before I dug into it. (It was worth the wait!) I’m so glad you liked it!

Last night I finished Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns, her debut. Published in 2010, it’s a phenomenal non-fiction epic about the migration of African-Americans from the Deep South (and the awful, awful, awful Jim Crow laws) to the northern states and to California. It was extremely heartbreaking to read all the vicious cruelties inflicted on the individuals the book focuses on. Ms. Wilkerson’s most recent work, Caste, is one of the most celebrated non-fiction books of the past couple of years. I expect it to be just as good, if not better, than her debut.

How to Raise an Elephant by Alexander McCall Smith is the latest of the No.1 Ladies Detective Series and it was ok. Pretty typical of the series, I think the last few books have been a bit less fun or interesting but I will continue the series. I was actually surprised I enjoyed the series as whilst I was a book store manager I didn't think they seemed appealing at all.

Tonight I finished Matthew McConaughey's terrific Greenlights. I've liked a few of his movies, but I've mostly been indifferent since he's never bothered me nor has he ever wowed me. But this book was such a fun read that I have vowed to watch as many of his films as I can (the ones I haven't seen, I mean). He's really quite an interesting human being and his is the type of humility that is so very rare, especially for someone as prominent in show business as he is. Highly recommended!

I started Greenlights yesterday and I am loving it! The story about his time as an exchange student had me laughing out loud.

I thought a book titled Leonard and Hungry Paul with a cover including a fish and scrabble tiles would be a fun quirky read. It wasn't bad just not all I thought it might or could be.

I started The Constant Rabbit by Jasper Fforde but am not sure if I will continue to read it. I can't decide if it is annoyingly convoluted or I just need to read a bit more to give it a chance. If anyone has read this and it is worth more time, please let me know.

I am also reading The Language of Secrets by Dianne Dixon.

As I was reading Greenlights last night, imagine my surprise and delight when I see that he wrote about going to the Catfish Station to watch the all blind Blue Mist band! Our own Nino's husband's band! So cool.

Amazing!!! And I’m glad the Australia section made you laugh. I was howling through every sentence of that chapter, just about. 😂😂😂
