In November…

DeniseNewtonWrites says of Phosphorescence by Julia Baird, “It’s a broad ranging exploration of what gives joy, wonder, passion, hope, purpose; especially what keeps people going during the hard times…..[it] is a book to be savoured, enjoyed, mulled over and returned to again and again.”

#########

The Last Castle: The Epic Story of Love, Loss, and American Royalty in the Nation’s Largest Home by Denise Kiernan is about the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC, and the people involved with it. Barbara of StrayThoughts felt it was “…. a flowing and fascinating story…..

####

Beyond the Call [by Lee Trimble and Jeremy Dronfield] is the well-written, fast paced account of one of the 20th century’s little known rescue operations. Consider it must reading for anyone interested in World War II, or a thrilling rescue story.” writes Maphead

#####

Tracey of Carpe Librum recommends How To Breakup With Friends by Dr Hannah Korrell, “For those who have never confronted a friend over their poor behaviour and have felt powerless to stop friends treating them badly, this is a must read! It will empower you to ditch your toxic friend and re-invest that time somewhere else.”

#####

“Reading Family in Six Tones [by Lan Cao and Harlan Margaret Van Cao] immerses us in the refugee experience…..the loss, the trauma, the fear, the uncertainty, the confusion, and the longing for home.” writes Carol at The Reading Ladies Book Club, “It is an honest, heartfelt, detailed, and ambitious read.”

    Hi Shellyrae, I thought I’d already added H is for Hawk but I hadn’t. I also meant to put it under Nature, not Memoir, so I have two books under Memoir. Sorry about that!

    I hoped to read three this year, but I’ve only read 2 I think and I don’t think I linked one of them. Oh well, next year…
