It’s December so I’m starting to see all kinds of lists for best of this or worst of that. I’m going to add my two cents for all the books I’ve read this year. Goodreads tracks them for me and they say I’m ahead of schedule for 2021. That means I read a lot!
I became addicted to World War II stories surrounding the Holocaust. Those aren’t for everyone but I learned so much about things that happened in different parts of the world that I never learned in school. I found these stories fascinating.
When We Meet Again by Kristen Harmel – German POW’s were sent to Florida to work the sugar cane fields. Wrapped up with a love story and I couldn’t put it down.
The Alice Network by Kate Quinn – The power of women when the world said they were worthless is uplifting.
The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles – A young woman in Paris defends her love of her dream job in the American library in Paris during German occupation.
I love to read books on a variety of topics so these are some others that need to be on your to read list.
The Secrets Between Us by Thrity Umrigar
West With Giraffes by Lynda Rockledge
Call Your Daughter Home by Deb Sprea
Firefly Lane by Kristen Hannah
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I Thought You Said This Would Work by Anne Garvin
That’s my list for 2021. I’m hoping 2022 turns out to be even better. Happy reading in the New Year!
