Yesterday my Willie’s Red Hat Women attended our first Book Discussion/Recommendation on Zoom. It was a lot of fun and we covered several different genres. Thanks especially to Leigh Ann, Queen of the Zoomers, for allowing the use of her Zoom Room!
LEIGH ANN’S RECOMMENDATIONS: The Boob Girls: The Burned Out Old Broads of Table 12 by Joy Johnson. After reading the first three sentences, Leigh Ann says she was hooked. There will be 12 books in this series about 4 women friends who live in a retirement home and their adventures. “Funny as hell!” Leigh Ann says. Leigh Ann also enjoyed Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum Series.
BARBARA’S RECOMMENDATIONS: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow and The Fault In Our Stars by John Green and Nicola Winstanly. “One of the best books I’ve ever read,” Barbara says of The Ten Thousand Doors of January, calling it “A book within a book.” Highly recommended! Barbara also enjoyed The Fault In Our Stars.
KARI’S RECOMMENDATIONS: Kari is a big fan of Nora Roberts and mentioned several titles and trilogies she enjoyed by this author. She even enthusiastically mentioned the author’s very first novel, The Irish Thoroughbred.
CHRISTINE’S RECOMMENDATIONS: Christine recommends the Amelia Peabody Series by Elizabeth Peters. She also enjoys Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher Series. Christine is looking forward to meeting this Australian author sometime next year!
PENI JO’S RECOMMENDATION: I had read Jill Bolte Taylor’s My Stroke of Insight a few years ago but found it so fascinating I had to recommend it. The author, a neuroscientist, maintains her awareness while suffering a stroke, and knows exactly what part of the brain is being affected as it’s happening.
Our next book discussion/recommendation is scheduled for October 12, 3pm Eastern time on ZOOM, open to Red Hat Zoomers but I will post the recommendations here on my blog for all to read later.
Happy reading all!
