December Book Recommendations

It’s that time again–Willie’s Women had their monthly book recommendations. A small group met briefly on Zoom to offer their suggestions to whet your appetite for both fiction and nonfiction.

Read below to learn this month’s recommendations!

BERTHA-ROSE; Bertha Rose recently completed The Big Finish by Brooke Fossey for her local book club and really enjoyed the surprise ending. She also recently read Michelle Obama’s Becoming.

CAROL; Carol is a fan of Lisa See and is currently reading Flower Net. Presently Carol isn’t very far into the book but so far she is enjoying it.

KARI; Kari read an interview on Jeffrey Archer in a Viking Cruises magazine. The article mentioned his latest, Hidden in Plain Sight, but after reading the interview, Kari expressed most interest in reading his Kane and Abel trilogy.

CHRISTINE: Christine is currently reading Juliet Blackwell’s The Vinyards of Champagne and enthusiastically mentioned several titles and series by this author.

PENI JO; Hillbilly Elegy; A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance is the autobiography of a young man growing up in a poor part of Kentucky. His dysfunctional family includes a well-meaning but tough grandmother and an abusive drug-addicted mother. Despite so much against him, J.D. joins the Marines and later graduates from Yale. Heart-wrenching but at the same time uplifting.

Willie’s Women meets on Zoom the 2nd Monday of every month unless otherwise specified.
