BERTHA-ROSE Enjoyed How to Pronounce Knife by Canadian author Souvankham Thammavongsa. This book won a Giller Award. She rated the book 3.5 stars.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

BERNADETTE, our newest Willie’s Woman, says she doesn’t finish a book unless it rates 5 stars! She mentioned Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale, Michelle Obama’s Becoming, I.M. by Isaac Mizarahi and Me by Katherine Hepburn.

CHRISTINE is re-reading her Russell & Holmes books and also Elizabeth Peters’s Amelia Peabody series. She’s also looking forward to reading Amelia Edwards’s A Thousand Miles Up the Nile, Kerry Greenwood’s Death in Dalesford, Tell Me Why by Archie Roach and Alter Egos: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the Twilight Struggle Over American Power by Mark Landler.

PENI JO: Something for those who enjoy using datebooks and journals; A while back I got into the whole “bullet journal” phenomenon, which I really liked, but got discouraged when my efforts at creativity just looked sloppy next to the true artists. But then I came across Denise Albright’s journals and stickers, and they were exactly what I wished I could create; colorful, positive, fun. So thanks to this line of products, I am back to bullet journaling! I give this datebook 5 stars.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Next book discussion is June 14th. Non-RHS members may join one time.
