August Book Discussion

Willie presided over book discussion donning her new reading glasses

Willie’s Women were honored to have 3 guests join them for book discussion this month.

WYNELLE, Guest #1, visited us once before and told us how she enjoys reading about the kings and queens of England. She is considering becoming a member of Willie’s Women and we would be delighted to have her!

ANDREA, Guest #2, has also joined us once before. Andrea enjoys reading about the Amish and says during the summer she enjoys “garbage books” (fiction) and prefers to read books where she’ll learn something during the winter. Her recommendation was Danielle Steele’s A Perfect Life. She gives it 4 stars.

BERNADETTE Guest #3 came in a bit late but was full of good recommendations. She is in charge of my own local book club and this month I will be heading a discussion on Marie Benedict’s The Only Woman in the Room (4.5 stars) Bernadette’s other recommendations were Cassandra Speaks by Elizabeth Lesser about how history has treated women and how would history be told differently if written by women (5 stars). Bernadette’s 3rd recommendation was See No Stranger by Valerie Kaur about uniting people with “radical love” and not focusing on our differences (4 stars).

BERTHA-ROSE wished JENNY had been present to thank her for telling her about Kim Edwards’s books, The Memory Keeper’s Daughter and Lake of Dreams. Bertha-Rose enjoyed them very much, giving them 4 out of 5 stars. Later she shared with us that her college-age grandson recommended she read Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita so she is currently reading that.

KARI dear sweet Kari said Letters to Kezia by yours truly made her cry! She loves books that get her involved with the characters. Did this author’s heart good to hear that someone is enjoying my trilogy so much 🙂

CHRISTINE has been reading a couple of new series. She gives July Mulhern’s The Country Club Murders series 4 stars and is on book 9 of a series of 13. Another series she is enjoying is Sarah Rosett’s On the Run Internationa Mysteries to which she gives 4 stars. Christine granted The Engineer’s Wife by Tracey Emerson Wood 5 stars.

PENI JO: I really enjoyed The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes. about the WPA Pack Horse Librarians of Kentucky. 4.5 stars!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Willie’s Women meets on Zoom at 3pm Eastern on the 2nd Monday of each month. Non-RHS members are invited to attend one time so feel free to join us!
