A Good Read Needed

I am coming up to some spare time (tell you more later) and need a good book or two.

Do any of you have a great recommendation?  I will be downloading them to my eReader!  



P.S. My machine is up and running.  I am in the process of stippling around all the flying geese of my Orca Bay quilt.  Then all that is left is the inner border and to stitch on the binding (its all ready to go)


  1. A great deal depends on what you like to read…mystery? Romance? Science Fiction? Here is my list:
    Suspect by Robert Crais; The Cassandra Project by Jack McDevitt; The Black Box by Michael Connelly; NYPD Red by James Patterson and Marshall Karp; Jane, the Woman Who Loved Tarzan by Robin Maxwell; The Forgotten Man by David Baldacci; Last Lawyer Standing by Douglas Corleone.

  2. I just finished reading 'Girl With a Pearl Earring' by Tracy Chevalier - loved it!!!

  3. Gone Girl has been on the NY top 10 since it came out in June of last year. It is awesome, check it out!

  4. Wow - where does one begin. Book of Negroes, or Any Known Blood by Lawrence Hill. Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. Or The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. That is of course if you can get them on your reader. Lately I've been reading J.A. Jance and Kathy Reichs - mysteries - actually Reichs books are the basis for the TV show Bones. Happy reading!

  5. If you have LOTS of spare time, I recommend the Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon. There are 8 books in the series, so far, and none are less than about 700 pages! But, they will keep your interest all the way through. You should read them in order, starting with Outlander.

    1. The Guernsey/Potato Peel Pie book (see above) is great. Also British & a lovely read, The House at Riverton by Kate Morton. For psychological thrillers: Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes; anything by S. J. Bolton (especially Awakenings or Blood Harvest); The Poison Tree by Erin Kelly; and Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson. Biography: The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls (wrenching but un-put-down-able) and Dirty Secret by Jesse Sholl (growing up the child of a hoarder).

  6. Oops, having lots of trouble here --- that was not a reply to Colleen's comment, but my comment! Sorry!


Thanks for stopping to view my blog. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my projects.
