Book Club

I have always had this love affair with books, they have always been there for me; on long plane rides, bus journeys,on rainy days, sunny days and in strange foreign places. I can remember clearly where I read certain books - I recall reading The Unbearable Lightness of Being, while traveling with my sister through Europe one summer -what an impact that book had on me! I know exactly where I was when I read Any Human Heart and I recall even where I sat in Burma and read Burmese Days. So, here are what I consider some good reads for this rainy weekend. Oh and Happy Friday. xoxo
Bel Canto is one of my all time top of the list books. What a story. 

What I Loved was what every good book should have: a compelling protagonist, and a gripping narrative
This one is on my list...I've heard good things about it. 
Any Human Heart is one of my favorite all time books - please read it. You will laugh, you will cry and wont be able to put it down. 
I think I read this one in two sittings, a real page turner about loving someone and what that all entails. 
This is the first in a trilogy entitled "Zuckerman Series", pick them all up, you wont be disappointed. 
The Road was so engaging, and what an ending.

We like so many of the same books... Unbearable Lightness is one of my favourite books ever. And Any Human Heart is on that list too!

I really enjoyed What I Loved too and her latest (The Sorrows of an American) deeply moved me.

The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry has been my favourite recent read! I think you'd love it too!
