|Kim B's Book Lists|
|No Winter Allowed! (18 titles)
By now you are probably very tired of winter. Escape the snow and sub-zero temperatures by reading a book that has no winter scenes.
|Your Best Life (13 titles)
"If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought." ~ Peace Pilgrim
|Notable Deaths in 2013 (21 titles)
Famous people who died in 2013, including authors, singers, actors, and astronauts.
|Humdinger Reads (46 titles)
|If You Like Wally Lamb (20 titles)
She's Come Undone is one of my all-time favorite novels. The main character Dolores Price, masterfully created by Lamb, is unforgettable. You can't believe a male author totally "got" Dolores in her many moods and struggles. I am now reading (and loving) his new novel We are Water. If you are a Wally Lamb fan, you probably will enjoy the following novels that also excel in brilliant character development.

|The Rosie project |
by Simsion, Graeme C.
Delightful novel; many laugh-out-loud moments as socially awkward yet endearing professor Don Tillman seeks a wife. posted Jan 15, 2014 at 10:59AM
|Everything I need to know I learned from a Little Golden Book |
by Diane E. Muldrow
If you read Little Golden Books as a child, don’t miss this charmer for adults! posted Jan 13, 2014 at 9:50AM
|The husband’s secret |
by Liane Moriarty
What a page-turner! Liane Moriarty’s writing style reminds me of Elizabeth Strout’s. The novel’s moral dilemmas make it a great book club choice. posted Dec 26, 2013 at 12:49PM
|Sister mother husband dog, etc. |
by Delia Ephron
Entertaining essays about Delia’s life. I was especially interested in her essay about her famous sister Nora. The chapter on their mother was brutally honest and sad. I also now want to see Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, a movie that made a huge impression on Delia in her youth. posted Dec 16, 2013 at 2:22PM
|This is the story of a happy marriage [sound recording] |
by Patchett, Ann.
It was pure bliss listening to Ann Patchett read her intelligent, often hilarious and wise essays. Ann reflects on her writing career, childhood observances, the long road to her second marriage, and her independent bookstore in Nashville. I really hated to see this book end. posted Dec 3, 2013 at 9:10AM
