Book tastes

I love novels that I can't put down, especially those set in Europe. Last year my Santa buddy gave me Sarah's Key, and it was fantastic. Historical novels can be good, too. I've been reading the Outlander series and love those.

Don't get this!

My library includes all of my husband's books as well. Please don't get anything superhero related. I know you will see a lot of that in my library, but I am NOT interested. I am also not interested in learning Greek. And I do not need anymore psychology/psychiatry books. We have a lot in our library because we both work in the field.

Comments/suggestions

Limelite: Betting this would be a fit and a hit based on the success of last year's Santa selection: "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand" by Helen Simonson. (Wed, 25 Nov 2015 18:25:04 -0500)

yoyogod: I tried to pick books from my library that I enjoyed and were set in Europe. Plus I went with Limelite's suggestion since I was having a hard time. I hope you enjoy the books. (Thu, 10 Dec 2015 13:15:11 -0500)

.Monkey.: The Eight by Katherine Neville? Takes place in Europe and other places, fun intriguing historical fic! (Fri, 18 Dec 2015 16:41:32 -0500)

Capybara_99: Historical novel -- "Orphan Train" by Christina Baker Kline. Not set in Europe, but think she'd find it involving. (Fri, 18 Dec 2015 16:54:06 -0500)
