Book tastes

I like a good story and superb writing, never mind the genre. Fiction, non-fiction and anything between is great.

Don't get this!

Books I've already listed on LibraryThing. Sequels. Bad writing.

elphie93: Julienne and I have very similar tastes! I'd suggest Perfume by Patrick Süskind, The Good People or Burial Rites by Hannah Kent or The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman. (Thu, 15 Nov 2018 17:48:48 -0500)

EllsieFind: I would suggest Richard Powers' new book The Understory. Such an excellent writer. Best book of 2018 for me. An earlier novel of his is Gain. Loved that one, too. (Wed, 21 Nov 2018 09:57:19 -0500)

shearon: I suggest A Gentleman in Moscow -- my favorite in 2018 -- not in her library so far - satisfies the "good story and superb writing: criteria, I think (Wed, 28 Nov 2018 19:51:43 -0500)

Ameise1: Merry Christmas, Julienne. I loved all four books and hope you enjoy them as well. (Sun, 02 Dec 2018 09:58:42 -0500)

lorannen: Removed One Morning Like a Bird (0340825154) due to availability. Replaced with Gain (B003H4I486), suggested by EllsieFind.

Done. (Wed, 19 Dec 2018 20:32:46 -0500)
