Happy New Year everyone! Had a bit of trouble posting at the end of my 2019 thread - so best wishes for a wonderful New Year to all of you!

1. Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki - A terrific graphic novel recommended by Joe. A great story involving young love, toxic relationships, friendship - and growing up.

Edited: Jan 13, 5:03pm Top

2. Ali Cross by James Patterson - A middle grade novel involving the young son of Alex Cross, one of my favorite Patterson characters. It was an okay story, but not totally believable at all points.

3. The Dolls by James Patterson with Kecia Bal - This BookShot was a bit too far-fetched in plot for me to recommend.

4. The Handmaid’s Tale: The Graphic Novel by Margaret Atwood with art and adaptation by Renee Nault - I first read The Handmaid’s Tale many years ago. It was actually the first book I ever stayed up all night to read. I’ve watched the television series and read The Testaments, but it was really wonderful to go back to the “original” - and the art is fabulous.

5. > The Honey Bus: A Memoir of Loss, Courage and a Girl Saved by Bees by Meredith May - I loves memoirs and I’m drawn to any story involving bees. I really enjoyed this book - a story of a young girl whose parents divorce and whose mother deteriorates day after day. May was lucky to live with her grandparents (and her mother0 - particularly her grandfather who helped her cope by involving her in his beekeeping business.

6. > The Spring House by Mary Ellen Taylor - A lovely story about a small town and its history - and the woman whose life is made better by living there.
