Hi to everybody in my lot land, I have been stuck in a rut of rereading culinary mysteries rereading older ones of each series that I read in the past and forgot them. Now I am reading a serious mystery call "Before the fall" by Noah Hawley. I didn't pick this out myself as it is for my Book Club on Saturday. It is a great book. So, I am wondering what my lotters are reading or read and remember it to be particularly good? Can anybody sugest a book i will enjoy? I will also give a book my book club leader suggested "A man called ove" I am going to read it soon I have it available to me from an online book club called Playster. Thank you for any suggestion!

Now you would need to check but the book it something like A boy called it. it's a true story of abuse that one boy had suffered at the hands of his mom. His brother also wrote a book saying that there was no abuse. That book will forever be fresh in my mind. I could barely put it down. I could not ever imagine anyone living to tell that story. I found it at the library.

@sharon6345 Thank you for the suggestion. I will tell my friends in the library about it and see if they can name the book. I will try to look it up on my Kindle and see if I find anything like that.

@Marty1 Yes that should be very close to what it is called. or a boy named it. Something like that. good luck.

@sharon6345 I think it may be A Child Called It. I also read it many years ago.

@Marty1 .....The ones I know are old, not new ones. Like White Oriander. I enjoyed reading it. The author's style was neat. I will try to think of others.

Sorry but I don't really like to recommend books as we all have our different genres that we love. For me, it is a lot of history.

@matlina No problem I understand. I am just confused wit what I want to read. I feel like it is a waste of time reading mysteries that sometimes eventually end up a bit "silly" but I enjoy them so much. But feel as if other readers are looking down at me for reading them

I have not heard of the series you are reading now @Marty1 but I have probably read something similar. Right now I am juggling three fascinating books, all non-fiction and of various genres. The one still left over from last month is called The Black Calhouns written by Lena Horne's granddaughter about the black persons experience through slavery, Civil war, Emancipation, Civil rights and of course the Entertainment industry; the second is The Presidents and UFO's : A Secret History from FDR to Obama written by Larry Holcombe and The Mystery of the SHEMITAH: The 3,000-Year old Mystery by Jonathan Cahn . . . all are very good for making the mind step out of its prison

@enlightenedpsych2 I think they all sound good. Especially the Presidents and UFO's as I am a big fan of reading about the subject. I think President and UFO's would be an interesting look on te subject! The rest of the books sound great going to look for all them in the library!

What's the name of your book club? I'm not sure about what particular genre is your point of interest. I just re-read "The Little Prince" by Antoine De Saint Exupery. I hope you had read this book before.

@megatron777 I am sorry i have not read the little prince I don't know why I have not read so many books when others suggest them. No name for book club just book club But there is no particular kind of book we read. Anybody can suggest a book and the leader will consider it
