94 The Racketeer by John Grisham

Many wonderful books this month.  I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite.  The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, was great.  As I read, I also told the story to Bob.  We read entirely different things, but he found the story intriguing, too.

I already did a review of The End of Your Life Book Club.  It's a knockout memoir.  You can read the review here.  The title sounds maudlin, the book is not.

Visiting Tom is another memoir about life in rural Wisconsin.  The author Michael Perry is also a singer/songwriter, and I heard his voice as I read the book.  It's a wonderful read.

Each of Lisa Genova's novels deals with "brain matters".  Still Alice was about early onset Alzheimer's disease, and Left Neglected dealt with losing awareness of everything on the left side.   Love Anthony deals with autism.  Like her other books, this one is brilliant.

This was a good month for reading favorite authors.  John Grisham, John Sandford and Jo Nesbo did not disappoint.  While my husband was in the hospital last week I read 4 novellas, on my nook, by favorites Barry Eisler and Michael Connelly.
