Audra’s Book Suggestions

I have read less this year than since before I got a library card.   So tragic!  But reading more is on my list of 2024’s resolutions!  

Recently Read and Really Liked:  The Rachel Incident: A novel

Meanwhile here are three I plan to read ASAP:

  1. The Covenant of Water (Oprah’s Book Club)
  2. The It Girl (Ruth Ware)
  3. It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover (about to be a Major Motion Picture)
  4. The Feeling of Falling in Love (a YA recent fave)
  5. Demon Copperhead (The Title scares me but I keep being told to read it plus I LOVE Barbara Kingsolver!)
