This summer I have been hooked on Kristin Hannah. I'm about to read Distant Shores I've just read between Sisters. What have you read. And what would you recommend?

I loved Firefly Lane and I enjoyed Magic Hour and Winter's Garden, I have lots of other on my TBR but haven't gotten to them yet.  I pick her books up whenever I see them because they all do seem good.

I love them all, but especially Firefly Lane.

I pretty much buy her books when they come out.

You should read Night Road. It is one of her newest books and it was a wonderful book to read. :)

I have 6 more of her's on my TBR!surprise  I need to get reading!

I am in the slackest book club ever, (more into wine than organized reading) and we can never talk everyone into reading the same book, but last year we did all read Firely Lane  and we reread Forever by Judy Blume.

I also loved Firefly Lane True Colors was pretty good too. I haven't read anything else by her yet but I plan to in the future.

I've only read one: Once in Every Life.  Love it. I have five books that are comfort reads--I read them over and over.  And Once in Every Life is one of the top two.

I have Angel falls but couldn't get through it.  It is on my list if anyone is interested in it.

So far I have only read Firefly Lane and Winter Garden.  I really liked Firefly lane and I almost gave up on Winter Garden. I had a really hard time getting into that one.  Due to my 8th grade teacher, if I'm not hooked on a book by about...page 30 or so, I usually give up on it.  I have a bunch more to read soon though! I hope those ones will be good!
