    #47 - Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal - #1 in the Maggie Hope series. This book reminds me of the Maisie Dobbs series.

      75. Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout.
      Strangely interesting, but weird book. 3 stars

      Achieved yearly reading goal of 75 books!

      41. The New Good Life: Living Better Than Ever in an Age of Less by John Robbins - Another good book by the son of the Baskin-Robbins founder who refused to take over the business and settled into a life of living with less. A bit of repetition of previous books but still good. 4/5

        46. Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore: A Novel...by Matthew Sullivan (Audio) I saw this on Woolfan list & found it a worthy listen.

        Engaging characters (& the bibliomystery angle) was very interesting. Tightly plotted mystery within mysteries all character-driven & essential to the story.

            #48 Princess Elizabeth's Spy by Susan Elia MacNeal. #2 in the Maggie Hope series. I was hoping I would enjoy this series as much as the Maisie Dobbs series but they aren't as good. I listened to both #1 and #2 as audiobooks and there was a change in the narrator and I really dislike the one who read book #2. I found her voice really annoying.

                42. Healthy at 100 - John Robbins - Studying the longevity cultures - should be mandatory reading for anyone living in a "first world" country. 6/5

                  #49 Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. Wow, I don't know how to rate this book. It was the sickest mystery I've ever read. The main character is part of a truly sick, toxic family. It was a good mystery but don't read it if you can't handle toxic families.

                    43. Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Save Your Life and Our World - John Robbins - another great book by Robbins - highly recommended - a little out of date but no less relevant. 5/5

                      #50 - Lies Jane Austen Told Me by Julie Wright. I needed a "palette cleanser" after that sick psychological thriller I read so I read a silly romance.

                        47. The Death of Mrs. Westaway...Ruth Ware (Audio)
                        Excellent mystery. Narrator was very good.

                          lovestostitch It's was so enjoyable. I listened all day yesterday. Couldn't wait to get in the car & finish this morning!

                          It was especially interesting to me because my book club read it on my recommendation. When we discussed it, a number of the women hated it. When we tried to figure out why they hated it, we figured out they didn't get it and explaining the twists about the relationships and the clues from the photo didn't help. The book did have some good twists.

                          I tried listening and it just took forever for the story to develop. The author just kept repeating what we already knew over and over. I gave up.
