  1. My parents are really into Kate Atkinson and another friend just recommended her Case Studies to me. I think I need to read one of her books and see what it's all about.

    1. I love Life After Life but needed to talk about it afterwards. It is pretty confusing at first.

  2. I want to read more of Gaskell's books, too. :)

  3. Oh, I love Mary Oliver's poetry. She was truly talented.

    My TTT .

  4. You've got great authors on this list! I highly recommend Kate Atkinson, Katherine Arden, and Connie Willis.

  5. I plan to read more Elizabeth Gaskell. I hope to read Wives and Daughters this year. I am reading my first Mary Oliver collection.

    This is a great list.

  6. I've never read Terry Pratchett but I've heard a lot of good things!

  7. I loved "Life after Life" but only read one in her Jackson Brodie series and didn't feel compelled to continue. I didn't dislike it, but it didn't grab me.

  8. I like your spin on the topic. I think the only George Eliot books I’ve read are Middlemarch and Silas Marner!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  9. I really need to get to those books from Atkinson.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
