  • I just read Outline and Transit by Rachel Cusk (novels) and Love & Trouble by Clare Dederer (memoir) and can recommend all 3!

  • This sounds so good! Thanks for the recommendation! Will buy it from my local bookstore, Locust Valley Books

  • I’m afraid I’m the dissenting voice here as I do not like this author at all. Just started the latest Le Carre and my daughter finally returned my copy of the last Robert Galbraith. To each her own.

  • The book about Bunny Mellon by Meryl Gordon is another fantastic book for a chilly, winter weekend – especially appealing to read about beautiful gardens in January!

  • I second the recommendation of Rachel Cusk’s Outline and Transit for a cozy weekend read, when you can give Cusk’s writing the full attention it demands.

  • I’m curious what you think. I read the galleys this summer and really did like it for what it was – a good thriller! It’s the author’s first book, he’s in his early 20’s and I think he (A.J. Finn is a pseudonym) has a big career ahead. He secured a huge deal for a first novel and the movie rights. Bravo!

  • About 2/3 of the way through The Woman in the Window – can’t put it down.

  • I’m curious about what SueM said as this is the author’s debut novel?
