They were by turns hear Actually, three point five stars. It chronicles the life of a gal named Lucy, whose parents marry her off at 15 in the year to a 50 year old Civil War vet. Thank god other people hated Gone Girl. If you have added editions, or noted number of times read previously, they have taken this into account. I was shocked by the blatant racism in this story. The story of Lila and Elena through the years was captivating.
Thanks for letting me know! I loved the storyteller that was the first one I read by her. I thought was Eleanor and Park was just OK. Read in 24 hours or less. I was excited to see Sleeping Giants on your list! Mellissa, I just want to say that Your book, Well Fed 2, is my book of choice everyday! Julie was kidnapped from her own home when she was thirteen, and eight years later, the mystery is unsolved.

Unputdownable: 17 books I read in 24 hours or less (because they were just that good)
A Man Called Ove was my most recent unputdownable. I read this the first time when I was supposed to be studying sttanger a final the next day; I intended to read a couple chapters, but read the whole thing and never did get any studying done. I love that book!
Provenance by Donna Drew Sawyer. Loved the Girl before.
I find Chris Bojalian books to be hour page turners for sure. Yellow Crocus, Laila Ibrahim — historical fiction about a Southern black woman working for wealthy Plantation owners. Still alice was so good and inside the obriens was also good.
Even though part of me wants to read her books slowly so that I can enjoy them longer, I raced through them. Subject to credit approval. Those Girls was the same way!! It’s hard for me eued articulate what it is exactly that I loved so much about these stories, aside of course from the impeccable voices and excellent writing, but I’ll try. I used to be a fan znd Lee Smith.

Well this list was dangerous to my TBR list! My newest unputdownable was very long, but so good. It was another great story. I rarely sit down and read a book in one sitting but yesterday I almost finished The Dry. You can check it out on Amazon.
I had read a few of these and enjoyed them, so downloaded a couple of these as audiobooks and have loved them! Abbott kept me guessing the whole way through: Have one to sell? In this contemporary psychological thriller, a British single mother gives her 8-year-old son permission to run ahead a little on their evening walk in the park It’s all just life after all, these things happen to everyonejust in the course of living.
Typically I like Lee Smith’s writing, but found that I couldn’t identify with many of the characters in the stories and the stories almost implausible. But I read the first one in about 3 days mrz is quick for a page book!
Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger by Lee Smith
I am staying away from The Lake House based on the description. Loved the complex, believable characters in the sgnopsis of World War II. I really enjoyed it — and it literally took me 24 hours. Liane Moriarity has become my new favorite author!!! The book was 14 short stories.
If not, I am very sorry for you indeed. I crave books that pull me in, make me forget the outside world. She is now my source for must have books. Have read sea of tranquility like times and can always pick it up on a day when the mood for moody teenagers hits….
Susan Meissner A Fall of Marigolds is a new favorite author of thd. They must all be good because my library was out of ALL of them! I stayed up way too late reading it! Oh how I loved this book. So different from the movie. Then one day, the doorbell rings, and it’s Julie. Thanks for letting me know!
Yes, the second one is what I meant. Oh to be loved like she was!!! I was reading the same ideas over and over.
