2017 Reading List September

   Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (French)  The Reader Crowned with Flowers, or Virgil's Muse, 1845

Wonder by R. J. Palacio (library) reminded me of Mask, that movie with Cher. I enjoyed that the story was told from the points of view of many of the different characters.
The Stars In Our Eyes by Julie Klam (library) Why are we so obsessed with celebrities? This book tries to answer that question. I really enjoyed it.
Sundown Towns by James W. Loewen (library) A form of racism that I had no idea existed...and I grew up in the south!! Fascinating.
The Double Jinx Mystery by Carolyn Keene Reading for book club
My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier (library) Creepy, is it a murder mystery?

A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley (library) The book that the movie Lion was based on. Very good!! So amazing this story.
Badlands by C.J. Box Murder mystery continuation of the characters encountered in The Highway by the same author.
The Beguiled by Thomas Cullinan (library) I had seen the Clint Eastwood movie years and years ago and they have a remake coming out soon, so I decided to finally read the book. I enjoyed it very much. Warning, it is a bit dark, if you are  not already familiar with the story.
The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick (audiobook) listening to this one in the car this month.
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood (library)
The Last Tudor by Philippa Gregory (library)
