Zooming It

11 Jun

Yes, we are leaving a post-Covid world and venturing outside. But, I must admit that I have enjoyed my Zoom experiences with best-selling authors.

I have had the opportunity to listen to President Bill Clinton, James Patterson, Jennifer Weiner, Jodi Picoult, Walter Mosley, Kristen Hannah, Dan Abrams and more.

Better yet, most of the talks have been free. I was able to access many authors through the Streicker Center and my local JCC. In fact, here is the recording of President Clinton and James Patterson talking about their new book The President’s Daughter, where the President’s daughter is kidnapped. (It’s fiction!) Click here to view their dynamic talk with moderator Walter Mosley.

Summer Sizzling Novels

2 Aug

If you liked Gone Girl, you will like these summer picks. All are fast-paced novels, with more twists and turns than State Route 1 down the coast in California.

If you were not a fan of Gone Girl, with an unreliable narrator, you probably will not like most of these.

So, my favorite is The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. Yes, it’s confusing with the narrators, but stick with it for the multiple surprises at the end. I guarantee you will not figure out the ending!

Another psychological thriller is The Wife by Alafair Burke. Again, another marriage mistake. Who is the con artist? It will keep you flipping the pages.

 

Then, there is the Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn. It reminds me of the Hitchcock classic movie, Rear Window. Yes, someone sees a murder being committed.

Finally, there is The President is Missing. How can you go wrong with the dynamic duo of James Patterson and Bill Clinton? Forget the politics and read a thriller!

What are your beach reads this summer?
