Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey and A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler are both on my TBR list, and I walk past The Country of Ice Cream Star by Sandra Newman everyday at work and always glance at it.
But the others? Sadly, I haven’t heard of them and now wonder why. I know there are soo many books out there that will never cross my path but with all the time I spend online looking at publisher’s catalogs, reading book reviews from excellent blogger sites and working at a library, what’s the deal? I guess I can just look at this in a positive light and be pleased that I now have new women authors to familiarize myself with and more books to possibly add to my TBR list. Each title on this page will link you to Goodreads in case you find one interesting to read.
