My Favorite Books of 2019

It’s so hard to choose. Here is the list of the books I enjoyed the most. In no special order.

On The Plain of Snakes

When shoppers overhear me talking to another customer about ON THE PLAIN OF SNAKES  at Copperfish, they can feel the excitement in my voice. I am so passionate about this non-fiction book. You simply have to read it!

Olive, Again

I love the crusty character of Olive Kitteridge. Now she’s older and somewhat wiser, and I love her even more.

Giver of Stars

Jojo Moyes brings us a wonderful insightful novel about the traveling librarians here in our country during the depression. This one is a real keeper. Moyes has really stepped it up.

The Summer Guests

I loved THE SUMMER GUESTS so much that I believe every single soul living in coastal areas that are prone to hurricane evacuations should be required to read this wonderful novel.


AKIN is beautifully written and a delight to read. The old professor and the eleven-year-old boy will have you rolling on the floor in stitches, laughing your head off. It’s also quite poignant.

The Women of the Copper Country

Based on the life of Annie Clements, THE WOMEN OF THE COPPER COUNTRY is a real force filled with strong women and real history.

Chances Are

Richard Russo has knocked it out of the reading park with CHANCES ARE.  Most of you will remember the summer of 69. Here it is in all its glory.

Tell Me A Story


What a joy that Cassandra King Conroy has decided to share parts of her life with Pat Conroy with us. I savored every page.

Save Me The Plums

SAVE ME THE PLUMS is a book to truly be devoured. And so I did.

Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones & The Six


I am smiling right now just thinking about how much I loved DAISY JONES. Do not miss this one.

The Winemaker’s Wife


My husband and I love good champagne. Harmel serves THE WINE MAKER’S WIFE in a bubbly glass filled with secrets and the  French wine country. Just perfect.

  1. Hi, I took your recommendation and got “The Women of the Copper Country” from the library and loved it.  Being from Michigan (tho 52 years here in Naples), there was so much information that I had forgotten.  The strength that women have is illuminated in this beautiful bllk!

    Thanks so much,Wilma Jones
