Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan is Back in Marc Cameron's SHADOW OF THE DRAGON

by Donna Huber


When I finished college I no longer knew what I liked to read. What I had read as a young adult in high school no longer held my interest and the only reading I did in college was classics and academic reading. So I browsed the bookshelves in my parents' house and I came across Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series. I had seen the movies - The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Executive Orders - so I picked up Cardinal in the Kremlin and fell in love with Cold War-era espionage. I read every book I could find and eagerly awaited new books in the series.

2020 End of Year Wrap Up

by Donna Huber


Happy New Year's Eve! I don't know about you but some days I wondered if we would ever make it to the end of 2020. One shining light throughout the year though was great books. I think many of us (I know all of us at Girl Who Reads) hit a reading slump early in the pandemic but then we started having record-setting reading months. When we couldn't go out, when we needed a break from the 24/7 news, when we just wanted to escape life for a bit, we turned to books. Sometimes it was a favorite author or series and other times it was to discover new favorite authors and series. I wanted to take a moment to look back at some of the highlights of 2020 and thank the incredible writers that helped us through this very rough year.

The Secret of Plants in the Environment by Rishikesh Upadhyay ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


I love science and in particular biology. While I read a lot of different biological subjects my favorite are about animals, plants, and the environment. It's been a while since I read a book about plants so I was really looking forward to The Secret of Plants in the Environment by Rishikesh Upadhyay.

Here we are, the night before New Year's Eve. It feels like forever ago that 2020 was just beginning. It has been a most difficult year. I hope that you at least found some distraction and entertainment in the many great books that came out this year. At the end of each month, the staff of Girl Who Reads has named their favorite reads for the month. Have you enjoyed this feature? Should we continue to do so in 2021?

Jennifer Valenti Tackles a Difficult Subject in THE MAVERICK

by Susan Roberts


"Everyone needs to feel like they have a place here, Jane.  I told you this before and it's not just lip service.  Every one of us is part of a single thread that works together toward a common goal.  There can be no mavericks."  (p 144)

Secrets of Paris - 3 Books by Ella Carey

by Susan Roberts


All three of these novels are told in dual time periods with one in the present day and the other in Europe before, during, and after WWII.  They can each be read as stand-alones with no confusion, but they fit together so well that I suggest reading all three in order for the ultimate enjoyment.
