Kate's Favourite Things - February 2017

By Thismomloves @ThisMomLoves
January was a busy month around here but I have four great titles to recommend today!
What She Knew by Gilly MacMillan
This was one of the best books I've read in a long time, in my favorite suspense/thriller genre. A missing boy, a frantic mother and a multitude of suspects. Excellent read.

The Perfect Girl by Gilly MacMillan
Because once I discover a great writer, I have to read another one of her books! I had no idea who the murderer really was in this multiple-perspectives novel. Random point: I noted with interest that the British author used the word "posh" twice in a less than flattering context, making me question whether or not I chose to identify with the right Spice Girl in my childhood. In my defense, she seems to have done well for herself. (And I am not spicy, sporty, scary or a baby so my options were limited.)
Faithful by Alice Hoffman
Responsible for a tragedy, Shelby Richmond's life is changed forever. This is the story of how she (eventually) tries to get it back. While I won't tell you which character is being referred to in the following quote, I will tell you that it made me close my book and have a little cry - as a daughter and as a mother - before resuming my read:
"She doesn't have a mother anymore. There's no one to whom she's the most important person in the world."

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
This autobiography of a neurosurgeon's battle with lung cancer was on almost every must-read list last year and I finally got around to it. I wasn't disappointed.
