New month, new author for our Online Reading Challenge! This month we’re reading books by and similar to Jojo Moyes.
Jojo Moyes writes about women, friendship and community. Many of her novels are classified as romance, but her newer titles are catalogued as fiction. Her break-out novel was Me Before You, followed by After You and Still Me. In addition she’s written favorites such as The Girl You Left Behind and The Giver of Stars.
If you’ve read everything by Moyes, or would like to try similar authors, take a look at these titles:
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
Landline by Ranbow Rowell
One Day by David Nicholls
The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
You Me Everything by Catherine Issac
Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson
Welcome to Pine Away Motel and Cabins by Katarina Bivald
The Oysterville Sewing Circle by Susan Wiggs
Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani
Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal
Lots of great choices, right? I’m planning to read The Giver of Stars which picked up a lot of interest when Reese Witherspoon chose it for her book club. It’s also garnered some controversy and mixed reviews since it was released a few months after another book on the same topic, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Richardson was published (which I have read and it is excellent) The topic is fascinating – the horseback librarians of rural Appalachia during the Great Depression – and I’m looking forward to seeing how this compares to Book Woman.
What about you – what will you be reading this month?
