Reading all the suggestions on these Tell Me What to Read posts is basically my favorite activity of all time (possibly even more than actually reading, if I’m allowed to say so).
Also, MULTIPLE people recommended The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and I just have to say, you guys are my kind of people. I read it years ago, when it first came out and my mom sent me her copy and I loved it (and wrote a review of it here). Then I listened to it again a year ago when we were in London and the book club I was in there read it. Y’all have great taste.
Anyway, here’s what I’ll be reading over the next three month: some non-fiction, middle grade fiction, and a best-selling historical fiction. I’d love it if you read along!
One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson // Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein // The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
Yay! I hope you enjoy One Summer. I may just pick it up to reread right along with you.

Oooh, I really enjoyed One Summer. I think it could have been edited down to be about a third shorter, but I did appreciate the research. 😉
So glad you'll be reading The Nightingale! I couldn't put it down and I'm fairly certain that all of my friends are tired of me telling them to read it. Enjoy!
Paige Flamm says
Oh! One Summer is definitely going on my list!

Great choices! I am reading The Nightingale for a book challenge this winter too. Looking forward to your review of it!! That first book looks like a good read too!
Loved the Nightingale. I'm going to check out the other two too.
Looks like you picked some good ones. I went and added One Summer to my to-read pile as I was perusing what others suggested for you. I loved At Home.

I can't wait to hear what you think about Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library! It sounds so fun!
Oh I loved The Nightingale. I will have to add the others to my list too.
I am so excited for you to read Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library! I read it recently and absolutely adored it. Think Willy Wonka mashed up with Night at the Museum. I'm also excited that I get my wish for you to review a middle-grade novel. 🙂

These five fat-loss lies have been around for years and believing them could be making your fat-loss program a lot less effective. Time to blast them out of the water and get your fat-burning back on track!

Love, love, loved The Nightingale. I think it was one of the best books I read last year. Will add Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library to my list.
Elisabeth McKnight says
Oh I loved One Summer when I listened to it a few months ago – just added the other two to my holds 🙂

Mr Lemoncellos Library sounds interesting, and I've heard really good things about The Nightingale. Great pick!

I adore Bill Bryson – I've been torn between starting The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid and Mother Tongue. Maybe I should do One Summer instead! 🙂
The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid is my absolute favorite book! This book made me a fan. His ability to make non-fiction educational and humorous makes him an absolute pleasure to read.

I just read the nightingale for book club and oh my word!!!! I'm still having ALL THE FEELINGS for that book! I can't wait to read it again! (and I finished it this week!)
Listening to "The War that Saved My Life" (2016 Odyssey Winner) and reading "My Name is Lucy Barton." Can't decide which one I like more-both so good!
These all look great! I've never heard of the escape from the library one, I'll have to add it to my list. We're reading "The Nightingale" right now for book club. Wish we could discuss it together in person!
