The ‘J’ books… #A-Z books 📚

This is an adaptation of something I saw on Twitter – people were posting 26 books in 26 days, each title beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. Don’t worry – I’m planning on taking around 26 months to get to Z. Each month I’ll post a newish book I’ve enjoyed, plus a children’s book and an older book.

Today, it’s the ‘J’ books:

I’m a huge fan of Elly Griffith’s Dr. Ruth Galloway books. The Janus Stone is the second in the series, and it’s a good one. Two children went missing forty years ago… and now, bones are discovered when an old house is demolished. And someone is trying to frighten forensic archeologist Ruth…

Jo’s Boys is the fourth and last in Louisa Alcott’s ‘Little Women’ series. I went to see the new film recently, and dived straight into the books when I came home. Jo’s Boys is more about the boys than Jo, but we still see what’s been happening to the March family over the years. A nostalgic read.

What else could the ‘older book’ be? Jane Eyre needs no introduction. I visited the Brontë Parsonage the last time I was in England – it gave me goosebumps, standing in the room where Charlotte Brontë had penned Jane Eyre, and hearing how ‘To Walk Invisible’, the film about the Brontë siblings,  was made.

Coming next month: the ‘K’ books. This could be a challenge…

    I just love this series! You always point me to something new, but also to warm memories of book loves such as Jo’s Boys. Thanks a bazillion.
