Jag har satt ihop en att-läsa lista med böcker som jag länge tänkt att läsa. Dessa böcker blir mitt sommarprojekt!

Jag älskade filmen som kom ut 1991 och har många gånger tänkt läsa boken men inte kommit mig för att göra det. Den stora skillnaden mellan boken och filmen verkar vara att det i filmen inte är uttalat att Ruth och Idgie är lesbiska. I boken är de dock öppna och hela staden vet om det.

baksidan av boken
She's one of America's fairest and funniest ladies. Actress and screenwriter, director and comedienne, Fannie Flagg is also a most accomplished and high-spirited author. Said Kirkus of her first book, Coming Attractions: "It's subtitled 'A wonderful novel' and that's exactly what it is." Here is her second. Get ready, because it's going to make you laugh (a lot), cry (a little), and care (forever).
What is it? It's first the story of two women in the 1980s: gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode tells her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women, of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend, Ruth, who, back in the 30s, ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama - a Southern kind of Café Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.
And as the past unfolds, the present, for Evelyn and for us, will never quite be the same.
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café is folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, with humor and drama, and with an ending that would fill with smiling tears the Whistle Stop Lake...if they only had a lake.

Report for murder

Val McDermid

Första boken i bokserien om Lindsay Gordon. Jag har inte läst något av Val McDermid och tänker att det är dags att ta steget ut i lesbiska thrillervärlden och mordmysterier.

baksidan av boken
The first novel in the Lindsay Gordon series - a gripping and thrilling page-turner, starring a self-proclaimed 'cynical socialist lesbian feminist journalist' - from the number one bestseller Val McDermid. Freelance journalist Lindsay Gordon is strapped for cash. Why else would she agree to cover a fund-raising gala at a girls' public school? But when the star attraction is found garrotted with her own cello string minutes before she is due on stage, Lindsay finds herself investigating a vicious murder. Who would have wanted Lorna Smith Cooper dead? Who had the key to the locked room in which her body was found? And who could have slipped out of the hall at just the right time to commit this calculated and cold-blooded crime?

baksidan av boken
Welcome to Junebug Farms, a successful, well-known animal shelter in upstate New York, where every day brings something new - love, stress, heartbreak, warmth - and not just from the animals.
Catherine Gardner knows what it means to work hard. Growing up with little, it's pretty much all she's done for most of her life. As the bookkeeper for Junebug Farms, she handles the money. When Catherine finds herself undeniably attracted to Emily Breckenridge, daughter of the shelter's largest donor, it doesn't sit well with her. At all.
Emily Breckenridge has spent her life in the shadows of both her family's money and her brother, Clark. But when the reins of the family's charity foundation are taken from Clark and handed to Emily, it's her chance to shine on her own. Everything about Catherine Gardner is unexpected, from her emotional reserve to the crazy magnetic pull she has...one Emily can't seem to fight.

Första boken i serien om Dr Kate Morrisson. Någon skapar levande bomber av oskyldiga människor och Kate måste hitta en väg att desarmera bomberna utan att skada någon. En thriller med action och romantik.

baksidan av boken
Dr. Kate Morrison doesn’t know how or why someone would create human bombs that are triggered by touch. But when Sergeant Andy Wyles blocks Kate from touching the patient who collapses in her Vancouver ER, Kate joins the investigation to demand answers, regardless of the danger.

As the two women work together to find those responsible for creating an army of human weapons, Kate finds it increasingly difficult to ignore her feelings for the fiercely protective and unrelentingly perceptive cop.

The investigation escalates, and Kate gradually begins to trust Andy, not only with her safety but also with the difficult details of her past. With lives at risk and her heart on the line, Kate must search for a way to defuse the bombs and save her patients, even as she questions the intensifying connection between herself and Andy.
