Connect 5 Friday – Debut Novels


It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.

With the arrival of spring, and the reality of CoVid19 requiring us to shelter in place (to flatten the curve for sure, but also my hubby has a compromised immune system and i can’t chance him getting sicker than he is), I decided I needed to focus on reading the huge TBR books on my shelves. Our libraries are closed so this is a good time to do just that.

So here are 5 Debut novels I want to read, on my TBR shelves

  1. Hmm debut novels are always a risk but of course most of these authors went on to make their names. I have read a Man Called Ove and did like it. I always felt Amy Tan would be too challenging for me but if you do read it you can let me know what you think. Take care. We have now been told if you are over 70 stay home – I am just! I’ll need to do grocery shopping but that will be it. Like yourself I guess you need to go and do that too.

    • It is only going to get worse – even tho we have been told from our PM to social distance. I have to get meds and probably some groceries next week. But I did buy enough for a few weeks.
      Take care!

    • Thanks Linda. So agree. And it is stressful times. My youngest and his 2 daughters dropped by yesterday and I had to talk from a distance. Wouldn’t even let them in. Bill is coming down with another cold – so have to be extra cautious. Take care yourself.
