INGRID’S FAVOURITE THINGS: Some tips to help you read books, live longer



Read books, live longer.

I am not making this up or trying to find an excuse to hibernate. A recent study found that adults who read 3 1/2 hours a week were almost 25 per cent more likely to outlive non readers, adding about two to three years to your lives.

So to help you live longer here are a few of my picks.

My co-host Mark Philbin and I are obsessed with Linwood Barclay. (ok Mark more than me because he tweets to Mr. Barclay constantly about his recent book)

You can get lost in his recent series of books.

Pick up "Broken Promise", "Far From True" and his new book "The Twenty Three".

You read one and you can't wait to get into the next thriller. It will leave you wondering who is behind it all and who is still left in this town!

 

***

Fans of the book (or movie) "Room" will love the latest book from Emma Donoghue. "The Wonder" is set in a village in Ireland in the 1850's.

Tourists are flocking to see a little girl who could be a miracle. She never eats. An English nurse is hired to watch over the girl and confirm the miracle or debunk this as a scam.

 

***

Way before Matthew McConaughey played "The Lincoln Lawyer" I was a huge fan of Michael Connelly and his books. I actually love Connelly's series on Harry Bosch way more than his books on Mickey Haller aka The Lincoln Lawyer.

In his latest book "The Wrong Side Of Goodbye" we see Bosch retired from the LAPD and turned private eye. Be prepared to lose track of time when you pick up this book.

 

***

If you loved "Gone Girl" and were caught up by "Girl On A Train" this book may be your next favorite. "The Couple Next Door" by Shari Lapena.

It is about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors. It’s twisty, dark and you don't know who is lying and who to believe.  Called "a ride of lies, betrayal and the secrets between husbands and wives."

Enjoy!
