Wednesday’s Word = FAMILY

Most readers will acknowledge that some words reappear time and time again in titles. Often these words are associated with a particular genre. Case in point: “The girl on the train” and “Gone girl” spawned countless thriller titles with the word ‘girl’ in the title.

I know there are hundreds of books with the word ‘FAMILY’ in the title, but I’m featuring a selection of 43 titles that appeal to me personally, as a way of sharing my book love.

As you view this post, I expect you are at home with your own family until this dreadful pandemic has run its course.

Just click on the cover to read the book’s synopsis from Goodreads.
You might just find your next favorite book!

Are you tempted by any of these covers?

So many fabulous ones here. Which cover MOST APPEALS to YOU?
Have you read one of these titles and absolutely LOVED it?

    I have read a few of these and have several others already on my TBR. I was actually quite surprised to see how many I recognized, more than any other posts in this series. Having said that, I am still looking to add a couple more (The Family by Louise Jensen, Family Tree by Susan Wiggs). Always look forward to this series, Lynne.

    When we are with out families we should warm and safe. Yet, looking through the above collection, I find that they are stories that are dark, mysterious and secretive. i expect that is the key attraction for many readers. Then again some real families are just as secretive and strange.
    (PS my e-book is free this week).


  3. The Durrell book interests me. I’ve read several of his brothers novels.


  4. Love this idea! I’ll have to add some of these on to my list
