Managing life after a breast cancer diagnosis, including rediscovering intimacy, coping with fear of recurrence, reconnecting relationships, sharing hobbies and interests, and finding inspiration in daily life.

I've been receiving marvelous book suggestions on another thread and it was recommended that I start a Book Lovers thread. This is not for BC or health books -- this is pure escapism!!! I've collated the suggestions (with snippets describing the plots) I've received thus far. Please post your recommendations too!!

JaBoo You are right, this thread is all about escapism!! there is a bc book thread under recommend your resources community.breastcancer.org/for... but in addition to the book thread, it looks like there are other threads about specific books.

The Book Lovers Club does seem to discuss more fiction than non-fiction, but please don't discount our loyal readers who weigh in with their non-fiction recommends. When Konkat started this thread, she specifically set out parameters that we would not discuss cancer & health. So it's a place you can come to see what your friends are reading and yes, put aside the cancer discussions & worries for a bit. All during treatment this remained one of my favorites. Now some years post treatment, I wouldn't stop checking this thread for anything.

jaBoo....why not start another thread asking for breast cancer book recommendations? I am sure you can fine tune the kind of books you are looking for. Just like why someone might ask for recipe books. If you are a vegan, you probably aren’t interested in paleo cook books. Perhaps if you are more specific, you might get some recommendation gems
