I’m celebrating National Siblings Day with a post about sisters! I love reading books about complicated family drama and I especially love stories featuring sisters!

             By My Side

I have two Siblings….two treasured Sisters. In the picture below, I’m standing and my two sisters are seated on either side of our mom. This pictures was taken in the “before” times. You see, my sister Jollene (seated on the left) is now in Heaven. Dearly loved and gone too soon.

~Rainer Maria Rilke

“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

  1. I love the photo of you with your sisters and mother!

    As it happens, I borrowed the audiobook version of The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters this morning. I plan to start listening to it tonight.

    Last month, I read The Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan that also includes two sisters. Other notable books with sisters are The Lager Queen of Minnesota by J. Ryan Stradal and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini.

    • Enjoy Shergill Sisters!
      Oh I forgot about the sisters in Lager Queen and Splendid Suns. Thanks for the reminder! So many great stories!

  2. I have enjoyed several other books on sisters. Especially
    – nonfiction: The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra
    by Helen Rappaport
    – mystery/thriller: The Missing Sister, by Elle Marr ; Second Sister, by Chan Ho-Kei
    – historical fiction: The Mistresses of Versailles Trilogy, by Sally Christie

  3. I’ve always wanted a sister! I do have one but she’s almost 18 years younger than me (half sis) so not quite what I expected! But I still love sister stories.

  4. Read the 2nd two on your recommendation–thanks!! Just finishing a book I’ve really loved– Good Apple, about an evangelical southern girl who marries and lives in NYC. Memoire that is funny and fascinating.

    • I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the reads! Thanks for your rec…I’ll check it out. Funny and fascinating sounds perfect!
