Defending Jacob: A Novel by William Landay
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful

This book was decent. A bit slow to get into, however, that could be because I was reading other books I wanted to read while I was reading this one. But, once you get into the plot you become addictive because you want to know what happens. I would not have picked this book up normally but because it was an "assigned book" it was definitely a good experience. Our book club had a really good conversation about it.

84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

Interesting, Fun, Informative
Decent Read and very neat

I thought this was a decent and fast read. It is a very small book and is told in letters. The only thing that can trip you up is not paying attention to the dates b/c I found my self a few times getting to a new letter and then half way through realized it was almost a year later. It was a very neat read in that we get a feel for what it was like during that period of time for people going through war rations and how they bought books as well (and how cheap haha).

Zero Day by David Baldacci

Interesting, Addictive, Fun
Addictive, action packed at times, on your toes, some light romance (very lite), and good dynamics

This was my first Baldacci book and it was a doozy. I did not want to read it at first but bam, it sucked me in. The military jargon can get a it overwhelming at times, but power through it and you will see that it was worth it. Its like a case of NCIS meets Blindspot in the fact that you are wondering at every turn how it is going to end up. The ending is holy moly! You never see it coming. My club did find out that there are two other books after this so we are all wanting to read more!

Thought Provoking

This book takes you down the path of addiction and what people battle. More importantly it talks about an addiction that has an ingredient that you can never stop: Food. The author allows you to see the inner dialogue that one goes through when trying to make their mind and body work as one and not against them. I do believe that this is the type of book that one should read in their lifetime to understand a certain pov and while you might not be able to relate, you can gain knowledge and act/think accordingly in the future.
