America's First Daughter: A Novel by Stephanie Dray, Laura Kamoie
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Interesting, Insightful
America's First Daughter

Overall, our club members liked it, but some found it boring and somewhat incestuous with Patsy adoration of her father. Yes it was a different era, but her love was overkill and her father's possessive. Interesting facts about Jefferson, though.

Only 1 person in our club really liked it and 3 will go on to read the others in the series because the last chapter has them asking, "how that happen". However, most of us didn't even finish the book. Many described it as dark and conflicting. Also, as a club, we are not sure why this book is getting such accolades.

Our group loved this book! Perhaps it's our love of books but it really appealed to us. Easy reading, fun and makes you feel that your dreams are attainable.

Our club enjoyed this book, even those who don't like romance nor paranormal thought it was a fun book to read. Some were surprised it had a plot. Many will read more of her books in the future.

Cute book. Realistic themes.

The Circle by Dave Eggers

I found it predictable from beginning to end. It was described as a "techno thriller", but where is the suspense when you know what will happen next.

Into the Wilderness

I liked it, but the author could have cut out 200-300 pages and the book would have still been good. It got a little ridiculous that as soon as the heroes got through one obstacle, immediately they fell into another one, never from their own mistakes. With all the hype about it being like Diana Gabaldon's series (minus time travel), I expected a better story than what it was. However, it was enjoyable, though maybe not as historically accurate as I had hoped, and I do plan on reading the next book....jury is out on the rest of the series.

I was engaged with the story within the first few pages. Some nights, I stayed up way to late reading it. Being set in 1990's, when we didn't have the Internet we do now and there were no cell phones made the story more dramatic and intense.

The Silent Wife: A Novel by A. S. A. Harrison
 
Dark, Interesting, Dramatic
Silent Wife

Kept waiting for something to happen but nothing did. Irritated with heroine...she should have been more on top of what was happening and handled better since she was a psychologist! No one in our club liked this book.
