The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Setterfield
 
Dramatic, Interesting, Dark
Solve the mystery of the bones in the library, the girl in the mist, the unusual twins...

Who is the girl in the mist? What is the thirteenth tale? Whose bones are buried in the library? What is the true story of Vida Winter? Margaret sets out to learn her story, but the truth is not revealed until the end of the tale.

This was a page-turner for several members of our group. It reads like a nineteenth century novel, and there are references to Jane Eyre throughout the book. A very good read, especially on a rainy day.

 
First person accounts of World War II

Views were varied from thoroughly enjoyable to not very interesting. Many members who lived during World War II found the book more enjoyable, while younger members expressed the opinion that the book lacks relevance in a post-2001 era. Some readers found the author's tone preachy. A good source of first person accounts from that time in history.

Marley & Me by John Grogan
 
Fun, Adventurous, Inspiring
A humorous memoir of life with a special dog

We all enjoyed this book. It's written in an easy to read, conversational style. The charaacters are lovable and come to life well in the story, and the author is a great storyteller. An all around good read.
