Loved this book!

I actually recommended this book to our book club. It so well written and full of humor, history and very well developed characters. The author\\\'s imagination is boundless and for a first book I think it\\\'s brilliant!

The Interestings

One thing this book was NOT is interesting. None of the characters was engaging, and I really didn't care what happened to any of them. The author started out with a good premise, but never really developed it.

The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel

First my rating would be 4.5 stars, but it doesn\'tgive me that option. Now that that\'s cleared upo! Definitely added this to my list of favorite books. It hooked me right away, and I could not put it down! I do love a good mystery. I felt it was very well written.

I did find myself somewhat sidetracked wondering in what year the book is actually set. Apparantly the author intentionally left that out, but I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve decided based on clues in the book that it was probably early 60\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s. BUT, my curiosity did nothing to diminish my love of this book.

It was our club\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s first pick of 2015 and I think we are off to a good start.

Me Before You

I loved this book! It was a beautifully written, thought provoking journey about a very difficult and controversial topic. The characters were well crafted and I felt like I was going through this right alongside them. I didn\\\\\\\'t want their story to end.

Nice read

The book was an easy, somewhat lighter read, however, it was way too predictable for my taste.
