My Reviews

The Shack by William P. Young
Insightful, Inspiring, Life Changing

A little too "fantasy-land" for me.

Excellent book!

Loved this book.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Book Club Recommended
Romantic, Interesting, Beautiful
Keep reading!

This book was difficult to understand at first. Several of our club members actually gave up. But keep with it, once you dig into it, it becomes a beautiful, sad love story.

Sad but true

Hard to believe this is a true story. It became hard to follow because there were so many characters.

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

Yummy romance

Such a romance, but have some tissues ready at hand!

Knit Two by Kate Jacobs
Slow, Inspiring, Adventurous
Major disappointment!

Members of our club loved The Friday Night Knitting Club so much, we decided to read the sequel as a group. Yuck! No one in our club liked the book at all. Too much going on with too many characters, and way too long. Would not recommend to anyone!

blah blah blah

i wasn't impressed. it was boring and seemed like it didn't have a point.

just ok

this book was difficult to read because of all the foreign words. also, it was very long and reads like more of a factual informative book than the inspiring story it could be like.

good read

this book generated a good discussion with our book club because there are several controversial issues. we have a pretty diverse group and it was cool to hear different perspectives and learn interesting facts about members i thought i knew well!

Couldn't put it down

Several members of our club said they couldn't stop reading it. It is a great book, and we have already recommended it to many bookie friends!

a LONG read

this book is very long and difficult to follow. there are dozens of characters, and they all have swedish names. the story is good and interesting, but takes a long time to unravel because there are so many confusing details.

A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick

Dark, Dramatic, Interesting
Interesting plot

This book generated a good discussion at our meeting. There are a lot of plot twists and dark characters to keep it interesting.

fun book

this was a really fun book to read. it didn't generate much discussion, though, because everyone pretty much loved it and we didn't have much to "debate" about!

House Rules: A Novel by Jodi Picoult
Book Club Recommended
Insightful, Informative, Interesting
Jodi Picoult fans will love it

I have read many Jodi Picoult books, and I feel as though they all start to sound alike. Frankly, she drives me nuts! She is a great writer, but her plots are ridiculous. I don't want to give anything away, but if you've read her before, you know what I mean. If you're a fan of her, this is another book that will keep you reading. If you're not a fan, don't bother because it will remind you of every other book she's written.
