Art of Racing in the Rain

Such a absolutely sweet book. If you are a dog lover, be sure to get the kleenex box ready. Many references to car racing, and I thought at first that would be a turn off, but the way the author infused it into the book not only makes sense and flows smoothly but you can view the racing dialogue with life comparison.
Great story about a family and life, just through a four-legged view point.

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

Though it was a bit slow at the start, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie definitely was an enjoyable book. The character of Flavia is a fun, and interesting girl that really is much older than her 11yrs.

Bitter is the New Black

This book was fun and light. I did like the change in her life perspective, but still staying true to her Prada self.

The Red Thread

This book was very interesting. The reader learns a lot about Chinese culture and the adoption process. The story is personal to the author, and that is nice, however, our book club felt that the story was rushed a bit. But we all enjoyed it nonetheless.

The book was different than many books we recently read, so it was a nice breath of fresh air! I rated it as fun because one of the main characters was suck a ass that he was hilarious.

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

This book was interesting...many of us in the group were a bit turned-off by the title...meaning we thought it would be a boring book about the trail; however, the author is a very good writer and makes it quite interesting and in many times comical.
Though the review says "laugh out loud funny", I would not quite take it that far.

Tinkers by Paul Harding

Beautiful, Slow, Difficult

Mixed reviews here. I loved the prose of the book. Amazing writing. But I think this book is for more literature lovers versus just readers. I don't think it is a bad book and I did enjoy it, most of the group had a hard time with the language of the book.

Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful

This book was sort of a split in our group. Some had a hard time reading the book that is narrated by a five year old. It can be a little challenging, but I thought it was wonderfully written. A dark story, but you don't necessarily see that because it is through the eyes of the little boy, who see's his life as just fine. Recommend it!

Everyone in the club enjoyed this book. It was well written and very easy and quick to read. It was however, a bit predictable. Just a nice book.

A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table

We all really loved this book!! What a fabulous book that combined recipes with life stories. It wasn't just about the actual food, it was about how the food intertwines us in every day life. Fills us with memories, good, bad, just forever.
Highly recommend it!
