My Reviews

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
 
Dramatic, Interesting, Dark
Definitely not a favorite with our group

Our group agreed that this story could have been better. We even thought of a more interesting ending. In the end, the mystery was a bore.

The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
 
Interesting, Inspiring, Dramatic
A poignant story of a family without roots and children with courage and character to survive

This story could have almost been unbelievable if not for the similarities to a college friend's family. Although much of the story was frustrating to read, I couldn't put the book down.

Middlesex: A Novel by Jeffrey Eugenides
 
Interesting, Dramatic, Epic
Our book club gave it a "thumbs up"

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
 
Informative, Dramatic, Insightful
Wonderfully written

This story is as good as The Kite Runner. I loved it

 
Epic, Dramatic, Adventurous
Long, but worth the time.

Loving Frank: A Novel by Nancy Horan
 
Informative, Interesting, Dramatic
Great discussion book!

I thoroughly enjoyed both reading and discussing this book. We decided that there were two stories here; a love story and a story about the women's movement. I recommend it to other groups.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows
 
Informative, Fun, Interesting
Enjoyable, didn't want it to end.

This book made me laugh and cry. So well written that I could hear their voices in each letter. Loved it!

 
Book Club Recommended
The Kennedy Women

We chose this book upon recommendation from another book club following Ted Kennedy's death. Initially, I wasn't sure if I was going to learn anything new about the Kennedy family, but I was wrong. I found that I couldn't put the book down because I wanted to read about America's "royal family". Surprisingly, I loved the book and so did most of our club.
