Someone Knows my Name

Astounding that this book has not recieved more attention! It is a beautiful read about an ugly topic. You go on a journey with this book and will never forget it.

Perfect Peace

Wow, this was written so well that I just kept having to remind myself it was fiction. So many topics to discuss family dynamics, gays, education, religion and on and on. This would make for a very interesting book club discussion!

Crow Lake

Our group loved this book. We could all see the characters and where they lived so vividly. We all enjoyed discussing this family and all they went through.

Hotel on the corner of bitter and sweet

A bit slow at times but very sweet and romantic.

My Antonia

While some parts where beautifully written, I found it too slow. And it left me wanting more of a plot and story line to bring it all together. I guess if you have a love for the prairie, than you will love this book.

Waiting for Snow in Havana

This book is so well written. From the very beginning you can almost see the sun, smell the air and you definately feel when the author is angry or happy. Our book club loved it. I personally learned so much about Cuba and it's people. I both laughed and cried while reading this book. I highly recommend it!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Super sexy, racy book! Fun to read even though it is pretty straight forward and simple. This should come with a bit of a warning * get your hubby/self ; ) ready for some fun times* !

The Interestings

This book should not be on this list! It was anything but interesting. It's about rich bratty kids who grew up to be rich bratty problematic adults. Go figure.

An American Marriage

I feel Ike this is another PC book selected by an out of touch celebrity trying to push some agenda.
There is a lot of back and forth with letter writing and very shallow character development, leaving me and our book club frustrated at the missed opportunity for writing something with a real message and some depth. Oh well Oprah recommended it so ???? thousands will read it and say “it must be good, even though I didn’t like it.”
