My Reviews

 
Insightful, Romantic
Quick read.

Average response from our book club. Some really liked the book, others did not. I was right in the middle. We got great commentary from the discussion questions.

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
 
Dramatic, Insightful, Interesting
Good book. Emotional.

This authors writing style was different and I did need to go back to the beginning of the chapter to see who was "talking". However, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down.

Couldn't put it down.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a pleasurable and easy read. The footbinding stuck in my mind for weeks, though. Still not sure I'm over it.

Adventurous, Dramatic, Interesting
Enjoyed from beginning to end.

The author did a great job of describing what it was like to be ninety or ninety three. I really liked this book.

Moloka'i: A Novel by Alan Brennert
 
Informative, Inspiring, Interesting
Made me want to know more about Hawaiian history during this era.

The subject matter made this book a very emotional read. Sad at times but I found it hard to put the book down for very long. I liked this book.

Peony in Love by Lisa See
 
Informative, Insightful, Slow
A good book club choice for discussion.

I enjoyed this book for the most part, but it wasn't what I would call a "page turner". I had difficulty embracing the after life beliefs.

March: A Novel by Geraldine Brooks
 
Interesting, Informative, Dramatic
Good book. Our book club enjoyed this one.

The author did a great job bringing all the characters to life. I loved the characters Grace and March. I liked Marmee better through March's eyes.

 
Dramatic, Beautiful, Insightful
Good book that provides interesting insight to Africa

Our book group like this book, but just didn't understand why this family would chose to live in such an environment.

Falling Angels: A Novel by Tracy Chevalier
 
Dramatic, Interesting, Gloomy
Good read...

This was an enjoyable book even though the Lavinia character irritated me.

Finding Nouf: A Novel by Zoë Ferraris
 
Addictive, Dramatic, Insightful
Enjoyable and emotional

A lot going on this in this novel and it is interesting how it unfolds. I liked the contradiction - modernization vs. tradition, especially in Nayir - turns away from a woman's exposed face but owns a cell phone ?? I did struggle with the treatment of Muslim women.

The "haves" and the "have nots"

The book didn't come as any surprise to me. Hasn't this always been a problem? Greater minds than mine haven't had an answer. What is the solution?

The 19th Wife: A Novel by David Ebershoff
 
Informative, Interesting, Insightful
Confusing to read...

It was hard to keep the characters straight. I would rather read this as two separate books. I struggled with the subject matter. What people do in the name of religion!
