Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Dramatic, Insightful
Powerful, Emotional Read

 
Boring, Inspiring, Slow
Great Topic, Poorly Executed

Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie
 
Book Club Recommended
Fun, Dramatic, Interesting
Good Spooky "Romance"

Very easy, fun read. I haven't read a book with ghosts in it since I was little, so it was enjoyable. The romance side was a little drawn out.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
 
Book Club Recommended
Romantic, Dramatic, Beautiful
excellent

Classic lit is always a hit! Jane E. is a page turner even though it is over 500 pages. There is love, humility, anger, poverty, determination, mystery, acceptence, all in this brillant novel. Charolette Bronte wrote a very good book with perfect reflections of human emotions...even though she did so over 150 years ago.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
 
Book Club Recommended
Slow, Brilliant, Insightful
one of my favorites

Atlass Shrugged is long but it hold your attention very, very well. The characters seemed so real as you read, like they could be sitting with you. A must read.

Lolita (Vintage International) by Vladimir Nabokov
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Graphic, Dark
Not my usual...

I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. The author writes in a fashion that is addictive. The story is very odd, but very griping.

Couldn't Put It Down

Very good, easy read. A real page turner. I couldn't put it down because I wanted to know what happens next in the games...

History

I enjoyed learning about a special time & place in history through the eyes of a true Hawaiian. The book had it all, love, anger, death, birth, honor, & peace.

Saving CeeCee was a good light read. It had the potential to go deep, but the author kept it happy.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This book is now one of my favorites!

As I read this book, I could feel my heart "smile" with all the hidden messages & life lessons intertwined in the text. It is a beautiful story/fable that is timeless. A perfect read in my opinion.

The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Confusing, Graphic
My first sci fi book!

Since I am trying to expand my reading interests, I chose this book due to its awards; named one of the best novels of the year by Time Magazine, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Locus, and winner of the Nebula and Hugo Awards for Best Novel, The Windup Girl for me was very appealing due to its futuristic dystopia plot. I may have to try other sci fi books!

Not my usual but I really liked it

I am glad our book club is choosing different genres of books. This bio was AWESOME. I learned a lot about humanity & the struggle for perseverance. Highly recommend this book for those looking to learn about the dark side of WWII

The Night Circus is wonderfully written

A fun and heart warming book full of magic, love, wonder, & dreams. The plot & character development kept me entertained. It reminded me of Twilight & Harry Potter combined.
