My Reviews

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Dark
I didn't see it coming!

I love books that have a twist that I didn't even see coming. This book rides the fine line of supernatural and classic. Our discussion went on and one with this one!

Interesting, Beautiful, Fun
I love you John Irving

I read this book for the second time after 10 years and loved it even more. The World According to Garp is so good that you really start to believe that T.S. Garp is real.

Still Missing: A Novel by Chevy Stevens
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Dark, Graphic
Worst Nightmare

This book takes every woman's nightmare of being kidnapped and turns it into a believable and haunting story.

Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful
Room - A great book club pick!

This book inspired one of our longest book discussions to date.

Juliet by Anne Fortier
Book Club Recommended
Romantic, Adventurous, Dramatic
A well done love story

I loved this book. Some in our book club found it cheesy but I thought it was a beautiful love story with an interesting twist on the classic tale. It really makes you want to visit Siena immediately!

Adventurous, Interesting, Informative
How do people like this book?!?

I had high hopes for this book as I love historical fiction and "What If?" type of plots. It was terrible. May Dodd is not at all likeable and I hate what a hero the book makes her out to be. Each character is a sterotype and completely fake. Don't read this book.

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Book Club Recommended
Slow, Boring, Gloomy
A great book to read after traveling to Europe

Ernest Hemingway does a great job at capturing European life. Love.

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
Book Club Recommended
Inspiring, Insightful, Optimistic
Pretty Good, not Great

I liked the Last Lecture and about half of Randy's lessons but did find some of the book to be preachy. I think it would bring about a lot of discussion in a book club though.

Fairest (rpkg) by Gail Carson Levine
Unconvincing, Slow, Poorly Written
Couldn't get through it

The Brethren by John Grisham
Book Club Recommended
Persuasive, Interesting, Insightful
Loved the plot, had an ok ending

Night Road: A Novel by Kristin Hannah
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Insightful, Interesting

While I HATED Jude in this book, I loved the rest of the characters and found the book extremely moving. Great book club choice!
