My Reviews

 
Book Club Recommended
Romantic, Informative, Beautiful
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Everyone in our book club really liked the book. Some even said they loved it. We enjoyed learning about the racial and cultural differences that existed in a neighborhood in Seattle during WWII, and how those difference affected the characters. We also enjoyed the sweet love story that kept us turning the pages.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Dramatic, Interesting
We loved it!

I think this was one of the best discussions we've had in book club. Cutting for Stone is such a rich, expansive novel, that we continually came up with new ideas to discuss. One of our members suggested that Verghese was an expert at preparing his readers for an event with actions and descriptions that lead up to the event. That's just one of the many points we discussed, but we all recommend the book for other book clubs.

 
Poorly Written, Unconvincing, Boring
Do not recommend.

The Seven Sisters by Margaret Drabble
 
Boring, Slow, Pointless
Not a good one for discussion.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova
 
Book Club Recommended
Insightful, Informative, Interesting
Sad, But Enjoyable

I didn't know what to expect when I began reading, but Genova does an excellent job in allowing the reader to get to know Alice. I loved her and her family by the end of the story. I highly recommend this book, especially for book clubs, because readers will want to discuss this story after you've read it.
