Curl up on the Couch on a Raining Day

The Peach Keeper was simply a fun book to read with a few interesting questions raised about growing up and the evolution of friendship.

Insight into the pain of history

The Help made the suffering of segregation real and brought to light how evil and cruel humans can be.

Unconvincing, Slow, Dark
Creepy

The beginning of the novel was difficult to get into, but once I got into the meat of the story I couldn't put it down.

ONE STEAMY READ!!!!!

The Guenevere trilogy is my favorite version of the King Arthur mythology. Adventure, mystery, romance and steamy love scenes. You will not be able to put these books down!!!

A beautiful and engaging novel!

CeeCee is trapped in life that she doesn't deserve: her mother is mentally ill and her father is MIA, unwilling to deal with the mess his wife has become. CeeCee is forced to raise herself and keep her mother hidden from the taunts of 60's era Ohio. Everything changes the summer of CeeCee's sixth grade year and CeeCee is saved by someone she had no clue existed.

Time Travel to your Youth

The Summer I Turned Pretty yanked me out of my adult life and plopped me back to my lazy high school summers of sun, pool, beach, and fun. Once you finish the first book, you will have to read the second and third installments of the series as well. I read all three books in less than four days.

The Murderer's Daughters by Randy Susan Meyers
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful
A look at the unexpected victims of violence

As a society we typically overlook the children of convicted criminals and the challenges they face trying to cope without a stable family and with the stigma of having a murderer as a parent. The Murderer's Daughter is a deeply emotional novel that could easily be translated to the big screen.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Dramatic, Insightful
Though Provoking Novel

If your book club actually enjoys discussing novels, Sarah's Key should be your next selection.

Corked: A Memoir by Kathryn Borel
 
Book Club Recommended
Fun, Inspiring, Dramatic
A funny and dark exploration of the father/daughter relationship

If you are a wine lover or know a wine lover then you will understand this father/daughter journey through the French Wine Country. The father is obsessed with wine and the daughter never "caught the bug." Now in her thirties, she feels she will never truly know her father unless she can understand what he loves. The author writes with absolute honesty, putting to paper the uncomfortable jokes one makes in intimate relationships, the dark thoughts that torment, and the desire to change everything about the people you love the most.

Not even close to Water for Elephants, COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

The Night Circus is as mysterious and imaginative as the cover art suggests. The book should translate well to theaters and quickly become a "must-read" which means that it will become nearly impossible to obtain a copy from the libray in a year or so. Get ahead of the bandwagon Bookworms! Morgenstern is able to create sympathetic characters and create an imaginary world that feels almost tangible. Even if you hate the circus, you will love The Night Circus!

A True "Who Dunnit?"

Agatha Christie is absolutely wonderful. I grew up watching Poirot on ETV and took a chance when I discovered that all of her novels are FREE for ereaders. The dialogue was witty, the characters were three dimensional, and Ms. Christie kept me guessing until the end. Oddly enough, when I went to visit my grandmother I discovered that we were reading the book at the same time!!! Fun for all ages!
