The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
 
Gloomy, Slow, Romantic
The Age of Innocence

This book would be great for someone who likes classics to read on their own, but not fit for a bookclub discussion. Unless, that is what that bookclub enjoys reading.

BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP

This book was easy to read from the first page to the last page. Some parts were repetitive, but it worked with the story.

THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD

This book was very discriptive, but was hard to get into and read because of the dialect.

True Believer by Nicholas Sparks
 
Romantic, Poorly Written, Boring
TRUE BELIEVER

This book was flat. I was waiting for something big to happen and was let down. To much hype and not enough story.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
 
Interesting, Slow, Dark
NEVER LET ME GO

This book was okay. It was odd and different, but I wouldn't read it again.

Brooklyn by Colm Toibin

BROOKLYN

This story was odd, but descriptive.

The Color of Heaven

This book was a great read! Once you pick it up you will not want to put it down. You know what is going to happen, but you are happy when your guess is correct.

Shine

This book is addicitive from the moment you open the book. It is a hate crime story or is it?

The Story of Beautiful Girl

I love the way this story is set-up. It has a beautiful ending that gives a story book ending.

Heaven isfor Real

It is a sweet story, but I think it is written in a way that made me think that it was written to convince people instead of inspire them.

Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen

Romantic, Dramatic, Beautiful
The Apothecary'sDaughter

This is a great period book if you like Jane Austin books. You can tell it is a new book (not from that time), but she does a great job.

Sister: A Novel by Rosamund Lupton
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Slow, Interesting
Sister

I liked that it was different and I had no idea that it was going to end the way it did. It will probably tick a lot of people off.

Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

I think it is important for the reader to remember that this is just one person's view about parenting. I like the way the story is told, but I do not agree with all of the generalizations.

Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool

Moon Over Manifest

This story is a little slow at the start but once it picks up you do not want to put it down. I love the way the story comes together at the end.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay

Sarah's Key

I like the way the two stories are told and come together at the end.

Talk Me Down by Victoria Dahl
 
Fun
Talk Me Down

This is a fun read that had me laughing out loud a few times.

 
Fun, Pointless, Interesting
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

I was expecting to laugh along with this book, but it only got a chukle out of me once or twice.

The Poet by Michael Connelly

Dark, Adventurous, Graphic
The Poet

This book was a little creepy at times. I like the lines of poetry that was added to the crime scenes, it added to the story.

Intensity by Dean R. Koontz
 
Intensity

As I was reading this book, I kept waiting for a twist. The title is really the only thing intense about this book.

Mystic River by Dennis Lehane
 
Book Club Recommended
Mystic River

I enjoyed the story and the way it was set up. You feel a connection with the characters.
