A Gentleman in Moscow

n 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is confined to the Metropol, a hotel where he has stayed voluntarily may times. Now, he is under house arrest and confined to an attic room. Though his world is now restricted to the hotel, Count Rostov finds many treasures in the hotel and among the guests. While his movements are restricted, his mind is not. A Gentleman in Moscow is a thoroughly delightful book and well worth the time spent reading it!.

Killers of the Flower Moon

David Grann has written a difficult book to read because of the terrible atrocities suffered by the Osage people in OK. Grann exposed the horror and the murder as one member of the Osage tribe was killed after another. The story is gripping and needed to be told.

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

Gale Honeyman's debut with Eleanor Oliphant Is completely Fine is a spot-on excellent read! Eleanor is functioning on her own; readers quickly become absorbed in her story and continue to find out what happens next. A truly good book!

Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover

Educated

Tara Westover provides us with a look into her father's controlling and ever-growing strange behavior as he "protects" his family from the government. He puts his children in harm's way by having them perform manual labor that would be dangerous for an adult male, much less a ten-year-old girl. Her story of survival is absorbing.

Read This Book!

The Girls at 17 Swann St is an informative tale about the horrors of eating disorders. It is written with compassion and insight. Readers quickly care about the girls at 17 Swann St and hope for their recovery. the story is not sweet and all ends well; it is a truthful story of the ups and downs of the eating disorders and the daily difficulties.
