Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful
Scary to imagine

As a mother, I had a hard time reading this book because of how scary and real the situation could be. I struggled through it because I could not imagine what I would do, not because of how the book was written. I made me so grateful for my family and their love.

Informative, Interesting, Fun
Surprised

I was surprised to like this book so much! It took me a while to get all who all the characters were, but I liked the variety of their personalities. It was a light read, which also surprised me because of some of the heavier content.

Loved it

 
Confusing, Pointless, Poorly Written
Scattered

I really wanted to love this book. There are so many things about a cubicle job that are humorous, that the author had endless options to write about - but didn't. I never got a plot out of the book. The characters were all fairly similar, so I often forgot who was who. Or maybe I just never connected with or liked any of the characters. The end of the book was downright annoying. The best way I can sum up the book was scattered. The only highlight is that the book was short.

I couldn't put it down

I was not expecting to like this book so much, but I could not put it down! I am excited to read the rest of the series and dig deeper into the story.

Too graphic for me

Honeymoon by James Patterson, Howard Roughan
 
Unconvincing, Boring
Terrible characters

The characters were so unlikeable that I could hardly tolerate reading this book.

I loved this book!

The book is beautifully written. I love a book that makes you take stock of the relationships in your life and vow to make them better.

Blah Characters

I didn't like the characters very much, but it was a good, quick read.

The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
 
Slow, Romantic, Boring
Light and a little slow

Not a typical read for me, but a light one for in between heavier books. Parts are slow but it was overall a good romantic book.

A good read

I am glad to have read this, but was a bit disappointed in the end. The book certainly opened my eyes to how recent these institutions existed. I had thought they were much more in the past.

Good, not a book I'd recommend

It was okay. I was frustrated at the main character for the entire book. If you want change in your life, just start the process already. It was hard to feel sympathy.

A good book, but not for much discussion

I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the first of the series. I was glad to read it, but I didn't find myself coming up with much of anything for a book club discussion.

Slow, but good

The book was a slow start and a long book for anyone that doesn\\\'t have much time on their hands between book club meetings. Once I was into the book I enjoyed it though. I love English history, especially during the Tudor period, so I was able to easily understand the background of the main story and how politics were influencing the story line.

The Kitchen House: A Novel by Kathleen Grissom
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful
Beautiful and Sad

I found this book hauntingly beautiful. Many parts were hard to read because how the characters treated each other, but I could not put this book down. You will need tissues.
