So glad this was recommended to me.

The Red Book by Deborah Copaken Kogan
Pointless, Boring, Poorly Written
Not Worth the Time

This book was not liked by our book club. We decided to read it because it was seemed short. ( A good thing at Christmas time). However, although it was short most people didn't finish it. It was not worth the time.

Heft: A Novel by Liz Moore
Book Club Recommended
Insightful, Confusing, Addictive
Touching, Optimistic

I liked this book and I would have rated this book 4 stars or higher, but can’t justify it due to the ending and the ampersands. I do think it is a worthwhile read, but be prepared for disappointing ending.

I liked this book very much--until the ending. Very disappointing ending. And I found the use of ampersands to be extremely distracting.

Overall, I liked the book. It was unique and an enjoyable read.

Good Discussion

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet turned into one of our best discussion. A lot of historical information and what would you do type of questions. Plus good discussions on family dynamics.

The Language of Flowers

This book was so much better than I expected. It was this month's selection and I was dreading, but it proved worth the time. It's different, not what expected.

Little Bee

This book is brutal graphic in some parts. Sensitive readers beware. Overall, we liked the book and it gave fodder for a great discussion. Especially interesting was discussing the interview with Chris Cleave about writing the book.

Slow, Confusing, Pointless
