Read All About It!!!
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro - There’s nothing easy about reading Never Let Me Go, because it has an honesty that will make you question so many things. Like the social alienation of specific groups of people, and the painful fact that love can be lost or missed, all because of timing. It’s beautiful, haunting, and complex. Did I also mention it’s science fiction? Yeah, go read this.
Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness: Susannah Cahalan
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Twisted, haunting, and addictive. Good for anyone interested in crime or psychology. @Sam McHardy McHardy Cummins
I read Shakespeare for a book report last year. We could choose our own books, as long as they were our level. Some people read Hunger Games, Harry Potter or the Maze Runner and stuff. Nope. The Taming of the Shrew for me. Nobody knew what that was, and I'm sure everybody was silently judging me. (It was really really good though!!!!) ~SS

So glad that my dad made me read this when I was little...turned out to be a favorite. Have re-read it as an adult many times. : )
When this book first came out, I knew I wanted to read it but I had no idea what to expect, so it eluded my list for the longest time. When I finally got around to picking it up, I couldn't put it down. Tina Fey weaves her story through a mixture of her humor and her life lessons that makes this novel a must-read. #books $12.99
one of the funniest women writers...
by Elizabeth Brundage ~ This was her debut novel and I had a good feeling about it when I started it. For some reason I always love an author's debut!! And a good feeling it was!! This was a great book! A definite page turner and I can't wait to read more by Elizabeth Brundage! The main topic centered around abortion and the actions of both sides... Pro-life and Pro-choice. It is amazing to me the lenghts that the pro-lifers will go to to try to get their points across. I know this stuff goes on, but to this degree?... I am sure it does, but it is so very scary! People are crazy!!! Read the book, you'll see what I mean.(
