Castle Leoch inspiration
The Glass Castle is a memoir recalling Jeannette Walls' transient youth and her bohemian parents. Together her family traipsed across the Southwest, settling temporarily in desert towns and mountain campsites. But when the money ran out and the romance of the wandering life faded, the family settled into a sedentary life in West Virginia, which was soon darkened by alcoholism and dysfunction. Walls eventually left this life, but she looks back on it with honesty and compassion.

City of Thieves by David Benioff. Good book! Read book review at http://readinginthegarden.blogspot.com/2013/01/city-of-thieves-by-david-benioff.html
City of Thieves by David Benioff. Great book about coming of age during the siege of St. Petersburg in Russia.

I agree. edgy, heart-breaking, and as funny as the siege of Leningrad could possibly be. It combine a lot of appealing genres: Historical fiction. Buddy story. Coming of age novel. Screenplay in the making. But mostly, it's just a really, really good story ... about two teenage boys-- one Jewish, one "Cossack" -- who embark on an impossible mission in Leningrad during WWII. This is still one of my favorite books!

The Color Purple by Alice Walker Probably my favorite book of all time
Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate, and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister," a brutal man who terrorizes her.

The Outlander Series is one of my favorites. Also worth reading: the Lord John Grey series, a spinoff based around a "minor" (if any of Gabaldon's characters could be said to be minor) character in the Outlander series.

Staggeringly beautiful, deep, rich, sad, frightening, and at times infuriating. I appreciate Hosseini's portrayal of a part of the world that is under so much scrutiny lately. He uses this novel to tell the story of Afghani women and the hardships that face them with each regime change. Read this book. You won't regret it.
even better than the kite runner.

Book Club Pick. (Date?) A Thousand Splendid Suns: Khaled Hosseini.
One of my favorite books ever! A Thousand Splendid Suns and the Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini - moving stories of family friendship love faith and Afghan history
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. (Nov 2014) Poor Laila who had such an amazing father and supportive family structure who was forced into such a life of misery due to the Taliban. I'm glad she had a happy ending. Mariam though, what a horrible thing to endure. The rules the Taliban enforced were crazy. The abuse that both Mariam and Laila took from Rasheed was sickening. What an eye opening book, I now want to read the Kite Runner which I've heard so much about.
