Books Worth Reading

.. if you like the kinds of books I do! These are my 4 star reads. Some close to 5. My criteria are not very sophisticated... great characters, unique plot and well written. I must admit I tend towards books about women -- just because they interest me more and I connect better.

Books Worth Reading

  • 57 Pins

She's Come Undone -- classic Wally Lamb.

Benediction -- my introduction to books by this author. I went on to read several more.

The Girls -- surprisingly good.

It's good... but not as good as some of her other books. Or maybe that it is not different enough than her other books. Mothers and daughters and terrible fates...

Well I most certainly would not be at a football game without a book to read.

    Lol.... I bring books to Disney World!!

The Sheep Queen: A Novel: Thomas Savage: 9780316610902: Books



Keep Calm & Read a Book!

This was my first Lionel Shriver read and she hooked me. A story about siblings -- their loyalty to each other, how quickly, they will betray each other-- determined by how they viewed and adapted to the challenges of finding their place in their parents hearts and lives.

Super ending... although some people hated it, I loved it. A fascinating story based on weight and the extent to which it -- and therefore food -- controls us.

Author Lionel Shriver -- Just finished two books by her and liked both. She has a unique style.

Good place to discover books worth checking out.

The Homecoming of Samuel Lake -- biggest strength is interesting and likable /dislikable/detestable characters.

I used the 7 Habits book for several years to help me overcome some difficult situations. When I found this one, I tried to add these agreements.

I need to read this.

All true.

When my son had difficulty going to sleep at night I ended up reading so many of these to him over the years.

The Sandcastle Girls: A Novel -- I admit I haven't finished it yet, but I can recommend it. It is an unlikely love story, set against the background of the Armenian genocide --about which I knew nothing. The story skips around a lot, which I think detracts from it somewhat; still it is compelling.

A childhood ruined, an adulthood salvaged. A good story. A little irritating at times, but on the whole, I'm going with 4 stars.
