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.

She's Come Undone Author: Wally Lamb As endearingly familiar as Chiquita Banana jingles, Hula-Hoops and I Love Lucy, as mysterious and haunting as the cries of whales, She's Come Undone makes us laugh and wince with recognition and reminds us that despite the pain we endure and cause, we must find the courage to love again.

The girls : a novel / Lori Lansens. Just joined a new book club, and this is our first book. It's about conjoined twins, and narration alternates between the two girls.
The saga of half-Chinese, half-American Violet Minturn, who grows up in her mother's brothel in turn of the 19th century Shanghai, and hopes to avoid the same destiny. One of the amazements, frankly, is the explicit yet sensitive handling of Violet's sexual education; another is Tan's hypnotic storytelling, especially when peeling the layers of mother-daughter relationships
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...
Amazing, Worth Reading, Book Worth, Amy Tans, Seeking Amy, Novels, Valley, Public Libraries, Historical Fiction
The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan is a historical fiction novel set in Shanghai in the early 1900′s. Although a little crude and brash, it is a book that should not be overlooked.
The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan. “A new Amy Tan novel is an event. Under her sharp-eyed observations of mothers and daughters and their inexplicable bonds, is a powerful story of love, family, courage, and history.” - Kaite Stover, Kansas City Public Library, Kansas City, MO
The Valley of Amazement - just took me into another world, loved the characters who had depth and were like people I knew. Definitely worth reading
Well I most certainly would not be at a football game without a book to read.

Football season: the perfect time for a good book.
You might be a bookworm if...you bring a book to the football game, or going to the Daytona 500 - that's me to a "T"!
And the basketball games, the baseball games, volleyball, hockey, swimming tournaments, golf tournaments, NASCAR races, cricket and golf (obviously), bowling alleys, track meets... Bleachers are great for reading!
You might be a bookworm if.... you bring a book to the football game....especially when you're in the marching band
I once asked my husband if I could do this. I wasn't allowed to go to the game.
I don't go to the football games because hubby and kids won't let me bring my book, but I do bring them to track meets and basketball games.

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.

December 2013 Adult Book Club- Big Brother by Lionel Shriver (fiction)
Big #Brother: A Novel - One of the most exciting and infuriating books I have read this year is #Big-Brother by #Lionel Shriver (HarperCollins). I cannot recommend this one enthusiastically enough!

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.
Book Club, Worth Reading, Chrisbohjalian, Armenian Genocide, Book Worth, Girls Generation, Sandcastle Girls, Novels, Chris Bohjalian
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian - Gloria/October 2013 A beautifully written, gripping historical novel that uses the backdrop of the 1915 Armenian Genocide in Syria to tell of the true devastation that occurred during the First World War.
September 19th 2013 2pm - Afternoon book club selection - The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian.
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian I have not read this book, but the synopsis grabbed me immediately. It is one I think I would like on my worth reading board.
A childhood ruined, an adulthood salvaged. A good story. A little irritating at times, but on the whole, I'm going with 4 stars.
