The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot our September 2012 RHDR book.
One of my all time favorite books!
Henrietta Lacks One of the best books I've read in a long time. A true story about medical research.
Henrietta Lacks- I am reading this now for a book club. I was not excited as I enjoy more fictional texts, however, to my surprise it is very fascinating. I have had a difficult time putting it down.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" (1925) 1st Edition hardcover designed by Francis Cugat. Great book cover. Great book.
My favorite book of all time... The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
I actually read this in high school, and the movie was sooo well done. F. Scott Fitzgerald "The Great Gatsby"
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Undeniably one of the greatest book jackets of all time.
books worth reading The exemplary novel of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgerald's third book, The Great Gatsby (1925), stands as the supreme achievement of his career. T.S. Eliot read it three times and saw it as "the first step" American fiction had taken since Henry James; H.L. Mencken praised "the charm and beauty of the writing," as well as Fitzgerald's sharp social sense; and Thomas Wolfe hailed it as Fitzgerald's "best work" so far. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love

Gregory Maguire, oh Gregory Maguire. I know this book needs no explanation. Love, love, love. #book #gregorymaguire #wicked
Wicked (Gregory Maguire) a very good book and series, but a little hard to get through. All of Maguire's books are beautifully imagined pieces that really transport you to amazing places
Wicked by Gregory Maguire (all of his books are worth reading, but this one is still my favorite)

#Nineteen Minutes - Jodi Piccoult
Picoult Book, Worth Reading, Jodie Picoult, Book Worth, 19 Minute, Favorit Book, Reading Lists, Nineteen Minute, High Schools
Nineteen Minutes was an amazing story. It kept me hooked from beginning to end. Definitely a book worth reading more than once!
best Jodi Picoult book in my opinion. About a high school shooting, and the whole book takes place in 19 minutes.
This is one of my favorite books by Jodi picoult but most of her books are all worth reading.
Nineteen Minutes. - Another for my need to read list :)
One of my favorite Jodi Picoult books. I think almost everyone can identify with the book in some way. In this emotionally charged novel, Jodi Picoult delves beneath the surface of a small town to explore what it means to be different in our society. In Sterling, New Hampshire, 17-year-old high school student Peter Houghton has endured years of verbal and physical abuse at the hands of classmates. His best friend, Josie Cormier, succumbed to peer pressure and now hangs out with the popular crowd that often instigates the harassment. One final incident of bullying sends Peter over the edge and leads him to commit an act of violence that forever changes the lives of Sterling’s residents. Even those who were not inside the school that morning find their lives in an upheaval, including Alex Cormier. The superior court judge assigned to the Houghton case, Alex—whose daughter, Josie, witnessed the events that unfolded—must decide whether or not to step down. She’s torn between presiding over the biggest case of her career and knowing that doing so will cause an even wider chasm in her relationship with her emotionally fragile daughter. Josie, meanwhile, claims she can’t remember what happened in the last fatal minutes of Peter’s rampage. Or can she? And Peter’s parents, Lacy and Lewis Houghton, ceaselessly examine the past to see what they might have said or done to compel their son to such extremes. Rich with psychological and social insight, Nineteen Minutes is a riveting, poignant, and thought-provoking novel that has at its center a haunting question. Do we ever really know someone?
The wives of Jacob giving us a new view of biblical women's society. Our book club picked this and I was not that thrilled, but once I started reading it, I was hooked. I loved this book.

At the heart of the story is an abandoned orphanage, a home for very, very strange children and a modern boy who is dealing with the loss of his grandfather. ~Really good book

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.
Read this a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
