Danielle Trussoni: Angelology. This is NOT a good book.
Angelology by Danielle Trussoni will have you wishing that angels do exist.
This was a really interesting book. I really enjoyed it. I have not yet found anything else by Danielle Trussoni worth reading, unfortunately. But, there's a movie in the works that should be great based on this book. Wish Trussoni would hurry up and get a second book out in this series.

Doctor Sleep. Stephen King returns to the character and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless-- mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs...
Waiting for "the King's" new novel? Don't forget to join the book club for Stephen King's sequel to his classic The Shining, Doctor Sleep! http://literazee.com/book/doctor-sleep-a-novel/
Though very different in form and tone, Stephen King’s “Doctor Sleep” was a welcome follow-up to “The Shining”. Worth reading if for no other reason to find out just what happened to those characters decades later. -Mike

Stephen King - Doctor Sleep. Book Review. When you think about iconic horror novels a few jump immediately to mind: Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For more contemporary novels you might think of things like The Call Of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft, The Haunting Of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, and The Shining by Stephen King. If you have created a work of art that sits on such a high pedestal would you mess with it?

DIANA'S GREATEST TWENTIETH CENTURY THINKERS "He clasps the crag with crooked hands; close to the sun in lonely lands, ringed with the azure world, he stands." "He makes no friends who never made a foe." "How dull it is to pause, to make an end, to rust unburnished, not to shine in use! As though to breathe were life." "I am a part of all that I have seen." "I hold it true,what'er befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most; 'Tis better to have loved and lost, Than never to have loved at all." "I must lose myself in action, lest I wither in despair." "I the heir of all the ages, in the foremost files of time." "If thou shouldst never see my face again, pray for my soul. More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of." "In the long years liker they must grow; The man be more of woman, she of man." "Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers."

Into the Arms of Strangers: For nine months before the outbreak of World War II, Britain conducted an extraordinary rescue mission. It opened its doors to over 10,000 endangered children-90 per cent of them Jewish-from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. These children were taken into foster homes and hostels in Britain, expecting eventually to be reunited with their parents. Most of the children never saw their families again.

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain was pulled from reading lists at three Renton, Washington high schools (2004) after an African-American student said the book degraded her and her culture. Ironically, this book which was attacked after its first publication for being “too racially tolerant” is now being attacked for being “too racist.” Twain’s classic was deemed upon publication as “rough, coarse and inelegant,” and not suited for “intelligent, respectable people.”
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. Classic American Literature
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain: A satirical depiction of the social climate in the South just before the turn of the century, “Huck Finn” is largely considered to be the first Great American Novel.

1936 First Edition of Gone With The Wind hand signed by author, Margaret Mitchell. Even before the book’s publication, producer David O. Selznick had secured the film rights at Mitchell's asking price of $ 50,000, which was more than any studio had paid for the rights to an author’s first novel. He later sent her an additional $ 50,000 when he saw how well the film was received.
