Neil Gaiman's "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" This book might be the best book I have ever read. That simple. It is both a fantasy, a stark reminder of how a child's mind works, a journey into how children have a different, but just as relevant, truths and how memories are fleeting and sometimes only come to surface when we need them to.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Neil Gaiman. "I had been here, hadn't I, a long time ago? I was sure I had.

The review from Ruth Ozeki was definitely enough to put this novel on my 2014 reading list, though the plot sounds wonderful as well.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail. "A great book worth taking the time to read"
Just finished reading 'Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail' by Cheryl Strayed. Never been much of a memoir fan but this book was excellent. Well worth reading if you are looking for a good summer read

Postponed due to snow! We will discuss the The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty on Monday, March 16. I loved this book and can't wait to discuss it with others.

The Chaperone, a work of historical fiction by Laura Moriarty, shines the spotlight on a young Louise Brooks and Cora Carlisle, the older chaperone who accompanies her to New York. After just five weeks in the Big Apple, the pair is changed forever.
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty I really liked this story. The third part was a little rushed, but worth reading. There is an interview with Louise Brooks on YouTube, which was great to watch when I was done!
