The Woman Upstairs - by Claire Messud. An absorbing treatment of an unusual topic ... I wasn't sure for a while just where this was going, but then I got to the point where I could not put it down, and then ... wow! it punched hard, right up through the final sentence. Recommended, especially for all you "women upstairs" ... we know who we are.
My favorite book of 2013. Unlikeable main character. Female version of Dostoyevsky's narrator in "Notes from Underground." Only read this if you like unlikeable characters.

Another Young Adult novel, but it's so realistic that anyone living in America would be affected by it.
This is a fantastic Young Adult/Adult Science Fiction Satire about our on line society,consumerism,trends and life values. This satire slides deftly between funny and tragic. This is the first book by this author I have read, but I am looking forward to reading a lot more base on this one.

Nobel Prize winner Yasunari Kawabata’s Snow Country is widely considered to be the writer’s masterpiece: a powerful tale of wasted love set amid the desolate beauty of western Japan. At an isolated mountain hot spring, with snow blanketing every surface, Shimamura, a wealthy dilettante meets Komako, a lowly geisha. In chronicling the course of this doomed romance, Kawabata has created a story for the ages — a stunning novel dense in implication and exalting in its sadness.

Book Review of "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes. One of my favorite books of 2015!
Great typography on the "Me Before You" book cover by Jojo Moyes
".....things might change, grow, or fail, but that life did go on. That we were all part of some great cycle, some pattern that it was only God's purpose to understand." ~ Me Before You Me Before You by JoJo Moyes was another book I stumbled upon while perusing my library's e-book selection. And, boy, am I glad I did. This novel will definitely be on my list of favorite books read in 2015. Louisa Clark finds herself unemployed after the cafe she works at closes. Desperate for a job, she takes a chance on an unusual position working as a caregiver for a quadriplegic, Will Traynor. She discovers that Will suffered his injuries in an accident only two years earlier, but prior to it lived a very active lifestyle filled with a high-powered job, luxurious travel and physical adventures. Now, confined to a wheelchair, Will has lost all desire to live. Louisa, determined to make Will see life is worth living, sets out on a mission to help Will enjoy himself again. They find much more than either of them anticipated. Yet, sometimes love isn't enough. Through Will and Louisa, Moyes reminds readers to live in the moment. They both must learn to let go of a past that prohibits them from living in the present.Throughout the story, you will be asking yourself, just who is saving who? Sometimes what seems like a selfish act becomes the most unselfish act of love imaginable. "You only get one life. It's actually your duty to live it as fully as possible." ~ Me Before You I normally take a ton of notes when I'm reading a book for review. However, with Me Before You I didn't. I just felt this story more than I have any other novel in a very long time. This beautiful and unusual love story takes readers deep inside the unique relationship between these characters. Louisa and Will are so alive, so real. Moyes' writing style is carefree and flowing, yet sensual and extremely intimate at the same time. Me Before You is not your typical love story. Rather, it is a love story of the mind, friendship, and deep connection. It is a close look at how one human being can inspire another to be the best he can be. It will leave you on an emotional overload craving for more. I personally didn't want this one to end and had to pace myself so I wouldn't finish it too quickly. The sequel is due out in September of this year and the film adaptation is due out in June of 2016! Read more of my Book Reviews.

Just Kids, by Patti Smith - B Smith. National Book Award: Nonfiction, 2010. An artist and musician recounts her romance, lifetime friendship and shared love of art with Robert Mapplethorpe, in an illustrated memoir that includes a colorful cast of characters, including Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, William Burroughs and more.
Just Kids - Patti Smith Beautiful, poignant memoir of her time in New York in the 1960s and her love affair with Robert Mapplethorpe. Despite often being in difficult situations (giving up her baby; being homeless; having to choose between art and food) Smith always retains an air of innocence. Great to hear about NYC as it was then.
"Just kids / Patti Smith. In this memoir, singer-songwriter Patti Smith shares tales of New York City : the denizens of Max's Kansas City, the Hotel Chelsea, Scribner's, Brentano's and Strand bookstores and her new life in Brooklyn with a young man named Robert Mapplethorpe--the man who changed her life with his love, friendship, and genius."
Patti Smith writes about she and Robert Mapplethorpe's time in NYC. (my favorite book of 2010)

Just Kids by Patti Smith | Fall Reading List
In Just Kids, Patti Smith’s first book of prose, the legendary American artist offers a never-before-seen glimpse of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the epochal days of New York City and the ChelseaHotel in the late sixties and seventies. An honest and moving story of youth and friendship, Smith brings the same unique, lyrical quality to Just Kids as she has to the rest of her formidable body of work—from her influential 1975 album Horses to her visual art and poetry.

Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers.

For years and years, I labored under the assumption that comic books were only read by nerdy guys with a childish penchant for superheroes. But after seeing Marjane Satrapi’s harrowing and exuberant film, Persepolis, I was shocked to find that it was adapted from a graphic memoir. I had to read it—and I’ve been hooked on the genre ever since. Heart wrenching and intimate, vivacious and funny, these graphic memoirs will turn anyone into a true believer.

We’ve been bad about posting book reviews lately (though we haven’t stopped reading all of the wonderful books about and set in Africa). We just finished ‘Americanah‘ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and while it’s not focused on animals or safaris, or set in a country that we regularly visit, we were enchanted by the story …
A 28-year-old history professor with a wild streak, wakes up in jail-- yet again --after another epic alcoholic blackout. This time, though, a mother and daughter are dead, run over in Patsy's driveway. Patsy goes to prison, sobers up, and makes ongoing amends to her victims' family. Then, another piece of news turns up, casting her crime, and her life, in a different and unexpected light. - See more at: http://highlandpark.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1631623035_blame#sthash.jX5M7WyZ.dpuf

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle - Chinook Arch Regional Library System
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle (Book) : Murakami, Haruki : Japan's most highly regarded novelist now vaults into the first ranks of international fiction writers with this heroically imaginative novel, which is at once a detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and an excavation of the buried secrets of World War II. In a Tokyo suburb a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife's missing cat. Soon he finds himself looking for his wife as well in a netherworld that lies beneath the placid surface of Tokyo. As these searches intersect, Okada encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists: a psychic prostitute; a malevolent yet mediagenic politician; a cheerfully morbid sixteen-year-old-girl; and an aging war veteran who has been permanently changed by the hideous things he witnessed during Japan's forgotten campaign in Manchuria. Gripping, prophetic, suffused with comedy and menace, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force equal in scope to the masterpieces of Mishima and Pynchon.

Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. Marjane's child's-eye view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity. And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love.

GARLIC AND SAPPHIRES is Ruth Reichl's riotous account of the many disguises she employs to dine anonymously. There is her stint as Molly Hollis, a frumpy blond with manicured nails and an off-beige Armani suit that Ruth takes on when reviewing Le Cirque. The result: her famous double review of the restaurant: first she ate there as Molly; and then as she was coddled and pampered on her visit there as Ruth, New York Times food critic.What is even more remarkable about Reichl's spy games is that as she takes on these various disguises, she finds herself changed not just superficially, but in character as well. She gives a remarkable account of how one's outer appearance can very much influence one's inner character, expectations, and appetites.As she writes, "Every restaurant is a theater . . . even the modest restaurants offer the opportunity to become someone else, at least for a little while." GARLIC AND SAPPHIRES is a reflection on personal identity and role playing in the decadent, epicurean theaters of the restaurant world.

"Up out of the lampshade, startled by the overhead light, flew a large nocturnal butterfly that began circling the room. The strains of the piano and violin rose up weakly from below." From The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, my favorite book!
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera -- Czech Republic -- Follows the lives of four main characters and...the poor decisions they make. Probably one of my least favorite books I've ever read. I wouldn't have finished it if it hadn't been an assignment for my fiction literature class.
