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.

Dystopia is everyone's favorite buzzword right now, but what actually makes a good dystopian novel? This article from the Horn Book is an excellent breakdown of the genre (booklist included!). #ReadersAdvisory
One of my favorite books. After you've read it you'll want to get off the "feed" and you'll question what technology is doing to our society.
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.
March Online Bookclub. Speculative Fiction. Written 10 years ago, the author imagined a constant feed of content directly into our brains. The Young Adult novel explores the still current issues of technology, privacy and identity.

patti smith writing about robert mapplethorpe. and about herself. how could it be less than a National Book Award winner?
Just Kids...Patti Smith's early years with Robert Mapplethorpe...a tremendous insight into two beautiful souls - their friendship and their art
The touching memoir by Patti Smith about her lifelong friendship with artist Robert Mapplethorpe that began when they were "Just Kids" is as beautifully written as it gets. Patti Smith won the National Book award for it in 2010, and she is developing it into a feature film.
In 'Just Kids', Patti Smith, the legendary American artist offers a glimpse of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the epochal days of New York City and the Chelsea Hotel in the late sixties and seventies.
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.
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.
Patti Smith writes about she and Robert Mapplethorpe's time in NYC. (my favorite book of 2010)

The Good House: A Novel by Ann Leary loved this book, read it two months ago and still thinking about it - life is complicated but that doesn't mean that life isn't good...!
The Good House, by Ann Leary (Top New Fiction on Goodreads, January 2013) - excellent reading about life for a 60-year-old real estate agent. I found it funny, sad and thoroughly enjoyable! Recommend and a definite thumbs up

10 books to read in 2013 "This is my favorite book from my favorite author, a novel so good it's edible. I completely devoured this story of Hildy Good, a successful real estate broker in a small New England town; she's a divorced, irreverent un-recovered alcoholic, who finds herself in a surprising romance. The characters are smart, fun, warm and flawed. Every page is a gift to read." —Julie Klam, author of Friendkeeping

Blankets: an illustrated novel by Craig Thompson. 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. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith.
My all-time favorite graphic novel.
