(NEW BOOK BY JK ROWLING) The Cuckoo's Calling: Robert Galbraith: 9780316206846: Amazon.com: Books
JK Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, has written an engrossing mystery novel which engaged me from cover to cover. I am smitten with the private detective, Cormoran Strike, and his assistant, Robin, and I look forward to their next adventure. This story helps to unfold the mysterious events surrounding a beautiful model's apparent suicide. Complicated and rich, the plot has you guessing throughout the entire book. Worth reading for something completely different.

Queen Elizabeth, Queen Catherine, Book
Biography of Queen Catherine, first wife of Henry VIII. Great read if you like history!
A young, and very pretty, Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII. Catherine was the youngest daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain -- the ones who bankrolled Columbus. From the time she was very young, she knew that she would marry the English prince and become Queen of England. How devastating it must have been when Arthur, Henry's older brother, died so young. Lost and alone in a strange country -- I can't imagine how she must have felt. So was it really true that she and Arthur had never consummated their marriage? Or was that her desperate ploy to be allowed to stay in England and marry Henry -- to finally fulfill what she had always been told was her destiny. Who but she knew the truth, now that Arthur was dead? If she did lie, it was a huge gamble, and the consequences of it were devastating. I haven't read this book yet; it's on my "to read" shelf.

New book review from my blog, Summer Reading Project: In the Kingdom of Men, by Kim Barnes
Cover Art for In the kingdom of men : a novel
In the Kingdom of Men - Kim Barnes A very interesting story about the lives of Americans in Saudi Arabia at the beginning of oil operations. The protagonist is pretty selfish, made it hard for me to relate, but I still thought this was a good read.

A wonderful retelling of one women's survival. Not your typical story. I love how she addressed the reader. Just when I was wondering "why". She responded. Some holocaust books are difficult to read, this was not.
The Nazi Officer's Wife by Edith Hahn Beer. Book club read for Sept 2011. Interesting. Depressing. Wouldn't read again.
Amazing book on how a Jewish woman married a Nazi officer to save her life. What happens when he learns the truth??
The Nazi Officer's Wife is a true story about a Jewish woman who passed under the Nazi radar by marrying one of them. Her story is incredible, and really focuses on thanking all of the brave non-Jews who put their life in jeopardy to help her.
I love reading books on the holocaust or anything historical. you can almost relive what they write.

Once, by Morris Gleitzman. A young Jewish boy's hope, imagination, and spirit are all he has to stay alive during the Holocaust. About two hours of reading through tears but really worth it. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
During World War II, Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, organized a rescue network of fellow social workers to save 2,500 Jewish children from certain death in the Warsaw ghetto. Incredibly, after the war her heroism, like that of many others, was suppressed by communist Poland and remained virtually unknown for 60 years.
Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project is a book about Irena Sendler's inspiring story and students from rural Kansas who discovered this hero from the Holocaust.

"Life in a Jar: The Irene Sendler Project" by Jack Mayer. During World War II, Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, organized a rescue network of fellow social workers to save 2,500 Jewish children from certain death in the Warsaw ghetto. Incredibly, after the war her heroism, like that of many others, was suppressed by communist Poland and remained virtually unknown for 60 years.
"These eyewitness accounts are powerful, detailed and horrifying. Of particular note is the last chapter, in which some of the veterans record what happened to them after the war; decades later, many still struggled with nightmares and rage." –USA Today "Never forget is the message that these vets and survivors carry to schools, churches, and synagogues, and other places…Hirsh’s The Liberators helps [them] carry on that important work." –Philadelphia Inquirer

*add this to my reading list* The Black History of the White House by Clarence Lusane. For many Americans, the White House stands as a symbol of liberty and justice. But its gleaming facade hides harsh realities, from the slaves who built the home to the presidents who lived there and shaped the country's racial history, often for the worse. In The Black History of the White House, Clarence Lusane traces the path of race relations in America by telling a very specific history — the stories of those African-Americans who built, worked at and visited the White House.

The Black History of the White House (City Lights Open Media): Clarence Lusane: #blackhistory This book is an eye opener. I am a layman, not a college professor, or a huge intellect...just a person that likes to read. It is a history book about African-Americans in relation to the White House, beginning with a slave who escaped from George Washington! The reasoning was amazing in this incident. READ more
White House Easter egg roll, 1898 This photograph was taken at the 1898 White House Easter egg roll. William McKinley was the president. At the end of the nineteenth century, few African Americans were permitted to visit the White House. As the [above] photo indicates, however, black children were allowed to attend the White House’s annual Easter egg-rolling ceremony. Black children and white children playing on the White House premises one day a year was acceptable.
"fascinating story of the final days of Nicholas and Alexandra as seen through the eyes of the Romanovs’ young kitchen boy, Leonka. Now an ancient Russian immigrant, Leonka claims to be the last living witness to the Romanovs’ brutal murders and sets down the dark secrets of his past with the imperial family. Historically vivid and compelling.
Another book that really intrigued me about the possibility of it all. . . "fascinating story of the final days of Nicholas and Alexandra as seen through the eyes of the Romanovs’ young kitchen boy, Leonka. Now an ancient Russian immigrant, Leonka claims to be the last living witness to the Romanovs’ brutal murders and sets down the dark secrets of his past with the imperial family. Does he hold the key to the many questions surrounding the family’s murder? Historically vivid and compelling.
