Love Medicine - Next book club book! Can't wait to see what we're going to eat?
"Love Medicine" by Louise Erdrich - 2012 Summer Reading List
A composite novel that follows an Ojibwe family through the different generations. Each chapter is narrated by a different family member and it's cool to see how different events are affected just by perspective. Beautifully written and worth reading.
The stunning first novel in Louise Erdrich's Native American series, Love Medicine tells the story of two families -- the Kashpaws and the Lamartines. Written in Erdrich's uniquely poetic, powerful style, it is a multigenerational portrait of strong men and women caught in an unforgettable drama of anger, desire, and the healing power that is love medicine.

“Dead girl walking,” the boys say in the halls. “Tell us your secrets,” the girls whisper, one toilet to another. I am that girl. I am the space between my thighs, daylight shining through. I am the bones they want, wired on a porcelain frame. Lia and Cassie were best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies. But now Cassie is dead. A fantastic YA novel dealing with eating disorders.
Try: Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson - Wintergirls is another young adult novelthat brilliantly examines loss, coming to terms with a friend's illness, and finally understanding your own. Lia is very, very skinny, and that's the way she likes it. But after her best friend dies from complications with bulimia, her world starts to unravel.
YA book (8th grade and up). Powerful story about a girl with an eating disorder.
Lia and her friend Cassie struggle with anorexia, but when Cassie dies, Lia is left feeling haunted, struggling with the sickness and path to recovery. With issues of self-image and the portrayal of unattainable standards of beauty all around us, this would be a good book to teach about the subject of anorexia. It is also important to note that not only girls struggle with self image and eating disorders, and this book also shows the power of words and the impact they may have on others.
Wintergirls, one of the best books I've ever read, worth reading

Bird by Bird Anne Lamott. I feel like this woman is stealing thoughts out of my head sometimes. When I need inspiration to work on my "writing project", I just read a few pages of this book and find myself swimming in ideas. Traveling Mercies is also a great book by Lamott.

A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O'Connor. I'm referring specifically to the short story. I'm reading more of her right now, so my opinion on the rest is as yet unformed.
A Good Man Is Hard To Find (& other stories) - Flannery O'Connor
"In my own stories I have found that violence is strangely capable of returning my characters to reality and preparing them to accept their moment of grace. Their heads are so hard that almost nothing else will do the work. This idea, that reality is something to which we must be returned to at considerable cost, is one which is seldom understood by the casual reader, but it is one which is implicit in the Christian view of the world." —Flannery O' Connor
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. Reading it now. Great book.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I have never liked any movie version of this I've seen, so I never made the effort to read the book. That was a mistake that I recently rectified. It has simply never been adapted to the screen properly. Such a powerful story! I don't think it was insanity, particularly on Catherine's end. Dysfunction...oh yes. And there were no ghosts. *rolls eyes* But I do think they were two people who were bigger and wilder than their humanity allowed them to be.
My absolute favorite book , read it about six times, just between ages 12 and 14. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte: The ultimate gothic romance. Full of mystery and misery.
Another book I've read over and over #wutheringheights #heathcliff #cathy
Wuthering Heights - Emily Brontë This is literally my favorite book in the entire universe. Every time I read it I love it even more.
Wuthering Heights (it better be worth reading)
One of my favorites since I first picked it up. A book worth reading over and over again.

Catcher in the Rye I reread this thinking I missed all the greatness and story line during high school. Sadly, I still didn't like it and still think the books cover is 100% better than the book itself.
"The Catcher in the Rye": Read "Catcher in the Rye" because Salinger gets you. He knows what it's like to want to save a world that may not necessarily appreciate what you have to offer. It's worth reading if you feel an earnest need to know you're not alone on this planet.
The Catcher in the Rye - one of my favorite books I read for high school.
Definitely a book worth reading

The Hunger Games- Favorite book series ever! Can't wait for the movie!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins...I am halfway through this, but I already know this book is well written and is a book worth reading. I wanted to read it before seeing the movie, which I thought I would never want to see. I was wrong about that!

Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. (harper lee, to kill a mockingbird)
