Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford - "Set in the ethnic neighborhoods of Seattle during World War II and Japanese American internment camps, this debut novel tells the story of widower Henry Lee, his father, and his first love Keiko.

Bel Canto

Bel Canto is one of those books that completely transports you into another world. The characters, the setting and emotions evoked are wonderful. I have since read everything Ann Patchett has written - but Bel Canto remains my favourite

Devil in the White City

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America - this is a true story! A serial killer was preying on woman while the Chicago World's Fair was going on.

#6 in Favorite Books

"On an icy winter night in an isolated house in rural Vermont, a seasoned midwife named Sibyl Danforth takes desperate measures to save a baby's life.

Pat Conroy

I have this funny thing where I can't read my novels written by my favorite authors until they have a new work out. This is his latest book and was well worth the wait.

State of Wonder - Ann Patchett

State of Wonder - Ann Patchett Excellent. I liked it slightly less than Bel Canto but slightly more than The Magician's Assistant. I was a little unsatisfied by the ending.


On November three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? The only Stephen King book I have ever read, but it was great!

Another favorite!

I know I'm a bit late to the party, but I highly recommend this read. Intelligent writing with great momentum. Stay clear of book number two.
