One of my two favorite books of all time! "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" — The American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century. This is one of those heartbreaking yet hopeful stories that will stay with you for a long time.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Probably my all time favorite book. I have read it so many times and each time it is better than the last.
I know its hard to say what your favorite book is especially since you are ever changing and everyday you feel differently. But this, in my short 18 years of life (in which I have read many books) this remains my all time favorite. There is a flavor it left in my mouth and heart that is in no way interchangable. http://www.novelexplorer.com/category/a-tree-grows-in-brooklyn/

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. My all time favorite book.
My favorite book, worth reading again!!!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows I loved the format of this historical fiction! It's comprised entirely of letters sent between the residents of Guernsey (members of the "Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society") and Juliet, a writer in London. She wanted to know more about the German occupation of Guernsey during World War II. They wanted to share their stories of hardship and triumph. And so the plot unfolds! Juliet's witty writing reminded me of some of my favorite blogs... if she was around today (and a real person!), I just know she'd have one. The Help by Kathryn Stockett You know a book is a good one, when every girl on the train is reading it on the way to work, and when Wade said he'd seen lots of people with "The Help" in tow, I knew I had to add it to my reading list. (My friend loaned it to me, so that helped too!) Set in Jackson at the start of the civil rights movement, it's the story of three women who become the unlikeliest of friends as they work together to write an eye-opening book about the reality of Jackson's young white women and the black maids they employ. Loved it. And Hooray! I saw that it's been made into a movie and coming to theaters this summer. The entire time I was reading, I was imagining what a good movie it would make. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith I cannot believe I waited so long to read this book! (It wasn't part of my high school English syllabus, and though I'd recognized the title, I didn't know anything about it until a friend recommended it.) First published in 1943, "Tree" tells the story of Francie Nolan, a bright, but lonely girl growing up in the Brooklyn tenements at the turn-of-the-century. Living in poverty, she had very few possessions and lived a pretty tough life, enduring hardships no child should ever have to face. But she had a vivid imagination and found simple pleasures in even the littlest things. Betty Smith's writing through the voice of a child is so beautiful and memorable and makes this book easily one of my favorites. The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear by Don and Audrey Wood The last few weeks or so, this book has been at the top of our pile of bedtime books. Sometimes it's actually the only one we read because before I even have a chance to say "the end," Henry and Amelia are already asking with great insistence for "moh, moh, moh!" Most nights we read it five or six times before they've had their fill (and I've managed to convince them that the little mouse has gone to bed). Thank goodness it's a cute story and with even cuter illustrations, otherwise I'd go crazy reading it so much!

THE BOOK that EVERY child should have read to them!! I read this to my children when they were small (4 kids ages 2-7). We read two chapters a night (even though they would BEG me to read "just one more chapter"). I laughed out loud while reading this....and found myself trying to read through a haze of tears. It is just a beautiful story about a boy and his dogs. Very touching...and so worth reading over and over again. (All of my children have re-read this story on their own...several times).

Love this book - very dark, but SO good
Apocalyptic Novel, Book Club, Powerful Book
Such a powerful book. It makes you think about how far you would go as a parent to keep hope alive in desperate times.
I'm really intrigued by all the post-apocalyptic novels out there. it's such an interesting way to tell a story that feels like believable fiction!
Haunting and hard to put down. I was the only one in book club who though the ending offered hope...
This is the best post-apocalyptic novel I've read in years. It was very, very disturbing, but I still couldn't put it down.

book cover: Little Women by Louise May Alcott ... depicts mother Marmee reading to daughters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy
"Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents," grumbled Jo, lying on the rug." - Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
Louisa M. Alcott: Little Women _ This is one of my favorite books of all time, and one of the first books I remember my mother reading to me. I identified strongly with Jo, who is strong, creative, and independent. I totally despised Amy, who is superficial, fussy, and precious. Still, when I read it, I want the best for Beth and am in awe of the calm that Marmy and Meg share.
we find ourselves continually reaching for Little Women to revisit one of our first fictional loves, and one of our first heartaches. Something about Jo's independence, Laurie's broken heart, and the bond of the sisters keeps this one timeless. Debate is still out about Little Men and Jo's Boys.

A classic fave. “Little Women” in 1868-69 by Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888). The book was written in the Alcott family home, Concord, Massachussets. The novel follows the lives of four sisters and is loosely based on the author’s childhood experiences. The work was a fiction novel for girls that veered from the normal writings for children, has three major themes: domesticity, work, and true love. Little Women was one of the most influential novels, creating a new form, which is a unique model.

The Children's Book by A.S. Byatt ~ Beautiful Cover
The Children's Book (Book) : Byatt, A. S. : Random House, Inc.From the renowned author of Possession, The Children’s Book is the absorbing story of the close of what has been called the Edwardian summer: the deceptively languid, blissful period that ended with the cataclysmic destruction of World War I. In this compelling novel, A.S. Byatt summons up a whole era, revealing that beneath its golden surface lay tensions that would explode into war, revolution and unbelievable change — for the generation that came of age before 1914 and, most of all, for their children.The novel centres around Olive Wellwood, a fairy tale writer, and her circle, which includes the brilliant, erratic craftsman Benedict Fludd and his apprentice Phillip Warren, a runaway from the poverty of the Potteries; Prosper Cain, the soldier who directs what will become the Victoria and Albert Museum; Olive’s brother-in-law Basil Wellwood, an officer of the Bank of England; and many others from every layer of society. A.S. Byatt traces their lives in intimate detail and moves between generations, following the children who must choose whether to follow the roles expected of them or stand up to their parents’ “porcelain socialism.” Olive’s daughter Dorothy wishes to become a doctor, while her other daughter, Hedda, wants to fight for votes for women. Her son Tom, sent to an upper-class school, wants nothing more than to spend time in the woods, tracking birds and foxes. Her nephew Charles becomes embroiled with German-influenced revolutionaries. Their portraits connect the political issues at the heart of nascent feminism and socialism with grave personal dilemmas, interlacing until The Children’s Book becomes a perfect depiction of an entire world.Olive is a fairy tale writer in the era of Peter Pan and Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind In the Willows, not long after Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. At a time when children in England suffered deprivation by the millions, the concept of childhood was being refined and elaborated in ways that still influence us today. For each of her children, Olive writes a special, private book, bound in a different colour and placed on a shelf; when these same children are ferried off into the unremitting destruction of the Great War, the reader is left to wonder who the real children in this novel are.The Children’s Book is an astonishing novel. It is an historical feat that brings to life an era that helped shape our own as well as a gripping, personal novel about parents and children, life’s most painful struggles and its richest pleasures. No other writer could have imagined it or created it.
