Damned good book! Yes it's a bit...odd...but that's the beauty of it.
“I finally understand what the poets have written. In spring, moved to passion; in autumn only regret.” For young Peony, betrothed to a suitor she has never met, these lyrics from The Peony Pavilion mirror her own longings. In the garden of the Chen Family Villa, amid the scent of ginger, green tea, and jasmine, a small theatrical troupe is performing scenes from this epic opera, a live spectacle few females have ever seen. Like the heroine in the drama, Peony is the cloistered daughter of...

Book Club: Let’s Discuss “Shanghai Girls” – Dear Wendy
Shanghai Girls, by Lisa See (great book about Chinese culture!) I loved this book!
Shanghai Girls - wonderful story. The book is divided into three parts: Fate, Fortune, and Destiny. It centers on the complex relationship between two sisters, Pearl and May, as they go through great pain and suffering in leaving war-torn Shanghai and try to adjust to the difficult roles of wives in arranged marriages and of Chinese immigrants to the U.S.

A book worth reading.
Chasing Fire ~ Nora Roberts; my favorite author
Nora Roberts - This was an awesome book.
Chasing fire by Nora Roberts. "Spiced with Roberts' dry sense of #humor, seasoned with fascinating details about wildfire fighting, and sparked by a generous measure of high-adrenaline action and high-octane passion, Chasing Fire is a riveting, five-alarm tale of romantic suspense." From Booklist Review. #romanticsuspense #noraroberts
Chasing Fire -Nora Roberts My first Nora Roberts book and it was amazing!
MUST READ MYSTERY! Black Hills / Nora Roberts ~ Nora Roberts takes readers deep into the rugged Black Hills of South Dakota, where the shadows keep secrets, hunters stalk the land, and a childhood friendship matures into an adult passion.

Steig Larson - The Millenium Trilogy. All three were a good read.

This is the Millennium Trilogy by Steig Larsson. I picked up the first book & within 2 weeks I had read both & started on the 3rd! :-) Most noticeable title of this series would be "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" which has been made into 2 different movies. One in Swedish & the newest in English. I am dying to see both movies! Anyway, interesting fact about the books, "when Stieg started writing the Millennium series, he laid an outline of a total of ten books. Before his death in November 2004, he had finished the first three books and was well underway with the fourth. In an email written to a friend a month before his death, Stieg says that he has finished about half of the fourth book. Stieg says that he has written the beginning and the end, but that the middle part is not finished yet." :-( ~Taken from http://www.stieglarsson.com/the-4th-book RIP Mr. Larsson, what I wouldn't give to know what you think about your books becoming such big hits!
