    One of my favorite books ever. Historical fiction by Anita Diamante who describes in vivid detail the Biblical love story between Jacob and Rachel. She beautifully intertwines the story from Genesis and historical accounts of how people lived and gives us a complete look at what life during that time might have looked like. Wonderfully done.

Who has never wondered if there might not really be a tempter sitting on our shoulders or dogging our steps? C.S. Lewis dispels all doubts. In The Screwtape Letters, one of his bestselling works, we are made privy to the instructional correspondence between a senior demon, Screwtape, and his wannabe diabolical nephew Wormwood. As mentor, Screwtape coaches Wormwood in the finer points, tempting his "patient" away from God. One of my all time favs!!

In Sterling, New Hampshire, 17-year-old high school student Peter Houghton has endured years of verbal and physical abuse at the hands of classmates. His best friend, Josie Cormier, succumbed to peer pressure and now hangs out with the popular crowd that often instigates the harassment. One final incident of bullying sends Peter over the edge and leads him to commit an act of violence that forever changes the lives of Sterling’s residents.

Absolutely fascinating. A real page turner as you learn about circus culture in depression era America

What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D

A wondrous mystical tale with much philosophy and life advice...in some ways reminiscent of "Candide"--I'm well over 16 and it doesn't "fall flat" to me

"It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . ."

historical fiction - Michelle Moran is an incredibly gifted and amazing author.

I have mixed feelings on this book. I don't think I particularly liked the main character or her choices but I still think that there was great social commentary. And I think that Kate Chopin's writing is exemplary. I loved all of her short stories that we read in class as well as The Awakening.

Of note, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was hands-down my favorite book (and favorite series).

Books! Love to read. It takes you to another place and time
