Stephine Meyer's Twilight Saga is amazing! I have read some of the first one, but never got into it because I saw the movies first. But, by the movies, I can already tell that this is defiantly a MUST READ! They include (in order) Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.
When I received the submission Little Bee by British author Chris Cleave in 2007 and read the first lines—“Most days I wish I was a British pound coin instead of an African girl. Everyone would be pleased to see me coming.”—the world fell away.
“The Help” takes place in the middle of the civil rights movement in Jackson, Miss. “The Help” goes beyond history to weave a touching storyline that at times is hilarious and at other times is heart-wrenching. Author Kathryn Stockett masterfully develops her characters and lets the reader have a taste of the societal humor and taboos of the time. The relationships between the women of the novel are genuine and complex.
