"For those of you who are wary of a graphic novel, let me put you at ease: Alison Bechdel’s tragicomic is for the truest of literary lovers, as she explains her relationship with her father through their mutual love of books and the art of storytelling. This book is first and foremost a daughter’s retelling of history, with Bechdel’s illustrations as complement and guide." - Lauren Araujo

"Is it a blessing or a curse to live forever? Winnie Foster must decide when faced with the choice. She also must choose whether to keep the Tuck family's secret or make it known to the world, an act which would bring about a change that the world is not ready to experience. The New York Times called it 'a fearsome and beautifully written book that can't be put down or forgotten.' Read decades ago, it has stayed with me in ways that few books have." - Mary Grey James

"I love this Texas family saga which is really a metaphor for the taming and settling of the whole United States." - Kathy Schultenover

Everything I Never Told You

Gotta love Kingsolver and Family

The Shoemaker's Wife,

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold...a beautiful book. Only book I read for book club. I liked it a lot though

From award-winning novelist Wendy Webb comes a spine-tingling mystery about family secrets set in a big, old haunted house on Lake Superior. EXCELLENT Mystery!! Read 7/15

The Poisonwood Bible, Barbara Kingsolver

A poignant and stirring debut about family, grief and guilt.

This Is Where I Leave You

one of the best ever!!

After I'm Gone: A Novel: Laura Lippman:

Stop whatever you are doing and read this today! 5 Stars. Captivating, compelling, insightful and secrets a mile a minute. I love this book!

Probably my absolute favorite nonfiction of 2013. This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage

Henry McAllen and his city-bred wife, Laura, moves to the Mississippi Delta for a cotton farm life. Facing difficulties both social and environmental, can this small family persevere despite things occurring beyond their control?
