The House on Riverton- september book club
One of my favorite books.
On my 2012 reading list
Kate Morton is a wonderfully evocative writer. Her novels feature strong female protagonists who explore the past in search of facts to clear up a mystery and thereby ease their own lives. I love the way she goes back and forth between the present and the past. This book, in particular, has a spectacular twist at the end. DO NOT SKIP AHEAD!
LOVED this - nearly as well as The Forgotten Garden.

I thought I had the story figured out several times, but no...one of those rare books that I couldn't wait to finish, but yet didn't want it to be over!!

Very good book. Our book club rated it 9.2/10. Though it is set in the late 1700s in the South, it feels surprisingly contemporary in the issues it addresses. It is surprising that a Canadian author could write so well about slavery.

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins -- June 2015 Book Club Book - Done! Good read. Twists up until the very end.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. 4 stars. if you don't mind unreliable narrators this fast paced & engaging read may be for you. it made me feel uncomfortable, angry, voyeuristic & hopeful. I had to keep turning the pages & though i figured it out, i enjoyed the journey. books read in 2015, novels, fiction, mystery, thriller, psychological thriller, alcoholics in fiction
Review for 'The Girl on the Train' by Paula Hawkins (http://readdbooks.blogspot.fi/2015/07/book-review-girl-on-train-by-paula.html)
THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins | A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives. | Second on my reading list, got this as a present for my birthday! Books are the greatest gifts.
The Girl on the Train, a debut psychological thriller from the UK, has roared out of the station to emerge as the first publishing blockbuster of 2015. Released on Jan. 13 and buzzed about as the next Gone Girl, Paula Hawkins' twisty, Hitchcockian novel, told by three unreliable female narrators (one a drunk) and featuring a buried body, is No. 2 on USA TODAY's #BestSelling #Books list.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Read this for my book club. It was good but I'm not sure what all the hype is about. It wasn't any better than a lot of stuff I've read.
September 2015 Book Club Pick // The first 60% of this book took a while to get through but the last 40% was hard to put down! Love and the struggle lead to a twisted murder.

On my "To Read" list... Another pinner said: "Little known fact from our history... 1,000 "white women" traded for peace with native Americans... amazing story. Couldn't put it down.--sounds good."
One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. One of my favorite books. Our book club read it and we still talk about how good it is.
One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus - historical fiction, the account of several "civilized" woman married to Cheyenne Indians (Chief Little Wolf) as part of a government program (General Grant) in the mid-800s in Nebraska territory. interesting, quick read - believable, draws you in, you won't want to put it down.
April - One Thousand White Women- 3/12 - OK I found this very interesting and enjoyed it until the last chapter. That is 2 book club books in a row that were downers at the end :
The story of Mary Dodd who travels west in 1875 to marry a Cheyenne Indian. A good historical fiction book!
Historical fiction about a woman who chooses to live with the Native Americans (1875) in order to find her personal freedom.
Wow, it just feels like a true story and what an emotional, completely unique, enthralling one at that. White women who are escaping all manner of lives go become "the wives" in a Native American tribe in order to meld white and "Indian" races together in early-ish America. Really great historical fiction. And I love novels written in journal or letter-form!
Book Club November 2014- One Thousand White Women, a good historical fiction book.
One of our first book club books. Still memorable.
The House at Tyneford by Natasha Solomons
Book Club, Books I Ve, Reading List, Books Books, Abbey Fans
The House at Tyneford: A Novel: Natasha Solomons • Personal list: Books Read in 2013 • Not as good as I was hoping. The storyline sounded promising, but there was a strange and hard to believe love triangle and the story flow was choppy. Also, the audiobook's narrator was exhausting to listen to. Too much lilting and over emotional, good accents, though.
A deliciously written, raspberry-jam-and-clotted-cream-scone of a book that Anglophiles, Downton Abbey fans, romance lovers, or simply anyone who appreciates exquisite wordcraft will enjoy.

Worth Reading, Awesome Book, Asperger, House Rules, Favorite Books, Favorite Author, Good Books, Picoult Book
jodi picoult's books always center around a controversial issue. the characters are so well developed that you feel you know them. the stories will tug your heart strings. the endings will twist your mind. this is my favorite book of hers. it explores the world of Asperger's Syndrome. please read!!
Awesome book and if you know or are close to or need to be to anyone on the Autism Spectrum, this is a must read. However any Jodi Picoult book is well worth reading as this woman is cutting edge, does amazing research and always a fantastic read!
House Rules. Such a good book! I highly, highly suggest it. It gives a great perspective from a boy with Aspergers and his family. Love it!
House Rules by Jodi Picoult: HOUSE RULES is about Jacob Hunt, a teenage boy with Asperger’s Syndrome. He’s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, and like many kids with AS, Jacob has a special focus on one subject – in his case, forensic analysis.
House Rules by Jodi Picoult. One of my all time favorite books. About a boy who struggles with Asperger's. I fell in love with this little boy! After I finished the last page of the book, I cried partially due to the fact that I knew as soon as I closed the book, I would miss that little boy.
House Rules - Jodi Picoult An amazing story for me to read because my Brother has Aspergers Syndrome.
House Rules - Awesome book, and a look into how Asperger's syndrome affects a family
House Rules. Awesome book!! Also my favorite author. :)
I love ALL Jodi Picoult books ---HOUSE RULES is about Jacob Hunt, a teenage boy with Asperger’s Syndrome. He’s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, and like many kids with AS, Jacob has a special focus on one subject – in his case, forensic analysis. He’s always showing up at crime scenes, thanks to the police scanner he keeps in his room, and telling the cops what they need to do…and he’s usually right. But then one day his tutor is found dead, and the police come to question him. All of the hallmark behaviors of Asperger’s – not looking someone in the eye, stimulatory tics and twitches, inappropriate affect – can look a heck of a lot like guilt to law enforcement personnel -- and suddenly, Jacob finds himself accused of murder. HOUSE RULES looks at what it means to be different in our society, how autism affects a family, and how our legal system works well for people who communicate a certain way – but lousy for those who don’t.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death relates the story of Liesel--a young German girl whose book-stealing and story-telling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding, as well as their neighbors.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Narrated by death about WWII in a town in Germany. Dark, charming and unusual. Will probably become a must read for teens and end up on curriculum reading lists. A must read for everyone.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak We loved this book. Interesting perspective of a German girl during WWII
The Book Thief: Markus Zusak: It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I read this book when I was in eighth grade, and it still impacts me today. Set during WWII, the main character is a German girl whose foster family harbors a young Jewish man. It is a fascinating story about family, friendship, and the power of words.
