am I the only one who hated "Never Let Me Go"? I just don't get it. and who the heck has time to read books from the 1700s?? -- Book bucket list.
I'm always searching for new books with great messages and meaning. Now I have over a thousand! Book bucket list.
Book bucket list. I'm curious to see what others see are the 1001 books that we "must read" before we die.
Now this makes sense! A "must read" list of only 100, 200 or 300 books just won't cut it. Even this list of 1001 is somewhat limited. Everyone will find some favourites missing even here!..... kp. 1001 books to read before you die. Also has a good children's book list.

I absolutely LOVE this imagined cover! I had (still have) the creepy silver paperback from the 70s that I (once again) took off my mom's shelf. I thought in fifth grade that "Helter Skelter" was disturbing, and then I read this right afterwards. Yes, I was a bit precocious and not a tentative reader. This book made the Wicked Witch of the West look like a cartoon character. And I wouldn't go in the basement alone for the first twelve years of my life because of that chick! There's a reason that Stephen King is a publishing God, and this (to me) is reason number 1. With a bullet. I mean, with a mallet.
Looking forward to the sequel

I love this book cover
Kubrick : Oliver Munday Graphic Design. Very clean, simple, and evocative, with just a touch of morbid humor. #illustration #art #icons #graphics
SEMPEROPER : Susann Stefanizen — Designspiration. The Shining, one of the most jarring and uncertain horror films of all time, would have to be considered my favorite. Adapted from Stephen King's terrifying novel, Stanley Kubrick delivers a witty, fascinating, and brutal screenplay that only Jack Nicholson could bring to life with such ease and wisdom. What this horror movie encompasses is not ghosts or possessions, but instead it is the madness that ensues from isolation and the energies that madness of one character brings to the rest of the characters as well as the setting. A top notch Kubrick film.

The Marriage Plot: A Novel
Worth Reading, Jeffrey Eugenid, Good Reading, Marriage Plot, Books Club, Books Worth, Novels, Reading Lists, The Virgin Suicide
Just finished 'The Marriage Plot" by Jeffrey Eugenides. I found the characters much more compelling than in his previous novels 'The Virgin Suicides' and 'Middlesex'. I am really enjoying the big, sweeping, American family sagas around at the moment. I have also read Jonathan Franzen's 'Freedom' this year and loved that. I found an interesting essay critiquing the female characters in both novels at www.thenervousbreakdown.com
Inaugural book selection of our new Book Club! The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides.
The Marriage Plot: A Novel. Don't let the title fool you, rather non-fluffy and a good read. Want to pick up Eugenides' other two novels (Middlesex and The Virgin Suicides).

The answer has potentially profound implications for understanding psychological disorders, such as schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety disorders. It’s an answer that is becoming increasingly familiar to anyone who thinks about the evolution of human behavior...

Worth Reading, Books Club, Books Worth, Caleb Carr, Fiction Books, Serial Killers, Favorite Books, Alienist, Historical Fiction
A serial killer is butchering boy prostitutes in New York City. Police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt enlists a reporter and groundbreaking psychologist (known as an "alienist" in 1896) to track the killer by compiling his psychological profile. The real mystery here, however, lies in finding out what happens in the sections of the novel that were abridged.
Best historical fiction book. Ever.

This is the true story of a private detective, Mr. Whicher, trying to solve a shocking murder at a family house in the Victorian era. Who did it?! And what is even more shocking is just how badly organised the police force was in those days, you could get away with anything if you were rich enough.

The only Ayn Rand book worth reading.
Have this... now just need to make time to read it.
currently reading this book. SO good.
First edition of We the Living by Ayn Rand. this was Rand's first book and it takes place during post-revolutionary Russia during a time of utter poverty and zero free speech. Wikipedia reminds me of the last line in the book. Look it up after you read the book. A must read.
This is one of my favorite books of all time. Ayn Rand is my homegirl. That's right! Homegirl.
Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert K. Massie is a beautiful (& alas tragic) story of the enchanting relationship between the royal couple, their struggle with their son's, the imperial hair's, hemophilia, & the fall of the Russian empire. The book is a testimony to how love may endure for years, but the Tsar's "god-given" power may be taken away from him in a day.

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America (Crown Publishers, ISBN 0609608444) is a 2003 non-fiction book by Erik Larson presented in a novelistic style. The book is set in Chicago circa 1893, intertwining the true tales of Daniel H. Burnham, the architect behind the 1893 World's Fair, and Dr. H.H. Holmes, the serial killer who lured his victims to their death in his elaborately constructed "Murder Castle."
Chicago World's fair meets serial killer.

Amazing book and movie
My favorite book ever. I feel like I'm totally immersed in every sense possible.
Excellent Book. I thought the movie did a good job considering time constraints.
Amazing Book! Movie comes does not do this justice!
I hesitantly post this because of the subject matter. But the imagery of the dresses, the quiet critique of the American's frowning on geishas yet we have trophy wives, for me makes it a book worth reading. It opened my mind. Any good book's goal is such.
Such a good book.

5. First edition cover of Rebecca- my favorite book from high school #momselect #backtoschool
Rebecca is a novel by English author Daphne du Maurier. A moderate bestseller, there were 2,829,313 copies of Rebecca sold between 1938 and 1965 and the book has never gone out of print. The novel is particularly notable for the character Mrs. Danvers, the fictional estate Manderley, and its opening lines: Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again . . .
