China Dolls, by Lisa See, set in the "Chop Suey Circuit" of San Francisco right before World War II. June 2014. Whenever I think Lisa has written something that is too light-weight she hooks me and I discover it is not light at all. D.W. Historically good and a page turner.
I heard about "China Dolls" on NPR. This is another one to possibly add to the "to read" list.

China Dolls by Lisa See. LibraryReads pick June 2014.
I am, by all accounts, a fairly voracious reader. I love books of a variety of genres and writing styles. I do, of course, have preferences and pet peeves. One thing I do enjoy in fiction books is an ending that ties up loose ends. While I appreciate a reader desiring to create their own version of a character's future, I highly value when an author delivers me to the end of the journey I embarked on when I cracked open the cover. And with certain novels, I become so intimate with characters and so invested in their outcomes that an ambiguous ending results in a few curse words directed at the author and frustration that seems to permeate my day. "China Dolls" hooked me with well-written characters, trials and tribulations they experienced that were wholly believable, and an ending that left me satisfied and breathing a sigh of relief. Lisa See's novel is the story of Helen, Ruby, and Grace, three young women living in San Francisco in 1938, who meet and become dancers at the Forbidden City, a nightclub near Chinatown. Though they come from very different backgrounds, the three become fast friends, navigating the world of prejudice of their Oriental backgrounds and their own dreams of the future while battling the rollercoaster of their pasts. Helen comes from a privileged and highly respected family living in Chinatown's largest compound. Grace hails from the Midwest and went to San Francisco seeking a new life away from her physically and emotionally abusive father. Ruby is a seductive vixen with no qualms about using her wiles to get ahead. Each of them, though, harbors secrets which lead to chasms within their friendships and tumultuous years ahead. The novel is written in first person accounts by the three, each one narrating various different chapters throughout. It is easy to get wrapped up in their storylines, to cheer them on when they do good, to get frustrated when they are being naive, or to feel disdain when they do something offensive. The story ends 50 years later, when the characters gather together for a 50th Anniversary show for the Forbidden City. It does a phenomenal job of resolving the fates of all the characters, tying up all the loose ends in a neat bow, just the way I like. I received the book as an ARC from the publisher. It will be on sale on June 3, 2014, but is available for pre-order through Amazon and other booksellers now. I highly recommend getting this book and embarking on this journey, courtesy of Lisa See.
Roxane Gay pulls no punches in her brutal debut novel. Mireille Duval Jameson, daughter to one of the richest men in Haiti, is kidnapped and held for 13 terrifying days while her father refuses to pay her kidnappers. Violent and visceral, An Untamed State dares you to look away, knowing that you won’t be able to put it down.

If 'Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret' Happened in 2014, Here's What It Would Look Like
Flower Book, Childhood Memories, God It S, Judy Blume, Favorite Books, Young Girl, Memory Lane
As a young girl i loved Judy Blume books..and they are still around and being read by the young girls today!
For my girls...Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume - All of her books are the Best for a young girl to read this one is the best one.
1970 – Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret, Judy Blume No one gets teenagers like Judy Blume. For so many young people, this book was a revelation, and it will probably remain a cultural touchstone for all time. Also recommended: Play It As It Lays, Joan Didion; The Bluest Eye, Toni Morrison; Deliverance, James Dickey; In the Night Kitchen, Maurice Sendak
One of the first books I read as a pre-teen. It was the first of many. Still one of my favorite books.
"Are You There God, It's Me, Margaret": This was one of my favorite books as a young girl
Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. Childhood memories. Loved this too.
Gorgeous 70's illustration
Trip Down Memory Lane
For a long time, I thought I had read Judy Blume. If you're a bookish kid, and I was, of course you've read something by her. As I got older, I thought about it, read about her books, looked at her catalogue, and realized that I hadn't ever read one of her books. How did that happen? How did I read, and read, and READ, and not one of those authors was her? As an adult, I wondered if I should fix that gap in my reading life, especially since I felt that in just a few years, this was the kind of book my daughter might be reading. Then, the day after I had finished reading Slaughterhouse-Five, having NO idea what I should be reading next (big book hangover), there it was on a big book table, marked down... A children's classic missing from my life, on sale! It called to me and I took Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. home and started reading it the same day. I could have easily read the story in one day. It’s not long; reading it in one day would have been a snap. The plot flows, follows Margaret along on her pre-teen adventure. Moving, boys, breasts, and periods, what is the next disaster going to be? I really sympathized with Margaret, thought she was crazy, mean, nice, and hormonal. I related with Laura Danker. I have known more than one Nancy. We have all learned the lesson that looks aren’t everything, but it’s hard to learn that at twelve. There’s something about finding out a book is banned that makes me want to read it more too. I’ve read so many articles and lists about banned books and Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. is so often on them. That was one of the reasons that if I were to only read one Blume, this would have to be the one. I can tell why it was banned. Periods and God. No one wants to read about a girl trying to discover those two things. Gross, right? Also, blasphemous. I actually thought that Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. is a great book to help a young person learn about those things. The ending was the only thing I wasn’t completely happy with. It felt too open, there was too much left unsaid. It's not like I need books to wrap up every loose end, I just like books to feel finished. Maybe part of my problem was that there were about 20 more pages after the end of the story, previewing another of Judy Blume's books. I didn't know that, so I turned the page expecting more story. It was a very disappointing moment, and not the first time that has happen, when I saw what was on the next page. Please publishers, note somewhere that there's a preview of another book included so I'm not sad at the end. Thanks. I am glad I finally read this book. It’s a modern classic, fun, sweet and something I’ll be recommending to my children and my friends’ children and anyone who hasn’t read it. I know Blume has written books for adults, I’m interested now in reading one of those. If anyone is missing Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. from their reading lives, you should fix it.

"If you want to be a writer," Stephen King tells us at the beginning of his classic craft book On Writing, "you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot." We think it's pretty fair to say that King has done both — and so have most other famous authors.

A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess. Cover by David Pelham, illustrator and former art director at Penguin books
Georgia says: "A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess (1962) but the 1972 cover designed by David Pelham, which has become truly iconic. This is a unique novel that, thanks to Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film, has become a fundamental cultural touchstone, and this cover evokes that aesthetic so is instantly recognisable and taps into the squeamish eye motif of the narrative."

blacksandbooks: The Sellout Paul BeattyISBN 0374260508A biting satire about a young man’s isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court, Paul Beatty’s The Sellout challenges the sacred tenets of the United States Constitution, urban life, the civil rights movement, the father-son relationship, and the holy grail of racial equality—the black Chinese restaurant.Born in the “agrarian ghetto” of Dickens—on the southern outskirts of Los Angeles—the narrator of The Sellout resigns himself to the fate of lower-middle-class Californians: “I’d die in the same bedroom I’d grown up in, looking up at the cracks in the stucco ceiling that’ve been there since ‘68 quake.” Raised by a single father, a controversial sociologist, he spent his childhood as the subject in racially charged psychological studies. He is led to believe that his father’s pioneering work will result in a memoir that will solve his family’s financial woes, but when his father is killed in a police shoot-out, he realizes there never was a memoir. All that’s left is the bill for a drive-thru funeral.Fueled by this deceit and the general disrepair of his hometown, the narrator sets out to right another wrong: Dickens has literally been removed from the map to save California from further embarrassment. Enlisting the help of the town’s most famous resident—the last surviving Little Rascal, Hominy Jenkins—he initiates the most outrageous action conceivable: reinstating slavery and segregating the local high school, which lands him in the Supreme Court.Let’s Connect!
