Not sure if this will end up being disturbing: Four years after Tom and Abby's 12-year-old daughter vanishes, she is found alive but strangely calm. When the teen refuses to testify against the man connected to her disappearance, Tom decides to investigate the traumatizing case on his own. Nothing can prepare him for what he is about to discover.

Jodi Picoult-Plain Truth One of my fave movies and good book. This was also the first book I read from Jodi Picoult.
"Do you have any favorite authors or titles? Why are these favorites?" Besides "My Sister's Keeper" being one of my favorite books of all time, Jodi Picoult is by far my favorite author. She writes from multiple character's perspectives and she jumps around which keeps me engaged and on my toes. I also love that her books are almost always centered around legal issues or hot button topics because they feel relevant.
Plain Truth by Jodi Piccoult - she is one of my new favorite authors!

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 Kitchen House an exciting historical novel. It had my heart beating fast.

A Child Called "It"
Worth Reading, Dave Pelzer, Books Movies, Books I Ve, Amazing Book, Sad Book, Saddest Book, Favorite Books
A Child Called It By Dave Pelzer... One of the most incredible stories I've ever read! The entire series is worth reading
A Child Called It: One Child's Courage to Survive. By Dave Pelzer. First book in a 3 part series of a boy that survived nearly fatal child abuse. The second book is about his time in foster care, and the third is about becoming the adult he is today. Very sad and heart grabbing, but worth reading
A Child Called "It" by Dave Pelzer was probably the saddest book I have ever read. I cried so many times while reading this, and got hotflash angry just as much if not more.
This is an amazing book! A Child Called "It" A Special Edition of the inspiring true story of a young boy's abusive childhood, from internationally bestselling author Dave Pelzer.
Dave Pelzer: A Child Called "It" I had to read this for a class in college... even though almost every page left me in tears, for some reason, it was well worth reading.
(Another person wrote) One of my favorite books. This book is a true story about one of the worst child abuse cases in California's history. It came to an end on March 5, 1973 when Dave Pelzer entered foster care. Dave begins his incredible story as an abused child with his rescue in part one of a series, A Child Called "It". Calling this book a "page turner" doesn't give it justice. Easy to read, but difficult to comprehend how any mother could treat her child this way.
A Child Called "IT": Dave Pelzer this was an amazing book to read, so eye opening!
A Child Called "It" by Dave Pelzer. It's a sad book but its so good

Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading and allows readers to showcase books they have discovered over the past week. This week I found a unique thriller and historical fiction book: First up, I read great things about The Last Letter from your Lover by Jojo Moyes...it sounds like a perfect beach read! Goodreads Summary: When journalist Ellie looks through her newspaper's archives for a story, she doesn’t think she'll find anything of interest. Instead she discovers a letter from 1960, written by a man asking his lover to leave her husband – and Ellie is caught up in the intrigue of a past love affair. Despite, or perhaps because of her own romantic entanglements with a married man. In 1960, Jennifer wakes up in hospital after a car accident. She can't remember anything – her husband, her friends, who she used to be. And then, when she returns home, she uncovers a hidden letter, and begins to remember the lover she was willing to risk everything for. Ellie and Jennifer's stories of passion, adultery and loss are wound together in this richly emotive novel – interspersed with real 'last letters'. I also discovered The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch. Goodreads Summary: A historical thriller set in Germany, 1660: When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. Whispers and dark memories of witch trials and the women burned at the stake just seventy years earlier still haunt the streets of Schongau. When more children disappear and an orphan boy is found dead—marked by the same tattoo—the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt into chaos. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the very woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth. With the help of his clever daughter, Magdelena, and Simon, the university-educated son of the town’s physician, Jakob discovers that a devil is indeed loose in Schongau. But it may be too late to prevent bloodshed. A brilliantly detailed, fast-paced historical thriller, The Hangman’s Daughter is the first novel from German television screenwriter Oliver Pötzsch, a descendent of the Kuisls, a famous Bavarian executioner clan.

The Memory Keepers Daughter. This is one of my favorite books. Love the subject . It is so human and real and easy to find a bit of each of us in all the main characters.
Story about a family that gives birth to twins, a boy/girl. Girl has Down Syndrome, daddy sends girl away, pretends shes born dead. GREAT read!
READ, April 2012. The Memory Keeper's Daughter, Kim Edwards. An intriguing premise and strong character study by a writer obviously gifted with words, but not quite enough to make the book soar above "inspiration for Lifetime movie" quality.
Very compelling story about twins separated at birth because one had down syndrome. It follows the lives of both children and the struggles all parties involved go through.
The Memory Keeper's Daughter is a brilliantly crafted story of parallel lives, familial secrets, and the redemptive power of love.
Fabulous story about a family that had a Downs Syndrome baby, was a great lifetime movie
1st book club book: The Memory Keeper's Daughter... excited to read it!
The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. This stunning novel begins on a winter night in 1964, when a blizzard forces Dr. David Henry to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy, but the doctor immediately recognizes that his daughter has Down syndrome. For motives he tells himself are good, he makes a split-second decision that will haunt all their lives forever. He asks his nurse, Caroline, to take the baby away to an institution. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child as her own. Compulsively readable and deeply moving, The Memory Keeper's Daughter is a brilliantly crafted story of parallel lives, familial secrets, and the redemptive power of love.

Another favourite book.
Hello fellow readers! It might not seem like it, but I have been reading all Summer long. While I don't remember every book I finished this Summer, there are some that stick out in my mind that I will share with you here. The first is my all time favorite book ever: Little Women. I had started this book a while ago and finally finished it while camping in New York this summer. I don't know if I had only read abridged versions or if I had just forgotten some of the details of the book, but there definitely seemed to be some additions that I had never read before, which was a surprise bonus! I love reading a book I have read before and discovering new details and treats! Another book/book series I read (and am currently finishing) is the Mistborn Series by Brandon Sanderson. I initially picked up Mistborn because the book club I am in was reading it. It is definitely not a book I would have picked up on my own. But that's the beauty of book clubs! They open your eyes to new books that you never would have read otherwise. I'm glad I purchased this book and decided to read it! It is AMAZING! The series follows Vin and her group of friends as they try to overthrow their ruler and establish a new government. Vin has "magic" powers that she discovers and perfects with the help of her mentor and friend Kelsier. I am currently reading the 3rd book in the series and have yet to be disappointed. The second book starts out a bit slow, but DON'T GIVE UP! I have also read a few books on couponing as I am trying to get better at it. I won't bore you with those details, but if you are interested in learning more or want to know the books I read just let me know! I am currently reading Now I See You by Nicole Kear for my book club. So far I am enjoying it, although there is some language. I'm not opposed to cursing, but sometimes I feel like it is a bit unnecessary. While I know that there are some things that can only be expressed with a well placed expletive, the extent to which she swears is starting to annoy me. I think that writers especially should be able to express themselves and their emotions more eloquently than using curse words every other line. I am willing to ignore it because this is a memoir and not a book written by a well established author. That is my only criticism so far. I will be sure to blog about Now I See You and will do my best to stay up to date with my blogging from here on out. I've had a busy summer, which you can read about here. Here's to recommitting myself to blogging! Happy reading! ~Tara
