Like Water for Chocolate: A Novel in Monthly Installments with Recipes, Romances, and Home Remedies by Laura Esquivel (What was the best book your book club has read?)
Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel is my all-time favorite book because it was the first novel I read as a child. It also introduced me to my favorite genre magical realism.
Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel. Saw the movie years ago and loved it. Want to read the book. Another pinner wrote "No other book I’ve read conveys passion more clearly than Like Water for Chocolate. It is the plot’s driving force, it is a character in and of itself, and it’s ultimately powerful enough to set whole towns ablaze."
Como Agua Para Chocolate (Like Water for Chocolate) by Laura Esquivel One of my favorite books. I just wish I could create all the recipes from the book. AFS ;-)

Como agua para chocolate Like water for chocolate Laura Esquivel
I read this book years ago and for some reason it popped into my mind recently. It was a marvelous book and even included recipes in a most unusual manner. Later the book was made into a movie and I thought, "no way" this can't be done - but they did and it was a great movie as well. Like Water for Chocolate's full title is: Like Water for Chocolate: A novel in monthly installments with recipes, romances and home remedies. The phrase "like water for chocolate" comes from the Spanish como agua para chocolate. This phrase is a common expression in some Spanish-speaking countries and was the inspiration for Laura Esquivel's novel title (the name has a double meaning). In some Latin American countries, such as Mexico, hot chocolate is made not with milk, but with water instead. Chocolate is usually melted over a pot of boiling water. The saying 'like water for chocolate' alludes to this fact. It can be used as a metaphor for describing a state of intense feelings or – sometimes – sexual arousal. It may also be used to refer to anger, such as being 'boiling mad'. Tita, the main character, actually uses the expression in the book when she says 'estoy como agua para chocolate' (I am like water for chocolate) meaning that she is boiling mad. Source: Wikipedia If you need to find a little respite from the daily grind or just want to get your mind off the economy and the political antics of late, grab a copy of this book and enjoy the world of Tita, believe me she will get your mind off your troubles and take you away to a whole new place.

The Book of Lost Things by John Connelly It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s a twist on classic fairy tales — more specifically, the scary kind — but it’s really all about growing up and the loss of youth. Touching and poignant, but not overly sappy or sentimental, it’s just shy of 400 pages and an overall great read.

Kathryn Stockett, Author of The Help Obviously one of the best books I've read in a long time. I highly recommend the book. Movie was good, but the books was awesome!
There's a reason this title is on every book club reading list...it's very good! The compelling story takes place during an ugly time in our country's history and combines tragedy, hope and triumphs of humanity. Tough to put down.
excellent.. my 2nd favorite book. Movie was pretty darn good too.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett - I was told this was worth reading
The Help by Kathryn Stockett. One of my absolute favorite Books!
Awesome book & movie!
"There is so much you don't know about a person. I wonder if I could've made her days a little bit easier, if I'd tried. If I'd treated her a little nicer. Wasn't that the point of the book? For women to realize, We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I'd thought." -The Help, Kathryn Stockett, p. 492 We judge based on what we perceive, what we think we know. We set boundaries based on these abstract concepts. We separate others, group people and things where they "belong" in the categories that we create. Cheap. Classy. Smart. Dirty. Weak. Sexy. Executive. Kind. Blue collar. Creative. Rigid. Annoying. Compassionate. Awkward. Abrasive. Humble. Patriotic. Proper. Simple. Mature. Beautiful. And the list goes on. But in doing so, we separate ourselves. We think we belong in certain categories. We draw invisible lines. It's been a while since I've read a really good book (Modern Library's Top 100 Novels has had some let-downs), so I took a break from my reading list to read The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Someone had left the book (willingly) in our apartment mail room, so I picked it up (and will return it now that I've finished). Nothing better than a good free book! I can't speak for the movie, but if you haven't read the book, you must. It really is excellent. I challenge us all this week to remove one invisible line. When you read the above list of adjectives, what or who came to mind? Why? Is it fair to categorize them that way? Where do you belong?

Water for Elephants: A Novel I discovered this novel via one of my writing magazines, and I was intrigued by the author's interview. Upon purchasing the novel, I fell in love with the mystery, romance and history rampant in this fascinating portrayal of a turn of the century circus traveling the country by train. Forget wasting time on the movie... Go get the BOOK!
Water for Elephants: A surprisingly moving novel. It made me laugh, cry, and it was hard to put down!

“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.” You’ll probably recognize those words from Robert Munsch’s children’s book, Love You Forever. It’s among the best-selling kids’ books of all time, but it still tends to provoke very different responses among parents.

Sarah's Key #sarahskey A great WWII book from the point of view of a jewish child living in France, and a present day journalist researching WWII.
Such an amazing book. Sarahs Key - She closed the door on the little white face, turned the key in the lock. Then she slipped the key into her pocket. The lock was hidden by a pivoting device shaped like a light switch. It was impossible to see the outline of the cupboard in the paneling of the wall. Yes, he’d be safe there. She was sure of it. The girl murmured his name and laid her palm flat on the wooden panel. “I’ll come back for you later. I promise.” -From Sarah’s Key, page 9-

Today is my first Book Club Friday! I am hoping to get in the swing of reading again and I am sure I will find some great suggestions over at Blonde...Undercover Blonde's link up. The last book that I read was Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. I picked it up on the way to get a pedicure to have something to read and the main reason I settled on it was that it is a historical novel. The main story is fictional but the events that occurred are factual. I loved the book and I was unable to put it down once I started. It is the first book that I have read since becoming a mother and I saw what a different light I view things from. If you read it, you will see why. I also see that I must have been under a rock somehow missed the fact that it has been made into a movie. Here is an overview from Barnes & Noble: Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door to door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard—their secret hiding place—and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released. Sixty Years Later: Sarah’s story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own future. In Sarah’s Key, Tatiana de Rosnay offers up a mesmerizing story in which a tragic past unfolds, the present is torn apart, and the future is irrevocably altered. And here are some reviews: “This is a remarkable historical novel, a book which brings to light a disturbing and deliberately hidden aspect of French behavior towards Jews during World War II. Like Sophie's Choice, it's a book that impresses itself upon one's heart and soul forever.” –Naomi Ragen, author of The Saturday Wife and The Covenant “Sarah's Key unlocks the star crossed, heart thumping story of an American journalist in Paris and the 60-year-old secret that could destroy her marriage. This book will stay on your mind long after it's back on the shelf.” –Risa Miller, author of Welcome to Heavenly Heights I hope that if you pick it up you love it also!

The Book Thief is the story of Liesel Meminger. Liesel is almost ten when she ends up in Molching with Hans and Rosa Hubermann, her new foster parents. It is 1939. In Nazi Germany. Through their eyes we see Hitler and Nazi Germany; we experience the atrocities and the small kindnesses. Zusak’s story is mostly about everyday things: hunger, pettiness, laughter, hope, cruelty and kindness. Loved it.
Just read it!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This is a story about a girl in WWII Germany who steals books before they can be burned and shares them with her neighbors and a Jewish man who is hidden in her basement. The story is narrated by Death and is appropriately dark, but manages to be uplifting at the same time. So far, my favorite book read in our book club....

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil-Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense?

Yamina's favorite books books-worth-reading
Gone with the Wind is a novel written by Margaret Mitchell, first published in 1936. The story is set in Clayton County, Georgia, and Atlanta during the American Civil War and Reconstruction era. It depicts the experiences of Scarlett O'Hara, the spoiled daughter of a well-to-do plantation owner, who must use every means at her disposal to come out of the poverty she finds herself in after Sherman's March to the Sea. A historical novel, the story is a Bildungsroman or coming-of-age story, with the title taken from a poem written by Ernest Dowson. Gone with the Wind was popular with American readers from the onset and was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published and in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the second favorite book of American readers, just behind the Bible. More than 30 million copies have been printed worldwide. Written from the perspective of the slaveholder, Gone with the Wind is Southern plantation fiction. Its portrayal of slavery and African Americans is controversial, as well as its use of a racial epithet and ethnic slurs. However, the novel has become a reference point for subsequent writers about the South, both black and white. Scholars at American universities refer to it in their writings, interpret and study it. The novel has been absorbed into American popular culture. Margaret Mitchell was imaginative in the use of color symbolism, especially the colors red and green, which surround Scarlett O'Hara. Mitchell identified the primary theme as survival. She left the ending speculative for the reader, however. She was often asked what became of her lovers, Rhett and Scarlett. She did not know, and said, "For all I know, Rhett may have found someone else who was less difficult." Two sequels authorized by Mitchell's estate were published more than a half century later. A parody was also produced. Mitchell received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for the book in 1937. It was adapted into a 1939 American film. The book is often read or misread through the film. Gone with the Wind is the only novel by Mitchell published during her lifetime
