*Reading List. gtm. We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people-one in twenty-five-has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He/she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. 1 in 25 everyday Americans, is secretly a sociopath. They could be your colleague, your neighbor,..
“The Sociopath Next Door” by Martha Stout, Ph.D. --- Who is the devil you know? Is it your lying, cheating ex-husband? Your sadistic high school gym teacher? Your boss who loves to humiliate people in meetings? The colleague who stole your idea and passed it off as her own? … In the pages of “The Sociopath Next Door,” you will realize that your ex was not just misunderstood. He’s a sociopath. And your boss, teacher, and colleague? They may be sociopaths too. We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in “The Sociopath Next Door,” Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people often have undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in twenty-five everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath. How do we recognize the remorseless? One of their chief characteristics is a kind of glow or charisma that makes sociopaths more charming or interesting than the other people around them. They’re more spontaneous, more intense, more complex, or even sexier than everyone else, making them tricky to identify and leaving us easily seduced. Fundamentally, sociopaths are different because they cannot love. Sociopaths learn early on to show sham or fake emotions like a Hollywood actor, but underneath they are indifferent to others’ suffering. They live to dominate and thrill to win. But what do we do with that knowledge? To arm us against the sociopath, Dr. Stout teaches us to question authority, suspect flattery, and beware the pity play. Above all, she writes, when a sociopath is beckoning, do not join the game. It is the ruthless versus the rest of us, and “The Sociopath Next Door” will show you how to recognize and defeat the devil you know. GOODREADS SCORE: 4/5 Stars

To-Read List: Love Letter to the Dead - Ava Dellaira
If you're looking for a novel that will linger with you for days, The Children's Book Review's best selling Ya book is Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira.
I'm not typically too picky about YA book covers, but the covers I've listed below have really stood out and deserve some recognition.
Title: Love Letters to the Dead Author: Ava Dellaira Publisher: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux (BYR) Publication Date: April 1, 2014 It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more; though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was; lovely and amazing and deeply flawed; can she begin to discover her own path. My Review Love Letters to the Dead is one of those books that you won't want to put down, but you want to read it like you're pouring honey in winter - slowly. I wanted to cherish every single moment that I had with Laurel because I knew it would end all too soon, and I didn't really want it to end. I wanted to learn as much as I could about Laurel and her friends and family. I wanted to understand everything that made her tick. The characters in this stunning debut novel are fantastic. The plot is raw and real. I felt like what happened to Laurel could have happened to anyone I went to high school with because it's not too far removed from what happens to some teens. (I would know... My cousin died when she was thirteen, and seeing how her sister reacted was devastating.) I think the story of my cousins is part of the reason why I was so involved in this novel. I would recommend this novel to any teenager or adult who is looking for something realistic to read. I'd also recommend it to anyone who has ever lost someone unexpectedly because there is real pain in that, and I was able to really feel Laurel's pain as she grieves for her sister. It's a remarkable book that everyone should read. Love Letters to the Dead is beautifully written, and reminded me very much of one of my favorite books, The Perks of Being a Wallflower because it deals with growing up and dealing with some challenging situations. It's also an epistolary novel (just like Perks), and because of that, you feel an immediate connection to Laurel. Read this book. You won't regret it.

Fantasy Book Critic: “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern (Reviewed by Robert Thompson & Liviu Suciu)
Pinner said--This is the best book I have read in...I cant tell you how long. It's amazing. Everyone should ready it!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern-one of my favorite books and my students also love it!
A magical book that weaves a spell. One of my favorite books ever.
It's an amazing book. Everyone should ready it!
This is the first book of our new book club.
Must add to my to-read list
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a fantasy book that is incredibly focused on the setting, the Night Circus, right around the late 1800s early 1900s. I think the idea of a Night Circus that is only open from sun down to sun up that is so elaborate and magical as this one is described is pretty cool. I think I would go to it, however, I just wished there was a bit more to the story. The Night Circus is interesting. I can't say that I love it, but I can't quite say I hated it either. I would give this book 2.5 out of 5 stars. It is just over 500 pages long, and I was roughly 200 pages into it when I realized I was just reading to read it. I read a lot of pages but I didn't have any strong feelings for any of the characters or for much of the plot. I mentioned this to a friend. I was saying how the book wasn't character driven or plot driven. She then commented that it was driven purely by the setting, and she is correct. It is a 500 page book about the setting, and for me that was a bit much. I can say that the last 100 pages were more interesting b/c the story pulled away from the setting of the circus. We started to learn more about the characters and how they were all intertwined. Those last 100 pages I read all in one sitting b/c I was interested at this point. I'm just a bit disappointed it took the book that long to draw me in. I'm also a bit surprised with myself for lasting that long in a book that I didn't love. Usually, I stop at 100 pages if the book hasn't captured me. My motto is: There are way too many books to read a book you don't love. However, if you are intrigued with the book let me give you the book description from Amazon: "The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night. But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance." The Night Circus is interesting. I don't think I'll recommend it to many people, but it wasn't bad. Plus, for an adult literature book it was quite clean. Sure, there was alcohol drinking and one sex scene (though it wasn't blatantly described); however, for an adult literature book it was pretty darn clean. Have any of you read The Night Circus? Am I alone in my thoughts and or opinions of the book? What did you think?

Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us
Book gives many different profiles of sociopaths/psychopaths. Psychopaths are not just common criminals, they can be some of the most charming, successful persons one ever meets, but they can also destroy lives. Very good book.
Book Club, Reading Audiobooks, Nonfiction Book, Psychology Book, The Sociopath Next Door
The Sociopath Next Door. Scarily accurate insight into the characteristics of a sociopath, and just how common these people really are.
The Sociopath Next Door - read and recommend! I've actually known 2 sociopaths; one was in my family for a while. No scarier people. No heart and no conscious!
The Sociopath Next Door wow, what an eye opener. I would advise everyone to read this book, it may save you a lot of unwanted pain.
The Sociopath Next Door- Scarier than any horror flick I've seen. One in twenty-five people fit the bill? Makes me want to hide under my bed. A very interesting read on the human psyche.
The Sociopath Next Door - Another fascinating book I'm reading for this upcoming suspense series
"The Sociopath Next Door": This well-written book reveals that it is very possible that we have or will come into contact with a sociopath because one in twenty-five ordinary Americans is a sociopath who operates without a conscience. The author shows us how these people operate to deceive and manipulate trusting people. Of great value is the sociopathic-behavior checklist and suggested coping strategies. - highly recommend all to read
The Sociopath Next Door...my favorite psychology book. Very eye opening..
The Sociopath Next Door - read and recommend! Very enlightening.

Book Review: "Eragon: Inheritance Cycle" by Christopher Paolini
Google Image Result for http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/ce/Eragon_book_cover.png/200px-Eragon_book_cover.png
Eragon Book, Fantasy Books, Books I Ve, Book Review, Books Books, Favorite Books
Eragon just started reading it and it seems really cool. Its about a poor farm boy who finds a blue stone which turns out to be a dragon egg. Once the egg hatches the boy and dragon go on many adventures together
Eragon - Christopher Paolini. When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. FSP PAO
Eragon is the name of the book's protagonist, like Paolini fifteen when he starts his adventure. Eragon is an orphan living with his uncle and cousin in a small farming village in a remote corner of the kingdom of Alagaësia. This quiet life is shattered when a large blue stone materializes in front of Eragon. He is at first puzzled as to the nature of this stone, but when a baby dragon finally emerges, it occurs to Eragon that perhaps it was a dragon egg.
Eragon book is waaaaaaaaay better than the movie (agree)
Eragon. My most favorite book on the shelf!
Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy, until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save, or destroy, the Empire. (From Amazon.com) I have mixed emotions about this book. While I enjoyed it, there were somethings that bothered me. There was a lot of little things that leaned toward witchcraft such as fortune telling and some of the spells. The one character even admitted that she was a witch. There were other characters that were leaning that way also... Another thing was one scene where Eragon was healing the elf when he had to undress her. But the main thing that bothered me was that there was times when I thought of something as evil and Eragon passed it off as no big deal. There is an evil character but he doesn't really show up or really prove his evilness. I realize this is only the 1st book and it will most likely pick up in the other book. I guess what I'm really trying to get at is there was no real sense of an over powering good. Galbatorix was evil, as were Durza and the Urgals. The Varden wasn't exactly portrayed as good and Saphira, while she would do all she could to protect Eragon, she was still a very deadly creature that many people feared. I really did enjoy this book and the characters it seemed to be missing true meaning. Honestly what bothered me was the lack of something deeper, and that's Jesus. Most of the fantasy books I read are Christian. They don't always jump out like neon lights, there are plenty of little elements that point to Jesus. This book didn't have that because it isn't a Christian book. While reading this book I kept asking myself, "why can't I just like this book? What's wrong with me and popular books?" Books that are popular in the public eye are normally a red flag for me. Not all but a good portion of them. But I realized it's not me. It's the fact that Jesus has been driven out of our culture. He's treated like an inconvenience and that bothers me, as it should. Whole this book was excellent as far as plot, characters, and writing, it's lacking Jesus. This is not a book that I am going to be chomping at the bit to add to my personal library. I'm not even sure how quickly I'll be reading the next book... Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate this book, it was a good book and I enjoyed it, but it was missing a key element. Title- Eragon Author- Christopher Paolini Pages- Type of Book- Fiction Website- http://www.alagaesia.com/
Out of all the book series I have read, the Inheritance Trilogy has been one of the few to rise to my list of top three. Starting with Eragon, then Eldest, and lastly Brisingr Part 1 & Part 2, this series is one of the most well written book series I have ever read. Eragon is the story of a young boy, about 15, who comes across a blue stone in a notorious mountain range called The Spine. He ends up keeping this egg due to the fact that he can not sell it because no one wants something that came from the Spine. Everything goes well until the egg hatches, and out pops a dragon, who he later names Saphira, that will change his life forever. Eragon takes his place throughout the books slowly but surely as a Dragon Rider, set out to rid his world of Alagaesia from the evil King Galbatorix. These novels are full of fun, romance, action, mysterious plot lines, and suspense like very few other books bring. Eragon is diffidently a great read for the readers that want to have fantasy mixed with action in an easy to read trilogy. Praise for Eragon: -“An authentic work of great talent.”—The New York Times Book Review -“Christopher Paolini make[s] literary magic with his precocious debut.”—People -“Unusual, powerful, fresh, and fluid.”—Booklist, Starred -“An auspicious beginning to both career and series.”—Publishers Weekly -A New York Times Bestseller -A USA Today Bestseller -A Wall Street Journal Bestseller -A Book Sense Bestseller My Overall Score: 7.5/10 Critics: 9.0/10

High School, Amazing Book, Reading List, Katie O'Malley, Favorite Books, Young Girl
This fantastic book tells the story of Katie Davis, a young woman just out of high school who moves to Uganda to follow what God had for her....
"At age 18 and after a mission trip to Uganda, Katie Davis found herself so moved, so broken by the people and the children of Uganda that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. "I believe that we were each created to change the world for someone." Favorite Book Ever!!!
In her biography, Kisses from Katie, Katie Davis describes her journey and challenges over the past years in Uganda setting up Amazima. An amazing story of conviction, courage and persistence from such a young girl. Well worth a read!
Katie Davis traveled to Uganda for a short mission trip over the Christmas break of her senior year in high school. She found herself so moved by the Ugandan people and their needs that she knew it was her calling to return to care for them.
After she graduated from high school, Tennessee teenager Katie Davis didn't pack for college like many of her peers -- she headed to Uganda. After going on a short mission trip there just months earlier, she was so moved by the Ugandans that she felt it was her calling to return to help them. Though her family and friends didn't understand, Katie could not be deterred.
Kisses from Katie; be inspired like you've never been before, by Miss Katie Davis ~ became missionary in Uganda at age 18!, founder of Amazima Ministries, adoptive/real mom to 13 daughters whom she homeschools, auntie Kate to hundreds of Ugandan children as well as needy grown ups, author, Jesus lover.. I have followed her blog for years. Amazing story of a young girl and Gods calling in her life.
Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis On my to read list.
Alright ladies, if you have not read Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis, go grab a box of Kleenexes and prepare for an amazing story. This was an amazing book from the picture on the cover to the bounded tear stained last page. As much as I enjoyed this book, I had to stop reading it almost every page to take a break because it left me sobbing. I don’t believe it is just because I have seven adopted children either. Katie J. Davis speaks of Jesus’ love in ways that I had not heard expressed before. “More important than the very obvious might and power shown by Jesus' miracles is His love. He loved these people enough to do everything in His power to "make it better." He entered into their suffering and loved them right there.” ― Katie J. Davis, Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption Like Katie Davis, God has given me a passion for adoption. I strive to love like Jesus. I want to follow Him into brokenness and and show Christ's love to children who need it. Every day, I look into my children’s eyes and wonder, “Where would they be if they weren’t home?” Usually horrible answers come to mind: dead, on the streets, bounced around from abusive home to abusive home, abandoned, a slave. There are more children out there waiting for someone to protect them. It is not easy. Adoption is the hardest and most Christ-like love that I have ever come to know. Yet, it is a love that I could not live without. “The truth is that the 143 million orphaned children and the 11 million who starve to death or die from preventable diseases and the 8.5 million who work as child slaves, prostitutes, or under other horrific conditions and the 2.3 million who live with HIV add up to 164.8 million needy children. And though at first glance that looks like a big number, 2.1 billion people on this earth proclaim to be Christians." The truth is that if only 8 percent of the Christians would care for one more child, there would not be any statistics left. — Katie J. Davis, Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption For those families who are waiting on adoptive children, I am praying. For the families who help children in foster care or have chosen to adopt a child, I am praying. For those who don’t want to risk comfort, I pray that you will search your hearts, educate yourselves, and seek God in His call to step outside of your comfort zone today. For more information on foster care or adoption, please contact your local job and family services or contact one of the recommended foster and adoption agencies listed below: Foster Care: Diversion Adolescent Foster Care http://www.diversionfostercare.org/home.html Foster Care and Adoption: Catholic Charities http://catholiccharitiesusa.org/ Stateside and International Adoption: America World Adoption https://www.awaa.org/default.aspx See You In The Round!
