    "the Strangeness of Beauty" - one of the best books I've read so far! Worth reading, even when it seems that there is no end ... ♥

  • Haley Evans

    Another touching Asian-American novel, this time following a Japanese family over the years leading up to WWII. Like Okada's No-No Boy, this book is very well-crafted, but it's a gentler read.

There's a reason movie-makers snatched up the film rights to these hits: they're good stories that will look amazing on the big screen. Read the books now, see the movies later, and then decide which one you think is better.

What young girl didn't read this or see the movie? sniff sniff sniff..... And I hate to tell you this Erich Segal, but love does mean you have to say you are sorry sometimes. What a load of crap that saying turned out to be!

A Wrinkle In Time - I may have to read this again. I read it as a teen or pre-teen, and it's crossed my mind soooo many times through the years. ~ My friend wrote that, but I feel the same way.

“She reminded me that the world was really one bee yard, and the same rules work fine in both places. ..Act like you know what you're doing, even if you don't. Above all, send the bees love. Every little thing wants to be loved.” ― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Love, love, love Bill Bryson and this is my favorite of all of his books. I've read it 3 times. A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail// Bill Bryson

The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. An adult Amir opens the novel in the present-day United States with a vague reference to one of these events, and then the novel flashes back to Amir's childhood in Afghanistan.

"Legend" by Marie Lu // I just finished reading this! Great read.

I love this adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. This full length novel was written before the classic tale was "Disneyfied" and it is well written.
