“Your first family is your blood family and you always be true to that. That means something. But there’s another family and that’s the kind you go out and find. Maybe even by accident sometimes. And they’re as much blood as your first family. Maybe more so, because they don’t have to look out for you and they don’t have to love you. They choose to.” -Dennis Lehane, The Given Day

The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick. “Socially-awkward 40-year-old Bartholomew has lived with his mother all his life and has never held a job. When she succumbs to cancer, he channels her favorite actor, Richard Gere, to make her happy during her last days. Funny and sad, with moving, unsentimental prose and a quick, satisfying pace. Highly recommended.” --Michael Colford, Boston Public Library, Boston, MA
From the author of "Silver Linings Playbook", Matthew Quick delivers with "The Good Luck of Right Now". "When his mother dies, 38-year-old Bartholomew Neil, who doesn't know how to be on his own, discovers a letter in his mother's underwear drawer that causes him to write a series of highly intimate letters to actor Richard Gere, while embarking on a quest to find out where he belongs."

14. A book worth reading: Divergent by Veronica Roth. The sequel, Insurgent is out this month. This is the best of contemporary YA dystopian literature ...you know, if you're into that kind of thing. *It's true I've absolutely both books.
Book Review of Divergent, by Veronica Roth #divergent #veronicaroth #insurgent #hungergames #thehungergames #tris #four #tobias #novel #fiction #books #reading #youngadult
Divergent, by Veronica Roth. If you need to get a dystopian fix, young adult series seem to be the thing now. This is the first of a trilogy, and certainly worth reading. If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll probably enjoy this series as well. About a 16 year old girl who lives in Chigaco - where the city is divided into 5 factions. When you are 16, you choose your faction, a choice that will define who and what you are for good. I really enjoyed this first book - interesting concept.

Insurgent (Divergent Trilogy, #2) #Divergent #VeronicaRoth #Dystopian
Summer reading: For legions of The Hunger Games fans salivating for their next dystopian survival rations, the Divergent series offers toothsome fare. Insurgent, the sequel to the first book, plunges readers deeper into Tris Prior’s brutal world, where the only certainty has been her love for Tobias, a fellow Dauntless Faction member. Wasn't my favorite book, but it was still pretty awesome. The first book was better

Radiance of Tomorrow: A Novel #IshmaelBeah
When Ishmael Beah's A Long Way Gone was published in 2007, it soared to the top of bestseller lists, becoming an instant classic: a harrowing account of Sierra Leone's civil war and the fate of child soldiers that "everyone in the world should read" (The Washington Post). Now Beah, whom Dave Eggers has called "arguably the most-read African writer in contemporary literature," has returned with his first novel, an affecting, tender parable about postwar life in Sierra Leone.
Radiance of Tomorrow by Ishmael Beah This first novel from Sierra Leonean memoirist Ishmael Beah ("A Long Way Gone") relates the story of two friends who return to their village after the Sierra Leonean civil war has ended and find a chaos of poverty and crime. What future can you forge out of a past that has been destroyed? This lyrical novel will give book clubs much to discuss.

I liked the movie, but it seems to glance over some scenes, so I had to read the book. The book is much better than the movie! In Markus Zusak's novel, Death narrates it's observation of Liesel Meminger, a young girl in WWII Germany. She is fostered by a couple living just outside of Munich. She finds a book in the snow, can't read the words. With love and time she discovers the world of words and is hungry for more. Heartfelt and memorable, this is one of my favorite books now.

MURFIN: @barnesandnoble #TheBookThief #MarkusZusak #TheHolocaust The Book Thief is about genocide against the Jewish minority, as well as other minority groups. A German family hides a Jew in their basement to protect him from the Nazis. The textbook defines genocide as "the deliberate and systematic attempt at the eradication of a group of people, at the hands of whites through the introduction of disease, war, forced relocation, and cultural denigration" (Fitzgerald, 2014, p. 117). #Genocide

Picture this - a male librarian, 6 foot 7 inches with Tourette's syndrome who also happens to lift weights in his spare time. Not fiction, this is Josh's true story about growing up Mormon and dealing with Tourette's syndrome.
