The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd...absolutely loved it! Heartbreaking and inspirational!
Sue Monk, Women Right, Wings, The Reader, Book Clubs, Historical Fiction, Monk Kidd, Oprah Book Club, The Secret
The Invention of Wings. Wow, just wow! I so loved Sue Monk Kidd's book The Secret Life of Bees that I couldn't wait to get my hands on this new book. And, boy, it did not disappoint!!! Again, Kidd gives an intelligent insight into slavery and freedom and women's rights but tells a beautiful story in the process. The early 1800s were a time for laying groundwork. The characters of Sarah, Nina, Charlotte and Handful are so richly drawn. Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down.
The Invention of Wings (Sue Monk Kidd) - Oprah compares this book to The Help and I'm not sure why. The Help is one of my favorite books and it is difficult for any book to measure up to the way the author puts the reader into the story. While The Invention of Wings is worth reading - Cain River and The Secrets of Mary Bowser, in my opinion, are much better works, which could be because the latter two books are fictional works about women who actually lived.
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd; featured in Oprah's book club 2.0 in 2014
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. I read this great historical fiction novel in one short weekend. Entertaining and educational. What was it like to be a woman, an abolitionist, and a pioneer for women's' rights living in Charleston, SC?!
Reading now, so good!
Worth Reading, Racket, Book Worth, Judges, Johngrisham, New Book, Book Covers, Country, John Grisham
"The Racketeer" by John Grisham. "Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five." How can you POSSIBLY resist that grabbing tagline? We love Grisham's fast-paced legal thrillers!
Re-Pin this Pinterest exclusive – the cover of John Grisham's next legal thriller, THE RACKETEER, available October 23, 2012 from Doubleday. Pre-order here to get it the day it comes out: http://www.randomhouse.com/book/213069/the-racketeer-by-john-grisham Can't wait for his new book!!!

Sisterland: A Novel -just added to my summer reading list- love this author!
Curtis Sittenfeld, "Sisterland": From an early age, Kate and her identical twin sister, Violet, knew that they were unlike everyone else. Kate and Vi were born with peculiar “senses”—innate psychic abilities concerning future events and other people’s secrets. Though Vi embraced her visions, Kate did her best to hide them. - Barnes & Noble, No. 8 - July 1, 2013
Best Summer Books & Summer Reading 2013 | Publishers Weekly -- Sisterland, Curtis Sittenfeld
Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld I liked the twin dynamic and the main storyline. It was a long read but I wanted to finish it and find out what happened. Did not think it was as good as her last book or Prep but worth reading.
Just finished. Great story!

Thought provoking. Worth reading, (i found the intertwined campire story to be a distraction.) The Storyteller: Jodi Picoult
The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult October Book club. Got half way through it and looked up the plot on Wikipedia. I was a little confused about the plot, but basically very disappointed. This is my second attempt at Jodi Picoult. That's it for me. I suppose if you like her you'll like this, her writing style is terrific, but the plot was not.

One Second After Well worth reading
One Second After - March book club
Book Review - One Second After (an EMP attack) by William R. Forstchen- a must read
One of my favorite reads ever! New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real...a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages...A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). A weapon that may already be in the hands of our enemies. Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future...and our end.
Despite poor reviews, I am loving this book so far...about half way through.
Jurassic Park, Hard Time
Loved it! Could not put it down. The last one of his books I stayed up all night reading was Jurassic Park and The Lost World. If you like/love Crichton it's a must read.

"After reading the book jacket, the prologue, the entire text and the afterwards, I am going to recommend this book to everyone. THIS IS NOT A STEPHEN KING HORROR THRILLER. Though it might be considered Sci-Fi, it really is all in all, a great piece of fiction by one of the greatest writers of his generation", quote by Adam Knight , this IS going to be next!
I've never read a Stephen King book before. Thought I'd make this one, about a man who time travels to stop Kennedy's assassination, my first.

A must read. Not a typical Stephen King. More history, than horror. One of my favorite books for a long time.
I'm not generally a Stephen King fan, but this book is well worth reading for those who lived through that fateful year.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold -- good book
The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold // "The details of the crime are laid out in the first few pages: from her vantage point in heaven, Susie Salmon describes how she was confronted by the murderer one December afternoon on her way home from school. Lured into an underground hiding place, she was raped and killed. But what the reader knows, her family does not. Anxiously, we keep vigil with Susie, aching for her grieving family, desperate for the killer to be found and punished."
