As Alice is all too aware, her elder daughter Emma is prone to inexplicable fits of rage, her husband Howard distrusts her maternal competence, and Prairie Center's tight-knit suburban community shows no signs of warming to "those hippies who think they can run a farm." A loner by nature, Alice is torn between a yearning for solitude coupled with a deep need to be at the center of a perfect family.

Of course Harry Potter has to appear on my Books Worth Reading board. Loved these!
If you haven't already read the famous Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, or have perhaps skimped out and just seen the movies, then you are seriously missing out on the easiest way to visit a whole different world filled with creatures you couldn't possibly imagine on your own. You'll fall in love with the world of wizardry and Hogwarts. The books are easy to read through, all of the loose ends get tied up, there is humor, romance, action, violence, friendship, drama, etc... it's more than most books could ever hope to offer!
My favorite book series!! So well written! Harry Potter Paperback Boxed Set, Books 1-7

Worth Reading, Richard Russo, Book Club, Small Town, Book Worth, Sigh, The Bridges, Book Covers, Reading Lists
Bridge of Sighs, Richard Russo. Recommended by Shannon Clark. Another incredibly subtle, moving novel from the writer of Empire Falls about a small town in upstate New York, told by a small-town guy named Louis Charles Lynch (aka “Lucy”). As 60-year-old Lucy “writes” the story of his town, he digs through his own and his wife’s memories of their lives, and in the process, uncovers some surprising revelations.
Bridge of Sighs All of Russo's books are worth reading and thinking about.
Meeting at 10am on Thursday, September 4th at the Elisabeth Lahti Library, Annie’s Book Club will discuss Bridge of Sighs. A classic Richard Russo novel, it is coursing with small-town rhythms and the claims of family, yet it is brilliantly enlarged by an expatriate whose motivations and experiences prove every bit as mesmerizing as they resonate through these richly different lives. Here is a town, as well as a world, defined by magnificent and nearly devastating contradictions.

Book Club, Worth Reading, Tanafrench, Book Worth, Tana French, Cassi Maddox, Novels, Dublin Murder, Murder Squad
The Likeness by Tana French (Adult Mystery). Detective Cassie Maddox transferred out of the murder squad and started a relationship with Detective Sam O'Neill, but she's too badly shaken to make a commitment to him or to her career. Then Sam calls her to the scene of his new case: a woman found stabbed to death in a small town outside Dublin. The dead girl's ID says her name is Lexie Madison, the identity Cassie used as an undercover detective. She looks exactly like Cassie.
Continuing where she left off in her electrifying first novel, In the Woods, Tana French aces this follow-up in the series. Dublin Murder Squad detective Cassandra Maddox is on a new case - but without her old partner. While some suspension of disbelief is required at the beginning, the way that Cassie masquerades as a dead woman in order to find her killer is absolutely mesmerizing.
The Likeness by Tana French - book club book #3!

Although Cezanne is ofetn called the Father of modern art, Manet arguably started the ball rolling. I love this picture and it is part of a series of paintings based around the theme of the balcony scene (Le Balcon).
