Worth Reading, Movie Field, Lyrical Novel, Dreams, Books Worth
"W. P. Kinsella plays with both myth and fantasy in his lyrical novel, which was adapted into the enormously popular movie, 'Field of Dreams.' It begins with the magic of a godlike voice in a cornfield, and ends with the magic of a son playing catch with the ghost of his father. In Kinsella's hands, it's all about as simple, and complex, as the object of baseball itself: coming home."
The movie "Field of Dreams" was based on this book. It warms my heart and makes me happy.

TEEN PREGNANCY: Without a map by Meredith Hall. A New York Times best-selling account traces how the author's teenage pregnancy culminated in her abandonment by her New England family, her subsequent struggles for survival in the Middle East and her bittersweet reunion with the child she gave up for adoption.
Without a Map by Meredith Hall-- hands down one of the most well written memoirs I've ever read-- you can tell Hall is a poet. Haunting.
Without a Map, A Memoir by Meredith Hall: Hard to read. Sixteen year old girl shunned by her family in 1967 NH. Is lost and living recklessly for 19 years before starting over. Hard to believe, troubling and finally somewhat redemptive but still lots of unfinished business. .

Bossypants by Tina Fey - Listened to the audio book narrated by the author. It was funny, interesting, and thoughtful with some good advice thrown in. Worth a re-read/re-listen. :)

Funny book. I like Tina Fey's brand of humor: witty, dry and sometimes totally dorky.

5 stars ==> #36 of 50: "Mudbound"  by Hillary Jordan (340p). For daytime book club. LOVED this book. I was super anxious to discuss this one after I finished it and we did have a great discussion. One of my favorite books I've read this year.
Mudbound , by Hillary Jordan. An interesting book. At times it was a little hard to read. Other than that not bad.
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan - In Jordan's prize-winning debut, prejudice takes many forms, both subtle and brutal. It is 1946, and city-bred Laura McAllan is trying to raise her children on her husband's Mississippi Delta farm—a place she finds foreign and frightening. In the midst of the family's struggles, two young men return from the war to work the land.
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan. One of the best books I've read in a long time. No. Scratch that. One of the best books I've ever read.
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan. Excellent, thought-provoking historical fiction about the Jim Crow South.
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan. A surprise hit with our bookclub. Quick read too.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins... MY FAVORITE BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited to read the other two books and maybe watch the movie <3
The Hunger Games Triology by Suzanne Collins. In my top 10 list of books worth reading. Soon in theaters!
The Hunger Games is a great read and turned out better than I expected. The main characters are complex and the story is very multi-dimensional. Going to see the movie this afternoon! #hungergames #thehungergames
Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) - Not sure if I'm going to make it all the way through this one but at least wanted to try before the movie came out.
Pick for the week of 3/16/2015: "Favorite Book that is #1 in a Series" Bonnie: The Hunger Games (Book 1) by Suzanne Collins
My favorite book trilogy! A must read, especially if you plan to see the movies. 1st book: The Hunger Games, 2nd book: Catching Fire, 3rd book: Mockingjay.
The Hunger Games (Book 1) by Suzanne Collins. I gobbled this one up in about three days. Wish I had read it before I saw the movie, though!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. another book on my top ten list of all time favorite books. Its disturbing in the best possible way. Its a series that doesn't coddle you and isn't coated in sugar like many of the recent young adult litereature(Twilight). Its gritty and grim, and will leave you worn out from an emotional roller coaster. It has a depth to it that many YA fiction authors are afraid to use. And speaking of YA Fiction, this series isn't limited to youth, it can touch those of any age. Definitely a series worth reading.
