I finished The Time Traveler's Wife a few days ago and I still cannot stop thinking about it. The love between Henry and Clare is heartbreakingly beautiful. There is love, laughter, tragedy, and sorrow all through the book. I must warn those with sof ...more

This is the first book I've read this year that I absolutely loved the ending! I really have nothing to complain about with this book. Hosseini's characters were lovable and easy to relate even though I've never been in a situation at all like the on ...more

I think this is my favorite book I've read so far this year. Patchett's writing is so beautiful that it brought me to tears at certain points. Her novel brings up interesting points of prejudices we can build up and what a world could be like without ...more

I have really mixed feelings about this novel. McEwan's descriptions of love are some of the most beautiful things I have ever read but at other points his descriptions get a little too wordy. It is definitely not a quick light read. Some chapters ar ...more

From the opening line I was in love with this book. The journey that Walls takes us on is an emotional roller coaster. I laughed a lot, cried a little, and was so frustrated at other times that I had to put the book down. The style in which Walls has ...more

Words cannot express the feelings that are evoked from this novel. People kept telling me it was a dark book but I didn't understand what that meant until I read it for myself. The relationship between the man and his son is so deep because they only ...more

This book was just meh. I didn't love it and I didn't despise it. At first it was hard to get into the switching view point and by the end I had definite opinions as to which characters I would rather read. Boyle's ideas about illegal immigration are ...more

I don't know why I loved this book so much but I did. Russo has done an excellent job of creating characters you can relate to and a few characters that you will just hate along with the main characters. The end is exciting with a few twist that I di ...more
