Charlene's Recent Updates

Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
"This book completely shattered my expectations and broke my heart.

I actually avoided reading this initially because it did not sound remotely interesting to me. I thought that I had better things to read than the woes of a fourteen year old girl...." Read more of this review »
An Incomplete Revenge by Jacqueline Winspear
"I really enjoy the character of Maisie Dobbs and find the mysteries that she investigates to be quite interesting, however, as I have noted in other reviews of this series, the author leaves me feeling a little flat. Sometimes I realize the myster..." Read more of this review »

Charlene Intriago and 1 other person liked Lisa's review of Orphan Train:
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
"This book was quite powerful. The stories of the two main characters kept me turning the pages. It's about Vivian who was brought to Minnesota on one of the orphan trains of the twenties and Molly, a seventeen year old who has bounced around numer..." Read more of this review »
Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
"Because of Winn-Dixie is such a beautiful and enchanting book. I loved reading this with my daughter. I am glad she was a little bit older when we read it (I think she was about 8) as it may have been a little heavy for her if she had been much yo..." Read more of this review »

Umberto Eco
“Books are not made to be believed, but to be subjected to inquiry. When we consider a book, we mustn't ask ourselves what it says but what it means...”
Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

Stephen King
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
Stephen King

Elizabeth Cady Stanton
“The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Adam Johnson
“Where we are from... [s]tories are factual. If a farmer is declared a music virtuoso by the state, everyone had better start calling him maestro. And secretly, he'd be wise to start practicing the piano. For us, the story is more important than the person. If a man and his story are in conflict, it is the man who must change.”
Adam Johnson, The Orphan Master's Son

Edith Wharton
“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that receives it.”
Edith Wharton
