The Kitchen Boy by Robert Alexander
" This was a great read for historical lit fans. I wasn't feeling good the last two days, so had lots of time of my hands to read this book. It really is such a page turner. Even though you know what's going to happen, you still are hoping for a dif... " Read more of this review »
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
" I loved this book and had been wanting to read it for some time. It covered a few of my favorite topics: England, islands, WWII, books, and the long lost art of letter writing. I loved all of the characters and got sucked into their stories. The o... " Read more of this review »
Sara and 1 other person liked Ali's review of The Catcher in the Rye:
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
" Fascinating. This had to be revolutionary writing in its time. Still, not my favorite pick-- I have never been able to completely give myself over to the "stream of consciousness" writing style that this novel is written in. "
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

It took me awhile to get into this book for some reason. I had heard it was a little like the Hunger Games series, so I had pretty big expectations, and it felt like it had a really slow start. I think the reader needed more information at the beginn...more

This was an amazing read full of plot twists and turns and unexpected endings. I couldn't put it down! There is a paragraph or two that gets a bit intense that you might want to skip over, but otherwise it's definitely reccomendable. I would describe...more

I really learned a lot about a parts of history I wasn't really familiar with-- particularly the fighting between Muslims and Jews and what started it. It basically tracks the history of a Jewish religious text, down through the hands it was passed f...more

I just finished this last night (I started it the afternoon before) and couldn't put it down. It was written so differently from anything else I'd read lately, narrated by "Death" himself. It was actually refreshing to read a Holocaust book from the...more
